President and CEO
Nutraceutical Medical Food Manufacturer

Thomas Waid is President and CEO Deca Aloe Arborescens US (Deca Aloe) of Dallas, Texas. A lifelong advocate of health, fitness and anti-aging lifestyle, in his research he found a rare phyto-therapeutic Brazilian recipe published in two books by Franciscan Priest Father Romano Zago of Brazil for boosting the body’s own innate immune system and gentle whole-body detoxification.

Extensive scientific research of the two key ingredients of the formula, whole leaf Aloe arborescens juice and raw honey substantiates how the recipe is beneficial to people suffering from over one hundred different chronic health conditions, including cancer, diabetes, and obesity.

As an entrepreneur he met with Father Romano Zago (OFM), Brazilian scholar, aloe researcher, author and a European manufacture of the formula. In 2007, Deca Aloe Arborescens US began manufacturing and distributing it commercially in North America as a nutraceutical/medical food for the dietary management of a compromised immune system function.

He sponsored the editing and publishing in North America the two books on the formula by Father Zago entitled “Cancer Can Be Cured!” and “Aloe Isn’t Medicine and Yet . . . It Cures!”

These books explain how this simple, all-natural, inexpensive Brazilian recipe helps the body’s own innate immune system to combat degenerative diseases and enhance other orthodox conventional therapeutic modalities.

The Aloe arborescens and honey-based formula has been clinically tested as an adjunctive therapy in a human study of 240 test subjects with metastatic cancer by Dr. Paolo Lissoni, world renowned research oncologist at St. Gerado Hospital, Milan, Italy.

For the past twelve years Tom has collaborated with leading scientific research authorities like Ivan E. Danhof, Ph.D. M.D. and Dr. Reginal McDaniel, M.D. in promoting the educational scientific research on the immunomodulatory and protective action of the botanical Aloe arborescens and raw unpasteurized honey.

Deca Aloe has copyrighted the formula and published a research monograph for doctors and healthcare professionals on organic aloe and natural raw honey as nutraceutical/medical foods.

Tom holds a Bachelor of Business Administration (B.B.A.) with a major in Marketing and minor in Finance from West Virginia University.

Father Romano Zago


OFM (Order of the Friars Minor)

Father Romano Zago, OFM, was born in Lajeado (RS) Brazil on August 11, 1932. He was ordained a Franciscan Friar in 1958 after having studied philosophy and theology.

In 1971, he received a degree in literature and foreign languages (Latin, Portuguese, French and Spanish) from the faculty of literature at Pontifical Catholic University of Rio Grande do Sul. He is a scholar who speaks five languages and has written books on the Catholic Priesthood in South America.

He has researched and published scientific studies in books on the healing properties found in the botanicals of Aloe arborescens and Aloe vera that stimulate the body’s own innate immune defense system to heal itself from disease through nutrition.

In 1988, while presiding at the San Antonio parish in Pouso Novo (RS) Brazil, he learned from local natives about a potent all-natural Aloe arborescens recipe they used to promote health when chronically ill. He began to recommend it to the chronically ill people he came to know and pastor. It was here he first observed the positive results obtained with phyto-nutrition against advanced disease states.

Afterwards, he was sent to Jerusalem and Italy, where he continued to see great success in the nutritional benefit to the chronically ill when he recommended they try this recipe made with the whole leaf of the native Aloe arborescens plant that grows in the region.

This inspired him to devote his life to research and education on the Aloe arborescens botanical and the Brazilian recipe that has been published in the two books he has written “Cancer Can Be Cured!” and “Aloe Is Not Medicine and Yet . . . It Cures!”

At the request of many people and organizations, he has given lectures and conferences in Portugal, Spain, Switzerland, France, Italy and Brazil about the ability of the human body to heal and regulate itself when supplied with the cell-required concentrated micronutrients found in the polysaccharides (complex sugar molecules) of this aloe plant species and the recipe.

He is featured in numerous YouTube videos performing live presentations to audiences or having discussions with scientist and reporters, where he describes the science behind the Brazilian aloe and honey health formula and tells many success stories of how its users achieved healing.

Father Zago explains how scientific research has shown the abundant supply of pharmacological properties and herbal therapeutic and medicinal properties of Aloe arborescens provides supreme immune system support so the cells and organs of the body can regain their normal functioning.

He also speaks and writes about the other components found in the plant including antraquinones (laxative, antiviral), chromones (ulcer protection), terpenoids (antisecretory, anti-inflammatory), minerals (calcium, magnesium, and more) that may offer protective and potentially preventive or curative activities for the benefit of mankind.

He collaborated with world renowned research oncologist Dr. Paolo Lissoni at the St. Gerardo Hospital in Milan, Italy Division of Oncology, along with six other top scientist to use the formula in a clinical research study with 240 patients with metastatic solid tumor who were randomized to receive chemotherapy with or without the aloe/honey formula.

Half of them were given this remarkable recipe and the outcome was very beneficial. The results verified the recipe inhibits the proliferation of errant foreign cells . . . exhibits immune-stimulating and antioxidant effects . . . enhances survival time . . . and reduces toxicities, as proven by radiological evaluations (PMID: 19368145).
