Breakthrough For HIV Patients At Diagnostic Herbal Clinic

The Diagnostic Herbal Clinic, a certified alternative medicine facility located in Takoradi, with a new branch in Accra, is increasing its popularity in the treatment of chronic diseases with herbal medicine.

The clinic which is fast spreading its tentacles across the country has become a one-stop shop for people living with chronic diseases, and would want to try something aside orthodox healthcare in the country.

It has been treating patients with chronic diseases such as HIV, high blood pressure, among others.

The clinic branch in Accra is at Sowutuom, close to the Pentecost University College.

Diagnostic Herbal Clinic which was opened four years ago has particularly recorded impressive results in the treatment of HIV.

Patients who started HIV treatment at the clinic last year are beginning to see a decrease in their viral loads — the amount of viruses in their immune system, thereby, giving them succour.

One of the patients whose viral loads were 160, 577 cp/ml when she began her treatment at DH Clinic in June 2015 had it reduced to 46,386cp/ml by January 2016.

Test results of the viral load of the same patient in June 2016 further showed a drastic reduction to 722cp/ml.

“Since we started full operations of running our clinic most of patients have seen much more tremendous improvement in various treatments,” Dr Yaw Owusu Gyapong, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Diagnostic Herbal Clinic in Takoradi, said.

He said a lot of people from outside Ghana and Eastern Region have passed through the clinic whose treatment is 100 percent herbal medicine.

Dr Owusu Gyapong stated that the clinic uses massage— both manual and machine— and works to give the patients the right diagnosis through its sophisticated diagnosis equipment managed by certified doctors, nurses, scientists and herbal practitioners with longstanding practice.

“Diagnostic Herbal Clinic is the right place for your treatment and we have the professional hands to take good care of you,” he said.

The diseases which treated or managed at the clinic include HIV, hepatitis B, prostate enlargement, infertility, asthma, hypertension, diabetes, STIs, arthritis, malaria, vaginal discharge, menstrual problems, sexual weakness, among others.

Others are typhoid fever, jaundice, high cholesterol, liver disorders and kidney infections, ulcer, fibroid, numbness, mild stroke and managements of sickle cell.

Women in Saudi Arabia face flogging, jail for checking husbands' phones

Women in Saudi Arabia now face flogging and imprisonment if they check their husbands’ mobile phones without their permission.

According to The Independent, the ‘offence’ would be prosecuted as a violation of privacy because it is not covered under the country’s Islamic laws.

A legal adviser who described himself as a "member" of the Saudi government’s Family Security Programme is quoted as saying that women would be brought before the court if a lawsuit was filed against them.

The adviser though attempted to clarify what the law meant. “I would like to clarify that this subject involves the husband and the wife and it is a Ta'zir offence so it is possible that there is a flogging, a fine, imprisonment, just signing a pledge or even nothing. It is a Ta'zir offence not identified legally, so the punishment is dependent on the damage caused from it. If there was no damage caused, there could be no punishment.”

The issue has caused a storm on social media, with 35,000 tweets under a trending Arabic hashtag which translates as “Flogging of A Woman Checking Her Husband’s Phone”. Users have responded in different ways, with many decrying the proposed law.

The Family Security Programme is part of the Health Affairs branch of the Ministry of National Guard, and was established by Royal decree in 2005. This new ‘legal guidance’ runs contrary to King Salman’s much-publicised attempts towards reform in the ultraconservative kingdom.

Under Saudi law, a woman is deprived of several rights, including the right to drive a car and to leave the home without a male chaperone.

Three suffocate to death in Mukuru slums, Nairobi after inhaling carbon monoxide

Three people suffocated in their room in Mukuru slums, Nairobi.

The two women and a man are thought to have died after inhaling carbon monoxide gas from a jiko that was in their house.

The jiko had a mixture of beans and maize (nyoyo) when police arrived to pick up the bodies long after they had died.

Witnesses and police said the deceased are Uganda nationals and had been living in the house for the past few months.

Makadara OCPD Nehemiah Langat said they found a boiling mixture of beans and maize popularly known as nyoyo on the jiko.

“We suspect they died after inhaling carbon monoxide from the jiko. They had no physical injuries at the time the bodies were discovered,” said Langat.

Langat said they were called and informed of the incident long after it had happened.

The police boss said such incidents have been common in the area and urged residents to avoid keeping burning jikos in their houses.

He added they would carry out post mortem exercise on the body to further establish what caused the death in as much as the jiko is suspected to have caused it.

Last Sunday, Mammy Rugina, a sister to gospel musician Angela Chibalonza was found dead in a bathroom in Embakasi in a similar incident.

She had tried to use a burning jiko boiling a concoction of herbal medicine to treat a flu when she died in the bathroom.
