  • My 14 year old grandson was just diagnosed I want to be there for my Step Daughter so just trying to educate myself so I can be there for her

  • This is one of the most useful and beneficial presentations I have seen yet on TEDx Talks. Instructor mad it easy and enjoyable as well.

  • Strengthen your immune system carbon dioxide cancer cells you do not hyperventilate you get light-headed but you do not pass out remember I am 78 years old my resting heart rate is 47 I do not do yoga yoga people can’t even dig a ditch

  • when you said you will do 20 to 25 breaths per minute you will be stagnated stagnation Grace Mesquite is in the Boogie your fabric is designed to oxygenate the reason you get sick because you do not take the personal responsibility of oxygenating

  • Chugging and sand making love and giving birth have a common denominator is oxygenating learn to oxygenate nose and mouth and everything in between

  • Ancient Indian practices of Anulom-Vilom and Kapalabati being taught by western names/methods, very useful nevertheless and should be a way of life.

  • For next conferences, please refer to use CATALAN language for your power points.
    It is an insult for the native local speakers
    “Spanish” or better say castilian language IS NOT native language in Barcelona.
    Thank you

  • Whiskey breathing is similar to how a singer breathes. Using the diaphragm air is drawn deep into the lungs quickly then exhaled very slowly. This controlled breathed gets oxygen right down to the base of the lungs which can miss out due to shallow breathing.
    Cheers Gray

  • correction i don’t get the coffee breathing,, you have to inhale to have something to exhale( he says don’t inhale) is there no inhales between the quick exhales? or is it quick exhale, pause quick exhale etc with no inhales between? is it like weight lifters that do quick inhale exhale short ad quick before the big lift of weights??

  • i don’t understand the water breathing, you have had to inhale to have something to exhale.. is there no inhales between the quick exhales? or is it quick exhale, pause, quick exhale, etc with no inhales between?
    is it life weight lifters that do quick inhale exhale short and quick before the big lift of weights??

  • I got lucky because I had my stroke in the hospital (I was a director of finance at a major hospital). I got in my office on Monday at 8 am and couldn’t speak by 8:15 am. I was admitted right there and got MRIs and medication by 3 pm (they made me wait because the ER is busy).
    I thank God because I was inside an hospital and the consequences could have been worse. It’s been 10-11 months (incident happened in 2018) and I am still struggling with speech (I’d say I am 80% there), words, memory, and problems in a couple of cognitive areas. I am 59.

  • I was taught to inhale 4 beats, wait 4 beats, then exhale 4 beats for meditation, works great. You “rest” your lungs a little with every breath.

  • Hello im mary Jane from philippines.. I diagnosed polycythemia vera last week.. And it’s really hard to me accept coz many foods that I really love eat but now that I diagnosed with this its really hard and the adjustment so hard.. Especially what should I to eat.. Please help me po.. I don’t know what food that I can eat.. Hope you gonna help me

  • I am a relatively healthy 20 year old who works out 3x a week and eats very nutritious foods but for some reason I cant take deep breaths. Like breathing in for 4 is genuinely difficult and anything past that is impossible. I dont know if I should go see a doctor for it or maybe do some breathing exercises but I literally cant make it to 5. I am definitely a chest breather which I heard was bad and sometimes I catch myself holding my breath. Any suggestions on what I should do?

  • I’m a little confused about how to do coffee breathing. Are you using quick little “sneeze” exhales and then naturally inhaling a little air while you do this? He didn’t seem to take a breath before so if anyone can help me out here I’d appreciate it!

  • In the 1980s, researchers with the Framingham Study, a 70-year research program focused on heart disease, gathered two decades of data from 5,200 subjects, crunched the numbers and discovered that the greatest indicator of life span wasn’t genetics, diet or the amount of daily exercise, as many had suspected. It was lung capacity. Larger lungs equaled longer lives. Because big lungs allow us to get more air in with fewer breaths. They save the body from a lot of unnecessary wear and tear.

    That’s the first step in healthy breathing: extending breaths to make them a little deeper, a little longer. Try it. For the next several minutes, inhale gently through your nose to a count of about five and then exhale, again through your nose, at the same rate or a little more slowly if you can. This works out to about six breaths a minute.

    When we breathe like this we can better protect the lungs from irritation and infection while boosting circulation to the brain and body. Stress on the heart relaxes; the respiratory and nervous systems enter a state of coherence where everything functions at peak efficiency. Just a few minutes of inhaling and exhaling at this pace can drop blood pressure by 10, even 15 points.

  • SO MUCH COMPLETELY CONTRADICTORY ADVICE ABOUT BREATHWORK,and everybody is like ” my method is right” ( buteyko, different schools of buteyko. Wim hof, soma, yogic, pranayama etc etc etc etc ) as bad as religion. WTF are you supposed to think?

  • Coffee breathing? In India people are doing this for thousands of years. Also for your information It is called as KAPALBHATI Pranayam�� It is taught in Yoga��

  • There is a technical inaccuracy here. Paraphrased: “If we reprofuse the penumbra, those neurons come back.” Reestablishing blood supply is essential, but it will not help unless clinicians help the survivor reestablish cortical control over the returning billions of neurons. This process is reviewed here: http://recoverfromstroke.blogspot.com/2018/03/stroke-is-hellish-cat.html

  • I was diagnosed in 2000 and I’m still kicking but not very high I am 63 use a walker on oxygen 24_7 and many many more health issues very prone to pneumonia.just eat well and keep moving its no fun but don’t give up fight fight fight and believe in the Lord God almighty..

  • A man should live for 120 years. A dog’s lifetime is 10 to 15 years. Why such a huge difference? A dog has shallow and fast breaths. A human’s breath is not shallow and not fast as a dog, but still the breaths are shallow. If one observes his or her breath and practice deep breathing, our life span also increases towards 120 years and also provides healthy life. Let us observe our breaths and practice deep breathing.

  • Amazing work,imagine this is just a small part of yoga btw he’s done a really good job by marketing the whole concept of different types of pranayama by presenting it in an attractive way.

  • Thanks. I really hope Whiskey breathing will work on me as I’m trying hard to relax and to sleep. They’re hard enough even with whiskey.

  • I’m so lucky. I was/am one of his students. He makes everything so simple and easy to understand, no matter how difficult it is. It’s really an art ’cause not every teacher can do that. He’s humble and very friendly. His classes are always funny. He makes everybody feels at ease. Wonderful teacher ������

  • This is great! I really had no idea that there were different forms of breathing for different activities. It makes sense but the way he put it, water, whiskey, and coffee techniques made so much sense. I’m very excited to try these!

  • West is finally evolving and learning what they rejected for centuries only because it came from Indian civilization knowledge system and they had to shame it to occuoy & convert it into their Abrahmic Cult Groups under Vaticans directions. Humanity has lost so much because of unscientific lifestyles and its sellers in the form of missionaries.

  • This is only partial information.. There should also be full expansion until the clavicle rises up and there also specific visualizing that allows the proper directing of the energy being gathered through pranayama, which is what this guy is describing.. It literally thousands of years old.

  • I breathe 60 to 70 breaths per minute while I am jogging in the sand learn to breathe 60 70 breaths per minute don’t stop I live on Kauai I’m 78 years old and I jog in the sand everyday for 2 hours slow and easy 60 to 70 breaths per minute don’t stop for 30 still a race track in your backyard and you too can experience The Missing Link minutes

  • Also try pranayam which actual yoga not the downward dog. Coffee breathing is kapalbhati pranayam. Do this on empty stomach and preferably with proper guidance.

  • Reallyyyy�� we teach ts fr free n india it’s called pranayama, so westerniers learn frm us fr free n make money���� we sld hve patent ������

  • I just suffered a stroke and is going through physiotherapy right now. I’m very interested in your work and more than amazed by the “timely” intervention right after the stroke happened to a patient. I’m hoping that I could setup a similar specialized, comphrehensive and professional stroke treatment for stroke patients and potential people that have a high risk that leads to a stroke attack. Would you be interested in enlightening on the details, necessary procedures and cost involved in setting one in my country? Btw, I’m in Singapore. I look forward to your response. You can reach me at [email protected] gmail.com I really wish to help people with preventive and proactive measures to ensure that they live their lives to the fullest. I’m now regretting my decision of not adopting a healthier lifestyle. I’m firm believer in “preventive” measures rather than a remeditive approach. Your help is much appreciated.

  • I don’t need another lesson on strokes. I didn’t take it serious before I had strokes so now I’m looking for ways to exercise my brain concerning vision and anxiety. I’ve been improving my mobility & strength but how do you work on the brain internally?

  • I’m proud of Grey for going off. But…. I know she was still grieving but, why when it was his fault that Her and Amelia put all the blame on Penny when it was his call. I think the writers overdid the Penny hate.

  • I just got results back from cbc I have a high hemoglobin count it’s supposed to be 16.8 but its 17.2 raised by.4 but im still going to a hematologist i see people thrive and live past all expectations so i am not scared whatever challenge good put in front of me i will prosper even with an extra risk but u cant live ur life scared it will stop u from living and don’t listen to google that says u have 7 years to live listen to stories people have lived up to a normal life span with it. It will ein if u let it i will keep u guys updated on my diagnosis and if i test positived but im praying im not

  • Excellent Ted talk! Also, 7:08 onwards, coffee breathing is what Indians call it Kapalbhati. You can also learn it from Ramdev baba’s youtube videos.

  • Never Use A Mother’s Child As a Example especially after U Killed Her Father I Speak as A Mother I truly Was Appreciated how gut wrenching her reaction is

  • I’m a stroke victim New York heavy metal in stroke and the symptoms for over 10 years since 2009 I I survived four strokes I’m receiving proper treatment but I need further treatment I also believe that I can improve with some brain surgery I already have a flap I can use some gene therapy

  • My stroke will be 2years in March my arm still does not work does this mean my arm will never work again due to the dead brain tissue

  • I had a stroke 2011 on the left side of my brain. When I was in the hospital they decided to do a body scan to see if I had blood colts in my leg or traveling in my body. I could move both arms and both legs before the scan. Once the scan finished and I was in the waiting room I felt my body shut down, my right side would not move. I became paralyzed on my right side and needed rehab. Prior to coming to the hospital my balance was off, when I tried to sit on the toilet I would tilt over and fall to the floor. A small portion of my brain was affected but I could still speak even though my stroke was on the left side of my brain. I have recovered about 80% regained walking, movement in hand and arm. I would like to regain more recovery of my right side and would like to participate in a new stroke therapy at Stanford if possible.

  • hello to whom it may concern:

    my name is tyler menendez i suffered a massive stroke 12 years ago on the left side of my body,since then i have made huge gains,i can now walk(i walk stiff and with a straight cane),there is movement in my arm and hand but its not controlled movement and i have hyperspasticity so moving my arm is very difficult to move so i just don’t use my affected arm and hand and what terrifies me i forgot how to even use my affected arm and hand,i have had every kind of therapy out there with little to no results,i’ve also has numerous surgeries on my affected hand(tendon lengthening,tendon transfer,wrist fusion),as well as i’ve had botox to loosen,and relax the affected muscles in my affected hand and arm and honestly i do not see alot of improvements i just need to know that there’s hope for me and a light @ the end of the tunnel for me please im desperate i need some help please i refuse to live my life as a disabled person i can not handel it please

  • Trying to simplify the practices in easy terms is good but not even mentioning the origin? that’s what the west does…it digests other culture, breaks them down and ruin them…these are the ancient Indian breathing techniques called pranayam..prana means breadth(life force) or energy and yama means moving so it basically means movement of breadth. Funny how he didn’t even mention where he got this knowledge from so when we say that he didn’t mention their Sanskrit names what we mean to say is that he is presenting something that is being practiced in India for thousands of years as something of his own. And that’s what we call cultural digestion. Just like it is a crime to quote a book without a refrence to the original author, it is a moral and social and crime to not mention the wonderful community, culture and country who created and enhanced these millennia old Yoga practices. It is ethically wrong and greedy of a person to not show gratitude towards the teacher they learnt it from.

  • I hate how this show became less entertaining the moment Derek died. I almost stopped watching when Lexie and mark died but I continued but now Derek dies? No thank you he made the show so much better and now that he’s gone it slowly started going downhill

  • Derek is the love of Meredith’s life. The 11 seasons showed their imperfect, difficult, real and strong relationship. Their upbringing, choices, worsts, compromises and bests were the greatest i have seen in television. Meredith may end up with someone or no one at all, but Derek will always be in the picture of who she is. Meredith’s endgame is herself. Derek is the love of her life. Their children are her sun.

  • i just looked up this show while i was curious (i’m on the 2nd season) and goddamn when i saw derek died my face was literally ������

  • GO OFFF!!!! Damn, Mer. That man should be FIRED for killing your man Over the refusal of a head ct and burr holes. What. An. Idiot.

  • Derek killed Derek, anyone that watched the episode could see that. He was idiot conducting an illegal u-turn in the road and then pauses half way through to answer his stupid phone. The doctor was incompetent but let’s be real McDreamy made a dumb mistake.

  • thumbs up for Stanford! However, we all suffer strokes all over the world, please keep this in mind, all humans, not only from the vicinity, not from the continent, we can only pray our doctors will have similar approach! Thanks for sharing this very insightful video!

  • I am now 58 years old. 28 years living with PV…treatments, symptoms, fear, strength, all that Stephany so gracefully shares here. You are beautiful in your skin, in your candor, and with the way with what you do as seen here. I say BRAVO, my friend! Please don’t stop, never change and greenest of wishes to you…with lots of love! Guitar Steve

  • When She said burr holes, my mind flashed back to when she actually did them herself in the beginning, and Derek being there. The fact that it cost him his life in the end. I’m shook still. ��

  • I love that episode i cried when i was watching when she was talking about derek and when alex was reading cristina’s message and kepner and callie and arizona and the rest of the old doctors

  • The so called Coffee Breathing is thousands of years old yogic breathing known as Kapalbhati and should be done frequently for anxiety and stress. Please don’t teach misinformation I write this from the yoga capital of the world Rishikesh. Om Shanti.

  • Ellen Pompeo is stunning as an Actress, but I did not feel this passion in Meredith since she was asked to sign the donation papers on Derek’s death.

  • Good news.my name is Caleb clark from maryland and i’m here to share good news with y’ll. The era of no cure for Hiv is gone as it is curable in this era.I was diagnosed of this few years ago as it became unknown to me my girlfriend had it while we were dating.she only made it known to my friend after we broke up.hearing the news,i almost gave up and i have searched the cure but no way until a friend told me about doctor mercy who has the cure.I contacted him and i am free after using his medication.if you’re there and have lost hope,congratulations as your hour of liberty has come.here are his contact dr[email protected] gmail.com,whatsapp +2348141659546. He can also cure cancer, diabetes, genital herpes, Goloria siphilis HAVE A GREAT DAY

  • Maybe I’m missing something but if Meredith knew that this was the doctor responsible for Derek’s death why did “Perfect Penny” get more of the hate from everyone else? (Again I might have missed something)

  • I just saw some videos regarding perispinal etanercept injections for stroke patients which looks promising. Lookup “Life changed: A New Treatment For Stroke Patients”

  • Hello, when ever I see such leukemia case I always want to say a special thanks to Dr.hopkins for helping me get cured from leukemia i was tested Positive 11months ago, I contacted him base on the testimonies I’m seeing about him
    on the internet, I was cured too by him, he can help you, these is my little way of appreciation by spreading my happiness… And he’s able to help you in getting rid of any kind of decease that’s affecting you….. let me know if you want his info
    ….

  • There are a lot of videos about Polycythemia that are detailed with medical and diagnosis. I have had primary polycythemia vera for 32 years. Whe I started with it, I have in the hospital many times at $15K a pop. Blood clots, embolisms, and a number of problems. I have been on 10mg of wayfarin and 500mg of hydrea for about 32 years. I had some tests done by doctors researching Polycythemia in California in the 80s.You cannot cure this. You cannot depend on doctors and reference for complete treatment. The best thing I did for myself is left the USA, and never went back. After that I did not have a clot in 15 years. My first blood letting in Thailand in 1998 cost me only $7. And yes, they could get into the vein. Many times in the USA they had to stick me a bunch of times to find a vein that worked. I realized that every person is different.I could take omega, I could lift weights, I could do things that was not recommended and felt a lot better. In fact, I did not have a blood letting for 5 years at one point, my HB went down to 12 and stayed thee, and my HCT about 35. I was even anemic for a time. Now at 71, they are trying to remove me off blood thinners,and my blood counts went back up until blood letting brought them back down. I am warned not to lift weights, I do. I am warned not to exercise too much, I do. I was told not to eat too many veggies, I do. If I did everything they told me to do, I would be crippled up in a wheelchair, depressed, with not much of a life. After watching a number of videos, I don’t see much there that will help anybody. In the USA they gave me 6 years to live, that was 32 years ago. In Asia, they actually treat you like you are going to live a normal life, and you might lose a little time over the disease, but not maybe reaching the spent phase. I don’t advise everybody experiment on themselves, but consider taking changed to have a better life. If you don’t, you will basically stuck with what they tell you to do, ad the events that happen to you. You may want to get on disability and find a way to work for yourself so you don’t have to sit at some job felling bad. Most companies won’t hire people on blood thinner, so you have no real future in the work market.There are a lot of things to think about, know about, and you cannot find it on YouTube. (Unfortunately) An most people will not speak up about what is true. You can see from the comments, people are watching their videos and learning nothing.They are left stuck by the medical establishment.

  • I’m concerned that I may be dealing with this. I’m 15 and have high hematocrit/hemoglobin levels that have been continually raising over the last few months especially. I had a CBC test yesterday and my levels where high, I just came home from the er tonight and they where even higher but the doc didn’t mention anything. He just said everything looks fine

  • Love these exercises. Just one question: Why don’t we exhale through the mouth? Is exhaling through the nose more powerful? Thank you for your explanation.

  • Whaooo good Job well done. Amazing work. tumeric spice cures blood clots in the brain. The natural way. Drink everyday. vitamins C cures (lepracy. )

  • This scene is so nice and powerful. but the only thing is, dr paul should not have died, instead he should face what he did that night to derek and live with that grief for the rest of his life.

  • Do you know about emerging data supporting a correlation between increased blood glycohemoglobin A1c levels and increased incidence of Polycythemia Vera? If the data is correct, then cutting carbohydrate intake to below 20 grams a day could resolve PV. Why? Through glycation, glucose attaches to red blood cells and it alters the structure and function of the red blood cells and they can not transfer oxygen to tissues as well as when HbA1c is blow pre-diaetic levels. If you are diagnosed with Polycythemia Vera get your HbA1c tested. If you are pre-diabetic or diabetic, then GOOGLE Ketogenic Diet and people like Jason Fung and learn about low or zero carb eating and you can heal your self.

    Knowing that studies have shown that glycosylation alters the structure and function of hemoglobin [6,7] and tends to shift the oxygen dissociation curve to the left, leading to an increase in hemoglobin-oxygen affinity and a reduction in oxygen delivery to tissues [6,8,9].

  • These are ancient Hindu Yoga techniques very well propagated by Baba Ramdev in India. This person is speaking on the same lines. Check out on YouTube.

  • I was diagnosed with this at 15 years old I’m now 30! I lost my insurance at age 18 and didn’t go to the doctor for a long time I think becuz of work and PV my symptoms have gotten worse however I mange it and I’m going back to the doctor in two week now that I have insurance again.

  • I have polycythemia and my g/dl count goes up to in the 50’s and then I get a phlebotomy and some blood gets drained out. Then finally I ate iron absorption foods and that reduced my iron count some, but it took a while, finally I took diluted Oxalic-acid which reduced my iron ten g/dl ‘s in four days. I sure feel a lot better now and the polycythemia symptoms left, but I still keep it monitored for caution and safety. I don’t recommend this treatment to anyone, but I would think that this is an area that needs to be researched by professional medical personnel. Oxalic-acid is an iron scavenger and foods containing Oxalic-acid reduce iron in the blood.

  • I hope that I don’t have this.:( since 2012 I have had elevated red blood cells and elevated hemoglobin. My cholesterol is high too and I rarely even eat meat. My vision keeps getting worse. I get sick easily. I often have the urge to cough, and I don’t even smoke. Hopefully, it’s something else.

  • I was diagnosed by my Primary Doctor in December 2017. I found out two weeks ago. I’ve already been dealing with another chronic illness, a fatal progressive neurological disease, in addition to chronic pain, for ten years. When the PV symptoms started, I knew it was something new. I thought my other disease was progressing. Instead, I have a slow pressing chronic cancer. ��

  • I Diagnosis Polycythemia Rubra Vera PRV/PV from ealy 2014 and I know I have PV In 2012…

    Apa yg aku Nak share Kat sini, betapa bernilai nya hidup di waktu sihat tapi di saat ini AKU Belajar lebih menghargai segalanya yang ada di SEKELILINGKU… Thank you Allah atas segala pengalaman ni…

  • Basically your screwed. I have been diagnosed with this. Fatigue……..dizziness….and the sweating….lovely……then the idea your on borrowed time……then it gets worse….if it gets worse heart problems….bone marrow problems……

  • Thank goodness Evan krasner of the Robert campus in Berkeley off of Shattuck diagnosed me a couple years ago I’ve been suffering for a number of years having dizzy spells and blackouts and double vision

  • I have known I’ve had PV since August 2015. I have done pretty well all things considered. I attribute this to mindset. I have good days and not so good days but knowing the difference is key. I run my own semi pro basketball league.I also started a non profit for the purpose of raising funds for furthering research for a PV cure, and of course, hoping to raise awareness of this illness. It’s about keeping self out of self. Someone has it worse than I do dealing with this cancer.

    Face it, little attention to this point has been given to PV. However I think that is starting to change though.

    Meanwhile, stay strong, be blessed, and as I always say, remember to do something nice for somebody.

  • I was diagnosed with this 3 years ago and have quite a few symptoms, my doctor said at the time it was only mild and didn’t need any treatment, which having looked it up worried me. I have asked twice more since about my condition ( which I think in 3 years is not being a nuisance ) was told quite sharply not to worry about it and shown the door. In the UK we can’t just go to another doctor you have to be referred, so I’m stuck, finding it difficult to walk, no energy and can’t breathe properly, life is getting hard at 64. Sorry going on a bit just wanted to tell someone.

  • I have high red blood cells count, I’m 34 I haven’t seen the doctor yet, blood nurse told me I needed to be retested as my blood count was high.. I’m scared �� my symptoms for getting a full blood count test.. pins and needles in feet continuously for 2 years, cold hands and feet forever, now I have sinus problems, 2 month long periods, and the tiredness is something else. I just want to sleep.

  • Had a stroke at 32. Diagnosed with PV at 37. Now 38 and getting treatment so hopefully no more problems as it’s already cost me an arm an a leg!

  • All thanks to God and Dr Oziengbe on YouTube for curing my Blood Cancer disease completely with the help of his herbal medicine He told me he also cure diseases like:’

  • There are several good support groups on Face Book just search and you will find them. I was diagnosed in Jan.19 at 71 yrs. old because I had routine blood work for a preop for knee scope. I have had it for at least 15 years undiagnosed and possibly for 40 or more and I am doing very well. It is not a death sentence for most. Take care of yourself and listen to your doctors and do what they say. Because it is such a rare disease please DO see an expert in MPNs because otherwise hemo/oncologists see it rarely and may not have the latest, best info. There are NOT a lot of them in the states so hard to find and you might have to travel but it is worth it.

  • Haha my brother told me he didn’t want me around that’s the kind of family horrible Nazi corporate sick people I’m related to and I had my hematocrit was 77 and I had all kinds of serious problems with Advanced polycythemia vera blood cancer

  • Yeah the face is red the gum tissue is inflamed the throat tissue and trachea and esophagus is all inflamed sub ceptable to having all sorts of problems I had hernia repair and it took forever to heal the blood was contaminated I had bruising throughout my torso abdomen genitals my body went septic I was taking stuff to loosen my stools because of the hernia surgery and it cause severe shooting pain in my bowels and I had to go to the emergency room and fear that something seriously was wrong

  • Was diagnosed with PV last week. I kept having night sweats, which is why I ended up getting my doctor to do blood work that ended up pointed out my hemoglobin levels were through the roof. Though this was done last year, it took them a long time to diagnose me and it’s true. It is very difficult to diagnose, and I have not told many people in my life yet. But, I just want to live my best life. I’m just 25. I want to be like any regular 25 year old.

  • In India we are always told by elders that one gets a fixed amount of breaths in a lifetime. So the faster we breath the sooner we die.

  • I was diagnosed in my early 30’s, 4 months after I had my 4 pound daughter. I had an undiagnosed blood clot that went undetected. I could have died by the time my PVera was caught. I had 5 pints drawn off of me because my Hemoglobin was so high. I had blood slugging in my brain on the left side. It was a very scary first 6 months. Now I’m 50 and it’s been 18 years since I was diagnosed.

    Recently within the last year I’ve had severe GI issues. I dropped 62 pounds due to gastric ulcers. I felt like my body was going to kill me by starving itself. I’m better now than I was but it was a rough past year. I had never had any issues until a year ago. I pray I gain back some weight because being 5’9 & 116 pounds is too thin. I can’t wait to go back to feeling like me. I don’t take life for granted, you can’t. We’re all here for a short amount of time. Live life to the fullest! I’m blessed everyday I wake up. I have a wonderful support system and a beautiful daughter. I’m so thankful my PVera was caught in time because just like this lady I fainted. Dizziness is a huge warning sign in woman. I honestly felt pregnant again. To live a full life it’s so important to be proactive in your treatment. Has Anyone else had gastric ulcers??

  • I have the opposite. I have leukemia. I found this video bc my coworker was asking if I had this when I told her I had blood cancer. Our cancer is opposites but the way it made you feel is very similar to how I felt and sometimes still do. Thank you for sharing your story! I deeply appreciate it.

  • Im doing my research on this because I believe i have this. I have all of the symptoms and my last blood work showed and increase in my rbc, hemoglobin, and hematocrit count.

  • Hi, my husband was diagnosed with Polycythemia Vera a couple years ago and he takes aspirin to thin his blood, every moth now he has taken out his blood. He feels tired, lack of energy, and I was thinking about to change his dietI am thinking about Paleo or Ketonic diet would like to know that diet would be healthy /good/ for him to feel better and have more energy. Sorry for my English it is not my mother language, but I hope you understood my question. Thank you in advance. Halina Opala

  • You shared very good information. Actually, I had this problem, then I went to Planet Ayurveda and started treatment. Now I am fine. If you have this type of problem or any other type of health problem. you should go to Planet Ayurveda.

  • My mom has it and i can’t. I’m seeing her she faints and stuff and it is hard for me and her. But i just wanna say don’t worry it will be okey. Please be happy ❤️❤️❤️

  • I was just diagnosed 1 week ago with PV and I’m wondering is there a group that you can join, or information on Nutrition,excerise, and help just understanding how to live with this.

  • Hi All… I am from malaysia, i was diagnosed in 2012 and now i am 33 Years old… In 2014 i had minor stroke on my right side and again in 2018 Disember…

  • My twin sister is Jak2 positive with essential Thrombocytosis diagnosed at 16 and I am Jak2 positive with polycythemia Vera diagnosed at 17

  • Thank you for the story, I am inspired for this. I have a dad was just diagnosed last week with Pv in his age of 57. He’s taking now with Hydroxyurea. But recently he is experiencing severe chill at night, we just have him hot compress. Hope he will be fine.

  • I am fifty i was diagnosed with Parkinson’s in 2013 and now I have just been diagnosed with polycythemia Vera I am not having much luck I don’t drink or smoke this lifes not fair

  • I was diagnosed when I was 13 when I turned 19 I needed a liver transplant because I was told at the time it shouldn’t be an issue I’m 23 years old now going strong joining Law Enforcement currently and have met the love of my life

  • I have a very confusing experience with polycythemia Vera. When I was 41 I had 2 heart attacks and was told I had polycythemiathen a few short weeks later my blood test showed no sign of the disease. Now at 62 years oldalthough not diagnosedI had another
    abnormal blood test result this time instead of having a massive over production of red cells I also had a huge overproduction of white cells in addition. After 4 months of rx vitamin D
    and repeat of blood work my results came back normal. Just under the care of primary physician who advised me not to worry about itthat it was just a
    fluke thing. Should I see a specialist to get to the bottom of it? By the way when there is an over production of both cellsmy blood they say is thick like “slush” as the lab tech describes it.
