Alert listener Catherine S. noted the following which we are adding to our notes 10/23/17 as a postscript:
“Hi! I really liked this episode! I just want to correct that there is a herbalist guild in Quebec, Canada that’s doing the same job as the AHG. It is called the Guilde des Herboristes. They provide strict regulation to people who want to call themselves herbalists. You have to get your herbal education examined and provide an “x” number of clinical hours to become a “Herboriste thérapeute accrédité”. Thank you for what you’re doing.”
Thank you, Catherine for your help! It is good to know where Canadian herbalists can get support.
