Got Blood Clots? What Can You Do?
As many of my friends know, I had a life-threatening condition a few years back that nearly cost me my life. It all started from a reaction to being given too many infertility drugs that sent me in and out of the hospital several times with many life-threatening complications, including numerous blood transfusions and severe weakness. It all culminated when I was air-lifted by helicopter to the 7th hospital after the previous hospitals could not find out what was wrong with me…. as hospitals did not yet understand Ovarian Hyperstimulation Syndrome. The infertility drugs, that I thought were going to be my savior ~ helping me fulfill my life-long dream of becoming a mother ~ instead caused blood clots throughout my body… not one or two, many! I had a long blood clot in my legs, over both arms and 4-5 passed over my lungs and my heart! The emergency room doctor told me that it was so severe that it was unlikely I would make it through the night.
The doctors did not know that my mother is holistic health pioneer, Donna Eden and she was at my side with all her knowledge and skills of Energy Medicine. Thoughts of the upcoming birth of my new nephew, Tiernan, the love and support of my family and friends, prayers from the Energy Medicine community throughout the world, and so much unfinished life business motivated my return to health. I was in Intensive Care for over two weeks in the most weakened stage of my life.
“The doctor has got to be wrong,” I thought to myself… “This can’t be happening, I feel so calm and relaxed. I’m not dying! I feel too good.” I was also thinking, “If this is death, it is so peaceful then maybe it would be okay to let go.”
To say that the doctor’s statement didn’t freak out my Mother and my boyfriend Jeff was a severe understatement. I felt my Mother and Jeff’s emotions and I couldn’t allow myself to leave them in grief. I made it through the night. And the next day and the next! And yes, I believe a huge part was due to the miracle of Energy Medicine and my Mother’s tireless work with me every step of the way. I feel like a miracle! I cannot believe that I had so many blood clots and I made it out alive. My Mother recalls that the doctor said, “She didn’t dodge rocks, she dodged boulders!”
For those readers who are familiar with my mother, Donna Eden’s teachings in Energy Medicine… I am sure you would want to know what helped me in recovery. The Energy Medicine work that helped dissipate the blood clots was simply making figure eights over the blood clots with her hands. My mother would also put her fingers on the clots, with intention, and it felt like they would dissolve under her hands. Several scary moments, I felt blood clots moving through my lungs and even my heart, which made it hard to breathe. Chakra Circles didn’t work so much and actually made my energy feel worse… it was those magical figure eights that worked the best! She also had to strengthen the acupressure points of Triple Warmer and sedate Spleen and then strengthen it afterwards (Spleen deals with blood), because I was in a life and death situation, constantly. Triple Warmer became my friend during this time.
Blood clots form when strands of protein called fibrin accumulate in a blood vessel blocking blood flow to muscle tissue. In the heart, if blood flow is blocked, the oxygen supply to that tissue is cut off and can result in angina and heart attacks. Clots in chambers of the heart can mobilize to the brain blocking blood and oxygen from reaching it, and can result in senility and/or stroke.
Of course the doctors put me immediately on Heparin and then later on Coumadin. Our protests fell on deaf ears, and they would not release me unless we agreed to Coumadin. These medications are routine when someone has a blood clot of any kind. If anyone has a parent who is on Coumadin, you know that you have to be very careful. Anytime you bump into things, even softly, can cause deep dark bruises. The skin becomes so thin that you can see through it to the veins and blood beneath. My father and grandmother were both on Coumadin and if I knew then what I know now, I would’ve taken them off right away. They hated it! When you are on Coumadin, you have to go in and monitor your blood levels every week. That means taking blood. Because I was in the hospital for a long time, my veins were weak from blood tests every few hours. Prior to all this, I felt uncomfortable getting blood tests; it always made me feel violated, especially when it took so many tries to get a vein that would work… that was torture. The torture had now become part of my life. My veins became so bad that the nurses had to go through my wrists, feet, and worst of all, my neck. My veins will never come back, and I still have a bad scar on my neck from a horrible Big Bear doctor, who even the nurses called, “Jack the Ripper”.
Researching this awful drug called Coumadin, we found that it originated as a rat poison made to bleed out rats to death. The one thing about Coumadin is that it only keeps the existing blood clots at bay and helps to not create more. It will never dissolve the blood clots that you have. They said I would have to be on Coumadin for the rest of my life and I was only in my early 40’s at the time. Of course, we knew that we weren’t going to go this route as we’d found out through tests that I wasn’t predisposed to blood clots. But this mattered not at all to the doctors as this was the best they could offer. We, on the other hand, had plans of working with my energy and dissolving these clots permanently. Also the doctors instruct anyone on Coumadin to NOT eat dark green vegetables like spinach, kale, seaweed and supplements like Spirulina, because they could thin the blood even more. Being instructed NOT to eat the healthiest vegetables and natural protein on Earth… does that make any sense? Why are millions of people buying into this?
In the meantime while pondering these thoughts, I loved the amazing prayers that came to me from all over the world and feeling so supported from so many. I know this outpouring of love and support helped me stay alive and heal. Instinctively, I also felt my loved ones, my ancestors on the other side too… I felt like I had the help of the whole world on my side. One of our sweet Energy Medicine graduates, Dustin Mackey, told us about Nattokinase, a natural alternative that actually rids the body of the awful blood clots. I knew I would immediately be getting off the horrible Coumadin medication.
American medicine does not acknowledge anything that will actually dissolve blood clots, so millions of people in America and throughout the world are destined to severe difficulty from the horrible side-effects of being on Coumadin day in and day out. Doctors prescribe it to thin the blood because that is all they have been taught to do in the treatment of blood clots. When we did our own research about Nattokinase, a natural supplement found in most health food stores (for under $20 a bottle), we found much evidence about its blood clot dissolving properties. It didn’t matter how much evidence we found and printed for the doctors; they ignored it. They even told my Mother that “you are putting your daughter’s life in danger.”
So, against my doctor’s orders, I took my life in my own hands and very carefully monitored my medicines, cutting back on the Coumadin and adding Nattokinase. I also had to watch my intake of green vegetables, because that would thin my blood even more. Slowly, I kept taking Nattokinase, while getting off of Coumadin, “Energy Testing” the whole way, until I was 100% on Nattokinase alone.
In three weeks, it felt like the blood clots were gone though my doctor refused to order a test to check. Small blot clots rarely go away and my body had been so riddled with them he said there was no sense in checking for at least a year. My intuition was strong, so I and my family begged him until he finally gave in. He was shocked when the results came back a few days later; my extensive blood clots, more than most doctors had ever seen in one patient, were GONE!
A couple of years later, I was back in the hospital with another bleeding disorder, caused from the drugs staying inside my system for so long. Again, I had blood clots and another 3 weeks in the hospital; the doctors put me on Coumadin again. I and my mother knew what we had to do and once again, the doctors told us that we were threatening my life, except they also had to take me off of Coumadin themselves. Coumadin gave me another difficulty that they couldn’t fix. It was making my blood so thin, that my menstrual cycle hadn’t stopped for 100+ days. Many blood transfusions later, I, once again, “energy tested” the Nattokinase and 3 weeks later the blood clots disappeared.
Nattokinase has been used for over a thousand years in the Orient. There is a great story of origin in which the ancient Oriental warriors would feed soybeans to horses for strength. One day, they were feeding the horses and they were attacked, so they put the soybeans in bags and fled to their next destination. They opened up the bag a couple days later, to feed the horses, and it was fermented. Being the only food, they fed it to the horses and realized that the fermented soybeans proved to be even better for the horse’s circulation and strength. Later, the Japanese discovered that it was great for dissolving blood clots. Every morning, people in the orient, eat Natto for breakfast for heart health, cardiovascular disease and to lower blood pressure.
Nattokinase is a natural enzyme. Remember, Coumadin will only keep the blood clots at bay but will not break up blood clots already in the system. It prevents coagulation of blood and it dissolves existing thrombus.
According to Dr. Martin Milner, from the Center for Natural Medicine in Portland, Oregon, “What makes Nattokinase a particularly potent treatment is that it enhances the body’s natural ability to fight blood clots in several different ways; because it so closely resembles plasmin, it dissolves fibrin directly. In addition, it enhances the body’s production of both plasmin and other clot-dissolving agents, including Nattokinase (endogenous). In some ways, Milner says, Nattokinase is actually superior to conventional clot-dissolving drugs. T-PAs (tissue plasminogen activators) like the drug Urokinase, are only effective when taken intravenously and often fail simply because the patient’s arteries have hardened beyond the point where they can be treated by any other clot-dissolving agent. Nattokinase, however, can help prevent that hardening with an oral dose of as little as 100 mg a day.”
Dr. Milner continues, “In all my years of research as a professor of cardiovascular and pulmonary medicine, Natto and nattokinase represents the most exciting new development in the prevention and treatment of cardiovascular related diseases. We have finally found a potent natural agent that can thin and dissolve clots effectively, with relative safety and without side effects.”
These are some of the other problems that Nattokinase helps cure: Stroke, Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT), Angina , Heart disease, Atherosclerosis, Varicose veins, Hemorrhoids, Body pain, Poor circulation, Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD), Fibromyalgia, Muscle spasms, Chronic fatigue, Endometriosis, Hypertension, Uterine fibroids, Beriberi, Infertility and Cancer.
The world needs to know about Nattokinase! Spread the word, especially to the professional health care doctors, who can help us pave the way for Nattokinase to be studied and accepted by the American Medical Association. I tell everyone! Every single time someone takes Nattokinase, it seems to be about 3-4 weeks and the blood clots are gone! I have also known a few people that have dissolved their blood clots within a week on Nattokinase and sedating, then strengthening their Spleen meridian. You can get Nattokinase at any health food store. I keep Nattokinase in my emergency kit, and take it regularly when I travel by air.
