“We Can Work Together For The Betterment of Humanity”

Dear DailyClout,

My name is Thaothe Bosiu, aged 44, and my wife is ‘Majoel Bosiu, aged 45. We love people. We are both Basotho, living in a country called Lesotho. Lesotho is a very tiny mountainous country located on the Southern part of Africa, completely landlocked by South Africa. Lesotho is considered a lower middle-income country with significant socioeconomic challenges. Almost half of its population is below the poverty line. Lesotho has among the worst health outcomes globally; Lesotho’s HIV/AIDS prevalence rate is the second-highest in the world. Lesotho also has one of the world’s highest TB incidence rates, at about 611 cases per 100,000 (World Health Organization, 2019). Between 1990 and 2006 the country’s average life expectancy fell from 61 to 43. Just before 2020, life expectancy had increased to 53 years. In addition to the significant socioeconomic disadvantages, the mountainous terrain, limited transport infrastructure, and a largely rural population make the delivery of health services extremely challenging.

‘Majoel and I both have been exposed to an environment of preventative health care. That is, the environment of wellness/well-being and alternative health. Our mutual exposure to preventative care is spanning more than 15 years. I have also been fortunate enough to be exposed to a traditional/mainstream treatment care environment for more than 15 years, having worked for an institution supporting and collaborating with the Ministry of Health (MOH) to manage programs including revitalization and provision of primary health care services in remote rural areas of Lesotho as well as launching and managing MDR-TB treatment care at the national level. I was also involved in a program accompanying the Lesotho government through MOH to Strengthen the Lesotho health care system through National Health Care Reform. 

Please note that in as much as ‘Majoel and I embrace Universal Health Coverage (UHC), which entails a full continuum of essential health care services, we are now more passionate and more engaged in preventative health care, even after my long exposure to other essential health care services, especially because preventative care still looks like “unchartered territory” even today. Our gravitation towards preventative care is also propelled by a Sesotho saying, “Ho ipaballa ho molemo ho feta setlhare.” That is, prevention is better than cure; the proactive approach yields better outcomes than the reactive approach, most of the time. Please check out the third leading cause of death in America. I am choosing America here not only because most global trends we follow come from America, but also because America documents data/information and this data/information is always easily accessible.

Most of the lifestyle-related diseases or Non-Communicable Diseases (NCDs) start small and mildly at the sub-clinical stage before they can elevate or advance to clinical stages that are severe at times. This is why it is of paramount importance that we continue to help as many people as possible by assisting them to integrate preventative measures into their lifestyle. That is why preventative care plays a critical and fundamental role at all times.

Just a quick example for further background and context purposes, in 2009 my father passed away. In my father’s case, he was not intentional in terms of taking care of himself. He only implemented preventative measures when he was not feeling well, and when he felt well he didn’t implement our measures. This seems to be the case with most people. Most people, especially in our Black community, are reactive and not proactive, and this mindset/attitude forms a weak pillar that is contributing more to incidences of lifestyle-related diseases or Non-Communicable Diseases and mortality/death in our community.

All the circumstances above, and many others, triggered me for a long time to go around to find doctors and other medical personnel to see if we could collaborate and join hands on preventative strategies to help people. However, all the medical doctors and other medical personnel we approached showed no interest in collaborating with us. I finally came to terms with this, and then decided that maybe I have to do this myself, even though I am just an accountant who has been fortunate enough to have been around wellness/wellbeing and alternative health platforms for a while, coupled with the fact that I also worked in the traditional healthcare industry for a very long time, as an accountant. Around 2020 and 2021, I was even contemplating going to study medicine, but on the other hand, I felt like by the time I finish medical school the people whose lives I want to save through preventative therapies may be gone judging by the increasing disease incidence and mortality rates prevailing around the world. 

However, our exposure to wellness/wellbeing and alternative health space, grounded on compassion and integrity has capacitated us with the architecture and infrastructure to administer world-class preventative strategies and interventions that are multi-dimensional and robust. These interventions have yielded 100% results in incidences of cardiovascular or heart disease and cancer disease in the last 15 years of our experience. That is, in a more than 15-year timeline, ‘Majoel and I have had zero mortality/death outcome in heart-related diseases and zero mortality/death outcome in all types of cancers for all the people that have been consistently adhering to our basic/foundational preventative measures/protocols. Please note that heart disease is, and has always been, the number one leading cause of death, followed by cancer.

Furthermore, over time, we evolved to provide a comprehensive approach to preventative care that encompasses supporting even people with pre-existing conditions, either at the primary level or at the secondary level, especially now when global disease incidence and mortality is continuing to increase at alarming rates. All people from all spheres of life in-country and on the international front, including doctors and other clinicians, have personally benefited from our comprehensive preventative remedies.

For people who observe our protocols, this comprehensive approach of preventative care has also optimized outcomes in these prevailing common disease areas/symptoms including:- ADD and ADHD, asthma, bone pain, cold and flu, constipation, dementia including Alzheimer’s, dizziness, fatigue, forgetfulness, hair disorders, headaches, heartburn, joint inflammation including joint pain, menstrual disorders including period pains, muscle cramps/pain, numbness in feet and hands, pre-menstrual syndrome (PMS), sinusitis, skin disorders (some), sleep disorder, smell disorder, taste disorder, and tingling feet and hands.

Now at the global level, the situation of people getting ill and dying seems to be significantly increasing as days go by. Lesotho is not spared from this shocking situation. These interventions that we are providing are starting to yield some fruits and we think that we are starting to see light on the other side of the tunnel. Please note that in as much as we are focused on preventative care, some people come with already pre-existing conditions at the primary or even secondary stage. For example, we have one lady we helped who couldn’t walk from her bedroom to her kitchen, but within one week of helping her with our therapeutic intervention the whole neighborhood around her was celebrating this lady who is now able to walk from her bedroom to kitchen, and also able to go outside her house. 

There was a medical doctor who was experiencing chronic headaches, but also within a week of our intervention, the headache was gone. There is a lady who had pain everywhere in her body including other horrible symptoms and was referred by Lesotho doctors to South African doctors because medical services/care in South Africa is far more advanced than Lesotho medical services/care. This lady couldn’t be helped even in South Africa and she was told that they couldn’t establish/identify what the problem is. She was also told that maybe if she goes to USA, where medical services/care is even far more advanced, maybe that is where she could be helped. She came to us and we applied our interventions and she regained her normal self/health/wellness and she can now use her hands to do laundry, she can now sleep, she can also walk up and down the stairs. She is a single mom of twins who are about 12 years old. I also have my own grandmother; her children took her to South Africa after been referred by Lesotho medical system. In South Africa, still, they didn’t know what the problem was and she was told that the problems that she had were because she is old. My grandmother was not happy at all, and she then insisted to her children that she wanted to be helped by myself and my wife. She came and we discovered that she had two cancers in her respiratory system, which we addressed right away together with other chronic conditions that she had. She is 90 years old, and now after helping her she can also walk around and do everything with dignity. 

In as much as we are impacting lives, this involves revolutionizing the way we think as Black people, particularly in Lesotho which is a country considered one of the poorest countries in the world, where challenges to providing high-quality health care are significant, this means that focusing in preventative care is very critical. There is one famous radio presenter in Lesotho who was diagnosed with cancer more than five years ago. Around 2019, I asked him how much he had used for his cancer treatment in South Africa. He told me that he had used more than $83,300 (M1,500,000). I looked at him and thought, “Where did he get the $83,300 (M1,500,000), especially with our economy?” Maybe he read my face and could see that I was puzzled about where he got that kind of money. But before I could even ask where he got the money from, he told me that he was lucky to get donations from people he knew. At that point in time, he also told me that he had to raise further funds to support the medical procedure of detoxification that he had to undergo following his cancer treatment. He said that this too, was also not going to be cheap at all.

It is worth noting that these interventions we provide are resource-intensive because, for example, we are currently working day and night to move fast to consolidate everything that we are learning and have learned, everything that we are experiencing, and everything else that we have gained. At the same time, we are trying to continue serving people who can hear us when we knock on their hearts to demonstrate the value of being proactive regarding our health and wellness.
