Low Blood Cell Count

http://dherbs.com/images/dherbs400x400.jpg
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.
Erythrocytes

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.

Leukocytes

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

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 goal 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
  • GeneticsBlood loss-such as from an injury or menstruation
Complications

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!

    Q: I'm looking to increase my red blood cell count...suggestions?

    A:

    Hi, thanks for the question.

    All fruits and vegetables, seeds and herbs raise white and red cell count. Adhering to a high raw vegan diet would be the best suggestion not only as a temporary detox or fix but as a permanent solution. Consider reading the beauty detox solution by Snyder as a guide book.

    Two spices that are implicated in increasing red and white blood cells are garlic and ginger. Consider adding them to your daily regiment. Also exercising daily and taking in foods that contain zinc can also boost your count. Adding a single cup of green tea daily can also help.

    Q: I have been diagnosed with neutropenia and been seeing a hematologist for the last 6 years. He wants to avoid doing a bone marrow biopsy on me if he can. I am also anemic and received a iron infusion about a year ago. I go weekly for a CBC count and Monday I was told that my iron count is low again. The lowest my white blood count has been is in the 700's. I am Afro-American and I know that it's common for our white blood count to run low. I rarely eat red meat. I was a vegetarian until I got pregnant with my son he is now 2 1/2 yrs old. I eat red meat about once a month now. Is there anything that I can take to build up my white blood cells count?

    A:

    African Americans need not concern themselves with white blood cell count. High rise of white blood cells usually denotes foreign invaders (toxins) in the body or that something is wrong in the body. When white blood cells start to rise that's not a good sign. When they are low that's a good sign. The folly of Western medicine is that they isolate everything. You can't isolate white blood cells from red blood cells. Blood is blood and so when dealing with the blood cells you have to deal with the blood. Period! I recommend you take our Blood & Lymphatic Formula, Electric Greens Cell Food Formula and Vitamin C Combo and modify your diet (dairy, meat, starches, and all acidic beverages) and watch the amazing results. Healing does not have to be complicated unless you're trying to exploit people!

    Q: My son was diagnosed with Stevens Johnson Syndrome. Jan. 2007, 10-day hospital stay,. Jan 2008, 8-day stay. This is terrible, more like biological experiment results put in place a long time ago. I’ve been thinking, and feeling, he needed to be detoxified. I am not knowledgeable on these toxic, viral, bacteria, fungus, whatever this thing is. I just don't understand it. The doctors don’t either. Where does it come from? When did it come? My Son is 16 years, trying to finish school. I will continue praying and seeking answers. I know I want to help him to be, and stay safe from the diseases, syndromes, pharmaceutical medications, misinformation, streets, and bad association. Thank You

    A:

    "Stevens-Johnson Syndrome" Stevens-Johnson Disease takes its name from two doctors, Albert M. Stevens, American pediatrician, b. 1884; and F.C. Johnson, an American physician, b. 1894. What is Stevens-Johnson syndrome? Stevens-Johnson syndrome is medically defined as: “A serious, sometimes fatal inflammatory disease affecting children and young adults. It is characterized by the acute onset of fever, bullae on the skin, and ulcers on the mucous membranes of the lips, eyes, mouth, nasal passage, and genitalia. Pneumonia, pain in the joints, and prostration are common. A complication may be perforation of the cornea. The syndrome may be an allergic reaction to certain drugs, or it may follow pregnancy, herpes virus I, or other infection. See also erythema multiforme.†– Mosby’s Medical Dictionary, 3rd ed., p. 1117 Okay, now to break things down in layman’s term for purposes of clear and simple understanding. So-called Stevens-Johnson syndrome is a medical term applied to a case of toxicity whereby the blood and lymph fluids are greatly polluted and toxic and whereby there is a large presence of MUCUS in the body (specifically the mucous membranes, the internal skin), which causes INFLAMMATION! When the skin is inflamed, mucus (thick, yellowish colored mucus) is usually the culprit. There are two kinds of mucus: bad mucus which is yellow-greenish in color, thick, stubborn and very sticky; and, good mucus, “a viscous, slippery secretion of the mucous membranes and glands, containing mucin, white blood cells, water, inorganic salts, and exfoliated cells.†– Mosby’s supra, p. 774 All skin conditions are blood disorders. The skin always manifests the condition of the blood. External skin problems also denote internal skin problems and what is the external skin? Answer: The mucous membranes! Mucous membrane is medically defined as: “any of four major kinds of thin sheets of tissue that cover or line various parts of the body. Mucous membranes line cavities or canals of the body that open to the outside, such as the lining of the mouth, the digestive tube, the respiratory passages, and the genitourinary tract. It consists of a surface of epithelial tissue covering a deeper later of connective tissue and protects the underlying structure, secretes mucus, and absorbs water, salts and other solutes. Compare serous membrane, skin, synovial membrane.†– Mosby’s supra, p. 774 Now, WHOOMP, There it is! Clearly, Stevens-Johnson syndrome is an adverse condition of the mucous membranes whereby the mucous membranes are inflamed (mucositis) due to an over-acidic condition (or acidosis). Now, in the definition of mucous membranes supra, it states the mucous membranes covers certain parts of the body and line cavities or canals of the body that open to the outside, i.e. mouth, digestive tube, respiratory passage, and genitourinary tract. Now in the definition of the syndrome itself supra, where does the syndrome manifest? Did not the definition (of Stevens-Johnson syndrome) say: “…. skin, … mucous membranes of the lips, eyes, mouth, nasal passage, and genitalia?†Yes it did! Are not these body parts, cavities or canals of the body that open to the outside of the body? Yes they are! Well, there you have it! Clearly Stevens-Johnson syndrome is a big medical word (though not that big and/or complex) describing something so basic as a mucus congestion leading to skin inflammation of certain cavities and canals of the body that lead to the outside, i.e. MOUTH (which includes the lips), EYES (which includes the cornea), NASAL PASSAGE (which links to the nose), and GENITALIA. Causes of Stevens-Johnson syndrome Because this syndrome (disease) involves mucus that tie into (or stems from) acidity, we know that the physical manifestation of this disease stems from poor and/or insalubrious diet, one high in acid-forming and mucopurulent so-called foods and beverages, i.e. meat (slaughtered animal flesh), dairy products (cow snot and pus); refined grains (i.e. white bread, white rice, white flour, pastries like cakes, cookies, donuts, etc.) and starches and a host of other so-called foods, as well as soda pop, milk, beer, wine, coffee, cocoa, etc. The greatest culprit of the physical manifestation of this disease is MUCUS from acid-forming foods (DEAD FOODS)! But because diet is involved here, this means the disease degenerative in nature and is 100% REVERSIBLE via change of diet and lifestyle as well as mindset/thought process and attitude. Healing from Stevens-Johnson syndrome naturally Like with every other major disease, DETOXIFYING the body is the first external step in healing from this disease. We actually begin the detox process when we begin to eat live, organic, sun-cooked or sun-baked foods, i.e. fruits and vegetables. Therefore, a change to a RAW FOODS and VEGAN-vegetarian diet would be ideal for healing. It would be wise to abstain from consuming all meat, dairy, refined grains, and refined starch products, and all acidic and effervescent beverages (i.e. soda pop, beer, etc.). Drink plenty of water (half gallon to gallon, depending on your body weight). Water helps to dissolve hardened mucus in the body. If you can find alkaline water, drink this water. The best waters are alkaline pH, negative charged, microclustered or structured, and ionic. The best way to get this kind of water is via ionic water machines from Asia. See www.ionizers.org/alkalife.html for more information. Soak daily in hot water (or warm water if you prefer), sea salt (1-2 boxes), and 1 cup 3% food grade hydrogen peroxide. Soak for at least 30 minutes before you start bathing. Rub your body down (from had to toe) after all baths/soaks and/or showers with Dherbs.Com OZ OIL. This is a miraculous healing oil and one of our best sellers! Our customers rave about this oil. There are plenty of herbs that can assist in the healing of Stevens-Johnson syndrome.

Good mucilaginous herbs include Slippery Elm Bark, Irish Moss, Marshmallow, and Guar Gum to name a few. These herbs should be taken together in a compound or mixture (not every single one of them, in case you can’t obtain all of them, but most of them). Dherbs.Com products that can assist in healing from Stevens-Johnson syndrome include FULL BODY DETOX (and CHILDREN DETOX (liquid extracts) for small children), 10-DAY SUPREME COLON CLEANSE, and 10-DAY SUPREME BLOOD CLEANSE kit.

    Q: I am taking more than 20-30 herbal supplements a day and am wondering if it's okay to mix or take all of them at the same time. Here's an example of some I am taking: Burdock, Yellow Dock, Sarsaparilla, Kelp, Licorice Root, Oregon Grape Root, Red Clover, Zinc, Copper, Selenium, Calcium, Magnesium, 50 Chlorella tablets 200mg, 10 500mg Spirulina capsules elderberry, echinacea, goldenseal, vitamin e, gotu kola, american ginseng guarana, dong quai, guggulipid, red yeast rice, hoodia, dandelion, cod liver oil, neptune krill oil, acai, psyllium husks, apple pectin, oat bran chromium picolinate, wormwood, damiana, st johns wort, 5-htp and pycnogenol not to mention others. They are mostly in gelatin capsules. I am concerned that too much gelatin is bad for me too!

    A:

    My God, you are overloading your body! Spread those supplements out throughout your day. Take like 6 of them at a time every 3 hours or so. This is best for your body!

    For example:
    7 a.m.
    Burdock
    Yellow Dock
    Sarsaparilla
    Kelp
    Licorice Root
    Oregon Grape Root
    10 a.m.
    Red Clover
    Zinc
    Copper
    Selenium
    Calcium
    Magnesium
    1 p.m.
    50 Chlorella tablets 200mg
    10 500mg Spirulina capsules
    elderberry
    echinacea
    goldenseal
    vitamin e
    4 p.m.
    gotu kola
    american ginseng
    guarana
    dong quai
    guggulipid
    red yeast rice
    7 p.m.
    dandelion
    cod liver oil
    neptune krill oil
    acai
    psyllium husks
    Before bedtime
    apple pectin
    oat bran
    chromium picolinate
    wormwood
    damiana
    st johns wort
    5-htp
    pycnogenol
    And gelatin is horrible. Gelatin capsules are hard to digest in the body.

    Q: What Causes Thrombotic Thrombocytopenic Purpura? A lack of activity in the ADAMTS13 enzyme (a type of protein in the blood) causes thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura (TPP). The ADAMTS13 gene controls the enzyme, which is involved in blood clotting. Not having enough enzyme activity causes platelets to clump together, forming blood clots. In TTP, when blood clots form, there are fewer platelets in the blood. This can cause bleeding into the skin (purpura), drawn-out bleeding from cuts, and internal bleeding. It also causes small blood clots to form suddenly throughout the body, including in the brain and kidneys. TTP also can cause red blood cells to break apart faster than the body can replace them. This leads to hemolytic anemia. My 25 yr. old niece has this very serious, rare disease, and I wanted to know if there is any natural herbs to that can help her heal this condition?

    A:

    There is plenty that can be done. Basically her blood needs to be addressed. This disease is perhaps mostly diet-related. Have her perform the FULL BODY DETOX. After the detox, put her on: BLOOD AND LYMPHATIC FORMULA , ELECTRIC GREENS CELL FOOD, VITAMIN C FORMULA, and KHEMETIAN GOLD and her situation will change for the better. She needs to change her diet too! More fruits and vegetables (and vegetable juice). Just stick with Dherbs and her situation will change. Stay positive!
