Do you have to use Blackstrap Molasses or can it be Molasses. I can get local made molasses and would like to go that route if I don't need blackstrap molasses. Also do you mix it w/ anything or take it straight?

I would also like to know if it can be hot tap water or even cold water.

Hi Roland--I believe so. I started using hot tap the 8-18-14 post above by Mama to Many. KT

Dear Rolland,

I put cayenne into cold juice when I take it and it works well. So, cold water should be fine, as long as you aren't straining back out the cayenne.

I recently developed a blood clot after superficial vein surgery. I had not had blood clots prior. After two weeks of Lovenox shots, the MRI showed the blood clot had gone. I do not have DVT. However, I will be flying to Europe (7.1/2 to 8 hour trip late August/early September). I told my doctor and he has given me two shots of Lovenox to take, one prior to flight and one after. Therefore, this must indicate there is a risk.

In the meantime, I am anxious that I not have another blood clot. The natural remedies posted here for apple cider vinegar, cayenne pepper, and molasses should great. Do I select one of these, or take all three daily? I don't want to overdo it. Which one is the best? I still intend to take the two shots of Lovenox as prescribed later on. Also, does anyone have an idea of the risk involved in flying after vein surgery. Is it better to wait at least 3 months or later. I had the surgery on June 25 and plan to fly early Sept. I could leave it until a bit later but would that make any difference. I do have support hose to wear and know that I do need to walk around about every hour and do ankle exercises.

I think you are taking all the right precautions. Also, on your flight, get up and move around as much as you can and stay fidgety in your seat by stretching a lot. Have fun in Europe!

When flying, take nattokinase and serrapeptise without food. This is the best clot prevention.

A quick google search on vena cava filters shows issues with complications and questionable benefit, especially long term. Can you discuss the possibility of removing it with his doctor? Definitely talk to the doctor about your concerns with the swelling.

Dear Prioris - re your advice to retire OTC (over the counter) Wisdom and to take Prescription meds unless they can't get access:

My response: With medical appointments being MONTHS and MONTHS out, and if covered, maybe they did what they needed/could afford to do &/or didn't have to wait & maybe die for, and lived long enough to maybe or maybe no longer need to get your 'approved' Prescription enzymes.

EC: ???

Prioris was mentioning home remedies like blackstrap molasses, not OTC, and specifically helpful enzyme supplements that are thought to help dissolve blood clots. These enzymes are NOT prescription, they can be bought in any health food store or online.

I just got out of the hospital having had a TAVR procedure (replacement of my aortic valve) The doctor has prescribed "Plavix" with a baby aspirin" for six whole months and the asperin for life! Would Natokkinase work in place of these two? Plavix is a blood thinner as well as the baby asperin.

Second, I also have been taking vit D-3, a quality fish oil capsule (this for 3 x perday) I eat a lot of Kale in my organic salad, take garlic capsules (one) at night before bed. I also take magnesium supplements daily. Is all this too much for blood thinning. If I take the Nattokinase would that be sufficient? However, I have been taking the vit D-3 vit a, vit c, querceitn and zinc for my Covid prevention.

Must I stop the vitamin D? I just want to be safe in what I am doing. Can you or someone advise me?

Please ask the doctor if your husband is a candidate for a trapeze vena cava filter to keep any and all future blood clots from traveling from the inferior vena cava, through the right side of the heart, and then possibly into one of the lungs. Please make sure you specify a trapeze filter, not one of the others which have been strenuously recalled over the last couple of years. This procedure at the hospital usually takes less than twenty minutes and is a good safety net for moving blood clots in the venous system from the legs to the inferior vena cava in the chest before interring the right side of the heart.

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?

Help! My husband has a blood clot in his jugular vein at the base of his brain. he has been suffering with severe headaches for 4 months now. He was on Heperin and now warfarin to 'thin" his blood but the clot is not dissolving. The medical doctors are not offering any solution except more pain medication! He is tired of living like this. We are very afraid of any invasive procedure that might force the clot elsewhere.

Would Cayenne or garlic help this clot dissolve?

Thanks so much!

Hi Bibi - Dud from WV mentioned that taking serrapeptase may help dissolve clots (along with other suggestions in his September 23/11 post).

Here's an excerpt about this enzyme: Serrapeptase is a proteolytic enzyme - it breaks down protein. This means it is able to act on pathogenic (disease causing) tissue, such as blood clots, cysts, arterial plaque and the substances produced naturally by the body as part of its inflammatory response.

Do an Internet search (blood clots serrapeptase) for more information. It sounds promising. Good luck to you and your husband! Bess

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.

I would be interested in knowing how cayenne is used. Is it the pepper itself or is it used in the powder form that you can buy as a spice? Is it mixed with food or water. Is there a certain way to use it to address one ailment over another? I have pain on the inside of my leg that seems to be slowly moving upward that I suspect is a clot. I don't know but it has been moving up my left leg for a very long time and is now in the thigh area. I work from home and sit most of the time with my right ankle crossed over my left leg at the knee. Thank you!

Blackstrap Molasses

Blackstrap Molassas is very high in iron. It is the iron that is very good for you. In fact, as to my knowledge, molassas has the highest content of iron in any food. It is in liquid form and therefore gets absorbed well into your system. Taking iron pills can be harmful since only a small amount of it gets absorbed into your system and therefore most of it is flushed out thru your intestinal tract where it can create problems. I have heard that fibroids tend to collect iron and can make you anemic. I was told this by a friend that had large fibroids and this was what she was told by her docter. The doctors gave her iron pills and since they did not work, she got so anemic they did a total hysterectomy on her to get rid of the fibroids. She told me all of this after the surgery. I wish she would have let me know before she had the surgery. I am not quite sure how the iron helps since the doctor said that the fibroids collect the iron. Although, I had a large fibroid several years ago that caused to stay bloated for months. I started taking molassas every day for several weeks and all of the symptoms dissappeared and never came back. I do not know if the fibroid still exists at all since I did not have another sonagram done to check. The only thing I would suggest is not to take more than a tablespoon a day, because the molasses contains a lot of iron and too much iron a day will cause consipation if your body is getting more than it can use at one time.
