Two Chinese women have died from the H1N1 flu strain in Beijing in the past 10 days, Chinese state media said on Sunday, the first reported deaths from the virus in China's capital since 2010.

A 65-year-old cancer patient died on Friday and a 22-year-old migrant worker died on December 27, the Beijing Daily said on its website, citing the city's Centre for Disease Control and Prevention, reports Reuters.

Flu cases in Beijing are at their highest level in five years and the H1N1 strain has become the most dominant, the centre's director Deng Ying said.

The rise in cases corresponds with weeks of record low temperatures in Beijing and across much of China.

H1N1 is a swine flu virus responsible for a pandemic that broke out in 2009, starting in the United States and Mexico and spreading around the world in six weeks.

Initial World Health Organization estimates put the number of deaths from that global outbreak at around 18,500, but a study published last June said the death toll was likely to have been between 284,500 and 579,000 people.

Nigeria: Ekwowusi, National Health Bill is Unconstitutional

0 0
Read Time:2 Minute, 8 Second

 The National Health Bill 2012, which had already scaled through second reading in the Senate, has been described unconstitutional, self-serving and incompatible with cherished human values as enshrined in the constitution and many African and international human rights instruments.

A Lagos-based lawyer, Mr. Sonnie Ekwowusi faulted the bill in a statement, recalling that President Goodluck Jonathan declined assent to a version of the bill, which the National Assembly passed into law in 2011.

He observed that President Jonathan had to send the bill back to the National Assembly because the Nigerian Medical Association (NMA), the Health Workers Association of Nigeria and other stakeholders “opposed the bill on grounds that it failed to protect their interests.

“In the same vein, non-government organisations, churches, mosques and members of civil society unanimously denounced the bill as incapable of solving the country’s urgent primary healthcare needs. Very painfully, the bill endorses trafficking in human tissues and human embryos,” he said.

He specifically explained that section 51 of the Bill “empowers the Health Minister, through his written permission, (with or without the non binding recommendation of National Ethics Research Committee), to grant a license to any person or group of persons to import or export Nigerian human zygotes or embryos to foreign countries for whatever purposes including cloning (therapeutic or otherwise)”.

He therefore questioned the same offensive section 51 was re-introduced verbatim in the new National Health Bill, knowing fully well that it was on that ground that the public successfully challenged the old bill, thereby leading President Jonathan to withhold his assent.
According to him, in a country like Nigeria where uncountable Nigerians are dying owing to inaccessibility to basic primary health, the National Assembly goes about making laws that encourage exploitation and trafficking in human eggs, embryos, embryonic stem cell research, therapeutic and reproductive cloning.

He added that trafficking in human eggs, embryos and embryonic stem cell research “has become a multibillion dollar business worldwide. If Nigeria goes ahead and legalizes it, it will very difficult to control or regulate considering our ineffective police system, judicial checks and regulatory policies”.

Ekwowusi said despite the trumpeting about human cloning over these years, no university laboratory or centre of research “has been authorized to carry out a prolonged work on human cloning not only because of the danger involved or its moral implications or the scientific polemics involved but because of the enormous money which such white elephant experimentation would guzzle.

5 home remedies for colds and catarrh

0 0
Read Time:2 Minute, 54 Second

THE harmattan is at its peak and attendant diseases are in session. Ailments including infections whooping cough, pneumonia, common cold, malaria and asthma, are on the rise.  The dry winds and dust are certainly not helping matters. However, there are simple, affordable home remedies with which to cope with these conditions.

Garlic tea immune enhancer

A well-known immune system strengthener, garlic shines as an antibacterial and antiviral herb for fighting colds, coughs and the flu. One of the best ways to take advantage of garlic’s healing properties is by drinking fresh garlic tea. Sweetened with a little raw honey, it’s delicious.

Peel 2-3 cloves of fresh garlic and lightly crush them with the side of a wide knife blade. Add to two cups of water and boil. Simmer for  15 minutes. Strain the garlic and allow the tea to cool to mouth temperature. Add raw honey, a tiny pinch of cayenne pepper and a squeeze of lemon juice. Drink as desired.

Red onion and raw honey cough syrup

A wonderful home remedy for adults or children suffering from a cough uses brown cane sugar, raw honey or stevia and red onions to make a soothing and tasty cough syrup. Wash, peel and slice the entire onion horizontally. Starting with the base of the onion, layer the slices in a bowl alternating with layers of raw honey or brown sugar.

Continue adding layers of onion and sweetener until the entire onion is reconstructed in the bowl. Cover and allow the sweetened onion to remain in the bowl for about 12-15 hours or overnight. The next day, there will be about a cup or more of sweet syrup in the bowl. The cough syrup contains a range of nutrients, vitamins and minerals to help fight infection and soothe sore throats and quiet a cough. Take a spoonful as needed. Has no onion-y taste.

Raw honey and lemon For sore throats

A mixture of fresh lemon juice and raw honey provides soothing relief for sore throats and helps stop the tickle that stimulates coughing. Raw honey — with all its components including royal jelly, propolis and bee pollen — is high in nutrients and enzymes which kill bacteria and viruses. The vitamin C and antioxidants found in fresh lemons boost the immune system, speeding healing. Together these two home remedies are a powerhouse for getting over a cold and sore throat. Mix the juice of 1/2 the lemon with 2- 3 tablespoons of honey and sip throughout the day as needed.

Chicken soup antiviral

Chicken soup really does act to knock out a cold or the flu and hasten healing. As long ago as the 12th century, the Jewish physician Maimonides recommended consuming chicken soup to fight colds and flu. Take advantage of the high antioxidant properties and nutrients found in organic vegetables and chicken. Although non-organic chicken soup may relieve some cold symptoms, it also supplies the body with pesticides, growth hormones, herbicides and antibiotics that are not recommended for well being.

Mullein tea for coughs and congestion

Mullein tea is well-known for relieving chest congestion from coughs, colds and the flu. It acts as an expectorant, loosening trapped mucous and soothing sore throats. Fill a tea ball or strainer with dried mullein herb and steeping in a cup of boiling water for 10 minutes. Sweeten with raw honey and drink as needed to relieve symptoms.

Global network fights asthma

0 0
Read Time:1 Minute, 35 Second

A world without asthma is the ultimate vision of the Global Asthma Network, launched last week at the University of Auckland.

The network aims to improve care for people with asthma around the world. Its work will range from research into the causes of asthma to improving access to essential medicines.

As the most common cause of chronic illness in children worldwide – with 235 million sufferers around the world – asthma represents a major global challenge in health care and warrants recognition as an urgent target for action.

“The tools to treat asthma are already available,” says Prof. Innes Asher from The University of Auckland. “And the obstacles to well-managed asthma can be overcome. Asthma is a public health problem that can – and should – be addressed now, and GAN will be dedicated to achieving that goal.”

A United Nations high-level meeting on non-communicable diseases in September 2011 resulted in increased discussion about how to handle the growing incidence of NCDs worldwide, and in November 2012, member states met to develop a monitoring framework and some targets for action. However their main focus has been on diseases such as cancer, diabetes, and cardiovascular diseases.

A key goal for the creators of GAN is to lift the global recognition of asthma to a similar level, and strengthen the international framework for asthma management and research.

The new network, launched on 27 November, brings together two key players in the international fight against asthma: the International Study of Asthma and Allergies in Childhood (ISAAC), led from The University of Auckland, and the International Union Against Tuberculosis and Lung Disease (The Union), founded in France in 1920.

ISAAC is a worldwide asthma research project, the largest epidemiological study of children in the world, with more than two million children studied over 22 years in more than 300 centres in 105 countries.

Solution to infertility: Simple as ABC

0 0
Read Time:7 Minute, 30 Second

What are the signs of infertility? Have you been trying to conceive for what seems like ‘too long’? Getting worried? At what point should you make an appointment with your doctor? This scenario can be very upsetting for any couple!

According to fertility-health.com, an online portal that provides general knowledge about human health, there may be unnoticeable reasons why couples may be having trouble conceiving.

Experts say there are numerous reasons why a couple may be having problems conceiving, and the most evident signs of infertility may lie within their lifestyle.

Contributing factors can include lifestyle issues such as stress, being over- or underweight, substance abuse or environmental toxins. Nutrition can also play a huge part in reproductive health and can certainly contribute towards certain signs of infertility.

There are certain symptoms that couples should look out for, which doctor should be alerted to when dealing with problem of infertility. These symptoms are clues to help the doctor make the correct diagnosis to help couples in their situation. The earlier a diagnosis is made, the more opportunity couples have to deal with the issue. As such, doctors advise not to delay seeing a qualified medical expert.

Male infertility

Statistics show that men are equally as likely to have fertility problems as women. Impotency, erection or ejaculation difficulties may be symptoms of other underlying health conditions such as high blood pressure or diabetes.

Normal visual appearance of semen

Should semen be ‘thick’ or ‘runny’? Why does it appear ‘watery’ sometimes? Is this one of the signs of infertility? Many men are concerned about what the normal consistency (appearance) of their semen should be, and if this has any relation to their sperm count.

Consistency of semen can vary greatly from one man to another. It is common for this to occasionally vary (either ‘thick’ in texture or sometimes becoming more ‘watery’ in looks) depending on factors such as diet, dehydration, frequency of ejaculation, etc. So, for that reason, there is no defined ‘normal appearance.’ It is normal for semen to liquefy shortly after ejaculation. Semen is usually a semi translucent off white/gray colouring, and can sometimes have a slight yellow tinge.

Experts warn that you cannot tell how fertile you are by just the ‘look’ of your ejaculate alone. Only a sperm analysis can accurately determine a man’s sperm concentration. They say, however, that if a man notices any substantial or persistent changes to his regular semen appearance/colour, he should seek advice from a doctor.

Low sperm count

There are all sorts of factors that can contribute to this sign of infertility. They include alcohol, smoking or drug abuse; poor diet, environmental toxins, wearing tight underwear (bad circulation/heat), constantly sitting with legs crossed, bike riding (cutting off circulation and overheating), hot baths, having had a high fever within the last three months, X-rays and radiation.

Fertility experts recommend lifestyle changes if couples want to get positive result about their fertility issue.

Hormones

Experts warn that men may not realise that they can suffer from hormone imbalances – just as women do – and that when they do, it can be a sign of infertility. They warn, “Symptoms vary, but it is still important to let your doctor know if you notice any of the following signs as they may be clues: unexplained weight gain or loss; loss of muscle tone, headaches; anxiety/depression/mood swings; fatigue, low sex drive, acne/skin problems, breast enlargement, hair loss, puffiness/bloating, prostate enlargement symptoms (urinary problems), gallbladder problems like indigestion, pain under the ribs on the right hand side; light coloured stools, etc.

Infections

Men can contract infections of the reproductive tract through sexual contact, poor immunity, surgery complications and other medical factors. Men are advised to undergo check-ups for any sexually transmitted infections, as these often show no physical signs straight away. Bacterial or viral infections can also affect the sperm count for some time afterwards.

Though these problems are there, the good news is that there are many treatments available with today’s medical knowledge and breakthroughs to help with fertility challenges.

One tested and proved supplement that has been known to help in the treatment of male infertility is Addyzoa, a herbo-mineral whose ingredients are also used in a number of anti-ageing, rejuvenating and virilising formulations. Thus, various studies suggest that the medicinal plants used in the formulation of Addyzoa are potent and novel therapeutic agents for the regulation of pathological conditions that may lead to male infertility.

According to Dr. Ajit Vaze, a consultant urogynaecologist and fertility treatment expert, “The individual constituent herbs in Addyzoa has been extensively studied for their ability to make men produce healthy sperms, while also acting as anti-oxidants.”

He says further, “Addyzoa is effective in improving the semen quality by increasing the sperm count and enhancing sperm motility and morphology. Treatment with Addyzoa resulted in a larger increase in sperm count, while a significant increase of 1.5 to 2 times in motility was also observed with Addyzoa.”

He assures that Addyzoa is a better option for treating male infertility, as it also provides an advantage over Ubiquinone (a supplement usually prescribed by doctors) in terms of cost of therapy.

Female infertility

Among women, some of the causative factors for infertility include age. It is not unusual for a woman to delay having a child in modern society, and the reasons range from building a career and financial security, to marrying later in life.

Age

Experts say that for women, fertility declines with age, and this may start in the late 20’s for some people. However, they say, that is not to say that advanced age means that a woman cannot get pregnant, only that a woman’s chances of conceiving lessen with each passing year.

As a woman gets older, she may also have been exposed to several factors that can influence her reproductive system such as poor diet, infections or stress. As such, assisted reproductive techniques are becoming highly sought after by older women.

Abnormal menstrual cycle

This is a common sign of infertility to look out for. There are a number of reasons why women may be having abnormal periods and this does not always mean infertility, but the sooner a problem is addressed, the better. Symptoms may include irregular or absent periods, heavy and/or painful periods, any pelvic pain or discomfort in between menstrual cycles, etc.

Hormonal imbalances

These are also common signs of infertility. There are numerous symptoms that you may not relate to fertility. These may include premenstrual syndrome, weight gain, anxiety and depression/mood swings, headaches, facial hair growth, hair loss, fatigue, low sex drive, breast tenderness/lumpy tissue, nipple discharge, hot flushes, night sweats/insomnia, vaginal dryness, acne, oily skin or redness, puffiness and bloating, gallbladder problems like indigestion, pain under the ribs on the right hand side, light coloured stools, etc.

Infections

These may be causative factors of infertility and need to be diagnosed as soon as possible. There are many reasons for infections, ranging from being sexually-transmitted, a low immune system or complications post-surgery.

Again, like the male fertility issue, solution to female fertility challenge is on hand. During clinical evaluations of M2-Tone, a herbo-mineral supplement indicated in the treatment of female fertility challenge, it was discovered that it could help women in many ways, beginning with providing solutions to all sorts of menstrual problems.

According to Dr. Preeti Dubey, an Associate Professor at the Department of Obstetrics & Gynaecology, G.S.V.M. Medical College, Kanpur, M2-Tone is a comprehensive herbal supplement for menstrual disorders, and it is the most trusted and clinically endorsed formulation for Dysfunctional Uterine Bleeding and infertility.

He says, “M2-Tone has a potent pro-estrogenic agent which corrects estrogenic insufficiency and improves ovarian functions. The supplement maintains nutritional balance and improves endometrial health; it restores emotional balance by relieving anxiety and tension with its mild tranquilising agents.”

Another physician, Dr. Prasan Bhandari, a Medical Advisor with Charak Pharma Ltd., says “When M2-Tone is taken in conjunction with other detoxifying processes or regular exercises, it may just require about two to three dosages to see good favourable results.

“Many women who have successfully undergone M2-Tone treatment report that their menstrual cycles returned with 45-60-day cycle and step-by-step, they got adjusted to 28-30-day cycle, which is absolutely normal, acceptable and desirable.”

Both Addyzoa and M2-Tone are well tolerated, with little or no side effects recorded during clinical trials. And, like any other drug, doctors warn that you should consult your physician before you embark on any course of treatment.

Addyzoa and M2-Tone are exclusively distributed in Nigeria by Fidson Healthcare Plc.

Paincare offers free health care to Ojodu residents

0 0
Read Time:2 Minute, 11 Second

Residents of Ojodu community were offered free medical treatment last Saturday, as Paincare Outreach, a Non Governmental Organisation, in partnership with a Redeemed Christian Church of God Parish, House of Joy, visited the community.

According to members of the community, it was more than just another day, as they came out in large numbers to welcome the team of medical experts and christian preachers.

The event, which featured free distribution of food items and drugs by medical experts, was also used to spread the gospel of Christ to all present.

Speaking to journalists, the head of the medical team, Dr. Femi Ajagun, said that the programme was a medical spiritual outfit aimed at examining the health status of participants.

According to Ajagun, some of the major health conditions that were attended to during the medical session included hypertension, diabetes mellitus, upper respiratory tract infection, diarrhoea, malaria, typhoid and pneumococcal disease.

“For conditions that are beyond what we can attend to, or need further investigations, we refer to general hospitals, private hospitals or health care centres,” he said.

The Managing Director, Paincare Outreach, Mr. Peter Nwosu, said that the programme was just another step towards lifting more people out of the hold of the devil, who he said, imposed sickness and poverty to subdue human beings.

He explained that the initiative stemmed from a personal experience. “I did not grow up under the best conditions. It was difficult for my mother to pay for our medical bills. So I made a vow to God that if he blesses me in life, I would dedicate myself to making people happy by doing the little I could to lift them out of sufferings.” he said.

Nwosu disclosed that the organisation planned to extend the programme to the East. “We have a budget of N19m for this programme,” he added.

The House of Joy Pastor, Michael Ogbe, expressed his appreciation to the outreach for bringing such facilities to the community and reconciling lost souls with Christ.

He also expressed his joy over the large number of people that came out for alter calls and promised to do follow up on them.

Mrs. Patience Irehdia, who was excited about the items, appreciated the outreach for putting a smile on her face and that of her children.

Another resident, Miss Lilian Biese, urged churches to take interest in the welfare of the less-privileged people.

She said, “If all churches could duplicate what happened here, this world would be a better place. I really want to appreciate Paincare and RCCG for their kind gesture.”

Residents of Ojodu community were offered free medical treatment last Saturday, as Paincare Outreach, a Non Governmental Organisation, in partnership with a Redeemed Christian Church of God Parish, House of Joy, visited the community.

According to members of the community, it was more than just another day, as they came out in large numbers to welcome the team of medical experts and christian preachers.

The event, which featured free distribution of food items and drugs by medical experts, was also used to spread the gospel of Christ to all present.

Speaking to journalists, the head of the medical team, Dr. Femi Ajagun, said that the programme was a medical spiritual outfit aimed at examining the health status of participants.

According to Ajagun, some of the major health conditions that were attended to during the medical session included hypertension, diabetes mellitus, upper respiratory tract infection, diarrhoea, malaria, typhoid and pneumococcal disease.

“For conditions that are beyond what we can attend to, or need further investigations, we refer to general hospitals, private hospitals or health care centres,” he said.

The Managing Director, Paincare Outreach, Mr. Peter Nwosu, said that the programme was just another step towards lifting more people out of the hold of the devil, who he said, imposed sickness and poverty to subdue human beings.

He explained that the initiative stemmed from a personal experience. “I did not grow up under the best conditions. It was difficult for my mother to pay for our medical bills. So I made a vow to God that if he blesses me in life, I would dedicate myself to making people happy by doing the little I could to lift them out of sufferings.” he said.

Nwosu disclosed that the organisation planned to extend the programme to the East. “We have a budget of N19m for this programme,” he added.

The House of Joy Pastor, Michael Ogbe, expressed his appreciation to the outreach for bringing such facilities to the community and reconciling lost souls with Christ.

He also expressed his joy over the large number of people that came out for alter calls and promised to do follow up on them.

Mrs. Patience Irehdia, who was excited about the items, appreciated the outreach for putting a smile on her face and that of her children.

Another resident, Miss Lilian Biese, urged churches to take interest in the welfare of the less-privileged people.

She said, “If all churches could duplicate what happened here, this world would be a better place. I really want to appreciate Paincare and RCCG for their kind gesture.”
