7 Aspirin Causes Death? June 17, 1999 June 17, 1999 An article published in the New England Journal of Medicine said that aspirin and aspirin- related drugs might cause as many deaths every year as AIDS. Aspirin and non-steroidal anti- inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), such as naproxen and ibuprofen, have been known to cause ulcers and other stomach problems in some people. However, this article said that as many as 16,500 people are killed each year from ulcers and ulcer related complications from using these medications. If put in a class by itself, complications from aspirin and NSAIDs would rank about the 15th leading cause of death in the United States.

If put in a class by itself, complications from aspirin and NSAIDs would rank about the 15th leading cause of death in the United States. One of the reasons why many deaths are associated with these medications is because they are so widely used. About 26 billion over-the-counter pain-relieving tablets are taken every year. Recently a new class of drugs, known as COX-2 inhibitors, has been introduced to the drug market. These drugs are thought to cause fewer ulcers than other NSAIDs. However, it is not yet clear whether they are truly safer. Drugs in this class include Celebrex and Vioxx.

20 Im sure you can think of a lot more that could come under the previous descriptions, but my purpose here is to show you how this all ties together. So, lets do that now.

21 Ok, you have some symptoms. Anger Fatigue Pain

22 You could treat the symptoms! Fatigue: stimulants, sugar, alcohol, more rest Depression: Paxil, Zoloft, Valium, Prozac Pain: Muscle relaxants, anti-inflamatories, Motrin, aspirin, Vioxx, Celebrex

23 Treating Symptoms with Drugs is big business According to the National Institute for Health Care Management Research and Educational Foundation (NIHCM). The nonprofit group says that retail sales on prescriptions rose from $111.1 billion to $131.9 billion in a one-year period. It's the seventh annual increase of at least 12% in the last 13 years.

24 There is a better way! Get rid of the Cause! Depression: handle the glucose imbalance, correct any metabolism errors. Seek competent effective mental/spiritual guidance.

25 Each side influences the other, profoundly Structure Bio-chemicalMind/spiritual

26 You can not affect one side of the triangle with out influencing another side. For example: You receive bad news: The I.R.S wants to have a face to face meeting! In your panic you feel overwhelmed and drink too much alcohol and loose you appetite for real foods. Besides the tension in your neck, your nervous system is in overdrive and the loss of sleep brings on fatigue and now your back goes out for no apparent reason
