Steep yourself in the magical world of plant medicine.
We teach clinical, global herbalism and medicinal mushrooms.
Many herbal practice classifications include clinical, western, evolutionary, planetary, and more.
Every nation, country, state, and culture has its own herbal practices as a form of indigenous medicine handed down over eons, much of which was learned from observing animals self-medicating with plants.
You'll learn all of this and more inside the Doctorate of Clinical Global Herbalism® where you'll gain familiarity and practice knowledge of every single medicinal herb on the planet.
That's what makes it the doctorate of clinical global herbalism and not a minor certification.
Here you're learning to become an herbal clinician who confidently integrates plant medicine into their practice model as part of a multi-disciplinary approach taught only at Rockwell.
Herbal medicine is the first line of defense against illness in most developing countries, where access is limited to conventional medicine, sometimes called medical deserts.
It's miraculous how efficient and effective herbalism actually is.
Herbal medicine is one of the greatest supporters of the human system.
It creates a rich environment and a nourishing, supportive foundation for the body and aids in prevention. It's both curative and restorative.
Plants as greenspace are clinically proven to be therapeutic to the human psyche. Plants provide us with lush, even miraculous medicinal and cosmetic benefits.
This program begins with seasonal herbalism so you can learn how work with natural cycles to create mutual support and connection with the plants who make 'plant medicine' possible.
You'll learn ethical wildcrafting, foraging, and herbal medicine making.
Then you'll begin more extensive study of plants from across the globe, ending with the study of medicinal mushrooms for emergency, prevention, and support.
Clinical herbalism crosses over with traditional naturopathy in essential oils, aromatherapy, and sometimes iridology, the latter of which can be found in our certified holistic health module.
You'll study essential oils and aromatherapy in the coursework here for herbal clinicians.
Both traditional naturopathy and herbalism crossover with spiritual medicine in muscle testing (a type of kinesiology) and flower essences, a form of energy medicine. You'll learn how to make your own plant and flower essences in the Doctorate of Spiritual Medicine.
We teach you the basics of growing herbs and you'll discover easy ways to support, nurture, and cultivate the land based on the practice principle of 'rewilding' to help native species and ecosystems thrive and flourish once again.
You'll learn how to make herbal remedies and beauty products, such as hydrosols, rose and flower waters, facial masks, bath bombs, and more.
From there, you can formulate your very own products with the herbs and ingredients closest and most meaningful to you.
Connect more fully with nature.
At its fullest expression, herbalism is also an environmental practice built on profound reverence, devotion, and respect for ecology and natural ecosystems.
Herbalists seek and create balance and prize oneness with nature.
In the art of botanical medicine, we believe every illness and condition known to humankind has a matching herb or herbs. Wonderful to know, right?
We think so.
