(Useful for Reducing nosebleeds, reducing heavy periods, planned optional surgery preparation, planned UFC fighting events.)
I have a very rare type II bleeding disorder. About 100 people in the nation have it. At least 13 of them are in my own family.
I used to get nosebleeds so bad they would “gush” or “stream” and not drip, and last for up to an hour, and I went to the emergency rooms several times, and got my nose cauterized several times for these bleeds. But not anymore.
So, over my lifetime, I have gathered a list of things that help stop bleeding, and a list of things that cause bleeding. Following the guidelines works for me, and it appears it works for all who have tried these methods. Things that stop bleeding, listed in my own perceived order of importance:
- Greens, leafy greens, these work especially well in smoothies, but salads would work, too. Greens contain Vitamin K, but greens work far better than Vitamin K. A green smoothie with about a cup of greens also contains about 1000 mg of Vitamin K, whereas most Vitamin K pills are only 500 mg. Greens are chelating, which means they remove minerals. We also need minerals for clotting, and those minerals are listed below.
- Cayenne Pepper. Black pepper also works, but not as much as cayenne.
- Vitamin C helps strengthen the walls of the blood vessels in the nose to help prevent bleeds from starting. But too much C can actually cause longer nosebleeds. I believe this happens because too much C can cause a deficiency of copper, which is also required to stop bleeding. I take between 1000 to 3000 mg vitamin C and between 0 to 30 mg of copper. 10mg of copper is the “tolerable upper human limit”, but I have had more success going above that. See here: https://revealingfraud.com/2019/07/silver-gold/high-copper-the-missing-nutrient-on-the-high-iodine-program/
- Copper. “In addition to preventing anemia, copper assists in blood coagulation” https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3226389/ Again, the reverse is true, too much copper can deplete Vitamin C and can therefore cause bleeding. The body needs both copper and vitamin C to form collagen and keep collagen strong and stop bleeding. The body needs copper and several B vitamins to convert iron into red blood cells, which also prevents anemia, and helps stop bleeding.
- Calcium. Low calcium is associated with bleeding. “Association Between Serum Calcium Level and Extent of Bleeding in Patients With Intracerebral Hemorrhage.” https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/27598746 “A low calcium level may be associated with a subtle coagulopathy predisposing to increased bleeding and might therefore be a promising therapeutic target”
- Iron. Anemics can have bleeding due to low red blood cell counts. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3068374/ However, Iron alone does not always solve Anemia. We need several other nutrients for the body to help use iron and turn it into blood cells. For the body to convert iron into blood cells, the body also needs copper. “In fact, anemia due to copper deficiency has been frequently reported in adults.3” https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3690345/ Copper, iron and calcium can all block the absorption of the other, the body needs all three in balance. The body also needs B12 and another B vitamin to convert iron into blood cells. “Vitamin B12 deficiency Anemia”. https://www.hopkinsmedicine.org/health/con12 ditions-and-diseases/vitamin-b12-deficiency-anemia Folate, and possibly a third B vitamin are also needed. I rarely take iron. I had high iron a few years ago. Men typically do. Because we don’t bleed much. But women bleed during their periods, and can end up low in iron as a result. My wife was low in iron, and when she began to take iron in addition to the other things on this list with regularity and diligence, her heavy periods stopped. This brings me to:
- B vitamins, B complex, including B12 specifically. When I started taking 5 B Complex vitamins a day, one of the things I noticed was far less bleeding. Like none! After a long search, I like “Doctor’s Best” brand of B vitamins. The reason is that they have a bit more B2, and the metholated form of B vitamins, and the price is good. I take both Doctor’s Best B complex, several a day, and a B12 supplement.
- Lavender essential oil
- Frankincense essential oil
- Myrrh essential oil
- Iodine and Boron. Both detox fluoride. Excess Fluoride (which causes iodine deficiency) can cause bleeding. Thanks to Melissa Gardner at her video 29:15 into it, she tells the story of getting nosebleeds after getting fluoride pills from her dentist at age 5. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5hN59MGHHW0&fbclid=IwAR27X46ITAiAHa8ix9D8UktjYxxBC7yxEu0kYnhIG6c_p0wc0_cHPqRy2JY Additional Sources: I went into my notes on fluoride, sure enough, it’s listed as Hemorrhage, not bleeding. https://poisonfluoride.com/pfpc/html/symptoms.html Her two sources are:
1) Meiers P – “Zur Toxizität von Fluorverbindungen, mit besonderer Berücksichtigung der Onkogenese”, Verlag für Medizin Dr. Ewald Fischer, Heidelberg (1984)
2) Waldbott GL, Burgstahler AW, McKinney HL – “Fluoridation:The Great Dilemma” Coronado Press (1978)
I recommend the high iodine protocol, here are my notes on iodine and boron: https://revealingfraud.com/2019/06/health/why-im-taking-iodine/https://revealingfraud.com/2017/10/health/boron/
I also take an expanded list of minerals, more than listed above. This list is found here: https://revealingfraud.com/2019/04/health/minerals-and-vitamins-im-actually-taking/
A few weeks after I updated this list, I also discovered that copper helps to detox fluoride!
Things that cause bleeding:
- Alcohol & sugar & white bread. They deplete minerals such as iron, calcium, and copper and B vitamins.
- Pain killers like Tylenol, Aspirin and Ibuprofen. They all cause bleeding, but doctors will say that Tylenol causes the least or no bleeding, or to take Ibuprofen, but neither is true. People die from bleeds from taking each of those. The mechanism by which they cause stomach bleeds is that each one depletes the copper, causing bleeding. Interestingly, two alternatives to pain killers are in the list above: greens and lavender. Another alternative to pain killers is DMSO sulfur which is also strongly anti inflammatory. But DMSO sulfur causes bleeding, whereas MSM sulfur does not. Other prescription drugs can also cause bleeding. Every prescription drug that you are taking should be carefully looked at to see if it causes bleeding as a side effect. If it’s a side effect, it’s not a “chancy” thing, it’s a sure thing.
- All mints; peppermint, wintergreen, spearmint, found in candy, tea, toothpaste, dental floss. This one is tricky and weird. Dentists push this flavor, which causes bleeding, right into your mouth where your gums are likely to bleed, then say that the bleeding is a sign of “infection”, when it might just be a reaction to the mints! One time, I had no nosebleed for nearly a year, and I decided to test a cup of peppermint tea. The next day, I had a nosebleed!
- Mentholatum, menthol and methyl salicylate all cause bleeding. This is useful for breaking up bruises and breaking up blood clots, and because of that it usually used in body rubs such as Ben Gay, or Tiger Balm. Also used in Vicks vapor rub, or Vicks cough drop candies. As a bleeder, who got bad bruises, I found these very useful at first. But if you continue to use these products, and then do things that cause bleeding or bruising, the bruising can get very, very bad.
- Clove, clove supplements, clove essential oils. Also found as an alternative to mints, in some toothpastes.
- Eucalyptus causes bleeding. A friend of mine was introduced to this. I said no more than every other day. He began using it three times a day on his arms, simply because he liked the smell. Soon, he began to have red bleeds under the skin that looked like tattoos. It took a while to discover what was causing the problem, but we did.
- Camphor. Camphor essential oil. Camphor lip balm. These cause bleeding, too. Like mentholatum, menthol, and methyl salicylate, camphor creates a cooling sensation, and is also indicated for tired muscles, healing and breaking up a bruise. So, it breaks up clotting (bruise), thus causing bleeding.
- Blood thinners. Both natural and prescription. Garlic can cause bleeding. But what is far worse is warfarin. Warfarin is rat poison.
- Medications. Read the side effects. If it says “causes bleeding”, there you go.
