  • I have never in my life given room to any talk or ideas about herbs. I see herbs as hazardous substance and so I abhor any talk about herbs…I am a lady who have being trying to conceive for many years. I was told by doctor that I have block fallopian tube n fibroid. Ever since then I have been taking drugs all to no avail.. My story changed when a friend introduced me to dr unuayan that heals using herbs. I was not fully in support of the idea but I just had to give it a trial since I have been on drugs. I personally gave up on TTC. I contacted the dr unuayan and he said he strictly believe in the use of herbs for treatment such as fibroid, PCOS, block tube,ovarian cyst etc.. I asked him some question basically how he got to know about herbs.. He told me his brief history how he got his knowledge of herbs from his late father and promise me that I will return thanking him..I order for the herbs which he sent to me through a DHL courier company he gave me instruction on how to be taking the herbs. and today I thank God it works for me… I am a mother of a baby boy. I’m simply testifying over my breakthrough. What an how I did to conceive after years of struggling.on whatsapp+2348134647497
