    Reviewed by Kim l. on 11/5/2019
    Informative and very interesting. I recommend for anyone interested in alternatives to traditional medicine. I love this plant and believe in the science. the samples we took home were ample. I've been using the lotion on some sore spots where i think i'm developing arthritis. Whether real or psychosomatic, i have relief. i was concerned about sitting in a class for all those hours but it went by quickly -- which means the content was interesting and the class was well paced.

Best Natural Medicine Classes Online

The Greek physician Hippocrates is often called the first practitioner of natural medicine or naturopathy. Many subcategories, traditions, and practices are encompassed by the term "natural medicine," including ayurveda, yoga, traditional Chinese medicine, indigenous practices, herbalism, homeopathy, acupuncture, stretching, and many others. A licensed practitioner of natural medicine is sometimes called a naturopathic doctor or naturopathic physician. 

Those who practice natural medicine generally eschew traditional drugs and hospital treatments in favor of therapies or remedies derived from the natural world, such as herbs, minerals, vegetables, fruits, or flowers. Today, the most commonly used forms of natural medicine are herbal supplements and yoga, which has been shown to reduce cortisol levels and aid in healing after an illness or injury. 

Why You Should Learn Natural Medicine Online

If you have ever wanted to learn more about plants, gardening, ecology, or nature, natural medicine is a great place to begin. Plus learning about natural medicine will give you a few new tools to increase well being and reduce stress as you learn. 

Interest in natural medicine and alternative forms of healing is on the rise in the United States, which means that there are networks of natural medicine practitioners in most metro areas, and even smaller towns. You can join one of the many grassroots communities or larger organizations centered around the practice and teaching of natural medicine and build new relationships as you broaden your skill set. 

Professional opportunities in the field of natural medicine may not be as copious as others, for example in coding or web design, but since it is a niche discipline, the opportunity is there to carve out your own small business or practice in your community. Demand for herbalists, reiki and yoga instructors, dieticians, and even teachers in identifying native species of plants and fungi are on the rise. Follow your passion and see where it leads. 

Virtual Natural Medicine Classes 

With all of the options available now for online natural medicine classes, it's simple and easy to find the one that's right for you, your location, and your schedule. All the benefits and fun or learning natural medicine are waiting for you, and all you need to get started is a computer or smart device and an internet connection. 

It's true that you may not get the same style of instructor feedback in an online class that you might get in an in-person class, but the community and sense of camaraderie is still there, even in a virtual space. Not only that, but you can access the course of your choice from anywhere, even the comfort of home. 

So much of natural medicine concerns proper plant identification and knowing how to apply the right balm, salve, or tincture at the right time. In an online class, you receive live instruction from an expert instructor in the community of like minded peers. You may have to provide some materials yourself, such as textbooks or workbooks, but your instructor will provide a list of all the supplies you might need to make your learning experience fun and fulfilling. Check out the full selection of online natural medicine classes at CourseHorse.

Online vs. In-Person Natural Medicine Classes

Everyone learns differently, and the perfect classroom for one may be a burden for another. That's what makes the sheer variety of courses available today so exciting. Whether you're learning virtually or in-person, you're sure to find a course that works for you.

Due to the differences in delivery and materials required, there's generally a greater number of online classes than in-person classes for any given subject. Still, some people learn better in a physical classroom alongside their peers. Others would prefer to spare the commute and learn from home or a preferred workspace. 

Most in-person classes include all the necessary materials, whereas the virtual ones sometimes require you to source the required materials yourself. This takes time, so it's important to schedule when and where you purchase what you may need for the class. For many online classes, however, all you need to take part is a computer or smart device and a reliable internet connection. 

Can I Learn Natural Medicine for Free Online?

Yes, beginning your natural medicine journey is easy when so many options for learning are available. Online tutorials and videos are a terrific place to start, and you can progress with them at the pace that works best for you. 

In many locations, you can explore the natural environments around you to identify herbs, fungi, or other plants that may be beneficial as natural medicines. Check out a book at your local library, or find a text that appeals to you at your local bookstore. 

If you have a passion for nature and growing things, then it's easy to start learning more. Chart your own course, though many will find that learning with a knowledgeable professional is quite effective and sometimes much more efficient than learning on your own.
