I used to take ibuprofen like candies.
I used to suffer from chronic headaches. At 25, my frequent headaches got so serious that they actually turned into one big headache. I had a headache every second, every minute of my life for 4 and half years (all joking aside).
I took ibuprofen for my headaches couple of times a day, quite often exceeding the recommended amount. Every time I took it, I was hoping for some miracle to happen since it wasn’t easing my pain at all.
No one ever told me that ibuprofen and other OTC pain-killers can harm my health. Most of my team players took ibuprofen on a regular basis for all kinds of pains and injuries. My mother took it for her back pain. Every doctor and website suggested it, so I believed it was the right thing to do. I even thought that it didn’t help me because of my fault.
Apparently, ibuprofen is harmful to your health, and you can replace it with so much better NATURAL inflammation and pain alternatives.
Ibuprofen is toxic to the heart in the same way as the banned Vioxx, according the Lancet review.
I want to tell you that you can live a pain-free life without ibuprofen or similar OTC drug, just like me for almost 3 years.
One of my secrets against silent and visible inflammation is Turmeric.
This spice was used as a natural pain reliever for centuries and it has more than 600 health benefits without any side effects.
The clinical trial published in the Alternative and Complementary Medicine journal, stated that in case of osteoarthritis, turmeric is an effective alternative to ibuprofen.
The study involved 109 patients with knee osteoarthritis, some of which were given 2000 mg of turmeric, while others received 800 mg of ibuprofen a day in a period of six weeks. The participants’ pain level while stair climbing, performing some basic functions, and walking were measured.
After this period of 6 weeks, the turmeric group had greater improvements and greater satisfaction level than the ibuprofen group.
Not only that turmeric is natural, effective, and safe, but it’s also affordable to all, accessible and time-tested.
The next time you have a headache don’t search for ibuprofen, but choose turmeric as your natural choice of medicine.
