Traditional herbal doctors in Africa have long used malaria to cure paralysis.
Sickle-cell anemia is considered by some to be the body`s natural evolutionary defense against malaria.
Malaria keeps sacred places sacred.
Quinine is the traditional preventative medicine against malaria. It is a `bitter` herb and is derived from the bark of a Cinchona tree.
The Cinchona tree is the national tree of Peru and Ecuador where the bark has been used as a cure for fever for thousands of years.
The largest Quinine/Cinchona tree plantation in Africa is in the DRC.
