Blood Viscosity Explains Many of the Risk Factors for Cardiovascular Disease

Drs. Ralph Holsworth and Jonathan Wright presented a fascinating explanation of how risk factors work in the body. Hypertension, low HDL, high LDL, high triglycerides, diabetes, obesity, age and the male gender all have increased viscosity of the blood. This means the blood is sluggish and clots more easily. These doctors measure blood viscosity with a specialized test in their offices. They have found that blood donation, therapeutic phlebotomy, nattokinase and fish oil can all reduce viscosity and thus lower the risk.
