Natém purifies the blood,it is very good medicine for the brain,it is used to treat and cure cancer and other heavy diseases.
It is possible to heal multiple sclerosis, schizophrenia; many so-called incurable diseases can be cured with Natém and the help of an experienced and fully trained shaman.
This plant is an excellent teacher about the impact of unsuitable patterns of thinking or ways of living that do not benefit to the person and therefore works amazingly on drug addiction or the abuse of alcohol. It can also be used to cure physical or spiritual disorders and helps to develope a real love for life, for oneself and the environment.
Depression is not difficult to heal with this medicine! The true reason for family problems or difficulties in relationships can be discovered easily and in this way left behind.
