Alpha M

Advil Could Kill You | Ibuprofen

Aaron Mario of alpha m. tells the story about his stress, headaches, and Advil poppin' from 4-years ago. When he owned his fitness center, he was miserably stressed. Everyday he got a 'tension headache' and pop 2 Advil with coffee. He kept doing this every day for years (10 Advil a week).

Three days after Easter (4-years ago), he observed that his feces were very dark. He immediately knew something was wrong and went on the Internet for answers. He diagnosed himself with a G.I. bleed. He didn't do anything, thinking it would heal itself. Later in the week, he started getting dizzy and pale. He went to the doctor and found out his blood levels were incredibly low. He ended up in the ER and had surgery for a bleeding ulcer and a blood transfusion.

The doctor advised that he never take Ibuprofen again. Ibuprofen (NSAID)  is pretty much everything but Tylenol. As soon as he got off of the Advil, his headaches went away because all along he was getting rebound headaches. Morale of the video: be careful even with benign and simple medications. If you have a chronic ailment, get to the root of the cause. See a professional.
