Herbal Curriculums

Herbs have been used for food and for medicinal purposes since the beginning of recorded history. The Bible says that God gave mankind the use of plants and herbs for curative care, both physical (2 Kings 20:7; Psalm 51:7, Genesis 1:29) and emotional (Psalm 45:8; Genesis 43:11).

Herbal medicine sometimes referred to as botanical medicine or herbalism, involves the use of plants, or parts of plants, to support or help remedy injuries or illnesses. The field involves the use of herbs or botanicals to improve overall health and wellness. Herbalists, herbal medicine practitioners, traditional medicine practitioners, Ayurvedic doctors, Homeopaths, Naturopathic Professionals, and other wellness experts all use herbal remedies in their practices or business.

New Eden School is proud to offer some of the best herbal study programs in the world.
