Anti-inflammatory painkillers for arthritis and rheumatoid arthritis

NSAID’s are a group of painkillers that also inhibit inflammation and are often prescribed for chronic conditions such as arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis and fibromyalgia. However, according to pharmacist Han Siem and numerous other sources, these medicines are not safe when taken chronically. The most serious and well-known side-effects are intestinal bleeding, ulcers and heart attacks. In addition, there are often unwanted interactions with other medications. Therefore, the advice is to take NSAID’s only short-term for exacerbations of pain and/or inflammations. In the video Han Siem discusses other natural compounds that inhibit inflammation and instead are safe for long-term use.
