Tylenol, has long been a go-to choice for over-the-counter pain relief. Considered safe and risk free, especially for children, the truth has been covered up for far too long.
The main ingredient in Tylenol is acetaminophen, which is a main ingredient in other generic pain relief brands as well as cough syrups.
According to the Consumer Healthcare Products Association, each week, around 23 percent of U.S. adults, or 52 million Americans, use a medication containing acetaminophen.
Beneath its widespread usage lies a web of potential hazards that can be quite serious, even life threatening.
One of the main problems with Tylenol or Acetaminophen is that is drives down levels of glutathione in the body. Glutathione is considered a master antioxidant in the body. Without glutathione, the liver can't function properly, which is why taking Tylenol can result in liver failure. As we will see later in the article, Acetaminophen destroys the gut lining weakening the immune system. It also poses kidney risk and is not good for the heart.
There is a class action lawsuit against Johnson & Johnson, the makers of Tylenol, for its connection to autism & ADHD.
New medical research linking autism and acetaminophen is strong. It suggests that in-utero exposure to Tylenol (acetaminophen) may be linked to higher rates of autism and other neurologic disorders, including ADHD.
It's important to understand that when we experience pain or flu, suppressing the symptoms with tylenol or other drugs doesnt actually solve the problem. It actually drives the problem deeper. Fever is a healthy experience. When we get a fever, the body destroys viruses bacteria and certain fungi, plus it gets rid of dead or damaged cells. It's actually a healing process. Suppressing pain is also a bad idea. Pain is an important indication that there is something wrong with the body. We must uncover and treat the core problem behind it.
Tylenol & Liver Toxicity:
There are over 56,000 emergency room visits per year due to liver toxicity from acetaminophen, 458 deaths from liver failure, and over 100,000 phone calls to poison control centers due to toxicity symptoms.
In fact, it's the leading cause for calls to poison control centers.
Our nation has to rethink this pill popping habit, a habit that has far reaching consequences beyond our wildest dreams.
Tylenol is often taken for low grade fevers, stomach aches, migraines, back pain, muscle pains.
But all these symptoms are exactly that: symptoms of a problem, and they shouldn't be ignored and suppressed. When we suppress these symptoms with drugs, we often drive the problem deeper. The results are not always apparent immediately.
Tylenol's effect on Gut Health : Intestinal Bleeding and Leaky gut
Chronic use of acetaminophen exceeding 2,000 milligrams is associated with a 3.7-fold increased risk of upper gastrointestinal tract bleeding. It can also disrupt intestinal permeability, causing the release of bacteria into the bloodstream during acetaminophen overdose. Interestingly, individuals with higher levels of specific gut bacterial metabolites may be more susceptible to acetaminophen toxicity.
Even slight deviations from recommended dosages can spell trouble. Just a 25 percent increase in the maximum dose, or an additional two pills daily, taken over several days, has been linked to liver damage (3). This staggered overdose might be more perilous than a single large overdose.
Current guidelines recommend a daily maximum of 4,000 milligrams of acetaminophen (4). Yet, a 2006 study in the Journal of the American Medical Association revealed that even this dose, taken for four or more days, often results in elevated serum alanine aminotransferase (ALT), a marker of liver injury.
Tylenol Poses Cardiovascular risk, kidney disease risk, and even cancer
Cardiovascular Health, Kidney Disease, and Cancer: Recent studies suggest links between acetaminophen and cardiometabolic health issues, including obesity and hypertension . Heavy acetaminophen use is also associated with an elevated risk of kidney disease, particularly when combined with alcohol . Additionally, research points to an increased risk of kidney and blood cancers associated with acetaminophen use .
Autism & ADHD
Autism, ADHD, and Brain Health: While marketed as safe during pregnancy, acetaminophen may have neurodevelopmental consequences for fetuses. A 2016 study revealed associations between maternal acetaminophen use and attention deficits, hyperactivity symptoms, and autism spectrum traits in children . Some researchers speculate that acetaminophen's effect on the cannabinoid system influences neural development . Studies in rats show that even low acetaminophen concentrations cause neuronal toxicity .

Safer Alternatives to Tylenol, Pain Killers & Fever Reducers
Given these concerns, it's prudent to consider alternatives for pain relief. If migraines, muscle pain are recurring its important to address the root cause, not just quiet the symptoms. An anti-inflammatory alkaline diet, adequate sleep, exercise, sunlight exposure, and stress management are essential components of effective pain management.
There are several safer alternatives for pain relief & to strengthen the immune system in the case of cold and flu including:
Choose high potency pure CBD Oil for its pain relieving and anti-inflammatory properties, call to inquire 954-541-4062
Effective for headaches, muscle pain, and menstrual cramps.
3) Pure Black Elderberry-
choose high concentration, nothing added. Elderberry is beneficial for kids to reduce cold & flu symptoms (choose sugar & honey free)

5) Sea Moss Gel
Sea Moss contains potassium chloride, which has immune boosting properties that helps prevent cold and flu. And just in case you do happen to come down with a cold or flu, potassium chloride can help minimize the symptoms and break up the congestion making you more likely to clear up sooner.
Sea Moss also helps protect and rebuild the gut lining. Since 70% of our immune system lies in the gut this is very important. Sea Moss is also a major provider of other elements that enhance our immune system, including amino acids, vitamin C, antioxidants, and zinc, all providing ammunition to fight off sickness.
6) Vitamin D & Iron
Vitamin D is helpful for the immune system, especially if you dont get enough sun, and a high quality iron supplement (in liquid form) is important especially for women who tend to lose iron due to menstruation. Iron is essential for maintaining immune strength, but its better for cold and flu prevention. It might not be so beneficial to take during periods of actual sickness.
The Ultimate Pain Relieving and Immune Boosting Smoothie
This smoothie is my go-to for when I experience muscle or back pain, as well as when I come down with a cold. It's a little bitter which is why I add both the banana and mango, but it's worth it.
- 1 banana
- 1/2 mango
- 2-3 immune pro pills (empty the contents into the blender)
- 2-3 Boost Back Pain pills (empty the contents into the blender)
- 1 tablespoon Sea Moss
