Wild Rose College Of Natural Healing – Herb and Nutrient Drug Interactions
This course is an information based course only. There are no quizzes nor is there a final exam to complete. Just go through all of the videos for the course and once you're done, you'll be awarded the certificate. Enjoy the learning! For you, did it all start with a soothing cup of Chamomile tea before bedtime, or are you into very sophisticated extracts used to stimulate particular portions of the human immune system? Those of us who are practitioners or aspiring practitioners all have our stories. But one thing is for sure: no one should ever underestimate or over-romanticize the interest in or efficacy of herbal medicine.
We believe there are four issues which need to be kept in mind as you read the materials in this course: interest in herbal medicines is expanding rapidly; because of the growing number of herbs, sources and manufacturers, quality varies dramatically; there are many schools of thought on the subject of herbs; and there is no easy way to categorize information about herbs. Also, along the way, we will explore quality control in trying to get them into a useable form by the consumer.
