Posted on Fri, 24 Apr 2015
Question: Good Afternoon Dr. XXXXXXX
I (XXXX) am the one who has all the reactions to BP drugs and I have contacted you several times.You suggested I try PHYSIOTENS. I just learned today, after trying MANY companies that ship to Canada, that I am NOT allowed to bring PHYSIOTENS or MOXONIDINE into Canada because it is from Turkey and the UK. Would the herb CARDITONE for HBP work for me? People have had good results with it, but wanted to get an experts opinion. Any suggestions where to go from here? Thank you so much for your help.

All the best, XXXX

Could try

Detailed Answer:
Hello Ms . XXXX,
Welcome back. It is morning here and I just got up.
Good evening to you.
I am sorry to note that you are unable to get Physiotens for reasons other than medical.
Is it possible for you to receive Physiotens as a gift or to get from a different country of manufacture ?
Carditone has the main ingredient as Rauwolfia Serpentia from which one of the earliest antihypertensive Reserpine was made. I am not familiar with the other ingredients.
If you want to try it, it may be okay.
Best wishes,
Dr Noble Zachariah

Thank you so much Dr. XXXXXXX for your help. No, according to all companies that handle out of country drugs, if it is not approved by Canada, it is not allowed into the country. I called all five companies that I thought might be able to bring PHYSIOTENS into Canada, all told me the same - Canada will NOT allow PHYSIOTENS into our country. Now there is nothing more I can do to get a hold of it. I so appreciate all the help you have been. I do not want to go against the law. Guess I will continue to rely on Divine intervention. I will speak to my doctor about Carditone. It is available in the USA, but not Canada. Have relatives in the States so can have it sent to them.

All the best, and have a good day. XXXXXXX
