    The Superior Six

    1. Sichuan Teasel Root (Dipsacus asperoides):    In China, Sichuan is named Xu Duan and translates to, restore what is broken. The sichuan teasel root has been used historically to tonify the liver and kidneys, promote blood circulation, and strengthen the bones and tendons.

    2. Dang Shen Root:    The dang shen root is a traditional Qi tonic and is notorious for offering the numerous therapeutic benefits ginseng offers. It is widely known for its energy, mood enhancing, and restorative support. When combined with astragalus, dang shen root is called The King of Combinations.

    3. Astragalus Root (Astragalus membranaceus):  In Chinese, Huangi Qi translates to Yellow Leader. This is due the yellow color of the root and it also being considered the leader of tonic herbs in traditional chinese medicine.
    4. White Peony / Bai Shao Yao root:    Bai Shao Yao root is widely cultivated throughout China for its numerous health benefits.

    5. Propolis:   In Greek, the name translates to Defense of the City, referencing its use in maintaining the integrity of the hive. Propolis is used by bees to repair and protect their hive. Typically, propolis is comprised of resin (50%), which is composed of flavonoids and related phenolic acids, generally called as the polyphenolic fraction, waxes (30%), essential oil (10%), pollen (5%), and other organic compounds (5%). However, this chemical composition may change according to the plant source and season; hence, quality sourcing of propolis is important

    6. Bitter Orange Peel (Citrus aurantium):     Bitter orange is grown in various varieties throughout the country. The Citrus aurantium variation is native to southern Vietnam.

     

    Honey Colony Superior CBD Oil review from mini2z for Chronic Illness Bloggers

    Label of Superior CBD from Honey Colony

     

    I received this a few weeks ago and I read it as to take the drops altogether so I decided bedtime was best for me.  I learned later that I could take it three times a day as four drops three times a day.  The first night, oh my, it is a weird taste.  You need to leave it under your tongue for the best effectiveness.  As the nights progressed, I was able to take the drops with no issue with the taste.  As I’m writing, I am realizing that my night time pain has decreased since I’ve been using the Honey Colony.  I’ve been getting a searing pain in my back and hips and I can honestly say that the CBD Oil has helped my pain.  It’s natural, made with Non-GMO, certified organic botanicals
    Soil used to grow cannabis is free of pesticides, herbicides, or artificial fertilizers.  At this point in my illness and health, I’m trying to keep food as natural and healthy.

    CONS:

    • the label is so tiny writing that even with my glasses off I have a hard time reading it.
    • The taste but you can actually get used to it.  Although, my daughter has left the room twice when I took it because it was, “oh my god you’re going to oh my put that in your mouth?”  Yeah, teen girls are a wee bet dramatic.
    • It is only available in the US (all 50 states), Germany, Italy, Spain, Israel, Australia and the UK.  You need to check that you’re able to get it shipped to you!
    • Price:  It’s $92.55 for a single bottle and a 3-pack is $262.65 which is currently a sale price.
    • CBD and Drug Tests:  Unfortunately, it is possible for CBD to result in a positive for THC— much like eating a poppy seed bagel can cause a positive for opiates depending on the type of test. Our products contain .03% THC, well below the federal limit of .3%, but you should use discretion if planning to be tested.  Sourced from Honey Colony

    PROS:

    • It’s completely botanical
    • Cannabidiol (CBD) is extracted from the Cannabis plant and has no euphoric properties whatsoever.  It does NOT make you HIGH or funny feeling.  From Honey Colony:  Due to our CBD containing .03% THC, the legal amount of THC and only the potent health support without the psychoactive effects.
    • It has a shelf life of 2-3 years and no refrigeration needed!
    • It’s not an OIL but instead it’s the only water soluble CBD in the market currently.
    • The. Superior Six: Sichuan Teasel Root, Dang Shen Root, Astragalus Root, White Peony / Bai Shao Yao root, Propolis,
      Bitter Orange Pee they all have SO many ingredients that are great for your health!

    I actually find that for me the benefits outweigh the cons because ANYTHING that helps my searing pain due to my lupus SLE and fibromyalgia is just AMAZING in my book!

    Thursday Thoughts

    Thursday Thoughts I link up with Jennifer at Ramblings of a Suburban mom:

    This Thursday has me thinking;

    • Wow, I’m a member of Chronic Illness Bloggers and I’ve had my first post shared through the network.  I’ve had tweets re-tweeted and it’s pretty cool for a little blogger like me.

    • It’s Thursday and I’m wondering how that happened?

    • I’m so thankful to my family for all the support and especially my husband.  Even with me having my shots on Tuesday afternoon and forgetting it was already time for them.  My hubby hurt his foot and we went to urgent care, x-rays and back home. Thankfully we had crutches in the house from all my falls.  His foot isn’t broken but we’re not quite sure what’s wrong.

    • Is it bad that I’m actually looking for my Gastroenterologist appointment next week? How bad it is when you want someone to figure out why you’re constantly nauseous and have stomach pain and none of your other doctors have an answer other than it’s lupus or fibromyalgia related…

    •  I’m trying to get one of my kidlets to go to the grocery store.  Seriously, they eat the food too, they should help out…

    How are you?

    Hi, how are you?  How do you answer this?  Honestly? Say good or okay?  Taking it day by day?  Seriously what answer do people want to hear?

    I had occasion to go to an event with my kidlets on Friday night to celebrate 30 years of Irish dance in the city.  My kidlets were there to see their old friends, teachers and parents that they spent so much time with for 11 years for my son and 14 years for my daughter. I was an Irish Dance mom but we use the word MAID or Mother’s Addicted to Irish Dance and I was on the executive of the booster club for 9 of those years. I almost backed out of not going because it’s been such a bad go of it but I started to get ready and committed myself to go. I know my husband was happy I went and that I’d get to see my friends.

     

    Kidlets and me 

     
    So here comes the, Hi How Are You?  How did I answer?  So many ways…

    • I’m good (total lie)

    • I’m okay (I was in the beginning)

    • Day by Day (it how I live now)

    • Anxious (but then I’d explain because “I don’t LOOK sick”)

    A lot of the people I saw had no idea I’ve been sick and off work for over a year.  Lupus and Fibromyalgia have kicked my ass more than I remember Hashimoto’s ever did.  Or I’m not remembering because I had small children.  I do know and remember towards the end of my daughter’s dance career I wasn’t able to do as much as I once did and I upset her with missing performances and events that I never would have missed but I was home in bed.  We didn’t know at the time what was wrong but the last few years was the lupus creeping into my body and taking its hold.

    I did answer lots of questions because I was originally sick when the diabetes took hold but I still think that the lupus has been here since then.  I had a bug and just never got better, my sugars went out of whack and the almost three years of every bug and constant fevers and flu like symptoms continued.

    To have a few hours out with my kidlets, enjoying some wonderful Celtic music and watching the Ardán Academy Irish dancers is always nice.  The dessert table was pretty awesome too.  There was coffee but no tea?  A cèilidh (gathering) should always have tea along with the beer and whiskey!

    Where am I today?  Two days after the few hours out?  I’m in bed?  Did I know that I’d use up today’s spoons yesterday by going out?  Yes but it was worth it.

    How am I?  I take it day by day because my invisible illnesses have kicked my ass.  I really want to answer honestly but people look at me in shock, surprise, befuddled, confused, so I really just answer I’m Okay.

    So how are you?
