Blood clotting problems are among the most serious and concerning of conditions. This is mainly because they usually come without obvious warning and have sweeping and serious effects, and initially are 50% of the time fatal. Stroke, heart attacks, pulmonary embolism, deep vein thrombosis, and TIA’s (transit ischemic attacks, or mini-strokes) are the common names used to describe the damage from a blood clot. We consider early warning signs to include, symptoms of severe headaches, muscle twitching or cramping, abdominal pain, swelling of limbs and a sudden sense of just not feeling well.
Our point of view is prevention is the best treatment. This is a very complex process. It must be addressed by looking at the big picture, including life style, hormones and metabolic imbalances and chronic infections, as well as with patient specific clotting testing and treatment.
Since insulin strongly promotes clotting formation and is commonly overlooked, our treatment approach frequently includes a low carbohydrate diet, smart drugs, nutrients, herbs, hormone balancing and forms of heparin. We also test extensively for genetic problems if this hasn’t already been done.
This is a serious problem, which to our surprise is frequently not taken seriously enough. This is where human nature with the belief that “if it hasn’t killed me yet I must be ok” can be very harmful. Comprehensive initial prevention is the best approach.
