    What exactly does this supplement do? I've heard it works as an anti-inflammatory, but I've also heard it helps with coagulation disorders. My husband is 42, and has been diagnosed with Avascular Necrosis, or AVN for short. He's not getting correct blood flow to certain bones, causing chronic pain and eventually the collapse of the bone itself.

    Any info would be greatly appreciated. :)

    Not to cause you work. But we have been discussing this a lot lately. Above is a search messages box. Type in bromelaine or hypercoagulation and you should get lots of info.

    Briefly, it is a digestive enzyme that if taken without food breaks down protein in the blood. It also has anti- inflammatory properties.

    Good luck in your search.

    Hi Cheryll,

    Please be sure your husband drinks lots of water with sea salt.

    Cellular dehydration (for all kinds of reasons) will also contribute to his problem.

    He needs half his body weight in ounces, and add a pinch of pure unrefined Sea or Rock Salt to every glass.

    Every day, I fill a 2 ltr container with water and add 1/4 tsp of this salt to it. That`s me sorted for the day then.

    You can`t overdose on this salt, so use it to your hearts content when cooking, - food tastes great now.

    Love Pat.
