Learn About How We Get Sick & More

While this course talks all about naturally preventing and treating viruses and colds with herbs, the first part of the course will actually walk you through how the human body works, how we get sick, the immune system, and more.

Before we can confidently navigate the human body with herbs, we must know how the body works!

You'll get resource print outs to keep with you as you go through the course. They will help you understand the body better, and give you that "ah-ha" moment when you can see how herbs link together with the human body!

A Powerful Student Testimonial

"For the past 2 months I have been suffering from mucus buildup and a cough. The minute nightfall came around, the coughing and discomfort begins. I can’t remember the last time I had a good night’s sleep, mainly because of the constant coughing. This cough was like a dry cough, although I felt something in the middle of my chest I couldn’t get it out of my system.

I started taking Amy’s virus course and it has opened the doors to restoring my health. I have been suffering for years, and thousands of dollars, in medical care and have gotten nowhere. It’s only been a couple of days since I started taking this course, but I decided to make myself some herbal teas using loose leaf herbs that Amy suggested.

Today is my second day of taking this tea, and this morning I got up still stuffed up and could feel all that mucus building up at the back of my throat, unable to get it out of my system. I decided to make myself a smoothie using the herbal tea for the base, and maybe 10 to 15 minutes after drinking it, I noticed that I started to have a runny nose and the mucus buildup started dripping like running water!

I mean this started from one minute to the next! I wasn’t even half way done with the smoothie and found myself coughing all this nastiness out. After a while,  the running nose STOPPED and the headaches are gone, the aches and pains in my body are also gone! I also have what is called Migratory arthritis, which occurs when pain spreads from one joint to another. In this type of arthritis, the first joint may start to feel better before pain starts in a different joint. 

The latest joint affect has been my elbow. It’s been like this for about a month. I can’t pickup a cup of tea without feeling pain, my husband ends up being an extension of my body. Today, all the pain has subsided from my body—NO PAIN and I’m able to use my hands. I can only attribute this to the tea I’m currently taking, and the knowledge I have gained from Amy’s herbal course! " — CeCe, HH Student
