Feeling Better Everyday

After seeing the CNN special “A Senior Moment” and hearing about Chronic Health Wisdom coaching, I decided to reach out and see what CBD might do for me. I’m relatively healthy but starting to experience more frequent aches and discomfort as I approach 70. I am more easily irritated and reactive to certain situations some days.

Cheri provided in-depth information about the ECS (endocannabinoid system) and how, as we age, it doesn’t function as efficiently as in our youth. She fulfilled my need for scientific evidence as a retired nurse and hesitant first-time user.

I completed a health questionnaire so she had sufficient information to educate me about/how the various forms of CBD might benefit me or potentially interact with some of my existing prescription medications. At Cheri’s suggestion, I ordered a sample pack. This was helpful because I could try various forms: creams, gummies, and tinctures, as well as several different blends of CBD and botanicals. I started at a low dose and increased it after a week.

I have experienced decreased arthritic pain in my feet and hands, fewer and less intense morning headaches, and generally a more “settled” and less anxious sense of well-being.
