We Are All Connected: Thalassemia

I write this as I have a person close to me who is heading out to MD Anderson in Texas — and I notice at http://www.mdanderson.org/patient-and-cancer-information/care-centers-and-clinics/childrens-cancer-hospital/diseases-treatment/cell-therapy.html that “MD Anderson offers cell therapy for other life-threatening childhood disorders:

Severe aplastic anemia
Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome
Severe combined immunodeficiency
Sickle cell anemia
Thalassemia
Amegakaryocytic thrombocytopenia
Inborn errors of metabolism

I was moved by a young woman, yesterday, at a blood drive in my workplace … when she came over to some of us who had donated blood and introduced herself as someone who has been receiving repeated transfusions of blood, since childhood, due to the manifestation of thalassemia in her body …

She was saying that, without blood donors, there would be no blood transfusions.

All the spiritual people I have been learning from, and cited on this blog, say in one form or another either that “We are all one” or “We are all connected.” I can only say: Here is a new demonstration {for me} that we ARE all connected … in more ways than one …

Thalassemia

Thalassemia, or Mediterranean anemia, was first described in 1925 by a Detroit physician who studied Italian children with severe anemia (low levels of red blood cells), poor growth, huge abdominal organs, and early childhood death. In 1946, the cause of thalassemia was found to be an abnormal hemoglobin structure. The body reacts by destroying red blood cells, causing anemia. To compensate for the loss, the body tries to make red blood cells more rapidly, causing other thalassemia complications, such as bone abnormalities and spleen enlargement.

In the 1960s, doctors treating thalassemia patients started to transfuse them with fresh red blood cells every month. This alleviated most of the childhood symptoms and led to a major improvement in survival. It is still used as a treatment today. However, since blood contains large amounts of iron, which the body cannot eliminate naturally, most patients died in their teenage years from damage caused by too much iron. Researchers later found that excess iron could be removed from the body by treatment with a drug called desferoxamine. This drug prevented iron-induced heart disease and helped patients live much longer. Recently, two oral drugs have become available to remove iron. They have dramatically improved the quality of life of patients with iron overload from transfusions for thalassemia. Furthermore, specialized imaging tests can now find iron in the heart and allow patients to be treated before they develop iron-related heart failure.

As with sickle-cell disease, drugs that increase production of fetal hemoglobin can partially correct the anemia of thalassemia, but efforts to improve the treatment of thalassemia continue.

Future Directions

Medications that increase fetal hemoglobin in both sickle-cell disease and thalassemia have greatly improved life for patients suffering from these diseases; however, safer and more effective drugs are still being sought. Stem cell transplantation can be used to treat both illnesses, but it has many limitations. Further research to improve the safety of transplantation, especially when using stem cells from unrelated donors, is necessary before it can be widely accepted as a safe and effective treatment. Finally, the longterm hope for successfully treating both of these diseases is to correct the error in the globin gene itself. While it is possible to do this type of gene therapy in animals, there are several obstacles that must be overcome before human trials will be successful.

The following article was published in December 2008 as part of the special ASH Anniversary brochure, 50 Years in Hematology: Research That Revolutionized Patient Care:

An inspiring true story of a young man, who was diagnosed at nine months old, with Cooley’s Anemia or thalassemia, an inherited blood disorder. He was diagnosed with the most severe form of thalassemia, which affects less than 1,000 people in the United States.

A symptom is nothing more than a sign that you need to shift or change

In April, I attended Dr. Norm Shealy’s seminar: Energy Medicine — Scientific Proof and Practical Applications and I am moved to mention his discovery that — beyond the meridians of acupuncture — there are what he calls “sacred rings” {a kind of energy channels in the body} that similarly relate to healing http://www.normshealy.com

Not to give anyone false hope, but based on my understanding of these “rings,” I have the idea is that, possibly, the integration of Dr. Shealy’s “Ring” treatment along with blood transfusions might enhance the health and wellbeing of those who have immunodeficiencies or even those who need repeated blood transfusions …

I would like to close with the mention, as well, of Dr. Bradley Nelson’s Emotion Code http://www.healerslibrary.com/what-is-the-emotion-code/ 

***BEGIN FAIR USE QUOTE***

“The Emotion Code is the simplest, easiest, and fastest method ever devised to find emotional baggage (using {kinesiological} muscle testing) and release it, either from yourself or from someone else. Our emotional baggage consists of actual energies, the energies of intense emotional events that we’ve experienced that are still stuck in our bodies. These energies distort the normal energy field of the body, creating pain, malfunction, all manner of disease …

“In the same way that you cannot see the wind, yet you can feel it’s effects, trapped emotions are invisible and they can exert powerful forces upon you. Trapped emotions can affect you physically just as much as they can mentally and emotionally. It is my experience that a significant percentage of physical illnesses, emotional difficulties and self-sabotage are actually caused by these unseen energies.”

***END FAIR USE QUOTE***

Dr. Brad leads … and teaches … from his heart  {In his materials, he even includes examples of healing within his own family}, and:

My feeling — as I have been studying Dr. Brad’s experiential applications of his practice on numerous people, and learning how to apply what he does — is that what he has developed is workable. I would say that — to the degree that getting rid of “trapped emotions” may contribute to the wellbeing of those with any “inborn” or chronic dis-eases — Dr. Brad’s Emotion Code {and his Body Code, which expands on it} may be seamlessly integrated into anyone’s overall health and wellbeing practices … for self and others …
