  1. I was so lucky to get rid of my Multiple Fibroids by Dr Alaho Olu on YouTube channel. My Fallopian Tube was blocked and I wasn’t able to give birth but now after using Dr Alaho Olu on YouTube herbs I was cured totally so I will advise you all to contact him…

  3. I am new to plant based eating I looked at a few others for help to get me started and wasn’t satisfied with their approach it didn’t motivate me at all but you actually gave me some tips thank you for keeping your channel still active for a late bloomer like myself and yes I did subscribe 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻

  4. Good suggestions but it's not enough to be plant based. I started off going plant based for health but I've realized that most people will not change for health or environmental reasons. You have to make the ethical connection. Go vegan!

    I love your Chanel, follow your receipts, I started plant based diet 7 months ago snd I feel good, I wish I new long time ago what I know now.

  12. I was haven herpes 2 on my private part. I have had them for about 2 and a bit years. I am so scared what my mates are going to says if there should fined out i have herpes on my private part and due to the virus my girlfriend broke up with me. I have been to the Doctors 9 times to get it treated. They all come back. I have been using Tee Tree Oil and Wartner (You freeze them at home) and they seem to be keeping the smaller herpes small but they can't seem to treat the larger ones. They don't get any bigger, but then they can't shrink as much. They get smaller a little part at a time. At least they are getting smaller! As soon as I see a new herpes appearing, then I treat it. At the moment I have been using Tee Tree twice a week and then using Wartner every 2 weeks. I was wondering if there was any other information about how to get rid of it. I am only a teenager and I hate it most when it get pi-chins me to scratch it, it get sweets when scratching it most times! I want to get rid of it so bad! DR.henrry website has been a huge help and has helped me realize a lot more about me and my family of genital herpes! so that was when i switch for natural remedy to see if there could be any help by herbal remedy, i search and i saw a great posts by Sarah devise adebayo ehijactor and shanttel Merritt on about the great herbal doctor that get them rid of there disease infection. and this great herbal doctor was called DR.henrry so that was when i contacted him for my own treatment and he prepared me some herbs which i takes for some couples of days, and i take it as he says before i am to no me and my family was perfectly cure for it and never experience it again. please friends if you have herpes virus and you really wants to get rid of it, please contact this great DR.HENRRY for herbal treatment and you will get rid of it.

  13. Hi Anja, I am glad I found you. I have a overactive thyroid, me and my family is starting on Monday with the plant base diet. Any recommendations what I can eat/not eat with my overactive thyroid? Hope to hear from you♡

  14. all the plant based ppl I have heard on here all speak about eating fruit. IF I dare eat fruit I dont lose a single ounce !! I started PB in Feb of this year, lost 35 lbs pretty quickly and now? Not a blasted ounce will move and I eat RARELY a 1/4 banana in my oatmeal occasionally. I am VERY disappointed.

  15. This is really great advice for someone just starting. Thank you for sharing this video.

  16. I want to give a testimony on how I got cured from Herpes Virus. Few months back I was having some symptoms . I went to see a doctor and many blood tests was done on me, later on I was told I had Herpes. My doctor told me that there's no cure for Herpes I felt bad, I went online searching for a possible cure for Herpes Virus, I saw a post of Dr Ozula a herbal doctor that cured someone from Herpes. I contacted him and told him how I'm feeling he said his herbal medicine can cure me. He sent me the medicine via Courier Service and I received the medicine some days after he sent it, i took the medicine as prescribed by him. Before the completion of the medication the symptoms stopped. I went to the doctor and carried out another blood test, surprisingly I was Negative. I haven't had any symptoms anymore, you can contact him no whatsapp +2347050891914 or you can Email: [email protected]
