I am an acupuncturist who took this course to learn a bit about herbs. I am prescribed herbs by my TCM practitioner. This course is giving me a better understanding of what the herbs Im taking are doing. And I found out that Jake feels it is safe for practitioners like myself to prescribe herbs found in classes 6,7 and 8. This is exciting. I found Jake to be an incredible source of knowledge on the topic of herbs. I am so happy I had this chance to study with someone with such an extensive lifetime of experience with herbs.

I always value Jake Fratkin's courses because he is a practicing clinician. Combining academics with life long clinical experience is always a stronger approach than courses given by those who are primarily lecturers or theoretical specialists.
