"I am 23 years old. When I got the diagnosis JRA (Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis), my health was declining fast. I had been a perfectly normal young man. I did a lot of sports. This was something I liked a lot. But, practically in one year, I was in bed and I could not move. My body was swollen and all joints hurt. I could not even eat because of the pain.
I could not do anything. In my house, everyone was desperate. They also suffered a lot with my pain. My mom, whenever she heard about any recommended remedy, she made it for me or took me to any doctor and to all kinds of things.
For some reason, I heard on the radio, that Prof. Abel was coming to town with Homa Therapy. My mom was eager to get me there. But, because I could not move, it was very difficult. Some neighbors of mine, very good friends, decided to bring me on a bicycle. I sat on the bike and they pushed it and brought me here. That was torture for me, because I could not even bear to be touched, due to the swelling of my body. We arrived late. We arrived when the therapy was almost finishing. At that moment, the Agnihotra ash was handed out. For me it was somewhat strange, but I was so tired from the trip, so I sat down and also received Agnihotra ash.
Five minutes after taking the Agnihotra ash, something impressive happened – I felt the desire to get up, I did and I could stand by myself! When I left this place, I went by bicycle, but I returned alone, riding it!
So far, standing on my feet and bending my knees was something I had not been able to do.
For me, that was something totally strange, because I had come unable to stand, unable to walk, or do anything like this for a long time. But thereafter, my recovery process began. The swelling of my body began to diminish.With the help of the Agnihotra ash, I began to gain control over my body. The exams, my doctors do, seem always good.
I lead practically a normal life. I can walk, run. Yes, Homa Therapy has sustained me so far and I keep practicing it.
And another truth, about 6 months ago I joined a dance academy. Now, I dance salsa and it feels very good.
My thanks to Professor Pedro Henry Ariza, who has been a very important person in my life. If it was not for him and the Homa Therapy session he did and does here in the SENA weekly, I would not be standing here today. Thank you!"
