Would you offer me some advice about an alternative/natural/non-invasive way of breaking up a blood clot in the brain? My close relative has had all the traditional therapies that the hospital could give her. Her overall health is fragile and would not withstand surgery or other invasive procedures. I have read that bromelain (pineapple extract) helps to break up blood clots. Her pulse is varying widely and I feel that the clot must be dissolved.
