MedicalConspiracies- Long Term Side Effects Warfarin? ,3 Dangerous Warfarin Side Effects Long Term

Long Term Side Effects Warfarin? 
3 Dangerous Warfarin Side Effects Long Term

Here's 2 dangerous warfarin side effects long term, and how to avoid them!

The serious long term effects of warfarin depend partly on your age.  Here's what researchers have found to be the long term side effects of warfarin:

  • Bleeding strokes, or brain strokes. (hemorrhage strokes)
  • Calcium build-up in the arteries and narrowing of the aortic valve that goes from the heart and carries oxygen to the body. (aortic valve stenosis)
  • Alzheimers and dementia are higher in users of Coumadin long term. Especially if warfarin is used as an AFIB treatment.

People usually understand that taking warfarin can cause bleeding. But they don't realize that brain bleeding strokes are among warfarin side effects! And, unfortunately, the risk of getting one of these bleeding strokes increases dramatically as you get older.

Because warfarin is used to prevent strokes due to clotting, the other side of the coin -- the danger of internal bleeding -- is increased instead!  Why?

Because warfarin suppresses your body's normal ability to clot wounds and small liaisons, e.g. in the blood vessels, so that bleeding stokes are much more likely to happen.

So, be aware that there is a high rate of death and disability for brain strokes caused by warfarin -- and these are offically known as "warfarin-induced intracranial hemorrhages." 

2 Most Dangerous Warfarin Side Effects:

First of all, you'll want to know the stats, but the bottom line is basically that:

If you want to avoid the long term side effects warfarin causes, you'll want to use safer, natural supplements and diet to decrease your need for this medication.

Here's the research:

The Stats on Warfarin Side Effects

University of Cincinnati researchers published a study in the medical journal Neurology, saying that:

  • There has been a skyrocketing number of strokes due to bleeding in the brain in the US.

The majority of this change can be explained by increasing warfarin use, according to researchers headed by Matthew Flaherty, a UC neurologist.

Yes, warfarin helps to prevent stokes due to blood clots, especially for people with heart irregularities, or AFIB, but appears that this is not the end of the story.

  • The number of brain strokes jumped five-fold in the 11 years between 1988 and 1999, when the use of warfarin quadrupled in the USA.

But it gets worse:

  • For people who were over the age of 80, this rate for getting a brain stroke increased to an astounding eighteen-fold increase!

And also, these people were more likely to die with this type of stroke if they were on warfarin, as the side effects of warfarin.

The researchers found that bleeding into the brain while taking warfarin was more likely to result in death that for people with a similar bleeding stroke who were NOT taking warfarin.

Warfarin Side Effects: Hardened Arteries

Which warfarin long term side effects will your doctor not likely know about?

  • German researchers found out in 2005 that long term use of Coumadin produced increased calcium in the aortic valve and coronary arteries when compared to patients not taking Coumadin.

"Hardening of the arteries" is therefore one of main Coumadin side effects, and this is more dangerous than other known "risk factors."

Dangerous Warfarin Side Effects, WHAT IS THE PROBLEM?

"Every patient on Coumadin is increasing the calcium content of all vascular tissues.

The calcium content of arteries is now proven to be more dangerous than diabetes, elevated cholesterol or hypertension -- we must now try to educate patients," says Dr. Garry Gordon, who wrote "The Omega - Miracle."

Fortunately, there is help.

The new kid on the block, Vitamin K2, say researchers, plays an important role in PREVENTING calcium from building up in the arteries and even dissolving plaques!

(Not to be confused with vitamin K, the "clotting" vitamin, which has to do with warfarin, vitamin K2 is in charge of getting calcium into your bones rather than your arteries!) 

New research is showing vitamin K2 to be one of the most important nutrients against heart disease. Why?

  • Vitamin K2 helps regulate whether dietary calcium ends up in your bones rather than getting deposited in your arteries!

How to Avoid Warfarin Side Effects Long Term?

If you are taking the blood thinner medication Coumadin, you need careful monitoring. If your INR is 3 or over you are at very high risk for getting bleeding stroke that is fatal.

The researchers who sounded the alarm about the increase of bleeding stokes due to warfarin side effects, found that the danger was less for people with an INR of less than three.

An INR between 2 and 3 was safer.

They suggested that anyone with an INR of more than 3 get monitored very carefully, because at 3 your blood takes a long time to clot.

INR, or international normalized ratio measures how quickly your blood clots. Normal clotting without warfarin is 1, so that at 3 your blood clots much more slowly -- the higher the INR the longer it takes for your blood to clot.

You will want to know the signs of a mini stroke, and be prepared to go to the emergency.

Discovery of Coumadin Alternatives

How do you weigh the benefits and the dangers of warfarin?

  • Strokes due to bleeding in the brain are now the leading cause of death for strokes world wide, so by comparison, there are fewer fatal strokes caused by blood clots.

In total, bleeding stokes are more dangerous!

You may want to explore a Coumadin substitute rather than risking the dangerous side effects of warfarin. Why?

Warfarin has been used since the 1950's and 60's before the FDA required rigorous testing.

Since then, there have been discoveries of safe Coumadin alternatives that can stop heart disease. But because these are "natural" discoveries that are not being pushed by big drug companies, you may not have heard of them. For instance:

  • US scientists won the Nobel Prize for how the body NATURALLY can improves circulation and dissolves existing blood clots.

They found a Coumadin alternative based on improving circulation, healing blood vessels and DISSOLVING existing blood clots -- NOT on blocking vitamin K to prevent clotting -- like warfarin does.

This natural discovery works differently than warfarin, so you would no longer need a restrictive a warfarin diet -- a warfarin vitamin k diet, or a proper diet for taking coumadin.

Meet Dr Harry Elwardt, who worked with the Nobel Prize winning doctor to develop this formula against heart disease:
