Not the usual blog from me but as I’m all about self improvement and overall wellness, your physical health is just as important as your mental health. I came across this blog the other day and wanted to share it with you. Are you an Ibuprofen user and just happen to be over 40? You need to read this.You may be a candidate for heart disease.
I rarely take Ibuprofen for two reasons. 1) I am rarely in pain for anything and 2) when I get a headache it’s a migraine and Ibuprofen does absolutely nothing for me for those.
Are you an Ibuprofen user? Do you take them daily for pain? Perhaps it might be time to look into alternatives.
After reading this article, I will definitely stop taking Ibuprofen altogether and try to look for more natural remedies for any pain I may be in.
Doctors are urging people that are over the age of 40 to stop taking one of the most common pain relievers ever! This drug is Ibuprofen and here is why doctors everywhere are urging people to stop taking it.
Doctors are warning people that the risks of taking Ibuprofen might outweigh the benefits. Ibuprofen might temporarily lessen the pain of a headache, but is it worth heart disease? In 2005, the FDA issues a warning stating that Ibuprofen can significantly increase your chances of getting heart disease! They say that even with short term use, a persons heart attack and stroke risk increases significantly.
The FDA said: “This risk increases the longer one continues to use ibuprofen. You do not need to have an existing heart condition to be at risk, although such a condition does increase your chances. These risks make ibuprofen especially dangerous to individuals over 40 – the age at which one’s risk of heart disease begins to skyrocket.”
Ibuprofen can increase the chance of a heart attack by almost 20%. The health warning over the use of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) comes after analysis involving almost 10 million patients published in The British Medical Journal. NSAIDs are a drug class that groups together drugs that provide an analgesic and antipyretic effects. The chance of having a heart attack is a large price to pay for the relief of a headache. There are many natural ingredients out there that can help relieve pain just as well as the leading NSAID. Additionally, you get the benefits while skipping out on the harsh effects of these drugs.
My sincere hope is for you to please be careful with the drugs (medications/otc drugs) you take daily and look into natural remedies. Most pain and ailments can be treated with all natural herbs. Keep an open mind. Your body is your temple. Take care of it. Please.
