The Facebook sleep doctors

I couldn’t find a better name for them.

You know whom. The people in various Facebook groups and elsewhere on the Internet. Those who have ‘expert opinions’ and know exactly what you’re going through from the other side of their Internet connection. Fuelled by the help of Wikipedia, Google and their own next level achievements.

Yes, I take a particular stance when it comes to handing out health advice over the Internet. Of course this may be perceived as somewhat self-contradictory since I’m about to advertise for something that has helped so many other people getting their health right. And in some cases it has helped them relieving themselves from their pain problems so much that they barely notice they’re in pain anymore.

However, unlike these armchair doctors, I go out of my way to emphasize that I’m not a medically qualified person and that you absolutely should not take health advice from me.

In fact, I’m the last person on Earth you should take health advice from.

Instead, I urge you to seek out the opinion of your doctor first. Or, doctors. In plural. That’s right. Get a second opinion. A third opinion. A fourth opinion. Get 10 opinions. 100 different opinions. Get a million opinions.

And see if that makes you any wiser or if you get rid of your pain problems.

Of course you may be lucky and actually find a method that cures your pain problems. Some people are fortunate like that. Literally the first thing they’re trying out works for them. They’re the ones that have won the Lottery of Life. No matter what they do, it always works for them.

Irrespective whether they have 1, 10 or 100 different doctors’ opinions.

Look.

I get it.

There’s a lot of flakey advice out there. A lot of snake oil sellers. A lot of bogus and baloney.

It’s easy to get confused.

I’ve seen so-called ‘doctors’ make outlandish claims that they can cure all disease using various herbs. Even outrageous statements like ‘I specialize in treating all kinds of diseases’ using this ancient weed.

You know it as much as I do. It ain’t true. Not in a million years.

What’s scary is that many of these witch doctor types have literally thousands of followers on their social media accounts.

I personally suspect it may be bots or fake accounts somehow.

Sadly, there are many people who are easily persuaded and seduced into buying whatever kind of health advice and promises that land in their lap. Whatever gets their attention first.

And I totally understand them. When you’ve been living in pain for so long and literally nothing has worked, you want to try something new.

When you’re so sick and tired of sitting in the waiting room at your doctor’s office and having to explain once again how you just cannot handle the pain anymore. When it feels like even your doctor, who’s supposed to be a professional, even doesn’t believe you. When you’re being challenged on your claims. Pressured into saying ‘it ain’t all that bad’ or whatever kind of inane nonsense they want to push down your throat.

If only they knew.

If only they knew how it was like to wake up every single day and having to worry over not if, but when the next flare up would come. How many different things to you had to plan for every single day. Such as what kind of clothes to wear that wouldn’t hurt you or in what kind of position you’d have to sit in, so you wouldn’t have to deal with the intense pain that came with that.

So on and so forth.

All those tiny little things that people take for granted.

Even bending over to tie your shoelaces.

Simple stuff that people do automatically without putting a thought into it.

Look.

I could go on forever about all of these little things that those without chronic pain cannot possibly understand.

But it’s only going to delay the inevitable.

Which is that you either have do to something about it or give up and let pain consume you for the rest of your life.

If you’ve read this far it means that you’re so sick and tired of being sick, you’re willing to try something that has actually worked for so many other people.

CBD oil.

As usual, I won’t give any guarantee or make any claim.

I’ll just say that more than one skeptic had their lives totally changed because of CBD oil.

And that’s all you need to know.
