This month we had big reasons for celebrating! One of my clients saw a huge difference in the amount of fibrin found in her blood after implementing her protocol for a few months.
What is Fibrin?
Fibrin is a type of protein that helps heal wounds during an injury. As seen in the image above it is shaped like a thread and interlaces to create a web around blood cells which causes the blood to clot. After the fibrin has finished it's job, your body creates enzymes to clean up this web and leave everything like it was before. Without fibrin forming when we need it, we would be in a lot of trouble.
The problem is when there is too much fibrin formation in the blood this can happen a few different ways.
Fibrin is produced in the liver in response to inflammation.
Certain enzymes deficiencies can accelerate production.
Pain medications disrupts the bodies signal to create enzymes, and fibrin continues forming.
Increased gut permeability causes constant fibrin formation to occur to repair the intestinal lining.
The Problem with Excess Fibrin
Overtime fibrin strands thicken and harden which can lead to:
obstruction of blood flow in the circulatory system
