A Correspondence Course
by Christopher Hobbs, L. Ac., A.H.G.
Offering you the most advanced blend of traditional
Western and Chinese energetic principles with scientific phytotherapy
and native herbs of the U.S.
Thank you for offering this fabulous course. I can't believe how much I
learned from it and how much information it contains. The layout of the
course along with the lectures made it really easy for me to learn the herbs
and remember their uses. This course has proved to be extremely useful as I
refer to it almost daily. Since I have finished the course I still go over
the lessons regularly and am still learning new things!
I want to tell you how much I'm enjoying the fact that your lessons are so amazingly well put together! I love the organization, how "academic" in nature they are and the easy learning flow. Thanks! Michelle Prindle
When Christopher Hobbs says in his video about this course that “We feel like this is one of the best courses for studying herbal medicine, the traditions, the history of herbal medicine, that is available out there”, I could not agree with him more! I was a bit hesitant at first to take a course that included TCM concepts and Chinese Herbal Medicine because the few books I had read on the subject just served to confuse me further.
However, after viewing Chris’s video, I became convinced that this was the course that I needed to take and I was not disappointed. The course does a superb job of explaining the basic concepts of Traditional Chinese Medicine to the Western Herbalist mind. Western medical and scientific information are also included, and all three concepts are blended flawlessly for maximum understanding. Kudos to Chris Hobbs and Beth Baugh for designing and making available such a high quality distance-learning course for study!

I can't speak highly enough of
your course. I am having a great time studying it and
am thankful such quality courses are available for the
Thanks again, John Kaleel
I absolutely love this course!
I have explored many herbal distance learning programs
and this course is by far superior. The material is
presented so that is easliy understandable with great
references making the information easy to retain. The
course goes beyond theory, and presents practical information
that you can begin using immediately. I am finallly
making my own herbal remedies that are benefitting myself,
my family, and friends. I would highly recommend Mr.
Hobbs program to anyone interested in studiying the
wonder of herbs! L.M. Vellucci, Martial
Arts Instructor, Redmond, OR
I went into this course a nurse
and a Herbalist. I knew I would learn a lot but not
to the extent and caliber this course has proven to
be. Every lesson is an eye- opening experience, an adventure
of sorts. It is scientifically, medically correct and
incorporates Traditional Chinese Medicine, Ayurvedic,
Native American, and other alternative therapies as
well. I would recommend this course to anyone who wishes
to take their knowledge up to the next level. Anyone
who is interested in the natural approach to health
or who wishes to supplement their own would benefit
from this course.

One way that the course is helping me at the herb
store where I work is that now I understand more of
how things work in TCM. Also I understand more about
what words like "wildcrafting" actually mean.
I am also learning how varying herb products can be,
and how who they are made by makes a real difference.
I'm becoming a lot more confident in my knowledge on
herbs and herbal medicine and am really looking forward
to the rest of the course.

Like a good herbal formula, Christopher Hobbs
home study course is a fine blend of Western and Chinese
herbal practices. The course also brings traditional
herbalism closer to the mainstream of current medicine
and science by examining the chemical constituents of
herbs and their therapeutic activities.

In the past I never thought I'd do well with this type
of program, as I prefer a classroom setting. However,
once I saw the PowerPoint presentation and text format,
I realized how in-depth and good this program would
be for me. I have enjoyed each chapter and even though
some is overview, I still learn more than I knew before.
I have encouraged others to take this program because
of the incredible instructional background and development
and how easy this is to fit into my current busy lifestyle.
I am excited to progress onward through this study and
know this work will lead me to more of what I like in
the herb profession. Thank you for creating this program!

An outstanding program. Very well
organized, easy to understand and easy to follow.
Finishing this program increased my knowledge and raised
my comfort level to a level high enough to find my niche
in the Herbal Industry. I highly recommend it to all
who are persuing herbal studies.
Thank you Christopher and Beth. Inge Rothig, Gig Harbor, WA
This course is tops! It is well written and comes
with beautifully illustrated CD presentations. It truly
captures both the magnitude of modern worldwide herbal
medicine and the nitty gritty of how to practice. Christopher
and Beth deeply understand what is at stake and cut
to the chase to empower us with the ability to take
care of ourselves, our loved ones and clients. Karen
