Traditional doctor and founder of Sabash Herbal Center, Dr Kwaku Sabah has disclosed some possible ways for one to become an epileptic.
He noted that although there may be medical reasons to the condition, the irresponsibility of some parents lead to their children becoming epileptic.
“Doctors will always say their part and what they think but people hardly want to hear the truth and spiritual side of such condition”, he said.
In an interview with Rev Nyansa Boakwa on Happy 98.9 FM’s NsemPii he said, “Most people who suffer epilepsy are likely to have been fed by their parents in public as babies. It’s different if the child is old but if he or she is still a baby then, chances of evil spirits contaminating the food with the disease is very high”.
According to him, Ghanaian mothers see the act of passing food to their children as normal but it is not as if it can lead to the child becoming epileptic.
Another way one can become epileptic is through the burning of used diapers.
“Before we knew of diapers, mothers used napkins as their altenative but today, we have polished it and we claim to use diapers. Burning the used diaper of a child is also another way a child can become epileptic”.
Dr Sabah shared that there is a cure for epilepsy but doctors and herbalists shy away from it for the fear of contracting it.
“Herbalists and doctors refuse to cure this particular condition because it takes one who is very strong in the spirit to cure it. If you’re not spiritually strong and firm, you or any member of your family might end up with the condition”.
He mentioned that it takes one who is strong and knows what he is doing to cure such conditions, else he or she might end up with the condition.
He ended by saying, “Anyone who says there’s no cure for epilepsy is a liar. They are just afraid of its consequences”.
