Alternatives to Coumadin and Xarelto

I am searching for natural alternatives to Coumadin and Xarelto.

My concern with Coumadin is that it works–it interferes so effectively with the clotting process that you will have a difficult time clotting when you start bleeding.  This includes head injury which, if permitted to continue bleeding, would cause excessive pressure on the brain and possible death.

A lot of people who are placed on anti-clotting medications are elderly and have poor balance, increasing the likelihood of falling and hitting their head.  The alternative medicine community is shifting to Nattokinase for this purpose.  It interferes with the conversion of fibrinogen to fibrin, another way of interfering with clotting, but not so effectively that you run the same risk of the body not being able to stop the bleeding if it needs to do so.
