There are various anticoagulants that your doctor could prescribe should you need it. Although they are called blood thinners, these medicines do not really thin your blood. Instead, they decrease the blood's ability to clot. Decreased clotting keeps fewer harmful blood clots from forming and from blocking blood vessels.
Other more powerful blood thinners, such as heparin, need to be injected by a needle into your bloodstream. These kinds of blood thinners will be given to you in the hospital, where you can be closely watched for complication.

If you want to follow a more natural approach the Journal of the American Medical Association recently published an article in which they wrote that tomato juice seems to reduce the blood’s ability to clot (platelet aggregation). The scientists found that after just three weeks of regular tomato juice drinking, patients benefited from the blood thinning effect.
Other options may be Garlic, Fish Liver Oil, Ginkgo, or Vitamin E.
