Kids don't come with instruction manuals...

But herbs can make it easier!

Herbs are the perfect solution for so many aspects of keeping our kids healthy! But lots of people have questions about what is safe for kids, and what will work - and even about how to better incorporate herbal strategies into regular every day parenting. (Or in other words, "i'm not sure my kid will actually go along with it!")

Don't worry! Kids and herbs have a long history: basically, as long as there have been kids, kids have had herbs - there are plenty of safe solutions!

And more importantly, you aren't locked in to just one solution for health issues and parenting struggles - so many herbs can work in a complementary way right along with conventional therapies. 

You have a lot of freedom to find what's right for your kids and your family!

In this course, you'll learn how to:

🌿Choose the right herbs for your kids at every stage of growth

🌿Modify strategies that work for adults so that they're appropriate for kids

🌿Create herbal remedies that your kids will enjoy - or at least feel motivated to take

🌿Create complete protocols for your kids, specific to their own needs

This course includes over 17 hours of video instruction, as well as PDF handouts, quizzes and homework assignments, and more - plus weekly Q&A discussions where you can talk directly with Katja and Ryn.

Growing children go through all kinds of discomforts - but herbs can make them easier!

A perfect complement

It's true: things have to be modified for kids. They just don't need as much as adults do!

But on the other hand: kids are small humans, and things that work for humans work for small humans. 

Every body is different and every kid is different - but in general, strategies that we work with for adults can be modified to be size-appropriate for kids.

Because of this, we don't recreate the entire Community Herbalist program in this course - everything in the Community Herbalist program applies to kids already!

This course will help you learn to modify all of those approaches to be appropriate for smaller bodies. 

Additionally, this course contains things that usually aren't relevant to adults, like Chicken pox and cradle cap and growing pains, as well as kid-specific strategies for things like dealing with food allergies, changing sleep schedules, and getting more movement.

If you are not enrolled in the whole Community Herbalist program, don't worry! You can take this course, and if you want more information, you can enroll in Community Herbalist later. If you do, send us email and let us make you a coupon code to deduct the tuition for this course, so that you don't pay for it twice! 

But wait, there's more! 🙂

In addition to the videos, we provide features to accommodate all the different ways people like to learn, so you can internalize the information easily!

  • Weekly live Q&A sessions with Katja and Ryn - to ask your questions directly, live and in person! (They're even archived, in case you miss one!) This course has 6 months live Q&A support.

  • Ask questions anytime - we're always just a click away: you can ask any questions in the integrated discussion forum, and we're committed to personally answering your questions, usually within 24 hours

  • Printable PDF materials - if you like to follow the videos along on paper, or keep them handy for a quick reference

  • Downloadable MP3 files - so you can review the content while you commute, workout, garden, ... anytime!

17+ hours of in-depth videos, downloadable quick guides, live Q&A sessions, and more - all for $200!

The best herb school online!

"I researched different online herbalism courses for about two months and am so glad I found you two. There is so much more than just the material to this course. Because you teach everything in videos, and then with the live Q&A sessions every week, I feel like this is more of an in-person experience than an online course and I love that."

Your Teachers

Two heads are better than one!

Katja & Ryn
Katja & Ryn

Katja & Ryn almost always teach together. They each have particular talents and areas of interest, and their perspectives on certain issues are quite different! Together, they convey a fuller picture of the realities of herbal theory & practice than either one could do alone.

Katja is an herbalist and teacher working to help people rebuild their relationships with their bodies and their own ability to heal. She’s been in practice over 20 years, but it all began with a desire to make her own “fancy tea” at home instead of paying high prices for imported blends at specialty stores. She’s kept that do-it-yourself ethic close to her heart.

Ryn has been a practicing herbalist since 2010. He came to herbalism by way of martial arts, where his first experiences with herbs were focused on getting back into the game and becoming more flexible, adaptable, and resilient. Passing that experience on to others is what keeps him motivated every day.

Together, Katja and Ryn teach everyone from children to elders, as well as pharmacy students from Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Northeastern University School of Pharmacy, where they both serve as associate faculty. Ryn and Katja are the authors of Herbal Medicine for Beginners, and the creators of the weekly Holistic Herbalism Podcast.
