I studied western herbalogy and nutrition for one year with the Coastal Mountain College of Healing Arts. During my studies I found that the diagnostic system being taught was symptom based rather than wholistic. I switched to Chinese Medicine and studied for a further 4 years, focusing on acupuncture and Chinese herbal formulas, as well as studying the amazing diagnostic system of Traditional Chinese Medicine.
In the spring of 2000 I received my Diploma as a Doctor of Traditional Chinese Medicine from the International College of Traditional Chinese Medicine. Since Graduating I have gone on to study (in progress - more info to come)
