The founders of Expansive Medicine has been the conversation for the public to restrict both men and women’s use of NSAIDS even over the counter, especially is there is a history of cardiovascular disease in the family well over a decade and a half ago. These “pains killers” have been used for headaches, muscle aches, muscle and joint soreness, arthritis, menstrual cramps (monthly), and more. FDA Strengthens NSAID Warning for Heart, Stroke Risks – Medscape
These types of formulations have been linked to heart attack and stroke for over 15 years by many of us in the medical both alternative, integrative and traditional medical field. The conversation in 2006/2007 that betra and vioxx had been causative agents for the deaths of a half a million people is something we all should review before looking for a magic “pill” alternative for our aches and pains. IN many cases we feel that you should start seriously considering “expansively” addressing the underlying issues of these issue you feel the need to treat with these potentially dangerous medications. Beyond that, we also argued the risk/reward for those who have taken NSAID’s like (generic names) ibuprofen, naproxen, diclofenac, and celecoxib. Ibuprofen and naproxen. The strengthening of the warning by the FDA appears to be a further alert to the public to beware.
This next concept is very very important for you at consider. Even if the risk for heart attack and stroke are increased, and you do not see a heart attack or stroke in your near future, ISN’T IT POSSIBLE THAT THE ONGOING GROWNING MIND/BODY DAMAGE DURING YOUR JOURNEY TO YOUR FUTURE HEART ATTACK AND/OR STROKE IS SLIGHTLY DAMAGING YOUR POTENTIAL BOTH PHYICALLY AND MENTALLY ALONG THE WAY? IS THIS NOT THE CONVERSATION EXPANSIVE MEDICINE DISCUSSES WHEN WE TALK ABOUT “FAST TRACKING OF AGING?”
