I’ve researched several schools where you can get certified in the practice of herbal medicine and I’ve found them to be very expensive. It varies between $1000 to upwards of 20k. This isn’t in my budget at the current time, so I’m going to opt for the self taught route for now. In a future post I will try and highlight which schools I find most favorable because I fully intend to get certified, but I’ve got to finish my business degree before I can take out any more loans. I love the idea of having a degree in alternative medicine, but not as much as I love my business degree. I’ve only been dabbling in herbs for a short time, but business and I go way back and we have a very good relationship. Back to the subject at hand, I’ve been browsing Amazon for some books on herbalism, materia medica, etc and I think I’ve found a few good ones. I already have a couple ebooks as well, so that’s a start. A few things I’d like to know are how many t-shirts these hippies had to sell to pay for an herbal education? Do you have any book recommendations? What has been the most useful thing you’ve learned so far?
