The Problem With Anti-Inflammatory Drugs

Although it seems to make perfect sense to treat screaming pain at its source (excess levels of arachidonic acid or AA), the drug industry has focused all its attention instead on reducing the collateral damage coming from too much AA.

In particular, they make drugs to prevent the enzymes that make pro-inflammatory eicosanoids made from AA.

This is like calling for the fire truck after the house has burned down.

This approach is known as going downstream.

This is how aspirin and other nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) work.

The most powerful pain medications, however, are corticosteroids.

They treat pain by going upstream to prevent the release of AA.

Unfortunately, corticosteroids also prevent the release of the building blocks of “good” eicosanoids.

Although corticosteroids have immediate pain-relieving effects, they knock out all eicosanoids (“good” and “bad”) without any discrimination.

This is why prolonged use of corticosteroids leads to severe side effects like immune system depression, cognitive impairment, and insulin resistance.

Because of these side effects, corticosteroids are the drugs of last resort for treating screaming pain.

Let’s say, though, you could go even father upstream to treat screaming pain, but without any of the harmful side effects of corticosteroids.

You do this by actually lowering your levels of without affecting the building blocks of “good” eicosanoids.

Now you reduce the production of pro-inflammatory eicosanoids without restricting the powerful anti-inflammatory eicosanoids.

This would give you a very powerful weapon for treating not only screaming pain, but also virtually every disease condition with an inflammatory component.

This is the power of ultra-refined fish oil:  it works with every anti-inflammatory drug because it goes upstream while drugs go downstream.

Using ultra-refined fish oil simply represents a better method to treat both screaming pain and chronic disease.

But the big drug companies are very nervous about ultra-refined fish oil for 2 reasons.

First, it represents a far more rational way to treat inflammation than current drugs.

And second, it can’t be patented.

Reaching the Anti-Inflammation Zone is a necessary first step in treating screaming pain.

Once you’re there, you’ll have reduced the levels of AA in each of your 60 trillion cells and in the process choked off the raw material needed to make pro-inflammat6ory eicosanoids.
