Pharmaceutical companies don’t want you to know what I’m about to tell you
This rarely known and in some cases covered up remedy for anxiety and stress stopped my own anxiety after decades of missing out on career opportunities and personal relationships. I want to share with all of you the one amazing fix I used to overcome my own limitations.
Big pharma companies are actively trying to stop this remedy. In fact, major news outlets have just released stories of how one pharmaceutical company that actively worked to block this amazing remedy has just released their own synthetic version. Which you’ll need a prescription to buy.
They are afraid of more people knowing the truth and have filed disclosure statements with the SEC saying it could disrupt their profits.
I tried many ways to stop anxiety over the years.
Don’t do what I did. I lost job promotions. A couple times I never even showed up for interviews for great jobs because I was just too anxious. I stayed in the back of the room and didn’t interact with others because I was too scared.
Don’t let this happen to you. Don’t hold yourself back from the life you want!
Since I started using this 2 years ago I have made more progress than the past 10 years combined.
I want you to experience the same benefits I did by
Stopping awkward social anxiety
Meeting and talking with more people
Slowing down a fast beating heart
Stopping profuse and noticeable sweating when talking with others
Getting out of the house without fear
Asking for and receiving a job promotion
Standing up and giving presentations in front of large groups
A Story of Anxiety
I shakily got to my feet and plodded to the head of the class. By the time I got to the podium my hands were shaking so much I literally tore my notes in half.
Sweat poured from my forehead and pooled in my lower back. I pushed the sweat beads off my face and wiped my hand onto my pants. My notes torn, the class holding back a laugh, I wracked my brain for the speech that I needed to give.
People actually made fun of me while I was up there, pretending their hands were shaking, and ripping up papers.
I might as well have been wearing no clothes. Actually, it would have been better if I weren’t wearing clothes because then I’d have a reason for my anxiety.
As usual, though, I was anxious, my body and mind thinking I was about to die and for no good reason.
I wish this was one of those dreams I have about being back in high school naked and forgetting about a big test. But this is ACTUALLY happened to me.
My Anxiety Got Worse
Ever since that moment, not only did my anxiety get worse, but my fear of public speaking forced me into college and a career where I thought I would NEVER have to public speak. For the most part, that was true. I only had to give one presentation in my entire college career, and it was in an MBA elective course. My degree was chemical engineering and I took an MBA course or two.
The one college speech I had to give was unfortunate. People laughed at me. Again.
It was a case study about a branding team at some big company and the main character of the case study was named Dominque. I kept calling her Dominique Dawes in my speech. It was 1996, and so Dawes was constantly in the news. I didn’t even know I was saying it and I couldn’t tell why everyone was laughing.
Well, my anxiety got worse. 2 speeches in my entire life and both ended in disaster.
Leaving College Didn’t Help Either
Eventually it was so bad, that I was working for a pharmaceutical company 3 years out of college and all I could hear anymore was my own heart beating in my chest. It was so loud and so fast from crippling anxiety that I couldn’t take it anymore.
At first I started smoking pot on my lunch break. That worked a bit to mellow me out and get me through the work day. Keep in mind, this was when I worked and lived in Colorado and is not something I do today.
Eventually I quit that job, traveled around the country for a few months and then ended up in Michigan at another pharmaceutical company. My anxiety chased me down there too. I was constantly panicked thinking “I have to get out of here” all the damn time.
I Tried Drinking
It helped me relax after work, but ultimately made my sleep quality worse.
I wanted to cure my anxiety naturally. Even though I was developing pharmaceuticals for a living, I was totally opposed to going on prescription medication.
Then, I went on Lexapro
I hated going to the doctor. Every time I went my blood pressure was high because of my anxiety. Every time I went I was afraid they were going to tell me I would have a heart attack because my heart was working too hard all the time.
I was constantly having anxiety about my anxiety. So I just asked my doctor to put me on Lexapro. Why Lexapro? Because a few members of my family were on it already and said it worked. I couldn’t take it anymore.
The doctor didn’t even blink. She just wrote a script and let me out the door.
In all my follow ups my blood pressure was normal and she figured she had cured my problem.
In truth Lexapro did help with my anxiety. In fact, I was able to sign up for Toastmasters, an organization designed to help people become better speakers.
I gave speeches. I could sleep at night without tossing and turning for hours unable to shut off my mind. I went to work and did a great job.
But I forgot stuff. All the time. I just didn’t care. My emotions were flat. I couldn’t remember things that happened days before. I mean NO recollection. I wasn’t doing anything bad, I just couldn’t remember, and I didn’t really care that I couldn’t remember.
I Didn’t Want To Take Pharmaceuticals
But I couldn’t find any natural cures. Anywhere.
I studied and got my Master’s degree in Holistic Nutrition. I tried a vegan diet. Vegetarian. Macrobiotic. These made things worse for me.
I decided I was ready to work on myself and cure my anxiety.
Here’s How I Stopped My Own Anxiety
First, I made a few key lifestyle changes including eating a paleo and Bulletproof diet and learning how to surrender.
Second, I found the natural remedy for anxiety disorder. I started taking CBD Oil
This remedy allowed me the breathing space to work on all those things I was too scared to pursue
in the past.
I got up and gave presentations.
I went to conferences and gave people hugs.
I approached others and initiated a conversation and even made friends that I talk with regularly.
I no longer have sweat pouring down my forehead during interviews and presentations.
I received a promotion at work to start up and lead a brand new team of people. Being a manager and leading others was never something I could have considered before.
The Research is There
CBD has been through pre-clinical research for anxiety and anxiety disorder.
The evidence shows it to be effective therapeutically for relieving both behavioral and physiological (reducing heart rate) effects of anxiety and stress.
It has also specifically been shown to reduce the anxiety and social anxiety associated with giving a public speech.
It has been shown to improve PTSD.
I’m not saying supplements are the only way to relieve anxiety, and in fact I cured the majority of my anxiety using techniques such as welcoming my anxiety instead of trying to get away from it. Using EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) before bed was also very helpful for me. I had a whole toolbox of things I could use to create freedom. But I needed the space that CBD gave me to feel
comfortable trying all these things out.
Even today, there are times I just can’t get out of my head. In those cases, CBD oil capsules allowed me to uplift my mood and feel calm.
This was enough to allow my natural confidence and playfulness to come through.
CBD oil is a tool and I will always have it on hand
CBD has a long history of research and success in helping with anxiety including social anxiety, generalized anxiety disorder, presentation based anxiety and more.
Other potential benefits include:
- Decreasing inflammation
- Protect against Alzheimer’s
- Potentially treating diabetes
- Fighting cancer
I now regularly get up in front of large groups of people and give presentations. I’m totally OK with people laughing at me on stage. And I’m even giving a TEDx presentation in a month!
