Best ways to thin your blood

ways to thin your blood

Let’s talk about ways to thin your blood. Even to this day, blood disease is the top killer of Americans. But Americans are living longer due to advances in medical science, which is why I drink so much coffee.

But let’s not change the subject. Heart disease is still the top killer of Americans. Cancer is on the rise. But we’ll save that topic for another day.

Let’s talk about how to thin your blood

The best way to prevent heart disease? Thin your blood. How do you do that?

Well, the best two ways are alcohol and aspirin. A lot of doctors used to recommend drinking a drink daily. However, now they’re afraid of lawsuits so a lot of doctors will no longer even bring that up. So, they talk about aspirin instead.

Yes, if you’re an alcoholic or have alcoholism in your family, you may not want to drink daily. However, if you’re not, I would strongly recommend alcohol.

Alcohol is enjoyable. I’m not one of those anti-drinking people by any means. I enjoy my drink. Plus, alcohol is a social lubricant.

Now if you’re one of those people who like to beat people up when you drink, maybe you shouldn’t drink. Take a daily aspirin instead. Ask your doctor how much. I don’t go this route so I’m not aware of how to do it. I just know it’s a good substitute for alcohol.

Foods?

Sure there are foods. But they’re simply not as effective. (I probably offended some hippie but they get offended by everything I say anyways).

Ginger, turmeric, cayenne peppers, Vitamin E, Omega-3s, drinking lots of water, all these help. All these have various properties that thin your blood.

Water of course is common sense. Blood is made of water, and drinking lots of water helps thin your blood. Besides, you should be drinking lots of water anyways. It may even help prevent cancer, and it would definitely help you smell better.

Ginger, turmeric, cayenne peppers, and some other related foods have anti-coagulants or anti-coagulant properties. Same with Vitamin E. Omega-3s help reduce inflammation.

Exercise to thin your blood?

No, not directly. However, exercise helps you lose weight and we all know how hard obesity is on your heart. So directly, no. Indirectly, yes.

Now, there are prescription medications to thin your blood. A lot of them make you avoid rigorous exercise.

This is yet another reason I write these health articles in the first place. If you got to the point where you have to take prescription medications to thin your blood, you got to this blog years too late.

I’m writing so the only reason you’re taking prescription medications is because you’re pretty fucking old. I write about health to prevent getting to this point.

I plan on lifting heavy weights and long, brisk walks even in my 80s. I want to be still traveling the world in my 80s. That’s who I write this blog for.

I don’t write this blog for regular people. It’s specifically written for people who 1) love quality art/music, 2) want to be rich so they can do what they want (I hate misers and “frugal” people with a passion), 3) people who want to be healthy, happy, and fun.

If you’ve been taking my advice seriously, you’ll be considerably healthier than most people your age.

That was a sea cave we found in Maui. This is why I write about health – so I could do this shit in my 80s and 90s and I hope to meet people with the same mindset.
