is a Master Herbalist?
|Herbs for Human Health contains some of the information I have learned in my years of studying alternative herbal remedies.
What is a Master Herbalist?
A master herbalist
is a person who has spent a great deal of time
studying various subjects involving herbal remedies.
It can take years to reach that level. Aside from the actions of the individual herbs, a master herbalist must also know some botany, and a great deal of biology.
Does One Become a Master Herbalist?
Studying under another
master is the best way to become a master herbalist.
Once a person has achieved that level, they are
capable of teaching others.
Sometimes, as in my
case, years of study on my own allowed me to move
quickly through the program. The more we know
the better. I am continually learning new things about herbs and what they can do.
Did You Become a Master Herbalist?
My journey to becoming
a master herbalist started with my grandmother,
who owned and operated a greenhouse. When we were
growing up, my sister, brother and cousins would
play under a shelf she had set up with dirt and
tonka toys. Occasionally, we’d be allowed
to help out. I can remember helping my grandfather
make plant boxes, or helping fill the wheelbarrow
with dirt, and when he’d emptied it getting
to ride back to the dirt pile in it. My grandmother knew a great deal about alternative herbal remedies, and often used them to take care of minor ailments.
My mother was a registered
nurse, and that pointed me toward the more scientific
approach to herbal remedies. By age sixteen, I
was working under her in a private care facility,
and learning different aspects of medical care.
This whetted my appetite, and I began to read
books on herbal remedies as well as subjects like
anatomy and physiology.
My real start towards
achieving master status was when our oldest daughter
was born. As a small child, she would eat anything,
and when it was plant based, getting information
about potential toxicity was difficult. Poison
control couldn’t tell by my description,
and suggested I contact a nursery. The best the
nursery could do was tell me it wouldn’t
kill a horse. They took the point that horses
weigh at least half a ton more than a three year
old and have very different digestive systems.
However, that wasn’t much of a help.
to the science involved in herbal medicine, I
began to study botany and chemical constituents
of the plants. Many times, at least one chemical
in a plant would be similar to or the same as
a commercial preparation…such as aspirin.
I spent many years studying on my own before deciding
to get more formal education on the subject. In
2004, I qualified as a master herbalist.
