  • Hola a todos, vivo aquí en New Brunswick. Mi hijo ha tenido herpes durante 9 años. Seguimos bien las instrucciones del médico, las mantuvimos, pero aún así fue bastante vergonzoso, perdí todas las esperanzas. Hace 6 meses, por suerte, una amiga me contó sobre el doctor Aham y me contó cómo curó a un paciente de Inglaterra. vio en YouTube el uso de raíces de hierbas tradicionales puras para curarla del virus. Les pedí ayuda después de gastar tanto dinero en medicamentos, encontrar una cura para la vida de mi hijo sería lo mejor para la familia. El Dr. hizo todo lo posible para ayudarme a preparar las hierbas y nos las envió aquí en Canadá, mi hijo las usó según las instrucciones. Por desgracia, en el espacio de 29 días, el virus del herpes desapareció. Mi hijo ha vuelto a la vida. Son buenas noticias para la familia. Gracias a todos, obtuve la ayuda que necesitaba. ustedes pueden obtener ayuda y también contactarlos algún día.

  • I find the Governments and parliament as a institution just so inadequate lets face it virtual every thing. It is an out dated Victorian institution demonstrated so well by the televised question time on Friday 22 Nov> The government has now changed the statistical counting method regarding dementia so hiding from the truth. Really just not good enough and totally inadequate. So what do you do VOTE THEM OUT and mean for ever, just get rid of them.

  • My brother markhas been diagnosed with ALS for a little more than a year. He showed signs of it for close to three years and no Doctor was able to figure out what was wrong, until my sister whom he had been living with kept trying to bring him to each doctor —finally found a doctor who recognised almost immediately that he had ALS. He has been taking medication that was made available to him only through a medical grant funding from those who have donated to the continuing research for a possible cure. He has slowed down in the progression, but without side effects. My hopes and prayers are that, you can also contact the Doctor for possible cure if you have ALS or any relative suffering for same disease here his email:[email protected]
