Antiguan-based herbalist, educator and public speaker Dr. Heru Shango, who has been practicing holistic health for more than 20 years, is currently in Dominica hoping to impart some knowledge to members of the public.
Dr. Shango is a Doctor of Naturopathy and specializes in herbal regimens, detoxification, weight loss, reflexology and iridology.
During his week-long visit to the island Dr. Shango will hold a number of sessions and consultations to share what he considers the simple but profound message on being whole again.
The herbalist focuses on Whole Body Therapy, a completely holistic regimen he uses to heal diseases.
He says it’s all about bringing back the principles of natural living.
“As you can see today what is going on with our people we are a dying people. In order to reverse that situation we have to focus on going back to the ways of our ancestors. Back in the day we did not suffer from the diseases that we are suffering from today,” Dr Shango said.
He is encouraging members of the Dominican public to attend consultations planned for Tuesday July 3 and Wednesday July 04 from 6:00 pm at the Fort Young Hotel.
He says in his consultations he will focus on self diagnosis.
“How you will be able to look at your skin to know what is going on with the internal organs”.
Herbalist Shango says he will also pay attention to the “hair” during his consultations.
“Hair is a map work of the entire body and so issues such as hair loss, hair going gray in a particular area of the head are situations we will seek to talk to people about. We will be putting a lot of emphasis on gray hair as well”.
The cause of unusual body itch will also get some attention.
“When a person’s body is itching it’s an indication of something is going wrong or a particular organ system is crying out, ” he explained.
The question of reflexology will also be addressed by the holistic doctor.
“There are certain reflexes in the hands that connect to certain body systems. We are going to explain to some of the folks when they feel pain in certain areas that it is indicating that a particular organ system is crying out”.
Dr.Shango will hold a similar consultation on Thursday of this week at the Portsmouth Credit union from 6:00 pm.
