The Restorative Medicine Herbal Certification program fills an existing gap in botanical medicine education for practitioners whose medical education did not include herbs, including medical doctors, nurse practitioners and chiropractors.

It’s a modern herb course designed for the busy practitioner who wants to improve clinical outcomes. Eight clinically-oriented modules will apply herbal medicine to the following systems: foundations of herbal medicine; herbs for endocrinology; cardiology and metabolic syndrome; mitochondrial function; neurology and neurotransmitters; immunology; oncology; and gastroenterology. The program builds on your existing clinical experience; expands your proficiency in natural treatments; and offers flexibility to fit into your busy schedule.

"The Herbal Certification from AARM is the perfect complement to my IFM certification. Many of the supplements I use have herbs and it helps to learn more about them in depth, to add versatility to my practice and better treatment options for my patients. Thank you to all the teachers who take time to impart their years of practical knowledge to us."

~ L.I., MD from the Herb Program 

The Restorative Medicine Herbal Certification program was created by AARM, applying our 16 years of experience as a CME provider for integrative medicine education. Courses are presented by experts in their field, who have both extensive herb knowledge and clinical experience. The faculty is diverse — including MDs, NDs, PhDs, and DCs — in order to bring a balanced perspective from many points of view. These experts will share real case studies and deliver botanical medicine treatment concepts that are proven to get results in the real world.

The program is delivered via a combination of in-person events, online webinars and on demand recordings, all designed to accommodate your busy schedule.

What You Will Learn:

  • Drug, herb and nutrients interactions
  • Herb safety and contraindications, based on clinical experiences, not theoretical research
  • How to evaluate herb supplement quality
  • Gain confidence in using therapeutic dosing for clinical results

Why We're Different

Here's how the Restorative Medicine Herbal Certification is different than other programs:

  • The program is focused on herbal applications without spending a lot of time teaching clinical basics.
  • Experts will teach the mechanisms of action for the most commonly used herbs, and train doctors on how to apply their understanding of plant pharmacology to other clinical conditions. Unlike other herbal medicine courses, our approach is not about rote memorization of lists of herbs.
  • We offer patient-centered learning based on what really works.
