Fikki (7 yrs), Jl. Media Blok XX No. 19 Kompl. Harapan Baru, Taman Bunga, Suka Tani-Cimanggis, Depok
Seeing him, people would never believe that Fikki, our only child, so active and lively, had just recovered from a disease that nearly caused us to loose hope. They would not believe that our son not so long ago ceased the “tradition” of going in and out of hospitals and visiting doctors and paranormals, after three years of struggling with a deathly disease. They would never suspect him at this young age to have endured such a bitter experience.
It all began when Fikki was three years old. My husband , Fikki and I were holidaying at Pulau Bidadari, the Thousand Islands. We ate a lot of seafood. Fikki enjoyed the food very much. Upon our return from the holiday, we saw that Fikki’s face was swelling. We though he was allergic to seafood. We took him to see a doctor who suggested a laboratory test. The doctor explained the result to us.
He told us that the lab result indicated a kidney disorder, characterized by protein crystals in Fikki’s urine. The doctor said that he would give Fikki a medicine to protect his kidneys, however, if a relapse were to occur within 3 months time, it would mean that our child is suffering from nefrotic syndrome. Laymen called it kidney leak disease. Medically, the doctor further said, the causative agent is still a mystery.
We were shocked. “Allah, why must we experience this painful test? Can our child ever get well again?” we asked.
Fikki was hospitalized for 10 days and then allowed to go home attended by a number of very strict diet rules. Fikki now had to be held back from consuming his favorite foods.
Supporting him, we also avoided these foods like Fikki.
After three months, Fikki was stricken by the same condition like when we returned from Pulau Bidadari. He was gaining weight, but he did not look healthy. He also suffered from renal failure. The doctor referred us to a kidney specialist at RSCM who gave us medicine for Fikki to take. We were shocked when the doctor mentioned some of the side effects that might occur, namely losing hair, porotic bones and asthma.
But what can we do? This is the only medicine that may control his kidneys.
We also went to see alternative medical practitioners, those whose ways did stand to reason and even those whose ways did not. We even practiced a custom that is common to Javanese in order to get rid of a disease, namely that Fikki must be sold and bought back by his own mother at a price of Rp. 50,000.
Besides taking his medicine disciplinary, Fikki must go see the doctor monthly for control and laboratory tests to prevent an increase in urine protein. Still, after three years of therapy, his condition was not like that of other healthy children. He was sick frequently. His teachers at school came to know very well that Fikki must be sick when he did not attend school.
Fikki suffered even more when the side effects of the drug appeared. He got affected by asthma and had to take some more drugs. Each day, he must consume no less than 8 tablets.
“Mama, Fikki is tired of taking medicines every day” he started complaining.
“Fikki, the doctor says you may not stop taking these medicines yet until you no longer suffer a relapse”, I said coaxing him.
Fikki’s doctor told us that Fikki should not cease taking his medicine until his urine protein become negative. Laboratory tests indicated that it was still positive.Very discouraging indeed.
At the end of the year 2001, my sister Ida introduced me to the mahkota dewa product. She and her family had bought and consumed ibu Ning Harmanto’s concoction, and are feeling fit. I then decided to follow her example, and bought the Instant Super Made concoction.
Ida told me about the positive result showed by her child who was also consuming the mahkota dewa concoction. I thought to try to give it to Fikki, who knows, the result may be positive. At first, Fikki did not want it because of the spicy taste. I coaxed him, and he finally took it, spoonful by spoonful. When he did not feel like taking it, I would tell him that “it is alright if he does not want to drink it, but then he may not eat his meals as well”.
I watched him carefully for fear of any negative reaction. Thank God, Fikki was healthy. Yet there was no change in the laboratory result, his urine protein remained
2 positive. I then started reducing the doctor’s medicine one by one each month. But I kept taking him to the doctor for control. Since December 2002, I completely stopped the doctor’s medicine. Thank God, my child was becoming healthier and livelier. I did not expect that a state-of-the-art medicine with alarming negative side effects could be so positively substituted by the simple Instant Made Super concoction.
