Lola Conchita Encabo from Macalelon Quezon was know for her primitive but effective solution for animal bites especially from snake bites.
The Barangay Captain in her town stated that there is one incident where in Lola Conchita saved the life of a dying resident who was bitten by snake.
`Nakahulalo na para ng patay. Pero nung dalin nga kay Lola Conching at sinipsip yung kamandag ay nabuhay po. Kaya parang nagtaka sila na talagang may kapangyarihan o may bisa yung kanyang pag-gamot.` He said.
The shocking part is that the alleged reason for her impressive healing skills is that she believed to have a snake twin.
She said that when her mom gave birth to her in 1015 a snake was born with her.
`Pag labas daw na ganon meron din daw inunan na kulay puti daw nung lumabas yan na ahas, white snake sya. Ipinatapon daw po yun nung nanay. Ay hindi namn itinapon nung lolo ko at sabi ay algaan nyo swerte yan` She said.
She also said that when she is on the 5th grade she met her mother’s twin, Wanda.
But then after a typhoon hit their area, Wana was washed away into the river.
Until now Lola Conchita still searching for snakes believing that some of them are Wanda’s daughter and son.
