Is there a drive to ban Ibuprofen?

    From Jim Stone

    I DISAGREE WITH NATURAL NEWS SOMETIMES

    They just published a list of 5 over the counter medications to avoid. #1 was ibuprofen. That's BULLSHIT.


    Ibuprofen is great because it is not a painkiller. Ibuprofen instead cures headaches by reducing inflammation of blood vessels in the brain, and as a result, they stop hurting. Ibuprofen works by TREATING THE PROBLEM.

    Recently, there was supposedly a study done that proved Ibuprofen caused a whole list of problems. But anyone can do a study and get whatever results they want.

    FACT: Paracetamol causes liver damage. Aspirin causes blood thinning. By the time I ate enough paracetamol to cure one of my headaches, paracetamol would give me liver failure and I'd die of internal bleeding from aspirin. And you can forget codeine or whatever else they will give you for pain, compared to Ibuprofen they are a death sentence.

    FACT: There is nothing, outside of a single study out there that ever said Ibuprofen was a problem drug. Natural News just drank the kool aid and I believe they accidentally served the dark side. Did you know that for headaches many doctors have started prescribing SSRI's? Ban Ibuprofen, and that is going to skyrocket! What is worse?

    MY CONCLUSION: The entire Ibuprofen is bad ruse was staged to get people to go along with banning it, and accepting whatever substitute the tyrants in charge want rammed down our throats. Evil will want Ibuprofen to go the way of another wonder drug - ephedrine.

    Ephedrine, when you were allowed to get the real stuff via a product called Claritin (which is now absolute crap) would bust an ear infection without the use of ANY antibiotics. Then, because it was being used to make meth, they released a less effective form caled pseudoephidrine that still worked OK, but was not great. But that was too much, and the claim was made that meth producers were using pseudoephidrine after processing it back to a more real form, so they banned it altogether. Now there is nothing over the counter that really does anything at all to bust congestion, other than aromatic crap that works for about a minute and thirty seconds.



    I firmly believe they banned ephedrine simply because it was based on a natural plant, and was a virtual miracle cure for anything congestion related including ear infections. I had a nasty ear infection in the early 90's, was given strong claritin pills for free by my doctor, and it busted the ear infection in a day. No antibiotics. That's simply too good for a medical tyranny to allow, and you can bet your horse and wagon that we are now seeing the same thing happen with Ibuprofen. THE PUSH IS ON TO BAN IT BECAUSE THE MEDICAL SCAM COMMUNITY CAN'T MAKE ENOUGH OFF YOUR PAIN WHEN YOU CAN PICK UP A BOTTLE OF 500 TABLETS FOR $12. No, they want a monthly take of $300 or more and hopefully a life long addiction to one form or another of patented, life destroying, side effect ridden CRAP.


    WAKE UP NATURAL NEWS, YOU JUST DRANK THE SPIKED KOOL AID!

    I like the liquid capsules. They get rid of my headaches 100% of the time.

    IMO - Just another scare tactic launched by the ( Big Pharma's) Victimization Class.

    There are also reports Ibuprofen COULD extend LIFE. ( At least it does in Fruit Flies, Worms , and Yeast);

    "...Not only did all the species live longer, but the treated flies and worms appeared more healthy,” Kennedy said. “The research shows that ibuprofen impacts a process not yet implicated in aging, giving us a new way to study and understand the aging process.” Kennedy said the study opens the door for a new exploration of so-called “anti-aging medicines.” “Ibuprofen is a relatively safe drug, found in most people’s medicine cabinets,” he said.

    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/12/19/ibuprofen-longer-life_n_6354856.html

    I put Ibuprofen in the same class as taking a baby aspirin. I take a regular adult Aspirin 2 /3 times a week. I take Ibuprofen once or twice a week.
    ( I am my own guinea pig. I see friends (some a lot younger) getting their chests cracked open, plumbing reworked; tubes ran up from their groin to their heart to blow up catheters or stints, put on Big Pharma drugs for the rest of their life. I aint them yet I'm older and fatter at 300lbs).
    Maybe good genes but I have been a vitamin / mineral disciple for over 40 years. An E.R. doctor I worked with clued me in on A.S.A. use back in the mid 70s. Proper dosing is everything. I aint bled out yet or torn up my stomach.

    Headaches are primary results of dehydration.
    Thin the blood with "Right 4 Your Type" - D'Adamo food guide, as the body thickens blood around
    food it can not utilize easily, then turns it to fat. Processed food ? Anyone, Bueller, Anyone,... Anyone.

    Ibu has been known liver damaging product for decades. Lead was known for centuries. How long before public is protected and/or believe... varies - often upon liability.
    The USA is a petri dish for many corporate and governing entities. Belief is their favorite weapon.
    Travel in history to before need of any of the pharmas daily assistance and find solution to problem.
    Often that means cease and desist from causation, most find such incomprehensible in our reactionary, my problem is my identity, society.
    There are continents on this planet which do NOT operate so singularly, truly amazing to watch
    and to sincerely live.

    H2O in ozs ; 1/2 body weight( in lbs) + 10 = total
    100lbs/2 =50+10=60 ozs which is total amount of H2O ones body needs to function properly.
    180lbs/2=90+10=100 ozs H2O
    This equation is baseline. Go run 5k or dive 4 scuba tanks, or eat bag of salty pretzels, take pills, or drink soda, drink more water.

    Water is human body best friend, everything else is profit for someone else.
    Drink water only for two weeks and comprehend bodies thirst for water as 4 million years trained it.
    Live stronger, healthier, and possibly longer, a simple choice.

    Whether ibuprofen works or not is irrelevant for me, since I won't take it.

    I have other inflammation management methods; Arnica, Turmeric and herbs like Oregano, Rosemary and Basil, most of which I try to incorporate into my food consumption.

    YMMV

    Ibuprofen over 200 mg upsets my stomach, so I don't take it ether.
    We also use those herbs in our cooking along with other supplements that promote good health & a strong immune system.
    With all my aches & pains, I wonder how bad I would be without all that.

    Every now and then heavy Ibuprofen users go in for a blood test and they can't find a vein that has any blood in it. I never take more than 200 mg a year.

    Interesting stuff but "EVERYTHING in MODERATION, Including MODERATION" - Samuel Clemons aka Mark Twain.

    Hold Your Wee for a Wii
    January 14,2007
    "...SACRAMENTO — A 28-year-old woman found dead hours after taking part in a radio station's water-drinking contest died of water intoxication, the coroner's office said Saturday.

    Assistant Sacramento County Coroner Ed Smith said a preliminary investigation found evidence "consistent with a water intoxication death." Also known as hyponatremia, water intoxication occurs when the body's sodium level falls below normal. Overdrinking dilutes the sodium in the bloodstream, causing the brain to swell and push against the skull. Symptoms include nausea, vomiting, weakness and, in severe cases, seizures, coma and death." ...

    I've been taking Ibuprophen for decades. Chronic degenerative arthritis is a bitch. Finally had knee replacement (both) 5 years back. Torn rotator in left shoulder the doctor won't operate on. Still take it occasionally along with a pinch of Tramadol. It's my life now...

    Study a few years back showed folks who take Ibuprophen have a dramatic lowered incidence of alzheimers which also claimed my mother.

    I would be willing to stockpile it if they tried to have it banned.

    Good luck to the rest of y'all in yer old age.

    A few personal anecdotes. Take them for what they're worth. For about a year, or so, my knees were hurting like mad, day after day. I was downing Excedrin's, Aleve's, wearing knee braces every day at work. One morning, getting ready for work, I heard George Noory on his crazy radio show talking about Turmurec and inflammation. Started taking Turmurec capsules, just one a day and after a month or so, noticed I didn't need the knee braces anymore and the pain was virtually nonexistent. Curious, right? Ran out of Turmurec caps after awhile. Inside of a month, my knees were aching again. I've been on the Turmurec ever since and the knees are great. True story.

    I've never been a headache guy. When I was young I never had headaches. Several years back, I started getting migraines. Not horrible ones, but they were miserable, nonetheless. About the same time-frame, I was diagnosed as being diabetic. I was passing urine at a phenomenal rate, which is one of the symptoms of diabetes. Along with the water, out goes all of your electrolytes, too. Along with the migraines I was getting tons of leg cramps. I was waking in the middle of the night with excrutiating upper thigh quadricep cramping. Wicked bad pain.
    Did some thinking and research and found that cramping and migraines are caused by low electrolyte levels. Sodium chloride, potassium and magnesium are your major electrolytes. So, I made up a Sole' of Himalayan pink salt (sodium chloride and trace minerals), Lite Salt (potassium) and Epsom salt (magnesium), in a 2/1/1 ratio and mix it in filtered water. Just add enough salts in the water (maybe a pint, or so), so that not all the salts disolve. That's the saturation point. Keep it cold. Take a shot every several days, or so. Guess what? No more muscle cramps or headaches of any kind.

    Reaching back many years...I turned to a friend of mine (chiropractor) who recommended cod liver oil (fixed it) for my knee inflammation. One tablespoon once or twice a day. It helped tremendously. I still take it in some form. Give it a try.

    Yeah, Unless you can afford to get to those SPORTS Doctors in ALABAMA that do all the PROs. ( ANDERSON and Co.)
    AND
    You're young enough, and make your living with upper body movements. It AINT WORTH IT. Shoulder surgeries NEVER get back to 100%. Muscle Condition SURROUNDING and PROTECTING the joint is the best situation over surgery.

    Had this issue in the family. CUTTING into a shoulder is a Last Chance deal. As long as you have a decent amount of movement most shoulder / joint surgeons won't do it unless you pressure them into it. ( Their Oath : "Do No Harm")

    A joint / shoulder specialist told us. ReHab, Therapy Bands Exercises, Pain Relievers, and a GOOD Glucosamine / Chondroitin supplement, And YEARS of it is preferred treatment.

    Absolutely !!
    I used to get leg cramps at night. My first solution came from a newspaper doctor, Dr. Gott. He said to put a bar of soap, real soap, not the perfume stuff, under your bottom bed sheet. I went from 5 cramp episodes a week to 5 a year. But sometimes, like the last month, I get them, even with the bar of soap.
    I did some research & found that Magnesium helped to reduce muscle cramps too. Interesting, your heart is a muscle & Magnesium helps prevent heart attacks. I take a teaspoon of Magnesium powder, Magnesium Malate, each morning. Does it help ? I'm not sure, but it sure does not hurt !!

    I went to the dentist who extracted two teeth
    After all was said and done, I was thanked and walked to the door
    I mumbled about pain relief as this is going to hurt a bit later
    "Wait here, I'll be right back"
    I was handed a prescription, shoved it into my pocket and went home
    Looking at the prescription, "800mg of Ibuprofen"

    Yeah, let's all do without pain medicine for even a medical procedure
    Cause we're all a bunch of losers who will certainly get hooked

    We're being f'd daily and I'm NOT learning to be a witch doctor, plant doctor, food specialist
    I never wanted to be that nor do I have plans, ever
    I don't have to, we already have the tools to ease my having to work any goddamned harder, just to get by in life
    I paid for a medical procedure, I want the medical treatment
    It's available, let me have some
    I could have done the string on the door knob but was told that was a stupid idea, We Have Medical Professionals Who Can Help


    And it's not all dentists,
    I did find another who was able to appease my pain issues during my latest procedures
    Root Canal and another extraction, saved one, lost another, dang, I'm getting old, anyway
    Oh yeah, that was last month
    Funny, why aren't I addicted?

    I can't take Ibuprofen or Motrin as it rapes my gut. I can tolerate aspirin and naproxen sodium (Aleve). Tylenol screwed up my liver.

    Opioids only mask pain, they do not stop it or in any way provide anything toward a cure if a cure is even available. They simply mask or dull the pain which never goes away. NSAIDS such as aspirin, tylenol or naproxen sodium work mostly to relieve inflammation and thereby reducing the pain of inflammation.

    Aurumag is quite right that arnica, turmeric/curcumin, oregano, rosemrry, basil work well to relieve inflammation. However, there is a point where such products won't work because the inflammation is so widespread and/or too deeply embedded. At this point only serious rounds of antibiotics will work. After the antibiotics you MUST eat yogurts and fermented foods like kimchi, miso soup, sauerkraut, kambucha tea, beer, wine, apple cider vinegar, cheese, tabasco, worcestershire, sour cream, buttermilk and lots of other stuff that is fermented to some degree because your gut needs the bacteria and yeasts in order to function. Whatever you get just make sure it wasn't pasteurized or homogenized, you want the raw goods. Probiotics are good IF you can get probiotic cultures that are actually still alive. Tricky business this is. While rebuilding your gut's biome you also need to be eating the herbs listed by Aurumag as well as others. I would eat oregano as a herb only and NOT as an oil. The oil is quite potent and will kill bacteria and yeasts in your gut. Oregano oil is good when "the nuclear option" is the best course of action like with candida or similar over-growths.

    The real challenge is getting away from the quick relief of pills. The herbs work well but require time like days, weeks, even months of daily intake to be effective. Herbs and fermented foods are more of a necessary "lifestyle" change to be most effective whereas an aspirin or an ibuprofen brings the relief now. Generally there's nothing wrong with taking both herbs and pain relievers together outside of the known side effects of the pain relievers. Just be sure you're doing it with an eye toward getting away from the pain relievers.

    You sure you really want to know?

    It's true, getting old ain't for wussies. It seems we've all been beaten, battered and bruised to one degree or another but, we have made it this far. I really wish I would have known more and practised this stuff when I was young and stupid but stupid seems to have won out. Even though we had a garden and made it to the farmer's market regularly for in-season produce the grocery store and all it's processed foods was just so convenient and generally cheap. Now is time to pay the price for such "luxuries" of modern life. Still, experience is a great, if brutal, teacher.

    Yeah, mine said it's not worth operating on. I had one repaired years ago in '96 as a result of a workplace injury (don't ever tell your boss that). It' about 80-85% now and the other one is flat missing one of the muscles. It would require a reverse replacement, which is nasty and excruciatingly painful I've heard. The doctor said I have minimal pain and very good range of motion and if it was that good now without surgery, he would probably make it worse.

    While we are on the subject of pain...My wife was involved in an auto accident in Saudi Arabia many years ago and the only thing the Saudi doctors would give her for her broken hip (!) was Tylenol since opioids are forbidden. I'll bet the "princes" get all the opioids they want or need.

    I cannot, it makes my nose bleed, so I wonder, if I took too much aspirin, how much bleeding & where, would I have.


    I just had a small cavity filled. I told the dentist not to use any numbing stuff.
    He looked at me & said "really??" I assured him.
    The little bit of momentary pain is nothing, compared to the several hours of a fat lip feeling !!

    I had 3 separate issues with Pilonidal Cysts ( tailbone cysts).
    The first two times I allowed the doctor to do his procedure; Numb the area, excise the cyst, lavage the wound, Shot of antibiotics and a prescription of antibiotics.
    1st time good for three months, 2nd time 2 months.
    The third time I went in I told the doc. "Lets Go Old School". Give me a towel and do the procedure WITHOUT the Lidocaine [sp?]. He said That could help as the Lidocaine ( any injectable) would help spread the infection.
    I twisted up the towel and bit down for the incision. The rest - expressing, and packing was no issue. I did take another round of antibiotics.
    NO FURTHER ISSUES in twenty-five years.

    FYI- "Doc" told me that people with extensive body hair and especially back hair are more app to have issues with Pilonidal Cysts.

    My Pain Management Dr. is on the anti Tylenol bandwagon. I've requested Perc's 7.5 +325 every 8 hours but he refused saying it was to much Tylenol, and was concerned with liver damage. Even though he has my list of supplements I gave him he obviously didn't take the time to read what I take daily.
    Milk Thistle + N-Acetyl L-Cysteine + Alpha Lipoic Acid, and that's just to protect my liver.

    Like I mentioned in another post Dr.s are not fully up to speed with their patients. So rather than make a fool of him I just take the Tylenol along with the oxycodone on my own.
    N-Acetyl L-Cysteine + Alpha Lipoic Acid are wonder supplements, everyone should be taking a minimum dose of all three daily if they find eating the right stuff difficult. There is so much crap out there that ruins your liver that you need protection. Twenty four years ago I was diagnosed with Hep-C. I have never done any treatment except the supplements above and I quit drinking. Today I am Hep-C free much to the amazement of my gastro Dr.

    It's nice to know there are so many "men" here but for us "pussies", pain relief is important

    You see where I placed the quotes, I'm being discriminate, I think that's the phrase

    Medicine is Medicine
    It was created to work
    It wasn't all created to make money
    Medicine is a Tool, nothing more

    AS mankind throws his mind around sacrifice, just remember who your leaders are

    These bastards get ANYTHING they want while you and I have to have "discussions" with our doctors
    Our Doctors have to have "conversations" with us and ultimately deny us, what works, because it's no longer the tool of the day

    F Off with the entire system of Obama Care

    If I want to OD, it's MY CHOICE
    Tort Reform also comes to mind

    F Off with the entire system of Lawyers and Obama Care

    This has nothing to do with "men" or "pussies"
    This has EVERYTHING to do with Power and Control
    Simply by making us miserable, they win
    We fight misery, they take our money
    We fight each other, they control us collectively

    My wife, the nurse, says that its hard on the stomach and is to be avoided where possible. Its anti-inflammatory and has its uses where inflammation is the issue but for your average head ache paracetamol is a better and kinder choice.

    Only @ high dose.

    Avoid all drugs if you can. 2c FWIW, none of them are great! cept wine of course.

    I take an occasional muscle pain killer, now mind screwing, that went from $24/30 pills to $78/30 pills. They last me a year, BUT, over 300% increase in a year !?!?!? The Costco pharmadude could not give me an answer as to why !

    I can tell you why. It's because it has become illegal- here in the land of the free- to not have 'insurance' coverage that pays for them.

    If I were selling those pills with those rules in place you wouldn't get them for $78 either. Well, ok, maybe you.:godfather

    Better not ban it I take 600-800 mg every morning for arthritis. 22 years of 12 hour shifts standing on concrete and my feet are shot. They want to fuse some foot bones together and put artificial joints in others. I said I don't think so.

    Ibuprofen works great for me and is cheap as feck at wally mart.

    CORRECT, Learn the term "Orphan Drug(s)".
    Those drugs that help such a limited number of people companies justify NOT producing them as being NOT COST EFFECTIVE.

    Scopace .4mg is exactly that kind of drug. It is a seasick prevention drug that works really well & WERE cheap.
    It is no longer available, so I have some made at a compounding pharmacy for a buck a piece. Best damned seasick pills ever, good for about 10 - 12 hours !!! It is a pill form of the Scopolamine patch that goes behind your ear, they now cost $15 each & last 3 days. Too expensive & I don't do 3 day trips anymore.

    Last night on Coast to Coast AM, it was reported that taking NSAID's across the board increases your risk of early checkout by about a third, and Ibuprofen specifically increases likely early checkout by 50%! Primarily from cardiac events. It was stated that NSAID's were killing 17,000 people a year in this country alone.

    I was told by a panel of 3 doctors in 1968, "Unfortunately you'll have to be on pain medication the rest of your life, even with amputation." Apparently I'm still the only one in recorded medical history with a particular bone injury, but when they said I'd still be on pain medication due to what they called "phantom pain" even after amputation" (which was being discussed at the time), I couldn't see any upside to going for amputation... I mean, I can see socks lasting longer via using one at a time, but that wouldn't really work for shoes would it?!

    I was on codeine & empirin (aspirin) for so many decades that my body finally said, "no more" and I started having systemic allergic reactions to the drug, so my bod is now allergic to both codeine and/or aspirin. So they started moving me around on other stuff, doc wanted me on ten mg of hydrocodone with 500 mg of Ibuprofen, but the dang VA would send me only 5 mg/500mg and tell me to just take two to get the 10 mg, but of course that would double the ibuprofen dosage. So I started buying it myself to get the proper pills, then doc moved me to a newer drug that was a 10 mg/ 375 mg combo to reduce the ibuprofen even further. Trouble is with all that crap, over a relatively short time period you develop a "tolerance" requiring more & more for desired effect and soon you are just taking the crap to prevent withdrawals. Plus the last 3 scripts had a jump in price of about 30 bucks each time. I was taking 6 to 8 of those pills a day.

    I got off all Big Pharma products, my last status quo doctor appointment was October 2013. I heavily supplement, including legal medical weed, and use my LumenPhoton (which is FDA approved for pain, but is beneficial for one's health in numerous ways) every day. So, am I now finally healed and free from pain? ...could be, been too stoned to notice <grin>!

    My suggestion would be feed the body what it needs and it will do most if not all the corrections necessary. Do a search on youtube for doctor Wallach's "Someone should go to jail" and watch both part 1 and 2. Take notes. If you figure out that there probably isn't any better investment than in your health, then note the ingredients in his products and then duplicate them for far less money elsewhere (I get most of my supplements from Swanson's Vitamins). The only trouble with Dr. Wallach's stuff, is it's a MLM set up which makes his stuff far more expensive than it should be... which is kinda ironic, as he keeps pointing out issues can be resolved with a few cents a day of this or that supplement... but then has high MLM pricing on his product line.... so, his information is golden but his prices are overinflated because of the MLM model. For those thinking of knee or joint replacements, according to the aforementioned 2 part videos, Wallach claims that correct supplementation can rebuild them naturally in about 3 months.

    It was also pointed out on Coast to Coast AM that fairly recent head to head studies of Turmeric vs. Nsaids indicated far better results with the Turmeric, plus sans negative side effects that come with the NSAIDs. I take a house brand Swansonvitamins supplement that combines Turmeric with Black Pepper. The pepper makes the Turmeric even more effective in a synergistic manner than just straight Tumeric.

    Goldbrix, those tailbone cysts don't sound like fun... I'd look into Carnivora. I've had numerous tumor problems, removals, etc. due to agent orange/white. I don't seem to get them anymore since using Carnivora along with total supplementation and using the LumenPhoton.

    YMMV
