President Yahya Jammeh, the Gambian on Thursday started the treatment of 55 people suffering from high-blood pressure (or hypertension), another killer-infection in the country.
The patients, who comprised 14 men and 41 female, assembled at Kanilai Village, the birthplace of the Gambian, for the treatment.
President Jammeh added that he is very certain that he can cure the disease.
The Gambian leader then pointed out that “this medication is for high-blood pressure only, but can cure other things in peoples’ bodies. He said he did not give the medication to patients to take homes, as there are people who may try to put something in the medication so that if the person drinks it and die, they will say, it is the President’s medicine that kills him”.
“Some people are very careless and may not take good care of the medication. And if they are allowed to go with it, someone can put something in it, which you may not know. So, I don’t give the medicine to patients to take it to their homes,” he stated. However, he disclosed that he used to give the medicine to people to take it him. “You take the medication once and it will be out of your bodies. I am sure the treatment is very effective and I am certain I can cure it,” he affirmed.
He further advised the people to go to old diets, and then noted that patients should try to control their diets by reducing things like salt, jumbo, mayonnaise, among other things.
Shortly, after their medications, the patients’ blood pressures were checked, showing that it’s dramatically dropped, compared to the time before they took the herb.
