The Remedy Journey
It was the fall of 2017—I was a 43-year-old husband, father, and sunrise to sunset executive with a lot on my plate. Between raising a family and tackling a total home renovation, there was barely enough time to enjoy the sports I love—golf, surfing, paddle tennis and basketball. Earlier in the year, my insurance brokerage firm where I was a partner merged with 23 other firms to form a new national company, so there was a ton of integration and work to get done. And then I lost my dad suddenly at the age of 72.
It was then that my body decided to remind me that I was 43 and not 23. A tightness in my back quickly turned into a tingling sensation down to my right toe. An MRI confirmed a L4-L5 herniation. Simple tasks like getting into my car, or putting on a sock grew to where I couldn’t sit for more than 20 minutes, or get a decent night’s sleep.
It was a good time to hit the reset button. I chose a holistic approach with the help of some great people that formed my new dream team – a neurokinesiologist, massage therapist, yoga instructor, acupuncturist and a close friend who introduced me to the benefits CBD. I began to incorporate CBD into my daily fitness routine. Throw in a little cryotherapy and swimming for good measure, and my body was beginning a comeback. Six months later, I was playing golf, surfing, sleeping and sitting much more comfortably—without surgery or even a cortisone shot. Running, tennis, or bootcamps will take more therapy (can’t say I miss those burpees much), but I wouldn’t rule it out.
Three years ago, I didn’t know CBD from DVDs but now I have four forms of it in my kitchen. I have greater mobility, control of my pain and less overall physical stress. If you have an experience or journey to recovery like mine, please share it with us.
