Germanium-132 is another popular supplement used for cancer symptoms. The active compound, carboxylethyl germanium sesquioxide, is found must abundantly in the Reishi mushroom, as well as in Ginseng.
Germanium is used commonly in Japan for treatment of cancer and pain, with doses of up to 800mg/day. For preventative use, however, 100-200mg/day is sufficient.
Ge-132 activates NK cells, promotes phagocytosis, induces alpha-interferon, increases T-helper cells and improves T cell activity.

I cannot safely recommend anything that could interfere with clotting times. These are things your physician must monitor and tightly control for your safety. Please ask your doctor about the organic germanium. Even though organic germanium might act against inflammation, it also acts on the heart, blood vessels, and liver. You don’t want to take anything which could exacerbate your already dangerous condition. The sources I read say germanium can cause anemia. We have lots of good products to support iron levels, so talk to your doctor about how to treat the anemia, and return here if you have any other questions about that. If you do eat high-iron foods or take an iron supplement, be sure to combine it with Vitamin C, which will increase the iron absorption.
At the same time, I do agree controlling your levels of inflammation is definitely supportive of reducing risk of blood clots. Have you considered taking a probiotic? Seeking Health carries a wonderful probiotic called Probiota 12: http://healthygoods.com/probiota-12-maximum-support-50-billion-cfus-twelve-species-probiotic-60-vegetarian-capsules-seeking-health.html
More than 70% of your immunity is in your gut, so building your good bacteria is important. If you do take probiotics, always take in the evening after dinner and take 2 capsules per day. If you can, keep the probiotics refrigerated with the lid tightly closed. Avoid handling capsules with your bare hands; it’s best to pour the capsules into the cap of the bottle.
