Suri started the e-Therapy at our centre from Sunday 28 August 2011 – everyday (inclusive of the Raya Hari and Independence Day holidays.) The only thing I can say is, It is most rewarding to see how she benefited from what we do here. It is fun to joke with her and see her infectious smile! An inspiring experience indeed!
Happy Hour at CA Care
- When she is not in pain, she is happy. She would tell stories and sing.
- She is able to react to the environment and respond to our questions, etc.
- Before the e-Therapy, she was feeling “cold” and could not take to the air-con in the room. After a few days, she was fine – no need thick clothings or a cap to cover her head.
- Everyday her strength seemed to increase!
- Each morning her husband shared with us Suri’s dream. One night she dreamt of eating a certain kind of fruit – she couldn’t remember the name. Suri made her sister name all the fruits. At last one name came up, “duku” and yes, that was the fruit that she ate! One night she dreamt of a person wanting to sell her a Mercedes Benz. She did not get to buy the car because her husband woke her up. Then the next night she dreamt of buying an expensive diamond ring.
The following is an interview with her husband on 5 September 2011 – after undergoing 8 cycles of the e-Therapy.
You came to see us on Sunday 28 August 2011. You had to pay over a thousand US dollars for each ticket. And there are three of you. That’s a lot of money. Why did you want to spend that kind of money when at ordinary time it cost only about US$150 to fly return?
Husband: This is because my wife is very important to me. She was in a lot of pain and I didn’t know what to do to help her. So I have to fly in immediately to see you.
As I told you that night, I cannot guarantee good results but I would do my best to help her. But deep inside me, I felt that I could “win”.
H: Yes, we agreed that we would try.
On Sunday night (28 August 2011) we started the e-Therapy. This is Monday 5 September 2010. That means she had undergone 8 cycles of the therapy. Do you see any difference in her?
H: Wah, tremendous improvements. This morning is the best results I have seen. This morning she can shake her feet. This was what she used to do when she was healthy but since she had cancer she could not do that anymore.
So you really “see” improvements?
H: A lot of improvements. I have not seen such great improvements. You see, just now she could stand up by herself – something that she could not do before.
So are you satisfied with the results?
H: Extremely satisfied – very, very satisfied.
When you first came last Sunday, she had a few problems. What were these problems?
H: First, she had severe pains in her head. She is a person who can tolerate pain. And yet I could “see” that she was suffering due to this pain. It is so extraordinarily painful.
Is the pain less now?
H: No more pain – totally gone.
With regards to her movements – when you first came here, could she walk?
H: Wah, when we came last Saturday, we had to use the wheel chair. When we got to the door of the airplane, she switched to a narrowed wheel chair to go through the aisle.
What happen now?
H: Now, she can walk!
So, are you certain that she has improved?
Yes, now she can take the herbs five times a day without any problem or protest.
What about her mental response? Can she respond to what you say to her?
H: Yes, if she sits quietly, she begins to remember many things.
Before this, can she respond to your questions?
H: Depends. Yesterday she was very, very angry with her sister. She was not allowed to eat “wan tan mee.” So she refused to talk to her and would not answer her. But during ordinary time, she can tell stories, sing and reply to our questions.
Is she aware and sensitive to her surrounding now?
H: Yes. (Note: the first few days at our centre she could not stand the cool air-conditioning of the room. She had to wear a sweater and a cap to cover her head. After a few days she did need these anymore).
Are you happy and satisfied having to go through all the trouble to come here?
H: Extremely satisfied. Let me honestly tell you this. When the Singapore oncologist “surrendered” and would not give her more chemo, I told all my children – “We shall go for herbs and hope that she would not suffer any pain. If she has to die, let her go in peace without any pain”. Pain is terrible. But after two months on your herbs, she started to recover – extraordinary healing indeed. It is a miracle (mujizat). It is Godsend. I did not expect this at all. I have suffered for two and a half years when she was undergoing her medical treatments. Come 9 September 2011 (4 days more!) she would have been on your herbs for four months.
Very good (sigh) I am real happy to be able to see her getting better every day.
H: I am extremely happy.

Hello Prof. Chris,
This morning Suryana Tukiman call me and we had a talk. Now his wife has already started to take our herbs again. According him the Neurosurgeon was surprised to see the MRI result of the Brain … full with white marks but she is still alive and healthy after 1,5 years suffering cancer. The paralysis is due to the tumor pressing onto the motor nerve.
Now they use the NGT for food, juice and herbs into her stomach. But as you can see on the photo … she looks healthy, only a little bit skinny. These photos were taken this morning after Tukiman finished talking with me. I asked him to take these photos so I can send it to you. Teddy.
