A fear of mine is damage done by Nsaids so when I found this info yesterday I am feeling a bit of more comfort. Could be another great benefit of GSPE that I preach about so much in my life.

Definitely worth the read and especially if one takes Nsaids.

I routinely took naproxen (Aleve) for years due to back pain. After I read The Plant Paradox, I was determined to reduce my usage. That was 16 months ago and I first started reducing and finally have stopped for the most part. 2 keys have been losing my entire gut (40 lbs) reducing the strain on my back and learning some back exercises that have helped my back. I took Aleve for the first time in months about 1 week ago due to more pain than normal and I was about to travel through 12 time zones back to the USA (now back) and doing better. Those pills work but are damaging your gut.

NSAIDS can also damage your heart and can cause CHF over time with frequent use.

Do you know any pain med that does not give side effects? I can't help but think that pharma Could if they really wanted to, develop some meds that are safer...I'll always think this.

Arnica has been used for centuries and I used to use it almost daily for arthritis. But even that turns out to have side effects similar to NSAIDS.

I use Arnica and have a new gel that I use a few times a day on my thigh leg from hip replacement mess. I've taken Arnica tabs over many years and it just does not do it for bodywide OA in my life. Glad Arnica does it for you ....

I use the gel or cream also and they both work quite well for me. Nothing is 100% at this point though.
