Calms my IBS.
I had been on antidepressants for 15 years. This included Zanax, Lexapro, Zoloft, Celexa and anything else my Doctor recommended. They did work to help relieve my anxiety but the side effects were extreme: Chronic fatigue, weight gain of 50 pounds, disrupted sleep patterns and even problems with sexual arousal. I also had terrible brain fog. I spoke to my medical doctor and over a period of five months I was able to wean myself off of all of the meds. I still had serious brain fog and the anxiety was definitely there. As an example, when I would leave my office and drive down the five stories in the parking garage, I would experience nausea and vertigo.
After a nutritional counseling session with Julia Fuller in January of 2017, I started taking CBD oil's. I bought the Charlotte's Web Everyday Advanced and took two drops two times a day. Within two weeks I could tell it was working. I describe it as, "taking the top off my anxiety". This allowed me to then, be able to start some other modalities of healing like meditation, yoga and weightlifting. I got back to running again and actually finished my first marathon this spring. I have lost the 50 pounds that I gained, my brain fog is gone, I actually have muscle definition in my biceps again and I am much happier. I would recommend CBD oil's for anyone who is dealing with mild to severe depression.
I began taking CBD Oil for anxiety/depression. After two weeks of taking Charlotte's Web twice a day, I was able to notice a difference to the point I was able to make a list of all the things it was changing for me. Being able to make a list of changes was great in itself, but, CBD keeps giving me more and more. I had a small surgical procedure done from a brown recluse bite and was prescribed some pain killers. I chose not to take painkillers and used only CBD during my 5 dissections and initial surgery. I had zero pain during all of it. I can not speak highly enough about this product, it literally changed my life.
