I am looking for some suggestions on supplements or herbs that have a blood thinning effect.

Last October i had a blood clot in my leg. It was classified as a superficial clot since it was in the greater saphenous vein (the one that runs up the inside of your leg from the ankle to the the groin - its a surface vein) however it was 4 mm from where it connects to the iliac vein (a deep vein). I had absolutely no "reason" to have the clot. I've been eating right for several years, i drink lots of water, i get regular exercise, i am not on hormones, i wasn't travelling, etc. The doctor that i saw basically shrugged his shoulders and said that it happens sometimes. I asked about getting tests for a genetic blood clotting disorder since this was the second time this happened to me for "no reason" and since these both happened with me being under the age of 45 (43 and 36) it seemed odd to me. The doctor said that he did not see a reason for the testing... even though i am adopted and not all of my medical history is known.

Anyways, long story short... i went and had my 23 & me done to see if anything turned up. And sure enough, i have Factor V leiden (FVL) - i am heterozygous for it (1 allele) and also heterogygous for SERPIC1 (antithrombin).

I know that my non secretor status (homzygous ++ for FUT2) as well as my Lewis status (LDN) are also contributing factors here.

I have a really difficult time with meds in general and i actually cannot take plavix (i apparently am genetically unable to process it hahaha).  I am just wondering if anyone has any suggestions for supplements that have blood thinning properties.

I have heard of Nattokinase but it's made from fermented soybeans and as a B, i don't think it is something that i should be taking.

thanks in advance for your input.

My best guess is that following the blood building or Detox protocols may be the best for you to follow...  

I haven't searched through the blogs, etc., to see if there are other recommendations there...

okay - i have a question regarding the blood building protocol... when i read it in my encyclopedia, it seemed like it was for the opposite problem to what i have (ie for those who do not clot enough) where my problem is i clot too easily.

Several years ago i had to stop donating blood because it took too long / too slow. Although, my iron has always been dodgey... its always been right on the cusp of "okay" and i had been turned away a few times for donating as my ferritin wasn't high enough to donate that day.

Or am I reading it wrong?

Encyclopedia (pg. 155) in Blood Clotting Disorders - which seems to indicate a lack of clotting, indicates Blood Building Protocol, Cardiovascular Protocol and Immune-Enhancing Protocol for type B...

The stroke therapies indicate Anti-stress Protocol, Cardiovascular Protocol, and Metabolic Enhancement Protocol - although in the text it also indicates that the bigger problem for Type B is a lack of clotting to cause the stroke...

Cardiovascular disease section just shows Cardiovascular and Metabolic Enhancement protocols...

It looks like the most beneficial for a Type B with thick blood may be to follow the Cardiovascular Protocol and Metabolic Enhancement Protocol.

Pineapple is supposed to be good, at least the bromelain in it is.
