The Human Path has developed a thorough and comprehensive online program for the herbology certification. The online program includes all of the Level 1 Herbal Medics Foundations material with videos, documents, online homework and exercises along with many resources that will supplement the understanding and de-mystifying process of herbology.

During this online course you will learn at least 80 - 100 medicinal herbs, found (and grown) throughout North America and the Southwest USA. You will learn many herbs that can be bought online to stock your own home herbal clinic with. You will also be required to research and learn what is growing in your own local ecosystem (in your own back yard). In fact, counting the herbs used in all the formulas for tinctures, salves, liniments, etc., there are well over 120 medicinal herbs introduced through this course.

Just as importantly, you will learn to prepare and use these medicinal plants. Whether you have a western (or other) medical background or not, you will be able to confidently begin to use medicinal plants that you grow, harvest or buy, for yourself, friends and family. You will gain skill and knowledge specific to medical issues you would most likely encounter around the home or in a post-disaster or remote situation with limited or non-existent orthodox medical care.

IN THIS VIDEO: Sam Coffman talks about the online, home-study, Herbal Medic level 1 program and what it has to offer as an online education in effective plant medicine for anyone and everyone.

*Note* THE EMERGENCY HERBAL FIRST AID KIT: If you are interested in herbal medicine at home, you may also be interested in reading more about and purchasing this herbal first aid kit that contains dozens of herbal preparations as well as a baseline trauma and first aid kit that Sam has created from his years of experience in the field as a US Special Forces (aka Green Beret) Medic.
