Throw These Pain Pills in the Trash!
Part of aging well is having the freedom to spend time enjoying your favorite activities.
Maybe you’ve always dreamed of joining the local golf club… or helping out with your grandkids’ Girl Scout troop or basketball team.
But nothing can ruin your plans faster than chronic back pain. A stiff, aching back can make even the smallest activities — like climbing out of bed or walking up a flight of stairs — absolutely agonizing.
And if you’re like lots of folks with back pain, you go reaching for that trusty bottle of ibuprofen.
Well, it may be time to throw those drugs in the trash. Because a new study shows they do next to NOTHING for back pain — and may be damaging your gut instead.
Researchers from Australia recently wrapped up a massive study that looked at the use of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) like ibuprofen (Advil) and naproxen (Aleve) for back pain.
And you would be better off taking nothing.
The study found that only one in six people with back pain experienced any relief from NSAIDs — and in many cases, the difference was too small to actually matter.
Can you imagine that? The drug companies have made BILLIONS selling these pills to folks with back pain. And how many commercials have you seen in which someone is clutching at their back in pain before popping one of these “wonder drugs”?
And meanwhile, they’re practically worthless! Worse still, the people taking NSAIDs were more than twice as likely to suffer gastrointestinal problems, which are very common with these meds.
Unfortunately, Tylenol (acetaminophen) isn’t any better, according to previous research.

This Food Could Be Growing Deadly Tumors
This Food Could Be Growing Deadly Tumors
Are we literally FEEDING cancer cells by putting this one food on our dinner plates?
This is important. THIS one food could be growing cancer cells.
And here’s where it gets interesting… as soon as we STOP eating it, the opposite happens: cancer cells STARVE to death — and die out by the thousands.
Skeptical? See the evidence here.
Of course, that doesn’t mean you should leave your back pain untreated. You just need to try a natural approach.
The herbal supplement devil’s claw (which comes from an African fruit) has been proven to provide real back pain relief you can feel.
In a four-week study, nearly 200 men and women with back pain tried taking devil’s claw daily. And after just a month, they had less pain and had even cut down their painkiller use.
And in another study on back pain, devil’s claw performed just as well as one of the most powerful prescription pain drugs on the market (and devil’s claw is much safer).
Devil’s claw supplements are easy to find online. You can pick them up from suppliers like Swanson or Nature’s Way for less than $10 a month.
