Drugs will fix joint pain
No, they don’t—and they can’t.
Drugs can relieve pain and reduce inflammation, which can slow further damage.
great but drugs can’t repair that damage and the pain it causes.
I’ll also share with you a few medications that, over time, can degrade your mobility or…
even worse… confine you to a wheelchair.
Here’s a few you might recognize…
Aspirin and other NSAIDs, or non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, can be very hard on both
your gut and your kidneys.
Aspirin, the most common NSAID, can cause upper GI tract
Other NSAIDs can increase your risk of heart attack and stroke.
Acetaminophen , or paracetamol, the active ingredient in Tylenol and other over-the counter
pain medications, can easily cause liver damage if you exceed the recommended
Especially if you drink—which is a pretty normal way of coping with chronic pain.
Opioids, which are very effective for some types of pain, like cancer pain, can actually make

Even more important codes are coming.
