Why on earth would Michael Jackson willingly let Propofol (also known as Diprivan) be administered to him just to induce sleep? This drug is meant to be used in the operating theatre, to put patients into an unconscious state before surgery begins. It is delivered through a drip, which means that a needle has to be stuck in you. Why would anybody in their right minds want to go through this procedure if it wasn’t absolutely necessary? There are many other ways – safer and much more pleasant – to beat insomnia.
I’ve been put under for surgery a couple of times in my life, and I can tell you it’s not a nice experience. The drug certainly knocks you out quickly, but waking up always made me nauseous. Each time, I felt like I was in a deep, dark hole, from which I was forcibly being dragged out of. My mind would feel groggy and heavy, and my body would feel like it weighed a ton. When I was roused from this deep state of artificial slumber, or rather unconsciousness, I would be disoriented and the room would seem to sway.
Imagine regularly putting yourself through such a dreadful experience at home! If you must take a pill to help you get to sleep, make sure it’s completely safe and will really help you to enjoy natural sleep. As far as I’m concerned, sleeping pills and drugs like Diprivan / Propofol are an absolute no-no. Practically all drugs have side effects, so I avoid them like the plague.
There are all kinds of commonsensical ways to soothe yourself to sleep. Taking melatonin, an antioxidant as well as an anti-aging health supplement, just 30 minutes before bedtime, is a safe option for those who are still wide awake when it’s time to sleep. Neways’ Megatonin can help your body set its internal clock to snooze. It contains safe ingredients like melatonin, gamma aminobutyric acid (GABA), and L-Theanine. Melatonin, a hormone as well as an antioxidant naturally produced by the body, supports the body’s sleep-wake cycle. GABA is a naturally occurring neurotransmitter in the brain, while L-Theanine is a beneficial phytonutrient found naturally in green tea.
Natural healing, natural wellness – it’s the way to go for a good night’s sleep. Don’t ever put your life in danger.
