Second HIV Herbal remedy discovered in Ndola

A Ndola based herbalist has appealed to government through the Ministry of Health to consider carrying out clinical trials on various HIV herbal remedies available in the country.

ZANIS  reports from Ndola that Howard Maila, founder of the Mailacin HIV remedy said this in an interview this morning.

Mr. Maila, who claimed that his drug cures HIV said there was need for government through the Ministry of Health to consider carrying out clinical trials on herbal remedies such as Mailacin, Sondashi Formula and Mayeyacin by using a larger sample of people living with HIV.

He said medical personnel in the country should show interest in indigenous local products and not to limit their expertise to Anti Retro Viral (ARV’s) therapy only.

“Medical personnel should show interest in indigenous and local products in order to promote security in national provision of health care instead of being complacent with ARV’s” he said.

Mr. Maila emphasized that government departments such as the Tropical Disease Research Centre (TDRC) should invest in herbal remedies research and not to let foreigners spearhead such research.

The Sondashi Formula by the former Minister now opposition leader Dr. Ludwig Sondashi is reported to have been recognized by the World Health Organisation (WHO )  but was awaiting approval by government.

Meanwhile a Luanshya based man who claims to be improving after commencing on Mailacin has advised government to help local herbalists by having their drugs tested for efficacy.

Mr Venon Shamboze explained that in 2010 he was very sick and did various tests at the University Teaching hospital where he was given medication but that the situation was getting worse by the day, until he commenced on Mailacin.

“I was very sick in 2010, I was just lying in bed. I had sores all over my feet, I did a lot of tests at UTH and I was given a lot of medicines but things were just getting worse. But when I started taking Mailacin there has been a lot of improvement, as you can see I can even walk now,’ he said.
