Aspirin is not for Everyone

Aspirin is not for Everyone

This is theme of new commercials and ads run by Bayer Aspirin. These ads are not voluntary as it was the US Federal Trade Commission that alleged that Bayer advertising claims on television, radio and the Internet went too far in stating that the general public could benefit by taking aspirin daily for the prevention of heart attacks and stroke.

The problem according to the article is that aspirin is not effective on everyone and it can cause other health problems. Those include prolonged bleeding, ulcers, high blood pressure and allergic reaction. It should also be noted that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration does not allow claims about heart disease prevention to be made on aspirin bottles. In the settlement with the FTC Bayer will be forced to run ads in four magazines, distribute a free brochure with a similar message, and set up a toll-free number for consumers. The total that the aspirin giant will spend on this campaign is one million dollars, a relatively small portion of the company advertising budget.

Dr. Rachel’s Take

WOW! This says it all! Unfortunately, the public only gets to hear the supposed pros to taking a medication! In addition to this enforcing of the truth be told, it is proven that taking an aspirin a day can actually increase your chance of strokes.

Let’s take a look at the reason people “take an aspirin a day.” They take it for prevention of heart disease, which aspirin companies aren’t even able to lay claim to, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. Studies prove over and over again that diet and exercise, along with overall active healthy lifestyle choices; have proven to reduce your risk of heart disease. Isn’t this a much better option than taking a quick fix, and increasing your chance of stroke
without any proof of benefits?

Chiropractic adjustments allow for the brain and nerve system to function at 100% healing and health in the body. The nerve system controls and coordinates all the functions of the organs, systems, cells, tissues, and muscles. Unfortunately, an injury to the spine can interfere with the body’s ability to get a full signal from the nerve system. When the spine is injured, the vertebra can become misaligned causing a “pinched nerve” affect in the body. When this happens, it is
called vertebral subluxations. These “pinched nerves” or subluxations can lead to symptoms such as pain, tingling, numbness, paralysis, or organic dysfunction in the heart, lungs, liver, spleen, stomach, etc. Ensure your body has 100% of the nerve supply it needs to function properly and to stay active and healthy. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
