God's Word and Herbs

"He went to him and bandaged his wounds, pouring on oil and wine ... and took care of him." (Luke 10:34)

Like the Good Samaritan, Academy certified Christian herbalists are called to a ministry of Biblical healing and natural health care using God's word and His medicinal herbs. From anatomy and physiology (how we are "fearfully and wonderfully made") to herbs and healing, Christian herbalists must be knowledgeable and confident in practicing their vocation and ministry. The Christian Academy of Natural Health is committed to edifying the church body with sincere Christians trained in Bible based herbal medicine and natural health and healing.
