What people are saying about this course

John makes it fun to learn the basics of herbal medicine-making. My friends and family, as well as my co-workers, are all asking me to get Nervade for them. John rocks! Peter M.
My mom was suffering from insomnia and the tincture I learned to make in class has her sleeping and feeling better during the day. I highly recommend this course. Rebecca L.
The classes here are fun and informative. We meet one night a week and learn stuff our ancestors used to take care of their families. Most of the people in the world use herbal remedies as their primary medicine and now we are too! This is important training everyone should take. Lanny T.
