A Different Kind Of Pain Management

A Different Kind Of Pain Management
Beauty Brite Disclosure

When constant pain and aches are part of your every day you are always looking for a different kind of pain management. I’ve never liked being on medication constantly and that’s when I started looking for something new.

Car accident 2016

It’s been nearly four years now since my life was turned completely upside down. A seemingly normal day came to a crashing halt when my family and I were struck head-on by a drunk driver at 3 pm in the afternoon, forever changing my life. I still don’t remember very much, and I doubt that I ever will, in retrospect is probably the best. I remember leaving work that afternoon to take my kids to the local pumpkin festival. The next thing I remember waking up completely unable to move.

I was told there was a car accident, and that I have broken several bones. I didn’t care, all I cared about at that time was where were my children and were they ok. I remember I must have asked where they were over a hundred times. Looking back, I’m sure that also had something to do with the concussion I had. Turns out the concussion was my least serious injury. Of all four limbs, there was only one that wasn’t broken.

My left arm was so mangled that I now have a plate and 8 screws in it, My right wrist was broken and now has a pin. My right knee had a laceration down to the bone, ( had it been any worse they said I’d have lost the leg). My right heel was by far the worst of the broken bones I had. My heel was shattered, the doctor said that it looked like a bomb when off in my heel. He also said usually the force it takes to break a heel will break persons back. So I guess you could say I was lucky.

In the span of the first week after the accident I had 5 surgeries. Before it was said and done I ended up having a total of 7 surgeries in correspondence with the accident. I was left wheelchair-bound, I spent 8 months of recovery learning to walk again. I’ve lost 50% range of motion permanently. You can read my initial thoughts on the accident in this original blog, ” Starting Over: Life After Tragedy.”

Getting my life back.

Basic CBD

So pain is something that I now live with every day. Pain management isn’t always easy, shortly after my accident I weaned myself off of all narcotic pain medication because I didn’t like the way they made me feel. I know how easy it is to become addicted, and that’s something I didn’t want to put my children though. So I started researching alternative pain management options. That’s when I found out about Basic CBD.

First let me say that I am in no way a medical professional, and all the opinions in this are my own. I have found that using these CBD products has helped with my pain management tremendously. I urge you to do your research about the products before you use, and always check with your doctor because starting something new.

A Different Kind of Pain Management.

Basic CBD THC Free

With that being said, after extensive research, I decided to give CBD products a try. Basic CBD is grown in Colorado, and are always pesticide-free. These products are also vegan and non-toxic. There are two different kinds that I have tried. The Basic: Zero THC and Basic: Full Spectrum CBD Oil. Usually, I can take the Zero THC oil and it does the trick, but on high pain days, I will take the Full Spectrum. Using the dropper take 1ML under the tongue.

Since starting Basic CBD I’ve also noticed a decrease in my migraines. After being on many different kinds of medication for my migraines I could never find anything that helped, using these at the start of a headache and laying down has now decreased the amount of time that I am out of commission from the usually debilitating migraines.

I’m really glad that I’ve finally found something to help with my pain management. I can finally start looking forward to days with limited and no pain with no side effects. This has finally given me my life back. To get your own Basic CBD be sure to visit their website, Facebook, Or Instagram.

Getting Clean and Safe Water When Supply is Limited

Beauty Brite Disclosure

These are definitely uncertain times we’re living in right now. It’s almost like being in a science fiction movie, isn’t it? Due to COVID-19, our state has ordered all residents to shelter in place. Many other states are also ordering people to do the same.

In Michigan, this means that we are expected not to leave our homes unless we’re getting groceries, seeking medical attention, aiding a family member, or working in an essential field. Our governor has also requested that people get groceries delivered when possible. For nearly three days, I tried to order groceries. A lot of the supplies I had requested were out of stock, which was very frustrating. I quickly learned that water is one of the essentials that seems to be in shortest supply. How can we find clean and safe water when supply is so limited? I had to get resourceful with other options.

Water filtration systems are a great thing to have in your house, whether you’re in quarantine or not. It’s much more cost effective than purchasing countless jugs or bottles of spring water. In addition, it’s also far better for our environment. Less plastic in our landfills is much better for our planet.

When water is in short supply, water filtration systems allow you to make plenty for your family! I was even able to fill up a few jugs of water for family and neighbors who weren’t able to get any from the local grocery store.

I’ve used many filtration systems, but my favorite by far is the Aquasana Clean Water Machine. I actually love this machine so much, after I reviewed mine, I purchased one for my mother.

Aquasana Clean Water Machine effectively purifies one gallon of water at a time. I love that it removes 99% of lead and asbestos, as well as 96% of chlorine, chloramines and 73 other harmful contaminants.

In addition, it removes:

  • HEAVY METALS– like lead and mercury
  • CYSTS– that resist chlorine like giardia and cryptosporidium
  • ORGANIC CHEMICALS– like herbicides, pesticides and VOCs
  • PHARMACEUTICALS– like estrone and ibuprofen

For Alkaline water fans, Aquasana Clean Water Machine reduces acidic compounds and preserves naturally occurring minerals that improve water alkalinity and overall pH levels for optimally hydrating water.

The Aquasana Clean Water Machine is very easy to use. I’ll admit that I was intimidated by how impressive it looks. But it’s really very simple! Just fill the pitcher, place back into the filter dock, and the Aquasana Clean Water Machine will filter the water for you in about 30 seconds.

Here’s a informative video that shows you just how easy the Aquasana Clean Water Machine is to use:

The Aquasana Clean Water Machine is a good investment for you home, family, and health. Clean water helps our bodies operate at optimum capacity. This machine has been a life saver and made it possible for my family to get clean water while there’s been a massive shortage. We will continue to use Aquasana because it’s economically and environmentally smart. I highly recommend this for your household as well.
