With the public’s growing awareness of the deadly side effects associated with the regular use of synthetic painkillers like ibuprofen, the need for natural, evidence-based alternatives has never been greater.

People generally think that over-the-counter drugs are safer than physician-prescribed ones. Unfortunately that does not hold true for drugs like ibuprofen, consumed at a rate of billions of doses, annually, and responsible for thousands of cardiovascular disease-related deaths each year.

Did you know that Merck’s blockbuster drug Vioxx caused more than 27,000 deaths and heart attacks between 1999 and 2003? In fact, it was the FDA’s own drug safety researcher, David Graham, who blew the whistle on the agency in 2004 at a Congressional hearing, estimating that over 60,000 Americans died as a result of its use, and the FDA’s inaction around their well-known side effects.

What does this have to do with ibuprofen? Researchers have known that ibuprofen is at least as dangerous as Vioxx for at least six years. But millions continue to take this drug, daily, without receiving adequate warning, while heart disease and cardiac mortality statistics continue to expand unabated.

For further background on the severe and still underreported dangers of ibuprofen, consult the following articles:

You can also view our ibuprofen database which presently collates the peer-reviewed research on the link between ibuprofen use and over 30 different diseases.

Considering the veritable nightmare of adverse effects associated with ibuprofen use — the “pain killer” that that is ‘so effective’ it permanently cures pain by killing the patient — it behooves both the medical profession and the health consumer to find safer alternatives, even if that means going back to the time-tested, multi-culturally validated tradition of herbal medicine.

Here are a 5 clinically validated, natural alternatives worth considering:

  1. Arnica: a 2007 study found that arnica, applied topically, was as effective as ibuprofen for relieving symptoms associated with osteoarthritis of the wrist, and with less side effects.

  2. Ginger: a 2009 study found that ginger was effective as ibuprofen for pain symptoms associated with difficult menstrual cycles (dysmenorrhea).

  3. Turmeric: a 2014 study found that turmeric extracts were as effective as ibuprofen for relieving symptoms of knee osteoarthritis.

  4. Thyme2004 study found that an extract of thyme was as effective as ibuprofen in reducing pain and spasm symptoms associated with difficult menstrual cycles (dysmenorrhea).

  5. Omega-3 fatty acids: a 2006 study found that omega-3 fatty acid supplementation with fish oil helped neurosurgery patients reduce their need for medications, and experienced results consistent with previous research indicating palliative effects at least as effective as ibuprofen.

  6. Cinnamon: a 2015 study found that cinnamon was as effective as ibuprofen for pain associated with difficult menstrual cycles (dysmenorrhea).

The serious health risks of smart (aka advanced) meters – from a MD

A NZ Smart (aka Advanced) Meter

If you have one of these meters installed already listen & read below. If you don’t have one, check out the information which your powerco will deny or greatly minimize. Particularly, if you are still unconvinced, you should watch Take Back Your Power. It is available at the site of that name for a small fee to watch online. This is a real eye opener, a self funded doco by Josh del Sol on the independent research. He uncovers all the detail the industry doesn’t want you to know.

Maine’s Smart Meter Safety Coalition (www.smartmetersafety.org) recently caught up with Dr. David Carpenter, a Harvard Medical School-trained physician who headed up the New York State Dept. of Public Health for 18 years before becoming Dean of the School of Public Health at the University of Albany, where he currently directs the Institute for Health and the Environment.


Now watch what a Smart Meter does to your blood …

Check out our Smart Meter pages at the main menu. See also Stopsmartmeters NZ’s site for info on how not to get one, or how to get one removed. Plus other information from Kiwis who describe the health effects they experienced.

The insurance they don’t want you to know about – your PREMATURE DEATH from exposure to carcinogenic radiation in the workplace might net your employer BIG MONEY

You’ll be shocked at this information. Termed ‘Dead Peasant’ insurance policies taken out by big corporate employers exposed in a movie called  ‘Capitalism: A Love Story’. Read and take note. I don’t know the implications for NZ, nevertheless the companies & corporations listed in this article have a presence here in NZ, the likes of Nestlé for instance. Or read the fine print on many of the products you buy, the names will be there. They are global. And if this doesn’t tell you there is a problem with workplace (or anywhere) radiation nothing will. It all reminds us of the fact that we need to protect ourselves from radiation because the corporations are not going to …. and to do that we must educate ourselves. Most folks  I talk to are are totally oblivious to the dangers and risks and with a 5G network almost upon us it’s imperative we do this. A good start is to explore the website in the link to this article. In particular watch microwave weapons expert Dr Barrie Trower who says:

“I believe that the wireless communications industry will be responsible for more human suffering and more civilian deaths in peacetime than all the terrorist organizations in the world put together.”

ARE YOU A DEAD PEASANT?

From wi-cancer.info

The question often arises as to why corporations and other employers might be content, even dedicated, to putting their workers at high risk for sickness and death from exposure to long-term and mandatory wave radiation. The situation does not make sense—unless you understand the Dead Peasant insurance racket If your corporate employer exposes you to near-field wireless radiation for hours each day, year after year, you may be interested to learn the following:

Your PREMATURE DEATH

from exposure to carcinogenic radiation in the workplace
might net your employer BIG MONEY !

Details about this ghastly phenomenon are found in Michael Moore’s 2009 movie Capitalism: A Love Story. Here is a quote: “Most Americans are unaware that for at least the last 25 years big business and banks have been secretly taking out millions of life insurance policies on their workers and naming the corporation the beneficiary of the death benefit without the knowledge of the employee. The individual policies are frequently in the hundreds of thousands of dollars and sometimes millions. To keep track of employees who have left the company, the deaths are tracked through the Social Security Administration. The policies became known as the ‘dead peasant’ or janitor policies because corporations took out insurance policies on millions of low-wage workers including janitors, without their knowledge or consent.”

At special risk are those working at close proximity to wireless computers, modems/routers and those compelled to handle and wear wireless communications devices, including two-way radios, cell phones and DECT cordless phone systems. Unlike wired systems, wireless surveillance and security equipment also inundates workspaces with perpetual and powerful microwave pollution.

     In this movie, attorney Michael D. Myers of McClanahan, Myers Espey LLP law firm in Houston, is interviewed. Meyers stated: “With these policies, the companies that buy these want the employees to die in accordance with policy projections. You are more valuable dead to a company than alive.” Myers, who studied Dead Peasant insurance practices for years, also said: “There are probably several million Americans who are covered by one of these policies, or have been at some point. There’s a lot of it out there.”

“The younger a [dead] person is, the higher the benefit is because they’re expected to live longer. Women are also expected to live longer than men. So the most valuable employee to the company, if they’re dead, is a young woman.” Michael Myers …. Attorney

     According to Michael Moore’s movie, some of the companies known to have furtively collected death benefits on deceased employees in the US include:

Bank of America
Citibank
American Express
Ameritech
Winn Dixie
Hershey’s
Nestle
NCC
Proctor and Gamble
McDonnell Douglas
Southwestern Bell
AT&T
