No more lupus or lesions!

I have SLE Lupus and suffer with a connective tissue disease, which manifests as lesions on my body, in my mouth, and on my hands – I’ve had it for over two years. The palm of my hand is constantly rough and raw, and the skin is calloused and hard; I often have to cover it up with a plaster because the skin breaks and bleeds. My doctor has treated it with cortisone creams, but with not much improvement. This has been a continuous battle.

On a recent trip to the Kruger National Park, my cousin gave me a bottle of Nordman Anti-Malaria Artemisia and said to take two capsules every day for a six-day period, and to continue the dosage for three days afterwards. 

After one week of taking the capsules, the lesions on my hands have gone and new skin is growing in place of the hard calloused skin.

I then did more research on the benefits of Artemisia and it really is a miracle plant! 

I wanted to thank Nordman for such a wonderful product.

Not a single case of malaria!

Firstly, I would like to thank you and congratulate Nordman. I work in Central Mozambique where malaria is extremely rife and, since we introduced your product to our camp, we haven’t had a single case of malaria! Our company has grown to almost 20 people and we are all using Nordman’s Anti-Malaria Artemisia. Not only are there are no side-effects but there’s a huge difference in price, too!

You can be proud that you are saving a lot of lives!

No side-effects with Artemisia!

My sojourn to Ghana in the late 1990s was to become an eye-opener for me. As a registered professional geologist (MSc, Pr.Sci.Nat), I was used to sticking it out in the bush – dodging snakes, bullets and landmines; it was all part of my job.

Then the mosquitoes found me, and malaria hit me with a vengeance. I was on prophylactics to avoid contracting the disease however, while taking conventional medication, I got malaria twice! No point in stressing my body any further, I stopped taking the pills which resulted in three bouts of malaria – all within two months!

Back home in South Africa I came across Artemisia, a herbal product deemed to be able to prevent malaria. “Oh well, at least there are no side-effects!” I thought, and on trips into Africa over the following 20 years, I kept taking Artemisia Afra.

This decision was made in the year 2000 and I have since been working in Mozambique, the Congo, Kenya, South Sudan, Zambia, Niger, the Lowveld and the Kruger National Park. It’s been a wonderful experience, Africa at its best – hot sweltering evenings, breathtaking sunsets, and swarms of anopheles mosquitoes all around me…

As for malaria, I never contracted it again after taking Nordman’s Anti-Malaria Artemisia. The malaria problem is not my problem anymore.

Letter to the Nobel Prize Committee

With great joy we have learned that Dr. You You Tu from China has won the Nobel Prize in Medicine. I read about her struggle on Wikipedia and I’m very impressed with her determination. Her victory has cast some light on Artemisinin, a medication used to treat malaria.

She “discovered” the plant and the technique to prepare it in a 900 year-old Chinese medicine book and then found a way to synthesize it, prompting mass production in the pharmaceutical industry. This has already happened in Angola where the drug Coartem is given to the population free of charge.

Now there is a plant called Artemisia Afra, which is produced by a South African company run by a doctor who manufactures organic anti-malaria Artemisia pills, and is determined to help end the plight of malaria in sub-Saharan Africa.

Artemisinin makes up one part of the plant; the entire Artemisia plant is more potent and can be used to treat other ailments. In order to produce similar effects, the pharmaceutical industry added synthetic components to pure Artemisinin, and then rebranded the drug as “Coartem”.

I myself have suffered from chronic malaria for over 13 years, and have had cerebral malaria twice. After taking my first prescription of Nordman’s Anti-Malaria Artemisia, I have contracted malaria again.

We gave both products to our 300 humanitarian landmine clearance staff in Angola and they seem to work the same – the only difference being the price! We can also use Nordman’s product for prevention – what makes Artemisia Afra so rare is that it is used for prevention and cure!

So now Dr. You You Tu wins a Nobel Prize for synthesizing something she did not discover. Meanwhile, Nordman is facing legal threat despite the fact that their therapy has already saved thousands of lives.

This is a scandal and the reason why I am writing to the Nobel Prize Committee. If the pharmaceutical industry succeeds, it will have ripple effects to Nordman, its employees, and the farmers who cultivate it!

In addition to the highly laudable program of distributing mosquito nets to malaria-hit areas, I urge the Namibian government to distribute locally produced organic Artemisia in bulk.

Yours sincerely,

Shark cartilage to the rescue!

I have suffered from arthritis for the last 15 years. Sleepless nights and very swollen fingers were just a few of the discomforts I lived with. For years I took painkillers to alleviate the pain, knowing full well the side-effects they had on my liver and body.

Then I was introduced to Nordman Shark Cartilage.

At first, I was very sceptical about taking shark cartilage but I decided to give it a try. One of the deciding factors to start taking Nordman Shark Cartilage was the fact that it is a 100% natural product. It would do no harm to my body.

I started taking Nordman Shark Cartilage capsules daily and it took three weeks before mobility came back to my hands. The swelling went down and the pain subsided.

After sticking to the routine for two months, I’m able to do my needlework again. I haven’t felt this good in a very long time and frequently receive compliments from friends on how well I’m looking.

“I was at fracture point, until…”

Five years ago I was diagnosed with osteoporosis. I was at fracture point and had lost 24% of bone density. The specialist prescribed I.V. cocktails every three months for a year. Additionally, I had to take a host of other medication and exercise every day. I started taking Nordman Shark Cartilage in December 1998. My daily intake was eight capsules.

On 15 June 1999, I had my annual bone density check-up. It showed that my hip had improved and my vertebrae were in perfect condition. My bone density had improved to such an extent that the specialist had the confidence to advise I stop the medication – all because of Nordman Shark Cartilage.

“I’ve never played better tennis!”

I have been a very active and competitive tennis player all my life. However, over the last few years I have been unable to play due to osteoarthritis in my lower spine.

Physiotherapy and anti-inflammatory temporarily relieved the pain, but whenever I stopped treatment, I was unable to play tennis again.

My GP suggested I take Nordman Shark Cartilage as a supplement. After six weeks, I was pain-free and slowly started playing tennis again. I eventually went on to win my club’s veteran championship at Sun City.

The injury is a distant memory…

I had a freak accident! A garage door fell onto the lower part of my back which cracked several vertebrae and left me bedridden for weeks. After a few months, I was able to get up but the pain never left subsided.

My doctor suggested I take Nordman Shark Cartilage and I have never looked back (excuse the pun!). The pain is gone and the injury is a distant memory!

“Nothing could relieve my pain”

It started in March 1999. My neck suddenly went stiff, giving me unbearable pain. My friends sent me to a chiropractor but that didn’t help. I tried to live with the torment in the hope that it would go away. But it didn’t.

Then the headaches came and a few days later I blacked out. My husband rushed me to the doctor who prescribed painkillers and anti-inflammatory drugs. He sent me to a neurosurgeon; my MRI scan showed C4 and C5 vertebrae out of alignment. The cartilage had degenerated and trapped a blood vessel causing the endless torture. After manipulation and stretching – four days of agony – I felt worse!

I was in a ward with other arthritis and neck-pain sufferers, one of them a gymnast who was 15 years younger than me. After fusion surgery, she had lost mobility. The thought of a fusion terrified me – irreversible with no cure guaranteed!

Back home, getting out of bed was a long, painful mission. I couldn’t move my neck and my mobility was declining. My business was suffering and I was losing all hope. To make matters worse, burglars ransacked my home and so I called my insurance broker. When she saw me, she was shocked – “You look terrible!” she said. I burst into tears and told her my story. To my surprise, she had just the answer.

Nordman Shark Cartilage.

Anti-inflammatories and painkillers didn’t help. Stretching and physiotherapy failed. Could nothing relieve my constant misery!

As a sufferer of painful osteoarthritis, she started taking Nordman Shark Cartilage and was soon feeling good as new.

I went on to Nordman’s website and purchased the capsules, which I took three times a day. I was encouraged by the fact that they are 100% natural. I already stopped taking painkillers and anti-inflammatories as they had no effect!

On 26 June 1999, I got out of bed and was no longer in pain. I couldn’t believe it! I stood straight up and moved my neck. Still no pain. Three years on, the headaches haven’t returned. Thanks to Nordman, I can live a normal life again.
