Over the counter meds and heart attack

Do you take non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs such as ibuprofen (Advil, Naproxen, Diclofenac, etc.) on a regular basis?  I just read a study that found taking these over-the-counter meds on a regular basis, may increase your risk of a heart attack by as much as 30 percent.  Apparently they can influence platelet aggregation, cause blood clots, cause arteries to constrict, increase fluid retention and raise blood pressure.  Even though they are readily available drugs, they are not necessarily without risk especially if you have cardiovascular disease. It is a stark reminder that these drugs are not harmless.  There are supplemental alternatives for these painkillers. Talk to your Chiropractor on how to get pain relief from safer and more natural resources.
