The Peruvian Institute for the Study of Andean Phytotherapy (IPIFA) was established in 1983 by Father Edmund Szeliga, a Salesian Polish Priest, who had lived much of his life as an educator in rural areas of Peru. In 2005 Father Edmund passed away but his legacy continues.Father Edmund was learned in Quechua, the official Andean language spoken by the Incas. This allowed him to learn directly from traditional healers without passing through a translator. It also helped him discover the etymology of plant names that many times reveal their traditional medical use.
The institute now treats local and foreign patients with medicinal plants from the Andean and Amazon regions. Certified medical doctors at IPIFA do not follow any pre-established schemes. Medicinal plants are thus supplied with an individual medical prescription and dosed in accordance with each phase of the treatment. Protocols are supported by proper diet guidelines. Over the years, the Institute has treated over 50,000 patients.
