So what's the difference between "Tylenol" we spoke of yesterday . . . and "Ibuprofen"???
Well . . . "Tylenol" ONLY works in the "brain" . . . while "Ibuprofen" works in the brain and the "rest" of the body.
Meaning . . . "Tylenol" ONLY helps to reduce pain and fever . . . while "Ibuprofen" has the added benefit of reducing "inflammation" and "swelling" at the site of an injury.
But . . . the side effects of "Ibuprofen" would be . . .
Thirst and sweating
Tingling or numbness in hands and feet
Ringing in the ears
And swollen ankles
AND . . . as with "Tylenol" that's tough on our "liver" . . . "Ibuprofen" is hard on our "kidneys".
Okay . . . so let's take a look at what the "other ingredients" are in "Ibuprofen" . . .
And they would be . . . among others . . .
And if you're over 65 . . . it's recommended that we DON'T take "Ibuprofen" . . . due to it makes us more likely to get "stomach ulcers".
SO WHAT "CAN" WE TAKE FOR OUR "PAIN RELIEF"???
Well . . . my go-to "pain relievers are . . .
Smelling the aroma of "essential oil" like . . .
Lavender (my favorite)
And if you "ARE NOT" on a blood thinner medication . . . my go-to favorites are consuming a small amount of . . .
Ginger or Turmeric
So I'm sure you're now thinking . . . how does smelling scents get rid of pain???
Or taking an herb???
Well . . . believe it or not . . . "olfactory" (brain) stimulation related to "aromatherapy" . . . can "IMMEDIATELY" reduce "pain" and . . . change physiological parameters like pulse, blood pressure, skin temperature and . . . "brain activity".
So what about consuming a small amount of "ginger"???
Well . . . "ginger" contains "salicylates" . . . which the body transforms into a chemical substance called "salicylic acid" . . . and this "salicylic acid" can "EASE" pain and discomfort.
Whereas . . . "turmeric's" main active component is "curcumin" . . . and "curcumin" is a powerful "anti-inflammatory" that has the ability to reduce "pain".
So PLEASE . . . think twice about taking an over-the-counter "pain reliever" . . . and try something "NATURAL"!!!
