Father Romano Zago, OFM, was born in Lajeado (RS), Brazil on August 11, 1932. He was ordained a Franciscan friar in 1958 after having studied philosophy and theology. In 1971, he received a degree in literature and foreign languages (Latin, Portuguese, French, and Spanish) from the faculty of literature at Pontifical Catholic University of Rio Grande do Sul.
In 1988, while presiding at the San Antonio parish in Pouso Novo (RS), Brazil, he learned from local natives about a potent all-natural Aloe arborescens recipe they used to promote health when chronically ill. He began to recommend it to the chronically ill people he came to know and pastor. It was here he first observed the positive results obtained with phytonutrition against advanced disease states. Afterwards, he was sent to Jerusalem and Italy, where he continued to see great success in the nutritional benefit to the chronically ill when he recommended they try this recipe made with the whole leaf of the native Aloe arborescens plant that grows in the region. This inspired him to devote his life to research and education on the Aloe Arborescens botanical and the Brazilian recipe that has been published in the two books he has written, Cancer Can Be Cured and Aloe Is Not Medicine and Yet . . . It Cures
At the request of many people and organizations, he has given lectures and conferences in Portugal, Spain, Switzerland, France, Italy, and Brazil about the ability of the human body to heal and regulate itself when supplied with the cell-required concentrated micronutrients found in the polysaccharides (complex sugar molecules) of this Aloe plant species and the recipe.
Father Zago explains how Phytotherapy Research has shown the abundant supply of herbal therapeutic and medicinal properties of Aloe arborescens provides supreme immune system support so the cells and organs of the body can regain their normal functioning.
