How CBD Balm can Help Psoriasis Symptoms

Millions of people around the world have to live with psoriasis as part of their daily lives. Psoriasis is an auto-immune disease, and it is chronic in its nature. Those who suffer with psoriasis often have an overactive immune system which causes skin cells to grow faster than they should. This results in the skin becoming red, scaly and extremely painful patches of skin begin to build up. The areas of skin that are impacted by psoriasis are itchy, disruptive and quite unseemly.

Unfortunately, psoriasis is not a curable condition and the only option sufferers have is to treat the symptoms of the condition and learn how to best live with their condition. CBD balm offers a potential treatment for those suffering with psoriasis and help with inflammation and symptom management. This article will go on to identify exactly what psoriasis is, its symptoms and causes and specifically how CBD balm can offer relief that cannot be found elsewhere.

Fibromyalgia: Getting a Good Night’s Sleep

Fibromyalgia: Getting a Good Night’s Sleep

Sleep is a vital element of pain reduction and management of symptoms for Fibromyalgia suffers.  However, this can be incredibly difficult to do when suffering from the condition. The lowered pain threshold of suffers causes sleep disturbances. There is even data, taken through polysomnographic sleep analysis, to suggest that during non-rapid eye movement sleep cycles, in which the brain is supposed to be resting, fibromyalgia suffers experience wakefulness. Ultimately, this then results in a less restful and restorative night’s sleep. It is this restoration which is needed to help manage and reduce fibromyalgia sufferer’s symptoms. In fact, sleep deprivation causes a lowered pain threshold in even the healthiest of people. For a fibromyalgia sufferer, this worsens chronic pain and increases the likelihood of flare-ups.
