In this course you will learn about The Endocannabinoid System (ECS). You will learn the role the ECS plays in every physiological system in the human body.
Learn About The Endocannabinoid System
In this online course you will learn all about the Endocannabinoid System, or ECS, and the role it plays in controlling the human physiological system. The ECS enables the sharing of information which allows individual cells to “talk” to each other. Although the ECS is 600 million years old, it was discovered relatively recently and still has limited scientific research. Similar to a “lock and key”, cannabinoids fit directly into our CB1 and CB2 receptors. Each combination has different healing properties that are performed on the body.
Did you know that the Endocannabinoid System helps control basic metabolic function? Or that the ECS allows human cells to communicate with each other? The ECS is one of the main mechanisms all mammals utilize to stay in physiochemical balance and free from disease. Low levels of chemicals produced by the ECS can be associated with ailments including, but not limited to, migraines, IBS, fibromyalgia, PTSD, infertility, complex regional pain syndrome and liver fibrosis.
This course includes an overview of the ECS by Dr. Jake Felice. Also included are outlines of the CB1 and CB2 receptors, anandamide and 2-AG. To understand how cannabinoids fit with our bodies, this online course will also discuss micro-dosing, neuroprotectants and The Entourage Effect. Additional white paper research, definitions and statistics related to the ECS will be presented. Downloadable infographics of the ECS and 2 versions of the Medical Marijuana 411 Treatment Guide are also includes in this course.
Dr. Jake Felice
Dr. Jake Felice, ND, LMP, specializes in the treatment of chronic pain and the improvement of human performance. He is a graduate and adjunct professor of Bastyr University, where he has taught Advanced Soft-Tissue Manipulation and currently teaches Radiographic Lab Interpretation. Dr. Felice is a recognized cannabis expert and is on the advisory board for The Cannabis Defense Coalition in Washington state. Dr. Felice earned his undergraduate degree from Penn State University where he played varsity lacrosse and majored in psychology with a focus on the study of peak human performance.
Dr. Felice’s comprehensive approach blends traditional healing practices with the best of modern science. “I believe that memory, emotions, and entrenched neural patterns play an enormous role in how the mind perceives pain” he says. “One way to approach these patterns is through the use of advanced cranial sacral therapy and visceral manipulation. These treatments are unique because they work with both the physical body and our mental awareness at the same time. Therapy sessions focus on understanding how pain influences body movement, and on how our relaxation and fear/pain responses affect these patterns. This direct experience eases pain and helps patients learn quickly about the direct and profound connection between our bodies and our minds.”
Dr. Felice lived in Japan and Asia for six years, studying Zen-shiatsu, Tai-chi, and earning a 3rd degree black belt in Aikido. He has performed thousands of hours of manual therapy, and combines his insights into the martial arts to gain a unique perspective on the connection between pain and the mind-body connection.
Dr. Felice believes that the renewal of health on a deep level requires a shift in behavior, and a change in awareness. “I strongly believe that a large part of health is about personal transformation”, he says. “With chronic pain, the healing processes can be so different for each individual that it requires a very personalized approach. True, long term changes are made on all levels: physical, mental, emotional and spiritual.”
Dr. Jake Felice’s clinic offers natural solutions for chronic pain and personal performance. Therapies include manual medicine, cranial-sacral therapy, visceral manipulation, and medical cannabis evaluations.
