134 | Autoimmune Nephritis and Hypothyroid Case Study with Katja Swift and Ryn Midura

HerbRally

This week on the HerbRally podcast, Katja and Ryn talk about one of their Clinical Herbalist students and a case with autoimmune nephritis and hypothyroid. This case is particularly interesting because the herbal interventions were alongside conventional medical treatments, and there was plenty of lab testing to confirm the results they were getting. It's so exciting when you hear a doctor say "These test results are amazing. Tell me again what your herbal protocol was?". This is just one example of how we work as professional herbalists. There are a lot of ways to make herbalism a career, and we can help you make it happen! The Clinical Herbalist online video course will give you the skills you need to take your practice of herbalism to the professional level. And when you've finished with that, they’ve even got mentorships that will help you with all the business aspects of getting started, as well as clinical mentorship to go through every single case with you as you're starting out on your own - it's so much easier when you've got support to rely on! They will even help you through the AHG professional membership process - they’re with you every step of the way. All of their programs are taught with self-paced videos, and you can log in twice weekly to our live Q&A sessions to ask your questions live and in person if you like! There are integrated discussion threads right in every video so you can ask your questions right when you think of them, too! There are quizzes, printable quick guides, lots of scientific research and case studies, and more. Plus, you get lifetime access - you can watch the videos a million times if you want to! Katja and Ryn have been teaching this clinical program here in Boston for the past 10 years, and it launches online on November 4th. You really can build an herbal career for yourself. It's not just a dream: you can make it real in your life, and Katja and Ryn can help! LEARN MORE Thanks for listening!
