Aplastic Anemia is a disease of the Bone Marrow and Blood stem cells.
When the bone marrow fails to produce Red Blood cells, White Blood Cells and Platelets, the condition is known as Aplastic Anemia.
Bone Marrow is a soft, flexible spongy tissue that is present at the center of the Bones. Normally, there is a continuous production of stem cells in the bone marrow. The bone marrow contains 30 to 70% stem cells in it. But, in a person with Aplastic Anemia stem cells are replaced by fat.

Stem Cells are differentiated as Red Blood Cells, White Blood Cells and Platelets.
Red Blood Cells ( RBC or Erythrocytes ) : They are produced in the bone marrow and form 40% of Blood. They contain Hemoglobin. Hemoglobin is a red colored protein that gives red color to the Blood. Red Blood Cells circulate thoroughly throughout the body. They combine with both, oxygen and carbon dioxide. When we breath in, the hemoglobin combines with oxygen and forms oxyhemoglobin. Red Blood Cells provide oxygen to all parts of the body. Apart from this they are responsible for exhaling Carbon dioxide and other gases from the body. In short the Red Blood Cells are an important part of the body. If there is less production of RBCs the body organs will not get sufficient oxygen. The organs may die due to lack of oxygen. Hence it may cause life threatening disorders.
White Blood Cells ( WBC or Leukocytes ) : They are considered as a part of the Immune System. They fight against the foreign bodies and protect the body from Infections. A deficiency of White Blood Cells may cause the Immune system to go weak. This results in frequent illness.
Platelets ( Thrombocytes ) : They are important due to their coagulation factor. When we get some cut on the skin, Platelets combine with each other and block the blood vessels to prevent blood loss. If there is a deficiency of Platelets, it may cause further complications.
All three types of blood cells are very important and perform various functions. Their deficiency results in Aplastic Anemia and may cause life threatening problems.

Causes of Aplastic Anemia
Viral Infections
Autoimmune Disorders
Exposure to chemicals
Malfunctioning of Bone Marrow
Injury to the Blood stem cells

If it is not treated properly, Aplastic Anemia may cause
Permanent damage of Organs

Note : Do not get confused with Myelodysplastic Syndrome (MDS) and Anemia. With Myelodysplastic Syndrome (MDS) the function of bone marrow is impaired. It produces defective blood cells that get damaged soon.
In Anemia only Red Blood Cells are deficient. Where as in Aplastic Anemia all three types of blood cells are deficient.
Myelodysplastic Syndrome (MDS) and Anemia are dealt with separately on this portal.

Over the last year my blood-count has gone down. It is now(platelets-19) Heamoglobin 90 and the rest is low too.
Since I largely asymptomatic, (I function reasonably well) but your list of symptoms is spot on.
At the moment I am simply waiting till everything drops even more and then I get a 'horse serum' to 're-boot' the immune system. The reason being that my own immune system is killing my stemcells
Is there anything I can do before I undergo this 'brutal' treatment. Because of the toxicity my doctor postpones this as long as possible.
Is it an imbalance of the Th1 and Th2 cells? Is there a way to rebalance it? Any other suggestions?
I already am a vegetarian, eat fermented foods, get plenty of sun, exercise have good B12 and folate.
What more can I do

Hello Team,

I am from Mumbai, India.
My mother has very recently been diagnosed with Hypocellular Bone Marrow.
Doctors are terming her condition as Aplastic Anemia.

Her Blood Cell Count:-

Haemoglobin: 8.4
WBC: 4000
RBC: 2.6
Platelets : 28k

We have consulted a couple of hematologists and they have suggested the standard ATG Cyclosporine treatment for her.
However her general health is not good and we fear the ATG treatment might worsen her condition.
Also, I am afraid to say that we lack finances to go through with the ATG treatment and the subsequent treatment that might be required.

Could you please suggest some natural therapy for her betterment.

Dear Alankar
Right now her body is not ready to accept any medicine. We are suggesting her " Carcinocin 10M ". Get only one dose from a Homeopathy shop. This medicine will prepare her body to accept the rest of the medicines. Do not repeat the dose and study her symptoms for 2 weeks. Please let us know the rest of her symptoms and we will recommend her the next remedy.

I've had aplastic anemia for 6 years now and over the past year I've became transfusion dependent and the only options my hematologist have given me are to restart the ATG cyclosporine or bone marrow transplant. I am experiencing majority of the listed symptoms and my most recent lab results shown the following values: RBC 6.4 and platelets 2k. Kindly suggest the best remedy that will eradicate these symptoms and allow me to live a higher quality of life.

Dear Alicia
Have 1 glass of Green leaf juice 2 times in a day.
Also take Arsenic Alb 1M. Get one dose from a Homeopathy shop, add only 2 granules in a glass of water. Divide it into 3 doses and have it in a day.
Please let us know the symptoms after 15 days. So that we may recommend the next remedy accordingly.

It would not be possible for us to recommend any thing as she is already taking so many medicines. Also physical diagnosis is must.

I am a 20 year old diagnosed with Severe Aplastic Anemia. I am currently on the ATG-Cyclosporine-Eltrombopag course, but have had limited to no response to it. My doctor suggested a bone marrow transplant, but it will take a while before my siblings get screened. I will still be on the IST course until then. Other medications I take include antifungals, antivirals, and antibiotics, along with magnesium and folic acid supplements. I am mainly asymptomatic save for bleeding gums when my platelet count is low and shortness of breath when my Hgb drops. I currently visit the hospital twice a well and get platelets each time and blood at least once a week. What would you suggest?

My father aged 53yrs had been diagnosed with AA 5 years ago. Has already gone thru rabbit and horse ATG treatments. The first Atg lasted for 2 years then relapsed. 2nd Atg was done in Feb 2018. No signs of its affects so far. He is dependant on transfusions once a month. Currently he has developed necrosis on the hip joint due to steroid medications and sciatica in in right hip. Can you recommend treatment options for his AA.

Hi ,

I am Anusha from India. My father who is 65 . He has been diagnosed with Aplastic Anemia . He is suffering from 2 years. He is using cyclosporine and revolade. The treatment was working fine for one year but the Creatine level started increasing . But after stopping cyclosporine , Creatine came to normal. So doctor started cyclosporine again and then Creatine started increasing. It happened three times. So now we are confused and very worried. Please suggest herbal medicine for him.
