10 Best Natural Blood Thinners - Complete Food List
 
04:53
Blood thinner medicines prevent blood clots from forming. Also, they keep existing blood clots from getting larger. Blood clots can stop the flow of blood to the lungs, heart, or brain which may lead to stroke or a heart attack. However, blood thinner medicines have some side effects such as - bleeding gums, nosebleeds, vaginal bleeding, heavier than normal menstrual, coughing up blood, brown or pink urine, vomiting blood, and black or red stools. Also, because these medicines work by interfering with the blood's ability to coagulate, you may also have trouble stopping the blood flow if you sustain even a minor injury. Luckily, there are a few natural blood thinners you can have in your diet to prevent blood clots, such as: #1 Turmeric - it comes from the Curcuma longa plant, that grows in India and other Southeast Asian countries. Curcumin, the main component of turmeric, has a variety of health benefits, including being a natural blood thinner. Moreover, turmeric is a natural anti-inflammatory, a natural immune modulator, and is increasingly being acknowledged as a potent cancer preventive and cancer fighter. #2 Bromelain, an enzyme found in pineapple, is a natural blood thinner, as it can help lower the excessive adhesiveness of blood platelets. In addition, it promotes a healthy complexion and hair, overall lower weight, and increased energy. #3 Garlic - it has a mild inhibitory effect on platelet aggregation (one of the first stages in blood clot formation), according to a 2001 study issued in "JAMA Internal Medicine." Some individuals also use garlic for the prevention of prostate cancer, lung cancer, stomach cancer, breast cancer, colon cancer, and rectal cancer. #4 Ginger - it is packed with salicylates, natural chemicals which help protect plants from disease and insect damage. Salicylates are also a major ingredient in aspirin and other pain-relieving medications. Foods containing salicylates are effective blood thinners since salicylates block vitamin K in the human body, hence, thinning the blood. #5 Ginkgo biloba, also known as gingko or ginkgo, has a compound called - Ginkgolide B which is known to reduce coagulation and increase blood flow to the brain and enhance memory. #6 Foods High In Vitamin E - vitamin E helps to prevent blood platelets from sticking together and causing clots. Vitamin E rich foods include - mustard greens, broccoli, blackberries, Swiss chard, almonds, sunflower seeds, spinach, collard greens, avocados, kale, kiwi, red bell peppers, mangoes, papaya, olives, apples, mamey sapote, and cranberries. #7 Foods High In Omega-3 Fatty Acids - omega-3 also decreases platelet aggregation, therefore, it acts as a natural blood thinner and lowers the chance of the formation of blood clots. The best source of omega-3 fatty acids is flax seeds. Other sources include - chia seeds, pinto beans, kale, red kidney beans, navy beans, pistachios, macadamia nuts, soybeans, mung beans, rice bran, walnuts, sesame seeds, and pecans. #8 Cayenne Pepper - it is a fast-acting natural blood thinner which in large quantities has the effect of a clot buster. Moreover, cayenne pepper has been used for heart attack recovery and relief from angina. It also helps increase the amount of heat the body produces, making it burn more calories for a few hours after consumption. #9 Cinnamon - it contains coumarin, a chemical which acts as a strong anticoagulant. Coumarin also has been used as both a food additive and as an ingredient in perfume due to its aromatic and sweet odor. #10 Tomatoes - they contain carotenoids, like - lycopene and lutein - which can protect the eye against light-induced damage. Also, lycopene inhibits platelet aggregation, thus, reducing the chance of blood clots. Tomatoes are also a good source of vitamin C, that can help combat the formation of free radicals. Notes - Staying hydrated can help thin your blood and sustain your cardiovascular system to function properly. It is recommended to drink half your body weight in ounces of water daily. For example, if you weigh 200 lbs., drink 100 ounces of water per day, which is 3 - 4 quarts a day or one gallon. Moderate daily physical exercise will also help thin the blood. Thank you.

Warfarin: Information About Warfarin | Warfarin Interactions | Warfarin Side Effects (2018) Coumadin
 
04:21
Coumadin: Information About Coumadin For Patients | Coumadin Interactions | Coumadin Side Effects | Warfarin Patient Information | Warfarin Food Drug Interactions Hey guys! This weeks video is a short guide on warfarin also known as (coumadin). I see many patients on warfarin everyday and they are very knowledgable about their medicine, which is fantastic! But here's some information about warfarin, how it works, international normalised ratio (INR) and interactions which you may find useful. WHAT IS WARFARIN: Warfarin is the main oral anticoagulant used in the UK. An anticoagulant is a medicine that prevents blood clotting. Clotting (thickening) is a complex process involving a number of substances called clotting factors. Clotting factors are produced by the liver and help control bleeding. They work with cells that trigger the clotting process (platelets) to ensure blood clots effectively. Warfarin blocks one of the enzymes (proteins) that uses vitamin K to produce clotting factors. This disrupts the clotting process, making it take longer for the blood to clot. WHEN IS WARFARIN PRESCRIBED: Anticoagulant medicines, such as warfarin, are often prescribed for people who've had a condition caused by a blood clot or have an increased risk of developing harmful blood clots. TAKING WARFARIN: It's very important that you take warfarin exactly as directed. Don't increase your prescribed dose unless the doctor in charge of your care advises you to. Warfarin is taken once a day, usually in the evening. It's important to take your dose at the same time each day, before, during or after a meal. The aim of warfarin therapy is to decrease the blood's tendency to clot, but not stop it clotting completely. This means the dose of warfarin you're taking must be carefully monitored and, if necessary, adjusted. You'll have regular blood tests at your GP surgery or local anticoagulant clinic to make sure your dose is correct. The INR is a measure of how long it takes your blood to clot. When you start taking warfarin, you may be given a yellow booklet about anticoagulants, which explains your treatment. INTERACTIONS WITH WARFARIN Medicines Warfarin can interact with many other medicines, herbal medicines and supplements. Always ask your pharmacist, GP or staff at your anticoagulant clinic before you take them as they may interact with your warfarin. Also visit https://bnf.nice.org.uk/interaction/warfarin.html to check medication interactions. Foods and drink Foods containing large amounts of vitamin K include: • Green leafy vegetables, such as broccoli and spinach • Vegetable oils • Cereal grains • Small amounts of vitamin K can also be found in meat and dairy foods. When your first dose of warfarin is prescribed, it doesn't matter how much vitamin K you're eating because the dosage will be based on your current blood clotting levels. However, if you make significant changes to your diet, such as increasing your vitamin K intake or cutting out foods that contain vitamin K, it could interfere with how warfarin works. Consult the healthcare professional responsible for your care before making any significant changes to your diet while taking warfarin. Why you should avoid cranberry juice whilst taking warfarin is in the link lower down. Alcohol Getting drunk or binge drinking is dangerous while taking warfarin. It may increase the effect of the drug, increasing the risk of bleeding. See links below for more information.

6 Natural Blood Thinners
 
05:32
6 Natural Blood Thinners 1. Garlic Aside from giving your grandmother’s spaghetti sauce the “kick” it needs, garlic can also be good for your health. For one, it’s capable of limiting the collection of platelets, one of the primary steps in the formation of a blood clot. In small amounts, it’s unclear if garlic actually has the potential to prevent a devastating heart attack or strokee caused by a blood clot. However, in much larger amounts — such as when taken in supplement form — garlic may play a role in helping limit platelet aggregation. In short, if you’re in a position where blood clots may present a health problem, it’s a good idea to work more garlic into your diet. 2. Fish Oil There’s a good chance that, by now, you’ve heard about the health benefits of fish oil, and specifically that containing omega-3 fatty acids. These acids, which can be found in many types of fish, such as salmon, have been shown to help boost brain functionality and work against serious health problems, like strokee. But omega-3 fatty acids can also help thin the blood by preventing the formation of substances that encourage platelet formation. For people who need to be aware of the threat posed by blood clots, this makes fish oil a valuable contribution to their diet. Should you not be a fan of the taste of fish, omega-3 fatty acids can be found in supplement form. 3. Vitamin E When you were a kid, chances are your parents spent much of their time encouraging you to get all your vitamins, either through a health diet or physically taking a multivitamin. But they may not have explained that each type of vitamin is different. Take vitamin E for example. Available in a wide range of foods, including almonds, whole grains, sunflowers, eggs, seeds, and nuts, it’s been shown to help discourage the formation of blood clots and limit the chances of heart attack or strokee. Not a big fan of eggs, nuts, seeds or whole grains? Like most vitamins, vitamin E is widely available in supplement form. 4. Herbs with Coumarin There are literally hundreds of thousands of medications available to help prevent or treat serious health problems, like heart attack or strokee. But do you know where many of these medications come from? You may be surprised to hear that some, such as the medication warfarin — which is designed to help prevent blood clots — are made from easily acquired herbs. In fact, warfarin contains a compound known coumarin, which can be found in plants like angelica root, arnica flower, anise, chamomile, fenugreek, licorice root, parsley and red clover. That said, consuming these herbs may be a problem if you’re already on a blood-thinning medication like warfarin, so be sure to talk to your doctor before adding them to your diet. 5. Ginger You’ve probably heard that ginger can help reduce digestive inflammation and aid someone in overcoming mild upset stomach or indigestion, but did you know it can also help thin the blood? That’s because ginger contains salicylate, a type of acid that’s found in a few types of plants. In fact, salicylic acid is the technical name for aspirin, which can help reduce inflammation in the human body and may event assist in preventing a strokee. Ginger is readily available in root, spice or tea forms, so it’s easy to make it a regular part of your diet. Just be sure to check with your doctor to ensure it doesn’t present problems for any medications you may have been prescribed. 6. Avocado Avocado can help prevent blood clots in two ways: first, it contains omega-3 fatty acids, which have been shown to limit the formation of platelets and the development of blood clots. Second, like ginger it contains salicylate, which has also been shown to limit the chances of blood clots from forming. Avocadoes are easy to find at most grocery stores and make an excellent addition to just about any dish, from guacamole to sandwiches and salads. Just be sure to check with your family doctor to ensure it won’t interact negatively with any blood-thinning medications you may have been prescribed.

Thrombocytopenia, heparin-induced - Medical Meaning and Pronunciation
 
01:44
https://word2speech.com/medical/ Thrombocytopenia, heparin-induced Thrombocytopenia, heparin-induced: Low blood platelet count as a result of the medication heparin. HIT (heparin induced thrombocytopenia) is caused by the body forming antibodies to Heparin when it is bound to a blood protein called platelet factor 4 (PF4). When the antibody binds to the combination of heparin and PF4 it activates platelets which bind together and form small clots in the blood vessels and the platelet count falls. If major clots develop in the blood vessels and block them- called thrombosis, then the condition becomes even more serious and is called HITT- Heparin induced thrombocytopenia with thrombosis. Heparin is used to treat and prevent abnormal blood clotting. In the face of HIT or HITT other agents must be used for this purpose. Direct thrombin (a blood clotting factor) inhibitors may be used. An oral direct thrombin inhibitor is under investigation in HIT. It is unsafe to give the standard oral anticoagulant warfarin (Coumadin) to patients with HIT until their platelet counts are over 150,000 as it can lead to warfarin induced skin necrosis (death of skin).Heparin-induced thrombocytopenia can be mild or serious and fatal.

Warfarin Monitoring
 
02:28
CanadaQBank.com Warfarin Monitoring Instructional Tutorial Video Video Transcript: When a patient is on Warfarin, in order to monitor how thin their blood is, you will need to calculate their INR. INR stands for 'International Normalized Ratio'. The INR is calculated by dividing the patients Prothrombin Time (PT), measured in seconds, to the normal Prothrombin Time (PT). Then raising this ratio to the power of the ISI (International Sensitivity Index). As a formula it looks like this: INR = (PT patient/PT normal)ISI PT patient = patient's measured Prothrombin Time (in seconds) PT normal = laboratory value for normal patients (in seconds) ISI = International Sensitivity Index The patients INR should be between 2.0-3.0 if they are on Warfarin for treatment of Deep Venous Thrombosis, Pulmonary Embolism or Atrial Fibrillation for the duration of treatment, which can range anywhere from 3 months to lifetime. Patients with mechanical heart valves will require that their INR be in the range of 2.5-3.5.

NCLEX Question: Therapeutic INR

EmpoweRN.com This is a video nursing exam or NCLEX style question going over the medication coumadin. I have placed this video in the format that helped me pass nursing school with honors and the NCLEX examination on the first attempt in 75 questions. I know it may seem unreasonably long… but it is not. Take your time, follow the instructions and read each word slowly. Lets get started ;) Title: NCLEX Question: Therapeutic INR A client admitted with new onset of atrial fibrillation has been prescribed with warfarin (Coumadin) to help prevent thromboemboli. Which of the following International Normalized Ratio (INR) results indicates that the medication has reach the therapeutic level? A. 1 to 2.5 B. 2 to 4 C. 2.5 to 3.5 D. 2 to 3 Correct Answer: D – In a client with atrial fibrillation, warfarin reaches its therapeutic level when INR results is 2 to 3. A range higher for a client on warfarin increases the hemorrhage risk. For more questions & for the main video visit here: http://wp.me/s4CVjD-coumadin Warfarin aka Coumadin is the most used oral anticoagulant in the world and has been used for more than 50 years for therapy in prevention of thrombus formation and subsequent thromboembolic events. Anticoagulants are blood thinners which prevent formation of blood clots as well as prevent existent blood clots from increasing in size. Blood clots can hinder blood circulation and lead to serious medical conditions, like stroke, heart attack and pulmonary embolism. Thus warfarin is helpful in treating and preventing vein and artery blockage, stroke and heart attack. Mechanism of Action Warfarin slows down the formation of blood clots within 24 hours, but the complete effect takes place between 72 to 96 hours after taking the medication. Blood clot formation is a complicated process which requires certain compounds known as coagulating factors to be present. These coagulating factors are produced by the liver. In the presence of sufficient vitamin K. Warfarin acts by inhibiting the presence of vitamin K and this inhibits the formation of coagulating factors. Substances that require vitamin K for their formation are: the anticoagulant proteins C and S and factors II, VII, IX, and X. Therefore, medications like warfarin block coagulating factors and disturb the process of clot formation. Thus slowing down blood clot formation. In the case of blood clots that are already formed, warfarin stops the clot from getting bigger. It also prevents breakage of the clot which can be otherwise dangerous if it travels in the bloodstream and blocks blood vessels. Warfarin cannot destroy or dissolve a blood clot that is already there. But the blood clot itself may slowly dissolve with time. Nor can Warfarin reverse ischemic tissue damage either, but, may help avoid secondary thromboembolic complications that can be dangerous and even fatal.

6 Natural Blood Thinners
 
05:22
6 Natural Blood Thinners 1. Garlic Aside from giving your grandmother’s spaghetti sauce the “kick” it needs, garlic can also be good for your health. For one, it’s capable of limiting the collection of platelets, one of the primary steps in the formation of a blood clot. In small amounts, it’s unclear if garlic actually has the potential to prevent a devastating heart attack or stroke caused by a blood clot. However, in much larger amounts — such as when taken in supplement form — garlic may play a role in helping limit platelet aggregation. In short, if you’re in a position where blood clots may present a health problem, it’s a good idea to work more garlic into your diet. 2. Fish Oil There’s a good chance that, by now, you’ve heard about the health benefits of fish oil, and specifically that containing omega-3 fatty acids. These acids, which can be found in many types of fish, such as salmon, have been shown to help boost brain functionality and work against serious health problems, like stroke. But omega-3 fatty acids can also help thin the blood by preventing the formation of substances that encourage platelet formation. For people who need to be aware of the threat posed by blood clots, this makes fish oil a valuable contribution to their diet. Should you not be a fan of the taste of fish, omega-3 fatty acids can be found in supplement form. 3. Vitamin E When you were a kid, chances are your parents spent much of their time encouraging you to get all your vitamins, either through a health diet or physically taking a multivitamin. But they may not have explained that each type of vitamin is different. Take vitamin E for example. Available in a wide range of foods, including almonds, whole grains, sunflowers, eggs, seeds, and nuts, it’s been shown to help discourage the formation of blood clots and limit the chances of heart attack or stroke. Not a big fan of eggs, nuts, seeds or whole grains? Like most vitamins, vitamin E is widely available in supplement form. 4. Herbs with Coumarin There are literally hundreds of thousands of medications available to help prevent or treat serious health problems, like heart attack or stroke. But do you know where many of these medications come from? You may be surprised to hear that some, such as the medication warfarin — which is designed to help prevent blood clots — are made from easily acquired herbs. In fact, warfarin contains a compound known coumarin, which can be found in plants like angelica root, arnica flower, anise, chamomile, fenugreek, licorice root, parsley and red clover. That said, consuming these herbs may be a problem if you’re already on a blood-thinning medication like warfarin, so be sure to talk to your doctor before adding them to your diet. 5. Ginger You’ve probably heard that ginger can help reduce digestive inflammation and aid someone in overcoming mild upset stomach or indigestion, but did you know it can also help thin the blood? That’s because ginger contains salicylate, a type of acid that’s found in a few types of plants. In fact, salicylic acid is the technical name for aspirin, which can help reduce inflammation in the human body and may event assist in preventing a stroke. Ginger is readily available in root, spice or tea forms, so it’s easy to make it a regular part of your diet. Just be sure to check with your doctor to ensure it doesn’t present problems for any medications you may have been prescribed. 6. Avocado Avocado can help prevent blood clots in two ways: first, it contains omega-3 fatty acids, which have been shown to limit the formation of platelets and the development of blood clots. Second, like ginger it contains salicylate, which has also been shown to limit the chances of blood clots from forming. Avocadoes are easy to find at most grocery stores and make an excellent addition to just about any dish, from guacamole to sandwiches and salads. Just be sure to check with your family doctor to ensure it won’t interact negatively with any blood-thinning medications you may have been prescribed. See Our Another Vedeos: 1.

Coumadin
 
13:59
EmpoweRN.com Hi Guys! I really hope this video helps you out a ton! This medication is one of the major ones you will see in adult Med Surg & Critical care. Although it saves lives, we have to be very careful when taking care of patients with clotting tendencies. Furthermore, we must also educate our patients about diet restrictions, safety precautions and the importance of their follow up appointments. I hope this video simplifies at least a little bit of it ;) Also, remember... you can access the audio of the video to download on your device, so that not matter where you are, you can always be learning. If you prefer to watch the video without any music, you can go to my website... you will also find the audio there: http://wp.me/s4CVjD-coumadin I hope this & all of the videos help you tremendously. Much love, - Caroline Warfarin aka Coumadin is the most used oral anticoagulant in the world and has been used for more than 50 years for therapy in prevention of thrombus formation and subsequent thromboembolic events. Anticoagulants are blood thinners which prevent formation of blood clots as well as prevent existent blood clots from increasing in size. Blood clots can hinder blood circulation and lead to serious medical conditions, like stroke, heart attack and pulmonary embolism. Thus warfarin is helpful in treating and preventing vein and artery blockage, stroke and heart attack. Mechanism of Action Warfarin slows down the formation of blood clots within 24 hours, but the complete effect takes place between 72 to 96 hours after taking the medication. Blood clot formation is a complicated process which requires certain compounds known as coagulating factors to be present. These coagulating factors are produced by the liver. In the presence of sufficient vitamin K. Warfarin acts by inhibiting the presence of vitamin K and this inhibits the formation of coagulating factors. Substances that require vitamin K for their formation are: the anticoagulant proteins C and S and factors II, VII, IX, and X. Therefore, medications like warfarin block coagulating factors and disturb the process of clot formation. Thus slowing down blood clot formation. In the case of blood clots that are already formed, warfarin stops the clot from getting bigger. It also prevents breakage of the clot which can be otherwise dangerous if it travels in the bloodstream and blocks blood vessels. Warfarin cannot destroy or dissolve a blood clot that is already there. But the blood clot itself may slowly dissolve with time. Nor can Warfarin reverse ischemic tissue damage either, but, may help avoid secondary thromboembolic complications that can be dangerous and even fatal. Indication Warfarin (Coumadin) is indicated for/to: • Prophylaxis, pulmonary embolism (PE), venous thrombosis and its extension, and to prevent blood clots from moving to other parts of the body. • Reduce the risk of another stroke or heart attack in clients who already have had stroke or heart attack, and to reduce the risk of death. • Prevent and treat blood clots associated with atrial fibrillation (irregular rapid heartbeat), heart-valve replacement and blood clots in lungs and legs.

20 Side effects Of Green Tea.
 
04:40
Green tea side effects and risks There are little to no known side effects or contraindications to drinking green tea for adults. However, the following risks or complications should be made clear: Caffeine sensitivity - those with severe caffeine sensitivities could experience insomnia, anxiety, irritability, nausea, or upset stomach. Blood thinners - those taking blood thinners (anticoagulant drugs) such as Coumadin/warfarin should drink green tea with caution due to its vitamin K content. It's also recommended to avoid green tea and aspirin, because they both reduce the clotting effectiveness of platelets. Other stimulants - if taken with stimulant drugs, green tea could increase blood pressure and heart rate. Green tea supplements contain high levels of active substances that can trigger side effects and interact with other herbs, supplements, or medications. Green tea supplements are unregulated by the FDA and may also contain other substances unsafe for health or with unproven health benefits. Always check with a doctor before starting any herb or supplement regimen. ________________________________________________________________
Natural Blood Thinners that Prevent Blood Clots
 
03:29
Natural Blood Thinners that Prevent Blood Clots Doctors prescribe blood thinners for numerous reasons. It might be because you suffer from a heart or cardiovascular disease, an abnormal heart rhythm called atrial fibrillation or a congenital heart defect. Or perhaps you’ve had a heart valve replacement or you’re at risk of blood clots occurring after having surgery. Blood thinners are medicines that prevent blood clots from forming and help blood flow smoothly through your veins and arteries. As the name suggests, these prescribed medicines don’t actually make your blood thinner or break up clots. These medicines help keep your blood from getting thicker and forming new clots. They can also slow the growth of existing ones, thus reducing your risk of dangerous clots. While blood thinners are helpful in many ways, they can also cause side effects in some people. Excessive bleeding is the most common reaction and can occur in several ways, including heavy periods, bloody or discolored urine or feces, nosebleeds, bleeding gums and prolonged bleeding from a cut. A 2014 study published in PLOS ONE found that a blood thinner commonly prescribed to prevent blood clots after a hip or knee replacement is associated with an increased risk of post-surgery bleeding or infection. Some other possible side effects include dizziness, muscle weakness, hair loss and skin rashes. Blood thinners should be taken as suggested by your doctor or it can lead to serious consequences. To be on the safe side and reduce the risk of blood clots, you can always try some foods and herbs that are natural anticoagulants and can help prevent your blood from clotting. Caution: Anticoagulant foods and herbs should not be used as a substitute for prescription anticoagulant medication. In addition, some natural blood-thinning foods and herbs could interact with prescription medicines. Consult your doctor to determine what’s best for you. Here are some of the best natural blood thinners to prevent blood clots. 1. Ginger Ginger is an herb that can effectively help reduce blood clotting. It can also prevent new clots and reduce your risk of a stroke. In addition, it promotes healthy blood circulation throughout the body. 2. Turmeric Turmeric is best known as a natural anti-inflammatory herb, but it also works as a natural blood thinner. This happens mainly due to its curcumin content. Curcumin can help prevent your platelets from clumping together and forming clots. 3. Garlic Garlic is good for your heart health and is even more beneficial if you are at a higher risk of having blood clots. Sulfur-containing compounds like adenosine, allicin and paraffinic polysulfides in garlic act as blood thinners. 4. Cinnamon Cinnamon is another effective natural anticoagulant. It contains coumarin, a chemical that acts as a powerful anticoagulant. This sweet spice is even capable of lowering blood pressure and relieving inflammatory conditions. Cinnamon also reduces the chances of having a stroke. 5. Cayenne Pepper Cayenne pepper has a powerful blood-thinning effect on your body and also increases circulation. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Our Social Links: Subscribe To Our Channel : https://goo.gl/7YPKcz For more tips see our blog: https://naturalhealthcarenhc.blogspot.com like us in Facebook: https://goo.gl/MmjtyD Follow us on twitter: https://goo.gl/USDg3k Google plus: https://goo.gl/B5B2oz Special thanks to: http://www.top10homeremedies.com If you found this information cool, useful or valuable please hit share and let your friends benefit from this as well!

The disadvantage to this test is that it varies from lab to lab. It requires a simple calculation for patients who are on anti-coagulation therapy. The therapeutic range is always 1.5 to 2 times the range indicated on the lab report. INR (International Normalized Ratio) is the current standard lab test to evaluate anti-coagulation therapy. It uses a standardized testing reagent, so it does not vary from lab to lab. No calculation is required to interpret the results. Additional Information: In healthy people an INR of 1.1 or below is considered normal.

Diet Tips: 7 Best Foods that can thin your Blood
 
00:57
Your body has a way of protecting you from bleeding. Most of the time your blood’s ability to clot is a good thing. But there are times when blood clots can be dangerous. The thickness of your blood can depend on a number of factors. Your red blood cell count has the most influence on the viscosity of your blood. Thinner blood may improve your overall circulation and lower your risk of vascular issues and accidents such as blood clots and hemorrhages that can negatively affect your heart, brain, intestines, eyes, limbs and other organs. But keep in mind blood thinning is not meant for everyone. Here are 7 best foods that helps to thin your blood naturally. Turmeric Turmeric is a spice, which can work on blood platelets to prevent clots from forming. Ginger Contains salicylate, the chemical acetyl salicylic acid, derived from salicylate, is what makes up your common everyday aspirin. Garlic It as long been known to help thin the blood, reduce blood pressure, and stop platelet aggression in order to ease blood flow. Onion Contain adenosine, which acts as an anticoagulant. Anticoagulants prevent your blood from clotting. Cinnamon Powerful anti-coagulant, capable of lowering blood pressure and relieving inflammatory conditions. Almonds Very good source of vitamin E. Vitamin E has anti-clotting properties and can act as an effective blood thinner. Pineapple Contains the enzyme bromelain, acts as a natural blood thinner due to its ability to help lessen the adhesiveness of blood platelets.

Beyond aspirin: beyond Coumadin; Eliquis, Xarelto and the other NOACs
 
09:28
PrevMedHeartRisk.com Over 90% of heart attacks and strokes are due to clots, not plaque. Therefore, "blood thinners", or antiplatelet medications are critical concerns if you have plaque and inflammation. Aspirin was covered in another video. Viewers have asked that we discuss the newer medications. Warfarin (or coumadin) was the next generation after aspirin. It's been around for years and helped cover situations, like stents, that required more than aspirin. Warfarin has always had a lot of problems. That's understandable. It's been the major component of rat poisons. It requires constant monitoring. There are often bleeding episodes associated with things as simple as a change in diet. Plavix is the next generation. (Clopidogrel). It's a major step forward. But it really should be accompanied by a genetic test to get the right dose. There is yet another generation of these medications. They are called NOACs (Novel Oral AntiCoagulants). Many have debated that these are as safe - or safer than- aspirin. Ellaquis and Xarelto are examples. Studies show that less than 1/3 of patients needing these meds are actually taking them. Is that the doctors' fault? or the patients? Clearly both. A couple of other things are mentioned: CHAD2VASC2 and DAPT, or Dual AntiPlatelet Therapy. About Dr. Brewer - Ford Brewer is a physician that started as an Emergency Doctor.

I know it may seem unreasonably long… but it is not. Take your time, follow the instructions and read each word slowly. Lets get started ;) Question Number 1 of 4: Title: NCLEX Question: Bridging Coumadin until INR Therapeutic A client was admitted for the treatment of deep vein thrombosis. The attending physician ordered the following medication: Heparin 5,000 units S.Q. every 8 hours, Warfarin (Coumadin) 5 mg P.O, start today. The nurse’s best action would be: A. Administer neither the heparin nor coumadin B. Administer both heparin and coumadin C. Administer only prescribed coumadin D. Administer only prescribed heparin Correct Answer: B – It takes several days for the Coumadin to reach its maximum anticoagulant effect, and heparin and Coumadin therapy sometimes overlap.

Blood Thinners for Heart Disease. What are blood thinners?. Blood thinners counteract blood clumps, which can stop blood stream to the heart. Find out about how they function, who should take them, symptoms, and common cures. Blood thinners are meds taken orally or intravenously (through a vein) to keep a blood coagulation. Blood clumps can stop the stream of blood to the heart, lungs, or cerebrum. They can cause a heart assault or stroke.

Blood thinners must be taken precisely as coordinated. When you don't take enough, the drug won't be as viable. Taking excessively can prompt extreme dying. What blood thinners do. Some blood thinners thin the blood to keep platelets from staying together in the veins and conduits.

Antiplatelet drugs avert platelets (called platelets) from bunching together and shaping clumps. Cases of antiplatelet drugs are: *aspirin. *clopidogrel (Plavix). *dipyridamole (Persantine). *ticlopidine (Ticlid). Specialists frequently recommended drugs called anticoagulants to individuals who have been determined to have a few types of coronary illness. "Coagulate" is a therapeutic term that signifies "to clump." These blood thinners anticipate blood clusters by expanding the measure of time it takes your blood to clump. Anticoagulants keep clusters from framing. Basic anticoagulant blood thinners include: *warfarin (Coumadin, Jantoven). *enoxaparin (Lovenox). *heparin. More up to date anticoagulants with less danger of draining include: *dabigatran (Pradaxa). *apixaban (Eliquis). *rivaroxaban (Xarelto). Your specialist will precisely screen your dose of blood-diminishing solution. They may every so often run a prothrombin time (PT) test for a few drugs. This blood test measures your worldwide standardized proportion (INR). INR is the rate at which your blood coagulations. A fitting INR rate fluctuates from individual to individual as indicated by their restorative history. Remaining inside your INR range can keep you from draining too much or coagulating too effortlessly. Conceivable reactions of blood thinners. Blood thinners may cause reactions in a few people. Over the top draining is the most widely recognized response. It can happen in an assortment of ways, including: *heavy periods. *bloody or stained pee or excrement. *nosebleeds. *bleeding gums. *prolonged seeping from a cut. Opposite reactions can include: *dizziness. *muscle shortcoming. *hair misfortune. *rashes. The nearness of blood thinners in your framework can build your danger of interior seeping after damage. Go to the doctor's facility immediately on the off chance that you encounter any of these reactions in the wake of falling or knocking your head — regardless of whether you don't have outside dying. Your specialist may instruct you to confine your support in contact games to lessen the danger of dying. In any case, this doesn't mean you can't practice or carry on with a typical life. Swimming, strolling, and running are magnificent types of activity and are ok for the vast majority taking anticoagulants. Talk about with your specialist which sorts of activity might be best for you. Tell your dental practitioner that you're taking blood thinners to maintain a strategic distance from over the top seeping amid consistent teeth cleanings. It's additionally essential to secure yourself when utilizing blades, scissors, or yard hardware. Conceivable medication connections. Different nourishments, herbs, and meds can meddle with blood thinners. These substances can make the medication pretty much successful than your dose would recommend. Be that as it may, not all blood thinners are influenced by similar substances. It's essential to talk with your specialist or cardiologist about your eating routine and how it might affect the adequacy of your medicine. Vitamin K.

Nose bleeding |epistaxis| Define, causes,diet & treatment| नाक से खून बहने के रोकने के उपाय।
 
03:22
Epistaxis (Nosebleed) Haemorrhage or bleeding from the nose is called epistaxis. Bleeding from the nose, either spontaneous or induced by nose picking or trauma. Other conditions that predispose a person to nosebleeds include: exposure to warm, dry air for prolonged periods of time, nasal and sinus infections, allergic rhinitis, Deficiency of vit.c & k and Hypertension (high blood pressure)Use of blood thinning medications. Alcohol abuse. nasal foreign body (object stuck in the nose), vigorous nose blowing, nasal surgery, deviated or perforated nasal septum,and. cocaine use. You may have frequent nosebleeds if you have low blood platelets, or a blood clotting disorder. Taking antihistamines and decongestants for allergies, colds, or sinus problems can also dry out the nasal membranes and cause nosebleeds.  Less commonly, an underlying disease process or taking certain medications may cause a nosebleed or make it more difficult to control. Inability of the blood to clot is most often due to blood-thinning medications such as warfarin (Coumadin), clopidogrel bisulfate (Plavix), nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), or aspirin. Topical nasal medications, such as corticosteroids and antihistamines, may sometimes lead to nosebleeds. Liver disease, chronic alcohol abuse, kidney disease, platelet disorders, and inherited blood clotting disorders can also interfere with blood clotting and predispose to nosebleeds. Vascular malformations in the nose and nasal tumors are rare causes of nosebleeds. High blood pressure may contribute to bleeding, but is rarely the sole reason for a nosebleed. It is often the anxietyassociated with the nosebleed that leads to the elevation in blood pressure. https://www.emedicinehealth.com › The following tips may reduce your risk for developing nosebleeds. Use saltwater (saline) nose drops or a spray. Avoid forceful nose-blowing.Do not pick your nose or put your finger in your nose to remove crusts. Avoid lifting or straining after a nosebleed. Elevate your head on one or two pillows while sleeping. https://www.webmd.com ›  The common signs of excessive nosebleed are: Excess blood loss may cause dizziness and fainting, confusion, loss of alertness and light-headedness. ... Diet & Lifestyle Advice Some people, especially those having pitta constitution display a tendency to suffer from epistaxis repeatedly. Such individuals should avoid hot, spicy food and spices like pepper. Drinking excessive tea, coffee or alcohol must be avoided. Playing or walking in hot sun should be avoided. Avoid high temperature environments and humid places. Avoid keeping awake at night. Drink sufficient amount of water, milk, coconut water, grapes, etc. Eat gulkand and amla jam regularly. https://www.jiva.com/diseases/epistaxis/ Home Remedies Vinegar. Take a cloth or cotton ball and wet it with white vinegar. Plug it in the nostril that's bleeding. Vinegar helps seal up the blood vessel wall. Whole-wheat bread. Zinc is a nutrient known to help maintain the body's blood vessels. Eat whole-wheat bread and brown rice, two foods high in zinc. Or, for a snack, try some popcorn, which also contains zinc. Home Remedies from the Freezer Ice. Ice is nice for stopping bleeding, constricting the blood vessels, and reducing inflammation (if the nose is injured). Place crushed iced into a plastic zipper-type bag and cover with a towel. (A bag of frozen vegetables works fine, too.) Place the compress on the bridge of the nose and hold until well after the bleeding stops. Home Remedies from the Refrigerator Dark-green leafy vegetables. These are high in vitamin K, which is essential for proper blood clotting. Oranges and orange juice. Keeping those blood vessels in top form is one way to prevent them from breaking so easily. Vitamin C is necessary to the formation of collagen, which helps create a moist lining in your nose. So drink and eat vitamin C-rich foods to help stave off nosebleeds. Home Remedies from the Sink Water. Dry winter air and mountain air can dry out the nose in no time. Being well hydrated helps. Always drink 8 glasses of water a day, but have a few more during the driest times and in the driest places. Vitamin E. Keep your nasal membranes moisturized by applying vitamin E several times a day. Break open a capsule and coat your pinky finger or a cotton swab and gently wipe it just inside your nostrils. This is especially good to do at night before going to sleep. https://health.howstuffworks.com/wellness/natural-medicine/home-remedies/home-remedies-for-nose-bleeds.htm
