Traditional Healing

Our ancestors had their own methods of healing, given to them by the Creator, using plants and other natural elements. In fact, many medicines widely used today are derived from plants.

Patients of Pokagon Health Services now can take advantage of these on their wellness journies by meeting with a traditional healer at PHS. Keith Smith of the Red Lake Band of Ojibwe has spent 25 years learning traditional medicine practices from elders, teachers and advisors.

To meet with him for the following services, please call (269) 782-4141 or 1 (888) 440-1234 to schedule your appointment.

  • Herbal and plant-based treatments
  • Health education
  • Disease prevention

  • Naming, and other culturally significant services
