Traditional healing ebola outbreak

A posse of young boys armed with slingshots blockades a road to prevent a Red Cross vehicle from bringing medical supplies into a village wracked by Ebola. Christian Zigbuo (right) works to distribute printed information to educate people in Liberia about the Ebola virus.
I recall a conversation I struck up with a young man sitting under a large umbrella by the roadside in Monrovia a few years ago. Pointing to a now-empty swimming pool in an abandoned hotel across the street, he said, “See that pool? As if the war was not horrific enough, when peace came, gangs of young men armed with military weapons roved the city, robbing and intimidating the people until the U.N. Trust depends on the effectiveness of the government and its institutions to deliver adequate, impartial service to its citizens. In daily survival it goes unnoticed, and in many places it does not figure into ongoing relationships.
Efforts to create reconciliation commissions have been tried with varying degrees of success. When I talk with people who have been through terrible experiences such as civil war, I often hear stories told in soft voices that surface pain and loss. Nurses listen intently during a panel discussion at The United Methodist Church’s Mercy Hospital in Bo, Sierra Leone, to help prepare health care workers for dealing with Ebola. This emotional reservoir, along with weak government, social structures and economies, creates a stew of uncertainty, unmet needs and struggle. What the Ebola crisis has revealed is that residual trauma and weak civil society infrastructure have long-term effects.

Among other career work, he was the general secretary of United Methodist Communications, and publisher of United Methodist News Service.

Herbs have a place in good health when used as alternative medicine therapies along with meditation.
The basic application of herbal medicine involves disinfecting wounds or used as a poultice. The use of herbal medicine varies according to the customs, traditions, and beliefs of the different races.
Oriental medical practitioners are also known to use herbal products alongside energy therapy, like Qi Gong and Reiki.
Certain plants have the capability to help a person relax to cope with their emotional and mental problems. It’s true that alternative herbal medicine is safe to use as compared to its synthetic counterpart, but it is essential to take some necessary precaution to ensure that there will be no side-effects or allergic reactions to its ingredients to promote body wellness. Consultation of a medical expert is necessary to determine whether it is safe for you to use herbal products or not. The history of alternative medicine is a long and fascinating one, beginning some 5000 years ago. The medical care of that era was not too terribly different from what it had been the century before. Conventional medicine began to differ from its old, comfortable ways into something very different. Vaccination programs were introduced to the population, saving untold numbers of adults and children.
One would think that the history of alternative medicine ceased to add any sort of progress to its timeline due to all the progress made during this period by conventional medicine.
The long and colorful history of alternative medicine is still quite the open book, and all signs point to it remaining this way for some time to come. Having worked around the world, I have seen and heard the fear and mistrust that people have of government and others in official capacities in places such as Kampuchea, Ethiopia, Somalia, Mozambique, Sierra Leone, Liberia, and South Africa. I was caught once by a gang of young guys who put a tire around me and threw me into that pool to drown.


For example, in the county most affected by Ebola in Liberia, according to a story in the New York Times, the health surveillance officer does not have a computer to track disease statistics. Sometimes they provide a platform for the abused to have a voice, sometimes they exacerbate unresolved divisions. Sometimes this pain is expressed with strong language that reveals unresolved feelings of injustice and indignity. In the case of Ebola, I think it points to a need for clear, trusted voices to interpret the reality of the virus, and to encourage people to get medical care and avoid traditional healing.
While large group gatherings are being discouraged during the contagion, under better conditions local congregations are communities of support where spiritual comfort and assurance are given, and personal growth and development occur. With your help, we can provide communications support in the event of a crisis or disaster. There is always a blurred zone of concern and a landscape located below the visible landscape, another landscape that is not given at first gaze. Tibetan nomads face many challenges to their traditional way of life including political pressures, forced resettlement by China’s government, climate change and rapid modernization.
In this project, Alberto Alicata, traces the history of photography, image iconic realized by the great masters, resorting to the use of a symbol of contemporary Western culture: Barbie. An Afghan refugee carries his child as he arrived on a beach on the Greek island of Kos, after crossing a part of the Aegean Sea between Turkey and Greece, on May 27, 2015. TransBrasil is an ongoing project, which aims deepen about gender identities issues from documentary photography perspective. An exhibition of all the winning and shortlisted work will run at Somerset House, London from 22nd April – 8th May. Khamseh was announced as the winner of the $25,000 (USD) prize at an awards ceremony in London in front of industry leaders. In addition, the organisation announced the winners of the Youth and Student Focus Photographer of the Year titles.
Free to enter and open to all photographers, the awards are an authoritative voice in the photographic industry that has the power to shape the careers of its winning and shortlisted photographers. This beautiful yet thought-provoking work examines the social issues around this violent crime – looking past the physical and psychological damages suffered, and towards the social stigma and blame the victims, who are mainly women and children, suffer.
The power of Asghar Khamseh’s imposing series ‘Fire of Hatred’ is such that he enables the viewer to face head-on intimate images, which could be testing to examine closely, with empathy and respect which in turn allows the viewer to become a witness and not just a spectator. Associate Professor in Environmental Chemistry at Ehime University, Japan, Nomiyama is keen wildlife and underwater photographer.
Born in Freeport, Maine and currently attending school in Angwin, California, Delaware is a self-taught photographer who has been shooting since the aged of 12.
She collected €30,000 worth of Sony photography equipment for her university at the awards ceremony in London. They were recognised by the World Photography Organisation for both their careers as artists and their significant impact on Asian photography.
Together they founded China’s first contemporary art space dedicated to the medium, the Three Shadows Photography Art Centre, and the 2015 Jimei x Arles Photo Festival in partnership with Les Recontres d’Arles.
The exhibition will also include a special dedication to Outstanding Contribution to Photography recipients, RongRong & inri. Many people have made the move from conventional to alternative medicine, and once through the proverbial door, have never looked back. Why do people seem to be abandoning the allopathic medical doctors of the world and flocking to the care of alternative practitioners? How easily we forget that since man’s time on this earth began, he has used natural methods of health care for himself and his family? They help the body to cleanse itself and get rid of toxins, and allow it to reach the state where it is able to heal itself. Your body will heal itself with the proper treatment, and stress can become a thing of the past with meditation. The lack of modern medical technology has made our ancestors improve their healing arts by making use of nature’s gifts. Application looms large in the practice than actual research; though the latter came sometime later when medical practices started its evolution. Later discovery on the method involves pounding leaves and roots to paste for directly administering it to patients. Energies provided by an experienced practitioner of the arts stimulate the healing process from the outside, while nutrients and extract from herbal components works its function on the inside to achieve total body rejuvenation. Peppermint, for example, is known to have a minty quality that can cool a person’s temper or help a person relax during stressful times. Even if the medicine worked on others, there is a possibility that it will have a reverse effect depending on your body’s chemistry.
Many different cultures contributed their traditions to this history, including the Chinese and Indians, whose beliefs we still practice today. During the lifetimes of our great great grandparents in the 19th century, medical doctors were more like today’s naturopaths and not our no-nonsense, prescription writing physicians of the 20th and 21st centuries. It is safe to say that the history of alternative medicine remained fairly static during this time.
Intensive care units were introduced in hospitals, and major surgical procedures invented such as kidney transplants and open heart surgery. And in a another, villagers flee when a health worker in a white lab coat makes calls in the neighborhood. In these places, the common historical theme is social conflict, and in some places outright war. I learned he was a high school student when his education was interrupted by the civil war in Liberia. Without effective government, there was no security, and pronouncements by those who claimed leadership were unreliable. Infrastructure such as sanitation, electricity, communication, health and education are weak. As a consequence, the health officer could not track the outbreak of Ebola in real time, and was relegated to an inadequate pen and paper record that was woefully behind the rapid spread of the virus. It is the residual emotional state of people who are recovering from traumatic experiences in post-conflict societies. However, it’s been my anecdotal experience that in post-conflict societies, trauma is not far below the surface, and in times of crisis, when trust is on the line, it can rear its head. It’s also important for the church to provide messages of hope, comfort, encouragement and concern. Improving the health system, physical infrastructure, education and governance are critical. This series of photographs, Empire of dust has been realized in south Italy, in the regions of Sicily, Calabria, Basilicata and Puglia, where financial crises and embezzlement have made of the incompleteness, an architectural aesthetics.


The Eagle Hunting festival, organised by the local hunting community, is part of an effort to promote and grow traditional hunting practices for new generations in the mountainous region of western China that borders Kazakhstan, Russia and Mongolia. After being treated by Emergency, she got back home, but she was refused by her family, that considered her healing as a sign of deamon possession.
Irving Penn, Richard Avedon, Guy Bourdin, David Lachapelle, Mario Testino are some of the names which Alicata honors, studying carefully chosen shots and recreating a set to measure Barbie rebuilt in detail the limits of the obsessive precision, the original that inspired it, in order to strengthen the authenticity and strength of timeless images, now become part of our visual memory and intended to be timeless. The winners and finalists of all fourteen Professional categories were also announced at the ceremony.

The health benefits from alternative medicine therapies and meditations are abundant and popular, too, with an estimated 1 in 3 cases choosing alternative medicine. Why has the health insurance industry noted this and started to tentatively cover some, but not all, alternative medicine therapies – even meditation in rare cases? He didn’t have much choice, as nothing else existed at that time to use for routine care and healing, save perhaps a miracle from God. Even conventional doctors are aware that herbs can improve the health of their patients when used as alternative medicine. Even today, current medical discoveries are mostly based on the findings and usage of natural herbal components by early civilization, improving it to become useful in today’s health-related concerns. It later evolved into combination with other potent medicine to improve its effects, and was even later introduced to meals and normal human diet to promote better health and improve physical, emotional, and mental recovery. Such is the case; it is essential to have doctor look at your present medical condition to determine if you are compatible with the alternative herbal medicine or not.
Most of the cultures thought that the body’s energy had to be synched with nature both in spirit and in body. Doctors tossed aside what they believed to be outdated treatments such as homeopathy, traditional Chinese medicine, and even prayer, embracing the new and exciting discoveries exclusively. He wanted to study agronomy, but the post-war economy was making survival difficult and the dream of college unrealistic. In both, a generation of children lost their childhood because they were born in a time of war. In this circumstance, it’s a form of public witness in addition to a vital community service. The training and handling of the large birds of prey follows a strict set of ancient rules that Kazakh eagle hunters are preserving for future generations. Defined by its rich variety of colors yet in a forever changing, yet completely barren landscape. Intuition playful operate this simulation, using one of the most imitated, idolized, collected and studied which is renewed in every historical period, this production puts in a dimension in the making, is intended to be enriched with new images, and more opportunity to quote unexpected suggestions. Together with lower price on coal, it led to huge redundancies and the coal became a curse for many of the coal-cities in West Virginia. The herbs, minerals, and other substances were placed here by a Higher Power for just that purpose ever since the Prehistoric period in history.
That should tell us that there must be something in the practice worth passing from generation to generation. Many of them are willing to work with their patients who have embraced the alternative medicine way of life. Alternative medicine doctors were only there to facilitate this synchronization by helping their patients to figure out what things were standing in the way of their balance.
Quietly and purposefully, alternative medicine took the treatment leftovers and worked with them, strengthening the discipline to such an extent that many patients were loathe to leave them behind altogether. They didn’t attend school, and many were internal migrants or refugees in neighboring countries. On each photographs, emanates a disquieting strangeness: unfinished villa, ghost dam or building left as skeleton, all architectures reflect a real estate disaster. In addition physical and psychological damages, victims are faced with the experience of social stigma ,blame and social unpleasant tags. Namibia’s landscape draws you in, through a vast brown plain of scorched earth, and steers you over the white surface of a salt pan to finally arrive in the gold tones of the sand dunes. They live in Waterloo, a village developed from a refugee camp, heavely stroke by ebola in December 2014. For that reason, the proposal adopt the transgender concept, understanding the trans as a dynamic space without fix tags; as a border with an identity traffic which enable plurality and freedom to choose who each person wants to be, creating a gender hybridity. Herbs used for health in alternative medicine therapies, and meditation used for stress relief and relaxation are safe and reliable ways to build good health.
Doctors also made suggestions to their patients that, if followed, would enable them to live harmonious and happy lifestyles. Their concrete body, naked and disarmed, accuse also a premature aging, cracks overgrown by vegetation or first signs of crumbling: the ruin threatens, especially palpable, that Amelie Labourdette capture these works in a lush greenery seizing of vitality , coniferous forest erected on a mountainside, palm trees and passion fruits, tall fennels with yellow flowers. The designated “medicine man” kept everyone in his family, and more than likely anyone else who asked, in good health with alternative medicine therapies and meditation.
In the manner of ancient ruins, these human constructions which seem to getting back to nature, to be reabsorbed by the environment they emerged one day.
It literally takes you hours, driving though nothing, to at long last arrive at…more of nothing. Some people use their dress, behavior and mannerisms to live as the gender that feels right for them.
Drugs, pills, alcohol and violence is dominant many places, and young people are struggeling to find work, forcing many to move.
Concrete skeletons of major projects remained pending, of unfinished buildings, recurring patterns of our time affected by socio-economic upheavals, become also, because of their incompleteness, interstitial spaces of indeterminacy, conducive to a photographic quest, exploring the possibilities of a singular reinvestment of the world: they are proving to be, spaces and indefinite forms that have, due to their incompleteness, a A«becoming-otherA» that the design of the initial project had dedicated them. The sight of other people is rare and only the strategically located gas stations are a reminder of the world beyond. Some people take hormones and may have surgery to change their body so it matches their gender identity.
This country is in another time zonea€”time seems to move slower but it feels more logical, somehow.
Chaperoned by herds of giraffes or zebras, shadowed by flocks of flamingos, suddenly stumbling upon a family of elephants.
The animals look up curiously, but soon forget about you and slowly continue their journey, unhurried by your presence, at their own pace.
