Did you know there are natural alternatives for Advil, Aleve, and Ibuprofen????

Who among us, with our busy schedules, and occasional stressful days have time to deal with annoying pain such as a headache or pain in the low back? What do we do? We do the easiest, quickest, cheapest thing we can possibly do. We take over the counter pain killers. NSAIDS, which stands for Non Steroidal Anti Inflammatory Drugs, are the category in which Aleve, Motrin, Ibuprofen, Advil fall under. They dull the pain and you can move on with you life.

Of course, there is a catch....Long term use of NSAIDs causes many health complications such as severe digestive issues.

Bethesda, Maryland (Jan. 3, 2005) – According to a study published today in the American Gastroenterological Association (AGA) journal Clinical Gastroenterology and Hepatology, chronic users of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) have an increased risk of bleeding and visible damage to their small intestine.

Xymogen, a nutriceutical company, makes a great product called DolorX that can be used in place of NSAIDs. DoloroX is for moderate to severe joint pain and low back pain. It also protects your cartilage. DoloroX does not create the digestive issues that NSAIDs do. This is a herbal product that contains an effective combination of Devil's Claw, Black Currant, Green-Lipped Mussel, Willow Bark, Feverfew, Meadowsweet, and Birch. The precautions are do not take if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, on blood thinners, on anti-arrhythmic medications, have allergies to shellfish, and are sensitive to salicylates. The dosage is 2 capsules in the morning and 2 capsules in the evening. You can visit for more information on DoloroX.

All of the ingredients in Dolorox have therapeutic effects. Devil's Claw has anti-inflammatory and pain relieving benefits. Black Currant decreases pain and joint tenderness. Green-Lipped Mussel is a shellfish that contains 20% omega 3 fatty acids, which is excellent. The omega 3 fatty acids and other materials available in Green-Lipped Mussel help to reduce joint pain. Willow Bark helps to reduce joint pain by getting in the way of the release of pain causing substances by the body. Feverfew also slows the release of pain causing substances by the body. Meadowsweet is high in antioxidants, which help counteract pain causing substances, and it has been used for centuries as a pain numbing agent. Birch is used to help heal sores and relieve pain. Birch also helps decrease inflammation and muscle spasm.

There are numerous natural pain relief options in the market. It is important to use the most reputable companies in the market in order to get the best and most effective product. Xymogen only dispenses it top quality products to physicians. DoloroX is available at Carter Chiropractic and Wellness as a natural option for pain relief.
