Anti-Inflammatory Creams – are they safe? Benefits of Multivitamins

July 29, 2011

 Keeping you “in the know”
Anti-Inflammatory Creams, are they safe?
An AP article from June 9th, 2007, reported that a 17-year-old New York girl named Arielle Newman died suddenly in April from using an excessive amount of supposedly safe topical sports cream. Her death was the result of methyl salicylate poisoning, a key ingredient in pain relief creams such as Ben Gay and Icy Hot.
How many more unnecessary deaths need to occur for America to wake up about the use of chemicals in food, medicine, water and everyday products? Most Americans believe that if a product is FDA approved or over the counter, it is safe. Think again.
William Campbell Douglass II, M.D. writes, beware:

•Use fluoridated toothpaste or drink fluoridated water from most municipal water sources and you increase your brains’ absorption of aluminum which is linked to Alzheimer’s Disease.
•Use too much sunscreen or any at all that contain chemicals and you deprive your body of sunshine and vitamin D, increasing your risk of skin and other cancers and developing osteoporosis.
•If you take too much aspirin or take it too often (like daily on the advice of your doctor) you could actually harm your heart and clog your arteries (Daily Dose 4-29-2003).
•Take too many antacid tablets for too long and you could disrupt your digestive system to the point of harming your bone density and mental capacity.

These are just a few examples of what the medical establishment promotes. If you choose to use over the counter anti inflammatory agents remember the cause and effect theory that applies to all circumstances and be sure the benefits out weigh the risks.
Instead, consider more natural approaches that are safe and effective., Cayenne pepper improves circulation and reduces pain.

•Turmeric is helpful with acute pain.
•Tomatoes and bell peppers contain anti inflammatory substances.
•Boswellia Extract is a natural pain reliever.
•Glucosamine sulfate, MSM (methyl sulfonyl methane) and chondroitan help heal worn joints.
•Omega-3 fatty acids are anti-inflammatory in nature and everyone should be consuming at least 2-5 grams per day for over all health.
•White willow bark extract, feverfew extract, celery seed extract, papaya fruit extract and devil’s claw root extract are herbs that work to decrease pain and heal surrounding damaged joints., Look for formulas that contain several of the above spices, herbs and anti-inflammatory substances. If one does not work, try another one. The beauty of using Mother Nature’s gifts is that they are safe and affordable and without dangerous side effects.
Remember, becoming informed, being patient and persistent are the keys to a pain-free life and good health.
In the News, Great news has been reported again to support the ever mounting evidence of how taking a multivitamin can decrease risks to diseases such as cancer.
Published in the journal Clinical Pharmacology & Therapeutics, the study found that multivitamins fortified with folic acid could lower the chances of contracting brain tumors by 27 per cent, leukemia by 39 per cent and neuroblastoma by 49 per cent. There is no need to ask the question why childhood cancers are occurring at an alarming rate. We know nutritional deficiencies are a real problem today., It has been known for about 15 years that mothers could reduce the risk of their babies being born with Spina Bifida, a malformation of the spine, by as much as 80 per cent by taking folic acid prior to and during early pregnancy.
Everyone beginning at birth should be taking supplements to not only decrease risk to illness and disease, but to augment what appears to be an inadequate intake of daily nutrients.  Most people do not consume an optimal amount of all vitamins by diet alone”

I’ve been a guest at this facility for 15 years. They are the most efficient, thorough and caring group of individuals I’ve ever experienced. Dr Hotze looks to change the way a typical doctor treats patients and looks for root causes to eliminate medical issues instead of treating “symptoms”. My life has improved 100% since my initial visit. The cost of the treatments are worth it.

I cannot accurately describe in words how I feel about this practice and the entire staff. I have had quite a few health issues throughout the years, rheumatoid arthritis, sjogrens, weight gain, hair loss, irritability, and that is just the beginning. I had pretty much given up on feeling good, just decided to "live with it" and hope for the best. Two very close friends love the Hotze Wellness Clinic and they have experienced life changing health. Made my appointment and from the beginning I felt heard. Not a in and out fast food style practice. They are looked and are looking at my entire body for overall health and wellness. Connections from mind and body to clinical blood work, even dental questions....they care and I feel as if I can trust them. I am on a path to complete wellness and my goal is to have my RA back in remission as it once was....make yourself a priority. Having hope is an incredible feeling!
