With the ongoing civil war in Southern Cameroons, many people are unable to go to hospitals due to lack of money. But, there are natural herbs  in our villages that can be used to cure certain diseases. This week on Amba Farmers Voice, we shall be talking about how IDPs, mothers, fathers, brothers and sisters in G1, Ghana and GZ can start using some of these plants in their villages.    

Our special guest to help us learn how to make our own medicines with herbs is Dr. Roger Gietzen, a Neurologist at McLaren Northern Michigan, Petoskey, MI. He graduated from Wayne State University, College of Medicine, Detroit, MI with a medical degree and completed his residency in Neurology at the University of Utah, Salt Lake City.

Dr. Gietzen has over 15 years’ experience as a Neurologist and has also worked as a professor with Partners in Health at the University Hospital Mirebalais in Haiti where he trained local Haitian doctors to become neurologists.  He is a strong advocate for holistic medicine and offers mind body medicine counseling for those people who want to pursue resolution of their ailments in a natural manner. He has done research on the wonders of the pawpaw plant, and will be talking on how to use it to cure certain ailments. 

Dr. Gietzen is also involved in humanitarian work in Haiti through a nonprofit called Global Freedom Project, where he focuses on helping the poor and needy achieve economic independence. Roger’s life is devoted to God union and his spiritual path gives inspiration to all aspects of his life, but especially to his humanitarian projects and his holistic health services.  Roger is also proud to be a father.
