CBD Craze!!

Ok, so I was a little skeptical as to whether or not this CBD craze was legit or not so I of course gave it a try. I tried the pills first and then the drops. For me personally my goal was to reduce my anxiety and help with sleep. I must say I have achieved my goal my anxiety is so much better and my sleep. I knew that when I lost my nanny and I didn’t have a new one to take over and I didn’t have a total panic attack and I stayed calm, that something was working and it had to be the CBD. As far as my clients I have not had one person say that it didn’t help them. So I am a firm believer CBD is not a marketing scam and it really works.

People take or apply cannabidiol to treat a variety of symptoms, but the use has become very controversial. There is some confusion among people about what it is and how it affects the human body. Cannabidiol (CBD) may have some health benefits, and it may also have some risks. Products containing the compound are now legal in most American states where marijuana is not.

What is CBD oil?

CBD is one of many compounds, known as cannabinoids, in the cannabis plant. Researchers have been looking at the possible therapeutic uses of CBD.

CBD oils are oils that contain concentrations of CBD. The concentrations and the uses of these oils vary.

Is CBD marijuana?

CBD oil may have health benefits

 

Until recently, the best-known compound in cannabis was delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). This is the most active ingredient in marijuana. Marijuana contains both THC and CBD.

THC creates a mind-altering “high” when a person uses it. This is because THC breaks down when we apply heat and introduce it into the body. CBD is different.  THC is not mind altering.  CBD does appear to produce significant changes in the body, and researchers are now finding that it can be used for medical purposes.

CBD comes from he least processed form of the cannabis plant is hemp. Hemp contains most of the CBD that people use medicinally. Hemp and marijuana come from the same plant, Cannabis sativa, but the two are very different.  However, hemp farmers have barely modified the plant. These are the plants that are used to create the CBD oil.

CBD may benefit a person’s health in a variety of ways. Here is just a short list of the many uses for CBD that have significant research on the positive health benefits from its use.

 

Natural pain relief and anti-inflammatory properties

Quitting smoking and drug withdrawals

Epilepsy

Other neurological symptoms and disorders

Fighting cancer

Anxiety disorders

Sleep 

Depression 

Type 1 diabetes

Acne

Alzheimer’s disease

So what is the best Brand to buy ? I have tried a couple different ones but I like Designs For Health CBD oil drops.   I find that the pills are not as effective as doing sublingual drops. As far as the creams for pain and inflammation I like Medical Miracles. There is a link below to purchase that Designs for Health you must get from a Health professional. 

 

 

The Hunt for a Kids Snack Bar

If you are reading this you most likely have some interest in living a healthy lifestyle. Well how about if your a parent and trying to give your kid or kids a healthy snack that doesn’t taste like sawdust or rubber.  I have been on the hunt for the top snack bars for your little ones. I have gone to all the most popular health foods stores to find the answer since most of us like to have the option of buying the snacks and trying them before we order a bulk load of the website or amazon.  So I had my son Jaxson try each bar give me some feedback. Yes, some got thrown right on the floor and others he gobbled up and called a “cooookkkiieee”. It is almost worth giving him a million bars because it is so cute when he says the word “cookie”.  I have posted some of his reactions on my instagram img_0064 (1)seefitliving if you want to check it out.

What was I looking for in the bar?

  • no or very little sugar
  • gluten free
  • organic or mostly organic ingredients
  • soy free
  • dairy free (but not limited to dairy free)
  • contains fruits and veggies

Now of course it is really hard to find a good bar that contains all of these qualities so I will post below some that come close to meeting all of these guidelines that my son or I would actually eat.  I did include some fruit snack strips in the list. Jax loves the Larabars  and it is nice because they now have some with sugar. The RX bar is similar to the larabar he liked all the flavors but the straight berry it is pretty intense. There are a ton of bars out there I recommend you check the sugar content if you don’t have to worry about any nut, soy or dairy allergies. I know its hard to be totally sugar free at times but it is nice to have the option when you can.

 

Why Acid Free Coffee and my new Milk Steamer

 

UnknownA lot of my clients drink coffee and have a serious addiction like most of the world. I definitely have my phases of being highly addicted to coffee. I love the process of making it, the treat and coziness of drinking coffee, my new milk steamer, sharing a special moment with someone over coffee and the list goes on.  I try to recommend to people to drink Acid Free coffee. WHY? Coffee is super acidic and can wreck havoc on your gut. It tears down the microvilli that protect your intestinal wall which protect you from getting leaky gut!! Another tip always add some kind of fat into your coffee. You can use cream, coconut oil, goats milk,  almond milk or coconut milk. There are tons of great creamers available that do not contain sugar or cows milk. So please try to buy acid free coffee to help protect your gut. On a side note I just purchased a Nespresso milk steamer and it has changed my world. The milk is so frothy and fluffy and yummy….. yes that is the best way to describe the experience 🙂
