    Stick to th Bush Medicine, I never hear it kill anyone yet, back then, and my Grandmother lived to  106 years old, her mother to 110 years old her sister to 103 years old and their children are in the 90,s living off bush medicine,  and brandy, herbal teas, all kind, basil and lemon grass, soursop and sweet sop, sink-a-bible and cactus.  Donkey weed and parsley.  There are all there for our usage, given by the father.  How is it that so many mistakes are being made with food and medications.

    This is serious, if we can help it dont use it, Go back to bush medicine. and be blessed
