Healing Mind, Body & Emotions Naturally 

More than one third of Americans use herbs for health purposes, spending over $6.4 billion annually.

Unfortunately, patients (and physicians) often lack accurate information about the safety and efficacy of using herbs for healing.


Our Masters students gain a powerful, practical and energetic understanding of global herbs and their formulation to individual needs. 


Additionally, our Masters program includes an overview of, nutrition, anatomy and physiology. After completing numerous diagnostic case studies, our Masters students are invited to apply what they learn in our student clinic, practicing interaction with clients and identifying disease, formulating herbal solutions for individuals in an actual client setting, with the oversight of our Master Herbalist instructor.

Come join us at California Institute of the Healing Arts & Sciences and become a well-trained, confident and competent Master Herbal Practitioner.
