I know a few people in Africa that have been affected by the Ebola and friends who have come back to the states not affected. I understand the severity of the epidemic and see the government’s reaction to it by restricting travel in and out of West Africa, as well as setting up facilities to treat the disease. This also means that health organizations and hospitals need to create and implement strategies to contain and treat patients (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 2014). I like to think outside the box and look at alternatives, which is why I'm excited to own my own healthy coffee business.
My coffee company, Organo Gold, just opened up in Nigeria and the response to having Ganoderma Lucidum, infused in the coffee, helping many people has been overwhelming. Nyishar (2013) suggested that Ganoderma is an adaptogen and has many health benefits, especially helping the immune system as well as many health benefits like cancer. I am glad that the herb in my coffee is helping people feeling better from the effects of Ebola. The study I would like to see happen is to see what the actual effects that this miraculous king of herbs could do against it.
It is amazing what an impact on social change that could make. Not only would it help with health but also add to economic growth. It has made a difference in my life by no longer taking allergy medicine and losing almost 80 pounds, as well as providing a source of residual income. Organo Gold is all about creating positive social through personal development and helping people change their money. Who knew coffee and positive social change went together!
