Testimonials

Feedback From Our Students

 

General:

"The Veterinary Herbal Apprenticeship & Retreat course you and Kris taught was phenomenal and life changing. I was blown away by how thorough and generous you are with your knowledge. I cannot begin to tell you how excited I was to learn so much. You are so full of enthusiasm, generosity, and striving for excellence in what you do. I am so grateful Laurie. Kris’ wisdom, knowledge, peaceful demeanor, and encouragement added so much to the self care part of the course. I think about what both of you taught us every day out here in the trenches.

 

On Our Materia Medica:

"The lectures were great--lots of good information. I like the inclusion of traditional uses and energetics of the herbs--gives insight into subtleties of herbal action."

 

On Our Labs:

"Labs were fun and informative and helped me gain confidence in making herbal products for self and family (which I do a lot now)."

 

On Our Herb Walks:

"Loved them! Seeing, touching, tasting, smelling plants in their natural environment deepened my connection with them and appreciation of them as living entities. "

 

On Our Homeworks:

"These gave me a welcome "excuse" to spend time researching herbs I didn't know much about. I also gained insights into the way information can be misrepresented on the Internet. Sometimes it was confusing and difficult to sort out 'the real story'."

PURPLE MOON HERB STUDIES' MISSION

Our mission is to educate veterinarians and allied professionals on the use of Herbal Medicine, Nutrition and Food Therapy, Hospice care, Ayurveda, and more.  Our training teaches professionals how to blend a variety of wholistic modalities into a western veterinary practice. We combine traditional knowledge about herbal usage with current scientific studies to enhance understanding of herbal actions and safety.  We are well-versed in the use of over 400 herbs, administered by tinctures and extracts (concentrated oral formulas), capsules and tablets, teas, lozenges, ointments and salves, and aromatherapy (inhaled essential oils in baths, candles, etc.). Dr. Laurie Dohmen and her associates provide instruction through our own structured classes, private sessions and at conferences. We provide a more wholistic approach to veterinary medicine and nutrition with our homecooking recipes and alternative treatment modalities for pets. We also provide wholistic self-care training for veterinarians themselves.

AHVMA Holistic Educator of the Year Award

 

I love what I do! Teaching fellow veterinarians all the amazing ways herbs, food, and other holistic modalities can help our patients is so satisfying. It is even more rewarding when my students share with me their success stories treating with what they have learned in Purple Moon classes. I know by teaching I am helping so many more patients than I could if I were still in private practice.

 

On September 12th, 2022 I was awarded the American Holistic Veterinary Medical Association's Council of Elders Holistic Educator of the Year Award. I am so grateful for this honor. To be distinguished by my peers was such a recognition of Purple Moon Herbs and Studies, all our instructors, and myself. I now know that others see the difference we are making in the veterinary field.
