As the second wave of Covid-19 rages on, the herbal medicine topic has resurfaced, especially after Kenyans rushed into buying lime and ginger.
“People should stop joking about Covid-19. It knows no class, no title, and no name. It is there, sweeping across countries and continents. It is all about following the Covid-19 protocols, but most importantly, taking care of your immune system,” says Dr. Henry Wangila, from Bungoma Hospital.
As the year 2020 was melting away, Kenya received two Chinese herbal medicines; The Healthouself formula 3 & Healthouself formula 5. Although the two are meant to treat and prevent such illnesses as viral pneumonia, their launch was timely, coming at a time the country was struggling with the Covid-19 pandemic.
“Various countries have also used the Drugs as complements for the fight and containment of the COVID 19 Disease,” said XRP Medical Kenya Limited, a representative of global Chinese manufacturer Jiangyin Tianjiang Pharmaceutical Company limited. “Many countries have now adopted and implemented the use of these medicines.”
According to XRP, the Global acceptance of the Healthouself Formula 3 and Healthouself Formula 5 is evident of the positive results of these Herbal Medicines in the fight against Viral Pneumonia Infections and also with help in Boosting Immunity.
“Chinese herbal medicines now available in Kenya have passed rigorous clinical trials and certification in China, and also went through normal certification at the Pharmacy and Poisons Board,” added the company in a statement.
The beauty of the two herbal medicines is that one does not need a prescription from a doctor to use them. The two can be purchased from the XRP Medical Kenya site, online retail outlets such as Jumia, and local pharmaceutical distributors.
As the second wave of Covid-19 rages on, the herbal medicine topic has resurfaced, especially after Kenyans rushed into buying lime and ginger. It is believed that lime and ginger has the potential to improve the immune system of the body.
What people don’t know is that Kenya has been lucky to have certified herbal immune boosters as well as one that treats viral diseases such as pneumonia. There has been an increase in cases of pneumonia in recent months.
