Avoid the Hidden Danger Lurking In Your Medicine Cabinet
New research reveals why arthritis sufferers are at increased risk. Plus, the simple, new discovery that can make the danger–and the pain–go away for good!
It’s bad enough that just thinking about the pain of your arthritis is enough to make you wince. There’s the stiffness and swelling in your joints and muscles. You can barely move, let alone cook breakfast, garden or write a grocery list. Sometimes, even a simple handshake or hug can be excruciating.
But what if you discovered that the over-the-counter pain pills you were taking to relieve your pain were actually doing more harm than good? Well, if you’re like most Americans who take aspirin, ibuprofen or acetaminophen for your arthritis, then that’s exactly what’s happening, medical experts say.
The danger in your medicine chest
It may be hard to believe, but the same over-the-counter remedies you give to your own children for their headaches and fevers are likely harming you when you take them for your arthritis.
Why? Doctors say it all comes down to one simple fact: aspirin, ibuprofen and acetaminophen were not designed for long-term use. This means no longer than 7-14 days in a row–and certainly not for years at a stretch like many chronic arthritis sufferers often do.
And there’s a good reason for that…
The side effects of NSAIDs
Many OTC pain pills fit into a classification of medications called “non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs”, also known as NSAIDs. And, while perfectly safe for short-term use–like headaches and fever–clinical studies show that use of NSAIDs for long periods of time for chronic conditions–like arthritis–can cause serious side effects, the most common of which are bleeding ulcers and liver and kidney damage.There is also a risk of stoke or heart attack with most OTC pain pills
Are you at risk?
You could be if you’re the 1 out of 5 people who will develop dangerous side effects as a result of using NSAIDs, according to the Mayo Clinic. Additional studies report that approximately 200,000 NSAID users will end up in the hospital this year, and a shocking 10,000 will actually die.
In light of these statistics, many physicians are now advising their patients to avoid using NSAIDs altogether.
Arthritis sufferers’ added risk
Arthritis sufferers have one other reason to consider avoiding over-the-counter pill remedies for their arthritis pain. What is it? NSAIDs have been shown to actually accelerate the onset of arthritis by inhibiting cartilage regeneration, according to new studies by researchers including Jason Theodosakis, M.D., author of The Arthritis Cure.
New pain relief discovery
If you’re an arthritis sufferer who doesn’t want to risk the many side effects of NSAIDs, then where can you find pain relief? Most likely, not in greasy drugstore creams and rubs. They’re notorious for staining clothes and having that embarrassing mentholated odor. And they only mask pain with hot/cold sensations rather actually treating pain. Carrying hot water bottles and ice packs around simply isn’t a practical solution. Asking your doctor to prescribe even more potent drugs may lead to dependencies and worse.
The answer to pain relief without the side effects may just lie in a new, all-natural topical pain reliever that’s remarkable tough on pain yet so gentle on skin. It’s the next best thing to a massage.
What is this new formula?
This new pain-relief cream is called NR1222 and it’s named for the number of pain relief formulas that were tested until finally hitting upon the one that did the trick–1,222. That may seem like a lot. Especially when you take into account that the medical research leading to the discovery of NR1222 spanned 14 long years.
But for Edward Troy, Ph.D. who discovered NR1222, this wasn’t just another part of his job as a research scientist for a major pharmaceutical company. This was, in essence, his own Lorenzo’s Oil, his personal mission to find the elusive remedy that would relieve the crippling pain of his own life-long arthritis.
The inventor’s story
Having spent years using over-the-counter pain pills to manage his pain, the long-term side effects had taken their toll on Dr. Troy’s health. When he turned to mentholated ointments and ice packs, he found they simply were not enough to relieve his chronic discomfort. Yet, when he resorted to more potent drugs from his doctor–like steroids–it only worsened his condition, ultimately causing circulatory problems, blindness and even gangrene.
In response to the increasing severity of the side effects of the only arthritis medications available, the pharmaceutical scientist decided to focus his medical research on finding the perfect arthritis remedy for himself and the many other arthritis sufferers who were probably not even aware of the serious dangers facing them due to over-the-counter pain pills and prescription medications.
The requirements of this new formula?
þ It had to be all-natural. In fact, so natural, you could even eat it! This would ensure that the remedy would be completely non-toxic and, therefore, have absolutely no side effects.
þ It had to be applied directly to the source. This way, arthritis sufferers would be medicating only the parts of their bodies that needed it.
þ It had to feel good. That meant it had to be as easy-to-apply, skin-absorbent and fresh-scented as your daily moisturizing lotion.
þ It had to relieve pain–and fast!
So what are the result of 14 years of testing and research looking for the right combination of all of these requirements? A powerful product called NR1222.
How it works
NR1222 is a topical analgesic that relieves pain right at the source. Just dab a little NR1222 on painful joints or aching muscles and, amazingly, feel instant relief.
Unlike pain pills, it doesn’t medicate your entire body. And, unlike old-fashioned greasy creams, NR1222 is easy to apply, has a silky feeling, absorbs quickly and has a scent as light and fresh as your daily moisturizer.
What’s the secret?
As difficult as it is to believe, NR1222‘s formula is simple. It includes all-natural botanical active ingredients delivered directly to the pain source by a proprietary blend of natural oils. This formula is novel, it’s earned a US Patent. That’s it! No harmful drugs and no smelly menthol. And yet, it’s still been proven to relieve pain fast.
Feel 10 years younger
Surprisingly, pain relief isn’t the only reason doctors and researchers nationwide have recently taken notice of NR1222. There’s one other unique effect the pain relieving lotion has on arthritis patients. What is it? It actually improves range of motion and flexibility in patients with rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis!
That’s right! In clinical studies by Milan Brandon, M.D., of the California Research Foundation, NR1222 actually reduced the stiffness and swelling associated with arthritic conditions. Other topical pain relievers–such as Icy/Hot and Capsaicin–can’t make that claim. That’s because they’re “counter-irritants”, ointments that only temporarily mask the pain with the combined sensations of hot and cold.
After using NR1222, arthritis patients who were once unable to do even simple chores around the house–like ironing or folding laundry–now report feeling ten years younger! And as for home-cooked breakfasts, gardening and hugs, they say they’re also getting lots of that in now, too!
Used by thousands of pain sufferers
“…I’ve been using NR1222 for months now and it works just as good as it did on day one. I also told my doctor about it and he said he recommends it greatly and gives it to other patients…”
“Working in a hospital pharmacy for 35 years, I’ve seen plenty of over-the-counter topical medications for the pain relief of arthritis. An accident worsened my own arthritis to where I have been in pain nearly 90% of the time. I’ve tried almost every non-prescription remedy, but to little avail. But when I tried NR1222, I was amazed at the relief I got. My arthritis pain used to rob me of sleep, but now I have night after night of peaceful sleep. Thank you for the NR1222 formula. I will be ordering more soon–and my coworkers really like my not smelling of menthol anymore!”
Michael Keenan, Pharmacy Technician at Norton Hospital
“My wife has severe arthritis in her shoulders and hips and at times the pain is almost unbearable. Doctors have been unable to help, saying “That’s something you will just have to live with.’ At times of severe pain, I simply massage NR1222 in and almost instantly she gets relief. Not sometimes, not occasionally, not maybe, but every single time. This is a true miracle product. Thanks for making it available–you have a customer for life!”
“…to my great amazement I slept pain-free all night long. Also, when I woke up the next morning, I got out of bed and walked with no pain, no limp, no nothing. After several years of suffering all I had to do was use NR1222. Thank you a million times for your wonderful product…”
“… I am so convinced of NR1222‘s benefits that I have given the information to several friends who suffer from arthritis as well…and I have just placed my second order.”
