Ayurvedic Treatment For Hypercoagulability With Herbal Remedies


When we get injured somewhere and we start to bleed. Then our body tries to stop the bleeding and starts the healing process by clot formation, in this mechanism platelets in our blood stick together to form the blood clot and this process is called coagulation. If blood has increased its tendency to clot or thrombose then it is referred to as hypercoagulation. When the blood begins to clot within the arteries or veins and create an embolus or thrombus then it can travel through the bloodstream, causing pulmonary embolism, deep vein thrombosis or myocardial infarction. This activity assesses the cause and symptoms of hypercoagulability and develops a disease that needs emergency management to recover.



Hypercoagulability is a condition in which blood starts to coagulate within the arteries and veins. When the embolus is formed in arteries it may lead to Myocardial infarction and stroke, and if embolus is formed in veins then it may lead to deep venous thrombosis and pulmonary embolism. Mechanism and management of disease differ for arterial and venous thrombosis. In this process thrombus may migrate to local or distant areas resulting in luminal obstruction. This is usually a genetic or acquired disease, genetic (inherited) condition means patients have tendency to form the blood clots by birth and acquired condition is a result of age, any surgery, any underlying medical condition or any ongoing medication that enhance the risk of hypercoagulability.
