Why Use a Natural Muscle Relaxer

Back pain and back spasm is probably one of the most common reasons a muscle relaxer, also known as muscle relaxant, is prescribed by a doctor. Some of the prescription muscle relaxers are Soma, Skelaxin, Flereril, Norflex and even Valium.

relax alreadyThe problem with the prescription muscle relaxants is that they have many side-effects and often leave you feeling drowsy or groggy. In addition, if you happen to have an alcoholic beverage, the combination can be very dangerous.

Why Use a Natural Muscle Relaxer?

That brings us to the use of natural muscle relaxers. They are made with one or more natural ingredients. Usually these ingredients have a long history of being used by thousands of people for back spasm and pain. One of these ingredients is Valerian, an herbal relaxer that has been used for hundreds of years and by countless people. Valerian is one of the ingredients found in Formula 303 and Relax Already. For a list of all the ingredients in Relax Already, click here.

The main reason a natural muscle relaxer is a better choice over a prescription is that there are usually minimal or no side-effects. Of course everyone reacts different to even natural herbs, so it's often a good idea to first try it in your home and not to drive or use machinery while taking even a natural muscle relaxer.

Avoid Muscle Relaxant Side Effects - Use Natural Muscle Relaxers

Muscle relaxants are often prescribed to prevent the stiffness, pain, and muscle spasms. Although the muscle relaxants do not cure the injury, they relax the muscles to help stop muscle spasms that cause the discomfort. Muscle relaxants are also used to treat the fatigue, stiffness, and aches that are caused by fibromyalgia.

Doctors often prescribe muscle relaxants along with exercise, physical therapy, rest, and other treatments.  Muscle relaxants may provide relief, but it should not replace other forms of therapy.  However, prescription muscle relaxants may have side effects that leave people feeling drowsy or drizzy. Some report confusion, lightheadedness, sluggishness when they use muscle relaxers.

The truth of the matter is muscle relaxants affect the central nervous system. That’s why users of these drugs are advised to not to drive or operate machinery until they know how the drug affects them.

Some people who have other medical conditions must also be careful when they take muscle relaxants. For example, metaxalone may result to false test results when testing for sugar in the urine. People suffering from epilepsy may have more seizures if they’reou taking muscle relaxants.

Muscle relaxants may also affect people with allergies or those who are breastfeeding. People who have kidney disease, who have suffered from heart troubles such as a heart attack or irregular heartbeats, or an overactive thyroid gland need to consult their doctors when they are planning on taking muscle relaxants.  Others who have hepatitis or liver disease and glaucoma may have problems when taking muscle relaxants.  If you have suffered from drug or alcohol addiction, you must also not take muscle relaxants without consulting a doctor.

The following are the most common side effects of prescription muscle relaxants:
•    Vision changes, double vision or blurred vision
•    Lightheadedness
•    Dizziness
•    Dry mouth
•    Drowsiness
Other side effects that are less common:
•    Stomach cramps
•    Pain
•    Vomiting
•    Nausea
•    Constipation
•    Diarrhea
•    Clumsiness
•    Unsteadiness
•    Hiccups
•    Confusion
•    Nervousness
•    Irritability
•    Flushed or red face
•    Trembling
•    Weakness
•    Heartburn
•    Headache
•    Sleep problems

Some people experience more serious side effects, but these are very rare. Some have difficulty in breathing with their faces getting swollen. Others faint and experience irregular heartbeats, fever, rash, itching, hives, and stinging, burning, red or bloodshot eyes. Some report unusual dreams or thoughts.

Another muscle relaxant called chlorzoxazone caused serious liver problems in some people. This reaction is quite rare but if anyone takes this drug and experience fever, loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting, fatigue, dark urine, yellow skin or eyes, and pain in the abdomen especially in the upper right area should go to the doctor at once.

Prescription muscle relaxants may also interact with other drugs, so you should consult your doctor when taking them. If you’re concerned about the side effects of these drugs, you might want to consider natural muscle relaxers such as Formula 303 which has no side effects.

Muscle Spasms - Natural Muscle Spasm Remedy

Many of us, young and old, experience muscle spasms at one point in our life. When it happens, the pain can become so unbearable that we’d take any medicine within reach to make the pain disappear. With so many available drugs today, we can easily be tempted to buy anything without thinking of its long term effects in our body.

At this point, let us try to understand muscle spasms in simple terms without using any medical jargon. Muscle spasms, also called cramps, occur when there is an involuntary contraction of muscles in your body. This happens when the muscles are too tired and overused. Try sitting with your legs crossed for a long period. That painful feeling after shifting to another position is what we call as muscle spasms.

According medical experts, loss of fluid and energy in our muscle can also lead to spasms. When the regular supply of water, glucose, magnesium, sodium, and other minerals are insufficient, our muscles become so irritated that any slight movement can result to pain and discomfort. So this only tells us that proper nutrition also plays a big factor when it comes to this problem. That should remind us also to be more conscious of our choices especially when it comes to artificial muscle pain relievers.
When we take certain pain relievers, our main goal is either to lessen the pain or to get rid of it instantly, right? But we usually do not think about what kinds of chemicals present in those medicines. Did you know that chemical-based drugs contain harmful properties which can alter or, worse, damage our body? This fact should not be ignored because this can seriously lead to health problems in the near future.

But the good news is that there is a natural muscle spasm remedy available nowadays. By this, I mean there are natural remedies for muscle spasms which are made using natural plant extracts instead of harmful chemicals so that our bodies can safely absorb it without causing any damage. The best thing about these kinds of relaxants is its ability to help you deal with your pain physically and emotionally. That’s because you need not worry too much about any side effects. These are made from herbs like Valerian, a famous plant in Asia and Europe known for its sedative power and anti-inflammatory properties.  It is absolutely effective and perfectly safe for you.

I never really thought that I could get these natural remedies for muscle spasms until I came across products like Formula 303. I finally realized that it is very possible to deal with my pain and spasm and take care of my body at the same time. Formula 303 contains herbs like Valerian as I mentioned earlier and Passiflora, another herbal plant which is widely used as a natural tranquilizer. After a stressful bout with muscle spasms, I am sure you totally need something to help you feel relaxed and fall asleep. You can only get that from these natural muscle spasm relievers such as Formula 303.

Natural Muscle Relaxers

Do you have a bad back or a pulled muscle? Chances are, you are taking in pain relievers and muscle relaxers that contain chemicals. While these may be effective, you can also consider natural muscle relaxers (also known as natural muscle relaxants) that work as effectively without the side effects that these chemicals produce.

Most natural muscle relaxers contain herbs that for years have been proven natural muscle relaxers. The following are herbs that are most common in natural muscle relaxers.

Valerian. This herb has been known throughout Asia and Europe as a natural muscle relaxer. Its sleep-inducing effects affect the central nervous system and gives a feeling of calm and well-being. Aside from that, valerian is used for pain relief because it has anti-inflammatory properties. Valerian also reduces muscle spasms that result from tension and cause pain.

Passiflora. Extracts from the passion flower is a natural muscle relaxer. When taken in the right concentration, it can work its effects as a purely natural tranquilizer. Passiflora also can work its benefits as a natural muscle relaxant without the addictive effects that chemical-based tranquilizers have.

I've found a combination of the valerian and passiflora in Formula 303 that works fantastic as a muscle relaxant. Of course, taking muscle relaxers does not mean that you won’t have to consult your doctor. Always remember that severe muscle pain, if it persists for more than a few days and cannot be treated by natural muscle relaxers might be a sign of another serious condition. In these cases, consulting your health provider is a better option.
