The Disabled Diva’s Review of Earthley Good Night Lotion

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Do leg cramps or muscle spasms wake you up in the middle of the night?  *Yep!

Do restless legs prevent you from falling asleep? *Raises hand!

Weather changes like heatwaves or the pressure pushing in storms have always caused my legs to cramp and spasm.  However, prior to using topical CBD lotions and oils, leg cramps and spasms were an every day and night occurrence.

When I saw that Earthley had a lotion to help with restless legs, I just had to try it!!!

Although CBD lotions and topical oils are fantastic for restless legs, cramps, and spasms, they are also expensive!!! My first thought was how great would this be if it worked, because it would give those who couldn’t afford a quality topical CBD product an affordable option.

Wondering if Good Night Lotion from Earthley works?  Keep reading…….

Love at first night

OMG!! I was skeptical, as I am with every product that claims to help reduce pain or symptoms from my chronic illnesses. However, I was pleasantly surprised.

As you know, I have a long list of chronic illnesses.  They include, but are not limited to: fibromyalgia, psoriatic arthritis, degenerative disc disease, coccydynia, and abdominal adhesions (result of endometriosis and surgical scarring).  They all have a role in the pain that I experience throughout my body.  Each night, even after I have treated my abdomen all day with PEMF therapy and have vaped my evening dose of cannabis, I still struggle to get my legs, lower back muscles, and abdominal muscles to relax.

On that first night, I rubbed Good Night Lotion on hips, lower back, legs, and feet. At first I felt nothing different, but the label did say to do it 10-15 minutes before going to bed making me think that maybe there is a slight delay in effect.

I was right!! Soon after I crawled under my blankets and arranged my pillows, I felt the areas that I had applied the lotion melt.  Seriously, it felt like they had turned into melted butter.  Of course now the tension in my neck, shoulders, wrists, and abdominal muscles was more noticeable, so I applied the lotion to those areas as well.  I had the best sleep ever!!! And the best part was waking up without my muscles feeling tight or sore.

To put this product to the test, I continued to do the same night after night for an entire week.  I picked an amazing week to do so, as it was a stormy one!!  And guess what? I wasn’t woken up with leg cramps or spasms, nor did my legs feel restless like they would normally during that type of weather.

To further my test of the product, I discontinued use the following week, also a stormy week.  Can you guess what happened?  I experienced horrific spasms.  Seriously, knots so bad that I would wake up crying and screaming.

As you may have guessed, I quickly resumed use of Good Night Lotion.

I want to note that I am not stingy in my use of the product.  I don’t use a smidgen, I use a lot!  However, my body has always been deficient in magnesium which may be why I need more than what is suggested on the packaging.  But so far so good… I haven’t had any unpleasant or unwanted side effects from this product like I have from any other magnesium supplement I have tried in the past.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

$$$$$$

The best part about this product, aside from it working better than I expected it to, is that even with the amounts that I use each night, it won’t bankrupt me!

It is available in two forms, one with lavender essential oils and unscented.  I am using the lavender one and haven’t had a problem.  And I am someone who has to buy almost everything unscented or for sensitive skin. Both cost the same amount and are available in 4 and 8oz jars.

Natural and Alternative Sleep Tips

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Are you tired of being tired?

I was!

Want to fall asleep faster?

I did!

Does sleeping through the night sound like a fairytale?

There was a time when I believed that chronic pain from fibromyalgia, psoriatic arthritis, degenerative disc disease, coccydynia, and abdominal adhesions would never allow me to sleep through the night.

I tried every sleeping pill out there…. Unfortunately, I am one of those freaks who either suffers from the worst possible side effects or experiences the complete opposite effect of pharmaceutical medications.  With that said, you may have guessed that instead of inducing sleepiness, sleeping pills, both prescription and over the counter, kept me wide awake.

My only hope of sleeping was to take high dosages of opioids and valium.  This was a dangerous cocktail as I risked overdosing and those pills were also causing more health issues.

In 2012 I made the decision to stop addressing symptoms with pharmaceutical medications and to start experimenting with natural and alternative methods.  I am so glad that I did, because the results have been phenomenal.

I went from someone who often couldn’t sleep for more than 20 minutes and felt lucky to get 2-4 hours of sleep per night, to sleeping 7-10 hours every night.

And here is how I achieved it:

Cannabis

I began with cannabis, specifically edibles. The reason I chose edibles in the beginning is that the pain relieving effect lasts longer than when I smoke or vape marijuana.  Edibles provided the all-night relief my body desperately needed.

PEMF Therapy

There are reports of how PEMF therapy can help with sleep disorders.  Click here to read some.  Whether it can or not, I don’t know… What I do know is this, PEMF therapy significantly reduces the pain and inflammation I experience from my chronic illnesses.  Less pain makes it easier to fall and stay asleep.  Click here to discover all the ways that PEMF therapy has improved my chronic life and then visit Oska Wellness to find out why it was able to help me.  (Shhh don’t tell anyone, okay, who am I kidding, please shout it from the rooftops, that everyone can save $55 with my discount code DIVA.)

CBD

CBD is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid.  It provides muscle relaxation, calms anxiety, helps with depression, and provides pain relief.  And for those who don’t like the high that accompanies cannabis, CBD is the perfect alternative.  It provides much of the same relief without the high.

What form I use varies night to night.  Depending on how tightly wound my muscles are I may vape it or when I need a stronger dosage I will place 25-30mgs of a CBD isolate under my tongue.  Sometimes I unwind by putting the isolate into a cup of hot chocolate or tea.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Good Night Lotion

Each night as I am getting ready for bed (10-15 minutes before) I rub my legs, feet, belly, shoulders, and neck with Earthley’s Good Night Lotion.  It is a magnesium body lotion that promotes restful sleep, helps with leg cramps, occasional headaches, and constipation.  With all the storms that southern California has been hit with recently, I began having nightly leg cramps.  Eating a banana a day wasn’t cutting it, so I tried this lotion.

I have been using it nightly for the past two weeks and although the weather has yet to stabilize, I am no longer suffering from leg cramps.  Because of the turmoil that abdominal adhesions are causing within my belly, I have been experiencing horrendous muscle spasms throughout the area.  That is until I began rubbing my belly with this lotion.  Click here to learn more about it.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Follow the leader

If you are like me and do not work outside your home or don’t have to follow a rigid schedule, listen to your body.  When there is a shift in seasons or a major weather upset, my sleep pattern gets thrown for a loop.  This often results in my living like a vampire for a week or two.  In the past I have tried fighting it, but that only induced a higher level of fatigue.  By giving in and allowing my body to sleep when it wants my body and mind get the 7-10 hours they need to function.  Eventually, my body gets back on track and I return to a normal schedule.

The Benefits of Charcoal Soap

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Have you tried charcoal soap?

I recently tried it and let me tell you this….. I would have no problem landing on Santa’s naughty list if he would be willing to drop bars of charcoal soap in lieu of lumps of charcoal into my stocking.

Seriously! Who knew that something so simple and pure could make my skin feel so good??!!

Before I share the brand I tried and why I love it so much, I want to share some of the benefits of washing your face with charcoal soap.

Benefits

* Treats oily skin

Charcoal soap removes dirt and excess oil from your skin.

* Provides flawless skin

Charcoal soap controls facial oil and draws impurities that builds up in pores and removes dead cells.

* Treats acne

It removes toxins and skin impurities which helps in the treatment of acne. It may also clear facial marks resulting from acne.

* Reduces pore size

Charcoal soap extracts dirt and grime. It also treats clogged pores and reduces their size.

* Makes skin tighter and firmer

Charcoal has the ability to make the skin firmer and tighter.

* Suitable for all skin types

Charcoal soap is suitable for every skin type. While it extracts the excessive oil from oily skin, it moisturizes and nourishes dry skin. It is also suitable for sensitive skin. It treats skin allergies and redness on the face.

* Prevents premature aging

It helps to rid your face of wrinkles and fine lines, preventing your skin from looking old, dull, and tired.

* Treats psoriasis and eczema

Charcoal soap is effective for the treatment of dry, cracked skin.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

My experience

My daughter has been using charcoal soap on her face for a couple of weeks and I have used it for a week.  I have psoriasis, while my daughter has eczema and acne.  We will post a before and after review of the product we choose to try in a few weeks.  But for now we can share the following: Our skin has never felt softer! My daughter’s face isn’t red like it has been from her severe acne.

Our product of choice

There are many charcoal soaps to choose from.  But I didn’t want to try just any brand…. I wanted to make sure the soap I purchased was pure and natural.  That is why I chose the Charcoal Facial Bar from Earthley.  Their soap is made with whole plant-based ingredients to cleanse gently.

You won’t find unpronounceable ingredients in this bar of soap.  Instead you will find: Olive oil, coconut oil, avocado oil, coconut milk, mango butter, castor oil, and activated charcoal. It is available with a spearmint scent or unscented. Spearmint scent has spearmint essential oil.  I chose the unscented and love it!! Not sure if it is just my daughter and I who haven’t noticed any odor with the unscented or if it truly has no scent. I was worried about what the natural scent would be like and turns out I had nothing to worry about.

Another thing I love about this product is how quickly it lathers up and how easily it washes off of my face.  My daughter and I both agree that our skin feels cleaner, tighter, and smoother than ever before.  We can’t wait to see how it looks with continued use.  Click here to try it yourself!

The Disabled Diva’s Review of Earthley Elderberry Elixir

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In my quest to care for my health as naturally as possible, I decided to take the recommendation of a friend and try the herbal products from Earthley.  Those of you who are members of my product pick and making pain our bitch pain groups on Facebook may have seen the post where I shared what I ordered.  Want to know what I purchased? Click here to join my groups or wait for the next review to be published here.  Because it is flu season, I have decided to review the elderberry elixir first.

*Disclosure: This post includes affiliate links. Meaning that at no additional cost to you, I receive a commission when you make a purchase through my links. The proceeds earned fund the giveaways I host in my Facebook groups.

You probably know elderberries as delicious, sweet little berries. To be honest, I had never heard of elderberries before and had no clue that they are a potent cold and flu fighter too!!! They are loaded with tons of antioxidant properties.  So not only will it help prevent me from catching colds and the flu, it will help me fight them off better if I do get one.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

One of the reasons I have chosen the elderberry elixir from Earthley, is that most natural remedies that I have tried in the past took longer to reduce my symptoms than a prescription would have.  While I tried to muster through illnesses without a prescription, I really wanted something that could work as fast or faster.  And that is what this elixir does.  See the chart above to see the difference between using an elderberry elixir and the prescription medication Oseltamivir.

So far so good…. But does what looks good on paper really translate into those results in real life? So far, in my limited use, I would have to say YES!!

In case you didn’t know, Earthley offers FREE shipping on all orders over $50!!! I placed my order on Monday night, it was processed on Tuesday, and delivered on Thursday!

Before I share my experience with this product, I want to explain what has been going on with me health wise. I caught a nasty case of bronchitis back on Thanksgiving day.  I didn’t feel like myself again until New Year’s Day.  But even after that I was still experiencing a lot of drainage, way more than I typically do from seasonal allergies. I had also experienced a few sinus related headaches and pain around my eyes.

I took my first dose Thursday evening. The next morning I knew something was happening.  The first thing I noticed is that my head felt empty, not like brainless empty (ha ha), but not filled with fluid.  Seriously, I had no clue just how impacted my sinuses were until this moment.  With each dose, the pressure continues to decrease.  It really is an amazing feeling.  To be honest, I have never felt this kind of relief from any sinus product in the past, so to have something that is able to reduce it without putting harmful chemicals into my body is a wonderous thing.  It is Sunday evening as I write this review and the sensation that I feel is that of having all the mucus that was impacted around my eyes is being pulled to my nose.  Yesterday the pressure was located at the top of my nose, whereas this evening it is near my nostrils.  With any luck everything will come pouring out on Monday!! BTW I will update this post later in the week to share my results.

One thing I should mention is that I am also taking two other Earthley products with the elderberry elixir.  Because I felt like I was coming down with something, really had no idea how badly impacted my sinuses were, I combined Feel Better Fast and Immune-Biotic with my Elderberry Elixir.  Immune-Biotic is a short term use.  I will have to stop use of that in a few more days.  However, I may be able to stop sooner if my sinuses clear out like I predict.

I am looking forward to using this product daily, even when I am not fighting a cold. A close friend and her family uses this product and so far they have yet to catch any of the bugs or viruses that are knocking everyone else down.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here are a few more reasons that I have chosen and suggest that you consider choosing the elderberry elixir from Earthley:

In addition to elderberries, they add in mullein (another potent respiratory remedy), clove and ginger (anti-inflammatory herbs), and astragalus (one of the best immune boosters). It is perfect for colds, coughs, sore throats, and more, in a shelf-stable elderberry drops tincture. Just add elderberry drops to water, juice, smoothie, or your preferred drink every day!
Whether you order the adult or children’s version you can be assured that neither contains:
sugars
colors
flavors
preservatives
artificial anything

One of my concerns was the taste.  While I will force myself to take something no matter how wretched it tastes or smells, my daughter won’t!!!  I have been adding it to a splash of juice and can’t even tell that I have added anything.  Thankfully, my daughter has had the same experience!!!

*UPDATE 2/2/2019: My sinuses are clearer than they have ever been and I feel great.  I am now only taking the elderberry elixir daily and Feel Better Fast when I feel like I have extra mucus.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ten Signs That You Need a New Pain Management Plan

Ten Signs That You Need a New Pain Management Plan

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Is your pain management plan working?

Here are 10 signs that it is NOT!

1. I often or always have to cancel plans

How many dates/appointments/commitments have you had to cancel in the past month?  How about past week? If you are canceling due to pain from your chronic illnesses more than once or twice a month, you need to make some changes.  It could be the products you are using to combat pain with or your own behavior that needs to change.  Are you respecting your body and modifying how you live? Do you pace your activity or are you running yourself into the ground?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

2. I dread waking up in the morning

Do you wake up with  a pain level that is equal or worse than what you went to bed with? That was my life when I was treating my chronic pain with prescription medications.  Opioids may have masked my pain enough to allow me to fall asleep or they would knock me out, but they didn’t improve my life.  Each morning I would wake up in more pain than I went to bed with and almost always woke to a headache.  An effective pain management plan shouldn’t have you dreading mornings, it should make you look forward to the next day.  I began enjoying mornings the day after I began medicating with cannabis.  As time passed, mornings became the best part of my day.  Since adding PEMF therapy, I look forward to waking up and going on adventures every day!

 

 

 

 

 

 

3. I am afraid to go to sleep

Do you fear going to bed? I did! Why? 1. Pain rarely allowed me to sleep more than a few hours at a time. 2. Unless I drugged myself to the point of passing out, pain would keep me awake.  3. I knew that my pain level would only increase throughout the night.  My painsomnia became so bad that I was rarely sleeping more than 2-4 hours at a time. I tried doing everything possible to distract my mind and would be up doing crossword puzzles or playing Words with Friends.  Since switching to a natural and alternative approach to pain relief, I no longer fear going to bed.  In fact I look forward to it.  Why? Because my pain management plan doesn’t just mask pain.  It actually addresses my pain sources.  Instead of hiding my pain for a few hours, it promotes healing.  I reach restorative levels of sleep and wake up ready to take on the day!

4. I had to give up my favorite hobbies

If the reasons you have for not being able to continue with your favorite hobby are chronic pain and fatigue, you need a new pain management plan.  Combined with self care practices of pacing, acknowledging your body’s boundaries, and asking for assistance, a good pain management plan should allow you to do what you want.  During the first 5 years of treating my conditions naturally and alternatively, I was able to resume my favorite past times, just not in the way that I had done them before. Then approximately a year and a half after adding PEMF therapy to my plan, I was able to start partaking in those activities more like I did before my chronic illnesses hijacked my life.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

5. I spend my days and nights home alone

If chronic pain is preventing you from leaving the house, it is time to make a change.  However, before you make a change, make sure that you are doing everything possible to get out.  For example, are you willing to accept assistance from a friend or family member? Are you okay with using a mobility aid? Are your expectations of a day out with your illness/disability realistic?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

6. Every time I turn around, I am being prescribed something new to combat side effects from my pain management plan.

How many prescriptions are you taking in hopes of relieving pain from your chronic illness?  I was given one prescription when I was first diagnosed, then within months a second, then a year later another, and so on and so on until I reached the point of being prescribed ten prescriptions.  Sadly not one of them addressed my illnesses or pain, instead they occasionally masked my pain. My pain progressed quickly and new symptoms were popping up all the time.  But these symptoms were NOT from my illnesses, even though everyone including my doctors blamed them on my diseases.  The new symptoms were actually side-effects from the medications that were supposed to be helping me.  Funny how I never had urinary tract infections before taking opioids, to getting them several times a year after.  Then NOT having another since quitting opioids six years ago. Don’t blindly accept that every new symptom is part of your illness, question everything!!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

7.  I get anxious when I think about leaving the house

Before treating my chronic pain naturally and alternatively, I developed an unhealthy fear of leaving the house.  I feared the pain I would experience just to get ready.  The fear of how much pain I would endure while out paralyzed me. The fear of how long it would take to return to the pain level that I could at least exist at kept me home.  Does this sound familiar?  A good pain management plan, along with healthy self care practices, will allow you to get out without fear.  This fear carried over after I switched my pain management plan, but after seeing and most importantly feeling how much my recovery time decreased, I learned to work with my body and became less fearful.  Now? I am fearless.  I don’t do what I can’t handle, I listen to my body, and most importantly I have a pain management plan that allows my body to heal from any pain accrued throughout my day.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

8. I am always angry

How’s your attitude? During my pharma years, I was angry, bitter, and to be brutally honest I was not someone I would want to be around today.  At the time I blamed my chronic pain, but that wasn’t the only reason.  Pharmaceutical pain medications made me aggressive, short tempered, edgy, and depressed.  Since ditching pharma, I am happy, fun, excited for life, patient, and have a zest for life that I never thought was possible to have with multiple chronic illnesses.  If you are struggling with depression, take a look at your medication and talk to your doctor asap!

9.   I just want to enjoy a day doing what I want and not have to spend weeks or months recovering from it.

If your body is requiring weeks or months to recover from an outing or activity, you may need to alter your pain management plan.  You may also need to make adjustments to how you go about what you are doing.  Your body is different and you need to accept it.  Working with it and making modifications is the best thing you will ever do for your life and body.

 

10. I want to die

If you think that dying would be better than living and are considering suicide, seek help NOW!! Contact the Suicide Prevention Life line at  1-800-273-8255 or suicidepreventionlifeline.org .  A poor pain management and lack of a healthy self care plan will only intensify this feeling.  Don’t give up! Even if you can’t see it now, your life is worth living and there is hope for pain relief.  The process of figuring out the changes that need to take place isn’t easy and often requires getting over our own egos, but it is so worth it!!! Imagine if I had committed suicide like I had planned in 2012?  Look through my Instagram and Facebook feeds and see everything I would have missed.  Who knew I would be able to do what I can today? I sure didn’t?  But I am glad that I decided to hang around.  With a strong determination to improve how I lived and treated chronic pain I have learned to love life, even the bad days.

Countdown to 50: To make my dreams come true, I had to open my mind

 

Read series from the beginning.

I had to open my mind to make my dreams come true!

Only a few more days left!!!!!

Had I not opened my mind and allowed myself to believe that there had to be a better way to treat chronic pain from fibromyalgia, psoriatic arthritis, psoriasis, endometriosis, and degenerative disc disease, I wouldn’t be here today.  Wondering what it was that I needed to open my mind to?  Read on….

Prescriptions aren’t always the answer

To be clear, I am not completely anti-medicine.  I am however against medications that don’t enhance or improve a condition/symptom or that make life harder or more painful for the patient.  When chronic pain first hijacked my body, I went to my doctor knowing that his answer would come from his prescription pad.  What I didn’t expect was that each pill would end up making me sicker and destroy life as I knew it.

Cannabis isn’t just for hippies

I resisted trying cannabis for many reasons.  One being that I had a bad experience with laced pot in my younger years.  Another was that I didn’t want to labeled a stoner.  Click here to see what other reasons I have heard for not trying cannabis for pain relief. I had to open my mind and recognize that it wasn’t just hippies that were smoking it, there were already tons of patients successfully treating chronic pain and other disorders with it.  I wasn’t going to be the first housewife to try it, nor would I be the last.

bio pill

BioCBD+ products are out of this world!

My Recommendation: This is an amazing CBD capsule.  Due to their water soluble formulation each 10mg capsule is the equivalent of 50mgs!  Because of its strength I was not able to use this product during the day.  Instead I found it to be the perfect way to prepare for bed.  Within an hour or two of taking one 10mg capsule my muscles would completely relax, my mind would clear, and my pain level decreased.  This made it  easier to fall asleep and helped me sleep deeper and longer, without feeling hungover the next morning. I was also able to decrease how much THC I take for pain. Because these capsules are so powerful, I find that I don’t need that high of a dosage every night. When used for multiple nights I would find myself feeling sluggish during the day. Since I experience a level of relief in my joints and muscles from this product for a day or two afterwards,  I prefer to use this product two or three times a week and substitute a lower dosage of another brand in between.
