Today the leaves and pods of the Senna plant are important ingredients of laxatives sold in most pharmacies. It is a recognised cure for constipation which begins to work 10-12 hours after ingestion. It detoxes the body and cleanses the colon. Sihab Al-Badry Yassin a researcher in Egypt compiled a chemical analysis proving the advantages of senna. In it he shows how senna cured a patient who had bacteria in the stomach that was preventing iron absorption in his body. He was treated with cupping and Senna as a detox to cleanse his stomach and colon. For further reading please refer to his book “Medicating with Senna, A prophetic way of life”
Ascariasis is transmitted with the aid of using unintentional ingestion of ascaris eggs via infected meals, water or soil. Once the eggs are swallowed, they’re surpassed into the gut in which they hatch into larvae. The larvae migrate via the frame and into the bloodstream in which they are able to reason extreme coughing and wheezing. The larvae are subsequently swallowed and go back to the small gut in which they mature and lay eggs from time to time as much as 240,000 in line with day. Ascaris eggs are surpassed into the feces and incubate withinside the soil for at the least weeks earlier than the cycle starts offevolved again.
Pertussis, also known as whooping cough, is a highly contagious respiratory disease. It is caused by the bacterium Bordetella pertussis. Pertussis is known for uncontrollable, violent coughing which often makes it hard to breathe. After cough fits, someone with pertussis often needs to take deep breaths, which result in a “whooping” sound.

The case was that of a woman with severe PPH for whom Dr.Victor Nwatu had earlier done uterine artery ligation for the patient. However, the bleeding persisted and Dr.Esa Oga had to perform hysterectomy (assisted by Dr. Victor Nwatu). The plan to perform hysterectomy was discussed at the morning meeting(as a case of uterine atony) but little concern was placed on the surgical presentation of Lassa fever. Eventually, the patient died. Both surgeons later took ill. Dr Victor travelled back to his family at Abuja from Lafia and was managed as a case of malaria. He eventually died on the 5th December,2021 at the age of 43 and survived by his wife and four children.This prompted a review of the corpse and the diagnosis of Lassa fever was confirmed on the 6th December,2021.
Enuresis is the clinical term for bed-wetting. It is the involuntary urination during sleep after the age four or five when a person should be able to control the bladder. Infants and children’s will do unintentional urination, it is more normal for them. Many children’s achieve daytime control but not in the night time. The bladder control varies depending upon age. Some parents expect dryness at an early age. When the child is capable of holding the bladder but urinates unfortunately while sleeping is called nocturnal enuresis.
Acute lymphocytic leukemia (ALL) is a type of cancer of the blood and bone marrow — the spongy tissue inside bones where blood cells are made.The word “acute” in acute lymphocytic leukemia comes from the fact that the disease progresses rapidly and creates immature blood cells, rather than mature ones. The word “lymphocytic” in acute lymphocytic leukemia refers to the white blood cells called lymphocytes, which ALL affects. Acute lymphocytic leukemia is also known as acute lymphoblastic leukemia.
Hepatitis B (Hep B) is an infection of your liver. It can cause scarring of the organ, liver failure, and cancer. It can be fatal if it isn’t treated. It’s spread when people come in contact with the blood, open sores, or body fluids of someone who has the hepatitis B virus. It’s serious, but if you get the disease as an adult, it shouldn’t last a long time. Your body fights it off within a few months, and you’re immune for the rest of your life. That means you can’t get it again. But if you get it at birth, it’ unlikely to go away.
In a normal circumstance, RBCs resemble discs in shape, thus give them the flexibility to travel through even the smallest blood vessels. However, when this disease occurs, the RBCs have an abnormal crescent shape resembling a sickle. This makes them sticky and rigid and prone to getting trapped in small vessels, which blocks blood from reaching different parts of the body. This can cause pain and tissue damage.
