CBD and Sugar Addiction

Liz shares: SUGAR ADDICTION – Getting a grip

If you are suffering or know people who are this is for you. This is a long testimony…please bear with me.

I want to say I am extremely grateful for the latest thing I am seeing with the 750 CBD drops. The first week it was sleeping and hot flashes, and that was a miracle. Now after 3 weeks, my sugar cravings and carb cravings have totally gone.

I am a sugar addict. To the max. I struggle with it and have for the last 20 years. I have gone off it for up to 3 years, and then just given in and then it is an uphill battle to get off it again. This last bout was the worst. My hubby and I went on a 12 day cruise last April for our 40th anniversary, and it was an all inclusive gluttony fest. And I fell off the wagon and the wagon ran over me. The past year I have gained 30 pounds and been unable to get this under control. I know what to do but I was becoming hopeless.

Enter CBD. This past week, about 4 days ago, I noticed that my cravings weren’t there. Just gone. I just kind of was shocked. The past 4 days I have noticed that my mental state has totally changed. I stopped thinking about food. I stopped thinking every hour of the day about what I wish I could have. I have gone to the grocery store, walked down the candy aisle and just looked and nothing. NOTHING!

If you are a skinny person you won’t get this. But for all of us who fight this, it is so hard. Food is socially acceptable. Churches encourage gluttony in pot lucks. It’s everywhere. You can’t escape.

Sugar creates more dopamine in your brain than cocaine.

What I realized after looking and looking for studies on CBD or cannabidiol and dopamine, is that CBD seems to regulate dopamine. It stabilizes it. It interacts with our cannabinoid receptors and just calms the whole system down. That’s why it works on opiate addictions, and on other addictions. I would venture to say it would work on sexual addictions and pornography addictions too. Addictive substances cause your dopamine to skyrocket, and when they crash you are jonesing for a fix of whatever it is you are addicted to. If your dopamine doesn’t crash, then you don’t crave. If your dopamine doesn’t skyrocket then the cycle is broken.

I am extremely grateful for CBD, and feel it is an answer to prayer for me and others. My life is looking different right now and my mental state is calm. My thought processes are calm. Thank you, God for this. I can’t even tell you how grateful I am.

It’s like my brain got off the food obsession freeway and got on a highway going another direction. It’s awesome. It’s a miracle. Thankful.

How Does Cannabidiol Affect Sleep and Insomnia?

 

Some of us who have begun to take an interest in hemp extracts might be wondering how CBD and hemp may affect sleep. Would it make me sleep too much, due to its often calming properties, or could it help if I have insomnia?

While nearly all of us have had sleeplessness, which only lasts one or two nights; insomnia is much worse, where sufferers regularly have three or more sleepless nights weekly.

It affects one billion people worldwide. It’s estimated that half of the seniors are affected. You may believe that you are just tired and cranky, but this problem might also raise the risk of cardiovascular disease, obesity and diabetes.

While many cases of insomnia still don’t have any known cause, the number one known trigger is stress. In a study of people with Social Anxiety Disorder, therapy with CBD significantly reduced anxiety, cognitive impairment and discomfort whilst raising alertness. Compared to people without anxiety, individuals had no real differences in discomfort, alertness, impairment or negative self-statements.

Apart from CBD and hemp, exercise such as swimming oComplications of insomnia. r running, meditation and eating healthier helps to manage stress. Some medicines, depending on the individual, can also aid sleep. These include lemon balm, valerian and chamomile. But when those don’t provide enough positive changes, the most frequent next step is to reach for prescription pharmaceuticals.

Although they are popular, a study by the National Institutes for Health found that sleeping pills add 11 minutes only to sleep on average, although they do seem to shorten the time it takes to get to sleep. They can also have serious side effects, sending people to the emergency room, especially in cases of Infection. Some, like the benzodiazepine class (e.g. Valium), are highly addictive and can kill.

In 2013, benzodiazepines caused 30 percent of lethal drug overdoses in the USA.

In a pre-clinical study, researchers found that administering 10-20 micrograms of CBD into specific regions of the brain increased wakefulness and inhibited slow-wave and REM sleep. CBD increased alpha brain waves, which boost alertness, and suppressed delta waves, which are needed for deep sleep.

This was only a pre-clinical study, but with methods that do not match real-life usage — no one injects cannabinoids right in their brains. Human patients have in fact reported that sleep can be improved by use of CBD-rich hemp extracts. Despite this,15mg of CBD appeared to raise alertness in a study that was with humans, as it improved “active and awake activity in the mind’.

On the other hand, a few other elements of hemp may aid sleep, like the terpene beta-myrcene. Linalool is another terpene that can have properties that affect sleep. Because of variations in each consumer, it’s important to find out when it comes to insomnia, what is ideal for you. CBD-rich hemp oil may help alone, in combination with other natural remedies and lifestyle changes, or not at all; everyone is different.

For now, someone saying definitively that it should always help may not be an accurate statement.   It’s been argued that much like marijuana use, the effect of CBD will vary depending on the person greatly.  Some folks report less motivation and energy when consuming such things, whereas others experience the opposite effect.

You may want to try CBD for yourself as a way to test this out – if it helps you-you may also be surprised about the other benefits CBD can offer. Check out testimonials from other’s who are getting sleep now they are using HempWorx here

Benefits of Giving CBD Oil to Pets and Dogs

CBD Benefits Dogs in the Same Way as People Suggests Research

CBD oil, also known as hemp oil, is made from extracts of Cannabis. CBD Oil is often used by people to address pain caused by chronic illnesses. CBD is a compound found in Cannabis plants. Unlike THC (the psychoactive compound found in Cannabis), CBD does not show psychoactive properties. Hence, your typical CBD oil is free from THC and is mostly manufactured from Hemp and not Marijuana. Just like humans, research has shown that CBD oil can have beneficial effects on dogs. Mentioned below are some of the potential benefits of treating your dog with CBD oil:

  • Provides relaxation without intoxication As mentioned above, CBD oil is free from THC and hence does not provide the “high” most people associate with Cannabis. It does, however, relax the body and can help your pet calm down without getting intoxicated. This is especially helpful if your pet has been disturbed by something in an unknown environment or is feeling incredibly anxious among new people.
  • Helps with anxiety and phobias- Your dog can suffer from certain phobias or have separation anxiety. It has been found that CBD oil can be effective for dealing with stress and panic. As per a study conducted in 2010, CBD oil can help deal with anxiety attacks in public places if your dog is shy or can help him/her sleep at night.
  • Treatment of acute illnesses- It has been found by vets that CBD oil is effective in the treatment of acute conditions like sprains, muscle strain, torn ligaments, bone fractures, and so on. It has also been effective in treating post-operative pain and reduces swellings and stiffness. Animal studies have shown that CBD oil can help in the prevention of colitis (Inflammatory bowel disease).
  • CBD reduces pain- CBD is actually being considered as a serious pain-relieving medication and is under further research. CBD is extremely effective for dealing with nerve-related pains and inflammations. For dogs, it has been known to help with pains due to intestinal inflammations and pancreatitis. This study published in the European Journal of pain used animal models to better understand its pain-relieving properties, especially those caused by arthritis and inflammations.
  • CBD oil can help with neurodegenerative conditions- CBD Oil has been known to protect the nervous system and help dogs suffering from degenerative myelopathy. CBD has shown great results in dealing with spine and nerve-related conditions. CBD oil has also shown beneficial effects on older dogs by protecting their brains from toxicity. See this study for more details.
  • CBD helps with appetite and nausea- If your pet dog is struggling to eat or is having a hard time keeping his/her food down, then CBD might be of help here. It has been reported by the National Cancer Institute that CBD helps in increasing appetite and can be of immense help in maintaining your dog’s appetite during illness.
  • CBD helps in improving cardiovascular health- Studies have shown a direct link between CBD and heart health. CBD can help in dealing with injuries from damaged blood vessels and help control irregular heart rates. It can dilate blood vessels to help with pain associated with stress and anxiety.

CBD oil is a safe way to provide your dog supplement and medication. Since it is THC-free and mostly made from hemp, it is legal in all the 50 states in the United States for dogs and humans. CBD has shown very limited to no side effects and the studies are currently being conducted to understand its benefits better. It can be a useful herb for your pet during stressful times. However, before giving your dog a dosage of CBD oil, verify the originality and contents of the product. Make sure that the product is organic and is free from additives.

Bursitis of the Shoulder – Natural Healing Methods

What is Bursitis aka Frozen Shoulder?

Bursitis is an inflammation of the bursa, which is a lubricating barrier that separates the bones in a moving joint. They exist all over the body, wherever two bones meet and rub together during movement. When the bursa become injured, they swell up, causing stiffness and pain in that joint. The problem with bursitis as opposed to other types of joint injury, is that it tends to get worse with exercise, rather than better. For this reason, people often end up with a joint that becomes completely immobile the longer they try to ‘work it out’.

The shoulder joint is among the more complicated as it moves the arm in a wide arc of motion, not only extending the arm, raising it and lowering it, but also turning it as well. Due to its unusually complex movement capacity, the shoulder tends to develop the most problems since it is almost always in motion. Think about it for a second, how many times do we humans raise our arms over our heads every single day? We do it when we put on a shirt, comb our hair, put on a jacket or coat, or put on a hat, among other things.

And don’t think for a second that because the bursitis is in your non-dominant shoulder, you won’t need it much anyway. Wrong. We all use our secondary side just as often as the dominant one, and we use it several times every single day. So the more we use the afflicted shoulder joint, the more stiff and painful it becomes. Before you know it, you have one arm that you can barely move and you are thinking to yourself, “now what?” Your doctor will prescribe anti-inflammatory medication that can help you out, but drugs usually come with side effects that we really don’t want. Natural pain relief, without psychoactive effects is a more desirable approach to healing. CBD Oil is a natural anti-inflammatory that is proven, through many studies, to reduce inflammation. Exactly what a shoulder with Bursitis needs!

Ways to Treat Bursitis

It helps to know that you can easily treat bursitis of the shoulder (the most common kind) yourself with a few easy stretches. The most beneficial stretching technique is to push back the shoulders so that the spine is straight and the chest is out. This takes the pressure off the bursa and eases its swelling considerably. Perform this exercise just a few times each day until the pain and stiffness are gone, and the bursa will miraculously begin to heal.

When you see movement in the shoulder returning and can do more for yourself again, you will be tempted to stop doing the exercise. But this is the worst possible thing for you to do. Remember that you only need to actually do the stretch a few times a day. Make a habit out of it. The best part is, it just looks like a stretch and is easy to perform in public. Just remember to do it as often as you can. Eventually, the movement becomes habitual and you’ll do it without thinking about it. This is important, because bursitis can return, and this is one way of preventing the problem before it ever takes hold again.

Another stretching exercise that is beneficial not only for bursitis but also for any type of shoulder, back and neck pain, is to arch the spine and look up as if you are star gazing. Then throw back both arms as far as you can while simultaneously pulling back the shoulders. When you do this, you will resemble a diver preparing to do a backward dive into a swimming pool. This multiple-muscle stretching exercise will not only feel good but will likely also help to realign your spinal column as well.

One device that works very well for promoting good shoulder, neck and spine health, is the arched back stretcher, a small, sturdy, padded arch that you lie on to align your spine. This device automatically pulls the shoulders back, which is what you want when you have bursitis. With a device like that, you can get not only bursitis relief, but also relief for back pain if you have a persistent ache. However, if you have suffered a serious back injury in the past, which required fusion surgery, speak to your doctor before attempting to use any device that arches the back or neck.

When you stretch your shoulder in these ways, you should gradually see a return of movement as well as less pain, and all without taking medication of any kind. For severe bursitis, where the bursa is so swollen you can actually feel the lump in your shoulder, it may take a few weeks to fully recover, even after regaining most of your mobility. This is because the shoulder has been weakened and takes some time to recover its strength. Using a light barbell helps to build up the arm again, but try to lift it only up to shoulder level, never high overhead.

Other Options that Help Bursitis

As with any bodily injury, bursitis of the shoulder takes time to heal, so take it easy on the affected arm and try to do your best with only one arm if you can. Wear a sling on the sore arm whenever possible, to help take pressure off the painful shoulder. Letting the arm hang at your side actually puts more pressure on the bursa and causes more pain, so bending the elbow, and relaxing the arm in a sling, reduces that pressure and allows the bursa to heal. Of course, it’s difficult to wear a sling all the time and life throws two handed situations at us all the time, but do your best to give the sore shoulder a break now and then and it will heal much faster.

Applying ice is another way to help bring down the inflammation but do look for a non-psychoactive, full spectrum CBD oilone of the best anti-inflammatories to help relieve pain and get that shoulder moving again!

12 Reasons Why People Are Using CBD oil

The Top 12 Reasons WHY People Are Use CBD Oil 

Studies have shown that CBD oil is helping people all over the world with the following. You can google it and find all the studies that have been done using CBD oil 🙂 I researched this for over a year, and I was totally amazed at all I found 🙂

 

1. PAIN RELIEF 🤕– Neuropathy, Joint Pain, Back Pain, Migraines, Headaches – CBD oil very often allows people to wean off the dangerous and addictive Prescribed Pain Medications) – It also goes to the Source of Pain allowing the body to heal naturally.) – Over 70% of Americans take some form of pain medication daily and over 150 MILLION Americans take a PRESCRIBED OPIOID Daily. I know this to be true as it has helped me come off of heavy duty pain meds 🙂

2. ANXIETY RELIEF😨– CBD oil  has the unique ability to calm down the nervous system (Cannabinoid receptors (CB1, CB2, TRPV1, GP55 and others) and the biochemical machinery necessary to synthesize and generate cannabinoids are present within areas of the brain known to control emotional behavior, mood, sleep, stress, irritability, fear and even the sensation of “craving.” )

3. SEIZURES 👋🏻– CBD is NEUROPROTECTIVE and crosses the Blood-Brain Barrier. (These properties work by working on different targets, which are calcium ion channels, glutamate receptor antagonists, sodium ion channels, and the GATA system and receptor agonists, in the brain. Anticonvulsants may affect the neurotransmitters responsible for sending messages or attach themselves to the neurons. This is done to alter the activity of the cell by switching how ions flow into and out of the neurons.)

4. CANCER 😷– CBD has PROVEN Anti-TUMOR properties and is now one of the most effective ANTI-CANCER treatments one could do.

5. DIGESTIVE PROBLEMS💩– Colitis, Crohn’s, IBS
