Welcome to The Association of Master Herbalists

The Association of Master Herbalists was founded in 1995. The Association has from the beginning, had a strong affinity to the North American eclectic school, notably Dr John R Christopher who was the founder of the School of Natural Healing in 1953. The school in the USA continues to this day to run it’s traditional Master Herbalist training based on the work of Dr Christopher.

Master Herbalists are registered members of the AMH (Association of Master Herbalists) who have qualified after a suitably recognised professional training which is to a degree or equivalent level with over 2,500 hours of classroom based study with an additional 500 hours of clinical patient training. All members are fully insured and work to a strict code of conduct and ethics. The AMH-registered practitioner attends yearly CPD (Continuing Professional Development) courses to update and enhance their practice skills.

The members of the Association of Master Herbalists, (AMH), practice a form of Natural Healing which includes Herbal Medicine and a blend of Naturopathic techniques such as detoxification, nutrition, hydrotherapy, fasting and other ways to assist the patient back to health.
