Fibromyalgia and Foot Pain

Feet are one of the most sensitive parts of the body. The soles have more nerves per square centimeter than any other part of the body. This makes your feet the perfect set up to feel pain and add a Chronic Pain condition on top of this and you are in for some deeply felt agony. Somewhere around 80% of those who suffer from fibromyalgia are women. The reality of fibromyalgia is difficult and frustrating! There have not to date been any research results to a definitive cause, but my personal opinion is that it’s an auto-immune disorder that inflames nerve endings and causes constant pain. Foot pain from fibromyalgia can make all your pain more intense. Trying to favor or ease up on your feet can throw out your knees, hips, and back. We as sufferers of Fibromyalgia are often told to be active, but that can be an impossibly when your feet hurt, this creates a vicious cycle of avoiding exercise that would improving your condition, but your feet don’t improve, which keeps you from doing any physical activity, and so on.

So what can you do to help with the pain in your feet if you suffer from fibromyalgia?

When our bodies decide to slow our metabolism it’s all about one thing and one thing only; the will to survive! It’s not that our body is trying to conspire against us to ruin our life.

Rick Simpson Oil; Who is Rick Simpson? Does his Oil cure Cancer?

Who is Rick Simpson?
This is the first thing I thought when a massage therapist ask me if I knew about the healing power of Rick Simpson Oil. So I sat out to do some research and get the answers. This is what I learned..In 1997 Rick Simpson was working in a Canadian hospital, in the boiler room covering dangerous asbestos on the hospital pipes with a toxic aerosol glue. Do you see the elements for developing cancer waiting to happen? I do! The near term effects of working in this environment was temporary shock to the nervous system. Simpson apparent passed out and fell from a ladder, when he regained consciousness he contacted his coworkers who took him to the emergency room. He continued to have dizziness and ringing in his ears, with little help from the pharmaceuticals he was given. After watching a documentary on the positive benefits of cannabis, he spoke with his doctor who refused to even consider it. So he sought out cannabis to treat himself. After he saw significant improvements on his symptoms he noticed some spots on his arm. After consulting with his doctor, it was confirmed to be skin cancer. After seeing a study on cannabis treatment for cancer in mice, he decided it had worked before, so he treated his skin cancer with topical cannabis. It healed his skin cancer and he decided to start growing his own cannabis and making it into his own specialized form of cannabis concentrate, now known as Rick Simpson Oil (RSO).

THC and CBD What is the difference?

Both THC and CBD are cannabinoids that coexist in the Cannabis plant, however they are very different and their effects on the brain and body are as well. The biggest difference in the two is THC is psychoactive and CBD is not. Simply put THC will get you high, CBD will not. They both work in the body’s endocannabinoid system, what the heck does that mean? I didn’t even know my body had a endocannabinoid system? Well, basically it’s a group of receptors in the brain and throughout the nervous system. It’s known as the body’s own cannabinoid system and is involved in a variety of processes including appetite, pain-sensation, mood, and memory, and in resolving the psychoactive effects of cannabis. THC mainly causes reactions in the nervous system and CBD primarily interacts with the immune system. Because the two compounds work on different receptors in the brain and nervous system they produce different symptoms in the body.
