The endocannabinoid system is responsible for maintaining internal homeostasis. Homeo-whatsis? That’s just a fancy word for balance. Simply put, your endocannabinoid system keeps your body in balance by making sure everything is doing its job right. 

But what happens if your endocannabinoid system isn’t doing it’s job right? Dr. Rachel Knox, MD, co-founder of the American Cannabinoid Clinics and ADVENT Academy, suggests that endocannabinoid system dysfunction may be the cause of many chronic diseases.

She believes the secret to balanced health is caring for the endocannabinoid system and shares these five tips:

1/ Eat real food.

Humans thrive on real food — single-ingredient food that is unprocessed and free of chemical additives. Real food provides the body with what it needs for healthy cells and the raw materials for building endocannabinoids. Try the 100 Days of Real Food Challenge.

2/ Supplement with adaptogenic herbs and spices.

Adaptogens are natural substances considered to help the body adapt to stress. Adaptogenic herbs and spices like ginger and turmeric are thought to soothe and tone the endocannabinoid system. You may already even have them in your kitchen!

3/ Detox.

Detoxing cleanses the body. It reduces inflammation and rids the body of harmful toxins that can cause endocannabinoid system dysfunction.

4/ Incorporate phytocannabinoids.

Phytocannabinoids (plant-based cannabinoids like CBD) have been shown to be helpful in endocannabinoid dysfunction and overall wellness.

5/ Incorporate balancing practices.

Ever experience runner’s high? That feeling of pure elation and reduced stress comes from the cannabinoid anandamide, also known as the bliss molecule, that your body naturally produces. Balancing practices like exercise, meditation, sleep, and yoga can help sooth and tone the endocannabinoid system.
