Immunity course

I think after the last few years we can all agree building our immunity is a good idea. But, the million dollar question – how to do it?

How can you use herbs in daily life to nourish your immune system?

How can you support your immune system using things you’re already doing – like brushing your teeth, making tea or cooking?

What are the best herbs to use (and when do I use them?

How does the immune system even work?

I’m the main home health caretaker in my house – how do I help my kids?

If you want to find out the answer to any of these questions, you’ll LOVE our live 4 week online Immunity Course.

This 4 week course will help you understand the basics of how the immune system works, as well as simple remedies, lifestyle habits and strategies for building it in daily life.
