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 to abstain if you love a better life. 

Back to my story, the child in question, just fell lifeless on the floor and the action start causing people to gather around him like a crowd. A sailor who had gone to rehab before came close and had to clear the crowd. When he touched the boy, he notices his body was so cold, so he asked for an ointment called Abonki Bam. He applied it to his chest and arm. Then he asked for Bitter Leaf and salt and the child sneezed back to life.

He was lucky because everything needed to provide the right first aid for the convulsion were handy. If you've not considered growing herbs in your house as a first aid, please do consider it today. He was lucky because bitter leaf was planted in the home where the episode happened. Bitter leaf has the capacity of growing on a large range of soil. Let me try and explain what the bitter leaf and salt did to reviving the child from the seizure.

Convulsions is associated especially with brain disorders such as epilepsy, the presence of certain toxins or other agents in the blood, or fever in children. Not really verified, but bitter leaf helps to repair memory loss. Maybe the bitter leaf went immediately to repair the brain I guess it's an hypothesis.

Palm wine and Measles

Measles is a respiratory disease that is highly communicable. It is transmitted by the mucus or saliva of an infected patent. 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. It's a very big cause of child mortality. World health organization (WHO) had recorded more than 100,000 children less than the ages of 5 whose life had been claimed by measles in 2016.

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?
