Sleep Aids & Painkillers Might Be Slowing Your Metabolism

Are sleep aids and painkillers the reason you can’t lose weight? Are they all they're cracked up to be?

Most of us are passionate about our health, but when we struggle with health issues, our fear takes over and sends us running to mainstream medicine. However, what you don’t know can hurt your body and be the reason you can’t lose weight!

The drug industry doesn’t want you to know that their over-the-counter medicines aren’t all they are cracked up to be. They can clog your liver and slow your metabolism down, causing you to gain weight and make your body resist weight loss. To make things worse, they might not even help your ailment because they don’t address the underlying issues that are the cause of your problem.

My philosophy is to do right by your body (take better care of it), and prevention is always the best cure! 

When it comes to health, we all recognize that mainstream medicine has its place. Sometimes it’s necessary and incredibly beneficial. That being said, the opioid epidemic is killing a lot of innocent people, and something needs to be done to fight pain and help us feel better fast. Did you know the federal government has officially declared the opioid crisis to be a public health emergency? In 2017, 64,000 people died from opioid overdoses – nearly twice as many as died in car accidents. This was an alarming 21 percent increase from the previous year. More people die from an opioid overdose than automobile accidents. Pain management continues to be abused, while many drug manufacturers and countless others turn a blind eye. Thankfully, there is a better way.

The answer is simpler than we realize, and it comes from nature!

Although medication is sometimes necessary (and thanks to research they are there when needed), some painkillers and sleep aids could be just as effective, if not more effective, when replaced with safer, more natural pain relievers and sleep aids in the form of nutrients, herbs, and essential fatty acids. In fact, studies show that natural methods to relieve or prevent joint pain and help us sleep are 33 percent more effective, but without the harmful side effects such as weight gain and clogging the liver. Not to mention, we become addicted, despite the fact that they make us feel mentally worse and take depression to a whole new deeper level.


Our world has a need for quick fix solution versus prevention. This quick fix mentality has caused a love-hate relationship with opioids for centuries. We have been growing the opium poppy for at least 5,000 years for pain relief and recreational use. Even Hippocrates, the ancient Greek father of medicine, used to recommend mixing poppy juice with nettle (found in LynFit Thyro-Boost) for treating illnesses and pain.

Sadly, in 1805, man learned how to produce morphine and codeine from opium. At this point, Opium's addictive qualities were well-known, but no one really knew morphine was so addictive. One of the worst ideas ever, morphine was used as a cure for opium addictions. Wait, what? Yes, you heard right... it’s like giving a sugar addict sugar to calm his addiction. Morphine is ten times stronger than opium, and the outcome is… well, nothing short of tragic. It certainly didn’t work as they had planned.


Can you believe it started with Bayer Pharmaceutical Company, who began producing heroin commercially? Basically, they repeated their bad idea with something much worse. Free heroin samples were given to morphine addicts to help them break the habit. If you read the newspapers or watch TV, you already know how well that worked out. Heroin has a reputation for being 3 times stronger than morphine, so it was eventually declared illegal (not fast enough).


These drugs make pharmaceutical companies billions of dollars at the expense of your mental and physical health, and often cost lives and destroy families in the process. Manmade, synthetic opioids such as Demerol, fentanyl, and methadone can be deadly because they are very potent. Fentanyl is estimated to be 50 times stronger than heroin, with much of it now coming from Chinese drug companies with little or no purity testing or overseeing, despite the fact that a few drops can kill a large man.

Very quickly, these opiates became more addictive and even more deadly. Especially when combined with a nation that’s spinning out of control and has lost sight of what balance is and how to take care of their bodies, including getting enough sleep.


Most of these dangerous opioid-type drugs are legally produced by pharmaceutical companies in quantities far in excess of legitimate purposes. Seem fishy to you? For example, drug wholesalers shipped 9 million opioid painkillers to a West Virginia pharmacy in a town with only 400 residents. I find it interesting that West Virginia is one of the biggest users of these drugs, don’t you? On top of that, Big Pharma ships opioids into the US from all over the world.

Did you know that natural painkillers and sleep aids are 33% more effective They work faster and are safer, and you won't become addicted; you'll become healthy!

Sometimes, a strong prescription painkiller can be exactly what’s needed when someone is suffering from severe pain, and they can’t move or do what’s needed to get better. Like an acute injury or illness, car accident, or surgery to save a life, for instance. But almost always, these natural painkillers can do the job without all of the deadly and dangerous side effects.

Have you ever seen or read the warnings listed on the tiny print brochure that comes with many over-the-counter painkillers? You'll find that most hammer the liver and kidneys, damage the heart, raise blood pressure, and cause mental distress that’s bad enough to make people take their own lives. The warnings alone should be enough to encourage anyone to try a different way.

If you’re looking for fast, long-term relief, look to Mother Nature! Throw out all of the harmful drugs in your medicine cabinet and give it a makeover by adding these natural approaches instead.
