Painkillers -How does someone become addicted?
Medication including painkillers, depletes the body of magnesium.
Other things like caffeine, alcohol and fizzy drinks also deplete the body of magnesium.
Magnesium is also lacking in our food supply because the soil is depleted.
Depleted magnesium levels in the body cause among other things, muscle pain from spasms and cramps. Therefore the very medication you are taking to help your pain, is the cause of more pain.
