Are you sore when you wake up in the morning?
There are a plethora of natural remedies that help prevent disease, relieve pain naturally, and boost your immune system when you are recovering from disease.
Actually, there are so many natural health alternatives out there, how do you know which ones are the real deal?
Well, I determine what natural remedies are worth my time, and money, by studying their history. That, and listening to people who have tried them.
Consider basil, for instance. Basil has been eaten for centuries. This herb:
- has anti-inflammatory effects
- induces cell death in two-types of breast cancer
- contains potent antioxidants
- regulates glucose levels, reducing blood glucose
- reduces cholesterol and triglycerides
People have used herbs for medicine for millennia, and to date, most countries recognize the benefits of healing herbs. Here is a list of 15 of the most powerful medicinal plants found around the world:
- Tea tree
- Lady ferns
- Cayenne pepper
Now, I will add #16 and #17 – hemp and cannabis.
The Differences Between Hemp and Cannabis
Both hemp and cannabis come from the same plant, Cannabis sativa, but they come from different parts of the plant. There are countless varieties within the species, too.
Cannabis is used for marijuana and is grown for its potent, resinous glands, known as trichomes. Trichomes contain high amounts of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the cannabinoid known for psychoactive properties.
Hemp, on the other hand, contains only trace amounts of THC, and is primarily grown for industrial uses.
Hemp is used for a variety of commercial and industrial products including rope, clothes, food, paper, textiles, plastics, insulation and biofuel. Hemp was one of the first plants to be spun into fiber 10,000 years ago.
Can you imagine the ways that we can save the environment by growing hemp for industry as opposed to avoiding the toxic farm chemicals required to grow cotton?
Hemp For Health
Hemp seeds are used for:
- Animal feed
- Dietary fiber
- Non-daily milk
- Baking additive
Hemp oil is used for:
- Cooking additive
- Salad dressing
- Dietary supplements
- Body care products
Hemp fiber is used for:
- Animal Bedding
Hemp For Food
Raw hemp seeds have been shown in studies to lower blood pressure and cholesterol, accelerate weight loss, support your immune system, control blood sugar levels, and reduce inflammation. And, hemp contains essential amino acids and fatty-acids.
Hemp Seed Oil
Hemp seed oil contains omega fatty acids, which helps build healthy cells, and supports brain and nerve function. Since our bodies can’t produce the omegas, the only source is food.
Throughout history, hemp seed oil has been used as a bath oil, lamp oil, cooking oil and an oil used in paint.
Hemp seed oil is a great beauty product because it is easily absorbed through the pores in your skin. Hemp seed oil has been used for centuries to moisturize, nourish, rejuvenate and protect the skin from damaging sunlight.
Hemp seed oil is found in shampoos, conditioners, lip balms, creams, massage oils, and soaps.
Cannabidiol (CBD) oil is a non-intoxicating marijuana extract used as a medical form of marijuana. CBD oil is credited more and more these days with helping treat a host of medical problems from epileptic seizures to anxiety to inflammation to sleeplessness to pain relief.
Like hemp, CBD contains very little tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) because it is extracted from the flowers and buds of the hemp plant. So, CBD does not cause the “high” that marijuana creates, yet it has very potent healing effects.
Because CBD is produced without any regulation today, it is causing major chaos amid Big Pharma and the AMA – entities that want to monopolize the medical industry and YOUR alternative health options.
The FDA advisory panel has unanimously recommended approval of the CBD medication Epidiolex® to treat two rare forms of childhood epilepsy.
Human clinical trials have shown that CBD is effective in treating anxiety and as an anti-inflammatory medication. This appears to be a healthier option as opposed to addictive pharmaceuticals, you think?
CBD and Cancer
Researched scientists defend that THC and other cannabinoids, such as CBD, slow the growth and/or cause death in certain types of cancer cells growing in the lab.
It’s going to take time, and some fair reporting, before we see the real research going on, but to date, many cancer patients who have been sent home to get their affairs in order have turned to CBD treatments, and their cancer has gone away.
That’s a big statement, but I personally know of many people who have experienced this.
If you have been sent home with no medical solutions to help you, I’d recommend detoxing and trying CBD.
What do you have to lose? Google CBD and cancer.
As new alternative health supplements and treatments come onto the market, do your research, and stay open-minded. Educate yourself yourself on the many, natural alternatives that are available, and alternatives that have been available for centuries.
