ITP and Herbalife
by: Warren (THSS)


Hi Francesca,

Thank you for your contact.

Immune thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP) is a bleeding disorder as I am sure you are aware.

For the benefit of other people who might be looking though here I will mention that in ITP, the blood doesn't clot as it should. This is due to a low number of blood cell fragments called platelets (PLATE-lets) or thrombocytes (THROM-bo-sites).

With this the immune system actually destroys the platelets which are necessary for normal blood clotting so it is essentially an immune system problem.

Left unchecked it can be a big problem as you are aware but with proper support the chances of recovery are good.

Very often ITP occurs after a viral infection as does Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. I think it would be very useful to read our page on CFS at http://www.thehealthsuccesssite.com/Chronic-fatigue-syndrome.html. I think you will find a lot of similarities.

With this you are asking about use of Herbalife products. Herbalife products are not contra-indicated to medications or the details would have to be listed on the bottles. They are a food products. As Herbalife distributors we cannot proscribe and we would not what to. Our role is to give your body the tools to allow it to heal itself. That is why I want you to read through the information on the CFS page as you will see this clearly expressed.

Based on that I suggest that there are no problems with any of the Herbalife products being used while you have ITP. This is not a medical opinion and if you have any questions at all about using the products then let us get you some labels that you can print out and take to your doctor. Ask him if anything in the products could cause you any harm and when he says no then ask if he/she will monitor your progress using Herbalife and watch over your health for you.

I would expect that Herbalife products will give great results.

(I'll endeavour to put up a page on ITP on our A to Z section sometime in the next couple of weeks)
