Few years ago I had 3 small clots in the lungs and was 10 days in hospital – they couldn’t find a cause and I was told I can get them any time again in the future. I was put on Warfarin for 6 months but VQ Scans were showing that my clots were not dissolving. By a chance I started to use organic cold press flaxseed oil (Melrose) in last 6 weeks prior to my last VQScan and I couldn’t believe when doctor told me happily that all my clots have dissolved. I was happy to but this time I didn’t know that flaxseed oil has a power to dissolve the clots. When 2 years later I read about this in a Halth and Haling magazine I’m using “religiously” flaxseed oil every day as a prevention for getting clots. I used to have it up to 5 teaspoons every day for about 3 years but last few years I just have it with my salads and vegetables. I never had any side effects, clotting blood is normal but it’s true that bruising is easier. Some brands of flaxseed oil are so bitter and awful smelling but organic cold press Melrose brand is a nicest. It is slightly bitter but very pleasant to use and I have embraced that flavour. Flaxseed oil is my guardian “dog” against the clots and so far about 10 years past and I’m clots free. That’s my experience and very positive.
