A Little Heart Attack or Stroke to go With Your Anti-Inflammatory Meds?

medsThe FDA has recently changed its tune on anti-inflammatory medications (over-the-counter and prescription)  and they’ve just  issued a MUCH stronger warning on the labels for widely used painkillers like ibuprofen and naproxen, saying they can increase the risk of heart attack or stroke.

“They used to say they might cause risk of heart attack or stroke. Now we are saying they do cause increased risk of heart attack and stroke,” FDA spokesman Eric Pahon

It’s probably been a while since you’ve read the label on a medicine bottle before you popped a pill (IF you ever did at all).  Did you know that the current labeling on over-the-counter anti-inflammatory medications warns patients to take the lowest dose possible for the least amount of time possible

I shudder to think about my own high-risk of heart attack and stroke due to a daily intake of ibuprofen (along with Tylenol and Aspirin) year-after-year for chronic back pain.  I took a “cocktail” of all three several times a day to manage the inflammation and pain.  A perfect storm for a heart attack or stroke.

I am fortunate to have been introduced to a powerful alternative to medications to manage my inflammation and pain and now; I’m pain-free for the first time in my adult life!  At the time I shifted from a medication mindset to a natural approach, I had been diagnosed with Degenerative Disc Disease and instructed to have surgery right away.   I was wearing a neck brace, I was sleeping in a recliner and my over-the-counter medications had been traded for a heavy dose of Percocet…a drug with a whole different list of side-effects and one that I was enjoying far too much.  I had no quality of life.

What did I do to turn things around to become PAIN FREE? My first step in addressing inflammation was to focus on being properly hydrated.  I consume a lot of the best electrolyzed reduced water  I can get my hands on.  My water is a mirror image to the water found in places like Lourdes, France and Tlacote, Mexico…the way water is supposed to be IF it is to benefit the human body.  We are wired to drink water rich in minerals (naturally, not enhanced) with a negative electrical charge AND with a reduced molecular structure.  Don’t shoot the messenger!  You were Divinely created that way!

Within weeks of trading meds for electrolyzed reduced water, I was pain (and med) free.  I’m a natural-born skeptic so when I first began to get results; I gave credit to placebo.  It wasn’t easy for me wrap my mind around the fact that just by changing my habits and just by replacing my drink-of-choice with healthy water, I could dramatically change but health but it really is as simple as that.  The body isn’t nearly as accepting of abuse as we think it is and when we refuse to give it what it needs year after year, it begins to fight back.  I’m fortunate that I was able to turn things around BEFORE my inflammation lead to much bigger problems and much scarier diseases!

The unit I purchased to produce an endless supply of electrolyzed reduced water is categorized as “medical grade” outside of the U.S. and it is the best that money can buy.  I don’t cut corners in life…I demand quality and I’m willing to pay the price for it…especially when it comes to my health!   The investment was an easy trade-off for my health and a drop-in-the bucket compared to the costs of high-risk medications and sickness.  The best part?   Not only am I pain-free for the first time in my adult life; I feel better than I have in years and now; my whole family can drink it too!

Inflammation is a big problem that leads to higher consequences (even death) if it isn’t addressed.   Americans need to accept the fact that addressing inflammation is NOT as easy as popping a popular, heart attack and stroke-worthy, HIGH RISK pill.  It requires filling a glass and drinking the right water.  Can you handle that?
