The following are important aspects of our seminars

  1. Our emphasis on working at the grass-roots, encouraging and supporting local people in developing and extending the skills they already have.
  2. 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.
  3. By introducing Artemisia annua, enabling healers, pastors, missionaries and health workers to become much more independent and successful in their treatment of malaria.
  4. After the seminar, participants will be able to treat Malaria effectively with medicinal plants, in particular with Artemisia annua. Each participant will be given seeds and be taught how to grow this delicate but extremely valuable plant. Furthermore, participants will be able to recognize at least 20 other medicinal plants, to produce different soaps, different medicinal oils and ointments, black stones for snake-bites and to use and construct a solar oven, etc.
  5. 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.
