Hello there! I'm Indonesian who live outside Indonesia. This few weeks, I read the news about "Dukun Ponari" which can cure the diseases and illness with a magical stone. Many people come to his house in Jombang, East Java. Ponari is a little child may be 10 years old or older but he found this magical stone and suddenly he became famous. The patients gather in his house and make him have less rest. May be he was so tired so that he must go to the hospital to have some rest (he still go to hospital then :P). I do not believe in such kind of stone or whatever, I still believe in doctors in the hospital. I do not know whether it is joke or not, in Jombang there is a soft drink "Ponari Sweat". Any one have any ideas about it?

I'm not sure about 'Ponari Sweet', but people did go crazy with this boy. Now, even a lot more people claimed to get some 'sorcerers' stone' and try to cure people. I've seen a program which investigate what really inside the water from Ponari. And, they found nothing special in the water. I hope Indonesian people stop believing in supertitionn.

Several days ago, I received many emails from my friends regarding that "soft drink" with the picture attached. At first I saw the picture, I can tell that it is just joke. Probably someone edited one of famous soft drink brand to that name. Regarding the case, I want to comment that that's realiy in Indonesia. Believe it or not, it happens.

Its goverment fault because they didnt manage good education for the people, so they still believe such an irrational thing like that. BTW, Im indoensian too and i live in Bandung. Please add me as your friend.

I think the people do not have much choice. You know, good medical treatment is still expensive for them. No wonder they want to have short cuts. I add you, please accept it.

Yeah, but come on, they drink some kid sweat. Any doctor will say that is unhealthy and will not cure any disease. Maybe the government there should decrease the cost of medical treatment so the people will not use such a desperate way to cure their disease.

Ponari can cure diseases with the magic stone that is not correct. as something that made it. In Indonesia, things like this quickly once trusted. I also do not know the truth, whether or not to be healed? I see on television even have a water bath Ponari to cure the disease. Just imagine the water is dirty water, which may cure the disease. I am sad with the fact that the Indonesian people believe in things more magical cure for the disease. Maybe because they do not have any costs for treatment. They explore how the treatment cheap.

Hi again dik_an, You mean his sweat? gross.. LOL This is really hilarious.. I don't think i want one, i mean mine it's already smeel good This phenomenon Is really huge actually, Seeing reaction of masses people believe in this rock owns by Ponari. May be,.. this rock is actually have some kind of healing energy (have magnet energy too), but for long term of theraphy and how long this rock will stay under water that being use for the healing. I understand that many people need alternative solution for their sick. But cronic diseases can't cure at once. Happy posting always, oxox'dian from Bali island. Ps ; About this 'Ponari Sweat';comercial healing? i don't think so.
