"Hans Larsen has delighted us again with this elegant and provocative book on the mechanisms of thrombosis and stroke. He is able to explain the intricate mechanisms involved in the underlying causes of thrombosis leading to strokes, then he provides us the clinical tests for each of these entities, and then offers a rational preventive means to alter this process. This book is a rich document replete with abundant references and will have a profound and enduring impact on patients attempting to understand and modify their risks for thrombosis and stroke, especially those with lone atrial fibrillation. Highly recommended, and a necessary supplemental companion for Hans Larsen's Lone Atrial Fibrillation: Towards A Cure."
Norman F. Fisher MD, CA, USA
"Never before has so much stroke-prevention information been consolidated into one complete,
concise, well-referenced, well-researched and very important publication. This book is not just for
afibbers, but for all health-conscious individuals looking to avoid blood clots and stroke by
understanding who is at risk, how clots form and how to prevent them. The author takes a
complex topic and breaks it down into understandable and useful anti-clotting strategies that
include a thorough examination of natural alternatives as well as prescription drugs. This is a
"must-have" reference everyone needs to own and read."
"Hans Larsen's new book Thrombosis and Stroke Prevention is an outstanding reference
work and mandatory reading for any layperson or doctor interested in substantially reducing the
risks of coronaries and strokes. It is also an outstanding reference for anyone contemplating
surgery, or anyone with serious medical problems."
"Hans Larsen's new book Thrombosis and Stroke Prevention is extremely valuable for
those of us with atrial fibrillation and for all adults. Hans clearly explains the body's pathways to
form blood clots and to dissolve them, the medications in common use to affect these processes,
and the natural alternatives that can be used to help prevent stroke. His analysis will also help to
prevent heart attack and blood clots in the lungs. Read this book; it may save your life!"
"Hans Larsen's knowledge on thrombosis and stroke prevention far exceeds that of most
conventional medical specialists in this area. This simple to read, cutting edge manual on natural
alternatives to stroke prevention is a must read for anyone contemplating anti-coagulation
therapy or simply wanting to prevent a stroke."
"Hans Larsen's new book Thrombosis and Stroke Prevention carefully walks the
concerned reader through this minefield of strokes, ischemic and hemorrhagic, and how best to
avoid them. His well-researched tables comparing the risks and benefits of the various
approaches to anticoagulation will not be found in the more traditional books on the topic. They
are easily understood by the layman and provide the cold, hard numbers needed for making the
difficult decisions involved in selecting the optimum stroke prevention protocol."
"Mr. Larsen guides the AF patient, and his physician, through the basics of blood clotting and
how this is affected by the various anti-platelet and anti-coagulant drugs. He makes a
particularly valuable contribution in his discussion of "natural", non-pharmaceutical
approaches to stroke prevention, which actually has relevance to the general, and not just
the AF, population. Those interested in AF and stroke would be hard put to find a more
valuable reference on the subject than Mr. Larsen's outstanding little book."
