All animal life depends upon the existence of plants. When Man first started to look for means of curing his ailments, it was to the plant kingdom that he turned. Today, over three-quarters of medicine taken across the Globe is derived from herbs. Today international scientific research has confirmed irrefutably the healing powers of the herbs used by Herbalists, and even conventional doctors rely heavily on plant-based medicines. This course trains you thoroughly in the use of ‘Nature’s Pharmacy’.  This course was written for BSY by a medical doctor and herbalist.
