Exarmyguy,

I've met many vegans - not surprising as Oz supposedly has more vegans per capita than any other country - and whilst most of them are a picture of good health there are certainly many that aren't. Then again, I think those particular people would look just as unhealthy if they were on a 'regular' diet. (Apart from their unhealthy appearance I've noticed that they are often the people who are most insistent that veganism will save the planet.)
Obviously a person can't just decide that he/she is going to drop meat and dairy in favour of vegetables without having an understanding of exactly what the body needs to be maintain good health and I feel very lucky to have my vegan daughters well educated in that respect.
Not pushing their vegan barrow, but I don't mind having to share the path with them... as long as they don't try to run me over with it.

P.S. I think that many vegans would claim that their diet is a form of natural remedy for just about every ill they could name.

All Im saying is if they say its good for their health I have no problem. I just have found the majority are against killing living things and are quite rabid about it. Them being against killing seems to exclude plants though.

Oh, that is funny because I love CBD. The edibles did nothing for me but smoking the hemp? BAM no migraine. And I got a lot of migraines. I had to do that today, woke up with a nasty headache so bad I didn't want to get out of bed - I took a nap after work - and smoked, halfway through the thing the headache was gone and I have had good energy and zero pain all night.

But it does not work for my husband's back pain. Not a bit. But I read about Kratom here and tried it in desperation, it worked great and he is off the opiods. But the Kratom does not work for the migraines... go figure.

I think some remedies just depend on individual biology.

For years I had bad athletes foot that would consistently come back. Came from years of working at a fast food restaurant and often having wet shoes from working in the back.

I remember seeing an ad, I think in the newspaper or a magazine, for some special powder. It was very pricey - I think like $20 for just a little bit. Anyway, the kicker was that all you had to add was apple cider vinegar to it and then soak your feet in it.

And I'm thinking to myself... ummm... the ACV is what is going to help your feet, the extra stuff they are charging you for are just bath salts and maybe some herbs that aren't going to do anything other than perhaps smell nice.


I now have very bad feet (severe plantar fasciitis and tendonitis). I have tried many of those CBD creams and oils in a variety of strengths, with no noticeable difference.

I am suspicious of CBD oil claims. It just solves too many problems to be real IMO.

My experience CBD only works if I smoke it, and even then not for my husband.

But, like I said Kratom doesn't do anything for my pain (good for mood though), and it does wonders on him to the point he fired the pain doctor.

I got more smokes at the CBD shop today and even got a free loosey. And a pipe with a flat bottom because I hate a wobbly pipe. Halfway thought a smoke the migraines are gone - like THAT my aunt is so envious but her husband would freak if she smoked.
