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 inFundamentals 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 the 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.
This course expands upon the basic principles taught in Seven Keys to Effective Natural Healing, adding a lot more techniques and a deeper understanding of how natural healing works.
This class will be taught via webinar and online instruction. It also includes a 175 page course manual. Here are the nine lessons in this course.
Lesson 1. Pain Relief without Medication
No one likes pain, even though it serves a useful function in our lives by warning us when something is wrong. In this lesson, we explore what happens when tissues are injured. We discuss the inflammatory process and the four signs of inflammation (heat, swelling, redness and pain) and how to reverse the inflammation, speed the healing and relieve the pain using a variety of pain relief techniques.
Lesson 2. Herbal First Aid for Minor Injuries
In addition to the pain relieve techniques described in lesson one, there are various herbs that can be used to reduce the inflammation, promote healing and relieve pain in injuries. We discuss astringent and mucilagionous herbs in depth, plus additional remedies that are useful for treating injuries and relieving pain, such as homeopathic arnica.
Lesson 3. Basic Herbal Therapy for Acute Illness
This lesson explains the basic ABC principles of treating acute illness. It discusses the nature of symptoms and how to work with symptoms, instead of against them, to speed healing. It presents the furnace analogy model of illness and the flaws in the germ theory of disease.
Lesson 4. Herbal Hydrotherapy for Acute Illness
This lesson teaches the use of Thomsonian herbal hydrotherapy as a system of treating acute illnesses. This includes therapies like enemas, sweat baths, the cold sheet treatment and drawing baths as remedies for acute ailments. These proceedures will often knock out a cold or flu in a matter of a few hours.
Lesson 5. Specific Therapies for Acute Illness
This session covers specific things you can do to relieve the pain and promote healing with sore throats, earaches, headaches and other specific acute ailments. These techniques have allowed people to relieve these conditions in 30 to 60 minutes in many cases.
Lesson 6. Basic Therapies for Chronic Illness
This lesson explain chronic illness as extension of acute illness. It shows how tissue damage creates acute inflammation, which if not properly treated can turn into subacute inflammation, then chronic disease and ultimately degenerative illness. The nature of the reversal process and the healing crisis are discussed.
Lesson 7. Essentials of Good Nutrition
This lesson discusses how to heal with food. It builds upon the discussion already presented in Seven Keys to Effective Natural Healing to provide more specific information about what constituents a healthy diet. We will cover how to make healthy choices of proteins, fats and carbohydrates and common food allergens.
Lesson 8. Healing Through Detoxification
This lesson discusses using colon cleansing, liver cleansing and other forms of detoxification to promote healing. It also provides suggestions on how to detoxify your life by minimizing your exposure to chemicals, environmental pollutants, food additives and other substances that can damage your health.
Lesson 9. Supplements: Nutritional Health Insurance
This final lesson covers the basic nutritional supplements most people can benefit from taking. These include enzymes, probiotics, vitamins and minerals, fiber, antioxidants and essential fatty acids.

Detailed Table of Contents: We’ve added a nine-page Table of Contents (which also serves as an index) to the front of the book. We list every condition and product in this index so you can rapidly find the information you need.
Section Tabs: To make it even easier to look things up, we've added tabs for each of the six sections in the book. This allows you to rapidly navigate to the exact section you want to reference.
