CBD saved my life – it takes away my pain”

According to The Cannabis Trades Association UK at the time of the launch, there are now 250,000 users of CBD oil across the UK, which is up form the 125,000 recorded this time last year.
The oil is said to be able to treat a variety of problems.


At the end of last year, a World Health Organisation report revealed that it may help successful treat symptoms relating to Alzheimer’s Disease, Parkinson’s Disease, MS, pain, anxiety, depression, cancer and diabetic complications.

Testimonials

Chris says he started feeling better when he dedicated time to the gym, but he saw real changes in his mood when he began taking CBD oil. 

Epilepsy.
I found CBD because of my struggle with anxiety. I’ve always had anxiety attacks, which I used to call “Sophie stress-outs,” but things took a turn during my freshman year. I was lucky enough to get great advice from my friend and start seeing the school psychologist, who helped learn coping strategies and work through my anxious thoughts. I was still, though, having frequent anxiety attacks and going through some dark periods. Something needed to change. I had discussed going on medication with my parents, but none of us seemed very keen on the idea. I’m not sure why I was so afraid of medication. I had seen it do wonders for my friends but I didn’t like the idea of altering my brain chemistry that much.

Eventually, my mom brought up the idea of trying CBD oil. She had friends who used it every day to calm down their anxieties and they said it worked wonders. I was desperate to feel better, so with some trepidation, I decided to try it out.


I didn’t think much about the effect the CBD was having; I tried not to overanalyze it that much. A few months later I realized that I’d only had about two anxiety attacks since I’d started taking CBD every day. I had gone from one or two anxiety attacks every two weeks to one or two every couple of months. I can’t confirm cause and effect, but my only significant lifestyle change was my use of CBD. This was huge for me. Not only was I functioning better, but I hadn’t had to try to navigate insurance to get medication or do anything really drastic.
I will say, though, that the CBD oil doesn’t help me much when I’m already having an anxiety attack. By that time I’ve gone too far. It just lowers my baseline anxiety and helps me get to sleep sometimes when my intrusive thoughts keep me up. Now I recommend CBD to anyone who wants to try something different to help soothe their anxiety. It’s not right for everyone, but it’s easy to try. 


Suffering for 16 years with side effects like heart palpitations, panic attacks, fear, anxiety, insomnia and memory loss, she got off pharmaceuticals and began taking Cannabidiol (CBD). “I noticed many of these negative side effects began to disappear,” 

MDJunction: Forums / fibromyalgia-discussions “CBD oil has changed his life.” I wasn’t sure if I should post this, but seeing the difference it has made for my husband, I want to pass this along. I hate to think of others still suffering because nobody told them about this.

New year – New You

New year is one of my favourite times of the year. It’s like we get to start a fresh and get our teeth stuck into new things, New people to meet, New experiences to have. We have this optimistic view that everything is suddenly going to change and we are going to transform into this new shinier version of ourselves.

Well at least that’s how I view New Year. And even if it doesn’t last I think it’s a great way to start the year. This year I started with a clear head (no hangover) fresh as a daisy, start as I mean to go on. I’ve got my plans and goals and am hoping to achieve them all. I do have more motivation this year than any other. Turning 40..eek.. and still so much I want to do.

Here is a few that may inspire you

Learn a new language.

Been learning spanish for the last 20 years..on and off.. I’m now fluent in Spanglish.. and only I can understand me. .

I realized learning a language is a whole new skill altogether and the process of acquainting with a new language and culture is a totally a mind-opening experience.

Pick up a new hobby.

Beyond just your usual favorite hobbies, is there something new you can pick up? Any new sport you can learn?

Examples are fencing, golf, rock climbing, football, canoeing, or ice skating.

Your new hobby can also be a recreational hobby. For example, pottery, Italian cooking, dancing, wine appreciation, web design, etc.

Learning something new requires you to stretch yourself in different aspects, whether physically, mentally or spiritually

Take up a new course.

Is there any new course you can join? Courses are a great way to gain new knowledge and skills.

It doesn’t have to be a long-term course – seminars or workshops serve their purpose too.

I’ve been to a few workshops and they have helped me gain new insights which I had not considered before.

I love Udemy courses and I’m now on my 15th. They are fun, cheap and a fab way to learn just about anything.

Create an inspirational room.

Your environment sets the mood and tone for you. If you are living in an inspirational environment, you are going to be inspired every day.

So I have been on this journey for the last year or so. It is actually harder than just chucking your wordly goods out. Especially with a family, but it feels amazing and cuts cleaning by more than half and saves me a tonne of time deciding what to wear or searching through a pile of junk to find a bloody bobble. I now have places for everything…. well almost everything.

I have a tonne of other things I want to do this year, climb some munroes, go on a meditation course, take some amazing photos of some wild animals, do more yoga, laugh more, lighten up, volunteer with animals, my list goes on and on.

Right I must go as one of my resolutions was to spend less time on the Internet.

Reflexology – How does it actually work?

How Does Reflexology Work?

Reflexology helps release stress, which in turn helps the body heal and regenerate itself. There are several theories about how this process work.

daily-mail,-reflex-article,-14july2012

Theory #1: Reflexology works with the central nervous system.

illustration of the central nervous system This theory builds on research done in the 1890s by Sir Henry Head and Sir Charles Sherrington, who began to show through their research that a neurological relationship exists between the skin and the internal organs, and that the whole nervous system adjusts to a stimulus.

According to the theory, the reflexologist’s application of pressure to feet, hands, or ears sends a calming message from the peripheral nerves in these extremities to the central nervous system, which in turn signals the body to adjust the tension level. This enhances overall relaxation, brings internal organs and their systems into a state of optimum functioning, and increases blood supply (which brings additional oxygen and nutrients to cells and enhances waste removal). It positively affects the circulatory, respiratory, endocrine, immune, and neuropeptide systems in the body.
