Comment from: Irene, 75 or over Female Published: September 09

I am now 88 years old, but I had an experience when I was about 8 years old when the doctor diagnosed me with diphtheria. He said he would try a new theory on treating me...and it was with shots of horse urine. Well, it worked, because I have had a long, happy, and healthy life, thanks to that doctor and God.
