Finding What Works

My journey has been a long one! This year I tried different things and found some very helpful. I live with chronic Pain and I am constantly researching holistic( mind, body, and spirit) healing modalities. Coming from an Ayurvedic trained background I know that every single person is a little different. However, I would still like to share my successes. I began Cryotherapy a month ago. I am still amazed at how much it helps me heal and how it brings down the inflammation(pain)in my body. I began an amazing supplement product line. It is the highest quality I have ever come across (and I have tried many!)! I still eat non inflammatory meals. It is vital that I make my food from fresh live sources! I continue to meditate and feed my spirit. It can be hard when in severe pain and dealing with fatigue to stay in this solution. On those days or weeks I reach out to my inner circle of friends and ask for help. This was something that was very hard for me in the beginning. As I treat myself like I would treat my best friend, I have grown tremendously in inner peace, self love and compassion and I have something positive to give.
I know the challenges of experiencing pain day after day, but I must continue to train my mind to pay attention to my attitude, self talk, and to stay in gratitude! Today, my pain experience does NOT dictate my internal experience or what kind of day I am going to have!

ALL CBD IS NOT THE SAME

HEY Everyone,
I have been off-line due to medical stuff and family.

Here I am. I need to say something important!
I do not want you to have to go through what I went through. Please due your research I just had to write:
Please guys and gals do your own research! Industries are taking advantage of the consumers of CBD.
A lot of the stuff out there is complete crap!!!! It’s awful. One lady was showing her cbd oil and it was the last ingredient on the bottle. Which means it had very little cbd in it. One lady was buying something that has NO CBD in it!
Do your homework!
Or ask a friend who knows about it. Don’t waste your money! The healing is real! But many of these products are NOT
It took me a few tries and learning to finally find an awesome product!

All CBD is NOT the same.

In the last few years I have gotten very into the research of CBD. I have been following the progress and the studies and the new new findings. The marijuana and hemp plant are truly miraculous! In 1992 When it was discovered that the human body haS its on endocannabinoid system, great healing discoveries began. It is so exciting because basically this system is the system that creates naturally occurring neurotransmitters that help all the other systems work better together. So, wherever your system is imbalanced your body now will have the support it needs in getting back into balance. That is why it is helping so many different things: Autism, anxiety, sleep disorders, depression, ADHD, Alzheimer’s and more.
In 2018 congress passed a new Farm Bill legalizing hemp.”It allows hemp cultivation broadly, not simply pilot programs for studying market interest in hemp-derived products. It explicitly allows the transfer of hemp derived products across state lines for commercial or other purposes. It also puts no restriction on the sale, transport or possession of hemp derived products”
(Hudak, John FIXGOV) .Unfortunately, this opened up the market and production to many. CBD started coming out of the woodwork. NOW you DO NOT KNOW what you are getting unless you research it. There are products out there that have all sorts of fillers and chemicals and a tiny percent of CBD. Do not be fooled by the big numbers that say !000 mg. If you would like info on some of the best quality CBD products please feel free to contact me.
KNOW WHAT YOU ARE PUTTING IN OR ON YOUR BODY!

More Solutions for Pain

In the last month I have been wanting to share some experiences. I have had what I call a “bad pain month”. I have had to use all of my tools! I have gone back to drinking daily “fire water”. (ginger, and turmeric tea steamed for hours) . I add Manuka honey because of the antibiotic affects.
I was reminded that there are two things that exacerbate pain: Stress and a toxic environment. A toxic environment includes people. It is not just about literal toxicity in the food you eat and the solutions you use to clean your body and your home.
So, once again I had to go back to my basics!
1. Drink lots of tea. 2. Detoxify,
3. Keep it simple, 4. Eat healthy and eat clean, 5. Be kind and gentle to yourself! 6. Help someone else if you can. 7. Oh, and allow yourself to have a good cry! Sometimes it is a good cry that can recharge your battery! Living with pain is not easy so give yourself a break.

CBD

This is a big topic. About three months ago I started a new CBD product. One I take internally. I am so excited about this products. The horrible arthritic pain I dealt with daily is practically gone.
CBD is becoming a big thing. It’s the new buzz word on health. Therefore, many people are taking advantage of this. It is important to find a quality product. I do a lot of research on everything I try. This product is unique in the fact that it is water soluble and heat is not used in the extraction process. The whole plant is used. If you are interested in finding out more please feel free to message me.
I have been researching a lot about the medical properties of the flower and the cannabinoid system. This is real! There is amazing medical research about the healing abilities of the Cannabis plant. Strains matter! How it is grown matters. Please do your homework. There is a lot of fake stuff out there.
I have been making my own topical product from scratch for awhile now. The more research I do the better my product has become. I am excited to see pain relief among my friends! Living with chronic pain sucks! Get into the solution and you will find natural ways to help your pain.
Love and healing

Inflammation

The last few weeks I have been following an anti-inflammation diet: Chia pudding in the AM. This has chia seeds, goji berries, hemp milk or coconut water, a few dates, a pineapple stem, macadamia nuts and sometimes some cocoa. For dinner asparagus with lots of organic black sesame seeds. I munch on homemade Quinoa pita bread with sesame seeds, cumin seeds, mushroom powder, garlic and rosemary. I drink very strong ginger/turmeric water. Everything is organic. The difference in my pain has been tremendous. I take the time to learn about foods and which foods support healing in my body. Of course we are all a little different so I try different things. Sticking with the anti-inflammatory foods has changed my daily experience! Toxicity in the body makes pain worse so I have taken measures to detoxify my home. I use shampoo and cleaning product by a company that use natural plants and no toxicity. Do you know the average woman is exposed to 168 unique chemicals a day. So detoxify your home and eat well. PAYB ATTENTION TO WHAT YOU PUT ON AND IN YOUR BODY! I have survived a few life threatening diseases and 26 surgeries. The body is amazing if we take care of it!

Food Heals

This week I have truly been reminded of the amazing power of the foods we eat. I have been living with chronic pain since 2009. It has been a hard battle. As Western medicine has saved my life it has also failed me in the chronic pain challenge. In these 10 years I have found things that have helped me get through another day, month, or year. There are many holistic modalities of healing that have saved my sanity. Being in pain every day is exhausting to the mind and spirit. I had to do a lot of my own foot work and research. This is not an easy task because there is so much mis-information being given to us. I am blessed to have a sister who is a Dr in Chinese medicine and a genius in holistic remedies. This week I have gone back to using one of my sisters first prescription for me: FOOD. Three weeks ago I began cooking for anti-inflammation. All my meals have been organic, and cooked and made from scratch using foods that fight inflammation. This week I am reaping the benefits. It is hard work, but IT IS WORTH IT! I will often post some of the specific things that have helped me!
One of my favorite cook books is “Food-Healing Cooking with Qi”, written by Qigong Practitioner Jeff Primack.
I hope the things I post help you!
