Ibuprofen reduces any sort of pain instantly,  but, on the other hand, there are many harmful effects of the long- term use. Some of the side effects are: hypertension (high blood pressure), erectile dysfunction, diarrhea/nausea, gastrointestinal bleeding, increased risk of heart attack, potential kidney cancer formation and others.

Fortunately, the nature has provided a natural remedy. That remedy is turmeric.

Ibuprofen and other NSAIDs, work by inhibiting an enzyme, Cyclooxygenase 2 or also known as COX – 2, that may lead to further inflammation.Turmeric is high in a very powerful compound, called curcumin. It acts like a true miracle for your health. In a case you are breast feeding or pregnant, you should not drink turmeric tea.
