Virtually every home medicine cabinet in America has a bottle of pain-relieving pills that could kill even when properly used. Millions of Americans live with chronic pain and rely upon over-the-counter pain relievers to alleviate discomfort mostly caused by joint, nerve or headache pain. Some people see no difference between pain pills and M&Ms. To the shock of most Americans, they have been relying on unsafe pain remedies and paying a steep price from the side effects associated with these drugs. There isn’t a safe over-the-counter (OTC) pain reliever available.
Though widely used, natural non-prescription pain relievers are not as well documented in the medical literature simply because public health authorities do not allocate sufficient funds for investigation. While not absolutely safe or effective (nothing, even water, is absolutely safe at any dose), they exhibit a far greater margin of safety and often superior effectiveness over pain relieving drugs. The public may be unfamiliar with some natural pain relievers and regard them with suspicion, but have no hesitation in taking potentially hazardous ibuprofen, acetaminophen or aspirin that sometimes produce mortal side effects. Now we know that hundreds of thousands of Americans are hospitalized and thousands of needless deaths occur annually even from the proper use of these drugs.
Fearful of letting go, many Americans cling to using pain relievers that can cause bleeding gastric ulcers, heart attacks and serious liver problems.
What about so-called natural pain relievers? One neurology professor prescribed a natural anti-inflammatory for 120 of his patients with chronic pain and nearly 7 in 10 were able to withdraw from use of prescription or non-prescription pain relievers altogether! Why are Americans living with the pain and the risk of serious side effects when so many natural remedies are at hand that are far safer and just as effective as common analgesics? It’s just that most Americans are unfamiliar with natural remedies and have suspicion they could pose problems. Now, with the revelation regular use of OTC pain relievers raises the risks for mortal side effects, it’s time to search for safer alternatives.
Think Twice About Aspirin
Do you take a daily aspirin tablet to prevent a heart attack? Most people who take daily aspirin pills are not likely to experience a reduced risk for heart attack and may even die from complications caused by this commonly used pill. Even a coated, baby aspirin tablet can be problematic, or worse, ineffective.
Taking plenty of antacids for heartburn?
Millions of American never connect their heartburn to taking aspirin.
What about acetaminophen
More than 70,000 cases of acetaminophen side effects are reported each year, and a few thousand result in the need for liver transplantation.
Rheumatoid patients suffer in agony and often try the wrong remedy
Rheumatoid arthritis patients comprise only 5 percent of arthritis sufferers, but they are the most vocal because they often can’t find effective pain relief. Prescription pain pills often inhibit the immune system and result in undesirable side effects. One of the most common misconceptions is that rheumatoid arthritis patients should take collagen-based supplements such as glucosamine, chondroitin, or hyaluronic acid. The immune system of rheumatoid arthritis patients attacks these molecules, which results in greater morning stiffness. They are not appropriate for rheumatoid arthritis.
Some say it’s better than morphine
This sugar-like molecule (polysaccharide) may be the most potent pain reliever in nature.
Made naturally in the body, but in declining amounts with advancing age, its production can be stimulated with dietary supplements. (No, it’s not glucosamine)
