The Turmanidze clan has long been famous for its healers.
Malakia Turmanidze was the first folk healer who was officially allowed by the Soviet government to practice medicine. He was summoned to Moscow and shown several patients. Somehow he separated those who were incurable and cured the rest in a few weeks. He returned home with a document authorizing healing, but treated him carelessly, and so considering himself a folk healer.
Malakiy chose his son George as his successor, and he became the first certified doctor in the family. He was engaged in clinical research of the ointment, but at the beginning of the Second World War he returned to Tbilisi, where he began working in a hospital.
The founder of Turmanidze Plus LLC was the grandson of Malakia Turmanidze, Zurab Turmanidze (born 1937), a surgeon with half a century of continuous medical practice, a corresponding member of the Military Medical Academy of Georgia since 2000, a surgeon at the Alexander Aladashvili Clinic in Tbilisi, member of the international European Commission of UNESCO on traditional medicine.
The Tbilisi dynasty kept the secret of making it a secret for many centuries, and earlier it was only possible to buy ointment from them at home.
After the establishment of Turmanidze Plus LLC, the ointment was successfully produced in a small enterprise. But from January 1, 2022, the requirement for pharmaceutical companies to comply with GMP and GDP standards came into force in Georgia. Turmanidze plus LLC says that they do not have the funds to re-equip production to new standards – this requires from one to two million lari. The only thing that could be done before the production stopped was to make as much ointment as possible and create a reserve for a while, while the issue of restoring the production of Turmanidze’s miraculous ointments would be decided.
Turmanidze ointment is something that you can bring from Georgia for yourself or as a useful souvenir.
