🌙Adequate sleep is so crucial to healing the body.
When I can’t sleep my skin feels drier, uncomfortable, I’m irritated & have brain fog, feeling delirious. Taking a broad spectrum CBD hemp oil has helped me so much, & I’ve been using this particular organically sourced brand for over a year now. I became affiliated with them because of their high quality & unique products that actually work! Before I started taking CBD I was truly on the verge of a panic attack, super stressed & anxious, having crying breakdowns multiple times a week from overwhelm. Within a week of taking it, I noticed I hadn’t had a break down that week! I WISH I knew about this in the early stages of my horrific eczema healing topical steroid withdrawal process. It helps reduce inflammation, & has even improved my allergies, & menstrual cycles. The CALM formulation has given me deeper, uninterrupted sleep, & if I need extra support in the day, it helps to ease any anxiousness & discomfort. CBD is the ultimate adaptogen (a type of plant that increases the body’s ability to counter & resist emotional, physical, etc stressors allowing it to “adapt” to stressful circumstances) & is so beneficial for those going through topical steroid withdrawal as it’s common to have adrenal fatigue & unbalanced hormones as a side effect from years of steroid use. CBD helps to balance out the endocrine, nervous & immune system allowing the body to get out of that high stress “fight or flight” state (sympathetic nervous system) to the “rest, repair, renew” state (parasympathetic nervous system) where healing can finally take place. It’s a lot harder to heal when the body is in a stressful state. A little goes a long way, because of its liposomal sonicated nano technology – meaning it has super small molecules, is higher to absorb (95%, other oils are 6-10%) & faster to get directly into the bloodstream (in seconds), bypassing the GI tract. You don’t need multiple doses to get the desired effect – I take .75 – 1ml at night & .25ml in the day if I need extra support.

🌱🧡HEMP OIL RAFFLE!!🧡🌱 I will be doing a raffle for USA peeps from Dec 14-21 for participants to win a bottle of my favourite nano-enhanced liposomal hemp oil/cbd oil! I love this product so much & I love sharing it with others. It’s been such a blessing in my eczema recovery process as it has reduced my inflammation & itch, gives me deeper more rested sleep, it’s calmed down my high stress & anxiety giving me more peace, I have more mental focus & clarity & even better digestion! I WISH I had this in my arsenal in the earliest stages of topical steroid withdrawal when I was in such pain in my body that I would rarely get a good nights rest…literally seeing the sun come up, not having slept a wink. Anxiety & depression was so high, it would be so hard to get through each day. When in such a heightened state of detox it’s so important for your body to be in the parasympathetic mode (where healing can finally take place) which is “rest, repair & digest” which is what this hemp oil helps to do as it replenishes our endocannibinoid system & balances out the nervous, endocrine & immune systems. It takes us out of that sympathetic mode aka “fight or flight” & brings us into perfect homeostasis. This oil is so unique because of the liposomal delivery system, making it 6x more absorbable and 90% more bioavailable than other oils out there, remember “we are what we absorb!” Because of this high absorption rate, you don’t need a lot to get the desired effect, 4 pumps a day is all you need! This is a $130 value!

This nano-enhanced liposomal hemp oil has been such a great healing botanical that I’ve added to my regimen. Why is this specific oil so amazing? Well it’s 6x more absorbable than other oils on the market & is 90% more bioavailable. Most hemp/cbd oils are 6-10% – so you’d have to take more to get the desired effect. “Nano-enhanced liposomal delivery” means that it can break down the particles in the oil without changing the molecular structure into small liposomes. This process helps the cannabinoids go more directly into the part of the cell where they need to be to work their magic! 💫
This oil helps to balance out the nervous system, taking us out of that constant “fight or flight” mode and puts us in “rest & repair” mode. It balances the endocrine system which is responsible for our hormones that control our mood, sleep, appetite and metabolism. It’s also an immuno regulator – when the immune system is suppressed it bumps it up, when it’s overactive it suppresses it.
***This oil has virtually no THC, the psychoactive compound found in cannabis, but only CBD, the healing compound. Learn more about the difference between Hemp & Marijuana HERE
🌿 I’ve personally experienced deeper sleep, less itch & inflammation, even better digestion, deeper mental clarity & focus, and anxiety & overwhelming feelings of stress have been lifted! I’m a full time care giver to my mom as she recovers from a spinal cord injury, and it can be a lot at times…all of the responsibility and support that I have to give. I’ve had many stressful breakdowns in the past but I noticed when I started taking this oil, that I can just deal with anything that comes my way much better. I haven’t had emotional breakdowns like how I did in the past! It’s been such a blessing in my life and I’m always so excited to share it with everyone!🙏🏽
I WISH I had this in the worst stages of TSW (depression & anxiety was high, sleepless nights to where the sun was rising and I hadn’t slept a wink, hormones so out of wack from withdrawing from the topical steroids, and in constant pain, itch and inflammation in my body). I just know it will be a great healing tool for anyone, and especially those going through the intense detox symptoms in healing their eczema.

Let’s talk about Turmeric! I love this wonderful spice and have been using it all of my life and for the most part didn’t even know it! I grew up in a Caribbean household and we had vibrant yellow curry dishes for dinner many times. The distinctive golden hue would be in our yellow split pea dahl with rice, or our curried green beans and as the sauce to the chickpea and potato fillings for rotis. It wasn’t until later in life did I realize how medicinal this spice is and how it can be used for more than just cooking!
Yup, you read that title right… March 2016 marks four whole years that I’ve been topical steroid free! It’s pretty amazing when I look back at all that I’ve endured, physically, mentally & emotionally. This post is kind of bittersweet because on one hand I have nothing but gratitude in my heart that I’ve come this far but on the other hand I wish I could be writing this saying that I’m completely healed and back to my normal life. Now this isn’t to discourage anyone…healing DOES happen. In my case it’s taking awhile. If you’re new to my blog I think it’s best for me to give some background of my history. I used topical steroids from 10 months old to 26 years old. I also had injections of (I believe) triamcinolone into my hands and feet multiple times. I was diagnosed with stage 3 Hodgkin’s Lymphoma in 2008, which I underwent 6 months of chemo twice a month (it’s said chemo has a half life in the body up to 10-12 years!). So needless to say I’ve had A LOT of toxic build up in my body, hence my lengthy withdrawal. Buuuut I’m apparently right around the time as far as healing times go. Supposedly for every 7 years you’ve used TS you will go through a year of withdrawal. So although actually 28 years of usage would equal 4 years of withdrawal, I’m not too far off, plus I have the “added bonus” of injections and chemo 😦 . Everyone is different and depending on your usage and potency you may have a shorter or longer healing time than myself, so don’t be alarmed by my lengthy healing time… you may restore faster than me, it just all depends.
Hey Warriors! Please check out this phenomenal writers essay written for http://www.radlabmag.com. Her name is Summer Dowd-Lukesh, and her words had me in tears and conjured up flash backs to how I felt in the most intense times of my withdrawal. Her vulnerability is very courageous and I’m sure she found writing and sharing her experience to be very cathartic.
Topical Steroid Withdrawal is a process that will not only transform your body for the better as you physically heal from the toxins of the steroid use, but it will also test you mentally and emotionally. Many warriors have gone through the trials of depression while healing and have found ways to cope, stay strong and to keep pressing on. I felt that it would be a great idea to reach out to those on the facebook groups, itsan.org forum, and to those who have already healed from eczema and get their accounts on how they got through the dark time in their lives.
