SATURDAY, MAY 14, 2016 – Clinical herbalist Justin Garner from Sweet Flag Medicinals Herbal Clinic & Apothecary in Brattleboro, VT, rejoins Becky on WKBK, this time for a lively discussion surrounding holistic approaches to opiate withdrawal – as Justin says,
“I think there are a lot of people who don’t know they can take opioid dependence into their own hands.”
Holistic approaches to opiate withdrawal - as Justin says,
"I think there are a lot of people who don't know they can take opioid dependence into their own hands."
Included in the discussion but not limited to:
Becky says, Nourish your ENDOCANNABINOID system - "endo" means you make these yourself - healthy human breast milk is sky-high rich with cannabis! - but you might not be making enough yourself, in which case God gave us plant sources to fill in the gaps:
Functional Interaction between Opioid and Cannabidiol Receptors in Drug Self-Administration - The Journal of Neuroscience
Cannabis Use Reduced Opiate Withdrawal Symptoms - Thomas Jefferson University Study
MILKY OAT SEED - Avena sativa
Then, call in with a health issue you are curious about! Justin and Becky will each take a "stab" at it panel-discussion style.
We also thought it might be fun to explore further last Saturday's subject SEX - and the widespread hormonal health problems affecting not only our ZEST but our overall HEALTH.
Today, in the “SPOTLIGHT!”
