The Endocannabinoid System
The Endocannabinoid System (ECS) is now recognised as the master regulatory system. Almost every non-insect life form on the planet has an ECS. A functional ECS is present through all stages of embryonic development, followed by a very basic stomach and somewhat of a nervous system.
The ECS is an ancient biological system, the oldest system in our bodies, every system that follows has derived and developed from the ECS. The ECS is the only system in the body that can touch every cell, which allows it to connect the mind and body as one, any imbalances in your ECS will most certainly create problems with the other systems. Keeping this system in perfect balance (also known as homeostasis) is the most crucial aspect of healthy living.
Aside from today’s known diseases and the pharmaceutical options that claim to be designed to treat them, there are many people who are not formally diagnosed as ill but still exhibit signs of imperfect health such as mental fog and lack of energy or those who have a disconnected mindset who feel that modern synthetic medicine may impair their health, rendering them completely ineffective due to the side effects.
The ECS is a chemical messaging system which plays a very important regulatory role in the secretion of hormones related to reproductive functions and response to stress and energy homeostasis. When an organism is in homeostasis there is an absence of disease. If an organism is not in perfect homeostasis then there will be some level of disease. Restoring the ECS back into perfect homeostasis forces all diseases into remission. This makes the Endocannabinoid System our natural pharmacological target for restoring overall health, it is all about cell communication and ensuring everything works as it should, keeping your body in a disease-free state with a clear and focused mind.
