Portland, OR -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/18/2014 -- Joint inflammation is caused by the body’s release of prostaglandins, a hormone like substance that triggers the inflammation. Physicians often prescribe NSAID’s, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, to combat the inflammation. While these drugs work, some studies are now showing that long-term use may be dangerous for our bodies.
“Like most drugs, NSAIDs have some side effects that are unpleasant. Additionally, many times people develop a tolerance to the drugs, necessitating more for relief. Too much of these drugs can be toxic to the body,” said Michelle O'Sullivan, spokesperson at VitaBreeze Supplements.
Some studies have shown that prolonged use of NSAIDs can cause major damage to vital organs in the body. Some of the more serious side effects can include stomach ulcers, kidney failure and liver failure.
Several other studies indicate that over time, the drug effects can exacerbate the degeneration of the tissue. This means the drug may not only fail to work, but it can also be more harmful than helpful.
“Arthritis existed long before NSAIDs were created, and so have many natural alternatives that have been known to work,” said O’Sullivan.
The role of natural supplements to help assist the body in healing is still being studied and reviewed carefully. The Chinese have long used herbs and other natural elements to heal. Western medicine is starting to look towards these for healing as well.
Many arthritis sufferers are looking to natural ways to help their pain as well. They find that some combinations of supplements work to help the body fight the pain and swelling from arthritis.
Several supplements are commercially available. The most popular supplement for joint pain is a combination of Glucosamine and Chondroitin. The glucosamine is said to help maintain cartilage, while chondroitin is believed to improve joint elasticity. VitaBreeze also includes turmeric in their joint supplements, as it is well known for its natural anti-inflammatory effect.
