Cannabidiol may dramatically improve digestive dysfunction and disease.
There are many factors that contribute to inflammatory bowel disease including foods, stress, sleep, and toxins. No matter the cause, the major cause of dysfunction and disease in the digestive tract is inflammation. Cancer, Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, leaky gut, and diverticulosis are all examples of gut ailments that are a result of inflammatory bowel disease. It has been shown that cannabidiol can help to eliminate intestinal disorders and dis-ease.
How Does CBD Help Eliminate Intestinal Disorders?
Cannabidiol (CBD) helps to control the inflammation process throughout the body and is particularly effective in the gut. Often, bleeding, cramping, diarrhea, and bloating improve and even resolve with low doses of CBD treatment within a week. These are the effects of low dose CBD on the gut:
Modulates the immune system
Relaxes the vasculature of the gut and increases blood flow
Reduces pain sensitivity
Relaxes smooth muscle and eliminates cramping
Restores the tight junctions in the gut eliminating leaky gut issues
Modulates of the micro biome, balancing gut flora
CBD oil sourced from industrial hemp is legal across the United States and in other countries when sold as a supplement. During my 2017 travels to Iceland and the Netherlands, the CBD in my baggage was never an issue at customs or security. However, carrying a product description from the manufacturer stating that the product does not contain THC could prove to be valuable information if questioned while traveling.
Hemp Oil Can Be Found In Everyday Products
Hemp oil is now available in foods, drinks, lotions, cleansing products, snacks, and even pet products. Elixinol products are organically grown, essentially free of THC (lower than .03% THC), petroleum free (hemp oil is CO2 extracted), checked by an independent third part lab, and contain whole plant extracts.

Massage is an Important Part of an Integrative Wellness Program
There are many reasons to book a healing massage today. Massage is often thought of as pampering, but the therapeutic benefits cannot be denied. Studies show that massage reduces pain, improves sleep, aids patients in getting through cancer treatments, increases motion and flexibility, helps to avoid colds and flus, often alleviates headache, and can ease the symptoms of depression and anxiety.
Stress Reduction with Healing Massage
Massage not only lowers your stress level, it reduces cortisol levels. Cortisol is hormone that can reek havoc on your body if you are constantly stressed. Elevated cortisol can lead to blood sugar issues, weight gain, suppression of the immune system, stomach and intestinal problems, and heart disease.
Massage Therapy for Pain Management
Recent studies indicate that massage is strongly indicated for pain management. More than eighty percent of doctor visits are for chronic and acute pain complaints. Massage is often an important part of an integrative pain management program.
How Does Massage Combat Illness?
It has been proven that regular massage boosts the immune system. Swedish massage studies have shown an increase in white blood cells that combat illnesses such as colds and flus. Studies have also indicate that massage can significantly increase natural killer cells that fight early stages of breast cancer.
Massage therapists that are properly licensed and trained can be relied on to develop a massage therapy plan to meet individual needs and can coordinate work with doctors, acupuncturists, and other health professionals. Many modalities are often combined to treat conditions and may include Swedish massage, deep tissue massage, neuromuscular therapy, structural integration, joint mobilization, and myofascial release.

The low level of near infrared light generated by a laser has been shown to stimulate and repair tissues.
Low level laser therapy (LLLT) is often applied to a wound or injury for short periods of time. When the light is applied at proper levels and amount of time, it can be quite effective for treating pain and inflammation, speeding healing, and even reversing some conditions. Often treatment last only a few minutes and is used multiple times.
You might ask, “How can light heal me?” Current research shows that the light. or phototherapy, stimulates certain processes in the cells that are touched by the laser. The mitochondria are the powerhouses of each cell. When the light stimulates the mitochondria, there will be an increase in respiration and more energy available to the cells.
LLLT has been widely tested in clinical trials and has been shown to be very effective for treating both acute and chronic conditions. The low level laser is effective for treating wounds, nerve issues, tendons, bones, and internal organs.
LLLT can be found in many clinical settings including physician and chiropractic offices, massage therapy centers, and acupuncture clinics. Cold lasers are being studied for their effectiveness in attacking viruses, reducing scars and burns, speeding wound healing, and much more. There are also laser devices designed to target and eliminate fat and others are used to treat and eliminate acne when an actual bacteria is responsible for the skin issue. Massage therapists incorporate this therapy into their practices to help eliminate inflammation and speed healing on multiple levels. Medical professionals and health practitioners are using these tools effectively in their practices.
