"My husband suffers from an allergy"
I am one of the many readers of your magazine, from abroad. I cannot tell you how many times I cried, I was glad or I got sad reading the columns of the magazine. The reason for which I have decided to write you now is my complete trust in the natural remedies. My husband has been suffering from an allergy for about 20 years; the disease manifests by edemas on his entire body. He has run a lot of medical tests, but the doctors have not detected the allergen yet. The problem is that these edemas have occurred more and more often (at every two-three days) since we moved to Usa. He takes some tablets Zyrtec (cetirizine hydrochloride, produced by Pfizer) which are effective, but, as far as I know, these anti- allergic tablets weaken the immunity of the body. I am interested in a natural treatment, teas or preparations that should alleviate this allergy. Thank you in advance!

"I am confronted with an excessive perspiration"
I am 25 years old and I am confronted with a very unpleasant problem: perspiration. I excessively sweat, but only in the underarm area, which is very troublesome to me, especially when I want to wear white clothes, which get immediately stained. I have tried the trick with the bicarbonate, but with no result. I have tried all the cosmetic and pharmaceutical products available on the Canadian market, all with no effect. Sometimes I do not make any effort and however I sweat. Please, recommend me a natural remedy. Thank you very much! I wish this great magazine to have a long existence!

"My mother suffers from unoperative submandibular tumor"
Four years ago my 64 year old mother was detected a stage Iii B mammary cancer and she had her left breast surgically removed. She underwent a treatment with cytostatics for six months; one year ago, the tumor recurred in the submandibular area (under the ear). The presumptive diagnosis was metastasis tumor, being unoperative. Has anyone been confronted with a similar situation? Please, help us!

"My daughter suffers from hypermetropic astigmatism"
My 15 year old daughter suffers from hypermetropic astigmatism at her left eye and slight hypermetropia at her right eye. The problem would not be so serious if she had the same diopters at her both eyes or if the size of the diopters were close, but the diopter of her left eye is +5-2.75 and the one of her right eye is +1. Does anybody know a natural remedy or a doctor who practices the Chinese medicine and could help us? Thank you in advance!

"How could an epithelioma be naturally treated?"
About three years ago, a sort of wart occurred in the right side of my forehead and it started to bleed. It makes a crust that is removed whenever it is simply touched and the wound suppurates. The surgeon has told me that it is an epithelioma that should be operated, otherwise complications may occur. As I want to avoid undergoing surgery, I would like to ask the readers of this great magazine to help me with a natural treatment. Best regards,

"I have terrible pains in my hands, legs and spine"
I am 53 years old but, because of the pains in my legs, spine and hands, when I get out of the bed, I walk as if I were 79-80 years old. In March, my hands started to get swollen, I have pains during the night and I cannot rest. Then, my fingers started to get numb and their joints got swollen. I have undergone many treatments prescribed by the family doctor (against circulation, rheumatic disease), but the pains did not cease. I am desperate; I do not enjoy life anymore. If you know of any natural treatment against my suffering, please, help me. May God bless you!

"I have two tumors under my tongue and one on my bone"
I have had two tumors under my tongue for three years; one is the size of a pea grain and the other one is smaller. These tumors have already turned into metastasis. I have a tumor the size of a peanut under my right knee, on the bone. It has recurred four times. I have seen many oncologists and they all advised me to undergo a surgery. I did not want that. I am given injections with mistletoe (Viscum Album); I drink teas made from birthwort herb (Aristolochia sp.), milfoil (Achillea millefolium), horse tail (Equisetum arvense), stinging nettle (Urtica dioica) and marigold (Calendula), but the tumors have not withdrawn. Please, recommend me an effective treatment. Thank you very much!

"My mother"s feet are swollen and she has suffocation attacks"
My 67 year old mother underwent a surgery of uterine fibroma (with total hysterectomy) 20 years ago. Since then her condition got worse and worse every year. The most serious problems are because of her feet, which get swollen. Her foot and her ankle are so swollen, that she cannot even put on her slippers. She has difficulties walking and she has not left her house for 15 years. We cannot alleviate her suffering, even though she underwent the treatment prescribed by the family doctor. Some time ago, the swellings used to go down during the night, but now they are swollen all the time. My mother has also heart problems and she undergoes a treatment against them; however she has had suffocation attacks (acute lack of air) for two years. She has taken Miofilin, but with no effect. Please, help my mother walk and get rid of this torment. Thank you in advance!

"My father cannot breathe because of the allergic rhinitis"
My 73 year old father suffers from allergic rhinitis. He has undergone five polyp surgeries but the polyps still recur. He has been dependent on Cortisone, Diprophos for 15 years, and now he needs 1 ampoule a month. Otherwise, he has the snuffles and he can breathe only on his mouth. He has also tried some desensitization, but with no result. The problem is that his organism has not responded to the treatment since the last Diprophos ampoule, in August, and his nose got cleaned only a little and only in the daytime. What should we do? We have heard that, in Bucharest, one can undergo a polyp laser surgery. Thus, my father could still hope for alleviation, but we do not know where to go and who to see. If you know of a natural treatment against his disease or one that should help him get rid of Cortisone, please, help me as soon as possible. My father is a strong and energetic man, he has never drunk alcohol and he has never smoked. I wish he could still enjoy life!

"How could I get rid of an obsessive-phobic disorder?"
(Answer for Mirela, F.As nr.509)
Reading in the "Formula As" magazine about the problems of psychic nature that have been more and more frequent, I think that many suffering people do not know that they can be helped by the psycho-therapy. Unfortunately, a lot of people associate the psycho-therapy with the psychiatric treatment and this one with serious psychic problems that only the insane people have. This is a false opinion! The psycho-therapy is used for the behavior optimization, in parallel with the healing or alleviating of some psychic problems. The cognitive-behavioral psycho-therapy can help you know yourself better and identify the automatic negative thoughts and the dysfunctional cognitive schemes that you have learnt in time and educationally strengthened. The modification of these cognitive schemes with the help of which we could find explanations for the social and behavioral interactions and the surrounding world diminish and even heal the bulimia, the depressive, anxious, obsessive-compulsive disorders, phobias, panic attacks etc. You should confidently resort to a psycho-therapist (psychologist or psychiatrist) of cognitive-behavioral orientation. For further details or psycho-therapy, you can contact me at the Policlinica cu Plata nr. 2 - Sos. Pantelimon no. 292, Bucharest, tel. 021/2553915 or at the e-mail address: Mihaela.firstname.lastname@example.org.

"How could stomach cancer be treated?"
(Answer for Magdalina Moldovan- Mangalia, Jud. Constanta, F.As nr. 523)
Dear lady, the research has shown that food is the main cause of stomach cancer. Using too much salt generates the bacteria development in your stomach. Another factor is connected to the frequent eating of baked food and salted canned food. Another cause that has been researched is the lack of certain vitamins that have a protective role against cancer: vitamin A (it inhibits the formation of the free radicals that have an important role in malignant tumors occurrence), vitamin C and vitamin E (they have anti-oxidant action and protect the cells from degenerative exchanges). In this situation, you should increase the quantities of fresh fruit and vegetables that you eat and you should also supplement your food with natural alimentary integrators. You could try the natural food eating program made in Usa, which contains the main anti-oxidants: caroteoid, flavonoid, cruciferous. I wish you to be in good health!

"How can I get rid of being dependent on Bixtonim?"
(Answer for Liviu Andronache- Iasi, F.As nr. 523)
I have also experienced from this unpleasant sensation of having the snuffles. I am retired, I was a medical worker and I write you from my own experience. The Orl doctor advised me to take a tablet of Romergan in the evening (at 6 p.m.), for 3-5 days. Do not take too much of this medicine! You will sleep better and the nose will get cleaned. You should also pour lemon drops in your nose (it is rather unpleasant, but it will clean your nose). You should make lemonade from 1-2 lemons and drink it every day; your problem will be solved in a few days. I wish you to be in good health!

"My husband was diagnosed with hypospermia"
(Answer for Mariana R. - Carei, F.As nr. 527)
Dear Mrs. Mariana, hypospermia can be caused by a lack of energy of the spermatozoids. From different reasons, the spermatozoids of many men have the structure and the functions changed, which reduces the chance of having children. Coenzyme Q 10 controls the cellular energy generation, is a strong anti-oxidant, protecting the cellular membrane from the oxidative reactions (including at the level of the spermatozoids), thus increasing the masculine fertility. There are studies according to which if you administer coenzyme Q10 to the men with spermatozoids having the structure and functions changed, you will decrease the number of immobile or abnormal spermatozoids, thus increasing their mobility and viability. I advise your husband to use Super-Bio Quinona Q 10, which contains 30 mg Coenzyme Q 10/ tablet.

"My mother suffers from both legs gonarthrosis"
(Answer for Doina Georgescu- Bucharest, F.As nr. 527)
I was also confronted with the same suffering. I was diagnosed with coxarthrosis and discopathy and I was immediately hospitalized as I was bed ridden. During the hospitalization period, I underwent a lot of treatments, but without the expected effect. Thanks to the great magazine "Formula As", I found out about the "Revital" Consulting Room. After having taken 12 reflex-therapy sessions, I managed to get rid of the pains in the lombar and dorsal region and my mobility was improved. Your suffering - gonarthrosis or the hip pains (coxarthrosis) - can be greatly alleviated by soles massage. Let me also mention that, because of my bad condition, I had to use a walking stick and now, after the reflex-therapy sessions, I do not need it any more. At the "Revital" Consulting Room I met a lot of patients with different diagnoses: arthrosis, rheumatism, hepatic-biliary disorders, insomnias, migraines, dizziness, spondylosis, panic attacks, depression and anxiety, and after 15-20 sessions of soles massages, they seemed to be reborn. I advise you to confidently go to this consulting room, where you will be prescribed the adequate natural treatment. Among other remedies, the following can be also used: Coenzyme Q 10, Bio-Selenium + Zinc, Royal Tonic Geriatric, Antiartritic, Vitaal Energy, alternatively. Plants baths are also recommended. The general or partial massage is also benefic, in parallel with the reflex-therapy. I wish you to be in good health!

"I suffer from intern thrombosed piles"
(Answer for Elena Bejan- Craiova, F.As nr. 531)
I advise you to undergo a treatment that, even if it is not natural, has helped me get rid of the piles. It is called Variterp ointment (plants: Aesculus hipocastanum triterpenic extract + rutin+ hamamelis extract produced by "Antibiotice" S.A. Iasi), a cheap Romanian medicine, produced by "Antibiotice" S.A. Iasi. You should act as follows: after every stool you should do your local hygiene with soap and warm water, then you should take out 1-2 cm of ointment from the tube, introduce the ointment into the anus with your middle finger (using a sterile rubber glove), turning it left-right in order to completely smear the internal area. You should repeat the procedure every day, for 3-4 weeks. I got rid of the piles in three weeks" time and I have not had bleedings for two years. If you cannot find Variterp, you should buy Nepathrombin - ointment, which has almost the same properties. Anyway, during the treatment period and after undergoing it, give up eating spices (chilly, pepper, paprika etc.), spiced food, salami and sausages, drinking alcoholic drinks and if you smoke, you should give it up right away, as the cigarette smoke contains numerous irritating substances that reach the rectal area through blood, congesting it and provoking bleedings. You should also eat food that contains cellulose, as it regulates the intestinal transit: fresh fruit and vegetables salad (white or red, fresh or pickled cabbage, endives Cichorium endivia -, green salad, and radish), food with green or bean, fruit (apples, grapes, plums, nuts). If you do not tolerate the above-mentioned food from different causes (gall, liver, gastric hyperacidity), I recommend you something simple and at hand: wheat husk. You should boil two-three spoonfuls of wheat husk in about 300 ml (a mug) of water (to destroy the possible bacteria) for 5-6 minutes. Then, you should sweeten the liquid and drink it as such, or strain it and pour a glass of milk over the remaining husk; drink it as such or sweetened, better with honey. I wish you a speedy recovery!

"I have been permanently very agitated and nervous since I was 12 years old"
(Answer for Robert- Tulcea, F.As nr. 531)
After the symptomatology briefly described by you, from which is obvious the fact that you have not run medical tests regarding your states, it seems that you suffer from hyperthyroidism: this might be the cause of your states of anxiety, nervousness, insomnia, discomfort, weak food assimilation, fatigability. You should contact an endocrinologist from Tulcea as soon as possible, as well as a neuro-psychiatrist (as hyperthyroidism represents a disorder of the thyroid gland that affects both the nervous system and the heart and it should be treated together by the endocrinologist, psychiatrist and cardiologist). You should also run a coproparasitology test, in order to see whether you have an associated lambliasis, too, that may manifest by losing weight.

"My wife has oscillating blood pressure"
(Answer for Zoltan Hegedus- Nürnberg, F.As nr. 533)
Dear Mr. Zoltan, your wife"s oscillating blood pressure can be regulated with the help of the fat acids Omega 3. They are turned by the organism into extremely active substances, called eikosanoids that are able to reduce the fats concentration from blood (triglycerides), by fluidizing it, reducing the atherosclerosis risk, dilating the blood vessels, thus playing an important part in preventing the cardiovascular and biliary disorders. I recommend her a balanced diet, rich in fresh fruit and vegetables. She should avoid the animal fats (butter, grease, cream, fat meat, especially pork) and canned and salted food. She should eat big quantities different types of fish (herring, mackerel, salmon). I would also like to recommend her to use the nutritive supplement Bio-Marin Plus, which contains concentrated fish oil, vitamin B12 and folic acid, combination that decreases the blood pressure and protects the heart and the cardiovascular system.

"Our son is confronted with a permanent nausea"
(Answer for Victoria B. Bucharest, F.As nr. 536)
Your son"s problems can be tackled from the point of view of the Chinese traditional medicine that uses its own healing resources, without using any foreign body. The electro puncture is one of the five methods of stimulating the organism energetic points. There are treatment schemes for your son"s both disorders. You can turn to an acupuncture stimulator or you can use the Electro stimulator produced by the "Senerg"- Applied Research from Cluj- Napoca. As far as the inappetence is concerned, let me tell you that the results are verified by me in 3 situations, 2 of them referring to old persons who managed to regain their appetite after 3, respectively 5 sessions. This situation has lasted for more than one year.
