This book discusses analgesics and natural approaches to pain. Ibuprofen and acetaminophen are used for pain-relief, and to reduce fever and inflammation, but like all drugs, there is a risk of side effects and interactions. There are a number of natural alternatives which are equally effective and in many cases may be preferable because they may help treat the underlining problem rather than simply treating a symptom.
