I have low blood platelets count. How to increase it. Is there any permanent remedy for this problem.

Papaya leaves, anti-oxidants that are present in food tend to neutralize the free radicals and thus help cope with the decrease in platelet count. Berries such as strawberries, blueberries etc. Are found to be rich in anti-oxidants and consuming them in good quantities may help in increasing platelet count, fruits and vegetables: fresh fruits and vegetables, that are organic in nature, contain loads of micronutrients such as vitamins, especially vitamin k that plays an important role in blood clotting, minerals etc. These are found to be very essential for humans. Green leafy vegetables, dark green vegetables such as lettuce and parsley, olive, soy bean, kale, broccoli, cauliflower, cabbages, tomatoes omega 3 fatty acids: foods such as fish, flax seed, walnut, spinach etc. Are few examples of omega-3 fatty acids rich foods. Vegetable juices: aloe vera juice, beetroot juice and carrot juice are believed to help improve the platelet count. Aloe vera juice should be taken after every meal, which is believed to be ideal. Taking 2 or 3 tablespoons of beetroot juice mixed with carrot juice twice a day can boost the platelet count in just a few days.
