From Our Students

“I’ve been taking my asthma tonic since Herbalism 2 ended this spring and it has done wonders for my asthma! I stopped taking my daily inhaler and haven’t had to use my emergency inhaler nearly as much as I usually do. I brag about it to anyone who will listen. So thank you!”

-- Laura

“I wanted to tell you how much I LOVE your class, and that it has awakened something deep within me. For me it’s the missing link.”
