Since people aren’t supposed to die off like rats, there are tests used to identify how fast or slow the blood clots. The test used is called a pro-time or INR (international normalized ratio). If this number drops too low, blood clots quicker and there’s greater potential of dangerous clot formation. If too high, the potential of bleeding to death can be an even greater threat.
So why use these anti-clot drugs in the first place? Problems including DVT’s (deep vein thrombosis), heart valve problems, and heart rhythm problems present an increased potential of setting up unnatural or heightened clot formation. In cases like these, clots can form, and have the potential of traveling to various locations in the body, blocking blood flow to critical tissues, eventually setting the stage for tissue death. If in the brain, a stroke, in the heart, a heart attack.
Since the potential of serious to fatal sequela is eminent from blood clots, these anti-clotting drugs are commonly employed, and quite successful in avoiding death. The down side of these drugs can be a real problem. To avoid using these drugs, the underlying threats must be removed.
In the case of atrial fibrillation where there’s uneven flow through heart valves, correction of heart action is what’s required. In using an anti-clot drug, you’ve not addressed the core cause, and the use of this drug will be for life. Correcting heart irregularities requires identifying the missing elements that help to regulate function. The heart is a muscle and requires all the nutrition that muscles require. It is controlled by electrolyte levels and nerve function. Identifying the missing link isn’t all that difficult.
With the case of thick sticky blood, consider the primary cause first. Dehydration is very common today with increased diuretics and inadequate water consumption. The greatest cause of sticky blood is directly related to one of the fastest growing diseases today, and that is diabetes. Elevated sugars in the blood creates increased stickiness, and can precipitate greater levels of blood clotting.
Poor circulation due to vascular inflammation sets up greater potential for DVT’s. Excessive sugar in the diet contributes to this inflammation. Stress affecting the adrenal glands and nerves can create constriction of the vessels and restrict return circulation as well. Identifying vascular inflammation is something found on our cardiovascular panel, and is revealed through Endothelin as well as the Interleukins, tumor necrosis factor, C-Reactive Protein, and Homocysteine.
The normal clotting function of blood is interfered with when using these specialized drugs. Because of this, any weakness in the integrity of the lining of blood vessels will create the kind of ecchymosis seen in the picture above. Blood treated with these drugs will not clot normally and continue to fill the space around vessels and spread out under the skin.
When I see this happening on the skin, I have to ask myself, “what’s going on internally as well. Could there be a degree of bleeding into the brain?” Treating vessel wall integrity doesn’t impact the influence of the anti-clot medication in protecting the patient from stroke of heart attack. It could prevent a potential fatal aneurism though.
When looking at the structure of blood vessel walls, it’s important to realize that the integrity of the cell wall is highly dependent on natural vitamin E. This is one element which has been greatly destroyed in the grain milling industry. We are a nation that depends heavily on grains for nutrition, but the grains and products from grains available to the masses have had this critical element removed.
Vitamin E is found in the germ of the wheat kernel. Modern milling practices removes both the germ and bran from the grain to give it shelf life without going rancid. These grains can sit for years without going ‘bad’. These grains are so useless that even the bugs are smart enough to leave them alone. In cases like this, I rely heavily on Cataplex E, Wheat Germ Oil, and Cyruta plus provided by Standard Process to repair, strengthen, and reduce inflammation on vessel walls.
