Natural Prevention-Oriented Healthcare
Indigenous peoples face severe heath challenges as a result of poverty, loss of traditional medicines, unsuitable diet, and disruption of their cultural heritage. Diabetes, coronary disease, high blood pressure are leading health risks for traditional peoples throughout the world. The approach of allopathic medicine only treats the expressed manifestations of an underlying imbalance in indigenous life.
The World Federation of Traditional Kings and its affiliates promote natural prevention-oriented healthcare that restores the connection between the individual and the field of Nature’s intelligence that structures the body and maintains the evolution of all of life throughout creation.
