How CBD Saved My Life & Why I No Longer Rely on it

May 2, 2018

I was told early on that full spectrum hemp oil (CBD) was beneficial for chronic Lyme because it worked deeply on healing not only the symptoms but the cause.

 

 

It seemed too good to be true - and I was shocked when it wasn’t (see earlier blogs and visit the how CBD works page to learn more).

 

With chronic Lyme being my main underlying health condition I was also excited to learn that while full spectrum hemp oil was alleviating panic attacks and migraines/nerve pain it was also shown to go deeper with its healing impact. Not only was there research showing it kills Lyme bacteria and co-infections but other studies suggested it heals Lyme-battered myelin sheath, the fatty coating on the nerves.  (For more information on the Lyme healing properties of hemp grab the book Cannabis and Lyme Disease on Amazon).

 

Lava Love full spectrum hemp oil (CBD) is a wonderful and healing short- or long-term therapy for conditions such Lyme disease, anxiety and depression and many other chronic pain / autoimmune conditions. I sometimes use a rice-sized grain of our concentrates once or twice a week during periods of stress or a half dropper of the oils. But I no longer feel the need to take it every day. Using just a small amount of the concentrates over time and augmenting with other lovely mood-enhancing herbs such as schisandra and reishi mushroom has turned out to be a wonderful healing program for my body along with my primarily raw foods diet.

 

It's important to note that I would not be where I am today without Lava Love Full Spectrum Hemp Oil (CBD). Our THC-free hemp oils helped retrain my body to no longer have massive anxiety and panic attacks without the high or paranoia associated with marijuana. (This is not a marijuana oil). That's huge!

 

And if you are struggling with these issues, then full spectrum hemp oil could be the very therapy that helps you get back on your feet or helps you get through any other beneficial therapies (other herbs, detox, juice feasting) that can heal your body at a deep level. It has helped me so much in that regard

 

And over time I felt it. While Lava Love full spectrum hemp (CBD) dramatically soothed my nerves and took away my more pressing anxiety/pain issues it also seemed to producing feelings of deep healing throughout my body. I hear the same types of testimonials from those using it to heal multiple sclerosis, fibromyalgia, cancer, autoimmune issues.

 

What I didn’t realize in those early days is there would come a day when I might not need it any more in the same way. I was convinced it would be my best friend for life.  At that point you would have had to pry it out of my cold dead hands.

 

But recently I noticed that even when I would forget to take the oil for a day or two something strange would happen. I would be…just fine!

 

In fact I was feeling more energetic. When I would take a rice-sized grain of my concentrate I would actually become sleepy, too sleepy, so I decided to do more research and figure out if I needed to adjust my dosage.

 

I asked a friend who is a Doctor of Science in Oriental Medicine who has studied CBD extensively as part of her doctoral thesis on the subject and was a little bit surprised when her answer was a resounding “yes.”

 

Yes, CBD can change your nervous system for the better, even without continued usage. Wow! Here is what my friend, Heather Gail George of The Lotus Way online health center had to say.

 

"My specialization is in learning to understand the ENDO-cannabinoid system (within the human body). Of course I'm passionate about the recognition and continued research of how various exogenous cannabinoids (outside the human body, from plants) and other factors affect this system." 

 

“So when we look at a product like yours it’s not just CBD it’s full spectrum hemp. So with that we have this ‘entourage effect.’  With (full spectrum hemp) often people just needed that initial signaling for a short period of time before they started self regulating.”

 

So in other words, the full spectrum hemp with CBD had retrained my nervous system not to over-react to life situations with an anxiety or panic response and had, in effect retrained my own internal system to work like a “normal” person's.

 

“That’s what our endogenous cannabinoid system does. It was built to receive messages and then rewire us. And we don’t need to keep receiving the same message all the time. It’s like me saying ‘Go out and check your mail' every day. I don’t need to keep saying that."

 

It's as if the various constituents in the Lava Love Full Spectrum Hemp oil, including CBD, “got in there and stimulated” my own messaging system in the direction it needed to go and then my system continued to do its work even after I stopped the CBD, according to George.

 

Other people aren’t so lucky and need to take the CBD rich oils full time and for longer periods in order to get their own systems working better, she explained.

 

"We may have four people with anxiety and two of them had a trauma in their past and they are just a little deficient” so short term use is appropriate," George explains. "The best thing about full spectrum hemp is that the potential risks are so low that it’s so worth it for all of us to start on a low dose and try it for a couple of weeks and for a lot of people it is a miracle."

 

So for a period I just stopped taking it! And guess what? I didn’t die! My anxiety didn’t come back. I didn’t feel depressed. I just felt good. And moreover I was hearing from customers who said they, too, were needing a far lower dose as time went on.

And if you are struggling with these issues, then full spectrum hemp oil could be the very therapy that helps you get back on your feet or helps you get through any other beneficial therapies (other herbs, detox, juice feasting) that can heal your body at a deep level. It has helped me so much in that regard.

 

But like any great therapy, depending on our condition, we may not need to rely on it for life. That’s good news! Other full spectrum hemp company owners should not be upset by this article  – they should be rejoicing at the fact that we are bringing something to the public that is so deeply healing. We should be interested in healing people not making them reliant on our products in the same way that Big Pharma seeks to do.

 

Lava Love has always been about bringing the powerful Mother Earth healing products to the world. Bathe in clay baths for a few months. Then stop. Then start again in a year. Do it as a yearly practice. But nobody should be bathing in clay every single day of their life. It’s just too powerful!

 

So always, as with everything, listen to your body. And if you don’t know how to do that then consider consulting with a practitioner like Dr. George who is versed in CBD and dosage and augmenting treatment with other modalities and herbs.

 

Full spectrum hemp oil by Lava Love is still an invaluable tool in my healing arsenal, along with a highly mineralizing raw foods-rich plant based diet, detox baths and meditation. 

 

But longterm I will likely use it the way people use many different herbs. People take a little bit of oil of oregano when they feel a cold coming on. Others use ginger when they feel nauseated. Or slippery elm when experiencing gut inflammation.

 

Some people may feel like they absolutely have to be on it every day for life. That’s up to each individual. But it’s worth noting that for many of us, once CBD has done its work, daily higher doses may not be necessary.

 

So please continue to spread the love! This stuff is saving many lives and giving so many back a quality of life they haven't had in years. But remember it’s much more than a band-aid. It’s a true healer.

 

And if you have questions about dosing and efficacy for your particular condition consider working with a Cannabinoid Literate Practitioner. My pick is Heather Gail George, a Doctor of Oriental Medicine (graduate of NUNM here in Portland) who has an online consulting practice, and did her doctoral thesis work on the Endocannabinoid System and phytocannabinoids such as cannabis, including CBD. Here’s how you can reach her and book an online appointment: www.thelotusway.org

 

If you would like help with weight loss and/or disease reversal with a plant based diet please visit my certified nutrition counseling page at  www.elisabethdunhamhealth.com

 

 

And, last but not least, if you've made it this far use code CONCENTRATES to  save 10 percent on all of our concentrated products (the same ones I use!) A rice sized grain per day is all you need the first several weeks or months and then, most likely you will feel that you will feel fine on a lower dose!

 

Real healing medicine.
