POSSIBLE CAUSES: Deficiency of Vitamin K – a group of fat-soluble vitamins that the human body requires for the synthesis of certain proteins needed for blood coagulation. Without vitamin K, blood coagulation is seriously impaired, and uncontrolled bleeding occurs; Deficiency of Vitamin C (without adequate vitamin C, the gum tissue becomes weakened and inflamed and the small blood vessels bleed more easily); Inadequate removal of plaque containing germs (bacteria) that make gums inflamed, irritated and bleeding when brushing. This is called Gingivitis and is the first stage of gum disease; Bleeding gums can be also triggered by the damage and inflammation caused by an autoimmune response in Periodontal Disease; Medications such as blood thinners (warfarin, aspirin, etc.), diabetes, using a hard toothbrush, etc.
EXTERNALLY: Apply Charcoal tablets between gums and teeth overnight, use Neem oil to brush your teeth and massage into the gums, grated or mashed raw Potato, Propolis drops, etc. Use only natural or homemade mouthwash (mint or sage tea with a drop of tea tree oil, etc.)
INTERNALLY: Vitamin K2 MK7 (200 mcg-500 mcg daily with meals) and Vitamin K1 (25-50mcg daily. However, if you are on blood thinners take not more than 10 mcg of K1), Vitamin C (1000mg 2-3 times daily with meals), Chlorella, Spirulina, Super Greens, good Multivitamin (containing at least 15mg zinc and 100mcg selenium), Vitamin D3 5000 IU every day after breakfast, Magnesium citrate powder (half teaspoon twice daily).
EAT MORE: Green leafy vegetable salads, smoothies or raw green juices. AVOID sugar, refined foods, white flour products, stimulants, aspirin, processed foods.
BLOOD IN THE URINE
BLOOD IN THE STOOL
– Vitamin K deficiency
– Vitamin C deficiency
– Dry air (when your nasal membranes dry out, they’re more susceptible to bleeding and infections).
– Nose picking
– Low platelet count may be the cause of frequent nosebleeds, bruises, trouble stopping cuts or wounds from bleeding or bloody gums.
– Very high blood pressure may cause nosebleeds
– Weakness of the smallest blood vessels – capillaries. The lining of your nose contains many tiny blood vessels that lie close to the surface and are easily damaged by chronic high blood sugar levels, statins and other cholesterol lowering drugs, etc.
– Anticoagulant (blood-thinning) medications, aspirin, and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS) used to treat pain can all cause nosebleeds.
– Sinusitis, flu and common cold
– Haemophilia (and other bleeding disorders)
– Blood thinners (anticoagulants), such as warfarin and heparin
– Nasal sprays
– Frequent nose-blowing can also irritate the lining of the nose, resulting in a nosebleed
– One of the most important nutrients to treat nose bleeding is Vitamin K: 100-200 mcg per day (take vitamin K2 MK7 based on fermented Natto). Vitamin K is naturally found in leafy green vegetables such as spinach or kale, as well as in Spirulina, Broccoli, Brussels sprouts, Cabbage, Cauliflower, Soybeans, Lettuce, Asparagus, Collard greens, Green peas, Parsley, Lentils, etc.
– Vitamin C (at least 2 times 500 mg with meals) prevents scurvy leading to excessive bleeding such as nose bleeds. Vitamin C is also important for strengthening blood vessels, including those found inside the nose. When they are week they can burst and cause nose bleeds.
– Bioflavonoids strengthen capillary walls and reduce their permeability. They also promote elasticity of capillaries and prevent damaging effect of free radicals. Herbs containing large concentrations of flavonoids include ginkgo biloba, hawthorn or bilberry. Also citrus fruits are high in bioflavonoids. However, proper supplementation usually gives better results.
– Rutin (500mg) 1 or 2 a day as Rutin (vitamin P) is the most important vitamin for the vain and capillary health.
– Take formulas with Silica.
– Horse Chestnut (Aesculus hippocastanum) helps reduce permeability of capillary walls and strengthens them by producing aescin, a compound which is able to seal the leaks in capillary walls. It is widely prescribed in Germany for weakened capillary walls.
– Use air humidifier at home.
– Often apply some raw organic coconut oil, propolis cream, comfrey cream, aloe vera gel, Vaseline, or vitamin E oil inside your nose.
– Vitamin B12 (must be sublingual methylcobalamin): 1000 mcg under the tongue after breakfast. Vitamin B12 deficiency is thought to be one of the leading nutrient deficiencies in the world. Its deficiency can contribute to neurological damage and weakness of capillaries.
– Folate (Vitamin B9) deficiency can cause low platelet counts. Instead of taking folic acid try to find supplements with L-methylfolate or often consume spinach, leafy greens and black-eyed beans.
– Decrease or eliminate alcohol, white flour products, dairy, hot spices, and sugar
– Detoxify your body by taking Chlorella every day before breakfast
– Vitamin D3 (5-10,000 IU per day) plays important role in the function of hematopoietic stem cells in bone marrow that produce platelets. You also must take magnesium as vitamin D leads to its deficiency.
