The Elevated Way: Unlocking the Secret to Youthful Energy and Weight Loss

From the Desk of Denise Costello, RN, MS
Holistic Caring Cannabis Nurse Health Coach


Hello everyone, have you ever felt the frustration of struggling with weight management, low energy levels, or hormonal changes, especially as you age? If so, you’re not alone. As a woman over 40 myself, I understand the challenges that come with these issues. But what if I told you there are holistic and natural solutions available that can make a significant impact on your overall well-being? Today, I’ll share three powerful tools that can revolutionize your approach to health and well-being, and even promote a rapid recovery from surgery: THCV, CBD, CBG, and blood flow resistance training.

By joining this journey towards optimal well-being, you will discover the path to a vibrant and energized life. Welcome to The Elevated Way!

Let’s start with THCV, a non-impairing compound found in the cannabis/hemp plant. THCV offers a range of holistic benefits for women over 40. Research has shown that THCV can increase metabolism, regulate appetite, enhance energy levels, and help stabilize blood sugar levels. These benefits make THCV a promising option for those navigating through menopause or struggling with weight management and low energy levels.

In addition to incorporating THCV into your wellness routine, blood flow resistance training is another transformative practice that can have a significant impact on your health. This technique triggers a surge in growth hormone levels, simulating the effects of high intensity exercise without the associated risks. By using bands that slow down blood flow, individuals can perform low-intensity exercises that lead to increased metabolism, energy levels, and weight loss.

The Afterburn effect of blood flow resistance training ensures that your body continues to burn calories at an elevated rate even after the exercise is over, making it a powerful tool for permanent weight loss and improved overall health. This technique is accessible to people of all ages and fitness levels, offering a safe and effective way to stimulate growth hormone release and achieve lasting results without the need for traditional high-intensity workouts.

As a nurse, I don’t like to see people suffer, especially when I know there is an Elevated Way to heal that is safe, more effective and transformational! Here is an example of a recent client who had a positive post-op surgical experience, and managed her menopausal symptoms by incorporating these methods.

Client Case Study: Meet a 63-year-old client who is a business coach and massage therapist preparing for surgery to repair a broken wrist. She had bad experiences in the past with post-op pain management and using oxycodone, and was now interested in trying cannabinoids to manage her pain. She had never used cannabis or CBD and was leary about being “too high” or feeling impaired.


A week prior to surgery, she started her Bloom Hemp products to help manage her sleep, pain and inflammation. This included:


After her surgery, she continued her Bloom Hemp products as listed:


She was amazed by how much her pain and sleep was managed prior to surgery with the Bloom Hemp products and the CBD:THC 1:1 oil. After surgery, she continued to sleep well, managed her pain, and kept the swelling down. Even her doctor was amazed! In addition to the plant medicine, meditation, breathwork, anti-inflammatory meals, and energy healing were incorporated to support her healing.

She was thrilled that she didn’t have to suffer through the nauseating side effects of pharmaceuticals, and that her pain was managed effectively and naturally. She felt the cannabinoids helped her to be more relaxed, open, creative and stated, “I felt like it opened the portal to my true self.” Her husband was grateful for getting his wife back to her energetic, fun, radiant self.

In the subsequent stage of her recuperation, the emphasis shifted towards enhancing her flexibility, bolstering strength, and addressing the weight gain that persisted after entering menopause. We then added the Blood Flow Resistance Band training to increase her strength and metabolism, and decrease pain.

Once she returned to her coaching work, her plan shifted to include:

Bloom Hemp Advanced Focus tincture in the morning to optimize both pain management and a cognitive boost. Focus formula includes CBD, CBG & THCV to aid in weight loss, and Lions Mane, and Yerba Mate for mental focus and all day energy. The CBD and CBG will help lower inflammation to support healing.

She loved the Bloom Advanced Focus for its swift effects on appetite control, energy, and mental sharpness. The exercises synergized perfectly with Bloom Advanced Focus, enhancing the surgical experience and enabling a swift recovery. This also led to shedding the weight that had stubbornly resisted previous dieting attempts. Hooray!

The comprehensive nursing care plan presented her with a holistic method for health and well-being, enabling her to steer her own path to wellness. By advocating for the advantages of CBD, THC, and THCV formulas coupled with resistance training to boost blood flow, we can offer valuable perspectives on transforming our methods for aging, recovery, and daily living.

This is just one story of many inspiring and empowering journeys towards a healthier and more vibrant life. Let us know how we can help you on your journey – wherever that may lead!


Cheers to living an energized life,
