“YES! This is exactly what I needed for my studies. I feel like I knew nothing before this course, and now I feel super confident to write any herbal exam. THANK YOU!”

Bootcamp student, Canada

“Sadly, when I first started practice a couple of decades ago, I didn’t work in a clinic that had Chinese herbs so I have barely used them for all of my years of practice. I took this course to refresh my memory in herbs, and wow, I am so happy that I chose to do this. It has stoked my passion for TCM and I am excited to use herbs in clinic again!”
