Non steriodal anti-inflammatory drugs or NSAIDS are used in larger amounts and by more people in America than in any other country. These drugs are designed to relieve pain by blocking the bodies ability to create the inflammatory response. Toxicity from these drugs lead to tens of thousands of deaths per year in the US. The risks do not outweigh the benefits, especially when you take into account that natural alternatives have been shown to be as effective and in some cases more effective and with no side effects. Circumin, the active ingredient in tumeric is currently the front runner in the natural anti-inflammatory movement. If you are in chronic pain, consider switching to a natural anti inflammatory, the results are not immediate, because it needs to build up in your body for 2-8 weeks depending on your body's level of inflammation, however the long term benefits are worth the wait.
