[Urgent] OTC Meds CAUSE Deadly Infection
For years, mainstream drug mongers and greedy corporations have sold OTC painkillers as the go-to solutions for whatever ails us.
Got a headache? Pop an ibuprofen.
Knee or hip acting up again? Time for an aspirin…
For some people, it’s second nature – like they’ve TRAINED us to RELY on the stuff!
But now, a group of American researchers have discovered that these non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (or NSAIDs) aren’t the “hero” helpers they’ve been made out to be…
Because they’re leaving us WIDE OPEN to DEADLY infection.
I’ll explain how in just a second, but first, we need to talk about something called Clostridium difficile, or C. diff.
It’s a nasty bacteria that’s infamous for infecting seniors and moving through hospitals and assisted living facilities like the plague… spreading intense abdominal pain and “deadly diarrhea” as it goes…
Affecting close to half a million people per year.
And these NSAIDs are ENSURING that YOU’RE one of them!
In the study, a join operation between universities in Tennessee, Michigan, and Arizona, researchers observed two groups of C. diff-infected mice – one previously treated with indomethacin (a prescription-grade NSAID used to lessen pain from conditions like gout) and one not.
And by the end of just one week, only 20 PERCENT of the NSAID-treated mice remained alive!
That’s compared to the 80 PERCENT of control mice that survived.
A 60 percent life-or-death difference after just a week… all from just one measly drug…
That’s some sobering data, for sure.
Researchers say that these deaths likely occurred because the NSAID triggered biological changes that depleted prostaglandins necessary for good gut health, impaired epithelial cells (which line and protect the intestines where C. diff likes to take root), and hurt immune response… WORSENING the severity of the infection.
And that – unfortunately – makes perfect sense, because previous research has shown that NSAIDs can also exacerbate OTHER diseases that affect your gut and intestines, like colitis.
But while the study only used indomethacin, don’t assume that taking a different NSAID means you’re off the hook.
Experts have hypothesized that we’d see the SAME results with more common versions (like aspirin and ibuprofen) because they share “roughly the same” mechanism.
So, I think you know what you have to do.
It’s time to QUIT those quick and easy NSAIDs – and you should do it as soon as possible. While they may come in handy for everyday aches and pains, they’ve also been linked to deadly heart and bleeding problems.
Opt for a safer alternative instead.
Acupuncture has been used to ease pain related to ALL SORTS of conditions for thousands of years, while supplementing with curcumin (from the spice turmeric) or resveratrol can tamp down pain-causing inflammation throughout the body.
For muscle soreness, try rubbing topical arnica (found as a cream or a gel) on the afflicted areas.
