  • So no need to pass an egg on the childs body to take away fever.
    I remember they use to tell us that over 103 fever would cook your brain.

  • I give thanks to Dr. Isah Johnson for helping me get a permanent cure to  Uterine fibroid I have used different western medication without any improvement, And I could not have a child of my own.I had heavy bleeding, frequent urination, a bulky stomach, and cramping. My bleeding is sometimes so heavy that I can’t go out. I go through 10-15 pads in a day. It is so uncomfortable. I have tried everything you can imagine because I’ve had my fibroids for 15 years but none of them have really worked. They just make you feel like you’re doing something but at the end of the day it’s not really much of a relief. People advertise all sorts of “Fibroid Cures”. I’ve tried all  that you can imagine and they worked for a little while, but it’s not working out. You have to keep on going. You can’t really stop taking them. I got the contact of Doctor Isah Johnson from the testimony of people on the internet, and I contacted him through the Email and explained everything to him. Then he sent me his product which I used for one month. Now I am completely cured so I really want to tell this to the world that there is a permanent cure for Fibroid.  his contact is [email protected] gmail.com, or text him through  WhatsApp on +2349065613964

AFRICANS HAVE USED THESE REMEDIES, ALOE, AMONG OTHER POPULAR HERBS AND SPICES, OILS AND ELIXIRS AS WELL THROUGHOUT THE EXISTENCE OF TIME.
    BUT YOU people hear of or read someone else reports, make your debut videos like,

  • Please note “Bacteria are like us, they die wif the body temperature goes very high, so they will release an enzyme that will reset out body thermostat and so the temperature will drop.

Your child can be plying and suddenly through a fit and only after the fits you realise the temperature is high. Please download my app Dr Maya and check using the symptoms. My book.
