I had a swelling in my right calf that was throbbing and it felt like needles or it felt like a balloon filled with water ready to explode and it was extremely hot to touch. I went to my clinic and was informed that I'd have to return the following week and see a Specialist. The appointment was made and I went home.

Had phoned my sister-in-law in Donegal, Ireland and told her as I was starting to worry at this point with no relief and she told me to get some Molasses and taking 2 tablespoons daily and it will make it disappear!

Sunday evening when I got home I took 2 tablespoon fulls, repeated it Monday morning and night, same Tuesday and Wednesday too and took another on Thursday morning.

Went to my appointment on Thursday afternoon and was asked to roll up my pants and the Specialist looked at my chart and then to both my legs and back and forth and then he says to me, "Which leg is the affected one?" and told him that I was not sure as it was his opinion that I wanted to hear and then his words were: "You're wasting both my time and your own..." that I had no blood clot and to get out of here and be thankful.

I knew it was the Molasses that cured me and I've been telling that story to everyone except the medical staff. For they would never believe me!

Thanks,

Desmond Campbell

Hi Everyone. About 3 weeks ago, I went to tbe emergency room because of deep vein thrombosis. In layman's term, I had a blood clot in my right leg. The pain was intense, and I was given tylenol and a blood thinner. I was discharged after 10 hours and prescribed expensive pharmaceuticals. While I at the hospital, I went on this site and looked up the cures. The blackstrap molasses and red cayenne pepper took a few days to work. After the fourth day, the pain was gone and my leg went back to normal. I saw my physician the following week and was put on a blood thinner. He said he knew that blackstrap and red pepper worked but wanted to be safe than sorry. He took labs, and I go back next week. He said the clot is gone but wants to observe me for another week. I'm happy to have physician that believes in alternative therapies as well.

Have verified thousands of blood clots in my veins of my vascular system to date. I have been diagnosed by some doctors and not all as having the Antiphospholipid Antibody Syndrome. to date I have been to the Mayo Clinic for an endovascular procedure which was aborted due to not enough blood flow to my iliac and inferior vena cava veins for the stints to effectively work. Upon returning I have developed new blood clots in both of my femora veins and now have even more pain. I would love input as to how much cayenne and blackstrap molasses to take daily so as to reverse this mess of blood clots in my vascular system and to eliminate the need to get off of warfarin for the rest of my life. My goal is to not only go back to the Mayo Clinic next year, but to prove to them that I am not sol and are proof that God not only cares, but this system of natural cures needs to be considered by the largest hospital in the world contrary to the big pharmaceutical companies interests. This true story of mine should be of grave interest to many and hopefully with input can not only save my life, but do so with no pain in the future. I really want to get the word out so many may benefit from me and live, not die for no reason.

I read about Blackstrap Molasses and its ability to remedy female issues, and I was amazed. I have rather large fibroids, extreme bleeding and clots. My doctors have looked at a number of treatments from meds to surgery. I started taking 3 tablespoon of molasses a day about 2 months ago. I was schedule for surgery which had to be re-scheduled 3x due to other issues. But, it's my belief that all the re-scheduling was the universes way of protecting me from an un-needed surgery. I'm not bleeding as heavy, reduced blood clots and shorter cycle. I spoke to my natural pathetic doctor and she has no documented information about these types of benefits of molasses. Can anyone tell me why and how blackstrap molasses seems to reverse and reduce these female issues? This is my third month on the molasses, any suggestions as to how long to take the product? Thank you for your helpful information, this is a wonderful site.

Thank you Desmond for taking the time to post this. The same thing happened to me.J ust below my knee on the calf of my leg. It just kept swelling and it was red. We had just watched Dr. Oz the day before, and he told of the symptoms of a blood clot. It was scary.

I am not one to run to the doctor for just what ever. But I thought well now I have to go. Did not expect to find any help for a blood clot. OK, Blackstrap molasses, really .I went straight to the grocery store (I brought my Tblsp) with me. Took it before I left the parking lot .I was desperate. It has been a week now. And the clot seems to be gone.I took 2 tbls a day mixed in 6oz. of milk. I plan to keep taking it. Maybe not as much, but it seems to be a healthy addition to anyones diet. I used the Brer Rabbit brand because the lable showed to have more iron and magnesium than the grandmas brand. Hope this helps someone.

Cayenne for Blood Clots

I read the book 'Left for dead" two years ago just for information at that moment, however I decided to take cayenne pepper regularly. I bought empty capsules and I filled them up with cayenne pepper, very easy to do. I took them for a while. That was two years ago. Yesterday and today my right leg got very swollen and pulsating pain. Tonight I went to the kitchen and got organic apple cider vinegar in water and took two cayenne pepper capsules with that drink. In less that forty minutes I already felt relief! My leg is better right now. I'm going to sleep and tomorrow I will take more cayenne pepper capsules. That's what I do to increment my consumption of ginger, cinnamon and cayenne pepper for now. Anything that it doesn't have a great flavor I just use capsules! How many capsules? Two or three with each meal, this is food not a medicine, you can take cayenne pepper and apple cider vinegar forever.

Ted's Remedies
Posted by Davey D (Vancouver Bc , Canada) on 11/02/2010

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.

I just wanted to add to Desmond's post from 2013 on how effective Molasses is for dissolving clots.

I had read about it on Earthclinic for my partner's father who had a hip replacement and because they held his ankle too tightly, created a permanent clot that the Doctors gave him meds for so the blood could travel through the clot.

They told him it was impossible to remove the clot but that his foot would survive with the blood travelling through it.

I told him about Molasses and he used a 1-2 tbspns a day. After 4 bottles and a few months later, the clot was completely gone.

First, consider magnesium. So many things are blamed for poor circulation (cholesterol, plaque, calcium deposits, hardening of arteries) as well as clots. Though some of these or all of these may be a factor they often are not the cause at all. If magnesium levels are low arteries do not contract in sequence with the heart. In fact when magnesium levels are low arteries may quiver squeezing at the wrong time that in turn may cause the calcium in the blood to accumulate thereby blowing out or tearing the artery resulting finally in the accumulation of cholesterol. Doctors then illogically conclude that cholesterol is the culprit when in reality cholesterol is seen there as a consequent rather than a cause. The body signals for the cholesterol to patch up the break--and by no means is it the cause.

While the practitioners are blaming calcium, cholesterol, and many other things the real problem is magnesium deficiency. A large percentage of magnesium is in the left ventricle of the heart--and it is a sad commentary that most Doctors are completely unaware of where magnesium is and the role that it plays in body chemistry.


Juice Fast

I had pulmonary embolism blood clots all over my lungs. I woke up one morning and had chest pain every time I breath I went over to my daughter (being a paramedic) I figures she would know what to do, she did, to the hospital I went. They stabilized me and after eight days I came out using Warfarin. After 4 months I was introduced to a person who has been a raw vegan for 15 yrs. And he directed me to do a juice fast for which was consuming nothing but juice for 3 months. I bought a good juicer, one that presses the produce and proceeded to juice what Dr. Walker suggested in his book Fresh Vegetable and Fruit Juices. The recipes I used were for Arteries, Arteriosclerosis. After a month on juicing my Dr. took me off the Warfarin and was amazed as to how clean my blood was and that I had lost 20 Lbs of excess weight. Two months later my Dr. check my blood again and was even more startled, my blood cholesterol had dropped from 314 to 170, my blood pressure from 150 to 106 and all toll I lost 50 Lbs of unwanted fat. After the juicing I became a Raw Vegan and still am. Whenever my Dr. calls me in for a visit he is amazed as to how healthy I am. I will never go back to eating Cooked food or the SAD diet (Standard American Diet) I eat fruit, vegetables, nuts, seeds, and sprouts and a combination of these. I feel great in fact better than I ever have.

Nattokinase, Serrapeptase, Lumbrokinase +

Hello,

I just wanted to share some info on some amazing stuff, maybe you guys know all about it, Nattokinase, Serrapeptase and Lumbrokinase. I was diagnosed with a DVT (blood clot) in my lower right leg, below the knee (serious but not as dangerous as above the knee)...My Docs all ranted about me refusing to take injections of Heparin then go onto Eliquis or Warfarin.I chose instead to treat this with Nattokinase, Serrapeptase and some supplements... DMSO topically 2X/day on leg... with Mag oil.

Will be adding or cycling the Lumbrokinase (Boluoke) starting today.

I have seen amazing progress in this one week, in the swelling, redness and pain, knock on wood! Elaquis and Warfarin do NOTHING to dissolve clots, they just keep them from growing... most times. With all sorts of side effects and risks of major bleeds.

Here is some interesting info if anyone wants to check it out:

Alkalizing Remedies
Posted by Mama To Many (Middle, Tennessee, Usa) on 07/24/2013

Dear Vicki, The Lemon/soda/water remedy would surely be worth a try!

I have been thinking about this for a couple of days and wondering what I would do if this were my loved one and here are some things I thought of...

Cayenne Pepper... Cayenne is very good for the blood and circulation. It may even dissolve the clots over some time. If you can find Dick Quinn's book, Left for Dead, he talks about how much this (and other herbs) helped him deal with his health after his bypass surgery. Cayenne does thin the blood, though, so you might look into its compatibility with Coumadin. (We have a friend who went off Coumadin and did cayenne and vinegar (similar to the lemon soda idea) and has had no trouble with his A-fib. Also his blood pressure is down for the first time in decades.) Anyway, try to find a "cool cayenne" formula -one with some ginger in it so it is less likely to cause heartburn. Start with one capsule a day. Over a week or two, work up to 2 capsules 3x a day with meals. I would look for one that is about 40, 000 heat units. Or, if you want to try it straight, take 1/4 t. In grape juice 1x a day. Work up to 1/2 teaspoon 3 x a day. It is spicy this way but you get used to it and I think the stomach likes it better when it has the "heads up" in your mouth. :)

If he is able to get in the bathtub, I would have him take a charcoal bath. 1/2 to 1 cup activated charcoal powder in the tub, soak for 20 minutes. Tub will be messy and he will need to shower after. But charcoal is amazing at drawing out toxins and swelling. This could be done 2-3 times a week. If that is too messy, try an epsom salt bath instead. 1-2 cups epsom salt in the tub.

If he is able to go for daily walks that would be super.

Water is very important. At least 1/2 gallon a day. This is needed to help flush out the swelling. I had edema after the birth of a baby and the nurses said I need to drink a lot. Seemed counter-intuitive, but it did work. Make sure he gets enough salt. (Celtic sea salt would be the best. ) Keep caffeine, soda, and processed foods to a minimum. Fruit and veggies are important.

Finally, Dandelion Root. This is a blood purifier and will also help get the fluids out. 2-4 capsules 3-4 times a day.

Praying for wisdom for you and health for him! God bless you! Please let us know how it goes!

Take a combination of the Serrapeptase and Nattokinase enzymes. They both are powerful proteolytic enzymes that has fibrinolytic health benefits. They are best known for their astounding fibrinolytic (anti-clotting) capacities. They both digests inflammation, scars (non-living tissue), blood clots, cysts, arterial plaque and inflammation in all forms. Protects against stroke and is reportedly more effective and quicker than EDTA Chelation treatments in removing arterial plaque.


DMSO

DMSO thins the blood, naturally. Way better than warfarin or coumadin. There are books on it by Naturopathic doctors and such, attesting to its healing qualities. Here is my experience:

Had a hard fall mostly on my shin, it hurt but I got up by myself and walked away as I had errands to do. Got home 2 hrs later, noticed my leg didn't hurt anymore and was surprised to see it had swollen to 1.5x its size! I did icepacks, elevation & acv/epsom salt soaks. I also applied DMSO 4x a day.

About a week later I was on a flight sitting beside a doctor, still swollen. He thought it could be DVT related and told me to see a Dr. Not wanting to take warfarin or coumadin, I stepped up the DMSO (rubbed on leg only) to every 2 hrs, and arranged to drink 3 or 4 750ml bottles of water one afternoon/night, and the next day my leg was back to almost-normal.

I have a good lymph system, I've been told. I wanted to open the dam sluices and get that excess water out! I peed alot that night. Only I could tell there was still a little swelling left at the ankle, which was gone soon after. I boarded my next flight the next day with no problem with my leg.

I haven't seen DMSO mentioned as a blood thinner, so I wanted to mention it is worth asking a Naturopath about and looking into on your own.

Best of Healing, everyone.

Vitamin C

I have used vitamin c for years for bleeding gums, bad nosebleeds and any other bleeding problems. I either take a stress vitamin with 500vit c or just a vit. c by itself -preferably a chewable one. Especially during menopause -taking 500 vit c every 3-4 hours will stop hemoraging and blot clots and normalize the flow. You must take it every 3-4 hrs. or it will start up again. It is better if at least one of the doses is a stress b vit with 500 added vit.c in it. I fell and hit my head on a concrete wall and opened a 4 inch gapin my scalp with excessive bleeding. I chewed 2 500 vit. c and immediately the bleeding completely stopped, helping me on the inside and outside of my head. I didn't have to have any drainage from fluid buildup inside my head and the wound healed very fast. Vit c normalizes the blood-helps with blood clots that are already there to help dissolve them and is so important is excessive bleeding that no one should ever go to the dentist or go into surgery without taking it if you bleed easily. It could save your life. I used to literally take a sheet to bed with me after haveing a tooth pulled to wipe the blood on. After I learned about vit c and took it before i went to the dentist, the bleeding stopped before I got off the parking lot. I really think I could have even done better without the cotton! Hope this helps someone keep from having an hysterectomy or other complications. I have used vit c for these things for over 30 years. I don't take it on a regular basis, mostly if I get sick with a cold or stomach flu which about 10 grams -I take it in peanut butter and syrup- the powdered vit c. Take 2 doses about a hour apart sometimes will kill stomach flu completely out if you catch it in time. Thanks.

Cayenne pepper and garlic are said to be the roto-rooter of the veins/arteries. (read Dick Quin "Left for Dead" and also research Dr. Christopher) These two things taken together help to dissolve clots/plaque/cholesterol. Cayenne opens up your veins to allow for better blood flow.

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.

I thought I had a blood clot in my left leg. Me being holistic I automatically came to your website and amazingly found the cure before it got any worse. I went walking for about 20 minutes a day for 2 days and had some ginger soaked overnight in water(luckily had it already soaked for other health reasons)and by the next day no more tingling or throbing in my leg.

Sodium Citrate

Sodium citrate did help me greatly after having my blood drawn 2 months ago which resulted in what felt like painful clots in my left withdrawal arm and a kinked feeling on left side of my heart.

I started taking the sodium citrate and my clot pain stopped (clots cleared) and the kinked feeling left within 2 days.

Tumor cyst cheese theory and sodium citrate progress

Before or with meals and snacks (4 times per day) I still take 1/2 level teaspoon of the surfactant sodium citrate. It's used as an anticoagulant in blood products. Also, it removes calcium scale from boilers without shutting them down. It also melts cheese without heating it when making nacho and mac & cheese sauces.

I have a cyst that seems to or may have shrunken a little, gotten a little flatter and softer since I started taking sodium citrate on April 7th, 8 weeks ago as of today, June 3rd. It's hard to tell thus far. I will keep this post updated on any more definitive progress. I buy food grade sodium citrate powder online in a one pound bag. Hopefully my theory will prove correct that sodium citrate can melt cysts or cancer tumors like it melts various cultures of cheese, and that cancers are cheeses of various cultures growing in the body.

Dear Patricia,

Sounds like you are really doing your homework and will be well prepared for your next flight.

Cayenne pepper is amazing for the blood. I would put that one at the top of the list. But it wouldn't hurt to take all three. They are all foods and all good for many things. You might just add one per week to your diet so you will be able to notice any adverse reaction you might have to one of them. I don't mean to imply that any of these remedies are dangerous, but not everything agrees with everyone.

I trust all will go well for you.

Coumadin may be "standard" treatment but Coumadin will damage ones health over long term. The best thing to use for blood clots are fibrolytic enzymes such as nattokinase. Unlike Coumadin which has side effects and can damage ones health especially over the long term, nattokinase is completely natural to the body. To transition off coumadin, it takes around 3 days before starting nattokinase.

At this point just finish the 6 month course and hope there are no side effects. one may need to take a diuretic for water gain.

Next time say NO to coumadin and take fibrolytic enzyme to remove clots.

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.
