A website which lists some of these is http://www.
Med.Umich.Edu/1libr/aha/umherb04.Htm keep in mind however, that anticoagulant therapy must be monitored very carefully and should not be done without medical supervision. Also keep in mind that if it is being done during pregnancy, the medication or herb must be proven safe for the fetus. Just because it's 'natural' doesn't make it safe.
