PAX HERBAL CLINIC & RESEARCH LABORATORIES was established in 1996 as a Catholic centre for the promotion, development and proper utilization of African medicine. Some of its objectives are:
- To serve as a centre for genuine African holistic healing that blends the physical and the spiritual aspects of the human person together.
- To serve as a research centre for scientific identification, conservation, utilization and development of African medicinal plants.
- To become a model comprehensive health care centre where the western/’orthodox’ and traditional systems of healing are creatively blended together.
- To be a truly indigenous centre of healing that is based on genuine African-Christian Spirituality. To this effect, PAX HERBAL CENTRE has made unprecedented efforts in correcting the negative attitudes of African Christians towards African medicine, and promoted a sense of pride in African medicine.
- Dissemination of knowledge of the health benefits of African medicinal plants through publications, seminars and workshops.
- To build a standard laboratory for intensive research into herbal medicine for rapid development of African medicine.

Ewumonks and Herbs
The monks of Ewu have over the years have been involved in intensive research on how to use what providence has given to further the course of man as best as they could knowing fully well that the way to self discovering and good living is through nature and encountering God in nature. Good or God living happen to be a concept that has suffered destructive interpretation that many now equate the attainment of good living as acquisition, possessions, material wealth, gluttony and so on.
Many see also, that it is okay to indulge in unwholesome habits and when this lead them to disastrous health consequence, the hospitals will be good to put things right again. Many times that turns out to be just a dream that never comes true.
With this in mind, Paxherbals, through the work of Ewumonks is not just about making available natural and wholesome ways to restore health to the sick; it is also about the business of helping those who are not sick to stay healthy. Paxherbals is about everything that keeps the spirit, body, mind and soul in harmony.
So, before drugs, there is good food, and together with balance diet, there should be healthy lifestyle. This is paramount and all these for the major part can be seen in Paxherbals’ effort to make the knowledge available through its publications.
It is for these and other reason that many are turning to Paxherbals for their need to be health both in mind and body.
