#iPGN: Ewedu Will Prevent and Cure Ebola – Prof Ositelu

A consultant at LUTH in Idi Araba, Prof Adebukola Ositelu has said Ewedu (known in English as a Long-Fruited vegetable), has the potency and capability of preventing and maybe curing the Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) by boosting the immune system.

This disclosure was made known during the annual African Traditional Medicine Day organized by the National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC) on Thursday, September 4 at Ikeja, Lagos.

Adebukola Ositelu, a professor of ‎Ophthalmology at the University of Lagos, Akoka (UNILAG), added that the vegetable could also get rid of the virus in the case of an infected person.

For treatment:
she said the Ewedu should be rinsed thoroughly with liquid vinegar. Then it should be blended and cooked with drinkable water, without adding salt or potash (locally called akaun) or any other ingredients.

For prevention:
take a 25cl or half a tumbler measure once a week, first thing in the morning before any meal, while those already infected should take it every morning for seven to five days.

However, she noted that chances of being cured by an intake of Ewedu when a victim has gotten to the stage of vomiting was low, but could still be administered.

Following the first Ebola outbreak reported in Nigeria, reports went viral that bitter kola could cure the ailment, Prof. Onyebuchi Chukwu however debunked the report, saying there was no scientific evidence of Garcinia kola curing the virus.

After that came the “hot-water-and-salt” Ebola cure rumour which also went viral and some Nigerians, trying to avoid being infected with the Ebola virus ,decided to adopt the rumour. As a result of this, six persons were hospitalized in Makurdi, Benue, after they bathed with and drank salt water to avert the dreaded disease. Some lost their lives due to too much intake of salt in Plateau State.
