Tell us the Good Stuff!
HIV+ cured by CANNABIS TEA
And greetings from South African Farm once again! This morning -22 September 2013 - I collected Henry Ngomezulu from Umkomaas Train Station. He has come donw from Johannesburg to join in the ONE LOVE CANNABIS PEACE MARCH happening in West Street, Durban, South Africa on Heritage Day.
So what makes Henry so special, and why is he so keen to see Cannabis legalised the world over?
I met Henry via The Dagga Couple and Below The Lion, who had sponsored his 2013 Comrades Marathon entry.
In 2002 he was diagnosed by the Zola Polyhealth Clinic in Soweto, Gauteng as being HIV +. He also had TB.
He was devastated beyond belief. In thos days you had to have a blood count of under 300 to qualify for ARV's.
So he remembered the stories of his African heritage from his grandmother, and obtained some marijuana - which of course is illegal in South Africa.
Over the next few years he started brewing an infusion in hot water of cannabis which he would then breathe. Later he started drinking marijuana infused tea. In 2008 he went back to be tested and he was shown to be HIV-. He had himself tested three more times - and still he was negative.
He ran his first marathon in 2010.
He is one of the worlds hero's. Do YOU think anyone in the medical profession has heard his miraculous claim?
Believe it - or not. Thank you Dr Sanjay Gupta for opening up the medical qualities of this beautiful plant. Now WHEN is someone going to listen?
How blessed we are to have Henry staying at The South African Farm! Come and meet Henry in Durban on Tuesday. The March starts at 11h00, gathering at Durban Christian Centre at 10h00 and presenting a mandate to the Durban City Mayor at 12h30 on the City Hall Steps.
