17 April - Herbalist Day
An herbalist is someone who uses plants for healing. These practitioners are not medical doctors, though some practitioners are also referred to as medical herbalists.
Herbal Medicine was used in Australia by the Indigenous population, as well as in Ancient Egypt, China, India, the Arab world, Europe, Britain, Greece and Rome. Many of the plants used by these early healers are still used today such as poppy, garlic and eucalyptus. There are many popular ways to consume medicinal herbs. Herbs are constantly being researched to help us learn more about their potential therapeutic activity.
There isn't one common training or certification program for herbalists, which makes their path different from a doctor who attends medical school. Other organizations, like the American Herbalist Guild, offer memberships and certifications. The American Herbalist Guild requires 400 hours of training and clinical experience before practitioners can apply for the title of Registered Herbalist.
