The Holistic Lifecare consortium is registered in Nigeria as a corporate body under the Companies and Allied Matters Decree (1990); for holistic research, training and services in complementary healthcare, consultancy services, sales and dispensing of patent medicine, production and distribution of natural healthcare products, imports, export and general merchandise.
Holistic Lifecare applies the best combination of natural therapies, in the provision of complementary and wholesome healthcare services. Natural therapy in this context implies a non-conventional system of preventing or eliminating physical, mental, social or spiritual ailments; which may rely exclusively on past experience and observation handed down from generation to generation, verbally or in writing. It involves the use of herbs, animal matter, mineral compounds, and where applicable other relevant esoteric (paranormal) practices.
The Holistic Lifecare International, under the auspices of its registered Academy of natural Medicine, has pioneered the practical and didactical training of some of its affiliated members throughout the Federation, especially in the South-Western States of Nigeria; during which the participants learn how to make capsules, tablets, boluses, syrup, medicated soap, cream, lotion, balm, wine, etc. using herbal/traditional medicine products. The training also provides the opportunity for them to know how to preserve, label, and stock their products for exhibition and marketing in Nigeria and abroad; in line with acceptable standards prescribed by the National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC) of Nigeria.
