Simple Remedy Cures Headaches Better Than Any Drug I’ve Tried

    When it comes to minor aches and pains, we almost always reach for a bottle of Advil to make them go away. Sure, it is an easy way to get rid of a headache, but it is not very healthy.

    These painkillers are considered NAIDs. NSAID stands for nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. They are the most common pain relief medications on the planet, and more than 30 million Americans use them every single day. These painkillers work on a chemical level to block the effects of special enzymes.

    They block your cox enzymes, and in the end, your body stops making as many prostaglandins, which reduces the pain as well as swelling in some cases.

    Here in the United States, we are dependent on these NAIDs to be able to function from day to day. This is a disaster, to say the least, considering that NAIDs are terrible for our health.  Do you use NSAIDs?

    Most Common NSAIDs:

    • Diclofenac (Voltaren)
    • Ibuprofen (Advil)
    • Celecoxib (Celebrex)
    • Naprosyn (Naproxen)
    • Acetylsalicylic Acid (Aspirin)

    These have all been linked to things like cardiovascular risks, bleeding of the digestive tract, kidney issues, and increased blood pressure.  It is almost impossible to find a drug that is not overrun with extreme side effects. Now, of course, you’re probably thinking Tylenol is safe because I did not list it above however it is not safe.

    I did not list Tylenol above because it is not considered a NSAID. In case you are not aware taking too much Tylenol is actually the most common cause of acute liver failure in the US.

    Along with liver failure Tylenol (acetaminophen) offers us many different unhealthy side effects. Research has shown that this drug has dulling effects on your emotional responses.

    The research actually suggested that this ‘medicine might be altering brain activity, for instance, the activities associated with serotonin (our happiness so to say.) So, yes you may get rid of your migraine but you will also be saying goodbye to your liver and your feelings in some cases.

    For some people, serious skin reactions are a possibility with acetaminophen as well.

    There are tons of different natural alternatives to Tylenol and Advil, so many that I am going to have to pick my favorite three and leave it at that.

    This is one amazing herb. It is an anti-inflammatory and offers help when it comes to pain relief. Steeping fresh ginger in boiling water as tea is my most favorite way to use it. This works wonders on a headache and will have you feeling better in no time at all.
