Reports from Users of Carao: year 2005

"I am having tremendous results. I have suffered with extreme blood loss for 8 years and was hospitalized in 1997. I refused a blood transfusion which the doctors insisted I needed. While in the hospital I was injected with epogen once a week for two weeks to add oxygen to what little blood I had to help increase the production of red blood cells. Over the next 7 years I would be plagued with extreme fatigue, severe anemia which kept me extremely cold, and malaise. Also I was prescribed iron which of course left me constipated. Nothing worked until your product a few months ago. After two weeks I noticed the color coming back to the palms of my hands and lips, it helps aid me in elimination and I go without a sweater which I was never able to do. I have introduced a friend to your product and ordered her a bottle. She has noticed a difference in just one week. She has more energy and will be checking her blood count after she finishes her bottle. No joke...I am so happy for your product and will not be without it! Thanks so much."

Dear Lloyd:
I received an e-mail from the person you mentioned that think that Carao is a scam. I just thought I'll pass it on to you and read what was said and what was my and his response.

...Here are the e-mails from F. Williams and I.
God Bless,
(F. W)
This is the most unusual email I’ve ever written.  I’m very skeptical about purchasing products (especially those with too-good-to-be-true proclamations about health benefits), I’m been referred to you as a person who has considerable experience with the product Carao.  I hope that you can provide me with valid information concerning the product, and, if possible, some further creditable references.
Thank you in advance for your consideration.
Hello F. Williams,
I don't blame you for being skeptical about anything that sounds too good to be true. I'm very skeptical myself when I read or hear about any new product in the market but, if you don't try them, you will never know.
About the Carao, what I can tell you is, that is a native tree from Nicaragua, the country where was born, and it grows in others country too.  Carao is an old home remedy and food as well.  As a child I was sick very often and very anemic; my mother was advised to give me carao with warm milk every day until I recovered from my anemia and got stronger and rosy cheeks.
I've been in California for 31 years now and I had forgotten about the Carao. I'm  married to a wonderful husband; and about 2 months ago we visited his aunt (82 years old) and found out that she's been sick for almost one year; her doctor diagnosed her with chronic anemia with blood count very low 8.0 and was told that there was no cure for her illness of which I got a little bit upset because, I believe that there is a cure for any illness except for cancer if not caught on time.  I told her that I will help her and will look for some kind of information for her situation. When we got back home I asked my old sweet mother if she knew of any remedy for anemia and the first thing that came out her mind was: Carao and I said, that's right, Carao, you used to give me that when I was a sick child.  The next thing for me to do was to look in the Internet for CARAO and praying and wondering if anybody knew about it and had that precious food. To my delight I found 3 websites of which I ordered 4 bottles of Carao from:  [website has been changed to]
I received my order pretty quick and took it to my aunt in-law and told her to take the dosage as the instructions says and daily. She said she will and her husband will make sure that she will take it 4 times a day.  She took it for a month and it was time to see her doctor again. On the same day she called my husband and gave him the good news, her doctor found her blood count from 8.0 that it was before to 11 almost normal, my aunt in-law  also told her doctor that she was taking carao besides whatever else she had prescribed her, but I can assure you that it was not the drug (predisone) that she was taking that brought her blood count up, for she had been taking it for months with the same results of low blood count. Her doctor read on the info about the carao and told her to keep taking the prescribed drug along with the carao and that she will do some research on it. That made my day because not only her blood count is up but she also has some energy. Now her daughter will be ordering more Carao for her and will continue taking it. I did my part and I'm very happy for her.  I believe in natural food and natural healing. Just don't give up. Belinda 1/2005 CA

(letter from a customer about an 82-year-old with anemia) "...her doctor found her blood count from 8.0 that it was before to 11 almost normal, my aunt in-law also told her doctor that she was taking carao besides whatever else she had prescribed her, but I can assure you that it was not the drug (predisone) that she was taking that brought her blood count up, for she had been taking it for months with the same results of low blood count."

"I just finished telling a lady about carao also I have been recommend it to about 20 people so for . By all means use me. Because this works wonder Also my wife had ammonia in her blood and the carao have helped. bet you didn't know that. - Ken Ardrey, (Oklahoma 2005) email: KR446<@> (remove angle brackets from email address)

Good news. I had my hemoglobin tested on Tuesday (Jan 11th) after taking carao for only 2 weeks and the result was 7.1 (it was 5.8 on Dec 10th).  I am confident that my next blood test, 4-6 weeks from now, will reveal improved levels in both hemoglobin and iron stores. I am feeling better energy levels already.

I'll keep you posted of the next test results. I have enough carao to keep me going for quite some months, I'd say, but I won't let it run out. I'll need it at least until I can dissolve these fibroids and reduce the bleeding - which I anticipate will take at least a few months. After all, I've had them for years! Nina (Australia 2005),
[Lloyd comments: Although carao combats the anemic condition, it should not be considered a solution to bleeding fibroids.  The bleeding must be stopped or controlled.]

"I asked my mother about the question concerning her blood pressure. She stated that she started getting her strength back within 4 days of taking the carao, but it was after 2 bottles before she staring to notice that her blood pressure started to stabilize to normal. She takes 2 blood pressure medicines, but even by taking 2, before taking carao her blood pressure would go into the danger zone day after day. The doctors tried 10 different types of blood pressure medications at different times, but none has given the results needed until she started taking carao with the blood pressure medication..." - Ken (Texas 2005)  for Ken's full account click here

"Thank you so much Lloyd! I love the product. I feel so much better when I am taking it." - Viktoriya (California 2005)

"Lloyd, while I realize I have only been on your product for 6 days, I already feel the difference. I am gaining my energy back and I just feel better overall. Can't imagine how I'll feel in 4 weeks! Am so grateful and excited about this."

(later)  - I am feeling really good and I am taking two doses per day. I am currently at 1/2 a bottle left. Please let me know when they ship out in March or from your Father and your emergency reserve. ... Thanks again for your product, I really feel it has saved me and put me on the right track, I just don't want to break up the regiment I have put myself on and go without it for a very long period of time." - Yvonne (California 2005)

"I also would like you to know for the first time in three years my HGB is normal. now 13,was 7 for three years .thanks Marilyn" (Florida 2005)

"Hi Lloyd, well I got my blood test and the doctor said my blood had come up three points in the last 2 months and when it gets up 3 more points it will be normal. I didn't tell him about this stuff I have been drinking. He only thinks what he prescribes is any good. When my blood gets up to normal, tho, I am going to tell him about your stuff. So--I am back to drinking this stuff everyday again. I go in in a month to have another blood test, so if it is up where it should be, I won't drink anymore. But it is nice to know, if I get anemic again, I can let you know and order more...." - Mary (Colorado 2005)

"I thank you so much for your help in participating in curing my anemia. I have had this  problem for a long time, and i think it has a lot to do with having five children, they sure  took alot from me and i also nursed them all, so that i think maybe have been one of the causes. Not that i am blaming them for this, i was blessed with five children, now, i just want to stay strong to be able to enjoy life with them and not be so tired all the time. I have always wondered if there was any other way to do this instead of taking iron pill with vitamin c. I don't find that they are as effective as your product. I love your product, because it's natural, and i belief in taking natural product for healing. I really dislike taking pill, they are full of chemically, atleast, that's what i believe. I would like to thank you and your father agian. I can not put it in words how i feel. You just made a wonderful woman happier. And for that, may God bless you both.  sincerely, Mary" (Ontario, Canada 2005)

(Recovering Cancer Patient) "... the increase in energy level has been most satisfying. I would like to continue on the Tropical Wonder Carao as I think its benefits for recovering Cancer patients are extraordinary. I feel as good or better than prior to my Cancer." - Richard (Arkansas 2005)

"I had a belated appointment for my procrit test on Friday afternoon. It had been 30 days since my last check of which I previously reported to you. Friday my HGB was 11.7 anf my HCT was 38.3 and I was given 20,000 procrit. This is down from 40,000-60,000 every two weeks for the past 18 months. The other happening, and I am not sure of the significance yet is my insulin usage. It is down to a 10-20 unit shot of 70/30 about every three days. So we have another test in 30 days and I will advise. Needless to day I am pleased with my results which must be from Tropical Wonder

... my kidney function is near normal after nearly quitting on me and the procrit usage has substantially declined". 


(letter from from Ralph to another carao user)

My anemia was caused from chemo therapy I believe. However, I have been obese for years, had open heart in 1992, and thyroid cancer in 2002, I tried "Tropical Wonder" just to see if it would work being an all natural substance, Well, it has. I was taking 40,000 units of procrit every two weeks and an occasional 60,000 dose and one really bad week I got 60,000 on Wednesday and 100,000 on Friday. I went to the lab yesterday and my blood counts were high enough no procrit was administered. Last month for some reason I got 30,000 but the 3 months previous I did not receive any on my monthly visit. My kidney failure is about 60 % I am told. So my case is much different than yours, I started out with two teaspoons night and morning. Today I continue two teaspoons in the morning as my over all feeling well is improved by taking Tropical Wonder. Being a natural product, I cannot see how Tropical Wonder could hurt you. In my case I am happy I found the web site and tried the product. Nothing but good has come from its use.  Ralph, 9/2005 FL

me agrada informarle que su producto que me envio le fue de mucha ayuda a mi madre, Gracias, Celia 5/2005

I was traveling overseas when I took the pure carao extract - so I was consuming it sporadically...  I felt an increase in strength and vitality while taking it though.  I only consumed one of the two bottles I ordered and that too spread out over the course of a month.  But as I said before I felt I had more energy while taking it.  Thanks, Zeeba Rockville, MD 5/2005

"I donated a unit of autologous blood and found that my hemoglobin went up one whole gram because of the carao syrup. I have been taking it for one month to alleviate anemia due to the need to donate two units of blood for my up and coming surgery in Jan. The real test will be next week when they recheck it before giving the second unit. Thank you  for your interest. I will continue it until my surgery is over." (12/17/2004)
"Thank you so much for your interest. The surgery went very well. I had a rapid recovery. I never felt tired sluggish due to the two units of blood I had to donate. I attribute alot of my comfort due to your product. My Hmg and Crit are back to normal. Thank you once again." Sharon 4/26/2005 (Illinois)

Hi Lloyd, I want to thank you for such a wonderful product. I am 33 years old and have been anemic for many years, feeling tired and sleeping during the day was very normal for me, Iv'e been told that my body doesn't absorb iron very well, I was so low in iron that it affected my moods, I became very depressed and tearfull. One of the hardest things I had to cope with was losing handfulls of hair every day.I've been losing hair for about 4 years and have been on every tablet and medicine for hair, but nothing seemed to work,it was having a big strain on my family esp. my husband who i'm sure was so tired of hearing how much hair I was losing every day.I didn't know at the time that all these problems I was having was a result of low iron.I starting to think I had a hormone imbalance, so I went to the doctors to have a blood test done for hormone levels.The results came back normal but my iron levels were very low,my ferritin (iron stores)was 3, my doctor told me to get on iron pills immediately, I knew that the tablets wouldn't help me much (tried before) and knew that there would be something natural out there that could help.I began to search on the net and came across your site, it seemed to be the very thing I was looking for, and with the money back guarantee I knew that I couldn't go wrong.I ordered straight away and after a week received the product.I wasn't keen on the smell or the taste (it tasted better than the smell) but tried it in juice,much better. I went back to the doctors 3 weeks later and my ferritin was up to 29, doc said that I was responding well to the tablets(I knew it as the carao).I've been taking carao for 3 months now, I'm back to feeling happy again and have a lot more energy, thanks to your wonderful product.And best of all my hair has stopped falling out.I'm sure my family would like to thankyou also, because they now have their wife and mother back to her old self.Thanks again.Kind regards, Pauline Sydney, Australia 2005

"Wife says she already notices marked improvement!" - Malcolm (California 2005)

"My 5 year old daughter was born with very poor blood. We tried lots of iron supplements through the years and nothing helped. In November she was tested for cancer antibodies and sure enough had elevated levels because her body was not getting enough oxygen due to the anemia. I prayed for help and was guided to your site. She took Carao for 6 weeks and her blood is the best its ever been (hemoglobin was 11.1 now is 11.8, hematocrit was 30.4 now is 36.7, MCV was 77.3 now 84, RBC was 3.93 now 4.35). My doctor was amazed and recommended another round to see if we could get even more improvement. So here's my order with a few extra bottles for me! God Bless!" - Arlene (Connecticut 2005)


I ordered two bottles from you over a month ago for my girlfriend. She was on the verge of getting a blood transfusion. She has been taking two to four teaspoons a day. She has also been taking 325mg of iron a day as well (half her doctor’s recommended dose of iron). Now her hemoglobin has gone from under 6 to over 9 with a 12 being the normal range in just 4 weeks. Her energy is better and she looks better according to her nurse. I really do believe this product is helping. This is why I am ordering two more bottles. Thank you so much on your speedy delivery on my first order. I really appreciate it. Thanks, Kris, California 2005

(Letter from Dr. Sokoto, M.D. to an inquiry)
"... I can tell you Carao is very effective in anaemic sicklers.  We have been administering it to our sicklers patients who need blood transfusion or who has very low PCV (Pack Cell Volume) and it increases it dramatically in 2-3 weeks period, no side effect on it also."

UPDATE 7/16/2005
In answer to another inquiry, Dr. Sokoto wrote:
"Carao is a new dawn in the management of Sickle Cell Disease and
  We have been giving it on trial for our Sicklers and Anaemic Patients for Good results.

Is the New Food Nutritional Supplement with Anti-Anaemic and Anti-Sickling Properties.

  1. It stabilizes sickle cell erythrocytes and Increases their osmotic fragility.
  2. Carao causes significant reduction in painful crisis in Sicklers.
  3. Throughout the trial... which we are still on there is no adverse reaction and all our patients of both Sicklers and Anaemia like it....
  4. We give it to most of our patients who need blood transfusion successfully and [they needed]... no blood transfusion, only cure with carao.

Update July 15, 2010: We ended our donations to Dr. Sokoto's hospital at the beginning of 2010 (Specialist Hospital Sokoto).  It may be possible to pursuade Dr. Sokoto to do a study on carao fruit for sickle cell anemia at his hospital.  His email address is attahirus<@>  (Remove the angle brackets from the email address before emailing.  This is a spam prevention measure.)

Autoimmune hemolytic anemia

Hello Lloyd Thought I'd give some feedback over the product I ordered a couple months ago. I've since been back to my doctors for some more blood tests which have now confirmed that the levels are now normal, which is great. I'm not sure that the two smaller bottles were enough during the course I was taking the medicine for and so will probably order some more in order to ensure a comprehensive treatment. It was a couple of weeks ago that I finished the course, daily intake being about 3/4 teaspoons. I am beginning to feel a bit more lethargic at the moment so this is another reason for me wanting to make sure that the autoimmune hemolytic anaemia is fully treated once an for all (unless it turns out to be a permanent dysfunction for me??) I presume I go on to the appropriate page on your website to make a repeat order? Sam, UK 6/2005

Anemia caused by chemotherapy. Hemoglobin 8 to 12.1 (normal) in 10 days.

My husband is undergoing chemo combined with Avastin and Oxlyplatin for colon cancer.  His hemoglobin dropped to 8 and his oncologist wanted to give him a blood transfusion which he refused. After taking Carao for a week and a half his hemoglobin went up to 12.1 and has continued in the 11.1 - 12 range since then. As a result he has experienced a noticable increase in his energy levels. Thank you so much! Sandra FL 8/2005

Terry:  Anemia due to kidney failure, regular blood transfusions finally avoided through the use of carao.  This testimonial has its own page, click HERE

Dear Lloyd, Just to say thanks for the delivery of the second lot of Carao I ordered for my mother. We received it at the beginning of last week. Your deliveries are always prompt and we really appreciate it. We think the Carao is definitely working. It's been 
2 months since my mother's last blood transfusion. She hasn't felt the need to go for a blood test. She doesn't feel weak (or anemic at all), and as I told you last time she has got her appetite back and has put on weight. We hope that Carao will always be available. Just out of curiosity do you think you will ever make it into capsule form? 
All the best and thank you once again, M.B., Australia  9/2005

Hemolytic anemia cured (Costa Rica, translated by Lloyd)

Good afternoon Lloyd, how are you?
I want to tell you that today they gave us Andrés' blood test results.  To our surprise Andrés had hemoglobin almost 12 and the blood platelet level fine.  The doctor said that medically he is in very good health.  I am super-content because I know that it has all been due to your carao product, which is so good.

I'm very glad to have met you, and you don't how grateful I am for the wonderful way you've treated us.

God willing, in a month Andrés has to have more blood tests done.  Evelyn, Costa Rica 12/2005

"Doctor was amazed" - blood cells normalized

I would like to thank you. I am 49 years old and have suffered from low iron stores and in turn this has lowered my haemoglobin. For 6 years now I have been taking iron tablets 
and they have had little effect. My iron stores in August were 5.7 and in 6 weeks went up to 18. My haemoglobin went from 12 to 13 in that period as well. My doctor was amazed and 
had to admit it was carao that had made the difference. before i started taking carao my blood was only making miniscule cells
while after the doctor said my cells had increased in size and were more healthy.  

I am not sure what the maintenance dosage is and would ask for your advice. I have finished the 2 bottles and have ordered more. Many thanks again as I have been seeking help for years and until now no one has been able to help me.

Quick follow-up regarding my 93 year old Mom. 

After taking the syrup for 2 days, her white count was low enough that she didn't need another blood transfusion, only by one point and, the doctors were actually surprised.

It has now been eight days and she doesn't appear to be nodding off several times a day and she is beginning to feel more energetic. Also, her hands and feet don't seem to be as cold as they usually are.
Ruth, Mass. 10/2005

"Lloyd- Thanks so much for your follow-up Email. The addition of the Forum to your web site was a great idea. One of which I'm sure will enhance the site. It is such a bonus to be able to read actual postings from people who are actively using the product." Mark, 10/2005

Leukemia - hemoglobin 9 to 12 in one month

My family and I are very glad to inform you that my sister' hemoglobin is already 9 from 6 in just a month!!!! Her white blood cells count was 5,000 plus before she took the carao, but now it was reduced to 3,000 plus. It is really miracle!! We believe that God really works in mysterious ways.... My sister wants to order another two large bottles of carao from you.... We are now looking for a better doctor or a specialist in spleen enlargement. That is the problem we have now, but we are very thankful that at least we have already solved, thru you help, her problem in low blood. Again, we are very thankful to God that He created a person like you to discover the cure for low blood. Sincerely yours Ludybeth, Philippines 11/2005
(Editor's note: Lloyd does not claim to have discovered carao for anemia.)

Hello Lloyd,

I have been taking the Tropical Wonder for one week now and have had surprisingly good results. Much more energetic and having a strong feeling of well being I have not enjoyed since my youth.  Dale, WI 11/2005

"Recently the doctor found out the reason I have been anemic all my life. Half of the hemoglobin cells did not develop from the time of my birth. I am 88 years old. I cannot take much iron because it constipates me. That has always been a problem. Carao helps a lot. I am doing quite well taking it once a day. Recently I missed a few days and went into a terrible slump. I took it again and regained strength. I am doing exceptionally well right now. Thank God for sending help through Carao. Gail,  Florida"   12/2005
