"My cousin suffers from placenta praevia"
My 31 year old cousin is a teacher and she got married last year. Now she is five months pregnant but she suffers from placenta praevia and it bleeds. Until now she has been hospitalized for four times. She also has Rh (-) and the lytic mixture is her daily nourishment, but because of so many injections, she has no area left to continue their administration. She is in total rest (she never goes out). Could somebody please help me with another treatment besides those with: NoSpa (dotraverine), Scobutil (butylscopolamminii bromidum-produced by Antibiotics-Iasi), Alilestrenol (allylestrenolum-produced by Terapia S.A.)? Hoping that you will help my cousin who desperately wants this child allow me to thank you very much in advance!

"My father suffers from thorax pains"
My 70 year old father, who underwent a prostate surgery 5 years ago, was diagnosed with adeno-carcinoma and all this time he underwent the treatment with Clanisen (chlorotrianisenum-produced by Sindan), but 2 months ago the doctors changed his treatment with Flucinom (flutamidum - produced by Schering-Plough), because the pharmacies do not sell compensated Clanisen anymore. He felt very well for about a month but then he began to have some terrible thorax pains, which move from one part of the body to another (they started with a twinge in his back). He was hospitalized at the "Schuller" Hospital in Ploiesti where he ran some basic tests (blood, lungs, and digestive system) then he was discharged from hospital and the doctors wrote on his discharge file "osseous metastasis under observation". He did not run any kind of special tests for the diagnosis to be determined, but, due to the doctors" vast experience, the diagnosis mentioned in the discharge file must have been very clear to them, although I hope they were wrong. I read on the Internet that Flucinom may cause osseous metastasis, but in my father"s case it caused pains after only one month. Please help me with a piece of advice, tell me a method that had the best effects.

"I was diagnosed with cervical myelitis"
Something very unpleasant has been happening to me since April 2001. My legs have become heavier and I walk as if I were drunk, not being able to walk in a straight line and tripping over any unevenness. I saw a neurologist and I underwent a treatment with Cortisone and vitamins; then I was hospitalized at the University Hospital in Bucharest for three weeks, but my walk improved only during the period of time I was in hospital, as I underwent a treatment with perfusions with cortisone every day. I was diagnosed with cervical myelitis and spastic paraparesis. Now I undergo a treatment with vitamin B12 but I do not feel any improvements. Please, help me!

"My son suffers from ichthyosiform exfoliatve dermatitis (erythrodermia) - dry form""
I am a desperate mother. I have 3 children and my 8 year old son Cristinel was born with dry ichthyosiform erythroderma. I have seen a lot of doctors but they couldn"t do anything except ameliorate his pains for a short period of time. Let me tell you how this disease manifests: he raises little blisters on his arms and legs and then they break and graze. All over his body his skin is rough and wrinkled (it is like a coat too large for him). In the summer his condition becomes unbearable because he has terrible smarting pains. It breaks my heart when I see how sad he is when he comes back from school, because no child wants to play with him. Please, help me cure my child.

"We are two alcoholic parents"
I write to you with tears in my eyes, asking you to help me get my life back. I am married and I have two children. My husband is an alcoholic and, unfortunately, I have also come to like this terrible vice: drinking. Now, I am only 31 years old and I am desperately fighting to get back to normal. I was hospitalized and I underwent a treatment but with no results. I feel trapped and the more I try to escape the more trapped I feel. I do know that I have to get cured in order to raise my children but my urge to drink is too intense. Now I am about to lose my job, too. Please, help me! Do you know of any treatment which could make me hate alcohol? I hope you will give me an answer. Thank you!

"I weigh 130 kg at only 1, 50 m in height!"
I am 36 years old and in 1995, after a Ct ran at the "C.I. Parhon" Hospital I was diagnosed with ectopic pituitary gland, hypothyroidism and ovarian insufficiency. The doctors told me that I was born with this pituitary disorder. I have been undergoing a treatment with Euthyrox (levothyroxinum - produced by Merk KgaA), Aspacardin (acidum asparticum - produced by Terapia S.A.), Calmepam (bromazepamum - produced by Apic), Etinilestradiol (ethinylestradiolum - produced by Terapia S.A.) and Medroxiprogesteron (medroxyprogesteronum - produced by Terapia S.A.) and I see the doctor regularly. I cannot undergo a pituitary surgery because it would be too risky. The doctors also noticed voluminous left temporal and frontal subarachnoidian cysts. Can you imagine what it means to weigh 130 kg at 1, 50 m? Please, help me with an efficient natural treatment. I do not have enough money to undergo million lei treatments because I hardly live out of a small income. May God reward your kindness!
Maria - Bucuresti"After having undergone two mikleg surgeries I have terrible pains"
In 1999 I underwent a mikleg surgery at my right leg and in 2002 at my left leg.

Is there any balneal resort where such disorder may be treated? Hoping that someone will help me, let me thank you in advance.

"I have terrible pains in the ribs area and my nails crumble"
(Answer for Marioara Schoeler - Oradea - F. As No. 489)
The occurrence of white spots on smaller or larger areas of the toes nails, falling of the toes nails, their crumbling indicates nails mycosis - onicomycosis. There are many medicinal cures, but a quick healing depends on the strict undergoing of the treatment during a certain period of time. As the mycosis passes from one toe to another it is necessary that you should have a strict hygiene. You should buy the following medicines: Nizoral tablets (ketoconazolum - produced by Terapia S.A. & Janssen Pharmaceutica Belgium) - take one tablet during your lunch, between the first and the second course. It has effects in an acid environment; Pimafucin ointment (natamycinum - produced by Yamanouchi Europe Bv.); Exoderil, solution (naftifinum produced by Biochemie) - every evening wash your feet with warm water and soap. You should also use a brush to clean up your toenails. You may also try to file the entire sick nail as the mycosis is spread all over the nail. Cut your nail as short as possible. Use a dropper to apply the Exoderil solution on each toenail and after this apply the Pimafucin ointment. In order for this ointment not to be removed you should use a thin plastic bag to put your foot in (like a sock). When all the white spots are gone, the sick nails may fall off and other new healthy ones may grow. I wish you to be in good health.
"Is there anyone who knows a natural treatment for trombophlebitis?"
(Answer for Alexandra N. S. - Teleorman - F. As No. 489)
1. For trombophlebitis let me recommend you several natural treatments which were effective in similar situations:
wash you feet with 2-3 l warm water in which you should add 1/2 cup of coffee and vinegar. Keep your feet in this mixture until the liquid becomes lukewarm. After bathing them, keep your feet in a position that should be higher than your body position until they get dry. Apply crowfoot (Ranunculus) ointment on your feet. Wash your feet every evening before going to bed for 21 days with a 9 days brake.
Undergo a 21 days treatment with argil taking a 9 days break.
Smoothly massage the area with apple vinegar every day, for at least 1 month.
Drink 2 jugs of milfoil (Achillea millefolium) infusion between meals and 3 jugs of dandelion (Taraxacum officinale) infusion
Take Multifruct Total Forte nr.1 - 40-50 drops (added in tea or water), three times a day, for 3-6 months.
Smear the affected areas with Variterp (mixture of plants produced by Antibiotics Iasi), an antiphlebitis ointment based on chestnuts (Castanea). I wish you to be in good health!

2. Local application with hellebore tincture (Helleborus) in treating miklegs and especially quick elimination of oedemas and terrible pains caused by trombophlebitis may give spectacular results. I would also like to recommend you local applications with Stimuven (mixture of plants produced by Exhelios - Timisoara) gel or ointment also based on hellebore, produced by "Exhelios" - Timisoara. I wish you to be in good health!

"I have been down with colds for 30 years"
(Answer for Neculai Bejan - Com. Padureni, Jud. Vaslui, F. As, no 489)
I also suffered from terrible colds, with sore throat, blocked nose, bloodshot eyes for a long period of time (either summer or winter). Beside all these symptoms I also had a terrible cough that I could not get rid of in spite all the medicines I took. I used to be given injections and vaccines until I found out about the wonderful propolis tincture and about the Apilarnil capsules (Apilarnil Prop: lyophilized apilarnil - produced by Sicomed), propolis + pollen. The treatment seems simple, but is very efficient. In addition apilarnil has no side-effects. Take 30 drops of propolis tincture three times a day before each meal and one capsule of Apilarnil, propolis and pollen before going to bed. Drink three jugs of crowfoot (Ranunculus), milfoil (Achillea millefolium), and stinging nettle (Lamium maculatum) tea (infusions). May God help you!

(Answer for D.B. - Sibiu, F. As no. 489)
Dear Madam, I have also been through the same problems and now I have got another. My little son is three years and a half and he was seven months old when he was diagnosed with hypotonic biparesis and joint hiperlaxity. He couldn"t sit down, he couldn"t walk on all fours, he couldn"t babble. I began his remedial immediately: vitamins and physiotherapy at the "Budimex" Remedial Center with Dr. Liliana Mares. He took his first step when he was one year and a half and now he is cured from the locomotion point of view. The problems are not over yet because now I am trying to teach him to pronounce words.

"I have brown spots on my cheek"
(Answer for Mirela Damaschin - Botosani, F. As no. 489)
1. I recommend you a long time treatment. In order to obtain good results it should be done with patience and perseverance. External: in the morning and in the evening, tampon your spots with castor-oil (Ricinus communis). Internal: use dandelion (Taraxacum officinale) and St. John"s wort (Herba hyperici) tea. In 1 l of boiled water put 2 spoons of dandelion and 2 spoons of St. John"s wort. Cover the pot and let the content brew for 15 minutes; strain the content and then drink it but with no sweetener. Divide the quantity of tea into three parts and drink it before the essential meals. During the treatment, you should eat dietetic food, like vegetable soups, sugar beet, baked potatoes and a baked onion every day. Animal fats and products that contain sugar are not advisable. In your letter you say that you have lost your hope and that you do not believe that you will get rid of these spots anymore. Let me answer you with a passage from the Holy Books: "Never despair, be happy and nothing will harm you!" This should be our motto in life. I wish you to be in good health!

2. Dearest, I was 26 years old when I had the same problem. I was unrecognizable! An old woman taught me how to get rid of the spots. Peal autumn black radish, cut them into pieces and put them in the mincing machine. In the morning strain the content through a piece of lint until you obtain enough juice to fill up a small glass. The radish should be the size of a fist. Drink the juice and then lie on your right side for 30 minutes. The treatment lasted until I finished 10 kg of radish. If it is possible, you should go to a pharmacy and ask for a bismuth face cream in order to use it during the treatment. I wish you to be in good health!
Maria Siderie - str. Fagetului nr.52, Constanta, cod 8700
3. Mirela, I found the cure that I had been looking for in our dearest magazine. I read in Formula As magazine that castor-oil (Ricinus communis) has very good effects on these terrible spots. It did work for me. I got rid of these spots by oiling my face with it. I hope it will be useful for you too!
Claudia Crisan - Bucharest
4. In order to get rid of these spots you should wash your face with whey (obtained from fresh cheese or from yogurt) for 30 days. It will be 100% effective. I also recommend you 2 other treatments: every morning wash your face with wheat husk, keep it on your face for a few minutes and then rinse it. If you have argil, put one spoonful of it into a jug of water, leave it from evening to morning, and then wash your face with the argillaceous water. Good luck!

"My daughter has had perianal abscesses for ten years"
(Answer for Luminita Rudaru - Ramnicu Sarat, Jud. Buzau, F. As no.490)
I have referred before to the great effects obtained by treating the furuncules, abscesses (wherever they may be located) and acnea with Mibazon -local application. The thanks addressed by some of the readers of the "Formula As" magazine (there was also a rebel case of anal fistula) made me happy and convinced me one more time that it was a very effective medicine produced by the Antibiotics Factory in Iasi, but unfortunately not too well-known probably because it is commercialized only through the chain veterinary pharmacies. The foreign readers of "Formula As" Magazine could buy a similar medicine - Mastilone produced by the famous medicines factory "Pfhizer" and also commercialized in veterinary pharmacies. In order to treat your daughter"s abscesses you should apply this medicine locally after a previous and rigorous intimate hygiene. Continue this treatment for a while after the abscesses are gone in order to prevent a possible recurrence. I am sure that you will have excellent results and your daughter will finally get rid of the pains and of the repeated surgeries you referred to.

"I suffer from enterocolitis and I have a colon inflammation"
(Answer for Roxana -Bucharest, F. As no.490)
In the last five years I have been hospitalized for five times at "Fundeni" Hospital with the same diagnosis, I have undergone a treatment with Salazopyrin (sulfasalazinum - produced by Pharmacia & Upjohn) - a sulphamid which affected my kidneys and my liver, with no effect.

I underwent his treatment and after two months the ulcerations on the intestine closed and I don"t have blood in my faeces anymore, I have gained 5 kg, I have begun to eat almost everything without excesses, but I still avoid drinking coffee, alcohol and eating irritating spices. As this is a disease caused by stress I would also advise her to avoid being sad and to live temperately.

"At the age of only 3 years old, my child is insulin dependant"
(Answer for Christina Chitea - Bucharest, F. As no.490)
Bilberry (Vaccinum myrtillus) is a plant mostly found in the mountains, in the regions higher than 1400 m and it has an active substance called mirtilic acid (or vegetal insulin), which decreases blood sugar concentration. You should make an infusion of 2 teaspoons of bilberry for 1/2 l of boiling water. Drink it warm in small quantities so that you should have enough for the entire day. In order to increase the efficiency of the bilberry leaves, they may be combined with bean pods (Phaseolus vulgaris) and mulberry tree leaves (Morus Alba). I wish you to be in good health!

"I would like a natural treatment against streptococcus Spp"
(Answer for Otilia - Schela, Jud. Galati, F. As no.517)
In order to cure your disorder, two procedures are necessary. Internal use - birthwort herb (Aristolochia sp.) tea; External use - vaginal lavages with plants mixture made up of birthwort herb, blackwort (Symphytum officiale) and camomille (Matriceria chamomilla) (or crowfoot (Ranunculus) and milfoil (Achillea millefolium)). The receipt for the internal use is individualized from one person to another, depending on the disorders, weight, age etc. The receipt for vaginal lavages: one spoonful of birthwort herb, one spoonful of blackwort root (well minced), one spoonful of camomille blossom. Leave all these plants to soak into 1/2 l of water, from evening till morning, when they should be strained. Put the resulting liquid aside; boil the plants left into 1/2 l of water until you have half of it. Strain this decoction too, leave it until it gets colder, and then combine it with the cold steeping. Use the resulting solution for vaginal lavages every evening. The treatment lasts from 7 to 14 days, depending on the seriousness of the disorder. Unless you have birthwort herb, let me offer it to you from this year"s crop, at least for the internal use. I cultivate this plant in an unpolluted region. I do not intend to advertise it but if you use the plant harvested from the fields you should be aware of the risks involved. I wish you to be in good health!

"I would like a natural treatment against hypercholesterolemia and cholesterolosis"
(Answer for Elena Simion- Bacau, F. As no.517)
Dear Mrs. Elena, your organism must synthesize an important quantity of cholesterol because of a metabolic disorder. It has been scientifically proved that fish oil may decrease fats concentration in organism (triglycerides, cholesterol) playing an important role in preventing cardiovascular and biliary affections. This is why I strongly advise you to eat as large quantities of fish as you can (herring, mackerel, and salmon). Omega 3 fatty acids contained by fish oil are changed into substances which dilate the blood vessels, fluidize blood and reduce the blood fats concentration diminishing the atherosclerosis risk. An important quantity of Omega 3 fatty acids may be found in the product Bio-Marin Plus, a supplement with concentrated fish oil, which contains B12 vitamin and folic acid, two nutritive substances decreasing blood pressure and protecting heart and the cardiovascular system. I would also recommend you a very balanced diet based mostly on fresh fruit and vegetables and try to avoid animal fats (butter, grease, sour cream, fat meat, especially pork).
