Oh please - don't panic!!! While bothersome and potentially dangerous if ignored - yours won't be ignored, so it's only bothersome!
Some people can find enough benefit in just taking turmeric, as it has some blood thinning qualities - a bit more than say ginger, which also can thin the blood. So how much help your body needs with this will dictate what you can safely use. Only need a little bit of help? Turmeric could be enough - and bonus! It's an anti-inflammatory!!!
Many who need more than what turmeric can do, use nattokinase or lumbrokinase to help thin their blood. And the main side effect? You'll notice that you bruise easier, and you will bleed easier, so the right amount is necessary. I hope your doc is on board with this, or you can at least get them to do regular blood testing to watch this.
And your doc is right, it's very likely due to your infections - but that doesn't mean to ignore what could easily turn into a bad situation with blood clots!!
And I'm so sorry about
not answering your email yet - I do seem to have too many irons in the fire!
