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.

  • Poor oral hygiene
  • Unsafe drinking water.
  • Proximity to unkempt livestock.
  • Recent illness.
  • Measles
  • Smoking
  •  immunodeficiency disease (like HIV)
We know tcm promotes good and healthy life-style as part of its health therapy. So smoking is a bad habbit but we hear rumours about some phytotherapy that could help addict stop smoking. We shall post when we have done our proper findings. But we have done some work on measles and promoted A1- Capsule for immunodeficiency disease. Noma can be curb medically if discovered earlier with good antibiotics and good nutrition. But when the deal is done, one could only result in a very delicate maxillofacial surgery. Even if done by the best of surgeons, the face would not look perfectly the way it was before, so get education as a vaccine against noma.

It is airborne and could be transmitted when an affected persons sneezes or cough to the air. It is common among children but on a rare case adult contact it also.

One traditional way of treating measles is through Palm wine especial among adult. They drink and sometimes pour a little in their bucket of water when having their bath. Children uses coconut water instead of palm wine because of the alcoholic content of Palm wine. I like us to examine these practice to be sure if Palm wine really helps to solve measles or it's just a myth.

Vaccine is usually given to children against measles called measles vaccine. No particular chemotherapy against measles but supportive ca…

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…
