"I would like to learn more about hemophilia"
I was diagnosed with hemophilia A - severe form- when I was one year and four months old. I am 40 now and I would like to learn more about this serious disease. It would be very helpful both to me and to the others who suffer from this disease (which are not very many in our country). I would like to find out more information about medicinal, natural or other kinds of treatments, and also if there is any Romanian or foreign association of people suffering from hemophilia and how it could help us. With consideration,

"Please, help me save my brother"s life!"
My brother is in a desperate situation. Now, he is hospitalized and the diagnosis determined by the doctors after he underwent surgery terrified us. He underwent a surgery of gastric neoplasm, but the doctors could not remove the tumor. They would have had to surgically remove my brother"s stomach and esophagus, which would have led to his death while in the surgery. The doctors also detected metastases on his liver. Now, he is at the intensive care unit; the doctors implanted him a tube which should take over the functions of his stomach and esophagus. Please, if you know of any natural treatment that could be administered to him at once, contact us as soon as possible. May God bless you!

"My wife suffers from carotid atheromatosis"
My 59 years old wife suffers from right carotid atheromatosis and post-stroke status with left hemi paresis. She underwent a medicinal treatment that was not effective. Could anyone help us with a natural treatment? She cannot walk because of the pains in her knees and she cannot use her arms because of the pains in her shoulders and elbows. This is why we would like to ask the readers of your magazine who suffered from this disease to help us through the intermediary of the magazine. Maybe there is a long recovery sanatorium, with specialized staff that should assist her, as she can move only with a wheelchair. Thank you in advance.

"How could I get cured of uveitis?"
I have had problems because of an eye disease uveitis- for almost three years. I went to several hospitals, but the results are relative, as, after a two weeks treatment with Prednisone- drops, this disease recurs. Some doctors say that knee arthrosis could be the cause of the uveitis recurrence. If you suffered from this disease and you managed to treat it, please, let me know what treatment you underwent. With a lot of gratitude,

"I suffer from sight disorders in autumn and winter"
I have had some sight disorders for a few years (now I am 19 years old) and they manifest especially in autumn and in winter (when the weather is raw). At first, I cannot see a small part of an object, and then the spot gradually turns into some colored lines that move in front of my eyes. After 30-40 minutes, my sight comes to normal again, but I have some terrible headaches, especially in the sinuses area. I also run a tomography, but the doctors detected only a nasal septum deviation. Let me also mention that I suffer from rhinitis and I almost always have my snuffles. I would like to add that the sight disorders occur especially after I have bent and whenever I catch a cold. I would also like to know how a very unaesthetic gingivitis could be treated. Any piece of information or of advice would be helpful! Thank you in advance and I wish you, dear readers, to be in good health!

"My colleague suffers from diabetes mellitus, neuropathy and diabetic arteriopathy"
I write you on behalf of my colleague, C.L, who would like to remain anonymous. We have been colleagues for almost 20 years and he is a very special person. He has been suffering from diabetes mellitus type Ii, neuropathy and diabetic arteriopathy for about 10 years, but the disease has got acute during the last five years. He has seen several doctors and he has undergone a lot of treatments, but all with no effect: he still feels very bad. He has very short periods of time when he feels better, but when the attacks occur, he seems to be short of air and he has a collapsing sensation. Now, he undergoes a treatment with Gerovital (combinations: procaine hydrochlorate, benzoic acid, produced by Sicomed S.A.) injectable and he can feel a slight alleviation. My colleague is 52 years old and I would be very glad if you could help him. With your help we may witness a miracle. The doctors told him that he could never get cured, as the disease has a nervous nature. If you have ever been confronted with a similar disease, please, tell us how you managed to get cured. Thank you very much!

"I suffer from carcinoid syndrome"
I am 23 years old and I suffer from a rare disease, which cannot be diagnosed by means of laboratory tests in Romania. I would like to inform you about my situation, hoping that there are some other people, patients or doctors, who have been confronted with a similar situation and who could help me. The disease is called carcinoid syndrome and, most frequently, it manifests by gastrointestinal tumors, but they could also occur at the level of the lungs, pancreas, biliary tracts, ovaries and testicles, organs that secrete different substances in the organism (serotonin, bradykinin, histamine, prostaglandin, catecholamine, dopamine, and peptides). The disease manifests by attacks. Here is how it manifests in my case: after I eat, my blood pressure gets higher and I feel that my entire blood circulation is disturbed, I have heart problems, the arteries from my hands and legs get swollen, I have the sensation that my lung and viscera get empty. At the Endocrinology Institute in Bucharest you may run medical tests, which can only determine the quantity of serotonin, noradrenalin, and adrenalin, but these tests are not relevant. This is my case, too, because the medicines that block the dopamine or act upon the receivers are the only ones that may reduce these disorders. Unfortunately, the dopamine cannot be dosed at the Institute. In my case, the abnormal secretion is localized in the biliary bladder (my intestines, stomach, pancreas and lungs are normal). The problem is that the surgeons whom I have seen refuse to operate me and the medicines for dopamine are not well tolerated because of their sedative effect. Could you help me with a piece of advice or a natural treatment? Thank you very much!

"My aunt suffers from rheumatoid poly-arthritis"
My 75 years old aunt has been terribly suffering for 10 years from Ii nd degree rheumatoid poly-arthritis localized at her knee. The treatment prescribed to her until June 2001 consisted in Diclofenac (tablets and ointment) and Diprofos- infiltrations at her knee. After this, she took the homeopathic medicine Traumeel (combinations: Belladonna, Arnica Montana radix, Aconitum napellus, Chamomilla, etc. - produced by Heel Biotherapeutics) - infiltrations, too. This treatment should be undergone every three months; it is very expensive (about 3 millions lei one cure) and alleviates her pains for only two-three weeks. I would like to ask those who know a more effective treatment or any medical center where better results could be obtained, to answer me through the intermediary of the magazine. Thank you very much!

"My mother was diagnosed with bladder cancer"
(Answer for Mirela Blajin, F.As nr. 529)
My grandfather had the same diagnosis, had the tumor surgically removed, but unfortunately the disease recurred. The doctors prescribed him a treatment with cytostatics and chemotherapy, which he interrupted because of his weak organism and of the side effects (haematuria, edemas, high blood pressure and cephalalgia). I found out in "Formula As" about the existence of "Bioreflex" Consulting Room from Sos. Mihai Bravu nr. 303, bl. 18 A, sc. B, apt. 45, tel. 021/3245114 (interphone 45). We went there for a medical consultation and a possible treatment. Here we found out that the chance of getting cured of cancer, even in an advanced stage of the disease, may grow with the help of the modern therapeutic means, combined with the natural therapy ones. The treatment with medicinal plants and the natural diet, in which the fruits, seeds and vegetables play an important part, should be considered complementary therapies, which may lead to the maintenance and often, to the fortification of the vital functions of the organism. The therapists from "Bioreflex" gave my grandfather the hope of getting cured, which actually happened. Here is the treatment that he underwent: boil 1 kg of parsley root into 2 liters of water until you get half of the initial quantity and drink the obtained tea every day, for one month. Take a 10 day break and then repeat the cure. Cataplasms applied on the affected area for three hours in the evening or let until the next morning, packs with quano honey (a preparation brought from Tibet, which was prescribed to him at "Bioreflex" Consulting Room). At the same time, he underwent a treatment with bio-energy and natural treatments recommended by the therapist of the Consulting Room. My grandfather"s condition visibly improved and he regained his confidence that he will get cured. We advise you to resort to the "Bioreflex" Consulting room, hoping that they could help you, too. I wish you to be in good health!

"A terrible trouble may meet me: leg amputation"
(Answer for Alexandru Casa- loc. Bod -Sat, Jud. Brasov, F. As nr. 529)
1. Your present situation is caused by the heart tiredness, blood vessels narrowing and blood thickening. These causes should be eliminated at once by taking medicines, keeping a diet and drinking teas. This means that you should diminish or eliminate the aggravating factors of your suffering: Give up smoking at once (if you smoke) and drinking alcohol (only tinctures, 30-50 drops into water and wine- at most 150-200 ml- natural, from the countryside, fermented with plants or mixed with powders, half an hour before the meal, not after it!). Replace coffee with chicory (Cichorium) and savory (Satureia hortensis) tea. Meat - as rarely and little as possible, boiled or grilled, but you should eat it as it is, without garnish. Replace sugar with sweet fruit or with honey, unless you suffer from diabetes. Give up completely eating white bread and replace it with boiled potatoes, wheat husk, ground and moistened wheat, germinated wheat. Eliminate salt as there is salt in every food, including honey; you may use little salt, but it should be coarse or without sodium. Vinegar- made of apples and honey, which you should buy from Apicola. You should not give up taking medicines unless your condition improves; also, you should take up this diet gradually, not suddenly! Go and see your doctor, but I believe that you could use the medicine Liv 52 (plants: Capparis spinosa, Cichorium intybus, Solanum nigrum, etc- produced by Himalaya Drug Co Bangalore) against liver diseases, Variterp (plants: Aesculus hipocastanum triterpenic extract + rutin + hamamelis extract, produced by "Antibiotice" S.A. Iasi) for veins, Enterolactil (produced by Bactolact) or Salazopyrin (sulfasalazinum, produced by Pharmacia & Upjohn) against constipation. Every day you should drink 2 liters of diuretic tea from Plafar or tea made from silk corn, cherries stalk and all saints" wort (Hypericum perforatum), in 10 day cures. Let me suggest you a more rapid way of solving your feet problem: hot feet bath (38-39 0C), 12 hours on end (change the water to keep the temperature high), with brine cabbage juice. Introduce your legs up to your knees into an adequate pot containing the hot solution. The blocked blood will withdraw and will circulate normally again. You need someone to help you. One bath of this kind is enough! You may practice the gymnastics Bürger: lied on the bed keep your feet at 45-60 0, until your feet become white, 1-2 minutes, then let them on the edge of the bed until they turn to the normal color again (1-2 minutes), and finally keep them horizontally for 4-5 minutes. You should repeat these movements in the morning and in the evening for 5-10 times, until you regulate the blood circulation. This diet is applicable to many diseases those who want to keep it will have a lot of benefits. The fast and the prayers will be of great help, as only God can cure! For further details you may to write me or call me.
Dumitru Meche - str. Milcov, bl. B19, apt. 15, Craiova, Jud. Dolj, cod 1100, tel. 0251/145487 2. I would like to recommend Mr. Alexandru four alternative methods of healing that are effective against all kinds of diseases: keeping the healing total fast, Oshawa diet, exclusively fresh food (milk products that are not degraded by boiling or pasteurization, cereals, raw vegetables and fruit), and the urine therapy. I resorted to other healing methods than the allopathic ones because of an eye disease (uveitis) I had been suffering from for a few years and that kept on recurring. I was hospitalized many times and every time I was discharged alleviated, but without being confident that the disease would not recur. When I was hospitalized, I underwent a treatment with strong antibiotics with general effect, as the doctors did not manage to detect the causes of the disease. Being exasperated and weakened because of so many hospitalizations, frightened by the seriousness of the disease that endangered my sight, I started to inquire about alternative healing methods. One year ago, I stopped taking medicines, smoking and drinking alcohol, then I cleaned my organism (the blood) of toxins by keeping a total fast (the longest one was of six days) and Oshawa diet; I also started keeping a diet based on fresh food (I still keep this diet). In the meantime, I have also detected the cause of the disease: sinusitis that I treated with inhalations and other natural methods. I can say that I have not had major health problems; I treated those that occurred (colds, otitis) using natural methods. I read about the healing fast and the fresh food diet in the book "The miracle of Fresh Food" by Ernst Günter and about the Oshawa diet and the urine therapy in some newspaper articles. I advise you to get informed about these methods and to try them, as you will only benefit from it. I wish you speedy recovery!
Adrian Hanes - str. Horea, bl. 1, sc. 6, apt. 52, Petrosani, Jud. Hunedoara, cod 2675 3. Dear Sir, you should not despair because of your disease - trombophlebitis of the inferior limbs. From my experience, as a result of the treatment that I recommended to a patient with the same symptoms (his foot was darkened up to his ankle and even above it, he had varicose veins and trombophlebitis and the prescribed allopathic medicines were not effective), they disappeared. The treatment consists of cabbage leaves applications. After one month, the teguments color became normal and the varicose veins withdrew almost completely. This treatment is very simple and it is extremely cheap. Buy a rather big cabbage, with green leaves. Take 3-4 leaves, cut the thick nervures and squeeze the leaves with the help of a wooden rolling pin or a glass, so that the juice could be extracted from them. Apply them with the wet side on the affected area, one leaf upon the other, cover them with a piece of cotton and fasten them with a bandage which should not press your leg. Keep them all night long and if irritation occurs, remove them, wash the area with an infusion made up of equal parts of marigold (Calendula) and horse tail (Equisetum arvense); then smear the area with all saints" wort (Hypericum perforatum) ointment in a layer that should not be thicker than a knife edge, and then apply a piece of linen on the ointment layer, fasten it well without pressing it, just like you have done with the cabbage leaves. During the night you should apply other cabbage leaves, in the same way, if the tegumentary irrigation has been reduced. After this, throw the used cabbage leaves away and apply others during the next nights. In the daytime you should drink an infusion made of a mixture of marigold (Calendula) and horse tail (Equisetum arvense) - one teaspoonful of plants that have been soaked into 250 ml of boiling water). You should also drink 1-2 glasses of fresh cabbage juice every day. Undergo this treatment for one month and, if it is necessary, repeat it after a short break. I wish you speedy recovery!

"My mother suffers from acute abdominal porphyria"

"My husband suffers from cerebral and osseous metastasis"
(Answer for Sultana Popescu- Bucharest, F. As nr. 537)
Curing the disease your husband suffers from depends on the stage of the disease, on the food he eats and also on his attitude regarding the natural treatment. Unless the entire organism is affected, he has chances to get cured if he uses medicinal plants such as: meadow saffron (Colchicum autumnale), horse tail (Equisetum arvense), milfoil (Achillea millefolium), marigold (Calendula), sweet calamus (Acorus calamus), black poplar (Populus nigra), common celandine (Chelidonum majus), mistletoe (Viscum album) and especially hellebore (Helleborus purpurescens), which Paracelsus used to call "long life elixir", as it cleans the blood and eliminates the tumors from the body. Mix the above-mentioned plants in equal parts (except for meadow saffron and hellebore, which are toxic). Make an infusion from two teaspoonfuls of the above-mentioned mixture for 250 ml of boiling water. Sweeten it with honey and drink 3 mugs a day, in more portions. Eliminate from your food sugar (use honey instead of it), vinegar (replace it with lemon juice), fats (replace them with olive oil or cold pressed sun flower oil), pork, canned food, industrial juices, alcohol. The food should be as little thermically processed as possible. Eat as many fresh fruit and vegetables, drink beetroot, carrots and parsley juice every day - at least 100 ml a day, before every meal. Eat 2 teaspoonful of pollen every day, three times a day, before the meals. I wish you to be in good health!

"How could an epithelioma be naturally treated?"
(Answer for Floarea Salagean- Oradea, F. As nr. 537)
Your suffering could come to an end within a few days if you tampon the epithelioma (beauty spots) with fresh (orange) juice made of common celandine (Chelidonum majus) two - three times a day. You can find green common celandine even during the winter, under the snow. The crust of the epithelioma will get dried and it will fall. You could also try a treatment with bee glue tincture, which you should use to smear the affected area three- four times a day. I wish you to be in good health!

"I underwent a surgery of anal fissure and the wound does not cicatrize"
(Answer for Dan Cleopatra- Bucharest, F. As nr. 535)
Dear Lady, I can imagine what terrible suffering you are confronted with and I would like to help you get rid of it. So that your wound could heal and cicatrize I advise you to take seat baths with birthwort herb (Aristolochia sp.), milfoil (Achillea millefolium) and marigold (Calendula). The bath should last for 20 minutes and then you should wipe yourself with a towel and smear the affected area with marigold and birthwort herb ointment. Then you should take 2-3 green leaves of common celandine (Chelidonum majus), wash them and introduce them into the anal orifice where you should keep them all night long. Mix the following plants: milfoil, artichoke (Cynara Scolymus), anise (Pimpinella anisum), horse tail (Equisetum arvense), way thorn (Rhamnus frangula), walnut leaves (Juglams regia), dandelion (Taraxacum officinale), black poplar buds (Populus nigra), all saints" wort (Hypericum perforatum) and stinging nettle (Urtica dioica). Make an infusion from one teaspoonful of minced plants for one mug of boiling water. Let the pot covered for 5 minutes, strain the mixture and sweeten it with honey. Put one teaspoonful of argil into every mug of water in the evening for the next morning, in the morning for noon and at noon for the evening. Stir the argil using a wooden stick and drink the tea thick. The remaining sediments should be thrown away. If you suffer from constipation as well, add two spoonfuls of wheat husk into the evening tea. You should also pray with all your heart and keep your faith. I wish you to be in good health!
