As the world turns attention to herbal medicine, a growing number of people from other professions are getting involved to meet the demand for alternatives medicine.
Dr Paul Torti, Managing Director of Alternative Therapies, Lagos, a journalist, joined the new generation of herbal practitioners after stumbling on a medical encyclopedia, published abroad that listed various diseases and the herbs that can treat them.
He majored in fibroid treatment and disclosed to that the result he is getting from his practice, as herbal practitioner specializing in fibroid treatment is quite successful and amazing.
His story: "I was trained as a journalist, and I worked briefly in some newspapers.
But two years ago I started a health magazine called Primehealth and began research on issues of health by interviewing medical doctors and health professionals. Along the line, I came across an encyclopedia published abroad, I saw some articles on health and I began to publish them."
"Looking at the medical encyclopedia closely and the way they explain health issues, I look forward to the time when our people will begin to articulate and put together information on health and document them like big encyclopedia. They treated health issues and pointed out herbs that can take care of some diseases, one of those diseases is fibroid. Fibroid is a serious problem now, the bleeding, the pains. I tried the herbs, a certain woman was having serious bleeding from fibroid; and I applied the herbs and the fibroid melted; the bleeding stopped and the pains disappeared. I have scan that was done before and after to show that it was authentic."
"Right now, there are so many other women who have been on this treatment and they are encouraged as they are taking the herbs. For instance, three weeks of the administration of the herbs before their menstrual cycle, the bleeding stops, the pains also disappear."
"After one month, they usually feel lighter because of the reduction of the fibroid. They are encouraged and are equally surprised that there is something that can reduce the fibroid. They are still on the treatment and we are looking forward to when the fibroid will disappear, depending on the size of the fibroid."
"I have women I have treated, like a woman who is at the top of one big media house in the country. The bleeding has stoped and the fibroid is reducing and she is happy. There is this woman whose husband is a medical doctor. He didn’t have a solution to it. I treated the woman. The bleeding also stopped and the fibroid is dissolving progressively."
"As a matter of fact, fibroid is a big health issue among women, because from my research 50 per cent of these fibroids grow back, doctors who want to be sincere with you, will tell you that fibroid can grow back after surgery. As a result, I have come across so many women who don’t want to hear about operation as a solution to the problem and the ones who have done operation before and it grew back, don’t want to treat it again through operation."
