Refuse, Resist! Our Top 3 foods to replace your medicine cabinet

 

The revelation is now accepted truth.

Animal products and processed foods are inflammatory, carcinogenic, and extremely fattening. The relationship between our government and complicit industries is insidious. The market for animal products is subsidized and cheapened, while the pharmaceutical industry reaps the rewards off the backs of the chronically ill and the livestock they’re fed.

Rather than discuss the gloom and doom, why not find a solution! Here are 3 of the most commonly taken pharmaceutical remedies, and a natural swap for every one!

 Ibuprofen

Ibuprofen works predominantly as an anti-swelling agent and pain reliever. It is most commonly seen on your shelves as Advil. Ibuprofen and Naproxen, commonly seen as Aleve are members of the NSAID family of drugs are effective in treating orthopedic injuries and other swelling related health issues.

However, they are dangerous to those with bleeding or kidney issues.
