My mother had a health scare not too long ago. Her heart started beating at an irregular interval and she thought she was having a heart attack. I rushed her to the hospital and everything turned out to be fine. It was a big time scare for her though. Now my mother is taking matters into her own hands to be healthy. Rather than just do a fad diet and work out, she is looking into being more holistically inclined. That means her mental, physical and spiritual self all are being taken care of. My mother has seriously cut down on the amount of work she does to lower her stress levels. She also is swimming, biking, kayaking and going for walks throughout the week to cut weight and be healthy. She has changed to being a vegan and only buys the freshest foods. Another change is that my mother has introduced CBD into her diet. CBD is the part of the cannabis plant that is used for medical marijuana patients. It doesn’t get you high, it provides relief from anxiety, depression, sleeping issues, etc. There is a CBD store near me that my mother frequents a lot. She really has gotten into cooking with cannabis. She says it relaxes her and the CBD products really help her sleep at night. She has all sorts of flavored oils, butters and spices that have CBD in them. Apparently it helps her sleep like a baby. My mother wants to join me on this holistic approach to her life. I am not sure I am ready to give up red meat.
