Living With Hemophilia

A Natural Approach To Health


Living With Hemophilia

I had a question the other day about hemophilia.

Hemophilia refers to a group of inherited disorders that cause abnormal bleeding.

The bleeding occurs because part of the blood — called plasma — has too little of a protein that helps blood clot.

Symptoms of hemophilia range from increased bleeding after trauma, injury, or surgery to sudden bleeding with no apparent cause.

There are two types of hemophilia:

 >Hemophilia A — also called classic hemophilia — is most common and occurs in about 85% of people with hemophilia.

>Hemophilia B — also called Christmas disease — is less common and occurs in about 15% of people with hemophilia.

Hemophilia A

Hemophilia A results from too little of a plasma protein called factor VIII, which helps blood clot.

The greater the deficiency, the more severe the symptoms.

>Mild hemophilia: 5% to 25% of the normal factor VIII level.

>Moderate hemophilia: 1% to 5% of the normal factor VIII level.

>Severe hemophilia: Less than 1% of the normal factor VIII level.

Most people who have hemophilia A have moderate or severe symptoms.

Hemophilia B

Hemophilia B results from too little of a plasma protein called factor IX, which helps blood clot.

As in hemophilia A, hemophilia B can be mild, moderate, or severe. The greater the deficiency, the more severe the symptoms.

If there’s a family history of hemophilia, specific tests can be done from an umbilical cord blood sample to see if a newborn infant has hemophilia.

In fact, if the family desires, testing can be done before a child is born.

To deal with hemophilia it’s beneficial to:

*Drink 6-8 cups of purified water daily to hydrate and flush toxins.

*Review my post on keeping clean on the inside.

*Breathe easier; purify indoor air.

*Increase essential fats (flax oil, olive oil, Omega-3 oils).

*Consume a 50% raw food diet:  lots of fresh, raw fruits and veggies (organic when possible).  Include fresh juicing.

*Consider liver and colon cleanses.

*Increase exercise, deep breathing, relaxation, stress release.

*Increase fresh air, sunshine, connect to nature, adequate rest.

*Deal with any underlying emotional issues.

*Consider skin brushing, Epsom salt baths, hydrotherapy.

*Ensure regular (2 per day) bowel movements.

*Decrease toxic exposures of all kinds.

*Investigate and eliminate “hidden” allergies/sensitivities.

*Decrease or eliminate any and all hydrogenated, trans fats, and deep-fried foods.

*Decrease or eliminate sugar-laden foods, white flour products, simple carbs.

*Decrease or eliminate processed, instant, chemical-laden, “lifeless” foods.

*Decrease or eliminate smoking, alcohol, coffee, soda pop, processed juices.

*Become educated about all possible side effects and detrimental influences of any medications or treatment procedures you are taking or considering.

*Research and address underlying Candida issues.

*Avoid MSG and artificial sweeteners as they are neurotoxins.

*Explore dental amalgam toxicity.

*Consider “green drinks”.
