What is pill shaming?
Let’s say you’ve finally decided to talk with your doctor about what you’re experiencing.
You’re even open to taking medication to help rebalance your brain’s chemistry.
Then a friend tells you that you don’t need pills. You just need to work out more, or eat better, or spend a bit of time meditating.
This is a form of pill shaming.
Pill shaming occurs when someone expresses negative opinions or disdain when you tell them you’re using medication to treat a mental health issue.
They assume — wrongly — that taking medication signifies weakness of character or an inability to work through tough times.
A 2015 study found that only 50 percent of people diagnosed with schizophrenia actually followed their treatment regimen and took medication as it’s prescribed to them.
Another study, this one from 2016, found that between 10 and 60 percent of patients didn‘t take their antidepressant medications regularly.
In both studies, the reasons people gave for not taking medicine varied — from physical to emotional, financial to forgetfulness. “Treatment adherence to medication is one of the most difficult challenges for people who have a mental illness,” Colleen Koncilja, a licensed clinical social worker with a private therapy practice in Illinois, told Healthline.
If you have a mental issue or a health issue please make sure that you’re taking the proper medication consistently. Don’t feel ashamed for being on medication.

The article link below discusses THC & Pain.
BUT WHAT ABOUT CBD & PAIN? Yes, it can behave similar, according to one man’s comments (at the bottom of article).
It is so important to get this info out there so individuals learn how to help themselves properly—especially when they are out of hope.
Read the article here: http://profofpot.com/cannabis-can-worsen-pain/
“Study #1 : The relationship between dose & pain relief:
The low THC dose did not affect pain scores.
The THC dose was probably too low to be active.
The medium THC dose lowered pain scores,
demonstrating the analgesic effects of cannabis.
The high THC dose significantly increased pain scores.
😯”And please, be sure to start with the best quality FIRST—that way you can be sure it wasn’t the brand that caused a side effect—that is far too common. It is estimated 70% of what’s on the open market is dirty, impure and contaminated with heavy metals, pesticides, solvents, etc. Lots of vague labels out there that you should not risk your health on. And the dose they claim on the label can be way off too – even from bottle to bottle! ...

One out of eight children suffers from an anxiety disorder. While many will outgrow this with age, 41% will have lingering issues. As children age into young adults, anxiety becomes more prevalent with 25% of teens age 13-18 suffering from a form of mild to moderate anxiety. This leaves schools with much to overcome as they try to address the growing mental health needs of their students across the country.

Ginger Bath: .
Ginger Bath is an incredible all natural detox and regulator of blood flow. Ginger Bath works much like a sauna or 'fever bath', causing you to sweat and thus works amazingly to rid your body of harmful toxins. Simply add this bath to lukewarm water (not hot.. the ginger will take care of the heat for you) and soak. .
You will experience sweating for around 15-30 mins after you leave your bath. This is normal and is simply your body ridding itself of toxins and regulating your blood flow. .
The salts in our house blend will relax your tired & sore muscles.

Fake it Till You Make it.......WRONG!!
Oh so wrong to have this mentality.
When you start to believe and living this method, faking it, you are losing yourself.
How about we honor ourselves, until we build and grow into the person that deserves and is ready to start living the life we want.
Be true to who you are.
Embrace where you are and where you want to be.
All by giving gratitude for the lessons you are learning and the person you are becoming.
There is nothing fake about that.
Live in your truth, embrace your purpose and develop thy self.
Comment with a ❤️ if you are going to start libing in your truth and stop faking it till you make it
Hibiscus and rose hip tea blended with oat milk, honey, and fresh strawberries 🌹 .
I was getting a little tired of my usual echinacea & ginger and turned to this pretty lil concoction for an immune boost. The taste kind of reminded me of strawberry Emergen-C but a looottt better & without any of that non-recyclable plastic nonsense 🍓🍓
This oil holds a special place in my heart. My postpartum experience threw me for a loop and I clung to this blend for dear life as I navigated the first year of motherhood. Hell… let’s get real, I still reach for it regularly! 🤪 It’s my go to for #MomGuilt because even though we know it shouldn’t, that nasty little gremlin in our heads can seem to creep in and tear us apart. •
This blend of tree and herb oils is known for its support in soothing feelings of anger and guilt, while promoting feelings of love and forgiveness by applying it to our wrists, the back of our necks, over the heart area, and/or the bottom of our feet. •
Personally, It was one of my favorite oils from the Emotional Aromatherapy Collection, which was the kit that I purchased at the beginning of my essential oil journey. Little did I know this very oil was going to be the start of my emotional and spiritual healing journey. (Leave a comment if you want to know more about this experience, it was a ride!) •

Here are two viewpoints when comparing CBD and Copaiba.
In support of CBD:
CBD has 80-100 cannabinoids
Exposed most CBD facts but missed some Copaiba facts
In support of Copaiba:
1. Says Copaiba is fully legal implying that CBD is not. That is not true.
2. Says Copaiba is cheaper than CBD oil. Their information is very wrong. The new CBD that CTFO sells is much cheaper than Young Living or any other high quality Copaiba.
3. Says Copaiba is safer (less side effects). Not true AT ALL:
Copaiba balsam can cause side effects such as stomach pains, vomiting, diarrhea, rash, tremor, groin pain, and sleeplessness (insomnia). When used on the skin, it can cause redness, itching, and a rash that might leave brown spots after healing.
GOOGLE BENEFITS / SIDE EFFECTS & compare:
* Non-CBD supplements that claim to do the same as CBD
There is NO COMPARISON—at all. But some say COPAIBA is better. Not True. Some say their expensive non-CBD supplements will do the same as CBD. Not True. They don’t contain 80-100 cannabinoids. •••Judge for yourself. Make informed decisions when it comes to your health..

Once you know what discoveries have been made, then you need to understand it is a very corrupt market. FACT: In a study of 84 CBD products sold by 31 companies online, blind testing found that only about 31 percent of them contained the amount of CBD listed on the label.
CTFO CBD Products are manufactured under Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP). The GMP symbol is listed on all our labels. Our CBD is made from NON-GMO, PESTICIDE FREE, CO2 Extracted Hemp Oil using only organic ingredients.
Our products are manufactured in a cruelty-free facility. No animal testing or abuse is utilized. This is a big issue, especially in the skin care industry.
We use only the best, highest quality, purest organic Hemp and we don’t use any high heat processing that reduces the potency or efficacy of the CBD.
GMP makes supplement manufacturers responsible for adhering to a specific set of manufacturing processes, safety procedures, and packaging standards to ensure that dietary supplement labels are truthful and that actual dietary supplement contents match the contents on the Supplement Facts label.
With CTFO CBD oil, you KNOW what you are taking.
