With a second wave of COVID-19 blowing across the globe, Chief Executive Officer, TSBJ Aduke Reez Herbal Global Services, Dr (Mrs) Olowe Omobolanle, on Sunday called on governments at all levels to invite herbal medicine practitioners to fashion out lasting solution to the pandemic.
Omobolanle, while making this call in her herbal factory, Owode-Ede in Osun State during a sensitization programme, said “traditional herbal medicine dealers have adequate solutions to strange diseases,” regretting that government’s reluctance to involve traditional approach to research for permanent cure of the pandemic disease was highly regrettable.
Omobolanle, who enjoined Governor Gboyega Oyetola- led administration in the state to allow them to collaborate with their counterparts in the orthodox medicine practice who are getting full attention and recognition of the government said the development was towards safety of life.
The herbal medicine practitioner explained that “herbs have the potency to cure all kinds of ailments and diseases, as well as performing surgeries without using knives on their patients,” a feat which she said was accepted and encouraged in other climes like China and India where “herbal medicine has been taken to another level.”
She said, “in other climes like China and India, both orthodox medical and herbal medicine practitioners are exposed to same opportunities to practise side by side, and as such are able to contribute their quota separately in the practice of medicine.
“That is why am calling on our government to give us the opportunity to collaborate with the government’s medical practitioners to provide medical treatments for the teeming patients patronizing government orthodox hospitals.”
Government, at all levels, should not fold its hand watching people suffer and die innocently without exploring all possible means for the permanent cure to the Coronavirus pandemic.
Omobolanle, who has produced many herbal drugs like Reez Bitters, M&B Herbal Capsules, Sarewole Herbal Bitter drinks, among others, with NAFDAC approval, noted the importance of the herbal drugs to cure some chronic and minor ailments in the body like reduction of prostate growth, enhancement of fertility in men, typhoid fever, stroke among others.
She said some diseases did not need to be operated in the hospital.
According to her, “They just need some herbal drugs for permanent solution.”
Omobolanle, who has travelled far and near for research in the herbal medical services, called on the government, NGO, individual to collaborate with her for complete solution to any kind of diseases.
She further advised the people of the state to comply with all the rules and regulations laid down by the government on safety as well as preventive measures, pointing out that they should also observe and maintain a high level of personal hygiene.
