3 NATURAL PAIN REMEDIES TO INCORPORATE INTO YOUR DAILY ROUTINE…

If you suffer from back pain, you will know how frustrating it can be to have to cancel plans or events because your back is flaring up. Whether this pain comes from an old injury, a condition such as scoliosis or another reason, managing it daily is a crucial part of being able to fulfil your achievements and live life to the fullest.

While you should consult a doctor for prescribed pain medication if necessary, managing your pain day-to-day is about more than medication. Medication might be vital to help you, but there are additional activities and remedies you can use to supplement these medications for long term relief. 

Let’s take a look at three natural remedies to incorporate into your daily routine.

CBD products have skyrocketed into the mainstream in the past five years. CBD, short for cannabidiol, is a natural relaxing agent that is legal in many countries around the world. Without producing any kind of “high” effect, CBD is said to relax anxiety, help depression, and most importantly, alleviate pain. 

  1. CBD Products

Helpful CBD products include…

  • CBD creams, including skincare and muscle rubs.
  • CBD tablets that can be taken with daily supplements.
  • CBD gummies U.K. that are delicious and easy to munch on throughout the day.

If you are unsure about how CBD would work for your back pain, why not try it out and see for yourself? Thousands of people around the world have found effective pain relief using CBD!

  1. More Movement

Having back pain often prevents us from doing as much exercise or movement as we want to do. If your doctor or physiotherapist has recommended rest, it is important to adhere to those instructions. If you have a sore back day-to-day and are not on rest orders, however, it is very useful to move more often. Our bodies are designed to move in fluid motion, and many of us don’t fulfil that design due to desk jobs and other commitments! 

If you are worried about doing hard exercise with back pain, here are a few non-aggressive exercises that build muscle strength without too much joint or skeleton pressure.

  • Swimming. Swimming is a fantastic form of exercise that builds strength and cardiovascular fitness, without requiring any joint pressure. Plus, it’s super relaxing. What more could you want?
  • Yoga. Gentle yoga practice focuses on breathing, core strength and stretching out our muscles and joints.
  1. Self-Massage

Self-massage is a great way to take your back pain into your own hands. There are different ways to massage your own back, including:

  • Using a foam roller. Foam rollers are a perfect way to align your spine and massage those tight back muscles every morning or evening.
  • A yoga bolster. Yoga Bolsters are like softer versions of foam rollers, helping to soothe aching muscles.
  • Massaging your own neck and shoulders. The parts of your back you can easily reach can be massaged with soothing balms for immediate muscle relaxation.

Use this guide to help you achieve a pain-free back every day, so you can get on with the things that matter to you!

GETTING AS CLOSE TO NATURE AS WE CAN…

I was delighted to receive a gift box of goodies from Naturecan. A company who wants to get as close to nature as we can.

The company was started by a health-focused team with years of experience in nutrition, product development and quality ingredient sourcing. They want to share the oil-natural power of CBD.

From the seed to your door they deliver powerful CBD with quality effectiveness and safety at the heart of everything they do, and as close to nature as they can get it.

They have a great lifestyle blog which answers most health related issues, with regular tips and advice.

This beautiful box arrived wrapped immaculately and when I opened the box the products were neatly wrapped in tissue paper with a leaflet all about the privets and my name personally printed on the front with the words “Barbara discover what Naturecan do”. Well, so far Naturecan do has won my attention hands down.

The leaflet explains the products are grown and extracted from Oregon, USA to meet the highest quality standards and are all completely legal. They utilise whole-plant extraction to filter out unnatural products substances and a unique process maximises CBD concentration with 0% THC guaranteed. Every product is third-party lan tested for certified quality, every time.

They sell a range of CBD oils, capsules, topicals, edibles, non-CBD supplements, and naturally formulated beauty products. On the back of the leaflet it shows you what strength is best for each individual and reminds you to always start with a lower dosage before building up gradually to meet your needs.

The leaflet also has a simple returns form at the back and some FAQ’s. Everything is explained in so much detail.

In my beautiful CBD Tranquility Box, I had a daily moisturiser, lip balm, hand cream, multi-balm, CBD supplement Spearmint Flavour and purify clay mask. I couldn’t wait to start trying some out. All formulated using only plant extracts, active ingredients and broad-spectrum CBD oil, to harness the power of nature to help nourish, repair, and protect – from head to toe.

My box the CBD Tranquility Box is on offer at the moment as you can see from my picture below. I immediately tried out the lip balm as I am sure I am not alone in suffering from such dry lips at the moment, which I am sure has something to do with the masks we are wearing. After just one use my lips felt like normal again. I am now putting this before my lipstick to keep them from drying out.

The hand cream is amazing and smells delicious and the perfect size to keep nearby. The other two products I tried were the moisturiser and the balm which like the other products smells and feels lovely. I am keen to try the spearmint flavoured oil and the clay mask and will write about those products soon.

When I went onto the website I could see I am not alone in endorsing these products. They have five star reviews all round for the products and a number of celebrities also endorsing them. Pop over to their website and see for yourself.

SLEEP SUNDAY – MORE WAYS TO HELP YOU SLEEP…

Only a few more sleeps to Santa coming now but with everything else going on in the world it won’t be just the children who are missing their sleep.

Over the last month, I’ve been up in the night writing lists then reading to try and get my mind on something else. We cannot help it at the moment as there is so much to think about.

One minute they are telling us that we need a full night sleep to function correctly and even that sleeping may help you to lose some weight! Now, researchers are careful to note however that oversleeping has been linked to a host of medical problems, including diabetes and heart disease.

They say that sometimes circumstances mean we need more sleep, for instance during times of stress or illness ( like now). But, the typically recommended amount of sleep for adults should be between seven and nine hours each night.

Some tips to help you sleep if you are having difficulty at the moment are:

1. Have a glass of semi-skimmed milk with 2 teaspoons of honey before you got to bed for a natural goodnight’s sleep. Our immune system also works harder during sleep to fight and prevent illness.

2. Take Melatonin which is a hormone that plays a key part in regulating your natural body-clock. Studies have shown that melatonin improves sleep quality, particularly in the elderly.

3. Take Valerian as it is thought to have a sedative effect. Studies have shown that the root of the valerian makes getting to sleep easier and increases a deeper sleep.

4. Eat more leeks and onions or garlic and artichokes as they contain prebiotic fibres that fuel the healthy bacteria in our gut and can have a profound effect on our health and sleep.

5. Some CBD products help. For me personally, I prefer the gummies as I think they work better and easier to monitor how many you have had. They certainly relax you if nothing else.

6. Some people do truly believe acupressure to help you sleep. Use your first two fingers and tap them across the top of your head from temple to temple. Then work from front to back and side to side as this can get blood and oxygen moving to ease tension and restore focus.
