(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.

And, although conventional treatment options may provide temporary relief of some symptoms, there is increasing evidence that these asthma medications actually increase the risk of future attacks. Let’s be honest, these drugs never get to the true cause of any respiratory problems.
Danska forskare hävdar att ohämmad användning av receptfria läkemedel som verkar mot inflammationer i kroppen, kan öka risken för hjärt-kärlsjukdom med så mycket som 50 procent. En ny dansk studie visar att risken ökade mest med receptbelagda tabletter som Ibux, Naproxen, Voltarol och Voltaren – så kallade NSAIDs. Text: TV Helse Norge | Översättning: Madeleine…..Läs mera
