you suffer from allergies, asthma, arthritis, or just
about any common ailment... we found a man who says
he has a simple remedy for you that's completely natural.
Phil Shuman personally put him to the test in today's
We spend billions on pills, prescriptions and procedures...
but honestly, has modern medicine left you, well, sick?
The cure for what ails you could actually be an ancient
Chinese secret. Majid Ali says, "The people that
have tried everything else and it hasn't worked, they're
pretty much a candidate for herbs."
Plants, roots, and flowers... Herbalogists like Majid
Ali use them all to treat everything from allergies
and arthritis to migraines and menopause. So how does
he know which botanicals work best? By checking out
your tongue and feeling your pulse.
Since she was a child, singer Susan Kohler suffered
from asthma and chronic respiratory infections. It got
so bad it almost ended her career. She tells us, "I
didn't have a medicine cabinet full of medication. I
had a kitchen cabinet full."
Majid switched her pills for herbs and after two years
Susan is no longer gasping for breath. She says, "That
feeling of wellness it's just always there and that
just makes me healthier and happier."
This sounds too good to be true. Our own Phil Shuman
wanted to see for himself if Chinese medicine really
works. For years he's been fighting extreme exhaustion
late in the day.
The cause has been puzzling to his own doctor, Martin
Smietanka. He ran a series of tests, al normal. No luck
finding what was sapping my strength. The doctor says,
"He does all the things that people should do to
stay healthy and prevent illness."
So still battling fatigue, Phil decided to put Majid
and his herbs to the test.
Phil: You're saying you can feel my pulse and tell me
what's wrong with me?
Majid: Yep... is it small, is it big? It gives you an
indication of what symptoms that person might be experiencing.
According to Chinese medicine, both the strength of
the pulse and the appearance of your tongue show which
organs aren't working right. The herbs help repair that
Majid noticed, "There's a little red tip and then
the scalloped edges."
In Phil?s case that meant his lungs and kidneys weren't
working well enough... zapping his energy. So Majid
mixed up 15 herbs for him to take four times a day.
Three weeks later... a big difference. Phil had no more
fatigue for the first time in years! Majid and his mixture
made a believer out of him and why not? This is not
new age medical mumbo-jumbo. Chinese herbololgy has
been around for 5,500 years and still going strong!
And here's the EXTRA info on a couple of other herbal
treatments. For insomnia try valerian root and chamomile.
A common herbal P.M.S. treatment uses chasteberry (chas'-tuh-bear-ee)
and black cohosh (coh-hahsh).
