Tylenol Not Safe During Pregnancy

tylenolA study just published out of the Journal of American Pediatrics in August of 2016 showed that Tylenol consumption by pregnant women increased the baby having emotional symptoms by 29%, hyperactivity by 31%, and total difficulties by 46%.

It is also known that about half of all pregnant women consume Tylenol.

Here’s the kicker….public health advice (from MDs and hospitals) currently considers Tylenol use safe during pregnancy.

This is a problem…and one that few doctors, let alone women and future mothers know about.

What does this mean?

Well I think the statistics would agree that the majority of pregnant women are consuming Tylenol as a solution for their pain.

So what if these mothers knew there was a different solution that did not put their unborn baby at risk of having emotional, hyperactive, or neurodevelopmental problems?


This reminds me of the study from the Journal of Spine published in 2003.

Three groups of patients who were in pain were split up and treated.  One group got drugs (vioxx and celebrex), one group received acupuncture, and one group received chiropractic.

The results showed that Chiropractic was 5 times better than the drugs and 3 times more effective than the acupuncture!

And…the patients in the Chiropractic group were considered the worst because they had been in chronic pain for the longest compared to the other 2 groups.

Think about that, what if pregnant women knew about the effectiveness of Chiropractic and its low-risk no side-effects benefits for her or her growing baby!
