Anti-Inflammatories: What Should I Use?
It may seem contradictory, but inflammation is a natural process necessary for the renewal of tissues, in the face of aggression. The damaged tissues become red, swollen and painful, because an influx of blood will evacuate dead cells and toxins. When the phenomenon continues beyond the time necessary to repair the attacked tissue, it is called “chronic inflammation.”
Chronic inflammation is the cause of many diseases, ranging from type 2 diabetes, to myocardial infarction, including cancers, asthma, and many neurodegenerative diseases. (1)
To stop the effects of chronic inflammation, many people use anti-inflammatory drugs. But synthetic anti-inflammatory drugs lower our immune system, which we absolutely need to protect ourselves from viruses and microbes in our environment.
What are the Main Anti-Inflammatories?
There are two main families of anti-inflammatory drugs: non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), and corticosteroids. These two major families are synthetic products, the benefits of which are offset by numerous side effects:
The most common are Acetylsalicylic Acid (Aspirin®, Aspégic® …), Diclofenac (Flector®, Voltarene® …), Ibuprofen (Advil®, Nurofen®, Spedifen®), or Ketoprofen ( Profénid®, Kétum® …).NSAIDs induce side effects.
These are used for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis or certain skin diseases…they also have side effects, as explained by rheumatologist Dr. Catherine Cormier (3).”They have consequences on the metabolism of bone, in particular they are toxic for certain cells which build bone. And at the same time, corticoids reduce the digestive absorption of calcium with an increase in bone destruction. The result is bone loss. ”
Many synthetic products sold today try their best to “copy” nature. Thus, aspirin corresponds to an extract of white willow, rich in salicylic acid, before being synthesized by the pharmaceutical industry. So why not use natural products directly? Especially since natural anti-inflammatory drugs will not diminish our immune defenses.
Where to Find Natural Anti-Inflammatories?
Natural anti-inflammatories are everywhere. They can be found:
- In the form of essential oil (4) for a topical action (lavender or clove oil or even peppermint oil are particularly effective)
- In the form of food (Omega-3, found especially in fatty fish)
- In the form of herbs (rosemary, curcumin, blackcurrant leaves, etc.)
- In the form of a liquid or gel (Aloe vera)
- In the form of supplements (Magnesium, Vitamin E, Pao pereira)
In this last category, Pao pereira has just been the subject of a recent publication studying its mechanism of action to fight against benign prostatic hyperplasia (5). But Pao pereira occupies a very special place because this anti-inflammatory also exhibits anti-cancer properties. Thanks to the partnerships established by The Beljanski Foundation, the activity of Pao pereira has now been well studied and confirmed by many universities. These pre-clinical studies cover many cancers, including prostate (6) even metastasized (7), ovarian (8) and pancreatic cancer (9), and even cancer stem cells, responsible metastases (10). In addition, and particularly interesting in this period when everyone fears COVID-19, Pao pereira has shown itself capable within the framework of a clinical trial, of improving the immune state of an HIV positive population. The clinical trial followed the HIV positive population for twelve months in a hospital setting, and had all been very well tolerated. (11)
The clinical trial, conducted in 1994, concluded that Pao pereira was effective (called at the time “PB 100” by Dr. Mirko Beljanski and is now known as Pao V “FM”, in memory of François Mitterrand. The product helped finish his second term as the President of France, as reported by Dr. Gubler in his book – “The Big Secret”). At the time, any discovery that challenged AZT’s monopoly on the treatment of AIDS was ruthlessly destroyed, and the successes won with cancer caused trouble for Dr. Mirko Beljanski.
But maybe it’s time to put an end to the controversies and fully appreciate the properties of this extract, which is anti-inflammatory, anti-cancer and antiviral all at the same time?
