Testimonial of Kelvin A. – Oct 25/13
I took the Dominion Herbal College Chartered Herbalist course in the last half of 2013. It was an excellent course. The first part covered anatomy. The second part covered herbalism, and the last part covered nutrition and other topics. The best points were a strong anatomy section, and that the herbalism and nutrition sections were written by an experienced medical herbalism doctor (Dr. Herbert Nowell) and an experienced holistic health practitioner (Mrs. Ella Birzneck) along with several other well-qualified contributors.
