This is an online course. You can take this anywhere you have an internet connection. You do not have to be present in our area to take the course!

This 3-week online course will help you refine and develop your formulating techniques for botanical medicine making.  During this course, Sam Coffman will step through a history of formulation and arrive at his own pathophysiology-based formulation theory.

As a class, we will walk through actual case studies along with the follow-up and validate a formulation theory that can be used as a structural foundation for any and all clinical approaches to botanical medicine from a Western point of view.

Student will learn:

  • Multiple approaches to creating botanical formulas in the clinic, the field or for the home herbalist.
  • Dosage and toxicity will be a part of the learning structure as well.
  • In addition to formulation theory, Sam will also share his formulas and derivatives for a starting point for many acute and chronic conditions that are common in American clinics
  • Online classes will include formulation homework and quizzes to help assess student progress
  • A choice of case studies will be presented for students to formulate on as a practical exercise and final grade
