CBD oil? 🍁 — read below 👇

What are your thoughts on CBD oil? 
Does it work for you? Being in pain sucks so I’m gonna try some out. 😝
Brand that I’m using:
@lovecbdoil 
Dutch CBD oil
The cannabis food supplement
500mg CBD & CBDa 
https://www.lovecbd.org
 Bought from: real foods 
https://www.realfoods.co.uk/product/34500/dutch-oil-500mg-cbd-supplement-vegan
😝
I’ve been reading a lot about cbd oil recently and I’ve read for IBD sufferers it can help to limit the pain, helps to reduce inflammation and can improve appetite. I’m also hoping it will help me to sleep as just now I’m getting really bad insomnia.
😝
So let’s put this to the test 🤔 I’ll take it everyday for a month and see how it goes. Should I buy one of there e liquids and vape instead?? What would be more effective? Will keep everyone updated so keep an eye out for daily posts and stories!! 😝
What does it taste like?
So I didn’t mind the taste of it at all. It sort of reminded me of chamomile tea 🌾 or a bit like wheat 🤣 that’s just my opinion though. 😝

Getting my interview on this afternoon. It has to do with Sports Apparel and Memorabilia, should be a great fit. #halifax #interview #eastcoast #sports #memorabilia #nhl #nba #nfl #mlb #hellyeah #goforit #crohns #crohnswarrior #ibd #invisibleillness #autoimmune
So I love breakfast foods and I’ve had such a hard time not having brunch or breakfast items so today I thought I would take a stab at it. 
Grain free Banana peanut butter dark chocolate pancakes and maca “coffee” 🥞was the only thing I could come up w. I’ll have to think of something else later. And this recipe wasn’t perfect but it was pretty good. Didn’t have any natural maple syrup so I used 85% dark chocolate 🍫 & all natural organic peanut butter. This is dessert for breakfast haven’t had anything this sweet or decadent in a WHILE so I couldn’t even finish half of these. 
I think my sweet tooth is slowly dying as I progress in my paleo journey...how sad 😂🍰🚫 .

You will always have a “hard” you have to choose which one you want to live with:
👏🏼It’s hard to wake up early, workout and eat clean.
👏🏼It’s hard to wake up and feel disappointed that you made no effort to get to where you want to be.

I’m a bad liar 🤷🏼‍♀️ positivity is a great thing, but positivity all the time is impossible. It’s okay to be mad that you’re sick sometimes, especially if you’re using that anger to fight to make things better. •

To think I was only going to have 1 child left home this year that wasnt going to school.  But when my son finally got diagnosed with #crohnsdisease #crohns  #crohnswarrior and  #ulcerativecolitis @gregoryscrohnies  and had to stay home and have home schooling that it would be great for his sister! !! #brothersister ......
After 3 infusions he's finally doing way better! !!!! He got out to play with his sister. He's been through a lot and has missed  a lot,  including friends and being at school. We are so proud of him and his brothers and sisters don't really understand.  They just know he's sick.  #lifetimeillness #lifetimedisease #ibd #remicade #infusions

Recap 2nd day at Clear Passage:
1. No headache
2. No bloating after eating or drinking
3. Abdominal cavity sore from massages- which is normal.
4. Slugishness- can occur with some patients
5. Appetite suppressed- this is normal as well.
6. Overall feeling of wellness

So far I can say, I am very pleased with the results. I still have 3 more days to go, so will comment on my impression and well being after the completion of the program!!! #clearpassage#crohnssolutions#crohnswarrior#crohnsproblems#wurntechnique#healing#healingsolutions#research#dontsettleforless#takehealthintoyourhands#lookforoptions#natureheals#empowerment#healthishappiness#healthiswealth

When they say (because some people STILL do say) food has little or nothing to do with IBD, I laugh inside.
.
Except nothing is funny, I’m laughing because that could not be further from the truth.
.
Bodies dealing with this autoimmune disease need even MORE nutrient dense foods than the average person. They are dealing with immunity overdrive, chronic inflammation, and often fatigue, dehydration, weight loss, joint pain, and more.
.
My nutrient dense plate full of #realfood: 2 organic eggs cooked in @kerrygoldusa, Ground bison seasoned with spices, bok choy sautéed in onion, garlic, sea salt,and olive oil and avocado. Not processed food-like ingredients, just REAL FOOD.

Happy Wednesday my friends ☀️ Today I am extra happy because I went to see my #GI and my #colonoscopy results are better than I expected 🙌 No fistulas and only some minor ulcers 👊 I will be starting #remicade soon because I do have fistulization issues. BUT I am so happy to not be flaring or to have to go on any other meds 🤗 I kept telling my doctor I felt great and she seemed to think it was funny because I guess most crohnies don’t!!! But I try really hard to take care of myself and my diet. I’m also going to be doing iron effusions because I am #anemic 😑 I still feel amazing!! I hope and pray that God will continue to heal me and watch over me 💜 Just wanted update on my symptoms and although #crohnssucks I known I will continue to overcome thanks to my Lord Jesus ✝️ have a blessed day everyone 💜

Stop letting the clutter distract you from your goal.  Step over it and keep focused on what you want to be.

Lately I've been getting mad Ideas and I'm choosing to just go with them and flow with them.
We spend so much time anxious about what may and may not happen. 
Why not let go of the control and just flow and see what unfolds?♡

Remember that patience benefits you. You may want to kick and scream at someone and to keep your calm and composure feels like you're letting them win. You're not. You're saving yourself. Patience is YOUR virtue, not theirs. And you can always go home and scream into a pillow

Pyjamas😍💜 I'm so excited to wear my PJ's and my favourite dressing gown all day today 😍
I'm quite excited to hopefully be asked questions about IBD today, I love educating people on this illness and really think today will hopefully be a success!
Still, if you're about, please come on down to Starbucks Salisbury in Southampton road, just pop in for a coffee and a chat 😊

Highly pretentious photo but I was experimenting and thought it was cool so to hell with it!

Was really hoping for nice weather this weekend for an outdoors ride to show off my snazzy new Women on Bikes cycle cap. But alas, snow and high winds means it's another indoor ride.
.
I first stumbled across @women_on_bikes on Instagram and instantly clicked with its strong female girl cyclists theme. I noticed many photos of women wearing these cool caps. Then I discovered you can get them from @wobapparel . Mine came this week and I've been excited to try it out 😁 .
I've got black on top and blue-purple underneath but you can get whatever colour you want. I want more...hey if the cap fits! #buyitineverycolor

This year was our first experience really introducing the boys to the spirit of the ANZAC. .
It was our first Dawn Service together and the first time they wore replicas of their Dad's medals. I'm a crier... and I definitely teared up today. .
On here I often talk about being an #IBDWarrior or a #crohnswarrior , well today salutes the original warriors and I wanted to pay tribute to that tradition. Also to the families that fly the home flag while their partner's are serving away from home. .
It is one thing I haven't had to do as a parent and I am grateful - I take my hat off to the families who are supporting a loved one in active service.
.
Today is about support, reflection and the mentality that no one gets left behind. .
I will leave you with a saying that stuck with me this morning: 'Their service. Their sacrifice. Our Freedom'. I hope you are enjoying your ANZAC Day xx

I had my first infusion of 2018 on January 21st. I finally received my bill from the hospital in mid March. After numerous calls to the hospital billing department, my insurance company, and the medicine company who is providing financial assistance (definitely look into remistart from Jansen CarePath if you are on #Remicade), I can happily say the bill is settled with only some coming from out of pocket. Although these phone calls took up lots of time, they did help me overcome my social awkwardness when it comes to phone calls. Dealing with billing can be a pain, but I have learned that persistence pays off. Calling all these people helped me reduce my out-of-pocket cost for the infusion and now I have my out-of-pocket costs covered for the year! 🤗
I had my first infusion of 2018 on January 21st. I finally received my bill from the hospital in mid March. After numerous calls to the hospital billing department, my insurance company, and the medicine company who is providing financial assistance (definitely look into remistart from Jansen CarePath if you are on #Remicade ), I can happily say the bill is settled with only some coming from out of pocket. Although these phone calls took up lots of time, they did help me overcome my social awkwardness when it comes to phone calls. Dealing with billing can be a pain, but I have learned that persistence pays off. Calling all these people helped me reduce my out-of-pocket cost for the infusion and now I have my out-of-pocket costs covered for the year! 🤗
Today marks my one year anniversary of being diagnosed with Crohn’s Disease. This year has definitely been very long, hard, and tiring. This past year I have had 1 colonoscopy, 1 endoscopy, multiple remicade infusions, humira injections, been on steroids for months, taken so many pills that I don’t even know the names of, and even had a surgery that I got extremely sick from. I’ve been through all of these things still not to achieve remission but I have never once given up. What’s kept me going is knowing that one day I will feel better. My doctors will find the right medicine recipe for me and things will be better. Life gets hard and things might try to knock you down but you have to get up no matter what. Stand strong, believe in yourself, and believe in the people around you. Things will get better! ☺️ #crohnsstrong #crohnsdisease #crohnswarrior #staystrong #believeinyourself

So happy that the nice warm weather is starting! . ————————————————————————
With the exception of my sister-in-laws bachelorette trip to Cuba. I missed all of Summer 2017 from being so sick, in and out of the hospital and finally my surgery. ———————————————————————— I am beyond excited for Summer 2018 to start and do some adventuring 🔆🔆🔆

Loving my new hair! :) ...also first time I’ve been confident enough to post any pics with even the tiniest bit of my ostomy pouch showing... #crohnswarrior #beyoubeconfident #instacrohns
Repping my  @outlawlaboratory gear. Crushed some clap pull ups even when I’m weighing 200 pounds. Don’t use weight as an excuse to not being able to do something, cause assholes like me will do shit like this. #iamanoutlaw #beanoutlaw #outlawlaboratory #crohns #crohnswarrior #pullups
This is my absolute favorite verse. Okay...I know I say that about a lot of verses. But this is definitely in my top 3.
Nothing is more encouraging to me than knowing that no matter what goes "wrong", no matter how terrible a situation may seem (for example, a chronic disease) God makes EVERYTHING work out for our best interest, so long as we just love him! God can use the most awful Things and turn them into some pretty amazing miracles. He can use a flat tire to prevent a horrific car accident. He can use the loss of a job to allow someone to find their passion. He can use a clogged pipe to reveal a much bigger problem that you otherwise wouldn't have seen. And he can use my sickness to encourage others and lead them to salvation.
This is why the Bible also tells us to REJOICE in our suffering. And why I never seem to worry when things get hard. Because I know that my God takes great care of me. I know that everything will always work out for good. It always does, every single time. ❤
My God is amazing.

Need we say more ? If you are trying to reverse symptoms of auto immune disorder or want to adapt to a healthier lifestyle , it would need to be a part of your life and not some occasional diet experiment. .
The way to do it is by shifting your perspective and being conscious about what you are putting in your body and by choosing foods that love you back

When it comes to digestion, DAIRY is one of the toughest mofos for your gut to dance with. Due to that fact- dairy substitutes are a HUGE trend in the nutrition game right now.
_
I recently purchased this dairy free milk called Ripple from the market. While I was initially let down because I thought it was called Nipple, it has a great smooth taste that any milk lover would enjoy. Not only that, but it is made from pea protein(you know those little green things) that make it better for you than regular milk- zero sugar, less calories, and nearly 50% MORE calcium.
_
If your a big cereal person, like a little spritz of the white stuff in your coffee, or just straight up like milk- I urge you to give it a taste.

Meet 2009 Melissa. I drank, a lot. I was uncomfortable in my own skin. My confidence was non existent. My Crohn’s was out of control. .
.
.
Now meet 2018 Melissa. 3 kids later and in better shape now than before kids. Stronger, more confident, and ok I still drinks but her Crohn’s has been in remission for 2 years and I’ve learned that I don’t have to completely give up all of the things I enjoy in order to stay in shape. .
.
Some people don’t understand my accountability groups, why they are needed, why I even bother to plaster my shake drinking self all over your social media. But here is what I do know...
.
.
I don’t need everyone to understand them. I need the people who are where I once was to know that there is something they can do to feel better about themselves. There is something they can do to naturally help crush their depression and anxiety. If even one person finds an outlet through me that I am so grateful to find from MY coach then I’ve paid it forward and I’m happy with that. .
.
So if you’ve been watching my journey. If you are curious, chase it. Let me help you! Let’s make your own #transformationtuesday story 😘

I’m opening early enrollment for my May group, check out the link in my bio to join my group!! . ..

Hey Guys! Go check out @chronicloveclub to hear some really inspiring stories! Read mine here: #Repost

CLC MEMBER FEATURE: Hi There, my name is Lauren and I was diagnosed with moderate to severe Crohn’s disease at the age of 12. I’m now 25 years old living in South Boston and working at an advertising agency. Normal, right? But what most people don’t know about me is that I’ve had a permanent ileostomy bag since I was 19.
•
It took quite a few months to diagnose my disease, but it all started with the bathroom. When I wasn’t in the bathroom, I was thinking about going to the bathroom. Where was the bathroom in the mall? How am I going to ask my teacher to leave class more than once in a period? I couldn’t eat, couldn’t keep any weight on, and quite frankly didn’t know what it was like to not have a stomach ache. One colonoscopy later and I’ve got Crohn’s disease!
•
Since diagnosis, I’ve had quite the journey - and a difficult one at that. My disease took a turn for the worst right at the end of my high school career as I entered college. It was during that time when I acquired multiple abscesses, drug reactions, and eventually wound up on the operating table for an emergency surgery due to a total bowel obstruction. A few more surgeries and resections lead to my permanent ileostomy bag and I wouldn’t change it for the world!
•
Besides my Crohn’s, I love all things fashion and you can usually find me at the yoga studio or the closest TJ Maxx. I’m newly super open about all of this, and would love to chat about similar experiences :) Never let this disease get you down!
