Chronic Illness Support

Embark on a transformative journey with our Chronic Illness Support and Alternative Medicine Group—a unique collaboration with Hempful Farms, guided by its compassionate owners, Chris and Andi Martin. This initiative offers a special blend of peer-led support and alternative healing modalities for those navigating the complexities of chronic illness. Through shared personal experiences, our leaders provide understanding and empathy, creating a foundation for holistic healing and connection.

Alternative Medicinal Support

In our commitment to exploring alternative medicinal support, each session includes the provision of complimentary cannabis/hemp oil, featuring RSO (Rick Simpson Oil). This powerful component is at the forefront of recent research, which suggests its potential in alleviating symptoms associated with various chronic illnesses:

  • Chronic Pain: RSO offers relief from chronic pain, providing a natural alternative to conventional pain management methods.
  • Anxiety and Stress: RSO aids in reducing anxiety and stress, fostering a sense of calm and resilience in those managing chronic conditions.
  • Sleep Disorders: RSO contributes to improved sleep quality and relief from insomnia, promoting restorative rest for individuals facing sleep disturbances.
  • Crohn’s Disease: RSO helps mitigate symptoms related to Crohn’s disease, offering potential relief from inflammation and discomfort associated with this condition.
  • Autoimmune Diseases: RSO supports autoimmune diseases by potentially modulating immune responses and alleviating symptoms.

Moreover, RSO is recognized for its potential benefits in managing various chronic illnesses, including Lyme disease, offering support in alleviating symptoms and promoting overall well-being.
