Get beyond echinacea and learn the full complement of herbal actions and nutritional strategies that can build immune resilience, fend off pathogens, or reign in an overactive system.
Even if it's not flu season, your immune system is constantly protecting you from pathogens in your environment - which means you've got to keep it running smoothly.
And for many of us, that constant vigilance gets out of hand and turns into problematic inflammation and autoimmunity.
Together, let's get your immune system into that "goldilocks" place - ready to protect you when you need it, calm and cool when you don't.
In this course, you'll learn how to:
The course includes over 36 hours of video instruction, as well as PDF handouts, quizzes and homework assignments, and more - plus weekly Q&A discussions where you can talk directly with Ryn and Katja.

Wow!!! This course was AMAZING. I was a registered nurse for 8 years before becoming a stay-at-home mom. I have learned more about the immune system and its many functions during this course than I did in my entire nursing career. Ryn and Katja have a gift at breaking down complex information into digestible and easy to apply bits and pieces. I walk away from this program a little sad - I dislike when a good thing ends - yet, thrilled to start applying the knowledge gained with both the pillars of health and some yummy herbal friends. Is this course for you? I have a one worded answer for you....YES!!!Read Less

Two heads are better than one!
Katja & Ryn almost always teach together. They each have particular talents and areas of interest, and their perspectives on certain issues are quite different! Together, they convey a fuller picture of the realities of herbal theory & practice than either one could do alone.
Katja is an herbalist and teacher working to help people rebuild their relationships with their bodies and their own ability to heal. She’s been in practice for nearly 20 years, but it all began with a desire to make her own “fancy tea” at home instead of paying high prices for imported blends at specialty stores. She’s kept that do-it-yourself ethic close to her heart.
Ryn has been a practicing herbalist since 2010. He came to herbalism by way of martial arts, where his first experiences with herbs were focused on getting back into the game and becoming more flexible, adaptable, and resilient. Passing that experience on to others is what keeps him motivated every day.
Together, Katja and Ryn teach everyone from children to elders, as well as pharmacy students from Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Northeastern University School of Pharmacy, where they both serve as associate faculty. Ryn and Katja are the authors of Herbal Medicine for Beginners, and the creators of the weekly Holistic Herbalism Podcast.
Teaching isn't just about conveying information - there's also an aspect of being someone's "cup of tea".
So we want you to take the first 14 days to really decide if you love it or not. If for any reason you feel like this program isn’t right for you - if we're just not your cup of tea - we’ll give you a full refund. You don't even need a reason - just please let us know within 14 days of purchase.
