"I need a treatment so that I could have the renal function improved"
My father has high blood pressure and he has been undergoing a treatment against it for eight years. Two months ago I took him here, in Canada, for a period of time. As he was not feeling well, he ran some medical tests. The results of the investigations that show the kidneys functioning are not very good. Let me put before you the results and the normal limits according to the Canadian standard: glucose-7.0 (normal: 4.0-6.0 mmol/l), urea-14.2 (normal: 3.2-7.1), creatinine-251 (normal: 50-110). The high value of the creatinine worries us a lot. Now, my father undergoes a treatment with Norvasc (amlodipinum, produced by Pfizer International Corporation), Altace (ramipril, produced by Monarch Pharmaceuticals), Aspirin (acidum acetylsalycilicum, produced by Bayer Ag) and Furosemid (furosemidum, produced by Labormed). All these were prescribed to him here, in Canada. Let me also mention that he suffered from serious pulmonary emphysema, which was treated. I would like to thank to all the readers from Romania who could recommend me a natural treatment that should improve the renal function.

I had my teeth done and I do not have problems either with my nose or my sinuses. I suffer from endemic goiter, but I undergo a treatment. I have stomachaches only when I refrain from eating.

"I suffer from hepatitis B and C and I have smarting sensations in my mouth"
My problem is that I suffer from chronic hepatitis with virus B and C and I also have a smarting sensation in my mouth, as if I ate hot pepper all the time. This is a cry for your help, I am desperate and I have lost all my hope, as I do not know what to do anymore. Please, help me! Someone may know something against the smarting sensation that I have in my mouth. It is not Candida, the doctors cannot detect any microbe, they say that the problem is vitamins deficit. I also took vitamins, but with no effect. Thank you very much!

"My little niece was diagnosed with Ewing sarcoma"
At the age of 17 years old, when her colleagues dream about their future, Anca, my niece is confronted with a serious health problem. In August 1998 she had a tumor surgically removed and she was diagnosed with hemangiosarcoma. After one year she underwent another surgery at "Dr. Bagdasar" Hospital and then, a treatment with cytostatics for 12 months at Fundeni Oncology Institute (September 1999-August 2000). Even though the medical tests run every month at Fundeni Hospital did not show anything serious and even though she felt normally, the tumor recurred; thus, she had to undergo the third surgery in April 2002. After having run the medical tests at "V. Babes" Institute, she was diagnosed with Ewing sarcoma. I would like to ask all the readers of the "Formula As" magazine who know or have heard about any remedy against this disease, to write me. Thank you very much!

"I suffer from essential tremor"
In 1998 I was diagnosed with essential tremor. My head shakes. I do not know what to do any longer. I am only 25 years old. The doctors prescribed me medicines, but they were effective only for short periods of time. If I did not strain my neck muscles, the tremor would be noticeable. I have isolated myself from my friends and from my family, because it is very difficult for me to control myself. There are moments when my nape hurts a lot because of so much straining. You cannot imagine what joy you would bring me if you helped me eliminate the effects of this disease (its cause is still unknown)! Now you are my only hope. Thank you very much!
"My son suffers from bronchiolitis"
My little son, who is 2 years and 6 months old, suffers from bronchiolitis; he was diagnosed with this disease when he was one year and six months old. He was hospitalized and he underwent a treatment while being there, but because of the many treatments, he became allergic to antibiotics, having convulsions when antibiotics were administered to him. Even though I administer him gamma globulin every year and he undergoes a treatment with Bromwaxon for six months every year, the effect is the same, he has the same symptoms: fever, agitation, cough, difficult and whistling breath, progressive loss of weight. It breaks my heart to see that my son suffers so much. I would like to ask the specialists or the kind people who were confronted with this suffering for help by the medium of this magazine. Please, if you can, answer me as soon as possible so that I could save my son from this torment. Thank you very much! I am looking forward to getting your help!

"My little nephew suffers from Crohn disease"
My nephew is 15 years old and he suffers from a terrible disease for which there is no treatment: Crohn disease. It manifests by inflammations on his large intestine: these inflammations get open and this fact causes terrible pains. The treatments alleviate the disease, but they do not cure him. Let me also mention that my nephew has been living in Canada with his parents for four years. He was diagnosed with this disease two years ago and the doctors from there could not cure him. This is why I would like to turn to the readers of this magazine and I ask them to help me alleviate his suffering.

"My husband suffers from pulmonary neoplasm recurrence"
Five years and four months ago my husband underwent a surgery of pulmonary neoplasm. He underwent a left superior lobectomy for moderate differentiated epidermoid carcinoma. He had many complications after undergoing the surgery because of the low immunity and of the treatments with cytostatics and cobalt. The period that followed, he resorted to natural therapies: teas, juices, apicultural products, aloe, antioxidants, Cantastim (imunomodulator, produced by Cantacuzino Institute) - 4 cures, Isorel (antitumoral, produced by Novipharm) - as much as we could afford - we are pensioners, and, last but not least, prayers. However, this year in February, the doctors detected a recurrence at the operated lobe. Now, he coughs a lot, expectorates, has fever, feels weak, has no will, and is depressed. He takes antibiotics and syrup against the cough. The doctors have told me that the tumor will soon block his respiratory tracks. There may be other treatments, too. Please, help me. I will say it one more time: I am desperate! Thank you very much! May God bless you and give you good health! Best regards,

"At the age of 24 years old, my nephew is dying"
My 24 years old nephew underwent a surgery of malignant tumor at his brain last year. He took some sessions of cobalt rays for one year, and then he felt well for a certain period of time. We were happy, convinced that he had got cured In August he started to feel bad. He went to Cluj and he underwent a second surgery, this time the tumor being benign. Now he is paralyzed and the doctors do not give him any chance to get cured. He is such a good child that I would even give my life if I knew that he would live! Please, help me save his life!

"My daughter suffers from a rare disease: corneal dystrophy"
My name is Visan Elena and I am desperate. My 21 years old daughter suffers from corneal dystrophy; the ophthalmologists say that this is a very rare situation (they have not been confronted with it before in our country) and they do not know of any treatment against it, the only solution being a surgery of cornea transplant. I respectfully ask you to help me and to inform me whether you know of any remedy of this disorder, other than the transplant. Thank you very much!

"My grandfather suffers from mammary cancer"
I am twenty years old and I have always lived with my grandparents (and of course my parents) and I have got even more attached to them than to my parents, who were always at work. A few days ago, I received a piece of news that darkened my life: my 81 years old grandfather suffers from mammary cancer (on his left side) in an advanced stage. I would like to ask you for advice, a treatment based on plants or any other alternative method that could help my grandfather, as in such situations the allopathic medicine is helpless. The treatments with cytostatics or the surgery would certainly hasten his death. Please, help me! Maybe among the readers of your magazine there are people who got cured (or at least managed to slow down the evolution of the disease). I am looking forward to receiving your answer!
For Gojnea Georgeta (Hodkin disease), Savin A. (Inoperative stromal sarcoma) and Oprea Nina (broncho-pulmonary neoplasm): you should contact Mr. Nicolae Pop from Cluj, tel. 0264/170677as soon as possible.

"How could I get rid of an obsessive-compulsive disturbance?"
(Answer for Mirela, F.As nr. 509)
I was also confronted with two episodes of this terrible disease and, as I know how difficult to survive this diagnosis is, I would like to let Mirela know that there are two medicines that may make the disease disappear. I refer here especially to the two medicines that helped me lot. They are Anafranil (clomipaminum, produced by Novartis) - at first one tablet a day, for a few days, then two tablets a day, and after this three tablets a day for a longer period of time). But the best medicine against the obsessive-compulsive disturbance is Seroxat (European Paxil), which you should take the same way as the previous one, progressively: one tablet a day, one and a half and then long standing maintaining treatment, two tablets a day. Seroxat is rather expensive (a box containing 30 tablets costs about 1, 5 millions), but it is on the list of totally compensated medicines. So, if Mirela has a psychiatrist who diagnosed her, he could help her obtain the compensated medicine. Please, inform Mirela about what I have let you know, but without publishing my name. We all know what people are like and there are only few who understand that a psychic disease does not necessarily mean madness!
"My mother suffers from disco-somatic sclerosis"
(Answer for Mariana Rusu-Italy, F. As nr. 520)
Dear Mariana, the pains that your mother feels after every effort may be caused by the accumulation of some noxious products, called free radicals, in your joints. The free radicals are oxygen molecules resulting from the metabolic processes. Their action destroys the organism cells. The number of free radicals is high if we drink alcohol, smoke, live in polluted areas, and lead a stressing life. The research has shown that selenium has the role of neutralizing these free radicals. In the every day life we can find selenium in eggs, fish (mackerel, herring), but the quantity is not enough and this is why it should be supplemented. It is very important that you should use an organic form of selenium, preferably connected to L-metionine, which assures 100 % absorption. The combination with vitamins A, B6, C and E increases the antioxidant effect of selenium. This is why I would like to advise your mother to use Bio-Selenium +Zinc, which has all these qualities. I wish you to be in good health!

"My grandmother has pus under her nails"
(Answer for G. Ene, F. As nr. 525)
Your grandmother may have a low immunity or a super-infection with certain germs or fungi. As a local treatment, your grandmother should use: A solution made up from 1 l of water and 6 pills of Chloramine, into which your grandmother should soak her fingers as many times a day as possible, when the disease manifests. Take 3-4 green nuts which you should pound well in a glass or wooden screw nut and after this pour over them 500 ml alcohol 700. Stir it well, for a few days. She should soak her fingers into this solution for a few minutes in the morning and in the evening, for no more than 10 days. As a general treatment, she should take one ampoule of Cantastim subcutaneously, every 7 days, for five weeks, in spring and autumn. I wish your grandmother to be in good health!

"I have been suffering from Arnold neuralgia for 30 years"
(Answer for Elena Olteanu- Ploiesti, F.As nr. 525)
I would like to advise you to treat this disease as seriously as possible because, even though the disease has a benignant character and does not endanger your life, due to the polymorphic symptomatology (dizziness sensations, head and neck burning sensations, vomiting sensations, thick and head sensation etc.) and to its progressive character, the patient"s social integration is more and more difficult. As a natural treatment, let me recommend you: Compresses with crushed cabbage leaves, applied on your nape and forehead; make sure that the internal side of the leaf is applied on the sick area. You should keep them for at least 12 hours a day, for one month. Boicil (plants: Helleborus species, produced by Terapia S.A.) infiltrations (one ampoule at every session) - it was extremely effective in my case. The infiltration is deep and it should be performed layer by layer, from inside to outside. I recommend you not to use Xyline or Novocain. Sometimes acupuncture may solve the problem for long periods of time. The success highly depends on your confidence and on the doctor"s skill. I would like to recommend you the Visarion Institute (near Romana Square) from Bucharest, Dr. Lavinia Nanu. I am looking forward to receiving good news from you.

"My son cannot get over a pulmonary virosis"
(Answer for Mirela Comis- Buzau, F. As nr. 525)
From what you have written, I can understand that your son continues to have respiratory tracks infections, even though he has many times been treated and investigated. I suggest that you should go to a hematology institute and, based on some complex medical tests, see if he suffers from any immunodeficiency type (at the level of the cells or at the level of qualitative antibodies production). Many times, even though the immunoglobulin is normal, an immunoelectrophoresis may indicate low concentrations of certain antibodies types, the most frequent one being the lack of IgA and IgG2, which seems to be the cause of your son"s disease. Best wishes,

"My little daughter suffers from urinary infection"
(Answer for Mariana, F. As nr. 527)
You should not inquire about natural remedies for your daughter. From the brief description made by you, I am inclined to think that your daughter may have much more serious problems than a simple recurring urinary infection. The fact that despite all the treatments with antibiotics the infection still persists makes me think that there may be a urinary system malformation - for example vesicoureteral reflux (which means that the urine gets back to the kidneys from the bladder, when the latter gets contracted), urethral stenosis or even renal lithiasis (calculus). You should see a pediatrist, for a complete kidneys investigation, starting with an echography and continuing with a radio-isotropic investigation of their function. If there is a malformation, this should be surgically repaired as soon as possible (I say this as it seems to have already affected her growth). Sometimes, in life, you should also resort to surgery.

"A terrible trouble may meet me: leg amputation"
(Answer for Alexandru Casa- Bod Sat, Jud. Brasov, F. As nr. 529)
1. In order to have your blood circulation improved and to stop the evolution of your disease, let me recommend you a natural product based on salmon oil- Omega 3, wheat germs oil and vitamin E- natural and you should keep a vegetarian diet +fish. You should give up smoking, alcohol, sugar, animal fats, and salt.
Dr. Pharmacist Ion Pavel- Bucharest, tel. 0723/531763
2. First of all, you should not despair. You should pray to God, thank him and be aware that he will help you. Give something as a present to a poor man or offer to help someone this very day. Fast for at least one week, with light food and with a lot of fruit and vegetables, preferably fresh, as salads. Avoid fats for a period of time, as they make the blood viscous. Drink yoghourt instead of milk. You should take "Granovit" (bio granules, invented by Nicolae Gazea) (germinated wheat flakes) - 3-6 spoonfuls a day, in cures of 3-4 weeks. You can buy it from the baker"s from Brasov, or from "Apicola" (str. Muresenilor, Brasov). You should make a lot of physical exercise, even simple walking a few times a day, in order to have the blood circulation improved. When you rest, you should keep your feet higher than the rest of your body (put 1-2 pillows on the bed, under your heels). Drink teas made from dandelion (Taraxacum officinale), rose hips and stinging nettle (Urtica dioica) (1-2 teaspoonfuls of plant for a mug of boiling water, 2-3 mugs a day); the liquids fluidize blood and the teas made from these plants make the veins inflamed walls thin and open them up to facilitate the blood circulation. Take foot baths in the morning and in the evening, for 15 minutes, with concentrated tea of stinging nettle (Urtica dioica) leaves (two handfuls of minced dry leaves for one liter of hot water). In the evening, you should cover the sick leg with a bandage which has been soaked into concentrated decoction of stinging nettle (Urtica dioica) and keep your leg higher than the rest of your body; in order to avoid the cold sensation, you should cover the bandage with nylon and put a blanket over it. If you can bear it, you may keep the bandage with decoction on your leg from evening till morning; if you cannot bear it, you may gently wipe your leg and massage it with chestnuts or hellebore (Helleborus purpurescens) tincture, or smear it with Stimuven (based on natural products, produced by Exhelios). Mince chestnuts (Aesculus hippocastanum) - with the help of the mincing machine. You can find them especially on the alley from under Tampa. Put them into a jar and cover it with alcohol: stir it once a day; after one week, strain it with the help of a handkerchief and squeeze it well. Massage your leg gently starting from your toes to the knees (always upwards, never downwards). Buy hellebore (Helleborus purpurescens) tincture from Plafar or Apicola shops, or prepare it by yourself, from hellebore roots bought from the merchants from the Brasov markets, as it follows: put a handful of minced hellebore root into a jar with screw cap; add two mugs of home made alcohol and let the mixture brew in a lukewarm place for one-two weeks, stirring it every day. You should be careful and use this tincture only for massages upwards (you should not apply it over cuts or wounds!), not internally. The hellebore is very toxic! You should not forget to label the jar. If you do not find hellebore at the market, you should buy the gel or the Romanian ointment Stimuven - based on hellebore - from the pharmacy. The chestnuts and the hellebore, in external applications, are well known for improving the blood circulation. I wish you to be in good health!

"I may paralyze any time because I suffer from discal hernia"
(Answer for Marian Lucia- Cluj Napoca, F. As nr. 529)
You should contact Dumitru Dester from Ragla Village, Cetate Commune, Bistrita Nasaud County. He successfully treats even serious spine disorders. He helped many people who suffered from discal hernia to avoid surgery. A detailed article about his treatments was published in "F. As" nr. 443 (December 11th 2001). There are also a lot of people who managed to avoid undergoing a surgery and to get rid of the troubles caused by the discal hernia by taking mud packing and warm baths in the mineral waters from Sarata Monteoru from Buzau County. There are discal hernia cases mentioned in the archive of "Formula As" magazine that were solved by the treatment with Groza Vitalizing, an original extract from 12 plants ("Natura" Consulting room, where Mr. Groza may be contacted is situated in Arad, str. Lucian Blaga nr. 15, tel. 0257/280946).

"Our child suffers from obstructive supratentorial hydrocephalus"
(Answer for Aurelia Eberling- Timisoara, F. As nr. 530)
As it comes from your description, the hydrocephalus evolution may have stopped. The fact that at the age of 2 years and 7 months old your child is able to do all the things that any other child does at this age is encouraging. However, it is difficult to give a final prognostication regarding his evolution. Of course, the surgery would have been the best alternative for him, as the evolution of liquid accumulation in his brain could have been stopped. The fact that other children underwent the same surgery and did not survive does not mean anything. Usually, the children who suffer from hydrocephalus and who need to undergo such surgeries have other health problems as well, and the fact that they did not survive could be connected with other problems that they had. Now, the best solution for your child is to run a cerebral Ct (computer tomography). With the result of this investigation, you should go to a neurologist or a neurosurgeon for children and ask for his opinion. If you manage to scan the images and to send them to me by e-mail, together with all the information regarding your child, I will try to discuss his case with somebody from the hospital I work at, here, in the Usa. Best regards,

My father underwent a cancer surgery, too, but at his duodenum and he got restored very quickly, undergoing the treatment prescribed by Mr. Ioan Istrate (for any type of cancer) about whom "Formula As" repeatedly wrote. Let me also mention that my father did not undergo any treatment with cytostatics or irradiations. Other important factors are faith, the will to get cured, positive thinking and family support, so that the patient could have a high moral.
