Martello Melville, chief executive officer of the Jah-Jireh Herbal health and wellness company, says the Government should examine all available nutritional treatment options in the fight against the coronavirus (COVID-19) as well as allow the proponents of herbal medicine to speak on the issue.
Addressing an online health seminar under the theme ‘Drink to life’, which was staged on Monday, Melville suggested that nutraceutical health, which involves the use of natural foods and herbs to treat disease, should be presented by medical authorities as a viable medical option.
“Most people cannot say how this COVID-19 vaccine works, but if herbs have been proven to work, why is it that we were not given a presence at the table? If we were in such dire need and people were dying, desperate, and seeking a solution, why is it that herbs or nutraceuticals were never an option? People have a choice, and it is their decision as to what they think is best for their own health and body,” said Melville.
