The Life of an Urban Herbalist
A collection of musings and some articles with a more scientific approach.
An article posted by the European League against Rheumatism referring to research released in June of 2015 strongly suggests that non steroidal anti inflammatory drugs suppress normal ovulation.
More research needs to be done but where ovulation was 100% in the control group in those taking Diclofenac sodium it was only 6% and in those taking naproxen it was only 25%
This is a strong signal that in women with arthritic and rheumatic and other conditions causing inflammation their drug is causing a reduction in fertility levels. If prescription nsaids are causing a reduction in fertility then over the counter drugs like ibuprofen could well be implicated in reduced fertility levels, especially in older women.
Herbs like turmeric are naturally anti inflammatory but will not interfere with ovulation in the way that these chemical COX inhibitor drugs will. They are safe foods and have a history of thousands of years safe dietary use.
