Kitchen Medicine: Natural Health
Kitchen medicine is a great insight into the healing power of plants, it focuses on safe and readily accessible herbs and plants to bring together a practical look at the compounds in plants and how these give rise to plant health benefits. You will review history, regulation, body systems, a wee bit of chemistry around the major constituents in plants so you can recognise their potential effect, as well as production methods and a herbal monograph of the major herbal remedies. You'll culminate your unit with having created a lovely blended tea as your assessment.
Note, this course is seated in herbalism and won't cover the use of plant compounds as ingredients in foods such as smoothies. This unit does not enable students to practice in the area of herbal medicine as this is three year Bachelor of Health Science degree, it will enable you to better use plants in daily life to use their health-giving benefits to the fullest.
