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).

Gardasil – What TV One news did NOT tell you

This article is from 2009! So seven years on things have not improved at all in light of recent reports. 

By J. James

Death Rate continues to rise in both US and Europe

Last nights news on Gardasil – a Merck & Co vaccination for girls as young as 9 revealed the side affects of this vaccination for cervical cancer. The side affects they said were minor when studied seriously – sore arms, that’s to be expected the female spokesperson said. She obviously failed to do her research properly as thousands of women now suffer not from a sore arm, but from a paralysis of their arm and in some cases their legs as well.

TV One news also failed to mention the 15 deaths – in fact they never mentioned any deaths, not the 15 in America or the 2 in Europe, although they did mention the organisation that exposed the deaths focusing only side affects while omitting the deaths.

The European Medicines Agency posted a statement yesterday saying there have been two sudden and unexpected deaths in young women who had received the Merck HPV vaccine, which is marketed in Europe by Sanofi-Aventis. But the EMEA decided not to change the labeling info, given that 1.5 million women have already been vaccinated in Europe and because no causal relationship between the vaccine and the two fatalities has been found.

The spin merchants are quickly manipulating the situation. Merck has already been found guilty of killing hundreds with their Vioxx and Fosamax drugs see article here and reported side affects here
here

Will Gardasil be the third given that the company boasted that Gardasil was almost side affect free ?

Death is an inconvenient obstacle to sales – don’t be fooled, a causal relationship can be found

TV one also failed to note that Merck’s shares had dropped 8% on Wall Street
and that there are now law suits pending over the paralyzing side affects attributed to Gardasil that TV One News chose to play down

TV One News did say however, that Gardasil would not be banned here unless the US banned it first – which begs the question – is NZ not able to make its own decisions based on the precautionary principal?

An abundance of first hand evidence is now available which disputes the safely of this vaccination – in light of this should NZ not err on the side of caution given that the research on the long term affects of this drug over time has never been done?

It is recommended that this vaccination NOT be given with other vaccinations – but that was never mentioned on TV one News either.

Questions arise such as – are we witness to our politicians representing a pharmaceutical interests over the better judgment of parents who have taken the time to get behind the hype, the fear and the politics  and who are now having to protect their young girls and soon, boys from a drug whose effects on reproductive health is not known

Given that this vaccination has resulted in still births and miscarriage are we willing to jeopardize young girls reproductive health in order to save them from something they may or may not get when they get older?

The risks of this Merck drug far outweighs any potential cancer risk – where are the voices protecting our young girls?

Clearly the MOH advocates are not, nor is the government acting in parents and chidlrens best interests –  and lets get real here – these are the same organizations that failed to act on the thalidomide scam the continuing Dow chemical scam the cervical cancer scam of the 80’s and the birth defects caused by Agent orange and more.
