The body produces its own endocannabinoids

In this episode, Carrie goes into detail about what the Endocannabinoid System is, how the name came about as well as the function of the system has on the human body.

We touch on how the Endocannabinoid system and their receptors are found throughout the body; in the brain, organs, connective tissues, glands, and immune cells. With its complex actions in our immune system, nervous system, and virtually all of the body’s organs, the endocannabinoids are literally a bridge between body and mind. Having an effect on managing conditions like chronic pain, fibromyalgia, arthritis, epilepsy, movement disorders like Parkinson’s and multiple sclerosis. Even autism spectrum disorder, IBD, IBS and sleep disorder.

Carrie’s tips on how we can build and maintain our endocannabinoid system on a daily basis.

  1. Start with a ‘starting goal’- play with your sleep – regular wake up and bedtime should be a priority.
  2. Play with food and or Exercise – incorporate Omega 3 oil to be added to your diet. 
  3. Exercise or move your body in anyway which suits you and your lifestyle – example dancing in your living room could be one way. 
  4. For any additional help, seeking help from a heath practitioner is a great way to get further help and support. 

Ep. 022 – Knowing your worth – The Self-Worth Movement w/ Farah Mak The Let me take a Selfie Podcast

Initially the self-wort moment was created from a poem Farah wrote called she shines which was love letter to herself and a call to arms. Farah even had a vision to turn the poem into a short film, knowing she could touch and change many lives. After years, her vison came to light with the short film now in pre-production as well as a feature film around multiple stories to be released in 2022. Self-worth can be stifled by many things; trauma, abandonment, bullying, sickness, grief and so much more. Through Farah’s road to self-validation was not easy. Regaining her self-worth was transformational. It helped her achieve hopes and dreams, and she wants to share this with women and girls around the world and to empower and understand their true worth.   For show notes, visit: https://benjaminrashleigh.com/ep-022-knowing-your-worth-the-self-worth-movement/
