The endocannabinoid system explained – unlocking the ECS
Come and understand the role of the endocannabinoid system in regulating and balancing our brain and body for better health.
About this Event
Stress, trauma, poor diet and lifestyle all play a big role in upsetting the sensitive balance of our brain chemistry and can cause anxiety, depression, fatigue and other symptoms that can lead to long-term chronic illness. During this workshop we will take you through the complexities of how stress impacts on our body and brain and how our natural health systems try to respond to stressors to maintain balance.
We will also be talking about the role of the endocannabinoid system (ECS) in assisting with recovery from such health conditions and returning balance to our brains. How to activate our ECS and the different ways we can treat chronic conditions like anxiety, depression, chronic fatigue, auto-immunity and others using Peruvian Maca, cacao and cannabis (including CBD).

He holds a PhD in medicinal chemistry from the University of Melbourne, Australia and the Heart Research Institute – Sydney, Australia. He has previously struggled with and overcome chronic fatigue syndrome and believes that there is currently a lack of holistic management in the conventional Western medical approach to health.
