Diabetes Association of Malawi endorses Teras herbal drug with stern warning

The Diabetes Association of Malawi (DAM) has become first Malawian health-related grouping to endorse herbal drug Teras which is claimed to cure both diabetes and cancer despite outlawing herbal drugs.diab

The drug made from spices, vegetables and fruits, is also believed to cure many diseases including kidney and heart failure, stroke, fertility problem, blood pressure as well as Aids.

DAM president Timothy Mtambalika told journalists in Blantyre during unveiling ceremony of the drug to diabetes patient that his association was forced to endorse Teras after successful trials.

He however, warned that the endorsement of Teras drug doesn’t mean patients should abandon prescriptions given by certified hospitals.

“First of all people should understand that medicines given out by our hospitals do not cure diabetes, it just controls the problem, but Teras has proven to offer our patients hope. Based on experience, the medication is doing well in dealing with diabetes,” said Mtambalika.

He then warned suppliers of other unproven herbal drugs to substantiate their claim, adding his association will be forced to take legal action if such suppliers continue to mislead people.

And founder of the drug, Shalice Amos said the medicine does not cure HIV but Aids.

“HIV is a virus and our drug does not cure that, but it cures Aids which is a group of health problems that make up a disease due to weak immune system. Our drug is made of spices, vegetables and fruits which
are obtained locally,” explained Amos.

Amos however bemoaned the reluctance by Malawi Bureau of Standards (MBS) and Malawi Poisons and Medicines Board to endorse the drug, which served her life two years ago when she was diagnosed with cancer
and diabetes.

“We have met the MBS people who referred us to the medicines board which told us they can’t endorse the drug because we don’t add chemicals in it.”

She revealed that they have put 80 diabetes and cancer patients on free treatment while others are on waiting list, as one way of helping out those that can’t afford the drug.

The drug is sold at a price of K10,000 per one litre bottle. The drug is to be taken for four months- six bottles for major health problems and four bottles for minor problems.

Meanwhile, Amos has revealed plans to construct clinics across the country to carter for patients who can’t manage to access the drug due to distance.

“Since the drug also needs to be refrigerated, it has been a challenge for those in rural areas and those who don’t have a refrigerator. The clinics will help us to serve more people,” she added.

Teras drug is made of cabbage, garlic, ginger, onion and shutter stock. It is currently being sold in Blantyre and Lilongwe.

  8. wozitsata says:

    Dats quite gud development, but de price is so exorbitant considering the impact of cashgate & poverty! How many patients can afford to buy a bottle @ k10,000? Shalice Amos think twice & reduce de price or other well wishers should subsidize the drug to save more Malawians. Mind you Chinanenepetsa khumba sichidziwika!!!

  17. Quota system says:

    Medical council of Malawi does not condone health workers indulging themselves in either traditional medicine or alternative medicines. Only in evidence based medicine. It is in order for Malawi Bureau of standards and medicines board not to give a nod to this. Don’t forget about the advice often given to diabetic clients on diet, care of their feet, HIV testing, follow ups and others

  18. Mulhomwe says:

    Please provide contact for Lilongwe clinic.

    I know what cures diabetes completely. Teras, has a good combination, but it needs support for it to achieve permanent healing. To this drug add this to your life style: 1. Maintain a good nutrition-use whole foods with bran, kernel, skin where possible, avoid the reined ones, brown rice, brown bread etc, go vegetarian(thats what is contained in the Teras), 2. do daily exercises-walk for 30mins daily, 3. drink 2litres of water daily in between meals, 4. get some sunlight daily- atleast for 20mins, before 10a.m or after 3p.m, 5. be temperate(do nothing in extreme-avoid toxins and poisons such as tea, coffee, cola, sugar, too much salt, etc),6. expose yourself to adequate air-open your windows day&night, walk in the fields and get fresh air, breathe deply), 7. maintain good rest, dont overwork, at least 6-8 hours of sleep every night, and lastly 8.have a good relationship with God the Creator- Exodus 20:8-11.

    1. rif says:

      good one

    2. Nal. says:

      Amen rif! All you have said is evidence based.

  23. Osangowaphunzitsa akumudzi kapangidwe kake bwanji? Ndani samudziwa kabitchi kapena anyezi? Muwoekera nazo ng’ambatu izi kuti ndinu okonda ndalama! Just ask the NGOs to finance you to teach the recipe to the rulal masses. Inu mudya ma allowance. Malawi ndi wankulu uyu!

  25. dopababi shopa says:
