Health is Wealth
It’s logically obvious the AfroAmerican, Indigenous-American, Melanated-American is Not the same as everyone else. And this is Not an unnatural circumstance. Diversity in nature IS the fabric of our universe.
My uniqueness is evident by examination…(smile) I have more melanin in my skin than some others. By accepting the differences of AfroPeople, I’m able to better understand illness such as Post-Traumatic-Slavery-Symptoms (depression to aggression to psychosis); Culture Disconnection (un-stable community); and Unconscious Existence Disorder (striving to be more American than Afro and indigenous).
My Kemetic studies provide a path with medicines for healing most of the dis-ease AfroAmerican people are experiencing today. Most of the medicine is based on the over-standing natural purpose to be true to self…even if this means being “Not the Same.” So here are a few medicines I Now prescribe to on the path of wellness:
