Introduction:

Anamed International has already conducted several seminars in Kenya, in particular in Nairobi, Machakos, Embu, Mombasa and South Nyanza. Members of anamed Kenya have held many seminars and workshops in many parts of Kenya – the knowledge and practice of Natural Medicine in Kenya is growing rapidly.

As a result of these seminars, the distribution of artemisia starter kits and the work of many active people and organizations, we are delighted to say that many individuals and families are today enjoying vastly better health.

In particular, malaria patients are being treated with Artemisia annua tea, diarrhoea is being treated with anti-amoeba tea and HIV/AIDS patients are benefiting enormously from artemisia tea and moringa leaf powder.

This seminar has the particular aim of strengthening the work of Natural Medicine in eastern part of Kenya. Although we are seeking participants from throughout Kenya, participants from these areas are particularly welcome.

The seminar will train 30 people (healers, pastors, missionaries, health workers and others active in the community) in:-

  • The recognition and knowledge of several medicinal plants, and their cultivation in a medicinal garden, especially Artemisia annua, neem, pawpaw, moringa, aloe, garlic, lemon grass and chilli.
  • The hygienic production of effective Natural Medicines from those plants, e.g. teas, different medicinal oils and ointments and tinctures. We will also to produce different soaps, black stones for snake-bites and learn how to use and construct a solar oven and drier.
  • The treatments of many medical complaints and diseases, especially malaria, skin problems, diarrhoea, HIV/AIDS and wounds.
  • The importance of good nutrition, a balanced lifestyle, clean water, a healthy environment, tree planting, the careful disposal of waste and other factors on health.

Following the seminar, we expect the participants to:

  • Create their own garden of medicinal plants,
  • Prepare their own Natural Medicines,
  • Treat themselves, their families and others within their area of competence, and
  • Teach their families, colleagues and others in their communities.

The following are important aspects of our seminars:

  • Our emphasis on working at the grass-roots, encouraging and supporting local people in developing and extending the skills they already have.
  • We encourage traditional healers and formal health workers such as doctors and nurses to work together. We help them to recognize the positive contribution that each makes, and encourage them to work out practical ways in which they can cooperate.
  • By introducing Artemisia annua, we enable participants to become much more independent and successful in their treatment of malaria, in their families, communities and health centres. Each participant will be given seeds and be taught how to grow this delicate but extremely valuable plant.
  • It is important that all participants have a commitment both to practicing what they learn and to teaching others, for example by conducting a similar seminar in Natural Medicine themselves, at least for a weekend.
  • All participants will work together in practical work and possibly in establishing a garden. They must bring suitable clothes with them for such activities.
  • Participants must attend for the entire program; to come only on some days is not acceptable.
  • Those participants who are Christians should bring with them a Bible. (Every day starts with an ecumenical devotion, participation in that is voluntary.)
  • All participants should bring plant material of at least one medicinal plant from their region.

We look forward to hearing from you!

With best wishes,

Yours sincerely,

 

Rebecca Nzuki
