Why People Take Blood Thinners

  • Primary prevention for heart attack and stroke. Minimal if any benefit and aspirin may increase your risk of stroke and dying.
  • After a stent in place in an artery
  • Atrial fibrillation
  • After a heart attack or stroke (secondary prevention)
  • After open-heart surgery
  • After a deep venous thrombosis (DVT) or pulmonary embolism (PE)
  • Mechanical artificial heart valve

Let me outline some simple strategies that go a long way in keeping your blood flowing at its best with minimal risk of forming clots.

  • Eat organic, Paleo foods. It makes common sense that those who eat fast food, drink soda pop, and have ice cream every night before bed is more likely to clot. Keep your blood naturally thin with lots of vegetables, spices/herbs, nuts and seeds, and wild seafood.
  • Get sunshine. The sun promotes blood flow and lowers clotting risk. Get sun to your chest, brain, pelvis, and legs, especially BEFORE long trips by plane or car. Travel is a dangerous time for potential clots. The sun creates the Exclusion Zone, leading to good blood flow.
  • Hydrate with quality water. Dehydration thickens the blood like a drought dries a river.
  • Donate blood.
  • Sleep with the sundown.
  • Limit stress.
  • Stay active. Physical activity promotes healthy blood flow to all your organs. Do it outside.
