Pharmacist Han Siem about anti-inflammatory drugs in joint pain

Pharmacist Han Siem from Huizer Pharmacy states:

Anti-inflammatory painkillers (NSAIDs) are widely used by people with chronic joint disorder such as rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis. According to pharmacist Han Siem, these drugs are not safe for long term use. There is a serious risk of stomach bleeding or heart attack. There are also frequent interactions with other drugs. He recommends using anti-inflammatory analgesics for short or occasional use. In this video, Han Siem discusses natural anti-inflammatory inhibitors that can be used safely for a longer period of time.
