All Praise is due to Allaah who gave us the Deen of Islaam and perfected it for us until the day of Qiyaamah. All praise is due to Allaah who sent our Noble Prophet Muhammad (SAW) as a mercy and guidance for all mankind.
For the past ten years I have been practicing 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 100 thousand people in a very 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. It is also noteworthy to mention that Prophetic Medicine is superior to orthodox medicine and all other forms of medicines not only because of its holistic nature, but also because of its preventive measures and harm-free cure to all diseases. It is no more a news stating that the orthodox drugs come with devastating side effects.
Anyway, 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.
Meanwhile, out of hundreds of Prophetic/Natural herbs, The Great BLACK-SEED stands tall. 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 in 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 immune system in a way that will help the body fight all form of infections and viruses, including the COVID-19. Hence, I advise taking a spoonful of black seed early in the morning to ensure healthy life with the body immune boosted. Black seed was recommended by Prophet Muhammad 1400 years ago in his divine wisdom, he said: “There is healing in Black Seed for all diseases expect 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. A spoonful of black seed oil an hour before breakfast daily is all you need to maintain a perfect immune system. And finally, It is worthy to note that the United States also granted patents to black seed as an immune boosting and cancer-inhibiting herb. Let me pause here, to be continued later…
