Discover The Truth About Cbd (Cannabidoil) And Other “Miracle” Cures


Believers in cannabidiol oil, or CBD oil, say this hemp-derived product can produce modern medical miracles, from treating depression to curing cancer. But are these benefits too good to be true?

Google “CBD oil” and you’ll find pages and pages of articles, ads and studies. Makers claim the popular hemp extract-sold online and available in many states in health and natural food stores-may help treat a long list of health problems, from acne to anxiety, chronic pain to cancer. But is it safe, and does it work? Here’s a quick guide to what you need to know.

  1. It’s Not Marijuana

Cannabidiol (CBD) is a chemical compound naturally found in cannabis, the same plant used to make marijuana. It isn’t addictive, and it can’t make you high.

  1. It Shows Some Scientific Promise

According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), CBD “may be useful in reducing pain and inflammation, controlling epileptic seizures and possibly even treating mental illnesses and addictions.”

  1. We Need to Know More

As a treatment for many other conditions, experts say it’s too soon to tell. While some animal studies using CBD sound promising, and as with most treatments, what works for some people doesn’t work for others. More clinical trials are needed.

  1. There Are Side Effects

CBD oil may cause tiredness, diarrhea or changes in appetite and weight. It can also interact with some prescription medicines. There may be long-term side effects too.

  1. It’s Not FDA-Approved

Shop carefully if you use CBD products-especially if you buy them online. A lack of government oversight means there are no guarantees a product is safe or its manufacturer’s claims are true. Labels may be misleading as well

If these topic areas sound interesting to you, then come learn more!

Discover How Climate Change Is Affecting Your Health


The impacts of climate change include warming temperatures, changes in precipitation, increases in the frequency or intensity of some extreme weather events, and rising sea levels. These impacts threaten our health by affecting the food we eat, the water we drink, the air we breathe, and the weather we experience.

The severity of these health risks will depend on the ability of public health and safety systems to address or prepare for these changing threats, as well as factors such as an individual’s behavior, age, gender, and economic status. Impacts will vary based on a where a person lives, how sensitive they are to health threats, how much they are exposed to climate change impacts, and how well they and their community are able to adapt to change.

Come join the East Shore District Health Department for this engaging talk on how climate changes might be affecting your health.

Over time, stress from poor foot function can stretch or tear the ligaments or tendons in your heel. Treatment goals for these problems include reducing abnormal pull on the ligaments and tendons.

Please join Dr. Satooj from Associated Podiatrists in North Haven for a discussion on common foot pain and problems. Our philosophy is to help educate people to have the necessary information to make good decisions regarding their foot and ankle health.
