Lithium is best known for its role in treating bipolar disorder, but there are other health benefits to this mineral that are frequently overlooked. Lithium is found in all living organisms. Grains, vegetables, and drinking water (depending upon the area one lives in) are all good sources. Its name comes from the Greek word lithos, meaning stone.
Although it had not been previously considered essential to health, some experts propose taking 1,000 micrograms of lithium daily, according to the current evidence. An experimental study involving rats found that lithium reduced ischemia-reperfusion injury (the damage that occurs when blood returns to tissues that had been deprived of oxygen), a finding that could have implications for humans. The chloride salt of this trace element also shows promise for the treatment of osteoarthritis. However, its most significant benefit could be something even more impressive — extending life.
In the August 2011 issue of the European Journal of Nutrition, researchers found an association between higher lithium levels in drinking water and a lower rate of death in Japan. As well as possibly making life longer, lithium could make life more…livable. Another Japanese study found an association between higher lithium water levels and a reduction in the suicide rate of females. A similar association was revealed in a study conducted in Greece and published in 2013. The Greek researchers found that lithium may also have therapeutic benefits in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), more commonly known as Lou Gehrig’s disease.
Lithium at lower doses seems to have a beneficial effect on human behavior. Higher lithium drinking water levels have been associated with a decrease in the rates of homicide, rape, robbery, burglary, and even drug abuse. Low dose lithium is actually available as a stand-alone supplement or in trace mineral formulations. [Source]
Do you know anyone who is taking a blood-thinning drug? (Warfarin, rivaroxiban (Xarelto), and apixaban (Eliquis) are three of the best-known blood thinners.) Maybe you yourself are taking one of these. Thinning the blood can have a very beneficial effect for people who have had heart problems or whose blood seems to clot too easily.
The issue here is (1) blood thinners like warfarin have to be very closely monitored to be sure they do not thin the blood too much, and (2) the heavily advertised blood thinners like Xarelto and Eliquis are very expensive and they are chemical DRUGS. (Next time you sit down to watch TV, keep a log of all the pharmaceutical ads during your TV time. You’ll be amazed and dismayed by how hard the drug makers are working to take your money.)
Drugless healing is the ONLY path to real healing.
Big Pharma’s “bottle of lies” and the imminent health threat conventional doctors almost never discuss with their patients.
Why would they? America’s “sick care” system is bankrolling their early retirement. It’s a downright terrifying fact – according to the Centers for Disease Control, more than HALF of all Americans live with at least one chronic disease.
That’s more than 160 million people suffering! And we’re not just growing sicker in spite of mainstream medicine’s “help”… “Medical error” is the third leading cause of death in the U.S. If you’re sick, mainstream medicine is more likely to KILL you than to CURE you. (It’s mind-boggling…Americans spend $3.5 trillion on health care every year, and many of us DIE from that “care.”) Medical care consumes almost 20% of our ENTIRE economy, and its goal is not to make us healthier but to sell more drugs.
Clearly, Big Pharma’s conveyor belt of prescription pills is NOT the answer. [Source]
If you need a blood-thinner, try pomegranate, a fruit with natural blood-thinning qualities. You can get this fruit in the form of juice, or you can get it in the form of extract (the whole fruit). Either way, you will be healthier, you will save money, and your body will thank you. (Where to get pomegranate? We suggest HERE or HERE. For more information on lithium, start HERE.)
Here’s the bottom line: We MUST begin to take matters into our own hands when it comes to our health. To do nothing but ask for another prescription (always be sure to read all the fine print containing the side effects) from your doctor is not the best way to get healthy, but it’s a great way to get poorer.
