Sickle Cell Anemia & Crisis

Solutions for healing sickle cell and iron deficiency anemia. The most important agent in healing these blood disorders is iron or iron phosphate. This herb is par excellence for all iron deficiency disorders and is a great cleanser of the blood and lymph fluids. http://dherbs.com/images/dherbs400x400.jpg
Sickle cell means the red blood cells are sickle shaped (half rounded) instead of being fully round like a circle. Sickle cell anemia is a condition where abnormal hemoglobin triggers a sticky consistency and stiff texture, which can cause blockages in arteries, veins and capillaries. It is an extremely serious disease that's most commonly found in African-Americans.

Causes and Risk Factors

Sickle cell anemia is caused by a genetic mutation of the hemoglobin, which carries oxygen from the lungs to other parts of the body.

Both parents must carry the sickle cell gene in order for it to be passed to an infant.

Symptoms

Some common symptoms of sickle cell anemia are:
  • Anemia
  • Episodic pain
  • Swollen hands and feet
  • Frequent infections
  • Vision problems
  • Delayed growth or physical development
Natural Healing Solutions

The most important agent in managing sickle cell anemia is IRON or Iron Phosphate (which is organic iron). Nature provides us with iron phosphate, which is needed for human hemoglobin.

The greatest way to obtain optimal and maximum amounts of iron phosphate is via herbs. Herbs rich in iron or iron phosphate are:
  • Yellow dock root
  • Dandelion root
  • Burdock root
  • Nettle leaf
  • Mullein leaf
  • Devil's claw
  • Iron weed
  • Blue cohosh root
  • Echinacea
  • Red raspberry leaf
  • Fenugreek
  • Thyme
  • White oak bark
  • Yerba mate
You might also want to try these excellent blood purifiers:
  • Red clover
  • Strawberry leaf
  • Chapparal
  • Chickweed
  • Manjistha
  • Cayenne
  • Elder berries
  • Cerasee
  • Oregon grape
Oxygen also plays a role in reversing iron deficiency disorders. Liquid oxygen drops products can prove most helpful in cases of sickle cell.

Taking daily alkaline baths (in sea salt) will help to alkalize the body. And if you have an oxygen or ozone machine, you can take an oxygen bath. If you add a whole box of sea salt to this bath, some serious healing will take place because now you're dealing with inundation of oxygen and alkalinity.

Minerals

Hematite cleanses the blood and stimulates the absorption of iron and the formation of healthy red blood cells, making it vital for persons battling sickle cell.

Malachite is ideal for sickle cell and iron deficiency anemia as it is an iron and also helps in absorbing copper. It consists of the blue-green dynamic (like blue-green algae) and therefore is a must for healing on all levels.

Dietary Intervention

Change your diet to one that's includes plenty of iron-rich foods. Natural sources of iron are:
  • Parsley
  • Spinach
  • Greens (collards and mustard)
  • Watercress
  • Burdock
  • Chard
  • Kale
It is best to juice the above green foods (vegetables) or to eat them steamed (for seven minutes or less).

Seaweed

Seaweeds are also great sources of natural iron:
  • Irish Moss
  • Dulse
  • Kelp
  • Spirulina
  • Chlorella
  • Blue Green Algae
Seaweeds are the greatest food you can eat and are the most oxygenating plants on the planet and greatly increase and enhance oxygen throughout the body. But by all means, the best seaweed you can consume is Blue Green Algae.

Fruits

Fruits that provide good and moderate amounts of iron include:
  • Black currants
  • Grapes
  • Cherries
  • Strawberries
  • Elder berries
  • Blueberries
  • Lycii berries
  • Blackberries
  • Pumpkin
  • Lime
Grasses and Sprouts

Iron-rich grasses and sprouts are:
  • Alfalfa
  • Barley grass
  • Wheat grass
ALFALFA (herb or sprouts) is laced with organic iron. Most commercial brands of chlorophyll are made from Alfalfa. So drink plenty of chlorophyll (adding it to your water).

BARLEY GRASS and WHEAT GRASS (2-4 ounces daily) also provide essential iron (and other minerals and nutrients) and are also great sources of chlorophyll.

Thiocyanate

Thiocyanate is known to have anti-sickling properties. Foods rich in Thiocyanate are:
  • White yam
  • Plantain
  • Banana
  • Pulse (all legumes)
  • Butter beans
  • Lentils
  • Black eye peas
  • Garbanzo beans (Chickpeas)
  • Lima beans
  • Millet
  • Buckwheat
  • Falafel
  • Humus
  • Oatmeal
  • Teff (Injera)
  • Turnips
  • Rutabaga
  • Brussel sprouts
  • Almonds
  • Raspberries

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.”
