African Traditional Healer Dr Elliot Ndlovu
African Traditional Healer Dr Elliot Ndlovu, Inyanga (medicinal healer) and Sangoma (spiritual healer) is our inspiration and gives to us and our guests the wisdom and healing powers of Africa. In Elliot’s garden we have over 120 different species of healing plants. We also have two African therapy rooms and Elliot’s consulting room. All built and designed in Zulu style.
These photographs are taken at his place, 50 metres outside the Spa, called KwaNdlovu (Place of Ndlovu). This is in actual fact a part of our Spa but is where we do specific treatments using traditional extracts from Zulu healing plants. There are two therapy rooms at KwaNdlovu. Elliot has his consulting room in the centre. The area is surrounded by a garden of over 120 varieties of traditional healing plants.
Elliot is touching the African Potato, known in Zulu as Inkomfe. It has been called Africa’s miracle plant and has anti cancer properties as well as building immunity.
Elliot is seated between beds of Artemesia Afra and Leonotis Leonorus both of which are significant healing plants which are used in a wide variety of products and treatments at Fordoun.
