CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19)

What is Coronavirus?

Coronavirus is a group of viruses that can cause illness to people with flu-like symptoms, and acute respiratory symptoms. In 2019 a more dangerous type of this virus originated in China causing an outbreak of worldwide diseases. This particular Coronavirus is called “Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2” or SAR-COV-2. The disease or sickness caused by the virus is named Coronavirus disease 2019 or COVID-19. Because there is a worldwide outbreak of the infection it’s regarded as a pandemic disease.

Signs and Symptoms:

The signs and symptoms of Coronavirus disease resembles that of the common cold or the flu. After a person contracts the virus the symptoms don’t appear until after 2 to 14 days incubation period. At this time the patient may not be aware but will be spreading the virus to other people through air droplets or contacts. The typical symptoms are fever, cough, difficulty breathing, shortness of breath, tiredness, general body aches, sore throat and running nose. The symptoms could be mild, moderate or severe. If you experience any of the symptoms or has been in contact with anybody with a positive coronavirus test or have traveled to an area with an outbreak of the disease you need to contact your doctor and self-quarantine for at least 14 days.

Risk factors:

This disease is transmitted from person to person who are in close contact, through respiratory droplets from someone who has the disease when they cough or sneeze. If any surface is tainted with the virus and you touch it and then touch your mouth, nose or eyes you will contract the disease. If you live in an area with outbreak of the infection you have a high chance of getting the Coronavirus infection.

Complications:

Older people or any person with preexisting medical condition like diabetes, lung and heart disease, cancer, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and emphysema will suffer a more serious consequence. The complications of the disease are multiple organ failure, pneumonia and death.

Prevention:

The best thing we can do is to prevent the spread and contracting of the disease. Many government agencies, health departments and the Center for Disease Control (CDC) has all advocated prevention strategies for coronavirus (COVID-19). The following are the preventive measures that everyone has to practice.

  1. Practice social distancing of staying away at least 6 feet from other people. Because it is difficult to determine who already have the virus, a person may have it and not have any signs of sickness but will still be spreading it around unknowingly.
  2. Avoid mass gathering of people as in social events, celebrations, festivities or any occasion with large crowd of people, 50 people or more is unacceptable.
  3. Wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or use 60% alcohol-based hand sanitizers.
  4. Avoid touching your face, mouth, nose and eyes because you can get the virus in your hands and by touching your face it may gets into your mouth. The virus is known to last up to 72 hours on surfaces so can easily be picked up.
  5. Stop shaking hands and hugging people to avoid skin to skin spreading of infection.
  6. Cover your mouth and nose when coughing and sneezing to avoid air droplets.
  7. Clean and disinfect surfaces with 60% alcohol-based disinfectants. This includes counter-tops, doorknobs, telephones, computers, laptops, and anything you use regularly.
  8. Self-quarantine if you’re sick with the symptoms, wear mask and gloves. Call your doctor for proper medical assessment and stay home if necessary. Do not go to work or in close contact with family members because you will be spreading the infection to people in close contact.

Treatment:

There is no official FDA approved drug for treating COVID-19. Supportive care is recommended, get enough rest and adequate sleep, drink plenty of fluid, keep warm, and the use humidifier. The FDA has given emergency authorization for doctors and Pharmacists to dispense hydroxychloroquine or chloroquine in combination with azithromycin since the benefits outweigh the risks.

God’s Providence

“Do you understand what you’re reading? … “Well, how could I, unless someone guides me?” – Acts 8:30, 31
If you’ve been following the trend of things around you and the entire world you’ll realize that with God there’s no COINCIDENCES! Whatever it is that is happening God already knows about it, He’s omniscient. The world is now destabilized because of Coronavirus pandemic, in the late eighties it was HIV, fifteen years ago it was Ebola virus 🦠 then SARS 😷. There has been epidemic of measles, chicken 🐓 pox and all kinds of diseases and atrocities like the 9/11 and nuclear explosion. These are worldly events brought about by the ravages of sin. For the first time in our lives churches and places of worship are closed for the next eight weeks at least in Southern California. We can only worship via online streaming service. Many universities, professional sports clubs, and public events are shut down in the U.S and around the world. Today the United States 🇺🇸 and Canada 🇨🇦 agreed to close their shared borders. Many international airlines are now stranded because the U.S and other countries has banned foreigners from entering the country to avoid spreading of infection. Is the devil 👿 having his way? I don’t think so because he knows his days are numbered. He’ll put up his last fight but Jesus has already defeated him.
Are we to live in fear and tremble? Not at all because we have a living Savior Jesus Christ. “God is always providentially guiding our lives, and He desires our ultimate redemption” – Pastor Elizabeth V. Talbot
If you truly desire to do God’s will, you can be assured that He will providentially and clearly provide the guidance you need. We may be disappointed, discouraged, destabilized or whatever. But be rest assured that with God our assurance is guaranteed. Keep up the faith. There’s no coincidences with God, it’s all about His PROVIDENCE!

Coronavirus and Our sense of Religiosity

FYI: This articled was originally written by Ambassador Kenneth Nwachukwu and is being shared with permission.

CORONAVIRUS AND OUR SENSE OF RELIGIOSITY
Coronavirus, the lung-eating virus which made an insidious appearance in China a little more than two months ago is described as the worst challenge to the global order for more than two decades. Although its putative birthplace is in the bat-eating community of China, the offspring are all over the world. At the beginning the world paid little attention because it is China, and its problems are not ours; they can stew in their own juice.
But this initial reaction was both geography and science illiterate. It was geographically illiterate because no society today lives in isolation. China has the second strongest economy in the world and the Chinese are some of the most traveled people in the world. It was only a matter of time before the effect would coming knocking at the doors of self denying societies all over including ours.
It is scientifically illiterate also because China cannot cure this disease alone. It requires a global concert of scientific resources to find a cure. Or the virus will breach the thin social ramparts put up by countries in form of border controls. That unfortunately appears to have become the case.
Coronavirus has therefore put a lie to the vainglorious claims of countries to be able police their borders. China is in a virtual lock-down while the epicenter of the disease has shifted from China to Europe. Italy is reeling from the impact with 1000 fatalities. The entire country has become desolate. The Holy Father, Pope Francis has cancelled a number of church organized events, self-isolated when he took ill and counseled against the practice of Priests placing the elements in the mouths of communicants during the Holy communion.
Other countries in Europe have put in place various mitigation processes. Across the Atlantic in the US, there is panic in the land. Five states have pulled children numbering over 5 million from school. In sports and entertainment industries, the story is similar: Basketball season has gone into a hiatus. The same is true of the Major League Baseball (MLB). The opening of the first LPGA (golf) championship is on the ice; Formula One opening season in Australia has been axed.
These developments have been paired with the Donald Trump administration placing a ban on all movements into the US from 26 European countries. Many important personalities including movie stars, politicians and sports persons have tested positive and withdrawn from the society. All over the world the tendency is to limit social gatherings or to practice what is known as Social Distancing.
Alas the reality in Nigeria is different. According to health officials, Nigeria has recorded only two cases of Coronavirus: one index case, an Italian now in quarantine in Lagos and his contact.  Therefore, if that is to be believed, it is all clear in Nigeria. Our weddings continue to witness unprecedented numbers, Churches have intensified ‘peace offerings’ where unbridled handshakes are de rigueur. Our Mosques are not outdone in number of attendance. After all, Nigerians no dey carry last. Regardless of the faith, we simply press the flesh as we trudge on. One gets the sense that we are from a different planet or that we pretend to have a stronger faith than the rest of the world.
Another reason perhaps is that China is too far from Nigeria. Really? When Europe and America clacked their doors against immigrants from Nigeria they happily turned to China for their trade. Besides most of our imports have origins from China. Our businessmen and women breeze in and out from China with regular ease.
What is wrong with us? Is our reaction to Coronavirus borne out of stubborn ignorance or questionable religiosity? I hope the authorities will step in to prevent this auto wreck in our behavior or risk an apocalyptic situation. Beyond dispensing hope, authorities should come up with socially responsible conducts such reductions in crowd density, and  avoidance of handshakes. Indeed the Japanese head bows appears cool. ‘It is not my portion’, as many are wont to say in situations as this, must never be an option.

Excessive Urination: What’s the Problem?

If you have to urinate more than eight times during the day and wake up more than once a night to go urinate you are having excessive urination.

What is the cause of this problem?

There are many reasons why people have this problem. Some of these are listed below:

Urinary tract infection (UTI) or bladder infection

Use of diuretic medicine used to treat high blood pressure

Diabetes mellitus and diabetes insipidus

Prostate problem such as an enlarged prostate

Pregnancy

Stress incontinence

Interstitial cystitis causing pain in the bladder and pelvic region

Stroke and other neurological disease

Overactive bladder syndrome

Drinking too much fluid than your body needs

Artificial sweeteners, Caffeine, and alcohol use

Multiple sclerosis (MS) which causes bladder dysfunction

What are the Signs and Symptoms?

Frequency of urination more than eight times a day or waking up at night to urinate more than once.

Incontinence or not able to control your urine flow

Dysuria or pain/burning sensation during or after urination

Hematuria or blood in urine, the urine appears darker

Nocturia which is waking up often to urinate

Dribbling or urine continues to drip after urination

Straining which is having to squeeze to initiate urine stream

It is important for you to seek immediate medical care if in addition to the symptoms above you start having fever, abdominal pain, vomiting, fatigue, chills, back or side pain, bloody, dark or cloudy urine.

Prevention or home remedies: Watch fluid intake, modify your diet to avoid caffeine, alcohol, carbonated drinks, artificial sweeteners and spicy food. Eat more of high-fiber diet to avoid constipation which can worsen overactive bladder. Bladder retraining can help with the condition. This means holding urine longer than usual before going to urinate thus retrains the bladder to hold urine longer.

Medical treatment: The treatment will depend on the underlying cause of the problem. You should seek the advice of your personal physician who knows best about your condition.

Your Best Friend

Your Best Friend

A natural friendship involves loving and being loved. It means knowing that someone is on your side, wanting to help you, cheering you on, and always keeping your best interest in mind. A friend is someone you value, a comrade, a partner, someone who is dear to you, someone you want to spend time with, and someone you enjoy. You become someone’s friend by investing time in them and with them, and by sharing your life with that person.

Do you know God as your friend?

If we do not know God as a friend and if we are not confident that He thinks of us as His friends, we will be reluctant to tell Him what we need or to ask Him for anything. If we have a stiff, distant relationship with God, our prayers can be legalistic. But if we go to Him as our friend, yet without losing our reverence and awe of Him, our communication with Him will stay fresh, exciting, and intimate.

I encourage you to see God as your friend. Treat Him with respect and honor, but treat Him as your friend and learn to communicate with Him as openly and easily as you would with an earthly companion. He’s the best friend you’ll ever have.

“There is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.” #PROVERBS18:24

Steroids

Steroids

The word steroid may scare you because of one reason or another. Steroids in general means a lot of things to people based on what they’ve heard, their job or their lifestyle. In the public eye the word steroid has a bad rap for some reasons but many people still can’t explain why. What comes to your mind when you hear the word steroid? Do you know that steroids can be very useful when used appropriately? What do I mean by using steroid appropriately? Let me explain myself; Steroids are really chemicals, often hormones made naturally by the human body and they work to help the organs, cells and tissues function properly. There are available synthetic steroids which are commercially made unlike the natural ones produced by human body.

Steroids are generally classified into two types; you may have heard about corticosteroids and the anabolic-androgenic steroids. These are the two types known and I will explain the difference between them.

Corticosteroids are referred to as the “medicine” that fight inflammation in your body. They’re like your defense and fighter against any inflammation that attacks your body to make you sick. These corticosteroids are made in the labs but they do a wonderful job like the hormone cortisol. They basically stop the immune system process that trigger inflammation that causes human sickness. In medicine they can be used in treating asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), lupus, multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, eczema and other rash or skin diseases. Unfortunately, there are bad side effects that come from the use of corticosteroids. These side effects vary and depends on the dose used and how long a person was on it. Some of these undesirable side-effects are excess weight gain, puffy face, nausea, mood swings, insomnia, acne, thinning of skin, unusual hair growth, increased blood sugar. One of the serious side effects that deserves special mention is that corticosteroids will turn down your natural immune system if used for a long time. This will make you susceptible to infection because your natural immune system is weak to fight off and defend you against infections. If you’re on corticosteroid longer than three (3) months they will cause your bones to become brittle and susceptible to breakage, this problem is referred to as Osteoporosis. When steroids are used in children for too long it slows their growth and brings the risk of stimulating diabetes. After reading all these it’s scary to mess around with steroids without proper medical supervision.

Anabolic steroids are the man-made version of testosterone which is a male sex hormone that acts to help in building bigger muscles. Basically, anabolic steroids have performance and muscle-boosting powers that is why people misuse and abuse them. Unfortunately, the abusers are so ignorant of what they’re doing to their health because they take one hundred times (100X) the usual dose prescribed for medical problem. Their ignorance shows because they think more is better for them without any consideration to the adverse effects to their own health. Let’s consider some of the side effects of anabolic steroids: There are fluid retention, acne, blocks the body from making natural testosterone leading to smaller testicles with lower sperm count, infertility and breast growth. In women they cause irregular “periods” that changes and stops at random, development of male-pattern baldness, facial hair and deep voice. The consumption of very high dose will lead to mood swings, anger and aggressive behavior sometimes called “roid rage”. There is the possibility of liver, kidney and heart damage, increased low density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol which leads to massive heart attack. This can happen to anybody at any age so don’t abuse steroids, just think and be kind to your own health. Your life is very precious and worth everything to you and your family and friends to be wasting in the pursue of vanity and temporary satisfaction.

If you’re getting this information for the first time and you happen to be on steroids already there is an important warning for you now. Listen, don’t stop the steroid abruptly. Doing that will cause a major health problem for you. You will “crash” into restlessness, fatigue, mood swings, depression and other adverse effects. The way to stop the use of steroids is by tapering the dose down slowly over several days. You need to contact your Physician and Pharmacist who are knowledgeable about the appropriate way to taper and stop the use of steroids.

I hope the information in this article has helped educate you about the dangers of indiscriminate use of steroids. It is a very powerful anti-inflammatory agent that should only be prescribed for a legitimate medical use and only under the supervision of a trained medical professional.

Heat Therapy (Thermotherapy)

Heat Therapy

Nature has provided us many things to live a healthier life but we tend to overlook many of the available resources because of ignorance or our belief that science is better than nature. I’m not saying that science is not good but what I’m trying to emphasis is that nature is filled with many things that can keep us healthy. In the developing countries of the world many people still look for the things in “nature” to heal them even though some of them overuse natural products to their own peril.
Heat is something that doesn’t need to be described for anybody but do you also know that heat can be used to treat certain ailments? The use of heat for treating illness is known as thermotherapy. There is also a process call “Cryotherapy” which is the use of cold to treat illness. But in this article my focus will only be on thermotherapy which I already explained is using heat to treat illness.
Heat can be very therapeutic in certain conditions but we need to know which conditions because it is not useful for every kind of illness. There are two kinds of heat we’re talking about; dry heat and moist heat. How does heat work for the healing process? Heat can help in treatment of certain diseases by raising the body temperature of the affected area and thus improving blood circulation, dilating the blood vessels and improving the flow of oxygen and nutrients to thereby healing the damaged tissues. Heat also stimulates the sensory receptors in the skin and decreases pain signal transmission to the brain making the patient feel less pain. Heat therapy facilitates the stretching of soft tissues around the spine, connective tissues and adhesion and decreases stiffness while increasing muscle flexibility. A research was conducted that found patients with lower back pain reported significant less pain with heat therapy (Morteza, D., Farahbod, F., 2014).
When using heat treatment, it is important to remember to keep it warm and not hot temperature to avoid burning yourself or someone else. Dry heat comes from sources like heating pad, dry heat packs and saunas while moist heat are from steam towels, moist heat packs or baths. There is also professional heat therapy from ultrasounds which is also therapeutic. Heat treatment works best when used in combination with other treatments recommended by your doctor or physical therapist. It is better to have a sustained longer treatment until the pain or problem goes away. Each treatment should last at least 10 to 30 minutes.
What kind of condition is heat therapy good for? The major benefits are for osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, neck and shoulder pain, fibromyalgia, muscle pain, stiffness, back and shoulder pain, hip and foot pain, muscle tension, spasm.
What is heat treatment not recommended for? You should not use heat on open wound, bruised or swollen injury, people with diabetes, dermatitis, vascular disease, multiple sclerosis, and deep vein thrombosis.
Heat therapy is very inexpensive and convenience and it works if done consistently. But if it doesn’t seem to help you after several trials you should contact your personal physician for more evaluations of your medical problem.

The Lethal Pancreas

It is not my intention to discourage you with this story because I believe life needs to be enjoyed to its fullest. But I also like to be real and call it the way it is with factual information. This blog is motivated by what I’ve noticed going on recently within our community and healthcare in general. First of all, an important question needs to be asked; why should people lose their lives prematurely as if life is nothing to be tossed like garbage? Recently a 41-year-old woman lost her life, few years ago my coworker in her early fifties also lost her life and earlier this year a young man in his forties lost his life to the same condition. The common sickness among all of these people is that they were diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. Their death happened within few months just after their diagnosis without giving enough time for therapy. I would imagine some of you may’ve heard about or even know someone who died from pancreatic cancer shortly after the diagnosis. My investigation into this problem reveals a terrible scenario; with pancreatic cancer by the time doctors make the diagnosis the cancer has already advance to late stages.

Let’s see what’s happening with the pancreas which is turning into a “lethal weapon” for human lives. What is the Pancreas? The pancreas is a vital organ or gland about six inches long shaped like a thin pear lying on its side between the stomach and the spine. It is vital because of the important functions it performs in the human body. It releases enzymes that help us digest the food we eat and the hormones that control the sugar in our body. If your Pancreas is damaged you’re in big trouble because your system will not work properly leading to the demise of the body cells and ultimately death. 

What causes pancreatic cancer?

It is so unfortunate that despite the advancement in medicine and healthcare the cause of this cancer is still unknown but there are risk factors that may lead to the disease. The risk factors for getting pancreatic cancer are the following:

  1. Genetic – This is related to your family history. It is not absolute that if you have family history of pancreatic cancer you will get it but just be aware that family history gives you a higher probability than a person who doesn’t have the family history. When we speak of family history it means a member of your immediate family being diagnosed of the cancer in the past. It is also possible that with passage of time people may not even remember or be aware of family history through the ages, that of great grandparents, distant uncles, aunts, et cetera.
  2. Diabetes – Are you diabetic or prediabetic? That is a risk factor implicated.
  3. Chronic inflammation –  Pancreatitis or chronic inflammation of the pancreas predisposes an individual to pancreatic cancer.
  4. Obesity – If you’re overweight or obese that is a high-risk factor.
  5. Smoking- Are you a smoker? Just be aware of the link with pancreatic cancer which is not good.
  6. Old age – This is a risk we can’t avoid. Pancreatic cancer affects older people over 65 years old than younger people.

Signs & Symptoms: The following are the things that may indicate the possibility of pancreatic cancer. Please know that some of these signs and symptoms are also implicated in other disease conditions.

  1. Loss of appetite with weight loss for no reason – You chronically don’t feel like eating and you’re losing weight without even trying.
  2. Blood clots – Whenever you have blood clot that is not normal so it needs to be checked out by qualified medical professional.
  3. Fatigue – Are you chronically feeling tired? A lot of things may make you feel this way so it is important to know the reason especially if the fatigue lasts longer than normal.
  4. Pain in upper abdomen radiating to the back – This unusual pain is a bad sign that requires further evaluation.
  5. Depression – Being depressed is not without a cause including possible pancreatic cancer.
  6. Dark urine – Your urine should never be dark in color, it could be a bad sign of a major illness.
  7. Yellowing of skin and the whites of the eyes – This is called jaundice and a possible sign of a damaged pancreas.

Prevention: These are things that are recommended for you to help prevent pancreatic cancer.

  1. Stop smoking – Despite all the warnings do you still smoke? Here’s another reason to stop smoking; it helps to prevent all kinds of cancer including pancreatic.
  2. Maintain a healthy weight – Since overweight is a risk factor it makes sense to reduce weight and keep a healthy weight through exercise.
  3. Healthy diet – Watch what you eat, add more fruits, vegetables and whole grain in your diet.
  4. Regular medical checkup – If you’re missing this life-saving responsibility you owe it to yourself to have annual medical checkup with your personal physician. This allows your doctor and you to monitor any changes in your health and help in early detection of any illness including pancreatic cancer.

Americans With Disability Act – ADA

What is the Americans with disabilities act (ADA)?

It is very important that everyone becomes aware of what this law entails. I believe it is a responsibility and a civic duty for all Americans to be treated equal without regard to their physical or mental health conditions. In a nutshell the ADA or Americans with disabilities act is a civil rights law that was passed and became effective in 1990 which prohibits discrimination against people who are disabled in all areas of public life, jobs, schools, transporations, etd.

Question: 

The ADA creates a protected class called “qualified individuals with disabilities”. What does this phrase means and how does one qualifies for protection. 

Response:

There are many people who are disabled with one ailment or another but who can still be productive if given an employment opportunity. Disability here is defined under the ADA rule to include: Physical or mental impairments that substantially limits one or more major life activities, a record of such impairment as well as being regarded as having such an impairment (Walsh, David J., 2012). 

The ADA act is to protect the disabled individuals from discrimination. There are important things that need to be met for the ADA act, first the person must be disabled and fall into the definition of disability as stated above. This implies that the persons have a physical or mental impairment that greatly limits one or more major of their life functions, they have a record of impairment or they are regarded as having an impairment.  

When the individuals have been established as disabled then they also need to be qualified for the job they are seeking. This implies that they are able to perform the essential functions of the job they are seeking with or without reasonable accommodation by the employer. A qualified individual with disability should satisfy the skills, education, experience, and other job-related requirements for the job held or sought (Walsh, David J., 2012). It is important to know that a disabled person is regarded as qualified even if he/she cannot perform all of the job functions as long as they can accomplish the essential functions of the job. The unessential functions of the job are irrelevant as far as the ADA law is concerned. If the employer is to provide accommodation for the disabled employee, the accommodation should be reasonable in that it shouldn’t cause the employer undue hardship.

The last important thing that needs to be satisfied is that the disabled person is not a direct threat to their own health and safety or that of other individuals while performing the job they are hired. Any threat that cannot be eliminated by reasonable employer accommodation is not considered qualified.
