Herbal clinic

Herbal clinic

Africa has a long tradition of herbal medicine. Many of the diseases and ailments common to life in Africa can be cured using traditional medicines, and the Director Health of OPC Ghana holds a wealth of knowledge about the local flora’s medicinal values. The herbal clinic will provide a serene environment for the practice of herbal healing by local herbalists. Furthermore, an inventory of the local flora and its medicinal uses will be elaborated and used for teaching purposes. Besides herbs, spices hold an immense intrinsic medical potential. Both the President of OPC Switzerland and the Director Health of OPC Ghana have considerable practical experience in the use of spices. In addition, a more classical way of nursing will also be practiced at the centre. The combination of traditional African, as well as Eastern and Western medicine holds a great potential to make for a complete health system.
