    Coronavirus Cure: Ooni of Ife Suggests Herbal Remedy


    herb for coronaviru

    While medical practitioners and scientists search for the solution to the global pandemic, Coronavirus, His Majesty, Ooni Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi of Ife has decided to look inward and focus on our traditional herbs.

    In a post shared on his official Instagram page, the Ooni said “a divine proclamation came out to the world last year June 6th, 2019, during the World Ifa Festival – Otura Meji. We foretold about the impending rage of this invisible pandemic war, but few heard us”.

    Herb Suggested by Ooni of Ife

    According to him, the following herbs are potent enough to heal anyone down with the virus:

    1. Boundary tree leaves (Botanical name- Newbouldia laevis, Yoruba – Ewe Akoko).
    2. Neem leave and fruits or Indian lilac (Botanical – Azadirachta indica, Yoruba- Ewe Dogoyaro).
    3. Onion (Botanical name – Allium cepa; Yoruba – Alubosa).
    4. Forest anchomanes (Botanical name – Anchomanes difformis, Yoruba –Ogirisako).
    5. Aidan fruit (Botanical name – Tetrapleura tetraptera, Yoruba – Aridan).
    6. African pepper/Ngero pepper/Guinea pepper (Botanical name – Xylopia aethiopica, Yoruba – Eeru or Erinje).
    7. Bitter leaf (Botanical name – Vernonia amygdalina, Yoruba – Ewuro).
    8. Sulfur (Yoruba – Iyin Ojo).

    In the video Ooni shared on both Twitter and Instagram, the narrator prescribed how the herbs can be used to “ward off negative energy” including COVID-19.

    Although there is no scientific proof that the herbs have or will work against coronavirus, Ooni insisted that “I have used it and also used it for some of the chronic Corona patients with testimonials.”

    He, however, did not say whether he tested positive for the virus and was healed using the herbs.

    The Ooni went on to state that he works very closely with all the nations of the world most especially the nation of Cuba.

    “Centuries go by, the nation of Cuba hold dearly the tenets of our ancestors and rely on the blessings of the mystery of nature, and as a result they have the best medical care in the world. They are the ONLY country that has come out boldly to help the world.”

    He also emphasized on the fact the ‘Almighty is above religion and he is moving now, the world will now respect nature WHOLLY’ and urged his followers to “remember nature does not need you, we all need nature to survive”.

    However, to this date, even though the president of America, Donald Trump tweeted that the combination of Hydroxychloroquine and Azithromycin is the right medication for curing coronavirus, the medical society is still debating and putting it to the test. Hence, no actual remedy so far.
