Course Reviews:

VERY interesting explanation

January 15, 2024

VERY interesting explanation to understand how the cancer process works, its diagnostic and prognostic elements. Dr. Hartung’s approach is very valuable both for the clarity and sensitivity with which she shares her knowledge, as well as her view regarding the integration of TCM in this context. I especially recommend it for therapists, it helps a lot to lose the “fear of the unknown” behind this complex and poorly explained disease.
