Reader tips to restore taste and smell.

Dear Dr. SerVaas,

Like Ed Hart in the Nov./Dec., 2007 issue, I suffered from not being able to taste my food. Everything was fiat and tasteless. I came across a product that cured me. I remain grateful to God and East Park Research for Indium XL. After I used it a short time, my taste began to return and remains normal. I continue to use the product.

Dear Dr. SerVaas,

I lost my sense of smell for about two years. Then, I came down with a stubborn case of bronchitis. After taking doxycycline for four weeks to clear the infection, my sense of smell was restored. A year earlier, taking the same antibiotic for two weeks did nothing for the smeller. It has been working well for the past seven years without further treatment.

In addition, Post readers from Wayland, Massachusetts, and Lancaster, New York, recommend taking 25 mg of zinc every day to restore and maintain the ability to taste and smell.
