How many times has it happened that you had to use easy methods or rather I would say, you relied on shortcuts for quick results? I guess, it happens many times. Especially when chronic pain is treated as acute pain, and none prepares you for painkillers’ side effects. Be it about any decision at the personal or professional front, at times, we tend to ignore the long-run implications of something that gives us relaxation in the present moment.
And, one such habit or practice is taking painkillers for fast relief. Isn’t it? Despite knowing that painkillers contain harmful drugs, we become oblivious to the fact that consuming them shouldn’t become a habit, for they can have a severe impact on the functioning of our body.
Although time and other constraints render us incapable of adopting proper treatments, ignoring health can certainly take a toll on our well-being.
Let’s go through some major disadvantages of the regular intake of painkillers.
Painkillers pose a big threat to your immune system. With their regular dose, the immunity starts getting weakened gradually, and this makes your body incapable of fighting off diseases.
Stable heart function is one of the important factors governing our health. Painkillers affect heart rate and cause irregular heartbeat. It would not be wrong to say that their overdose or improper usage can also lead to attacks.
Painkillers lead to constipation and several other stomach issues like indigestion, diarrhea, etc. These problems can make you feel uncomfortable and you might end up taking laxatives to get rid of constipation.
Besides affecting other major body functions, painkillers can prove to be harmful for your mental health as well. You might face problems like restless state of mind, inability to take decisions, dilemmas, improper sleep and more.
Apart from the above disadvantages, taking painkillers can also cause nausea, vomiting, dry mouth, skin disorders, vision issues, aching problems etc.
Well, it’s all about being conscious of our health and opting for appropriate remedies like visiting a physician or a medicinal practitioner for pain relief. However, it’s also beneficial to try other measures like acupressure, acupuncture or EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique), which don’t bring any side effects with them. EFT is a natural remedy to cure pain and it heals your body effectively.
The care of your health is in your hands. So, get wary of painkillers and step towards a healthy living.
