Diploma in Herbal & Naturopathic Medicine (Tibb)

An Overview

Herbal Medicine is the oldest form of medicine in the world, used by people of all different cultures.  There is currently a great reawakening towards discovering again the roots of wisdom-based traditions of herbal medicine. The CoMHA Diploma in Herbal & Naturopathic Medicine (Tibb) is based on a synthesis of ancient Hippocratic and Near-Eastern traditions, also known as Tibb.  (What is Tibb Medicine?).  The course also incorporates beneficial modern knowledge and techniques where appropriate towards revival of the Tibb tradition.

Who Is This Programme For?

The Diploma programme is for those who wish to learn and practice an authentic and comprehensive tradition that is relevant to dealing with today's health challenges.  Classes are kept small so that each participant gets personalised attention during the facilitation.  Learners are expected to work on improvement of their own health, wellbeing and self-development as future practitioners of this noble tradition (a motto which runs throughout the course is 'physician, heal thyself').
