Popayan, Cauca, Colombia
"I am 63 years old. I suffered from asthma, heart disease, rheumatism, migraine, fever, bone pain everywhere and a lot of heat in my hands and feet. I perspired at night and I could only be covered with a thin white sheet. Then I was connected to an oxygen tank which later did not have much effect. I lived like this for several months. I could not do anything. I could not even put on my socks nor take a bath. Others had to do everything for me. I was also very bored."
Pachal, District: Ratnagiri,

Nuevo Piura, Cajamarca, Peru
"I am a teacher in a school in Nuevo Piura in the Department of Cajamarca. I suffered from high fever and tonsilitis. The medical doctors told me that my tonsils were rotten and that they could not operate me because my whole throat was like a big wound. They could not do anything for me. Due to the injections of Penicillin and Benzetacin I developed an allergy to many things, even water."
