In 2011 John Willmott was diagnosed with Stage 3B bowel cancer. He was given a terrible prognosis and the conventional treatment that was proposed indicated he would have at best a 40% chance of survival but with much lasting damage from the aggressive therapies suggested by his oncologist.
His wife Rafia Willmott was adamant that there must be another way. She knew from her experience and history of using spices for healing various different ailments that there had to be a more effective solution on offer, somewhere in Nature. She also knew that the conventional treatment proposed by their oncologist would turn John into half the man that he was and she was not going to allow that come hell or high water.
