I have been diagnosed with PV in August at age 52 with no previous health problems. A bit of a shock. I'm use to alternative treatments for all kinds of ailments and healthy diet and as soon as I was diagnosed went on a super healthy diet and took herbal treatments from a professional herbalist and accupunture and although I'm on aspirin I have refused venesection for the moment. My haematocrite count has gone slowly down and so have my platelets until Christmas where they rose a little. Anyone out there interested or have similar stories?
