Health and Wellness with Musimboti

Spiked Online Media caught up with the founder of Musimboti African Medicine, Mr. Morgan Zimunya who shared his perspectives on health and wellness below:
According to African healing basics, conditions like cancers BP, sugar piles, kidney problems, and STIS are just symptoms. When African people visit traditional healers, they just complain about their bodies being not well. Throughout Africa. However as experts in traditional medicine, our approach to healthy is holistic. We believe that the mind, body, spirit and soul produce similar symptoms with physical ones. So we treat everything. The results are amazing!
The problem of piles is not  disease but just a symptom of other underlying problems in one’s body. The body is like a machine that needs regular service. If service is not done the lifespan is shortened.  The mechanics are usually the elders. They do this by following traditional principles /culture passed down generations after generations. This knowledge is thousands and thousands of years old.
Our ancestors used to live up to 900 years or more. They knew how to look after their bodies because God gave this knowledge when he created him mankind. God taught mankind how to use herbs and good food.tan dose not want use to know this.
Chlamydia is caused by the bacterium Chlamydia trachomatis.  The disease infects up to 100 million people each year. Chlamydia is a bacterial infection that can be spread through unprotected vaginal, oral or anal sexual contact.  This infection is easily spread because it often causes no symptoms and may be unknowingly passed to sexual partners. In fact, about 75% of infections in women and 50% in men are without symptoms. It is sometimes called ‘The Silent Infection’
But when symptoms do occur, they are usually noticeable within one to three weeks of contact and can include the following:
 Abnormal vaginal discharge that may have an odor.
 Bleeding between periods.
 Painful periods.
 Abdominal pain with fever.
 Pain when having sex.
 Itching or burning in or around the vagina.
 Pain when urinating.
 Pus or milky, cloudy or watery discharge from the tip of the penis.
 Pain, discomfort or a ‘burning sensation’ when urinating.
 Inflammation, tenderness, pain and possibly swelling in and around the testicles.
 Burning and itching around the opening of the penis.
The symptoms of chlamydia aren’t limited to the genitals as chlamydia can also occur in the throat, eyes or rectum, depending on how it is transmitted, causing:
– Rectal pain, discharge and bleeding
– Conjunctivitis (Eyes)
– Throat infection
– Chlamydia can also cause a condition called Reactive Arthritis. This is when there is inflammation that affects the eyes, joints and the urethra. The knees, feet, toes, hips, and ankles are also commonly affected.
If you do not get treated for chlamydia, you run the risk of several serious health problems.
 If left untreated, chlamydia infection can cause #Pelvic Inflammatory Disease, which can lead to damage of the fallopian tubes or even cause infertility
 Untreated chlamydia infection could also increase the risk of #Ectopic pregnancy
Furthermore, chlamydia may cause #Premature births
The infection can be passed along from the mother to her child during childbirth, causing an Eye Infection, Blindness, or Pneumonia in the newborn.
 If chlamydia is left untreated, it can become a more severe infection that can affect the whole of the male reproductive system, which can affect #fertility in the long term as it can affect from the testicles to the tubes that transport sperm. Effects of chlamydia on male reproductive system include conditions:
– #Nongonococcal Urethritis(NGU) an infection of the urethra
– #Epididymitis: an infection of the epididymis: the tube that carries sperm away from the testes
– #Proctitis: an inflammation of the rectum!
 #Erectile dysfunction – one of the complications of chlamydia is ED. However, this tends to be the result of chlamydia infecting a man’s prostate and causing #Prostatitis and it’s not uncommon for men with prostatitis to also have #ED.
