Well, after 4 years (actually 30 years if you count when I started my herbal studies at 17 years old - yes you can do the math!) IT IS FINISHED!!!!!
FINALLY received my 2nd certificate today to complete the double set - Advanced Diploma of Naturopathy & Advanced Diploma of Western Herbal Medicine!!! Whoo Hoo!!! Now to find space to hang them on the wall behind me with the other studies I have completed over the years!
I can't say how excited I am be through the red-tape and endless study hours it has taken to get here, and past the nay-sayers and even other naturopaths who tried to stop me accessing herbal products while I was studying (yes that's 100% true) even though I was working fully mentored in clinic with Ruth Sharkey and doing absolutely nothing wrong / illegal! Crazy scared people huh?!
Anyway, I'm 100% legit now, and able to 'hang my shingle' and open the door wide and clear.
VERY EXCITED AND HAPPY, AND GRATEFUL FOR THE FRIENDS, FAMILY, PATIENTS (and patience shown too!) WHO HAVE SUPPORTED ME ON THIS LONG JOURNEY! THANK YOU FOR BELIEVING IN ME!
