A symptom is your bodies “Last Resort”…😖😔😷
If you are experiencing a negative symptom or side effect, be it mild or severe, it is highly likely that the imbalance has been there much longer than you think!
Our bodies are incredible at compensating for deficiencies and injuries but they can only stretch and bend so far…
The ECS is complex and so is the solution to our health challenges…
It may be complex…but its also EASY because our bodies do most of the work!😅
What functions does our ECS influence?
Research from trusted sources has linked our Endocannabinoid System to the following processes:
- Appetite and digestion
- Chronic pain
- Inflammation and other immune responses
- Learning and memory
- Motor control
- Cardiovascular system function
- Muscle formation
- Bone remodelling and growth
- Liver function
- Reproductive System function
- Skin and Nerve function
How does this awareness effect my approach to my health?
Understanding the complex and broad influence of our ECS may help us to understand better what happens in our bodies when we incorporate exo-cannabinoids (cannabinoids provided by plants)
As you can see from the list above, our bodies have an intricate balance of systems that all effect each other in a myriad of ways.
When we experience a SYMPTOM the underlying cause of that symptom may be located among many of our systems and may require time for imbalances to be resolved on a number of levels.
This understanding is crucial to creating permanent change and your success with CBD.
You see we are used to feeling discomfort and then taking something that masks that discomfort.
At ‘best’ you may be working with one specific system (prescription medication), which in turn disrupts the balance in other areas with disturbingly destructive side effects…( add another script here to deal with side effect 1,2,3) sound familiar?
When taking CBD, wether it is for the relief discomfort or dis-ease or for maintaining your already high level of health, it is important that you take it consistently and give your body time to reset your ECS and work through the multiple systems that may need balancing.
Be patient with yourself and commit to this rewarding and transformation process.
So before you “throw in the towel” with CBD after a few days or even weeks…. consider the unfathomable complexity of your body and trust that your Master regulatory system – (your ECS) is working hard to re-establish balance and reduce inflammation in its many forms throughout your entire body and brain…
It is likely it has taken years (or a lifetime) for your body to adjust and compensate for the various challenges we throw at it daily…and finally something has to give…A symptom is your bodies last resort…it’s way of saying…I can no longer mask or compensate for this imbalance…something has to change. NOW.
Even better, let’s address the underlying imbalances BEFORE you manifest a symptom! 👏
CBD is amazing for assisting your body to regulate those changes internally but we also need to consider what environmental or conscious change can we incorporate to support our well-being…
And that’s what we talk about in my 1-1 consultations.
