Western Herbal Medicine Classes
New classes offered by Natural Health & Wellness School of Natural Medicine.
The first class is a short introduction to the use of herbs and is a pre-requisite for the Second.
"Back Yard Medicine"
This program is offered on Sunday afternoons from 1:00 until 4:00 PM. I am sure that we will be staying late most days with questions and answers, but that time is not required as part of the program.
The next class will start May the 28th and run threw mid-July.
The Back Yard Medicine class is a VERY hands on program that will introduce participants to locally grown and or widely available Herbs and plants that can be utilized to better your health.
The curriculum covers:
- Identification of over 60 different herbs and plants
- How to grow many of the Herbs and plants discussed in the program
- How to use the herbs in ways such as:
- Teas , Tinctures,
- Syrups , Salves
- Compresses , Poultices
- Infusions , Oils
- Ointments , Butters
- Wines , Baths
Tuition: The program cost is $150, and a book of all the slides used and information covered in the program is made available.
This may seem costly, but that breaks down to $50 a class or about ten dollars an hour for a Oklahoma Private Vocational School Certified program.
The second new class is a continuation of the first class. It will also meet on Sunday in the afternoon and continue on for an additional 5 more weekends.
