Do You Have Trouble Swallowing Pills?
Do you struggle with swallowing pills? It seems like swallowing pills is a necessary part of life for the majority of us. Whether it is our daily vitamins or our daily medicines or medicines when we are sick, at one time or another most of us have to swallow pills. I have always struggled to swallow pills. My whole life this has been an issue. I always thought I would out grow it because most children can’t swallow pills and most adults do not have a problem. Right? Well it didn’t work for me. I would always feel like the pills were getting caught in my throat and they would start gagging me. I hated having to take any kind of pill. I would avoid having to swallow pills if there was any way possible. I was given all kinds of advice. Put the pills in applesauce. Break them open and put them in pudding. Just swallow it! It’s all in your head! Nothing helped. I still struggled every single time I had to swallow a pill.
I cannot believe that I have lived this long and nobody has ever told me about this trick to swallowing pills. It has changed my life! I am so excited about this that I just had to share it with everyone! It is so simple. If you are swallowing any kind of tablet or pill that is solid you put the pill in your mouth with a little bit of water and tilt your head slightly back and swallow. The pill will sink and go straight down. If you have to swallow a soft capsule, put the capsule in your mouth with a little bit of water and tilt your head down, with your chin toward your chest and swallow! It really works! The soft capsule will float to the top and when you swallow it goes straight down and you cannot even tell it is there! I promise. Take it from someone who has a pill swallowing phobia! I have even been able to swallow two or three capsules all at the same time with this method! I am not exaggerating when I say it has changed my world! I no longer dread taking vitamins or medicines. I only wish that I had learned about these tricks years ago. It would have made my life so much easier and I would probably be a lot healthier since I would have taken my vitamins and minerals on a much more consistent basis. Bring it on world! I am now armed with my tricks for swallowing pills and no longer have to stress about what size and shape any pill is that I am prescribed. Life is great!
