In this webinar series, we explore the use of medicinal herbs, diet, and lifestyle modifications to improve overall vitality, boost immunity, and fight infections in patients with Cystic Fibrosis.
As a traditional healing system, herbalism is an inherently personalized modality and focuses on treating the whole person, not just the disease. In this series, you will learn how to make more informed decisions on medicinal herbs for patients with cystic fibrosis and how traditional herbalism can complement conventional medicinal interventions. Much of the information in this series can also apply to other respiratory diseases, such as chronic bronchitis, COPD, chronic sinusitis, and other severe respiratory infections.

I would highly recommend this course for anyone with an interest in a holistic approach to medicine. The course is well structured with a focus on practical applications. As a medical research scientist by trade, I chose this course in particular owing to two factors : 1: the material is often backed by research verified information and 2: the lecturers are practitioners with real life experience.
The course itself is provided in a flexible online learning approach which works perfectly for me. I have a young family and a full time job and I find that the lecturers have been very approachable and flexible all the way through the course.
I really enjoy this course and I really feel like I will be well prepared to take up a career in this field.
