Modern Health

Cannabis Oil Has Become a Popular Choice

Cannabis Oil

Cannabis oil has become a popular choice of alternative medication. It has been covered by numerous scientific studies and free will experimentation to potentially be an effective modern treatment choice for a variety of health related issues.

Ingredients are extracted from the budding leaves of the female marijuana plant to create a cannabis oil. The known concerns seem to be based on the possibility of temporary cognitive impairment and the implications of long term effects.

According to the warnings provided by the pharmacy along with your medication, which is required by law, these concerns should be geared with the same fervor toward any medicine prescribed.

Choosing which medicine is the best for your condition is a difficult task. There are always pro’s and cons to weigh up. It seems that almost every pharmaceutical development has side effects equal to or surpassing its potential to heal or provide treatment for the diagnosis it was manufactured for.

The media attacks FDA approved prescription medication everyday with testimonials, fatalities, studies and statistics supporting their claim.

Physicians continue to prescribe these medications in spite of the negative attention. They adamantly stand behind the positive intentions of the drugs they prescribe. To be fair, there are scientific facts supporting their stance.

There are also facts supporting the positive healing results of cannabis oil in reports compiled by physicians dedicated to regulate the use of the treatment.

Crohn’s disease is an IBD, which stands for inflammatory bowel disease. Cannabis oil has been proven to reduce the inflammation in the lining of the digestive tract. This results in decreasing the severe abdominal pain that many Crohn’s patients experience.

What is Kratom & Is It Safe To Use?

kratom-treeWhat is kratom?

Kratom is the common word for Mitragyna Speciosa, a species of tree related to the coffee plant, which grows in marshy regions of Southeast Asia, most famously Thailand. Traditionally, the leaves are chewed in raw form to receive the psychoactive effects of the plant. However, nowadays it also comes in different forms, including extracts and powders. This helpful plant is not detected by drug tests, making it a versatile and realistic option for many users.

What are the effects of kratom?

Kratom has chemical properties similar to morphine, although the effects on the user are much different than that of opioids, and the risk of dependency is nowhere near as high. Kratom acts as a stimulant in low doses, and as a sedative in high doses. Everyone who uses kratom has different motives for using it, as it has a wide variety of effects, including:

  • An uplifted mood.
  • Pain relief.
  • Alertness.
  • Increased energy.
  • Improved male sexual performance.
  • Relaxation.
  • Suppressed appetite.
  • Who uses kratom?

You could use kratom to your advantage if you…

  • …want a natural way to manage chronic pain.
  • …want an alternative source of extra energy.
  • …could use a mood boost.
  • …need to manage opioid withdrawal symptoms.
  • …want to improve your sexual performance.
  • …are trying to lose weight.
  • …are simply looking for a new recreational drug to try.

Using kratom responsibly:

Although kratom has positive effects on the body and mood and it is legal to buy kratom in the United States, that doesn’t mean that you should just use unlimited kratom with no regard to the consequences. Kratom contains over 40 compounds that effect the body, and little scientific research has been done about this plant. As with any drug, you should be aware of the side effects and risks associated with the use of kratom. Negative side effects caused by kratom are rare, but possible, and include:

  • Nausea and vomiting.
  • Hallucinations and confusion.
  • Sweating.
  • Dizziness.
  • Constipation.
  • Chest pain.

If you’re new to kratom, try using a low dose to start with and seeing how it affects you before moving up to larger doses. If you start to habitually use kratom, be aware that kratom can form a mild dependence, and if you stop using it you will probably experience withdrawal similar to caffeine withdrawal. Effects of kratom withdrawal include irritability, runny nose, and diarrhea. Furthermore, kratom is not legal in every country, so use it responsibly. Although it is not a federally controlled substance in the United States, be aware that state laws may vary. So, in light of the evidence that Kratom can provide immeasurable health benefits to those who take it, why do state and federal legislators and regulators continue to try banning the substance nationwide? Even the Huffington Post thinks that the industry is being overzealously targeted.

Give Yourself A Nootropic NeuroBoost!

nootropicNootropics are nutritional supplements that enhance cognition and intellectual capability. These are not classic pharmaceuticals, like brain stimulants. Instead, nootropics are thought to improve mind function without the side effects commonly associated with brain-regulating psychotropics or antidepressants. Nootropics can be taken long-term without negative side effects.

You have possibly taken nootropics and not been aware of it. Fish oil, grape seed extract and licorice are all nootropics. This is because these supplements enhance blood flow to the brain, which supports superior cognition.

Can I enhance my IQ by taking a supplement? The process is a little more complex than raising IQ in a day. Nootropics, like all natural supplementation, build upon themselves over time. These ‘smart drugs’ raise brain function by increasing the production of neurotransmitters, rather like installing more memory on a computer. Just like a computer with more capacity, the mind on nootropics now has the ability for better concentration, more processing ability and longer attention span. As an added bonus, an experience of mood elevation occurs. This experience is understandable, because we know that reduced brain function is often linked to depression.

Some nootropics enhance vasodilation. These, as mentioned, increase blood flow to the brain, which makes for important processing improvements. Increased blood flow means more nutrients and oxygen, as well as glucose supply. The brain’s fuel is glucose. With continual use, there is the possibility of permanently establishing better blood and oxygen flow, as well as an extra boost from neurotransmitters.

What about nootropic effects on aging brains? Young people have pliable brains that form new connections very easily. Older people have years of knowledge that they can build upon, but the plasticity is no longer available. In fact, as we age, certain connections that the mind deems no longer needed are actually pruned away.
For instance, you forgot the name of your fourth grade teacher! But fourth grade was 40 years ago, and somewhere it was determined that, without a use for that memory, it should be scuttled.

Many nootropics work on glutamate and acetylcholine receptors in the brain. This enhances synaptic plasticity. Nerve Growth Factor can be enhanced as well. This is a protein in the brain that controls the development of new neurites and neurons. New memory pathways are formed during this development.

But what about impaired cognition in the elderly, like Alzheimer’s?
Some nootropics may be able to reduce or prevent this devastating sign of aging by removing lipofucsin, a lipid-containing residue occurring in the aging brain. New neurons and connections are formed, increasing cell membrane permeability and supplying the brain with better nutrients.
There is a significant potential for long-term benefit to the elderly through nootropics.

The brain, like all organs of the body, needs optimum nutrition to perform at its best. Nootropics could be the answer!

Illness and the Internet: Browser beware!

illnessThe Internet has given each of us great power, and as we all know from watching the Spider-Man movies, with great power comes great responsibility.

I remember the day my youngest daughter became aware of the sweeping power of web search engines to help her find answers to pretty much any question she might have. “Dad,” she told me, her eyes wide open in wonder, “Google is like God.”

It may seem that way at times, because there’s a ton of information out there in cyberspace. But armed with the power to search, we also have the responsibility to make sure the information we’re receiving – and often then pass along to others – comes from a credible source.

A perfect example is when we’re looking for information about a medical condition.

There are more websites offering medical advice than you can shake a thermometer at, and not all of that information is reliable, to put it kindly. And we tend to go with the worst scenario possible out of all that information-gathering, and that can be a scary thing.

We Google “stiff neck” and become convinced we have spinal meningitis. We Bing “sore elbow” and are sure we’re having a heart attack. And don’t even ask about searching for “constipation” causes – some of the results are downright terrifying.

So what are some guidelines for obtaining accurate information on the Internet? We’ve gathered a few:
