    Can't see how either would help.

    Those with Samter's Triad; asthma, aspirin/salicylate sensitivity & nasal/ethmoidal polyposis...won't be able to tolerate aspirin as a treatment.

    The aspirin sensitive will also suffer gastritis/ gastric erosion/stomach ulcers.
    Aspirin also increases risk of bleeding eg in stomach, brain...

    BUT it works great for helping thinning blood, helping prevent clots & thus improving circulation. There is also some evidence it may help prevent colon cancer.

    It cures my headaches & migraines well...but then I get asthma, nasal polyps and stomach ulcers :eek:

    Not worth it!

    Need to treat deficiencies with supplements and good testing before worrying about meds.

    Aspirin taken before and/or during and/or after exertion can help reduce inflammation from exertion, can also be combined with a continuous natural anti-inflammatory regimen.
