    I was diagnosed of ALS disease (Lou Gehrig’s

    disease) in 7 and I have tried all I can to get cured but all to no

    avail, my life was gradually coming to an end, until i saw a post in a

    health forum about a herbal doctor from Africa who prepares herbal cure to

    cure all kind of diseases including ALS, MND, Epilepsy, Leukemia, Asthma,

    Cancer, Ghonorhea etc, at first i doubted if it was real but decided to

    give it a try, when i contact this herbal doctor via his email, he prepared

    an ALS herbal portion and sent it to me via courier service, when i

    received this herbal portion, he gave me step by step instructions on how

    to apply it, when i applied it as instructed, i was cured of this deadly

    disease within 7 days, I could not walk or talk understandably before but

    after i took the herbal cure as he instructed i regained strength in my

    bones and i could talk properly unlike before, I am now free from the

    deadly disease, all thanks to Dr. Contact this great herbal doctor via his
