How many people have you met, that have an Aspirin deficiency? Yet people are taking Aspirin every day, with its negative side-effects. Some use Aspirin as a blood thinner and others as a painkiller. Yet nature has provided us with substances that can thin the blood and kill pain and bring with them a whole host of positive side-effects.
Aspirin – many older people are on a long term low-dose aspirin, taking it everyday for many years.
“Many Adverse Drug Reactions (ADRs) are caused not by the drug directly but by drug-induced nutritional deficiencies. One glaring example of this concerns aspirin. Marketed and prescribed for daily use to prevent heart attack, aspirin depletes the body of the life-saving nutrient folic acid, as well as iron, potassium, sodium, vitamin C, and more. The very nutrients needed to protect the circulatory system. Symptoms of folic acid depletion include anemia, birth defects, elevated homocysteine (a risk factor for heart disease), headache, fatigue, hair loss, insomnia, diarrhea, and increased infection. This warning should not be taken lightly. Studies show that the side-effects of aspirin are so severe they can increase the risk of death in people who take it regularly”.- Jon Herring
