  • I think, if Tax revenue increased, then health and education facilities must be free to all.
    With compare to Private Labs, these revised rates are very economical but authenticity matters !

  • I was HBV (hepatitis B virus) carrier by birth, I even took Sebivo for 3 years when the stage became acute. I stopped taking the medicine because of the rust of my skin. This year virus is back again at the highest state. So far now I just safeguard my liver by taking honey, and HP Pro. By having enough rest, doing light exercise and avoid alcohol to boost body immunity. April My parents purchased six bottles of HBV herbal formula from (BHHC) BEST HEALTH HERBAL CENTRE for the whole family. I used 2 bottles for 6 weeks just like my parents, now we are completely free from Hepatitis B virus. My family is now enjoying the benefit of healthy life.
