Fibromyalgia Syndrome and Hemp

We have discussed on this blog Osteoarthritis and we saw the magic of Bitter Kola and how effective it is in curbing the problem. We discuss the issue of prostrate cancer among men and blood pressure in our post titled "Now that I'm 50". Another very disturbing ailment is Fibromyalgia. Fibromyalgia syndrome(FMS) is a term for pattern of general pain without any visible sign of inflammation or signs.

                                                Fibromyalgia and Pain Regions.

Fibromyalgia is a disorder characterize by widespread of musculo-skeletal pain accompany with fatigue and sleeping disorder, memory and mood issue. Patient with Fibromyalgia suffers "fibro fog" (impaired ability to focus, pay attention and concentrate on mental task). And of course pain and fatigue (not to torture words).

Medicine cannot specifically pinpoint the cause of FMS but they see traces of family heredity, it can be triggered by physical and emotional trauma like car accident and other psychological trauma. Illness such as osteoarthritis can awaken it.

Fibromyalgia affect the way the brain processes pain signal thereby amplifies pain sensation. People with fibromyalgia (susceptible to women) suffers tension pain, temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders, irritable bowel syndrome, anxiety and depression. 

If we try to see some of TCM contribution to FMS, we shall discover that TCM had made progress in curbing pain which is the predominant symptoms of FMS. With our blog post, we try to introduce an early form of Tradition Chinese Medical (TCM) therapy to help for pains called zone therapy We also suggested a simple home TCM product for the pain Peppermint oil and Pain Relief. It is no longer news that almost 10 million persons with women carrying the highest number suffers from FMS and about 3% - 6% of the world population spread across both gender and age demography suffers from FMS.

We in our previous post have discussed hemp-seed-oil and we established that when the hemp is processed in oil, the psychoactive compound (THC) is reduce thereby reduce its psycho-activity.  So hemp oil well processed is not psychoactive (doesn't make you high) but it possess its ability to relieve pain. Pain which is a major symptom of fibromyalgia can be curb by Hemp oil popularly called CBD derived from the compound highly found in it called Cannabidiol (CBD) and low traces of Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). CBD can be use to relieve pain dropping it sublingual (below the tongue). This works faster than ingesting it in food and capsules because it goes faster to the blood stream. It can be applied to our cooking like brownies and it could be taken as capsule form. It takes longer time to breakdown in food and capsule compare to taking it sublingual. It can also be applied on sore muscles through massages it takes effect immediately but last for a shorter while compared to when ingested. The quickest of all is to smoke CBD with a vaporizer or e-liquid oil.

Measles is a respiratory disease that is highly communicable. It is transmitted by the mucus or saliva of an infected patent. It is airborne and could be transmitted when an affected persons sneezes or cough to the air. It is common among children but on a rare case adult contact it also.

One traditional way of treating measles is through Palm wine especial among adult. They drink and sometimes pour a little in their bucket of water when having their bath.

How you feel and look when you smile

Smiling would feel good when you gaze through the mirror and you obverse your teeth. How do you feel when after smiling, your smile starts trending as a subject of humor on social media because of teeth coloration. It is worth noting  that the true color of the teeth dentin is yellow. The more you age, the outer part of the teeth called enamel gets worn out revealing the true color of the teeth but they are other factor that also contribute to teeth coloration which are majorly centered on life style. 
One which is worthy of note is fluoride intake. Due to environmental factors, one could come in contact with it in drinking water. or should we start another behavioral communication against the use of tooth paste because we know sodium fluoride is one of the key compound of some toothpaste. should we start a campaign on using chewing stick rather than toothbrush?
