They all attested to the efficacious results they got from taking the mixture and recommended it to Ghanaians.

Dr Barimah revealed that after testing the mixture at CPMR, he can vouch for the potency of the medicine.

 “ We at CPMR has done our research on Thorntina-74 Immune Booster and we can recommend it for all.

While Dr Albert Wereko Tawiah told the GraphicOnline that the medicine is well-packaged and processed to meet the requirements needed by the immune system to be extra strong.

Meanwhile the manufacturer of the medicine and CEO of Diagnostic Herbal Centre says he will soon seek international approval for the mixture.

The herbal immune booster, which aims at providing support for the immune system to fight infectious diseases, is a distillate generated from three main plants — Moringa Oleifera, Spondias mombin, commonly known as yellow mombin, and tetrapleura tetraptera (prekese).

Increase in patients at CPMR    
Dr Barimah said the increase in patient attendance at the CPMR to seek treatment attested to the strong belief in and efficacy of herbal medicine, saying that had encouraged the centre to work on developing a cure for the COVID-19 pandemic.

He revealed that since the outbreak of the pandemic, the medical facility at the centre had witnessed an increase in intake of patients from 80 to 140 per day.

He said over the years, due to its thoroughness and the promotion of the safe use of plant medicine, many people had turned to the centre for the treatment of viral and other forms of diseases.

"For the past 46 years since the inception of the centre, it has promoted the safe and responsible use of plant medicine through research and many have found it very helpful, for which reason they continue to patronise it," he emphasised.

The Managing Director of the Diagnostic Herbal Clinic, originators of the medicine, Mr Yaw Owusu Gyapong, said the immune booster was developed as a response to his own need for a powerful immune booster to promote his general health and help find a solution to the threat posed by the COVID-19 in particular.

“The knowledge that people with a stronger immune system are able to fight and survive the COVID-19 drove me to go back to the laboratory, and after comprehensive research, came up with the Thorntina-74 Immune Booster,” he explained.

He urged Ghanaians to pay attention to their health and personal well-being and encouraged them to trust the efficacy of natural herbal medicine which had been developed from trusted sources.

Three Ghanaians who have already tried the medicine attested to its efficacy and encouraged Ghanaians to patronise it.
The Centre for Plant Medicine Research (CPMR), formerly called the Centre for Scientific Research into Plant Medicine (CSRPM), based at Mampong-

Akwapim, was established by the Government of Ghana in 1975 as a result of the dream and vision of Dr Oku Ampofo, a renowned allopathic medical practitioner.

Since the outbreak of the COVID-19, the centre has received many herbal products and plants to be tested and certified as having the potential to cure the disease or at least alleviate symptoms.
