Interview Aug. 7, 2003

Lloyd: You told me you used carao extract for anemia in yourself and in 2 of your children, at different times.  Would you give me some details?

Marielos: Well, my oldest son had a very serious case of anemia, hemoglobin 8. I started to give him carao extract, and soon afterwards he was over the anemia, with hemoglobin at 13.

Lloyd:  Do you remember how long it took for him to recover?

Marielos: I would say it was about a month.  read more »

Interview on June 30, 2003

Gricelda: My son Edwin  [Photo top] had mild anemia last year when he was 8.  The doctors recommended iron, but I didn't want to give him iron because it stains the teeth, and no child likes the flavor.  So I decided to use carao extract.  It is customary to take carao in milk, but in this case I gave it to him pure, so that he would receive the full benefit.  With a bottle and a half I got rid of his anemia.  [Lloyd's note: This was 50% dilute extract, equivalent to one 240 ml bottle]  read more »

How a 4-year-old Girl Helped Bring Carao Fruit to the World

Keisy Meléndez was born with anemia, from an anemic mother.  By age 3 her anemia had stunted her growth and mental development so much that she looked - and behaved - like a 16-month-old.  Keisy slept almost constantly and could not walk.  read more »
