Avoid the Dangers of Ibuprofen, Acetaminophen and Aspirin side effects

October 16, 2017

I use the Muscadine products accompanied by the 90 4 life/mineral paks and unprocessed sea salt, with enough water of course 🙂 to avoid ALL of the below!  Others can too with OUR helping to educate those who are willing :-).   Let me know any way I can help, I’m still only a phone call/text/email away!  Let’s talk soon, Joe

Pain and Inflammation are common complaints in our society. Turning to drugs can give temporary relief traded for possible permanent damage. Drugs, both over the counter and prescription can slow the healing process, and worsen the situation. While ibuprofen reduces some of a the symptoms, it also blocks healthy production of other substances which protect the gut lining (leading to ulceration & gastrointestinal complaints). Ibuprofen also destroys cartilage in the long run, defeating the purpose. The new line of Cox-2 inhibitors drugs, or the”new ibuprofen”, claimed to have less side effects than ibuprofen, with “less” being the operative word, as evidence of gastrointestinal complaints with these new drugs is pouring in. The bottom line is that drugs relieve symptoms, at the precious cost of side effects, and in the case of ibuprofen, worsening the scenario. Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) inhibit the synthesis of cartilage building blocks. Fortunately, there are many natural substances that have powerful anti-inflammatory effects, and some of these nutrients even address the cause, or etiology of the condition.

An important side effect of aspirin and other NSAIDs is that it will inhibit cartilage repair and accelerate the destruction of cartilage (J Rheumatol 1982;9:3-5). This is important to note since aspirin is one of the most commonly prescribed drugs for osteoarthritis, caused by the degeneration of cartilage. NSAIDs may help in the suppression of the symptoms of osteoarthritis, but in the long run they may possibly make the condition worse by preventing the formation of new cartilage and increasing the rate of cartilage destruction. Although NSAIDs are known to relieve joint pain in arthritis, their effect on the long-term degeneration of cartilage tissue is questioned, and they increase the probability of intestinal permeability (“leaky gut”) problems. Adverse effects on aspirin are mainly seen with ulceration of the intestinal lining. Adverse effects of ibuprofen are mainly seen with dysfunction of the kidneys.
