How I Use CBD Everyday To Cope With Lyme Disease
I’ve been on muscle relaxers, pain killers, antibiotics, anti-inflammatories, liver support, thyroid meds, heart meds, and anti-anxiety meds. Western medicine hasn’t been able to help me. But CBD has changed my life and allowed me to live beyond my diagnosis.
I was diagnosed with Chronic Lyme Disease in 2003 after years of living in pain, inflammation, and brain fog. I have been on so many medications that now there is a huge fear that my liver is permanently damaged. But now I have CBD, and it is everything I needed. I am seeing my health go from scary to “improving” and my only explanation is CBD.
The primary cause of my pain is fibromyalgia. In my cause, it is a symptom of Lyme Disease. It causes constant pain that is widespread, everywhere from my toes to my head has moments of pain. It causes stiffness in my joints, my neck and back and makes walking difficult. I have an increased sensitivity to smells, lights, temperatures, and most recently noise. My doctors have tried to help the muscle pain with physical therapy and muscle relaxers. But the pain never ends.
I’ve tried everything to try to get through the day and feel better. I’ve done yoga, which I love but it inflames my joints, and the stiffness of my body makes it difficult. Going to the gym in the morning exhausts me so much that I am useless for the rest of the day. Acupuncture, massage therapy, and physical therapy help, but don’t last long.
CBD To The Rescue
The only thing that I have found that helps me to get through the day and actually to be able to live a full life is CBD.
Most of the products I use are low or no THC. I don’t want to get high or feel like I have more of a haze than the brain fog that I usually have.
Every day I use a tincture called Joy Organics Orange. It is a 500mg strength, and it is simply a dropper full of orange CBD full-spectrum CBD oil. I use it each morning after I brush my teeth. After using it, not only do I feel better, my teeth and gums are in better shape.
It’s also part of my bedtime routine.
My dogs even take CBD every day. They love the treats and Wynter, who is getting older has joint pain sometimes and gets a few of Pet tincture drops to settle her pain down and help to her move better.
We know that CBD isn’t for everyone. And understand that we are in no way saying that you should use this instead of seeing your doctor because I still see my doctors all the time and talk to them about my CBD use. And I know that not everyone can use CBD, but this is how I’m living with Lyme Disease and I hope that by talking about how I use it, that I can bring some relief to someone else out there who is also feeling terrible or maybe clear up some of the mystery around CBD use.
If you are going to try it, I highly recommend making sure you buy from a reputable company. Look at the testing records that reputable CBD companies have available for you to look through. We will talk more about how to read testing labels coming up soon. But for now, we love Joy Organics CBD.
