Madagascar Tea

Updated: Dec 26, 2023

The recent Tweet with the Madagascar Government distributing herbal tea to fight and prevent COVID-19, I believe, is absolutely fantastic. It has been branded COVID-Organics (CVO) and its main ingredient is Artemisia, indigenous to temperate climates, commonly known as Wormwood. What I find of concern is that the World Health Organization is claimed to say “Do not self medicate”, which raises several issues. We look to WHO for guidance and support within the drug world and the medications that are required in order to help us get better, but also, their stating using herbs as self-medication confirms that herbs are medication.

Now I have not been able to find any information from WHO in direct relation to the Madagascar tea, the closest I can find is in “Q&A on coronaviruses (COVID-19)” under the question “Is there a vaccine, drug or treatment for COVID-19?” it states “While some western, traditional or home remedies may provide comfort and alleviate symptoms of mild COVID-19, there are no medicines that have been shown to prevent or cure the disease. WHO does not recommend self-medication with any medicines, including antibiotics, as a prevention or cure for COVID-19.” If the WHO are saying we should not self medicate with traditional remedies, because of the implications of what could happen, then I seek to provide clarity on the issue.

My knowledge and experience with herbs over the years there has grown, always researching an understanding how herbs interact with the body. I've been using herbs since I was a child because my mother is a big advocate of herbs and, to make you laugh, she used to be called “Strange and a witch” by those around her because she used to rely on herbs to help to heal us children, when we were ill, not necessarily running to the doctor for every drug that was prescribed. So not only have I used herbs all of my life, my mother has used herbs all of her life too, to help us heal and be well.

I was infected with the COVID-19 virus March 2020 and, using my science degree research skills, I decided to study the virus and use my herbal knowledge and skills to see what actually kills it, what can contain it and what can eradicate it from the body. I found several things to be successful, so the fact that the Madagascar Government has started to distribute a herbal tea, which can help, and they are having positive results already, in my opinion, is a massive step forward.

First what you need to be aware of is if you are already on medication, this is where self medicating can be risky. Herbs are and do have medicinal properties in them and you have to make sure that prescribed drugs, or over the counter drugs, have no contraindications connected to the herb you want to take and the drug that you are on. This is where the problems are caused, that what you are on already could potentially be of danger if you take additional herbs within your diet. The easiest way to see if the herbs will hinder your medication is to do a web search with the name of your drug then the word “Contraindications” and the name of the herb you wish to consume. If there is a contraindication you will find results, if not then it should be safe to take with the drugs that you have searched.

What has worked for me and my studies I have listed at the end, these can be added into your diet as food to make soup, stew, curry, tandoori, whatever you want to do. A little hint there, spices absolutely kills the virus. Observing the samples that I took from my infection and adding different herbs and spices to the samples, I saw the chillies literally break down the virus in around an hour, Jalapenos as well, the virus absolutely hates anything spicy.

So, we can heal ourselves guys, we can do it with our food by cutting out the rubbish and getting herbs back into our diet.

Here is a list of some other things that I found very helpful, just add them into your diet, you can find most of these in your supermarket.
