Sickle Cell Anemia

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

    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: 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. Alterative herbs or blood cleansing and purifying herbs, expectorant herbs, and mucilaginous herbs are the ideal herbs here.

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 planning to use angioprim to fully unclog my arteries. I was courious about the calcium phosphate that you offer. Calcium carbonate builds up, and clogs the arteries. Is calcium phosphate going to help unclog them? Is cayenne pepper 135,000 shu, really beneficial for arteries as a cleansing agent? I'm really interested in this cayenne pepper, and planning on using it. Please give me your thoughts!

    A:

    Calcium Carbonate has no place in the human body, Calcium Phosphate is organic and thus helpful. The body is able digest it, and it will help keep the arteries clear, and clean. Cayenne pepper is one of the best things for the blood, veins, and arteries. This fruit will greatly help you in so many ways.
