I was recently posted this question here which I thought was interesting as to when to and when not to …….

Hi really enjoy your site.I think I may have symptoms of a DVT. What can I take to prevent it?

Hi there
Deep Vein Thrombosis can be very serious. Symptoms can include:
1 pain, swelling and tenderness in one of your legs (usually your calf)
2 a heavy ache in the affected area.
3 warm skin in the area of the clot.
4 redness of your skin, particularly at the back of your leg below the knee

If you have any of these symptoms I advise seeing a medical practitioner as soon as possible.
There are many reasons as to why DVT occurs and without seeing you I cannot say exactly how you would prevent it but I would suggest in increasing the health of your cardiovascular system so eat foods which contain high levels of vitamin c for cardio repair, plenty of omega 3 and 6 found in fish and seeds to help the liver detox the blood so that it isn’t so sticky. Fresh green vegetables also help liver function, they also contain plenty of calcium and magnesium which helps maintain flexibility of the cardiovascular system.

I recently watched an interview of a doctor who works extensively with Shiatsu practitioners in a hospital in Germany – he said if you need a hip replacement see a surgeon, if you want to prevent a hip replacement see a shiatsu practitioner. So if you already feel you have a DVT I strongly advise that you seek immediate medical assistance after which look at the dietary changes that can help maintain a heathly body.
I hope this helps – happy holidays
