  1. I’m from USA and also a herbal dealer and lover. I’m also a researcher on herbs for good health. Which also include Africa traditional and Asian herbal treatment.I support Herbal treatment, cure and vaccines. My view is based on my extensive research over a very long period of time, and my theoretical conclusion is, there is cure to all natural diseases including HSV, HIV, CANCERS, DIABETES, HEPATITIS B, COPD, FIBROIDS using the right medications with the right herbalist.
