ZANZIBAR: MEMBERS of the public, particularly patients, have been urged to never stop taking medications as prescribed by doctors or physicians because it may put them at risk of developing chronic conditions.
According to health experts, there is a tendency of some patients stopping using hospital medicines, replacing them with other intakes such as supplements.
“Medical supplements are not treatment. If using it, you are still required to visit hospitals for diagnosis and treatment,” Dr Rosh Mwishehe emphasized here to people who turned-up in big numbers at the ‘Sheikh Idris Abdulwakil Hall’, Kikwajuni in response to the promotion of use of ‘stem cells’ supplement.
A considerable number of people with different health complications including non-communicable diseases, flocked to the hall to learn about how ‘stem cells’ works in keeping the body healthy, but Dr Mwishehe insisted on adhering to hospital treatment as prescribed.
Stem Cells supplements are often marketed as a way to improve overall health, boost the immune system, or support the body’s natural healing processes.
The doctor from the ‘UGreat Care,’ said “Taking your medicine as prescribed or medication adherence is important for controlling chronic conditions, treating, and overall long-term health and wellbeing.”
The product under the brand name ‘UgGeat Care’, a formulation from Japan is said to have multiple benefits as far as health of the body is concerned.
People were informed that the UGreat products in the united republic of Tanzania are legally recognized by the respective authorities including Tanzania Food and Drugs Authority (TFDA) and Zanzibar Food and Drug Agency (ZFDA).
Mr Mohamed Siraji, one of the facilitators at the meeting said that UGreat provides a stable platform as well as a unique and attractive marketing plan that is capable of producing successful entrepreneurs who can change people’s lives for the better and make them more comfortable.
