Hi!! I'm Addison. My mom was telling me about acupuncture and how she heard that it had helped some people with ITP get their platelets to a higher level, and I was wondering if anyone here has tried it and if so if it helped them at all. Thanks so much!!!
Also right now instead of treatments, I'm going the natural route, and I'm taking papaya leaf extract, and that has boosted my levels from 20k two weeks ago to 34k this week, and my platelets never raise on their own. So I'm just saying it could be something to try if nothing is working for you.
Anyway, thanks so much! Please tell me if you have tried acupuncture!
