CBD oil helps kids suffering from ADHD/ADD

It’s more common in boys than in girls. It’s usually discovered during the early school years, when a child begins to have problems paying attention.

Adults with ADHD may have trouble managing time, being organized, setting goals, and holding down a job. They may also have problems with relationships, self-esteem, and addiction.

ADHD-Medications

Patients suffering from ADD have been observed to have low dopamine levels in their prefrontal cortex of their brains. Dopamine is an organic chemical responsible for thought processes such as memory and attention. Dopamine transmits signals between the neurons/nerve cells in the brain which is controlled partially by compounds found in the endocannabinoid system.

It can be very difficult to parents with ADHD/ADD children to manage a daily routine and find the right support. Some parents searched for a natural product instead of putting their children on medication and found great results with CBD oil. Prescriptions side effects are lack of appetite, nausea, vomiting, problems with the circulatory system, stunted growth and even hallucinations, inability to sleep and sometimes, appearance of being “drugged”. Certain compounds in the CBD oil have been shown to have the same effects as prescribed drugs, but without the side effects.
CBD activates anti-anxiety, anti-depressant and anti-inflammatory receptors to manage the symptoms of patients suffering with ADD.

Many research have confirmed that most of the subjects showed signs of improvement especially in terms of sleep, concentration and reduction in hyperactivity and impulsivity. CBD allows people with ADD to work and live without any significant side-effects.

ONE POWERFUL TESTIMONIAL, TO SEE MORE GO HERE

We are coming up on week 7 of our CBD oil journey with this guy. I figure it’s time for an update. A little back history for those that don’t know his story. Bryson has severe Mood Issues with some pretty violent and aggressive behaviors. He has been on a variety of different medicines for it since he was 4 years old. He will be 8 later this month. He had horrible side effects from those meds. He didn’t sleep, eat, drink, play, or have a personality. He was a true zombie. He was quiet and did what he was told while the meds were in his system. As soon as they were wearing off he had a come down just like a meth addict. He was angry, mean, destructive, and just hateful. He told me several times a day he didn’t want to be alive. When that started I knew I had to make a choice. I had already been researching other options because of the other side effects, but that was my deciding push. We started on CBD oil and our lives changed. After a week he was no longer angry. He was eating, drinking, playing, sleeping, and his personality was back. He laughs and sings again. We had a rough couple of weeks at school while he was going through the detox that can happen, it just means the oil is working and getting rid of all the toxins and crap in your body. Most detox for a couple days, but Bryson is unique lol. We are now getting good reports at school and working together to be even better. I couldn’t be happier with our decision, and most importantly neither could he!

FACTS ABOUT CBD FROM HEMP

3 Useful Facts about CBD from Hemp:

1. CBD products made from hemp contain very low levels of THC
One of the concerns people have about using CBD products is that they’re related to cannabis. They assume that hemp contains high levels of THC just like marijuana cannabis; however, this is not the case at all.

Where your average medical marijuana cannabis plant will produce flowers containing THC levels of 14-18%, hemp plants contain very little THC at all. The average content of THC in hemp is between .05 and 1%. Hemp has also been shown to contain more CBD then the typical cannabis plant.

2. CBD products made from hemp are legal in 50 states
CBD extracted from hemp is advantageous to people living in states that have made it illegal to consume CBD products derived from cannabis. Because most CBD products that have been derived from hemp contain THC levels less then .03%, they’re legal to consume anywhere. This means that people living in states that have not approved medical marijuana use, can still benefit from the soothing properties found in CBD.

3. CBD from hemp can’t get you high
Because of the extremely low THC content found in CBD products made from hemp, there is no way they can produce any of the psychoactive effects associated with cannabis use. Simply put, CBD from hemp can’t get you high. And, if you’re required to take a drug test (as many professionals are these days), using hemp-derived CBD products won’t make you test positive.

The 15 Benefits of Mangoes

In Jamaica it is Mangoes season, we have various types of Mango trees and I am very blessed to have a few trees in my garden.

Mango trees are one of the most cultivated fruits in the tropics. Beyond the sweet, luscious taste of mangoes, they also contain an abundance of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that assure your optimum health.

Here are a few benefits:

  1. Mangoes contain enzymes for breaking down protein and are rich in Fiber, so if you have at least one mango every day, you are almost guaranteed to prevent constipation, piles, and symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)
  2. Mangoes are rich in Potassium (4% in 156 mg) and Magnesium (2% in 9 mg) and are a great remedy for high blood pressure.
  3. Mangoes can prevent Cancer; research has shown antioxidant compounds in mango fruits have been found to protect against colon, breast, leukemia and prostate cancers.mangoes
  4. Mangoes are closely related to Skin Care. Other than bringing a healthy glow to your face, they also help to lighten skin color and treat acne by opening the clogged pores of the skin. Unclogging the pores of the skin is the most effective way to eliminate acne. You don’t need to eat them every day; you can remove the pulp and apply it on the skin for around 10 minutes, then rinse it off.
  5. Mangoes Alkalize the whole body; Remember that cancer cannot survive in an alkaline environment. Mango is rich in tartaric acid, malic acid and traces of citric acid that primarily help in maintaining the alkali reserve of the body.
  6. Mangoes lowers Cholesterol; the high levels of fiber, pectin and vitamin C help to lower serum cholesterol levels
  7. Mangoes can help with your Sex Drive; the vitamin E content in these fruits can even help boost your sex life by triggering the activity of your sex hormones.
  8. Mangoes improves Eyes Health; one cup of sliced mangoes supplies 25 percent of the needed daily value of vitamin A, which promotes good eyesight and prevents night blindness and dry eyes.
  9. Mangoes delay Aging; they contain high amounts of vitamin A and C, which help produce collagen proteins inside the body. Collagen helps protect blood vessels and the body’s connective tissues, thereby slowing down the natural aging process.
  10. Mangoes promote Brain Health; they have abundant quantities of vitamin B6, which is vital for maintaining and improving the brain’s function and contribute to help with mood and sleeping patterns. The glutamine acid content in mangoes also improves concentration and memory.
  11. Mangoes may help with Diabetes; mango leaves help normalize insulin levels in the blood ~ boil mango leaves in water, soak through the night and then consume the filtered concoction in the morning~  Mangoes also have a relatively low glycemic index (41-60) so moderate quantities will not spike your sugar levels.
  12. Mangoes are providing Iron for women; they are rich in iron, hence it is a great natural solution for people suffering from anemia. Menopausal and pregnant women can indulge in mangoes as this will increase their iron levels and calcium at the same time.
  13. Mangoes can be part of a weight loss aid; they have a lot of vitamins and nutrients that help the body feel fuller. Also, the fibrous fruit boosts the digestive function of the body by burning additional calories, helping in weight loss.
  14. Mangoes can boost your Immune System; mangoes are rich in beta-carotene, a powerful carotenoid. This element helps to enhance the immune system and make it resistant to bacteria and toxins.
  15. Mangoes can avoid Asthma; beta-carotene can lower your risk for developing asthma.

 

Nutrition of one cup of mango with Daily Value:  

  • 105 calories
  • 76 percent vitamin C (antioxidant and immune booster)
  • 25 percent vitamin A  (antioxidant and vision)
  • 11 percent vitamin B6 plus other B vitamins (hormone production in brain and heart disease prevention)
  • 9 percent healthy probiotic fiber
  • 9 percent copper (copper is a co-factor for many vital enzymes plus production of red blood cells)
  • 7 percent potassium (to balance out our high sodium intake)
  • 4 percent magnesium

Mangoes also provide calcium; iron; and powerful antioxidants such as zeaxanthin, quercetin, astragalin and beta-carotene.

 

How to use Mangoes?

Mangoes keep relatively well. Unripe fruit can be left to ripen at room temperature; a fruit that is still green will ripen in a week, or faster if it is placed in a paper bag. Mangoes taste best when eaten at peak ripeness. Ripe mangoes can be kept in the refrigerator for 1 to 2 weeks. Mangoes can be frozen, cooked in syrup or puréed; sugar and lime or lemon juice may be added if desired.

 

Cautions when using mangoes:

Since mangoes are of the same family of pistachios or cashews, if you have an allergy to pistachios or cashews, then you should probably avoid mangoes.

If you have a latex allergy, a reaction is possible with mangos, particularly green mangos. This reaction develops because of anacardic acid

Mangos are ripened by some dealers using calcium carbide, which can cause serious health problems (one more reason to buy organic). If you do have inorganic mangoes, wash them properly before consuming or soak overnight in water.

Mango peel and sap contain urushiol, the chemical in poison ivy and poison sumac which can cause an allergic reaction in susceptible individuals.

Irish Moss and its benefits

Since diagnosed with Endometriosis ( a condition resulting from the appearance of endometrial tissue outside the uterus and causing pelvic pain, especially associated with menstruation), I am doing some research to calm the pain and try to remove the lesions without getting a surgery and I found that eating foods which are good for resolving blood stasis will help me. It includes kelp, vinegar, lemons, limes, onions, Irish moss and bladder wrack (the last two are seaweeds). Being in Jamaica, Irish moss is quite inexpensive and easy to find, so I decided to include it in my diet. Irish Moss has many benefits also.

 

A little history:

The Irish Moss is a seaweed that was original found near Ireland hence the name. The Irish consumed Irish moss during the famine of the 19th century in Ireland.

Irish moss or Chondrus crispus is a type of red algae harvested from the Atlantic coastline of North America, Great Britain, Iceland, and, as the name suggests, Ireland. The seaweed also grows on rocks in Jamaica. Irish migrants to Jamaica brought the tradition of the Irish Moss to Jamaica. ​

<==Red Algae

My cooked Irish moss ==>

 

Irish moss is usually harvested in the summer and then dried for
herbal.

The principal constituent is a mucilaginous body, made of the polysaccharide carrageenan, which constitutes 55% of its weight. The organism also consists of nearly 10% protein and about 15% mineral matter, and is rich in iodine and sulfur. When softened in water it has a sea-like odor and because of the abundant cell wall polysaccharides it will form a jelly when boiled, containing from 20 to 100 times its weight of water.

Irish moss is so rich in a certain polysaccharide called carrageenan, it is widely used as a thickening agent, stabilizer and lubricant in the food, cosmetic and pharmaceutical industries.

Gelatin is a very common binder in a variety of foods, however, it isn’t vegetarian/vegan friendly as it comes from the collagen within animal bones and skin. As a substitute, Irish moss is used as a vegan gelatin agent.

Instead of the animal based gelatin, the carrageenan extract from the seaweed is used in vegetarian packaged and frozen foods, milk, ice cream, and yogurt.

It’s not only used for food, it is a common ingredient in organic/vegan/cruelty-free makeup, toothpastes, lotion, and shampoos.

 

How do I prepare the Irish Moss that can be added to my meals?

Popularized in Jamaica and other Caribbean countries, the Irish moss drink is a beverage made from boiling the alga for an hour while adding flavorings, sweetened condensed milk, rum and spices. It is believed to be an aphrodisiac.

I don’t prepare it as a beverage but I keep it full in the fridge once it is done:

  1. Wash the Irish Moss to remove sand and other matter.
  2. Place the Irish Moss in a pot and bring to a boil. ( at least 1 hour)
  3. Add gum arabic (or acacia gum) , isinglass (kind of gelatin)
  4. Boil for another 10 min
  5. Drain it and let it get cold before putting the Irish Moss in the fridge.

I use at least 1 spoon for each meal. It can be blended in a smoothie, or in a soup, or I even put it in my food. I find that it has no taste.

 

Its Benefits

Irish Moss is being used to thicken smoothies and milks, and even in custardy desserts; but it has also multiple health benefits:

  • The Iodine, more concentrated in sea moss than any other food  is a serious fuel for the Thyroid. Selenium is also present in abundance and is a necessary factor in thyroid hormone production.The thyroid relies on regular iodine intake in order to convert the iodine into hormones.
  •  Potassium is very important to our body to support our mental/emotional health. Adding high-potassium foods like Sea Moss to the diet can significantly improve behavior and mental functioning (especially for ADD children!). High potassium foods can relieve many symptoms of anger, irritability, anxiety disorders, depression, and fibromyalgia.
  • Irish Moss also contains Algin. This phytonutrient has therapeutic value as a heavy metal detoxifying agent which means that it helps pull heavy metals out of the tissues of our bodies. Additionally, Sea Moss is a healing agent to all mucous membranes (great for external skin health and internal digestive tract health) and has a mild laxative effect.
  • Irish Moss is great to support our Immune system, it helps relieve and prevent symptoms of colds and flus. Irish moss is a source of potassium chloride, a nutrient which helps to dissolve the inflammation and phlegm in the mucous membranes, which cause congestion. It also contains compounds which act as natural antimicrobial and antiviral agents, helping to get rid of any infections.

Truth about Fluoride and its side-effects

For the last decade, we’ve been hearing so many facts/side effects that people get using  Fluoride. Dentists still say that it is the way to help against teeth decay but we all know this is far from the truth. Fluoride is found mostly in toothpaste but also some municipalities are adding it to the drinking water.

Fluoride is a secondary product of the aluminum industry that accumulates in the body and the brain which might lead to severe neurological damage. Exposure to fluoride is  suspected of impacting nearly every part of the human body, and the potential for harm has been clearly established in scientific research.

Some facts:

  • Most developed counties do not fluoridate their water
  • Fluoridated countries do not have less tooth decay than non fluoridated countries
  • Fluoride affects many tissues in your body besides your teeth and lead to a wide variety of health problems:
    • Bone cancer
    • Thyroid disease
    • Diabetes
    • Hypertension
    • Immune system complications
    • Lower IQ
    • Rapid aging
    • Learning disability
    • Iodine deficiency ….
  • Fluoridation is not a natural process
  • For infants, fluoridated water provides NO benefits only risks
  • 40% for American Teenagers show visible signs of fluoride overexposure with dental fluorosis.
  • Fluoride supplements have never been approved by FDA ens
  • Fluoride is the only medicine  added to Public water
  • Swallowing fluoride provides little benefits to teeth
  • Disadvantaged communities are the most disadvantaged by fluoride

 

water or fluoride

There’s no doubt about it: Fluoride should not be ingested.

Did you know?

  • Fluoride is so toxic that it is considered as hazardous waste by EPA (Environmental Protection Agency)
  • Hitler fluoridated the water in the concentration camps to sedate the prisoners
  • Fluoride is the same ingredients in rat poison and prozac
  • Crest was the first fluoride toothpaste created in 1955

Dr Kathy Thiessen, Director and Senior Scientist at the Oak Ridge Center for Risk Analysis in Tennessee is strongly opposed to fluoridation. As she explains:

“[Recent data] … indicates no significant benefit from water fluoridation, but a significant association with dental fluorosis, a situation that will not be avoided by fluoridating all cities at 0.7.mg/L … At the very least, even if dental fluorosis is considered only a cosmetic problem, it takes money to treat to improve a person’s appearance and perhaps his or her self-esteem … A growing number of studies indicate associations between dental fluorosis and increased risk of various health problems. Considerable evidence indicates that water fluoridation is an unsafe and unethical practice, with little or no real benefit.”
