This is not a master herbalist program, rather it is a series of natural health remedy's for specific ailments. There is no background information about herbs, how they work in the body, what parts of the plants are used and why...nothing. It does not teach how to choose herbs and only discusses specific problems.
The whole course is just recipes to use things like honey, lemon and barley. Last I checked none of these are herbs!
Also, it's pretty much one LONG advertisement for Bach's Rescue Remedy without any explanation of what the ingredients are or how the product actually works. Just recommendation after recommendation to use that product instead of explaining how to chose herbs that will work for all those issues.
In short, save your money and buy an herbalism book. You'll actually learn how and why to use herbs.
I took the master herbalist course. I was able to study at my own pace. I took detailed notes and made a study guide to use later during my practice. The course comes with detailed ways to use herbs and recipes for certain conditions.
Rudimentary information that I would call "Master Herbalist". The course took me 2 hours to complete which is NOT what I would expect for a "Master Herbalist" course. The ad is misleading in that you have to pay $27 dollars plus shipping for the official certificate of completion which is required for continuing education requirements for healthcare providers. Spend your money somewhere else.
This educational program is like reading a self-help book. It has introduction videos before each module. The actual lessons are reading the information and then taking a brief exam after each module. You earn a certificate at the end of the completed course of study. Once you save and continue on the exam questions you can not go back to change your answers before submitting the exam.
