PART 1: The Blood Clot Episode
The Backstory & Why We Don’t Run to the ER
After the last 3 years of medical insanity — like people dying in hospitals as a result of the ONLY allowed protocol (vents and Remdesivir), but rarely dying at home of the flu; public “health” officials causing financial and emotional devastation (skyrocketing suicide and abuse) with mask mandates, school closures, and lockdowns; authorities, both private and public, mandating the most dangerous vaccine ever created causing sudden death and permanent disability…
After all that, Hal and I made a big medical decision: we will never go to a hospital again unless we are carried in helpless as kittens. [As you’ll see, we had to back down a bit on that declaration.]
How we came to that decision
About 15 months ago, I had a debilitating stomach bug episode. I thought I was going to die on the potty. I’d lost 25 pounds in 2 weeks and I was starting on week 4. I could not eat, very weak. I needed help.
Normally I would have gone to the ER. Hospitals have saved my life twice. But things were different back then. Now, they might insist on the vaccine before treating me. They might not let Hal in, we might both have to be masked and isolated. And even if they didn’t do any of that stuff when we got there, the policy could change in a minute. It had happened to friends.
Suddenly, we were far more fearful of going to a hospital and what they might do to us than of me dying at home on the potty… upside down world.
Turned out to be incredibly freeing.
I called everyone I knew for advice and finally hit on calling my homeopathy instructor who had just started taking clients. We hired her, and she saved my life over the next 4 weeks. She’s here, I highly recommend her.
Suddenly, accidentally, we’d been freed of ConMed (conventional medicine)!!! We realized we had options other than the ER! Wow.
We had already sworn off “health” insurance. Why would we pay for something we’d never use? If we got diabetes, we’d reverse it with diet. Heart disease is avoidable with lifestyle modifications. Cancer as well. Chemo and lifelong meds were out of the question.
At this point in our lives, we’d watched ConMed kill too many family members and friends to want to go that way. Hal’s baby sister, older sister, mom, dad, my baby sister, my SIL and several very dear friends were all killed by the only protocol hospitals are allowed to use: surgery, chemo, and radiation. Heck, if we got cancer, no way would we do their precious cut, poison, burn protocol, then starve to death while doped up on fentanyl which is how ConMed forces you to die when you have cancer.
I’m very angry about what they did to my family and friends. Meanwhile, cancer is being cured by alternative means all over the world. Well… that’s another post. Back to the current situation.
This was huge.
In our dotage, we’d just sworn off hospitals and ConMed. Now THEY can piss off. Our golden years are the most profitable years for ConMed and we just flipped them the bird. Feels right.
The Blood Clot
So here we are, Thursday 3/16. Last Monday, Hal had some thigh pain but didn’t think much of it. Except it started getting worse until he woke up Wednesday with a very warm, swollen leg and lots of pain unless he was lying down. Pain so bad he couldn’t stand for more than 20 minutes.
My first and only thought was a blood clot. No real reason I thought of that except I couldn’t think of anything else that, with no precipitating “event” or accident, would affect one leg, cause so much pain and make it swollen like that. Not elephantine but definitely swollen.
I called a pharmacist friend and two other friends who are constantly reading and learning about health like I do. All three thought “blood clot”.
So Hal and I started researching. There are only a million ConMed sites that talk about blood clots, symptoms, and treatments and they are all the same. Hal’s symptoms match, the fix is blood thinners:
The prevention and treatment of blood clots primarily involves the use of anticoagulant medications or, as they are commonly referred to, “blood thinners.” While these medications do not actually “thin” the blood, they do slow the body’s ability to form new clots and keep existing clots from getting bigger.
Not only that, most people are treated at home. That was encouraging!
The immediate treatment
Two Aspirin My pharmacist friend suggested starting with 2 aspirin so Hal did that first. Aspirin is a miracle drug and the only pharmaceutical we keep in the house.
Nattokinase About a month ago, we started sporadically taking Serrapeptase, Lumbrokinase, and Nattokinase for the scar tissue in Hal’s ankles and my scar tissue from a couple of surgeries.
Serra dissolves scar tissue, Lumbro supports healthy blood flow, and Natto dissolves excess proteins in the blood (aka blood clots). This is why Natto specifically is also part of the Spike Detox protocol.
Along with the aspirin, Hal took a dose of those and will continue with that 2-3x/day as well as other supplements until symptoms subside, then drop down to a normal dose.
Nat Sulph 6x This is a homeopathic remedy for edema so he’s taking this 2x a day till the swelling subsides.
Wait and See
Although we don’t have a formal diagnosis, we have confidence this is what we are dealing with. Hal has no fever, is in good spirits when not in pain, eats as usual, and is able to work at this desk.
If there is no relief in 24-36 hours, we will re-evaluate. Our next step will be a chiropractor (may do that tomorrow anyway). Our last stop will be a doctor… there are a few who think outside the box. We’ll see.
Maybe we’ll pay a huge price for ignoring the ER and ConMed. We are willing to risk it and grateful it’s still a choice in America. We’ll keep you posted!
UPDATE Friday 3/17/23
FIRST: a friend who is a nurse strongly suggested we go to the ER. She said the clot could move anytime, bits could break up and go to the heart and lungs. In fact, it might already have done that, making this a very dangerous time.
When the clot is in a vein, any bits that break off will go UP to the heart which then pumps it into the lungs which is called a PE (Pulmonary Embolism or blood clot in the lungs). If there’s a hole in your heart, the bits could go to the brain, otherwise, it goes to the lungs.
Did you know that at least 50% of people who have a PE don’t know it? I know, weird, right? But you won’t know it until the clot moves into a position that gets can harm.
We have questions (and got the answers). Here’s a short list:
What is the test to determine if the clot has moved? Seems like this would be an imaging scan of some sort: ultrasound? MRI? What is the tool and what do you have to ingest to have the tool work? No way is Hal drinking Gadolinium for an MRI.
Answer: ultrasound to diagnose the clot, CT scan of the chest to see if it’s moved. More on that in part 2.
Is that test definitive?
Answer: yes, both ultrasound and CT are definitive.
What is the treatment if the clot has moved? Will it be different than blood thinners?
Answer: nope. Anti-coagulants, aka blood thinners are the treatment.
Is there any treatment other than blood thinners whether or not the clot has moved?
Answer: nope, see above.
BIG QUESTION: What else could this be?
Answer: never got this answered because we did an ultrasound and got a confirmed blood clot diagnosis… but the obvious first guess is cancer.
SECOND: we saw our regular, very experienced chiro. He said Hal’s leg was way out of whack and he did a few adjustments. Hal told the chiro all his symptoms and chiro never mentioned blood clots.
So we told him about our research and how our friends had all thought first of a blood clot. The chiro said that was very unlikely, he’d only seen 3 in his 3 decades of practice. He said that most blood clots appear after a surgery or because of certain medications or a pre-existing condition that leads to a clot. He said Hal should continue to improve after this adjustment and to come for a follow-up next week.
While we are greatly relieved, Hal is still in pain. The swelling and heat have not changed.

Sally, thanks so much for your clear and entertaining writing. Your spike protein detox guide is just what my daughter needs ( if she will do it!). This article should give people an idea that ‘ConMed’ is not the only way and it reminds me to find good chiropractors and homeopaths in our new FL location. I love hearing about your life!
Sally thank you for sharing, it must be a scary. By sharing it helps so many others. I know some folks in similar situations. I’ve been on a journey myself trying to free myself from ConMed and medications. Praying for you and Hal. Keep us updated!!
