Recently my girlfriend shared a video of a 6 year old violin prodigy on facebook that got my attention. The 6 year old’s name is Caesar and he’s an extremely incredible violin player. He is facing a very difficult challenge though, at such a young age.
He has sickle cell anemia, which has made it quite difficult for him to live the normal life of a 6-year old let alone play the beautiful music that he’s incredibly gifted at playing. He has incredible talent and a great heart. This video may bring you to tears as it already has for many.
The reason i’m sharing this video with you is quite simple. Having worked in the health and wellness space for years for years I have seen many tremendous recoveries and have seen many people restore their health and overcome very difficult health challenges. I’ve seen my mother recover and heal from stage 4 cancer first-hand. I’ve seen many countless people who I now learn from, share or collaborate with heal from so many health ailments or diseases.
Personally I believe that anything is possible when it comes to the human body. I believe that nutrition is pure magic. When it comes to the God-given gifts of this earth we benefit from them tremendously when we utilize them properly.
I want to help Caesar in a way that may be of tremendous value to him and his family an i’m asking for your help. I’ll get to that in a minute, but first watch this video to learn more about Caeser and how sickle cell anemia has impacted his life.

I wrote Caesar’s father on facebook and he responded. Here’s where I could use your help! I’d love to come up Nutritional protocols and other alternative therapies that may help to reverse sickle cell anemia and make a difference. The operation is quite costly and is nearly impossible for most families to come up with but I know that with the knowledge of many people all working together towards a common goal we can make a difference. The information to help Caesar heal from sickle cell anemia is out there, doctors, scientists and nutritionists and many other health professionals can offer help.
What is sickle cell anemia?
Sickle cell anemia is is a group of disorders that affects hemoglobin, the molecule in red blood cells that delivers oxygen to cells throughout the body. People with this disorder have atypical hemoglobin molecules called hemoglobin S, which can distort red blood cells into a sickle, or crescent, shape. (via google search)
What is Hemoglobin?
Hemoglobin is a protein molecule found in red blood cells that carry oxygen from the lungs to all the body’s tissues and then also returns carbon dioxide from the tissues back into the lungs.
Interestingly enough marine mammals have higher levels of hemoglobin in the blood than land mammals.
I did some research into sickle cell anemia (also known as sickle cell disease) and into red blood cell health, hemoglobin and what can help on a nutritionally.
According to Pubmed.gov people with sickle cell anemia suffer from low bone density and in 2 different sickle cell university programs it was found that the majority (essentially 98%) of sickle cell patients had low vitamin d levels with 60% of these patients being severely low in vitamin d levels. Vitamin d is best absorbed by getting sunshine without sunscreen, as well as not washing the skin topically with soaps for up to 48 hours for full absorption, here’s how to avoid losing vitamin d absorption into the skin. Here’s also a list of vitamin d foods.
Chlorophyll is the pigment in plants that makes them green, it’s a naturally occurring molecule that most closely mimics human blood. Chlorophyll helps to cleanse the blood, build the blood and increase oxygen in the blood. More chlorophyll in your diet helps to regulate and improve overall blood health.
Eat Zinc Rich Foods:
Zinc is an important mineral that helps cells prevent getting damaged. It has also been found that a large majority sickle cell sufferers are zinc deficient. Zinc plays a role in red blood cells and hemoglobin levels as well. Zinc rich foods include pumpkin seeds, cashews, spinach, cacao (dark chocolate), beans and mushrooms. Meats and dairy can be rich in zinc also but they can also cause other problems that may affect sickle cell so it may be best to get your zinc from plant rich sources.
Balance Mineral Intake:
According to Harvard medical school sickle cells accumulate excessive quantities of calcium. Calcium is stored by the body and excess calcium can cause problems. In adults excess calcium can lead to bone spurs, arthritis, excess calcium buildup in the arteries can be fatal. Magnesium is a crucial mineral to help balance levels of excess calcium in the body. Magnesium rich foods are leafy greens and cacao (once again) cacao (dark chocolate) is actually the richest source of magnesium on the planet and helps provide both magnesium and zinc which are beneficial for sickle cell.
Sickle cell disease can be difficult to deal with and seeing how Caesar was suffering from this made me want to hopefully make a difference just by sharing a few nutritional ideas. How can you help? If you work in the health and wellness field in any way. If you are a doctor, nurse, scientist of if you’ve suffered from sickle cell anemia yourself and have found a nutritional, or natural based approach that has helped you please write Caesar Sant on facebook (his father runs the page) and give him ideas that you think may offer help. You can follow and message that facebook page here.
The operation is very costly as you saw in the video and I know that with enough of the right information Caesar can be helped. The information and expertise is out there so hopefully this article helps draw some of that in and direct it in a useful way! Thank you for your support 🙂
