CBD FOR PAIN RELIEF AND ITS HEALTH BENEFITS…

Marijuana has been a taboo subject for a long time. People refuse to legalise it because they fear it might cause substance abuse in others. Unfortunately, people are getting addicted to it, but the drug itself is not as dangerous as heroin or cocaine. With enough research and studies, scientists discovered that weed can be used to ease pain in people. This quality makes CBD an appealing option for those who are looking for relief from pain and other symptoms without the mind-altering effects of marijuana or certain pharmaceutical drugs.

Doctors are prescribing medicinal marijuana in countries where the drug is legal. Not only that, the extract from the herb is used to create CBD oil that is also efficient against pain. Studies have shown that the oil is beneficial against pain. Many studies suggest CBD may activate a system called the endocannabinoid system, which provides relief from the symptoms the patient is experiencing.

Moreover, some people choose to try different treatment for their pain. They’re just not comfortable with any products that is associated with weed. They’re not to blame either. But if you don’t have anything against the drug, then you should try CBD oil for your pain. There is lots of online research to read about other people’s experiences with the oil. Since medicinal marijuana can ease pain, then the oil should be able to do the same thing.

CBD oil can help with a number of conditions including cancer, headaches, IBS, to name a few.

Its far from a cure for cancer, but at least it can ease some of the symptoms in a patient. Radiation causes the patient to vomit and feel nauseated all the time. CBD oil can help reduce the nausea. They suggest you take a drop of CBD oil and hold it under your tongue. This way the substance is properly absorbed in the mouth. Then you can proceed to swallow the liquid. The effect of the oil will not be as good if swallowed directly, that’s why you should follow this step carefully so that you can eliminate all the negative symptoms from the body. This process can be repeated a couple of times during the week but before trying it you should always ask your doctor first.

Headaches are a regular part of our lives. We all know that they can cause incredible frustration and moodiness. Pain in the head can prevent us from doing our daily tasks. That’s where CBD oil comes in handy. It can even be more functional than other medications as it reduces inflammation that causes the headache in the first place.

Another important thing that you should remember is take the oil regularly. This is the only way that it will prove effective. Every time you have a headache you can take the oil in a capsule and let the liquid work its magic. The oil doesn’t cause any negative symptoms, unlike other medications that can cause dizziness and fatigue.

People that suffer from irritable bowel syndrome know that the disease can be a huge inconvenience. Taking the oil can reduce some of the symptoms of IBS. This means that you won’t get bloated as often and you should be able to rest better as well. The only way that this can be effective for IBS is by smoking or vaping the oil. First and foremost you need to start with an oil that has a lower concentration of CBD, then work your way through it. Your body needs to adjust to the change after vaping the oil. With time you can use a liquid with a higher consistency of CBD.

Furthermore, you should be able to notice a difference with time but have patience as nothing works right from the start. You need to take your time with the oil as with any medication prescribed. Always remember to see your Doctor first before trying any new type of treatment. Make sure that you follow the instructions of the doctor carefully so that the end result can be satisfactory.

EFT, EMOTIONAL FREEDOM TECHNIQUE ALTERNATIVE THERAPY FOR PAIN…

EFT short for Emotional Freedom Techniques is a form of acupuncture that involves gently ‘tapping’ specific points on the body with fingertips to treat an emotional or physical symptom.

Tania A Prince

The therapy is based on the theory that all negative emotions disrupt the body’s energy system and stimulating certain points will relieve the emotions. You can either go and visit a qualified EFT therapist or learn the technique yourself. It’s easy to learn and involves four stages.

It has been used to treat a wide range of emotional problems including anxiety, phobias and grief as well as physical aches and pains.

You can find lots of information from the Emofree site.

Wikipedia describes it as a ‘form of alternative psychotherapy that purports to manipulate the body’s energy field by tapping on acupuncture points’. Some call EFT ‘a new acupuncture without the needles’ and ‘energy psychology’. Success rates for EFT are not 100% but it certainly has a high success rate for some.

The Energy Therapy Centre in London explains the concept of EFT –

Often referred to as “Psychological acupressure”, the technique works by releasing blockages within the energy system which are the source of emotional intensity and discomfort. These blockages in our energy system, in addition to challenging us emotionally, often lead to limiting beliefs and behaviours and an inability to live life harmoniously. Resulting symptoms are either emotional and/ or physical and include lack of confidence and self-esteem, feeling stuck anxious or depressed, or the emergence of compulsive and addictive behaviours. It is also now finally widely accepted that emotional disharmony is a key factor in physical symptoms and dis-ease and for this reason, these techniques are being extensively used on physical issues, including chronic illness with often astounding results. As such these techniques are being accepted more and more in medical and psychiatric circles as well as in the range of psychotherapies and healing disciplines.

An EFT treatment involves the use of fingertips rather than needles to tap on the endpoints of energy meridians that are situated just beneath the surface of the skin. The treatment is non-invasive and works on the ethos of making a change as simple and as pain-free as possible.

EFT is a common sense approach that draws its power from Eastern discoveries that have been around for over 5,000 years. In fact, Albert Einstein also told us back in the 1920’s that everything (including our bodies) is composed of energy. These ideas have been largely ignored by Western Healing Practices and as they are unveiled in our current times, a human process is reopening itself to the forgotten truth that everything is Energy and the potential that this offers us.

In the short time since it’s inception by Gary Craig in the 1990’s, EFT has provided thousands of people with relief from all manner of problems and conditions, often in startlingly quick time and after long and painful periods of searching for a cure. The diversity of successful treatments have ranged from trauma and abuse, phobias, self-sabotaging behaviour patterns, to deep-set emotional conditions of anxiety and depression, addictions, physical illness, to name but a few.

EFT is drawing attention from the broad spectrum of healing professionals; from the scientists to the spiritualists and everyone in between. It is at the heart of the rejoining of the old and new paradigms.

EFT restores awareness and trust in the natural healing abilities of our mind and body, providing ground-breaking opportunities to achieving physical and emotional well-being in a faster time frame.

Because the techniques are so simple, they can be used effectively as a self-help tool, which empowers people to actively contribute to their own healing and development process. This facilitates a much faster relief process, previously believed impossible by healthcare professionals who advocated lengthy (& often painful) hours in psychotherapeutic or medical care, often with limited results. These techniques do not discredit the medical and psychotherapeutic professions, but rather serve to contribute to a holistic healing process.

It works by working on its discovery statement that:

Our negative emotions are caused by a disruption in the body’s energy system

EFT works to clear such disruptions and eliminate the resulting emotional response or intensity to restore emotional harmony and offer relief from physical discomfort.

This is done by focusing on the specific problem whilst tapping with fingers on the endpoints of energy meridians. The combination of sending kinetic energy to our energy system, whilst uncovering and focusing on root causes, facilitates a “straightening out” of the energy system thereby eliminating the “short circuit” to the body’s learnt response or negative emotion.

PLEASE OFFER ME A SEAT AVAILABLE IN CERTAIN AREAS…

In the event that you battle to stand while using open transport, there is a free identification badge which enables you to alarm others that you need a seat.

A considerable number of people have conditions or a sickness but have nothing to show about there condition are in need of a seat on all forms of transport. With this badge you don’t have to clarify your purpose behind the badge but you should be offered a seat.

Around 78 per cent of people who carry the TfL badge say that they now find it a lot easier to get a seat on the bus or Tube. But this is a London-centred scheme. With more than one in six people in the UK have an ‘activity limiting’ condition, accounts from across the UK generally paint a picture of inaccessibility and discomfort on public transport for those with invisible conditions.

If you see someone with a badge or card and you are seated, they say you should stand and offer them your seat. While there are priority seats on public transport, they would like to encourage all customers in any seat, to be considerate and offer their seat to those that are less able to stand.

I am surprised it has taken so long for this to be developed but just reading the difference it has made to people suffering from MS, cancer, being pregnant, to name a few. I just hope it won’t be long before other councils follow suit. If your council has launched this please let us know in a comment for others to take advantage of it.

Not all local councils cover this badge but it might be just worth writing to yours if you cannot find anything online. The ones I found were London, Greater Manchester, and Network West Midlands.

Take something to control the pain and stay active. Bed-rest is not the answer.
