Your body is a complex microcosmic community of organisms that work together to keep you functioning. Wellness is the quality or state where this community is functioning as it should.
The human body is an amazing thing, constantly reacting to changing external stimulus all while working to maintain a state of homeostasis within. When this system is disrupted, your body will communicate this with you in an effort to re-establish this state of wellness.
The mechanism of action for many modern pharmaceuticals is to dull this complex chemical communication system to establish a short-term solution for an ailment. Perhaps there is a reason you feel this way, and just maybe it is your body giving you the signal that something needs to change.
Don’t dull the senses; rather amplify and find the long-term solutions to why your body is struggling to maintain that state of homeostasis.
Your endocannabinoid system acts not only to regulate homeostasis but also as a bridge for mind-body healing. While cannabis can be an intense experience; and for some uncomfortable, I have found that the times I feel anxious from cannabis are the times that I must address something in my life.
If you are killing it in life without cannabis, more power to you. If you are struggling and haven’t found a solution that works for you, I encourage you to educate yourself about the benefits of cannabis to see if it can work for you just as it has worked for so many others.
Above all, make a promise today that you will try to listen to your body just a little more.
