Re: Hemophilia?

thanks both, --also i found different things on internet--

This is from a place called tradicional chinese medicine guide:

Hemophilia treatment is mainly conservative local treatment and replacement therapy to stop bleeding, hemophilia people’s lives to avoid injuries or heavy physical activity; try to avoid injections and surgery; forbidden to take drugs affecting platelet function, such as the A Division aspirin, indomethacin, dipyridamole and so on, blood stasis of Chinese herbal medicine should be avoided.

This is from news-medical dot net:

Herbs which strengthen blood vessels and act as astringents may benefit patients with haemophilia, however there are no peer reviewed scientific studies to support these claims. Suggested herbs include: Bilberry (Vaccinium myrtillus), Grape seed extract (Vitis vinifera), Scotch broom (Cytisus scoparius), Stinging nettle (Urtica dioica), Witch hazel (Hamamelis virginiana), and yarrow (Achillea millefolium).

the independent:

No studies have examined the value of herbs for haemophilia specifically, and you should never use herbal therapies without your doctor supervision. However, based on their own experience, health care providers may recommend the following herbs to strengthen blood vessels and act as astringents (causing contraction) to make bleeding less severe:
Bilberryfruit (Vaccinlum myrtillus)
Bilberry fruit (Vaccinium myrtillus), Grape seed extract (Vitis vinifera)
Hawthorn berry (Crataegus monogyna), Scotch broom (Cytisus scoparius)
Stinging nettle CUrt/ca dioica), SWitch hazel (Hamamelis virginiana). Yarrow (Achillea millefolium)
In addition, people with haemophilia should avoid the following herbs, which tend to make bleeding more severe:
Ginkgo (Ginkgo bilob, Garlic (Allium sativum), Ginger (Zingiber officinale)
Ginseng (Panax spp.), Horse chestnut (Aesculus hippocastanum), Turmeric (Curcuma longa), White Willow (Sahix alba)
Other herbs, such as licorice, dill and oregano should be used with caution and under the advice of a trained herbalist.
Supplements and Herbs

While the above-mentioned herbs may be useful for haemophilia patients, there are a number of herbs that they should avoid, as using these herbs will only increase the severity of bleeding. Some of the herbs that need to be avoided by haemophilia patients are as follows:
Garlic (Allium sativum), Ginko (Ginko bioba), Ginseng (Panax spp.), Ginger (Zingiber officinale), Turmeric (Curcuma longa), Horse chestnut (Aesculus hippocastanum)
Lifestyle and home remedies
These steps may help you avoid excessive bleeding and protect your joints:
Exercise regularly: Activities such as swimming, bicycle riding and walking can build up muscles while protecting joints. Contact sports — such as football, hockey or wrestling — are not safe for people with hemophilia.
Avoid certain medications: Drugs that can aggravate bleeding include aspirin and ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin, others). Instead, use acetaminophen (Tylenol, others), which is a safe alternative for mild pain relief. Also avoid certain blood-thinning medications, such as heparin and warfarin (Coumadin), which prevent blood from clotting. Certain herbal supplements also contain ingredients that may cause bleeding, especially if you have hemophilia. Talk to your doctor before taking any herbal supplements.
Practice good dental hygiene: This can help prevent the need to have a tooth pulled, which can lead to excessive bleeding.
Protect your child from injuries that could cause bleeding. If your child has hemophilia, ask your doctor for guidance that can help your child stay active while avoiding injury. Kneepads, elbow pads, helmets and safety belts all may help prevent injuries from falls and other accidents. In addition, keep your home free of furniture with sharp corners and keep sharp objects out of reach or locked away.

and here also talks about an study on hemophilia hemorrhage:
