"I suffer from chorioretinitis and I always have the sensation of a foreign body into my throat"
I am 25 years old and the disease I suffer from has destroyed my life. I do not know for sure what is happening to me and what the cause of my health problems is (the doctors I have seen cannot tell me anything and I have been feeling worse and worse for the last 9 months). In a few words, I suffer from chorioretinitis which has seriously affected my sight and which seems to have a viral nature (I suffer from Cytomegalus virus IgG, herpesvirus and EpsteinBarr virus IgG). Besides this eye disease (wounds inside my eyes, that have cicatrized and the scars disturb my sight within certain areas of my eyes), I have fever every day (37-37, 5 °C), sometimes I have terrible headaches and my eyes hurt; I also have problems with my throat and with my chest: I have the sensation of having something in my throat, a foreign body, which prevents me from breathing properly. Let me also mention that during this period of time I saw a lot of doctors from many sections: ophthalmology, O.R.L., endocrinology, catching diseases, rheumatology and internal diseases. I have run many medical tests, starting with complete blood tests and ending with Ekg, throat tomography, Rmn at my head, 1+2 Hiv test, but nobody can tell me anything about my disease, nobody can help me in any way. I would like to ask you, if you can, to help me and maybe to tell me what I should do in order to be examined at the "Cantacuzino" Institute, which, I think, is my last chance to alleviate my sufferings. Thank you very much for the fact that, many times, you do your utmost to help so many suffering people. Thank you very much!
"Help me save my friend!"
I would like to help my best friend through the intermediary of this magazine. She is 44 years old and, as the doctors say, she has just a short time left to live. I cannot believe that such a merry and kind person could be struck down by such a terrible disease. In 2000, my friend found out that a big mole that she had on her back was a melanoma (skin cancer). She underwent surgery, took chemotherapy sessions and she felt well until December 2001. She got hospitalized at Ploiesti in December and then in a clinic from Cluj, where she underwent a surgery as the ganglions from her armpit had been affected. Since then, she has stayed only in hospital and on sick leave. In May 2002, having fever all the time, she found out that her lungs had been affected by cancer, as well. Now she has metastases on 70 % of the entire surface of her body. Her hilum has been affected, too, and she coughs all the time. As you can see, the disease has taken its course at a high pitch, in only 3 months. The doctors think that there is no chance of stagnation of the disease and that my friend will never get cured. I wish my friend could get cured. Maybe God will do a miracle and my prayers, as well as the prayers of her parents, her brothers and her friends will save her life. Thank you very much!

"My little daughter suffers from cutaneous angioma"
After having run a specialized consultation, my 6 year old daughter was diagnosed with cutaneous angioma. This disease is not congenital, it occurred two years ago (seemingly as a consequence of some nodules that occurred after being given an injection). At first, the disease covered a part of his right leg, but lately it has started to extend. If you have ever been confronted with a similar problem and you solved it or you know any method of treatment, please, let me know about it, so that I could have my little daughter cured.

"I cannot get cured of Candida albicans"
One year and a half ago, after having undergone a dental procedure, I got infected with candidosis. I tried to treat it in many ways: with borate glycerol, Stamicin (nystatiunum, produced by Antibiotice-Iasi), Pimafucin (natamycinum, produced by Yamanouchi Europe Bv), Nizoral (ketoconazolum, produced by Janssen Pharmaceutica), vitamins, Citrolin- solution (combinations: cetrimid + lidocaine hidroclorhide, produced by Pharco Pharmaceuticals), Hexoralatten tablets (produced by Godecke Parke Davis), but with no effect. Some other symptoms have recently occurred: insomnia, heartaches, nervousness, panic and restlessness. Some fissures occurred on my tongue and they are visible especially on the lateral parts of it, and this fact scares me terribly. Within this period of time I also suffered from a ferriprive anemia that I treated and the result of the medical tests were good. However, the fissures from my tongue remained the same. If among the readers of this magazine there is anybody who knows of a natural treatment or of a doctor who can successfully treat the infections with Candida albicans, I would like to ask him to help me. Thank you very much!
"How could I get rid of varicose eczema?"
I suffer from miklegs, trombophlebitis and, for about 4 years, from varicose eczema. What worries me a lot is the fact that, after having undergone a lot of treatments, the eczema extends, having now a surface of about 6 cm; its color is red-brownish in the middle and purple to its side. I would like to ask those who have ever been confronted with this problem, to let me know me the remedy that cured them. Thank you in advance!

"I need a treatment against infantile encephalopathy"
I suffer from infantile encephalopathy. I have seen some doctors, but with no result. The disease manifests in the following way: when I speak, the left side of my face distorts. If you can help me with any treatment, please, answer me through the intermediary of this magazine. Thank you very much!
"As a consequence of having undergone some surgeries, my little girl grew up asymmetrically"
I am the mother of a 14 years old girl. 12 years ago, when she saw a doctor, she was detected a left shoulder blade tumor (ganglion with the size of a sparrow egg). The tumor had a malignant nature, fibrosarcoma - type, and the girl had this tumor surgically removed. Immediately after the surgery, she underwent 20 cobalt-therapy sessions and a treatment with cytostatics for one year. When she finished the treatment, after examining the results of the radiology test, the doctor thought that the girl had metastasis (ganglions on her left lung) and opened up her thoracic cavity. Fortunately, his supposition was not confirmed. We need a solution to solve the problems that occurred as a consequence of the surgery. The girl grew up asymmetrically: the osseous and the muscular systems from the left side of her body are not properly developed and her left breast is much smaller than the right one. The doctors say that the only solution - a partial solution, actually - is the remedial gymnastics, which my daughter started to do two years ago, but the results are not visible yet. What can I do? I would also like to mention that, as a consequence of this asymmetry, my daughter also suffers from scoliosis. I sympathize with her and, at the same time, I am afraid that the tumor may recur or that my daughter"s body may distort even worse. Please, advise me on what to do! Best wishes!

"My husband is paralyzed and my little nephew cries in his sleep"
My 57 year old husband suffered a vascular attack 3 years ago, being diagnosed with: post intra-cerebral unoperated hematoma, brachiofacial with expressive aphasia, flaccid and spasmodic right hemiplegia. As a consequence of this attack, his right side is paralyzed, he has speaking deficiencies, the blood circulation of the paralyzed part is disturbed, and his right leg and hand are numb. He has gone to the Recovery Hospital in Iasi many times, but the results are not the expected ones. Please, recommend him an appropriate treatment (be it allopathic or natural), no matter how expensive it may be. We would very much like him to recover, at least partially. I have another problem, as well: I have a 3 years and a half old little nephew. He has been agitated during the night for two weeks, he cries in his sleep 2-3 times a night. We do not know what to do to calm his down. Maybe you will recommend us something that should make him sleep untroubled. Thank you very much!

"I need the plant called Serenoa repens"
I suffer from prostate adenoma. They recommended me the medicine Prostamol (produced by Berlin Chemie) - a purified extract made up from withered leaves of Serenoa repens (Sabalis serrulatae). 30 tablets of it cost 400.000 lei. It is expensive and it is not compensated. Do you know what the name of this plant is and where I could buy it from? Should I use decoction, infusion or tincture? What else could be effective against this disorder? Thank you very much!

"As a consequence of a treatment with progesterone, I have hair grown on my face"
I am 40 years old and for 15 years I have been trying everything possible to get rid of the male hormones that I got as a consequence of a treatment with progesterone that I underwent when I was a child; now, as a result of undergoing this treatment, I have beard on my entire face. For 5 years, I underwent a treatment with Diane-35 (produced by Schering Ag) prescribed by the doctors from "C. I. Parhon" Institute from Bucharest, but with no effect. This is why I would like to ask you to recommend me a clinic where I could undergo a hormonal treatment that should be effective (possibly a clinic where sex change surgeries could be performed, as I am sure that this is where I will find a remedy against my disorder). Thank you very much!

"My stomach cannot digest and my organism cannot assimilate anything"
(Answer for Lacramioara - Iasi, F.As nr. 492)
1. I was also confronted with a similar situation in 1991, as I was suffering from a so-called spastic colitis, which gave me a rather bad state of health: colon pains, diarrhoea - every day, insomnia. I had lost a lot of weight, as, being so afraid, I used to eat everything boiled and to take all kind of medicines, but with no effect. After 6 months of suffering, a doctor recommended me the treatment with argyle (May God give her good health!) This treatment is known thanks to your magazine, too; however, I will take the liberty of mentioning, one more time, the procedure: in the morning you should drink the water in which you put 1 teaspoonful of argyle in the previous evening; repeat this procedure for 7 days; during the next 2 weeks, put 1 teaspoonful of argyle into a glass of water in the evening and the next day you should drink its entire content, this time, for the next 2 weeks. At the end of the 3 weeks of treatment, you will get cured (this happened in my situation). During the period of treatment, you should drink 1-1, 5 l of liquid every day (namely tea) and avoid the fats, as the argyle is incompatible with them. I wish you to be in good health!

"My son suffers from bulbitis"
(Answer for Filofteia Stoian- Brasov, F.As nr.492)
1. I also suffered from bulbitis, with terrible pains, that woke me up in the night, between 2 and 4 o"clock. The allopathic treatment managed only to alleviate the pains, for a short time. I managed to get rid of the pains thanks to the following treatment: Very strict and long standing (6 months) diet. I drank only marigold (Calendula) fresh, lukewarm infusion. Way of preparation: add 6-7 teaspoonfuls of marigold flowers to 1 l of boiling water and let it brew for 10-15 minutes. You should drink 2 mugs a day. Homeopathic treatment. I am sure that there are homeopathy consulting rooms in Brasov, too, and if there are not, your son should see Dr. Camelia Sararu from Similimum Homeopathy Foundation, tel. 021/3224625. For the diet diagram and other details, please, contact me.

The stomach can recover in a rather long time and it can get disturbed easily. I wish you to be in good health!

"I need a remedy against ulcerous hemorrhagic rectocolitis"
(Answer for Simona Budai- Botosani, F.As nr.518)
The treatment of the intestine inflammatory diseases: ulcerous-hemorrhagic rectocolitis and Crohn disease is long standing and it requires a lot of patience, care and important financial efforts, as the medicines are very expensive. The ulcerous-hemorrhagic rectocolitis is an autoimmune disease. The cause of this disease is not known, the research indicates certain genetic factors or an exaggerated immune answer of the intestine to the stimuli of a bacterium that has not been identified yet. The treatment with Salofalk that you undergo is very good, and the fact that you keep a certain diet is also a positive fact. Depending on the evolution of the disease, only advised by the gastroenterologist, you should undergo specific treatments, depending on the seriousness of the activity access of the disease. The most important thing is that you should be able to keep your disease under control, to know the risk factors of the recurrence and to take every precaution. I could help you with a lot of new information regarding your disease as I myself suffered from this disease for ten years. You should know that every patient reacts in a way that is different from the others" reactions. The recovery periods may be shorter or longer, depending on the situation; now, the life of the patient is like the one of a healthy man and the diet is less restrictive, depending on the tolerance of every patient.
I wish you to be in good health and to have a good life!

"Because of his lung tumour, my father keeps coughing"
(Answer for Iulian Oprica- Giurgiu, F.As nr. 522)
1. What results from your letter seems to be a serious cough, caused by a lung tumor: I do not know whether it has a malignant nature or not. If the other treatments, respectively central anticoughing, bronchodilatator etc. have not been effective, you could try a palliative treatment that consists in inhalations with Respules Budicort (U.S. Budeflam), which contains 1 mg in a milliliter. In the serious situations, a dose up to 8 mg of Budicort may be administered. The following question arises: does he cough because he feels that he does not have enough air as I suspect - or not? In my patients" case, this treatment which - I will say it one more time - is palliative (which means that it does not lead to recovery), is effective: the patients can sleep. If you think that there is dyspnoea, which means a serious "air thirst", maybe you will be supposed to administrate him oxygen at home. I wish you to be in good health and to be patient! You should collaborate with your family doctor.

2. Dear Madam, it is possible that your father should cough so badly because of the medicines he takes for his blood pressure. I was also confronted with a similar cough and only three months later, after having carefully read the prospectus, I found out its cause. I wish your father to be in good health! May God bless you! Best regards,

3. I was also confronted with the same problems. My father was diagnosed with left lung unoperative neoplasm, on the hilum, 3 months ago. As a result of having undergone the treatment that I am going to recommend you here, he feels extremely well, his immunitary system has strengthened and he does not cough any more, he has a good appetite, even though he has been undergoing the treatment only for a month and 20 days. The treatment is to be undergone for three months. At the same time, he should eat a lot of fruit and vegetables; he should take extract from Blue alga (at least 1, 5 g per day) and completely eliminate the meat from his alimentation. I read an answer in F.As nr. 513/April 2002, given by a pharmacist from Bucharest to a person with an unoperative brain tumor. The name of the pharmacist is Rodica Graur from Bucharest (tel. 021/2126272). She has at her pharmacy some remarkable Chinese products for healing the tumors. These medicines are: Holican, Cordiceps and Chitosan, authorized by the Ministry of Health and already tried by many people who, with their help, got cured from the tumors. Get in touch with Mrs. Graur as soon as possible and you will not be sorry. The products will be sent to you by Prioripost parcel. They are rather expensive, but it is worth to make this effort.
In order to calm down the cough - till you get the parcel (maximum 3 days) - you should use the natural product Bronchicum Elixir, produced in Germany, which you can buy from any pharmacy. It is very effective. Mrs. Graur has assured us that, after the 3 months of treatment with the respective products, the tomography will show that the tumor is gone. I wish you to be in good health!

"How could I help my little son breathe normally?"
(Answer for Georgiana- Little Falls, Sua, F.As nr. 522)
Georgiana, you could try to pour drops of salted water in the nose of your son, a few times a day and especially before he goes to sleep. A few minutes after doing this, ask him to blow his nose well. You can buy the salted water as such from the pharmacies or you could prepare it as follows: put one spoonful of rough-grained salt in 250 ml of boiling water (you can buy it from the food shop). After this solution gets colder, you should pour it in a small bottle and pour two drops in every nostril of your son, three-four times a day, with a dropper. As regarding his ability to smell, you may use the box thorn (Lycium Barbarum) oil. You should coat the nostrils of your son with a cotton wool small bud (an ear bud) soaked into box thorn oil. Try this procedure once a day, in the morning, after the procedure with salted water and after your son has blown his nose well. Apply the oil experimentally for one week to see whether it is effective. I used it and after about three days, I got more and more able to smell. If it is effective, use it for one week, take a 2-3 day break and then use it again until you are sure that he is able to smell properly again. You can buy box thorn oil from "Plafar".

Then, keep the towel on your eyes until it gets colder. Repeat this procedure for 10-14 days, depending on how serious the disease is. The result is guaranteed for any eye disease.

"I have hydatid cysts on my liver"
(Answer for Dragut Constantin- Braila, F.As nr.523)
As I suffer from the same disorder, I would like to let you know what I personally found out. Under some unclear circumstances, I ate some food infested with tapeworm (Taenia solium) eggs. I had an inexplicable discomfort in the hepatic area, without realizing what was wrong with me. After many years, I was diagnosed with the hydatid cyst, a fully developed one, and another four in incipient phase. From the very beginning, I resorted to Prof. Radulescu, head of department at Imf Bucharest and head of the Parasitology Clinic at the "Colentina" University Hospital. She looks after patients, both before and after they undergo the surgery. The allopathic treatment with albendazolum sterilizes the cysts, excluding the risk of their dissemination during the surgery and that of the development of some cysts that are in an incipient phase. Regarding the natural treatment, I would advise you to contact Prof. Ovidiu Bojor (tel. 021/6333970). In order to be sure, you should, by all means, contact Prof. Radulescu, who knows every aspect of this problem as she is specialized in this field. When facing a serious problem, we have to consciously accept the inevitable side effects. Anyway, you should avoid undergoing successive surgeries. I wish you to be in good health!
