Not only did I enjoy the course and the challenges it posed, but the course gave me insight and knowledge into herbology that I can apply in my Chiropractic practice.  It was very easy getting signed up and getting all the information needed.  I appreciate the opportunity to grow with such a great organization.

Learn treatment options that are available using a variety of herbs and natural products from a modern scientific perspective,  but supported by traditional use.


Explore the use of natural products and traditional approaches that can improve vitality and health outcomes for people living with, for example cystic fibrosis or other specific pathologies

A More Collaborative Experience

Become a part of a like-minded community that focuses on the same values.

"My first contact with herbal medicine was through the ICTIM. They taught me important things about herbal science, but they also taught me to see the herbs as a living being, that interacts with people and all the environment. Understanding that herbs are part of the universe and thus we are somehow connected with them, and with everything else, has changed my way of thinking the therapeutic process entirely. Although I continued my studies more specifically on Chinese herbal medicine, the things I learned from Mrs. Rosari and the other teachers from ICTIM are always a part of my medical thinking process, because it changed the way I understand medicine and the treatment process, and for that I am really grateful."
