A study that appeared in the October, 2005 issue of the journal Alcoholism: Clinical & Experimental Research found that "Alcohol consumption is inversely associated with both platelet activation and aggregation." Another study, published in 1986 in the same journal, found signs of subclinical vitamin K deficiency in a study of 20 male alcoholics. Perhaps not coincidentally, the signs of fetal alcohol syndrome closely resemble the symptoms of vitamin K deficiency in newborns.
Like there are natural blood thinners, there are foods that provide the opposite effect of thickening blood. Foods with vitamin K play an essential role in a blood coagulation process. Such foods are mostly green leafy vegetables, broccoli and cabbage that help heal cuts and wounds by coagulating blood. While being one of the most important vitamins, vitamin K can undo the benefits of your blood thinning medication or natural remedy. Talk to your doctor to work out the correct ratio of vitamin K foods to give you the most health benefits and control for thick blood.
Bottom line QUIT TAKING THESE POISONOUS PRESCRIPTION DRUGS!!! They do more harm than good. I speak from experience. I am going against my doctor and will take myself off the medication I’m currently on. Tried talking to my doctor and it was like talking to a brick wall. Don’t tell me that only a prescription drug made in a factory can prevent or treat blood clots, that is BS!! The doctors are in this business to MAKE MONEY! They don’t really care about your health. They can’t benefit from the natural medication so therefore they will be against it. Change your diet, more water, exercise, eliminate the sweets, soda pop, fried foods (at least in moderation and always balance with fruits & veggies). You should be A-OK. Quit taking these doctors word as law, they are not God, and many of you would eat dog dookie if your doctor would prescribe it to you.
