Deji Alabi is a Canada based Microbiologist. He is also a Health and Wellness Coach who has helped many patients treat and manage very many ailments with lifestyle medication. He is currently helping a few Coronavirus patients manage their crisis with lifestyle medication. He recently spoke to Seye Kehinde,the Publisher of City people magazine about the Coronavirus scourge and what he has discovered. Below are excerpts.
From your findings what is Coronavirus all about and how come it can be cured with Herbs?
The Coronavirus affects the respiratory system in the host. As a matter of fact, they become inactive and probably flushed out if they get into the stomach.
Because the temperature of the body along the mucus membrane and sinus is low, it meets the condition for the virus to replicate once in a living host.
Invasion of the respiratory system is the target once in the body hence the need to 1) stop the replication of the virus 2) fortify the body to combat the virus.
These are my two suggested approaches which has also been proven by several research and journals both recent and old ones.
Herbs have been known to have bactericidal effects and sometimes virucidal effects. Professor Maurice Iwu and several researchers had worked on Garcina Kola (Bitter Kola) and it’s virucidal effects. His works came to the fore during the Ebola crisis amongst others.
Professor Ebenezer Faroumbi of the Departmenr of Biochemistry University of Ibadan has done so much works as well on Garcinia kola.
Natural fruits like lemon has been known to alleviate scurvy with sailors centuries back because of its ascorbic acid (vitamin c).
A few studies since the advent of the virus has also shown great progress with treatment using hydroxyl chloroquine and Azithromycin. The major constituent of chloroquine is quinine which is found mainly on the bark of Cinchona tree. This is the tree used in many cultures to treat malaria including several ethnicities in Nigeria with all its different names.
So, we have identified Garcina Kola, Lemon and Cinchona.
However, concerns will arise as regards dosage, side effects, usability for pregnant women and children, results on people with pre-existing conditions, etc.
