Recently, because of the side effects of the vaccines, blood clotting has been one of the major concerns. Blood clotting is a normal and healthy reaction of the body to cease blood loss after sustaining a cut, scrape or gash. On the other hand a blood clot that form on the inside of arteries, veins or the heart (medically known as a thrombus) can cause irreparable damage and can be life threatening. Blood clots formed in the veins and arteries are dangerous because they reduce the flow of oxygen to the related area. This lack of oxygen (called ischemia) can lead to irreversible tissue damage. Clots that form in the arteries of the heart can cause a heart attack while clots formed in other parts of the body that become dislodged (otherwise known as an embolus) can later lodge themselves in the lungs, heart or brain. This can lead to permanent lung damage, stroke or sudden death.
As scary as this all sounds there is however a lot one can do through lifestyle choices and dietary choices to greatly reduce the risk of thrombi.
Note that there are more chances to suffer from this if one doesn’t move enough. The human body is designed to move and be active. Blood clots most commonly occur when the body is forced to be sedentary for long periods of time due to injury, disease, surgery or old age. Situations like being stuck on a flight for a long time or immobile at a desk can also increase the risk of an embolus forming.
Some medications can also increase the chance of unwanted blood clotting, in particular some cancer medications and estrogen based medications, and this is the case with what is told about the actual vaccines.
As with any disease or disorder the first nutritional step is to ensure that you have a well balanced diet. Further to this it is helpful to reduce saturated fats, increase fiber intake from whole foods and get plenty of nutrients by eating a large variety of vegetables and fruits. Finally there are certain foods that have blood thinning properties and others that have blood-clotting properties. Knowing which ones are which will also help keep things running smoothly and oxygenating your body. One of the active compounds found in aspirin, salicylate is a blood clotting inhibitor. Fortunately there are many natural foods that are also potent sources of salicylates such as strawberries, oranges, grapes, raisins, prunes, cranberries vinegar, wine, honey and cider. There are also a number of herbs and spices that are rich sources including ginger, turmeric, licorice, peppermint, paprika, cayenne, thyme and curry. Other good foods to include in your diet are omega-3 and vitamin E rich foods. Both omega-3 fatty acids and vitamin E are natural blood thinners. Wallnuts, avocados flaxseed oil & hemp seed oil are some of the foods that include both of these blood thinners. Other good foods for omega-3s include chia seeds, sunflower seeds, safflower oil and fish. Almonds and hazelnuts are wonderful sources of vitamin E as are lentils, chickpeas, oats, palm oil, canola oil and sunflower oil.
The foods to be limited by the thrombi prone are foods rich in vitamin K. These include spinach, lettuce, broccoli, kale, lettuce, asparagus, bananas and peaches. As you will have noted these are actually wonderfully healthful foods so perhaps rather than eliminating these completely from your diet, reduce them until your blood is no longer prone to clotting.
Regular exercise is another fantastic way to decrease your chances of having a blood clot. Any exercise that increases blood flow will be beneficial and activities that raise your awareness of the whole body and increase the blood flow to each and every part will be amazing! If you are able to reduce the number of “stagnant” areas in your body you will greatly reduce your chances of getting blood clots. If you have a sedentary job or lifestyle be sure to include regular breaks to move around and get blood moving. Active self-massage is another wonderful way to help stimulate both energy and blood flow. Another fantastic way to give yourself a quick shake up is body inversion/head or shoulder stands. Blood can pool in the legs when in an upright standing or seated position for too long. Getting upside down is a quick way to turn the tables quite literally. If you’ve not yet learnt or because of a medical condition are unable to stand on your hands or head simply elevating your legs for a while should have a similar effect.
