Hulk Hogan Reveals Shocking Secrets
Recently, Hulk Hogan sat down for an interview with Muscle and Health’s editor in chief, Danni Levy. During the interview, Hulk changed Levy’s name, talked about music and cars, and also explained how he broke what he calls a “vicious cycle” of prescriptions drugs and surgeries.
At the beginning of the interview, Hogan decided to call Levy “D Mania” while she was interviewing him at his Hangout in Clearwater Beach, Florida. Then, he opened up about how he quit drinking alcohol and taking prescription drugs.
About 7 months ago, Hulk decided to quit drinking alcohol. It turns out that it wasn’t really hard for him to do because, as he put it, “I don’t have an addictive personality.” He explained that he “was at a New Year’s Eve party and saw a bunch of stuff that I didn’t condone or like. I saw myself in this environment, and I went, ‘You know what? I don’t know how I got here, but I’m done.'” That’s all it took for Hulk to decide to give up alcohol for good. He added, “It feels much better to be so clear-headed. I’m no longer tempted to drink alcohol.”
Hulk also shared that he has lost 40 pounds since he stopped drinking alcohol. He explained that he used to enjoy eating junk food after a night of drinking, but now that he’s not drinking, he’s no longer craving the late night junk food binge either.
Besides giving up alcohol, Hulk has also found an alternative to taking prescription medication for pain. He explained, “There was a period of time, about five or six years ago, where I was in crazy pain to the extent I couldn’t even function. When you have back surgery, it takes a good year for your body to recover, yet they were cutting on me every four months. I needed pain meds at that stage, that’s for sure. But once things started to wind down, they continued giving me the same meds.”
At first, Hulk took the pain medication because it was prescribed to him, but he eventually realized that he wasn’t in that much pain anymore and didn’t need the prescription medication to manage the pain.
Instead of taking prescription pain medication, Hulk now claims CBD is all he needs. He explained, “Then the CBD took me to a place where my joints don’t hurt so much when I wake up. When I pick weights up, I don’t have to do four or five sets before things start to become clear. I can tell as soon as the CBD hits my system, it calms everything down. The inflammation instantly went away with CBD. Usually, my wrists are swollen like crazy by the end of the day. Now they’re fine. I noticed an immediate change as soon as I started on it.”
