Are You Accepting Higher Health Risks Than Necessary With Your Pain Or Headache Medicine?
Even though herbal remedies have been used beneficially in some case for centuries, they are difficult if not impossible to patent and therefore to own which means there is no incentive for anyone to put up the tens of millions of dollars it would take to
No patent, means no rights of ownership and therefore little money to spend on advertising or approvals. So, natural remedies remain in obscurity while modern medicine overlooks their healing properties in favor of well publicized commercialized drugs.
So, commercialized options are always better publicized and nearly always chosen or preferred while the safer natural remedy options are systematically silenced. Your health is placed at greater risk than necessary as a result.
It's not surprising most people know little about therapeutic alternatives considering how little information one sees about them compared to the many hundreds of hours everyone has spent listening to, reading or watching advertisements for commercially patented drugs.
In addition to direct appeals to consumers, the drug companies spend over $61,000 each year on average for every prescribing physician to persuade them to prescribe more drugs. That's twice the amount spent on drug research each year.*
That kind of money isn't spent on promoting herbal remedies. Even much of the FDA's operations are paid through direct fees collected during approval processes.
Although the FDA has been directed to investigate orphan therapies in the "Complementary and Alternative Medicine" (CAM) category, there simply hasn't been the budget to do this sufficiently. Little money also means a much less active legislative agenda.
Nevertheless, the FDA strictly prohibits anyone from making direct claims about not yet proven remedies or any specific healing properties. Not being allowed to make clear statements adds even more obscurity for therapeutic options.
The irony is that while the FDA means well, people who get relief from externally applied essential oil remedies (not yet FDA approved) are clearly much safer than those taking NSAID drugs orally (approved by the FDA but with strong warnings).
For example, Nutravana, offers three blends of Herbal Essential Oils to greatly enhance one's ability to manage stress on the nervous system. These remedies have been used for over two decades by their customers in Chicago. Many report that the remedies work and rely on them daily to manage their lives.
"Stress Relief" helps you calm your nerves and recover from stressful circumstances, "Aroma Remedy" aides relief from recurring headaches and migraines and "Fatigue Buster" supports an energy and memory boost and clarity of thought in staying alert, interacting with others and remaining productive.
Nutravana's remedies are not taken internally, which is a huge advantage over common commercial pain relievers and anti-inflammation drugs many of which are NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs). Several NSAIDs had their approvals taken away after subsequent data was analyzed. The FDA requires the remaining NSAIDs to display clear warnings about various dangers to your internal organs, especially if you use NSAIDs regularly.
Due to FDA acknowledged dangers of orally taken pain relievers, Nutravana's externally applied remedies are clearly the best first line of defense against such things as recurring headaches, tense muscles, queasy stomachs, high stress levels, for lowering feelings of overload and anxiety from too much stress or for staying alert and clear headed when fighting fatigue.
External essential oils warnings include possibility of skin irritation and individual sensitivity to specific herbs especially for pregnant women. The essential oils are blended in a medium commonly used for skin reconditioning and massage. Testing on a small area of skin is recommended.
FDA approval, or not, the safer bet is clearly with the externally applied remedies. Nutravana's 90 day "no questions asked" money back guarantee, allows people to judge whether the remedies work or not with no financial risk for trying them out.
That's a truly inexpensive insurance policy against the FDA acknowledged potential for damage to one's internal organs from NSAIDs.
Readers of this article now know some important facts that are hard to communicate through the noise of an overly commercialized system of health care. Its in each person's best interest to learn more about alternative medication options.
