    My husband had a stroke, and was having disappointing recovery. I was able to research brain plasticity and so many topics on this site, and I desperately wanted to find something he could use to stimulate the neurons in the brain, but he couldn’t use so many of the things, because of a brain stent. he still was having problem with drop foot and kept falling, but from all the research I did, i found a comment of a stroke patient testifying of how Dr. Adebola helped her recover from stroke completely, after disability of 2 years. With his roots and herbs healing power. So i also contacted Dr. Adebola via email address, and he gave us some instructions and also courier some roots and herbs (herbal medicine) via TRANSWORLD COURIER COMPANY. With a manual for assumption, which we followed accordingly. And today is the 9th day of assumption. And my husband is already walking. Please let’s help anyone around us, going through this suffering. You can also contact Dr. Adebola via email address:, Thanks for reading.
