I am a little confused. Do you soak whole flax seeds and then chew on those, or do you grind them up and then soak and chew? In your first post, you wrote: "I soak 4 tsps overnight in water and tip off the excess water in the morning and chew them up when I wake up. I use whole linseeds to ensure t...

Previously she would go several times to the loo and most times get to the loo and not want to go. But as soon as we starte...

I had venoplasty with Dr. Siskin. No blood thinners prescribed. I am presently in a situation now with my left internal jug 100% blocked due to clotting.

Re: Broccoli, kale, and blood

Last year my wife tried having green smoothies/juices but everytime she had one within 5 minutes she would have a spasm.
