Helix 2

Helix 3

These show all of the techniques you will need.
However since the waves are repeating pattern, you could probably start with a straight path and apply Effect/Distort.../Zig-Zag, Smooth...

After you Object/Path/Outline Stroke the shaped path, you could offset a copy of the expanded shape and use Pathfinder/Subtract Back to create the lighter colored/front shapes to create the shading.
