What’s so great about CBD Oil?

cbdchemistryIs this another form of wacky weed? Nope. CBD Oil or cannabidiol oil may be one constituent of Cannabis Sativa, but it is not the psychoactive one. That’s theTHC. Can you get CBD without THC? Yes, you can. This is what you can derive from the hemp plant. In the U.S., though you would not be able to grow your own hemp, it is perfectly legal to purchase it and to take CBD oil.

Why would I be interested in CBD? 

CDB, or cannabadiol oil is a powerful substance. It is not a psychoactive substance and it is not addictive. You can also get CBD in the marijuana plant and derive benefit from it with a very low percentage of THC. Much of this production is happening now because of the legalization of pot in several states. This article, however, will deal only with CBD derived from hemp.

So, CBD is a very powerful positive force for good. My personal experience with taking CBD is that it intuitively seems to activate the pineal. There is no research on this so far, just a feeling that I felt. I also felt sharper and calmer upon taking it. So, what is the science on this, then? I want to discuss some of the research that has been done so far. The effects include, but are not limited to the following:

  • Decreased levels of anxiety and regulation of the hippocampus.
  • Regulation of insulin, ghrelin and leptin levels (which can be helpful for weight loss).
  • Reduced levels of inflammation in the body, and typically as a result less pain.
  • Healing of the gut, including research that shows considerable improvement in irritable bowel disease.
  • Positive effects on the brain in a variety of ways. One of the known positive effects is the reduction of seizures which has successfully helped epileptics and has been one of the leading uses of CBD derived from hemp.
  • It may have profound effects on cancer, although those have not yet been researched extensively. We do know that CBD seems to have a positive impact on the immune system including the improvement in T Helper cells and cells that generally help to destroy cancer cells (like NK cells).
  • Epileptics are one of the leading groups using and benefitting from CBD oil. This tells us that CBD probably has a calming or modulating effect on the electrical systems of the brain.

I remember being very worried about that fly on the wall…

When you think of your experience with pot, or the stereotypical experience, you can imagine folks to have their anxiety (paranoia even!) ramped up. Some people are afraid to smoke pot for this very reason! However, it is the action of THC to increase brain chemicals that could cause this increased feeling of anxiety. CBD has the opposite effect. It can be very soothing and calming.cbdpicture

A 2013 study on stress and CBD found the following: activation of the cannabinoid receptor with CBD helped to reduce the effects of stress on the brain. It is this repeated stress on the brain that can cause physiological changes (to the hippocampus and the amygdala) that can lead to anxiety and depression. Specifically, the study found that, “CBD…significantly reduced expression of glucocorticoid receptors in the amygdala and hippocampus…Our findings suggest that cannabinoid receptor activation could represent a novel approach to the treatment of cognitive deficits that accompany a variety of stress related…disorders.” (Journal of Neuropsychopharmacology, July 2013).

To really understand the impact of CBD, it is essential to understand something called the endocannabanoid system. This is a group of receptors that was literally named as such because of their effect on the ECB receptors in the brain. This system plays a crucial role in regulating our physiology, our mood and how we experience the world around us. The simple truth is that CBD oil helps to regulate these receptors in a very positive way. Because CBD from hemp has no psychoactive (THC) side, the benefits are positive and the substance is not addictive.

CBD can profoundly modulate your immune system. This is something we will all find very helpful in an age where both chronic infections and autoimmune disease are concerns for many people. In the Journal of Leukocyte Biology, it was reported that the EDC receptors, when stimulated by CBD, may help to regulate T Helper cells and inflammatory cytokines.

How can you start using CBD oil? I personally recommend the resinous form of CBD over pills or tinctures. I find that these have the best pricing for the amount of CBD you receive and the least amount of filler. You pay for the CBD and that’s it! You can take as little as 10mg per day. That is just a very small amount, like a dab on your finger.

The Kuberakolam – Magnet for Prosperity

The Kuberakolam is a numerical sequence. It is based on the Hindu god, Kubera, the god of wealth. The kuberakolam is typically drawn with rice flour on the floors of houses in South India (the kolam is a sacred form of painting using rice flour). It is meant to bring good energy into the home and to welcome abundance. Here it is just meaning this particular form of the drawing, shown below.

Aligned Kuberakolam
Aligned Kuberakolam

The magic numbers, in their particular arrangement and in 3 rows and 3 columns are known as the magic square. This order and arrangement creates a frequency. That frequency draws prosperity, good fortune and financial success. Each row and each column (up, down and the main diagnonals) all add up to 72. This is a sacred number and there is a coherence to the entire square in the 72 being represented along all of these lines.

Viewing the magic square and meditating on the numbers is what connects you to the energy of prosperity. I have taken the Kubera number sequence and superimposed in on Frank Chester’s chestahedron. The chestahedron is a represntation of the energy that permeates the heart. It is a vortex. There is a similar vortex giving power to the left ventricle of the heart. Combine the connection with, and clearing of, the heart with the desire to manifest prosperity. The result: manifestation that is in alignment with your highest self. Try meditating on this Kuberakolam each morning as you review or focus on your daily goals, aspirations and intentions.

Kubera also has some specific mantras. Reciting these mantras also are powerful sacred sounds that attract money, abundance, good fortune and success.

Please share your comments below about how you feel after meditating of focusing on the Kuberakolam, the chestahedron sacred geometrical shape or the Kubera Prosperity Mantras. Here’s to your success and abundance!

What is Pulsed Electromagnetic Therapy (PEMF)?

Importance of circulation

Have you heard of EMF’s? Many of my clients have heard me talk about electromagnetic frequencies. In that case, we are talking about frequencies that are generally not beneficial. Those are the ones that come from the wireless internet, from cell phones or from cell towers. Because people are more aware of EMF’s, they sometimes get confused about PEMF.

Pulsed electromagnetic frequencies are different, though. These are therapeutic energies that can have highly beneficial effects on human physiology.

Here are some of those physiological effects:

  • Increased circulation.
  • Increased health at a cellular level.
  • More efficient ATP production from mitochondria.
  • Healthy resting cell membrane potential.
  • Better excretion of waste at a cellular level.

Jerry Tenant said in his book, “Healing Is Voltage”, that we are electrical beings before we are chemical beings. After 12 years of clinical practice, my observation is that energetic therapies can often reach to places that supplementation can not. It if for this reason that I am continuing to do research in therapies like PEMF.

A technology that I support, which generates PEMF frequencies is a BEMER mat. To learn more about the mat, please see enjoy this webinar:
