Let's talk about "Ibuprofen" . . .


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 . . .


Headache

Dizziness

Drowsiness

Fatigue

Restless sleep

Thirst and sweating

Tingling or numbness in hands and feet

Ringing in the ears

Blurred vision

Eye irritation

Fluid retention

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 . . .


Magnesium stearate

Titanium dioxide

And Talc


ENOUGH SAID!!!!


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)

Rosemary

Peppermint

Eucalyptus

Or Cloves


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"!!!
