The day after Thanksgiving in 2016, Marnie DeWulf suffered a grand mal seizure. She lost consciousness and her muscles contracted violently.
When the seizure struck, DeWulf was being treated for depression and anxiety, chronic pain associated with autoimmune issues and Type 1 diabetes.
“Every time I went into a doctor’s office, they were trying to prescribe me more and more pills,” says the 42-year-old mother of five from Michigan. “They were trying to push any pharmaceutical on me.”
Fed up with the cocktail of drugs, she went in search of natural alternatives. She came across CBD, tried it and wound up experiencing what she describes as life-changing results.
Today, DeWulf uses CBD oil and a CBD topical cream, which she says ease her symptoms. The only prescription she still depends on is insulin.
“I can’t tell you what a difference CBD has made for me,” she says. “It’s hard to believe that something so simple can be so effective.”
