Blood Clot Prevention
You may not know it, but if you are over 50 the greatest threat to your continued existence is the formation of abnormal blood clots in your arteries and veins.
The most common form of heart attack occurs when a blood clot (thrombus) blocks a coronary artery that feeds your heart muscle. The leading cause of stroke occurs when a blood clot occludes, or obstructs, an artery supplying blood to your brain. Formation of vascular blood clots is also a leading cause of death in cancer patients because cancer cells create conditions that favor clotting.
While normal blood clots are a natural part of healing, abnormal arterial and venous blood clots are a significant cause of death and disability.1
The good news is that health-conscious individuals already take a wide variety of nutrients through their diet and supplement program that drastically reduce their risk of developing thrombosis, which is the medical term for an abnormal vascular blood clot.
Certain individuals, however, have underlying medical conditions that predispose them to developing thrombotic events. These include atherosclerosis, mechanical heart valves, atrial fibrillation, venostasis, blood clotting disorders, and cancer. These individuals must take special precautions to protect against thrombosis.
Conventional medicine offers drugs proven to reduce thrombotic risk via specific mechanisms. These drugs fail, however, to neutralize the broad array of mechanisms that can induce a thrombotic event, which is why a comprehensive thrombosis prevention program is so critically important to those at high risk.
This protocol first discusses some technical details about thrombosis, the conventional drugs that doctors prescribe, and important blood tests to consider. It then reveals little-known methods of inhibiting a multitude of thrombotic risk factors that mainstream doctors overlook.
Life Extension believes patients succumb to thrombotic events, even when taking powerful anti-coagulation drugs such as warfarin, because their doctors failed to suppress the many other underlying risk factors that cause abnormal clots to form inside a blood vessel.
