Become a Certified Herbalist Online

The Wholistic Training Institute (WTI), Detroit’s only state-licensed school for “wholistic” (naturopathic) education since 1999, is offering an online eight-week course to become a certified herbalist. Level 1 classes in Herbology start from 6 to 8 p.m., January 18, on Zoom. Herbology 2 starts on January 19. There will be a free call on How to be the Healer in Your Home from 10 to 11 a.m., January 8 and again on January 15.

            Dr. Jesse Brown, naturopathic doctor and owner of WTI says, "The purpose of these courses is for the students to become familiar with the common and botanical names of herbs, where in the U.S. they are found, what parts of the plant are used and how they have historically been used for medicine throughout the ages. They will also learn how to identify some of their characteristics."


Cost is $500. For registration and more information, call 313-538-5433 or visit
