Wonderfully presented and very, very informative. Dr Montakab addresses and answers issues and questions that have come up in my 20 years of working in the Chinese Medicine world that wasn’t touched upon in my initial TCM training. As you grow as a practitioner in TCM/CCM, you continually become informed about what you don’t know, and hence you are constantly growing as you seek the answers. Dr Montakab’s very comprehensive lectures make this process enjoyable and rewarding.
