The prosecutor in Alberta, said that the family called an ambulance only when the baby stopped breathing, and that since then they gave to the “natural supplements”, lying next to him and hugged him.
Colette Stefan (35) at the hearing said that their friend told them that a boy has meningitis (inflammation of the meninges), but that they tried to raise his immunity by feeding him with olive extract, whey, maple syrup and the juice from the berries.
Boy who after two weekly illness almost froze, they fed a mixture of apple cider vinegar, hot peppers, onions, garlic, ginger and horseradish root.
“They brought the child to the hospital when he had stopped breathing. However, although the doctors five days trying to recover the boy, finally decided to exclude it from the device, because it could not be helped, “the indictment alleges.
