In 2012 Toni Braxton was hospitalized with blood clots. She was rushed to the emergency room, where tests revealed her heart was not getting the oxygen it needed. After a few days, doctors told her she was suffering from lupus, an incurable disease affecting about 1.5 million Americans.
How do you stop lupus from progressing?
While she was in the hospital, Toni opted for the safest route, undergoing extensive blood work and a metabolic-revving diet. Her symptoms were mild at first, but in the long run she was left with a plethora of health complications. One of these was lupus, a chronic autoimmune disease that can affect the skin, lungs, heart and joints. Fortunately for Toni, she has managed to control her disease with the help of a few simple tricks.
One such trick is using hemp oil for lupus. Hemp oil is a blend of cannabinoids that act as anti-inflammatory agents, and can be used to soothe aching muscles and joints. Using the product in combination with a good diet, exercise and plenty of rest is the best way to battle the disease. The oil’s healing properties are attributed to its component cannabidiol (CBD).
Luckily for Toni, she now has the support of Uncle Bud’s, which makes a variety of infused products based on the same hemp oil. From the aforementioned topical cream to a line of shampoo and conditioner, these products make life a little more bearable.
Of course, the most important thing to remember is that you should always consult a doctor before trying any new treatment, especially if you’re already on a medication.
