Neurological & Emotional Health
Learn herbs and holistic strategies to support neurological and emotional health.
Our culture tends to separate emotional health from physiological health, and even from neurological health. That's not our perspective!
We see the deep interconnectedness of every aspect of our health - both in our individual bodies but also in our communities and our society.
Learning how to deeply support your neurological and emotional health will help you live more comfortably in your own skin, and help you keep an even keel in times of stress.
In this course, you'll learn how to:
🌿 Build strong nervous system function even after chronic illnesses like MS or fibromyalgia
🌿 Support nervous health at the cellular level - including the relationship between nerves and hormones - and how to establish balance so that you feel steady
🌿 Assess emotional health issues so that you can choose the right herbs for the situation at hand
🌿 Manage pain holistically
🌿 Provide herbal support for issues like depression, anxiety, ADHD, and Autistic Spectrum Disorders
The course includes over 40 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 Ryn and Katja.

Two heads are better than one!
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 for nearly 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.
Teaching isn't just about conveying information - there's also an aspect of being someone's "cup of tea".
So we want you to take the first 14 days to really decide if you love it or not. If for any reason you feel like this program isn’t right for you - if we're just not your cup of tea - we’ll give you a full refund. You don't even need a reason - just please let us know within 14 days of purchase.
It's time to get healthy and stay that way!
