Herbalists urge government to let them play role during COVID-19

City Press reports that traditional healers and herbalists say they have been 'left behind' in the response to the outbreak.

The City Press has reported on traditional healers and herbalists who say government has excluded them from the complementary health options available to South Africans to treat COVID-19.

They have told the publication that while registered allied health practitioners such as homeopaths have been considered essential services, the fact that they have not been listed as essential workers has created a bias when it comes to the provision of care.

Speaking to Joanne Joseph on the Afternoon Drive, Teras Herbal Juice herbalist Makelani Bantu insists the ground is not level.

Not everything that is good is going to be coming from pharmaceuticals ... we raise our hands and say guys if you are in trouble and scientists are also looking for a solution, why can't you engage us so we can bring what we have.

Makelani Bantu, Herbalist - Teras Herbal Juice

We have this invention that is made only by fruits and vegetables only, we just started it as a recipe to help with flu but because it is being mixed, it is even helping us with chronic illnesses. South Africa has deployed mostly scientists to go and come up with a solution, we are saying the ground is not levelled.

Makelani Bantu, Herbalist - Teras Herbal Juice

For us, we deal with the immune system, we just emphasis on the issues of eating the right food and that is going to help you. It looks like there is no person who is willing to entertain what we are bringing to them, there is no reasonable doubt that this juice can help.
