HEALTH MATTERS: MUST DO AFTER AGE 40

HEALTH MATTERS: MUST DO AFTER AGE 40

By Pharm. Lawal Muhammed

(Doctor of Pharmacy)July 18, 2020



*Regular exercise, this must be graduated and suitable for your health/social status.


*Healthy feeding(this doesn't necessarily mean balance diet), do not crash your diet, avoid late night food. Be more of vegetarian and take a lot of fruits. Stop red meats including internal tissues like intestines, "towels" etc except - kidney, liver, heart and lungs - stop eating hides and skin "kpomo" it's a slow killer.


*Observe regularly siesta, even if you don't fall asleep, just have a quiet time, put off your phone or put it in silence mode while observing siesta. 


*Always sleep on the same bed with your spouse even if you do not have intention of intimacy with her. It has a lot of benefits, it reduces stress hormone (cortisol) level.


*As much as possible, sleep on your left side when sleeping especially at night, this helps to drain the system of toxic substances through the lymphatic system. For the muslims, you can start with your right hand side to say your prayers before you sleep after which you can change later. I hope you understand?


* Do not immediately rise on your feet after you wake up from sleep especially at night, remain on your sleeping position for (20- 30 sec) even if you are pressed, then rise to a sitting position for same time, then you can stand up and walk. This helps to prevent sudden brain damage that could lead to stroke. 


* Have regular sex (legal), 2-3 times a week is recommended. Making love is more beneficial than having sex. I hope you understand? This has a lot of health benefits ranging from your heart, prostate, brain etc


* Avoid cold bath as much as possible it should be warm. This also helps in reducing chances of stroke/heart attack. 


* Routine drugs to take on daily bases are: Tab vasoprin (Aspirin) 75mg daily if you don't have ulcer, Strong antioxidants e.g natural vit. E, 1caps daily, in addition to these, ladies are expected to be on regular Calcium supplement or biscuit bones especially after menopause, this helps in minimising osteoporosis as a result of bone leaching that women experience post menopause. A condition that most mistake to be rheumatism. 


* Know your body mass index (BMI) and work towards maintaining ideal BMI (20 - 25 kg/m square). If not done, this has a lot of health implications ranging from sudden death, metabolic disorder like diabetes; Cardiovascular disorders like hypertension, heart attack, stroke; infertility problems like an ovulation in females; Neuromuscular problems like rheumatism; & Respiratory distress amongst others. You see that there are a whole lots of problems if you don't keep fit. Obesity is not a sign of good living but ill health. 


* Drink a lot of water (look warm) in a day, 2 to 3 litres of water per day can help in keeping your system adequately hydrated and helps your kidneys function properly.


*Cut down your stress level both physical/mental/psychological/emotional and take time out for recreational activities especially those that will make you happy/laugh. 


* Avoid social poisons like kolanut, cigarettes, energy drinks, alcohol/alcoholic drinks, though some schools of thought say certain % of alcohol per day is good for the heart. Note that bitter kola "O'ro" is highly medicinal and it's good for our health, particularly for females. It's a powerful anti oxidant, it helps to prevent all forms of malignancies be it cancer of the breast, cervix, prostate e.t.c, it helps to improve male sexual performance, slows aging process, reduces severity of rheumatism, slows process of dementia/amnesia, helps to prevent diabetes mellitus/ diabetic complications in diabetic individuals, prevent/slow the growth of fibroids and a whole lots. In fact, I would recommend 1 nut of bitter kola per day for everyone age 40 years and above. Note that, it's not too safe if you have peptic ulcer especially Gastric. It could worsen the symptoms of ulcer.


* Avoid caffeinated beverages like Millo, Bournvita etc for green tea. 


* Avoid processed foods as much as possible like noodles, pasta, can foods etc.


*Avoid sitting on a spot beyond two hours max., stand and walk around after one and half or max two hours of sitting. It's for the health of your GIT - gastro intestinal tract. More so it avert chances of hemorrhoid (pile).


* Avoid sugar including honey, yes HONEY! It will eventually give you that same problem that made you stop sugar, it will only take a longer time. 


*Regular health check.


*Imbibe the culture of preventive medicine and not curative medicine.




I hope this few lines will be of help in improving our quality life?


Thank you for your time πŸ™


Remain healthy.

5.5 MILLION Covid-19 cases recorded worldwide – AFP tally

5.5 MILLION Covid-19 cases recorded worldwide – AFP tally

The number of Covid-19 infection cases has now topped 5.5 million across the globe, according to a report by news agency AFP. 

More than one million new cases have been reported in the past 10 days.


The world passed this somber milestone on Tuesday, with more than two-thirds of all confirmed cases recorded in Europe and the United States. Europe has been the continent hardest hit by the outbreak of the virus, with the UK recording the highest number of both infections and Covid-19 deaths.

This latest tally comes as nations across the globe cautiously begin to ease lockdown measures. Critics say the figures may be a conservative estimate, as the widespread lack of sufficient testing has hindered countries’ ability to confidently report the real number of infections.

President Trump hopes for COVID-19 vaccine by end of year, 'maybe before'

President Trump hopes for COVID-19 vaccine by end of year, 'maybe before'



Washington (AFP) - US President Donald Trump Friday said he hoped a COVID-19 vaccine would be available by the end of the year, and announced he was appointing a former pharmaceutical executive to spearhead the effort.

"We are looking to get it by the end of the year if we can, maybe before," Trump said, as he delivered an update on the race for a vaccine. "We think we are going to have some very good results coming out very quickly," he told reporters in the Rose Garden of the White House.

The timeline projected by Trump is more optimistic than what Europe foresees. The European Medicines Agency said Thursday a vaccine could be ready in a year's time under an "optimistic scenario."

Trump announced he would appoint Moncef Slaoui, the former head of GSK Vaccines, and four star army general Gustave Perna, to lead "Operation Warp Speed." "My administration is providing roughly $10 billion to support a medical research effort without parallel," the president said, comparing the effort with the Manhattan Project during World War 2 that led to the development of nuclear weapons.

Trump added that when a vaccine was ready the military would be enlisted to distribute it -- and evoked a spirit of global cooperation. "We are working together with many different countries, and again we have no ego," he said. "Whoever gets it, we think it is great, we are going to work with them and they're going to work with us. If we get it, we'll be working with them."

Scientists have cautioned that it is possible that despite worldwide efforts, it is possible that an effective vaccine may never be found -- or that some vaccines could backfire and make people more, not less, susceptible to infection.

Trump also sought to temper expectations.

"Again, it is not solely vaccine based," he said. "Other things have never had a vaccine and they go away. So I don't want people to think this is all dependent on a vaccine, but a vaccine would be a tremendous thing."

Scientists have never previously developed a successful vaccine for any kind of coronavirus that infects humans. Efforts that were underway against the SARS coronavirus were halted early because that disease was contained after infecting about 8,000 people, and it was therefore not judged profitable to pursue.

Vaccines do exist for animal coronaviruses, for example a type of coronavirus that infects chickens -- and this is used by farmers. However, it also kills a certain percentage of chickens, and such an outcome would not be acceptable in humans.

COVID-19 IN AFRICA AND LEADERSHIP APPROACH IN NIGERIA

COVID-19 IN AFRICA AND LEADERSHIP APPROACH IN NIGERIA

Ten African Heads of States discussed about Covid Organics, through video conference call recently about the drug produced by Madagascar sourced from natural plants. Below you have the list of participants in that conference call

Andry Rajoelina —Madagascar πŸ‡²πŸ‡¬
Cyril Ramaphosa — South Africa πŸ‡ΏπŸ‡¦
Paul Kagame — Rwanda πŸ‡·πŸ‡Ό
Uhuru Kenyatta — Kenya πŸ‡°πŸ‡ͺ
Ali Bongo — Gabon πŸ‡¬πŸ‡¦
Idriss Deby — Chad πŸ‡ΉπŸ‡©
Felix Tshisekedi — DRCongo πŸ‡¨πŸ‡©
Abdul Fatah El Sisi — Egypt πŸ‡ͺπŸ‡¬
Boubacar Kata — Mali πŸ‡²πŸ‡±
Mohamadou Issoufou — Niger πŸ‡³πŸ‡ͺ

Recall Andry Rajoelina of Madagascar met with Macky Sall of Senegal last week also about same issue. Also the school kids in Madagascar are back in school now, its compulsory for students to take the herbal mixture and the lockdown in the country is now lifted

In contrast Nigerian Professor Maurice Iwu in a viral video lamented lack of cooperation by Nigerian government, made efforts reaching out to both Minister of Health and Science & Technology but rebuffed by the duo. He claimed to have found a cure for Coronavirus, His research effort acknowledged and efficacy proven against Ebola and SARS Virus in the past which can also be used for COVID-19 cure

This is a man who studied at the University of Bradford, England, receiving a Master of Pharmacy degree in 1976, and a Ph.D in 1978. He was World Health Organisation (WHO) Visiting Scholar to Dyson Perrins Laboratory, University of Oxford (1980), Fulbright Senior Scholar, Ohio State University and won the U.S National Research International Prize for Ethnobiology in 1999.

Guess what Nigerian government will rather accept vaccines from WHO and any other from abroad but research findings by Nigerians are ignored, you will expect government to at least try and engage the Professors in Nigeria first. We can see the difference in leadership approach of President Andry Rajoelina who supported the effort in his country, applauded and recognised by many today compared to our leaders in Nigeria

Please watch the video of TVC News interview of Prof Maurice Iwu , you can now decipher and reflect on the title above

US should have spent half its military budget on healthcare system instead of missiles, 'ex-economic hitman' Perkins says

US should have spent half its military budget on healthcare system instead of missiles, 'ex-economic hitman' Perkins says

The Covid-19 pandemic should be a rallying call to change an economic system that spends billions each year on the tools of war but can't produce a decent healthcare system, bestselling author John Perkins told RT.

Perkins is best known for his book 'Confessions of an Economic Hit Man,' in which he describes how American corporate elites plunder other nations to enrich themselves.

The economic system that puts immediate gains above all else, which Perkins calls an "economy of death" may be as lethal to common Americans as to people in Latin America or Eastern Asia, he said in an interview with RT Spanish. One only needs to look at the death toll of the Covid-19 epidemic in the US to see the proof.

"Our annual military budget is something between $600 billion and $700 billion. But we've just spent about $3 trillion to fight coronavirus. If we had spent half of that military budget over the last 10 years creating a better healthcare system in this country, we would all be better off now. The world would be better off," he said.

The big flaw of the current arrangement is that corporations don't suffer financially for inflicting long-term damage.

"In a way, it boils down to the driving force behind the 'death economy,' which is to maximize the short-term profits regardless of social or environmental costs," Perkins said.

Changing the equation would require a shift in public policy that would incentivize investment in projects with long-term public benefits. Unfortunately, the US government's priorities are pretty far from that goal, judging by the bloated defense budget, the author believes.

"Fifty-four percent of my taxpayer dollars in the discretionary budget in the US go to the military industry. You know, to kill people, basically," he said. "Imagine if that money or some large portion of that money was instead paid [to improve the lives of people].

We could pay Raytheon and Boston Dynamics that currently make missiles to instead create processes for mining all the plastic in the ocean!

The coronavirus death toll is just one of many examples of how the same people who bend weaker governments to their wills with conditional loans, corrupt deals and occasionally orchestrated coups hurt the American public, Perkins told Rafael Correa, the former president of Ecuador, who hosts his own show on RT.

"The economic hitmen system that started by us exploiting other countries… has now spread around the world and came back to hurt ourselves," he said. "It's an extremely effective systems of using death and fear. Either the fear of being killed in case of a [foreign] president, or the fear of having debt for the rest of your life in the case of students in the United States."

Climate change, income inequality, terrorism, extinction of species – all of these things "are symptoms of a global economic system that is not working," Perkins said.

WHO envoy says creating readily available vaccine for coronavirus will take months, says work continues on than 70 vaccine options

WHO envoy says creating readily available vaccine for coronavirus will take months, says work continues on than 70 vaccine options

WHO's representative in Russia Melita Vujnovic said during an interview with TASS that creating a readily available vaccine for the coronavirus will take months.

Vujnovic said: "intensive efforts to create a vaccine for the coronavirus are underway at dozens of research centers across the globe, including in Russia."

"Work continues on than 70 vaccine options and at least 20 options are being considered for preclinical and clinical trials," she pointed out.

"Nevertheless, clinical trials may take much time because there is a need to make sure that the new vaccine is safe and effective. This is why it will be a long time before the vaccine becomes available to people across the world," Vujnovic added.

All 193 member states of the United Nations General Assembly earlier unanimously supported a resolution calling for preventing speculations concerning the future vaccine for the coronavirus and ensuring general access to medicines and protective equipment.

The resolution also emphasized the World Health Organization’s key role in the fight against the pandemic.

In Russia, a total of 52,763 coronavirus cases have been confirmed, with 3,873 patients having recovered from the virus.

Russia’s latest data indicates 456 fatalities nationwide.

The ravaging COVID-19 outbreak was in late December 2019 brought into the attention of the global communities when Chinese officials notified the World Health Organization (WHO) about the outbreak of a previously unknown pneumonia in the city of Wuhan, in central China. 

Since then, cases of the novel coronavirus have been reported in every corner of the globe with more than 185 countries and territories confirmed the presence of the deadly infection in their domains


The World Health Organisation (WHO) on March 11, 2020 declared the COVID-19 outbreak a pandemic. 

The latest statistics indicated that more than 2,500,000 people have been infected worldwide and more than 175,000 deaths have been reported.

United State is currently the most affected country both terms of the infection people and death toll. Over 700,000 have been infected and over 40,000 COVID-19 related death have been recorded. 

Italy Spain, France, and the UK are the worst affected countries in Europe while Iran cases are the worst in the middle east up till date.
