"The world is moving into the early days of its first
influenza pandemic in the 21st century."

"The swine flu virus is now
-World Health Organization Chief Dr. Margaret Chan
When it comes to taking care of you and your family, knowledge is the the key!  You may not even have hospitals available if a pandemic hits - Remember Argentina?  People rushing to the hospital effectively shut-down the health care system after the pandemic was declared.

There are two educational opportunities that we recommend:

First, David Christopher, Master Herbalist, will be teaching a class on August 1, 2009 called "Surviving Pandemics."  This class is part of a larger series of lectures on herbal remedies and  natural healing that will be held in Salt Lake City, Utah.  You can learn more and register by clicking here.  This class will expand on the topics discussed on this site and may very well save your life.

Second, we recommend you become a "Family Herbalist" through The School of Natural Healing.  This class will help you learn how to take care of almost any ailment your family will come across.  If the health-care system is shut down because of a pandemic you will need to be able to take care of things at home.  The Family Herbalist course is normally $495, but it is on special right now for just $100.  You can learn more and sign up here:  http://online.snh.cc.
