The Toxic Side Of Self-Development

In the last 2019 trauma conference, I wanted people to think that the way I am handling myself after a painful loss is now better than before. I decided to forward to visualizing my ambitions and goals. I started reading a lot of books, I also managed to eat healthy foods, and I tried exercising more. I felt more confident and motivated compared to the last time I checked myself. I told myself that this is it. I am now progressing and developing by taking positive actions. Everything was perfect. That was at least what I thought.

The world of self-development already changed a lot of things in my life. However, contrary to what other people think, it is not butterflies and roses. Self-development also has its glaring issues that I had to overcome face-to-face, and it is not easy. Sometimes, instead of things motivating you, self-help can destroy your emotional and mental capabilities. That is because of the process of forcing yourself to become better even if you already tried enough. You will still want more because you do not understand the level of contentment and satisfaction you have had to experience. Therefore, even if you focused on doing productive things in life, you still end up empty and mind-boggled with all the pain and suffering from the past.

Improving your life after a traumatic situation is entirely challenging. That is especially when you want to prove something to yourself. You may understand the necessary actions you have to take to achieve overall improved health. But you also need to consider the process of maybe giving up and changing everything for the sake of creating a better you. There are no short-cuts in self-development, and that is the first thing you should need to consider. After understanding that, that is the time you can slowly begin the process of altering your life.

 

Madagascar Herbal Remedy That Promises To Cure COVID-19

After the Coronavirus outbreak, medical experts in the pharmaceutical fields all over the world are trying their best to come up with a cure. Whether it can be a vaccine or any other type of drug. However, since no one expects the fast-approaching spread of the diseases, an expert can only contribute to the study of the cause of the virus and compare it to the previous ones that affect lives in the past years. However, to every country’s different testing and experiments, one country claimed to have found a cure.

Will It Be The One To Stop COVID-19?

Madagascar’s President Andry Rajoelina, along with the country’s Institute for Applied Research (IMRA), recently unveiled a cure to the Coronavirus diseases. COVID-Organics, or most known as CVO, is a bottled drink derived from Artemisia plant that widely grows in Madagascar. It is a plant used for a wide range of medicinal purposes across Africa’s country. In some studies, other species of the said herbal plant proved to contain anti-malarial properties as well.

According to the makers of the herbal product, CVO promises to both cure and prevent COVID-19 infections. It was said that all trials and tests conducted were effective and reliable in eliminating the signs and symptoms of the Coronavirus. However, not all people are interested and convinced by the new COVID-19 cure. And despite the government’s consistent promotion of the herbal product, the world has no interest in it. Because aside from having only a little available information about the herbal drink, the World Health Organization and other big pharmaceutical companies see no relation of this herbal medicine in curing the COVID-19 virus. That is because there have not yet been any scientific proof that the herbal remedy can surely cure patients with COVID-19 infections, let alone prevent people from getting infected.

However, since April 22 of this year, the CVO Company already handed out the herbal products for free to most schools in Madagascar. It has become a requirement for all students to consume it. The schools’ principals and heads agreed to the obligatory consumption because they believed it is their duty to introduce and encourage students to appreciate the benefits of the said herbal remedy. And for the parents of the students, well not all of them instantly agreed on the obligatory consumption. Other parents are still hesitant until now, while some already allowed their kids to try it.

The Current Status Of The Herbal COVID-19 Remedy

It was believed that Madagascar’s Academy of Medicine already warned the public of the products’ mass distribution. Health professionals emphasize that there is no scientific evidence that proves the drink to be effective. And at some point, consuming it will more likely cause actual health problems, particularly to children. The academy was firm on their stance on that one, but not after meeting with the president. And now, they managed to provide a different approach to CVO. That the academy does not entirely oppose the use and consumption of the herbal product, however, they pointed out that they leave the judgments to the people and reminded them to submit to compliance with an indicated dosage. That is mainly for children.

Takeaway

Whether there is entirely a benefit to this CVO production, a lot of people are still not convinced by it. They somehow called out the government by putting too much effort into promoting it as laudable as possible, especially to overcome the COVID-19 pandemic. Experts believe that this situation is a health problem. Thus cure should be based on the medical analysis.
