TCM and TCM app

TCM means alot to so many persons. One which is most popular among the list is Turner Classic Movie the TV network. We understand how we all crave for fun but it takes a healthy body to have fun. The TCM we are talking about is an acronym for Traditional Chinese Medicine. This was developed by the Chinese 2000 years ago which include various forms of Phytotheraphy, Acupuncture, dietary therapy, massage,  exercise and the rest. This literally is what this blog is all about and we try our best to include some African Traditional Medicine to some of our post.
  As much as I believe there are  lots of inadequacy in the practice, many have come to pick up some good stuffs about the practice like exercising. Many might not be able to explain adequately how exercising helps to maintain healthy living but they know quite well that people who exercise have better chances of recovering faster than those who don't make it a practice.

Sickle Cell Anaemia

Today happens to be the world sickle cell day. A very displeasing disease caused by the parent of the affected patient because of the negligence or ignorance of the parent to know their genotype before they start making babies.

Sickle cell is an hereditary disease which result in the abnormal shape of the hemoglobin in the red-blood cell. In this condition they are insufficient  healthy red blood cell. Normally the red blood cells are flexible and round with the ability to move freely through your blood vessels.

How you feel and look when you smile

Smiling would feel good when you gaze through the mirror and you obverse your teeth. How do you feel when after smiling, your smile starts trending as a subject of humor on social media because of teeth coloration. It is worth noting  that the true color of the teeth dentin is yellow. The more you age, the outer part of the teeth called enamel gets worn out revealing the true color of the teeth but they are other factor that also contribute to teeth coloration which are majorly centered on life style. 
One which is worthy of note is fluoride intake. Due to environmental factors, one could come in contact with it in drinking water. or should we start another behavioral communication against the use of tooth paste because we know sodium fluoride is one of the key compound of some toothpaste. should we start a campaign on using chewing stick rather than toothbrush? Some research have it that chewing stick has revealed parallel and at times greater mechanical and chemical cleansing of o…

When Hope Unborn is Dead

A merry heart does good like medicine. So does the Holy Book says but how can one be merry when hope disappoints?

Now that we are in the Christmas Holiday, it's a general believe that the prices of food and clothing skyrockets and we are still encourage through music to be joyful. Well, konga has made things easy these few days to Christmas. So don't let any circumstance steal your joy (delayed Salary or wages). The hope one has in a medicine go a long way in healing the person. I have seen someone who is used to taking just water when he is sick with the hope of getting well and it always work out for him.  From history, before the discovery of a chemotherapy for malaria, people see malaria  as a curse from  the angel of death. That was why Africa was called  the "White man's grave". But now, people see malaria as just mere fever that even many result in self medication without visiting the hospital but what if they are diagnosed of cancer or HIV/AID? How do you…

Cough in African Traditional Medicine

Cough is a reflex action to clear the throat of mucus and other substance that obstructs the breathing airways. cough is categorize into three: the acute cough which last for less than three weeks, sub-acute which last for between 3 to 8 weeks and the chronic cough which last for more than 8 weeks. The common causes of cough is the respiratory track infection caused by flu or cold. Another cause could be traced to asthma which is a little easy to identify because it comes out like a wheeze and the barking cough which is caused by smoking. Cough caused by smoking is chronic and smoking do a lot of damage to the lungs. Always put in mind the massage on the pack of the cigarette, "Smoking Kills",

Dietitian and Health Care

Today we shall be talking about food? what is food? is alcohol food or intravenous fluid (drip)? Before I try to answer these complex questions, let me establish the fact that if you eat the right food, you have a high chances of not getting sick. In TCM, we prefer health maintenance through preventive measure, compare to corrective measures. That is why most people ridicule TCM because they prefer corrective measure. Many countries life expectancy is dropping. Nigeria is 47 years. Check your age and compare yourself to people in that country. The earlier we embrace preventive health, the better for us and nutrition is a bale out. FYI we collaborate with orthodox medicine and we are doing our best to limit most of the side effect from using chemotherapy.
Back to the question, alcoho…
