Herbal Medics University is a branch of The Human Path. The Human Path is a survival school that is focused around the survival of our human species. Their classes are sustainability and earth-centric, yet also very practical and realistic. They are structured similar to a university, in that they have core paths as well as electives (aka “peripheral classes”). All of their courses are focused on self-sustainability, and the subjects that fit into that focus span a very wide range as well as amazing depth in each subject.
