For centuries healing plants have demonstrated an ability to unite human beings of all races, creeds, and cultural traditions. Plants are a vital part of the healing practices of the people of the world.  They are a part of modern biomedicine and ancient healing traditions. Wise people of many cultures have prophesied that the 21st century would be a time when people would find greater ways to integrate traditions and emerging science. Herbal Diplomats® have a broad base of botanical understanding from clinical and biomedical inquiry of plant constituents to the holistic, multi-dimensional applications of botanical healing knowledge gained from participating in the plant-human relationship. The Herbal Diplomat® program is for those who want to reform health care and  provide a healing service that integrates partnership with healing plants, health diplomacy and coaching, healing traditions,  indigenous knowledge, biomedical research, and the science of energy flow in the care of self, family, community and country.
