Health Tips - Protecting and Strengthening Your Immune System Matters

In my most recent post titled, “ Health and Survival Tips: Lessons from the COVID-19 Pandemic” I focused my commentary on adverse effects of prescription drugs on the immune system in humans. The current post adds more facts to similar views, although this time around it tends to highlight  the fact that even commonly used over the counter pain medications have been found adversely affect  the immune system against viral infections. These include Aspirin, Acetaminophen and Ibuprofen, which have been studded at the University of Adelaide in Australia. Details of the study are available at:
https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/2172402  

With the awareness that such pain medications have adverse effects on our immune system, it’s time to look beyond  the medical model on management of pain using drugs, and give it a try for the Alternative Medical/Natural Health approach which uses healthy foods and nutritional supplements (e.g magnesium, zinc, vitamin D, vitamin C, etc.) and other modalities to manage body aches and other health problems,  as well as using the very same nutritional supplements to boost the immune system. For those who are skeptical about the effectiveness of the natural health, I present myself as a witness to share my personal experiences , confessing that as  of 2013, when I started the natural health  approaches to fight body aches and a multitude of other health problems, that was the last time I said goodbye to the common cold, seasonal flue, body aches, etc., and since then to date, I have never visited an emergency room/doctor’s office, with a health complaint.
