With World-Renowned Plant Medicine Pioneer &
Leading Grassroots Healthcare Expert
David Crow, LAc
 
A 5-Module On-Demand Video Training
 
 
 

Explore ancient, powerful, tried-and-true antiviral herbs — from your own garden to the local grocery store and beyond — to safely and effectively address viral conditions and create your healthiest life.

Discover the scientific research that validates what classical Ayurvedic and Chinese medicine have known for centuries — and learn to understand it like a clinical herbalist — to take your self-care to a whole new level.

 

While our current global situation is frighteningly new, viral infections are as old as humans...

Thousands of years ago, classical medical systems like Traditional Chinese Medicine and Ayurveda didn’t understand microbiology as modern science does, but they used a vast pharmacopeia of herbs for treating infectious diseases that we now know as viral conditions.

For millennia, physicians of these lineages have used both complex formulas and single herbs to reduce the severity of symptoms and speed the healing of viral infections.

Now, modern scientific studies are confirming much of what was long known through empirical evidence.

There’s a large body of new research that validates the potent antiviral powers of many herbs, such as:

  • Inhibiting viruses from adhering to host cells
  • Impeding virus penetration into cells
  • Curbing virus replication
  • Averting the permeation of viruses across skin and mucous membranes
  • Enhancing host cell defense

How can this help you and your loved ones?

By combining the traditional knowledge of how to use antiviral herbs with the emerging science of how they work, we’re now — at this crucial period in our history — entering a time when medicinal plants can come to the forefront of both clinical practice AND self-care, to help address the urgent health challenges we’re facing.

This is especially important right now because to the best of our ability, we’re staying away from clinics and hospitals — and we’re about to completely restructure our society and the way we do healthcare.

Now, in the throes of the biggest global health crisis in modern history, renowned plant medicine expert David Crow will be teaching sober, leading-edge, clinically based practices for using both common botanicals and major, yet lesser-known antiviral herbs.

David has taught widely on herbology for decades and teaches extensively on modern epidemics — yet this is the first time he’s sharing this special training on botanical antivirals. And it couldn’t come at a more critical time.

Like many of us, you’re likely wondering:

  • Which herbs can I take that fight viruses?
  • How can a home pharmacy support me and my family — especially when we’re staying away from healthcare facilities?
  • Where can I find antiviral herbs if supplies run low?
  • How can I safely combine botanicals?
  • How do I sift through all the misleading information about plant medicine that’s out there?
  • How do I figure out what genuine scientific studies actually mean ?
  • What can I do to maximize plant medicine’s healing power?

In each video class with David as your guide, you’ll explore clinical-level self-care... the therapeutic qualities of herbs as applied to viral conditions... safe and effective uses and dosages... how to combine immune-boosting herbs with antivirals... how to source herbs... up-to-date medical research and how to interpret the findings... dietary and lifestyle strategies to enhance the therapeutic benefits of botanicals... and much more.

An important note about COVID-19 and natural medicine: This course is not intended to prevent, diagnose, or treat disease. In fact, it’s designed to help you weed out the false claims about herbs and essential oils, and think about botanical medicine in the analytical, informed way a clinical herbalist does.

Learn to Safely Use Botanical Antivirals — With the Guidance of a World-Renowned Plant Medicine Pioneer

Join us for this important new training with David, a master herbalist, aromatherapist, and acupuncturist with over 30 years of experience.

Over five online sessions, David will share everything you need to know to take your self-care to a whole new level — so that understanding botanical antivirals like a clinical herbalist will come naturally to you.

Under David’s mentorship, you’ll discover dozens of common and lesser known antiviral herbs, why bitter herbs can be as effective or more so than antiviral drugs, specifically how scientific research is confirming what the ancient Chinese and Ayurvedic systems have known for ages, and how to put this information to use in your life immediately.

You’ll see more clearly why herbal medicine is more crucial and relevant now than ever. If you’d like, you’ll get on the forefront of revitalizing the practice of growing a home pharmacy. You’ll find out about drug resistance to viruses and how antiviral herbs can support and potentize medications.

You’ll explore herbal formulas for contagious respiratory diseases, lessening the severity of infections, and speeding the healing process. And you’ll find out how and why the future of antiviral treatment is in combining allopathic and herbal medicines.

David will also shed light on common myths and questionable treatments — showing you how to apply plant medicine safely, effectively, and affordably.

If you choose to take this journey, you’ll experience a profound understanding of herbs that have broad-spectrum antiviral properties, boost the immune system, protect the lungs, and more.

By exploring antiviral plants in this way, you can strengthen your immunity and resilience. You can harmonize your body’s energy. You can reduce the intensity of bugs you catch and shorten your recovery time. You can start creating your healthiest life — even in these vulnerable times.

This new knowledge of the plant kingdom’s power will help you grow deeper roots for holistic living, allowing you to better navigate health crises — not to mention stress, fear, and anxiety.

Your enrollment includes lifetime access to a full 17-part audio course from David called Combining Herbs & Essential Oils. (This bonus course alone has 400+ botanical formulas completely spelled out!)

David’s students consistently praise his expertise in everything from classical Asian medicine, modern complementary medicine, grassroots healthcare, herbs, and essential oils to scientific research, meditation, spirituality, and more. He’s studied medicinal plants in their environments all over the world, is known as one of our time’s greatest synthesizers of wisdom regarding plants, and he’s helped transform the lives of thousands around the globe.

What You’ll Discover in These 5 Modules

In this 5-part transformational intensive, David will guide you through the fundamental skills and competencies you’ll need to successfully use herbal remedies and clinical-level formulas to address viral conditions and create your healthiest life.

This course will feature teachings, training sessions, and experiential practices with David. Each session will build harmoniously upon the previous ones, so you’ll develop a complete holistic understanding of the practices, tools, and principles you’ll need to understand — like you’re your very own clinical herbalist — herbs that provide protection from viral conditions.

 

Module 1: The Fragrant Pharmacy — Antiviral Powers of Aromatic Herbs & Spices (May 13)

 

Botanical antivirals are not necessarily rare species known only to herbalists. Some of the most potent compounds are found in common culinary herbs and spices.

Knowing how to use these plants in your diet for protection against viral infections is only the beginning of utilizing their powers.

As you’ll discover, they can also be used in a variety of targeted and highly therapeutic ways to treat both acute and chronic conditions caused by a variety of virus species.

In this module, you’ll explore:

  • Scientific research that validates the healing effects of antiviral herbs within the human body
  • The difference between in-vitro and in-vivo research, and what’s relevant and applicable in scientific studies on antiviral herbs
  • Antiviral herbs that should be used in your daily diet for both protection and treatment
  • Herbs that you likely have in your kitchen right now — with known antiviral powers
  • The important antiviral compounds found in common herbs and spices, such as Rosmarinic acid in rosemary, mint, and lemon balm
  • Traditional uses of herbs such as thyme, tulsi, sages, and ginger for contagious respiratory conditions, and the modern research confirming their antiviral powers
  • Key differences between botanical antivirals and antiviral drugs
  • An overview of the antiviral mechanisms of botanical species
  • How classical Chinese medicine and Ayurvedic medicine view viral infections and their treatments
 

Module 2: Nourishing the Essence — Immune Boosting & Antiviral Powers of Adaptogens (May 20)

 

Adaptogenic herbs are gaining more and more recognition and popularity for their abilities to nourish, balance, and strengthen the immune, nervous, and endocrine systems, thereby increasing vitality and resistance to stress and toxins.

These herbs also possess significant antiviral powers and are therefore of primary importance for not only boosting immunity against contagious viral infections, but also speeding recovery from acute infections, and overcoming the weakening effects of chronic infections

In this module, you’ll explore:

  • How adaptogens are used by medical herbalists to treat virus species such as herpes and Epstein Barr, and viral conditions such as influenza and hepatitis
  • The antiviral activities and mechanisms of adaptogenic herbs such as licorice, rhodiola, and astragalus against various viral species
  • Preparation methods, correct dosages, and safe, effective combinations of adaptogens and other antiviral herbs
  • Major species of accessible medicinal mushrooms known for their antiviral effects, such as chaga, maitake, and turkey tail
  • Scientific research studies confirming the powers of botanical antivirals herbs
 

Module 3: The Power of Bitter — Alkaloid-Based Botanicals With Antiviral Properties (May 27)

 

Some of the strongest antiviral herbs are those that contain berberine and other alkaloids. These herbs have broad-spectrum antimicrobial powers, and they can be targeted to specific organs, as needed, through herbal combinations.

Because of their potency and possible adverse reactions if taken for too long or in higher dosages, these species are the most challenging to use clinically. Skillful formulation and consideration of the individual’s constitution and digestive power is required.

When carefully used, these herbs can be as effective or more so than antiviral drugs, and in some cases are gaining recognition as being able to inhibit and eradicate multidrug resistance strains of microbes.

In this module, you’ll explore:

  • Secrets to combining immune-boosting and antiviral herbs — for holistic treatment and protection
  • How to safely use potent antiviral herbs such as neem, coptis, and goldenseal
  • Emerging multidrug resistance and the use of antiviral herbs to support and potentize medications
  • Overview of the major viral species
  • Formulas for supporting detoxification from viral inflammation
 

Module 4: Protecting the Lungs — Herbs & Essential Oils With Antiviral Powers for the Respiratory System (June 3)

 

There are numerous herbs and essential oils with antiviral powers that are used for treating respiratory infections. As with other categories of botanical antivirals, modern research is confirming what classical medicine has known for centuries, while also revealing the biological and cellular mechanisms responsible for their actions.

The classical formulas of Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine, combined with contemporary aromatherapy, are a rich repository of valuable knowledge. Applying this knowledge for clinical level self-care is more relevant than ever for protecting ourselves from microbial contagion, lessening the severity of infections, and speeding the healing processes.

In this module, you’ll explore:

  • Emerging research of botanical species showing proven or potential powers against viruses, and how this can be applied for clinical-level self-care
  • Modern applications and scientific confirmation of classical Chinese herbal formulas for contagious respiratory diseases
  • The mechanisms of how essential oils work against viruses
  • Highly effective aromatherapy treatments for respiratory viral infections
  • How to create antiviral formulas for the respiratory system using herbs such as andrographis, osha, yerba santa, self-heal, and myrrh
 

Module 5: Clinical Pearls — Lesser-Known Antiviral Herbs Used in Clinical Herbology (June 10)

 

Many species of botanical antivirals are not generally found outside of the clinical practices of medical herbalists. Many of these species are underappreciated local plants that are widely available, and therefore represent an easily accessible addition to your home pharmacy.

Unlike the culinary herbs and adaptogens that can be used for extended times as part of the diet, these herbs tend to be more potent and therefore require a greater level of knowledge to be used safely and effectively. These herbs are often found in Asian medicine, and are also emerging through modern research as important sources of antiviral compounds.

In this module, you’ll explore:

  • Old European herbal remedies with modern antiviral applications
  • How to create a home pharmacy of lesser-known antiviral herbs that can be easily cultivated and wildcrafted
  • Major antiviral herbs for your home pharmacy including houttuynia, isatis, red root, and others
  • How classical Chinese medicine and Ayurvedic medicine view viral infections and their treatments
  • New science in herb-drug interactions: the future of antiviral treatment using combined allopathic and herbal medicines
