It is winter 2014 in Frankfurt, Germany. The month is December, right before Christmas. Outside temperature is about 4 degrees Fahrenheit. It is the perfect time to be there...
The Story I am About to Tell You Now is About Matt, the Co-founder of LiefRoyal
It is the perfect time to be at the hospital with fever and body temperature of 106.1 Fahrenheit. I was changing my bedsheets about five times every single day. Every day the doctor was filling out about 16 ampoules full of blood for tests. They scanned my organs and it came out that my liver has grown and there are several inflammations within me. I was devasted and sad. I had pneumonia two times in my life. First time I was about two years old. The second time I was six. I told the doctors that it is pneumonia again and they should give me the antibiotics to fight it. For some reasons they were hesitating and kept me suffering. I couldn't eat. I couldn't sleep. I was losing pound after pound. Feeling weaker and weaker.
I Gave the Doctors an Ultimatum
It was 1 AM on a Saturday when I couldn't stand it anymore. My temperature went up and I felt like dying. I started screaming and called the doctor to see me. I told her that if they won't provide my body with antibiotics to fight pneumonia I will call the ambulance and ask to take me to the other hospital. By the time the doctor saw my body temperature she rushed to get the medicine. About two hours later my temperature dropped to 95 degrees. I was extremely cold and tired. On Sunday morning the final results came. In fact, I had pneumonia for the third time in my life.
I started feeling better and left the hospital on December 23rd. Right on time to see my family in Poland for Christmas. It was the happiest Christmas in my life. I was ready for change.
I was into sports ever since I turned 13 and my dad laughed at me stating that I am weak as a little girl and can't even do a push-up. He was right, I couldn't perform even one. I couldn't even hold the position of a push-up. That day has changed my life and I am thankful to my dad for saying that. I started performing one push-up a day on an elevated bar so it's doable for me. Soon, I began my journey with Korean martial arts, performed over 200 push-ups a day, and added couple hundreds of sit-ups to it.
Even though I was exercising and eating healthy I was always sick. Every four to six weeks I had a fever, sneezing, coughing and muscle aches. It was horrible 20 years when it comes to health. I couldn't understand it. After that stay at the hospital, I started being very curious about nutrition and health. I began to do more research and read the newest studies. I came across fasting and the ketogenic diet. It benefited me a lot. I was able to stay healthy for about four or five months. It was huge for me. I was very happy.
Fast forward to 2019, I came across Dr. Raphael Mechoulam and his speeches about the endocannabinoid system. I didn't understand it at first but after a few weeks, it clicked. I connected all dots and saw the sense in it. The endocannabinoid system which we call ECS is within our bodies. At first, I was hesitant to try the CBD oils as I read the study results done by the biggest cannabis magazine. They have tested over 40 CBD products and the results were shocking. Only four products contained cannabidiol (CBD) in them. Of course, I ordered the one that was proven to having the highest amount of CBD in it.
The First Encounter With CBD
My wife and I took our first drops of CBD tincture right before going to sleep. I never had problems with sleeping but I didn't know what to expect. That night we slept like never before. We loved it. So, we decided to give it a try in the morning. Wow. My cognitive function and mental clarity got into another level. I could think very clearly. There was one more thing I discovered...
That year right after coming back from honeymoon my wife and I started our businesses and I quit my 9 to 5. You can imagine the levels of stress we were experiencing.
I discovered that I feel calm. I don't have an awkward anxiety feeling anymore. It was amazing.
Education and Our Mission
I looked at my wife and said to her that we have to continue to educate ourselves and teach others about the 21st-century wonder which is the endocannabinoid system. The way CBD directs our bodies to thrive for the homeostasis is simply incredible. Our nervous system, immune system or endocrine system are very well connected. We can't continue hurting it by eating bad foods, not being active at all and putting us into a position that is far away from being balanced. Achieving the homeostasis.
