Intervene Herbal

Posted 31 May 2018

At Intervene Herbal, the following claim is made:

Intervene Herbal has launched the PREMIUM herbal supplement to ensure that all the essential oils and herbs are taken up into your system to be more efficient in removing diseases.We have used nano technology in our research until we were able to formulate the most effective herbal supplement.

The phrase nano technology is a red flag and suggests closer scrutiny of this product.

The label claims the product is composed of essential oils, various tree, Botanical and Citrus Extracts taken from the finest sources. Blended i a Nano Suspension with pure ionic antioxidant water. Coconut Oil, Chrysanthemum Oil, Cedar Wood Oil, Citronella Oil, Cinnamon Oil, Corn Oil, Geranium Oil, Oregano Oil, Neem Oil, Peppermint Oil, Frankincense Oil, Myrrh Oil, Garlic Extracts.


The website claims:

  • “The Intervene Herbal supplements are the only products that we have developed and proven with clinical trials”. I cannot find any evidence to confirm this.
  • “The substance, using Quantum Angstrom Technology (QAT), takes Herbal supplements right out of the normal format”. This is sheer rubbish and pseudoscience.
  • “Pure ionic antioxidant water”. This is sheer rubbish and pseudoscience.
  • “Proven Herbal Treatment for the following conditions” which includes diabetes, kidney infection, neuralgic pain, tumours, etc. This alerts one to this being highly unlikely and suggests a scam product. Worse, it claims to be a proven herbal treatment for tumours!
  • “SABS Approved”: The SABS do not approve these kinds of products. They will not even assess them. This statement is a complete lie which should warn the user that the other claims could also be lies.
  • The product “is a botanical based solution made of botanical extracts which have properties that are anti-fungal, anti bacterial and anti viral” and “Intervene Herbal supplement is a nutritional supplement which kills bacteria and cleanses the body and blood of toxins. Intervene Herbal cleanses, regulates and rejuvenates you while helping to balance your body and optimize your health.” There is no clinical evidence that this mixture of ingredients can ‘kill bacteria’. The claim ‘cleanses the body and blood toxins’ is a claim of pseudoscience products and is not physiologically likely.

Beware this product. Do not waste your time. Find a credible health professional and get appropriate treatment.

    Hi Harris,

    Curious as to what exactly you base your opinion on? Do you test the products at all?

    • Harris

      1. We examine the evidence that the company supplies to support their product/claims
      2. We evaluate the claims against reputable complementary medicine databases, e.g., Natural Medicines Comprehensive Database (NMCD)
      3. We searched Medline, Embase, PsychInfo, CINAHL, Web of Science, LILACS or AMED and other bibliographic sources e.g, SciFinder (CAPLUS, REGISTRY, CASREACT, CHEMLIST, CHEMCATS) and PubMed (indexed for MEDLINE) for evidence that may support the product and/or ingredients.

      If there is no supporting evidence, then on what basis can the company be making their claims on? Belief? Intuition?

    Hi Harris

    Have you evaluated or spoken to any of the people which are on the website whom have testified to the treatment ?


    • Harris

      I have. What would you regard as good enough evidence to support the claims that can be applicable to all users of the product?

      • Sindiswa


        If you have spoken to any of this people ,what are they saying about the product?

        • Harris

          I have not spoken to a range of people. However, one needs proper evidence and not anecdotal. In other words, if I speak to 5 people who believe the earth is flat, that will not mean that the evidence is that the earth is flat. Similarly, if I speak to 5 people who believe that Intervene works, that will not suggest that it does for confirmation bias, placebo response, regression to the mean, and other mechanisms become possible too.

      Well ssaid Marcel d Perna There is more than rough evidence that would support the fact that Chemo and Radation do not work. Ask a ten year old child if radiation is good for and you’ll get a good reliable and honest answer yet if that same child studies Alophathic medicine he’s duped into believing that it’s okay. Any formulation of organic indigenous herbs into essential oils would be far better than chemically formulated overpriced drugs with side effects as long as my arm!!! You don’t need any more evidence other than to look at health status of the global population and compair it to the state 50 years ago and know without being a rocket scientist that medical cures are barking up the wrong tree and are the biggest scam in modern history. The cure to every disease lies in nature and any party Pershing that for a positive result should be applauded!!
      I’d be comfortable with any natural herbal mixture before any MD’s prescription and would never place my health in the hands of the unscrupulous pharmaceutical industry and the sheeple that support their ideology.
      I have more than enough good reason to believe that “Intervene Herbal” is onto something good.

      • Harris

        This comment is factually incorrect.
        There is no evidence at all that any herbs, singly or in combination, has any benefit or curative functions for people with cancer. On the other hand, there is much evidence that chemotherapy and radiation DO work, but not for everyone and not for every type of cancer. Because they are potent treatment modalities, they also have a high risk of side effects. People with cancer are given the option: use this with x percent you will survive, with a high risk of side effects, or either do nothing or use alternative methods which is certainly a death sentence. This is not in defence of all alopathic treatments, mainstream medicine also has its problems but nothing like that associated with CAMS.

        So, there is overwhelming evidence that many women have survived breast cancer due to chemo and radiation therapy. There is zero for herbs and other complimentary medicines. As Terry says, “without being a rocket scientist” – this is self evident.

        • Suzette Strauss

          What does it mean to you if you say ” chemo Do work”? Only 2.1 percent of people receiving chemo still lives after 5 years and 30% of those get secondary cancers that is worse than the first cancer treated. In Australia survival after 5 years is slightly better..2.6%. Im sorry but this means that it does NOT work.
          So because your opinion (not fact) states something that should isn’t working I should believe it.
          And yeah the SABS has a department called MCC which does test medical and health related products.
          So you already proved yourself relying on opninion rather than facts on two counts.
          Not saying the product works though. I simply do not know.

          • Harris

            You are entitled to your opinion but not your facts. Chemo DOES work, but depends on the type of cancer.
            For example, more women are diagnosed with breast cancer than any other cancer, besides skin cancer.
            The 5-year survival rate tells you what percent of people live at least 5 years after the cancer is found. Percent means how many out of 100.
            Because of chemo, the average 5-year survival rate for women with invasive breast cancer is 90%. The average 10-year survival rate is 83%.
            Without chemo, the average 5-year survival rate for women with invasive breast cancer is close to 0%

    If all those people confirm the use of the product and 50% of those people testify to being cured or even show an improvement in their condition, me that would be good enough evidence. If there is a herbal product out there whereby you can bypass radiation and chemo then we have success in my view

  • Richard

    Before you buy your Intervene Herbal product, make sure this company is legit and not just a scam . It might be a scam.

  • Cobus

    I am very concerned about this product and the claims it makes.
    I am a qualified Natural Health Practitioner – it gets on my nerves when people make unfounded claims because it puts our whole industry (one on which I rely on for my income) in a bad light.

    Quantum something nano something – what is that?
    25 essential oils? yet they are all grown on this particular farm organically even (highly unlikely!) and extracted using organic ethanol? (essential oils require steam distillation to be extracted in most cases).

    I am concerned that more and more people are taking these essential oils internally (this has the potential to be dangerous), it most certainly will affect the microbiome. Quite possibly people are using this product for extended periods of time.

    What of potential drug interactions? No information is available.

    Ask yourself the following questions:
    – Is this product produced in a GMP facility (preferably cGMP) – the answer is no
    – Are there any clinical trials to show this product is effective (or at least not dangerous) – the answer is no
    – Are there any studies (even test tube experiments) to show what (if any) effect this product has – the answer is no
    – Will it interact with medications? – don’t know

    These are some very important questions that anyone (but especially someone with a serious condition like cancer) should be asking about any complimentary treatment they take.

    Thank you Harris for your article, I completely agree with you.

  • Corne

    Hi Cobus
    Please give me more information about your business. I am in desperate search for an alternative to cortisone for my mother. She feels sick if she use it and sick if she doesn’t. Desperately seeking for alternative medicine. I have already made an enquiry but not bought Intervene yet.

    • Harris

      We will not be accepting or posting any comments that promote or sell any products – whether the claims are proven or not. CAMCheck does not facilitate, promote or support any products.

  • Sandra

    Hi Harris

    I have to agree with you, Intervene Herbal might just be a total scam…. But I have had some amazing results with it myself and most of my clients. I do however doubt whether it is what they claim it to be.
    The manufacturer and the company that makes most of the claims are in cahoods. I would so much like to send a sample so a lab to have it tested. The SABS certificate is totally only for testing if there are any pathogens present in the sample and not to state that is in fact what it claims to be.
    I think that it is essential oils in suspension by means of adding a surfactant i.e soap???

    I definitely know that the product works by eliminating the amount of acid in your body. I was diagnosed with cancer 4 years ago and I followed their protocol of drinking the Interval herbal drink and my cancer completely disappeared. I have been on remission ever since. I also recommended this herbal drink to one of my colleagues who had stage 4 cancer of the womb and had spread throughout the body. The hospital said there was no hope for her they can only manage her pain until the last days. She tried intervene and within 2 months her cancer moved to stage 2B and within the next month she was on remission. The Doctors at the treating hospital in joburg were so shocked and they even called some of their professors to come witness what they termed as a miracle.

    I am not saying this will work for everyone and I am not a Doctor but for me it certainly did and I do not hesitate recommending this to anyone. I am living proof. Cancer needs acid to spread in your body by eliminating this acid and push your body to alkaline, your body stops being a breeding ground for cancer cells.

    • Harris

      There is no evidence to support your claims. It is possible that it may have worked for you, mostly, when one takes a product with no effect, but you do improve, these are co-incidents and one needs to be careful to claim cause and effect. For example, flu lasts for a few days and then resolves. Whether you take an antibiotic, sea sand or coloured water at the start will do nothing and when you improve, you have to be careful to not claim it was the coloured water that resulted in you getting better. This is where robust evidence is required.

    • Sindiswa

      Busisiwe you sure you are not being paid to say all of this or you are one of them ,i mean it hard to believe all this.i want to but something doesnt add up.

      • Nthabiseng


        Im skin cancer stage 4 and im taking intervene herbal hopefully i will come back with good results. Have my fingers crossed

    • Sindiswa

      Are you being paid to speak highly of this product or?

  • Ester

    Intervene herbal premium works, for me too I am living a testimony about this products am alive because of this product am a Namibian. Thanks Busisiwe

  • Peet Boshoff

    Is there anyone out there that had good results from Intervene for treating Multiple Myoloma please?

  • Patricia van den Heever

    The book fo Revelations (The Holy Bible, which has stood the test of time and the best seller of books in the world) states in revelations 22v2 as is on the Bottle of Intervene) The leaves of the trees are for the healing of the nation! God said it, I believe it, that settles it! I believe it is appointed to live and a time to die!
    It has worked for many many people! Worth a try!

    • Harris

      Not worth a try if no proof it works, for then wasting your money.
      Would you try a teaspoon of sea sand because some company claims it will help your immune system?

    • Sandra Wellen

      Hi, I have heard of Intervene. Could you tell me who has used it and if the results were positive for pancreatic cancer.

      • Harris

        Sorry to hear about the pancreatic cancer. You will waste your money on this product for this condition, avoid!

        • Sandra Wellen

          Ok, just checking. Its actually my son in law who has the cancer, so option 2 is chemo.. I have always used herbal products. Not looking for cure for him but more to delay or retard cancer cells as he is very young. Any other feedback from people who have used this product please.

  • Peet Boshoff

    Anyone tried Moringa?

    • Sindiswa

      Is moringa clinical proven?

      • Harris

        “Five human studies using powdered whole leaf preparations of M. oleifera have been published, which have demonstrated anti-hyperglycemic (antidiabetic) and anti-dyslipidemic activities. These activities have been confirmed using extracts as well as leaf powders in animal studies.” “Standardization of products is an issue. However, the results of published studies to date involving M. oleifera are very promising. Additional human studies using standardized extracts are highly desirable.”

        “However, there are still too few studies on humans to recommend Moringa leaves as medication in the prevention or treatment of diseases. Therefore, further studies on humans are recommended.”

        • Sindiswa

          Iam seeing alot of positive result people are saying it a miracle tree and some testify being treated cancer by it.

          • Harris

            Highly improbable. Do not waste your resources in an unproven treatment.
            Also, do not replace proven treatment that may work with one without evidence.
            If you do and the cancer gets worse, it may be too late to go back to the proper treatment.
            Speak to your doctor about what you are thinking.

  • nompumi

    hi this is nompumi i just want to find out to those people they taking the herb doest it makes them to sweat and slleepy

    • nsima

      hello @nompumi, did you take the “intervene” product or are you talking about moringa? I want to find someone that says I took it BUT it did not work. Even @ Sandra said “But I have had some amazing results with it myself and most of my clients”. So what are her doubts about? Is there anyone who has taken it for whatever claim that they make and it DID NOT WORK?


    It works intervene herbal I’ve used it its a miracle herbal drink do what works for you

    • Harris

      No, not true at all. Of course a placebo response is always possible, but this product is a scam.

      • JL Grobbelaar

        You’re very quick to attack positive reviews. Are you a doctor in that you are making such biased comments about Intervene Herbal? Or is it just the herbal route in general that you are against? If chemo worked, then why would doctors chop and change chemo drugs on one patient basically shaking their heads not knowing what to do any more? In your opinion, what is the success rate of cancer survivors (meaning they should still be alive and in remission after 5 years) after conventional therapies?

        • Harris

          Yes, I am a medical doctor.
          I have extensively checked for evidence that supports the claims for the product as a whole, and the individual ingredients.
          Chemo does work extremely effectively for some cancers, and not for others. Cancer is not one type of cell type, but different types. So chemo may need to change if one drug does not work and hopefully another does. Like with headache, if panado does not work, you may then try aspirin.
          Success rate for chemo and cancers? In some cases, 100%. In others less so and in some particular cancers, almost zero. Success rate for alternative medicines? Practically almost zero for all cancers.
          For example, for breast cancer – many have survived because of chemo. Zero because of alternative meds. The overall 5-year relative survival rate for breast cancer is 90%.

          In a large study, patients with nonmetastatic breast, lung, or colorectal cancer who chose alternative therapies had substantially worse survival than patients who received conventional cancer treatments. After a median of 5 years, patients with breast or colorectal cancer were nearly five times as likely to die if they had used an alternative therapy

  • JL Grobbelaar

    What are your credentials?

  • PC van den Heever

    YES I believe in INTERVENE!
    It is right from the heart of GOD!
    WHY IS IT THAT many people just believe in CHEMICAL DRUGS??????
    I HAVE BREAST CANCER and use INTERVENE which contain the special gift given to Christ at His Birth by the 3 wise men and OXYGEN!
    Give GOD a try!!!!
