CBD skin care for radiation treatment
Within the past year, I’ve communicated with many men and women diagnosed with cancer. From their treatment, I’ve learned this: With a cancer diagnosis comes treatment. With treatment comes side effects. With side effects come more medication and potentially more side effects. But, what if there was a product or products that could alleviate some of the cancer treatment side effects without causing more side effects.
Turns out, cannabis might just be the thing. Let’s take radiation, for example. Anyone who has undergone radiation treatment knows that at about three weeks into it, the burning starts. Sometimes the burns become so serious that treatment must halt so the patient can regain his or her health. Then it starts again.
Beyond burning, a patient also deals with blistering, increased appearance of aging, dermatitis, and sensitivity to sunlight to name a few.
CBD topicals and radiation
In general, doctors recommend aloe vera or other such lotions to help soothe the burning from radiation. But, as most cancer survivors know, they don’t do the trick. At Lost Remedy, we created the Burn Formula especially for radiation treatment.
Pure, organic aloe vera gel is the basis for this soothing, burn-relieving formula. Added protein and vitamin-rich avocado oil are combined with carefully selected essential oils and organic, hemp-derived CBD oil to complete the package. The simplicity of this formula translates to instant, cooling relief.
How to use CBD for radiation
There are tips to help make your skin less sensitive during radiation. Many of them are based in commonsense. Wear loose clothing, don’t use harsh soaps, dust areas where skin-to-skin contact occurs with cornstarch to absorb moisture, and most of all, hydrate your skin.
