Good afternoon

So far I have experienced:

Firstly: Sceletium Tortuosum: Several of my patients have used or still use it to treat depression and the results so far are excellent.

Some children with the hyperactive syndrome and loss of concentration greatly improved, by also using Sceletium Tortuosum.

Secondly: Suntherlandia Frutescens: On the 6th of May 2009 I was diagnosed with a rectum carcinoma. Seen the tumour was situated very low in the rectum, the only option was to surgically remove it, with result…. a definitive stoma!

(Stoma: A stoma is a surgical bypass of a natural conduit, a kind of “short circuit”. It is practiced when the natural channel can no longer fulfil its role, as a result of trauma, disease or an ablation. In the most common, faeces or urine are collected in a pocket or bag. )

To prepare for an operation, with the intention of a smaller tumour and to ease the operation, I went for local radiotherapy (from 2nd of July till 7th July, 2009) combined with chemotherapy. The moment I was diagnosed with rectum carcinoma, I started immediately to take the Suntherlandia Frutescens, 3 capsules 3 times daily.

On August the 20th, 2009 I went for a check-up and good results were found. It was decided I would have a sphincter-saving operation without a stoma.

Meanwhile I kept taking Suntherlandia, besides some other medication.

On October the 22nd, 2009 I went in for another check-up, with result: Complete remission, so no further operation was needed. Given the severity of the disease, I of course keep on taking Sutherlandia every day.

Best regards,

Doctor G.P.

I, Mr. C. J. Luus, hereby confirm, that I tested the botanical herb, Sceletium Tortuosum, on several patients. These patients had symptoms such as depression, stress, anxiety, poor self-esteem, emotional stress due to the death of a family member and more. After treatment, good results were found with a minimum of 200mg as recommended dose.

The following results were found through feedback from patients who have used Sceletium Tortuosum:

– Works as a natural anti-depressant
– Good peace of mind
– Reduces anxiety, stress and tension
– Increase energy levels
– Increase concentration
– Increase Libido
– Emotional state improves
– Balanced eating
– Increased immunity
– Suppress tendencies to addiction
– Stabilize sleep

I’d like to say thank you for all your support and advice about my bleeding and asthma. I have explained to you that after the operation, my bleeding was some days more than before the operation.

I started with the Cayenne Pepper 3 x 3 capsules per day. Two days later already I recognize an improvement of the bleeding.
I then increased it to 4 capsules 3 times per day, and the bleeding is gone! My stock is finished, but for 10 days now, the bleeding is completely gone. I am also taking Sutherlandia daily, 2 capsules 3 times per day. I don’t even know about my asthma and I don’t feel so tired anymore.

It goes very well with my mother also.
I have read your website and got her the Sutherlandia. After 4 months of treatment with Sutherlandia she returned to the doctor, who was surprised to see no sign of emphysema.
She had two big spots on each lung and the doctor had said she would need an oxygen tank to use. She could not rise without having to constantly cough; she was very short of breath and could barely lift her arms. She asked me to say thank you again. She is 70 years old and she feels great. She said she would recommend Sutherlandia to anyone with emphysema.

Again, many thanks for the help. It is sincerely appreciated.

With the use of Sceletium Tortuosum, we have seen an improvement in concentration as well as in the attention deficiency disorder in our daughter. She is currently in Grade 12 and got the Sceletium Tortuosum just before the examination. She was calm during the exam and could concentrate better. Her school report improved with about 20%.

As a parent I would certainly recommend Sceletium Tortuosum for children who are sensitive and with tension.
I wish the product were 10 years back already on the market.

Thank you very much

In 2007 I was diagnosed with cancer in my windpipe (trachea), where it enters the lungs. The doctor said it could not be removed, because there is an aorta close by. I had chemo and then I received radiation.

Mnr. Hennie van Zyl gave me refined Sutherlandia to drink. His recommendation was that I should take one teaspoon per cup with boiling water. I should drink two to three cups per day. It is very bitter, so I put it in the fridge and drank it cold.

After a scan in January 2009, three spots on my lung were found, but I continually drank the Sutherlandia tea. On June 2009, the doctor told me that it is a miracle, because the spots were gone. His words to me were that I should not stop drinking the tea every day.
