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.
My doctor prescribed 1 mg of Folic Acid...I have a genetic mutation that makes me more susceptible to blood clots. This helps keep my homocysteine levels balanced which will help prevent blood clots.
I have a 76 year old relative who developed a blood clot in her leg after she took a long airplane flight (13 hours) and within 3 months off cartilage repair surgery on her knee. She was treated w/shots and then given coumadin. She has her blood tested every 2 weeks. Three months later, the clot is no longer in her leg, yet she has been told that she must continue on the coumadin therapy until she has been on it for 6 months to a year. The rationale is that the clot could have broken up leaving smaller clots that are still traveling in her body. The longer therapy apparently guarantees the break down of the smaller clots. I don't trust western medicine so I'm checking in here to see if anyone has an opinion.

I have a friend, who had knee replacement surgery.
Right now the knee is getting better, but she has a severe complication. She developed blood clots and when her knee was accidentally dropped it pushed one of the blood clots to her left shoulder.
The doctors have told her that if the blood clot moves again, it will go directly to her brain and she would die instantly.
She is being medicated up the wazoo. One of the medications, I know she is taking is warfarin. The doctors say that it is a blood thinner, but will not affect the already formed clots.
Would Baking Soda and Lime/Lemon treatment affect the medicine she is taking?
I understand that Grapefruit can be a Deadly Poison when mixed with some drugs.
My 2nd question is, how long should she take the Baking Soda & Lime/Lemon treatment to make this deadly blood clot go away?

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.
Grape Seed Extract (50:1) 400 mg, 1-2x day helps a lot with phlebitis and vein issues.
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.
In reply to Replied by Mary (Usa) 12/09/2014 who wrote: "Be very careful with vit d. Look up USDA vit d as it is a mouse poison."
No, vitamin D is not a mouse poison, warfarin is a mouse poison, also known as coumadin, often used in rehab hospitals, warfarin is known to interfere with vitamin K1 function, Vitamin k1 is the greens vitamin needed for the proper functioning of platelets and clotting.
Vitamin K1 is converted to vitamin K2 in grass fed milk and meat and eggs, and is valuable for tooth repair and development and skeletal development- and making sure vitamin D works as a team with calcium (along with A, and magnesium) as it guides calcium to bones and ensures proper functions as it pulls it out of soft tissues like arteries and nerves and improper places.
K2 prevents heart disease. K2 could safely be used instead of warfarin in knee and hip replacement patients.
Thanks Ted for your superb remedy for Varicose veins & Deep vein thrombosis,i tried 1/2 lemon &baking soda, thrice a day, it immediately relieves the pain---i'd be grateful if you could let me know how many days i have to continue this treatment as i have a few bulging blue veins from the knee to toes, i also have corns on my left foot--but the honey remedy has not helped !!, my diabetes varies from 125--200, controlled by tablets, diet etc,while ACV is a miracle, it brings my weight down, while my docs want me to put on atleast another 2 kgs. Ted please reply ASAP, God bless you and this site.--rekha

Interesting that Amazon recently decided to stop selling NAC (N-acetyl cysteine) supplements (Link on the story below). I was researching potential supplements to break up blood clots in hopes to remedy femoral and tibial occlusions and came across an article stating that diacetyl-L-cystine, the disulphide dimer of N-acetyl cysteine (NAC), is a potential new treatment modality for atherosclerosis; however, is still being studied. (I left two links to these articles below.)
So, naturally, I started looking at NAC supplements and could not find anything on Amazon. Interesting that NAC is also being prescribed by holistic doctors for COVID 19 patients yet the FDA wants it pulled off shelves??? Anyway - Piping Rock has it - but I hate the fillers they use. Does anyone know where to get a good quality NAC supplement online? More importantly - can anyone tell me how to convert NAC to DiNAC to blast occlusions in arteries? I am trying to avoid a serious and complicated bypass surgery.

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:
My partner has deep vein thrombosis (DVT) in both legs and restricted flow in the aorta below the the renal artery. Doctors want to do an invasive procedure of graphing in a new aorta with branches to be attache in both legs below the blockages. We are not wanting this proceedure. The left leg DVT has been there for more than 10 years with 2 pulmonary embolisms and since then only an occasional flair up. 2 years ago due to a physical injury a blood clot formed in the right leg. Emergency surgery was on the table, but the thrombosis specialist stopped in as it was discovered there was a clot just outside the vena cava and not being stabilized it could move during surgery. He has been on daily self-injections of Fragmin for the last 40 months. Couple of questions. Should he stop the Fragmin if he starts any of the remedies I have read... Cayenne & Garlic... Nattokinase... Honey Cayenne Vinegar... Lemon & Baking soda water. Also, has anyone heard of a STRONG tea of Sassafras - 1time - should be dark orange in colour strong.... And whether it has any effect. Supposed to clean out the pipes of plaque and clots. Haven't tried it yet. Told to stop Fragmin for that day because too much thiner. That is why I am asking if Fragmin should be stopped when trying these others.

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.
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.
