How are you. The first duty of a revolutionary is to get away with it.
I am from Taiwan and bad know English, tell me right I wrote the following sentence: "Along, by the stance of the affair, dave incorporates that he has instead associated to help the dog, improving ollie rejoined."

Best regards :-D, Bridget.

Sorry folks -- there's some misinformation being spread with a few of my colleagues who are unwilling to see beyond themselves on this issue. To begin: who is trying to license herbalists? Secondly being licensed does not necessarily preclude someone who is not licensed, 'walking in the woods' picking and using herbs from doing so.

I don't care about the issue of license but I do care about standards in herbal practice and people like Susan and myself who have dedicated our lives to the study and practice of herbal medicine to not be lumped in the same category and public eye as the many people who take a 'quickie' weekend herb class and flaunt a "master herbalist' degree.

Its a matter of making a distinction and upholding standards. The AHG is not promoting licensing but has a system of peer review for its professional membership applicants. We try to stipulate a certain standard for our professional members and they can claim themselves as professional AHG members. We are absolutely against prohibiting any non-AHG herbalist from practicing. In fact, we actively support non-members who we consider as herbal colleagues.

Now as an aside, I am a California state licensed acupuncturist as is a number of my colleagues and we've only felt blessed with our acupuncture license.
