Well, it's been ages since I have logged into the forum. I hope everyone is doing just fine, I have had a quick glance over some posts to see if you are all still here, and hey ho, I remember many of you!
Well here is a brief update of where I am at today:
As many of you will remember, I turned down the conventional treatments offered at the hospital and with lots of research chose to experiment with Nattokinase instead.
Well, I am still taking Natto everyday (2 x 50mg mornings and 2 x 50mg evenings), I also take 1 x Oxy Powder at night and 1 x probiotics. I do take the odd aspirin now and again just for good luck (propably approx twice per week!
I eat a healthy balanced diet consisting of lots of dark greens and in particular, plenty of asparagus to help cleanse the blood.
Since taking Natto, my platelets have never been better, this could just be coincidental but for me, but I am convinced it has been my miracle drug.
I have my platelets counted regularly at me GP surgery just to keep an eye on things and my GP is very pleased with how I am doing.
For those of you who remember, back in 2008 my haematologist at the hospital wouldn't see me if I didn't take his advice and start low dose chemo', he was very much against my decision to take Natto instead even though I told him how well I was feeling since taking it and how my platelets had improved dramatically. I am now still only under my GP who keeps a very close eye on both my blood counts and I am sure he consults with the hospital for advice just in case he felt the need to refer me back to the hospital for further checkups, luckily my GP feels well under control with me and fully supports my decision to continue with Natto.
Here is my counts over the past years

|Stopped Aspirin & Started Nattokinase|
I had a blood test taken a couple of days ago and will have results later this week.
As you can see, since taking Natto, my blood count is still gradually coming down.
My general health is improving monthly and I feel better than I have ever felt.
As I mentioned, this could be coincidental for me and therefore wouldn't suggest this a cure by no means. To my knowledge Natto has never been tested for ET. This is such a shame as this could be good news.
Does anyone else take Nattokinase daily? I would love to hear from you!
