I am a bit bummed even though I have been on Coumadin ( I take the Warfarin Sodium version ) for about 22 years since I was around 6 years old. I have a mechanical heart valve ( St. Jude's ); as I have heart related issues predominantly hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy. A bit bummed because of Warfarin since it seems to interact with nearly everything. I feel like I can not get the nutrients my body requires.
Is it possible to go raw foods ? I would love to be able to drink those green smoothies and consume other such things. Though I don't want anything to damage my heart valve either or risk a stroke/heart attack or internal bleeding.
I would just like to have a more optimal nutritional intake, am not sure I would be 100% raw though I really want to incorporate it.
Here is a bit more on my background :
-- hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy , has a mechanical heart valve
-- have been underweight a majority of my life / malnourished / currently still am somewhat underweight though finally enjoys food again as i had ...
-- what mimicked Crohn's Disease for several years, it was horrendous pain from which i am in remission now
I believe that is all for now; please let me know if anything else is required. I hope this is the correct place to post.
