Revisiting this beauty and getting back on track.
Most of what you see me post is about a healthy lifestyle, positive and uplifting quotes, and suggestions and tips on how you can heal yourself naturally through the power of foods, essential oils, personal development, and meditation.
What you don't see often are my struggles. And trust me, I have plenty of them. I am human just like you. I am nowhere near perfect, and there are some areas of my life that I really want to improve on. The only thing holding me back is myself. So I've decided that instead of turning on the TV at night, I'm going to dive back into these amazing books that @medicalmedium
has provided us, and make some amazing things happen! .
What is one thing that you struggle with that you'd really like to work on ?!
the past few days have been really hard. this life is built on constant failing and then reviving. it can seem daunting and discouraging and frustrating (and it is), but it’s also a sign of life. one that isn’t meant to be lived without Christ and his grace and help every moment of the day. a sign of teaching ourselves new things and learning and growing despite the challenges.
when i over pack my schedule and am running from place to place (on top of being a wife and mom) i get really overwhelmed. that type of life isn’t for me, one that is hurried and rushed. and my body knows it. i started feeling tense, tight chested and mildly panicky for a few days. those are my body’s sirens, but i didn’t stop and slow down. so that landed me in a night of terrible anxiety.
but this time, i sat in that space. i listened to worship music and prayed. i told God i was not leaving this place until i felt peace, i paced and prayed for over 4 hours. i felt like i was in a literal spiritual battle. i’d feel horribly anxious, then feel settled, then it’d ramp up again over and over. the enemy does not detach from us easily. he digs his claws in and fights til the end. but he still knows in the end God wins out.
despite ending the night a little more peaceful, i’ve still felt really anxious for days. that causes me to start questioning God, which creates my next pitfall to advance- rumination, overthinking, questioning. i start thinking i’m some pro at self analyzing. i waste entire days trying to figure out why i’m anxious, if i’m crazy, and despairing over everything. and this causes me to continue to feel worse. (satan loves this!) i wrote this list to remind myself next time what not to do, and what to do. battling against your mind takes SO much work. it’s draining and i’m weary. but i have to know God is not done here. a setback is just that, a setback. but it’s not an end. if you are in a place of despair, of wondering where God is, what the answer is, know this: He hears you. He is for you. trust him, praise him, keep going to him. there’s nothing more courageous than continuing to have hope and seeking God in the face of anguish. it won’t be this way forever, promise❤
While many patients are prescribed inorganic pharmaceutical drugs . Certain patients don’t see much improvement, or they can’t tolerate the side effects. Moreover, tranquilizers like Valium and Xanax can be highly addictive. Clearly, alternative treatments are warranted. Could cannabidiol (CBD), the most prominent non-intoxicating constituent in cannabis, provide a viable alternative for currently available anxiety medications? 👳🏼♂️🌱👳🏼♂️🌱👳🏼♂️🌱👳🏼♂️Quite possibly!💥👳🏼♂️💥👳🏼♂️💥👳🏼♂️
In recent years, CBD has generated a tremendous amount of interest among consumers, clinicians, and scientists. Why? Not only does evidence suggest CBD counteracts many of THC’s adverse effects, but numerous animal studies and accumulating evidence from human experimental, clinical, and epidemiological studies suggest CBD has powerful anti-anxiety properties. Administered acutely (“as needed”), it appears safe, well-tolerated, and may be beneficial to treat a number of anxiety-related disorders, including:
Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD)
Mild to moderate depression
