It has come to my attention today that Frankincense boswellia carterri may have a problem with those on blood thinning medication, and blood cotting factor medication used by those who have a bleeding disorder such as hemophilia and Von Willebrand. We suspect that this effect may be due to the presence of Estragole, also known as Methyl chavicol, in the essential oil. According to Essential oil Safety second edition Robert Tisserand/Rodney Young, p 553, Estragole have an in vitro antiplatelet effect. This effect is compared to diluted aspirin solution. In my original research article I included Frankincense b.caterri findings today. The article is called “Frankincense b. seratta and the anti-platelet aggregation.” in this article I point out the chemical constituent “estragole” has a blood thinning effect and interacts with my son’s blood clotting medication. this was achieved just looking at the chemical breakdown reports of the oil. I notice the one constituent was estragole between all of the Frankincense Boswella oils and then looking estragole up I discovered it inhibits coagulation which is huge issue with someone with Hemophilia So these finding about Boswellia Caterri today is alarming and here is why? Serrata usually contains around 2% of estragole while carterri range between none to 0.15%, as per GC reports and communication with Hubert Marceau, a well know distinguished chemist at PhytoChemia who is very well known for his work with Essential oils and also resins. He says that In this communication included was with Robin Kessler a colleague and friend who is also a Certified Clinical Aromatherapist who specializes in resin medicines agrees that...

by Rivka Sari | Apr 24, 2016 Health, Remedies & Natural Cures |22 April 2016 Turmeric is often touted as a natural cure-all for most common ailments. It is also usually recommended as an alternative to pharmaceuticals and other medications as it is a natural substance and produces fewer side effects. Although these are all valid points, this leads many people to underestimate the effect that turmeric has on your body. Research has shown that turmeric can actually cause some serious side effects if taken in high doses or used in combination with other drugs. What is Turmeric? When people refer to “turmeric” they are usually referring to the ground-up root of the turmeric plant. The use of turmeric dates back to India almost four thousand years ago, where it was used as a culinary spice and also in medicinal and ceremonial situations. Although many of it’s claimed benefits go without scientific backing, turmeric has still been proven in many studies to provide a wide variety of health benefits. Most of turmeric’s health benefits come from the active ingredient found inside it called curcumin. Throughout the extensive studies conducted on curcumin, researchers found that curcumin exhibits anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant, anti-carcinogenic and anti-thrombotic (reduces blood clots) effects. As a result of all of these beneficial properties, people often use turmeric as an alternative to, or in combination with, other drugs that they use to treat their ailments. They often do this to avoid the complications and side effects that occur when one takes high doses of pharmaceutical drugs. However, the same properties that make turmeric so beneficial also make it dangerous to take in combination...
General Hemophilia Information (c) 2011 Written By Rivka Sari by Rivka Sari | Jan 28, 2016 | blog, essential oils for hemophilia, HEMOPHILIA, Safety, Uncategorized | 0 comment Written By: Rivka Sari (c) 2011 General Hemophilia Information Hemophilia is a rare disease that prevents the blood from clotting normally. A person with hemophilia lacks the necessary clotting factors to stop bleeding, so he often needs some sort of intermittent treatment to avoid serious blood loss in the event of a cut or injury. Approximately 20,000 Americans suffer from hemophilia. The disease can be mild, moderate or severe, depending on the how impaired a person’s clotting factors are. The idea that a hemophiliac can bleed to death from a minor cut is a fallacy. A person with hemophilia may bleed a bit longer from a minor external injury or cut, but most of these problems can be easily remedied using typical first aid practices. The biggest concern for hemophiliacs is internal bleeding because it can occur without obvious signs and can cause very serious, life-threatening situations. Bleeding into the joints, muscles and other soft tissues is of major concern. Possible Causes of Hemophilia There are two major types of hemophilia, classified depending on which particular clotting protein is missing:Hemophilia A is caused by a lack of factor VIII. It accounts for approximately 80% of all hemophilia cases. It is passed to male children from a mother who carries the disease. Hemophilia B, also caused Christmas disease, is caused by a deficiency of factor IX. It is also passed to male children by a mother who is a carrier. It is...

Micah Harrari, a Levite and master craftsman, originally built the first harp in the land of Israel in 2000 years, for his wife Shoshanna as a birthday gift. Basing his designs on the information found in the Bible, Talmud, and archeology, this first harp opened the way for many more to follow spreading the mystical sounds of David's harp from the streets of Jerusalem to the four corners of the world.
