The Natural Endocannabinoid Production In the Human Body

I have learned that not only do humans produce their own cannabinoids, but they also have receptors designed specifically to recognize and respond to the endogenous cannabinoids produced. Together, the body’s endogenous cannabinoids and the receptors that bind with them form the endocannabinoid system. This system is responsible for a number of functions within the human body, such as maintaining homeostasis.
I found that the body’s endocannabinoid system relies on the natural production of endogenous cannabinoids in order to function properly. In order to produce the proper amount of endogenous cannabinoids, the body requires a sufficient amount of Omega-3 fatty acids.
Omega-3 fatty acids are the precursor to endogenous cannabinoids. If they are in short supply, the body will not be able to manufacture the amount of endogenous cannabinoids it needs to maintain a healthy endocannabinoid system. In addition, Omega-3 fatty acids are also essential to the health of other components in the endocannabinoid system. For example, these compounds facilitate the growth and healing of CB1 receptors, which are required in order to process cannabinoids of any type. Furthermore, Omega-3s are important for the overall health of brain cells in general.
If your diet doesn’t contain a sufficient amount of Omega-3 fatty acids, your body may be unable to produce the proper amount of endogenous cannabinoids on its own. In addition, because Omega-3 fatty acids grow and repair your CB1 receptors, the cannabinoids your body does produce may not affect the endocannabinoid system as strongly as they should. For this reason, it is important for everyone to eat a diet high in Omega-3 fatty acids. Not only are these compounds important for the endocannabinoid system, but they also promote human health in general by boosting fertility, lowering cholesterol, lubricating the joints, protecting vision, improving heart health and providing a number of other important benefits.
Unfortunately, modern diets do not always contain the nutrition required to maintain the endocannabinoid system properly. In the U.S., our ratio of omega-6 omega-3 fat has been estimated to fall between 20:1 and 8:1. (Those numbers mean that we eat at least eight times more omega-6 than omega-3, and perhaps as much as 20 times more.)
Most studies suggest that a healthier ratio of omega-6 omega-3 lies between 4:1 and 2:1. Taken as a whole, the dietary circumstances described above leave the average U.S. adult with an insufficient intake of ALA (alpha-Linolenic acid) and a compromised ability to convert ALA into other health-supportive omega-3s like EPA and DHA due to excessive intake of omega-6s.
In cases where nutritional deficiencies or other problems are causing the endocannabinoid system to fail, a person may develop a condition known as “Endocannabinoid Deficiency Syndrome”. This can lead to a variety of symptoms and related conditions, including irritable bowel syndrome, fibromyalgia, migraines and more.
In the past decade, the endocannabinoid system has been implicated in a growing number of physiological functions, both in the central and peripheral nervous systems and in peripheral organs. More importantly, modulating the activity of the endocannabinoid system turned out to hold therapeutic promise in a wide range of disparate diseases and pathological conditions, ranging from mood and anxiety disorders, movement disorders such as Parkinson’s and Huntington’s disease, neuropathic pain, multiple sclerosis and spinal cord injury, to cancer, atherosclerosis, myocardial infarction, stroke, hypertension, glaucoma, obesity/metabolic syndrome, and osteoporosis, to name just a few.
Our Relax Patch
If you are suffering from Endocannabinoid Deficiency Syndrome, you may be able to improve your condition by increasing signals to the receptors and facilitate the growth of more receptors and increase the amount of endogenous cannabinoids your body produces.
The Relax Patch is a natural way to increase the concentration of cannabinoids in your body, thus leading to a more efficient and effective endocannabinoid system.
This connection from the patch to the body is made through the nervous system and the seven layers of bio energy the body naturally produces, via sympathetic resonance.
Our body’s ability to use the patch’s energy to reprogram and create the balance is unique unto the mechanism of the patch, but is a natural function of bio energy. The Relax patch is made to respond to a specific imbalance that is common in our lives and our environment, therefore the natural subtle changes from imbalance to balance is when ‘displaced energy’ can move throughout the body without any interruption.
The human body is a perfect vehicle for biological energy in the form of sub-harmonic signals, therefore no harsh chemicals or drugs are associated with the Relax Patch.
