WARNING: Popular Painkillers Proven to Cause DEPRESSION

Make sure you like Pain No More - Pain Relief Solutions For Life on Facebook to be updated every time we post an article to help you fight pain.

People take prescription painkillers because they want to feel better. Sadly, this is often the exact opposite of what happens.

It’s becoming such a common story that it boggles the mind why so many physicians just keep prescribing drugs that ultimately only add to their patients’ pain.

Take a new study published in the Journal of General Internal Medicine

After analyzing medical records from 50,000 veterans it was revealed that those who took prescription opioid painkillers for 180 days or longer had a 53 percent increased risk of developing depression.

53 percent!

Now these veterans had no history of depression or opioid painkiller use, but the link between painkiller use and depression was so strong that the researchers recommended “the potential for depressogenic effect” should be discussed with patients and considered as to whether the benefit outweighs the risk.

They also advised that patients taking opioid painkillers be monitored for the development of depression.

It’s a classic case of the cure being worse than the disease…

Not that chronic pain isn’t debilitating and worthy of treatment … but who wants to trade their physical pain for emotional pain? Can that really be considered a successful treatment? Not in my book, and, I would think, not in yours, either.

Why do Prescription Painkillers Increase Depression?

There are likely multiple factors at play. The researchers suggested:

  • An opioid-induced resetting of the brain’s reward pathway to a higher level (in other words, they reset your ability to receive pleasure from activities you once enjoyed, such that ‘normal’ rewards – food, sex, etc. – no longer make you happy)

  • Side effects such as adrenal, testosterone and vitamin D deficiencies or glucose dysregulation

  • Body pain that persists even after the painkillers are stopped

More than 200 million prescriptions for opioids are issued every year in the United States, and their use has quintupled in recent years.

Doctors are increasingly treating back pain with strong prescription drugs, referrals to specialists and unnecessary medical tests, such as CT scans, without any increases in back pain relief, according to a JAMA Internal Medicine study published last year.

Those researchers concluded that:

“Despite numerous published clinical guidelines, management of back pain has relied increasingly on guideline discordant care.”

Erectile Dysfunction, Addiction and Other Opioid Side Effects

Outrageously, depression is only one “side effect” of opioid painkillers.

Erectile dysfunction, low testosterone levels, sleep apnea and addiction are also linked to these drugs.

And this last one is a doozy… Opioid painkillers stimulate pleasure-perceiving areas in your brain, leading to an initial rush of euphoria that some people find impossible to resist. Soon larger doses are needed to feel the rush again, and continued doses are needed to stave off the inevitable withdrawal symptoms that creep in when the drug is no longer taken.

Along with developing physical dependence on the drugs, some people also become quickly addicted.

Three out of four prescription drug overdoses are caused by prescription painkillers. Prescription drug overdoses now cause more overdose deaths than cocaine and heroin combined, and their numbers are on the rise.

It only takes one larger doses of prescription painkillers to slow down breathing to the point that it stops altogether, resulting in a fatal overdose.

Alarmingly, 43% of those using drugs for back pain suffer from substance abuse!

This is simply unacceptable. You shouldn’t have to risk becoming addicted, suffering a fatal overdose or developing depression in order to live your life pain free!

Please, Indulge Me for One Moment More…

There is a reason why I get out of bed every morning, and that is to continue on with what I believe is my true calling, my reason for being put on this planet…

Each and every day I hope to reach just one more person. Someone like you who is suffering with pain. Perhaps you are new to this journey and have a prescription for a painkiller just waiting to be filled.

Or, perhaps you are seasoned, losing hope and already fed up with painkiller side effects. Perhaps you have decided that this is no way to live!

And if you have ANY additional insights about other anti-inflammatory herbs — or suggestions on how to use these herbs below in cooking, drinks, etc. — please share it with everyone by leaving a COMMENT toward the bottom of this page.

Now without further ado, here are 6 anti-inflammatory herbs that annihilate pain…

1) Chamomile

anti-inflammatory herbs

In the classic children’s tale Peter Rabbit, Peter’s mother gave him chamomile tea when he was feeling ill. Turns out she knew what she was doing and it is worth your while to drink chamomile tea, too! Scientific studies demonstrate chamomile is an excellent anti-inflammatory … well-known to help with stomach aches but helpful with pain elsewhere too. It is also a very calming herb, so if you experience stress it can help you relax.

 

2) Fenugreek

Fenugreek (which in Latin means “green hay”) is another excellent anti-inflammatory. Studies have even shown it can reduce high triglyceride blood levels! Some say its taste is similar to maple syrup. The greens and sprouts are a tasty addition to a salad and the seeds provide excellent seasoning to a variety of meats, stews, and sauces. It is a common addition to Indian cooking (and you can typically find it in Indian and ethnic markets.)

3) Ginger

Ginger is a welcome and extremely versatile ingredient in many foods, from meats and veggies to drinks and desserts. And ginger’s anti-inflammatory properties have been known and appreciated for centuries. Here again scientific research confirms this herb’s anti-inflammatory power … it’s an excellent herb for migraines and other forms of pain. By the way, ginger tea can be a big help if you experience heartburn … and it has even been shown to be very helpful with those experiencing morning sickness!

4) Rosemary

Rosemary is an excellent herb for pain because it naturally eases nerve and muscle tension. It’s very good for chronic headaches. Research shows it may even help prevent cancer and age-related skin damage! It contains salicin which is a natural form of glycoside – which aspirin is made from. Rosemary can be found in virtually any store (and it is easy to grow in a garden or pot at home), and is an excellent herb for flavoring meats, salad dressings, stews, soups, sauces and even tea.

 

5) Sage

Sage isn’t just for Thanksgiving Day dressing. Sage helps improve achy muscles and inflammation and is great to keep your mind clear. Sage is actually in the mint family and is exceptional for flavoring food.

White sage is a strong anti-inflammatory and is most often consumed as tea, while common sage can be consumed as tea or used to season food.

6) Turmeric

The anti-inflammatory herb turmeric is well known as the main spice in curry, and it is the reason for the yellow color of table mustard. It is also a natural antiseptic and antibacterial agent, meaning it is great for disinfecting cuts and burns. It is another very versatile herb for many foods (try it on eggs!)
