The world is progressively moving towards a more natural way of nutrition and medication. The recent survey held in Sweden on the Socio-demographic of the people using natural remedy and natural medication, showed that the number of users was rising and the chances of them trying natural supplements were higher than ever before.
The fast paced life has cornered the society to seek for a more fulfilling way to supplement diet and to treat illness; a natural way to treat diseases with the least side-effects. We will be taking a look into how the titans of pain relieving and inflammation such as ibuprofen, aspirin, and paracetamol are being left in the shadows and making way for Cannabidiol.
The Undeniable Barrage Of Side Effects
The sheer volume of conclusive research that points out the long term side effects of using medication with similar profile as aspirin is unimaginable. Aspirin works by fooling around with the blood clotting action of the body. the minute you have a cut or a bruise and you begin to bleed, the platelets in your blood get to work and start plugging the wound; this is to prevent infection and pathogens from creeping it when exposed to the environment and also to prevent loss of blood.
Aspirin, ibuprofen and paracetamol are categorised in what is called NSAIDs or Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications. Regular use of these NSAIDs can increase bleeding risk. NSAIDs exponentially increase the risk of heart attacks and increase the chances of bleeding not stopping. I needn’t explain the problem that poses.
The other side effects are included below:
- Stroke as a result of a blood vessel that burst. NSAIDs do well to prevent the occurrence of clot related strokes but increase the risk of haemorrhagic stroke or bleeding strokes.
- Chances of an allergic reaction.
- Gastrointestinal bleeding: the chances of getting stomach ulcers are more if you have a habit of taking aspirin frequently. If you are susceptible to bleeding ulcers in the stomach, then the situation will become life threatening if you take in aspirin as the clotting won’t happen as fast.
CBD To The Rescue
CBD is a natural, herbal alternative that comes with none of the life threatening side-effects mentioned with aspirin. The CBD health benefits include effectively relieving pain and controlling the inflammation, all the while giving you peace of mind and de-stressing you. The worst of the side effects that would happen as a result of taking too much of pure CBD include an upset stomach, sleepiness and diarrhea!
