Breaking down plant and process

“We’re out of options.”  Many clients say this when they make an appointment.  Pharmaceuticals don’t help much and side effects cause the need for more medications. Many patients have quite the list, but our bodies work better the fewer pills we take. Pain, arthritis, digestion, mental health, neurological or immune issues make people feel they have no choice, so they take pills. 

 

But what if there is a more natural way? A holistic path out of pain and discomfort, where you use your body’s own compensatory mechanisms. Give your body fuel with nutrition emphasizing whole foods to minimize sugars, get yourself moving and stretching again, sleep more regularly, talk about your worries, and truly connect with others. Find your purpose – it propels everything. 

 

Traditional medicine does a poor job emphasizing this path, because it is not reimbursed by our ‘sick care’ system. Holistic practitioners use this approach with committed clients, but it takes time. Most people give up because they lose patience. But the good news for you, is that there is a way to expedite the holistic path –  supplementing the endocannabinoid system.  

 

You are hard wired for this plant.  We can supplement and heal the endocannabinoid system, and that will lead you to better health!

 

“Eat, Sleep, Relax, Forget, Protect”;  Vincenzo Di Marzo, Italian Scientist on the importance of the ECS.

The endocannabinoid system is the master regulator which brings your cells into balance with more receptors than for any other neurotransmitter system in your body.

Cannabinoids (from your body or the cannabis plant) help balance your:

 

  • Mood regulation

  • Appetite

  • Memory

  • Inflammation & Immune

  • Pain perceptions

  • Muscle tone & movement

  • Extinction of bad memories

  • Protection of nerves & brain  

  •  

 

 

What happens when this system gets disrupted and stops working?

 

 

  • Cancers

  • Neurological disorders like Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, MS, and seizures

  • Auto-immune disease like Fibromyalgia, Arthritis, and migraines

  • Mood disorders like anxiety, depression, PTSD, OCD, & insomnia

  • Gastrointestinal distress like Crohn’s and IBS

  • Endocrine disorders like diabetes, obesity, and bone loss

 

 

 

If you could reset your “ECS”, endocannabinoid system, would you do it?  

 

Holistic Caring   clients want to answer yes – but with help. Visiting the ‘Pot Doc’ will get you the ID card to go to the dispensary with the recreational users.  That system is built for the user that wants to relax or amp up – not to guide medical patients who need to get well. Enter your Holistic Caring   Coach.

 

Through our personal assessment process, we uncover what you need to add, or take away to promote healing and wholeness, and help you do so. 

 

 

 

Holistic Caring   Coaches address your;

 

  • Nutritional intake with specific recommendations to boost your ECS

  • Movement, range of motion, strength, flexibility 

  • Connection, spirituality, purpose, and internal well being 

  • Pain – acute or chronic by creating a plan to turn down the signaling

  • Sleep – help achieve restorative sleep, critical to everything else 

 

 

 

The endocannabinoid (ECS) advantage:

 

There is a shortcut  – the ECS, or endocannabinoid system supplementation.  Phytocannabinoids from the Cannabis plant will mimic your endogenous compounds when they’re in short supply. Give your body what it needs at a cellular level and the body starts to heal itself.  We teach you exactly how to shop, dose, and titrate all of these medicines. 

 

 

The Holistic Caring   treatment plans integrate;

 

  • Traditional medical path, medications, and treatments

  • Holistic & natural approaches to consider and adopt

  • Cannabinoid supplements in specific ratios, dosing, frequency

 

Cannabis medicine takes time & tweaking to find what is right for you.  What works for your neighbor may not work for you because everyone has a different ECS. Have you ever smoked pot?  Do you remember your friend laughing and skipping, and you got paranoid or sleepy?  Same medicine, different reactions. Your endocannabinoid system is set to a different tone than anyone else’s, and we need to find what will balance you.

 

Our holistic medicine approach will uncover lifestyle changes to make, and what cannabinoid supplements to try. Effectiveness is gauged by the week, and we will check in with you to determine what works, what doesn’t, and how to adjust until we make progress. We’ll connect you with dispensaries or producers that meet our standard of care with safe, lab tested products that give you the best value for healing. If you’re sick, you need professional and supportive guidance. We are the gateway that allows your peace of mind. 

 

 

 

Options for medical cannabis – the many ways to supplement your ECS:

 

  • Tinctures, concentrates, and extracted oils

  • Micro dosed edibles, capsules, and long acting remedies

  • Vaporization, oral sprays, and short acting relief

  • Topicals, gels, and transdermal patches

  • Suppositories of CBD or THC to battle illness without any high

  • A combination approach using everything above with spaced dosing

 

 

 

The legal medical cannabis industry in America

 

Since 1937 the federal government removed access to cannabis because of racism, corporate interests, and ignorance. In 1970 cannabis was placed into Schedule 1 of the Controlled Substance Act to state it has no medical purposes and is highly abusive. This made it a felony to possess and made it impossible to use as medicine. Underground movements survived, and folk medicines to heal naturally were hidden. In 1996 California passed Prop 215, ushering in the medical cannabis industry of today. California passed proposition 64 in 2016, making cannabis accessible to all above 21.  Safeguards for effective use in 33 legalized states make this approachable now for you as a patient, and we will help you stay safe, compliant, and comfortable in the system.  

 

 

Over 20,000 medical studies on cannabis exist in the National Institute for Health’s database;   https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/?term=cannabinoid

We can help you research your specifics and combine field knowledge with data to create a logical plan for you.   https://www.cannabisreports.com/cannabis-studies

 

Polling shows 87% of American’s favor medical use, and 66% favor recreational use of cannabis.  The crisis in our healthcare system shows us that self-care is the best way forward in the post-COVID world. Modulating the ECS is the most effective and efficient way forward to better health and wellbeing.  

Costs are escalating, cancer cures don’t cure, and 130 people die every day from opiates which doctors increasingly won’t even prescribe. Heart disease, cancer, and stroke – the top 3 conditions in America are helped by boosting the ECS to work by reducing inflammation, inducing apoptosis, and aiding neuroprotection.   Our own health is in our hands – like never before. Be smart in this approach. 

 

High deductible plans are now the norm. Covered California  offers deductibles this year of $6,300 for an individual, and $12,600 for a family. RX deductibles are separate! You pay your premiums, and shoulder all the costs before insurance kicks in. The wellness path with cannabinoids gives you the best shot at healing with the least cost, and the opportunity to truly heal!

 

You have a right to try cannabis as medicine. Holistic Caring   is the path. We are the access point because we educate, guide, and support you in trying these various medicines. Your health & your life depend on this, and we honor that. Having someone to help you steer through the system will save you time, money, and give you hope to live a longer, fuller life!  The #1 hurdle for patients in accessing medical cannabis is fear and not knowing where to turn for sound, credible advice.
