Treating Sickle Cell Disease in Africa
28 June 2018 (online)
Sickle cell disease (SCD) is a condition causing lots of complications and suffering. In the past decades, treatment modalities have been developed that increase life expectancy and the quality of life of SCD patients. In Africa, these are not available, resulting in SCD patients to die young after many hospitalisations for serious and often painful crises. A new homeopathy-based remedy for SCD has been used with good results since 2013.
