    Yeah, I saw that when doing some research on natural foods that thin the blood back when I was going to appointments with my Dad when he was seeing a cardiologist. I asked if natural things like the Turmeric that he was already taking and maybe adding in some other things like that could be used in place of a prescribed drug, and they said that it wouldn't thin the blood enough.

    EDIT:
    A quick update: The doctor gave my Dad a heart monitor to wear continuously for a couple days. He said it indicated that my Dad's heart flutter has come back, although we don't know how bad yet. I'll go with him to his next appointment which is Monday afternoon. Then we'll get the details. It sounds like the doctor wants him to stay on blood thinner now.

    I went with him to his appointment yesterday. The doctor went over his heart monitor results. We were surprised to find that my Dad's heart is in Atrial Flutter almost 100% of the time. It was a big surprise because his last several EKG's have turned out negative for it. So now he'll be staying on Eliquis, although the doctor finally decided to take him off the low-dose aspirin someone else put him on (and got mad at me for questioning it when I pointed out that the American College of Cardiology and the American Heart Association issued a joint recommendation to now longer use it). He's also been taken off of water pills.

    Good the holter monitor showed what's happening with your dad's heart, and I hope the med change has him feeling better.
