Anticoagulants are the drug of choice, prescribed by doctors, to reduce blood clotting in arteries, veins and the heart. Blood clots are a major health concern since they can block blood flow to the heart and brain. Even a minor blood clot can result in a heart attack or stroke. If you search ‘anticoagulants’ on the internet, one of the most popular search results remains ‘anticoagulants side effects,’ and with good reason.
Common prescription anticoagulants include warfarin and heparin.
Anticoagulants are most often prescribed when blood clots too quickly. This can cause blood clots to form in the wrong places to greatly increase the risk of serious medical conditions, like stroke, heart attack, transient ischemic attack, deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism.
Taking anticoagulants is a serious matter. You must follow your doctor’s instructions carefully and inform any other doctor or dentist that you are on medication. You must ask your doctor before taking any other type of medicine, including sleeping pills, antibiotics, cold medicine and vitamins. Even a simple vitamin can make an anticoagulant stronger or weaker, which can prove incredibly dangerous.
ANTICOAGULANT SIDE EFFECTS
Anticoagulants can be used to reduce the risk of blood clots, but they can also wreak havoc on your health. Your doctor may caution you of early warning signs of a larger problem, such as:
- Red or dark brown urine
- Red, dark brown, or black stools
- Abnormal bleeding before a menstrual period
- Bleeding gums
- Headache or stomach pain that won’t go away
- Dizzines or fainting
- Fatigue or weakness
When taking an anticoagulant, you must be even more vigilant about your health. The medication cannot be taken while pregnant, so it is important to alert your doctor if there is a possibility you may be pregnant. You must also contact your doctor if you have any kind of accident or notice abnormal bruising or blood blisters. Minor anticoagulant complications can progress into more serious side effects.
You may cough up blood, have difficulty breathing, or experience chest pain. Since anticoagulants thin the blood, a typical nosebleed may last much longer than 10 minutes. The drug warfarin can cause rashes, diarrhoea, nausea and vomiting. Heparin in drug form may cause hair loss and an abnormal drop in blood platelets, which can trigger bleeding in vital areas. Such aggressive drugs continue to affect health and may not be sustainable over the long term.
Blood clotting is a condition that must be taken seriously, but there is hope. A full rehabilitation plan with an anti-inflammatory diet and exercise programme can restore circulatory health. In many cases, you can reduce the amount of anticoagulant medication you take. In some cases, full recovery may eliminate the use of medication altogether.
GET THE ALL CLEAR
Diet and exercise are the first steps to achieve circulatory health:
- An anti-inflammatory diet rich in really healthy foods will help to eliminate inflammatory triggers and improve circulation.
- It is important to cut out all starchy carbohydrates, processed foods, high sugar foods and dairy products.
- Enjoy vegetables, dark-skinned fruits, avocados, beans, nuts, seeds, wild fish, grass-fed meat, couscous, quinoa, buckwheat and healthy oils liberally.
Exercise every day will keep the circulatory system pumping strong:
- Gentle rebounding for 30 minutes, brisk wall<ing for three miles and low weight training are recommended.
- If circulatory issues keep you from physical activity, start out slow. You can begin by lying on your back on the couch and cycling your legs in the air
- Small steps forward can improve circulation and ease the burden on the heart and lungs.
As an alternative to toxic medication, natural enzymes can boost circulatory health. In what has been called ‘the world’s most powerful enzyme formula’, Serrapeptase, Nattokinase, digestive enzymes, antioxidants, and proanthocyanidins work in harmony. These enzymes can improve arterial and cardiovascular function, regulate blood pressure and the circulatory system, and support digestive, lung, eye and brain health.
Natural support for circulation can transform your circulatory health. Prescription anticoagulants are only designed to control and manage the issue. They do not provide any hope of a long-term cure or relief. The risk for a more serious medical complication, including a heart attack or stroke, remains if anticoagulants are not taken under strict doctor’s orders. Even physicians call anticoagulants ‘aggressive drugs’.
Powerful enzymes can calm inflammation, support detoxification and improve blood flow. These enzymes work together to destroy and flush damaged tissue from the body. Blood flow and circulation will improve once unhealthy fibrin in arteries and veins has been removed naturally. As a by-product, arterial walls will strengthen, and blood detoxification will take place.
Anti-inflammatory circulation is especially beneficial for those with blood clotting risk and can be helpful for any older adult. Circulation often slows with age, especially without regular exercise. An enzyme like Serrapeptase can support a natural, healthy ageing process by removing fibrin build-up. Serrapeptase will ease the burden on the circulatory system caused by thickened blood and a weakened immune system — triggered by inflammation.
Your circulatory health can get better with age. When you stop eating inflammatory foods, your health will simply improve. As you begin to exercise daily, healthy circulation is a natural result. With the use of anti-inflammatory enzymes, you can clear inflammation, boost immunity and allow the body to heal itself naturally. Strengthening circulation may allow you to reduce the use of harmful anticoagulants and minimise their side effects.
