Natural Blood Thinners, Such As, Glutathione!
Why do people even need natural blood thinners or any blood thinners in the first place?
It is usually years of bad eating, disease, weakened immune system, toxic body, etc. has led to thickened blood, clogged arteries, and blood that clogs too easily.
(For example, many believe that by eating unsaturated fats instead of saturated fats, they are eating healthy. Nothing can be further from the truth. Just because a lie is believed by so many people does not make it a truth. What you don't know about fats!)
Blood thinners are prescribed for a variety of medical conditions, including venous thrombosis (blood clots in the veins), pulmonary embolism (blood clots in the lungs), atrial fibrillation (an irregularity in heartbeat) and to prevent heart attacks or strokes.
Blood thinners are used to "thin" the blood that has thickened and/or clots easily.
The blood is thickened because it is very unhealthy and inflammated with arterial plaque, mucus, yeast, BAD cholesterol, and other substances that do not belong in the blood.
On top of inflammated "thicker" blood, there are inflammed and clogged arteries. The blood vessels (walls of the arteries) are clogged with arterial plaque and other substances.
The inflammed, clogged arteries slow down the blood flow. This puts pressure on the heart because the heart has to work harder to help the blood flow through the obstructed arteries.
Doctors then prescribe blood thinners such as Coumadin, Plavix, aspirin, even baby aspirin. Unfortunately, like so often in western mainstream medicine, the symptoms are treated but NOT the root cause!
Blood thinners are simply thinning the blood so it can travel through a constricted artery easier instead of UNCLOGGING the arteries so blood can flow easily and the stress on the heart is eliminated.
In the case of blood that clots easier, blood thinners are thinning the blood instead of cleaning and detoxifying the unhealthy blood.
Warfarin (such as Coumadin)
Did you know that Warfarin is a common rat poison? Warfarin, commonly known as Coumadin, is often prescribed to thin blood and to decrease the blood clots.
Warfarin (or Coumadin) will not dissolve clots that already have formed, but is used to help prevent the clots from becoming larger.
However, it does not really thin the blood but degrades the blood. This causes abnormal blood compounds and long term use can lead to fatal or nonfatal hemorrhage from any bodily organ or tissue.
Hemorrhagic complications may present as difficulty breathing or swallowing, weakness, paralysis, headache, chest, abdomen, joint, muscle, or other pain, shortness of breath, hypo tension, unexplained shock, dizziness, paresthesia, or unexplained swelling (usually in face, throat, mouth, hands, feet, or legs).
Some more possible side effects of Coumadin or Warfarin are fatigue, feeling cold, food tastes different, black stool or bleeding from rectum, diarrhea, gas, hair loss, hives, rashes, itchiness, easily bruise, pale skin, nausea/vomiting, fever, numbness/tingling, and difficulty moving.
For men, Coumadin or Warfarin can lead to painful erections that can last for four hours or even longer.
Although rare, Warfarin (Coumadin) has led to necrosis (skin tissue death) which has led to gangrene and even amputation.
Good grief! Even the mild side effects are bad. (But then again, it is rat poison.)
Oftentimes, these side effects lead to more prescribed medication which leads to more side effects and on and on we go.
What's the point if the good health and high quality of life we are trying to achieve is sacrificed in the process?
It it wise to look into natural blood thinners, that support the body and lead to improved health in the short and long term!
Aspirin is a unique NSAID (Non steroidal Anti-inflammatory Drug)
Many people believe that a little bit of aspirin is fine to take everyday. Heck, some even take BABY aspirin. Baby aspirin should be good to take everyday to prevent a heart attack or stroke, right? WRONG! The truth is that aspirin should never enter your body. There are side effects and yes, even baby aspirin has long term side effects.
Aspirin, even in low doses and in whatever formulation, can cause bleeding of the stomach lining, can lead to peptic ulcers, can cause gastric irritation or/and gastric bleeding, can lead to macular degeneration, hearing problems (ringing in ears or even hearing loss), disturbs the production of hormones that can lead to hormonal imbalance.
Aspirin disrupts protein synthesis, can cause fragile blood vessels that leads to internal bleeding from broken blood vessels--This means that the very thing you are taking (aspirin) to prevent strokes (caused by clots) may actually help cause strokes or heart attacks!
Aspirin actually increases your chance of hemorrhagic stroke by almost 50%.
Furthermore, even though aspirin is considered a blood thinner, what it actually does is reduce inflammation found in the blood, particularly 'C Reactive Protein'.
When the inflammation is the blood is reduced, blood flow is improved throughout the body, which helps prevent a heart attack or stroke. So doctors prescribe aspirin to prevent heart attacks and strokes and after one has had a stroke or heart attack, but as we learned above, aspirin may actually help cause strokes or heart attacks!
For our health's sake, why not look into natural anti-inflammatory substances and natural anti-coagulants? In other words, why not look into natural blood thinners?
Safe and Natural Blood Thinners:
Yes, even though glutathione is not known as a "blood thinner" glutathione is one of the best natural blood thinners for the following reasons:
Glutathione is a powerful anti-inflammatory that reduces inflammation in the blood WITHOUT any side effects now or long term. (In other words, it does what aspirin does WITHOUT the negative side effects.)
Glutathione also cleans and detoxifies blood cells which leads to cleaner and healthier blood, thus Naturally thin blood!
Glutathione also helps strengthen the arteries and break down arterial plaque.
Glutathione shields against abnormal blood clots.
Glutathione can reverse the build-up of plaque and lesson the tendency for thick blood/easily clotting blood.
Turmeric-derived curcumin is also one of the natural blood thinners as it is known to have powerful anti-coagulant properties. This is due to its ability to inhibit platelet aggregration and the formation of fibrinogen. (Fibrinogen is a plasma protein that plays a key final role in the cascade that results in blood clotting.)
