Come and learn about how stress impacts our brain and natural plant-based ways to manage it.

Stress, trauma, poor diet and lifestyle all play a big role in upsetting the sensitive balance of our brain chemistry and can cause anxiety, depression, fatigue and other symptoms that can lead to long-term chronic illness.

During this workshop we will take you through the complexities of how stress impacts on the balance in our body and brain and how our natural health systems try to respond to stressors to maintain balance.

We will also be talking about the role of the endocannabinoid system in regulating and balancing our brain and body. How to activate our endocannabinoid system and the different ways we can treat chronic conditions like anxiety, depression, chronic fatigue, auto-immunity and others using Peruvian Maca and cannabinoids (including CBD and cannabis).

Recent studies have shown that maca contains molecules that increase our natural cannabinoid production and can improve our mental health as a natural antidepressant. Book your spot to learn more...
