MEDIFIC (Updated 05/12/2016)
FIRST AID FOR FLU & MALARIA
Medific is a bright morning star that guides you to detect the earliest signs of flu and malaria, to ensure adequate intake of fresh air and drinking water to fend off all their serious symptoms. I had invented a new procedure in 2002 that quickens recovery from flu, common colds, malaria and typhoid infections through ample intake of cool air and drinking water. We were recently recognized as Africa regional finalist in the global sports innovation competition held in Nairobi Strathmore University since ability of athletes to quickly recover from infections is vital for their performance. BENEFITS We train clients to detect earliest signs or symptoms of flu, colds and malaria to quicken their recovery from infections following an old saying ‘a stitch in time saves nine’.
BENEFITS AGAINST FLU
- First aid cuts duration of flu or colds by half through preventing all rough symptoms like; fever, blocked nose, runny nose, headache and cough. The nostrils remain dry throughout the period of flu/colds illness.
- It allows patients to interact freely, and communicate effectively with customers, coworkers and family. It spares one the guilt or shame of transmitting flu to others by preventing symptoms that transmit flu or colds.
- It saves working hours, and money that would have been spent on treating flu using expensive antiviral flu drugs. Nonetheless, people who can afford this antiviral drugs can maximize its effectiveness by using our knowledge on earliest signs or symptoms of flu.
- It can minimize incidents of sinusitis and otitis media as it prevents flu symptoms that block openings from the nasal cavity to the sinuses and middle ear to cause these infections respectively.
- It has a potential to minimize incidents of secondary infections like pneumonia and other flu complications like cardiac disorders that can cause death.
BENEFITS AGAINST MALARIA
- First aid quickens recovery from malaria by preventing all rough symptoms such as; fever, headache, nausea, vomiting and chills. It enables patients to carry on with their regular work while receiving treatment as outpatients.
- It saves money and working hours that would have been spent on hospital admissions or bed rest.
- It can sustain an adult for weeks until one gets safe standard drugs for curing malaria.
- Most importantly, it eliminates chances of death by preserving appetite, preventing dehydration and ensuring sparse malarial parasites in the blood.
A colleague who picked interest in making use of cool air to prevent those flu symptoms was also able to obtain the same results by simply following the guidelines that I had given him. I have applied first aid to effectively shorten durations of flu in over 25 incidents over the last 10 years. There is nothing magical about this solution. It is pure science; follow the same procedures to get the same results. Do not stick to Stone Age habits of coughing, sneezing with nasal discharge whenever you have flu or colds. Stop making people around you to feel uncomfortable whenever you sneeze or cough. Our solution is affordable, reliable and durable; one time purchase with lifetime benefits. Be the agent of light and modernity in your community.
The scientific rationale (logic) of first aid has been reviewed and appreciated by top health experts like; Prof. A K Prasad (Flu expert) and Prof. Steve Lindsay (malaria expert). GIST (Tech-I) committee of health experts praised this solution as a great idea with a huge potential. There is an ongoing process to form a public private partnership with the government of Uganda’s Ministry of Health to help in distributing our solution countrywide. I have already briefed officials concerned on the scientific basis and merits of our solution to their satisfaction. I also made a presentation on indigenous basis of aerotherapy in Africa to them.
SCIENTIFIC BASIS (RATIONALE) OF OUR FIRST AID PROCEDURES
Heat is a major cause of dehydration and swelling of the mucus membrane in the nasal cavity. Swelling of this membrane causes most of the sore symptoms flu and common colds, and other secondary infections or complications. Uninterrupted swelling of this membrane causes; sneezing, nasal congestion (blocked nose), and blockage of auditory tubes and openings to sinuses. The nasal cavity is well adapted to dispersal of heat from the body to surrounding air. However, nasal congestion reduces airflow that normally carries heat out of the body, which induces a runny nose to in a bid to control rising body temperature. The underlying objective of our procedures is to minimize heat inflow into the body while maximizing outflow of heat from the body. This objective prevents swelling of the mucus membrane to prevent incidence of all the sore symptoms of flu. Maximizing dispersal of heat from the body must of course be done within the limits of decency.
The crucial effect that cool air has on controlling body temperature is complemented by drinking water to prevent sore symptoms of flu and malaria. Drinking ample water upon detecting earliest signs or symptoms of malaria enables frequent urination and sweating, to eliminate excess body heat and thus prevents; fever, dehydration, headache and nausea/vomiting. Science literature indicates that malaria parasites produce sticky proteins on the surfaces of infected red blood cells (rbc), which causes these cells to stick to tiny blood vessels within body joints thus causing joint pains. Drinking ample water on time, increases the volume of blood plasma that keeps tiny blood vessels sufficiently dilated to reduce stickiness of infected rbc to these vessels, and facilitates their transportation to the spleen where they get destroyed. Timely destruction of infected cells in the spleen inhibits multiplication of malaria parasites in the blood, to keep them at very low levels that can hardly be detected by laboratory microscopic tests. I have applied first aid to effectively suppress malaria symptoms in 7 incidents of malaria with great success over the last 10 years until I could get proper medical attention from health professionals.
