Over the years, Medical Doctors have been thought to believe that whatever can not be cured by orthodox medicines, cannot be cured at all. The Medical college curriculum makes no room for teaching in the natural world of herbs because they i.e. herbs are claimed to cure every thing imaginable and thus cannot subject themselves to scientific study; and yet most of the ingredients used in formulating orthodox drugs are taken from natural sources or patterned after natural sources in the synthetic manner. Much as orthodox Medical practice does not give room for experimenting with natural products, yet the Medical Doctor in practice should be a kind of encyclopaedia allowing his experiences to guide him rather than “rote”

It is a basic fact that what ever orthodox medicine cannot define its cause, it terms “idiopathic”

Orthodox medicine makes the Medical Doctor conservative. He is to ensure that a product does what the makers claim it can do before administering that to his patient; he is to ensure that the patient comes to no harm as a result of the medicament administration; but yet in his practice the Medical Doctor comes across certain cases that defile all medications and then get better and even cured with natural products. It is true that there are some health problems which orthodox medicines have no answer to.

When you encounter such a case – of recalcitrant or hydra headed medical problem or challenge which defiles all medications, what do you do?

Do you allow your patient to wallow in pains, anguish and misery, hopelessly watching you pass to the other side on daily basis, or do you close your eye and ask them to seek natural therapies?

It is a really difficult nut to crack; but yet it is not all that difficult.

Experience should teach every Medical Doctor to be forward thinking. A Medical Doctor should seek natural therapies or at least allow the patient to seek natural therapies for health problems that have defied drugs and other conventional treatment.

As we all know, some modern day drugs sometimes do more harm than good (those on cancer radiotherapy can testify to it) due to their side effects; whereas natural therapies “may be” without such deleterious side effects.

Finally a forward looking Medical Doctor should be able to recognize the basic and simple fact that “man can live healthier life without drugs if he minds his diet, his environment and his life style.”

We surely have one or two lessons to learn from the aged men and women of China.

We are in search of the forward minded Medical Doctor who though being conservative as a Scientist but is dynamically so.

TGIF - THANK GOD IT'S FRIDAY. What relief this day brings to the heart of men and women alike particularly those that are in white collar jobs

Waking up by 4.30 am in the morning, preparing to leave the house by 6.00am if one must make it to the office by 8.00 am considering the hold ups that bedevil the roads in most Nigerian Cities like Abuja, Lagos, Port Harcourt e.t.c; and then walking up and down the office corridors and actually seating down to work in the offices, usually take their toll on the individuals on daily basis. Thus Friday is seen as a day to actually exhale. In the Federal Capital and most other places, Friday is like a National day as we see workers wearing national dresses to work. Also it is a day when most workers close early in the guise of going for prayers. Friday has thus been turned into a half day kind of in most public offices.

For most guys and gals who like to go to church on Sundays but who like clubbing, Friday provides the opportunity to actually go clubbing to let the hair down and just "enjoy" whatever life has to offer. Thus a number of persons patronize the night clubs on Friday, so that they can have enough sleep on Saturday, to be able to prepare for Sunday service and the next week

So, while many people actually loathe Monday, but all are in agreement that there should always be a Friday; thus the expression Thank God it's Friday has come to stay

Whatever Friday means to you, remember to make it worth your while

But whatever you do, remember not to overdo it, a little to the right and a little to the left leaves the Centre secured

God Bless you richly

It is the 1st of June 2008. By this date, the year has apparently approached the mid section. That supposes that whatever we had planned to do this year should have been half done by now. But peradventure it is not so, don't despair, you still have 6 months to get them done.

As we enter this new month, it has become important for me to bring to your consciousness certain issues, that deal with the way we live our lives

What is your goal in life?, What are you looking up to achieving to know that you have arrived? Does it lie in the number of exotic cars that you own? or in the number of the cars? Does it lie in the mansions that you possess? or in their locations in the choicest areas of the big cities? Does it lie in the numerous business interests that you have, scattered across the length and breadth of the globe? Does it lie in the numerous degrees (honorary and earned) that you possess and in the achievements you have wrought with them? Does it lie in the massive wealth you have acquired for yourself and your great great grand children yet unborn? Does it lie in the name that you have made for your self? or in the way you have related to others?


So, as we enter a new month, do share with me, what your ultimate goal in life is. It surely would serve as a a good lesson to me and all others who blog with me.

Waiting to read from you

Have a very happy month

God bless you richly
