5 Benefits of Taking Natural, Organic CBD Oil

Published

on

In recent years CBD (cannabidiol) oil has rapidly gained ground as a beneficial health aid, delivering many of the documented benefits of marijuana without the mind-altering high. This wonder product is made by mixing CBD (taken from hemp plants) with a carrier such as coconut oil, and for the best possible health benefits it’s best to choose an organic product. (This should be quite easy, as hemp grown in organic conditions will be clearly labelled as such.)

Let’s look at just five of the amazing benefits of taking natural, organic CBD oil regularly. If you’d like to read more about CBD Oil, then check out Secret Nature CBD.

Benefit #1 – Pain relief

This is perhaps one of the most well known and sought after benefits of CBD oil. Scientists claim the pain reduction is a result of the effect CBD has on the receptors in the brain which are responsible for triggering pain and inflammation. Many people with chronic, painful conditions such as arthritis rely on CBD oil for pain control with no side effects, rather than strong painkillers which were once their only option.

Benefit #2 – It can relieve the symptoms/frequency of seizures

Seizures, which are triggered by unusual electrical brain activity, can range in intensity from hardly noticeable to seriously life inhibiting; so the chance discovery that CBD oil can reduce the severity of these traumatic incidents is obviously very exciting and welcome.

Benefit #3 – CBD can help combat anxiety

Alongside the benefits CBD oil can have on physiological conditions there are a number of mental health conditions which are proving to be responsive too. One of the best known of these is anxiety, which affects a large number of people in its various guises.  Studies on those living with social anxiety disorders who have tried CBD oil report very positive results; with episodes dramatically reducing following regular consumption of this wonder product. Experts believe that CBD interacts with the brains limbic and paralimbic sections of the brain to achieve this positive result.

Benefit #4 – CBD oil can reduce the risk of developing diabetes, or the symptoms in those already diagnosed

Preliminary research studies on mice at high-risk of developing diabetes indicate that regular consumption of CBD oil vastly reduces this actually happening. However, most of the current research with human beings has been about how CBD oil helps to reduce the side effects those living with diabetes experience. These include reducing levels of diabetes-related foot pain, stabilizing effects on blood sugar, and less risk of eye damage.

Benefit #5 – This oil can help people beat depression

Depression is an all too common issue people face in modern life, and the effects can be extremely devastating on a day to day level. Typical medical treatments involve taking drugs for a long period of time, exposing users to a whole range of side effects, but the increasingly researched benefits of CBD oil as a way to combat depression are paving the way for a new, more natural approach.

The Ellen Hermanson Breast Center is designated as a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence by the American College of Radiology (ACR).  The Center offers a wide spectrum of breast health services, including education, early detection screenings and breast cancer treatment and support. The Center utilizes state-of-the-art diagnostic techniques, including computer-assisted mammography, ultrasound and a breast biopsy system that locates breast abnormalities and obtains tissue samples.

Breast cancer is a mind-numbing experience, not only for each patient, but for their families and friends. In a time of tremendous stress, Stony Brook Southampton Hospital’s Ellen Hermanson Breast Center offers a comprehensive patient-centric approach. Under the leadership of our fellowship-trained breast surgeon Dr. Edna Kapenhas, the Center includes Board-certified radiologists, pathologist, oncology nurse, radiology nurses, patient navigator, and certified technologists. Satellite diagnostic services are also located in East Hampton and Hampton Bays.

Did you know early breast cancer rarely has symptoms. Self-examination, an annual clinical examination and, depending on your age and family history, an annual mammogram are key to detecting breast cancer as early as possible. While most breast changes are not cancerous, it’s important to have them evaluated promptly. If you discover a lump or any of the other warning signs of breast cancer, especially if the changes persist after one menstrual cycle or they change the appearance of your breast, see your doctor immediately. If you’ve been treated for breast cancer in the past, report any new signs or symptoms right away. Symptoms may include:

  • A lump in the breast or a lump in the armpit that is hard and often does not hurt
  • Change in the size, shape, or feel of the breast or nipple (redness, dimpling, or puckering that looks like the skin of an orange)
  • Fluid coming from the nipple

In the event of a breast cancer diagnosis, and once definitive surgery has been completed, the patient may be referred to a medical and/or radiation oncologist for further treatment.

The Ellen Hermanson Foundation Auctions Off Jackets To Save Women’s Lives Part 2

Yesterday we told you about the Ellen Hermanson Foundation, annual Summer Gala to raise funds for women and breast cancer. Ellen Hermanson was an articulate, courageous and indomitable warrior in the war against breast cancer. Her personal battle with the disease began when she was diagnosed with breast cancer while still nursing her six-month-old daughter. Ellen fought against her disease medically by undergoing surgery and aggressive chemotherapy. She also fought against breast cancer by becoming an activist and advocate. A journalist by training, she used her prodigious talent as a writer to give voice to the needs of breast cancer survivors and to educate her readers about the importance of being well informed, the challenges of living with breast cancer, and the availability of resources to help with the myriad problems that arise as a result of breast cancer. Her remarkable accomplishments attest to her extraordinary inner strength and selfless generosity. Ellen lost her hard-fought battle with breast cancer at the age of 42. She was working on an article exploring the then new and exciting potential of the Internet as a source of information and sharing for patients and their families. Ellen left a legacy of dignity, courage, determination, grace and love to all who knew her. To honor her memory, The Ellen Hermanson Foundation has been established to support and continue the important work she began.

Julie Ratner along with her sister her sister Emily Levin co-founded The Ellen Hermanson Foundation in honor of their younger sister, Ellen. The foundation has distributed more than $4 million in grants. Julie is a member of the National Breast Cancer Coalition and the New York State Breast Cancer Network.
