Devin Burke, Sleep Science Academy founder and your coaching guide to a deep, peaceful night’s rest, elaborates on the dark side of sleeping pills.
Sleeping medications are a huge component within the pharmaceutical industry today because so many people are experiencing issues with their sleep.
You may be watching this because you are having sleep challenges and taking sleep medications.
I’m glad you’re here because we are going to address the problems sleeping pills can pose and how to eliminate their use to solve your sleep issue versus treating the symptoms.
What Is the Problem with Sleeping Pills?
Number one, there is a link between sleeping pills and dementia. Benzodiazepine, a standard sleeping pill prescription, has been shown to increase dementia by as much as 50% in older adults in numerous studies.
These findings are a huge problem and a great big red flag.
Dementia creates significant challenges, and using sleeping pills can increase your chances of this condition by 50%, not to mention all their other side effects.
There is a long list of side effects depending on the medication you take. Lunesta, clonazepam, and others are popular sleep prescriptions that carry a laundry list of potential side effects.
Plus, they can be toxic.
Secondly, in many cases, prescription sleep medications can become addicting and habit-forming, which may lead to an overdose and the potential for requiring their use for the rest of your life.
You will eventually reach a point where you realize these medications don’t work and are not helping with your insomnia.
Initially, it can seem like they are working, but with ongoing use, you will find you need to take more or find different types to achieve the same effect, eventually arriving at a place where they no longer work.
Sleeping Pills Can Only Treat the Symptoms
Prescription medications may provide some relief for a short time by merely treating your symptoms, but they do nothing to address the root cause of insomnia.
There is no way to eliminate insomnia except by identifying and treating its root cause.
After working with hundreds of individuals to transform their sleep, we find that insomnia’s root cause is the psychological elements of stress and anxiety about sleep.
It may also be about your sleep environment and other physical factors, making it essential to address all three of these elements: the psychological, physical, and environmental elements that shape our sleep. By addressing all three, we can bring what is out of balance back into alignment, ultimately achieving the complete rest and sleep you deserve.
Insomnia is a significant challenge requiring much effort and commitment to overcome. Many reach out in desperation, opting for sleeping pills as a convenient form of relief, which unfortunately often disappoints and can become yet another serious challenge to experiencing adequate rest.
While prescription medications and over-the-counter solutions can be tempting, they can only mask the symptoms and will never treat the root cause of insomnia.
