So, you were at home one Sunday afternoon and you had just gotten back from church (or was it your weekly golf games?) You decided to get take a quick shower so you reached out for your bathing robe and then suddenly there was this nasty, unforgiving, excruciatingly painful stab you felt in your back!
Of course you quickly got your pills and gulped it down with a glass of water and near instant relief was gotten. And there is a point of view that ignoring pain may not always be a good idea. But clearly, pain killers will make you happy again; you feel blessed to be able to have access to those “wonderful” pain killers, or pain relievers.
Well, guess what friend? Those drugs you see as a blessing right now are anything but! In this article, you will discover 5 reasons why you should avoid medicating as a way to bring relief to your back. Read on…
#1. The first reason is that you are different. And because of this fact, there is no guarantee that what worked Mr. G will work for you – in fact most times it doesn’t happen this way.
When this happens (that is, when the drugs that worked for Mr. G doesn’t work for you), you then begin the vicious cycle of trying one type of medication after another in the hopes that you will discover one which works for you. This in turn begins to take a toll on your health.
#2. Medication is always accompanied by side effects which are nastier than the initial ailment which caused you to seek the medication in the first place. The truth is that you will not find medication for this condition that is without side effects; whether you opt for NSAIDs or aspirins, there is always a side effect after protracted intake.
These side effects may include; nausea, dizziness, constipation, vomiting, dryness in the mouth, urinary retention, pupil contraction, respiratory depression, etcetera.
#3. Medication is expensive! Initially you may think that that first bottle filled with drugs is not so expensive. In your mind you believe that you would have gotten better by the time the container is empty but you are wrong.
You see, you would have only become more dependent on the drugs by then and cannot imagine your life without it. Stay away from medication – they will cause you to break the bank.
#4. Medication is addictive. You will become dependent to pain killers which will help to numb the pain but which cannot make the pain go away. Additionally, you will constantly need to “up” or increase the dosage required to achieve the numbness you require.
#5. Medication will not help you discover the root cause of your problem. You need to be able to get to the real, fundamental cause of your back pain and this will not happen as long as you continue to pop those pills. This means that you will never get to the source of your back problem as long as you continue to take those pills at every opportunity.
How long will you keep on doing this? Are you not tired of a system that obviously does not work? Read on to see how thousands of former back pain suffers solved their own problems and now live their lives happily free of pain…
