The holidays are usually the time when we think about giving to others.
What are you giving yourself? We often give of ourselves and (I do this myself) sometimes we neglect to give ourselves what we really need.
My gift to myself is health. I need to be at my optimum so that I can better give of myself to others, be it time, or a shoulder, or helping with errands, or whatever it may be.
One way I am investing in my health is by consuming and using hemp-based products.
Hemp is one of nature’s most nutritious plants.
Industrial hemp has been shown to help numerous health conditions: stress, psoriasis, hypertension, diabetes, obesity, depression, ADHD, poor circulation, migraines, immune diseases, addiction, multiple sclerosis, hair loss…the list goes on and on.
So, my gift is more hemp. And I will continue giving myself that gift into the new year.
What about you?
Will you give yourself the gift of better health?
Did you know that there are approximately 150 known forms of immune deficiency diseases? As many as 10 million people worldwide suffer from some sort of immune deficiency disease.
Some examples of immune disorders are :
- Chronic Fatigue Disorder
- Crohn’s Disease
- Multiple Sclerosis
- Ulcerative Colitis
- Myasthenia Gravis
The immune system consists of special cells, organs, and proteins, and they work to defend the body against germs. When there is a weakness in the immune system, infection and disease can occur.
Hempseed contains approximately 35% of protein, 65% of which is edestin protein. Edestin protein is very easily assimilated by the body because it is very similar to human globulin.
Hemp protein contains Omega fatty acids, and the fatty acids are the nutrients that help strengthen the cells and immune system. Omega fatty acids encourage the production of healthy cells and membranes.
In addition to being an excellent source of nutrition to help with the immune system, hempseeds also help with inflammation that is a result of the immune diseases.
