#NationalHempDay

The Registrar at National Day Calendar declared National Hemp Day to be observed annually beginning on February 4th, 2019. The cbdMD are honoured as the official founder of the national hemp day.

We have so many myths as how the hemp was discovered to be psychoactive. Some say, it was discovered by hunters. They dicovered a place where monkeys were easy captured. whenever they go there, they discover lots of monkey sleeping some having the weed in there hands, so they discovered the weed they held was psychoactive. Some other funny ones say it was a weed a god urinated on that is the cause for it's psycho-activity but the truth is hemp as existed for a long time now.


Hemp has been a part of human civilization for thousands of years. Hemp fibers were used in some of the earliest civilization to make fabric for clothing and other materials. America's founding fathers drafted early documents on hemp paper and even used a "Hemp for victory" Campaign during the the second w…

We had posted on the importance of TCM to cancer where we talked about some mushroom like Ganoderma Lucidum and all that. But today being world cancer day, we just feel like saying one or two things about cancer and we picked the migrating nature of Cancer.
Cancer is a group of diseases involving abnormal cell growth with the potential to invade or spread to other part of the body. Cancer is mostly caused by life-style. 22% of people with cancer use tobacco that is why the cigarette has it written boldly on the pack that smokers are liable to die young. I something hear people call cigarette cancer stick. 10 percent is caused by obesity. We try to give our readers with sweet tooth a substitute food for there addiction with lower calories in our calorie balance. Poor nutrition, alcoholic intake and one which is worthy of note is genetic mutation. We expose ourselves to electromagnetic material like our mobile phones which is a transceiver. If we have any reason to fear for people livin…

A simple alternative remedy to convulsions

We had describe some good African traditional medicine on this blog. Just wanted to post an experience I witness of a child of 16 who fell under convulsion. Everyone thought he was dead till someone worked a magic with a traditional medicine we had talked about in this blog that kept my mind disturbed about a scientific explanation to what I just witnessed. It was said of the person who revived him that he died twice in his hand. Before I go on with my story let me introduce us to what convulsion means.

 convulsion describes an episode characterized by erratic, usually involuntary physical movements, which may be accompanied by changes in consciousness. It is caused by several medical conditions like: Seizure, infections, electrolyte imbalance and must importantly because I suspected the story I'm yet to tell is link to this cause. Overdose or withdrawal from drugs or alcohol. My advise for those already caught in the act, seek help and if you're thinking about it, I advise you…

Post-Natal Psychosis (PNP)

The 21st of January was Marthin Lurther King Jr's day being celebrated in all 50 state of the United state. Martin Luther who was born on the 15th of January, 1929  is been celebrited within the 15th -21st of January and remembered for been a human right activist who had a dream to liberate the black race in America from discrimination. The actions of Martin Luther king Jr can be traced to the spirit of alternative health to see that everyone get access to wellness in body and mind at a considerable amount of money. What other topic would best feet to remember Martin Luther than to talk about one of the most discrimnated disease of the mind that science cannot completely explain how it occur but believes it could be genetic. Psychosis and schizophrenia is the hieght of mental disorder. It is worst than bipolar disorder and anxiety. It is when an individual begins to display highly erractic behaviours, and can no longer distinguish between what's real and what is not.

Noma Disease

We cannot over emphasis the importance of tcm in curbing noma because it is perculiar among children under the age of twelve of the poorest country of Africa. But let us stop and ask ourselves what Noma disease is.

Noma is a disease that affects the mouth or genitals. It is caused by a rapidly progressive polymicrobial. It affect the mucous membranes of the mouth. It start with an ulcer then a rapid, painless degeneration occur to the mouth.

Noma can be caused by malnutrition especially the lack of vitamin A and Vitamin B. There is one good suppliment by Tasly called cen forte Tablet (commonly called Cen forte Tab) this is quite expensive for the demograph prune to be expose to it. So we have moringa oleifera and Bitter Leaf which is a cheap or almost free source of vitamin A and B found in Africa that could support malnutrition cause of noma. Let us just list all the causes of noma and we shall profer some tcm solution to those causes.

5 common myths about Pregnancy (do's and don'ts)

Pregnancy is a beautiful thing. People just believe when they have a heir, the are fulfilled in life. Though the good book says, "go into the world and multiply". For this reasons people develop different do's and don'ts about the process of procreation. they have do's and don'ts to conceive a male child, but our focus would be on pregnancy.



pregnancy and Gender: I like to adapt it as "girl child pregnancy". People believe they could determine the sex of a baby by the reaction of the pregnant mother. They believe female child disturbs or stress out the mother compares to male child. But all this is base on folklore not science. The most effective way to verify the sex of the child is through ultrasound scan when the pregnancy is 20 weeks old. Many carries the view that a girl child gives her mother stressful morning sickness and makes her nauseous. Those signs shows it's a girl child. when I tried to investigate what science has to say about that…
