Prevent Blood Clots Naturally

Monday, 22 August 2011 09:50 AM

Question: My husband had a very mild heart attack that was surprising because his blood tests showed perfect health numbers except for LDL of 123. He has very low blood pressure, is not overweight, and isn't stressed. We agree that he should stay on Plavix. What can we do?

Dr. Blaylock's Answer:

Your husband is a perfect example of the type of person who does not fit the cholesterol theory of atherosclerosis. I differ from the medical establishment on a number of issues concerning this condition.

Plavix is a very dangerous and expensive medicine, and it is no more effective in anticoagulation than are many natural supplements such as high-EPA omega-3 oil, garlic, and ginkgo biloba.

Magnesium not only prevents excessive blood clotting, it also improves blood flow, reduces inflammation, and protects the heart and brain. Curcumin, quercetin, and high-gamma vitamin E and tocotrienol also significantly reduce fatty accumulation in the arteries and, more importantly, the hard plaque.

Studies have shown that extreme lowering of LDL cholesterol increases the likelihood of brain hemorrhages and death. Meanwhile, raising HDL cholesterol has been shown to offer no protection against heart attacks.
