Patient (X) was diagnosed with having ITP (idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura). X was previously active in the education sector, resigned from her career due to age and the regular troubles that come with it. Lifestyle had become more relaxed (inactive). X is somewhat temperamental with a negative outlook (as compared to the spouse). Over time, X experienced weakness et al.
X checked into a medical institution (K) and was diagnosed with ITP. According to the children "the doctors don't know what causes it..". That is the layman's term for Idiopathic. ITP causes a patients platelet count to decrease and thus experience all the problems that come with it including poor clotting et al.
She was undergoing transfusion to increase her platelet count. But immediately after, her platelet count continued to drop steeply.
It was recommended by the hospital for X to undergo splenectomy.
1. dysfunction of immune system, central etheric organs and spleen.
2. depletion of physical energy (basic).
3. imminent if not already active diabetes.
4. Splenectomy not required. Energy medicine will eventually normalize spleen and immune system activity.
The following recommendations were made by TGP to X:
1. immediately undergo frequent accupuncture to normalize and energize spleen and immune system functions. Contact INAM for accupuncturist or bring X there.
2. take large quantitities of ampalaya, ampalaya leaves (tea), okra, luyang dilaw(turmeric). All these are easily available in your local markets and have energy values that supplement the immune system, spleen, liver and kidney functions.
3. leave the hospital (k). Poor etheric environment (hospital) and inactivity (results in poor etheric circulation) aids in both the depletion of energy flow, contamination of etheric system. Also, it incurrs unnecessary expenditure.
4. Further consultation later regarding paradigm changes.
5. X undergo lifestyle changes by engaging in regular escalating exercise program.
Further update with X family informs me that INAM was contacted a week later and X platelet deteriorating.
Splenectomy was highly recommended by K.
An MD accupuncturist was sent to K. Eventually family of X mentions that:
1. Accupuncture isn't allowed in K
2. Due to the extreme situation of X, it was recommended to undergo accupuncture AFTER the operation.
3. The doctors were not allowed to discharge the patient even if it is the patient's choice because they could "lose their license".
I believe that it is the patients choice whether or not to stay in the hospital or undergo the procedure. The system should not force their decisions upon the patient just as it is for the patient to have their right to life or death. The regular doctors wouldn't understand it anyway and the only thing they can recommend is removal of the spleen to prevent it from filtering out platelets further. Living without a spleen for the rest of your life is a nightmare. Septicemia and other infections are much more probable after.
The situation is frustrating because:
If X was allowed treatment via energy medicine (accupuncture) the patient would most likely have improved immediately and may not have needed splenectomy or even further infusions.
Accupuncture is extremely safe even in these extreme conditions. I did recommend ,despite my frustrations ,that if they could not perform accupuncture, then they should have engaged in accupressure. I hope that the institution isn't as bullheaded not to allow that. But it was too late. I was told by the X family on the morning of the splenectomy.
CONCLUSION: If they had contacted the accupuncturist sooner, if the hospital (k) allowed accupuncture, if an external energy med practitioner was able to go then maybe X wouldn't have to live without a spleen for the rest of her life.
What could have been done in the last minute was
1.postpone the operation, have another blood transfusion (X had an uncommon blood type),
2.undergo frequent accupuncture or other energy medicine treatments (pranic, reiki et al. whether the institution allows it or not),
3.have the patient take the recommended diet above,
4.have periodic blood tests within the succeeding week.
If there are improvements in the platelet count decrease, then the operation can be foregone. As in any treatment, there are no guarantees, however by evaluating all the risks and costs, given the time line and situation, accupuncture should have been the first line of treatment.
This is a situation that was completely reversible at little cost. Unfortunately, the current medical system is sometimes a hindrance to wellness. This is due to the limits of the knowledge base of regular medical practitioners. I hope the readers of this post will learn something that may someday prevent them from undergoing the same nightmare.
Currently, X platelet count has improved (post operation) but it still doesn't discount that this could have been completely unnecessary and she will now have to worry about infections. Also, all problems are intertwined and her ITP is caused by something closer to her core. ITP is just a symptom of the true problem. Other symptoms will manifest such as diabetes etc...
Btw it was confirmed that the patient did have diabetes.
