BTD Forums  /  Eat Right 4 Your Type  /  Embolisms

Hello -
I was wondering if anyone has had any success in treating embolisms (pulmonary in particular) with the BTD or GTD?  

I have a family member who has A+ blood and has just been diagnosed with having an embolism in her leg, and they recently found that one has traveled into her lungs creating a pulmonary embolism.

It's my understanding that individuals with type A blood often have issues with blood clots and increased blood pressure.  I know that Dr. D has a few books out, but I don't think any target embolisms in particular.  Will these particular diets be beneficial to her?  And if so, which would you all recommend?  

Thank you.

The cardiovascular book would be the one to read, although I would suggest you read them all as they are all linked and are all fantastic books. even after a third read I find stuff that I missed, that is relevant.

It would be a good idea though to see a practitioner either in person or perhaps a Skype type meeting if that is easier.

Exercise and diet will help. not staying in bed for long periods of time will also help. stepping up their beneficial foods will help.

Thanks for the suggestions Amazon I.

Policychecker - I too thought of the cardiovascular book.  I wondered if she should stick to the diet prescribed in there or if she should do a SWAMI?

Andrea AWsec - she is not hospitalized but the doctor did prescribe a blood thinner.  I will ask her what it is called.  I by no means would suggest her to not take the meds, I just thought that supplementing the meds with an individualized diet plan might help her recovery quicken.

I know that fish oil is a good natural blood thinner BUT I don't know if she should take fish oil supplements if she is already on a prescription blood thinner.  I think she should ask her doctor on that one, as pulmonary embolisms are nothing to mess around with.  I think that any supplement she might want to take, she should check with her treatment team about.

Andrea AWsec - Yes, the doctor put her on coumadin and another injectible prescription called lovenox.  

I am having her do a secretor test and will create a SWAMI nutritional program for her.  She's a little concerned because the doctor is giving her all sorts of nutritional advice.  He told her no dark leafy greens because apparently they contain blood coagulating agents.  

Does anyone know if SWAMI takes this type of medical information into consideration when figuring out a program?  I do not recall it asking about embolisms or anything similar.

is this swami express you are asking about, or swami gt run by a trained practitioner?

Lola - It's the SWAMIXpress.  Does the SWAMI gt ask for this information?

it does not ask for that.

I would get a swami pro done they have many more options for medication etc.

Would the consensus be doing a SWAMI pro over the cardiovascular diet for Type A's suggested in the cardiovascular book?  Or vice versa?
