New York Herb School - Institute of Herbal Medicine & Nutrition. The Art of Healing with Herbs & Food.

     The New York Herb School - Institute of Herbal Medicine & Nutrition Offers Two Professional Certification Programs. A 6-Month Certification Program in Oriental Dietetics (The Art of Healing with Food) and a 12 - Month Certification Program Classical Chinese Herbology (The Art of Healing with Herbs). You can join the full programs or just take individual classes.

Professor Drew discussing the '5 Tastes of Food'
Our program in Classical Chinese Herbology encourages people from all walks of lifemedical professionals, laypeople, nutritionists, trainers, counselors, massage therapists and more—interested in improving their personal health and the health of their clients.

     The Five Element system of Chinese Medicine was developed by ancient sages who gave more attention to restoring the health of the body with herbs and healing foods and less attention to the treatment of disease. Their observations developed into a time-honored tradition of complete health care that has diagnosed, treated and prevented illness for well over 3,000 years.

     If you are a health care professional our programs are designed to de-mystify Chinese Herbalism and Oriental Dietetics for the western health care practitioner and give a working knowledge of terminology and protocols that can be successfully applied to complement your health care practice.

     Moreover, our training programs were created with an accessible format of classes meeting one weekend a month and includes both academic, online and clinical training in diagnosis, food therapy, and herbal treatment.

     The school offers an online pharmacy, private consultations, a student clinic, Support Groups (Wellness Circle), cooking classes, field trips, and an annual health retreat.

What People are Saying About Professor Drew

Drew DiVittorio is an inspirational teacher who has the unique quality of bringing together the concepts of traditional Chinese Medicine with Modern Medicine and Nutrition. I recently attended his 4-week workshop for cleansing and detoxification in which we were given a wealth of information and guidance in order to bring our inner ecology into better balance. The workbooks he provided were comprehensive and understandable which made it probable that students would follow the 28-Day cleanse because each day had a plan. Rick
Before I met Drew, I experienced stomach bloating and a whole host of other gastrointestinal problems. after following the Healthy Living Program which included a variety of ancient Chinese herbs and healing foods, I look and feel more radiant. Thanks to Drew, I appreciate and listen to my body now.

The Role of the Spleen (Pi) in Traditional Chinese Medicine

Yin Organs Overview by  and 

The spleen (pi), of all the organs in traditional Chinese medicine, bears the least resemblance to its Western counterpart. The latter deals primarily with production and destruction of red blood cells and storage of blood.
In traditional Chinese physiology, the spleen plays a central part in the health and vitality of the body, taking a lead role in the assimilation of nutrients and maintenance of physical strength.
