An appeal has been made to medical practitioners to allow sickle cell and non sickle cell patients who cannot afford the cost of blood transfusion to have alternatives with medically tested and NAFDAC approved products like Mojeaga Herbal remedy to reduce the rate of mortality.
This appeal was made by the Managing Director of Mojeaga International ventures, Ojeaga Alugeh who disclosed in an interview with the Nigerian Observer that the Nnamdi Azikiwe Teaching Hospital, Nnewi is carrying out clinical trial on the efficacy of Mujeaga Herbal remedy for the treatment of pregnant women based on the publication from Hong Kong medical journal.
According to him,” irrespective of health challenges people are having, especially when they perform surgery, the product is very helpful. The healing process is very fast for anybody using Mojeaga because it has very high level of anti-oxidant inside.’
While condemning the attitude of some Medical doctors who are not too friendly when it comes to herbal products, he said the doctors are always invited to come and see what they are doing before criticizing the herbal products.
“We have even gone to University of Benin Teaching Hospital, UBTH where we met a Professor of hematology and the way he treated us was not encouraging. We even invited a sickle cell patient, the Public Relations officer of sickle cell club in Edo state, Mr. Charles Edigin to confirm
“When we told the Professor about the product he said he was very skeptical because that is what we native doctors claim about our products and we told him no, we did not come to beg for money rather we came to invite him to see what we are doing and perhaps he can make an input by research and any other way.
“The Professor said we should call Mr. Edigin to confirm if it can really treat sickle cell patients. I told him that in 2015 Mr. Edigin was a patient admitted in the UBTH, they did surgery for him and after the surgery his PCV dropped to twelve percent, he was almost dyeing and they gave him about six pints of blood and yet they could not help him and he had to call me.
“I sent him three bottles of Mojeaga and within three days of using it, the PCV rose to sixteen percent and he started eating and the vomiting stopped. I had to send him another six bottles and that was what he used in UBTH before they discharged him.
“I called the young man, a fifty one year old man who is very popular in Edo state. We went to him and he explained everything to the Professor that in the UBTH he was admitted and it was this product that saved him in 2015. I showed him the two lab results.”
“At the end of the day the Professor said to Mr. Edigin if he was sure that his kidney and liver are still working and if he was sure the product has not damaged his liver.
It was at that point I told him about my own son who used the product thirty one years ago. “My son’s PCV dropped to 12 percent 31 years ago and this product saved him. The results are with me. He called another Professor to come and see one magic that is happening. Which herbal on earth can do this?
In the words of the Professor: “even God cannot do what we say this product has done.” He said we should not give out the product and I told him it was certified by NAFDAC and that it is non toxic, and from then onward we took up the challenge.
According to Mr. Alugeh, “We went to Samuel Adegboyega University, Ogwa, to make a presentation, there, another Professor from University of Benin saw us after my son made the presentation. This is my son that the product saved and he invited us to see him.
“My son disclosed to him that even right now in the East, Nnamdi Azikiwe teaching Hospital , Nnewi, with other two teaching hospitals, they are carrying out clinical trial on the product on pregnant women based on a publication from Hong Kong medical Journal.
“The Professor then said why did we leave UBTH and go to the East and I said a prophet is not honored in his territory and they said we should come back and that is why we are back to UBTH,” he added.
He further disclosed that letters have been written to Edo state government about a year ago through the office of the Commissioner for Health informing them of what they are doing.
He however disclosed that one of the constraints being faced by the company has been finance and letters have been written to Edo state government about a year ago through the office of the Commissioner for Health informing them of what we are doing.
“The response we got was that they were going to contact NAFDAC to confirm what we are doing,” he added.
