My name is Carol Anderson, I

By otolu on August 28

My name is Carol Anderson, I am here to give my testimony about a doctor who helped me in my life. I was infected with HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUS in 2010, i went to many hospitals for cure but there was no solution, so I was thinking how can I get a solution out so that my body can be okay. One day I was in the river side thinking where I can go to get solution. so a lady walked to me telling me why am I so sad and i open up all to her telling her my problem, she told me that she can help me out, she introduce me to a doctor who uses herbal medication to cure HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUS and gave me his email, so i mail him. He told me all the things I need to do and also give me instructions to take, which I followed properly. Before I knew what is happening after two weeks the HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUS that was in my body got vanished . so if you are also heart broken and also need a help, you can also email him at: odemisolutioncenter@gmail.com OR drboadir@gmail.com contact his number:+2348110035171

By rroberts202

I was constantly plagued with cold symptoms picked up mainly from work. To rid myself of the problem I now drink a 16 ounce smoothie (made up from apple juice, variety of fruit, echinacea and a 1 ounce shot of wheatgrass juice)at least once a week. Plus take 300 mg capsule combination of echinacea and goldenseal once daily. So far so good!

I suggest that we use those days whether long or short to relax, reflect, and rejuvenate. Take some eucalyptus and rosemary salt baths and body rubs. Drink lots of herbal teas. light meals for good eliminations and plenty of rest.

By Joe McGrath

"A week if you treat it, and 7 days if you don't!" So I guess we suffer a week, or if lucky, just seven days. Brilliant!
