Blood Clots and Paleo

I've read 1000 of stories of the medical benefits of eating Paleo via Robb Wolf and articles online and also my chiropractor, but I'm concerned with one of my health problems and how eating this way will effect it. I have a DVT (Blood Clot) in my left leg and am currently taking Blood Thinners. With all the Vitamin K I consume my dosage changes daily and I take close to 12.0mg a day and check my INR weekly. I currently cannot take Salmon Oil (which I plan to do once I come off of the thinners)... But I'm just wondering if you know or heard of any health benefits when it comes to Paleo and DVT's. Thanks Kindly, Mid 20's and Curious.

Hi Ashley, I can sympathise, it's no fun. I got some good answers (particularly from Quilt) when I posted my clotting/ DVT/ INR question http://paleohacks.com/questions/69804/hack-my-pulmonary-embolism

There is nothing positive that grains, dairy, or legumes are doing for your circulation or your condition. That is the easy answer.

To be more of a realist any massive shift in your nutrition should be monitored along with your condition. Your medications dosage will likely have to be changed to fit your improved physiology as your body adapts to eating paleo.
