Swing AWAY From Alzheimer’s Mood Swings

Swing AWAY From Alzheimer’s Mood Swings

Emma Knox

     Mood swings, whether they’re yours or your loved one’s, leave you perpetually unsettled. You’re on edge at every moment, never truly knowing what’ll greet you in the mirror or at the door. That’s what it’s like for Alzheimer’s caretakers: perpetually unsettling. Sometimes scary.

     You can try mood stabilizers, if you dare. But here’s the problem: prescriptions are unstable and tricky to get right. It usually takes years to find the perfect cocktail of medications for a specific person, and a grand percentage of those “perfect cocktails” only do so much. Not to mention they sometimes do more harm than good. People go off the medications, sick of the side effects and of their lack of progress, and then they’re right back where they started. CBD is, for the most part, a one-size-fits-all aid. It doesn’t have the nasty effects drugs do and (perk:) you can’t overdose on it. Plus, pills are often a hard pill to swallow, but CBD can be taken in a variety of different ways: using oil, in food/drinks/under the tongue; using gummies, which are delicious; through topicals, like lotions; and/or by inhaling them with a vape or similar device. For people with Alzheimer’s, CBD can be yardlines better than anything over-the-counter.

     What’s worse, imagine what the person with Alzheimer’s, the one experiencing the mood swings, is going through. It’s debilitating. Not only do mood swings impede on everyday tasks like errands and chores, but they impede on every aspect of their life: it’s difficult to maintain relationships, sleep properly, communicate, and sometimes even get out of bed in the morning. Brick by brick, Alzheimer’s mood swings can tear someone’s life apart… over no control of their own. But CBD can curb them. Over 50% of people with anxiety said their mood swings got “much better” after taking CBD, and an additional 30% said their mood swings got “a little better.” If 80% of people’s mood swings improved with CBD, isn’t it likely your loved one will improve too? (The answer is yes. It’s very likely.)

     Marriages are hard enough as-is. Parent-child relationships, the same. Add Alzheimer’s, and add the mood swings that come with it, and you’ll quickly learn what “hard” really means. One of the number one causes of divorce is conflict, and what’s a better source of conflict than a husband/wife who can’t control their moods? Who can fly off the handle at any given minute? You can love someone a whole awful lot, but any love will feel strain in those circumstances. And you don’t want to stop talking to your mom or your husband because you can’t handle the strain. You want to help them with the root of the problem: their mood swings. CBD can do that.

     CBD is recommended to people with anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, borderline personality disorder, ADHD, and ultimately, Alzheimer’s– because it’s an all-natural, low-risk, low-cost dose of support. It does everything you want–it helps with mood swings–and nothing you don’t (it won’t be a strain on your relationship, feelings, thoughts, or wallet). Mood swings are, quite frankly, a pain in the ass. To everyone involved. Save your loved one from them and save yourself. Get CBD, try it, and reap the benefits. We at NobleCanni are here to support you. I guarantee it’s worth a shot.
