"I wish to appeal to the world. First, I am not a quack or a
charlatan or a sensationalist. I am an old man who has seen much. I wish
the world to know that there is a faint ray of hope that emanates from
It is a plant which is almost on the point of extinction, a plant called
'Suderlandia Fructosate'. This plant works miracles on people who have
the terrible disease called Aids. And it is so miraculous that the
miracles are seen within a week or a fortnight. A person, who was lying
down on the point of death, when given this plant, rises and has much
energy and is free of depression and has a good appetite. And I feel
that as a nation, as a matter of world emergency, because the big
scientists have not produced a viable safe treatment for aids. I say
that this plant should be planted by all caring governments, by all
caring organisations and that it should be given to human beings free of
You don't have do anything with the plant. You are going to laugh about
this. You plant the plant okay, but then you take the little leaves and
the red flowers from it and you put them in a tea cup and you pour much
boiling water on it. And then you let the cup stand there, like tea you
know, and you just drink, the patient just drinks.
You can take them straight from the garden. You don't need to dry them
first? because if you dry them too much they somehow loose some of their
good spirit. Now this is all you do.
You know, what I say is this. I can't cure the people of Africa without
curing the people of the Caribbean, because Aids is running around the
world. If I cure the people here and they get better, more Aids will
come in and eat the same people whom I tried to cure. So the whole world
must be cured.
You need to take a fine sandpaper and sandpaper each little seed. The
seeds are very tiny, tinier than grape seeds. And you sandpaper each
seed and you plant it in a small flower pot. And you allow it to grow
until it is about maybe four inches, three inches high. Then you take it
and you plant it in the big veld (grassland). You can make a big garden,
maybe twenty acres or so and you plant there. They just grow. There are
farmers who have already planted them but they are too few. This is a
world emergency and we must not be selfish.
In the last few years or so there has been many claims made by people
about plants and herbs, which they say are beneficial in the fight
against aids. Some of these claims have proven to be false and at best
have proven to be exaggerations. But in South Africa there is plan,
which is on the brink of extinction.
This plant is called by white people in English 'Suderlandia Fructosate'.
This plant is also called by the Afrikaans people 'kankerbos', which
means cancer bush or 'kalkoenbos', which means turkey bush. Now this
plant was known in South Africa and other parts of Sub-Saharan Africa
for thousands of years. It was an anti-depressant, it was appetite
booster, it was also and still is a dramatic booster of the human immune
For many years African people and Xhoi-xhoi people and Xhoi-san people
as well as Bantu people used this plant in the fight against cancer, and
it was very effective there, and it still is. And they used it also in
the fight against diseases like tuberculosis before there was
streptomycin and other drugs to fight tuberculosis.
In the old days when ordinary venereal disease like gonorrhea, syphilis
and others were as incurable as Aids is today, our people used this
plant to fight those diseases. If they had not had this plant, the black
people of Southern Africa would have been destroyed just as the
Australian Aborigines were destroyed, and other races of aboriginal
people in other parts of the world were brought to extinction by
diseases brought in from Europe.
Now, we have found... me and a group of doctors, that it is having a
dramatic impact in creating a better quality of life. People with
full-blown aids, people who had been sent home to die find a better
quality of life within the space of a month or a fortnight. I do not
claim that this plant, dramatic as the results are is the cure for Aids.
I say it is a stopgap, which must be used by all human kind in order to
halt the disease of Aids. Until such a time as the pharmaceutical
scientists can come up with a real cure, a cure which is not at all
toxic. I say that this plant 'Suderlandia' is not at all toxic. One 'Suderlandia
plant' is capable of treating 10 people, and we need plantations of this
There is hope, a little ray of hope, a green ray of hope, emanating from
South Africa, and I call on all human fellow human beings to make it
larger, to spread hope throughout the world. I challenge you to create a
safer, healthier world."
