One of our beloved members here, Dee, has just informed us about this highly recommended herbal treatment that is from South Africa and available for ordering worldwide. Please read on for more information:
“I have also done a bit of research about the artemisinin and it seems as if we have the same plant in South Africa - Artemisia Afra. Our traditional doctors prescribe it to cancer patients as it has the potential to stop cancer tumor growth.
I am able to find the fresh herb and the tablets. I have sourced some drops called Matema - a blend of Mathema herb and Artemisia Afra and Aloe arborescens. It is used by traditional leaders to assist patiets with cancer of the colon, intestine, liver, lung, prostrate, breast and skin, cysts and tumours. I am definitely going to try it and have already contacted the supplier - just waiting for an answer. The artemisinin annua l. which is available in the USA, is not available in South Africa, so this will have to do.
I have spoken to another vet and she said that she is aware of the fantastic powers of this herb. One of her clients have imported the artemisinin annua l from the USA - as it is not available in SA. I am going to phone her today and tell her about the South African version of this herb. She is very open-minded and I believe that she will be able to share this knowledge with other pet owners as well.
Matema is safe for pets. The dosage depends on the dog you have. A small dog should take 1 drop 4 times daily at regular intervals and a big dog can take 4 drops 4 times daily at regular intervals. The pet may feel tired in the first two days of treatment. You can also rup a drop on its ear close to the blood vessels for external absorption. This may be repeated twice daily.”
For more information, please visit Herbal Africa's website.
I also received this email from one of the Directors of the company who supplies Matema:
"You are not the first pet user to opt for Matema. I know of a couple of others that have tried Matema with success. A friend of mine George Berkovitz used it with great effect on his dog. Unfortunately, I can not give you any guarantees as this is the case for any cancer treatment, conventional or natural."
I am and have always been an optimist - just some days things get me down, but I usually recover from it quickly. I am going to try this Matema and will keep you all updated on Dee's progress. The supplier have advised that we will only really see the effect of the herb after 30 days. At this stage, I will try anything as I am unable to afford Chemo for Dee.
Love from Africa,
