    Learning about CBD Oil with Dr. Matthew Ruiz

CBD is the non-intoxicating component of the cannabis plant and is used to treat a long list of conditions including chronic pain, cancer, Crohn’s, diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, PTSD, cardiovascular disease, anxiety, antibiotic-resistant infections, multiple sclerosis, schizophrenia, and more.

    SEIZURES:
    We talk about 5 year old Charlotte Figi who went from 300 seizures a week to not having one after the first seven days of treatment. It was the story that really helped change the laws for Medical Marijuana and really shined a light on CBD oil in particular. It was the Stanley Brothers in Colorado that developed the strain called Charlottes Web which is a non psychoactive oil that contains less than 0.3% THC.
     
    RESEARCH:
    Researchers from the University of Alabama at Birmingham did a study on CBD Oil treating seizures and found that in a study of 51 subjects 50% responded to the CBD oil therapy with overall sustained improvement in seizure control over a six month period.

    Adaptogens & Juice (w/ Matt Shook owner of JuiceLand)

    Our guest today is Matt Shook, Matt is the owner of Juice Land here in Austin, TX and on the show we'll talk about the benefits of juicing fresh vegetables and fruits. When you juice vegetables and fruits you access digestive enzymes that are normally locked away in the fiber. Most commercial juices are processed and lacking in nutrition, while freshly juiced veggies and fruits are loaded with vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients. We'll also explore other adaptogens and extracts that work really well with raw juices.  
    Herbs and superfoods that boost stamina, energy and / or recovery:
     
    Raw beets or beet juice - boosts nitric oxide levels and supports heart health. Pineapple - has the enzyme bromelain, an enzyme known to support inflammation response.  Spirulina -  energizing blue green algae known as great source of minerals, carotenoids, vitamins, and all sorts of other micronutrients.  Turmeric - supports inflammation response. You can enhance the absorption of turmeric when you add black pepper or black pepper extract. CBD - supports inflammation response Maca - Peruvian superfood/adaptogen that boost energy, stamina, and recovery from strenuous exercise.

    Relieving Chronic Pain

    Relieving Chronic Pain

    Today’s show is about relieving symptoms of Chronic Pain. We call it chronic pain because it’s the type of pain that persists even after an injury has healed. It’s when Pain signals continue to be active in the nervous system for weeks, months or even years. The effects of it include limited mobility, tense muscles, lack of energy and after a while, can lead to depression and anxiety.
     
    Common types of chronic pain include:
    Headaches
    Lower Back Pain
    Arthritis
    Nerve damage
     
    Some of the questions on today’s show are from people who are dealing with serious pain issues and although this is a show where we talk a lot about plants, we’re excited to switch gears and have special guest Dr. Sarah Dunagan from Axis Chiropractic join the show today.

Stimulants vs Nutrients

I'm new to the herbs and extracts world and used to think energy drinks were good because they had Vitamine B, I'm also a big coffee person whick is pretty much stimulants. The sleep emisode was great because that is the root of my problem, they extracts they recomended were spot on. Getting sleep and taking Ashwagandha and Maca have made a big improvement. Also just ordered your Dr Vim's product from your website. Looking forward to trying that out as well. Thanks for explaining this in an easy way, show notes were really helpful with the sleep episode.
