An article was brought to my attention today about “Cannabis May Reduce Deadly Covid-19 Lung Inflammation: Researchers Explain Why.” This article caught my attention, not so much because its cannabis, but because its “natural” and the mention of inflammation instantly got my attention because this is what I have worked at for years to reduce in my own body, and honestly didn’t realize it until after why I was so much more comfortable.
So first, what is inflammation? How do you know if you have inflammation in your body?
From the above tagged article, Understanding Inflammation, they have listed some common symptoms:
- body pain
- constant fatigue and insomnia
- depression, anxiety, and other mood disorders
- gastrointestinal issues, like constipation, diarrhea, and acid reflux
- weight gain
- frequent infections
There is also more specific listed symptoms for things like rheumatoid arthritis, IBS, MS.
Inflammation in our bodies can be caused by these illnesses, as well as others, but also by “common” ingredients in our foods and drinks. Such as:
- refined carbohydrates
- processed meats
- trans fats

Common ingredients that our government allows to be in our foods and drinks… and not to sound like a hypocrite (like our government) yes I do enjoy alcohol in moderation. As my health has drastically improved over the past few years I am careful what I enjoy, how much and the ingredients. For example sugar, my body now recognizes pretty much instantly, I get this feeling in my mouth and head even before a “sugar rush”. Restless legs also can result from any of the above.
I do however also drink Turmeric everyday. Take high quality supplements of minerals, vitamins, omegas which truly was a catalyst in my drastic health improvement. I regularly also use Frankincense, I also have Copaiba (very similar to CBD) beside my bed.
If you have been reading along on my journey, you will know that with PCOS inflammation is also a concern, as well as with IBS, endometriosis can also be affected and can also contribute to thyroid issues. Are you connecting more dots here?
Ive previously posted about how I completely transformed my life and health by going natural. Yup thats it. Nothing drastic. I eat A LOT at times 😉 I love food. But I shifted my fuel to healthy options. As much as those deep fried fries and chicken fingers taste – I was in PAIN after eating them, among other things.
“In the article, researchers explain that “recent reports have suggested that acute infection is associated with a cytokine superstorm, which contributes to the symptoms of fever, cough, muscle pain.” These extreme instances of inflammation can lead to severe pneumonia which clog up the lungs, make breathing difficult or impossible. So, one of the important strategies that scientists are studying in the fight against COVID-19 is reducing inflammation.“
