    Garlic as a health supplement

    I'm not really sure where to put this...I will be weaning off a blood thinning medicine in the next month or so. I am looking to ramp up on some kinds of supplements as I get off the drugs to help keep my blood thin and (hopefully) prevent the clot from coming back. I know that turmeric and garlic are well know for thinning blood, amongst other things. I already love garlic...my question here (maybe it sounds silly) how can you tank up on garlic and not smell like it? Does a steam room get the odor out?

    Fish oil has a slight blood thinning effect and has well documented health benefits.

    Is this something your Dr is aware of?

    You should discuss this with your doctor instead of an internet forum.

    "Taking garlic may increase the risk of bleeding. If you take an anticoagulant (blood thinner) such as warfarin (Coumadin) or if you need surgery, tell your health care provider if you’re taking or planning to take garlic dietary supplements."
