Dangers in ibuprofen, advil. Natural alternative: peppermint oil

Today I had a slight headache and rubbed just one drop of peppermint essential oil by Young Living into my hands and on the back of my neck, then inhaled it… and voîla! I felt like roses and sunshine. I normally make my own mint tea because the good Lord made mint grow wildly all over my yard, but when I’m not at home I just put a drop of this essential oil in warm-hot water (not boiling!) and it’s delicious and soothes my throat.

Ibuprofen can cause a number of side effects.

For this reason, take lowest possible dose of ibuprofen for the shortest possible time needed to control your symptoms.

Common side effects of ibuprofen include:

  • nausea (feeling sick)
  • vomiting (being sick)
  • diarrhoea (passing loose, watery stools)
  • indigestion (dyspepsia)
  • abdominal (tummy) pain

Children’s Motrin and Children’s Advil

Both drugs have a number of known side effects including Stevens-Johnson Syndrome (SJS) and Toxic Epidermal Necrolysis (TEN) in addition to other side effects. SJS and TEN are serious conditions that can cause permanent disabilities, blindness and death.

The painful struggle and death of nine-year-old Kaitlyn Langstaff is one heartbreaking example of the dangers of Children’s Motrin. Kaitlyn’s parents have sued the maker of the drug alleging that their daughter’s reaction to Children’s Motrin left Kaitlyn unable to see, speak or eat and that the manufacturer failed to warn the public of the dangers and possibly fatal reactions.
