In 1977 my mother was very sick from jaundice. One night I dreamt of meeting a
prominent traditional healer who was very chubby. In his hand was a plant
called Lanea Humilis. He instructed me on how to use the roots of the
plant in making herbal medicine to cure jaundice. When I woke up I wrote down
all his instructions.
After digging up
the roots of the plant I cut them into little pieces and boiled them with the
leaves of the Citrus Sinensis. Then I filtered the medicine and advised
my mother to drink three cupfuls daily. She used this herbal medicine for two
weeks and gradually recovered. Therefore I thank God for giving me that
fruitful dream which was like a "video without charge."
