Herbal treatment of thrombosis
Phytotherapy: Medicinal plants for thrombosis
Phytotherapy in the treatment of thrombosis focuses on the use of plants for the following purposes:
– Plants with circulatory properties that improve blood circulation. They are mostly fluidizing components that reduce blood clotting ability.
– Diuretic plants that increase the expulsion of body fluids, and consequently promote greater elimination of toxins and therefore a purer and fluid blood flow.
– Plants with vasotonic properties that protect blood vessels and give them greater flexibility
Important Note: The use of these remedies along with other anticoagulant drugs may have side effects or incompatibilities. Consult your doctor before taking these remedies if you are taking these medications.
