(NaturalHealth365) Yet another highly marketed blood thinner medication, Xarelto, has been making headlines for its life-threatening side effects. In fact, Xarelto may be one of the most dangerous blood thinners to date – as there is no antidote for the internal bleeding it can cause individuals who take it.
To make matter worse, the maker of Xarelto is under intense legal scrutiny for failure to warn the public about the risks including its serious potential for causing critical health issues. These problems have led multiple victims and their families to a Xarelto lawsuit, with many more expected to come.
What you don’t know about Xarelto could be deadly
It is impossible to know exactly how many people have been victimized by the deadly side effects of Xarelto. However, a quick look at any Xarelto lawsuit will reveal serious and sometimes fatal problems, such as gastrointestinal bleeding and even cerebral hemorrhaging.
The maker of Xarelto marketed the drug as ‘safe and effective,’ despite data that showed people who took the drug had higher rates of blood transfusions and gastrointestinal bleeding than those taking other blood thinner medications like Warfarin. And, if you’re feeling the sensation of déjà vu, you’re not alone. This is exactly how the pharmaceutical industry responds to vaccine dangers or any other drug produced.
Big pharma wants us to believe that everything is ‘alright’, as if nothing could go wrong with these toxic substances.
Many people question the reasoning of Western medicine and the decision of physicians to wait until a person is at risk of heart disease or stroke to begin treating the condition. Prescribing dangerous drugs to manage the problem is like robbing Peter to pay Paul – someone always gets hurt. Instead of using hazardous blood thinner medication as the primary method of clot prevention, patients should instead be made aware of the many natural and non-toxic ways of thinning the blood.
How to effectively improve blood circulation – without toxic side effects
Fortunately, there are many natural ways to thin the blood without exposing oneself to the toxic effects of prescription blood thinner medications. In fact, many solutions can be found in the foods we eat.
For example, researchers at Kansas State University found that garlic contains a powerful compound called ajoene, which has been found to help prevent blood platelets from forming clots. A person can easily enjoy the benefits of the ajoene compound by simply consuming a clove of raw or lightly cooked garlic daily. Garlic tea is also beneficial.
Other foods with anti-clotting properties include turmeric and ginger. Both are widely used in cooking and help prevent clots from building along the walls of the arteries. In addition, ginger has been found to help lower cholesterol – an advantage that is often highly beneficial for people taking blood thinners who are at risk for heart attack. Another less common but effective strategy, you may want to add to your daily routine, is eating a few pieces of daikon (a mild-flavored white radish) – known for its ability to dissolve accumulated fat in the body.
Don’t forget the importance of hydration for optimal health
Of course, nature’s most powerful blood thinner medication is pure (clean) H2O. Water has absolutely no side effects and can be consumed in large quantities daily.
It works by preventing dehydration, which can lead to blood thickening. Researchers at Loma Linda University studied men who drank water, finding that those who drank at least 40 ounces of water throughout each day cut their risk for forming clots and suffering stroke by more than half. Ideally, the average person should drink 0.5 ounces of water for every pound they weigh daily.
Allow me to say the obvious, government-run health agencies and concerned politicians should not wait until there is another Xarelto lawsuit or new dangerous blood thinner on the market to stop herding the unsuspecting public into the pockets of the pharmaceutical industry. Patients (people) deserve to know what is going into their bodies and the potential for serious harm associated with blood thinners like Xarelto.
