·   Richard Hirschman, a board-certified embalmer, has been finding “strange clots” in the bodies of the deceased since the start of COVID-19 shots.

·   Hirschman describes and has photographed unnatural, fibrous clots that are filling vessels and veins. These make embalming difficult. His colleagues have had similar experiences.

·   Many of those affected were claimed to have died from a heart attack or stroke.

·   Since November 2021, Hirschman states that more than 50% of the bodies he embalms have these strange clots

·   If you have already had the jab, consider taking fibrinolytic enzymes. These digest the fibrin that leads to blood clots, strokes, and pulmonary embolisms.

Richard Hirschman, a board-certified embalmer and funeral director with more than 20 years of experience, has reported some disturbing findings. Since COVID-19 shots were started, since mid-2021, Hirschman has been finding “strange clots” in the bodies of the deceased.

In a worldwide exclusive interview on the Dr. Jane Ruby Show, Hirschman describes unusual fibrous clots that block blood vessels. These are long and rubbery and make embalming difficult. Ordinary blood found in the deceased is thin and falls apart when handled. Hirschman says that he has seen a handful of clots running nearly the length of the leg.

Here is part of one of these long clots:

3Hirschman goes on, “When I do embalming, I have to go into the vein and allow the blood to drain. So I have to pull out these long, white, fibrous clots prior to embalming,”

The beginning of the clot, which resembles a white, rubbery worm, appears red and like a normal clot. But the majority of the clot is composed of an unusual white, fibrous material.  He adds, 5

Typically, a blood clot is smooth; it’s blood that has coagulated together. But when you squeeze it, touch it, or try to pick it up, it generally falls apart … you can almost squeeze it between your fingers and get it back to blood again. But this white fibrous stuff is pretty strong. It’s not weak at all. You can manipulate it, it’s very pliable. It’s not hard … it is not normal. I don’t know how anybody can live with something like this inside of them.”

This deceased person had the vax and boosters but contracted COVID-19 anyway. They were released from a hospital after testing negative for SARS-CoV-2 but died a few days later. Hirschman thought that it was probably because he was full of blood clots.

The family members said that the man was released from the hospital despite his shortness of breath.

Another unusual aspect of the clots is that they’re being found in both veins and arteries. Typically, clots aren’t found in arteries unless a person has been dead for several days, which wasn’t the case when Hirschman found them.

 ‘It Looks Like Heartworms for People’

Hirschman and a colleague have pulled numerous fibrous strings from the bodies of people who have had the shot. They say they resemble worms. But these are not worms or parasites. A physician, Dr. Robert Jay Rowen, said:8

I watched this video and it is frightening. This undertaker could not withdraw blood from leg veins to inject formaldehyde to preserve the body. When he opened the body further, he found unnatural dense, white, stringy material. These are being reported starting at the time COVID vaccines were used.

Hirschman said that January 2021 was the busiest he’s been in his career, and this coincided with the rollout of COVID-19 shots. He’s currently seeing the fibrous material in over half of his bodies.

This trend appears to be on the rise:9

Hirschman goes on:

If this is caused by the vaccine, which my gut is telling me it is — I can’t prove that — if it is caused by the vaccine, imagine the number of people that will be dying in the future, because people can’t live with this kind of substance floating around in their vessels.

It’s amazing how many people are dying of heart attack and stroke lately. If one of these small, fibrous tissues gets up into the brain, it will cause a stroke. If it gets into the heart, it could cause a heart attack.”

One individual in his 50s died of a heart attack and had white, fibrous clots. His wallet was on him, and as Hirschman checked for personal effects, he noticed the man’s COVID-19 vaccine card there.

Rowen said that Hirschman has been super busy embalming since the vaccines have been given and that he never saw this before 2020 in 20 years. He does not know about all the vaccine status of his clients. In the past few months, the rate of these ropy clots has increased from 50% to 80% of the bodies.”10

In the last month, Hirschman said, out of 35 people he embalmed, 24 had the clots. He’s hesitant to reveal the findings to family members, as he doesn’t want to start a panic. However, if the composition of the fibrous material can be uncovered, he’s hopeful that something could be done to save people’s lives.

The Shots Double the Risk of Heart Attacks and Other Heart Problems

Blood clots continue to be reported as adverse reactions to COVID-19 shots.11 In one example, 17-year-old Everest Romney received his first dose of the Pfizer shot and experienced extreme swelling in his arm and neck that night.12 Two days later, the previously healthy athlete was unable to lift his head due to the pain and swelling. A pediatrician dismissed the concerns, blaming them on a sports injury.

His mother insisted on a CT scan, which revealed a blood clot inside his jugular vein on the same side he got the shot. Blood clots in his brain were also seen. He ended up in the ICU, where doctors still refused to acknowledge that the clots could be linked to the shot.

A study published in the November 16, 2021, issue of the journal Circulation is also especially relevant to Hirschman’s story. The study concluded, “the mRNA vaccine dramatically increases inflammation on the endothelium and T cell infiltration of cardiac muscle and may account for the observations of increased thrombosis, cardiomyopathy, and other vascular events following vaccination.”

People who had been jabbed had a more than double risk of the acute coronary syndrome (ACS),

which includes not only heart attacks but also a range of other conditions involving abruptly reduced heart blood flow. The symptoms of ACS typically begin very suddenly and include:13

Chest pain/discomfort, often described as aching, pressure, tightness, or burning sensations

Pain that radiates from the chest to the shoulders, arms, upper abdomen, back, neck, and/or jaw

Nausea and/or vomiting


Shortness of breath

Sudden heavy sweating

Lightheadedness, dizziness, and/or fainting

Unusual or inexplicable fatigue

Patients who received two jabs more than doubled their five-year ACS risk, driving it from an average of 11% to 25%. In a November 21, 2021, tweet, cardiologist Dr. Aseem Malhotra wrote:14

Extraordinary, disturbing, upsetting. We now have evidence of a plausible biological mechanism of how mRNA vaccine may be contributing to increased cardiac events… We must take these findings very seriously.

Fibrinolytic Enzymes May Help

People who got the COVID-19 injection and have any shot-induced symptoms must be checked by experienced doctors. The Front Line COVID-19 Critical Care Working Group’s (FLCCC) I-RECOVER15 has a protocol for long-haul COVID syndrome that has been used to treat shot-induced symptoms with similar success. Their recommendations can be downloaded in full,16 and they give step-by-step instructions for treatment.

Dr. Mercola also advises the following:

1. Make certain you measure your vitamin D level and take enough vitamin D orally (typically about 8,000 units/day for most adults) and/or get sensible sun exposure to make sure your level is 60 to 80 ng/ml (150 to 2000 nmol/l).

2. Eliminate all vegetable (seed) oils from your diet, which involves eliminating nearly all processed foods and most meals in restaurants unless you can be sure the chef is only cooking with butter. Avoid restaurant sauces or salad dressings. They are loaded with seed oils.

Avoid chicken and pork, as they are rich in linoleic acid. This is the omega-6 fat that is universally overconsumed and that contributes to the oxidative stress that causes heart disease.

3. Consider taking around 500 milligrams a day of NAC, as it helps prevent blood clots and is a precursor for your body to produce the important antioxidant glutathione.

4. Hirschman recommended daily aspirin. Consider fibrinolytic enzymes instead, which digest the fibrin that leads to blood clots, strokes, and pulmonary embolisms. The dose is typically two, twice a day, and must be taken on an empty stomach, either an hour before or two hours after a meal. Otherwise, the enzymes will digest your food and not the fibrin in the blood clot.
