I was trying to figure out a couple of days ago why kratom was suddenly out of stock at most of the online pharmacies that I generally pick it up from. There was a buzz that some of it was called back and I was slightly confused as to what the matter could have been!
You could check out wekratom.com for any additional information on this confusion.
And while I was reading up related articles on the internet, I realized that I probably was inclined to reading more on herbs. I have always believed that there is no disease that cannot be fixed with natural remedies and I have often found myself favoring natural ingredients to pharmacological ones.
Here is what you need to do in case you would like to study about herbs:
The internet has a lot of short courses on herbalism but is aware that they are mostly for disseminating information rather than creating a practice. So, you cannot do a course and become a qualified herbalist!
There is the American Herbalists Guild which runs college courses spanning at least 1600 theoretical hours and an additional 400 hours of clinical practice in order to award you with a degree in herbalism. This is a rewarding course and you can blindly enroll in any one of the recommended places as long as it suits your preferences.
There is so much scope in this field!
I have heard of a lot of conventional medicine practitioners also being inclined towards naturalism and enrolling for courses in herbalism in order to improve their set of skills. With a degree from a professional college, you can become an herbalist or a nurse with an herbalist practitioner. You can even acquire a license to grow medicinal plants and manufacture them.
Of course, teaching herbalism after graduating is also a great option giving you hands-on experience as well as opportunity to be able to conduct research while you also teach.
