Hello and welcome to Distraction. I’m your host, Dr. Ned Hallowell. We found today’s guest through our sponsor, OmegaBrite Wellness. Her name is Peggy, and she joins me today to share her story with us. You’ve heard me talking for several months now about my experience with their CBD and Omega-3 supplements, so we thought it’d be nice for you to hear someone else’s experience with OmegaBrite Wellness. So, thank you for joining me today, Peggy

Peggy:
Oh, thank you for having me.

Dr. Ned Hallowell:
So can you just jump right in and tell us what it’s been like with OmegaBrite?

Peggy:
Yeah, it’s been great. My particular pain is sciatica, which a lot of people suffer from.

Dr. Ned Hallowell:
Yeah.

Peggy:
So it’s very, very painful. It sort of built up over a couple of years. I mean, about two years ago I had this pain and I would go for a walk and that would help. And over time, that walk started to be so painful I had to stop and I couldn’t walk anymore. And then sort of the old thing, you’re supposed to walk to help but you can’t walk because it hurts and that loop. And so it got to where basically 10 minutes into a walk, I was in so much pain I was almost crying. I had to like turn around and go back home, so.

Dr. Ned Hallowell:
Wow.

Peggy:
Yeah, so over a long period of time. Some people only have sciatica for a short … like a few weeks or a couple of months. I mean, mine was a hole … And I also have pain on the same side, there’s also like a separate knee pain that kind of all works together for horrendous pain.

Dr. Ned Hallowell:
They couldn’t diagnose it with an MRI of some nerve entrapment syndrome or anything like that?

Peggy:
No, just the sciatica so far, but they are looking at doing some other MRIs for spinal stenosis, so we’ll see. Yeah, I don’t know yet on that.

Dr. Ned Hallowell:
So that’s when you discovered OmegaBrite.

Peggy:
Yeah. Well, in the midst of all that I had to move, suddenly I had to move. And the thought of that and the pain that that was going to cause. And sure enough, I mean, I’d move and then the end of the day, I would just fall into so much pain. And a friend of mine who was taking OmegaBrite, her and her son, she said, “Let me bring you over some of the CBD.” And I’m like, “Okay, I’ll do anything. I’m in so much pain.”

Peggy:
Because I was taking some kind of like high pain ibuprofen or high level, and that’s really bad for my kidneys. So I didn’t want to do that, I just did it out of desperation.

Dr. Ned Hallowell:
Right.

Peggy:
So she brought it over. I thought, Oh, we’ll see. It probably won’t do much of any good but I’m willing to try anything because I’m in so much pain.

Dr. Ned Hallowell:
Right.

Peggy:
And to my delight and surprise, it worked immediately. So the one great thing to me about it is that, like the CBD, the full spectrum, it works fast. So you take it and the pain is gone.

Dr. Ned Hallowell:
Wow. So it was CBD and the Omega-3 or just the CBD?

Peggy:
Well, I take them both, but if I’m just having pain, the minute I just take a CBD, the pain goes away.

Dr. Ned Hallowell:
That’s fantastic. Wow.

Peggy:
Yeah, for me it works. Yeah, it really works fast and good. I always keep a little bit in my purse, if I’m going to be somewhere, like I know I’m going to be out for the day or something, I’ll take one before I leave and then I always keep a little bottle in my purse, so if I have any breakthrough pain. But I never ended up taking more than two in a day and that means I’ve really had some bad pain.

Dr. Ned Hallowell:
Really? Only two, my gosh. I start every day with four of them and I’m not taking it for any symptom. I’m just taking it for wellbeing. But just two of those pills does it for you?

Peggy:
Yeah. And I’m telling you, my pain makes me want to cry and I have a very high pain tolerance, so my pain’s pretty bad.

Dr. Ned Hallowell:
Wow. So instead of getting hooked on Oxycontin, you’ve kind of-

Peggy:
Exactly. Yeah, and that would be really bad for my kidneys, so I don’t want to do that.

Dr. Ned Hallowell:
Yeah, no absolutely

Peggy:
I really try to stay as holistic as I can and natural, so that’s another thing I like about this.

Dr. Ned Hallowell:
How did you discover the OmegaBrite Wellness CBD?

Peggy:
Well, that was what I was saying before that a friend of mine was taking them, her and her son.

Dr. Ned Hallowell:
Oh, okay.

Peggy:
And so she brought me some, she brought me both actually, the Omega-3 formula and the CBD full spectrum.

Dr. Ned Hallowell:
Wow.

Peggy:
But she said, “Oh, use the CBD full spectrum because that helps with pain.” So at that moment, I just took that. But now I take the OmegaBrite Omega-3 formula in the morning with the CBD and then if I have any more pain, I’ll just take CBD by itself.

Dr. Ned Hallowell:
That’s fantastic. Well, you must be grateful to your friend for sharing that.

Peggy:
Oh yeah. She a dear friend and that’s why I tried it in the first place or else I would be very, very skeptical. But I knew she wouldn’t ask me to try something that wasn’t going to work.

Dr. Ned Hallowell:
Thank you, Peggy. This is terrific information for people and it is a wonderful product. I can’t thank you enough.

Peggy:
It really is. I’m so happy to have found it.

Dr. Ned Hallowell:
That’s fantastic. That’s fantastic. Okay. Well that’s it for today. Thanks so much to Peggy for sharing her story. If you’d like to learn more about OmegaBrite Wellness and their supplements, just go to OmegaBrite, that’s B-R-I-T-E, omegabritewellness.com.
