For over a decade I have been practising Prophetic and Natural Medicine, attending to different medical cases, including the so-called incurable diseases ranging from HIV, Chronic Hepatitis, Cardiovascular diseases, Diabetes and some others. As a renowned practitioner of this holistic medicine both in Nigeria and abroad, I see it necessary to contribute – just as we have been doing years back, to the health safety of the humanity through this piece of enlightenment.
The world today is suffering from the tension of the new viral disease COVID-19, which has taken thousands of lives and put more than 600 thousand people in a critical health condition. It is pertinent to note at this juncture that the major way to prevent ourselves from this pandemic is by boosting our immune system and taking necessary precautions. Let me put it here that the best way to boost our immune system is to, as much as possible, be close to nature. The food you eat; or better yet, not eat plays a much more essential role in preventing and curing any disease than any drugs or fancy diets your doctor may prescribe you. The only thing you need to do is to change the things you eat, the things you drink, the way you sleep… in a short word, change your lifestyle.
I must tell you, as a certified practitioner of Prophetic Medicine, that the entire medical system is made to keep you hooked on drugs for life while lining the greedy pockets of pharmaceutical companies. Nobody wants to cure you or make you get better. Everything is made to keep you as sick as possible, thereby guaranteeing profits to them for life. 2500 years ago, Hippocrates, the “Father of Medicine”, said to his students, “Let thy food be thy medicine and thy medicine be thy food”. Moses Maimonides, the great 12th-century physician, repeated the Hippocratic statement when he said, “No illness which can be treated by diet should be treated by any other means”. In essence, Hippocrates and Maimonides were insisting that their students practice nutrition therapy, healing the body not by pills, drugs, or surgery, but by changing the things you eat. This type of medical therapy is being used by doctors today, but only by a very small minority, and with diet, we have successfully treated many diseases.
Patrick Holford, Director of the Institute for Optimum Nutrition in London makes this very clear: “Tomorrow’s medicine will not be about using nutrients instead of drugs. It will be about looking through a new pair of glasses which reveal the true causes of disease. In most cases, these lie in faulty nutrition, pollution, stress, negativity, addiction and lack of exercise – the greatest cause of all is ignorance. The original meaning of the word ‘doctor’ is “teacher or learned man” and that is perhaps the most important role a health professional can perform”.
It is our strong believe that each patient carries his own divine doctor inside him. We are at our best when we give the doctor who resides within a chance to go to work by boosting the immunity and allowing body to heal itself. Our unique approach is to identify and treat the underlying root cause of the disease, rather than hibernate the symptoms. In achieving this, we focus on our patient’s lifestyle, ensure that his immune system is strengthened and the body is free from toxins otherwise known as free radicals. Otto Warburg, the Noble Price winner of 1931 cancer discovery has nailed it when he said: “No disease, including cancer, can survive in an alkaline environment”.
At this juncture, I would like to state it clearly that the fight against this global pandemic requires the intervention of alternative medical practitioners to save humanity from the present outbreak. Natural medicine is so blessed with myriad wonderful herbs that have what it takes to combat this novel virus, one of which is The Great BLACK-SEED that stands tall among others. It is noteworthy to mention that since 1959 till date, over 2000 researches have been done in different parts of the world to unravel the therapeutic and prophylactic properties of the black seed. It has become an open secret that no single herb under the sky has such diverse and trusted health benefit as black seed, not even garlic or turmeric. Even modern science attested to this fact. Modern science has documented over 900 articles examining the effects of black seed on more than 185 diseases; the results show that black seed is indeed natural healer.
Among the myriads of the amazing roles of the black seed include: analgesic, anxiolytic, anti-bacterial, anti-ulcer, antioxidants, antiviral, anti-spasmodic, anti-bacterial, anti-jussive, carminative, diuretic, galactogogue, immunodulator, hepatoprotective, renal-protective, anti-hypertensive/hypotensive, anticancer, gastro-protective, hypoglycemic among others. According to Mahfouz and El- Dakhakhny “the active ingredients in the black seed are nigellone, thymoquinone, thymohydroquinone, thymol and fixed oils”.The antiviral property of black seed is beyond imaginable, and an attestation to the unique antiviral property of black seed, the United States granted a patent for the use of black seed in combating a host of viral infections thus: US 6841174. I have used black seed in combination with some herbs to treat viral diseases successfully with few months.

From my experience, I discovered that the major work that this blessed seed does is to boost the immune system in a way that will help the body fight all form of infections and viruses, including the COVID-19. Black seed was recommended by Prophet Muhammad 1440 years ago in his divine wisdom, he said: “There is healing in Black Seed for all diseases except death”. The presence of copper in black seed further confirms its role in boosting immunity. A healthy immune system also helps fight obesity, diabetes, arthritis and all chronic diseases. It is worthy to note that the United States also granted patents to black seed as an immune-boosting and cancer-inhibiting herb.
It is pertinent to note that natural medicine has gone far beyond self-medication and administration of herbs without understanding what it takes to be a medical practitioner. Despite the tremendous benefits of the black seed, it is not recommended in some particular conditions. I believe you all know what contraindication(s) of drugs means! Let me state it clearly again that even though the black seed has a great effect in combating viral diseases, yet, there are some other herbs that go together with it in order to win this battle in a very short period. What more? Sorry, It’s against the etiquette of this profession to prescribe medication without examining the patient and taking his medical history. Yes, my message is that we are ready to combat this virus if the opportunity is given by the Federal Government. Indeed, we have a lot to offer! Stay home, stay healthy!
