Dr. Madiha Saeed called to thank Allah the Almighty for his broad blessings and to manage matters in the current circumstances after the outbreak of the Corona, as well as to face the uncertainty, negative outlook and the ingratitude of grace by sensing the blessings in order to protect our lives. He is stressing that fasting and the spiritual aspect enhance the immunity of the body.
She added, "Fear must be transformed into hope, confronting challenges with opportunities, changing ourselves for the better, and applying health strategies and the immune system to improve our lifestyle and eliminate diseases".
She emphasized that disturbing the divine ecological balance afflicts us with chronic diseases, so that the treatment of diseases is found in the Quran, where we gain immunity from the natural prophetic food that the Creator provided for us, while inflammatory cells weaken immunity, obesity and diabetes, and thus threaten health when infected with Corona or other viruses.
Dr. Madiha Saeed explained that Ramadan aims to achieve piety, as well as eating good and halal food in a clean environment, because processed foods destroy the nutritional balance, immune system and the environment, stressing that we are away from sugars, carcinogens, soda, and additive and colored foods.
