Filed in What is a Medical Herbalist on December 18, 2013


A Medical Herbalist uses modern natural medicine at its best. It combines the art of holistic treatment and the science of plant healing properties to treat people to achieve optimum health. It is based on internationally accepted scientific evidence and thousands of years of use by the majority of the world’s population. Registered Medical Herbalists are specialists in the use of medicinal plants and their therapeutic activity and do not practice other modalities unless qualified to do so with specific additional training. All Registered Herbalists meet the Ontario Herbalists Association education requirements and must adhere to strict codes of ethics and practice. The OHA is the only body providing self regulated certification for herbalists in the Province of Ontario. www.herbalists.on.ca
