Advances in the medical field seem to come faster than we can keep up with them, that is if you are healthy and not waiting for relief or a cure from some relentless disease. On the other hand, if you are ill the wait can seem endless. What is even worse is if a cure or relief has always been there and gone unnoticed or even discounted. This is exactly the case when it comes to ITP Blood Disorder.

Standard treatments such as steroids, chemotherapy or spleen removal have been around for quite some time and have provided some relief for sufferers of platelet dysfunction. However these default treatments come with serious side effects. A recent You Tube video of a young woman with ITP had her spleen removed at 17 now has to many platelets and has to take blood thinners for the rest of her life to avoid a stroke is just one example.

Unlike Hemophilia, ITP Blood disorder is not genetic. More often than not it is triggered by something or a combination of things. Identifying the trigger or triggers is the first step towards winning your fight against ITP Blood Disorder. Your immune system is overacting or is confused, destroying platelets as if they were the enemy. ITP is an autoimmune disorder and the root causes are often over looked by doctors who usually get involved in treating the symptoms instead.

The life style of Western nations is a big contributor to low platelet blood count. Much can be done to combat this with a change in diet. A diet eliminating processed foods can be the first step towards recovery from ITP Blood Disorder. A mother of a young girl implemented this on her daughter and increased platelets from 5K to 117K. You can read the complete story of Maggie and Vivianna in this free ebook, 7 Steps to Cure ITP Naturally.

Eating a healthy diet and proper exercise is good for anyone so if you are suffering from low platelet blood count this is a good place to start. However you will most likely need to dig a little deeper to get results. It is best to get a complete blood panel and identify any possible vitamin or mineral deficiencies. You may also be able to identify chemical or heavy metal exposures so as to eliminate future exposures to these.

If necessary more detailed testing with Bio-tracker technology can be used to find the more difficult triggers to ITP. This and an advanced form of testing using DNA samples is helpful. This has helped some when the common tests yield little results. I would also suggest seeing a nutritionally orientated or even a naturopathic doctor before implementing any natural methods or remedies to increase platelets.

You need to realize that in order to win the fight against ITP Blood Disorder you will have to take action. You will have to take responsibility for your health. No one else will do it for you! Learn everything you can about your condition and all the options available. Research what others have done and the results they have attained. Make things happen and win your struggle against platelet dysfunction. Good health to you.

    i got an email?? is this true?? its about sugar free soda?
    I have not researched this subject, and make no claim of its validity.
    SWEET POISON A MUST READ

    In October of 2001, my sister started getting very sick. She had stomach spasms and she was having a hard time getting around. Walking was a major chore. It took everything she had just to get out of bed; she was in so much pain.

    By March 2002, she had undergone several tissue and muscle biopsies and was on 24 various prescription medications. The doctors could not determine what was wrong with her. She was in so much pain, and so sick.she just knew she was dying. She put her house, bank accounts, life insurance, etc., in her oldest daughter’s name, and made sure that her younger children were to be taken care of.

    She also wanted her last hooray, so she planned a trip to Florida (basically in a wheelchair) for March 22nd.

    On March 19 I called her to ask how her most recent tests went, and she said they didn’t find anything on the test, but they believe she had MS (Multiple Sclerosis).
    I recalled an article a friend of mine e-mailed to me and I asked my sister if she drank diet soda? She told me that she did. As a matter of fact, she was getting ready to crack one open that moment.

    I told her not to open it, and to stop drinking the diet soda!
    I e-mailed her the article my friend, a lawyer, had sent.
    My sister called me within 32 hours after our phone conversation and told me she had stopped drinking the diet soda AND she could walk! The muscle spasms went away. She said she didn’t feel 100% but she sure felt a lot better. She told me she was going to her doctor with this article and would call me when she got home.

    Well, she called me, and said her doctor was amazed! He is going to call all of his MS patients to find out if they consumed artificial sweeteners of any kind.
    In a nutshell, she was being poisoned by the Aspartame in the diet soda…and literally dying a slow and miserable death.

    When she got to Florida March 22, all she had to take was one pill, and that was a pill for the Aspartame poisoning! She is well on her way to a complete recovery.
    And she is walking! No wheelchair! This article saved her life.
    If it says ‘SUGAR FREE’ on the label; DO NOT EVEN THINK ABOUT IT!
    I have spent several days lecturing at the WORLD ENVIRONMENTAL CONFERENCE on ‘ASPARTAME,’ marketed as ‘NutraSweet,’ ‘Equal,’ and ‘Spoonful.’

    In the keynote address by the EPA, it was announced that in the United States in 2001 there is an epidemic of multiple sclerosis and systemic lupus. It was difficult to determine exactly what toxin was causing this to be rampant.
    I stood up and said that I was there to lecture on exactly that subject.
    I will explain why Aspartame is so dangerous: When the temperature of this sweetener exceeds 86 degrees F, the wood alcohol in ASPARTAME converts to formaldehyde and then to formic acid, which in turn c auses metabolic acidosis. Formic acid is the poison found in the sting of fire ants. The methanol toxicity mimics, among other condit ions, multiple sclerosis and systemic lupus. Many people were being diagnosed in error. Although multiple sclerosis is not a death sentence, Methanol toxicity is!

    Systemic lupus has become almost as rampant as multiple sclerosis, especially with Diet Coke and Diet Pepsi drinkers. The victim usually does not know that the Aspartame is the culprit. He or she continues its use; irritating the lupus to such a degree that it may become a life-threatening condition.
    We have seen patients with systemic lupus become asymptotic, once taken off diet sodas.

    In cases of those diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, most of the symptoms disappear. We’ve seen many cases where vision loss returned and hearing loss improved markedly.

    This also applies to cases of tinnitus and fibromyalgia.
    During a lecture, I said, ‘If you are using ASPARTAME (NutraSweet, Equal, Spoonful, etc) and you suffer from fibromyalgia symptoms, spasms, shooting, pains, numbness in your legs, cramps, vertigo, dizziness, headaches, tinnitus, joint pain, unexplainable depression, anxiety attacks, slurred speech, blurred vision, or memory loss you probably have ASPARTAME poisoning!’
    < FONT color=#339966 size=4>People were jumping up during the lecture saying, ‘I have some of these symptoms. Is it reversible?’

    Yes! Yes! Yes! STOP drinking diet sodas and be alert for Aspartame on food labels! Many products are fortified with it! This is a serious problem.
    Dr. Espart (one of my speakers) remarked that so many people seem to be symptomatic for MS and during his recent visit to a hospice, a nurse stated that six of her friends, who were heavy Diet Coke addicts, had all been diagnosed with MS. This is beyond coincidence!

    Diet soda is NOT a diet product! It is a chemically altered, multiple SODIUM (salt) and ASPARTAME containing product that actually makes you crave carbohydrates. It is far more likely to make you GAIN weight!
    These products also contain formaldehyde, which stores in the fat cells, particularly in the hips and thighs. Formaldehyde is an absolute toxin and is used primarily to preserve ’tissue specimens.’ Many products we use every day contain this chemical but we SHOULD NOT store it IN our body!

    Dr. H. J. Roberts stated in his lectures that once free of the ‘diet products’ and with no significant increase in exercise; his patients lost an average of 19 pounds over a trial period.

    Aspartame is especially dangerous for diabetics.
    We found that some physicians, who believed that they had a patient with retinopathy, in fact, had symptoms caused by Aspartame.
    The Aspartame drives the bloodsugar out of control. Thus diabetics may suffer acute memory loss due to the fact that aspartic acid and phenylalanine are NEUROTOXIC when taken without the other amino acids necessary for a good balance.

    Treating diabetes is all about BALANCE. Especially with diabetics, the Aspartame passes the blood/brain barrierand it then deteriorates the neurons of the brain; causing various levels of brain damage, seizures, depression, manic depression, panic attacks, uncontrollable anger and rage.

    Consumption of Aspartame causes these same symptoms in non-diabetics as well.
    Documentation and observation also reveal that thousands of children diagnosed with ADD and ADHD have had complete turnarounds in their behavior when these chemicals have been removed from their diet. So called ‘behavior modification prescription drugs’ (Ritalin and others) are no longer needed. Truth be told, they were never NEEDED in the first place! Most of these children were being ‘poisoned’ on a daily basis with the very foods that were ‘better for them than sugar.’

    It is also suspected that the Aspartame in thousands of pallets of diet Coke and diet Pepsi consumed by men and women fighting in the Gulf War, may be partially to blame for the well-known Gulf War Syndrome.

    Dr. Roberts warns that it can cause birth defects, i.e. mental retardation, if taken at the time of conception and during early pregnancy.
    Children are especially at risk for neurological disorders and should NEVER be given artificial sweeteners. There are many different case histories to relate of children suffering grand mal seizures and other neurological disturbances talking about a plague of neurological diseases directly caused by the use of this deadly poison.’

    Herein lies the problem:
    There were Congressional Hearings when Aspartame was included 100 different products and strong objection was made concerning its use. Since this initial hearing, there have been two subsequent hearings, and still nothing has been done. The drug and chemical lobbies have very deep pockets.

    Sadly, MONSANTO’S patent on Aspartame has EXPIRED!
    There are now over 5,000 products on the market that contain this deadly chemical and there will be thousands more introduced. Everybody wants a ‘piece of the Aspartame pie.’ I assure you that MONSANTO, the creator of Aspartame, knows how deadly it is.

    And isn’t it ironic that MONSANTO funds, among others, the American Diabetes Association, the American Dietetic Association and the Conference of the American College of Physicians?

    This has been recently exposed in the New York Times.
    These [organizations] cannot criticize any additives or convey their link to MONSANTO because they take money from the food industry and are required to endorse their products.

    Senator Howard Metzenbaum wrote and presented a bill that would require label warnings on products containing Aspartame, especially regarding pregnant women, children and infants. The bill would also institute independent studies on the known dangers and the problems existing in the general population regarding seizures, changes in brain chemistry, neurological changes and behavioral symptoms.
    The bill was killed.

    It is known that the powerful drug and chemical lobbies are responsible for this, letting loose the hounds of disease and death on an unsuspecting and uninformed public. Well, you’re Informed now! YOU HAVE A RIGHT TO KNOW!

    Please print this out and/or e-mail to your family and friends.

    They have a right to know too

      This rant is an amalgam of non-scientific canards, outrageous claims, intentional misinterpretations, dramatic hyperbole, highly selective use of data, and a few scattered truths. It’s constructed this way intentionally, of course, so that the lay public can’t readily evaluate it. To paraphrase comedian George Schlatter, “this rant is to scientific truth what Mother Teresa is to mud wrestling.”

      Scientific study after scientific study has shown aspartame to be safe. Yet this fear-mongering about aspartame has been around for a long time, and won’t die. It’s brought to you by the same kind of alarmists who crusade against vaccinations and fluoride in drinking water. Pay them no mind.

    Could I be suffering from lupus or is this just a result of my eating disorder?
    I am in recovery from the eating disorder, and have been eating a healthy diet for the past couple of months. I used to sometimes go a few days with no food or drink, even longer with no food but still drinking, plus for about 5 months I was eating around 350 calories a day and lost 60 pounds, then more recently I would have vomited up to 10 or even sometimes 15 times per day.

    A few months ago I got a weird rash on my neck that did not itch and was not painful, it has mostly gone now but still gets worse in sunlight, and it looks like the one of the rashes associated with lupus.
    I get a lot of mouth ulcers, even though I have not vomited a lot in the last 3 months, I often get one after the other, and sometimes small clusters of 3 or four in the same spot.
    I am very sensitive to the sun and it causes my cheeks and the bridge of my nose to go very red, like the butterly rash.
    I suffer from Rayaud’s phenomenon, when I am cold my fingers go really pale, then blue, then purple, then bright red.
    I have gastrointestinal issues such as nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea.
    My eyes often feel dry.
    I get pain in my joints and muscles.
    I get a lot of really painful headaches.
    I have episodes of psychosis.
    I have major depression.
    Also I get really bad fatigue.

    I am 16 years old by the way…

    I have found these to all be symptoms of lupus, but I suppose most of them really could just be as a result of my eating disorder…
    How am I supposed to tell?

    Way too much written here – more than two scrolls and you loose people. Anything like this that I get in email – I don’t even bother reading the whole thing. Like now. Who is ‘someone’? – name your sources and put a link that leads to something, and not an unknown URL.

    did u know? i got this in the email?
    Reading this information & sharing it, might mean saving a life or improving the quality of someone’s life, maybe yours.

    In October of 2001, my sister started getting very sick, she had stomach spasms, she was having a hard time getting around, and to walk was a major chore. It took everything she had just to get out of bed; she was in so much pain.

On March 19th I called her to ask her how one of her tests went, and she said they didn’t find anything on the test, but they believe she had MS. I thought, oh, my…. then I recalled an article a friend of mine emailed to me…and I asked her…. Do you drink Diet pop?

    She told me yes, as a matter of fact she was getting ready to crack one open that
    moment. I told her not to open it, and stop drinking the diet pop…. and I emailed her the following article.

    She called me within 32 hours after our phone conversation and told me she stopped drinking the diet pop, and she can walk. She went up the stairs, and the muscle spasms went away. She said she didn’t feel 100% well, but sure felt a lot better. She told me she was going to her doctor with this article and would call me back when she got home.

    She called me, and her doctor was amazed, he is going to call all of his MS patients to find out if they consumed artificial sweetener!

    In a nutshell she was being poisoned by the aspartame in the diet soda, dying a slow death!

    When she got to FL March 22nd, all she had to take was one pill, and that was a pill for poisoning… she is well on her way to recovery… and she is walking!!! No wheelchair!!!
    This article saved her life!!!

    The life saving article:

    If it says “SUGAR FREE,” on the label, DO NOT EVEN THINK ABOUT IT!
    Have spent several days lecturing at the WORLD ENVIRONMENTAL CONFERENCE on “ASPARTAME” marketed as ‘NutraSweet,’ ‘Equal,’ and ‘Spoonful.’ In the keynote

    The methane toxicity mimics, among other conditions, multiple sclerosis. People were being diagnosed with having multiple sclerosis in error. The multiple sclerosis is not a
    death sentence, where methanol toxicity is!

    Systemic lupus has become almost as rampant as multiple sclerosis; especially with Diet Coke and Diet Pepsi drinkers. The victim usually does not know that the aspartame is the culprit. He or she continues its use, irritating the lupus to such a degree that it may become life threatening. We have seen patients with systemic lupus become asymptomatic once taken off diet sodas.

    .
    During the lecture I said, “If you are using ASPARTAME (NutraSweet, Equal, Spoonful, etc.) And you suffer from fibromyalgia symptoms, spasms, shooting pains, numbness in your legs, cramps, vertigo, dizziness, headaches, tinnitus, joint pain, depression, anxiety attacks, slurred speech, blurred vision, or memory loss…. you probably have ASPARTAME DISEASE!”

    People were jumping up during the lecture saying, I’ve got some of these symptoms: Is it reversible? Yes!

    Not drinking diet sodas and keeping an eye out for aspartame on food labels. Yes!

    We have a very serious problem. A stranger came up to Dr. Espisto (one of my speakers) and me and said: “Could you tell me why so many people seem to be coming down with MS? During a visit to a hospice, a nurse said that six of her friends, who were heavy Diet Coke addicts, had all been diagnosed with MS. This is beyond coincidence!

    Diet Coke and Diet Pepsi, etc. are NOT A DIET PRODUCT!
    The Congressional Record states that it makes you crave carbohydrates and will make you FAT. The formaldehyde stores in the fat cells, particularly if no significant increase in exercise, etc.

    Aspartame is especially dangerous for diabetics. We found that physicians would believe that they have a patient with retinopathy, when in fact the symptoms are caused by aspartame! The aspartame drives the blood sugar out of control! Thus diabetics may suffer acute memory loss due to the fact that aspartic acid and phenylalanine are neurotoxin without the other amino acids found in protein. Thus it passes the blood brain barrier and deteriorates the neurons of the brain, causing in diabetics (as well as in patients not suffering from diabetes) various kinds of brain damage, seizures, depression, manic seizures, manic depression, panic attacks, rage, and violence. (The Aspartame in thousands of pallets of diet Coke and diet Pepsi, consumed by men and women fighting in the Gulf War may be partially to blame for the well-known Gulf War Syndrome.)

    Dr. Roberts warns that it can cause birth defects: i.e. mental retardation if taken at the time of conception and early pregnancy. Children are especially at risk for neurological disorders and should NOT be given NutraSweet. I can relate different case histories of children having mal seizures and other disturbances, being on NutraSweet. Unfortunately it is not always easy to convince a mother that aspartame is to blame for her child’s illness. Only by trial and success will she be able to warn other mothers to take their children’s health into their own hands.

    Stevia, a sweet herb, NOT A MANUFACTURED ADDITIVE, which helps in the metabolism of sugar (which would be ideal for diabetics) has now been approved as a dietary supplement by the FDA. For years the FDA has outlawed this sweet food because of their loyalty to MONSANTO.

    Books on this subject are available: EXCITOTOXINS: THE TASTE THAT KILLS written by Dr. Russell Blayblock (Health Press 1-800-643-2665) and
    DEFENSE AGAINST ALZHEIMER’S DISEASE – written by DR H. J. Roberts, also a diabetic specialist.

    These two doctors will be posting a position paper with some case histories on the deadly effects of Aspartame on the Internet.

    According to the Conference of the American College of Physicians “we are talking about a plague of neurological diseases caused by this deadly poison.”

    Here is the problem: There were Congressional Hearings when aspartame was included in 100 different products. Since this initial hearing, there have been two subsequent hearings, but to no avail. Nothing has been done. The drug and chemical lobbies have very deep pockets. Now there are over 5,000 products containing this chemical, and the PATENT HAS EXPIRED!!!!!

    Conference of the American College of Physicians.

    This has been exposed in the New York Times – to no avail. These Associations cannot criticize any additives or convey their link to MONSANTO because they take money from the food industry and have to endorse their products.

    Senator Howard Hetzenbaum wrote a bill that would have warned all infants, pregnant mothers and children of the dangers of aspartame. The bill would have also instituted independent studies on the problems existing in the population (seizures, changes in brain chemistry, changes neurological and behavioral symptoms). It was killed by the powerful drug and chemical lobbies, letting loose the hounds of disease and death on an unsuspecting public!
    i got this in an email. so read it, even if u thing wtf, lol casue it could be useful some time for someone

    Has anyone heard of the lupus recovery diet, by Jill Hunington?
    If you have this book can you give me some of the things she says not to eat, or some of the recipes. I really need to know some of the things that we eat that triggers flares. Also if you could give me some of the things she says to eat. I would buy the book but as of now I have spent all of my money on doctors and doctors bills, hospital bills. The plaquenil does not work for me, it makes me really sick, the prednisone is causing major problems internally, nothing is seeming to work, I need hope and help. Please if you know this book, please tell me what it says

      Since this is a condition resultant to an immune insufficiency, would be more beneficial to look into how to treat the immune system specifically. Could start by doing a search for turkey tail mushrooms. Also, search pycnogenol.

      Lupus is also pretty well established to be familial. Genetically passed on to the females of certain ethnic cultures.

      Sorry I have no knowledge of the book you refer to but, would consider it with some degree of skepticism. No historical data to establish any remission of lupus erythematosis.

    This is the scrambled tofu recipe that I love!!

    INGREDIENTS
    16-ounce block firm tofu
    3 cloves garlic, peeled and sliced thin (about 1 1/2 tablespoons)
    3 tablespoons diced red bell pepper
    2 tablespoons olive oil
    1/2 teaspoon turmeric
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
    3/4 cup sliced green onions, scallions, chives or 1/2 cup minced onion
    2 teaspoons soy sauce
    Fresh salsa
    Corn tortillas

    Drain the tofu and crumble it, using clean hands. Sauté the garlic and diced pepper with the olive oil in a medium sauté pan on medium heat, for about 2 minutes. Stir in the crumbled tofu first, then add turmeric, salt, pepper, green onions (scallions, chives or onions) and soy sauce. Cook the tofu for 3 more minutes, stirring occasionally. Serve with salsa and warm corn tortillas.
