Pastoral Physicien* Edenic Oath

I, Kohen Shalomim Y. Halahawi, Spiritual leader, Integrative Naturopathic  & Pastoral Physicien and Healer,  SWEAR by the Sovereign Eternal Creator of the Heavens and Earth, and by the Messenger of Healing, Rapha’El,  the appointed heavenly physicien, by health & Edenic Law, the original Way of the Eternal Creator, that according to my ability and judgment, I will keep this Oath and this stipulation-- to reckon him who taught me this Art equally dear to me as my parents, to share my substance with him, and relieve his necessities if required; to look upon his offspring in the same footing as my own brothers, and to teach them this art, if they shall wish to learn it, and that by precept, lecture, and every other mode of instruction, I will impart a knowledge of the Art to my own sons, and those of my teachers, and to disciples bound by a stipulation and oath according to the Edenic law , the law of natural medicine, but to none others. I will follow that system of regimen which, according to my ability and judgment, I consider for the benefit of my patients, and abstain from whatever is deleterious and mischievous. I will give no deadly, unnatural or allopathic medicine to any one if asked, nor suggest any such counsel; and in like manner I will not give to a woman a pessary to produce abortion. With purity and with holiness I will pass my life and practice my Art as a prophetic Healing Ministry. I will not cut persons laboring under the stone, but will leave this to be done by men who are practitioners of this work. Into whatever houses I enter, I will go into them for the benefit of the sick, and will abstain from every voluntary act of mischief and corruption; and, further, from the seduction of females or males, of freemen and slaves. Whatever, in connection with my professional service, or not in connection with it, I see or hear, in the life of men, which ought not to be spoken of abroad, I will not divulge, as reckoning that all such should be kept secret. While I continue to keep this Oath unviolated, may it be granted to me, by Yahwah Elohim, to enjoy life and the practice of the art and Prophetic Ministry, respected by all men, in all times. But should I trespass and violate this Oath, may the reverse be my lot.

O Elah, Thou has formed the body of man with infinite goodness; Thou has united in him innumerable forces incessantly at work like so many instruments so as to preserve in its entirety this beautiful house containing his immortal soul, and these forces act with all the order, concord, and harmony imaginable. But if weakness or violent passion disturb this harmony, these forces act against one another and the body returns to the dust whence it came. Thou sendest then to man Thy messengers, the diseases which announce the approach of danger, and bid him prepare to overcome them. The Eternal Providence has appointed me to, watch over the life and health of Thy creatures. May the love of my art actuate me at all times, may neither avarice, or miserliness, nor the thirst for glory or a great reputation engage my mind; for, enemies of truth and philanthropy, they could easily deceive me and make me forgetful of my lofty aim of doing good to Thy children. Endow me with strength of heart and mind, so that both may be ready to serve the rich and the poor, the good and the wicked, friend and enemy, and that I may never see in the patient anything else but a fellow creature in pain.

If physiciens more learned than I wish to counsel me, inspire me with confidence in and obedience toward the recognition of them, for the study of the science is great. It is not given to one alone to see all that others see. May I be moderate in everything except in the knowledge of this science; so far as it is concerned, may I be insatiable; grant me the strength and opportunity always to correct what I have acquired, always to extend its domain; for knowledge is boundless and the spirit of man can also extend infinitely, daily to enrich itself with new acquirements. Today he can discover his errors of yesterday, and tomorrow he may obtain new light on what he thinks himself sure of today.

Elah, Thou hast appointed me to watch over the life and death of Thy creatures: here am I ready for my vocation."

Midrash Rabbah - Genesis X:6
The son of Sira said: Elah caused drugs to spring forth from the earth; with them the physician heals the wound and the apothecary compounds his preparations.7 R. Simon said: There is not a single herb but has a constellation in heaven which strikes it and says, ‘Grow,’8


The Law of  Pastoral and Natural Medicine

1. Pastoral and Natural Medicine is of all the arts the most noble; but, owing to the ignorance of those who practice it in allopathic systems, and of those who, inconsiderately, form a judgment of them, it is at present far behind all the other arts. Their mistake appears to me to arise principally from this, that in the cities there is no punishment connected with the practice of poisonous medicine (and with it alone) except disgrace, and that does not hurt those who are familiar with it. Such persons are the figures which are introduced in tragedies, for as they have the shape, and dress, and personal appearance of an actor, but are not actors, so also physicians are many in title but very few in reality.

2. Whoever is to acquire a competent knowledge of medicine, ought to be possessed of the following advantages: a natural disposition; instruction; a favorable position for the study; early tuition; love of labor; leisure. First of all, a natural talent is required; for, when Nature leads the way to what is most excellent, instruction in the art takes place, which the student must try to appropriate to himself by reflection, becoming an early pupil in a place well adapted for instruction. He must also bring to the task a love of labor and perseverance, so that the instruction taking root may bring forth proper and abundant fruits.

3. Instruction in natural (i.e true Orthodox or original) and pastoral medicine is like the culture of the productions of the earth. For our natural disposition, is, as it were, the soil; the tenets of our teacher are, as it were, the seed; instruction in youth is like the planting of the seed in the ground at the proper season; the place where the instruction is communicated is like the food imparted to vegetables by the atmosphere; diligent study is like the cultivation of the fields; and it is time which imparts strength to all things and brings them to maturity.

4. Having brought all these requisites to the study of Natural and pastoral medicine, and having acquired a true knowledge of it, we shall thus, in traveling through the cities, be esteemed (true) physicians and rophi'im, not only in name but in reality. But inexperience or the lack therefo is a bad treasure, and a bad fund to those who possess it, whether in opinion or reality, being devoid of self-reliance and contentedness, and the nurse both of timidity and audacity. For timidity betrays a want of powers, and audacity a lack of skill. They are, indeed, two things, knowledge and opinion, of which the one makes its possessor really to know, the other to be ignorant.

5. Those things which are sacred, are to be imparted only to sacred persons; and it is not lawful to impart them to the profane until they have been initiated into the mysteries of the science & of the faith.

6. The art of healing is a sacred calling, which is to be practiced with selfless devotion. We are at all times to be concerned with the welfare of all who need our care, treating Jew and non-Jew, rich and poor, nobleman and peasant alike.

"A doctor who prescribes an identical treatment for an identical illness in two individuals and expects an identical development may be properly classified as a social menace."   Lin Yutang

"It is more important to know what sort of person has a disease than to know what sort of disease a person has."-- Hippocrates   

" A Naturopathic Physician who wants to prescribe allopathic drugs is no longer a Naturopath, but a Drug Dealer, he is a threat and enemy to the wellbeing of humanity.." Shalomim HaLahawi


Judaic Origins of Healing, Natural Medicine Sciences & All Sciences, including Medical and Mental Health Sciences come from Yahwah Elah!!


Jubilees(Book of Moses) 10:4-13, "But do Thou bless me and my sons, that we may increase and multiply and replenish the earth. 5 And Thou knowest how Thy Watchers, the fathers of these spirits, acted in my day: and as for these spirits which are living, imprison them and hold them fast in the place of condemnation, and let them not bring destruction on the sons of thy servant, my Elahin; for these are malignant, and created in order to destroy. 6 And let them not rule over the spirits of the living; for Thou alone canst exercise dominion over them. And let them not have power over the sons of the righteous from henceforth and for evermore.’ 7 And Yahwah our Elahenu bade us to bind all. 8 And the chief of the spirits, Mastêmâ, came and said: ‘Yahwah, Creator, let some of them remain before me, and let them hearken to my voice, and do all that I shall say unto them; for if some of them are not left to me, I shall not be able to execute the power of my will on the sons of men; for these are for corruption and leading astray before my judgment, for great is the wickedness of the sons of men.’ 9 And He said: ‘Let the tenth part of them remain before him, and let nine parts descend into the place of condemnation.’ 10 And one of us He commanded that we should teach Noah all  sciences of their medicines; for He knew that they would not walk in uprightness, nor strive in righteousness. 11 And we did according to all His words: all the malignant evil ones we bound in the place of condemnation and a tenth part of them we left that they might be subject before Satan on the earth. 12 And we explained to Noah all the medicines of their diseases, together with their seductions, how he might heal them with herbs of the earth. 13 And Noah wrote down all things in a book as we instructed him concerning every kind of medicine. Thus the evil spirits were precluded from (hurting) the sons of Noah.
Charles, Robert Henry (Hrsg.): Pseudepigrapha of the Old Testament. Bellingham, WA :

Wisdom of Solomon 7:15-20-"May Elahin grant me to speak as he would wish and conceive thoughts worthy of the gifts I have received, since he is both guide to Wisdom and director of sages; for we are in his hand, yes, ourselves and our sayings, and all intellectual and all practical knowledge. He it was who gave me sure knowledge of what exists, to understand the structure of the world and the action of the elements, the beginning, end and middle of the times, the alternation of the solstices and the succession of the seasons, the cycles of the year and the position of the stars, the natures of animals and the instincts of wild beasts, the powers of spirits and human mental processes, the varieties of plants and the medical properties of roots. And now I understand everything, hidden or visible, for Wisdom, the designer of all things, has instructed me".

Ezekiel 47:12-“And by the bank of the stream, on both sides, grow all kinds of trees used for food, whose leaves do not wither and fruit do not fail. They bear fruit every month, because their water flows from the set-apart place. And their fruit shall be for food, and their leaves for Medicine & Healing.”

Principles of Integrative Pastoral Medicine(Eastern Talmudic Medicine) as Developed by Dr. Shalomim Y HaLahawi, Rophe (Hebrew Physician)

Sanhedrion 17B- Moreover, it has been taught: A scholar should not reside in a city where the following ten things are not found: A court of justice that imposes flagellation and decrees penalties; a charity fund23 collected by two and distributed by three;24 a Synagogue; public baths; a convenience; a circumciser; a surgeon & Physicien, a notary;25 a slaughterer26 and a school-master.27 R. Akiba is quoted [as including] also several kinds of fruit [in the list], because these are beneficial28 to the eyesight.

Integrative Pastoral Medicine is a faith based & scientific evidence based  natural approach to health and healing that recognizes the integrity of the whole person, both physically, mentally and spiritually.

Integrative Pastoral Medicine represents the "Spiritual, physical & biochemical" tradition of medicine rooted in the Eastern concepts and practices integrated with Western Medical Science & Technology.  It treats health imbalance & disease through the stimulation, increase, and support of the person's inherent healing capacity.  These treatments are chosen to work with the patient's Spiritual, physical and biochemical force, respecting the natural healing processes of nature.

The practice of Integrative Pastoral Medicine includes the following underlying principles of healing.  These are based on the observation of health, spirituality and disease using modern & advance skilled techniques.  This observation process involves the use of modern scientific methodologies and language.


The following principles make Integrative Pastoral Medicine aka Eastern Talmudic Medicine different from all other medical approaches:


  • First do no harm:

Illness is the result of the violation of the natural laws that governs human physiology & the divine laws of the Creator that governs the inseparable Spirit-Soul and manifests as a purposeful process of the organism. Symptoms are the material evidence of an underlying invasion & altering of the natural processes which are necessary for the optimal functions of a healthy Edenic human being. The process of healing includes science of life rooted in Herbal medicine, Edenic lifestyle and the generation of symptoms which are, in fact, an expression of the life force attempting to heal itself.  Therapeutic actions should be complementary to and synergistic with this healing process.  The pastoral medicine practitioner and physician's actions can support or antagonize the actions of the Raphah Torah Aden-- the healing power of Edenic Law.  Therefore, methods designed to suppress symptoms without removing the underlying causes & chemical drugs that are not compatible with the natural biophysical aspect of the human biochemistry are considered harmful and to be avoided or minimized. Emergency Medicine & Surgery are recognized as essential preserving human life and are thus respected by the Integrative Pastoral Medicine Profession.

  • The healing power of the Eternal Creator through Edenic Law aka nature:
    Vis Rapha Aden

The body & Spirit-Soul, when connected to the Eternal Creators mind, has an inherent ability to establish, maintain, and restore health.  The healing process is ordered and intelligent; Edenic Law (nature) heals through the response of the Spirit( life force) of a person.  The Pastoral Medicine physician's role is to facilitate this process, to identify and remove obstacles to health and recovery, and to establish or restore a healthy internal and external environment. The Plants & naturally occuring substances of the earth, which are the basis of the evolution & advancement of the evidence based sciences of various systems of healing arts such as Homo-toxicology, Spagyric Homeopathic Medicine(based upon the science of Alchemy which is given unto mankind by the Messengers of Elah as both religious and secular history teaches), Biochemic Medicines & all systems of Herbal & Natural Medicine(Ayurvedic, Unani, Siddha, Islamic, Greek, Mayan, Chinese, Talmudic & Indigenous medicines), when standardized according to therapuetic principles & practiced by Licensed Pastoral Medical & Healing Physicians,  is the established Ordained method of "Divine healing" that the Eternal Creator has given unto mankind for the purposes of healing, restoration, prevention & cure of the Body & Mind-Spirit. The science of Life & nature is a well established evolution of the knowledge of the usage of Natural therapies over the past 4-6000 years, as evidence in Sacred Cultures as the Hindi, Buddhist & Ancient Jewish culture(i.e Talmudic Medicine). Science is a creation of the Eternal Creator & is used to establish the truth & facts of the effectiveness of Natural Medicine and to train those individuals called to be Physicians(Physiciens*) & Doctors(aka Teachers) to carry out the Healing ministry for the wellbeing and advancement of all mankind. This is true Divine and Spiritual Healing, for the Spirit of Elah is within every Plant, which gives the Eternal Command that gives us Healing.

  • Identify and treat the cause:

Illness does not occur without cause. All illness is the result of the violation of the Edenic laws (the Sovereign Laws of the Eternal Creator which governs all natural phenomena) which are prejudice in regards to human origins, environment, biochemistry and genetic heritage. Underlying causes of disease must be discovered and removed or treated before a person can recover completely from illness.  Symptoms express the body's attempt to heal & also to give material evidence to a underlying violation of the natural process which are necessary for the optimal functions of the human health, but are not the cause of disease.  Symptoms, therefore, should not be suppressed by treatment.  Causes may occur on many levels including physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual.  The pastoral medicine physician must evaluate fundamental underlying causes on all levels, directing treatment at root causes rather than at symptomatic expression.

  • Heal the whole person:

Health and disease are conditions of the whole organism, a whole involving the complex interaction of many factors.  The pastoral medicine physician must treat the whole person by taking these factors into account.  The harmonious functioning of physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, cultural & genetic aspects are essential to recovery from and prevention of disease and imbalance.  This requires a comprehensive approach to assessment, discernment, diagnosis and treatment. The understanding of the genetic & DNA origins of an individual, especially displaced individuals should play a major role in the restoration process of healing, as to heal the mind is to prepare the body and soul for healing & balancing. An Individuals lack of connection to and lack of knowledge of their individual self as per his own cultural & spiritual roots is linked to the increased incidence of disease & imbalance in certain populations(i.e. African American).

Genetic & Cultural Displacement Disease® The Foundation of Integrative Pastoral Medicine(Eastern Talmudic Medicine):

The Foundation of Eastern Talmudic Medicine  in advancing the Ancient Concept & Science is the Theory of "GCDD". This is when a person or groups of persons experience increased incidents of Disease, including mental, physical, educational spiritual & social degeneration at higher rates than other ethnic groups even though they may be exposed to the same opportunities, same healthcare systems & same complex social situations. Yet culture, education, healthcare & social behavior is ethnic & genetic specific & is prejudiced by the Law of Nature in regards to various racial & ethnic groups &  due to cultural displacement & alienation from the environment that is conducive of ones genetic makeup & proper growth & development, certain individuals or group of individuals experience  disease complex syndromes in a more destructive higher percentage than those individuals or groups of individuals who are are not culturally, spiritually or environmentally displaced(.i.e this also applies to plants & their genetic makeup to only grow in certain environments, soils & atmospheres that are neccessary for their optimal growth and development & that to uproot & displace a plant such as one designed to grow in the amazon & re-plant it in an environment that does not foster it genetic makesup, like in Europe or the Ant-artica will either significantly reduce the quality of growth and development & also weaken the genetic makeup of any future seeds or cause the plant to die altogether & that if a plant is uprooted & never planted again in proper soil, it simply starts the process of death at the moment of uprooting or displacement & ultimately dies because it has nowhere to take root to survive). That neither western medicine nor eastern medicine alone can stop the incidence of this disease complex and degeneration without incorporating and taking into consideration the DNA & Genetic  & Biochemistry Makeup of individuals while also treating them holistically using Integrative Medicine consisting of Western Diagnosis, Eastern Medicine Science, Naturopathic Psychiatry, Genetic Medicine & life coaching therapy..

Biblical Right to practice as a Pastoral Medicine Physician & the scope of practice as a Spiritual Physician in the Context of Herbal and Natural Healthcare which is rooted in Edenic Law & the origins of the practice of Healing as a Art, Science and Ministry

The Ancient Jewish Scriptures on The Pastoral Medicine Physician

Sirach 38:1-15  Honour the physician for the need thou hast of him: for the most High hath created his profession.  (2)  For all healing is from Elah, and he shall receive gifts of the king.  (3)  The skill/knowledge of the physician makes him esteemed and distinguished, and in the sight of great men he shall be praised.  (4)  The most High hath created herbal medicines out of the earth, and a wise man will not abhor/neglect them.  (5)  Was not bitter water made sweet by the twig?  (6)  The virtue of these things is come to the knowledge of men, and the most High hath given knowledge to men, that he may be honoured in his wonders.  (7)  By these he shall cure and shall allay their pains, and of these the druggist prepares his medicines, and shall make up ointments of health, and of his works there shall be no end.  (8)  For the peace of Elah is over all the face of the earth.  (9)  My son, in thy sickness neglect not thyself, but pray to Yahwah, and he shall heal thee.  (10)  Turn away from sin and order thy hands aright, and cleanse thy heart from all offence.  (11)  Give a sweet savour, and a memorial of fine flour, and make a fat offering, and then give place to the physician, lest he leave, for you need him too.  (12)  For Yahwah created him: and let him not depart from thee, for his works are necessary.  (13)  For there is a time when thou must fall into their hands:  (14)  And they shall beseech  Yahwah, that his diagnosis may be correct  so that what they give for treatment and remedy will bring about a cure.  (15)  He who is a sinner towards his Maker, will be defiant towards the physician.


According to this Scripture Pastoral Medicine Doctors is a Physician(rophe healer), whose office is from Yahwah. He is skilled and knowlegeable in the Healing Art and Ministry. He is able to "cure and allay pain" & he prepares or provides medicies and ointment based on Herbal Medicines that come from the Earth(Herbalism/Naturopathic). He is also able to give diagnosis & treatment based on his skill in the Natural Healing Arts. and Being Defiant towards the Natural Physician is associated with being a Sinner.


It is a religious and Biblical right of those who are adequately trained to be Pastoral Medicine Physicians and healers and who are licensed under Ecclesiastical Jursidiction to carry out the duties according to the definition given unto them by the sacred scriptures. Federal, State and Local Law has no right to regulate the practices and tenets of ones religion in regards to promoting and ensuring optimal Health. Their job is to ensure the safety of the public.

Proper protocols of adhering to biblical medicine poses little to no threat to the public when high skilled practitioners are trained and commissioned and will in fact promote better and more quality health and wellness to the public. No one is Superior to Yahwahs Law and his mandate for Healing through Natural Means. That which comes from Yahwah is automatically superior than that which comes from the minds of Man, when man rejects that which comes from Yahwah!! This is why when you compare Pastoral Medicine and Natural Healing Arts Practices against  the Way of Man through Conventional Scientific Western Medicine, it is undeniable that far more people die each year in the hundreds of thousands under Conventional Medicine and their Physicians than those who seek Pastoral or Natural Medicine practitioners and their Physicians and healers!!

True Evidence and faith based trained Pastoral Medicine Doctors/Physicians/Physiciens have comparable, but no less quality, in the education, training, knowledge and clinical skills as Conventional trained Doctors and Western Naturopathic Trained Physicians.

  • Prevention(Pastoral Public Health & Community Medicine):
    Prevention is the best cure

The ultimate goal of any health care system, either faith based or secular, should be prevention of disease & imbalance.  This is accomplished through education and promotion of  Edenic lifestyle  and habits that create good health & mental balance.  The pastoral medicine physician learns to assess risk factors and to sharpen their deductive reasoning, and understand the patient's circumstances.  Appropriate interventions are then sought to avoid further harm or risk to the patient/client/student.  Building faith based health works better and more surely than fighting disease. Such ancient works as the Book of Leviticus gives us the foundations of Public Health & Community Medicine by ensuring that any plague, contagious disease or imbalance is not spread throughout the entire population through methods of Quarentine. This method is still used today by government and health departments to prevent further spread or infections of disease. Such Contagious and life threatening Disease such as H1N1(Swine Flu) or MRSA, warrants a patient to be quarentined as they go through clinical phase of treatment to ensure thy have life. The Hebrew Word Kosher/Kasher, signifies "to be fit', whether it be health, food or state of being. It is usually associated with distinguishing clean from unclean. Hebrew Health laws warrents various unclean matters to be seperated during the entire period of ones uncleanliness or being "unfit" to live amongst the population. Even with sexual and reproductive laws, the purpose is to prevent the manifestation of disease(Leviticus chapter 13-15. Such laws of the Niddah(or menstrual cycle) is meant to uphold the Natural cycles a woman goes through which is 7 days and to prevent her from producing self caused disease by engaging in certain activities during her Niddah(i.e. Gentile Women have a higher HPV/Cervical Dysplasia risk than practicing Jewish Women due to the latter adhering to Public Health and Social Medicine Laws of the Torah in Society in which she lives.

The Torah based dietary included a two fold understanding. In Genesis the original plan and purpose of human creation was for them to be vegetarians, which ultimatly is the healthiest form of diet for optimal health even today as Medical Science has taught(Gen 1:29-30). Later the Author of Leviticus addressing those who choose to eat flesh, which scientifically all flesh is associated with eventual death and disease, but the Kosher Laws of Leviticus served to reduce the chance of aquiring detrimental bacteria or other imbalances associated with eating scavengers. Kosher foods have become soo relevant in modern society that almost all foods are reviewed and labeled with a Kosher symbol when they meet the criteria for clean foods. The emphasis is that diet plays a major role in the prevention disease and maintenance of health.

 If we incorporated such Public Health prevention through quarentine and Alternative healthcare treatments with STDs & AIDs, by seperating/quarentining those who are "un-kosher" and pose a legitimate real threat to society (as evidence of the American Culture where STD infections are continuing to rise despite all of the preventative measures many Medical and Health Organization have taken to prevent such), we would have very few if any such STDs & other contagious imbalances threatening our communities. Integrative Pastoral Medicine is a powerful evidence based tool that can be used for such purposes. This is especially true of the African American Population.

                        Scopes of Integrative Pastoral Medicine Practice

Integrative Pastoral Medicine philosophy serves as the basis for Faith based Natural health, conventional western diagnosis and Eastern Medicine practice.  The current scope of Pastoral Medicine practice includes the same practices as Naturopathic Medicine & Oriental Medicine, but is not limited to:

  • Clinical Nutrition & Orthomolecular Medicine

A cornerstone of Integrative Pastoral Medicine practice is that the Edenic Lifestyle and the Edenic Diet is the best medicine.  Many medical conditions can be treated more effectively with Kosher Vegetarian foods, clinically proven herbal medicines and nutritional supplements created according to the biochemisty of people using cGMP standards, than by other means, with fewer complications and side effects.  Many pharmaceuticals can be eliminated with knowledge of nutritional & Eastern Medicine Herbal sciences.  Pastoral Medicine physicians use the Edenic Lifestyle consisting of Kosher vegetarian Edenic dietetics, natural hygiene(Public Health), short term fasting, homo-toxicology and nutritional supplementation in their practice.  These methods are considered Original Medicine or Eastern Talmudic Medicine that derives from the inherent power of the Eternal Creator and are parallel & in many cases more advanced to western mainstream medicine.


  • Botanical Medicine aka Torah based Medicine(Eastern Talmudic Medicine)

The Eternal Creator gave unto Noah in the Book of Jubilees the Science of Herbal Medicine and how to treat all illness, imbalance and disease, when we use the knowledge wisely in accord to his Holy Torah. Yahwahs divinity is within all herbs, thus giving them their healing properties. True divine healing is thus rooted in herbal therapy.  This is why many plant substances are powerful medicines. The Essence of plants are even used in Psychiatric treatment via Bach Flower Remedies. Whereas Chemical/Drug based medicine is of human origins and designed to imitate the Original healing properties of Herbal medicine which is of divine and natural origins. Just as Satan seeks to imitate the Light, so has western chemical drugs tried to imitate the original, but to no avail.  A single chemically derived drug may address a single problem, yet create a whole host of other problems, because it is not compatible with the human physiology. This Is why the body responds with various symptoms, even fatal at times, when such medicines are taken. However, the Eternal Creators Divinely implanted Natural botanical medicines are able to address a variety of problems simultaneously when used under the supervision of a well trained Rophe'im(Healer).  Their organic nature & divine origins makes botanicals compatible with the body's own chemistry, because the Eternal Creator created the human body and created the Herbal plants to be consumed for the benefit of the human body when necessary for the purposes of maintaining balance and providing healing;  hence, they can be gently effective with fewer toxic side effects, when properly extracted, standardized and administered by one who is anointed, trained and skilled in such Pastoral Medicine Professions. 


  • Edenic or Hebrew Midwifery & Maternity Care

Pastoral Medicine physicians who are able to take up additional skills in Midwifery, maternity care and Natural Childbirth are able to provide natural childbirth care in an out-of-hospital setting, or in a Natural Child Birth Center.  They offer prenatal, postnatal & pediatric care using modern diagnostic techniques.  The Natural approach strengthens healthy body functions so that complications associated with pregnancy can be prevented or minimized & ensures the optimal growth and development of the infant. Many practitioners may provide Maternity care and Naturopathic Pastoral Pediatrics but not Midwifery or Birthing options and may work with other qualified healthcare professionals.

  • Spagyric Homeopathic Medicine

Homeopathic medicine is based on the principle of "like cures like."  It works on a subtle yet powerful electromagnetic level, gently acting to strengthen the body's healing and immune response.  Because these are both effective and very safe, pastoral medicine physicians share a respect for this system of medicine with practitioners of many other healing arts. Spagyric Homeopathy is also a central part of our comprehensive training for these reasons. Spagyric Homeopathic Medicine are a more advanced form of Homeopathic Medicine. This also include Homotoxicology, both of which are based on principles that are different from traditional homeopathy. Spagyrism represents a form of homeopathy in which both vital healing energy and active substances are extracted from medicinal plants, creating powerful mother tinctures that can be further potentized. Derived from the Greek words spao (separate) and ageiro (unite). Homotoxicology is also known as Biological Medicine. In fact Homeopathy, Spagyric Homeopathy and Homotoxilogy together represents Biological Medicine, a very potent and advanced form of Medicine. Homotoxicology serves as the bridge between Allopathic and Alternative Medicine. The Key to Spagyrics and Homotoxicology is the removal of toxins from the body and purification of the Lymphatic system to ensure Toxins are released from the body.

  • Physical Medicine-Sacred Laying on of Hands

Integrative Pastoral medicine has its own methods of therapeutic manipulation of muscles, bones, and the spine.  Our pastoral medicine doctors and physicians also use ultrasound, diathermy, exercise, massage, water, heat and cold, air, and gentle electrical pulses to treat acute or chronic physical injury.  Many recent advances in Sports Medicine and exercise physiology are essentially adaptations of herbal and homeopathic materials into the modern arena(Massage, Naprapathy, Chiropractic, Physiology, Osteopathy, Asian Body Work).

  • Oriental Medicine & Eastern Medicine

Oriental medicine is a complementary philosophy of natural healing brought to the medical community, largely through naturopathic medicine.  Asiatic and Oriental systems offer an important understanding of the unity of the body and mind, which add to those of the West.  Unification between philosophy and practice in the East and West offers health benefits for all of our cultures.  Chinese Medicine, Ayurveda, Unani, Siddha, Islamic Medicine, Hebrew Medicine(aka pastoral medicine or Eastern Talmudic Medicine), Mayan Medicine, Tropical Medicine etc,  provide ancient understandings and methods of treatment.  These promise to help harmonize the imbalances present in disease conditions and restore the dynamic balance of health.

  • Pastoral Psychological Medicine/Naturopathic(Oriental Medicine, Homeopathic) Psychiatry

Mental attitudes and emotional states may influence, or even cause, physical illness.  Pastoral Counseling can be essential for marriage, relationship, family & bereavement counseling & spiritual guidance; pastoral Naturopathic(Ayurvedic, Chinese, Homeopathic or Integrative) psychiatry can be utilized to address mental & emotional imbalance at the clinical level and incorporating Health Psychology, nutritional balancing, stress management, biofeedback, health or life coaching and other therapies are used to help patients heal on levels other than only the physical. See "Genetic & Cultural Displacement Disease"

  • Minor Surgery & humanitarian work

As general practitioners, pastoral medicine physicians who are trained and who do rural medicine and missionary medicine may perform minor surgery, including repair of superficial wounds, removal of foreign bodies, cysts, and other superficial masses.  We refer to surgeons when their skills are needed for our patient's wellbeing. Integrative Pastoral Medicine practitioners should only engage in minor surgery if they are qualified to perform such & refer such patients to in-network qualified practitioners(i.e. a licensed MD that is also a Pastoral Medical Doctor or a Surgeon) if available. It is always encouraged that Pastoral Medicine practitioners refrain from or perform less invasive therapies unless is absolutely neccessary to fulfill ones skill or function as a healthcare provider)
