Herbal Medicine Disclosures

An herbal studies/herbal medicine certificate, diploma or degree provides graduates with useful skills that may enhance a current career path or offer opportunities to work in the holistic health community, however, graduation from an herbalism program does not convey any sort of license to practice.

Currently, there are no licensing requirements for herbalists in the United States.

There are membership and registration options in the industry including:

Herbalists may not claim to treat, diagnose, or cure any illness, because doing so may be considered practicing medicine without a license and a violation of State Medical Practice Acts. Prior to enrollment, students are solely responsible for confirming that the certificate, diploma or degree program in which they enroll will meet their personal and career objectives.

If you are interested in pursuing a career in the health and wellness industry, you should consult with the appropriate state board to assure that your credentials will allow you to achieve your professional goals.
