The School of Natural Healing
Healing Through Knowledge and Truth
Since 1953 students of The School of Natural Healing, and those who have used the information from our students, have witnessed miracles in health and healing. We literally have file cabinets full of testimonials from the paper days, and computer files with several gigabytes of testimonials more recently. Far too many to share them all.
If you want to hear more about what others have said about their experience with The School of Natural Healing this is the place for you. We've selected several testimonials from over the years and have included some of the longer stories and experiences as well.
The way herbs healed the body hundreds and even thousands of years ago continues to work today. The information hasn't changed over the years, but the way it is delivered certainly has. Therefore we've put an emphasis on testimonials from those who have gone through the online course.
“Now I don’t have to depend on someone else for our health!”
Thank you very much for sharing this wonderful knowledge & running this wonderful school. It has helped with my family, including pets, so many times that it has more than paid for the program. And I am just beginning to learn.
The best part is now I feel I don’t have to depend on someone else for our health. My hat goes off to both of you for the fine jobs you do.
Thank you again for everything you have done to change my life.
“The Nurses were just dying of curiosity to know what we had used.”
I began studying with the School of Natural Healing in 2002. On Thursday afternoon all that training was put to the ultimate test. My eight-year-old son was crossing the street when he was struck by a pickup truck.
He sustained a closed skull fracture, concussion, some intracranial bleeding, 2 lacerations of the lip, broken teeth, an abrasion on his cheek, a black eye and bruises on his knees and elbows.
The herbs we used fascinated everyone. His recovery was so quick - out of the hospital in less than 72 hours. The nurses were just dying of curiosity to know what we had used. I patiently explained each ingredient and what it was doing for him.
The lacerations to his lip required 4 stitches which came out yesterday. The swelling and bruising of his face is almost gone and the abrasions are barely noticeable.
We expect him to make a full recovery with no scars and no lasting problems. The doctors are amazed, but we know that God’s grace and His herbs healed our son in record time.
Cured son of rheumatic fever.
I want you to know that your Anti-Plague syrup saved my son’s life. He had rheumatic fever, and was so bad that the doctors had given up on him. We had heard Dr. Christopher’s tapes previously and how the formula was given to him when faced with an incurable disease, and we felt maybe our son also fit the category. So we tried it.
My wife and I use herbs and we studied and figured out what he needed and they were all in your Anti-Plague formula. Praise God for Dr. Christopher!

Healed children and kitten from Ringworm!
My husband brought home a stray kitten that was infected with ringworm. The kids kept kissing the kitten and picked up the ringworm… on their faces, no less. From what we learned we mixed Chickweed ointment with 80 drops of tea tree oil. It cleared it up in two weeks.
We now recommend this mixture to anyone with a fungal infection. It appears to work on yeast infections and athlete’s foot as well as ringworm.
Oh, and it healed the kitten too! She is now fat and sassy with a shiny black coat, free of any defects.
Able to heal extremely painful abscess quickly
A few weeks ago I called regarding an extremely painful large abscess on the back of my neck. I applied Cayenne Balm and put some Black Ointment on top of that to keep it covered.
After only a couple of applications the swelling began to reduce. Now, about two weeks later the abscess is completely gone. I applied the balm and the ointment religiously 2-3 times a day.
It is so wonderful to be able to heal myself topically and in such an unobtrusive way.
Thank you so much,
“She can straighten out her thumb completely”
My daughter of twelve developed a spur in the base of her thumb around two years old and could never straighten her thumb out. We were told by the orthopedic surgeon to leave it alone and that surgery was too risky for the possibility of total nerve damage.
About a year ago we heard of you and were encouraged to begin to soaking her hand in Calc Tea and vinegar and then put on BF&C ointment and Deep Heating Balm. Next we wrapped her hand in gauze and covered that with a cotton glove.
We did this procedure day and night. It took approximately one month for the spur to dissipate and she can straighten out her thumb completely.
“I want you to know that the School of Natural Healing has changed my life!”
I have Stein-Lenenthal Syndrome, an anti-ovulatory condition. I have spent several years and several thousand dollars going from doctor to doctor, specialist to specialist. They all said that I would not have a normal cycle without the assistance of hormones.
The hormones and fertility medicines that they had me on were literally killing me. I say that so strongly because that is what it felt like to me. My emotions were a total loss. My husband could not stand to be in the same room with me, and I really could not blame him.
I read about Dr. Christopher’s female corrective formula and decided to give it a healthy try.
One month after beginning to use it I had the most wonderful success! My cycle came for the first time in my life without the aid of hormones. Praise the Lord! It was as normal as anyone’s. And has been since!
Now my husband and I are trying for a child. This is something that I thought I would never have the chance to do. I want you to know that the School of Natural Healing has changed my life!
With many thanks,
“My first successful task was curing myself of stage 3 ovarian cancer!”
Long before I started my study I had purchased a copy of the 20th anniversary edition of your book, "The School of Natural Healing” while travelling in New York City. It quickly became a ‘bible’ to me.
My first successful task was curing myself of stage 3 ovarian cancer. Then in 2004 I thought “I am doing herbal work anyway, why not make it official and get certified from the school I had already learned so much from.”
Thank you so much, you will always have my deepest respect and admiration.
“He says we didn't have the same cold - but I know better!"
Since beginning this course, I've changed my entire life. I've stopped eating meats and dairy and have been trying to follow Dr. Christopher's philosophy. I've lost 19 pounds, my eyes and skin are clearer, and I can definitely feel a difference in my overall health.
Both my husband and I contracted a cold a few weeks ago - we woke up with raging sore throats. I stayed with my herbal remedies - the cayenne, honey and garlic for the throat, along with red raspberry/peppermint tea, etc. My sore throat was gone the next day and my cold was gone in 3. My husband is still sick. He says we didn't have the same cold - but I know better!
“This is invaluable information every mother wishes she had!”
This is an amazing and life changing work! I am a mother of young children and this is invaluable information every mother wishes she had. I no longer feel helpless in my home.
I no longer have to wait or rely on a doctor. Doctors are there for when we need them...we just don't seem to need them as much anymore. =) This is the kind of learning that keeps you longing for more information. I think that is a sign of truth.
“It was so helpful and so full of information.”
It was so helpful and so full of information about how to take care of myself and my family. It has already been so useful, I have used the Elderflower and peppermint tea so much already. The information on the herbal eyebright is fantastic, my grandmother has degenerative disease of the eyes and I only hope she will have an open mind.
Thank you so much
“This experience has been healing for my soul.”
Ever since I was little I had always felt the healing for the body that God designed would come from natural things, trees, flowers, grasses, etc. Now with the understanding I have from taking The Family Herbalist class it even further gives me more understanding of how the body works and more tools God has given us to be healthy and whole.
I believe Dr. Christopher was a tool God used for His purpose in helping those who wanted to be healed without the use of drugs and synthetic medicines.
This experience has been healing for my soul and a great encouragement for me to continue on with my passion in natural health.
“Some amazing stories from my first year using this information"
Dear David and Fawn Christopher,
I am one of the 2,000 new students that joined the School of Natural Healing Online last year. I am currently finishing level 500 and have felt a need to send this letter along with a profound sense of gratitude to you for the work that you are doing in shedding light on the miracle of our bodies and the beautiful healing foods and plants prepared for us by a loving God.
I wanted to take a minute and share some experiences I have had since I have began my studies with you and The School of Natural Healing. The following stories are just a fraction of what I have experienced since starting the school last year.
I have an 8 year old daughter, Katie, who has Down Syndrome. She has suffered chronic ear and sinus infections for years. We were constantly in the doctor’s office for another round of antibiotics. I knew that they were harsh on the body and was extremely concerned for her. One day I expressed my concern to her pediatrician that there must be something we could do to strengthen her immune system or eliminate something from her diet. I was laughed at and told it was just the lot Katie had been given and she would always be sick. I was furious.
I looked around for an alternative, signed up for the School of Natural Healing and Katie has not been back to any doctor in almost a year. We have all but eliminated milk from her diet and when she does start in on a sinus or ear infection we start her on Dr. Christopher’s Infection Formula and Kid-e-Mune and the results are immediate.
Cayenne, X-ceptic, and BF&C
Just weeks into the first class I was chopping carrots and sliced my thumb clear down to the bone, severing the nerves. I could tell I had severed the nerves because the pain was not only in my thumb but in the other fingers and down my hand as well. I don’t know if I should admit this or not but when I saw the blood gushing from my thumb I was excited because I could see if Cayenne would really stop the bleeding in 10 seconds. I put a tsp of cayenne into a glass of water and drank it and sure enough…it worked!
I then walked over to my neighbor who is a nurse. She and I had talked several times previous about what I had been learning. I asked her if I was stupid for not going to the ER for stitches. She was concerned that I didn’t want to go but curious as well. I covered my thumb with X-ceptic and BF&C and put on a bandaid. I did this several times a day and was fascinated as the days progressed and there was no infection setting in.
Soon the nerves in my thumb and the surrounding fingers began tingling as they healed. Within a couple of weeks you couldn’t tell I had ever cut my thumb.
My mother and Kidney Failure
By mid summer I had finished the level 100 course and had just started level 200 when I got a call from my sister telling me that my mother wasn’t doing very well. I packed up my herbs and drove the five hours to my parent’s home. I wanted to cry when I walked in and saw my mom. Her entire body was so swollen you could barely recognize her. The doctor’s office had just phoned in test results shortly before I arrived. She was in Kidney Failure. They told her to let them know if she got worse and they would see her the next week. I couldn’t believe it. KIDNEY FAILURE? SEE YOU NEXT WEEK?
I looked at my mom and said, “Mom, I can help you if you will let me”. She must have been scared because she agreed. I really didn’t know what I was doing because I had only been studying for a few weeks but it had to be better then, “See you next week.” I put her on the three day juice cleanse and the extended herbal cleanse.
Because it was kidney failure we emphasized the Kidney Formula. I took her off her water pill and substituted Dandelion instead. Because she is diabetic, I also put her on the Pancreas Formula. We eliminated all dairy products and the soda pop. Her neck was so swollen that we did Mullein and Lobelia fomentations for several nights.
I stayed for ten days. When she went in the blood tests the following week she was out of danger, the swelling was almost gone and all her numbers were headed in the right direction. Over the next several weeks they continued to improve: Blood Pressure, Blood Sugar levels, Cholesterol leves…all of them.
I will never forget my dad walking me to my car as I prepared to leave. He hugged me goodbye and said that I had probably saved my mother’s life. I cried all the way home. Me, after only a few weeks was able to participate in a miracle.
This past October our entire family was blessed with the dreaded swine flu. Although the hospital was flooded with emergencies and had no beds left, we didn’t even need to see a doctor. Even Katie pulled through like a trooper. I was amazed the night I went up to bed and heard her horrible cough. I just rubbed X-ceptic, Mullein and Lobelia, and Anti-Spasmodic onto her little chest and she never coughed again the rest of the night. Amazing.
Although we did all the immune strenghthening things we could: Immucalm, Echinacea, ElderFlower and Peppermint, Infection, modified Cold Sheet Treatments, etc. we still had our favorite “symptom” reliever. Our family called it the Swine Flu Cocktail. We would mix tinctures of White Willow Bark, Kava Kava, and a few drops of Lobelia into a little juice. It took the edge off the headaches and sore throats so we could sleep.
Migraines and Hormonal Changease
Through diet I had been able to get rid of all my migraines except the one that happens with my cycle. I know I will eventually go through a Herbal regimine for this but I am already taking so many herbs with the extended cleanse, and others that I decided to wait.
A few months ago I started in with what I call, a period migraine. I took four Hormonal Changease capsules and two Wheat Germ Oil capsules and the pain was gone within a couple of hours. I now do this the first two mornings of my cycle and have been migraine free for three months.
My 92 year old Grandmother
Last month I got a call from my dad that my grandmother wasn’t feeling well. She had a slight fever and elevated blood pressure so they were taking her to the hospital. She was recovering from hemorrhoid surgery. Within two days of being in the hospital, she couldn’t walk, or eat and was on her second blood transfusion.
Although they ran some obligatory tests the doctors were quite calloused and just kept saying that she was 92 and this is what happens when you are 92. She continued to deterriorate and a few days later she was transferred to Hospice and the family was called in.
In Hospice they will let you bring in whatever you want so I brought my juicer and started her on fresh carrot juice, Vitalerbs and Herbal Iron. We also gave her Slippery Elm Gruel. I was there for one week and watched her go from lying there helpless to sitting up, feeding herself and beginning to walk. Everyone was amazed at her recovery.
Again, I was so overwhelmed with gratitude that someone as simple as I with simple knowledge could participate in a miracle. Thank you.
While I was there to help my grandmother, my mother burned her hand on the element in the oven. It was burned badly and she was in a lot of pain. (Again, I am terrible but all I could think was…cool I get to make a burn paste…I haven’t done that yet).
I had her soak her hand in cold water while I made the paste. I explained what I learned about pain and how it is misunderstood. I told her she wouldn’t even need a Tylenol if she would keep the burn paste on. If she woke up in pain during the night just put more on and go back to bed. We watched the skin soak it up right where the burn was and not around the edges. It was amazing.
My dad was speechless that she didn’t have any pain. Two days later she left it off all day while she did laundry. By evening the pain had returned with a vengeance. She didn’t do that again and the burn healed within a couple of weeks.
Last week my 16 year old son was skateboarding and broke his foot. I asked the doctor not to cast it so I could have him soak it. She was great and worked with me. I had him soak his foot in comfrey tea, sleep in BF&C fomentations and take about 15-20 “00” BF&C capsules a day.
He broke it Thursday evening and by Sunday night was starting to put pressure on it. By Tuesday he was (I am not kidding) in tennis shoes, hiking the Redwoods in California and tromping through caves. When we went back the following Thursday (7 days later) the Doctor couldn’t believe it.
I know you probably hear from people all the time but I still felt the need to thank you for continuing the work of your father and our Father. While I thank God daily for the miracle of bringing this knowledge into my life and allowing my to be a tool to bless others, I needed to thank you as well. For every one of these stories there are others I did not cite. It has been an incredible year. Thank you for teaching me.
“I am very touched at a deep soul level the more I learn."
I really enjoyed Dr. Mom's Healthy Living. I got alot from her real life stories and appreciated that she shared them. I was able to easily retain the information she presented. I also loved the book "How to Raise a Healthy Child in Spite of Your Doctor". (This should be a required handbook for every parent/parent to be.) I loved the fact that the author is a Pediatrician. Also, I love the fact that your Master Herbalist Program is online.
Again, my deepest thanks for offering this program online. I am very touched at a deep soul level the more I learn about these subjects and intend on using the gained knowledge as a future career in assisting others towards good health. Thanks for making it possible to learn about Dr. Christopher's miraculous natural remedies and healthy living lifestyle.
“I can be my own healer and not depend so much on conventional medicine."
What I liked about the course was that it made me understand why diseases happen and how our bodies react very sensitively to any imbalances. It also empowered me to say to myself that I can be my own healer and not depend so much on conventional medicine.
I definitely like the philosophy behind Dr. Christopher. He truly was a great healer. He set an example not only for himself but for those who he healed and to those who he wanted to share his knowledge with. His legacy will live on.
“I dont have to rely on doctors!"
The information I have learned from taking these courses is invaluable! I only wish I had known these things while I was raising my children. Some of my family think I'm crazy, others have been patient as I have used them as my experiments.
It is so empowering knowing I don't have to rely on doctors! I've had so much success using Dr. Christopher's formulas. The changes in my eating habits have given me more energy and less headaches. I always thought I knew about nutrition, but we as the public are misinformed.
I will forever be grateful for the knowledge I have gained through this school.
“It's really refreshing to get the truth explained in such an easy to learn format."
I've been involved in Natural health for over ten years. I liked the fact that the information in the course is accurate and credible, so I don't have to cross-reference everything that I read and learned. I also liked the fact that I could work at my own pace in the comfort of my home.
I think this school and the courses are a fantastic way to help increase the awareness, knowledge and natural health of the world. There is so much misinformation (a.k.a. lies) out there, especially when it comes to healthcare, that it's really refreshing to get the truth explained in such an easy to learn format.
“This was exactly what I was looking for."
I felt like I learned a lot and that I will be able to help my family become more self reliant when it comes to healing. I've always been interested in the healing properties of herbs, but I never realized just how beneficial they can be.
Thank you for putting so much time and effort into helping people like me understand and learn to use herbs to benefit ourselves and our loved ones. I really have learned a lot and hope to continue learning. And thank you for making it so accessible. This was exactly what I was looking for
“Seven months later I have lost 35 pounds and I am feeling great!"
I'm 45 with my wife pregnant with our 8th child on the way. I was steadily gaining weight and feeling very sluggish with hypothyroidism and multiple food allergies/sensitivities with the accompanying bowel problems.
I had been under the care of an M.D. who switched from Family Practice to Allergies & Environmental Medicine - an area of medicine which is decried intensively by the AMA. Well, although I got some relief, he didn't offer to cure the food allergies and thyroid problems.
I believe that grains are part of the blessings God gave man for nourishment, and knew that if that was true, then I should still be able to eat them without problems. I knew about Dr. Christopher because my father bought The School of Natural Healing when I was about 12 and I remember perusing it at various times.
About 7 months ago, I decided to take matters into my own hands, read Dr Christopher in more depth and started with the 3 day cleanse then onto the mucusless diet. 7 months later I have lost 35 lbs and am feeling great. I had to learn more, so I signed up for the Family Herbalist class. I now have the hope that when i am 65 and older i'll still be able to be an active dad with and for my children.
“I can count on one hand the times I have taken my children to the doctor."
I like that the material is so common sense and easy to use. I like being able to go online anytime to work on it so if I have more time one day or week, I can work more.
I like being able to get more of Dr. Christopher material, I have been studying and using it with my family of 9 children for about 30 years now. I can count on one hand the times I have taken my children to the doctor.
All of the remedies and formulas I have used have been very successful. We mix up the LB formula in several pound batches for all of the extended family. I use the yarrow, elder, peppermint for cold and flu. Dr. Christopher feels like part of my family.
My cousin had a son wounded in Afghanistan in November. He had his leg shattered. She has been giving him BF&C with the comfrey in it. In January he went back to Maryland Hospital for more surgery. The doctors said they had never seen such bone growth as he had. My cousin is VERY grateful for the formula.
If we could have everyone use Dr. Christopher Program, we wouldn't need the ridiculous Health Care Bill our government is trying to pass.
“The information is amazing!"
I love all the information and knowledge that this course is able to provide. I have learned a lot about how our bodies function and why illnesses and disease happen, and how to help our bodies heal. I have learned more from this course than I did in my college classes on health and wellness.
I really admire the life that Dr. Christopher lead, not just in his healing methods, but how he treated others. Thank you so much for this course. The information is amazing!
