“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.”

"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 proccess 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."

Dr. Ciro B Rhodes, Brazil
CEO at Black Dunes Design

“The course on Irish Medicine with Rosari Kingston was wonderful. I gained a solid understanding of the role that the Irish indigenous worldview plays in Irish herbalism and traditional healing. It is inspiring to know that the wisdom of the ages is still being studied, appreciated, and passed on, and that it is still useful in a clinical setting. I appreciated getting to know some of the techniques and concepts of Irish traditional medicine so that I might use them in my own work as a clinical herbalist."
