With summer just around the corner, Eclectic is busy preparing to launch its first-ever internship program! It will be a unique program that combines hands-on experience on the medicinal herb farm with classroom learning on a wide range of topics. With it, we hope to provide a strong platform for beginning herbalists to dive into the world of holistic health.
In 2012, a group of students from the National University of Natural Medicine wanted to explore modalities and approaches from traditional Nature Cure. Nature cure was a movement from 19th century Europe that included hydrotherapy, dietary changes, and herbal medicine to restore the healing processes of the body. Nature cure was brought to America and eventually was refined and transformed into the basis for naturopathic medicine.
