Blood Platelets Level
Quote from the book Ministry of Healing by E. G. White “Our bodies are built up from the food we eat. There is a constant breaking down of the tissues of the body; every movement of every organ involves waste, and this waste is repaired from our food. Each organ of the body requires its share of nutrition. The brain must be supplied with its portion; the bones, muscles, and nerves demand theirs. It is a wonderful process that transforms the food into blood and uses this blood to build up the varied parts of the body” page 122
Genesis 1:29: “And God said, “see, I have given you every herb that yields seed which is on the face of all the earth, and every tree whose fruit yields seed; to you it shall be for food.”

How to Raise Blood Platelet Level Naturally
If you suffer from low blood platelet amounts, you may be putting your body at risk if you have a cut or break in your skin. Platelets are the tiny cells that help to form a clot in your blood, thus stopping the cut from bleeding. Each platelet sticks to another platelet as well as the damaged blood vessel's wall, which forms a clot. A normal platelet amount is anywhere from 150,000 to 450,000 units per cubic millimeter of blood. If you have a sufficient number of platelets, you are at a lower risk of hemorrhaging. Although there are pills, and medications you can take and procedures you can undergo, you can also learn how to raise blood platelet level naturally.
Know the causes of a low platelet count. These causes may include pregnancy and childbirth, hemorrhages, reduced production and increased breakdown of platelets, autoimmune diseases, and bacteria in the blood. Other instances such as cancers, chicken pox, and radiation may reduce the productions of platelets. Other instances such as cancers, chicken pox, and radiation may reduce the productions of platelets. Platelets already in the blood can be destroyed by medications, lupus, and rheumatoid arthritis.
Consume the correct types of food. Try to eat fresh fruits and vegetables, and organic options are better for you and your platelet count. Berries, green leafy vegetables, oranges, tomatoes, beet root, pumpkin, sour sop, kiwis can help increase your platelet levels.
Stay away from specific unhealthy foods. These foods include processed foods, refined sugars, and junk food. Also stay away from alcohol and caffeinated beverages. Partaking in these foods and drinks can cause your platelet count to drop even further because they may hamper production by the bone marrow.
Ingest foods that contain omega-3 fatty acid. Fish is the main source of the heart disease-fighting omega-3 fats eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), but some plant-based foods also contain omega-3 in the form of alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), which also helps heart health. Examples of these types of food include flax seeds, Chia seeds, Walnuts, soy foods, pumpkin seeds which are good sources of ALA and lignans. Foods high in omega-3 fatty acid foods boost your immune system and can naturally increase your platelet level count. Algae – (dulse, kelp – sea vegetables) is a source of DHA omega 3’s that even vegans find suitable, and can be purchased as a supplement product. After all if you think about it – where did the fish get its source of EPA? – From the sea vegetables of course!!
Drink warm-temperature water. Cold water can slow down your digestive track, which can impact your body's way to absorb nutrients. Blood cells are made of water and protein, so if you drink more water, you will produce more blood cells. Drink two glasses of water upon awaking in the morning. And try to consume at least 8 glasses of water per day – never eat and drink at the same time, so have your water half hour before a meal and then two hours after your meal.
Obtain enough sleep and rest. Try to get at least 7 to 8 hours of sleep per night. The rest can help your body to recharge and produce more platelets. And get to sleep before 10 p.m. – the hours of sleep before 12 midnight are the best for restoration of the body.
Exercise - Perform strength-training exercises and cardiovascular workouts to help the blood flow within your body. These exercises can increase your body's immune system. Avoid contact sports because injuries can result in bleeding
Sunshine - Boost immunity - Researchers have discovered that vitamin D is integral to proper function of the body’s T cells— the immune system’s first line of defense. What exactly makes vitamin D so important to our health? Quite simply, it directly and indirectly influences most of what happens in our bodies every second of every day.
To understand, you have to shift your thinking a bit. Vitamin D isn’t actually a vitamin. Rather, it’s a hormone precursor that our biological ancestors made from being in the sun. When exposed to UV rays, a chemical cousin of cholesterol in the skin converts to vitamin D, which travels to the liver and is changed to the pre-hormone calcidiol. Calcitriol (the actual hormone) attaches to more than 2,700 sites on the human genome, and it turns on more than 1,000 genes, prompting them to do their jobs.
Creighton University’s Robert P. Heaney, MD, points out that vitamin D is a key part of the biochemical machinery that opens up our entire genome, so cells can tap into the vast information it contains. In a remarkable feat of biology, individual cells synthesize calcitriol, which then turns around to regulate those cells’ activities. It’s these fundamental roles of vitamin D that affect our risk for so many different diseases. In fact, says Heaney, “Vitamin D probably affects every disease.”
Vitamin D has long been recognized as essential for normal bone formation, largely because it is essential for calcium utilization. Numerous studies have shown that the majority of seniors hospitalized for hip fractures are deficient in vitamin D.
In 1980 epidemiologists reported that low vitamin D levels were associated with a greater risk of developing colorectal cancer. Since then, researchers from around the world have linked low vitamin D levels to a higher risk of breast, ovarian, kidney, pancreatic and aggressive prostate cancer.
Would vitamin D supplements or greater sun exposure help protect against these cancers? The answer is yes, according to research by Cedric F. Garland, DrPH, of the University of California, San Diego. Garland and his colleagues calculated that the incidence of colon cancer in the United States and Canada could be cut in half if people took 2,000 IU of vitamin D daily and that women would reduce the incidence of breast cancer by half if they took 3,500 IU of vitamin D daily.
The evidence is particularly strong when it comes to vitamin D’s role in resisting infection, maintaining bone and muscle, and reducing cancer risks.http://www.care2.com/greenliving/top-3-benefits-of-vitamin-d.html

TRUST IN GOD – it is God who made our bodies and he knows what is best to keep us healthy. “God desires us to reach the standard of perfection made possible for us by the gift of Jesus Christ…….. God pledged Himself to keep this human machinery in healthful condition if the human agent will obey His laws……. Every human law governing the human machinery is to be considered just as truly divine in origin, in character, and in importance as the word of God” – Counsels on Diet and Foods, p 16-17. Disease is an effort of nature to free the system from conditions that result from a violation of the laws of health. In case of sickness, the cause should be ascertained. Unhealthful conditions should be changed, wrong habits corrected. Then nature is to be assisted in her effort to expel impurities and to re-establish right conditions in the system. M H pg 44.
