  • The Southwest School of Botanical Medicine (SWSBM) continues to offer distance learning programs that represent Michael Moore’s herbal wisdom and the unique knowledge he accumulated during three decades of teaching and a lifetime of studying medicinal plants.
  • Henriette’s herbal is one of the oldest and largest herbal medicine sites on the net. It’s been online since 1995, and is run by Henriette Kress, a herbalist in Helsinki, Finland.
  • The Institute for Traditional Medicine  (ITM) was established in 1979 and incorporated in 1983. They provide excellent information on Chinese and other traditional herbal medicines. Traditional medicine refers to ideas, experiences, and substances that have been handed down generation to generation from ancient times, where the origins are obscure but where the continuity of basic understanding has been assured by a formal structure. Among the primary traditional medical systems still active today are the Chinese, Tibetan, and Indian (Ayurvedic). ITM enriches the lives of people seeking traditional medicine knowledge and services by clarifying the nature of traditional medicine and demonstrating how it can be utilized in the modern setting.
