Founder of Herbal Medics Academy (AKA The Human Path)
Clinical Herbalism, Advanced Medicine Making, Herbal First Aid, Wilderness First Aid & First Responder
Sam Coffman began his medical education in the military as a U.S. Special Forces Medic (aka Green Beret medic)
in 1989. Prior to this six-year duty as a special forces medic he had already become highly interested in herbalism
as a method to provide health care in remote regions with limited medical supplies, and he was able to use much
of his special forces medic training to uniquely integrate the infrastructure and needs of field medicine with his
own growing brand of herbalism that focused on effectively working with large numbers of patients in
underserved or remote area herbal clinics, while also addressing community needs such as clean drinking water,
food and medicine sustainability and first aid education.
Over the next 30 years, Sam’s goal became the creation of an integrative medical model that embraces aspects of
western, eastern and local bioregional herbalism into a collaborative integration with orthodox western medicine.
In 2007, Sam founded a school (Herbal Medics Academy) that offers both online and on-site education in both
New Mexico and Texas.
Sam’s latest book “Herbal Medic” is in print and was a #1 Amazon best-seller in the Emergency Medicine and First
Aid categories for over 9 months.
