Natural Anti-Inflammatories








Chemical versus natural?


Those of us who are not sure about using natural anti-inflammatories might first like to know what an anti-inflammatory is, how it works, and when we should, or should not be taking it.

Anti-inflammatories ae sometimes called non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAID's)



Natural Anti-inflammatories are used to minimize inflammation.

When minimizing inflammation, a natural anti-inflammatory will also help ease the pain and stiffness associated with inflammation.




Anti-inflammatories are used as painkillers for many painful conditions such as:


How do they work (NSAIDS) ?

  • They block the effect of an enzyme called cyclooxygenase.

  • This enzyme is critical in your body's production of prostaglandins.

  • Prostaglandins is the cause of pain and swelling in orthopedic conditions such as arthritis or bursitis.

  • So, by interfering with cycloxygenase, you decrease the production of prostaglandins and decrease pain and swelling associated with these conditions.




NSAIDs should NOT be used if:

  • You are pregnant or suspect you might be pregnant.

  • You are breastfeeding.

  • You have a history of stomach ulcers.

  • You are taking blood thinning medication.




NSAIDs should be used only under CLOSE medical supervision if:

  • You suffer from asthma.

  • You suffer from liver problems.

  • You have heart problems.

  • You have kidney problems.
