High platelets (thrombocytosis)

Platelets (thrombocytes) are small cytoplasmic fragments that circulate in the blood and whose function is to form blood clots, i.e. they help the blood to the coagulation process to maintain a balance in the cardiovascular system and prevent bleeding when injured, forming blood clots that help to stop bleeding while the damaged vessel is repaired.

When the number of platelets is too low could result in excessive bleeding, and if the platelet count is too high it will come together to form blood clots that can potentially cause what is known as thrombosis, which occurs when blood vessels become clogged by clots causing severe reactions as stroke, myocardial infarction, pulmonary embolism, or blockage in any part of the body.

Any imbalance or platelets disease is called thrombocytopathy, which can be either a reduced number of platelets (thrombocytopenia), a deficit in function (thrombasthenia) or an increase in the number (thrombocytosis).

Platelets are produced during the process of blood cell formation (thrombopoiesis) in bone marrow. The physiological range of platelets is of 150-400 x 109/litre. A platelet has a life of 7 to 10 days, and a healthy adult produces 1 x 1011 platelets per day. This production is regulated by a hormone called thrombopoietin, which is usually secreted by the liver and kidneys. Platelets are destroyed by phagocytosis in the spleen and Kupffer cells in the liver. The spleen stores a number of platelets, which are released when needed by splenic contraction, regulated by the sympathetic nervous system.

Thrombocytosis (high platelets)

Thrombocytosis, as explained, is the increase of platelets in the blood. The causes of increased platelets may be:

  • Infections (most common cause: viral, bacterial, etc.)
  • Poor diet and
  • Iron deficiency, anemia (due to poor diet and poor absorption of iron or lack of it)
  • Nephrotic syndrome
  • Trauma
  • Tumors
  • Kawasaki disease
  • Splenectomy post-syndrome

Emotional causes

High platelets are related to factors such as stress, anxiety and depression, attitudes that create wear and imbalances both in the nervous system and throughout the body. Anxiety or depression, in this case, can be generated by a failure to fin deep hapinness in life, closing the way to feel joy only with fixed or obstinate ideas.

Natural Remedies

The body has its own self-healing capacity, designed to self regulate and self-repair, you only need to be given the necessary elements to return to the state of balance and optimal performance.

Medicinal Food 

A diet is the foundation of all healing process as it helps the body repair damaged tissue, nourish and invigorate organ systems, and removing stagnant toxic and unnecessary stuff in the intestines which impairs the blood throughout the body, causing a number of imbalances that are known as diseases.

It is necessary to maintain a high quality diet, trying to avoid all products containing sugar or refined flour products based on cow's milk, refined grains lack any nutritional value as well as junk food like soda, fast food, sausages and red meat, which only hinder the functioning of the body, filling it with toxic matter and acidifying the blood.

What foods help to regulate high platelets?

  • You must include in the diet 2 liters of pure water per day, beginning the day drinking on an empty stomach a glass of warm water with a squeezed lemon.
  • Include Omega oils that nourish the nervous system. Extra virgin olive oil, oily fish and whole grains are very beneficial.
  • Shiitake fungus is one of the best natural remedies for this condition.
  • Consumption of raw garlic, aloe juice, seeds of grapes, oranges, plums and papaya are very beneficial in the diet. You should eat for day only a fruit such as papaya and grapes.

Other natural remedies

  • In addition to diet, you should consider exercise, as exercise helps to circulate blood, oxygen, and vitalize, helping to distribute nutrients evenly throughout the body.
  • Acupuncture, reflexology and bioenergy are therapies that help regulate the smooth flow of energy in the body, they serve as strong support for a healing process.
  • The emotional attitudes are important, often essential. People can come to heal simply by changing their ways of acting and thinking.

i was diagnoised with thrombosis. my platlelet level is so high i could have a stroke at anytime. the doctors all want me on agrylin. the migraine headaches and all the pain i have in every bone and joint makes it hard to function everyday.taking that poison is like slowly killing yourself. i hear they can take blood out spin out platlets and put back. why is this not offered. oh yeah the government wouldnt make the the millions they do cuz something as easy as spinning out platlets wont make them any money. i know im dying from it at 60 years old. been denied my ss . took the meds for 12 years had 28 major surgeries and i believe the poison caused 90 percent of organ failure.our government has failed us. there are so many cures that have been hidden from us so the drug companies can get riches. been reading articles about people being killed and their files being distroyed for a super molecule that could heal your body without drugs.i know my days are short and its heartbreaking not to be able to explain to my family because i never let them know the pain. to my 3 children 9 grandchildren and my 5 greatgrandchildren. and my husband who has been there thru everything i never want them to ever know how much pain im in.till i just die and this pain can end.

Is it possible to have this because of a partner who has the same problem? I was surprised to know when I had my check up that my platelets are high. My gf has this and I was suspecting she might have passed it to me.

l never had any problems with my health physically. However about 10yrs ago l was suffering depression due to personal issues. A friend suggested l go visit her doctor. After chatting with him about my history he 'thought' l had bi-polar so he prescribed lithium. l took it for about a two-three weeks had also tried previously other antidepressants before this drug but quit a short time into them bcs l couldnt handle the side effects. Oneday maybe several months or less after l went to another doc he did blood tests and found l had a high platelet count it was 1500 shouldve bn arnd 400. l was gobsmacked never before had l ever had a high platelet count. l wasn't on any meds by then so l thought the only thing l did differently wS taking Lithium. l had found out after the fact the doctor should have taken a blood test bfore prescribing the drug and regular weekly or fortnightly tests from then on. My platelet count last l checked about a year ago was 600. l will definitely get more seriously involved in a healthy diet and products. Thanks for the info :)

My husband has been on Effient do to a recent hear attack. It caused his lower back to ache lik crazy. We discovered by supplementing enough BCAA's the back pain went away. I don't know if this will help you, but it might be worth looking into to.

I was diagnosed with MDS in September 1999 and given 3 years to live. Was prescribed hydroxyurea and got horrible non healing leg ulcers. After 5 years of that I took myself off hydrea and was prescribed agrilyn. Was in cardiac ICU 3 times with congestive heart failure and then I took myself off that. Was prescribed interferon for 2 years and took myself off that. All these drugs caused severe side effects. I was on morphine for 5 years for the pain of the ulcers. Vicodin 5 years more. I am now totally drug free. No prescription or over the counter. Researching for natural solutions to high platelet and white blood cell counts. What galls me is that the doc is still trying to push poisonous drugs on me. I've been using some of the suggestions on this site and am going to include the rest. Been to several naturopaths and they are stumped, so basically doing my own doctoring.

My mom just recently been diagnosed with high platelets and her Dr suggested for her to take Hydrea... she was very sick from it after only few days. She couldn't even get out of bed..it was like she had a very bad flu. Dr stopped the Hydrea and then put her on Agrylin and it almost killed her...she passed out from it and had irregular heart beats, thank God its back to normal. The Dr said she must return back to Hydrea but she is afraid because how bad she felt from it. She feels great when not on any medications but the problem still exists and it's killing me daily because I feel like there is nothing I can do to help. Please can anyone suggest any herbal remedies??? She eats very healthy..she juices daily and walks and is so full of life for her age. Please help!

Is thrombosis in any way related to cardiovascular disease as well? Really good article by the way. It was very thorough, providing both dietary and emotional causes, and I'm glad to see tips and advice as well. As far as the shitaki fungus goes, I've never seen it in the stores before. I haven't necessarily been looking for it either, but can you buy it in any supermarket, or are there special shops to go to? Perhaps the Asian grocery?

Hi, I have thrombocytosis and the doctor put me on Hydroxyurea which
has a lot of serious side effects. My WBC and RBC's are also low due to the Hydroxyurea. That is why I am looking for natural treatments. I will try
to do your recommendation and will give you a review.

Thank you , George Vandulek
