Low Blood Cell Count
Understanding Blood Cells

There are three types of blood cells:
  • Erythrocytes-These are red blood cells. They are the major cellular element of circulating blood that transports oxygen.
  • Leukocytes-These are white blood cells. They help fight infections.
  • Platelets-The smallest of the blood cells. They are essential to coagulation, or clotting.

These contain hemoglobin confined within a lipoid membrane. The number of cells per cubic millimeter of blood is usually maintained between 4.5 and 5.5 million in men and between 4.2 and 4.8 million in women. New erythrocytes are produced at a rate of slightly more than 1% a day; thus, a constant level is usually maintained.

With acute blood loss, hemolytic anemia, or chronic oxygen deprivation, erythrocyte production may increase greatly.

Erythrocytes originate in the marrow of the long bones. Maturation proceeds from a stem cell (promegaloblast) through the pronormoblast stage to the normoblast, the last stage before the mature adult cell develops.


There are 5 types of leukocytes:
  • Agranulocytes are lymphocytes and monocytes
  • Granulocytes are neutrophils, basophils, and eosinophils

White cells are able to squeeze through intracellular spaces. They are larger than erythrocytes, measuring 8 to 20 u in diameter. A cubic millimeter of normal blood usually contains 5,000 to 10,000 leukocytes.

Leukocytes help fight bacteria, fungi, and viruses, detoxification of toxic proteins that may result from allergic reactions and cellular injury, and the development of immunities.


Platelets are disk-shaped and contain no hemoglobin. They are essential for the coagulation of blood.

Normally between 200,000 and 300,000 platelets are found in 1 ml3 of blood.

Causes and Risk Factors

Regardless of the cause of the blood cell imbalance, the is to get the blood cells balanced. Diet-wise, nothing will cause imbalance of blood cells more than meat products, dairy products, refined starches and grains, refined sugar, and vices of alcohol consumption, cigarette smoking, and drug consumption (legal as well as illegal drugs).

Low blood cell counts can also be caused by:
  • Cancer treatment
  • Internal bleeding
  • Cancers of the bone or bone marrow
  • Metastasized cancers (cancer that spreads to other parts of the body)
  • Kidney failure
  • Poor diet
  • Pregnancy
  • Genetics Blood loss-such as from an injury or menstruation

Several complications occur from a low blood cell count:
  • Infection-low white blood cell counts make it harder for the body to fight infection
  • Anemia-this is a low red blood cell count
  • Bleeding-this is when platelets are low. It prevents blood from clotting.
Natural Healing Solutions

Blood is alive! Blood must be nourished and cleansed or purified and periodically. We build new blood every three months. It's ideal to work on the blood (rebuild, cleanse/purify) every three months.

Individual herbs that will cleanse, purify, nourish, build, and fortify the blood include:
  • Goldenseal Root
  • Echinacea Root
  • Oregon Grape
  • Bayberry
  • Barberry
  • Red Clover Tops (only a blood builder)
  • Chickweed
  • Manjistha
  • Chaparral
  • Sarsaparilla
  • Yellow Dock Root
  • Burdock Root
  • Amla Fruit
  • Cat's Claw
  • Pau D' Arco
  • Cerasee
  • Dandelion Root
  • Cleavers
  • Devil's Claw and
  • Cayenne (capsicum)
The best herb to rebuild red and white blood cell count is Amla, also known as Indian Gooseberry. Red Clover Tops is also a great blood builder and nourisher.

Blood nourishers such as Yellow Dock, Burdock Root, Red Clover Tops, Dandelion Root, Spinach Leaf, Parsley Leaf, Nettle, and Alfalfa. Yellow Dock, Burdock Root, and Dandelion Root are also high in organic iron.

Dietary Intervention

It will be necessary to make changes in the diet.

Our blood becomes thick and sticky due to what we eat, especially meat, dairy products, refined grains, refined starches, refined sugar and sweeteners, and other chemicals.

A vegan raw foods diet is best to manage blood conditions: 75% raw foods coupled with 25% cooked food can make an important difference.

Drinking vegetable juice containing greens (parsley, spinach, cilantro, celery, etc.) and beets greatly cleanse and rebuild the blood. A vegetable juice cocktail should and can be drunk daily.

Other beverages that will help heal the blood include wheat grass and barley grass. Actually, most green colored foods (plants) will benefit the blood.

Avoid drinking drinking beer and other spirits, cocoa, coffee, milk, lattes, soda pop, etc.

The best water to drink to help cleanse and heal the blood is alkaline water followed by distilled water. Alkaline water can be drank daily but distilled should only be drank during cleansing (including fasting).

Fasting is ideal in cleansing and healing the blood and therefore is greatly recommended.

One would be wise to change pharmaceutical drugs (medication) consumption for herbal consumption. Herbs harmonize with the biological makeup of humans. Drugs don't!

Reasons to Stay Clear of Eggs

For many making the transition to a plant-based lifestyle, cheese and eggs can be the hardest things to give up. In fact, a love for eggs and cheese in particular is often cited as one of the reasons people go vegetarian as opposed to vegan. It seems meat is easy to give up for some, while many can’t let go of the dairy stuffs. Recently, a Huffington Post blogger posted on “5 Smart Reasons to Eat Eggs,” with mention of the high protein content of the food, a possible reduced risk of cancer, and more. We’re here to tell you, Green Monsters, this advice isn’t so great for you – or for the animals involved in the egg industry. Here are 5 Reasons to NOT Eat Eggs:

1. Many studies show egg consumption actually increases the risk of certain types of cancers, including colorectal and bladder cancers. Check this out: “A case-control study done in Argentina found that people consuming approximately 1 1/2 eggs per week had nearly 5 times the colorectal cancer risk compared with individuals consuming less than 11 eggs per year. And, the World Health Organization analyzed data from 34 countries and determined that egg consumption was significantly and positively correlated with mortality from colon and rectal cancers in both men and women. Moderate egg consumption also tripled the risk of developing bladder cancer as determined by a case-control study of 130 newly diagnosed bladder cancer patients published in the journal International Urology and Nephrology.” In other words, don’t risk it! There are so many egg alternatives out there that it’s silly to risk your health.

Vermont to Pass GMO Labeling!

Against the odds and the lofty wallets of Monsanto lobbyists, Vermont is soon to be the first state to require mandatory GMO labeling.

On April 16, with a vote of 28 to 2, the Vermont state senate passed a bill that makes GMO labeling mandatory for all foods sold in Vermont. It also identifies it as being illegal for GMO-containing foods to be labelled as “natural” or “all natural.”
