In 2008 Motrin launched an ad that offended many mothers. It caused a huge anti – ad hum in social media circles and the ad was actually pulled.
The ad basically stated that mothers who sling their children close to them might need some pain relief.
Crazy concept eh?
I sortof never got why folks buy or pop over the counter pain relief products. My logic has always been if you need pain pills all the time you really might want to get to the source of the pain vs taking a pill over and over to make the pain go away.
OTC drugs’s land in your liver, your kidney or destroy your stomach.
I heard that 70% of those on kidney dialysis were from folks who used acetametaphines. 70 % !!!
( sorry I can’t source that thought exactly …i think it was stated by nutritionist Barb Lagoni )
The source isn’t as important as the idea.
Harm to your liver from taking an over the counter medication.
How about the fact that one can loose a tablespoon of blood from the lining of my stomach, everytime one pops an oh I’ve got a headache relief solution ?
I bought something for a very wicked headache I absolutely had to get rid of while in the midst of a LONG drive.
For the first time ever that I had pain reliever in my house. I completely understand how that little pill got me through a painful situation. I do understand pain and wanting it to go away. I just never kept the stuff in my medicine cabinet just in case.
I never gave over the counter stuff to my kids.
Tylenol for teething ? Seriously?
How about frozen bananas instead!?
For those of you who appreciate having something in the home for pain relief …
I offer an alternative and natural solution for pain. Our pain relief product was the very first on the market that inhibits both the COX-2 and 5-LOX pain pathways.
This patent-pending formulation uses natural, safe, and clinically proven ingredients ( boswelia and safflower extracts) It’s a potent, natural pain reliever that provides long term pain relief without the GI side effects of many pain drugs. It is also significantly less expensive than the COX-2 inhibitors currently available.
Nutrients also offer remarkable natural anti-inflammatory solutions for pain relief. Vitamin C , GLA , Fish Oil , Calcium , and Magnesium . Inflammation is often the cause of pain.
Consider the choices you have.
Immmediate relief and long term harm.
Or relief naturally?
Don’t forget to consider seeking the source of your pain.
