Hey, I am suffering from ITP (Idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura) since the age if 13 years, I am 26 now and I got heavy bleeding once my periods started, they did not stop until I take medicine. I was cotinuous bleeding.. my hb - 6.5. I feel so weak, but able to do daily work. My doctor gave me prednisolone.. by which my weight got increased but it did not work. Then doctor suggests for spelectomy. I get it done at the age of 15 .even then my platelet count does not increase till now, I got bruises on my body. Now , my gums also start bleeding , day and night.
It was very difficult to bear the heavy bleeding everytime. I got disappointed. Then I thought I should go for natural diet which majorly includes aloe vera juice. By which my gum's bleeding has stopedp and periods got lighter.
So guys, who all are suffering form this and low platelet count, , plz plz start taking aloe vera juice. it is bitter in taste but far more better than taking this tablets and surgery. Please start this and live a happy life.
Thanks a lot
I send you my deepest gratitude for Ted's borax remedy for parasites. I also used the baking soda in water to raise my pH and kill microbes. I was doing it for cancer and I did not care about much else. However, I had Werlhof's disease, commonly known as ITP (Idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura). I had already had a platelet transfusion. My platelet count is now in the middle range and I am thrilled by the surprise cure. This was initially an unexpected cure. I will repeat the borax in water treatment periodically to ensure I do not have a relapse. Thank you, Ted, all the participating people, and bless all that you do.
I developed ITP a few years back. I believe it was triggered by the 'fire season' we now experience where the air is so thick from fire pollutants that you feel like you can't breathe. I had pneumonia twice, back to back, after one particularly bad fire season. I also have malignant tumors on my instep of both feet which I have been trying to cure for years.
On this journey I discovered Borax/Boron. One of its MANY functions in the body is to balance the hormones by activating the parathyroid. It was after 10 months of taking Borax/Boron and many improvements in my body that I noticed that the red dots I had developed all over my body were fading and disappearing. I can now happily shave my legs and not worry that nicking one of these red dots will cause me to bleed for hours.
I should also add that I started taking Beet Crystals on a very sporadic basis as my taste buds desired. These crystals are like candy so I don't take them everyday. This combination has worked miracles for me in reducing and eliminating the red dots that I believe people should take as a warning sign.
Have a healthy happy life.
My dad has been suffering with itp since he was young. Over 30 years. Just recently he discovered that iron intravenously improved his condition. He had 3000 platelet count and low hemoglobin. Doctors kept giving him transfusions of blood and put him on prednisone. He got tired of it and asked Doctor for iron. The doctor said why? My dad said, "Trust me." He got 4 bags of iron weekly; his platelets were doubling every week. Doctor did iron plus monitoring his iron levels and blood. My dad normalized quickly bleeding and bruising healed. Look up iron deficiency and itp as well.
Even my dad is suffering from itp...from last 5 years
He is 51 now...
He was on steroids from last 4 years...
But now doctor gave him ayurvedic papaya leaf tablet 1100mg 3 times a day...
His platelets are 1.35 in 5 days..
No side effects of medicine....
Please try this....
Not long ago, there was a discussion on whether or not to take immune boosting supplements/herbs, etc. for autoimmune diseases. I have ITP, which is low platelet count for which they have never found a cause, but I have been told it is autoimmune. Dave from Fountain Inn, SC suggested that since acute ITP is viral caused, chronic ITP may also have a viral link. In the spring, my platelet count was 111K (normal range is 150K-400K) which was actually a really good number for me. In my last pregnancy, they dropped to 64K. (Immune system is suppressed somewhat in pregnancy so the body won't reject the baby. ) Anyway, I was wondering if my consumption of Coconut Oil in the last year or two was helping my platelets, because it is an anti-viral properties, and maybe there is a viral link.
Yesterday I had some bloodwork and my platelets were 128K! That is the best number I have ever had. (and 125K used to be considered the low normal. ) So, maybe I don't even have ITP anymore.
But it may be the extra virgin cold processed coconut oil alone isn't the only thing that has improved my numbers. (And I wasn't taking coconut oil for platelets, anyway. ) At the end of July I had a deer tick bite that was causing me extra symptoms. (We have lots of ticks and I have had many bites, but this one swelled worse and my lymph nodes were swelling, so I was suspecting it was a lyme carrying tick. ) Realizing that conventional protocol would have been a lot of testing with possible inconclusive results and an anti-biotic for a month, I decided to try natural things and see how things went. I took lots of GSE (grapefruit seed extract) and Astragalus Root daily for 6 weeks, to strenthen my immune system and kill off bacteria. It was just a guess, but I have been reading a lot by Stephen Buhner, a lyme expert who does a lot of natural things, and it seemed reasonable.
For anyone with ITP, I have read in a couple of places that papaya leaf is very good to help bring up the platelet count. I have never tried it, as while I have had low platelets for a long time, then haven't bothered me and it wasn't high on my list of priorities. It would be something to look in to.
So, I don't have any hard and fast conclusions, just an anecdotal story and some thoughts. I pass them along because maybe it will help someone else. We all benefit by the collective knowlege shared here.
Have a great day!

Treatment of 68yr old male with first occurance of purpura on hands & legs with the following: divided doses of vit-C powder as non-gmo sodium ascorbate, 3-4grams per dose, 3-times per day & citrus bioflavonoid complex 1-2 capsules, (700-1400mgs), with each dose of vit-C. Initially for 1-week, included yarrow tea, (may sub with tincture), & topical applications with natural vit-E mixed tocopherols, as needed. Purpura cleared in 1-week, all areas.
After the 2nd week, one spot returned. Suggested blood lab for platelet count & awaiting results. Consulted with licensed NMD who suggested possible chemical sensitivities panel such as ELISA, etc. Client unwilling to perform 'chem-sens' testing & possibly after platelet count results. I will advise results when confirmed.
Note: about 85% of vit-C is gmo corn based from China. Non-gmo is avail online or health food stores & labeled as such. Doses are based on bowel tolerance. If loose bowel, reduce dosage to comfort level. Sodium ascorbate is buffered, non-acidic, & will not affect "salt restricted diets" as no chlorides are present.
My daughter had ITP from age 5 to age 11. I read a posting in 2005 that a woman who had ITP started taking 1000 mg of vitamin C a day and got cured. As a desperate mother tired of seen her little girl cry every time she needed the infusions I decided to give it a try and give my daughter 500 mg of vitamin C everyday before her next appointment. The reason I choose to give her 500 mg of vitamin C over the 1000 mg a day the person suggested was because my daughter was not an adult.
The person who wrote the posting also mentioned that it was important to drink a lot of water in order not get kidney stones from the high dosage of vitamin C. To make a long story short when they check her platelet counts 10 days later they were normal. We went back a month later and she was fine. Up to this day I THANK GOD for that person who shared the information about the vitamin C cure for low platelet counts.
I pray that you will also find a cure. God bless you.
14 years ago my daughter at 10 years old had a sudden onset of ITP. Rushed to hospital in an ambulance her platelet count of 4 (normal minimum 150 - 400) I knew nothing about ITP and the medical staff at the hospital, she went in an ambulance, recommended an immediate splenectomy. I refused, as her father my responsibility was to get more advice before removing the spleen of my 10 year old.
The hospital gave her a cortisone injection with which she had trouble for many years. However, after much research the solution was really simple. A lack of Vitamin K.
So alfalfa sprouts, watercress, aloe arborescens being high in Vitamin K, gave her relief within 24 hours.
Go to the supermarket get and eat a bucket of alfalfa sprouts and it has fixed ITP like magic.
It occurred several time since and I have had to remind her that Vitamin K rich foods should be consistent in her diet.
