  8. Beware of the blood clot and other curative claims for herbs“. Just a piece of advice as naija profs with such claims never try to publish it in peer reviewed journals so their claims cannot be replicated scientifically or confirmed. Bless anyone who believes and uses it and it works!

    1. You have written intelligently! Same issue with the Madagascar 'Covid19 cure'. I was speaking to my malagasy friend and he said it is propaganda. The president is pushing his own agenda. Why the hesitation to subject it to research testing?
      We need to be wise as Africans. If we are going to contribute to the world of science, we should use tested approaches. In case we have new discoveries, we can share the results and publish it for others to take interest. Thank you for speaking my mind!

    For paragraph 8...so true,got 2 kids with mild asthma,once their drama starts I pour ground negro pepper,dry ground cameroun pepper into foamy palmwine then soak for 4hrs and filter,give them a hot bath and the potent drink.End of Drama.
