Events for the public
Are you interested in learning more about herbal medicine? Would you like to know more about looking after yourself and your family? The events calendar includes talks, guided walks and short home use courses in herbal medicine and healthcare run by NIMH members for the general public.
Some people have taken courses like these and became so interested they went on to train as medical herbalists and join the NIMH. These courses, walks and talks may spark a similar interest in you, but the courses themselves are not sufficient to qualify you to practise as a herbalist. If you wish to train as a medical herbalist click here. If you wish to advertise with the NIMH, please contact the NIMH office on firstname.lastname@example.org
16th to 24th June 2018

Beyond the Bottle: Botanicals as Partners in Practice

Through a case-study model, the use of plants in medicinal preparations such as soups, pestos, beverages, and even healing desserts will be shared. As herbalists, we have the option to move beyond the bottle to a sensory approach to herbal medicine which can fit seamlessly into life and practice.
