My Healing Journey with CBDa
About a year ago I was at my wits end. I was a trained acupuncturist, holistic health/nutrition coach, Reiki Master, and all around well educated in the realm of health and healthy living, but my quality of life was incredibly poor due to a trifecta of autoimmune diseases. Living with Type 1 diabetes, celiacs disease and fibromyalgia had taken its toll on me emotionally and physically. I had been using every tool at my disposal: energy work, herbs, nutrition, acupuncture, meditation, and more, yet every day I woke up it was an unknown if I was going to be able to be an active participant in my own life.
I felt like a failure. I had years, decades, of health training and yet I could not get my own health under control. The pain was the kicker. Every day I woke up and immediately measured what the pain was. It quite literally was my first thought of the day every day. A good day was when the pain was localized to only one or two parts of my body, and measured at a 6 or so. Bad days was when I couldn’t tell where the pain stopped or started and measured a solid 12 out of 10. Those days I sat on the couch and cried. That was all I had the energy for. Here we had moved to California, were living 10 minutes from the beach, and the idea of even walking to the car was out of the question.
My spirit was crushed. My body was broken. I was desperate. I was determined NOT to go on prescription pain medication. I come from a family history of addiction. This was not going to be my path. What I was afraid of was that sitting at home, all day, every day, was going to be my path.
One day I realized that I I was physically pulling back from my family. I didn’t want to be touched, hugged, even sat too close to, because everything HURT so bad. I knew I needed to do SOMETHING. So I got online. I live in a community where marijuana dispensaries are legal. It was not what I wanted, but I needed to do something. So I searched. What I found was a link to a place called 101 CBD. This place was different. It was not a pot dispensary. I read about raw whole plant derived CBD and how CBD works. I had used CBD in the past, for myself and my pets, with some success, but this product was different, I could tell. No one else had talked about raw whole plant. This struck a chord deep in me. This was something I wanted to try. No, this was something I NEEDED to try.
That day was one of my bad days. I was at a 12 out 10 pain level. I pulled myself out of the house, in the car and went to see what they had to say. When I got there I was struck with how simple the location was, and relieved there were chairs to sit in. I spent an hour talking about their story, the product and my situation. I bought my first bottle of Alleviate and left.
½ dropper under the tongue for 5-7 minutes, the longer the better. Ok. I opened the bottle in the car and put a full dropper under my tongue and drove home. 20 minutes. I did not swallow till I parked. I got out of the car and ran through my body check. Pain…..yes, still there…but…at a 6-7 now. Half the pain I was in 20 minutes ago. I walked in the house, sat down and cried. But this time it was tears of hope.
1 year later I now work for 101 CBD as a health consultant and educator. I work here BECAUSE of the product. It gave me quality of life back. It gave me the ability to commit to working again. I work here because I believe in this product, and the mission of the company.
