In 2004, having fallen and fractured my spine, I began a slow death spiral as an addict to legal opioids. For the next eight years, I battled depression and stomach ulcers. At the end of every month, I would face withdrawal symptoms, as well as the fear of running out of medication.
At one point, I was prescribed 1080 total pills every month! More than half were opioids, while the rest were prescribed to fix the problems opium was causing.
In 2012, I was rushed to the emergency room with bleeding ulcers. This happened again in 2014. I had lost almost 40 pounds during this time period. I was killing myself.
One night at the end of the month in 2014, I was facing imminent withdrawal sickness. Let me tell you: withdrawal sucks! I was not eligible for a refill but I needed the drugs. I grabbed a gun and went to a nearby pharmacy. I sat outside that store for about an hour. Finally, I decided that the best thing I could do would be to break away from the addictive drugs. I went home, went through some withdrawal sickness, and started planning my strategy.
It took me another two years to successfully get free. Eleven years after beginning my journey with opioids, I was able to beat the addiction through the use of medical marijuana, changing to a mostly natural-food diet, focusing on positivity and gratefulness, and getting outside in nature. I have been pharmaceutical free since 2016
Over several years of extensive research, I learned that medical marijuana could help with eliminating opioid addiction while reducing withdrawal symptoms and providing natural pain relief. I discovered that there was proven science backing up marijuana as medicine. I researched cannabis and hemp: their uses, benefits, and side effects, and how cannabinoids help the human body create homeostasis naturally, without side effects, addiction, or overdose issues.
As a master grower, I was aware of plant nutrient needs, and I realized that they are very similar to human nutrient needs. I began researching fruits, vegetables, and herbs extensively. Learning that nature provides all the nutrients a body needs. Consuming a variety of organic foods everyday will keep your body in a perfect state to fight off disease. As my body healed I was able to focus on my mind as well. You must; get your body right, to get your mind right, to get your life right.
I have also studied many current and historical positive thought mentors. Learning that, "we are what we think we are", as well as negative thoughts attract negative things, and positive thoughts attract positive outcomes.
I combined all of this knowledge to devise my theory on; The Three Life Centers of the body. Keeping these three areas balanced will keep your life balanced.
Medical marijuana helped reduce my drug withdrawal symptoms, enabling me to eliminate opioids, and I credit it with saving my life..
Because of my success eating and medicating naturally, maintaining positivity and gratitude, while embracing nature, I decided that I wanted to help educate others, and assist them with their own health and life issues.
I've been an advocate for medical marijuana legalization since 2014. I have lobbied senators, traveled statewide to speak on behalf of the cannabis community, and appeared in local forums, to share my journey and bring people's awareness to the benefits of medical marijuana, natural dieting, and positivity.
With this website, my goal is to dispel some myths, while educating you on a plant that has numerous health benefits (cannabis). Simplify your diet to achieve balance and good health through nature. Help you to create an environment of positivity and gratitude, and encourage you to get outside experience nature. I will even share some hidden gardening tips.
I Need your help!!! I am finishing up a booklet on the basics of cannabis history, why and how it works with our bodies, and basic uses. Titled; Medical Marijuana – Simple Truth. It is written for the uninformed, Non-cannabis user who is hearing about CBD and has no idea what its all about. I need a cover so please pick 1) the drawing, 2) dr face, or 3)leaf and stethoscope. Thanks for all your help, leave your vote and I will pick 2 lucky winners to recieve a free copy when I publish… (very soon)
Let me just say, Saying “medical” marijuana, is like saying “Medical” tomatoes, or medical kale.
Marijuana, cannabis, hemp, are in the same plant family. Cannabis Sativa. Yes they have health benefits, just like other plants. All plants have some medicinal benefits. So lets just call it what it is; cannabis. Thanks.
That being said, cannabis is medicinal in that it heals many areas of your body. It assists your body in creating homeostasis. As the cannabinoids (cbd, thc, and over 100 others) interact with your Endocannabinoid System they create a balanced environment by improving communication between your cells. Thus improving your body’s overall health. When used in its natural form, cannabis is body balancing.
Whether you agree with marijuana or not, Here is a little poem for you on how it benefits humanity.
You take zanex I take cannabis… You take vicodin I take cannabis… You take alcohol I take cannabis… You take prozac I take cannabis… Yours is made by man Mine is made by God(whichever one you believe in) … Yours has deadly side effects, Mine has healing side effects. Yours will cause DEATH ☠ mine will saves lives.. ✌️
Maybe we should take a step back, and review how strong our minds are. If you are eating mostly natural-food, your body and mind will be working in homeostasis. When an illness befalls you, your mind will be able to heal you.
Our first move when feeling ill, should be to think “I feel great, I do not get sick”. Get your positivity going full force. If you still get sick, it happens. Start with all natural remedies; elderberry syrup, echinacea, purple, and citrus fruits, green and purple vegies, as well as herbal teas. Healing a cold through nature will take maybe 3 days, and you are not stressing your body. Healing a cold with synthetic drugs, will alter your body unnaturally while it heals you. This will actually make your body work harder, while healing. It has to fight synthetic changes while trying to maintain homeostasis.
Eat and medicate with what nature provides, stay positive, and I guarantee your happiness. When dealing with colds, flu, any disease really, mentally heal yourself. The placebo effect is real, and works as well as synthetic pharmaceuticals.
Possibly the most popular yellow heirloom variety of tomato, the Yellow Pear gets its name from its color and shape. This variety dates back to the 1800s and is a vigorous indeterminate. It produces generously with an abundance of small, yellow pear-shaped tomatoes that are sweet, but mild in flavor. These are a popular table tomato and are relatively cold tolerant (for a tomato), giving them the ability to produce later into the fall than others might. (gardenchannel.com)
Just harvested 3 of my heirloom tomatoes. My sole plant has been hit with “early blight” a disease; maybe from the soil, maybe from the seeds, maybe wind blown?? Im trying neem oil and organic insecticide soap, I cut away 90% of the bad leaves, left a few for photosynthesis. Added some compost, bone meat, and fish water. We’ll see if it helps.
Seriously if you want to be fearless during cold and flu season.. Start adding these herbs to your diet before getting sick. If you do get sick… Double up on these herbs, and “purple” foods (fruits and vegetables, not kool-aid and cake 😂 🤣)
