A recent New England Journal of Medicine article showed that the adverse effects of using NSAIDs (Non Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs) like Advil, Motrin, Aleve and others, can include stomach bleeding, ulcers, and, in some cases, death.
Millions take NASAIDs without much thought. However, research has shown that bleeding and ulcers occur half the time…often, with no symptoms. Among the people who develop serious bleeding from NSAIDs and require hospitalization, 10 to 15% will die. In fact, 2,000 people in the United Kingdom and 16,500 people in the United States die each year from gastro-duodenal lesions from taking NSAIDs.
These drugs simply cover up your body’s warning signs and fool the body. Every day chiropractors help locate and reduce the underlying cause of many types of health prolbmes. Is it time for a chiropractic checkup for you, or someone you know, who thoughtlessly reaches into the medicine cabinet?
