The Power of Plant Medicine as a Cure for the coronavirus

The Power of Plant Medicine as a Cure for the Coronavirus

By Rev. R. Simone Lord, Naturopathic Doctor

Traditional medicine is more than the study of plants. It embodies a study of the whole person, mind, body and spirit through many modalities. Traditional medicine has its origins in Africa, India, China, even Germany, Costa Rica and many nations all have a rich history in traditional medicine. Knowledge of the plants used for medicine is often passed down from a grandparent who may have a love for identifying, growing and harvesting medicinal plants.

In my profession, there are naturopathic physicians, doctors of naturopathy, master herbalists, acupuncturists, iridologists and many designations of natural healthcare professionals around the world. I’m calling for us to unite and fight back by finding a plant to defeat the coronavirus.

I look at the news and I’m alarmed not just because of the coronavirus’s global shut down, but because there is no one talking about the power of plant medicine or traditional medicine.  Almost everyone is overlooking the plants. The leaves of the tree are for the healing of the nations. There are incredible movements for all things green. The WHO, World Health Organization, wants to work with the practitioners of natural medicine to integrate natural medicine with national healthcare system, according to their website.  Now more than ever, we need to work together to help our brothers and sisters internationally.

I would like to offer a plant to be tested that can defeat the coronavirus. This came about after I had read the report from a top virologist in Wuhan. She said it’s called corona virus because the bug looks like it’s wearing a crown  She was known as ‘The Bat Woman, because she had hunted down bats in China’s caves to collect their sample droppings for an antidote for SARS another corona type virus. (Source: Scientific Journal by Jane Qui on March 11, 2020.)

“Well good luck finding the bat that caused the coronavirus so we can get the antidote and put it into a vaccine for the world to be healed,” is what I was thinking. It led me to think that there is definitely a plant that could knock out the coronavirus.  I knew of one such plant and I quickly went to my juice bar and got some and brought it home for testing. I brewed a cup of loose tea with the herb. It worked fine, after 1 day, it knocked out the common flu. I then researched my mystical herb and found that it has been studied as having anti-viral properties, high anti-oxidants, anti-cancer, support for the immune system and many more wonderful properties.

I would love to tell you the name of the herb that can bring so much healing to the world. But the world is not paying attention and this essay would be ignored just as the leaves are. This is breaking news. The world has overlooked plant medicine for too long. We need a seat at the table to discuss the power in plant medicine. Please share this essay with everyone you know. Let’s join together to “heal our nation.” Revelation 22:2.

African-American Hero

How to Fight Disease & Be the Hero You Are Inside

Eric Adams is a hero to millions. Not only is he the Borough President of Brooklyn, NY, but he has a story to tell. He fought diabetes and won. And he is not the only person reclaiming their health. Many people have been fighting disease and winning by going the naturopathic way. The thought of being on dialysis or insulin for the rest of one’s life is not appealing to many who have chosen alternative medicine. Some choose alternative medicine by force when their insurance carriers drop them. Many others have decided to turn their life around by making strategic diet choices, incorporating juicing, leading a disciplined lifestyle and getting enough sleep, water and minerals.

“It is true that by choosing a plant based diet, many diseases can be reversed. Many people are not able to assimilate or break down animal protein and fat as well as others. Many people are dehydrated, constipated, have too much sugar in their blood, causing a thickening of the blood that is unhealthy. Sodas, white sugar, white flour, alcohol, drugs, too much milk and meat, shrimp and pork starts causing all types of problems within the body. The liver and kidneys get overburdened and often stress throws the body off balance and unable to fight the constant onslaught. Plants have natural antibodies to help the body fight. Nettle, dandelion, spinach, kale, broccoli, cucumbers, cayenne, turmeric, ginger; they all have healing powers.” Says Dr. Simone Lord, a board certified naturopathic doctor and author.

Dr. Lord is pastor of America’s first church and wellness center, Inspire NY located at 115-42 Sutphin Boulevard, in the heart of the developing mecca that is Jamaica, Queens. The wellness center offers iridology, naturopathic health consultations, massage by licensed massage therapists, herbology, steam detox therapy, reflexology and Reiki. The church offers a caregivers’ assistance program as well as a youth ministry program with music lessons for the youth, professional voice lessons and performing arts.

“It’s important for people to vent their emotions in a healthy way. People hold on to bad food, bad memories, bad break ups and they can’t seem to let go,” says Dr. Lord. “At Inspire NY, we help people to let go, sleep better, live healthier, better quality lives by offering them a listening ear, a good word, help with family issues, diet and lifestyle, engaging workshops and forums, and the opportunity and encouragement to turn their lives around for the better.”

On February 3, 2019, from 12 pm to 3 pm, the public is invited to celebrate Black History Month at Inspire NY and hear from an African-American hero, Eric Adams, who has reversed diabetes and is on a quest to help as many as he could to recover great health.
