No one would question the magnitude of the Opioid Crisis, which claimed the lives of nearly 50,000 people and was declared a Public Health Emergency by the POTUS in 2017. While Opioids is a big problem, there is another “silent killer” that poses a much bigger problem, Blood Clots. More than 100,000 lives are claimed annually by blood clots. While there are a number of factors associated with increased risk of developing a clot, we focus on one large group in particular that experiences a much greater risk, pregnant women. Expecting mothers have a 5x
greater risk of developing a deadly clot and that risk increases to 20x immediately following child birth. It is our goal to make people aware of this problem and provide them with safe, natural (and in many cases free) ways of preventing blood clots.
