The word "cannabinoid" can be jarring, but it doesn't mean what you think. We have a whole system named after pot called the endocannabinoid system (ECS), composed of receptors and enzymes that help regulate a variety of our bodily functions. "Endocannabinoid" means cannabis-like substances that naturally occur inside us. The ECS is a chemical communication system that performs the vital function of achieving and maintaining homeostasis, or balance, within the body. Homeostasis is your body's efforts to keep everything in the right zone. This includes our sleep cycle, mood, memory, appetite, pain sensations, and so much more.
Discover wonderful uses of turmeric, basil, rosemary, flax, oregano, cloves, cinnamon, cacao, and more. It is perfectly understandable to be wary about holistic foods and their healing properties. However, when used and prepared correctly these rich foods are full of natural healing remedies that can help you ease pain, sleep better, de-stress, and so much more. Jam-packed with healing ingredients, making easy and healthy dinner ideas has never been easier.
