"I suffer from allergo-infected sinusitis and articular rheumatism"
I have had health problems for almost 6 years. At first, I did not pay any attention to them, but little by little they have started to affect me. I suffer from allergo-infected sinusitis, as some doctors tell me, or, as others say, from allergo- infected rhinitis or bilateral frontal sinusitis. Because of this sinusitis, I permanently have the sensation of pressure inside my head, eye pains, frontal headaches, which, especially in the morning, make me feel absent-minded, dizzy, depressed; other effects are the lack of concentration, the decrease of memory etc. Many times, even when the weather is sunny, I feel a terrible pressure in my frontal area; this pressure gives me terrible headaches, a sensation of dizziness sensations and makes me nervous. Let me also mention that in 1996, as a consequence of a hit, I was left with a rather serious peripheral nervous atrophy. I ran a sinuses radiography which showed that I had a thickened mucous or a benignant tumor. High atmospheric pressure, cold air and strong humidity make me feel bad. I have undergone a lot of treatments, but with no effect. Another disease I suffer from is articular rheumatism. I have terrible pains at my right leg, below my knee. I used anti-rheumatic ointments and I take a lot of exercise. I also suffer from cervical spondylosis. Please, recommend me a natural treatment so that the effects of the sinusitis, nervous atrophy and cervical spondylosis could be diminished. I only want to have a clear, coherent thinking, which is absolutely necessary for my job. Thank you very much for all the good things you accomplish in the benefit of those who suffer.

"My son suffers from generalized convulsive tonicoclonic attacks"
I have a 22 years old son who has serious health problems. When he was demobilized, he was employed as a hospital attendant at a centre of handicapped children, in our town. Meanwhile, he studied and passed the exam for a sanitary college in Ploiesti and now he is a commuter. He could not rest properly, being busy with work and school. After two sleepless nights (in June), he had his first fainting fit. I took him at once to see a doctor, who prescribed him some vitamins and Calcium + D2 and advised him to run some medical tests, which had good results. In July he went on a camp with the children and there he had the second fit. When he came back, he saw some doctors in Ploiesti and they advised him to run a tomography. The result was good, but on September 4th, at five o"clock in the morning he had the third fit, while sleeping. At first, his left hand gets strained, then his entire body, he breathes with difficulty, trembles, sweats, and then he comes to his senses. All he remembers is that his left hand got strained and that he had a sensation of warmth from inside his chest. The doctors diagnosed him with generalized convulsive tonicoclonic attacks. After the third attack, the doctors prescribed him Phenobarbital - 1 tablet in the evening, before going to bed; however, I cannot sleep as I worry about him. He says that he has pains in the muscles of his arms and legs muscles and at his hip bone and back (maybe as a consequence of the treatment with Phenobarbital). If anyone has ever been confronted with a similar situation, I would like to ask him to advise me on what to do so that I could find out what is wrong with my son and how I could help him. I do not know where to start from and what to do. Now, he has put on some weight, he does not smoke any more and does not go to work (he will start his courses soon). I pray to God to make my son healthy again. I am looking forward to getting an answer from you.

"My little girl was born with gastro-esophageal reflux"
I have a two years old daughter who was born with gastro-esophageal reflux. When she was five months, the result of Ph- metry was 116 at 24h. When she was one year old, the result was 124 at 24h. During this period of time the treatments were not effective. The child had had vomiting states ever since she was born and she was administered Coordinax (cisapridum, produced by Janssen-Cilag), but with no effect. This is why my little girl neither grows nor puts on any weight. She cannot drink cow milk or Milupa Infant Milk and she could not take the maternal milk either. Please, help me, maybe there is someone who has been confronted with a similar situation and managed to cure their child. I wish I could see my little daughter playing in the yard. Thank you very much! I am looking forward to receiving an answer on the address of the magazine.

"I need a natural treatment against persistent raving disturbance"
As a consequence of a depression with panic and pursuit attacks associated with raving interpretations and explanations, severe depressive disposition and psychiatric anxiety, my husband was diagnosed with persistent raving disturbance. The psychiatrist who treats him prescribed him the medicine Rispolept (risperidonum, produced by Janssen-Cilag). He began the treatment with a 4 mg dose and after six months of treatment he takes a dose of 1 mg. His organism responded to the treatment very quickly and I can say that he feels very well. However, my husband does not believe in the effectiveness of this treatment and he is afraid that in time it could prove harmful; now he feels very well and he wants to interrupt the treatment. The psychiatrist has told him that the treatment should be undergone for at least one year without interruption if everything continues to be all right. I cannot persuade him any longer and I am afraid that if he interrupts the treatment, his condition might get worse again. I would like to ask the readers who were confronted with a similar disease to help us with natural treatment and advice. I would like to thank all of you in advance. May God bless you with good health and joy much more than you can offer! Respectfully yours,

"I need a natural treatment against post-native depression"
A terrible depression has been torturing me since I gave birth to my baby: I am emotionally unstable, I feel my head and my spine numb, I am so nervous that I burst into tears, I get angry very easily, I cannot concentrate and I cannot feel anything about anybody I know. May God give those who can advise me the power to do it! I wish you all to be in good health.
"I suffer from secondary ulcerated fibro-nodular pulmonary tuberculosis"
I am a desperate patient suffering from Tbc. I am 35 years old, I have been undergoing a treatment for two years and however I cannot get cured. The doctors have concluded that I suffer from secondary ulcerated fibro-nodular pulmonary tuberculosis at both my lungs, with a therapeutic failure. After having run a medical test in Bucharest, the doctors decided that I could get cured only if I underwent surgery. As I do not respond to medicinal treatment, my sputum is positive and the surgery can be performed only after making it negative. Do you think that you can help me with a natural treatment? I am desperate, tired and disappointed because of everything that is happening to me. I am married, I have a 13 years-old daughter, I am retired on medical grounds and I cannot bare my family. I do not smoke, I do not drink alcoholic drinks and I do not make any physical effort (which would make my condition even worse). Thank you very much! Please, help me!

"My son suffers from gynecomastitis"
I have twins who are 20 years old. One of them suffered from gynecomastitis at his left breast (swollen breast, increased mamelon with nodular formations) at the age of 17. We were advised to go to the endocrinology section, as it was a hormone disorder. After having run some echographies, the doctors detected nodules sized between 11/9 mm and 7/9 mm in the mammary mass. He underwent a treatment with Donol and at the next echography they noticed that the nodules had been completely absorbed, but the breast remained a little bit more increased. The problem is that in May, after almost two years, the disease recurred. He has painful pins and needles, his breast has swollen, some nodules have occurred. This time, nodules occurred under his arm as well. He has undergone a lot of treatments since then and the nodules sometimes increased, sometimes decreased in size. On October 2nd he ran an echography and the doctors noticed that the nodules decreased in size, reaching 5 mm. They have never decreased in size so much. The doctors prescribed him Orgasel (selenium organicum, produced by Hypocrate) - 2 tablets a day, for two months and marigold (Calendula) ointment to massage his breast. Let me also mention that he has not run any medical tests during all this time. I turn to you, as there may be someone who had a similar problem and managed to solve it. Do you think that this problem could also be caused by the fact that my son has not started his sexual life yet? I hope to receive advice or recommendations from you. Thank you very much!

"I urgently need a treatment against osseous tuberculosis"
(Answer for Simona Enache- Ploiesti, F.As nr. 526)
The fact that you had undergone a treatment with a lot of Prednisone caused a strong decalcification of your bones. I know this fact from a niece of mine who underwent the same treatment. Being from Ploiesti, I advise you to turn to Dr. Sofia Pascanu from "Pleasa" Refractory Brick Factory. I hope she will help you. I am looking forward to hearing good news from you.

My 5 month-old son had problems in gaining weight and thus he weighed only 7, 7 kg when he was 1 year and three months old (one month ago). He was so thin, that we were desperate when we gave him a bath. The doctors suspected gluten intolerance and they advised us to take him to Cluj to run a biopsy at his intestine. When running an uroculture, the doctors accidentally detected a urinary infection with Proteus bacillus. Fortunately, the gluten intolerance did not prove to be true, but meanwhile the urinary infection had reached the value of 100.000 germs/ml. I administered him Gentamicine, but the infection would not give in. We would have had to go to Cluj again so that the child could run lungs and bladder radiography but fortunately, God guided us to a homeopathic doctor who prescribed him barberry root (Berberis vulgaris) drops, Multifruct Total 1 syrup, a cure with Imunogrip - herba Echinacea purpurea juice (produced by Plantextrakt) and an auto-vaccine against Proteus bacillus - under the form of granules that are to be dissolved into water (there is also an auto-vaccine against E-coli). After the first week he put on 200 g and after one month he weighed 8, 4 kg. We continue to administer him the treatment. I advise you to go to see a homeopathic doctor with your little girl, as soon as possible, so that he could prescribe the doses that are appropriate to her age. I wish you and your daughter to be in good health! Best regards,

"My hands are chapped"
(Answer for Maria Georgescu- Giurgiu, F. As nr. 527)
1. Dear Lady, I had my soles full of chaps and they closed up (cicatrized) after I used an ointment based on all saints" wort (Hypericum perforatum): Hypericin, produced at Timisoara, which you can find in pharmacies. You should eat fresh vegetables and fruits, rich in vitamin A (grated carrots, apricots, pumpkin used for pies or marrow, melon and water melon, plums, pepper, tomatoes, cucumbers, cherries, quinces, horseradish, gooseberries, lovage, parsley, raspberry, blackberries, lemons, celery, cabbage, spinach).

2. So that you could get cured of the chaps from your hands, you should make a concentrated horse tail (Equisetum arvense) tea - you can buy it from Plafar. Use two teaspoonfuls of plant for 250 ml of water; boil it for 5-7 minutes. Make one liter of tea with 8 teaspoonfuls of plant. Cover the pot for 10 minutes and then strain the tea. When the tea has a bearable temperature, you should put both your hands into the pot and keep them there for 10-12 minutes; then wipe your hands dry with a clean towel. Prepare marigold (Calendula) ointment as it follows: render 500 g of pig lard into a clean pot, add two handfuls of fresh marigold blossom or marigold bought from Plafar; mix them well and put the pot aside after 3-5 minutes; let the pot covered until the next day. After 14-16 hours, gently, heat the mixture again over a low heat and then strain the content using a piece of lint. Pour the content into small jars, which should have a cap and should be kept in the refrigerator. The marigold ointment can be also bought from pharmacy or Plafar. In the evening, before going to bed, after having kept your hands into horse tail tea and wiped them dry, smear your hands with marigold ointment as uniformly as possible. The treatment should be undergone for about 3-4 weeks, until you get totally cured. During the treatment you should avoid introducing your hands into lime, cement, plaster, vinegar, alcohol etc. and you should not use other medicines or ointments. I wish you to be in good health!

3. Against the chops from your hands, you should use vitamin C from the lemon juice: take a lemon peel and massage the chops with it; wait for 20 minutes and then wash your hands with warm water. Smear your hands with an ointment, preferably marigold (Calendula) ointment from "Green Pharmacy". Repeat this procedure periodically. Within about 3-4 days, the chops will get away.

4. I read your letter published in the magazine and I realized that I had also suffered from the same disease for many years. The chops healed as I used the ointment Cutaden (natural combinations, produced by Armedica S.A., Targu-Mures). Smear your hands well in the evening, before going to bed. I wish you to be in good health!

"I need a remedy against chronic primitive glomerulonephritis"
(Answer for Nina- Resita, F. As nr. 527)
The natural treatment that you require may consist of some remedies that have proved to be effective in treating this disease: the birch leaves tea (Folium betulae), with diuretic and antiseptic action and the artichoke leaves tea (Folium cynarae) with diuretic action, as well as Plafar diuretic tea nr. 2 made up of a mixture of 8 medicinal plants. Some apicultural products (for example the honeycomb, which should be chewed 2-3 times a day, or drops of propolis tincture dissolved in water - both products may be bought from the beekeepers that sell apicultural products in markets) may prove to be an effective disinfectant of the urinary tracts. Moreover, your husband will have to make sure that he has an appropriate diuresis, by drinking at least 2 l of liquids a day (preferably plate water) and an appropriate diet, avoiding salt (hyposodate diet), spices, canned food and alcoholic drinks as much as possible. I wish him to be in good health!

"I need a treatment against mixed vulvitis"
(Answer for Irina, F. As nr. 527)
Dear Irina, if it is an infection with Candida Albicans, it can be treated with Stamicin (nystatinum, produced by Sicomed), prepared ovules or simple tablets, introduced in your vagina two times a day (in the morning and in the evening, before going to bed) for 12-14 days. You should keep a strict intimate hygiene wash yourself two times a day, change your underwear daily. Your underwear and all the other things (pajamas, shirt, bathrobe, towel, even bed-sheet) should be boiled for 30 minutes, from the moment when the water starts to boil, in water with detergent. Otherwise, the infection occurs again and you cannot get cured of it. The members your family may have this fungus and you may have got it because you wash your clothes together with the clothes of your family. Try to avoid wearing nylon stockings during the treatment period and throw the old ones away and buy some new ones when you finish undergoing the treatment. I am looking forward to hearing good news from you!

"Please, help me get cured of vitiligo (leucoderma)"
(Answer for Verginia Loudaini Morocco, F. As nr. 528)
1. There is a natural treatment against the disease you suffer from and this treatment is based on celery (Apium graveolens), which I assume that is grown in Morocco, too, and which has proved to be effective in some situations. You should prepare a tincture from 100 g grated or finely minced celery over which you should pour 250 g alcohol 60 0. Let it steep in a dark- colored bottle for two weeks. Massage the skin areas that are affected by vitiligo using the tincture obtained as mentioned above. I hope you will obtain the expected result, too.
Valeriu Munteanu- Timisoara
2. Vitiligo is the disease characterized by the lack of balance of the cutaneous pigmentation, which manifests by white spots of different sizes, where the hair grows white. You should avoid exposing yourself to sun, contact with chemical agents, perfumes, creams that contain preservatives. So that the disease evolution could be alleviated and stopped you should eat celery (in salads with sour cream and mayonnaise) and you should apply on your skin a steeping prepared as it follows: take 100 g of celery root and leaves and put them into a liter of water. Apply compresses soaked into this preparation and cover them with a plastic sheet. You could also use finely minced root tincture (50 g for 100 g alcohol 400, let it steep for two weeks, strain it into a dark colored jar and massage the affected areas 4-5 times a day). You should also rub the affected areas with fresh parsley leaves 3-4 times a day. I wish you to be in good health!

You can find the answer in "Formula As" nr. 466 (May28th June 4th 2001), at page 6, where an interview with Mr. Tutu Codrut is published: "The unexpected success of the treatment that we prescribe against vitiligo is a great thing. Actually, we can say that vitiligo is a 100 % curable disease". Mr. Tutu Codrut may be contacted at tel. 0745/430351. I wish you to be in good health!

"Some spots have started to appear on my body, accompanied by an intense pruritus (itching)"
(Answer for Ioana Gheorghe- Bucharest, F. As nr. 528)
The allergic states with intense pruritus are caused by intestinal parasites of Oriental origin, from the dried and fresh exotic fruit. I advise you to run the coproparasitology test for10 days, as it could point out the possible parasites. As a natural treatment, I advise you to drink tea made of heartsease (Viola tricolor), lavender (Flores Lavandula), wild camomille (Flores chamomillae), ½ teaspoonful of mustard grains. Put a spoonful of this mixture for 500 ml of water and let it brew for 5 minutes. Drink three mugs of this tea every day, before the meals; the tea should not be sweetened or it should be sweetened with honey. As a local treatment, you should smear the affected area with Cao-Sao Chinese cream. So that you could avoid the edemas, you will have to keep a mainly vegetal diet, without salt. As you say, you are a medical worker and you know what is permitted and what is not indicated. I suffered of the same symptoms for 20 years and I got cured of the allergy by undergoing - at the same time - a treatment with antihistamics which had been prescribed by the doctor. You could also massage the red spots areas and the swollen ones with concentrated mugwort tea. As an internal treatment, you should drink a bitter tea, preferably made of common celandine (Chelidonum majus) - for the biliary bladder draining-; you should drink it a quarter an hour before the meal. Make an infusion using ½ teaspoonful of dried plant for 250 ml of water. I advise you to be patient and I wish you to be in good health!

"How could chronic diarrhoea and scabs be cured?"
(Answer for Marioara Feier, F. As nr. 533)
So that you can get cured of the scabs, I advise you to powder your wounds with argil powder many times a day. You can also use 20 % propolis tincture, but it burns at first. I advise you to get the following plants against chronic diarrhoea: shepherd"s wild thymel (Thymus ser), garden savory (Satureia hortensis), horse tail (Equisetum arvense), silverweed (Potentilla anserina), mulberry tree (Morus Alba), red bird"s eye (Geranium robertianum), milfoil (Achillea millefolium), shepherd"s purse (Capsella bursa pastoris), marigold (Calendula), peppermint (Mentha piperita) and mugwort (Artemisia Absintium). Make a mixture of equal parts of these plants and make an infusion from a teaspoonful of plant at a mug of boiling water. Add a teaspoonful of argil powder at every glass of tea. Drink a mug of tea three times a day before the meal. Diet: during the first 24 hours you should drink only rice juice; the second day you should add boiled rice and grated apples. The third day you should eat toast, fresh cream cheese, boiled carrots and chicken. For two weeks, the patient should not eat fats, fat meat, nuts, sweets, hot spices. He should eat fresh fruit and vegetables every day: carrot, cabbage, peeled off apples, quinces, oranges, lemons. I wish you to be in good health!

"My husband suffers from varicella Zoster on the trigeminal nerve"
(Answer for Tatiana Chirozi- Iasi, F. As nr. 535)
Among the patients who turn to me so that they could be cured of various diseases, I had one who suffered from trigeminal neuralgia which he had as a consequence of a dental extraction 5 years ago. The pain ceased as a result of undergoing the polarized light treatment with the "Bioptron" device (produced by Zepter). The treatment should be undergone for a period of 30-50 days, a 4 minutes session every day. I would like to thank Mrs. Sanziana Pop and the entire editorial staff who do a lot of great things to help those who suffer from incurable diseases and the poor. "Formula As" is a real balm for all of us. I wish you a Happy New Year and to have as many issues as possible!
