Eric has played Lawn Bowls for nearly 20 years but was forced to stop playing in 2017 due to the chronic pain associated with his Rheumatoid Arthritis. Rheumatoid Arthritis or RA, is an autoimmune disease where the body’s immune system attacks its own tissue, mostly in the joints, creating inflammation.
In Eric’s case this resulted in chronic pain and swelling in his wrists, knees and ankles. At his worst he was unable to walk and getting out of bed would require dragging himself across the floor and heaving himself upright whilst grappling the door handle. This caused Eric to become grumpy and irritable, affecting relationships with friends and wife Marlene. With no known cure for Rheumatoid, Eric was prescribed Methotrexate; an immune system suppressant and also a form of chemotherapy. However, Methotrexate can have negative side effects and can cause damage to internal organs if taken long term, which is something Eric didn’t feel comfortable with.
Sick of watching bowls from the sidelines and desperate to try a more natural form of treatment to ease pain, Eric, with the help of his grandson, tried CBD Oil. The results have been tremendous! Now, Eric jumps out of bed with a spring in his step and a smile on his face and when he isn’t playing bowls, he’s raving about the positive effects of CBD to his friends in the clubrooms.
CBD Oil has restored a sense of purpose to Eric’s life and he feels reborn, much to the delight of Marlene. Happy wife, happy life indeed.
