Apart from their use to provide non-specific support for recuperation and repair, specific phytotherapeutic strategies include the following:
- Early and transient joint inflammation
- Repetitive strain injury
- Long-standing joint disease with joint damage
- Low back pain
Because of its use of secondary plant products, particular caution is necessary in apply phytotherapy in cases of very aggressive joint inflammation.

Desire to learn how to attend to lower back pain as I age and how to help friends with Arthritis.
Not sure what I am to reply to. I am in my 70’s. Have had 1 3-season Herbal Class in 2019. Grow medicinal herbs in my
garden for personal use. Make tinctures, salves, infused oils, & use herbs in my cooking. I have had anatomy and physiology and kinesiology in the 1970’s. I have been an appliance repair technician and instructor most of my working
career. I am retired now and just getting into ‘online’ learning.
Hi Wanda, thanks for your comments. While there’s an option to add a comment to any lesson, it isn’t necessary and most folks just go through the lessons and quizzes without adding comments. That being said, if you have a question about a lesson, the comment area is available for your use and I’ll be notified. By the way, I’m also in my 70’s and can assure you that you’ll get the hang of it. I’m here to help if you get stuck! Take your time and enjoy something new!!!
How do I finish this course? Read all the material, took all the quizzes. 2 Lessons left which I don’t seem to have
access. Wondering what I need to do to complete the course. Please respond. Thank you. Wanda
Hi Wanda, when you say you don’t have access to the last two lessons, please clarify what happens when you try to take them as their access is the same as other lessons. You are referring to the lesson on “Recommended Herbs” and the last one is on studies?
