Brilliant Botanicals

Recommending an adaptogen can be the perfect answer for your patients dealing with physical and mental stress. Adaptogens, a class of herbs that help the body adapt to stress, include many botanicals like ashwaghanda and rhodiola that are safe natural,and backed by clinical research.While adaptogens have been used medicinally for thousands of years,we are still learning about these unique medicinal plants. Most experts agree that the effects of adaptogens involve the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis, inflammation,  and various gene pathways. Adaptogens not only affect the perception or qualities of mental stress they bolster physical endurance and recovery as well.

CBD is emerging as one of the most exciting natural alternatives used to treat a wide range of common conditions,and for good reason. CBD is the major non- psychoactive component of Cannabis Sativa. Cannabinoids are anti-inflammatory,analgesic,anti-spasmodic,and they enhance circulation and cellular regeneration. CBD is used to treat a number of common conditions, including chronic pain, inflammation, seizures, insomnia, spasms, multiple sclerosis, and mental disorders such as anxiety and depression. As a topical agent, CBD oil can be directly applied to certain areas of the body as an effective means of relieving pain and soreness, reducing inflammation, and soothing inflammatory skin conditions such as psoriasis, dermatitis, and eczema. As CBD oil is non-psychoactive, applying it to the skin does not create mind-altering effects in the same manner that THC ingestion does.
