Home Remedies for Blood Clots
Canola Oil, Mustard Oil: These oils contain low levels of fat and should be used for cooking purposes, rather than high-fat oils.
Bread, Beans, Cereals, Sprouts, Brussels sprouts and Asparagus: These are all rich in folate content which has certain metabolic and enzymatic properties which make brittle arteries more flexible.
Broccoli: Broccoli is rich in fiber and is considered good for patients suffering from vascular disorders.
Celery: Celery contains an active compound that acts to lower stress hormones, which thins or narrows blood vessels. This way, blood vessels maintain their optimum diameter.
Cayenne (capsicum) and Pepper: Both of these help in preventing platelets from sticking together.
Vitamin C: This powerful vitamin is an antioxidant and actively works to maintain proper vascular health.
Banana, Apricot, Spinach, Orange Juice: All of these keeps the vascular system active and maintain proper blood pressure.
Skim Milk: Skim milk contains the calcium needed for platelet functioning but it must be of the skimmed variety as fat deposits on the walls of blood vessels, thereby thinning their diameter.
Avoid Obesity: Obesity is caused due to a high-fat diet, which results in the deposition of fat on the walls of blood vessels. This leads to a reduction in the diameter, increasing the chances of clots and associated health concerns like atherosclerosis, heart attacks, and strokes.
Walking: Physical activity of all kinds is important, because constant activity keeps blood flowing through various body parts, keeping the vessels clear.
Bilberry, Turmeric, Ginger: Bilberry, turmeric and ginger reduce the phenomenon of platelets becoming clumped, which leads to blood clot formation.
