A health Journalist and author recently announced that there are no safe over-the-counter (OTC) pain relievers. Virtually every home medicine cabinet in America has a bottle of pain-relieving pills that can cause serious problems, even when properly used. Millions of Americans live with chronic pain and rely upon over-the-counter pain relievers to alleviate discomfort mostly caused by joint, nerve or headache pain. To the shock of most Americans, they have been relying on unsafe pain remedies and paying a steep price from the side effects associated with these drugs. Many Americans are turning to natural pain remedies and may never return to aspirin, ibuprofen, acetaminophen or COX-2 inhibitors that hospitalize hundreds of thousands and cause thousands of needless deaths annually.
Many alternative medicinal practitioners have been advocating this for years but until recently, the vital message has fallen on deaf ears. The growing awareness of the general public, as they become more aware of the dangers of the many over-the-counter pain killers is obvious, as can be seen by the huge advertising campaigns that the big drug companies have undertaken in an effort to remedy dropping sales.
"I have been advocating for years that there are many natural pain relieving alternatives to drugs that do not have side effects," said Judy Cutler, a well-known nutritionist in Southern California. "I developed the 'Naturally Painless' spray for that very reason, and am very gratified to find that it helps relieve all sorts of complaints like Carpel Tunnel Syndrome, backache, headache, fibromyalgia and arthritic pains to name just a few. I predict that more and more people will shift over to natural pain relief as their benefits become better understood."
It is time that the general public realized that billions of dollars are spent with the media each year to convince people that drugs are the answer to all ailments whether physical, mental or even spiritual. This has been proven not to be the case and in fact can and often does much more harm than good. There is much research material available on the internet showing the benefits of natural pain remedies, so before reaching for that bottle in the home medicine cabinet have a look at better alternatives.
