Sore Muscle Relief - If you need to start each day with a handful of painkillers, you may be killing more than just the pain! Learn how they are killing you!


If you are plagued with back pain,Guest Posting or any other muscle pain...and you are looking for sore muscle relief - you are certainly not alone! According to CNN.com "More than 50 million Americans deal with chronic pain, at a cost of more than $100 billion annually."So, what do you do for sore muscle relief and/or severe back pain relief?Most of us start our day with a handful of over the counter or prescription painkillers...and then as their effectiveness wears off,  we take more and more throughout the day!Does this sound like what you are doing?Sore Muscle Relief - Let's Pretend!Bear with me for just a second and let's play a game of pretend...Pretend that you just got a phone call from your doctor and he/she said: "I'm sorry to say that you have AIDS!"How would you feel? Scared? I know I would. Would you immediately start to take proactive steps to find a cure - or at least a way to prolong your life? I know I would.Ok, let's stop pretending and shift into the real world. (This will all become clear in just a moment.) What category of pain medication are you taking for your general pain relief (back pain, neck pain relief, arthritis pain relief, sore muscle relief - whatever)?Sore Muscle Relief - NSAIDsCommon names: Advil, Aleve, ibuprofen, naproxen.NSAIDs  (Non-Steroidal-Anti-Inflammatory-Drugs) are among the most common types of pain relief medications. But, were you aware that the odds of dying from taking a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug after just two months is around 1 in 1,200?Roughly 16,685 people die each year from NSAID related complications... MAKING THEM JUST AS DANGEROUS AS AIDS!The biggest known risk of NSAIDs is from gastrointestinal ulcers and bleeding.BTW - We're not talking about a little tummy ache here, but severe bleeding and possibly death after the medicine destroys your stomach. And that's not the only known risk.Now, think back to our pretend scenario...you would immediately take steps to fight AIDS - yet you keep taking NSAIDS without giving it a second thought.Hmmm...are you seeing the irony?And that is just one category of 5 common pain meds that WILL KILL YOU!Keep reading to see which of the other ones you are using. I bet you have at least two of them in your medicine cabinet right now.Sore Muscle Relief - Salicylates (Aspirin)Common names: aspirin, acetylsalicylate.Were you under the impression that aspirin is safe? After all, we are constantly hearing how we should be taking low doses every day to prevent heart attacks.Think again!Taking aspirin - whether it is in higher doses or in prolonged use at the lower dose (our daily "heart attack" prevention dosages)  – even when we take it in buffered or in a coated form – can double your statistical chances of developing perforated ulcers and gastrointestinal bleeding. Plus, research clearly demonstrates that 90-95% of Reye’s Syndrome cases were preceded by taking aspirin.Reye’s Syndrome devastates internal organs, particularly your brain and liver. There is even more bad news...at least 10% of those affected will die. Even if the disease is quickly discovered and they receive early treatment.Nasty stuff!Sore Muscle Relief - AcetaminophenCommon names: Tylenol, acetaminophenDespite its popularity, even the doctor's "go to" pain reliever - acetaminophen - is alarmingly unsafe to use! Find that hard to believe? Just check out these stats...Each year, 56,000 people (or more) will make a trip to the emergency room as a result of acetaminophen overdoses.Acetaminophen overdoses are the leading cause of calls to Poison Control Centers.Acetaminophen is the number one cause of acute liver failure, Acetaminophen causes almost one-half of all liver failure cases!Sore Muscle Relief - Opiate-Based Pain MedsCommon names: Vicodin, Lorcet, Norco, Percocet, Percodan, hydrocodone, oxycodoneHave you ever had to have surgery? If so, you were likely given an opiate-based narcotic pain medication to get rid of the pain.The same is true with any major accident, or other major bodily trauma...Opiate based back pain medications definitely do work to eliminate the pain, but the bad news is - controlling our pain in this fashion has it's consequences!Care to take a guess at how many people died - in one year in America - from drug overdoses?16,000! - A quick Google search shows that 16,000 casualties is more than the battle casualties in both of the Iraq wars and Afghanistan - combined.Want an example? Think Michael Jackson.Sore Muscle Relief - Cox-2 InhibitorsCommon names: Celebrex, celecoxibHave you been looking for a way to triple your chances of having a heart attack? Just pick up a prescription of Celebrex.While examining Celebrex's usefulness as an anti-cancer drug, the National Cancer Institute learned that...Patients taking a 400mg dosage had 250% greater probability of dying from heart attack or stroke... those patients prescribed an 800mg dosage have 340% greater risk!Scary, isn't it? Is it worth it to you? It isn't to me!Fortunately, there IS a better alternative! Systemic Enzymes.There are quite a few - natural - sore muscle relief and pain killing ingredients that are just as effective at relieving pain and inflammation as the old standards listed above, yet have zero side effects! They work to boost our body's natural pain relief enzymes.Now that you know what you shouldn't do...and now that you know there is a better way (five minutes research will show you how to get systemic enzyme supplements)... Soon you will have the sore muscle relief you've been seeking!
