Abnormal low hemoglobin -5.0 in sickle cell infant

My son has abnormally low hemoglobin counts due to his blood disorder (anemia) - Sickle Cell SS (most svere form). We give him a plethora of iron based (heme) foods but nothing seems to boost his levels other than a blood transfusion and too many of these have other impact (iron overlooad, stress on organs, etc). Any suggestions? The doctors have no suggestions other than to transfuse. He is 3.4 years old. Thanks

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
You can use Arnica 6c in the Wet dose taken twice daily and report if it helps your son. Arnica has some mysterious quality in filtering and improving the blood and it is my hope that it can also help him.

Ferr Phos 6x is another remedy that will help the oxygen carrying capacity of the blood and you can give him 2 tablets thrice daily.

I have 2 boys who are using it for another ailment Hemophilia and their parents have reported that they do not bleed anymore after a cut injury.

I hope that it can also help your son. Please follow the instructions below carefully to make the Wet dose:

The Wet dose of any Homeopathic remedy is made up as follows:

Order the remedy in a 5ml Ethanol pack also known as Liquid Dilution.
Get a 500ml bottle of Spring Water from the nearest supermarket.
Pour out about 3cm of water from the bottle to leave some airspace.
Insert 3 drops of the remedy into the bottle and shake it hard to produce bubbles.
This is homeopathic succussion and must be done every time before a capful of the bottle which is the dose is sipped as directed.

Please report progress weekly.

'I have 2 boys who are using it for another ailment Hemophilia and their parents have reported that they do not bleed anymore after a cut injury. '

What I wished to convey is that I am currently treating 2 boys who are both Hemophiliacs and who are both taking Arnica 6c in the Wet dose AND Ferr Phos 6x daily. They have responded in a manner that can be considered as very promising as they do not have to be rushed to hospital every time they have a bruise or a cut.

I feel confident that this same therapy can help the little boy who is afflicted with Sickle Cell Anemia.

Patients who present this disease Sickle Cell Anemia are very rare and if my therapy does work and the little boy does not have to be given regular Blood Transfusions, it will be another great advance for 'Joepathy'.

Thx Joe for the response. I wish you will in your treatments and should you ever hear of anything else that may be helpful in my case, please remember me.

As you are no doubt aware, medical science does not have any therapy to treat Hemophilia, Sickle Cell Anemia and also other diseases that affect the blood like Thalassemia and even Primary Amyloidosis.

I believe that I have discovered the therapy for Hemophilia which is not a cure but is easily the equivalent to the Hemofil M used to provide SOS IV treatment for boys who suffer from any injury that causes bleeding.

Sickle Cell Anemia, as I stated in my last post, is another of those very rare diseases which affect the blood and it is my hope that Arnica can help your son.

It is important that you report his response from time to time to enable me to keep track of his progress under the therapy I have prescribed.

Please send me an email to my address which you will find in my profile to enable me to be in contact with you in the future.

I do agree with dr.joe and also recommend ferr. phos-6x. However I do not have any experience in using Arnica in such cases.

I hope that you realize that I too do not have any prior experience in prescribing Arnica for Sickle Cell Anemia.

I do have 2 cases of Hemophilia which have responded magnificently to Arnica 6c and I would like the mother of this 3 year old to also use it and report his response as this is the only way that I can evaluate whether it can be used for this disease which is due to some misalignment of his genes for which there is no known cure.

If it does work, it can be considered as an epic in the treatment of Sickle Cell Anemia and I am looking forward to the mother's report in due course.

Hello All,

Just wanted to post an update for you.
This is Adrene, the mother of the 3 -year old son with Sickle Cell SS. I have been steadily using the Arnica (dilution) along with ferrum phosphate and unfortunately there has been little change. That is not to say it won't work over time, however, in the interim he will have to get transfused propmptly due to his levels plummeting again to his baseline of 5.0. Our immediate concern
of course is how hard his heart has to work to compensate for the low HG levels.

No one has been able to successully analyze the story of his blood and reasons why certain iron-infused foods seemingly has little to no impact on boosting his HG levels (ie beet, leafy greens, red meat,etc).

Is there something I should switch up or try a stronger remedy? I currently have Arnica Montana 6c?

To Adrene

It is still early days in the therapy I prescribed on July 6 and I feel confident that we can expect some improvement in your son's condition soon.

I would like to increase the frequency of the Arnica 6c in the Wet dose to thrice daily and increase the Ferr Phos 6x tablets to 3 taken thrice daily. You may give the tablets dissolved in water if he resists dissolving them on his tongue.

Please report his response regularly preferably weekly and do not stop the other medication and drugs you are now giving him.
