REAP is planning to conduct a Natural Medicines Training Seminar
Sunday 22nd October to Saturday 28th October 2023
the Subiaco Centre in Karen, a suburb of Nairobi.

The Aims

The aims of the October 2023 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.

  • treat themselves, their families and others within their area of competence
  • teach their families, colleagues, and others in their communities
