It is not uncommon for people to read and hear about chronic pain. However, experiencing it firsthand is an entirely different story. Simply put, only those who have actually been under its wrath know how limiting and restricting chronic pain can be.
When chronic pain sidelined David Anthony Schroeder from life, it took him a little while to realize that just because the gruesome condition was taking over his body, it did not mean that it had to take over his life as well. Stepping into his light, the survivor reclaimed his power, took action, and conquered his pain.
According to David, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that fifty million Americans live with chronic pain. In addition, another twenty million is estimated to live with high-impact chronic pain, which means that their work activities and other lifestyle habits are limited.
On the surface, it might seem that chronic pain is only one thing to worry about. But unfortunately, it brings with it a plethora of other health problems such as limited mobility, anxiety, depression, reduced quality of life, addiction, and even death. And in this sense, David explains that people who are suffering from chronic pain don’t have to have such a hard time functioning.
Struggling with chronic pain off and on for nearly fifty years, David was prompted to use a cannabidiol (CBD) pain stick from which he found almost immediate pain relief. Struck by how the product was doing wonders on his condition, he became one of the nation’s foremost advocates for the use of CBD for therapeutic pain management. And after spending three years of weeding through the advantages and disadvantages and the Deluge of misinformation regarding the use of CBD, he wrote the book, 7 Ways To Manage Pain With CBD.
Since it is the first and only one of its kind, David’s book delves into the basics of CBD so that a person with no background therein can quickly grasp everything there is to know about its usage.
As a useful pain management tool, CBD has helped millions of people recover from their medical conditions. And because of it, they finally took back the life and joy that the pain stole from them.
Although managing chronic pain is an uphill battle, it is not insurmountable. As a matter of fact, it was by educating and arming himself with knowledge about the benefits of CBD that he improved his quality of life and his ability to function with less pain.
Staying upbeat during difficult times is easier said than done. So when his good health was suddenly taken away from him, David struggled to keep a positive attitude. And now that he has overcome the painful journey, he wishes to be a source of inspiration to those who are still struggling with chronic pain.
With his book, 7 Ways To Manage Pain With CBD, David hopes that more people will become aware of how to deal with chronic pain as well as be more understanding to those who are suffering from it.
