Accreditation is a question every inquirer wants to understand. Our Diploma graduates qualify for membership to numerous accrediting, approval and regulatory bodies with the understanding that experiencing the healing power of nature is a human right, not one bestowed by individual institutions.
Topics covered in our Diploma courses are ones that can be freely and taught practiced within ‘common law’. Some herbs are regulated in the UK and EU, and laws sometimes change. All students, from any country, can become a member of the American Herbalist Guild or other world herbal organizations. See below for further details.
Accrediting bodies and associations listed below offer the benefits of sharing community, support each others work, protect the role of graduates as a group, reduce insurance rates, offer conferences for continuing education, share pertinent changes to the profession and provide access to current clinical studies and research.
In addition to the personal benefits of membership, strength of numbers is vital for the continuing protection of Natural Medicine.
