Most people believe that herbal medicine is primitive—weaker and less reliable than modern drugs. But nothing could be farther from the truth. As you learn the basic principles and techniques presented in Fundamentals of Natural Healing, you’ll discover that natural remedies work faster and more effectively than modern medicine in treating common colds, minor injuries, and acute diseases.
Hi, I'm Steven Horne, the author of this course and I want you to know that once I grasped the concepts that I share in Fundamentals of Natural Healing, I was able to perform minor miracles as the primary healthcare provider in my own family. For instance:
- I’ve completely relieved the pain of smashed fingers in less than 20 minutes with no subsequent bruising or loss of a fingernail.
- I’ve literally “rubbed away” pain from bumps, scrapes and even sunburn with children, family members and friends in just 20-30 minutes.
- I’m completely massaged away the pain of sore throats in as little as 20 minutes.
- I’ve seen a sick, feverish child suffering from a cold or flu running around and playing, completely well, in just a few hours.
- Ninety-five percent of the time I’ve been able to relieve tension, sinus and even migraine headaches in 20-30 minutes using nothing more than my hands.
When I hear about parents struggling with children in pain from earaches, fevers and other ailments, my heart goes out to them. I often think of the Biblical verse, “My people perish for lack of knowledge,” because I’ve relieved many of these conditions in a matter of hours without antibiotics, pain killers or over-the-counter drugs. And the amazing thing is that learning how to do these things is remarkably simple.
That’s why I created Fundamentals of Natural Healing. In the time you would spend waiting to see a doctor or sitting in the emergency room, you can resolve most common health problems yourself. Just think of how confident you’d feel if you knew how to handle most simple injures and ailments yourself and how much money you could save on medical bills.
This is not only possible, it’s actually quite easy. You will be able to perform healing wonders like this once you know the secrets of natural healing revealed in the Fundamental of Natural Healing.
Fundamentals of Natural Healing teaches you in three stages, starting with how to deal with injuries, then moving to acute ailments and finishing with chronic illness and prevention. At each stage, I’ll explain what to do, why you are doing it, and why it works. This is valuable and unique because most books tell you what to do but don’t really explain why you are doing it.
