Topics Discussed in This Episode:

  • What is CBD
  • The endocannabinoid system
  • The role that CBD plays in improving hormonal health
  • Dosing CBD
  • Chiropractic care
  • Pain management
  • How stress can manifest as physical pain


Key Takeaways:

  • Movement is an integral part of us being healthy.
  • Chiropractic care is the art and science of helping someone move better.
  • You can think of chiropractic care as manual therapy. If you think of your body as levers and muscles all working together, if you have a mechanical issue, it makes sense to take a mechanical approach to help yourself improve.
  • The endocannabinoid system is a signaling system where enzymes and hormone-type molecules are used to communicate between receptors among cells and help cells regulate their function.
  • The theories around the endocannabinoid system are that it’s there to help regulate the overall function of the body. It regulates sleep, mood, digestion, immune response, nervous system function, etc.
  • If you can improve the function of your endocannabinoid system, you have the potential to help many different functions within the human body.


Action Steps:

  • Do some research on the endocannabinoid system.
  • Change your stress response through activity and exercise.


Andrew said:

“You have to respect health from the perspective of taking a wellness approach. Nutrition is a pillar; sleep is a pillar; movement is a pillar… taking a natural approach to helping people improve those aspects of their health and well-being is a crucial part of being healthy.”


“We could help someone feel better and be looser and have more mobility, but ultimately, they really have to do something about their stress management and stress response.”
