Benefits of CBD Oil and Powder

banner Abount CBDDue to its many significant potential benefits, Cannabis and its constituents have been at the forefront of one of the most exciting scientific developments in recent years. Research on the effects of cannabinoids led scientists to the discovery of a previously unknown biochemical communication system in the human body, the Endocannabinoid System (ECS). This system has been shown to play a crucial role in regulating our physiology, mood, and everyday experiences. Endocannabinoid receptors in the brain respond pharmacologically to Cannabis constituents. The discovery of endogenous cannabinoid compounds in humans that bind to these receptors led to the investigation of Cannabis compounds for their role as an emerging strategy in the modulation of a variety of conditions.

 

Two primary endocannabinoid receptors have been identified: CB1 in 1990 and CB2 in 1993. These receptors are found predominantly in the brain and nervous system, as well as in peripheral organs and tissues of the immune system. Evidence suggests that endocannabinoids may function as both neuromodulators and immunomodulators in the immune system.

 

Generally speaking, CB1 signaling mediates neuromodulatory activities, and CB2 signaling mostly mediates immunomodulatory activities. Thus, cannabinoid signaling has been shown to be involved in multiple physiologic and homeostatic systems as well as in pathophysiologic mechanisms.

 

RESEARCH SUPPORT FOR INFLAMMATORY CONDITIONS AND CHRONIC PAIN

I’m the proud owner of these twoThe use of Cannabis for pain dates back thousands of years and more recently, significant research has evaluated the benefit of CBD and other cannabinoids for supporting those with various types of inflammation. Cannabinoids show promise as a new class of inflammation-modulating agents, via their action on cannabinoid receptors in the endocannabinoid system. Cannabinoids modulate the inflammatory response via multiple pathways, including suppression of overactive immune cells, suppression of pro-inflammatory cytokines and chemokines at inflammatory sites, and enhanced T cell activity. Many significant medical conditions are a result of, or characterized by, chronic inflammation. Researchers are constantly exploring new agents to help alleviate the symptoms of chronic pain. Emerging cannabinoid research is showing promise for supporting individuals with chronic pain of various origins.

 

RESEARCH SUPPORT FOR MOOD CONDITIONS

In humans, the stress response initiates hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis activation, changes in central nervous system activity, neuroimmune alternations, as well as other physiological changes. While the acute stress response is essential to survival, chronic, untreated stress can contribute to a variety of other serious conditions.

Stress and anxiety can go hand-in-hand, with the terms often used interchangeably. They are, however, quite different. Stress, unlike anxiety, is the response to a threat or the pressures of daily life. Anxiety is a possible adverse reaction to stress, typically manifesting as fear or apprehension, and can present with physical symptoms such as racing heart, pain, shortness of breath, and/or dizziness. Generally, stress subsides after the stressor is removed, while anxiety symptoms can persist for six months or longer.

The endocannabinoid system serves to constrain HPA axis activity during times of stress. The involvement of signaling molecules (cytokines and chemokines) in the endocannabinoid-mediated stress response are of importance when considering therapeutic strategies. Animal studies have investigated endocannabinoid signaling under conditions of repeated stress and have demonstrated that disrupted signaling may be associated with decreased ability to adapt to chronic stress. In animals, CBD has been shown, via mediation of the endocannabinoid system, to promote adaptation to stress and its physiological effects.

 

RESEARCH SUPPORT FOR NEUROLOGICAL CONDITIONS

Over 400,000 people in the United States suffer from multiple sclerosis (MS), with approximately 200 new cases diagnosed each week. Diagnosis usually occurs between the ages of 20 – 40, but MS also affects children and the aged. MS is a chronic, progressive disease involving damage to the sheaths of nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord. Symptoms vary, but may include impairment of speech and of muscular coordination, numbness, nerve pain, muscle spasticity, blurred vision, and severe fatigue. Recent research on cannabidiol shows it to be neuroprotective in those with MS and other neurological conditions such as Parkinson’s disease and spinal cord injury. It is thought to exert this effect by regulating inflammation in the nerves and muscles with pain due to spinal cord injury.

DOES BLOOD TYPE DETERMINE WHAT YOU SHOULD EAT?

red blood molecules image

It has been long known that your blood type is uniquely related to what foods you should eat. Eating according to your blood type positively affects your overall health, resistance to disease, longevity, vital force and emotional stability. Where one food can be a source of energy and health to some, the same food can weaken and disrupt normal constitutional functioning in others.

More simply said, “One man’s food is another man’s poison”. Our diet is already determined by our genetics; that is, our blood type. By eating according to our blood type, we maximize our body’s ability to absorb nutrients, generate energy, detoxify and repair our cells.

So, is there one diet that fits all? The answer is an unequivocal No! For this reason some people are able to lose weight on certain diets while others cannot. Certain people are more prone to certain diseases and thereby, especially need to eat according to their blood type in order to discourage disease. It has been said that blood type is a powerful genetic fingerprint just as is your DNA. Eating according to your blood type will help you retain health and vigor, maintain an ideal weight and retard aging.Logo Blood Type

Are you blood type A, B, AB or O? By knowing your blood type, a diet can be designed for you to meet your dietary needs.

Lifestyle Medicine, Aging and TA-65MD

Daily routine has a huge effect on health and wellness. Quality of nutrition, interpersonal relations, psychological habits, sleep and exercise are more important determinants of health than our genetics.

 

telomeres

As conventional medicine has imposed more potent interventions, the emphasis on lifestyle has been superseded by drugs and surgery. It is becoming increasingly clear that the outcomes of these approaches are less and less desirable and Lifestyle Medicine or Health Psychology is becoming the treatment of choice. Back in the 1980’s lifestyle medicine was referred to as Holistic Health. Lifestyle alterations can make a huge impact on health, well being and cognitive functioning. The National Center for Alternative & Complementary Medicine is a good resource for information on this kind of treatment.

However, everything is not lifestyle. For example, the obesity epidemic may not be just a matter of lifestyle because animals are also getting heavier. Over the past several decades, average mid-life body weights have risen among primates and rodents living in research colonies, as well as among feral rodents and domestic dogs and cats. The consistency of these findings among animals living in varying environments suggests the possibility that the causes of increasing body weight may involve several as-yet unidentified and/or poorly understood factors (e.g. environmental toxins, viral pathogens, epigenetic factors).

As we age, all physical and most cognitive functions tend to decline. The good news is that in the cognitive realm, wisdom and knowledge can, under the right circumstances, continue to increase throughout the lifespan. Indeed, it is said that if there were an Olympic event for wisdom, it would be won by octogenarians. The elderly may have a greater capacity to regulate emotion. Many aspects of physical fitness can be improved at any age. Some thirty-five years ago during a graduate course in Lifespan Developmental Psychology I was ridiculed by my well authored professor for suggesting that by the year 2000 we would begin to see a dramatic rise in the number of centenarians. It now appears his condemnation may have been overly shortsighted.

There are many ways we can improve and extend our lifespan. However, one of the most excitingly new methods for doing this is with the discovery of the “Immortality Enzyme”. This enzyme can reverse aging in every cell in our bodies. New research shows that there is one main cause behind aging and it is the continuing process of Telomere Shortening.

Telomere caps

The telomere is sort of a cap at the end of each strand of our DNA that keeps the chromosome from unraveling after each cell division. Each time the cell divides the telomere becomes a little shorter. When there is no longer enough telomere or end cap to hold the DNA together chronic health problems begin to manifest. Shortened telomeres may manifest in such health conditions as cancer, atherosclerosis, Alzheimer’s disease, osteoarthritis, mascular degeneration, skin aging, risk of heart attack and many more life threatening conditions.

Until now, science thought it was impossible to reverse telomere length and hence reverse aging. When the “immortality enzyme” was discovered thinking changed and it appears it is now possible to halt and even reverse aging to some degree.

This miracle enzyme is called telomerase. Telomerase causes the telomeres at the end of the chromosomes to grow longer; thereby, strengthening the integrity of the chromosomal structure. As we age, we produce less and less telomerase until the telomerase gene shuts off. We can now reactivate our telomerase gene with TA-65.

Are you living a lifestyle that promotes healthy telomeres and longer cell life?
Did you know that telomere length is an indicator of how healthy you are as you get older?
Do you know how long your telomeres are?

TA-65 was given to a sample of volunteers after measuring their levels of telomerase. At the end of the study, their levels of telomerase were once again measured and what the researchers found was amazing. The telomerase levels of the study group tripled! Their eyesight improved, their sexual performance was enhanced, skin became smoother, and their immune systems were stronger. The result being, increasing telomerase lengthens shortened telomeres and improves overall health.

TA-65 is manufactured by T.A. Sciences and is a patented extract from the Chinese herb Astragalus. Does it really work to increase telomere length? An independent research company in Reno, Nevada, Sierra Sciences says it does. They proved that TA-65 does activate telomerase.
