People in rural Kenya say they’ve discovered a medicinal way to treat chronic pain by using their herbal medicine to treat headaches, nausea and coughs.
“I am a herbal medicine person, but I don’t know how to use it,” said Dr. Rama Mahajan, who treats patients in the eastern part of the country.
“But I can’t do anything else because it’s so simple.”
He said the use of the herbal remedy was a way to address the symptoms of chronic pain.
“In rural Kenya, I see people suffering from chronic pain,” he said.
“We are all suffering from pain and we can all relate to each other.”
Mahajin is one of the doctors who has used the herb to treat patients in Kibera.
He said his treatment has helped some patients overcome the pain of chronic back pain.
Dr. Mahajun was born and raised in Kenya and is a professor of psychiatry and clinical medicine at the University of Nairobi.
He says his work in Kenya began in the 1980s, when he became concerned about the quality of the medical care in the country and decided to seek help from his colleagues.
“They were asking me to prescribe herbal medicine because they were suffering from the chronic pain and I was suffering from it as well,” he told CBC News.
He had started using the herb after seeing a friend use it to treat her pain.
His friend told him that she had found that using the herbs had improved her pain in her back.
“So I went to her home and asked her to do the same,” he recalled.
“And after she did it, she was able to do it and then she was feeling better.”
The herb has since helped more than 300 people in Kenya.
“The herb works very well for a number of ailments, and is effective for treating headaches, migraines, back pain and chronic fatigue, too,” Dr. Mohamad said.
Dr Mohamamad is the president of the Kenya Medical Association, which is in charge of prescribing the herb.
The association, which has more than 50,000 members, says its members recommend the herb for the treatment of chronic headache, migraine, arthritis, arthritis and chronic pain in addition to back pain, back spasms and other illnesses.
It has also published a pamphlet called “The Good and The Bad of Herbivory.”
“The herbal medicine is used to treat various ailments in Kenya including chronic pain, arthritis in addition, pain from various chronic diseases and illnesses, fibromyalgia and psoriasis,” the pamphlet says.
The pamphlet was published last week in the Journal of Traditional Chinese Medicine.
Mahama Mahafy, a consultant and president of The Herbal Medicine Association of Kenya, says the herb has helped many patients.
“There are more than 5,000 patients in our association, and we are now looking for more patients,” he says.
“One of our main goals is to help people who are suffering from debilitating pain, and so it is helpful to help them take advantage of the herb.”
Dr. Massey Mahafyan, the chief of the medicine department at the National University of Kenya (NUKE), says it is important for doctors to understand the medicinal properties of herbs.
“Many people who go to the herbal medicine market in Kenya, and some of them are doctors, have no idea what the herb is,” he explained.
“It is a new thing to them, and it is very different from what they have heard about traditional Chinese medicine, which does not have such a clear description of the medicinal effect of the herbs.”
I think it is really important for them to be aware of the properties of the plants.
The herbal medicine has a long history in Kenya,” Dr Mahafiy said.
He believes the herbal product could have other benefits, too. “
To be able to give advice to patients, we have to make sure that they know the medicinal benefits of the plant,” Dr Massey said.
He believes the herbal product could have other benefits, too.
“You can use it for treating a cough, for example, and you can also use it as a cough medicine,” he added.
“If you use it in combination with another medicine, you can treat different conditions in a similar way.
And then you have also to be cautious about the use, because then you are not taking into account the effect on the body,” Dr Maayyum said. “
When you use these herbal medicines you have got to take care not to give them too much, too soon.
And then you have also to be cautious about the use, because then you are not taking into account the effect on the body,” Dr Maayyum said.
His colleague, Dr Masafyum, said the herbal products are not used for all
