Kertai Bayaliyev (born in 1929) was a forester in the Sayramsu branch of the Aksu-Zhabagly reserve for 46 years. Over the years, he has planted about 1 million trees
But not a single tree had a sign with the words “The tree I planted” …
A true nature lover
In Kenesaryk village of Tolebi district there is a special aksakal named Kertai Bayaliyev. Today, at the age of 92, she makes herbal remedies for the sick. Kertay Ata is well-known not only in the district, but also in other places.
He had taken a stone from my mother-in-law’s request
My sister-in-law Batyrkhan, who worked in one of the departments of the regional akimat, was very ill five or six years ago with a gallstone. The stone was then “attacked” and taken to the city’s №2 ambulance hospital. Then he was cured. He was told that he needed an operation, but he did not. Because Kertai heard about aksakal from a friend named Bakhyt, who lives in Kenesaryk village, and risked appearing to him. Then he went to the old man, took an herbal tincture from him and got rid of the gallstones. That is, the doctors themselves were surprised to see that after some time, after an ultrasound examination, there were no stones in his gallbladder. Later I heard that Batyrkhan used to take some of Kereken’s herbs to his friends. So I was deeply grateful to this elder, who is over 90 years of age and has shown compassion to others.
Recently I had a chance to talk to this grandfather Kertai. I talked to the elder for a long time, and I felt that I had succeeded. Then I decided to write in the newspaper what I had heard from him so that people would know.
The cost of herbal tincture is 2000 tenge
Kertai Ata told us that he learned the methods of treatment with mountain herbs from his grandmother Toksulu. (Toksulu-apa lived for 98 years and died in 1958). Then he showed how to store the herbs he made. He makes a tincture of mountain herbs for everyone who comes to his house, pours it into glass jars and explains how and when to take it. The cost of herbal tincture is only 2000 tenge.
“Each of them will have its own method of collection, its own season. These herbs are collected during flowering, then dried, cut, packed in bags and put in separate cellophane bags. I will write down their names and which ones will cure what diseases, ”said Kertai-ata, carefully pointing out each bag of mountain herbs in his pharmacy.
Kertay Ata is not the only one who collects herbs, but his daughters-in-law and grandchildren. In other words, he explains the secrets of nature to the next generation. They also have the opportunity to get sick or to take herbal medicine on their own. Isn’t that wonderful ?!
“Dad, tell me what kind of disease these herbs can cure. Let’s find out, ”I told the elder. “Each of them has its own healing properties,” he said. – There are cures for people with high blood pressure, low blood pressure, anemia, gastrointestinal disorders. There are even treatments for small intestine, colon, peptic ulcer and diabetes. I make my own medicine for people with kidney and liver diseases, kidney failure, swollen liver, kidney, liver, gallbladder and bladder stones. My medications are different for people with rheumatism, limbs, and problems with the heart, ears, limbs, and joints. There are herbs that help the broken bone to heal faster. People with frequent headaches, sore throats and sinusitis also come to ask for medicine. I also recommend appropriate medicine for those who have a runny nose (worms in the nose).
People also come from other regions
Judging by the list of such diseases, Kertai Ata has a large number of patients. When I asked this question, he said calmly: “Five or six people come a day and take a sludge from the grass.”
If a 100-year-old person receives five or six visits a day and receives the necessary treatment, it is not a low figure. “Most of the villagers, people from the surrounding area, probably come?” – I asked my grandfather the next question. I was even surprised by his answer. “They come from Shymkent, Taraz, Kyzylorda, Atyrau, Aktau, Almaty, Astana, Pavlodar, Ust-Kamenogorsk and Uralsk,” Kertai said. Then, out of disbelief, he took a large magazine from the top of his pillow in bed and held it in his hand, saying, “You can read this.”
The entries in the grandfather’s magazine were received in 2013. The names of the people, where they came from, what diseases they took herbal medicine – everything is listed. Not less than 1000, not less.
“Some healers dedicate a book of thanks, and those who are treated write a thank-you note. Do you have a magazine like that? ” – I told my grandfather. “It was unthinkable to create such a magazine. Those who say thank you will call me, ”he said, surprising me again. The elder is free to use his cell phone. Even though he is old, he speaks brightly, cheerfully, jokingly, does not ask the same questions over and over again, and hears well. He reads newspapers and magazines without glasses.
He is also engaged in beekeeping
I wanted to talk to this special old man. According to him, doctors from Shymkent, Almaty, Astana and other cities visit him to get herbal tinctures.
“Now, who are you teaching this art to your children?” Is anyone following you? ” – I asked the elder. “I taught all my sons, everyone knows,” he said. Then his younger brother Serik, who lives with him, said that he was teaching his wife Zhanar more.
Zhanar’s daughter-in-law is a native of Tulkubas. His grandfather used to make an herbal infusion for patients who came when he was not at home, depending on the type of disease.
While saying goodbye to the old man, I saw about 30 beehives in the yard. It turns out that he has been engaged in beekeeping for many years. I was also surprised. But there was not enough time to talk about it. So I decided that what I really needed to do was learn how to do it right.
… In general, Kertai Ata has been involved in labor from an early age, working in various farms. He worked in forestry, from 1962 to 1999 he worked as a guard in the mountains, in the cordons “Korgantas”, “Sayramsu”, “Sazan Ata”. He and his wife, 10 years younger than him, gave birth to 5 sons and 5 daughters. Today, 40 grandchildren and 20 great-grandchildren are the beloved grandparents of this generation.
