Herbs & Products Common Questions

Where do your herbal remedies come from?

Most of our remedies come from the West African countries of Burkina Faso, Benin, Côte d’ivoire, Ghana and Togo. Plant products are grown in the indigenous agricultural traditions of Meritah (Africa), without the use of chemicals and pesticides and are rotated regularly to preserve soil content. Many of the herbs are very rare in the modern world (most of the remedies we have don't even have Latin names) and are harvested in the deep bush of the aforementioned Sub Saharan regions of Western Meritah. Those who harvest and prepare the remedies are respected indigenous healers who understand our philosophy and policies, and are compensated fairly for their contributions.  

Are herbal remedies safe?

Herbal remedies are safe if used properly, but can also be harmful if used improperly. It is important to follow the directions provided by ANH. Do not hesitate to contact us with any questions or if you need additional support. We are just a phone call away! The remedies purchased from our ANH site are safe for a person to take on their own. However, we have dozens of other remedies for a variety of illnesses that can only be administered after having a consultation with one of our healers. Please contact 737-201-1213 for more details.

Why don’t I recognize the names of these herbs?

Many of the herbs are considered “rare” in the modern world and simply do not have Latin or other European names. 

Why should I use this instead of a pharmaceutical drug?

These remedies are made with natural plants, bark, and roots that result in successful cleansing of the aforementioned organs and system. These are remedies that have been kept and passed down for generations and do not include synthetic copies of "an active ingredient" as most pharmaceuticals are known to include. Knowledge of the body and how it works are key to the success of the herbal remedies, which are kept intact for us to use today.

How do I know if the remedies are working?

We encourage people to measure their blood pressure and cholesterol levels before taking Ninika/Souley and then after completing their dose or several doses. Please also keep in mind that it's encouraged to change your diet by eliminating salty, sugary and high fat foods. It will be more difficult to clean the blood if one continues to add toxins to it. To check if the digestive cleanser is working one can simply observe the content coming from their bowel movements. You will be able to feel the changes in the level of pain after using the body aches salve. These remedies have been used for many, many generations throughout various regions of Africa. Since they still exist, we see that as proof of their effectiveness. Feel free to measure relevant levels in the body at a hospital or using a machine to compare how your numbers were before and after taking an ANH regimen of herbs.

Where do the proceeds go?

Proceeds from sales go towards compensating the healers that we work with in West Africa, the purchase of more herbs, and towards indigenous empowerment projects. For more information please visit our Donate page. 

Can I take my remedies with my prescribed medications?

The herbal remedies on our site are safe to take with high blood pressure medications, vitamins and other common medications. If you have been advised to take additional herbs by an ANH healer or you have further questions or concerns please call our contact number 737-201-1213 or products@anhlife.org.  

 Are there any side effects from taking these remedies?

Not generally, but some people may experience headaches or nausea from their body adjusting to the remedies, but there are no side-effects that damage other organs, such as many pharmaceuticals do. These remedies come naturally from the soil and are meant to re-balance the body.

Are there  herbs  in my region that are like these herbs?

There are several types of blood, liver, kidney and digestive cleansers that you can find locally, but Ankhkasta is currently the only organization that supplies Ninika, Souley, and most other herbs on our site. There are herbal supplements that claim to have the same effects but do not have the history of traditional healing that Ankhkasta herbs have, so the potency is different. Not only are the herbs Ankhkasta provide rare and exclusive, but the non-material elements, prayers and training knowledge that goes into preparing the herbs is an additional factor. 

Is there a diet I should follow while taking these herbs?

If you are taking an herb to prevent or solve an issue, then you should avoid eating the foods that exacerbate that issue. For example, the Ninika, Souley and digestive cleanser remedies are meant to remove salt, sugar, oils, etc. from the bloodstream and excess/stagnant food from the digestive tract, so we recommend decreasing or avoiding salt, sugar, oils, and also a heavy meat intake. If you receive a health consultation, then your healer will provide you with a diet to follow.  

When will I see results?

The results vary from person-to-person. Depending on an individual’s situation they may need only one dose of a particular herb or may need several. It is best to consult a healer for further details.  

Are these herbs OK for people with certain ailments, or children, or pregnant women?

If you have any questions at all about your situation please call us at +1 (737)201-1213. The majority of pregnant women could take many of our herbs with no ill effects, however, because of our commitment to the preservation of life and the many factors that contribute to the stability of a pregnancy, we ask that pregnant women have a consultation first. Children will have alternate directions for these remedies.

Spiritual Services Common Questions

Why do I need a spiritual reading?

There is more to a human being than just the material aspect. A spiritual reading gives the client a glimpse into the general issues that may be unseen to the client in the non-material realm. In the spiritual reading you will be made aware of the issues and you will be given a solution. These issues could be a result of your actions in this current life, from a past one, or from an ancestor’s in the past, present or future. At the time of the reading the priest will show you the most pressing issues that your energies present at that time. These are the issues that will need to be resolved first before moving onto less pressing ones. 

How do “ceremonies” work and what should I expect?

Ceremonies can vary greatly in their components depending on the situation. Sometimes a ceremony can be as simple as pouring some water or milk on the ground and making wishes, other times a ceremony may be very elaborate utilizing many natural elements. Ceremonial elements may include herbs, fruits, nuts, animals, and many other natural elements. Those elements may be arranged, gifted, eaten and/or utilized in a variety of ways depending on an array of circumstances. No matter what the circumstance, any ceremony that may be suggested for you in a reading will have the objective of bringing harmony in your life. 

 In terms of what to expect, it entirely depends on the situation. If a door is opened which was closed, then it is for you to walk through it. If it is a problem which was avoided, then the problem will not manifest completely. If it is to fix a spiritual deficit in your Ancestral line or in your own life, sometimes the deficit is monumental, and it will take time to reach a point of noticeable stability; if the deficit is not great, you will notice a stability in your energies which must be maintained. Ceremonies always come with certain principles and advice to follow. If you receive a ceremony to clean your spirit, then you must maintain that cleanliness in your life to benefit from the ceremony. If you dirty yourself again directly after the ceremony, it will not be possible to benefit from it; it must come with some maintenance. 

What are good questions to ask the priest? 

No matter how complex your concerns may be, try to spend time thinking about the root of those issues. Try to reduce your concerns to their lowest common denominator. Meaning, think about the real roots of the issue prior to the reading, then formulate them into essential questions. Most of the time when we have problems, they can be emotionally troublesome. These emotional reactions can cloud the logic which we need to arrive at a thoughtful solution. Instead of thinking about how much money you want to make, think about what you may need to properly sustain yourself. Instead of thinking about how beautiful you would like your husband or wife to be, think about what you need to attract a person that will be good for your evolution.

Why don't I need to be in person?

The priest is reading the Earth's Energy to check on the life of the client. The priest is on the earth, and the client is on the earth. An experienced priest will know how to triangulate their location (where the reading is occurring) with the earth they are on, and with the identity of the client wherever they happen to be. It is normal for experienced priests to check on the lives and wellbeing of their family remotely even if they are not in the same village.  

How long does the reading last?

Readings typically last 45 minutes to an hour. 

If I already had a reading then do I need another one?

Once your ceremonies from the initial reading are completed, you may schedule follow-up readings anywhere from 3 months to a year after your first one, or when you have additional questions that arise. 

Can you tell me more about "ceremonies"?

Ceremonies are the traditional African solutions given to the client to help assist in the resolution of any issues they may be facing. These ceremonies are what traditional African priests have used for generations to help bring harmony to the lives of their family and people in their own community. Some ceremonies may focus on nourishing the spirits of your ancestors and reinforcing your own energetic stability. Sometimes ceremonies may help remove negative energies or blockages.You should know that each reading will come with ceremonies or spiritual works. Some ceremonies will be performed by indigenous healers in Africa using various elements in nature and some ceremonies may be recommended which you do on your own. All of these will be explained to you in your reading. The ceremonies in Africa will come with additional costs for materials and services of the traditional priests, and will be priced for you on the reading summary that you receive after the reading. You may call our customer service number 737-201-1213 to pay for ceremonies or ask any additional questions you have regarding your reading. 

What’s the difference between a priest and a psychic? 

From the African perspective amongst the professional indigenous community, there is a very high standard and expectation to be considered a "priest". Respected African priests come from families which specialize, generation after generation, in being an intermediary between the seen and unseen worlds. This includes being prepared morally, spiritually, and physically from a young age through ceremonies, education, initiation and apprenticeship to be able to serve people properly. Psychics may be born with the same predispositions that a priest is born with, but may not have had the training and preparation which the indigenous traditions provide their young priests. Often they may be able to reveal the same problem, but will not be able to assess the depth, or provide the proper context within which a proper solution may be assessed.

Do I need to prepare to take notes?

No. The reading will be transcribed for you, and a reading summary will be provided to you via email after the reading.

If I pay for a ceremony how long does it take to complete?

You may pay for any ceremonies through our customer service number: 737-201-1213. The ceremonies may take place anytime from one week to several weeks after payment depending on the availability and workload of our team in Africa. Ankhkasta Natural Healing consistently serves many people and sometimes processing time may take a bit longer than normal. If any ceremonies are very pressing or time sensitive, we will be able to fast-track them in most cases. You will be informed of the completion of your ceremony either through email or a phone call. 

What are the prices of ceremonies?

You may have ceremonies recommended for you to do yourself, which cost nothing; only effort on your part. Other ceremonies which require our team in Africa will be priced, the vast majority of which range from $75 to about $500. In certain exceptional cases the price may be higher. The pricing of ceremonies are based on the recommendations from the Earth Energy Reading. These prices include the cost of labor from the team and the materials needed. Your services help provide a fair living wage to our team of healers, priests, apprentices, while also helping to build the infrastructure to preserve indigenous communities. 

Health Services Common Questions

What is the difference between the two services?

A consultation is an in person physical examination which assesses your physical and erergetic well being and comes with recommendations and take away action items. A coaching session can be done virtually and provides health and wellness advice as a coaching guide. 

How Do Health Consultations Work?

Holistic health consultations are non-invasive, but do require in-person contact with the healer. Healers will assess the bodily systems using traditional techniques, which include physical touch. They may offer lifestyle advice and education about traditional perspectives on health, as well as herbs and teas which would be used to restore balance in a traditional African setting. It is important to understand that, ultimately, you are the one who has the ability to heal yourself through a change in your behavior. Ankhkasta Natural Healing’s health consultations are educational and informative about your health from a traditional African perspective. They are not to be misconstrued as diagnosis, medical treatment, or medical advice and they are not meant to replace the advice or treatment of your current medical practitioner. 

What do I expect for a health consultation?

The training to become a healer is very challenging and very technical. A healer, according to indigenous African tradition, is responsible for the health of his or her community and therefore must be properly trained to obtain a superior level of knowledge about the body, the spirit, and quality of life. In indigenous societies, it is understood that the human being doesn’t begin or end with the physical body. All of the healing techniques, advice and herbal recipes are based on that multi-dimensional understanding of nature. Your trained healer will use this perspective to craft a unique plan for your healing which includes dietary and lifestyle changes and recommendations for herbal products.

How long do consultations and coaching last

They range from 45 minutes to an hour.

Do I need to be in person for health coaching?

No, you can schedule a virtual coaching session where an Ankhkasta representative will give you health and wellness recommendations based on indigenous wisdom.

How Does Health Coaching Work?

Health coaching sessions are virtual appointments with an Ankhkasta representative who will give you health and wellness recommendations based on indigenous wisdom.

What is the pricing for health coaching?
