Getting Through the Change with a Little Help From Your New Best Friend

By on October 31, 2019

Someday, usually between the ages of 45-60, our bodies start to change and playing tricks on us. In theory, we’ve always known that chronic fatigue, trouble sleeping, mood swings, depression, hot flashes, and random pain were lurking out there somewhere, but when they gradually creep upon us, we can be caught unprepared, can’t we?

Unfortunately, many health care providers aren’t adequately prepared to help us deal with these evil horsemen of the menopause. Different forms of hormone replacement therapy may provide relief, but they take time to kick in, may have some undesirable side effects, and seldom keep all the adverse symptoms at bay 100 percent of the time.

When you’re inordinately exhausted but still have hours of work to do, when you feel like either breaking into tears or laying into your best friend for no good reason, or when you’re tossing and turning in bed with pain and anxiety keeping you from getting the blissful sleep you need, there is an excellent alternative to simply suffering through it.

One for All

ChangeIt’s a delightful little cannabinoid called CBD, something your own body already produces naturally — it’s there to help manage pain and anxiety. Add an extra helping of it, via drops of a tincture, gummies or topical cream, and you may find blessed relief in a matter of minutes.

One of the most important things to remember about CBD products that come from a reputable source, is that they will not get you high. That’s because they’re derived from the industrial hemp plant, not the marijuana plant, and do not contain THC, the psychoactive chemical found in pot.

Dr. Bridget Briggs, a specialist in integrative family medicine, explains some of CBD’s many positive qualities this way: “We all know what it feels like when our bodies are changing, and pain is a part of our everyday lives. CBD is beneficial in modulating the number of pain molecules that are produced, without having drug/drug interactions with other medicines that we may be taking to control blood pressure or blood sugar.”

How CBD Can Help

“I use some type of CBD almost every day,” says Julie Franklin, a Southern Californian in her mid-50’s. “I take a gummy when I need to relax, focus and clear out the cobwebs. I take Revive tincture when I need a little boost of energy, and for me, it also works as an appetite suppressant. The Relief and Calm Sleep tinctures help calm my pain and anxiety so I can settle down and sleep at night, and a dab of topical cream takes away my aches and pains.”

But before you run out to your nearest drugstore and grab the first CBD bottles that you see on the shelf, know that not all CBD products are created equal, and you need to do your homework on what you’re buying.

Dr. Briggs cautions that when shopping for CBD, you’ll want to see how much CBD is contained in the product. BioFit 360 gummies, for example, contain 30 mg of CBD in each one. Other, less expensive brands may contain 3 mg of CBD or less, so you’d have to take ten to get the same effect.Change

You’ll also want to read about the ingredients in the CBD products you’re considering. Companies like BioFit 360 are crystal clear about the fact that the industrial hemp from which they derive their CBD is grown in the U.S., where standards and regulations are much higher than in China and other countries. BioFit 360 also adds helpful ingredients like MCT and Vitamin E oil, Curcumin, Frankincense, monk fruit, lavender and more, specifically designed by medical professionals to give you the best results.
