Sickle cell disease is a group of disorders that affect hemoglobin, the molecule in red blood cells that delivers oxygen to cells throughout the body. The red blood cell in sufferers of this disorder is usually distorted into a sickle or crescent shape by the atypical hemoglobin molecules called hemoglobin S.
Symptoms of sickle cell disease includes anemia which can cause shortness of breath, fatigue and delayed growth and development in children; repeated infections and episodes of pains (sickle cell crises). These symptoms are as a result of the sickling of the red blood cells.
Sickle cell occurs when a person inherits two abnormal copies of the hemoglobin gene, one from each parent who are carriers of the sickle-cell traits.
The sickle cell disease is a lifelong disease which can be managed with vaccination, preventive antibiotics, high fluid intake, folic acid supplementation, and pain medication. Other measures may include blood transfusion and the medication hydroxycarbamide. A small proportion of people can be cured by a transplant of bone marrow cells.
However there is presently an amazing breakthrough in herbal medicine “CELLOD-S” for the treatment of sickle cell disease here in Nigeria.
Cellod-S is a herbal capsule which promotes cell health and used for the management of sickle cell disorder. Clinical results have confirmed that:
- It achieves sickling reversal and sickling prevention activities (College of Medicine, University of Lagos, Nigeria).
- Sustains a sickle cell patient even when the PCV (Packed Cell Volume) of the patient is remarkably low and gradually builds up the PCV.
- It eliminates pains and crises.
- If still within growing age, Cellod-S promotes growth of stunted patients.
- It helps to heal chronic ankle ulcers arising from sickle cell complications.
- Pregnant patients are assisted to successfully carry their babies to full term.
CELLOD-S is distributed by New Heights Pharmaceuticals, 3A Olaide Benson Street, Off Ikorodu road, Maryland, Lagos.
