Ibuprofen and other drugs are a little gift from heaven when you’re experiencing that killer headache or debilitating back pain. These drugs are available in most households, and we are exposed to them from an early age. The consequences of popping a couple of these pills here and there do not affect us now. Instead, they show up much later in life, when it is too late for us to go back and regret the pills we put into our bodies. They are a “quick and easy fix” way to get rid of pain, but they do not tackle the root of the problem. Long term side effects of taking these pills include liver failure, intestinal damage, and more. Taking these pills becomes a habit for many of us. Instead, research and talk to doctors about why the pain really exists. Is it because of a vitamin D deficiency? Is it something that can be fixed by taking a more natural supplement, like ginger? Is Ibuprofen really helping the pain? These pills aren’t helping our bodies by getting to the root of the problem, so instead of masking why the pain exists, let’s remember the long term side effects that could present by taking these pills.
