"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."
The workshops, in business and compliance, organised by the ICTIM allow you to become aware of the different policies and procedures that need to be put in place to ensure positive patient outcomes and compliance with professional standards of care. These workshops take place online and in situ.
The ICTIM also offers workshops in clinical techniques from other medical systems and the theory and practice of these therapies are taught within the framework of biomedicine so that they may be seamlessly incorporated as an adjunct therapy in patient care.
These workshops give you hands-on learning on the regulatory requirements affecting the growing and harvesting of herbs and other natural products. They also advise you of the significance of traditional knowledge in plant husbandry and why the ‘terroir’ of a herb is so important. These workshops take place both online and in situ.
