Isn’t it time you reconnected with the natural world?


Gain the knowledge you need to properly employ traditional herbal medicine practices in your life with our immersive Discovering Herbal Medicine course.

As a species, we have lost touch with the natural ways that our ancestors survived. We now turn to quick fixes and harsh chemicals to solve our health problems. But it doesn’t have to be that way. Natural herbal remedies are still very much a viable antidote to many health issues. The trick is to know how to wield their power properly. This Discovering Herbal Medicine (DHM) course is designed to help you finally take control of you and your family’s health and harness the full potential of herbal remedies.

A Taste of What’s Inside


“I don’t like using drugs – I want to learn more about herbs.”

 “I want to have more control over my health and the well-being of my family and to be able to administer simple natural remedies.”  

“I want to know more about which natural remedies to use for everyday ailments.” 



These are some of the things our previous course participants have cited as their reasons for signing up. You’ve probably wondered about one or more of these at some point as well. 

That’s because the allure of natural remedies is universal. It’s innate within us to know there is power there, but there are few college courses designed to take you through the thousands of different options available to you. It can be a lot to sift through and discover.

This course is the answer. It’s a yearlong, self-paced journey through the world of herbal medicine. Along the way, you’ll discover the best remedies for everyday ailments, serious illness, and everything in between.

You’ll become an expert in the field, able to recommend products to help better care for the people you love around you.

Are you ready to embark on your herbal medicine journey? 


What You’ll Learn In The Course

The Discovering Herbal Medicine course has been around for over 40 years.

Originating in England through the inspired vision of renown herbalist Hein Zeylstra, his legacy included introducing the modern world to the relevance of ancient herbal remedies. Through the years, DHM has been updated and improved with the important addition of the experienced nutritionist, Dr. Ann Walker. Each of the 12 modules covers a different area of the human body and consists of an introduction by Ann Walker, a worksheet to complete alongside the lesson, and a quiz to test your knowledge before moving on.

Throughout the course,
you’ll learn about:

(accessible via phone or computer)

  • The origins and philosophy of western herbal medicine, the structure and function of the human body, and the foundation of health from a diet perspective.

  • What herbs to grow, harvesting, drying and storing your own herbs; herbal products sales in Europe and the US, and how to prepare herbs for yourself as well as family and friends.

  • Applying more than 60 different herbs to solve various health problems, how to distinguish minor ailments from more serious health conditions that need professional healthcare, current research into popular over-the-counter herbal products, like Echinacea, and much, much more
