From Legionnaire's Disease to Zero medication in 73yr old woman - no more nebulizer

I used this Yamoa Powder many years ago. I had Legionnaire’s Disease (from an air conditioner) I doctored for 6 months and they finally said it had turned into asthma. They had me on inhalers and using a nebulizer daily. Results: I could breathe better after treatment but was not getting any better. I sat up for six months in bed to sleep otherwise I couldn’t breathe. They (the Doctors) were not curing me of anything, just taking my money to allow me to breathe. I tried one bottle of Yamoa, mixing it with peanut butter. In no time I was off all the medications. It took only about a month. My lungs have been clear for years! I am ordering now because I want to keep some on hand and I am having a problem with phlegm (I think from sinus drainage) and its worth a try to see if works on that. By the way I’m 73 and on no medications.

81yr old man now walks miles without stopping for breath. Brother says, "like witnessing a miracle"

Dear Sir, my oldest brother is 81yrs. old and had asthma for 26yrs. He had four inhalers which he used daily. He used one in the morning after just getting out of bed and another after breakfast, then another at noon time and another at bedtime. He also had another which his specialist told him was only to be used as a last resort. He also had an oxygen bottle, stand and mask at home which he occasionally used. At 75yrs. of age he took one treatment of Yamoa Powder during which time he stopped using two of his regular inhalers. Then feeling some what better he tried another treatment of capsules and at the same time, stopped using the other two regular inhalers. He stopped using the oxygen mask also but carried with him his fifth inhaler which was supposed to be for emergencies only for the next two years. He then put it in the garbage he realized that he didn't need it anymore.

I love my brother and it was like witnessing a miracle, a man that could not walk more than 75 to 100yds without having to stop for 5 to 10 minutes to catch his breath, now walked with me on some days for miles without having to stop. At first his only complaint was that his legs would be sore the next day. We were both so astonished how the Yamoa Powder had in such a short time, completely wiped-out his Asthma health problem. This health problem had effected and limited his whole life style activities for the past two and a half decades. I have since recommended this product to several friends that had problems with their lungs and were using inhalers and they have all after taken Yamoa Powder, gotten rid of their lung problems and inhalers.

I could never promote something that I did not believe in, because that would be against my principles but I have been so impressed with Yamoa Powder that I truly believe that it needs to be promoted to anyone and everyone who has problems with their lungs.

TV Host off All Inhalers - "It is truly miraculous," claims Anne Sweeney

Thank you for your wonderful product! I continue to recommend Yamoa Powder to everyone who has breathing problems. It is truly miraculous. Now I'm ordering Asphalia capsules to see how that will help my husband sleep. Thanks for all you do for natural, long-term health. The Yamoa powder has gotten me off all inhalers, including the Ventolin Rotacaps. I've been using it for 3? allergy seasons now, and have not needed any other breathing help in all that time. It is miraculous. I've referred several friends and associates, and they've all had the same reaction as me. Thank you. God bless you and keep you safe. You are doing something that really matters.

Exercise-Induced Asthmatic Girl Runs Record Mile - and Forgets her Inhaler.

I tried the yamoa capsules for myself and my daughter with much skepticism. I have tried other "natural" remedies in the past with poor results. Upon opening the first bottle my daughter and I commented it must not work as it did not smell and it did not leave an aftertaste. Within a week we began noticing results. Living in the Midwest, both my daughter and I have allergies (compounded by previously broken noses and deviated septums). In addition, my daughter has exercise induced asthma. Within a month, my daughter ran the mile in school for p.e. She came home beaming. It seems she had forgotten her inhaler and still had a record time. Most importantly, she commented "Mom, my lungs never felt more open. This stuff is great." I just wish we had learned about yamoa earlier. The year before she had tested for hours to earn her black belt in martial arts. During the training and the testing, we had relied on two different asthma medicines in addition to an inhaler, massage, and osteopathic manipulation. She now has a friend with asthma getting ready to test for her black belt (the average exam lasting 5+ hours). We have gladly passed on the yamoa to her friend with a full endorsement. Thank you Yamoa

Eleven-Year-Old Boy With Exercise-Induced Asthma Relieved of Symptoms Within 2 Days

I started my 11-year-old son on the program March 15, two weeks ago, with the powder stirred into honey. He has had virally- and exercise-induced asthma, probably from birth, but for most of his days since age 1-1/2. He did get somewhat better in recent years, when he has not been sick for the entire October to June period as previously, and the extreme congestion and coughing that made him suffer so severely also have lessened somewhat.

When I began him on the powder, he had been congested and coughing for six weeks after contracting a cold, and normally would have been ill through June. Within two days of taking the powder mixed in honey, most of his symptoms were gone. On a couple of occasions since, I have noticed a bit of congestion and coughing, so he may not be completely over it yet, but he is at least 90% better. Since he is taking it at half dose, he will not complete it until May 15.

We may be unable to tell whether his condition appears to be completely overcome until we get through the October to June period next year, because this is the time during which he usually is ill. He is starting baseball, and if he is running a lot in cold air, we will see whether he avoids an asthma attack, which he has suffered on several occasions in those circumstances. He has already indicated that he feels better during exercise, because his lung passages do not tighten up as they did before.

Regardless whether the condition disappears, it is a profound blessing to know that if he becomes ill, the symptoms can be alleviated immediately. It is such a relief to know that his suffering, which he has endured so stoically, is probably pretty much ended. I am very grateful to you and to Dr. Williams of Alternatives for making this possible. Most of these 11 years, I have resisted the medical advice to take steroids etc., having seen bad side effects and no noticeable improvement during the short time he was on them. I was continually made to feel guilty about this stance, and I will be greatly relieved to be able to avoid these medications in the future. Thank you again for this tremendous benefit.

Pharmacist Says Taking Yamoa "One of the Best Decisions of My Life"

I have suffered with asthma for more than 30 years. I also had a chemical exposure at work that did even more damage to my lungs. The Yamoa Powder has decreased my symptoms dramatically, and allowed me to stop most of the medication I have been on for years. I'm hoping that by using a second pot I will see a full recovery. I am also a pharmacist - so I was very skeptical about a magical powder that could cure asthma, when I read it in Alternatives. I really thought that it was probably a scam, but since I was using 2 oral drugs and 3 inhalers when my breathing was really bad - and I knew that there was no hope for my getting any better - only worse with time if I stuck to my current path - I figured I had nothing to lose. Giving Yamoa Powder a try is by far one of the best decisions of my life! Thank you for sharing Akua's secret powder with me.

Sincerely Marian Bobyak

Dear Friend Feels "Healthier and Happier than She has Felt in Many, Many Years"

I'm happy to report that Lisa is having wonderful results already and she has only been on the powder for 10 days. We are such good friends but she was not able to come into my house because I have dogs and cats. Just yesterday, she was able to come in and even pet my cat without going into a full blown attack. We were also able to go for a walk through our favorite wooded area without her using her inhaler or even getting winded. She says she feel healthier and happier than she has felt in many, many years. Please pass our thanks along to the makers of this wonderful product. We feel so privileged to have it in our possession. It's like we've discovered a gold mine. We plan on telling as many people as possible about your product. THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF OUR HEARTS!!!!!

Life Without Dependence on Claritin-D, Advair Described as "Miraculous and Exciting"

I have used Yamoa Powder for almost three months now. I ordered my fourth month just recently. Since beginning my usage, I have not had to use Advair once or use any inhalers. I still have some sneezing and sometimes, a very little tinge of tightness in my chest, but all in all, this has been miraculous and exciting, because those other drugs prescribed by the Doctor caused me a variety of side effects and concerns. I still take allergy shots once a week and when I do, I use Claritin-D only for that day. So, from the bottom of my heart, thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Please feel free to use my testimony in any web or any other form of advertising that you use.

Asthmatic Runs Distance of 50-70 Meters Without Coughing or Using Inhalers


For the first time I can really say my chest is as cleared as anything.

Since I started using the drug [Yamoa], I have noticed a lot of changes, for instance this is the first time I could ran a distance of 50-70 meters without actually coughing badly which any asthmatic patient would acknowledge. As of now I don't use any inhalers again but I feel okay. If surely this signals the end of my asthma then you would be my hero.

16 Year Old Better Chance with A Levels after Taking Yamoa™ for Hay Fever

My 16 year old daughter has just about chewed her way through her Yamoa Powder and honey (lots of moaning) and I must admit she has been a lot better since taking it, not as much sneezing and not as bunged up. She still takes anti histamine but the symptoms are nowhere near as bad. She is currently taking her A levels and I feel confident that she has the best chance of fulfilling her potential now she feels better within herself. I am really glad she tried it and I will be recommending it to others.

Thank you. Yours faithfully, S B Johns

Man with Persistent Bronchial Condition "Astonished" by Improvement after One Month

I took yamoa powder for a month, about three months ago. This was primarily for a bronchial condition that has persisted for 3 -4 years, without any relief from antibiotics, inhalers, etc. I am certain the yamoa powder has taken care of the bronchitis but I still have a slight case of asthma so I reordered the yamoa today to see if it might also take care of the asthma. I was really astonished that the bronchial problem is better. After I finished the first order (30 days), it continued to work afterwards. I haven't had the coughing problem for two months now. I am looking forward to using another month's supply for the asthma.

Woman Thinks it's a "Like a Miracle" after Barely Able to Walk to Mailbox

I had such bad bronchitis I could barely walk to my mailbox, wheezing and puffing. I really couldn't imagine what I was going to do for myself. Then I heard about Yamoa Powder and sent for it as a last resort. I have only taken one day's course so far, and there is a dramattic difference in my breathing. It is like a miracle! I would like to be able to reach out to other sufferers in this country and tell them my story (and there are millions of them) -- I know they would buy your wonderful product.

How does Yamoa work?

Independent researchers from Montana State University in the USA have determined how the unique active ingredients found in Yamoa correct your immune system to respond normally to allergens.

Yamoa works on the root cause of your symptoms by altering your immune system’s response to allergens, normalising your reaction to them and so eradicating symptoms.

Because Yamoa changes the immune system and doesn’t just manage or mask symptoms, like many people you may find that a two month course is enough Yamoa™ to give you long-lasting benefits.

Powerful properties

Other powerful properties discovered in Yamoa™ by independent researchers from London, France and the Ivory Coast combine to make it a wonderful all-round health supplement.

The top 5 Yamoa™ research findings:

• An effective anti-inflammatory
• Improves white blood cell counts
• Yamoa polysaccharides stimulate innate immunity
• An effective antibacterial
• Yamoa slants allergic immune response on a molecular level

Frequently asked questions

1. What exactly is Yamoa?

Yamoa™ Powder comes in 30gm containers of pure Funtumia elastica ground bark powder. The Yamoa™ Capsules contain 500mg pure Funtumia elastica ground bark powder, 10mg Magnesium stearate B.P., and a vegan cellulose capsule.
Yamoa™ powder 30gm contains pure Funtumia elastica bark powder. The capsules are pure powder with a small amount of magnesium stearate as an anti-caking agent, and a cellulose (vegan) capsule.
POWDER: Mix the entire contents of the 30gm bottle thoroughly with an average size jar of honey, about 1lb (454gm). Stir well until the powder is completely mixed, also stir the mixture each time you use it. Adults: One 5 ml standard teaspoonful twice a day for one month continuously. Children: under the age of 12: Half a 5ml teaspoon twice a day for one month continuously. OR take 1/4 of a 5ml teaspoon of powder twice a day with a glass of water or fruit juice, tea or any beverage, an eighth of a teaspoon for children. FOR BEST RESULTS, FINISH ENTIRE MIXTURE EVEN IF RELIEF IS FOUND AT AN EARLY STAGE OF TREATMENT. CAPSULES: Adults: 1 capsule twice a day (morning and evening) with water. Children aged 12 and under: 1/2 capsule twice a day (morning and evening) mixed in honey or jam, maple syrup or other foodstuff to mask bitter taste. If the child is old enough to swallow the capsule, only half of the powder will require mixing with honey (or other). IT IS IMPORTANT NOT TO STOP YOUR OR YOUR CHILDS CURRENT MEDICATION WITHOUT YOUR DOCTORS ADVICE.
The guide is really just twice a day, at a decent interval of a good 6-8 hours - it does not have to be specifically at mealtimes, although people usually find it easier not to forget to take the dose if taken at these benchmarks in the day.
The pure Yamoa™ should be emptied completely into the honey and mixed thoroughly, then stirred before each dose is taken. Using the right amount of honey/jam (approx. 1lb/454gm) ensures that the correct dose is taken. Please remember a child's dose is half a teaspoon of the mixture, and the mixture will be taken over approximately 2 months in all for a child.
You can mix it with a jam, brown rice syrup, pure maple syrup, water or any beverage. It can also be sprinkled into baby cereals or yoghurt for young children or babies - honey is not recommended for babies under 1 year due to the risk of Botulism (bacteria in honey). Yamoa™ tastes bitter, so it is better mixed with something sweet. If you are a diabetic, you are best advised to mix it with a low sugar carrier. We have Yamoa™ in Capsule form, which is ideal for people who cannot take Yamoa™ mixed in honey.
Most people find they get results within the first two months. Some people obviously need more than two months, but some people do take the powder for longer for a variety of reasons. Many people experience changes in their condition within the first two weeks, but it is best to take the mixture until the course is finished entirely.
It has been a long-term solution for many people. We tend generally to supply second courses to people who are re-ordering on behalf of their friends or relatives rather than themselves, but obviously some people may require follow-up treatment consecutively or the following season. Others tend to buy again for themselves to have the product to hand 'just in case'. It is a very subjective remedy, and we cannot categorically say that you will only need the one course.
We have found that people who have had their condition for many years, and who are in the senior age bracket, have generally required more than one course of Yamoa™ before beginning to feel substantial benefits. This may be down to the fact that the condition is long-standing, and that an older person has a longer history of illness and stress, which may mean a reduced immune system capacity, which may make it harder to recover from a condition as quickly as a younger person or a child. With this in mind, it may mean that although Yamoa™ may not appear to improve your condition within a month, it may need longer to establish its healing properties and boost your immune system against the triggers which cause your asthma. Persevering with Yamoa™ for more than one month may therefore bring better results.
Hay fever sufferers have been known to take Yamoa™ in the winter, and it has remained effective for the following hay fever season. Others have found relief from their symptoms after taking it at the beginning of the season. Others find they take it at the beginning of the season each year. Most people who take it whilst they are suffering symptoms, find relief within a couple of weeks of taking it. It is always recommended to take the dose every day until the course is finished completely even if relief is found early on in treatment. One course (two months) is usually enough for one person.
We have had isolated reports (from single people) of a reaction of a rash, water-retention, a tickly cough, stomachache and palpitations (when taking blood pressure tablets also). Some people may respond initially to Yamoa™ with what is termed as a 'healing reaction' (sometimes known as a healing 'crisis' or Herxheimer reaction). This is when symptoms seem to worsen before they start to improve, and it can be quite alarming for some people, particularly asthma sufferers. Please bear this in mind, and although it is rare with Yamoa™, it is common with many complimentary therapies. Please be sure, particularly if you suffer from respiratory attacks such as in asthma, that you always carry your emergency medication with you at all times, even if you feel Yamoa™ has helped you combat your condition. We do not recommend you take Yamoa™ if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, or if you are on blood pressure medication. We also do not recommend mixing the powder with honey or another sweet carrier if you suffer from fungal infections in the respiratory tract (see Powder versus Capsules questions below). If you find you are experiencing any adverse symptoms from taking Yamoa™, please let us know. Please see our 'drug interactions' question.
We have had feedback from one lady regarding a possible interaction between Yamoa™ and her daily dose of 0.5mg of Norvasc (blood pressure medication), resulting in palpitations which increased in severity the longer she used the powder. She ceased use of the powder, and her palpitations disappeared after a few days. This is the only drug interaction we know of to date. Tests to establish whether it could interact with any one medication taken by any given individual are impossible to conduct due to the enormity of the task (there are so many drugs and drug combinations being taken), that we cannot give a conclusive guarantee that this will never happen, therefore it is strictly your decision as to whether you will go ahead and use Yamoa™ whilst on your current medications. If you experience any signs that an adverse reaction is happening to you when you take Yamoa™, you must stop immediately and consult your healthcare specialist, and inform us so that we can advise others of possible interactions.
We do not recommend that pregnant or breastfeeding women or people on High Blood pressure medications take Yamoa™.
Yamoa™ has been microbiologically analysed to clinically confirm that it is free from nasties such as Salmonella and E-Coli, Faecal Coliforms and Faecal streptococci. The conclusion to the tests was: "The analyses undertaken provided no evidence of the presence of pathogenic bacteria on any of the samples examined". Further research (Graff JC et al, Polysaccharides derived from Yamoa™ (Funtumia elastica) prime γδ T cells in vitro and enhance innate immune responses in vivo, Int Immunopharmacol (2009), doi:10.1016/j.intimp.2009.07.015) found that Yamoa™ in fact "may be effective as therapeutic innate immunostimulants in Salmonella enterica serotype typhimurium infection and potentially other infectious disease settings." It has also been tested by the Centre for Scientific Research into Plant Medicine (MINISTRY OF HEALTH), Ghana, by S. Osafaro-Mensah MSc. These tests were performed between 1996 and 1998. Mr Osafaro's conclusions to the tests were "The investigation and clinical trials conducted have shown that Yamoa™ is safe for human use...and when the bark is dried it can be safely stored for up to 6yrs before being ground for use". A peer reviewed scientific research paper, (Graff JC et al, Polysaccharides derived from Yamoa™ (Funtumia elastica) prime γδ T cells in vitro and enhance innate immune responses in vivo, Int Immunopharmacol (2009), doi:10.1016/j.intimp.2009.07.015) conducted by Montana State University's Molecular Biology department determined that Yamoa™ "appears safe" with "no evidence of toxic or other adverse effects". Jodi Hedges, one of the lead researchers on Yamoa™ explained when interviewed, "We think that in vivo the main response to polysaccharides is that they prime the cells, to better respond to other signals. They do not overtly stimulate the cells, and they do not induce inflammatory cytokines. Targeting these gd T cells and NK cells is nifty because these cells are not the source of strong damaging cytokines like IL-1, IL-6 and TNFa, these come from macrophages. gd T cells and NK cells are anti-inflammatory in many situations, and polysaccharides may enhance that capacity as well. Macrophages are not known for this, but also do not appear to be a primary target for these polysaccharides (if they were, we would see more inflammation not less).”
The main differences are the ease of use, the ability to maintain an accurate dosage and the compatibility with a strict sugar or carbohydrate free diet, such as that of a diabetic or someone trying to lose weight, or even someone who needs to avoid sugars due to candidiasis, etc. If you suffer from fungal infections in the respiratory tract, it is better to take the capsules than the honey mixture, or at least do not mix the loose powder into honey or a sweet carrier as the sugar will only exacerbate the condition and it may become worse rather than improve. If you do not know whether you are suffering from a fungal infection, it may be better to opt for the capsules to err on the side of caution.
The loose powder is better for those suffering from seasonal allergies or hay fever when mixed with a local honey, as the honey will itself help to strengthen the immune system against local pollens. It is also more suitable for those suffering from conditions such as MCS (Multiple Chemical Sensitivity) as it does not have the added presence of magnesium stearate, as in the capsules. If you suffer from fungal infections in the respiratory tract, it is better to take the capsules than the honey mixture, or at least do not mix the loose powder into honey or a sweet carrier as the sugar will only exacerbate the condition and it may become worse rather than improve. If you do not know whether you are suffering from a fungal infection, it may be better to opt for the capsules to err on the side of caution.
