(NaturalHealth365) Over 20 percent of American adults suffer from chronic pain – defined as pain lasting longer than three months, or pain that persists beyond the normal healing time for an underlying condition or injury. A debilitating and frustrating condition, chronic pain exacts a serious toll on sleep, job performance, interpersonal relationships, and quality of life.
While researchers report that chronic pain is one of the leading reasons for individuals to seek medical care, all too often the treatment they receive appears to be sadly inadequate. A newly published study shows that the number of people living with chronic pain significantly increased across every US adult demographic in the years 2002 through 2018, with researchers calling the rise “steep, sustained and pervasive.”

(NaturalHealth365) According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), about 45 percent of Americans have high blood pressure (hypertension) or are taking a high blood pressure medication. Like other medications, antihypertensive drugs are no stranger to side effects; commonly reported ones include dizziness, diarrhea, and lightheadedness.

(NaturalHealth365) Can you guess one of the most commonly prescribed medications in the world? It’s non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). Indeed, NSAIDs – prescription and over-the-counter – account for nearly 10 percent of all drugs prescribed – yet millions of Americans experience adverse effects from this class of drugs every year.
Of course, many have heard that excessive NSAID use could be harmful to the kidneys and liver. But if you have NSAIDs in your medicine cabinet, you should also know these drugs are implicated in an increased risk of serious health problems like stroke.

(NaturalHealth365) The economic and psychological fallout of the COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent lockdowns took a devastating toll on the lives and livelihood of millions of people around the world. In America, unemployment rates skyrocketed, businesses faltered and closed (many permanently), and people struggled with increasing rates of mental illness and social isolation. All the while, mainstream media went into high gear, terrorizing the American public with doom and gloom headlines, and public “health” officials gaslit the entire country into believing that a mass-produced shot featuring brand-new gene therapy technology was the only ticket back to “normal.”
