We warriors are a resilient breed. After speaking extensively with a CBD enthusiast over the weekend, i finally bit the bullet and bought the "good" stuff...all in the name of research. Things have changed a bit since my first CBD experience, including the flavor. This particular product comes in natural (an earthy flavor), peppermint (self-explanatory), and cinnamon (Yum!).Because particular brand (Hempworx) has ONLY two ingredients : CDB and hemp seed oil.
I decided to document my experience here, so if any of you are interested we can discuss our personal journeys. As you all know, MS is an expensive condition that requires careful thought to additional treatments and related expenditures, most of which are not recognized by insurance companies and/or medical professionals; so, every experience is a financial gamble.
I started my new "treatment" on Saturday, October 26, 2019. The instructions direct you to take two-three drops under the tongue twice a day for the first week. Hold the drops under the tongue for 60-90 seconds to increase the absorption, the swallow the remainder. The amount increases in week two until you "find your sweet spot" (the actual point at which you begin feeling desired results).
My biggest concern with CBD is the interaction with my prescribed medications. This issue was quickly resolved with the instructions to take my drops one hour prior to prescribed meds and all should be A-Okay. Drink plenty of water to flush toxins from the body (That sounds exciting! I'm now cleansing my body from the inside out.)
Currently I have felt no change in my physicality, but it's early. I am excited to feel the effects. Any effects. Whether it is improvement in balance, better sleep, increased amount of energy...
I plan to analyze my physical well-being even more closely than I normally do.
I will continue to report any/all noticeable effects. Maybe not daily, but I won't leave you hanging.
If you are experimenting with CBD, or any other alternative treatments, please share your experience (s) here. this blog is a place to share and to grow in this journey with the MonSter. Your input is valuable.
Have a good week.
November is waiting fro us to be our very best.
