323 – The Endocannabinoid System – Part 5 – Endo Inflame

This is the fifth and final interview with Dr. Jeffrey Burke on the Endocannabinoid support products from Emerald Health Bioceuticals. This has been a fascinating and in-depth look at the endocannabinoid system and at how nutritional herbs provide deep support. CLICK HERE for access to all the interviews with Dr. Jeffrey Burke.
If you deal with pain and inflammation then it is in your interest to explore the world of nutritional solutions. Remember that pain and inflammation are symptoms of underlying disorder. Reducing pain and inflammation is important especially for those with chronic conditions. Using products like Endo Inflame can provide relief and comfort, which are very important, but they often don’t address underlying issues. For example, if you have joint pain for whatever reason, it is often necessary to seek relief from the pain. But for long term success you must also support the inflamed system or tissues. In the joint pain example, you want to support bones, tendons, ligaments, cartilage, collagen, synovial fluid, circulation, muscles etc.

321 – Peace Possible and the Food Movement

Dr. Weiss has taken the road less traveled when it comes to aiding poor and impoverished children around the world. He started by asking the question “What causes youth to become radicalized and fall prey to the terrorists groups to which they become aligned?” This is a very profound question and the answer is just as profound.Dr. Weiss has set up numerous operations around the globe which focus on providing what these communities need in order to reverse the trend to radicalization. Ultimately the solution involves creating environments where people have opportunity to live healthy and productive lives. Proper and targeted nutrition can make a huge difference. It is impossible to gain an education and become a productive adult when day to day circumstances make life dangerous. Lack of the essential factors of life make it nearly impossible not to be adversely affected.
