The Natural Healers
Established in February 1999, the Natural Healers Association, was founded by Dr
H. Zungu, Katharine Lee Kruger and Chris Rall in Johannesburg . This national
organisation was registered as a Non Profit Organisation on 22 May 2003 by the
Department of Social Development. Katherine and Chris are now life members.
The running of the NHA was regionalised in 2004 with separate regional offices in
Gauteng, Western Cape, KZN and Eastern Cape.
We are a completely neutral Umbrella Body, formed to encourage Healers from all
cultural backgrounds and modalities, to unite and lobby collectively for
recognition and accreditation at government level.
We do not control or interfere with or dictate to anyone, nor do we encourage
anyone to resign from existing associations. We encourage healers to “speak with
one voice”, when and where appropriate and hope that this combined “driving
force” will earn respect from Government. Any complaints received about the
conduct of our members, are considered and possibly referred back to their
respective associations or to the person who sponsored them to NHA..
