About 25,000 old and new cancer patients have registered to receive free herbal medicines from Mr Saengchai Haelerttrakul who is better known under the name of Mor (Doctor) Saeng, prompting him and his volunteers to accelerate the production of the medicines for February distribution.
The sudden surge in the number of recipients for the free herbal medicines concocted by Mor Saeng followed tests conducted by the Ministry of Public Health which have proven that the medicines have the quality to treat cancer.
Of the 25,000 people who have registered, many of them have never received the medication from Mor Saeng before. Also, several of them are hopeless cases as they are at the final stage of the disease.
Officials of the Department of Thai Traditional Medicines and Mor Saeng are in the process of discussion about including Mor Saeng's concoction of herbal medicines to treat cancer into the list of traditional medicines.
