The course trains the student to become a competent Homeobotanical Therapist.
The final assessment is made through a Discovery Diary in which the student records his or her observations during the entire course.
On completion, the Diary is forwarded to the Assessor and if satisfactory, returned with a written examination (cost $150-00). If inadequate, the Diary will be returned with a written request for further case studies to demonstrate further improvement and understanding before the written exam is forwarded.

Herbal Energy Practitioners

On satisfactory completion of the New Zealand Bush and Herbal Energy Course a certificate is awarded and you are eligible to become a member of the Homeobotanical Institute.

Homeobotanical Therapy (Herbal Energy) has always been a core therapy, which means that it is used by all manner of practitioners as the basis of their clinical management.
The remedies initiate the entire healing process and may be used to boost the clinical results of body therapists, psychologists and counsellors, traditional and orthodox practitioners.

Homeobotanical remedies are glycerated herbal tinctures that have been homeopathically potentised.
By blending the various Homeobotanically prepared remedies, individualised treatment is possible for every patient.
Each original Homeobotanical remedy is known by a letter of the alphabet, (A for asthma, B for Blood purifying etc.). The secondary remedies have special names like Cerebra (brain, memory) and Trauma (accidents) to suggest their actions.

The New Zealand bush remedies may be used to support and extend the original Homeobotanical remedies or they may be used on their own.

Dynamic Assimilation

Every Homeobotanical (Hb) remedy contains botanical nutrients that have a specific affinity for one ORGAN or SYSTEM.
During the preparation of the Hb remedy, these nutrients are potentised to facilitate absorption. Given with an appropriate nutritional programme, the action of Homeobotanicals is to modulate assimilation of nutrients at a cellular level.

Activated Depuration

First remove the CAUSE.
Homeobotanical remedies are active DRAINAGE preparations that encourage depuration of toxins.
By opening up the natural drainage channels of the body, Homeobotanical remedies clear the system of endogenous and exogenous toxins. This purification process releases the natural healing energy of the body.

Progressive Restoration

Maintenance programmes using Homeobotanicals together with appropriate nutritional and lifestyle changes, encourages restoration of damaged tissues.

The combined action of Purification, Assimilation and Stimulation of healing is one of TROPHORESTORATION - the progressive reversal of chronic, degenerative metabolism.

The action is always gentle and safe, suitable for people of all ages.

A whole new field of treatments has developed using Homeobotanicals with animals.
Ironically all the original tests were carried out on humans.
The Homeobotanical Institute was incorporated in 1989 to research and develop the uniquely New Zealand discovery of Herbal Energy - the extraordinary surge of healing power that is released from herbs when prepared in a special manner.
