Dear Friends,
We are pleased to see that more and more people are eager to learn more about Natural Medicine, to produce medicine themselves, to study how to grow Artemisia annua even in difficult climates, to know how to use it for Malaria patients, how to combine it with Moringa to improve dramatically the health of AIDS patients - and also how to produce different soaps, Black stones, treatments for serious diseases like cholera, when no other medicine is available… and we are pleased that so many people want to share all this experience with their friends and colleagues so that many more people become "anamed experts".

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 herbalists and formal health workers such as doctors and nurses to work together. We help them to recognise 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 herbalists, pastors, missionaries and health workers to become much more independent and successful in their treatment of malaria.
  4. It is important that all participants have a commitment both to practising what they learn and to teaching others, for example by conducting a similar seminar in Natural Medicine themselves, at least for a weekend.
  5. It must be made clear to all prospective participants that participants receive no fees for their attendance.
  6. Transport costs must be met by the participants, their employer or sponsor.
  7. All participants will work together in practical work and in establishing a garden. They must bring suitable clothes with them for such activities.
  8. Participants must attend for the entire programme; to come only on some days is not acceptable.
  9. Those participants who are Christians should bring with them a Bible. (Every day starts with an ecumenical devotion, participation in that is voluntary.)
  10. All participants should bring plant material of five medicinal plants from their region.

After this seminar, participants will be able to recognise at least 20 medicinal plants, to use and construct a solar oven, to produce different soaps, different medicinal oils and ointments, black stones for snake-bites… and, most important of all, will be able to treat  Malaria effectively with medicinal plants like Artemisia annua. Each participant will be given some seeds and be taught how to grow this delicate plant.

We  look forward to hearing from you! With best wishes, Yours sincerely,
Philip Mateja, Pastor Bulilo, and collaborators.
