Knocking out sinus pain with PEMF

*This post contains affiliate links

oska sinuses rose

Are seasonal allergies preventing you from enjoying life?  Springtime blooms used to make me miserable.  Swollen/watery/itchy eyes, a stuffy/runny nose, and painful facial pressure left me with no other option other than to pop daily allergy pills.  Sometimes a second or third was needed, which left me drowsy or knocked me out completely.  That is until this year!

Fifteen months ago I began using PEMF therapy with Oska Pulse daily.  If you haven’t heard of it, Oska Pulse is a drug-free pain-relief device that uses pulsed electromagnetic fields.  Since I have reaped the benefits of pain-relief in regards to my chronic illnesses which include but are not limited to; fibromyalgia, psoriatic arthritis, psoriasis, degenerative disc disease, endometriosis, etc.  What I didn’t expect to experience was improvement in regards to my seasonal allergies.

PEMF therapy hasn’t cured me from my seasonal allergies.  Instead it has reduced the amount of inflammation that I experience.  In the past 15 months I have continually reduced the amount of allergy medication that I was taking.  Instead of taking one or more pills on a daily basis, this spring I have only needed one or three pills per month! When I feel my sinuses swelling I run one or more PEMF treatments on my face or forehead.  That alone is usually all I need to reduce the inflammation and pain. The longer I wait to treat, the more treatments I have to run.

To be able to reduce pain and inflammation without putting drugs into my system is a wonderful feeling.  I am not a doctor or scientist, I can’t explain how this device works.  What I can do is suggest that you click here to read about a study about PEMF therapy and sinusitis.  I also suggest that you click here to learn more about how PEMF therapy combats inflammation.  You may also follow my progress and see how all the different ways that PEMF therapy has improved my health and life by clicking here.

BioCBD+ “I am Peace” Vape Cartridge Combo Pack Review

If you have read my reviews of BioCBD+’s capsules and topical oil, you already know that I am in love with this company and the products they produce.  Everything about them is high quality and no other company that I have tried comes close to the potency and effectiveness that they deliver.

If you haven’t tried CBD yet, you may not realize that it is available in many forms.  There are CBD edibles, capsules, topical oils, oils that you can ingest, and vape products.  However, not all CBD products are as effective as others.  If you don’t achieve your desired effect from one product, try another.  With that said, don’t waste your time or money on other brands when you can get the best from BioCBD+.

Do you know the difference between THC and CBD?  Are you familiar with how CBD can help you?  Do you know which form would be best for you and your symptoms?  Watch the 100’s of FREE expert videos at Green Flower to find out!  Click here to register!

 

What’s in it?

The I am Peace vape from BioCBD+ delivers a dose of pure, extra-strength hemp-derived cannabidiol (CBD) oil with NO THC (the psychoactive cannabinoid found in marijuana), NO nicotine, NO chemical fillers and NO artificial flavoring.  Other companies add PG, PEG, VG or artificial flavorings.  This product tastes great without artificial flavoring! It is contains organically grown, full-spectrum hemp CBD, plus a proprietary essential oil blend of Lemongrass, Lavender, Clary Sage & Bergamot.  The taste and scent is mild and soothing.

Each combo pack includes case, vape cartridge, battery, and charger. Order yours here!

What comes in the combo pack?

Each combo pack includes a case, vape cartridge, battery, and charger.  You can also purchase the cartridge and battery kit (batter, charger, and case) separately.  The battery stick (vape pen) fits well with other cartridges with a 510 thread.

What does it help with and how do I use it?

CBD is known to reduce anxiety, depression, pain relief, and insomnia.  I use it for anxiety, insomnia, and as a muscle relaxer.  For anxiety I only need one or two puffs in the morning and occasionally in the afternoon, LA traffic is enough to make anyone anxious.  Three to five puffs helps relax my body and mind and helps me sleep at night.  Whenever I feel my back or neck muscles tightening I take two to four puffs to relax them and then go on my merry way.  Because it does NOT contain THC, you will not experience the high associated with medical marijuana.

Using the vape pen is easy.  You just screw the cartridge to the battery stick and voila, you are ready to vape! Place the cartridge to your lips and take short puffs to avoid overheating the CBD or burning out your cartridge.  With each inhalation; you’ll receive about 1-2mg of CBD.

wp-1517251040065.jpg

In this picture you can see how little I have used in the past two weeks. This is with daily morning and evening use and occasional midday use.

How long does each cartridge last?

Each cartridge contains 500mg of CBD/hemp oil.  How long it lasts depends upon how often you use it.  Typically one cartridge will last anywhere from one to two months.  In the picture above you can see how little I have used in the past two weeks.  I used it every morning and evening and often during the afternoon.  Besides the potency and effectiveness of this product, how long until I will need to replace my cartridge is a huge selling point for me.  Compared to other products that sell for less, this one will last me twice as long, if not longer which will result in spending less.

Final thoughts

You can’t go wrong with this or any product from BioCBD+.  They truly are the best! I do however have one complaint.  My complaint has nothing to do with the CBD as it is fantastic, but instead with the case.  If I want to carry my pen in the case I have to disassemble it and then reassemble whenever I want to use it.  I wish the case was long enough to be able to keep the cartridge and battery stick together.  Overall, you will not find another quality CBD product that is as affordable and effective as this one.

DermaWand Review

DermaWand Review

20180111_195647.jpg

*Disclosure.  Although I have received this product to review, all thoughts and experiences are mine and were in no way influenced by the company.  This post contains affiliate links.

If you haven’t heard of DermaWand, it is a device that claims it can make you look years younger without chemicals or having surgery. Soon after I turned 49 I was given the opportunity to try DermaWand.  While I am not against plastic surgery, I have had too many complications from past surgeries related to my chronic illnesses that I refuse to ever go under the knife unless it is to save my life and the last thing I want to risk is side effects from Botox.  However, I also don’t want to enter my 50’s looking older than I am.  When asked to try DermaWand I figured why not!!

What does DermaWand do?

DermaWand is an electrical device that uses the same technology as the big radio frequency machines that doctors and medical specialists use for treatments to help manage the signs of premature aging, except with a lower amplitude that’s perfect for everyday use. It produces younger looking skin by stimulating your skin while also delivering thermal energy and enriched oxygen.

20180103_104443.jpg

Is it easy to use?

YES!!! As someone who has multiple chronic illnesses the last thing I wanted to do was add something more to my daily routine.  I panicked when I read that the kit came with exercise instructions.  I thought what the heck did I get myself into!!!  My fears were put to rest after I read the instruction booklet.  The exercises are actually different ways to move the device around your face to achieve better results and to help you tackle problem areas.  Applying the treatment to my face takes no longer than giving my teeth a good brushing.  Some days I may spend more time focusing on problem areas, but for the most part I am done within minutes.  It has been easy to add to my morning and bedtime routines.

Does it hurt?

DermaWand recommends starting at the lowest level on the dial and working your way up.  While it didn’t hurt my skin the first time I applied it to my skin, I did experience a slight stinging sensation for a little while after application in a few areas.  By my third day of using it I stopped feeling any discomfort and a week later I was ready and able to start increasing the intensity of my treatments.  Fast forward a month and I am using my DermaWand on the highest setting with the exception to the area around my eyes and above my lips. For those areas I turn it down to level 3.

Does it work?

Yes!!! I am thrilled with my results and can’t wait to see how much more the appearance of my skin improves the longer I use it.  While I use it on my entire face, I have been giving my neck extra attention.  In the before and after photo below you can see how loose and wrinkled the skin under my chin and neck were before using DermaWand.  In the after picture you can clearly see how much tighter and smoother my skin is just after one month of use.  Another perk of using this device has been winning the battle with pesky blackheads.  I had a few stubborn blackheads that disappeared after a couple of treatments.  I love how tight and smooth my skin is becoming.  In fact I love it so much that I am no longer worried about leaving the house without foundation on. Most days the only thing I apply after my moisturizer is my color correcting crème.

How much does it cost?

The cost varies depending on which kit you choose and whether you want to make payments.

Through the DermaWand website you can just pay a processing fee of $14.95 and then not have to make a payment for 30 days.  Approximately 30 days after receiving it your credit card will be charged $39.95, the first of three payments and a shipping fee of $19.95.  Total cost to you $154.75.  This kit includes one DermaWand device, cosmetic bag, instructional DVD, beauty guide, preface treatment, hydra support, hydra infusion, and skin mist.

Not Pot Review
*This post contains affiliate links, but all thoughts and opinions are mine.

Hello my lovelies! I have a fantastic CBD product to share with you! While I have reviewed many CBD capsules, oils, and lotions, this is the first edible I have tried.  Like with all products, I was skeptical of how beneficial this product would be.  Thankfully for me and you, it has proven to be a fabulous product that delivers on its promise.

What is Not Pot?

Not Pot are cute heart shaped chocolates that contain CBD.  The CBD is derived from industrial hemp and does not contain the psychoactive properties that medical marijuana does.  Translation: You won’t get high!  Each piece contains approximately 2-3mgs of CBD.

What does it do?

Not Pot has helped tremendously with daytime anxiety.  I am unable to use other CBD products during the day because they are too strong and put me to sleep.  With just one heart shaped chocolate I feel normal, not agitated nor lazy.  I was a bit concerned that I would need more at bedtime, but again proved to be the magic number.  The difference between Not Pot and other brands of CBD at bedtime is that Not Pot doesn’t force me to sleep.  Instead it gently relaxes my body and prevents my thoughts from rambling allowing me to go to sleep when I want to.  Full disclosure, like with the other CBD products I have reviewed I take it at bedtime along with 10mg of THC (medical marijuana).

What’s it made of?

If you are expecting a sweet treat, you will be disappointed.  Not Pot is more of a dark chocolate but with less flavor.  Which is actually a good thing as it would become an expensive snack if you kept on popping them because you liked the taste.  What I do like is that it is made with natural ingredients and not the fake crap that just makes us sicker.  Here are a few of the key ingredients:

CBD-Rich Hemp Oil: A super potent, super pure concentration of CBD that comes from industrial hemp (not marijuana).

Raw Cacao: A rich source of antioxidants (40x more than blueberries!) and phenylethylamine that help promote the release of feel-good neurotransmitters like endorphins and serotonin.

Ashwagandha: An ancient herb used in Ayurveda medicine that’s classified as an adaptogen because of its ability to combat stress.

Maple Sugar: A natural, low glycemic sweetener that doesn’t cause those “hangry” blood sugar spikes!

FULL INGREDIENTS
Organic Cacao Nibs, Organic Maple Sugar, Organic Cacao Butter, Organic Cacao Beans, Organic Vanilla Bean, Organic Cannabinoid-Rich Hemp Oil, Organic Ashwagandha

Will it break the bank?

Not Pot is also one of the more affordable products available.  There are 30 chocolates in each jar and one jar is priced at $29.99.  I have spoken with the owner of Not Pot and she has created a discount code for my readers.  Use promo code DIVA to save 20% off of your first order.  You can also save 10% by subscribing to have it delivered monthly or every two months.

Not Pot will not knock you out, put you to sleep, or turn your body to jelly, but it will help you remain calm, focused, and feel normal. Oh and one more thing….. check out these adorable stickers that came with my order!

 

 

HEMPZ Body Moisturizer Review

HEMPZ Body Moisturizer Review

*This post contains affiliate links.

Okay gals, whip out your credit card because I have finally found a hemp pain relief lotion that not only works, but smells great too!!!!!  Seriously, this is a first for me! Until recently, every hemp/cbd lotion or oil that I have tried has had some type of odor.  Some had a skunky scent, while others were similar to the likes of Bengay and Tiger Balm.

But does it work?

First let’s talk pain relief, because let’s face it, it doesn’t matter how great something smells if it doesn’t work.  I will admit that I was skeptical of the pain relief that HEMPZ could provide.  I mean seriously, how could a 2.25oz bottle that sold for under $6 compare to my lotions and oils that cost 5 to 10 times more??!!  Well my friends, it not only relieves my pain from fibromyalgia, it does it just as well as any other cbd lotion/oil that I have tried.  The only difference is now I smell good too!!!  The only difference I have experienced is that I need to use more and apply it more often compared to the other products that I have used.  However, the affordability of HEMPZ makes the amount I need to use a non-issue. Click here for list of ingredients which includes Cannabis Sativa Seed Oil .

OOOH that smell!!!

I am head over heals with HEMPZ lotions and plan to try all of their fabulous scents.  The one I am reviewing is their original scent.  Personally I think it has a light rose scent to it and I love it because it isn’t overbearing.  Finally a hemp lotion that I can use in public without people wondering what that smell is.!!! HaHaHaHa.!!!! Some of the other scents available are: Green Tea and Asian Pear, Pomegranate, Vanilla and Plum, Coconut and Watermelon, Sweet Pineapple and Honey Melon,   Tahitian Vanilla & Ginger, and how is this for a holiday treat: Frosted Peppermint and Vanilla Sugar!!!!!

No need to take out a loan!

This lotion not only works and smells fantastic, it is also affordable!!!! The cost of many hemp/cbd lotions and oils is what often keeps people from trying them.  However, you have no excuse to not try HEMPZ, this product is the most affordable pain relief product that delivers on its promise to reduce pain that I have come across.  Depending on the scent or type of lotion you choose a 2.25oz bottle will run between $5-10 and a 17oz bottle between $10-20.

CBD Bio Naturals Review

wp-1511288406273.png

I recently had the pleasure of trying CBD Bio Naturals’ Ultra Premium 250mg CBD Hemp in MCT Oil. *Disclosure: I received this product as a gift from the company. All opinions are my own and I was in no way influenced by the company.*

Quality you can trust

CBD Bio Naturals’ farms do not use synthetic fertilizers, herbicides, or pesticides, they follow a strict organic farming practice.  There are no chemical solvents used in their extraction process.  Instead they use pure, clean CO2 gas.  Their hemp is grown, extracted, and bottled in Colorado. Besides hemp, the only other ingredient is MTC oil, an oil derived from coconut oil.

Why CBD?

More like why NOT CBD?! Seriously, CBD helps with so many different symptoms and you don’t have to experience the high you get from THC.  Here are some of the ways you may benefit from using CBD oil:

  1. Heart
    CBD may improve heart function and prevent heart disease.*
  2. Brain
    May reduce feelings of anxiety and promote relaxation
    Some studies show CBD also relieves symptoms  seizures in some people.*
  3. Lungs
    Early studies show that CBD might inhibit the spread of cancer cells to other areas of the body, especially aggressive breast cancer tumor cells.*
  4. Colon
    CBD has been shown to reduce inflammation, and may offer relief for those with inflammatory bowel diseases such as Crohn’s, IB, UC.*
  5. Stomach
    May relieve nausea and vomiting due to chemotherapy. Promotes a normal appetite. MCT oil is naturally antibacterial and antiviral and may help to promote a healthy digestive system by fighting bad bacteria.*
  6. Liver
    MCT oil is easy to digest and is suitable for those with digestive problems or have gallbladder problems. MCTs are processed by the liver, so they are easily absorbed and provide sustained energy, without raising blood sugar levels.
    CBD also reduces liver inflammation and may keep your liver healthy.*

Why I recommend this product

  1. Taste: Not every CBD product has a pleasant or tolerable flavor.  I felt the flavor was mild.  In fact, it was the taste of the MCT oil that stood out more.
  2. Effectiveness: When placed under or on top of my tongue, I could feel the full effects within 30-60 minutes.  It helped reduce my nighttime anxiety and relax my muscles which allowed me to enjoy a fantastic night’s sleep.
  3. Strength: Each bottle contains 250mg CBD.  It is estimated to contain 15 doses (one full dropper) per bottle making each does approximately 16mgs each.  You can use more or less as needed.
  4. Affordability: At $38 per bottle CBD Bio Naturals is one of the more affordable options available.
