    Tylenol Kills Emotions As Well As Pain, Study Reveals




    31st May 2015

    Contributing Writer for Wake Up World

    For decades Tylenol has been used as a pain-killer, but new research reveals it has psychiatric side effects including dulled emotional responses to both positive and negative stimuli.

    The public is beginning to understand that many over-the-counter painkillers do more than just kill pain, but sometimes kill those taking them.

    For instance, A 2013 review of 754 clinical trials published in Lancet found that NSAID use was associated with roughly double the heart failure risk. Ibuprofen, in particular, has been estimated to cause thousands to die of cardiovascular events each year, and according to the lead researcher of the Lancet review, equally as dangerous for long-term users as the drug Vioxx which was estimated to cause 30,000 excess heart attacks and sudden cardiac deaths between 1999-2003 alone.

    Popular over-the-counter painkillers include acetaminophen (Tylenol) , ibuprofen, napoxen (Alleve) and aspirin, and many pop them like candy to reduce pain and inflammation without ever looking to identify and resolve the root causes of their symptoms.

    Now, a new study finds that not only does the Tylenol affect the body, but it also dulls the emotional responses of users as well.

    Interesting thought, how much of pain is purely emotional?

  4. #3
    Tylenol or acetaminophen, isn't classified as an NSAID like Aleve, Ibuprophen or Aspirin is. I felt compelled to mention this, as the article appeared to me, to disingenuously infer that.

    Pain can be a very dangerous thing to endure, as it places a serious stress on the body, which often has adverse effects on it's various systems and vital organs. The cause of it should of course be addressed when ever possible, but the use of an analgesic, in moderation, might serve more often than to hinder, IMHO anyway.

    Pain is relative. It can mean different things to different people. You cannot just broad brush pain as dangerous. The point of the article is to focus on why these over-the-counter pain meds, are not always a good choice.

    Turmeric supplement has been shown to stop pain better than the over-the-counter meds without the side effects.

    It has been said, that what does not kill us makes us stronger. Pain can be bad, and its good to have a way to stop serious pain. But without pain, we would not know our injuries. Natural pain killers are probably the best, synthetic drugs generally have side effects. We have the toothache tree here, it works well according to those I know who have chewed on it with a toothache.

    Yes, that's why I said that pain "can" be a dangerous thing, verses "is". I was speaking to the kind that causes a measurable rise in the pulse rate and blood pressure as well as perhaps heavy perspiration, verses the subjective or unquantifiable kind.

    Granted, I didn't read the entire article, but commented on, what I think most folks read, and that's the title and the prelude, or pitch.
    Some good information though, but like you said, should be read in it's entirety.

    That is correct, usually when people get acetaminophen in a hospital it is combined with an NSAID.

    I agree with your view on pain medication. With moderation it can be useful but I think in general people too soon use too heavy medication for pain. Enduring pain certainly isn't good for someones mental health and quality of life but it's most important to work at the cause of the pain instead of trying to relieve the effects that are felt.

    I am not at all against homeopathic or natural medicine and remedy, and actually prefer them to conventional managements when prudent and practical. I also believe that there is a place for conventional medicine as well, and sometimes it is best employed as a first measure. It is often difficult to discern between the two though, as there are frequent ulterior motivations involved.

    Medications are derived from mineral, vegetable, animal, and, synthetic sources. Aspirin for example, comes from the bark of a species of willow tree.

    Great point, masking the pain is never a good idea. Most people should be in-tune with their body--pain is a way our body is letting us know that something is wrong. Some pain can be as simply as realizing we have a vitamin and mineral deficiency.

    The Evidence Against Aspirin And For Natural Alternatives

    By: Sayer Ji, Founder

    As far back as the 5th century BC, the Greek physician Hippocrates wrote about the use of a bitter powder extracted from willow bark that reduced fevers and eased aches and pains. Native Americans also used an infusion of willow bark for similar purposes. What was this remarkable "healing" principle within the bark that relieved disease?

    Known as salicylic acid (from the Latin salix, willow tree), this pain-killing compound is widely distributed throughout plants, where it functions as a hormone. The more vegetables and fruits you consume, the more likely you are to have a physiologically significant concentration of salicylic acid in your blood. This is why, for instance, vegans and vegetarians generally have higher levels than most grain- and meat-based consumers. [1]

    The chemical acetyl-salicylic acid, commonly known as aspirin, is a synthetic form of salicylic acid, a compound which is formed when salicin, a bitter compound naturally found within plants like white willow bark, is broken down within the human body. Salicylic acid can also be synthesized endogenously from benzoic acid, and its urinary metabolite, salicyluric acid, has been found to overlap levels in patients on low-dose aspirin regimens. Cell research indicates that salicylic acid compounds (known as salicyclates) actually compare surprisingly well to aspirin in reducing inflammatory activity.[2]

    While salicylic acid is found naturally in plants as salicylates, acetyl-salicylic acid does not exist in nature, is not formed as byproduct of natural salicylate consumption,[3] and is produced only through industrial synthesis. For example, this is one method of synthesis:

    Acetylsalicylic acid is prepared by reacting acetic anhydride with salicylic acid at a temperature of <90 deg C either in a solvent (e.g., acetic acid or aromatic, acyclic, or chlorinated hydrocarbons) or by the addition of catalysts such as acids or tertiary amines."[4]

    Also, the chemical modification of natural salicylic acid with an acetyl group results in the acetylation of hemoglobin,[5] essentially chemically altering the natural structure-function of our red blood cells and subsequent hemodynamics. In essence, aspirin, a semi-synthetic compound, makes the blood tissue itself semi-synthetic.

    This could be why aspirin has been linked to such a broad range of unintended adverse health effects, including but not limited to:

    Gastric Ulcer [6]
    Hearing Loss/Tinnitus[7] [8] [9] [10] [11] [12]
    Cerebral Bleeding [13]
    Influenza Mortality [14]
    Reye Syndrome
    Crohn's Disease[15]
    Helicobacter Pylori Infection[16]

    We have a section on our database dedicated to indexing the under-reported, unintended adverse effects of aspirin, related to 50 diseases which can be viewed here: Aspirin Side Effects. We also have a section which indexes research on natural compounds studied to prevent, reduce or reverse Aspirin-Induced Toxicity.

    Tylenol is very bad for anyone who drinks alcohol. It causes liver failure. The best thing I have found for my pain is MSM. I can't use turmeric and other herbs that lower the blood pressure or thin the blood. MSM is really good and it is also very reasonably priced.

    Topical Black Seed Oil Beats Tylenol For Pain Relief in Osteoarthritis

    By: Sayer Ji



    The tiny black seed strikes again! Even orally administered Tylenol can't compete with the topical application of this potent healing oil to reduce symptoms of one of the most common health complaints of our time.

    Recently, over-the-counter "pain killing" drugs like ibuprofen and Tylenol have been found to have a battery of serious adverse side effects, some even life-threatening. Even aspirin, commonly believed to be a life-saving cardioprotective agent, has come under scrutiny as perhaps doing far more harm than good. Even more astounding is the recent discovery that some of these drugs have soul-numbing properties not unlike psychotropic medications.

    Due to the growing concern about both the physical and psychological harms of these pharmaceutical agents, interest in natural, evidence-based alternatives has been exploding. In order to satisfy the demand for scientifically validated alternatives to drugs GreenMedInfo has accumulated hundreds of abstracts on the topic, which can be viewed on our various related database pages, such as Pain, Aspirin Alternatives, and Ibuprofen Alternatives.

    Why is Everyone Using NSAIDs and Tylenol?
    The reality is that because millions suffer from pain and inflammation on a daily basis, the promise of popping a pill to relieve discomfort is an ever-present temptation. It doesn’t help that the US is one of three countries that permit drug companies and pharmacies are allowed to advertise these medications directly to the consumer through television and other mainstream media channels.

    But is it logical to expect a potent chemical to positively alter symptoms that aren’t caused by a lack of that chemical? If poor diet, lifestyle, chemical exposures, and a suboptimal mindset are the basis of most chronic health issues, then shouldn’t the focus be on addressing and reversing these underlying variables instead? This would be the goal of so-called “root cause resolution” medicine. Instead, palliative medicine -- where the goal is to suppress symptoms -- is the default approach; but it’s not sustainable and the collateral damage to one’s health is often not worth the risk of the intervention.

    When Food (Applied Topically) Is More Powerful Than Pharmaceutical Medicine

    A recent clinical trial entitled, “Effect of Topical Application of Nigella Sativa Oil and Oral Acetaminophen on Pain in Elderly with Knee Osteoarthritis: A Crossover Clinical Trial,” compared topical black seed oil with oral Tylenol on pain in elderly osteoarthritis patients.



    Study participants were divided into two groups of 10:

    One group received 1 milliliter of black seed oil applied on the knee joint 3 times a day every 8 hours for 3 weeks.

    One group was given 1 tablet of 325 mg acetaminophen also 3 times a day every 8 hours for 3 weeks.

    This study was performed on 40 elderly patients, average age 77, 18 (45%) men and 22 (55%) women.

    The criteria for inclusion in the study included the following common symptoms related to knee osteoarthritis:

    "Age over 65 years diagnosis of knee osteoarthritis, according to American College Rheumatology diagnostic criteria, included 1) knee pain on most days of the last month; 2) crepitus (joint sound in active motion); 3) morning stiffness less than 30 minutes; and 4) inflation in the examination of the knee bone, respectively (15).”
    The promising results of the intervention were reported as follows:

    “Study results showed that topical application of Nigella sativa oil and oral acetaminophen reduced pain in elderly with knee osteoarthritis; after using Nigella sativa oil, the reduction of pain was higher (p=0.01).” [emphasis added]
    The researchers concluded:

    “This study showed that topical use of Nigella sativa oil can be more effective in reducing knee pain in elderly patients than acetaminophen, which is typically used as a safe supplement for the elderly.” [emphasis added]

    What Gives Black Seed Its Remarkable Power?

    Unlike pharmaceutical agents which are comprised of either singular chemicals or simple combinations of them, black seed is a complex food which contains a wide range of nutritional and phytochemical components. These all act in concert to produce complex physiological responses in the human body. The study described some of the known constituents of black seed as follows:

    "Nigella sativa oil is composed of 30% by weight of p-cymene, which is the most original composition, and 61.48% of the weight is composed of the volatile oil. Nigella sativa seeds contain fat, vitamins, minerals, proteins, essential amino acids, and carbohydrates (8). Nigella sativa seed is a rich source of essential fatty and unsaturated acids. The main unsaturated fatty acids are linoleic acid and oleic acid. There are also other compounds in seeds, such as phospholipids, carotene, calcium, iron, and potassium (9)."

    One of the reasons why the pharmaceutical industry and mainstream medicine will not invest in food-based solutions for preventing and treating disease is because these common foods and spices do not lend themselves to being easily understandable, nor patentable. We may never know exactly why the relatively infinitely more complex concentrate of a food like black seed oil produces superior effects when compared to drugs like Tylenol. But knowing how something works should be of secondary importance to the fact that it does work, shouldn't it?

    "Mother Nature's formulas are proprietary, but she does not grant patents." ~ Sayer Ji

    The primary reason why we will never see conventional physicians prescribing food as medicine is because the FDA defines anything that "prevents, cures, diagnoses or cures disease" as a "drug," and FDA drug approval can cost up to 11 billion dollars per drug. Can you imagine a walnut company investing that much money in order to prove the obvious: namely, that its product has health benefits? Chemicals, on the other hand, are ideal for this kind of commercialization, even if they almost invariably carry debilitating and deadly side effects.

    Closing Comments

    This study illustrates the power of natural, food-based alternatives for reducing symptoms in a way that does not produce the risks associated with drug-based interventions. In fact, given that pain killers such as Tylenol actually increase the risk of serious diseases such as asthma, and black seed oil has been shown to reduce asthma, the superiority of black seed oil over conventional drugs like Tylenol may be far more profound than overtly discussed in this study.

    For more information on the “side benefits” of black seed oil, please visit our Black Seed database which contains research on over 100 health conditions that it has been studied to have potential therapeutic application in improving. Also, please use our extensive Osteoarthritis database to learn more about natural and/or integrative approaches to treating the condition.

    It should also be noted the highly therapeutic ritual of massaging the oil into the knee may have played a significant role in producing the observed positive outcome. Here is the specific method used:

    “In the first stage, for the first group about 1 ml Nigella sativa oil was applied on the knee joint three times a day every 8 hours for 1 week. The massaging method was done with the entire palm in a way that continued for 5 minutes, massaged in a clockwise direction at the front and sides of the knee joint. It should be noted that the Nigella sativa oil used was owned by Barij-e-Kashan; for all subjects, it was maintained away from sunlight and at ambient temperature.”
    Consider also that 1 millimeter is only about 1 gram. That's a very small amount of oil. One teaspoon would have about 5 grams, or 5 servings worth of black seed oil.

    Black seed oil is clearly a perfect example of an ancient healing substance which has undergone a modern day Renaissance of scientific validation. As the old world drug-based paradigm of symptom suppression continues to be proven inadequate, especially outside of the emergency setting (where drugs can sometimes have life-saving applications), interest is growing in evidence-based natural alternatives like black seed. Black seed is only the tip of a massive iceberg of thousands of science-backed natural compounds that could be used to alleviate human suffering.

    Expectant mothers are warned to think twice before popping painkillers: Taking paracetamol at recommended doses could harm the masculinity or fertility of an unborn baby

    By Daisy Dunne For Mailonline
    PUBLISHED: 07:21 EDT, 22 June 2017

    Pregnant mothers who take paracetamol even at recommended doses might be harming the masculinity of their unborn son.

    And the common over the counter painkillers could reduce fertility in daughters too, a new study warned.

    Researchers found the pills inhibit the development of 'male behaviour' in mice by reducing the amount of the 'masculine' hormone testosterone in their bodies.

    The researchers have now warned mothers-to-be should think twice before popping the painkillers.

    Professor David Mabjerg Kristensen, from the University of Copenhagen, said: 'We have demonstrated that a reduced level of testosterone means that male characteristics do not develop as they should.'

    He added: 'This also affects sex drive.

    'In a trial, mice exposed to paracetamol at the foetal stage were simply unable to copulate in the same way as our control animals.

    'Male programming had not been properly established during their fetal development and this could be seen long afterwards in their adult life.
    'It is very worrying.'

    Paracetamol reduces female fertility

    While the new study focused on the effect of paracetamol on masculine characteristics, paracetamol during pregnancy also has the potential to influence the subsequent lives of female mice.

    A study by the same researchers last year showed female mice had fewer eggs in their ovaries if their mothers had had paracetamol during pregnancy.

    This led to the mice becoming infertile more quickly.

    But even if paracetamol is harmful, that does not mean it should never be taken, even when pregnant and women should consult their GP if concerned.

    When pregnant women should take the drug

    Professor Mabjerg Kristensen said: 'I personally think that people should think carefully before taking medicine.

    'These days it has become so common to take paracetamol that we forget it is a medicine. And all medicine has side effects.

    'If you are ill, you should naturally take the medicine you need. After all, having a sick mother is more harmful for the foetus.'

    The NHS said taking paracetamol during pregnancy was 'usually safe' and been used routinely during all stages to reduce a high temperature and for pain relief.

    It added there was no clear evidence it had any harmful effects on an unborn baby.

    But as with any medicine taken during pregnancy, paracetamol should be used at the lowest effective dose for the shortest possible time.

    Paracetamol and ibuprofen don't just numb pain, they can also block emotion: Cheap painkillers

    I have observed people who take these OTC pain medication, regularly, were less compassionate towards others, with an almost robotic-type attitude with regards to other people's feelings. This information actually gives credence to my observations.

    Paracetamol and ibuprofen don't just numb pain, they can also block emotion: Cheap painkillers affect how people respond to hurt feelings, 'alarming' review reveals

    By Stephen Matthews For Mailonline
    PUBLISHED: 08:09 EST, 6 February 2018


    Paracetamol and ibuprofen can interfere with thoughts and emotions, an 'alarming' review suggests.

    Over-the-counter painkillers may influence how people process information, react to emotionally evocative images and experience hurt feelings.

    This makes them less sensitive in certain scenarios, such as being excluded or even reading about a stranger's agonising pain, according to scientists.

    It suggests the cheap painkillers, which can cost as little as 19p for 12 tablets, block feelings to the brain as well as physical discomfort.

    The new review, by the University of California, Santa Barbara, follows warnings over the popular pills and their links to a raised risk of heart attacks, fertility problems and liver damage.

    Dr Kyle Ratner, co-author of the study, said: 'In many ways, the reviewed findings are alarming.

    'Consumers assume that when they take an over-the-counter pain medication, it will relieve their physical symptoms.'

    He added that they 'do not anticipate broader psychological effects', such as those uncovered in the review of trials.

    The review revealed that, compared to those who took placebos, women who took a dose of ibuprofen reported less hurt feelings from emotionally painful experiences.

    These included being excluded from a game or writing about a time when they were betrayed.

    Men showed the opposite pattern, according to the article published in the journal Policy Insights from the Behavioural and Brain Sciences.

    The researchers also found the pills influence the ability to empathise with the pain of others, compared to those taking placebos.

    People who took paracetamol were less emotionally distressed while reading about a person experiencing pain and felt less regard for the person.

    Researchers in previous studies have also discovered painkillers can alter our ability to process information.

    People who took paracetamol made more errors of omission in a game where they were asked, at various times, either to perform or to not perform a task.

    The same study also suggested that painkillers can affect reactions to emotional objects.

    Those on paracetamol rated pleasant and unpleasant photographs less extremely than those who took placebos.

    And other researchers also discovered that the pills can alter discomfort from parting with possessions.

    When asked to set a selling price on an object they owned, people on paracetamol set prices that were cheaper than the prices set by people who took placebos.

    The researchers also said that while the medicine could have new potential for helping people deal with hurt feelings, more research is needed.

    Dr Ratner said it needs to be determined if it would have negative effects for people who take it in combination with other medicines, or who are depressed.

    While the researchers emphasised that further studies are necessary before policymakers consider new regulations, they recommend policymakers begin to think about potential public health risks and benefits in case preliminary studies are confirmed.

    Always trying to get stuff banned.
    * Enforce Border Security – America should be guarding her own borders and enforcing her own laws instead of policing the world and implementing UN mandates.

    * No Amnesty - The Obama Administration’s endorsement of so-called “Comprehensive Immigration Reform,” granting amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants, will only encourage more law-breaking.

    * Abolish the Welfare State – Taxpayers cannot continue to pay the high costs to sustain this powerful incentive for illegal immigration. As Milton Friedman famously said, you can’t have open borders and a welfare state.

    * End Birthright Citizenship – As long as illegal immigrants know their children born here will be granted U.S. citizenship, we’ll never be able to control our immigration problem.
