Joost reveals he is healthy in new magazine interview

2013-09-06 11:02
Cape Town - Just months after having accepted the inevitability of his death, Joost van der Westhuizen is fighting back.

He had thought that the motor neuron disease (MND) ravaging his 42-year-old body would be the death of him. But now he's adamant that treatment from a new detox specialist is reversing the damage done by MND – even though a neurologist isn't so sure.

Joost talks exclusively to YOU magazine about the treatment that may heal him, keeping his children positive, and reveals all about his relationship with estranged wife Amor, which is blossoming once more.

However, he has told YOU magazine that recent reports of him and Amor living together are untrue.

    Really?

      Yes really. That's the first step in beating an illness, stay positive. Joost I hope you live to be a 100!

    Well good luck my good man.

  • AbrieGous - 2013-09-06 11:31

    I'm glad for him. Now he can also sell a couple more huisgenoot and rapport interviews. Will be curious to know how much he and Amor have made from front pages.

    I really for this to be true, it would be so wonderful for his kids to have their dad back

    Sympathy seeker. Attention seeker.

  • Elaine Van Jaarsveld - 2013-09-06 15:14

    the last picture was probably air brushed try not to be such insensitive ass******

  • Merlissa Bruce - 2013-09-06 20:53

    They just want attention.

  • Jo Davies - 2013-09-07 11:07

    News24 published an article saying that Joost was moving back in with Amor. In said article News24 quotes Amor. Did they at anytime consider verifying the story, or are they so desperate to beat the next guy in announcing whatever Joe Soap makes up? Situations like this coupled with bad journalist work is fast becoming your downfall

    You have to keep believing.......

    I have suffered from chronic asthma all my life and has had little to no joy in going to gp's and pulmonologist's, pharmaceutical companies do research how to undermine the symptoms, rather than try and find a cure, every couple of years a doc will tell you that you must try a new medication and that your old medication that was a miracle treatment three years ago is actually junk, they will say the same about your current medicine in three years. I am sure that he will find much better treatment going to a homeopath, or naturopath than going to a conventional doctor, just hope he hasn't left it too late. Sad to see the guy who won the world cup for us in such a sad state. He gave us the mental advantage to take Lomu down from the front.

    Good book opportunity... From zero to hero. Disgusted that this even reached media24. Makes one wonder. Was he even sick?

  • Marcus Pearson - 2013-09-07 20:00

    Lots of money hey.... Love your limelight.

  • Heiron Joseph Nel - 2013-09-07 20:56

    A friend of his today gave different story, You story a lie.

    Wonder hoe sal julle 'trash talkers' voel wanneer iemand langs julle sterfbed kom staan en se jy soek aandag. Wees versigtig om te tart en terg, als kom terug hoor, logies. Het julle Joost se interview gekyk op DTV? Na ek daardie interview gesien het, ek het in die oe gekyk van 'n gebreekte man wie lewe vir sy kinders, wie dankbaar is, sterk is. Wie van julle, wie van ons sou opgestaan het, 'n organisasie gestig het? Julle kan almal gaan bars!!! Ek wil dam sien hoe staan jy op na jy getrip en geval het toe die dr jo die nuus gee...ek wil dam sien wie so sterk soos Joost is.

    What an awesome cover pic of Joost. I wish him a great recovery and may he go on to be an inspiration to many

  • Charles Komane - 2013-09-09 16:36

    Positive mindset turns to wonders, lets believe especially in bad times.

  • Jacob Maermerrie - 2013-09-11 08:19

    This nonsense makes me think of the " cured " Ruben Kruger after his " healing " by a Nigerian faith-healer___he died a couple of months later,,,, Unfortunately, not a single day will be added to Joost's life by prayer, eating worms, not eating worms, etc___such conditions can be managed and quality of life will maybe improve but it is indeed a death sentence___rather simply support the man with understanding and friendship ___dying can be a very " lonely " experience.

    Wow look at what a month on carrot juice did to Joost! I have read other testimonials of people who detoxed using carrot juice or green juices, its not unheard of to come back from really serious ailments with Nature Cures. I myself was cured of horrible palmar pustular psoriasis by just eating grapes and nothing else for a month. Healed forever.

    What's most unbelievable is that people would spend R19 on a You magazine.
