If you don’t trust the science, do you trust Mother Nature? For those who are not comfortable with the Western Medicine way of tackling COVID-19, we have some wise old words from our “grandmothers” who believed in holistic healing.

“Baby, why are you worrying yourself about a COVID-19 when all you need to do is improve your zinc, iron, magnesium and vitamin C? You’ve been stressing yourself out about whether this vaccine is trustworthy when all y’all need to do is go back to the home remedies you were given at three.

“Baby, do you remember the time when you asked Big Mama what could you do to cure your children’s flu? And I would say, ‘Give them babies some hot tea with lemon and honey, some Pot Liquor (hot broth) from the greens I made; that’ll do them some good and get that sickness all out of there!

“Knowing good and well you looked at Big Mama upside her head like she lost some screws; but you listened and you knew then Big Mama wasn’t trippin’ when you saw that flu disappear from them children like it never existed.

“What about that time when you were younger and Big Mama gave you some Saltine crackers and Canada Dry Ginger Ale to help you when your stomach wasn’t feeling well? You can’t say that drink is not the truth! Shoot – you would’ve thought that it could help treat bullet wounds!

“Sugar, the point is, there’s no need to depend on over-the-counter medication and man-made vaccines when we have herbs, fruits, vegetables and seeds that could possibly cure anything. You’re trying to salvage up the little money and time you have to depend on those doctors when you need to be depending on the Good Father. Has he ever steered you down a path that led you asunder?

“Pay attention, Baby, and listen to what Big Mama is telling you because this has been on my spirit to let you know. Get on that little “Appledroid” or Apple phone you have in your hand and look up these holistic doctors and natural foods. Yeah, Big Mama has been doing some little research.

“Now there’s this powerful algae called Sea Moss or Irish Moss that has been around for thousands of years. According to TheBeet, Sea Moss carries 90% of the nutrients needed for the human body. The well-known seaweed has 92 of the 110 minerals like magnesium, manganese, calcium, phosphorus and zinc. Sea Moss is important to help support the boosting of your immune system, Baby!

“Now you better be keeping up with this information, Sugar, because Big Mama is too old to be remembering and repeating all this knowledge. Big Mama is not the record player she used to be; so keep up now!

“There’s another algae that the ancestors would use for centuries called Bladderwrack, which is rich in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. The brown seaweed is packed with calcium, iodine, magnesium, potassium, sodium, zinc, and vitamins A and C, to name a few.

“Lastly, Burdock Root is a plant that many cultures used for holistic medicine. According to Healthline, Burdock contains multiple types of powerful antioxidants, including quercetin, luteolin, and phenolic acids. The plant is mostly used purify the blood as it helps to remove toxins from the bloodstream.

“Now Baby, there’s this holistic counselor, Orisha Oshun who’s preached about the importance of cleansing our colons and how detoxing the body is essential to human health. She also created a detox plan, “Surviving Vegan 10 Day Challenge,” which involves fast-acting, plant-based remedies used to remove excess weight from the body through waste release.

“Baby, that one detox helped many women and men lose up to 20 pounds, lowered blood pressure and gave many the clarity needed to understand why clean eating is one of the most important factors of wellness. She’s even been recognized by “Love and Hip-Hop New York” reality star and musician Cyn Santana.

“Lastly Baby, there is a holistic doctor, who is not roaming the Earth with us now, named Dr. Sebi, who constantly preached about an alkaline body and how today’s diseases would not survive in a plant-based diet of fruits, vegetables, seeds, herbs and oils. He preached about Sea Moss and its powerful abilities to help heal the body. He believed that mucus and acidity caused illnesses.

“According to his health claims, the late Dr. Sebi helped to cure diseases like AIDS and Leukemia. However, he was accused by the state of New York in 1987 for practicing medicine without a license. He was acquitted of all charges made against him.

“You should know Black folks have been feeling funny about doctors since what they did to us down there in Tuskegee, Alabama. Did you think the way doctors feel about us would change through time and equality? Hell, we still have issues with the way doctors today treat our Black women and their pregnancies.

“Sugar, hearken to words and heed that has been delivered to you. The new generation doesn’t have to follow the unhealthy diet pattern we did. Baby, we had no choice but to do what we had to do in those days. There’s options and knowledge at the palm of your hands!

“There’s no need to stress on that COVID-19 vaccine. If you’re still unsure, try to change your diet, rely on ancient home remedies and make sure you stack up on  zinc, iron, magnesium and vitamin C, you understand, baby?

“Now go on to the grocery store and find those special herbs. If you can’t find it in stores, go online to look for them. These new kids have too many options to buy stuff now so take advantage. See if you can find some for Big Mama too!

“Alright now Sugar, go on and be great! Big Mama better not hear about you complaining and stressing about this disease that humans keep putting in the atmosphere.

“You hear me? Don’t think you are not too old to catch a few to your backside now!”

Again, we leave it up to you to determine what is the best option for you. If you are not confident in the vaccine, please do as much as you can to boost your immune system. RESEARCH the products and options we have discussed and DECIDE FOR YOURSELF!

STAY SAFE….And continue to wear your masks, wash your hands and practice social distancing.
