Reviewing case histories is a great way to learn and one we spend a lot of time on in our school. Thomas M. Easley has been seeing clients on a regular basis, since he opened his small herb shop in south Alabama in 2001. In his time as a practicing clinical herbalist, he has seen thousands of clients. This experience has helped to shape and mold him as an herbalist, healer, and teacher.
The staff here at the Eclectic School of Herbal Medicine believes it is important to give the students hands on clinical experience. One of the ways we are able to offer this experience is through our student ran, free herbal clinic and apothecary. The clients are given an extensive intake form to fill out and bring back with them for their consultation with one of the students. After their consultation, the client’s case is brought before the Monday round table in order to discuss each case, and help students come up with a plan for their clients.
