I was told by a private gastroenterologist I had a dropped large intestine and will be on laxatives for the rest of my life (now 36) they were making me fee horrible and not getting rid of the full compacted problem. I spoke to Michelle and she put everything into perspective and assured me that she can help. I had my first appointment last night and wow it was fantastic, I was extremely nervous but Michelle calmed me down. I can honestly say she has changed my life already, I don’t feel bloated, tired, grumpy or in any pain and that is the first appointment. Chucked the laxatives away and believe Michelle can train my bowels to behave and act normal. I cannot recommend Michelle enough. Thank you so much. 😊

Was in a bad way and was feeling really bad. I contacted Eternal Being and talked through my problems with Michelle, and made an appointment. I got immediate relief and over a few sessions got back to normal from really bad inflammation. Michelle was brilliant and gave me great advice and treatment. I would highly recommend getting a consultation if you have any issues. Thanks Michelle. Richard 👍🙂

Michelle is so tuned in to your body and knows what it needs. I have regular colonic treatments and feel fantastic. After having major ankle surgery late November 2023, I had a lymphatic massage to help my body recover. AMAZING!!! Thank you so much Michelle

Where do I start to tell you my journey with Michelle at Eternalbeing. TBH I hadn't heard of EB it only came about when I was talking to a gym buddy and we started talking about feeling bloaty, irregular bowel movement. So I thought as I have had problems since being a young girl around the age of 5 when I really struggled to go to the toilet so I was injected in the bottom to help me. So when I looked into the services that EB do I was so excited to think there was someone out there who may be able to help me. I made the call I was very nervous but after a telephone conversation which lasted about half an hour I booked in with her. Well, what an experience that was. Never thought in a million years my issues, fears quickly went away. My first clonic liver cleanse was a little bit surreal. How can I just be so relaxed and able to pooh after a few reassuring words from Michelle. We laugh all the time she still says after 10 years LOOK at your pooh train. I will be honest I did suffer from a headache afterwards but Michelle did warn me this would happen but soon subsided. Lots of water and not too much food after the treatment. I was taken suppliments to help me with my daily routine. Vitamin D3,
Bifido and Fibre,live cultures supplement for women, zinc citrate,
Alway I use her own patches
BIO MAGNETIC this to help my joints as I work out everyday
Sleep patch as I was struggling but ATM I'm sleeping very well.
Now about. Michelle my pooh fairy. This women is so passionate about her work to help others, always around of you need advise. She's my hero and best of all Michelle listens to you. Never rushes you, if these are going to plan with your treatment she ensures we rest and then try again.
Honestly, if you're not too sure about having a treatment I can assure you you would not be disappointed. I love her my pooh fairy

After years of stomach bloating, cramps and pain. Taking medication to relive the symptoms.
I visited Michelle for the first time in January. I have not looked back since. I have not had to take any medication since.
I really felt listened to and I am so pleased I picked the phone up and made that call.
I have more energy and my overall health has improved so much 😊

Great Treatment Michell. Thanks.

I've been going for years, Michelle always helpful and achieves great results everytine !

I had suffered with minor gut issues on and off for years but put it down to diet. Past 6 months noticed a gradual increase in feeling bloated, fatigued and no energy or motivation to exercise. I improved my diet with organic produce where possible and did the obvious but still felt full, bloated and sluggish. I had heard of colonics before but had no knowledge of what they did or why you would have one. After some googling, Eternal Being popped us a ‘colonics near me’ and so I checked out their website which prompted a consultation with Michelle and then a colonic hydrotherapy with liver cleanse. Consultation phase was thorough and the colonic was no where near as invasive as I thought it would be nor embarrassing. The feeling of relief was almost euphoric after feeling yuk for so long and the aftercare with Michelle’s knowledge gives me confidence the investment in myself was worth it! All puns intended, Michelle really knows her s#%t!

Great service as always from Michelle. I come about once a quarter and always look forward to the treatment as you know your interests and treatment best practice always come first every time.

Wish I had discovered Eternal Being sooner! Michelle is an absolute STAR - she understands what I need and is never short on advice. Her treatments are brilliant and her reassuring nature allows you to be at ease no matter what the treatment. I would not hesitate to recommend Michelle and Eternal Being to my contacts.

Michelle is amazing!

She's so supportive, passionate, friendly and welcoming in her advise/practice.

Before I went to Michelle all I ever thought about my my stomach issues. All I ever talked about was my stomach issues. The discomfort was daily and progressively getting worse. After over 2 years of issues and getting no where through the NHS, I reached out to Michelle and after meeting her for our consultation I finally felt confident that this wasn't going to be forever and that there was hope. For the first time in 2 years someone had told me that they can help me instead of saying 'ots JUST stomach issues, it's JUST iBS.

The tests Michelle did came back with detailed, personal results and Michelle's gave clean instructions on how we can fix my gut health together.

She's super friendly and makes you feel instantly at ease at any appointment.

Thankyou Michelle ☺️💩

Another excellent treatment from Michelle, I have a taken advice from Michelle and had regular colonic treatments over the last 12 years in relation to my gut problems and bloating. Can I stress it is not an uncomfortable treatment as she is highly qualified in her area of expertise.
Well worth a consultation and a treatment if you are suffering in agony with your gut problems. Michelle is extremely qualified in this area and has more extensive knowledge than many GP’s. Michelle will listen to your problem and will get to the bottom of your issues.
Thanks again Michelle look forward to the next treatment in March.

Since giving birth to my son in Oct 2022 I have suffered with anxiety and stress that has severely impacted my digestive system. I've been going to Michelle at Eternal Being because she helped me out many years ago with gut issues and I knew she would be able to help me out this time also. She's so incredibly knowledgeable about pretty much everything but especially gut and poop related issues. She's so professional but also makes you feel so at ease, she's brilliant at what she does and she's made me feel like my pre pregnancy self again. The treatment itself is actually very relaxing and I feel rejuvenated afterwards. Thank you so much Michelle aka the poop fairy! xxx

I first contacted Eternal Being and spoke with Michelle in July this year . I was really struggling both emotionally with grief and with my health, feeling generally unwell, bloated , lethargic and just not well 🤧 having felt like this for many years I had settled for the fact that this was how I was always going to feel .
After a bad fall through being so tired and lethargic at the start of July and suffering several injuries including a fractured wrist, I decided it was time to at least try to change the way I felt . Eternal Being was the very first place I read about and something told me that this was a good place , how right I was . Michelle called me following my email and I could tell straight away what a lovely person she was and clearly very passionate about what she does . I had my first appointment and found Michelle to be very friendly, warm, caring, very straight talking and honest with a terrific sense of humour 😊( very important ). I booked in for my first colonic and like many people I had preconceived ideas of what was involved It was nothing at all like I imagined, the treatment room ( like all of Eternal Being) was really lovely , comfortable, warm , very private a really calming peaceful place for a treatment . Michelle is extremely knowledgeable and every step was explained and done with care. We laughed a lot and talked a lot as well Michelle is a wonderful therapist and I came away from my first session feeling already better within myself and very positive about another treatment . I think it is so important to be open minded about this type of treatment, this isn’t a one size fits all situation and Michelle works out a treatment plan for each client individually depending on what they need. I have had a gut analysis done and Michelle has got a treatment plan for me going forward ,I have had several sessions and can honestly say I already feel so very different, I have a better understanding as well of how the gut is so closely linked to emotional well being something I definitely didn’t realise before seeing Michelle . This is a journey and not a quick fix but I am so glad I have started on it after many , many years of just accepting how I felt . I can’t imagine doing it anywhere else or with anyone else . So Michelle thank you so so much I I look forward to continuing this journey with you 😊👍🏼

I've been coming to Michelle for almost 2 years now and she honestly changed my life. She is so knowledgeable and genuinely cares about her clients and her work. I really can't recommend her enough, she's just the best!

How does CBD work?

There’s a lot of buzz about cannabidiol (CBD), and you might see it marketed as an add-in booster to your post-workout smoothie or morning coffee or even as the magic oil against severe headaches by your pharmacist.  But what exactly is CBD, and how does it work? Is it just a fad, or is there science behind it? Find out in this article.

What is CBD?

Cannabidiol, or CBD, is the second most prevalent active ingredient in cannabis. It alters mood by boosting serotonin levels in the brain, which calms the nervous system. Balanced serotonin levels increase happiness, calmness, focus, and emotional stability.

How is cannabidiol different from marijuana, cannabis, and hemp?

Cannabidiol has been used to treat insomnia, depression, and anxiety, but do you have to worry about getting into legal consequences for relying on marijuana’s cousin?

Marijuana and hemp plants contain both Cannabidiol and THC- delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol, which is the psychoactive compound in marijuana that makes people feel “high”. 

While CBD is derived from cannabis, it is different from marijuana in that it does not produce a “high” due to its low levels of THC. Hemp is a variety of cannabis that is grown for industrial use and contains minimal THC, making it a common source of CBD.

According to the World Health Organization and the Expert Committee on Drug Dependence, CBD exhibits no effects indicative of any abuse or dependence potential, and there is no evidence of public health-related problems associated. 

Due to this, CBD offers multiple benefits without the negative effects associated with THC, so you don’t need to worry about getting into legal trouble.

The health benefits of CBD

There’s been extensive research on how CBD works and its benefits.  The therapeutic benefits include helping with chronic pain, stress and anxiety and extend to improving symptoms of multiple sclerosis, chemotherapy-induced nausea and even childhood epilepsy syndromes that don’t respond well to antiseizure medications. 

Anxiety and CBD

There is scientific evidence to suggest that CBD can calm the nervous system, and alter our mood as it affects the serotonin system. A 2011 study on treating Generalised Social Anxiety Disorder showed that cannabis has anxiolytic effects both in humans and in animals. Another study by the Sleep Foundation revealed that about 80% of participants who used CBD reported lower anxiety levels within a month. 

Pain and CBD

The history of cannabis is indeed fascinating and long. Cannabis has been used for many purposes for centuries, including medicinal purposes, without formal approval.

The first recorded evidence can be found in the Shennong Ben Cao Jing encyclopaedia, which dates back to 2900 BC in China and recommended cannabis as a treatment for pain, constipation and malaria.  Combined with wine, the plant also provided an anaesthetic effect for patients undergoing surgery.

 CBD is still considered to be a great alternative to opioids for chronic pain because it is non-intoxicating.  CBD can effectively ease nerve pain and muscular symptoms and discomfort of multiple sclerosis, inflammatory pain, osteoarthritis and many others.

Insomnia and CBD

Insomnia is a stress reaction that spills into rest time when we aren’t trying to process conscious trauma. Research by the Sleep Foundation has shown that more than 65% of participants reported improving sleep at first, followed by fluctuating results. Stress hormone overactivation can be suppressed through CBD and the sleep-wake cycle will be equalised through counteracting hormones.

Is CBD safe?

CBD is safe to use and not addictive. It’s important to keep your healthcare provider informed whenever you use CBD, as it may interact with your existing medications, especially if you are taking blood thinners.

How can I take CBD?

CBD products come in a variety of forms. So, how do you know which CBD product is right for you?

CBD oil

Among the most common and popular delivery methods for CBD are oils. Proponents of CBD oil can be used to treat conditions such as chronic pain, inflammation, migraines, epilepsy, and depression. Try the eternalbeing CBD oil that contains an intermediate milligram amount of hemp extract that is ideal for everyday use.

CBD cooling balms

A CBD cooling balm can offer relief for aching muscles, shoulders or necks; it can also be used for back pain or general muscle discomfort. After application, it gives the skin a refreshing, restorative, radiant sensation. Moreover, CBD has anti-inflammatory properties that help reduce swelling. Our Cooling Power Balm creates a cold-like sensation upon application, this will, in turn, assist in the relief of discomfort throughout the area affected.

CBD oil heating balms 

For targeted relief CBD oil heating balms work great for easing sore, stiff muscles. Our Arnica balm formulation is a must-have for anyone who trains and works out and helps with aches and bruising. You can also pair it with our Cooling Power Balm for maximum pain relief and comfort. The heating balm helps to warm up the muscles, while the cooling balm helps to reduce inflammation and swelling. 

The balms are also great to use before and after physical activity to help with muscle recovery. They are easy to apply and absorb quickly, leaving no greasy residue.

CBD capsules 

Natural and tasteless CBD capsules without any artificial additives or hemp aftertaste. The eternalbeing capsules are precision calibrated for accurate dosing and verified to contain no THC. With full-spectrum oils, CBD softgels contain all the turpentine and are as pure as possible. 

CBD gummies

Gummies offer a  tasty and convenient option for daily CBD intake.. The small and discreet sizes make them ideal for discreet use, and many come in fruity flavours to mask the CBD’s taste. This is why they are quickly catching up to CBD oil in terms of use and popularity. Our CBD gummies are effective at relieving anxiety, depression, pain, and inflammation, and improving sleep.  By counting the gummies, you will be able to determine the proper dosage.

CBD patches

CBD patches deliver cannabidiol to the body through the skin. Over several hours, they provide a slow and steady release of CBD, which can treat symptoms like pain, inflammation, anxiety, and insomnia.

Our CBD 50mg patches contain all natural CBD and are designed to reduce inflammation and joint/muscle pain, as well as reduce anxiety. You can also opt for our CBD blend patch with Tumeric, Omega 6, Omega-3, Omega-9, Resveratrol and  Menthol provide the body with the nutrients it needs for improved pain relief and no drowsy effect, reducing inflammation and joint/muscle pain, as well as reducing anxiety.

Unable to stay soundly asleep for long periods? With a blend of specially selected herbal extracts and CBD, these convenient Sleep Patches are designed to support a good night’s sleep using a variety of natural ingredients. Goodbye, restless nights! Peel, stick, and go! No more swallowing pills!

In addition, the product may contain other unknown elements. If you buy CBD, it is safest to make sure that there is independent laboratory testing as attested to by a COA (certificate of analysis) that should accompany every CBD product.

Can CBD help you?

If you are interested in using CBD, talk with your healthcare provider first about whether it’s a good idea and how to safely obtain it. Always take CBD from a reputable provider, and start with a small dose to see how it affects you.

Eat Well to Feel Well: 3 tips on supporting your general and mental health 

As we all should know by now, eating well has so many benefits! It will lift our moods as well as our body health, keeping things like our digestive system on a positive track! However, there are so many other things that can also help your overall health and well-being. This blog will cover tips that Joy McCarthy, a Certified Holistic Nutritionist, has recently spoken about, to benefit your overall health. 

Joy McCarthy is the founder of Joyous Health, a Certified Holistic Nutritionist, and a best-selling author. Joy has recently spoken about how “sleep, stress, and sex impacts your overall health and wellbeing”. Within her weekly classes, she sets tasks to help the attendees with their general health. 

The tasks were:

Sleep

Get to bed before 11 pm 3 times next week. See if you feel the benefits straight away. Studies have shown that even going to bed 15 minutes before your usual time will have a massive impact on your health, well-being, and even your appetite-controlling hormones.

Electronics

Try to avoid watching TV or being on your computer for 1.5 hours before going to bed. Why not try other activities like reading, meditating, or even listening to music to try to calm yourself before going to sleep? 

Many electronics give off a blue light that suppresses the body from releasing the natural hormone, melatonin. Melatonin helps you keep a regular sleep pattern, encouraging sleep. Therefore trying to avoid these lights would benefit your sleep quality. 

Food Diary

By keeping a food diary you’ll be able to track what food you’re consuming, allowing you to make necessary changes if needed. Even including an extra portion of fruit and veg could benefit your well-being extensively. 

If these tips worked for you, drop a comment below on how they made you feel and if you will continue with them.

6 Food and Drinks That Help with Bloating

We all can feel a little bloated, but some of us more than others. Bloating can cause issues such as constipation, excess gas, and discomfort. If you are one of the unlucky people that does experience bloating, try to exercise regularly, drink plenty of water, reduce your intake of fizzy drinks, alcohol, and caffeine, and try to keep away from foods you’re intolerant to.

This may sound like a lot, and if you don’t want to skip your daily caffeine kick, there are other ways to reduce bloating. Within this blog, 6 foods and drinks will be mentioned that could potentially help with your bloating symptoms. Read on to find out what they are.

Avocados are rich in vitamins, potassium, and fibre, which will help your digestion, supporting regularity and preventing constipation.

Berries, in particular strawberries, blueberries and blackberries are full of antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals and are also high in fibre. Similarly to avocados, berries support the function and regularity of your digestive system. 

Green tea can be an acquired taste, yet it holds so many positive values. Green tea is known to be a natural laxative, stimulating movement within your digestive tract and regularity. Therefore, reducing bloating.

If you’re not keen on green tea, why not try a similar drink like Kombucha?

Kombucha may not be as common as green tea, but it still has some great benefits. Kombucha is a fermented drink, usually made from black or green tea. This tea can help you squeeze in some much-needed antioxidants into your diet to help beat bloating. 

This drink is rich in probiotics and can promote gut health and digestive regularity. 

Papaya, something that might not be on your daily meal plan, contains an important enzyme called papain. This enzyme helps break down amino acids, encouraging healthy digestion and helping keep bloating at bay.

Turmeric, something that is used in curries and soups, has a compound called curcumin. Through studies, this compound has been found to have anti-inflammatory values, improve gut health and reduce symptoms of IBS.

These are only 6 products that can only help with bloating. But some other key things are to remember to eat slowly with your mouth closed, reducing the ingestion of air; drink plenty of water; reduce your intake of fizzy drinks; alcohol, and caffeine.

How Your Gut Can Heal Your Brain

Ever heard the expression, “you are what you eat”? Well, while many of us know that our mental health can be directly affected by our diet, most people aren’t aware that it is actually the bacteria inside us that causes the food to affect the way we feel. With this in mind, we want to look at how your gut can heal your brain in this blog.

​​How your gut health could be connected to your anxiety

According to Harvard Health, “a troubled intestine can send signals to your brain, just as a troubled brain can send signals to the gut”. This means that a person’s gut problems could potentially be the cause of any anxiety or stress that they are experiencing. Ever felt a whirling feeling in your stomach before an important meeting or presentation? Well, then you’ll know exactly what we’re talking about. 

Given how closely the gut and brain interact, it isn’t hard to understand why you may feel intestinal discomfort during times of stress. Despite this, we shouldn’t assume that gastrointestinal conditions are imagined. In reality, stress or anxiety can actually affect movement and contractions of the gastrointestinal.

Stress-Related Gut Symptoms and Conditions

When you’re nervous or anxious, for example before that big meeting, your body releases hormones and chemicals that enter the digestive system. It’s these hormones and chemicals that affect the microorganisms living along your gut. The microorganisms help with the digestion process while decreasing antibody production, so this can result in a chemical imbalance which can cause several gastrointestinal conditions. Some of which include: 

  • Indigestion 
  • Stomach upset and diarrhoea
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
  • Constipation
  • Nausea

Food for thought

One of the ways that you can improve your mental health is to know which types of foods improve your gut health.

As we so eloquently said earlier “you are what you eat” and so here are some examples of foods that help both your gut and your mental health. 

Fibre

Did you know that eating fibre can improve your memory and your overall mood? In addition to this, fibre can also decrease inflammation and oxidative stress by supporting microbiota. 

Vitamin D

We all feel better after a few hours in the sun, so it should come as no surprise to you that getting more vitamin D in your diet can improve your mental health. Vitamin D is great for regulating your microbiome and reducing gastrointestinal inflammation.

Protein

Protein can help to limit the number of bad bacteria in a microbiome. This is because proteins contain nitrogen. In turn, eating protein can help to decrease feelings of depression because of the production of serotonin and we all know that serotonin is a huge mood booster. 

If you would like to learn more about the connection between the gut and the brain, you can read our ‘How Gut Bacteria Leads to Depression and Anxiety’ blog. Alternatively, you can browse our other blogs here. 

Everything You Need to Know About CBD as an Athlete

As an athlete you may have stumbled across the letters CBD but, while you may have seen it, you may not know how you and your career could benefit from it.

You may be wondering what the side effects are, how you use it, and how much you should use. This is why, in this blog, we will discuss everything you need to know about CBD as an athlete. 

What is CBD?

Immediately, you may begin to worry that CBD comes from cannabis but CBD, or Cannabidiol, is only one of more than 100 chemical compounds, called cannabinoids, that are found in the cannabis plant, Cannabis Sativa (Healthline, 2021). It is commonly used for various common ailments including pain relief and inflammation and has many of the same potential benefits as THC, without the psychoactive effects.

Different forms of CBD

CBD can be overwhelming when you first look into it. From full-spectrum, broad-spectrum, and isolate to gummies, oils and topical treatments, CBD is a versatile substance and has a wide range of potential uses. 

According to Medical Daily, the 4 most popular forms of CBD are:

  • CBD Oil – the most popular form of CBD which may also be referred to as CBD tincture
  • CBD Gummies – edible sweets infused with CBD
  • CBD Capsules – CBD in pill form, most commonly a gel-capsule infused with CBD.
  • CBD Topicals – typically come in the form of creams, lotions, and salves.

Health Benefits

Pain relief

According to ‘Cannabis and Pain: A Clinical Review’, Cannabis has been used to treat pain since as far back as 2900 B.C. However, recently, scientists have discovered that it is the CBD found in Cannabis that is responsible for its pain-relieving effects. 

A study found on PubMed, discovered that CBD may be especially effective for nerve pain and back pain when used on its own which may be essential for athletes.

Healthy Hearts

The use of CBD had been linked with several heart and circulatory system benefits, including the ability to lower high blood pressure and cholesterol and maintain a healthy weight. 

Although CBD is not a cure for heart failure, there is evidence to suggest that it may prevent further damage and reduce the risk of heart failure as a result of its anti-inflammatory properties (Very Well health, 2021). 

Insomnia 

According to Sleep Foundation, there is also preliminary research that suggests CBD can help with a number of sleep disorders, including insomnia, REM sleep behaviour disorder, and excessive daytime sleepiness disorder. So if you have been suffering due to sleepless nights, it may be worth you trying out some CBD products.

Possible Side Effects

As with most things, while there are numerous health benefits to using CBD, there may also be possible side effects. Although they may be mild, we believe that it’s best to know some of the side effects of CBD and weigh up how they may affect your career before you consider using it. 

Some side effects of using CBD include:

  • Dry Mouth 
  • Reduced appetite
  • Fatigue 
  • diarrhea
  • changes in weight

Unfortunately, there are still a lot of uncertainties about CBD and how it affects athletes, however, one major benefit for athletes is its effectiveness for pain relief.

7 Benefits of CBD Oil

CBD is a chemical compound found in the cannabis Sativa plant. CBD is often pulled from the cannabis Sativa plant in oil form and mixed with an inert carrier oil like hemp seed oil so it is fit for consumption. Recently, CBD oil has become increasingly popular due to its purported calming effects. CBD oil can now be found in a range of products from simple oil tinctures to surprisingly CBD-infused potato crisps.

Research into CBD is also growing. Here are seven ways CBD oil could benefit your health according to recent studies:

  1. Anxiety and Depression

CBD’s impressive ability to calm is perhaps its most popular effect and the reason its use is so popular and widespread. According to the Brazilian Journal of Psychiatry 2017 study, CBD helped to significantly reduce the anxiety of male participants during a simulated public speaking test. 

Furthermore, at least one study in mice revealed CBD had effects similar to the antidepressant, imipramine. However, Human trials are required to confirm whether CBD can help induce this same antidepressant reaction in our bodies.

  1. CBD can treat select epilepsy syndromes

In some cases, CBD oil can be used to treat epileptic seizures.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved the use of CBD under the brand name Epidiolex in 2018. This was to treat seizures as a result of two rare forms of epilepsy (Lennox-Gastaut syndrome and Dravet syndrome) in patients as young as 2 years old.

Over three studies, 516 patients suffering from Lennox-Gastaut syndrome or Dravet syndrome received either Epidiolex or a placebo. When taken along with other prescribed medications Epidiolex decreased the commonness of participants’ attacks compared to the placebo.

  1. Reduce PTSD Symptoms

In a small study by the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine in 2018, 11 people suffering from PTSD received CBD oil along with routine psychiatric care for a duration of eight weeks. 10 out of the 11 individuals experienced a decrease in their Post Traumatic Stress Disorder symptoms. Doctors such as Margaret Rajnic have emphasised the importance of using therapy alongside any type of cannabis or CBD when treating PTSD. 

  1. CBD oil can treat opioid addiction

Some studies suggest CBD oil could be helpful in treating people who are addicted to opioids. Researchers gave CBD to individuals with heroin use disorder and they saw results over the course of a week. The CBD significantly reduced users’ cue-induced cravings, withdrawal anxiety, resting heart rate and salivary cortisol levels. Plus, no serious adverse effects were found.

  1. CBD can alleviate ALS symptoms

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) causes nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord to deteriorate meaning there is a loss of muscle control that worsens over time. No one knows for certain exactly why ALS occurs, but it can be hereditary. There is also no known cure, with only two FDA-approved medications used to help treat ALS symptoms.

People with ALS can benefit from the combination of THC and CBD, similar to people suffering from PTSD. In a study from 2019, individuals took a combination of THC and CBD in varying doses depending on their preferences. Those with mild, average or extreme muscle tightness and stiffness due to ALS reported great feedback from the treatment. 

  1. Protects against neurological disease

Preclinical and clinical studies indicate that CBD oil has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. These characteristics can provide significant neuroprotection or protection against numerous pathological disorders.

Several preclinical studies suggest CBD oil could help those suffering from Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease and multiple sclerosis. However, further clinical studies are required to confirm CBD’s benefits when used as a treatment for these disorders.

  1. Deter Arthritis symptoms 

Arthritis is the process of deterioration of the tissues in and around your joints. There are several types of arthritis, and symptoms can include pain, stiffness and loss of motion.

A 2006 study found that CBD oil (specifically ‘Sativex’, a CBD-based botanical drug approved in the United Kingdom) facilitated significant improvements in sleep quality, movement pain and pain at rest in patients with rheumatoid arthritis when compared to a placebo.

In a 2018 study, researchers found the results were interesting, but not conclusive. Those treated with CBD didn’t experience much change in pain when compared with placebo patients. However, there were statistically significant differences between a group receiving the 250-milligram dose and a placebo group when measuring the average weekly improvement of their worst pain levels and their WOMAC (Western Ontario and McMaster Universities Arthritis Index) physical function rating.

As you can tell, there are many benefits of using CBD Oil. Visit the Eternalbeing website today or pop into the clinic to get your hands on your very own CBD oil and see the benefits for yourself!
