I recommend any course by Jake Fratkinwilliam d.Canada

I learned a lot in this 90 minute session. I have always struggles with herbology, but this has broken the individual herbs down and Dr. Fratkin explained the herbs well and simply. The pace was perfect and I was able to make notes and understand each formula as he went through it.Elaine R.Canada
