About Traditional Roots

Based at National College of Natural Medicine, the nation’s oldest accredited naturopathic college, Traditional Roots Institute launched in spring 2013 with a simple goal: to feed and grow natural medicine’s herbal roots.

Traditional Roots is about bringing the people’s medicine back to the people, by direct community education and offering opportunities for health-care providers of all types to deepen their understanding of herbal medicine and advance its clinical practice.

To that end, Traditional Roots Institute is offering community herb walks in regional green spaces, classes in NCNM’s Min Zidell Healing Garden, a speaker series, and an annual Traditional Roots Conference scheduled for May 2014.

Our evolving website features leading voices in herbal medicine and vetted references, giving you a trusted resource for accurate and in-depth information. We’re working with artists, too, so the site will become a delight to the eyes as well as the mind.

Traditional Roots is brand new, and all our work is still in progress. Please check back often to learn about our latest events. And if you’d like to help us with our work, please call or write — we’d love to hear from you!

We’re social! Please join our conversations on Facebook and twitter. See you there!

Our work is made possible through a generous donation from Herb Pharm.
