Within 3 to 6 weeks,
she made a complete recovery... her blood became clean and cancer free, her heart & immune system was strong; damaged organs were restored; fur which had previously fallen out re-grew reconditioned, thick & glossy and she experienced no negative side-effects.
The Vet, (astonished with her speedy recovery), wrote a full report and advised Dounne to send it to the British Medical Association
for research, but sadly they showed no interest. However, being a trained Chemical and Bacteriological Laboratory Technician,
Dounne was advised by other medical professionals to set up an independent (in-house) research using herself, family, customers and their pets, to assess the tea's effectiveness on both humans and animals. The results proved equally astonishing not just on cancer sufferers, but also on a much wider range of conditions. Although the tea is not a medicine, it has often healed where medication failed she noticed it did not interact with medication or caused negative side-effects. The customer testimonies speaks for themselves.
Spiritual guidance also confirmed to Dounne that 'good or bad health' has nothing to do with 'genes', but with 'what we eat'
and that the one thing we all have in common (including animals) is BLOOD, which needs to be kept constantly clean, nourished and alkaline; also keep our IMMUNE SYSTEM 'strong' in order to maintain 'good health',
prevent and stave off illness.
Happily, drinking the tea daily, Zara lived for an additional 5 years, no secondary tumours
ever developed and she maintained a good quality of life. In 1999, she eventually died peacefully from old age at 15; and the tea was named ZARA'S HERBAL TEA in her loving memory. It should be noted that her 5 years survival is the equivalent of 35 years for humans, which surpasses the standard 5 year remission for 'synthetic cancer drugs'.
In 2008, after 14 years of in-depth research proved the tea to be 'safe, effective & non-toxic', it was finally approved by the Public Health Minister
for palliative care in hospitals and hospices. Sadly within 6 months, it was unlawfully banned
by UK Regulator 'MHRA' ('The Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency'), enforcing the EU Food Supplements Directive and 1939 Cancer Act.
Luckily Dounne was aware that British and American scientists had been conducting extensive research for over 25 years on the African Bush Willow, and were developing experimental 'synthetic cancer drugs'. The ban therefore proved controversial as it indicated serious conflicts of interest between the UK Regulator and the Pharmaceutical industry. The emotional effect of the ban was devastating, as it forced Dounne to watch helplessly, whilst customers and others suffered unnecessarily. From inception, she challenged the legitimacy of the ban, to keep her incredible healing tea available to customers, cancer sufferers and the wider public. Five years on in 2011, she finally found a 'lawful'
way forward by creating a unique document called 'The Declaration of Truth'
which enables everyone to exercise their Inalienable / Sovereign Rights
(i.e. FREE-WILL choice) to purchase any product from the GRAMMA'S range.
Zara's story brought to light, 'lack of consumer health choice'; 'corporate corruption', and 'collusion within the 'Medical Regulatory Authorities'. This was the inspiration that sparked the launch of Dounne's health awareness campaign 'Joining Hands In Health'
and petitions THE NATION SPEAKS - No! Not In My Name & Global Voices Unite
...which aims to safeguard our rights, health choices, natural foods, cultural heritage and the Environment.
