Hello Sir
I have a friend with tumours in his brain. He is currently undergoing radiation therapy which I believe will do him more harm than good. He has been in hospital for 3 months now and his wife has asked me for help. I am unqualified but know that natural medicine can cure him. He is very weak but I have faith that he will survive. Can you suggest what to give him, please. He is 63.

The herbs for your friend -- Cleavers ( Galium Aparine ). Buy the mother tincture from a homeopathic store. Take 5 drops in a glass of water, twice a day for a month.
Drink 3 glasses of Carrot juice everyday for 2 months.
He can buy Ganoderma capsules and have one everyday for a month.
Black Cumin Seed Oil is also an effective cure for your friend. Have a teaspoon of this oil mixed with a teaspoon of honey. then drink a glass of warm water .
Give him 50 ml soursop juice daily for a month.
You may share the feedback after a month.

Hello Doc,
I recently got hold of this rhododendron juice which I've read is very good for your health, hence I've asked my entire family to make this a habit, father has rheumatoid arthritis and my mom has fatty liver with gall sludge. My concern is that since its toxic if taken in large quantities, is a glass a day alright? If yes what is the best time to drink the juice? Any instructions on it?
Thank you

Dear Ashutosh
Yes Rhododendron Arboreum is effective in treating Hypertension. You can take it in Juice/squash form. 2 teaspoons daily are fine.
However, it is advised to try Giloy herb ( Tinospora Cordifolia ). It is super effective in treating High Blood Pressure.
* In herbal form, Take 2-3 pieces of Giloy and prepare an infusion. Drink this water twice a day, morning and early evening. You can take it in homeopathic tincture form, take 2 drops in a glass of water. Have it twice a day.
* Take Arjuna powder. Take 1 teaspoon daily for a month. Keep a check on your blood pressure readings after taking the medication. However, if your blood pressure is too high, you can increase the dosage to 4 drops. Giloy is known to reduce the high levels of blood pressure. If you are taking any medication, please consult your Health care practitioner before taking any medication.
