A short visit to Kelantan, and a lesson learned for all..


I made a quick visit to Kelantan today. It was due to one of my uncle were hospitalized recently. He got struck by a stroke a month ago while meeting.

As some might aware, stroke attack usually quite severe. The most common thing you will hear is paralyze. Yes, my uncle was practically paralyze but temporary. It all began when his brain's fluid were stuck inside and unable to flow smoothly. Due to that, he was hit with severe head pain and collapse on that day.

Doctors had no choice but to cut his skull open to free up the fluid's flow inside his brain. Due to that, he was in comma for few days. The next checkup once he is admitted were not that forgiving too. He was scanned to have a high blood pressure (which one of the cause of his stroke) and failing kidneys.

The result? He is now unable to move his body, not able to think properly and can't even speak.. For now. Eventually as I visited today, he is practically better. Now he is not depending on breathing machine to breathe. After doing a little therapy, he can sometimes started to grab things. Whether intentionally or not, that is anybody guess.

But nevertheless, he is getting better, Insya-Allah.

But what the most important thing is, his condition actually were caused by one thing. A thing where most fellow traditional malay would do. That thing is, so-called traditional medicine. If you ever come across with it, do try read the label. Practically you can see that the medicine can cure practically any severe problems like blood pressure, migraine, heart, diabetes, and many2 more. Just one simple pill that claimed to cure everything.

It is quite common so see it, especially in rural area. They put such claim, and they make it looks islamic, so people are buying like free burgers. The thing is, do think logically. One pill can heal everything? What such formula used that can beat all the scientist's hard word just to produce a pill that can, at least reduced one type of pain. Yes, just one.

It is unthinkable. It is unreal. But the thing is, there is one incorrect testimony which leads to others to believe.
The person who bought it, recommends it to the friend, neighbour, etc. The person realized when he ate the pills, his health became slightly better. This is where he is now believed that the pills really worked and started to recommend to others.

What people can't see is, the long term effect of this pills. No one really realized what is contain inside the pills. For those that don't know, it is practically almost 100% steroid! Yes steroid. It is a type of painkiller that is very effective in short term. Overused it, your body will take the toll. That is the thing that has been destroying the body, by constant taking it.

The problem is now, you can see these kind of pills everywhere. Everyone had their own brand. Those people that sold it under their own name, never even bothered to check the real contents of the pills. Some even went to the extent of producing counterfeit ministry of health's hologram. They want to show that their product is safe and approved. In the outside appearance, the ministry of health should play an active role on this. But... From what I heard, this thing has gone out of control. The ministry can't prevent it despite the warning and bust up. There are too many these kind of pills out there.

A very good example recently, someone produced the pills by using the infamous Adi Putra mathematic whiz kid. People starts buying since they saw that the whiz kid endorsed the pills. Which parents that don't want their kid smart right? So when their kids are getting sick, then the problem starts. The best thing about this case, if I'm not mistaken, it was that kid's father doing. I'm not really sure what happened to him after that.

...

Ok, I realized that I wrote up too much. But the thing is, be careful of what you eat. There is no such thing as a medicine that can cure all. Stay healthy and stay away from suspicious medicines. 

And now... I'm inside the bus, on the way back to my home while getting a bad flu, arrgghh >.< Good bye Kelantan and hopefully Pakcik (uncle) Shah will recover soon, aminnn.

Ciao~
