Interview with Dominyka: Friendship Between Tibetan and Western Medicine

Here at Biomedicanna, we believe that the most remarkable journeys start with taking the smallest steps. Therefore, success in life begins with us and our relationship with our surroundings. We dedicated an entire month of February to encourage everyone to love ourselves and others so that each of us will be able to thrive, feel the best and succeed in every task we do. This month we will invite you to be more attentive to your own needs and build healthy relationships with your own body and the people you care about the most. Stay safe and authentic to yourself!  

--

Let’s start the last month of the winter season from our chat with Dominyka. Dominyka Mikstaite is successfully steering her brand artumè, which combines healing methods and practices from both Tibetan and Western Medicine to help people prevent the occurrence of diseases and preserve and nurture longevity and inner happiness. Thanks to Dominyka’s therapy sessions and body procedures, many people have already discovered the harmony of their thoughts and body.

-Dominyka, tell us a bit about yourself and your way of life.

-Several years ago, I started my life project, which is called artumè. I provide direct help to people daily, helping them balance their lives as I have once been taught by Tibetan medicine and its elder practitioners. Guided by Buddhism's wisdom, I listen to what people themselves and their bodies say to me, I take care of them and provide a complex therapy and self-care session. I talk with them about nutritional and psychical procedures, external and emotional practices, which apply to specific personality types and fit their needs. Regardless of each case, I adopt a holistic approach and seek the balance of body, mind, and spirit, but the harmony can only be reached when the person itself wants to improve its wellbeing. 

However, Tibetan medicine is only one side of the coin as in my everyday life I combine such a way of thinking with Western medicine practices. Not long ago, I joined the Lithuanian Association of Massage Therapists. Also, I am about to finish learning how to do medical massages to help rehabilitation patients and those who have not yet heard any medical diagnoses and want to improve their life quality and find their inner peace as the current situation in our country could be majorly improved. I believe that we all are connected and influence each other's decisions and both traditions help me share those clean and intelligent thoughts, that knowledge that runs through me and help people reach their harmony.

-It’s incredible to hear you talk this passionately but, correct me if I am wrong, all this knowledge and passion did not come in the blink of an eye, or it did?

-Oh, definitely! During my childhood years, I was that type of kid who enjoys spending time in nature, feeling the grass and seeing, hearing all the animals. I still call my younger self a gooseberries’ kid - it now seems that I spent all those years wandering in the forests and through meadows. Sadly, once I reached my teen years, the desire to be in the city with other people defeated nature, and I quickly forgot who I was at that time. I was not myself; I did not know who I wanted to be; I was not able to distinguish myself from the others, nor I was able to truly listen to what my body and mind have to say and even if I heard them, I was ignoring all those alert messages – those were dark times for me. At this challenging time, I discovered books about the human subconscious, I was amazed by what I read, but I held all those impulses and thoughts for myself not daring to share with anyone else especially my friends.

‘What could be better than to live surrounded by nature, wake up in the morning from the chirping of birds, after a sweet sleep drink a glass of warm water and humbly go for a swim in the lake or river, all at 5 o’clock in the morning?’

After finishing high school, I moved to the capital city to study, - difficulties hit me once again; only this time, they were more powerful and affected me more deeply. I soon developed specific symptoms that led to me being diagnosed with mental disorders. Of course, I tried to help myself by turning to Western medicine practices, but they were not much of a help and only made me feel better for a short time. Pills and medicine helped me, but I felt like I was missing something – I missed out conversations and could not freely talk about what I am going through at that time. Those mental issues are even harder to overcome for young persons who still have not yet figured themselves out if they have no one to talk to freely. Therefore, I started asking myself what was wrong, why those symptoms left that much of a footprint on my personality and wellbeing. I started digging deeper and found out about Buddhism, Tibetan medicine, and holistic approach towards a human being which made me realize that Western medicine is beneficial, yet it is not enough. 

-Were those experiences the main reason you now have a different relationship with yourself and happier every day?

- Well, yes. Buddhism and Tibetan medicine encourage everyone to find their law of causes and consequences – it means finding reasons why you experience something and improving the situation by removing those triggers from the equation. It involves being close to, listening to and loving yourself. I think that loving yourself has many different components but only two phases or expressions, one which resonates with mom loving her kids. Another one is something equal to dad teaching his kids necessary life skills. The 'mommy love' means altruistically accepting your true self no matter what – just like the mother accepts the children, and unconditionally loves them. The 'daddy love' means being able to look for self-favourable solutions, ability to adapt and live life to the fullest. 

Loving yourself means that the two inseparable – creative and logical – potentials teach you how to listen to your body, feelings, subsequent thoughts, and emotions. When one of them is lost or too powerful, we lose the balance, harmony, and it seems like everything we have created till now is falling apart. Likewise, we do not need to hold them too tightly in our clenched fists – we need to ask ourselves what those potentials are trying to tell us. Usually, they reveal unpleasant emotions and help us understand that acknowledging them is the first step towards solving them; therefore, they are paving our way towards a pleasant, joyful and healthy life for us. 

-How loving yourself is different from loving others, creating and maintaining a healthy relationship with them?

-Loving others is mostly influenced by loving yourself. When we listen to ourselves, improve on various value, self-love, and harmony levels, we naturally grow those love fruits and can share them with others, with people who need them. In any case, we strongly influence each other; however, the most important thing is to purify those aspects yourself first. Loving others is far less intimate than loving yourself, but the trick here is to leave enough room for the other person and ourselves to grow and make personal decisions. 

-Do the same words apply and describe your relationship with the people you help?

-Yes, if they would not, I probably would not even be here. artumè means being close to others and ourselves first; therefore, my lifestyle is intertwined with my professional path. Even though helping others means being responsible, I love to live a vibrant life and experience some positive changes from time to time. I love not having to count my life ‘Monday-to-Friday’. I am happy I once seek complicated answers as they allowed me to connect with others. All people that one moment or another was in my path have created me as I am today. 

When I help others create themselves, I give my all and leave egoistic emotions behind. There is a person in front of me who is lost – with my hands, I help them find the right places for different pieces of their soul, mind, and body. I help them feel safe; I thank them for trusting me to lead them into an intimate journey called self-acceptance, love, health, happiness. I once experienced the same emotions, and tried to answer the same questions they are dealing with today – as I have a right to choose, I choose to give others pleasure, leading to deep self-knowledge. I am not planning to stop my mission or suppress my passion; I hear my clients saying those body procedures have a calming effect on them, lead them to harmonious life, and create a safe space to fall back to themselves. It would be unwise to stop, so the only way is to go forward.

-Tell us, what methods did you once use to help yourself which you use now to help others?

-I can only help the other person if he or she is willing to experience some changes. At first, I ask the person I will consult to make sure they have at least several hours of free time and do not rush anywhere as those factors can put an entire process at risk of failure. Once we met in person or online, we drink herbal tea – from natural dried herbs I picked myself – and talk about their feelings, emotions, and the signals their body is sending them. After that, we begin more serious work with a person’s body and massage muscles. One like to call it massage, for others, it is a body procedure, but for me, that is a general re-alignment of the whole organism. 

After the therapy, me and a person I just helped stay to discuss new, emerging emotions and feelings. I also give them some herbal teas, hydrolats and phytol to use at home – when smells and tastes person experienced during the therapy, visits him or her at home. It allows them to rewind the time and go back to that exact moment even if I am not beside them.

-What are the most important tips you give to the people you help? Can you share them with our readers?

-I am one of those people who must try everything themselves before recommending it to others. Even though my dynamic personality does not allow me to stick to the same practices for long periods, some wellbeing rules must never be changed by anyone. Nature, sun and water are those three things that helped people improve their energy levels and general wellbeing for ages. However, one of the most constant nature’s principles is that nature cannot be called constant. Both Western and Tibetan medicine traditions say that seasons are critical for us to ensure health. We must be aware of seasonal changes and change our everyday practices accordingly. 

As we live in a colder climate, we need to consume fatter and warmer foods, which would generate more energy and not let us get cold. Our all meals must be followed by a glass of warm water, to which we may add some honey or ginger – this mix allows us to maintain a healthier and more balanced metabolite system, stomach especially. Various beverages also help to increase our memory and brain functions. 

Besides, during the winter season, we lack sunshine; thus, we lack vitamin D, we get tired more quickly and experience some severe mood swings. Sauna and massages with warm oil work together perfectly to relax and calm the central nervous system, improve the immune system and ensure that all other organs and bodily systems work continuously and up to speed. Of course, do not forget to dress for the weather and wear your scarf, hat, mittens, and warm socks during winter. 

Nature is one of the most significant additions – even the shortest walk in a park improves health as it improves cardiovascular and lymphatic systems. Being in nature allows us to breathe more freely and supplies the brain with more oxygen; therefore, after spending our time in the fresh air, we feel relaxed and have plenty of great ideas.

We must also not forget to sleep! Getting around ten hours of sleep is useless if we sleep at the wrong time; each night from 10 p.m. to 2 a.m. is the best time to sleep as it is when the hormones responsible for our growth regenerate. Try meeting your sleeping schedule by getting around eight hours of sleep – you will instantly feel better, stronger, less stressed, and have more energy to take care of ourselves and the others.

-Thank you, we are more than glad that you agreed to share your experiences and knowledge with our readers. 


Brace yourself – autumn viruses are coming!

Perhaps the most beautiful time of the year is just around the corner. Autumn will reward us with nature adorned with all colours, falling leaves, and the smell of freshly baked cinnamon apple pie. As we try to enjoy the last bits of sun and warmth and high temperatures, our plans are disrupted every year by runny noses, nasty coughing, and headaches, which are the most common signs of autumn viruses. How to avoid catching a cold? How to fight off seasonal viruses? How the immune system works and protects us? How to prepare for autumn diseases? Today we will answer these and many other questions – get ready!

Autumn viruses: what are we dealing with?

Seasonal infections and viruses are nothing new as we are more than used to call the upcoming season a ‘flu season.’ The vast majority of seasonal diseases such as cold are linked to being viral and easy to catch from another person, who already complains about a sore throat, coughing, runny nose, and fever. The flu, for example, is an infectious disease caused by a virus attacking one’s immune system as it is compromised.

autumn viruses

As symptoms are common for many different seasonal sicknesses, family doctors, practitioners, research performing doctors, and other professionals distinguish a fairly clear timeline suitable for most cases. According to them, cold symptoms such as a stuffy nose, discomfort, sneezing, fever, and body aches take one to three days to peak, and the next days are the worst. Even though a cold usually ends by day ten, it is contagious throughout the whole period of being sick.

Various seasonal sicknesses can affect not only our respiratory system but the whole organism: skin, muscles, internal organs, metabolism, etc. Unnoticed or untreated sicknesses can cause great discomfort as it takes significantly more time to fully recover because our bodies are already too weak at that time as we start using medication or visit the professional doctors.

Our hero – the immune system!

It is easy and quick to start this unpleasant trend of being sick; however, it takes a lot of time and effort to fight those autumn viruses off for good. It’s the immune system that does all of the hard work protecting us every day of the year and especially during the autumn. So, what exactly is the immune system?

autumn

The immune system guards our bodies against unwanted threats such as viruses, bacteria, toxins, and infections. It does not mean that you will never be sick if your immune system is indestructible - the immune system guarantees that one tiny virus that gets into your body will not grow to a massive extent and become fatal. However, it is easy to know whether one’s immune system is working as high body temperatures and swelling indicates it.

The immune system depends on billions and billions of defensive white blood cells also known as leukocytes. As they are traveling throughout our cardiovascular system they screen, firstly, our blood for threats, together with other tissues and organs. Once the leukocytes detect invaders, our immune system starts operating and releases special proteins – antibodies, which fight those unwanted and harmful substances.

There are many different threats to one’s body, so the immune system must be equally adaptable to be able to defend one’s organism in any case. The immune system usually develops a long-term immunity, which means that one store information about the attackers and will know next time how to deal with it quicker than the last time.

Vitamins to prepare for autumn diseases!

There are many ways to strengthen the immune system – it’s easy to help your organism to protect yourself and prepare for autumn viruses season once you know what you need. We may be making a big mistake if we fill our bodies with unnecessary substances as excess is as bad as scarcity. Plenty of foods are rich in various vitamins and nutrients that complement our organisms, but we often are not aware of their existence and do not know how useful they are. Let’s expand our knowledge of vitamins that benefit our immune systems!

Everyone must have heard about vitamin C as its intake is one of the greatest ways to boost one’s immune system. Our organisms do not produce or store vitamin C for long periods, so we must ensure a daily intake of vitamin C as they stimulate the generation of white blood cells.

Vitamin E helps our immune system to fight off various infections and viruses; it positively affects the immune system’s cells and makes them more productive. However, numerous studies have shown that the best results are achieved when vitamin E is taken together with vitamin C.

Vitamin B6 supports biochemical reactions, and together with other vitamins from group B, they also help turn food into energy, thus, providing our bodies with necessary nutrients. Vitamin B6 is considered to be that one significant substance that benefits many different parts of our bodies; however, as our bodies do not produce, we need to obtain it from our everyday diets and supplements.

Vitamin D is essential for an effective immune system’s response. Low levels of this vitamin are linked with frequent illnesses and infections, so seasonal cold and flu can be prevented once ensuring sufficient amounts of vitamin D in our bodies. As we can acquire vitamin D from being in the sunlight, now it is the best time to go outside, spend some time tanning, and prepare for autumn diseases in a fun and easy way!

Even though beta-glucans are not vitamins but fibers, their enhancing abilities does just that. Beta-glucans strengthen the immune system, reduces symptoms of fever, and lowers the chances of getting a sometimes-fatal seasonal infection. They also ensure the smooth functioning of our bodies and feature specific anti-inflammatory properties, thus shortening the period of being sick. As beta-glucans are a natural way to improve one’s overall health and well-being, one must include beta-gluten-rich foods into a diet.

People often say that you should think about everything in advance to achieve the best results sometime later. Although the immune system forms throughout our whole lives, today is the day to prepare for autumn viruses season! Stay tuned as more tips to survive the autumn disaster follow next week.

Attention! Immune system prepares for fight!

The human body is a vulnerable thing: it requires special care and protection not only during the abnormal summer heats but also during freezing winter frosts and other dangers. Let’s admit, it is easy to prepare for and fight off objects and feels that one can see or sense; however, such a process gets way trickier when you must challenge things that are invisible to a naked eye - pathogens. It’s our immune system that does all of the hard work protecting us from dangerous viruses and bacteria, although investing in strengthening it always pays off.

What’s the immune system?

It is easier to think about the immune system as really high and steep stone walls surrounding the castle – the human body. As hostile persons – pathogens from viruses and bacteria – try to enter the castle, they are immediately blocked by strong and invincible walls. However, as time goes by and the walls are exposed to changing weather conditions, they are likely to collapse if unsupervised or show weaknesses, thus needing constant strengthening works and additions.

One immune system – plenty of immunities

According to immunology scientists, in the medical world, the body’s immune system is distinguished in several different segments. All people are brought into this world having innate immunity – pre-programmed body cells that identify harmful substances in a matter of seconds and fight them; it’s the equivalent of using walls for protection that were already there. The adaptive immune system is a complete opposite of innate immunity - it’s a more advanced way to beat pathogens as it can remember them by storing information in itself on how to do it; it reminds building a new wall around the castle.

The adaptive immunity is further subdivided into natural passive and active, and artificial active and passive immunity, which all have contrasting acquiring processes. Natural-passive immunity refers to pregnancy months as a fetus receives antibodies to fight pathogens through the placenta or when nursing. Natural-active immunity forms once the person is done dealing with a live pathogen and forms immunological memory of such a process.

Artificial-passive immunity includes transferring one person’s blood to another, thus forcing one’s cells to share information on how to fight the pathogens to other’s cells. Artificial-active immunity stands for vaccination, after which antigens simulate a possible response to a small number of pathogens, and later knows how to destroy the disease as a whole. However, it doesn’t matter which type of immunity guards your body’s castle - it matters that you reinforce the complete picture of defending walls in time!

What happens once the immune system fails?

If the walls defending the castle fail to stop intruders, the castle itself becomes weak and damaged; immunology scientists divide such a situation into several categories depending on how the body deals with attackers – pathogens:

•           autoimmunity disorder happens when the body’s immune system isn’t capable of distinguishing positive cells from destroyable bad ones and decides to attack both;

•           hypersensitivity is a smart name for the body’s immune system destroying its own harmless cells instead of faulty invader ones;

•           immunodeficiency occurs when the body’s immune system loses its capability to fight or gets compromised by short-term events. Even though some of the cases of immunodeficiency is inherited, modern-day problems - alcoholism, obesity, and drug use - determine the largest amount of overall cases.

Tips on how to strengthen the immune system

Most of the time, the body’s immune system is strong enough to produce antigens and destroy pathogens without harming the actual person. However, as immune systems get weaker and start to struggle to fulfill its task, some immunity-strengthening methods and means are not optional but obligatory.

An average human spends about one-third of a lifetime sleeping – roughly 25 years, so anywhere from 7 to 9 hours every night. As regular sleep routine and quality rest maintain physical and mental well-being, it adds up to strengthening the immune system as well. We advise everyone to re-check their sleeping schedules and ensure a clean, relaxing, and stress-free sleeping environment.

As humans get all the energy needed to support the smooth working of the body from the nutrients, the only way to get them is through consuming healthy foods. Nutritionists advise people to eat a diet that would include foods from every group of the food pyramid. That means mostly eating grains and cereals following by various fruits and vegetables, not forgetting meats and dairy, but abstaining from eating lots of fats and sugars. It is also necessary to stay hydrated as water carries oxygen to one’s body cells and removes toxins from the body.

Scientists agree that about 30 to 60 minutes of exercise – walking, running, swimming, etc. - a day improves the body’s immune system and its ability to fight pathogens from viruses, germs, and bacteria. As it helps maintain healthy body weight and avoid obesity, regular and properly performed exercises adds up to both physical and mental health. Fitness experts also suggest showering under cold water or having an ice bath once in a while as it helps the immune system to fight off any remaining unwanted substances out from the body.

We are educated about the cost of harmful habits and addictions every step of the way; however, scientists recently found out that there are more than quarter-billion people dependent on alcohol in the world. No matter the addiction – alcohol, smoking, or drugs, such practices leaves permanent damage not only on the outside of the body but internally. As it weakens organs to perform their functions, prolonged periods of untreated addiction may result in autoimmunity problems.

One of the easiest ways to improve the immune system is to buy pharmaceutical preparations; however, as there is plenty of variety of vitamins and pills, one can do more damage to the immune system rather than good. As people all around the world pay more attention to what kind of medicine they put into their bodies, a lot of them choose homeopathic and time-proven remedies. There is a saying that nature provides humans with everything it needs, so drinking herbal teas is a logical way to strengthen the immune system, but make sure you know what you are about to consume beforehand!

There is one particular type of means to improve the strength of the immune system, which is only gaining popularity. CBD oil and other products are considered the new black as it has valuable anti-inflammatory features, helps prevent an immune response, and easies some autoimmune sicknesses. CBD oil can improve the way how precisely the immune system remembers harmful pathogens, thus speeding up the future recovery process and ensuring overall physical and mental well-being.

It doesn’t matter which methods you will choose to strengthen your immunity system as this process focus more on consistent efforts and positivity. Although we recommend you avoid saving when it comes to health and its improvement, there are plenty of options of how economically one can strengthen immunity right at home.

Mr Pain and His sister Anxiety

“One way to break up any kind of tension is good deep breathing.”

Byron Nelson

If Pain had a gender it would definitely be masculine. Just because…

 And why not? All of us have felt Him, this stingy, cracking life’s side-effect that just has enough Ego to be a part of your existence, whether it be after an intense workout, a performance, or even an exam.

He comes uninvited,

He comes and goes. Whenever He wishes!

Seems no one can stop Him…

Except!... You know one His weakness…

His weakness is simple, the one He’d be nothing without, -

Her name is Anxiety.  

Whatever that means…

But do be aware – She’s all for what Pain exists.

Here’s a little rhyme that came too naturally not to share. With this, a huge article joined along, all in honour of Him - the Mr. Pain. And of course, His sister...

Life is tense! That’s why Buddhists and Tibetan monks have their practices to end the suffering and get rid of all illusions in our world, including Pain.  

Unless you are a Tibetan monk, physical Pain, while in company of his great “sister” Anxiety must have visited you at least once before a big test, performance, or a public speaking.

However, some people experience it more than others. Based on global statistics it is estimated that 264 million adults around the globe experience Anxiety in their life. It is thought to be a psychological disorder, but it involves many systems of the body. Anxiety is a true chameleon and is called a “somatic” condition: meaning it is typically brought on and made worse not by any external source (for example a virus), but by our internal psychological and physiological functioning.

One way or another, along with Her almost always comes Mr. Pain. Therefore conversations about chronic painful problems routinely turn into conversations about Anxiety and it often ends up at the chicken-and-egg question: does Anxiety cause the Pain, or is the Pain causing the Anxiety?

Hint: it’s both.

Chronic Pain is extremely common and can be both a cause and consequence of Anxiety — sometimes equally, sometimes slanted much more one way than the other, but each always influencing the other to some degree. For many people with both Anxiety and Pain, solving the Pain is the best possible treatment for the Anxiety. Others must solve both at once. And a few will find that Pain is just one of many ways meaning that they are haunted by Anxiety demons.

How works the Anxiety = Pain Phenomenon?

The Anxiety causes our natural stress response to be constantly activated, and that our muscles contract as part of our stress response. When we experience Anxiety, our neuromuscular system never gets a chance to recover or return to normal. Our heart rate remains elevated and our muscles retain a higher than normal level of tension.  

So when our muscles are constantly contracted, our cells are forced to create energy for our muscles through the process of anaerobic metabolism. In this process, glucose is synthesized into adenosine triphosphate (ATP) without the help of oxygen, and lactic acid is produced as waste.

Lactic acid is often blamed for muscle soreness, but our body quickly breaks down lactic acid into lactate and hydrogen ions. A build-up of hydrogen ions, which activate our pain receptors, is likely the cause of the dull ache and burning sensation we feel in our muscles during strenuous exercise.

And a build - up of lactate is linked to Anxiety. Not surprisingly, studies show that people with Anxiety have higher levels of muscle tension, react to stress with stronger muscle contractions, and return to their normal level of tension slower.

Both Anxiety and chronic muscle tension are conditions of the nervous system in which our reactions have become habituated to the level that they are not under our conscious, voluntary control—that’s why they feel so uncontrollable and unchangeable. Unbalanced levels of hormones and neurotransmitters make Anxiety all - the - more challenging to overcome.

 Conscious intervention, retraining of the nervous system, and commitment to healthy lifestyle habits are all necessary to truly eliminate both anxiety and muscle tension.

Here we share some effective ways to eliminate the phenomena:

TRY MASSAGE THERAPY

Massage therapy is one of the best-known alternative remedies for relieving muscle tension. It addresses the muscle tissue directly and can assist the muscle in releasing its contraction, thus easing the tension. Massage might be useful in the treatment of stiff and sore muscles. There are many types of massage to choose from:

 Swedish massage is a gentle touch massage that is good for lighter forms of tension, while deep-tissue massage is effective in addressing deeper muscle tension. Either of these forms will be helpful and a great way to relieve muscle tension, tension headaches, and neck stiffness.

PRACTICE YOGA

Yoga is perhaps the oldest form of alternative muscle tension management. Some people claim the practice of yoga to be over 5,000 years old! Yoga uses techniques to lengthen, stretch and relax your muscles while simultaneously working with your breath. Yoga addresses both the physical side of muscle tension and the stress aspect as well.

TAKE HOT BATHS!

Hot water allows muscle fibers to loosen and relax, in turn relieving muscle tension. Hot baths can also be soothing to your nervous system. Healing substances can be added to the bath, such as essential oils and sea salts. Essential oils can also be added to a warm bath to assist in relaxation and release of muscle tension. But remember, - don’t stay in a warm bath too long. Be aware of the dizziness, which sometimes appear after being in a hot water for longer time.

TRY BALMS/GELS/HERBAL MEDICINE:

Try all sorts of remedies that could be applied to your body. This includes

The last, but not least of the remedies mentioned above is “balms that include CBD’’. That something worth another article or even a book, but we’ll try to make it as clear and short as possible.  

First, painkillers are not the best option to treat Pain and muscle spasms. They function via the central nervous system (CNS) by “deceiving” the mind into thinking there is no pain, while in - reality, there is. CBD really works a bit differently.

But in order to CBD to work as a muscle relaxant, cannabinoid receptors must be present at the site of muscular synapses. This is where the endocannabinoid system comes in:

If you haven’t heard of the endocannabinoid system (ECS), you need to inform yourself now. In short, it is an innate network of cannabinoids and cannabinoid receptors that occur 100% naturally in the human body. Everyone has the receptors, whether you are someone who has no idea about it, or you are herbal medicine PhD student. Another thing is also clear:

Cannabis does function well as both a neurological “painkiller” and a neuromuscular blocking agent. Not to mention, it does not have side effects as painkillers usually do; nevertheless, it isn’t addictive in any way (while this is also one of the features of some effective painkillers).

Alleviating muscle spasms at the molecular level is one of the many great uses of CBD. Thousands of people have switched over to it from prescription medications due to its high costs and dangerous side effects later.

One of the great products that we have in our stock, which you could always try in order to feel physically better and lower any discomfort and tension, e.g. muscle spasms, is CBD Cooling Gel:

Exclusive extracts come together and provide relief to overworked muscles and joints. All ingredients create a cooling synthesis to help relieve muscle soreness. The symbiosis of menthol, eucalyptus and glycerine (accompanied by the full spectrum of CBD) creates a treatment for your muscles and joints, to relief soreness and calm the body

*If interested (or you know who might be), please, check it out on our website, in the product section.

Depending on the type and severity of the muscle tension, trying each of these strategies could prove helpful in relieving muscle tension. Even though the tension is caused by Anxiety, which is a mental effect, the physical body is affected, including muscles. And while there are various approaches to soothing some of that muscle tension, it is also important to address the underlying cause, and learn to manage it.

We hope this article was helpful for you, so next time we can all unite and with ease conquer and control the one and only, Mr. Pain.

And His sister Anxiety.
