Gambian president to open herbal AIDS-cure hospital, Receives Criticism from westSubmitted by FreedomAintFree on Thu, 01/03/2013 - 13:08
Pretty interesting article. If herbal remedies can cure AIDS, which western medicine has been unable to tackle for nearly three decades, who knows what is next? Cancer?
Gambia is a small country in West Africa, with a population of about 1.7 million. Fortunately, Gambia has not been hit as hard by HIV/AIDS as other African countries, and only about 2% of its inhabitants are infected. Under its current president, Yahya Jammeh, Gambia has seen important public health progress, and now, Jammeh has proposed something that has managed to anger all Western medical experts: that AIDS can potentially be cured through natural herbal remedies.
Real cure or false hope?
In Banul, Gambia's capital, Fatuma and her 3 year old son Suleiman are both receiving a herbal concoction that has been hailed as an AIDS cure. "It's amazing. Two weeks ago, I was very ill, weak and couldn't eat without vomiting", she said.
Fatuma and Suleiman are not the only ones to see improvement thanks to the mysterious herbal cure. 54 year old Ousman Sow said he has been HIV positive for over 15 years, and had barely been surviving on anti-retroviral drugs until he was introduced to Jammeh's AIDS cure program. Within a month, Ousman gained 30 pounds and started feeling much better.
