Student Testimonial:

“Kerri has helped my diagnosis move beyond the limiting standard dogma and transcend to a position of creating custom formulas with precision and comfort. The clearing and then tonifying concept, while simple, has been revelatory and empowering. Kerri teaches this with ease and seamlessness in the same way: by clearing out turbid mentalities around diagnosis and allowing for true insight to shine. I highly recommend her classes!”

“If you haven’t attended one of her courses or worked with her in the Herb clinic, you’re in for a treat! My personal experience after attending her course is that herbs became more accessible and less esoteric to me.

Kerri doesn’t do “categories”, its simply: here is the presentation, what herbs would treat these phenomena. Also her method of alternately presenting information, then a case study exercise reduced learning & application to digestible chunks.”
