You have already taken the fist step in understanding herbal medicine by completing this four part course.

By now,

you understand what is herbal medicine,
its history and
the its basic principles.

Now lets see what steps you can next to advance your knowledge of herbal medicine.

Start by buying a good book on herbal medicine that will introduce you to the basics step by step.

I recommend Medicinal Herbs a Beginner’s Guide by Rosemary Gladstar. Her book will help you learn about 33 of the most popular herbs. It will also guide you in growing many of those herbs and how to use them in teas, tinctures, oils and other healing formulas.

The internet is another great source of information on herbal medicine.

Herbal medicine on Youtube
Youtube has many videos on herbal medicine and I recommend the following Youtube channels;

Harmonic Arts Botanical Dispensary

The School of Evolutionary Herbalism

Mountain rose herbs

Herb TV

The Mental Health Herbalist

There are loads of great websites and here are a few links to some of the ones I recommend you start with;

Visiting a herbalist
Visiting an herbalist is another great way of discovering what herbal medicine has to offer.

In Ireland there are many herbalists practicing and most of them will have a website with details of their location, treatments and prices.

Health shops
Health shops are another way to experience and learn about herbal medicines. The majority of staff working in health shops are not qualified herbalists but they do have a wealth of knowledge and can guide you to the best product to meet your needs.

Some health supplements are synthetic and so are not bioavailable, meaning that we are not able to abort them. Always choose products that are bioavailable and organic. Try to get your vitamins and minerals from fresh food sources.

Farmers markets
Farmers markets are another great place where you will probably find someone selling herb plants like lemon balm, thyme, rosemary and sage. These markets are also great places to buy organic fruit and vegetables and to meet other like minded people.

Here are some links to some good farmers markets;

event & street food specialists

You should also look out for foraging courses in your area. To forage means to look for herbs in the wild. Foraging is a great way to experience and learn about herbal medicine. Not all plants are medicinal and some are even poisonous so its really important that you get professional guidance in learning how to forage for medical plants. Foraging courses often include workshops on how to dry, store and make tinctures and other useful herbal formulas.

Here are some reliable foraging websites in Ireland;



Guided Foraging Walks

Study to become an herbalist
You may want to go further and study to become an herbalist. In Ireland I would recommend the Irish School of Herbal Medicine, in Portlaoise. This is where I studied and the course is now on line. You will however have to complete 600 hours of clinical practice at their school clinic, but this is the most fun part of the course.

Remember when using herbal medicines, you need to give them time to work. Unlike conventional medicine herbs don’t promise instant solutions to health issues. They take time to work.

About me
The Mental Health Herbalist is a holistic channel on YouTube, dedicated to teaching you about herbs and herbal medicine. Like Hippocrates, I believe food is medicine and can heal and prevent all sorts of illnesses.

Remember always consult with a doctor if you have an illness and consult with an herbalist if you want to go on a course of herbs. These videos are for information purposes only. If you taking medications consult with a medical doctor. If you want to take a course of herbs I recommend you talk to a herbalist. If you want more information contact me by email.

    I have to play devil's advocate here…..putting oneself distantly with the medical establishment is not a good path to take for quality health. Asking your doctor, "can I take this because I'm suffering with that," only opens the door for pharmacological suggestions and prescriptions, and you don't want to mix prescriptions with your herbal suggestions either. Two, everything is called medical history, which means as you age, all of the ailments you acquired has a value in the over-all medical aspects of your aging health concerns. Should herbals work for the performance of correcting your ailment (s), where's the historical data kept for future recommendations ? For cross evaluations ? Can you see you're walking on thin ice ? Heaven forbid, you should come down with a tragic disease where nobody in the medical establishment knows you or has records of you ? It'll wind up as 100% experimentation to correct whatever it is you're suffering with ! Don't do that to your life, find a young doctor you can grow with, he or she see's an alarming situation or a recall of prescription medications, they'll call you up on the phone and warn you, they'll keep track of you.

    Practice foraging, and all the creativity that goes along with it, you'll be protecting yourself in an emergency, just don't kick the Medical Establishment down the road, there are those who really care.

    Thank you, Tom, for the great information and the links. When making an herbal bedtime tea, passion flower, hops, lemon balm, chamomile and licorice, what is your opinion on long steeping 1/2 hr – several hours? How many minutes before bedtime do you recommend drinking it? If you wake up during the night is it useful to have another cup to get you back to sleep?
