A MUM from Great Sankey has hailed CBD oil as a miracle product after it cleared up the psoriasis she has suffered from for more than a decade.

Tracy Ritchings, the regional operations manager at Bodyline Clinic in Woolston, was 'shocked by the results' after a month of using DR CBD Rx as her red, itchy and painful skin cleared and her anxiety calmed.

The 52-year-old said: “My scalp in particular, caused me huge problems. It became very itchy and sore.

"I would scratch my head without realising what I was doing, then I’d end up with flakes all over my shoulders, which I got very embarrassed about.

"Close friends would just brush my shoulders; I was grateful, but it upset me.

“I’ve always been very conscious of the patches on my legs as well. I never wore skirts or anything that showed my legs.

"It really affected my confidence.”

Tracy had been living in a state of severe discomfort with psoriasis for more than ten years.

The autoimmune condition brings out itchy, red and scaly patches of skin.

It was extremely painful, and at stressful times in her life, Tracy had terrible flare ups, which caused large patches to appear all over her lower legs, elbows and scalp.

Being a long-term sufferer of severe psoriasis caused Tracy’s self-esteem to reach an all-time low.

She said: “I would get very upset and anxious about it, which in turn made it worse, then I got more stressed. It’s was a vicious circle.”

Tracy was trapped in a ten-year cycle of pain, misery and embarrassment, which brought her to the verge of depression.

She had tried countless medicated creams and treatments but 'had little joy'.

Tracy added: “I began looking on the internet for an alternative treatment and stumbled across an article about a lady who’d used CBD oil to treat her psoriasis. I’d heard of CBD oil but didn’t realise it could be used for my condition.

“I’m a thorough person so I did a lot of research into which brand to use. Dr CBD Rx appealed to me because it has been developed by pharmacists, so I felt I could trust it more than some of the other brands you can buy in the shops. I also liked the fact it was in a spray, which seemed an easier way to take it.”

After just a couple of weeks of using the flavoured spray, she noticed a significant improvement. Within a month, her psoriasis had almost gone.

She said: “I didn’t want to get my hopes up, but I did feel less itchy and uncomfortable on the first couple of days. After a couple of weeks, I started to see a big improvement in the patches on my legs, but it was about a month before the real results started to show.

“It’s continued to stay away, even when I’m anxious. What’s more, I’m much calmer than I was previously so it’s had a doubly positive effect on my life. I have had not one side effect from using Dr CBD Rx. I just love how easy it is to use.”

Tom Chapman is the creator behind DR CBD Rx. He is a pharmacist, who specialises in plant extracts for medical use, and also has a PHD in Chinese medicine.

He said: "Psoriasis is a terrible skin condition and can cause severe pain and embarrassment for those who suffer from it. Historically, there’s been no definitive cure for the disease, but CBD oil is proven to have a remarkable effect, as we have seen with Tracy.

“I pioneered DR CBD Rx with the finest quality Cannabidiol (CBD), designed to combat painful skin conditions and ease anxiety, amongst other benefits, so I am delighted to hear that within a month of taking DR CBD Rx it had all but disappeared.”
