Low Platelet Count Natural Treatment - Thrombocytopenia Ayurvedic Treatment

Natural Treatment for Low Platelet Count - Ayurvedic Treatment for Low Platelet Count - Ayurvedic Treatment for Thrombocytopenia 

Usually the reason for low platelet count is bone marrow depression or faulty bone marrow function. There are the following major reasons for low platelet counts -
1. Faulty production/ low production from bone marrow. The other cells like RBC's or WBC's may also be low in many cases. Bone marrow depression is caused by so many reasons like drugs, drug reactions,  alcohol, cancers etc.
2. Body conditions where the platelet destruction is more than the production rate in the bone marrow.
3. Spleen Problems can also be the reason for low platelets.
4. Other systemic illnesses like Leukemias, AIDS, lymphomas and different types of cancers can also be the reasons for low platelet count.

LOW PLATELET COUNT TREATMENT - Thrombocytopenia treatment 

Usually steroids like prednisolone and immunoglobulins are prescribed by modern medical practitioners.They are often given via Intravenous route.
Blood transfusions are often given to increase the platelet count
Alcohol should be avoided at all costs..

Ayurvedic Treatment for Low Platelet Count

Cap. Ashwagandha - 2 capsules thrice daily 
Yakrit Plihantak Churna - 1 teaspoonful twice daily 
Tablet Punarnava Mandur - 2 tablets twice daily
Syp. Rohitakarishta - 30 ml twice daily 
Syp. Amla juice - 20 ml twice daily ( empty stomach)- 6 Am and 6 PM , with equal water. - You can buy this online at 
Wheat Grass Juice - 30 ml - once daily in the morning, empty stomach

Papaya leaf juice- An excellent herbal remedy for low platelet count. It should be taken every 2 hrs interval ( about 20 ml juice of papaya leaves) and this helps to increase platelets within 1 or 2 days. This is an effective herbal remedy for low platelet counts. 

If the patient is a child - then I would prefer Arvindaasav instead of Pipplayasav and add Kumar Kalyan Ras in the package below.

Tapyadi Loh - 5 gm

Can add Heerak Bhasma ( if affordable) or Vaikrant Bhasma (In case of poor patient)- if the platelet counts are low because of Bone marrow disease or Leukemia

1. Indian pennywort leaf juice or Gotukola Capsules- Juice of the leaves of Centella asiatica and in Hindi it is called Mandukparni

2. Juice of leaves of Papaya - 2  tablespoonfuls twice daily  ( This is the most effective treatment.  Buy Capsules G Plat or Capsules UPLAT - Get from Mr. Ashwani - read below )

  2. i have a problem of low platelets, but my all test are negative e.g cancer, aids etc. every thing is fine and my docter said tis problem is because of ur bad luck, problem is in ur immune system and spleen is coinfused because your body make platelets but antibodies cover all platelets and spleen is confused, it damaged all platelets.

  3. Hello doctor,

    Information you provided here is much more than what I could appreciate. I am a researcher in Cleveland Clinic, USA, my brother just suffered low platelet count due to viral infection and I have been searching immensely on internet for increasing platelet count naturally but anything harldy helped unless I ended up on this page. It helps a lot.

    many thanks.

  4. I thank the internet which has enabled people to read about almost everything and has helped a lot of people contribute to a common research.
    The various formulations are used in ancient ayurvedic healthcare system of India for increasing low platelet counts. This has helped a lot of people suffering from many similar cytopenias and leukemias.
    I am glad that I am able to use these in my patients.

    Beetroot juice is also a good remedy for Low Platelet count. I recently found that Kiwi fruit is also very useful herbal remedy for low platelet count.

  5. I am thankful that I came accross Dr. Vickram's website. I have been researching ways to increase my son's (5 years old) platelet since it has been decreasing due to his illness, leukemia. I read that giving him papaya juice will increase it and sure enough in 4 days when we checked his platelet it increased significantly. I thank you so much. Papaya juice really increases platelet. Thank you so much Dr. Vikram for being so helpful.

  6. Thanks Arlene ! Your feedback will be important for others as this may help others to learn from your experience.

  7. Hi Dr. Vikram,

    Please take note of a correction I need to make in my earlier post about increasing platelet. It isn't "papaya juice" but PAPAYA LEAF JUICE that helped increased my 5 year old boy's platelet. Also I am giving him beetroot juice and kiwi fruit as you suggested. Once again thank you so much for your help.

  8. Thanks Arlene for correcting it.. Even I did not notice that you mentioned Papaya juice or Papaya leaf juice and I published it on my blog. Yes, the papaya Leaf Juice is effective in increasing the platelet counts.

  9. Thank you for all the good information ~ My husband is in treatment for alcoholism right now. The doctors said that he has a very very low platlet count. I have read that his disease can be caused by that. He also suffers from RA which can also cause low count. Where do you get Papay leaf juice at? We live in California, USA

  10. NAMASKAR Sir
    i have a problem of low platelets, but my all test are negative e.g cancer, aids etc. every thing is fine and my docter said this problem is because of ur bad luck, problem is in ur immune system and spleen is coinfused because your body make platelets but antibodies cover all platelets and spleen is confused, it damaged all platelets.

  11. The above post about low platelet count treatment in ayurveda explains everything. please read above about it. The low platelets counts respond to papaya leaf juice, wheat grass juice, beet root juice - all fresh - 20 ml - 30 ml daily.. Also use the above ayurvedic medicines for low platelet count mentioned in the blog post above. if you want them, you can write to for pricing and delivery information.

  12. For low platelet count - The papaya leaf juice is an effective treatment. I am talking about Papaya leaf juice and not papaya juice. You have to make it fresh every time and it is not available over internet or sold by anyone but you have to make it yourself from fresh papaya leaves. Read all the above posts if someone is suffering from low platelet count. I hope they are useful for you.

    1. Dear Dr.,

      I am glad I had the chance to visit your blog and read about the remedies you mention on low platelet count. However, I have a question related to the fact that an effective treatment are the papaya leaf juice. I leave in Europe (GREECE) and have searched the entire markets but could not find any fresh leaves. Even, if I order them on the internet, from some producing countries, by the time they get here they would be spoiled or dried. Online there is the option of buying papaya leaf powder. Could this be an alternate for the fresh juice?

      I would greatly appreciate it if you could let me know of my options at this point.

      With best regards,

  13. Dr. Vikram,
    How about using dried papaya leaves to increase platelets? What kind of dosage should be used?

  14. Dry Papaya leaves juice does not help much. Fresh Papaya leaves juice is recommended. 20-30 ml twice daily is ok. Ashwagandha capsules also help. Other juices like Wheat grass juice, Beet Root juice, kiwi Fruit consumption also helps to increase platelet counts. Ashwagandha capsules should be used in dosage of 1 capsule twice daily

  15. in order to make to make the papaya juice do I need to boil the leaf and grind it to make the juice? Is'it safe for my child age 2 years plus to take the papaya juice after going through bone marrow transplant which is a failure for him.

  16. Papaya leaf juice works best for low platelet counts or Idiopathic thrombocytopenia. You don't have to boil the leaves... just wash the leaves properly, grind them to make juice. Remember It is not Papaya juice- It is PAPAYA LEAF JUICE. For 2 years old child, 1 teaspoonful thrice daily should be sufficient. Give him Beetroot juice, Wheat Grass juice, Amla juice in the same dosage i.e. 1 teaspoonful twice daily. These are also good for him

  17. hi. I am from Romania and my child age 6 months has low platelets.... How much should I give him?

    I don`t know where I will find leafs... but I must handle it.
    Thanks for sharing this free!

  18. You can give your child 5-6 drops twice to thrice daily of PAPAYA LEAF JUICE and not Papaya juice. Amla juice can also be given. You can buy Amla juice at

  19. Kiran...
    my friend(23 yrs) is suffering from thrombocytopeniya from last month.Our physician check her every week nd every time blood reports show low platelets and they d'nt know the reason. All other reports are negative. We live in Canada and fresh papaya leaf is not available here. So can we start the beetroot and amla juice with ayurvedic treatment that you mention above because our parents can parcel that ayurvedic medicine to us from india.

  20. Yes you can do it. You can ask your parents to contact Mr. Ashwani at 0091-9915593604 for these ayurvedic medicines. He will send them to your parents. Meanwhile you can start with Amla juice and Fresh Beet root juice. - Dr. Vikram

  21. Good afternoon Sir, Dr. Vikram. I am Ivy Angeles from Philippines. I just want to ask for you assistance Sir about my mother. From January 15, 2012 up to this day (January 19, 2012), she use to go to a small medical laboratory to check his blood showing she has a low platelet counts. Each day it becomes lower and lower. But they said she is negative to dengue and her hemoglobin is okay. She was advised to go to see a specialist in blood, the Hematologist, but sad to say the doctor was not around and let her come back on January 24, 2012. I am kind of worried about the situation, and I wonder we can not be able to wait until Tuesday (Jan. 24) for her next check up. I started research from the internet about the diagnosis behind the low platelets. And I am very much worried about this ITP. Some of article I have read it needs prednisone or chemotheraphy. But as far as I know I feel that our creator created a natural resources to make it as human's natural remedies and medicines. Please help what should I do. I will wait for your reply Sir. I really need your help. Thank you.

  22. Hello Dr. Vikram ..I (46 years old) have been diagnosed with low platelet counts currently around 76,000. My platelet count was first noticed low back in 2006 and ever since it has cycled up and down. I am not sure if it is thrombocytopenia or something else. My RBC, WBC etc are normal. My blood glucose numbers are towards higher end of normal range somewhere around 96-108. Would this medicine with Honey will cause my glucose go up? If I take the above described medicine that I see you suggested one set with Aswagandha and other with the mixture 60 packs and Papaya, AMLA juice. Do I have to take all this everyday? And how long I should take this? Is this medicine for life long? Should the Papaya leaf juice be taken only for two days then stop? I am in USA. How do I get all this? Papaya juiceCan you please reply my questions.

  23. hi as I am getting a lot of queries about role of papaya leaf juice in low platelet counts or Thrombocytopenia. I recommend fresh Papaya leaf juice rather than Papaya juice. There is no company making papaya leaf juice, so only the fresh is recommended if you have any papaya trees growing around your areas. Otherwise, you may need to use the other remedies which I have mentioned in the blog. All these remedies are not having any side effects and can be consumed with any ongoing treatments for low platelet count due to cancers, bone marrow depression, drugs sensitivity, spleen problems or any other reasons of thrombocytopenia. At this site I can answer the generalized queries which are useful for everybody, but if you want specific answers relating to your problem, you may need to write to us at - We can send many ayurvedic medicines, herbal supplements to everywhere in the world including USA.

  24. There are many people suffering from low platelet counts. There are some natural remedies which work well in thromobocytopenia ( Low platelet counts) To get information about this, you may need to write to us at - or call 0091-9915593604
    I may not be able to publish all your queries or answer all your queries at my blog here - Thanks - Dr. Vikram

  25. 12 Lb Pomeranian diagnosed with Idiopathic Thrombocytopenia, Not responding well to prednisone effects...... Looking for alternative to prednisone, & purpura relapses. So far 3 bouts of Purpura in 2012. Going to try Beet root juice, as is readily available here in S. Calif. 1 tsp a day with meal. Hope it works.

    1. Also give wheat grass juice if it is not available, give plain grass juice. Share your experience here as it will help others also suffering from ITP.

  26. Thank you Vikram Chauhan for your site....... I have also read about Dengue fever & a weed that grows readily available for those that may need it.....

    Thanks in advance..

  29. Doctor,
    My father in law (77 years) is suffering from MDS (Myelo Displastic Synodrome), a type of Blood cancer. Seven years back, he had undergone bypass surgery for the heart and was leading a normal life after that. He also had prostrate cancer 2 years back and was completely cured using Laser treatment. Two months back, he had Left ventrical dysfunction and has almost bedridden after he got discharged from the hospital.Due to all these issues, doctor has adviced him not to go for chemotherapy.

    He first had his Total counts as low as 1.5K. After transfusions, it has improved to normal. His RBC is low around 9-10. When it drops to 7.5, we are giving PRBC transfusions. When the platelets count come down to 30K, we are giving platelets transfusion. Now we are giving him papaya leaf juice and platelets seems to have recovered to 1 Lakh. But still the RBC is around 8 only.

    Is there any natural medicine like Beetroot juice or Haldi to take care of his RBCs.
    and also to reduce his tiredness and increase the strength?

    We are looking at alternate medicine to treat him for these health issues.

    Are you planning to visit Bangalore this month? If not, do you advise any good Ayurvedic Doctor who has succeeded in this kind of treatment preferably nearer to Bangalore.

    Your suggestion is much appreciated and valued.

  31. Hi Doctor,

    This is for my 4 years old child. He is severely affected with ITP. All tests are conducted and found it is chronic ITP. His platelet count is too low and now it is reached up to 2000. He was admitted at hospital and took Immunoglobulin 3days and as two weeks.At the time of treatment the count is raised to 3Lakh and again immediately down to below 20,000. after 1 week again started to give prednisolone with 4 days for 3 weeks.Each time after 4-5 days after medication it comes down to 3000-7000. Doctor asked to continue 1 more course of prednisolone.
    We are now at Saudi and Papaya leaves are not available here.
    Please give me an immediate reply regarding the treatment.

  32. can i use papaya leaf juice in dogs for thrombocytopenia? is it safe in dogs? please reply ... my pet's platelet count is 25000, plz help.. can i give kiwi to him? witing for your reply.. thanks.

  33. I think, if papaya leaves are not available, you can take Papaya (Carica Papaya ) Leaves mother tincture manufactured by Dr William Schwabe or Dr Reckeweg & Co and take two drops in half cup lukewarm water two/three times a day. It will give the same result as fresh papaya leaves.

  45. Do you have any suggestions for Neonatal Alloimmune Infant Thrombocytopenia? I have antibodies that destroy my baby's platelets in the womb causing low platelets and putting them at risk for a brain bleed even in the womb. Once they're born and my antibodies clear their system they're fine. I'm not comfortable with IVIG and prednisone so I was wondering if you may have suggestions. My platelets are fine but I worry for the baby.

  46. Dear sir I am suffering from ITP since 28 Oct 2014.Presently my platlet count are at 37000.I am on prednisolon 17.5 mg. I am taking aonla aelovera juice, Giloy juice daily twice.Is there any treatment in with you.Have you treated any such patient earlier.

    With Regards,
    R K Pandey

  47. HI DOC,
    I had heard from my mother this treatment of papaya leaf juice. If it is ITP then how long the treatment should be continued.
