A SEEKER of wellness

Mama Africa  is sick and getting sicker!
Millions suffer from cancer!
Millions have heart attacks!
Millions considered HIV positive!
Millions have tuberculosis!
Millions are affected with diabetes!
Malaria is the first leading cause of death!
And cases of epidemics are reported every year!
Mama Africa, is your behaviour malpractice?
Mama Africa,have you forgotten how you lived
before 1800?
Mama Africa,have you forgotten the healing skills 
you possessed?
Mama Africa,have you delibarately avoided your
healing skills?
Europe learnt about you with admiration and awe!

PS;Hats off to the chinese!!!They have completed their 
     hat trick in traditional medicine.But, alas,here in Africa
     ,it would be associated with witchcraft and mysticism!
