November 2018 Natural Medicines Seminar

November 2018 Natural Medicines Training Seminar in Karen, Nairobi, Kenya

REAP and anamed Kenya are planning to conduct another Natural Medicines Training Seminar at the end of November 2018 at the Subiaco Centre in Karen, a suburb of Nairobi.

The Aims

The aims of the November 2018 Natural Medicines Training Seminar are to train people (healers, pastors, missionaries, health workers, teachers and others active in the community) in:

  • The recognition, knowledge, and cultivation of several medicinal plants in a medicinal garden.
  • The hygienic production of effective Natural Medicines from these plants, e.g. teas, different medicinal oils and ointments and tinctures. We will also produce different medicinal soaps, medicinal charcoal, black stones for scorpion stings and snake bites and learn how to use several simple technologies.
  • The treatments of many medical complaints and diseases, including malaria, skin problems, diarrhoea, HIV/AIDS, and wounds.
  • The influence of good nutrition and lifestyle on health.
