I have not written an article for One Tribe magazine for quite some time now, and I was absolutely delighted when I got the message from Kenny the owner and editor of the magazine, asking me if I would write an article for the second year birthday Anniversary of the magazine. Congratulations Kenny on a very successful two years with the magazine, and thank you for giving me the opportunity to write for One Tribe Magazine.
My time spent away from the magazine has been focused on a charity in Uganda, which helps women and children in impoverished areas such as the slum areas and villages of Uganda. The charity helps by raising funds to support these women and children and by providing them with the basic necessities that help women to look after their families.
My role within the charity is to provide natural health seminars and workshops for these women, So that they are able to go home and share the information with their own families. Uganda does not have an NHS system like the UK. Therefore the difference between life and death is money. If you don’t have the money for medical treatment then you are likely to die from whatever disease or illness you are suffering from. And the truth is, that some of the medical doctors are more interested in making money than prescribing the right treatment or medication for their patients. Many patients often end up being prescribed very expensive drugs that have no relation to the disease or illness that they are suffering from. This is why I feel that it is so important to remind the Ugandans of their ancestral knowledge and right to plant-based medicines, which our ancestors relied on for hundreds and thousands of years.
By teaching these women the most Basic ways in which to reduce their sugar intake and consume a plant based lifestyle, many people were able to overcome health challenges that they had been suffering with for quite sometime. For example, my aunt Mary was able to get rid of the high blood pressure that she had been suffering with for so many years. Other women were able to lose the weight that they had always wanted to lose, cleared up skin conditions, and we even saw improvements in some cancer patients.
However, the greatest success story of them all has to be my very own grandfather. We call him Jajja Maliko. One morning in June I had woken up to a text message and several voice messages to say that my grandfather had gone into a coma. They had found him laying unconsciously on the floor in his house. He had been there for more than 48 hours and they discovered that he had been bleeding from his head due to the full. My initial gut feeling and huge concern was that he would have a blood clot on his brain, which could possibly leave him brain-damaged for the rest of his life. He was quickly rushed to hospital where they did a scan and discovered that he had suffered a brain aneurysm, which they were reluctant to operate.
As a result of the brain clot, my grandfather was unable to recognise his own family members whom he had known all his life. He was unable to recognise where he was, and had lost all mobility down the left side of his body. He required assistance with eating, drinking, bath and toileting. Amongst everything else my grandfather had also lost his appetite for food. The future looked very grim and my family who were looking after him felt helpless. After a few days the hospital discharged my grandfather, with some medication and told my family there was nothing more they could do for him. Aunt Mary remembered that I’d helped her to get rid of high blood pressure. So she rang me up one day and asked if I could give some guidance on how to best look after grandfather. I provided her with a few simple health tips relating to what he should eat, drink, and what supplements to give him during his recovery.
Aunt Mary made sure that my grandfather was taking 3 cups of Moringa everyday, as I had suggested. She then made sure that he was on a plant only diet. On top of that I had asked her to make sure that my grandfather was not drinking any fluids whilst he was eating his food. 30 minutes before food and up to an hour or 30 minutes after food was okay for drinking fluids. When my grandfather wasn’t drinking Moringa tea, he was drinking water at room temperature never from the fridge. I had also requested that if he wanted to drink any form of juice it should be freshly squeezed passion fruit juice without sugar, and if he needed sugar it was okay to add a teaspoon of local organic honey to his passion fruit juice and Moringa tea. The sunshine also played an important role in my grandfather’s recovery. I had also suggested that they discontinue with the meds from the hospital, and advised aunt Mary to make sure that my grandfather was getting enough sunshine every day so that he did not become vitamin D deficient by staying indoors all the time.
A week later I received a voice note from my aunt Mary telling me that she had seen significant improvements in my grandfathers overall wellbeing and recovery. Firstly, he was able to regain his appetite within a week. Secondly, he was regaining energy and his skin was beginning to look rejuvenated and less wrinkled. Thirdly, his memory began to slowly return. Fourthly, within a couple of weeks he had regained the strength in the left side of his body and was able to walk around independently with the aid of a walking stick. My grandfather is a very proud and independent man, so being able to feed himself, walk himself, and take himself to the toilet was very important to his pride and dignity. By the way it is worth mentioning that after a few weeks of being out of hospital my grandfather attended a physiotherapy session, at which my aunt was told that this man did not require physiotherapy and that he would be able to make a recovery at home, just by continuing with the protocol that I had suggested.
In July I added Ashwagandha capsule supplements to his protocol, and four after his fall my grandfather was able to regain his full memory. He moved back to the village where he resides, he looks healthier and happier, and he does his gardening on a daily basis. It is success stories like this that give me the strength and courage to give my time willingly to educating women in impoverished Villages and slums in Uganda. I focus mainly on women, because they are the most likely to resonate with my teachings and take action. And when I’m back in the UK I continue to help people around the world via my website www.venus-club.org
