Recommended Food

Mediterranean style diet with some modifications. This diet is rich in vegetables, fruit, fish, nuts and olive oil and low in dairy, sweets, and meats. The one recommended change would be to drastically reduce intake of processed grains, which increase the risk of diabetes, obesity and cardiovascular disease.

Teas, including green tea, have been shown in several population studies to reduce the risk of stroke and to replace platelet clumping.

Pomegranate juice reduces platelet clumping.

Additional foods to consider include turmeric, garlic, cayenne and ginger, all of which confer a mild blood-thinning effect.

Foods to Avoid

Simple sugars
