    1. Thank you for appreciating my efforts my aim is to make professionals as well as general public aware of various diseases so that they seek proper medical help and protect them from getting misleaded.

  1. OMG. That killer virus is too dangerous. 4 years ago my two brothers got that fever but God saved their lives. I never believe before that but Papita’s juice is the one saved my brothers. You know being in the medical field you get so focused on only on medicine and not on miracles but they do happened.

    1. Miracles happens when you have faith and dedication towards your work. We have seen many cases in which patient have overcame from debilitating conditions only because of their will power and their inner strength, this faith and strength results in miracles.
