The word "inflammation" traces back to the Latin meaning for "set afire." As I've gotten older, my body and pain has changed. When I was young, I experienced temporary pain, occasionally from various injuries. But now, I'm living with chronic pain in my knees and joints. Simple tasks like climbing up stairs or driving can make my knees feel like they're on fire. I love taking my grandkids to the playground, but recently that's been tough to enjoy. I've tried everything: pills, hot packs, cold packs, over-the-counter and Rx meds. I've blended superfood smoothies and embarrassed myself in yoga classes, but nothing works. Prescriptions come with too many side effects and leave me feeling light-headed and nauseous.

Being busy keeps me happy and I'm not the type of person who can sit around all day and do nothing. When I started missing my daily walks and resenting the playground, my daughter suggested I try a CBD product. New to the market, they're catching a lot of buzz on managing pain. She recommended a brand called Sagely Naturals because they make easy-to-use products like lotions and capsules infused with CBD and other natural ingredients. This was something new, so I decided to give it a try.

Sagely Naturals is on a mission is to get people back to doing what they love most. They try to ease pain and relieve stress. Their CBD is sourced from organic and non GMO hemp. The hemp is grown and extracted at a facility that adheres to strict standards of operations.When I was young, I thought cannabinoids were just for hippies at Woodstock. But I've learned that CBD is a completely legal compound that can be extracted from hemp, kale, or even broccoli! Nowadays these products can be shipped to all 50 states. I was skeptical, but my daughter explained that there is absolutely no THC in Sagely's CBD products so I feel confident I'm not going to end up with any unwanted psychoactive effects. I had to ask these questions, but now I know there is nothing to worry about.

I started with Sagely's Relief and Recovery Cream, and I liked the comfortable feel of rubbing the peppermint-scented lotion on my hands. After a few weeks, the pain in my hands had lowered enough that I felt comfortable cooking meals for my family again. Then I started using the Relief and Recovery Capsules. I started by taking one in the mornings, and tried a few different dosages until I found the perfect balance for my unique body and pain level. The pills are the only things that have worked to minimize the pain in my knees, making it easier to get up and down stairs and feel independant again.

Now, I'm not afraid of the playground anymore. I love being able to help take care of my granddaughter, instead of my daughter always having to take care of me. Using the cream and capsules have become part of my morning routine. I also keep a small bottle of cream in my purse just in case I need it throughout the day. Sagely has given me the freedom to do all of my favorite things again, without chronic pain weighing me down.
