Anticoagulants Increase Your Risk of Stroke

Instead of preventing a stroke, blood thinners can actually cause a stroke! Add to this the multiple medications treating more than one health problem can be deadly. A recent (2018) research study was performed at the University College in London outlining the safety issue of anticoagulant drugs.

The aim of this study involving 7,000 patients was to determine whether or not anticoagulant medications did in fact prevent a stroke or caused more harm, especially in the presence of other medically problems such as irregular heartbeat (atrial fibrillation) or kidney disease.

Of the participants, half were on blood thinners while the remaining half was not. The study duration spanned approximately 17 months.

Results and Researchers Comments:

Patients on blood thinners were 2.6 times as likely to experience a stroke as those who were not on anticoagulants.

Patients taking anticoagulants were 2.4 times more likely to have a hemorrhage or other problems included bleeding in the brain.

The risk of stroke for some patients was more than doubled, putting them at risk for severe, life threatening medical episodes and medical emergencies.

Researchers Comments

“We found that in this particular group, their medication seems to do the opposite of its intended effect,” commented study author Shankar Kumar.

“As we found a paradoxical reduced mortality rate alongside increased rates of stroke and major bleeding, this is clearly a very complex area,” Kumar teams further observations, “we strongly call for randomized controlled studies to test the clinical value and safety of anticoagulant drug therapy for people with both atrial fibrillation and chronic kidney disease.”

Natural Approach

Specific dietary supplements like fish oil prevent the rouleaux cells from sticking together, hence lowering blood pressure and keeping the blood slippery. The biggest problem I hear from my patients is that they are told to stop taking fish oils. Omega 3 fatty acids are the number one element used and required MOST throughout the whole body! In light of this, it then only makes sense to lower the anticoagulant medication rather than take away our most crucial elements such as omega 3 fatty acids found in fish and nuts and seeds. However it is only in fish oil that prevents the blood from becoming sticky.

To learn more about special enzymes that are anti-clotting and thin the blood naturally – and much more about these all important fats, pick up my ‘Reverse Heart Disease Naturally’ book. In this book, you will find the best protocols/safe remedies for lowering blood pressure and thinning the blood naturally, all without the need of medication. No matter what the medication, nothing works as well as our own natural body systems.

As well, full reversal of arteriosclerosis is outlined in easy step-step by program.

Because North Americans are dying at a rate of one death every 40 seconds of heart related illnesses and disease – it is for these reasons, it was my second book to be published. My Reverse Gut Disease Naturally was first, simply because I have unusual success in this area of disease reversal and was asked to write it several years prior to doing so.
