The Green Healers Apprentice
e-Learning Program

The Green Healers Apprentice is aimed at you if you believe in being responsible for your own well being, and you want to improve your health and vitality by becoming your own herbalist. Its comparatively affordable modular format allows you to focus on those body systems that matter most to you.

The Green Healers Apprentice is also ideal for therapists and health practitioners using other modalities and forms of alternative medicine who want to use herbal medicine to be of better service to their clients.

The material work towards health as defined by the World Health Organization. It being: "More than the absence of illness. It is the active state of physical, emotional, mental and social well-being."

To this end the underlying belief regarding health and healing in the Green Healers Apprentice program is a non-denominational Christian belief that says God is the Ultimate Healer. What this entails is perhaps best summarized by John Edmiston in an article entitled Healing, Health and Medicine.
