What You Missed In 2017

Future without Pharmaceuticals? CBD Takes On Big Pharma

Former UFC champion Bass Rutten knows pain. As a former mixed martial arts fighter he’s participated in a ruthless bloodsport that requires rigorous and intense training. He’s seen the toll that injuries from training and fights can take on athletes. Worse, he’s seen how constant pain can lead to opioid addiction – destroying careers, families, and lives. Recently, Rutten spoke out about how CBD is the new healthy alternative to painkillers.

If you care about your body, consider CBD. It’s known to have a calming effect, relieve pain, and be completely non-addictive. Pharmaceutical pain killers can relieve pain in the short term, but they also wreck serious havoc on your stomach and liver. CBD is the opposite and provides anti-inflammatory benefits while relieving pain.

This year we’re seeing health professionals finally begin to promote the benefits of CBD.  The New England Journal of Medicine just released a peer-reviewed study proving that CBD is real medicine and reduces seizures in children. 43 percent of patients suffering from Dravet Syndrome treated with CBD had their number of seizures cut in half or more. This is just the beginning. Why use expensive and potentially addictive pharmaceuticals to treat pain when a natural cure like CBD exists?

Stay Hydrated on the Cheap

Tumblers are one of the most popular and versatile cups on the market right now. They keep your ice frozen up to 72 hours and your coffee piping hot up to 6 hours. With a 18/8 stainless steel body, the Tumbler keeps your drink’s temperature no matter how much beating the cup takes. Whether you’re a morning coffee or a smoothie drinker, you need a Tumbler in your life.

The Wonder Drug in Your Kitchen 



Turmeric is 2017’s “superfood” that wellness professionals claim will cure all ailments, revitalize our bodies, and change our lives. Although, turmeric is not so new – Western culture is just starting to catch on. Turmeric is now seeing a resurgence in the US, but has been used medicinally for over 4,000 years in Eastern Culture. Ayurveda, the ancient Indian practice of natural healing, has used turmeric since around 500 BCE to treat medical conditions and injuries.

A compound of turmeric, curcumin, is a healing agent that gives turmeric its vibrant golden color.  Curcumin has anti-inflammation properties that rival ibuprofen without the nasty toxic effects over-the-counter drugs have on the body. Evidence is beginning to mount showing that curcumin provides extraordinary benefits to the body and may prevent Alzheimer’s diseases and relieve arthritis symptoms. There are over 700 studies on curcumin and cancer, showing that its comparable to pharmaceuticals in its effectiveness against cancers of the colon, breast, esophagus, prostate, and liver.

Curcumin can protect healthy cells from cancer causing agents and aid the body in destroying these cells. Turmeric still needs more research to verify all these claims, but because of the countless benefits it can provide, I recommend making 2017 the year you incorporate turmeric into your diet.

  1. I ordered the oil and the cream it came without directions. I don’t know how much to use on myself or my dog. I give it to my dog before he goes to vet or groomers. Keeps him calm but doesn’t sedate him. It’s great. But wish I had some kind of directions to go by.
