Ayurvedic Treatment for Hemochromatosis and Ferromagnetic Cancer Theory.
The most effective treatment for hemochromatosis is to reduce iron in the body by phlebotomy (withdrawal of blood from the arm veins). The Ayurvedic treatment for hemochromatosis is aimed at removing the excess iron from the body, preventing excessive iron absorption, treating the symptoms and preventing complications. High iron absorption from the intestines is prevented using medicines like Kutaj-Parpati, Panchamrut-Parpati, Suvarna-Parpati, Sukshma-Triphala, Triphala (Three Fruits), Arogya-Vardhini, Bilva-Avaleha, Psyllium (Plantago Ovata), Gandharva-Haritaki, Kutki (Picrorrhiza Kurroa), Abhrak-Bhasma, Praval-Panchamrut and Trivang-Bhasma. Iron Conception (Ferromagnetic Cancer Theory): CANCER is the generic term used to describe a group of disorders caused by an uncontrolled multiplication of cells; any cancer should be interpreted as intracellular superpara-ferri-ferromagnetic infection; intracellular molecules FeO;Fe2O3;Fe3O4 are the main 'creators' of intracellular superpara-, ferri- and ferromagnetic nanoparticles; any cancer can attack patients with/without iron overload and patients with iron-deficiency anemia.
Cancer researchers can use Ayurvedic treatment for hemochromatosis as Ayurvedic treatment for cancer because any cancer is a subtle iron disease. http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/166455.php ; http://www.earthclinic.com/cures/iron-overload.html ; Vadim Shapoval
I do not want to open a can of worms here... Just wondering if anyone else has found relief from any problems by becoming a regular blood donor? I have been donating on a regular basis for more than 6 years. I have noticed a decline in the number of headaches I get. Also... I tend to run a little rich in iron in my blood so regular blood donation also keeps that in check. I do not have a lot of health problems- but I notice I feel more "Up" after donating. I realize many of the issues that people on this site would exclude them from blood donation, but among those who can and do what has your experience been?

A late diagnosis of Hereditary Hemochromatosis left my liver, pancreas, heart, lungs and kidneys 'rusted' causing me to be extremely fatigued and in a lot of joint pain from too much iron being embedded in my bones and muscles. Coffee Enemas has enabled me to release the toxins and phlebotomies have helped my health go in a different direction (improvement). Dr. Max Gerson was a genius; thinking outside of the box. My husband has also begun his detoxification with fabulous results. Of course, all this has to be in conjunction with plant-based foods and juicing. Works for me!

I am an Afro-American woman in her 50s that has been diagnosed with non-herditary hemocromatosis but I also have very low hemoglobin levels so I cannot donate blood or have phlebotomies. I am not a drinker or drug abuser and never have been. I am getting worse and my doctor has done everything he knows to do. I go to a cancer center and they are very thorough and very knowledgeable but still of no help. I just wanted to let all of you know that I am so glad this site is here and am requesting any advice on what I can do to slow down iron absorbtion and raise my HgB levels at the same time. I appreciate any comments and offers of advice. God bless all of you and I look forward to hearing from you.
About iron and cancer.. The body's defence mechanism when pathogens, parasites or cancer cells are present is to withdraw iron from the blood and store it in ferritin molecules. This in turn shows up as low iron levels in the blood (anemia) Not to be alarmed, not all anemia is iron related, it can be brought on by low Vitamin B levels. When a blood test is required to measure iron in the blood it is a good safeguard to also have a serum ferritin check as well to measure how much iron is being stored!
Anyone of Celtic ancestry should have their ferritin levels checked in case they have the iron storage disease called hereditary hemochromatosis. This condition causes much misery and limited life span from such things as liver cancer, heart disease, stroke, diabetes2, arthritis and other health conditions. Males are affected sooner than females whose iron levels are reduced by their menses and childbirth. After menopause they soon catch up (which is why their rate for heart disease increases then). Statistics show that 0.5% to 1.5% of the population (depending on racial mix) can have the gene for this disorder. It runs in families and members who do not have the condition are likely carriers of the gene. We have all heard the stories of a man who died of cirhossis of the liver in spite of being an avowed tee-totaller, and the mourners at the funeral whispering how he must have been a secret drinker to have had such a disease!! Not so, poor man was a victim no doubt of hemochromatosis and the massive amount of iron stored in his liver.
I suffered from Hemochromatosis and have been having phlebotomies for almost 20 years. In the beginning I was having one pint depleted once a week. Then I got bad so quickly the started drawing two... Yes 2... Pints of blood a WEEK! This went on for over a year. Then once a week for several years.... Until I found ip6 [inositol hexophosphate]. Once I started taking it regularly, I didn't have to have a phlebotomy for 2 years! Not one treatment for two whole years! I stopped taking it for a while and recently started again. I'm having phlebotomies about 3x a year now and I'm happy and I thank God I'm alive! I hope this helps....

My granddaughter is only 5 days old. She was born Sat June the 15th. My granddaughter has a lot of things wrong with her, she had fluid on her spine, an enlarged liver and she had too be put on oxygen 100%. She did a lot of blood work on her and one thing they know for sure that she has a overload of iron in her system. They were able to treat the fluid around her spine and get her oxygen level down to 60 which is they said her oxygen level needs to be at 21 they are suspected that it may be hemochromatosis they did a mri and it didnt show really nothing so they did the biospy today and now waiting for those results. What do you think we are dealing with?

It can sometimes be a simple matter of adding a good Probiotic. Bacteria eats iron. It helps control iron levels in oceans. Sometimes iron is added to dead harbors and they team with life. I know people this has worked for where there have been transfusions coupled with antibiotic use and not much left that feeds on iron so the body stashes the iron is all.
My hemochromatosis reading was 2500, ferritan level very high, was having weekly phelabotomies, slowly coming down. Started to eat raw cabbage for a month and level had dropped to 175, still on cabbage and hemo level down to 33, ferriten level where it should be. Feel great now, no more phelabotomies.
Hi - I have haemocromatosis for the past 6 years and I now take cooked cabbage on a regular basis and must say that my ferritin levels as I speak are around the 30 mark!!!!
Cabbage and Hemachromatosis:
Some of you may notice I posted a question about this over a month ago and did not receive any replies.
Anyway, I post this hoping that it will really help others.
I was diagnosed with Hemachromatosis (non-hereditary) due to too many blood transfusions....and the blood transfusions were given years ago due to a mis-diagnosis.
So to get to the point, yes....I decided to try the cabbage to see if it would work. I ate 1/2 to 1 cup of raw cabbage a day (mostly in a vegan sandwich, and I do not eat much cooked food). I stayed consistent each day though.
You be the judge. My ferritin level in 1 month went from ...2000 to .....1596 in 3 weeks. I kid you not, and thank goodness this is without any phlebotomies. The nurses could not get my veins anymore, so I will keep on going. The doctors are scratching their heads right about now...lol. So please try it and tell me. I hope you get results too. ;-)
Well wishes to you all.

I was diagnosed with Hemochromatosis almost two years ago, and my ferreting levels were between 1500-2000 when I was first diagnosed. My MD was very concerned and ordered two phlebotomies per week for months until we began seeing the numbers go down. While I had been feeling run down prior to treatment, the blood draws were a disaster. I would be completely dysfunctional for 2-3 days following a blood draw, couldn't climb stairs, etc. And after several weeks, my ferreting numbers didn't move more than 50-100 points. Against my doctors (strong! ) orders, I stopped doing the blood draws.
After doing a LOT of research, I found that Wheat Grass is an iron chelator. So I began making a smoothie every morning with 1-2 scoops of organic Wheat Grass juice powder and a pea protein smoothie mix. And the numbers began coming down. Added to that, I began treatments 2-3 times a month with an acupuncturist who added two formulas she had discovered work well for this disorder... 1) Tao Hong Si Wu Tang and 2) Zuo Gui Wan. The wheatgrass plus the herbs... led to my numbers coming down over a 3-4 month period... to close to 300 (from 1800! ). And in the last six months, I have been in "normal" zone. And feel great!
And after lots of research, I disagree about no vit "C". Just don't take it within 3 hours of eating, so it doesn't add to the iron uptake from the food you eat. So I take mine before I go to bed, along with Magnesium and D3. Also take methyl B vitamins in the morning to support the liver.
