Our Story

The African Traditional Healer

Many Africans believe (similarly to the Eastern culture of Tao) that life forces are present in everything. This spirit or power is the essence of every living creature, natural event or inanimate object. These life forces all have their own personalities and cosmic place. Therefore, the preservation or restoration of health is impossible without them.

Traditionally, African people have used herbal and plant products as medicines and poisons in their struggle for survival. A healer’s power is not determined by the number of medicinal plants they know, but by the ability to apply an understanding of the intricate relationship between the patient and their surrounding world. Unlike a Western trained doctor, the traditional African healer looks for the cause of the patient’s misfortune in the relation to his social, natural and spiritual environment.

More than half of the Western drugs currently available are either directly or indirectly based on natural substances. In African societies ancient remedies are even more important as they form an essential part of traditional healing.

The Mysteries of Africa

Many traditional stories are associated with the African healer. A healer in Dakar, Senegal was once able to save the lives of many yellow fever patients certain to die, while medical graduates from Paris stood by helplessly.

Once, along the banks of the River Congo, a French doctor observed African surgery being performed. His friends were treating a man with a very deep cut in the forearm. They secured a number of large black ants over the wound. As each ant bit into the flesh, the cut was drawn together. The body of each ant was removed and the wound closed as neatly as though done by a surgeon’s needle.

A Natural Alternative

inkomfe® uses a natural blend of ingredients, which creates a self-preserving system used in the inkomfe® Special Scalp Wash and Special Scalp Care. The odorless and colourless combination of ingredients are as effective as a synthetic preservative, and are patented and present in the inkomfe® Special Scalp Wash and Special Leave-On Scalp Care. This adds to the natural South African extracts that make up the inkomfe® range, and brings with it the added benefits of a natural preservative system. The natural preservative system in the inkomfe® Special Scalp Wash and Special Leave-On Scalp Care is less likely to cause an adverse reaction than a conventional preservative system.
