There is a large body of research on glutathione, common blood diseases, and the heart.
Blood diseases are abnormalities in the number, shape and or structure of the blood cells, called erythrocytes. There are several ways to categorize these diseases. Many of the classifications overlap.
This section will not focus on the many types of blood diseases. There are many more than we have space to cover.
For those facing health problems in which there are no answers to be found or those looking for alternatives, our purpose is to show the relationship of glutathione in the disease process. Sometimes there is no direct studies linking glutathione with the blood disease. However, looking at the research will allow, in some instances, a connecting of the dots to find solutions.
It will still be necessary to coordinate care with your doctor.Common Blood Diseases
Red Blood Cell Abnormalities
Some common blood diseases are the result of blood cell membrane being too rigid or abnormalities in the proteins that cover the membrane.
The cell membrane can be leaky allowing substance to escape or penetrate the cell walls.
Abnormalities in the structure and function of the hemoglobin.
An excessive amount of red blood cells and sometimes increases in other blood cells.
Anemia, the lack of oxygen carrying ability is one of the most common blood diseases. There are several types.
Folic acid deficiency
Red Blood Cell Disease: Genetic Blood Diseases
Lack of a certain enzyme which disrupts the metabolism. Deficiencies of this kind have a genetic origin.White Blood Cell: Disease and Abnormalities
Many blood born disease, genetic blood disease, blood disorders and lymphocyte disorders have a relationship to glutathione levels and the progression of disease. Even the rare blood disease has some research that looks at glutathione. The rare disease often requires mining the data out of the studies in order to find the evidence.
Blood Metabolic Derangement's
Blood Disorders Diseases
Disorders of Cell Proliferation
Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura or ITP blood disease affects the blood platelets.
Diseases of cell proliferation or cell production include Leukemia, a group of cancers of blood forming tissues.
Polycythemia Vera The overproduction of red cells or of platelets (essential thrombocytosis) can result in malignancy. It is also a toxin associated blood disease (see below.) In both cases, NAC is recommended by numerous health care professionals for the management of the disease.
Myelodysplastic syndromes have ineffective production of one or more cell lines.
Disorders of Coagulation or Blood Clotting
Blood Transfusion Related Complications
Hemophilia, a genetic disorder that results in dysfunction of one or more of the clotting mechanisms. An otherwise minor wound could be life threatening. Often this results in bleeding into joints which can cripple.
Disorders of the platelets or insufficient platelets can result in a coagulopathy or bleeding disorder. Disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC), also known as consumptive coagulopathy is one of the complications.
Hypercoagualable state (thrombophilia) is the result of a defect in the regulation of platelets or clotting factor function and cause thrombosis.
Blood Born Common Blood Diseases
Autologous Blood Transfusion Risks
Blood Transfusion Errors
Blood Transfusion Reaction: another transfusion problem.
Blood born diseases are spread by contamination of blood.
Common types include HIV, hepatitis, and viral hemorrhagic fever.
Diseases transmitted by insect or other vector are called vector-borne disease. Most common include West Nile virus and malaria. Once a person is infected and their blood is transfused into another, the blood causes a blood born disease.
Vector-Born Blood Disease
Here you will find doctors treatment protocols and patient management protocols based on WHO guidelines but for holistic health practitioners.
Blood not only gets infected but it can also transmit infection. The HIV virus which causes Aids is transmitted by contact with blood, semen or other body secretions of an person who is infected.
Hepatitis B and C, D, E, G, H, I, TT, Sma 1 are transmitted primarily through blood contact or transfusions. Blood, blood products and bloodstained objects are treated as a bio hazard.
Bacterial infection of the blood is bacteremia or sepsis. Viral Infection is viremia. Malaria and trypanosomiasis are blood-borne parasitic infections.
TTV - Transfusion Transmitted Virus
Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease (CJD)
Chronic Wasting Disease (New Mad Cow Disease)
KS and HHV-8 Kaposi’s sarcoma (KS) and herpes virus-8 (HHV-8)
Bacterial Contamination of Blood Products
Infectious Disorders of Blood
Blood Toxins: Blood Diseases
A chemical that causes damage to or disease in the blood or harms blood production. Blood toxins, known as hematopoietics, can prevent the blood from carrying oxygen to cells.
Polycythemia Rubra Vera (PV). There is now evidence that PV is caused by exposure to toxins.
Gasoline Related Blood Disease Many common toxic substances can cause blood born disease. Consider this look at three men who were exposed to gasoline for much of their life. In later life, they all developed gasoline related blood diseases.
The chemical exposure was considered to be the reason.
Did we miss one of the common blood diseases? Please let us know and we will try to include it. Please be patient as we add to the body of evidence based research here. There are numerous other common blood diseases we have yet to cover here.
Red Blood Cell Disease: Genetic Blood Diseases
Lack of a certain enzyme which disrupts the metabolism. Deficiencies of this kind have a genetic origin.
White Blood Cell: Disease and Abnormalities
Many blood born disease, genetic blood disease, blood disorders and lymphocyte disorders have a relationship to glutathione levels and the progression of disease. Even the rare blood disease has some research that looks at glutathione. The rare disease often requires mining the data out of the studies in order to find the evidence.Will Boosting Glutathione Build Blood?
There are specific studies that show this to be true. However, anecdotal evidence points to this benefit. In several studies where the lab reports are included, there was a corresponding increase in RBC, even when the patients were presenting with anemia prior to surgery.
The building blocks to boost glutathione can come from both natural and chemical supplements and foods.
Learn how to Raise Glutathione to Help Common Blood Diseases
We are undergoing a major renovation. Please use a hardhat upon entering. After all, your good health is our concern.
Please be on the watch for dangling participles.
Use caution not to trip over run on sentences.
There is a full time spelling crew. Report any misspelled words and we will send the crew out to make the needed corrections.
Oh yea, and please return to see new information on common blood diseases by boosting your glutathione.Simple Blood Booster
One table spoon of Black Strap Molasses and one table spoon of natural peanut butter. In the hospital, we have seen as much as 0.3 g/dl in 24 hours. This is about 1/3 of a unit of blood. With patients up to their early 50's and no arthritis, this always worked.
If you have a sulfa allergy, get unsulfured black strap molasses.
A simple solution for a common blood disease, anemia.
Glutathione has a high affinity for water. Simply put, if we are dehydrated our bodies may not make as much as they could. Or, what we do make may be less effective.
Usually there is something more wrong that just being dehydrated. Often there is a condition called fluid and electrolyte imbalance, less than bodies needs. There is a simple, easy and inexpensive way to correct this, allowing your body to produce even more GSH
The Water Cures Protocol really works. Give it a try today.
It is simple, easy and sustainable;e and affordable (the salt should cost less than $10 a year).
And like GSH, it will help with over 76 different diseases and conditions.
