Should Yamoa be taken at any particular
time of day?
The guide is twice a day, at a decent interval of a good
6 hours - it does not have to be specifically at mealtimes, although people usually
find it easier to remember to take the dose each day at these fixed times.
How many packs are required for a course
The research shows that the optimum result is usually achieved
with a two month cause of treatment [research].
Do sufferers need to repeat the treatment
It has been a long term solution for many people and the second
pack ordered is often passed to a relative or friend. That said, some people may
require follow-up treatment the next month or the following year. Others tend
to buy again for themselves in order to have the powder to hand 'just in case'.
It is a very subjective remedy and we cannot categorically say that you will only
need the one or two packs but this does tend to be the norm.
I am now quite elderly and have had asthma for many years. Will Yamoa still
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 month of Yamoa before gaining substantial benefits. This may relate to the
fact that the condition is long-standing and that an older person has a longer
history of illness and stress combined with a reduced immune system capacity,
making it harder to recover from a condition as quickly as a young person. 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.
Should I start the treatment before
the hay fever seasons starts?
Hay fever sufferers have been known to take
Yamoa Powder in the winter and it has remained effective for the following hay
fever season. Others have found relief from their symptoms for good after taking
it for one month at the beginning of the season. Others take it at the beginning
of the season each year to ensure they are protected. Many sufferers, who take
it whilst they are experiencing symptoms, find some relief within a week of starting
the course of treatment.

I should like to mention that the medicine is wonderful

I have to say that
my symptoms are much improved
only using my salbutamol inhaler infrequently
known side effects?
There have been isolated reports of a reaction of
a rash, water-retention, a tickly cough, stomach ache and one case when taking
blood pressure tablets of palpitations [more information]. Some people may respond
initially to Yamoa with what is termed a 'detox reaction' (sometimes known as
a healing 'crisis'). 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. 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 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. If you find you are experiencing any adverse symptoms from taking Yamoa,
please let us know [see Safety
section for contact procedure].
react adversely with other medicines?
We have had feedback from one lady
regarding a possible interaction between Yamoa Powder and her daily dose of 0.5mg
of Norvasc (blood pressure drug), 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 Powder whilst
on your current medications. If you experience any signs that an adverse reaction
is happening 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
[see Safety section for contact
safe and has it been tested?
It has 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". In UK, imported batches of
Yamoa are routinely analysed microbiologically to clinically confirm that it is
free from nasties such as Salmonella and E-Coli, Faecal Coliforms and Faecal streptococci.
All tests to date have demonstrated the absence of pathogenic bacteria on any
of the samples examined. Jerry Yamoa commissions the tests as some people prefer
to see the proof and as part of good manufacturing practice.

powder: Which is better?
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. 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. Powder: The loose powder is better for administering
to children, and when mixed with a local honey, for those suffering from seasonal
allergies or hay fever as the honey itself will 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 contain
the magnesium stearate found in the capsules.
We recommend a combi
pack, so you can not only test the best way for you but you also have Yamoa conveniently
at home in the morning but also as capsules for when you are away from home.
Do you know
what the active ingredient is?
No. We do not know, and to find out will
be a very costly undertaking. These kinds of tests require the finances and resources
of very large research organisations or multinational pharmaceutical companies.
However one such institution is now conducting research in this area. In effect,
tests are being undertaken to identify the ingredients of the bark, so that in
future there may be a possibility of identifying the active constituent. Clinical
trials of the powder are also due to be undertaken this year.
I am on a
colon cleanse. Should I finish the cleanse before I start Yamoa? Yes,
you should wait in case the Yamoa is evacuated from the body before it has a chance
to work. Your digestive system should also be given a few days to recover and
rest from the cleanse before Yamoa is taken. It would be ideal to wait for about
four days to a week after the cleanse is over before starting Yamoa.
I was sceptical because it had not been recommended by my
GP. After several months
I was amazed at the results, the change in my daughter
was unbelievable Pat|
Within a week, I noticed an improvement in my
asthma M. A. McClellan
I cough very little now and it seems I get
better almost every day. J. F. Hardie
If pregnant, should I take Yamoa?
We recommend that
you wait until you have had your baby and finished breastfeeding before you start
to take Yamoa.
Am I guaranteed
a benefit from Yamoa ?
What would you say if I got none? We are very sorry
to hear when someone has not responded at all to Yamoa Powder as it is so rare
that no improvement at all is experienced. We cannot give a guarantee that it
will work for everyone with every respiratory condition, but it does help many,
many people. If this happens to you, we would be grateful if you could contact
us and elaborate on your 'story' regarding the history of your condition, the
method in which you took Yamoa Powder, your age and how long you have had the
condition, any underlying health issues you may also have, what other medications
you were taking at the time, and any other relevant information, as it would really
help us to understand who Yamoa Powder possibly can and may not help in greater
depth. This in turn will help us to advise our customers more accurately. It is
so important that we hear any negative stories as well as the positive [contact
