Modern medicine is one of the world’s true miracles. Advanced technology has developed life-saving drugs that have altered the medical field and lengthened the lives of millions of people. But for all the good it does, medication often has negative side effects.
Whether the bad reaction is caused by the drug’s interaction with another medication you’re taking, a food that counteracts the drug, or even an herbal supplement, side effects can potentially do more harm than the condition you were trying to treat in the first place. The consequence may be as benign as diarrhea, constipation, or dry mouth, or as serious as heart problems, cancer, internal bleeding, and even thoughts of suicide.
That’s why Dr. Timothy Scott Beck here at Life Point Medical always opts for a more natural, conservative approach to health care whenever possible. When it comes to chronic pain, he believes in the powerful relief properties found in Ortho Jelly. His patients swear by the instant and comprehensive relief they get from their chronic pain.
If you’re like most people in mild-to-moderate pain, you reach for some ice and ibuprofen. If it’s persistent and more severe, you may seek medical attention and use a prescription-strength pain reliever for a while. Here’s how your options compare.
Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) are a popular choice for relief of many everyday aches and pains. You may know them as ibuprofen (AdvilⓇ, MotrinⓇ), aspirin, naproxen (AleveⓇ), or acetaminophen (TylenolⓇ).
These are often helpful with short-term relief of chronic pain, but they’re only meant to be used for a little while. Using them for more than 10 consecutive days can be a health hazard, and you may experience:
When over-the-counter medications don’t address your pain, your doctor may prescribe something stronger — an opioid. These drugs bind together with the pain receptors in your body and send a message to your brain that you’re not in pain. It doesn’t cure the source of the pain, of course, it just tricks your body into thinking it doesn’t hurt.
Opioids are serious narcotics that not only take away your pain, they may take your life. They are highly addictive and have resulted in at least 130 deaths everyday in the United States. In 2017 alone, 47,000 people died from opioid addiction. Not only do these prescription narcotics hook you, they lead to even more dangerous drugs like heroin and fentanyl, and addict more than 1.7 million people a year.
If you want to stay away from drugs altogether, you should consider all-natural Ortho Jelly. This organic topical ointment contains 29 herbs and essential oils that work together to stop your pain naturally.
