For many living with chronic pain, pain meds and the occasional cortisone injection are simply a way of life. And let’s face it, that’s not a great way to live. This is one of the topics we cover in our seminars, and here are some of the facts:
There may not be a scarier topic than opioids and their addictive nature. Did you know that according to the CDC, more than 115 Americans die every day due to overdosing on opioids?
But let’s take a more conservative approach to opioid use. Even if you take the risk of addiction off the table, some of the side effects can include seizures, constipation, weak breathing, unusual fatigue, bleeding, bruising, unconsciousness, and decreased sex drive.
Now, let’s say you’re aware of the dangers of opioids and are relying on NSAIDs to relieve your constant pain. Did you know the FDA estimates that 10,000 to 20,000 deaths each year are the result of severe bleeding caused by NSAIDs? Did you know that at higher doses, NSAIDs can cause an increased risk of heart attack and stroke?
Finally, let’s take a closer look at cortisone injections. While these injections are a powerful anti-inflammatory drug that may reduce swelling, the side effects are concerning. Not only do they suppress the ability to fight infection, they can elevate blood sugar, and cause up to 8% loss of bone in just four months.
At Regenerate Health, we offer an alternative – without the scary side effects. It’s called Stem Cell therapy and it can regenerate ligaments, cartilage, bone, and blood cells within the body. This can be done without surgery, without down time, and with no prescription drugs.
