9 years ago I was officially diagnosed with RA and given medication and braces. 7 years ago exactly; I ended up in the Emergency Room with a possible heart attack. Short story is that my medication had eaten away at my esophagus and it was RAW.... The pain was causing severe chest pain.
So, after a couple of days of testing and hospital stay, I was told,
"Good news! My heart was in great shape!!!
Bad news... my medication was causing severe side effects.
Good news! There's 2 more medications I'll get to take and I'll be fine"
NO! That's NOT GOOD NEWS!!! That's when I was introduced to Young Living.... Thank you, Jesus! I have been 7 years with no medications, and after a week I was able to stop wearing these braces.
Well, a few months ago, my arthritis started getting worse, and what I was doing, was no longer helping as much. That's when I decided to try our CBD oil. I was taking one dropper full of 500mg Citrus daily..
And then one day I was out... UGH!!! It was working so well. I was back out of my braces, no longer in pain. No biggie, I thought... I'll just order some more. That was about 10 days ago....
Saturday evening I started with a headache. A nagging, yucky, won't go away headache.
Sunday morning I woke up nauseous, and with this stupid headache that now hurt to move my eyes.
The day continued. I tried everything I could think of. Oils, caffeine, accupuncture mat, sugar, I even resorted to tylenol. I was worried that maybe my hypoglycemia had taken a turn and I was having problems with my sugar.
Monday continued just about the same way. I wasn't as much of a zombie though and I was able to accomplish some projects.
Then Monday night came... My Ah-ha moment!
It was 2am Tuesday morning when I woke up in terrible pain. It was my thumb. My main source of my arthritic pain. HOLY COW, did it hurt. I immediately got up and put on my brace.
That dreaded brace... but it got me thinking... I haven't had to wear this since I started using my CBD oil. And that's when it hit me. My Ah-ha moment. Am I having a withdrawal from the CBD oil??? I got up and used our dog, Izzy's oil... ewe... I know. But hey, desperate times, call for desperate measures. So, I tried not to think about how many times I had used that dropper in her mouth, and just did it.
Now, hers is a lower dose than mine, so I went ahead and also used my Calm roll-on. I was then able to go back to sleep, and when I woke up this morning, I was a new person!!! Hallelujah!!!
Mine should be here anyday. For now I'm just so grateful that I figured out what was going on. Yes, I googled withdrawals from CBD, and there are conflicting reports. That's why I'm here to tell you that everyone is different, and YES YOU CAN HAVE WITHDRAWAL SYMPTOMS FROM CBD.
*Side note... one of those medications that they put me on 7 years ago, has since been proven to be cancer causing. AGAIN... THANK YOU, JESUS, FOR YOUNG LIVING!
Inhalers, nebulizer, and medications were all a part of my life 7 years ago. Then I learned about Young Living essential oils, which then led me into a cleaner way of living. And today, I'm so grateful that I threw all of this away!!! That's right. I threw away my nebulizer, my inhalers, my hormone patches, my meds for my digestive (including Zantac! Have you heard the commercials that they now know that it was a cancer causing drug that you can now file a lawsuit :/ )
It wasn't easy. It wasn't over night. BUT, I'm so grateful that I took that first step and started down this road by purchasing my Premium Starter Kit. You CAN too! And you won't be alone, we have a wonderful community that is here for you. That will help answer your questions. That will give you direction of where to start. That will support you <3
I know how important it is to be conscious of the powerful side effects of everyday medications. The father of my children, the man I was married to for almost 20 years, the man that would have had so many grandchildren now died at the age of 40 because he was on so many medications. One causing a side effect, that led to having to take another med, and yet another...
We need to be the stewards of our own bodies. Ask questions. Seek out healthier alternatives to everyday issues like heartburn, digestive issues, breathing issues, and so much more! They are out there. I have been hospitalized numerous times due to my asthma. Since beginning my healthier journey 7 years ago, I have had one full blown asthma attack where I was able to open my lungs without an inhaler or nebulizer, and one case where in the past I would have been in a full blown attack; however, I was able to go into the situation fully prepared and support my lungs with strong immunity instead of waiting for them to fail.
Are you ready for a healthier journey? We only have one body. One shot at this life. You are worth a life full of joy, health, and love... Let me help you <3
