Exercising for a Healthy Heart By Paul Vodak

A sedentary (inactive) lifestyle is one of the top risk factors for heart disease. Fortunately, it's a risk factor that you can do something about. When you have a heart disease, it is very important to exercise regularly. If you aren't already active, your doctor may want you to begin an exercise program. Even if you can only do a small amount of exercise, it is better than not doing any exercise at all. Being physically fit enhances the quality and the length of our lives, but most of us can't seem to find time. To make it work for you, it must become a top priority. Health is a very precious gift and deciding to stay fit is a way of protecting that gift.

Regular exercise has many benefits. It can:

  • Strengthen your heart and cardiovascular system.
  • Improve your circulation and help your body use oxygen better.
  • Improve your heart failure symptoms.
  • Increase energy levels so you can do more activities without becoming tired or short of breath

Health Care Delivery Under Conflict How Prepared is West Africa? By Adedoyin Soyibo

The broad objective of the study is to appraise the readiness of West African countries to provide health care in post-conflict environments. It is particularly concerned with the building of sustainable national and regional human, material and institutional capacity in order to confront specific health problems induced by conflict.

The conflict countries under consideration are Guinea-Bissau, Liberia, Cote d’Ivoire and Sierra Leone. Factors considered are the health impacts of armed conflicts and how these are addressed; the health status of post-conflict countries; epidemiological patterns; and the overall linkages between health, poverty and conflict. The study further considers the contributions of international and statutory agencies, NGOS, and regional bodies, such as ECOWAS, and the West African Health Organisation; and the provision of legal and institutional frameworks for health care. It ends with several recommendations and conclusions, notably that West African countries are not adequately prepared for health care delivery either under conflict or post-conflict; and that ECOWAS and agencies at regional level are not equipped to deal with the problems either.

The Programme on Global Security and Sustainability of the John D and Catherine T MacArthur Foundation funded the research that gave rise to this publication.

Adedoyin Soyibo is Professor of Economics, and Director of the Health Policy and Training and Research Programme and the Department of Economics, University of Ibadan, Nigeria. He has worked in the field of health economics for several international organisations such as the World Bank, IMF, World Health Organisation and International Labour Organisation.

Principles and Practice of Public Health in Africa. Volume 1 Edited by G.O. Sofoluwe
The first principle of public health practice is defined as the identification of the root cause or causes of all health problems, from the diseased individual to the effects on that individual of family, social, community, national, global, environment and other factors. The second principle is defined as the utilisation of the resources of the community, the nation and the world to effect a lasting and, often, a cheaper solution to health problems. This comprehensively revised and updated edition of the first volume provides a ready source for principles and practice, and more practical advice than the first edition which did not fully cover all the aspects of a comprehensive public health practice. The contributors are all practitioners, and the emphasis throughout is to bring out the principles involved in identifying the root causes of all types of health problems, and discovering practical and innovatory solutions for them in ways best suited to African countries.

Nature Power: A Christian Approach to Herbal Medicine By Anselm Adodo
When Nature Power was first published twelve years ago, the practice of herbal medicine in Nigeria and in most parts of Africa was identified with witchcraft, sorcery, ritualism, and all sorts of fetish practices. Because herbal medicine was associated with paganism, African Christians secretly patronize traditional healers, and the educated elite and religious figures did not want to be associated in any way with traditional African medicine. Nature Power, like a lonely voice in a wilderness, was written to correct the misconception that African herbal medicine is synonymous with paganism, ritualism, and fetishism. Since its publication, Nature Power has been reprinted more than eight times. It has contributed immensely in changing the attitudes of both the government and Christians toward the practice of herbal medicine. Nature Power has also helped show that health is more than an absence of disease. Health is wholeness of mind, soul, and body. Much of the information in this book is age-old secrets, which herbalists keep close to their chests. I have made them available here so that humanity may profit from them.

Herbal Medicine and the Revival of African Civilization By Anselm Adodo
The aim of this book is to show that Herbal medicine is a key part of African civilization and is necessary to the economic, social and cultural recovery of Africa…. For every sickness, there is a plant somewhere in the garden to cure it. Somewhere in the African garden is a plant for the cure of cancer. Somewhere in the African garden is a plant for the cure of diabetes, or hypertension, or malaria. Medicine, whether orthodox or alternative, started in the bush. Many human beings came from plant sources. And I believe that the best is yet to come. Right there in the African bush, the dead bone shall rise, men and women of wisdom, of vision, and of knowledge shall rise and change the face of the earth.  …Civilization started in Africa. Africa is the home of humanity. Africa is not the third world. Africa is the first world.
