What Is CBD?

Before we can answer the question “what illness can CBD help with”, it is important to understand what CBD actually is. CBD is short for Cannabidiol. This all-natural substance is one of over 100 chemical compounds found in the marijuana plant. CBD does not contain any of the Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) that causes the “high” sensation that is often associated with marijuana. However, CBD does have many of the same pain and symptom relief qualities associated with traditional consumption of marijuana and cannabis.

Chronic Pain

Chronic pain is something that plagues many of us in our day to day lives. Whether it is the result of an old injury, our jobs, or an illness, chronic pain impacts almost every aspect of our lives. Fortunately, CBD has been proven to help reduce chronic pain.

CBD reduces pain by acting on the vanilloid receptors to reduce inflammation and pain perception. Many arthritis sufferers find relief in various CBD products like oil, lotion, and more. CBD lotion and oil can also offer athletes relief from sore muscles. Best of all, there is very little evidence of side effects when using CBD for pain relief.

Anxiety & Depression

Anxiety and depression are on the rise in our society. Many people are plagued by these illnesses and are impacted daily by their symptoms. CBD has been proven to help a variety of mental health issues including PTSD, general anxiety disorder, OCD, and more.

CBD helps those with anxiety and depression by changing serotonin levels in the brain. Much like with chronic pain, CBD has not displayed intense side effects like some prescription or over-the-counter drugs.

High Blood Pressure

Another way that CBD can help improve your overall health is by reducing your blood pressure and, ultimately, stroke. Although extensive studies have not yet been released about other heart conditions, positive results associated with high blood pressure specifically suggest that other heart conditions could benefit from CBD treatment.

One theory suggests that reduced anxiety symptoms and stress responses associated with CBD treatment could be a large contributor to better blood pressure.

It’s no secret that people have to eat well and stay active in order to remain healthy. But there are other actions that are just as, or even more, important to overall wellness. Keep reading for a few ways to keep your body in peak condition.

Know — and act on — your family history.

Your family’s medical history is your most powerful weapon against surprise diseases. Dignity Health explains that knowing what your parents and grandparents have encountered healthwise can help you prepare for the possibility that you will develop a hereditary condition.

Pay attention to air quality.

If you suffer from a never-ending stuffy nose, unexplained fatigue, or other issues you can’t put your finger on, your home’s air quality might be to blame. While an air purifier can’t remove 100 percent of all pollutants, these devices can make a big difference in the air quality of your home. Changing your HVAC filter regularly and adding an air purifier are the two most important things you can so to correct poor air quality. How To Home offers in-depth information on air purification topics including which device is best for smoke, allergies, pet dander and more.

Do more to keep your feet healthy.

You likely don’t give your feet the treatment they deserve. But you really should pay more attention to your feet. As the platform upon which your body stands, your feet are responsible for getting you to and from where you want to go. If they aren’t in tip-top shape, you’re more likely to sit on the sidelines of life. Keep them clean and dry, wear properly fitting, breathable shoes and trim your toenail the right way, which Everyday Health explains is straight across, to prevent ingrown toenails that can become infected.

Work on your body’s ability to remain flexible.

The benefits of a flexible body are many. Chopra.com includes on this list better blood flow and the ability to start or upkeep an exercise routine. Before and after each workout, stretch your muscles. This will help prevent aches, pains, and spasms. If you suffer from arthritis, stretching is especially important and can give you the edge you need to avoid excess pain from stiff joints.

Keep your heart and lungs strong.

Cardiovascular disease is not just an issue for older, out-of-shape men. In fact, women are just as susceptible to heart disease. Keep your ticker on track by adding whole grains, fruits and vegetables, and reduced-fat dairy products to your diet. Avoid foods that are high in saturated fats and strive for at least 20 minutes of cardiovascular activity every day.

Visit your doctor when you should.

When you were a child, your parents took you to see the pediatrician at least once each year. This was to ensure you were growing and that your body was healthy enough to go to school and participate in extracurricular activities. As an adult, you should also visit your doctor at least once every three years for a wellness visit. This is a routine exam that includes checking your body mass index and overall health and discussing your risk of disease. Adults between the ages of 27 and 49 should be screened for cancer, vision problems, infectious diseases, STDs, and hypertension. If you’re a woman, you will need to see your health care providers more frequently when you are pregnant or trying to become pregnant.

Indulge in private self-care every once in a while.

Just as important as your physical health is your mental health. Keep your mind happy by paying attention to your emotional needs. Do something just for you. Read a book, get a massage, or take a walk in the woods. Whatever you can do to clear your mind and make you feel good about yourself is exactly what you should do

Being healthy means so much more than being thin or having defined muscles. If you want to keep your body moving for as long as possible, you have to pay attention to everything that affects your health.

New spas and massage parlors pop up fairly often pretty much anywhere in the US. Unfortunately, not all of these spas are legitimate. Some are actually sex-businesses disguised as a legitimate spa. This practice can cause all sorts of problems for both therapists and clients. For instance, unsuspecting clients who simply want some relief from their chronic pain can get a nasty surprise when they’re propositioned by a worker at one of these establishments. These types of businesses also create a bad reputation for the industry as a whole while simultaneously making legitimate business unsafe for licensed therapists when their place of work is mistaken for one of these illegal sex businesses.

Here are some simple questions to ask yourself to make sure a new spa is legitimate:

How does the spa market their business?

Sometimes, minute differences in marketing can make a huge difference when it comes to choosing a reputable spa with real therapeutic services and choosing a less than legal business for your relaxation services. For example, real spas advertise a myriad of services and products that address specific ailments like hydrotherapy, myofascial release, and more. However, less than legal businesses will focus on relaxation and “feeling good” with limited add-on services. Massage parlors that are a front for another kind of business are also not likely to spend marketing dollars on gift cards, social media, business cards, or staff uniforms.

What is the level of spa professionalism?

You should also take into account the professionalism of a spa before choosing that place to service your relaxation or chronic pain needs. In a genuine spa, the staff should be well dressed and usually wearing a clean and sanitary uniform. In addition, the spa’s lobby and massage rooms should be well kept and organized with informative pamphlets and magazines. There might even be therapeutic or medicinal products for sale. However, these products should focus on healing rather than its aphrodisiac-like properties. Legitimate spas also take a variety of payment methods including cash or debit and credit cards. If the business that you find yourself in is always cash-only, you may want to high tail it out of there.

Are the spa employees “therapists” or “the girls”?

It is also important to consider the way that a spa treats its employees. The employees should all be licensed therapists with the state in which they are practicing. Most legitimate spa owners are proud of their employees’ accolades and will display them prominently for customers to see. If your chosen place of relaxation can’t provide proof of your therapist’s licensing there might be a problem. In addition, massage therapists are highly trained and should be able to answer your questions about your ailments intelligently and with confidence. If your “masseuse” cannot answer basic questions about the human body and mobility, you might want to reconsider your choice of “therapist”.

What is LED Photon Therapy?

LED Photon Therapy, also known as color light therapy, is a revolutionary skin care technique that uses UV-free LED lights to boost collagen generation. This skin care technique was first developed by NASA to help plants grow in space, and LED Photon Therapy has also been used to speed up the healing process for injured Navy Seals. According to a Nasa News article, “this special lighting technology helps hard-to-heal wounds, such as diabetic skin ulcers, serious burns, and severe oral sores caused by chemotherapy and radiation.”

This revolutionary light therapy works by focusing various light colors on the skin to facilitate different regenerative properties. Amber light stimulates collagen and elastin growth, while red light penetrates deep to tighten the skin and reduce inflammation. LED Phonton therapy often uses two other lights: blue to destroy acne-causing bacteria, and infrared to accelerate skin recovery.

How can LED Photon Therapy help me?

LED Photon Therapy can be used to treat a multitude of illnesses, but it can also have esthetic applications. A licensed Esthetician can use LED Photon Therapy to treat many different skin conditions. This therapy can serve the following functions and more:

  • Clear, lighten, smooth the skin
  • Firm and enhance skin texture
  • Reduce and prevent wrinkles, helps fight fatty areas
  • Improve skin elasticity
  • Minimize Pores
  • Balance skin tone
  • Enhance circulation 
  • Inhibit the formation of melanin pigment
  • Fight acne
  • Accelerate blood circulation

However, according to Dr. R. Glen Calderhead, a leading expert in phototherapy and photosurgery, “LED-LLLT (Light Emitting Diode-Low Level Light Therapy) is a safe and effective stand-alone therapy for patients who are prepared to wait until the final effect is perceived.” In other words, studies and real word experiences support the validity of LED Photon Therapy, but clients will not see massive results overnight.

What else should I know about LED Photon Therapy and skin care?

Maintaining a good skin care regimen is a great way to increase self esteem and practice self care. Sometimes, regular skin care routine activities like washing, exfoliating, and moisturizing don’t quite cut it anymore. LED Photon Therapy is a great way to take your skin care to the next level.

If you have questions about LED Photon Therapy or any other esthetic services, contact us! The Spa’ah has a licensed Esthetician on staff. Visit us at our location in Conway, Arkansas to find out how to schedule a consultation!
