Why use blood thinners?

If you use NATURAL blood thinners, you will enjoy:

The main danger of blood thinning is if you are at high risk of bleeding, such as if you are about to have surgery, or if you have an ulcer in danger of bleeding. If you are pregnant, you can continue to use the natural blood thinners in moderate quantities as normal foods, though I would suggest stopping taking kombucha because of its small alcohol content.

Pharmaceutical blood thinners have serious side-effects

If you have a history of suffering from blood clotting problems (thick blood) or if you are at a high risk of developing blood clots or a stroke, a blood thinner is almost essential for your continued good health. Your doctor will probably prescribe a pharmaceutical blood thinner. However, pharmaceutical blood thinners are particularly prone to some very serious and nasty side-effects (see below).

The least dangerous pharmaceutical blood thinner is aspirin (acetylsalicylic acid). Aspirin's side effects include gastrointestinal ulcers, stomach bleeding and tinnitus, especially when it is taken in higher doses.

New research (1) shows that MOST emergency hospital visits in the USA by the elderly are caused by the side-effects and overdosing of commonly-used pharmaceutical blood thinners such as Warfarin (Coumadin, Jantoven, Marevan, Lawarin, Waran, and Warfant) and Clopidogrel (Plavix). These blood thinners are prescribed to prevent strokes and blood clots. Common side-effects from these drugs include:

There are many natural foods and herbs that possess powerful anti-inflammatory and blood thinning properties. Unfortunately, most doctors don't know about them, and the drug companies have no incentive to publicise this information. These natural remedies normally have no side-effects whatsoever.

Warning - don't take these natural remedies in combination with any pharmaceutical drugs. Get off the drugs and onto the natural remedies with the knowledge of your doctor and supervised by a well-trained herbalist or natural health practitioner.
