Tylenol Risks, Toxicity, and Natural Alternatives:
Under normal circumstances and in the absence of medical conditions, handling modest amounts of Tylenol won’t be an issue. The place where Tylenol becomes a problem is when you have an underlying, or intermittent medical condition involving the liver.
There are more deaths worldwide from Tylenol use, Tylenol abuse, or Tylenol mishap, than any other drug. That includes alcohol, cigarettes, heroin, cocaine, etc.Tylenol is extraordinarily dangerous.
In other words, if you were a heavy drinker and you had an alcohol load on the liver, then Tylenol would be a problem. If you have hepatitis, you’ll see a hepatitis-Tylenol interaction. If you have autoimmune hepatitis, then you’ll see a Tylenol-autoimmune hepatitis interaction.
But if you are otherwise just arthritic with an ulcer, Tylenol should be fine. But you never want to take it in excess of about 3500 milligrams. 4,000 milligrams is really the threshold where you start seeing problems in otherwise normal people. Everything in moderation.
There are other options, though. Naturally occurring anti-inflammatories and pain killers exist. There are three in particular that are effective for arthritic pain.
Bromelain is wonderful as an anti-inflammatory and painkiller. You take it at night, and it has got to be taken on an empty stomach. It has little to no affect on ulcurs.
MSM, methylsulfonylmethane,is a great medication for arthritis. This stuff works beautifully trans-dermally. We have one called Kink-Ease, which goes to work in moments. Or you can use the capsules, or you can take both.
Turmeric, or curcumin, functions as a wonderful anti-inflammatory and painkiller.
Bromelain, MSM, and Turmeric, are all natural, do no harm to the liver, and can be taken by themselves, or simultaneously, without creating harmful interactions or major health concerns.
These types of anti-inflammatories for pain are effective and preferable to chronic Tylenol use, for many reasons.
