In 2016 I graduated from Pacific Rim College with a Diploma of Phytotherapy. This program is the most comprehensive of its type in North America, and our training is extensive. The program allowed me to build relationships with the plants, gaining an intimate knowledge of this ancient medicine whilst concurrently studying bio-medical sciences (western pharmacology, anatomy and physiology, pathophysiology etc…) in order to get a full understanding of the human body’s disease and healing processes.
My training also includes:
- Integrated physical examinations, including: blood pressure, rapid urine tests, neurological, orthopedic and physical exams (including respiratory, cardiovascular and abdominal)
- Reading and interpreting blood work and other laboratory test results
- Over 500 hours of clinical experience
