Blood thinner question

Postby jmhill79 » Thu Dec 10, 2009 1:19 am


Just wonder if there would be beneficial to take a blood thinner like aspirin to help blood flow ie drainage. I know this is over simplified but I imagine water through a funnel vs oil through a funnel. Regardless of the restriction it would seem to at least help.

For those that have not been screened yet or have been but have not had the procedure what do you think? Could it help alleviate at least some symtoms?

I am just trying to think of alternatives because while this seems very promising it could be a while before this is a standard test and procedure.

I agree with that. Tho there could be some 'stomach' problems for some people??
(not me - my stomach is like a toilet siphon; whatever goes in just disappear...)

Also how much is enough to make the blood thinner ?

Algis - I think one of the best things you can do to keep your blood thin is to follow a strict diet.

I am currently on a modified Swank diet - see here: Dr George Jelinek has written an excelent book on the subject. He has got MS as well, and he is doing very well, following his own advice :-)

This diet has helped me - I am feeling a lot better than I did before - the MS fatigue is not so bad for me now.

The most important thing in this diet is to stop eating saturated fat and trans-fatty acids.

IbRiz: fatigue is not an issue with me... As a triplegic I don't have much to do therefore cant get tired...

and "diet" is not part of my vocabulary :) I will eat and drink and live to the extent (or not).

My choice tho :)

I read about some unexpected contra-indications to aspirin a short while ago, and remember being shocked. I'm sorry that I don't remember the details, or have links. I thought it was quite serious though.

I use very high doses of nattokinase (enzymes), and there is ample clinical evidence that it reduces blood pressure, and does all good things for heart and vasculature. Try PubMed for more info. Or Google (just the Med sites - not Johnson's anonymous health tips .com)

I would recommend avoiding any formulations that have serraptase in them - that breaks down fibrin (so does natto, but not as aggressively), and the plaques are fibrin (scar tissue). I have been having a long exacerbation since I started the serraptase, and I have a theory that the plaques are breaking down in my brain, and allowing more iron in, and the immune system too.

Talk to your doctor about the nattokinase. Any decent cardiologist will know about it.

Rutin is very good too - found in orange root vegetables like yams, rutabaga, etc. You can buy it in supplement form.

Inclined Bed Therapy looks very promising too. There is a link on the main page.

Best of luck, and remember that I am only relating my own thoughts, and not medical advice.
