Natural Alternatives To Increase Platelets Backed By Scientific Evidence

Many people suffer from low platelets.  One of the biggest causes of low platelet counts is ITP Blood Disorder which is an autoimmune condition that decreases platelets. This condition requires doctor's care but you can also assist your doctor to reverse low platelet counts using all natural alternatives.

You may at first think this to be just wishful thinking or some kind of scam but proven natural methods are backed by scientific evidence.

I have an autoimmune disease called lupus and there are also natural remedies for this that I have found effective. The point is, all natural treatments shouldn't be overlooked for any ailment, condition or disease especially for ITP.

Remember, you should always be under doctors care and standard medical treatments are needed especially if counts are below 50k. The situation becomes an emergency below 20k and can require hospitalization. But all natural remedies can be used as a "complementary" alternative to your current medical treatment.

In fact many doctors are now recognizing the value of implementing additional natural methods along with standard treatments. Your doctor should at least be willing to cooperate with your wishes, be sure to communicate them to him or her.

There is a fantastic book written about how all natural methods can be used to end low platelets. The title is Conquer Low Platelets and is written by Dr. Louis Cruz and is a must read if you have ITP. He has spent a lifetime successfully treating family members and his patients with all natural methods.

All references to the scientific evidence to support his claims and treatments are available at the end of the book in the bibliography. If you would like to read more about this publication you can go here - Dr. Louis Cruz's Website

Are You Completely Absorbed In Your ITP Blood Disorder? Or Can You Still Feel Compassion?

I stayed up late last night following the events of the 8.9 quake and subsequent tsunami in northern Japan. My heart and prayers go out to those affected by such catastrophic events.

This morning I was reading about more consequences that have reached closer to where I live, northern California, specifically Crescent City.  Not the damage of Japan but total destruction of the harbor and surrounding areas. Again, lives upset and changed forever.

Events like these may make our own health issues pale in comparison but you get to decide whether they have a negative or positive effect on you and your health, the choice is yours.

Let me try to explain.

Low platelet count or any autoimmune disorder can be drastically affected by our feelings. Events like this can effect our mood and create anxiety or stress that is a burden to our health. Now we can worry about events like this to the extent that they cause us unneeded stress and anxiety and have negative effects on our health or we can create something positive because of events like these.

Giving some time to meditate about the plight of others is a good thing. Takes the focus off of ourselves for a while. We can even realize how many blessings we actually have compared to others. Our lives, family, friends and may others. We may not be in a position to do much for ones suffering from the current catastrophe but we can use this event to remind us to always be willing to help the ones we can.

This will keep us a active member of our society and especially give one a sense of worth, something very important when activities are limited by a disability such as low platelets. A positive attitude is very important to our health and what better way to maintain one than putting the interest of others ahead of our own when ever possible or our circumstances allow for it.

So take some positive action to the benefit of others around you, in the long run everyone comes out the winner.
