Today, May 10, is World Lupus Day - so let's shed some light on this disease and how we can help in alleviating some of the symptoms that come along with it. First things first, what is Lupus? Well, Lupus is a serious chronic autoimmune disease that causes patients to experience body pain, severe fatigue, nausea, anxiety and much more. For some, Lupus symptoms can be alleviated through medical herb prescriptions that can be collected from dispensaries.
Vaporizing the herbal prescriptions is a great way to quickly ease pain and decrease the severity of Lupus symptoms. Vaporizing is better than smoking because it doesn't combust (AKA burn) the medical herb. Smoking releases toxins similar to cigarettes, which can cause lung irritation. Vaporizing heats the air surrounding the herb, maintaining the integrity of the herbs uplifting effects. The G Pen Elite is a vaporizer that has a very large oven that can be filled for multiple sessions - meaning the amount of times one would have to reload herb would be diminished. In addition to having a large capacity and being very easy to load, the QuickDraw 500 DLX has non-threaded, magnetic cartridges that allow for effortless switching between dry blends, liquid, and solid extract, offering unmatched versatility and convenience.
If Lupus is causing you to have sleep issues, eating an edible version of your medical herb at night can help. Herb topicals, in the form of lotions or creams that you can rub into your skin, can help alleviate joint pain and swelling. Another form of consuming medical herb is via oil, putting tincture drops under your tongue. The MagicalButter machine allows ANYONE to create recipes, infusions, lotions and tinctures with little or no labor. It combines an immersion blender with a digital thermostat and heating unit. The MagicalButter grinds, heats, stirs, and steeps--all at the correct time intervals and temperature--so you achieve the perfect results every time.

I am not a doctor... although my mother wishes I would marry one. In no way should you self-diagnose or self-medicate based off of this post.
