Thank you again Ted, I have good news to report. My brother, after only a few days on lemon-bicarbonate twice a day says that his phlebitis is practically gone (not only better). He has suffered with this leg's vein for three years and tried everything but after just 4-5 days of this remedy his pain is completely gone, he feels the vein "fresh" vs the "fire" he felt before. He cannot believe it... My mother who is 74 and has a lot of problems is feeling much better too. She didn't have any appetite, most of the times she wouldn't have dinner just because she didn't feel like eating (she also has memory loss, stomach problems, always exhausted, what seems a chronic cough etc.) after the same amount of days she says she is very hungry and that she can be active all day long. She is having three meals a day now!! Thank you so much for this really healing water!!! All the best, D
I've read with interest on this forum of the various problems that people have had with thrombocytopenia. In my case I was diagnosed with thrombocytopenia in Sept. 04. My platelet count was dropping steadily from 145[x10power9] to 99[x10power9] by Dec. 05. "Normal values are 150-400. I suffered from heavy bruising which was getting worse. I was prescribed prednilosone to reduce my auto-immune response.
However, after some research I decided to help myself. I stopped taking fish oils, flax oil and all omega 3 type oils. By April 06 my platelet count returned to normal values and I was discharged from the hospital. The doctor was amazed but didn't ask me any questions.
Looking back it was obvious to me that the omega 3 oils were to blame and I was mis-diagnosed with an auto-immune disease. At present I do not consume the so called "essential fatty acids" [omega 3 & 6] and my health is better than at any time in my life. For detailed information on "essential fatty acids" I thoroughly recommend Ray Peat's website.

I have had thrombocytosis for about 3 years and am taking a chemotherapy drug to lower my platelet count but this has now caused neuropathy in my legs. I am not diabetic. Would someone know how to lower the platelet count other than drugs. Thanks for your help.
I have used vitamin c for years for bleeding gums, bad nosebleeds and any other bleeding problems. I either take a stress vitamin with 500vit c or just a vit. c by itself -preferably a chewable one. Especially during menopause -taking 500 vit c every 3-4 hours will stop hemoraging and blot clots and normalize the flow. You must take it every 3-4 hrs. or it will start up again. It is better if at least one of the doses is a stress b vit with 500 added vit.c in it. I fell and hit my head on a concrete wall and opened a 4 inch gapin my scalp with excessive bleeding. I chewed 2 500 vit. c and immediately the bleeding completely stopped, helping me on the inside and outside of my head. I didn't have to have any drainage from fluid buildup inside my head and the wound healed very fast. Vit c normalizes the blood-helps with blood clots that are already there to help dissolve them and is so important is excessive bleeding that no one should ever go to the dentist or go into surgery without taking it if you bleed easily. It could save your life. I used to literally take a sheet to bed with me after haveing a tooth pulled to wipe the blood on. After I learned about vit c and took it before i went to the dentist, the bleeding stopped before I got off the parking lot. I really think I could have even done better without the cotton! Hope this helps someone keep from having an hysterectomy or other complications. I have used vit c for these things for over 30 years. I don't take it on a regular basis, mostly if I get sick with a cold or stomach flu which about 10 grams -I take it in peanut butter and syrup- the powdered vit c. Take 2 doses about a hour apart sometimes will kill stomach flu completely out if you catch it in time. Thanks.
