Sometimes it can take a long time to find the right path for health. It did in my case anyway. Oh, I am familiar with herbal remedies, but for a true feeling of wellbeing, I was needing more. It was not until 2018 that I was given a gift from a friend that was to change my life for the good. My wonderful husband came home with a little bottle from a friend of mine, he said it was an early Christmas present from him. It was a bottle of CBD Oil.
I was curious because I had heard of the special oil, and I had heard of its positive effects, but I had not even ventured to try it. Now I look back at how stupid that was. I think most of it was based on misconceptions because of the marijuana and the highs associated with it. I now know that is not the case with the Hemp based CBD Oils and products containing CBD Oil.
In 1974, I fell onto a dry bed creek with a trickle of water, a 30 foot drop, then had to climb about 15-20 feet up the embankment to get to the path and walk back to the car. I had friends with me, which helped. Was taken to Kaiser where no x-rays were taken, and I was literally sent home. They did send me to what they thought was appropriate physical therapy, learning the right way to pick up a box. Let’s just say, I didn’t stay in therapy...really? How to pick up boxes after falling many feet? Sheesh.
Then, to add salt to the wound, while I was working at a hospital one of the patients fell on me fainting. I was 5ft 9in & 120# to his 6ft 4in and 350#’s. I have not worked in hospitals since, my body was in no shape for any type of heavy standing, walking, sitting. That was the proverbial straw that broke the camels back...plus the hospital decided to lose the x-ray showing the full herniation and told the witness who I worked with that she’d lose her job if she showed up to the hearing. Yep, you guessed it, she never showed up and I had to venture a new path.
Fast forward to present:
Life has been an amazing journey, even with the slight complications with body inflammations, joint & back pain, and cancer surgeries ( full recoveries, miracle). I have been blessed the last 27 years walking this path with my best friend.
We have a wonderful farm and I do go out and work on it and keep busy. It is for the very fact that I love to keep busy and have a very active farm and orchard to care for, that looking for ways to stay pain free is so important.
Since starting with the CBD oil I am now free of the full body inflammation I once had, and find myself getting outside to enjoy our life fully. I think it’s important to be able to take advantage of a product that will help to allow for fullness of life.
Thank you for being a part of our journey.
