Do you suffer from:

Chronic Fatigue
Joint/Muscle Pain

? ? ?

Then you may have a bacterial infection!


Chronic Fatigue
Multiple Sclerosis
Rheumatoid Arthritis
Lou Gehrig's disease
Parkinson's disease

The above are all based on clinical diagnosis, meaning there is no definitive testing, or are often MISTAKEN FOR OTHER ILLNESSES

Lyme disease, caused by the bacterium Borrelia burgdorferi, is a debilitating illness transmitted to humans through the bite of infected black-legged ticks. The pain associated with Lyme disease can be excruciating, manifesting as joint pain, muscle aches, and even neurological discomfort. Patients often struggle with persistent and severe pain, severely impacting their quality of life. Recent studies suggest that high-quality CBD oil may provide relief for those suffering from this relentless pain (see MindBodyGreen for more info). CBD oil, derived from the non-psychoactive component of the cannabis plant, has been shown to possess analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties, which could potentially alleviate the chronic pain experienced by Lyme disease patients. While more research is necessary to fully understand the efficacy of CBD oil in treating Lyme disease pain, early results are promising and offer hope for those seeking alternative methods of pain management.

Honeybee Therapy

Their products and customer service are top rate!

"The anti-bacterial activity of honey is based partly on its osmotic effects in that the bacteria that cause infection are unable to survive in honey because they become dehydrated. In addition, it was noted that the presence of hydrogen peroxide generated by the enzymatic activity of glucose oxidase in dilute honey contributes to the anti-bacterial activity. As hydrogen peroxide decomposes, it generates highly reactive free radicals that react and kill bacteria."
