In fact, venous thrombosis is completely preventable and controllable.

The World Health Organization warns that four hours of inactivity can increase the risk of venous thrombosis. Therefore, to stay away from venous thrombosis, exercise is an effective prevention and control measure.

1. Avoid long-term sedentary: the most likely to induce blood clots

Prolonged sitting is most likely to induce blood clots. In the past, the medical community believed that taking a long-distance plane was closely related to the incidence of deep vein thrombosis, but the latest research found that sitting in front of a computer for a long time has also become a major cause of the disease. Medical experts call this disease "electronic thrombosis".

​​Sitting in front of a computer for more than 90 minutes can reduce blood flow in the knee by 50 percent, increasing the chance of blood clots.

To get rid of the "sedentary" habit in life, you should take a break after using the computer for 1 hour and get up to move.


2. To walk

In 1992, the World Health Organization pointed out that walking is one of the best sports in the world. It is simple, easy to do, and healthy. It is never too late to start this exercise, regardless of gender, age, or age.

In terms of preventing thrombosis, walking can maintain aerobic metabolism, enhance cardiopulmonary function, promote blood circulation throughout the body, prevent blood lipids from accumulating on the blood vessel wall, and prevent thrombosis.


3. Eat "natural aspirin" often

To prevent blood clots, it is recommended to eat black fungus, ginger, garlic, onion, green tea, etc. These foods are "natural aspirin" and have the effect of cleaning blood vessels. Eat less greasy, spicy and spicy food, and eat more food rich in vitamin C and vegetable protein.


4. Stabilize blood pressure

Hypertensive patients are at high risk of thrombosis. The sooner blood pressure is controlled, the sooner blood vessels can be protected and heart, brain, and kidney damage can be prevented.


5. Quit tobacco

Patients who smoke for a long time must be "ruthless" with themselves. A small cigarette will inadvertently destroy the blood flow everywhere in the body, and the consequences will be disastrous.


6. Relieve stress

Working overtime, staying up late, and increasing the pressure will cause emergency blockage of arteries, and even lead to occlusion, causing myocardial infarction.
