Rene POTGIETER D.Emed (psych)
BORN: 03/12/1963 –Northern Cape, South Africa
I’m registered with regards to Ethno Medicine and Ethno Psychology –
E.P.A.S.A, Ethnomedicine Practitioners Association of South Africa, Reg no. 110601221 which involves the following:
- Traditional & Western Herbal medicine
- Nutrition – diet, vitamins and minerals
- Blood Analysis – live and dry blood
- Designing herbal remedies, capsules, creams and tinctures.
Aside from E.P.A.S.A. I’ve studied even further on blood analysis with the following:
- Derek Johnson (Naturopath)
- Okker Botha (Homeopath)
Currently my practice, Afri Zen Ethnomed,( formerly Zen Den Health, Fourways) is located at 17 North Road, Linden ext. where I practice Live and Dry blood analysis that works with nutrition and detox processes in alignment with specific products. I’ve studied modalities like Body Talk, Emotion Code, Usui Reiki and have included the Rife Quantum Resonator to aid in the overall healing. I have a passion for chronic illness that including Cancer .I work deeply to release trapped emotions that stem from childhood, Adulthood and other avenues such as previous lives, via the route of the aforementioned studies. I’m strongly inspired and influenced by psychosomatic disorders, Epigenics and the works of Bruce Lipton, Candice Pert and Louise L. Hay.
As a result of my father being a diplomat I’ve traveled extensively as a child and was primary schooled accordingly in places such as London, France, Switzerland and Spain. After he graduated from Pretoria Boys High School, he attended the Pretoria Film School for four years. Thereafter he worked for Film and Television for twenty one years on documentaries, corporate, drama, jazz concerts and sports as director and eventually settled into post production as an editor and finally as a sound engineer. In 2002 my son, aged 14 months, was hospitalized twice in a space of a month for Bronco-pneumonia. After the second visitation and no visible improvements the Doctors then suggested I take my son to a Homeopath as they no longer can help him. Within a week my son was back on his feet and in 2006, aged 42, I was a first year homeopathic student at the University of Johannesburg! Life’s lessons and circumstances lead me to the Traditional Collage of Medicine and Ethnomedicine. I haven’t looked back since and passionate about healing!
