  1. As a sign of gratitude for how my husband was saved from cervical dystonia/spasmodic torticollis, i decided to reach out to those still suffering from this.
    My husband was diagnosed of cervical dystonia/spasmodic torticollis in 2013 and it was really tough and heartbreaking for me because he was my all and the symptoms were terrible, he always have Joint pain , and he always complain of Weakness of the body . we tried various therapies prescribed by our neurologist but none could cure him. I searched for a cure and i saw a testimony by someone who was cured and so many other with similar body problem, and he left the contact of the doctor who had the cure to cervical dystonia/spasmodic torticollis . I never imagined cervical dystonia/spasmodic torticollis has a natural cure not until i contacted him and he assured me my husband will be fine. I got the herbal medication he recommended and my husband used it and in one months he was fully okay even up till this moment he is so full of life. cervical dystonia/spasmodic torticollis has a cure and it is a herbal cure contact the doctor for more info on drwilliams098675@gmail.com on how to get the medication. Thanks for reading my testimony.
