    Dear Jafar Bhai,
    In the current world of highly commercialised medical care espeically in Mangalore, your novel idea of treating the mankind with natural care with service as your motto is highly commendable. I wish you and Dr. Mohammad Rafiq success in this venture.

    When my friend visitied me
    after spending one month in
    Arunachal Pradesh, he told me
    about the healthy people of that
    region. They are healthy with
    longevity. They don't have the
    modern medical care with a heavy
    dose of drugs, they eat natural
    and fresh food, happy and carefree
    life, exercise and fresh air...and hardly any of the
    modern diseases are found there.

    Our body has great natural healing
    power, if we let it happen.

    All the good wishes for the novel venture through "Natural
    Healthcare " healing ministry.
