Cancer patients take a dose of naturopathy in Kurdistan

By Rudaw 15/4/2019

SULAIMANI, Kurdistan Region — Fereh is from Sanandij in Rojhelat (Iranian Kurdistan). She’s been hiking for 26 years, and now she is a naturopathist at the Hiwa Cancer Hospital in Sulaimani in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq.


Now, she is introducing her cancer patients to this activity.

"Instead of using the chemicals, we treat them with oxygen. The cancer cells are weak. We add extra oxygen to the blood. This will kill the cancer cells," she told Rudaw.

A group arranges a hiking excursion every month. Eleven people in one cohort have cancer. They’ve been fighting cancer for two years.

"I had chemical injections. Later, I came to do exercises. By doing this the chemicals gradually are reducing. I go hiking 3 days per week. Thank God, I am good now," said hiker Shuaiba Hussein.

Muradi says the activity has spread from Rojhelat to the Kurdistan Region of Iraq.

The hiking group includes Kurds, Arabs, Persians, and Turks.
