2 doctors agree

In brief: Leech therapy

There is a paucity of controlled scientific evidence of this form of therapy.
If you have thromboembolic disease, i would be most careful about this decision.

You have to consider the risk/benefit ratio of treatments. Stopping coumadin without a medical advice is not a good idea
