Founded in 1920, we are Australia’s oldest professional association of complementary therapists. Representing Western herbalists and naturopaths, we are the only national professional association specifically concerned with the practice and education of Western herbal medicine (WHM) in Australia. Our mission is to serve and support our membership and promote and protect the profession and practice of Western herbal medicine.
We have a range of membership options for professionals, interested parties and students and our members have access to great resources such as Natural Standard databases, our online discussion forum, professional guidance and more!
We also work to connect the public with our highly trained practitioners through our Find A Practitioner service.
