Alternative Health and Healing With CBD Products

Alternative Health and Healing With CBD Products

Beauty Brite Disclosure

Two years ago was one of the worst moments of my life when I woke up in one of the biggest hospitals in the state after being hit head-on by a drunk driver. This resulted in massive injuries for me as I took the brunt of the damage. I suffered three out of my four limbs broken. I left arm broke so bad that I now have a plate and eight screws in it, my right wrist has a pin in it and my right heel was crushed and then reconstructed with cadaver bone. I was in a wheelchair for over 6 months before learning to rewalk. So pain is something that I’ve come to live with on a daily basis. Unfortunately, conventional methods of pain control don’t help that much and I didn’t want to get addicted to painkillers. So I’ve started to research alternative health ideas and options to help ease the pain.

Coupled with severe anxiety, major depressive disorder, slight PTSD from the accident my mental health hasn’t been the greatest lately. Some days it is a constant battle to just make it through the day. Mainstream media and today’s society tend to place such a stigma on mental health like its some taboo that doesn’t need to be talked about. With suicide rates ever increasing, 25% in the last two years alone its a growing epidemic sweeping the world.

With that being said, I’ve lately been researching ways to deal with pain and anxiety without having to take tradition medications because of the lasting effects that they leave you with. For me, I honestly hate the way they leaving me so disconnected from everything. So I’ve started turning more earthside and I’ve found a few different things I’ve been trying.

Elixicure

When I’m having pain that just won’t stop and nothing helps I use the Lavender Hemp Extract pain relief roll on by Elixicure. This roll-on is perfect for on the go relief in a hurry, with the added bonus of the calming lavender scent. I’ve tried roll-on products before that haven’t ever really worked, so trying this I pretty much expected the same thing. I’ll admit that I was pleasantly surprised at how well it actually worked. With other roll-on products, I’ve always felt “sticky” afterward but that’s not the case with the Elixicure roll-on. I have this in my bag for work because after standing on concrete all day or climbing up and down ladders I need some relief fast! Now my husband really prefers the Pain Relief Cream. With his arthritis, he tends to have pain often and doesn’t like to take oral painkillers, with the pain relief cream he doesn’t have to worry about the side effects or drowsiness so these alternative health products work better for him. 

Alternative health products that work!

I first started reading about CBD products and wasn’t sure what to think, but this finally seemed like something that was having positive results without the nasty effects for traditional pain relief or nerve medications. 

 

Veritas Farms Capsules

Some of the best products I’ve found for alternative healing and self-care are from Veritas Farms. One of my favorite products from Veritias Farms is their capsules.  These full spectrum organic hemp oil capsules are great for helping with problems such as anxiety and insomnia and even stomach issues. I was a bit on the fence about these capsules as I didn’t want to have to remember to take something else daily but guess what. These work as needed which is great for if I find myself having a very hard anxiety day. It doesn’t leave me feeling in a fog which I’ve noticed with other anxiety medications. I’ve also found that if I’ve had a bad anxiety day my stomach is usually in knots or I’m feeling sick, this helps calm all those feelings down so that I can get something on my stomach and have it settled. 

Veritas Farms Minted Lavender Lotion

Another great product we love from Veritas Farms is their lotions, the Minted lavender is my favorite. My oldest daughter has suffered from debilitation eczema since she was a baby. Sometimes so bad her skin is cracked and bleeding. So we have constantly been looking for new lotions or ointments to give her some relief. With anti-inflammatory properties, it keeps the breakdown and irritation to a minimum and heals the skin. She finally doesn’t have to hide under long sleeves and pants anymore. These alternative health products are some of our favorites.

I love these CBD products, but I’m no doctor so make sure you do your own research and consult your health care provider before starting any new products to make sure they will work in your life.

    I had a back injury in the 80′ and have suffered with pain that was really bad. The meds the Dr’s put me on effected my Kidneys . I was told about using CBD by my Dr and it has helped so much but it didnt help my mom with the same problem as i have. I now have 5 loved ones taking it and they all are getting relief from nerve pain etc. My daughter had Cancer it helps her as well with her stomach and nerve pain problems. We all take the oral oil. Can’t say enough about it and my Kidney Dr said its ok to take too. You’ve been through so much hope your feeling better now too.

  2. I am so very sorry that you are still suffering from the accident. Healing takes a long time, and it’s not just the body that gets injured – you are so right. I’m so glad you are getting relief with CBD products. I have not heard of Veritas Farms – definitey will check them out. We’re big into CBD here in WA state, and I do a lot of work with it – so I’m glad I found your post!

  3. Chronic pain like that takes a toll on every part of you. It’s wonderful that you found something that is helping. I haven’t tried any CBD products at this point, but have been paying attention and reading up!

  4. I’ve heard a lot about the healing powers of CBD. As someone with sleeping issues, I’ve gotten a lot of recommendations to try CBD out. So far so good.

  5. Catherine Santiago Jose says:

    Great product to recommend and really good alternative. Thank you for making us enlighten about this amazing product, appreciate this information.

  6. I am sorry to hear that you have been in such a horrible accident. I have never heard of CBD products before but if they are plant based and if they are helping you go through the pain and lead a better life, then they are definitely good.

  7. I’ve read and heard a lot about the healing benefits of CBD products. This is one of the reasons why people are trying to legalize the (medical) use of CBD in my country.

  8. I am also sorry to hear that you are still suffering from pain from the accident. I have heard CBD does wonders for some people. I hope it works well for you.

  9. I’ve been a big supporter of CBD for many of it’s amazing uses. Personally I used it for anxiety and stress and overall feelings of overwhelm and it was amazing. I think anyone who is fed up with traditional Western medicine should look into it for sure.

  10. I really need to start trying CBD products! Especially for anxiety. I just recently found out they’re legal in Sweden, always thought it was illegal for some reason…

    Ive been fascinated with learning about CBD and its uses to assist with healthy alternatives, your article is super helpful, thank you

    However, certain components of the cannabis plant can be beneficial for health and healing, without getting you “high”. CBD oil contains one of those powerful components. It’s become a hot topic among natural health circles who claim it can help with everything from chronic pain relief to cancer.

  13. Oh Lord! I’m sorry that you had to go through all of these and I can tell that you’re a fighter. Yes, you’ll definitely have to deal with PTSD, anxiety and all that. Have you tried to see a therapist regarding these matters. I work for a mental health inpatient facility and i know seeing a therapist will definitely help . As for alternative medicines, I’m always down for that. Keep taking care of yourself my dear!
