A new herbal remedy from the Chinese city of Guangzhou that could be a game-changer for a new generation of pandemic survivors has also been shown to cure a range of other conditions, including heart problems, migraines and cancer.
The Chinese government-backed research project, which was carried out by a team of researchers at the University of Guangdong, has been given the nickname ‘Cura Herb’ after a famous Chinese medicine practitioner, who believed that the herb could help cure ailments including chronic headaches and insomnia.
A study by the team, published in the journal Science Advances, has found that the Chinese herb can be used to treat some of the symptoms of COVID-19, including headaches, dizziness and fatigue, as well as other health conditions, such as rheumatoid arthritis, type 2 diabetes and arthritis.
The researchers also found that it can relieve a range, from mild headaches to severe ones, in some cases, but can also be useful in people with a range and complex condition.
Dr Yuying Xu, one of the researchers, said: ‘Cure symptoms are very rare in people and it’s important to find a way to treat them.’
People with complex illnesses such as cancer or chronic pain are usually diagnosed when they are in pain, but COVID has been a huge problem for them and we found that this herb can help them to recover.’
We believe this is the first herbal medicine to be shown to be effective for people with complex conditions.’
A lot of medicines are made for certain ailments, but we think this is a major step in the right direction.’
Cura herb was developed from Chinese herbs that are commonly used in traditional medicine to treat pain, rheumatism and allergies.
The herb is a potent blend of Chinese herbs, including green tea, ginseng, bergamot and sage, that is said to have anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties.
Dr Xu, who is a professor of pharmacology and molecular biology at the School of Pharmaceutical Sciences at the National University of Singapore, said that while the results were preliminary, it was a significant step forward in medicine for COVID patients.’
Our goal was to make a pill that is safe, effective and affordable, so the researchers used Chinese herbs as a template,’ he said.’
They found the herb to be quite effective, especially in the treatment of headaches and migrainers, and also in the prevention of certain other symptoms, such a rheumatic fever, diabetes, and arthritis.’
Dr Xu added: ‘It is important to keep in mind that this research is preliminary, and the research needs more studies before it can be tested in larger clinical trials.’
However, given the fact that the new compound is being used to prevent COVID, we are confident that this herbal medicine can be very useful.’
Dr Zhao Yang, a senior scientist at the Chinese National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (INEGI), who was not involved in the research, said the findings were encouraging.’
This research is a huge step forward and we hope it will help the health of COV patients, and even improve their quality of life,’ he told Xinhua news agency.’
I hope this research will be translated into a better treatment for COV and its causes.’
Many people have tried the herb and many have died from COVID.
This herb has the potential to improve their health in the long run.’
