A disease emanating from a little town in Nigeria many years ago (1969) has over the decades become a very huge health issue. The disease was discovered when two missionary nurses died in Nigeria.

Lassa fever is an acute contagious viral disease of central western Africa, characterised by fever and inflammation and muscular pains and difficulty swallowing.

How to naturally deal with, prevent and even reverse Alzheimer’s disease

The ‘twin’ words - senility and dementia are recurrent health issues associated with Alzheimer’s – a disease that most people growing into the senior citizen zones tend to dread.
