I’m sure you’ve heard the buzz about CBD!
I have to start with a story about my anxiety and what happened with my neck last summer. It wasn’t until around July that I started having all these weird symptoms that were making me panic. I felt dizzy, tired, vertigo, and I had neck pain and some headaches that were coming up from the base of my neck over the top of my head.
This is why things went silent here on the blog.
The kids were out of school for the summer, we had a major renovation going on in our home, and when I thought I was managing everything well it all came crashing down. When you are stressed and not addressing the stress, your body will fail. A hard lesson learned the summer I was 40.
I made an appointment with my primary doctor and also made an appointment to see my dad’s chiropractor. I couldn’t go to the gym, I didn’t feel comfortable driving, I basically didn’t want to leave the house. I felt like I was at an all time low. It really sucked. I had some good days but the bad days were too many.
I went for my bloodwork, and while I waited for my primary doctor annual exam, I went to see the chiropractor. Guys, my neck was so locked up it was causing all of my symptoms. The chiropractor could not believe how distressed my neck was she asked me if I had a trauma like a car accident or something. I hadn’t seen a chiropractor since long before any of my kids were born.
She started me on a few supplements to help calm me down to offset my anxiety that was at an all time peek and I started seeing her three times a week. It took months to get my neck to about 80% so most of the rest of my summer was spent getting adjustments, having decompression therapy, and deep tissue massages with my chiropractor.
I had only been taking a multivitamin up until this point. One of the supplements I started was CBD. I also added in Vitamin D, and B12. I’d heard from friends how CBD has made their joint pain nearly disappear, and relieve ailments. One of my family members uses a cream with CBD regularly to help with neck pain. I was so desperate to feel well again.
Cannabidiol, also known as CBD, is a compound that interacts with the body’s endocannabinoid system. These series of receptors regulate pain, mood, the immune system, memory, appetite, stress, and other important functions.
I also met with my primary doctor. My bloodwork came back normal. My physical was normal. She thought I was headed in the right direction with my treatment at the chiropractor as well as the supplements I was adding to my day to day and we made an appointment to follow up in three months.
I started with Social CBD Broad Spectrum Drops. They are easy to take! Apply Broad Spectrum Drops directly into your mouth. I started with the lowest dose 1/4 the dropper. You can work your way up to half a dropper. My body has a higher reaction for medicines so I wanted to make sure I started out slow. Social CBD Broad Spectrum Drops come in four all-natural varieties: Unflavored, Pomegranate Tea, Meyer Lemon, and Vanilla Mint.
CBD does NOT get you get you high. I think that is the biggest misconception. It is not a cure all wonder drug and it doesn’t work the same way for each person. Definitely have a chat with your healthcare team before taking any supplement or if you have changes in your overall health that are concerning.
I am now seven months into my new lifestyle. I went back to my beloved Barre class once the kids returned to school in September. I’m still going to the chiropractor every four week for maintenance. I do not ever want to feel that debilitated again. I am managing my anxiety and stress a lot better with the help of my daily supplements which includes Social CBD and exercise. I feel more at peace. My shoulders aren’t up around my neck causing tension. I feel like myself and that alone makes me feel at peace.
