The Wheel of Life

I have an exercise for you to review your own Wheel of Life, based on my training in the Institute of Integrative Nutrition's concept of primary food. It turns out that the food on your plate, what I call secondary food, is not always the most important thing. Primary food overrides it, and includes a fulfilling career, nurturing relationships, an exercise routine you love, and an enriching spiritual practice. 

When you are filled up on primary food, regular food becomes secondary. 

When your primary food (nourishment) is imbalanced, many different physical and emotional symptoms appear. Some examples are anxiety, depression, eating disorders, weight gain or excessive loss, skin problems, and chronic fatigue.

For example, if your relationships are not fulfilling you, you might turn to food for that emotional satisfaction – a substitute for love.

If you’re not in a loving relationship, you might come home and binge on ice cream when what you really need is hugs and kisses. See where I’m going with this? 

If you’re unhappy in your job, you might start to experience anxiety on Sunday nights as you think about the week ahead, or you might snack all day at work to distract yourself and feed your boredom. 

If you don’t have a spiritual practice, you may start to feel very lost and ungrounded and look to other people to fill that void. For example, you may start engaging with a lot of people sexually to feel grounded and fulfilled, rather than looking inside yourself for that sense of peace and fulfillment. 

Exercise, another main area of primary food, can totally change your life. When you move your body regularly in a way that feels good to you, you greatly reduce the risk of depression, obesity, and stress disorders.

The Wheel of Life includes all the sub-areas of the main components of primary food, and it’s a great discovery tool to find out which areas are out of balance so you can take action to improve on them.

The first step here is becoming more mindful. Once you see your weak areas and strong areas, you can get honest with yourself about what needs to happen for you to create the life of your dreams, and then take action and get the support you need to get there. 

Remember that wherever you are in your life now is ok, but there’s never a bad time to make a change, and there’s always another level you can reach.

I have researched the scientific literature and know that my clients need easy access to quality CBD products. I see how this natural product can change people’s lives and decrease the impact of debilitating disease, help prevent cancer and help with its treatment, decrease dementia and seizures, control addictive disorders and diabetes, help reduce weight, and effectively decrease anxiety and depression.

 

I encourage my patients and clients to explore the benefits of CBD. There is no incentive for drug companies to advertise these products since there is no ‘mark-up’ big Pharma can attach to cannabinoids. The fact is, CBD is helping people naturally. My hope is that you not only experience the healing powers of cannabinoids but that you will join me on my mission to tell more people about it.  

 

What is CBD?

 

Cannabidiol is one of more than 80 beneficial components in cannabis. It has no THC and therefore it is not psychotropic and does NOT make you high. It is legal in all 50 states. It has proven to be a healthy alternative to medications for many conditions. It is considered a supplement and therefore cannot be advertised as a “treatment”.

 

Conditions that CBD may help

 

The British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology and many other researchers have found CBD has the following beneficial properties:

 

  • Antioxidant: combats oxidative stress.

  • Anti-inflammatory: decreases inflammation.

  • Anti-tumoral, Anti-cancer: combats tumor, cancer cell growth.

  • Anxiolytic, Antidepressant: combats anxiety and depression, and PTSD.

  • Antiemetic: reduces nausea and vomiting.

  • Anticonvulsant: suppresses seizure activity.

  • Antipsychotic: combats psychosis.

  • Anti-addictive: helps people decrease use of tobacco, alcohol, and narcotic pain medication

  • Neuroprotective: protects the brain and combats damage leading to dementia, Parkinson's disease and other neurologic conditions.

  • Diabetes/Weight Loss: suppresses appetite, changing white fat to ‘brown’ (metabolically active) fat, and decreasing insulin resistance.

 

Health Coaching is Entirely FREE using CBD from My Suppliers

 

If you sign up to use CBD products with either of my companies I will provide you with Health Coaching at a 50% reduction in cost. This is because I am convinced that CBD will increase your responsiveness to coaching.

Ordering CBD

However, you don't have to be registered with me to try our CBD Product. Just go to the website noted below. In addition, if you would like to join my team to spread the news about CBD just go to the bottom of the page and click on "Join My Team". I can advise you in the correct usage of this supplement.

One question everyone has is "how much is enough?". The fact is that we all produce our own cannabinoids. The CBD Oil allows your own chemical to enter your cells. Therefore, everyone is different! Our philosophy is to start low and go slow! Start with one or two drops a couple of times a day and see how you feel. I often encourage my patients to start with the 500mg sublingual drops. Progressively increase until you have the desired effect - we call this titrating your dose. Please contact me with questions.

I actually have two companies that I work with which have different kinds of products. This gives me, and my patients, flexibility in dosing.

 

One Medication Interaction Caveat!

If you are taking any medication that has a warning about 'grapefruit juice' you need to know that CBD products have a similar warning! Either check with me or you primary care provider to make sure it's safe for you to use CBD products.

 

Why Use?

Whenever you use online products you need to be cautious. A recent study in November 2017 noted that 70% of online CBD products are mislabeled by unscrupulous sellers! Always ensure that there is third party confirmation of what CBD product you are actually getting. This is what CBD from my distributors provides!
