WOW check out these Sizzle slim results

WOW check out Mimzie here is what she share : Well, I began Sizzle Slim about the middle of August or so; I wasn’t expecting much from it; after all, I’m 64 years old, I’m diabetic, on oxygen 24/7 and I’m disabled with a bad back, so I don’t move around much…just can’t because of the pain in my back. I stay in my power chair most of the time, so that negates much exercise.
I began taking the Sizzle Slim after much nagging *ahem* ENCOURAGEMENT from my friend Kerry  Well, YOWZA! The next thing you know, I had dropped 13 lbs! Then 21 lbs! Last week it was a whopping 31 lbs!!! But TODAY! I had gone to the pulmonologist last week about my oxygen, and they weighed me on one of those digital scales. Well, TODAY I had to see an Ear, Nose, Throat specialist, and they weighed me on an old-fashioned scale with the weights that slide…another whopping 7 lbs. GONE!!! i SAID, oH, no! tHAT SCALE CAN’T BE RIGHT! It must need to be calibrated! The nurse got huffy and said, Ma’am! That scale is calibrated on a weekly basis! It IS accurate! I about fell over!!! Officially, I have shot past my original goal by 1.5 lbs!!! Needless to say, I’m just going to keep going until I stop losing weight, since I still have a good distance to go yet until I can get into my wedding dress! I’d like to wear that down the aisle next year for my 20th anniversary when my husband and I renew our wedding vows on November 7th in 2018! won’t that be a hoot and a half! Who knows? At this rate, I just might make it!

“Migraines virtually gone! Hempworx CBD oil changed my life! So here is my story. I have been suffering with migraines since I was in first grade. I have recent headache logs saved in my phone for a Migraine Doctor and my General Physician. My logs show anywhere from 12-16 headaches, most of them migraines a month. After taking CBD oil 6 to 8 drops under my tongue in the morning and at night, I now only have 2-3 headaches a month!!!! and they are very mild and I am able to function and go back to work with in a few hours. In the past I would be out for a day or two with a migraine headache and not able to function. This my friend is life altering results for me! I have stopped taking 3 migraine medications and my anxiety pill.

Additional results are, I sleep more sound and virtually have no pain after going to the skatepark and skateboarding for hours. (age 45) The next day I wake up pain free where I used to have aches, pains and locked up! I also vape it when I get stressed. I have been studying CBD like crazy since I started taking it 5/29/2017. Why didn’t I learn about this sooner? Have fantastic day! Jerry”

CBD oil Highlights

CBD has become the rage right now, for good reason… This power house plant has health benefits that have been known to be useful since the beginning of time. But with the stigma of what the THC part of the hemp cannabis plant and how the THC effects the body the hemp plant has been deemed the devils weed.

We have decided it’s about time to get over this stigma and help educate people as to what this plant truly has to offer the human body.

Cannabidiol (CBD) came out to the world in a big way after this simple plant chemical stopped an epileptic seizure in its tracks on U.S. national television. In the time since, many enthusiasts have realized that this miracle compound can stop spasms, calm anxiety, and soothe those in chronic pain. But, what is CBD and how does it work? How is it different from THC? To help you become more familiar with the
cannabinoid here is everything you need to know about CBD.

What is cannabidiol (CBD)?
Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of the most prevalent chemical compounds in the cannabis plant. Unlike the more famous molecule, tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), CBD is completely nonpsychoactive.

Don’t expect to get “high” off of this organic chemical, however. CBD is all relaxation without intoxication.
While CBD still has an effect on your body, consuming CBD by itself isn’t going to send you on the cerebral adventure associated with THC. For decades, medical professionals and the general public overlooked CBD because psychoactive cannabis took center stage.

Let’s take a look at some of the health benefits CBD has to offer… And I say.. just some….

Restoring Natural Wellbeing and Mental Health
CBD Oil helps to restore happiness, create positive mood and overall health and wellbeing. Working as an antioxidant reducing swelling and inflammation throughout the body.

Mental Enhancements and Improvements
CBD Oil can be one of the best ways to boost cognition, memory and mood, actually making you feel more prepared and mentally sharper. Our CBD Oil can actually help you feel more prepared for school or work situations and improve your overall level of functioning in these areas.

Seizure Improvement and Pain Reduction
CBD Oil helps to alleviate seizures, physical pain and the problematic neural interferences that cause seizures to happen, also removes the physical pain and inflammation and acts on the central nervous system to influence the brains response to pain.

Improved Mood for Sleeping Soundly
One of the worst causes of insomnia is a racing mind or anxious thoughts while trying to fall asleep. Since cannabidiol promotes positive mood through improved serotonin signaling as well as better dopamine levels, CBD for insomnia is undoubtedly one of the most effective ways to quickly get to sleep and stay that way.

PTSD
PTSD is typically a serious case of stress and anxiety so bad that many people never find relief. There are not as many effective medications available for this condition making it extremely debilitating for many sufferers. However, CBD Oil is very good at treating stress and anxiety.

Schizophrenia
A study done in Germany showed that Schizophrenia, a very debilitating mental condition was effectively treated using CBD oil and proved to be just as effective as the antipsychotic drug.

Multiple Sclerosis
MS degenerates motor and muscle capability and CBD was shown in just 10 days to be effective at reversing a great deal of the damaging effects.

Antioxidant Benefits
Undoubtedly, antioxidants have immense health benefits for the body and especially the role of Vitamin C and Vitamin E, however, you should know that CBD oil supplements contain more effective antioxidants than Vitamin C or E.

Due to the powerful antioxidant benefits, CBD has the ability to combat diseases like chronic inflammation and protect the brain cells from the reactive oxygen species.

Digestive Aid
A healthy appetite is vital to a healthy body, especially when the body is healing from illness. Some illnesses decrease the appetite to the point of preventing the body from healing itself. CBD stimulates appetite, according to the National Cancer Institute. In the human body, CBDs bind to cannabinoid receptors in the body. Scientists believe these receptors play an important role in regulating feeding behavior. CBDs stimulate appetite when they dock onto these receptors.

CBD also eases nausea and vomiting. This is especially helpful for individuals enduring chemotherapy and other treatments for serious diseases.

Analgesic
CBDs bind to CB1 receptors in the body to relieve pain. CBD also has an anti-inflammatory effect that reduces swelling.

Anxiety Relief
CBD may alleviate severe social anxiety. Generalized Social Anxiety Disorder, or SAD, is one of the most common forms of anxiety disorders that impair quality of life. Some consumers complain of increased social anxiety after marijuana use but this may be due to low levels of CBD proportionate to the higher levels of THC.
In a 2011 study, scientists wanted to study the effects of CBD on people with SAD. The scientists selected 24 people with this condition who had never received treatment for SAD then divided participants into two groups. One group received 600 mg of CBD while the control group received a placebo. The scientists then asked study participants to take part in a simulated public speaking test while researchers measured blood pressure, heart rate and other measurements of physiological and psychological stress.

The CBD group showed significantly reduced anxiety, cognitive impairment and discomfort in their speech performance. In comparison, those in the placebo group presented higher anxiety, cognitive impairment and discomfort.
According to the National Institute of Mental Health, approximately 15 million adults in the United States have social phobia and about 6.8 million have a generalized anxiety disorder. Traditional treatment usually involves counseling and medications. Treatment with CBD may be better than anti-depressants because it acts quickly and does not cause side effects or withdrawal symptoms.

Cancer Spread
The National Cancer Institute details several studies into the anti-tumor effects of CBD. One study in mice and rats suggest CBDs “may have a protective effect against the development of certain types of tumors.” CBDs may do this by inducing tumor cell death, inhibiting cancer cell growth, and by controlling and inhibiting the spread of cancer cells.

One study by California Pacific Medical Center suggests CBD “turns off” the gene involved in the spread of breast cancer. These scientists found CBD inhibits ID-1, an action that prevents cancer cells from traveling long distances to distant tissues.

Antipsychotic
CBD relieves psychotic symptoms associated with schizophrenia, according to research by University of Cologne in Germany. Schizophrenia affects about 1.1 percent of the population, or approximately 2.4 million adults in the United States.

CBD continues to surprise medical researchers with the variety of common health benefits it provides. An increasing number of scientists, physicians and consumers are learning about these health benefits and incorporating CBD into a healthy lifestyle plan.

Remember with this new whirlwind of CBD there are many CBD manufactures and products out there on the market that are not what they say they are. We have tested this theory many times over by ordering from 15 different companies and testing their products and found most of them to be nothing but garbage, we wasted good money on product that did nothing, in other words we were bamboozled.

CBD is a supplement so there are no real regulations for it. You are taking the manufactures word it is what they say it is. We found this producer (from the ground up to the manufacturing processes) out of Colorado- well needless to say we’re excited to be a part of this growing company. We have invested our money into helping them produce a high quality, organic, full spectrum Phytocannabinoid-Rich- (PCR) Zero THC hemp oil, to truly help people. We have visited this farm personally and have found it to be an impeccable, state of the art facility. We are committed to keeping our prices as low as possible to help your pocket book along with your health.

Pumpkin Puree

Pumpkin Puree

It’s PUMPKIN TIME of year again! Be prepared with FRESH pumpkin puree to make all those yummy pumpkin recipes you keep seeing 😀 You can’t can pumpkin BUT you can freeze it and it freezes very well. Aside from the obvious use in pumpkin pie, it comes in handy for pumpkin bread, pumpkin muffins, pumpkin dip, pumpkin cheese cake, pumpkin smoothies, you get the idea 🙂 This is so easy to do and so much cheaper than the canned stuff and tastes way better too 🙂

 

I did up 4 small pumpkins and got 24 cups of puree out of those 4

 

Cut pumpkins into quarters and clean the insides. KEEP the seeds cause you are gonna want to roast those 😀

 

Place in a baking dish rind side up with about 1 inch of water in the pan and bake in the oven at 350 for 45 to 60 min. Check every so often cause when the fork goes through easily they are done.

 

Let them cool enough that you can handle it then peel the rind off use a spoon and scoop it or a knife and remove from the back. Which ever you are comfortable with.

 

Cut into chunks and place in a food processor or blender. If pumpkin is dry add a tablespoon or two of water. Process till smooth and all strings and pumpkin pieces are gone

 

I place mine in freezer baggies I put 1 to 2 cups in each one
