Natural Remedies to Treat or Cure Phlebitis or Deep Vein Thrombosis
Phlebitis is the inflammation of a vein. Deep vein thrombophlebitis affects the larger blood vessels deep in the legs. Large blood clots can form, which may break off and travel to the lungs. This serious condition is called a pulmonary embolism.

02/28/2009: Virginia from Otto, NC : "Cayenne Pepper in helping prevent returning DVT? I need help in finding the right vitamins to help prevent DVT returning in my leg. My left leg is damaged from DVT and I am currently on Coumadin. I need something to help without messing up my coumadin. Can anyone help me?"Replies
[YEA] 07/05/2010: Julie from Coventry, England replies: "I believe Cayenne saved my life. I fell whilst out shopping and, though my pride was hurt, I felt o.k. Later same evening felt pain in my left foot, couldn't bend my toes.Went to bed but pain kept me awake, felt dreadfully sick, so rushed to bathroom. Next thing I remember is saying to my husband that I had fallen over. My husband tryed to pick me up, but I had passed out again. He called an ambulance and paramedic took my b.p. 64 over 50. My b.p. was so low i couldn't even open my eyes.Then suddenly I felt a rush of heat through my entire body and felt dramatically better, b.p. started to rise. Hospital Dr. said i had severe sprain, ( rubbish, 2hours later i am walking as normal), foot had a red swelling on top he gave it no importance, but through later research I believe it was a blood clot. I always take Cayenne with my evening meal. Thanks be to God. I dread to think what might have happened had I not.This stuff rocks, it brought down husband's blood pressure, believe it dissolves arterial plaque. Anyway, you guys go buy some. I will never be without it."

08/25/2011: John from Huntersville, North Carolina: "I have been diagnosed with phlebitis in my leg - from what I understand, phlebitis is caused by poor blood flow, usually because of clotting. I have a condition called ITP, which basiclly means, my platelet count is very low, I have trouble clotting all the time. So I find it hard to imagine a clot causing me any problems. Blood flow in general might be another issue - I am somewhat sedentary, although I do a good amount of walking in my full time job."Replies
08/25/2011: Granny Laura from Waco, Tx Usa replies: "I have had phlebitis in my left leg since my first pregnacy, in 1960. I was put on an allergy diet in 1980. I first noticed that if I ate sugar my leg would swell worse the next day. Later I noticed that if I ate wheat that my leg would feel like there was something crawling inside my leg about an inch deep, it also swelled worse.
Since phlebitis is an inflammation and both wheat and sugar can cause inflammation, I suggest you cut both of those things out of your diet for a month and see what happens. Exercise will improve the circulation, and is good for your general good health. Good luck!"
08/25/2011: Maria from Gippsland, Australia replies: "John, Thrombophlebitis is the one that is caused by blood clots. My belief is that the lymph system is involved more than people think. People on EC have had success with Ted's lemon alkalizing remedy so I would be doing that first, if you are not already. http://www.earthclinic.com/CURES/phlebitis.html
I have had great success with bowen therapy for an arm. The trip to the ER did not help except for the start of a diagnosis, but the bowen did. It did take nearly a week to see some results but the pain releif was imediately started. Also ginger is good for peripheral circulation."
Ted from Bangkok, Thailand: "The formula is simple, take 1/2 or 1 whole freshly squeezed lemon, or lime and add the baking soda until the fizz stops. Then add water to 1/2 glass, then drink this. It should tastes like water. The lemon is an antioxidant and the water your drinking is very close in biological terrain of ORP (oxidation reduction potential) of at least -100. It is more closer to -200, but this will normalize the likely millivolt imbalances in your body."

03/15/2011: Ashu from Nashik, Maharashtra, India replies: "Hi Ted... Just want to ask u, I am already patient of DVT and my left leg is always swelled. Also I am wearing stocking for day to control the swelling. Please suggest me some home made remedies so that I could get relife from swelling and stocking. Please do reply..."
04/22/2011: Juliet from Alpine, Wyoming, Usa replies: "Remedy: honey cayenne vinegar, and massaging coconut oil with garlic, and coconut oil with lavender --my husband had dvt clot last summer. In order to take down the leg swelling I would very gently massage coconut oil on his legs and toward the heart. Sometimes I would add lavender, or garlic, to the coconut oil, (depending on what I had ready). The herbs seemed to help dilate the swollen veins and tissues quicker than just the coconut oil alone. It was usually about 20-30 minutes of massage (done nightly) before the swelling would go down. He stayed pretty active (when he was not having his leg up). I think it was about two weeks before his leg stopped swelling. (he was also drinking honey cayenne vinegar --at least 1 qt daily.)"
Ted's Remedy Feedback
[YEA] 07/11/2011: Luis from Cali, Colombia: "Thank you very much, Ted. God bless you. My mother 90-years old was in pain for a week because of a superficial venous thrombosis. She couldn't walk. Then, after drinking 3 glasses of your formula the pain disappeared completely and now we are back to walk together in our daily exercise. I wish you stay doing much good for humanity for many years ahead. You already win the heaven.
I wonder if this remedy is useful as a preventive therapy for superficial and deep venous thrombosis?
07/12/2011: Ted from Bangkok, Thailand replies: "Basically the alkalizing, bromelain, digestive enzymes, and vitamin E, does more than superficial deep vein thrombosis. The blood thickness or viscosity is high leading to blood clots, the remedy will help circulation and basically reduce the blood clots and therefore deep vein thrombosis. They are shaped that way because of blood is too thick and therefore veins get obstructed.
08/31/2011: Cole from Cali, Valle De Cauca, Colombia replies: "Ted wish I had read the remedy Weeks ago. Just got out the the hospital after 8 days. Question is can I take your remedy while still on warafrina. I want off this drug and Clenox as well."
09/02/2011: Cole from Cali, Colombia replies: "Well Ted couldn't wait to see if complications would occur. So I did a Davey D, just good old common sense and pain has gone with in 30 minutes. Let's see what happens as things continue. I ahve an appointment with one of the best Biomedical Dr. S in the world. Dr. Arturo O'Byerne in Cali he is my English student and was out of town when this problem occured. I am anxious for him to get back.
Thanks Ted you saved me from a lot of pain. Leg felt as if were about to expolde like a sausage on the BBQ pit."
12/12/2009: Joseph from Bend, Or: "Ted Remedies, perhaps natural cures would be more accepted if they didn't say things like half to whole lemon/lime, baking soda until fizzing stops, and add water to half a glass. Ted, how big is this glass 300ml, 8oz, 950ml, 32oz.? Then you start talking about millivolts? I guess I am supposed to be a psychic and a scientist."
EC: Somewhat better instructions here: http://www.earthclinic.com/Remedies/alkalizing_formulas.html
Glass size: 8 oz.
11/02/2010: Davey D from Vancouver Bc , Canada replies: "Joseph your frustration is evident in your post. I for one am grateful for Ted's remedies and through my own understanding have used what seems to be common measurements. That being said I use a 8 ounce glass with enough real lemon juice out of a bottle bought at the local grocery store to equal a fresh squeezed lemon. If you want to know how much juice that is then measure it yourself as I just use a rough estimate. After the fizzing stops I fill the glass ½ full of water from the tap or some times using flavored water. I do this to relieve the swelling in my feet that I feel at bedtime although they don't appear as swollen. My ankles hurt with pressure as well. 10 minutes after taking this remedy I have relief and am able to fall asleep. Thank God for scientist like Ted and their remedies. They deserve more than just a pat on the back for their help and understanding. No need for psychics here just common sense. Davey D."
09/23/2009: Charlene from Eagar, Arizona: "I want to try the lemon-bicarbonate remedy for blood clots in my feet. I also have varicose veins. But I didn't see the exact amount of bicarbinate to use with the juice of a whole lemon. I did try the juice of one lemon and about 3/4 tsp.baking soda then I filled the glass half full of water. I did not taste the lemon juice but it was the same as drinking soda water, salty. It was supposed to taste like water so I must have put too much soda. Could you please send me the exact measurements. My half glass of combined liquid was probably about 6 oz. Also my doctor advised me to stay away from salt as my blood pressure is too high. Will using soda that is high in sodium increase my blood pressure? I cannot take the blood thinners as I have a bad reaction to them. Thank you for your help. Sincerely, Charlene."
[YEA] 04/20/2009: Leila from Amsterdam, The Netherlands: "Dear Ted, your remedy against Phlebitis works so well, it's absolutely amazing. I have varicose veins, they're not on the surface and so my legs look smooth, but on the inside the veins feel tense. I had Phlebitis three times before, the last time it lasted for 6 weeks and I was in so much pain, I thought I was going crazy.
I work in a shop, so there's lots of standing on my feet all day long. A few days ago, I sensed the first signs of an upcoming Phlebitis; a spot on my calf as large as my hand felt hot and inflamed. Aimed a cold shower at it and searched the condition here at EC. I had one lemon in the fridge (hurrah) and baking soda is always at hand in my house since I found EC, so I mixed teh two just like you said, filled the glass with water and drank it down. Within 30 minutes, the heat had left the spot on my leg! I could hardly believe it, but it's true. Thank you so much."
[YEA] 11/24/2006: D : "Thank you again Ted, I have good news to report. My brother, after only a few days on lemon-bicarbonate twice a day says that his phlebitis is practically gone (not only better). He has suffered with this leg's vein for three years and tried everything but after just 4-5 days of this remedy his pain is completely gone, he feels the vein "fresh" vs the "fire" he felt before. He cannot believe it... My mother who is 74 and has a lot of problems is feeling much better too. She didn't have any appetite, most of the times she wouldn't have dinner just because she didn't feel like eating (she also has memory loss, stomach problems, always exhausted, what seems a chronic cough etc.) after the same amount of days she says she is very hungry and that she can be active all day long. She is having three meals a day now!! Thank you so much for this really healing water!!! All the best, D"
Teds' Remedy Feedback
[YEA] 03/27/2010: Justin from Chester, Ct: "My mother in law had terribly painful phlebitis in her legs. She didn't know what to do, so me and my wife first searched for natural cures. Well, after reading the feedback from several people, we passed the simple recipe from Ted (lemon juice and baking soda). And wouldn't you know it, she called us back after a week, absolutely amazed, and said the pain was gone. She still talks about it. We're so happy to have found something so simple that actually helped and we want to tell other people to give it a try. Now, since being involved in a car accident, she's actually going to try the acupuncture we've been telling will help her with her pain. Small things can make a big difference. Glad to have found your site and like-minded people."Replies
12/21/2012: Lloyd from Charlotte, Nc replies: "If the lemon/soda remedy doesn't work try the herb horse chestnut. I suppose that it can be called an herb. I've seen it work many times on deep vein problems. Start with two tablets daily and increase to four if needed. My mother had very serious leg problems, possibly from her MS condition and if the flare up was pain in the vein area, like inflamation, the horse chestnut worked every time... Without exception. I mentioned this to an attendant at my health food store and she responded that many of her customers have great success using it.
For general pain in the legs that might be related to MS causes, I found Calcium AEP was very effective. Dr Adkins used that in his protocol for his MS patients fed into them by an IV. Reading all the amazing things that Cal AEP (not just calcium... it must be the AEP) does, I take two capsules daily."
