Blood Hypercoagulation, More Common Than You Think! Real Causes and Solutions for Prevention and Cure.

 

Blood clotting is an essential mechanism for stopping bleeding and healing cuts or wounds. However, blood hypercoagulation causes the development of blood clots inside your veins, which can become a serious or life-threatening problem. Fortunately, there are natural strategies to fix this problem.

Your blood is not as thin as water and not as thick as ketchup either, but it falls somewhere in the middle. If blood flow is slower, it allows more molecular interactions between red blood cells and plasma proteins. This can cause the red blood cells to stick together, increasing the viscosity of the blood.

The main symptoms of high viscosity may depend on the location of the potential blood clot.

Symptoms of blood clots in the legs or arms may include: pain, reddish skin, heat to the touch. Symptoms of a blood clot in the abdomen may include: bloating, pain. Symptoms of a blood clot in the heart (heart attack) may include: shortness of breath, chest pain, fatigue, dizziness. Symptoms of a blood clot in the brain (stroke) may include: severe headache, difficulty seeing and speaking, loss of balance, lack of coordination.

It is known that some of the risk factors for blood clotting are: age over 50, a family history of blood clots, long trips, sedentary lifestyle, obesity, pregnancy, birth control pills. But what are the functional causes of blood clotting? Some of these are:

Insulin Resistance.

The release of insulin needed to counteract the high blood glucose level depletes the cells to the point where they begin to reject insulin. So the cells become insulin resistant. When they become resistant to insulin and glucose fails to enter the cell, it circulates and accumulates in the system, causing damage to the arteries and brain.

It can also contribute to various health problems, including blood clotting. Studies have shown that patients with insulin resistance and hyperglycaemia have a higher risk of thrombotic events.

High Iron Level.

Iron is essential for energy, concentration, immune health, digestion and other aspects of your health. However, too much iron can become a problem. This excess iron gets stored in your organs, including the pancreas, liver and heart. It can lead to many health problems, including diabetes, liver disease, and heart disease. High iron levels may increase your risk of blood clotting, venous thrombosis and stroke.

Chronic Infections.

Chronic infections, including viral, bacterial, and fungal infections, can affect your entire body and also contribute to the hypercoagulation of your blood. It is known in the integrative medical world that infections such as H pylori, covid-19, Lyme and even oral infections can increase blood hypercoagulation and the risk of thrombosis.

Vitamin D and vitamin B deficiency can cause multiple health problems, including hypercoagulation of the blood, and may increase the risk of thrombotic episodes.

Heavy Metal Toxicity.

Excessive accumulations of mercury, lead and cadmium all contribute to clotting problems.

Intestinal Dysbiosis.

Intestinal dysbiosis, where pathogenic bacteria outweigh the beneficial ones, dramatically increases the risk of many health problems, predisposes to hypercoagulation problems and thrombotic episodes.

High stress, lack of sleep and sedentary lifestyle of course, contribute to this problem.

Solutions To Solve Hypercoagulation.

First of all, with the help of a functional and integrative interpretation of your blood chemistry, it can be determined whether you are at risk or not. Thus, the following should be analyzed: iron status, glycemic status (insulin, glucose, LDH and glycated hemoglobin), blood clotting markers (such as fibrinogen, a protein produced by the liver whose optimal level should be between 150-285 mg / dL.), platelet levels (associated with increased inflammation and thrombocytosis) and other inflammatory markers such as homocysteine ​​and C-reactive protein.

Among the natural strategies for supporting and solving coagulation problems, I recommend:

  • a diet that suits your metabolic type, and that is also anti-inflammatory, without processed food and excess sugars
  • early detection of iron, glycemic imbalances and inflammation in the body
  • optimizing vitamin D levels
  • consumption of proteolytic enzymes: serrapeptase, nattokinase
  • anti-inflammatory and anticoagulant nutrients: curcumin, resveratrol, quercetin, ginger, garlic, cayenne, gingko biloba, grape seed extrac

I am confident that you’ll find this information  useful and that it will help you detect any hypercoagulation problems in advance, in order to prevent serious diseases!
