Join Dr Elisabeth Philipps UK’s leading ECS & CBD expert on Tuesday 19th January 2021 for a CPD accredited webinar on:
“A Guide to Successful Sleep”
Research clearly demonstrates that if we do not obtain adequate sleep our physical and mental health can be adversely affected. Lack of quality sleep also reduces our resilience to infection, including viruses where “coronosomnia” is a very real side effect of the 2020 pandemic. Sleep even plays a role in obesity and conditions such as depression and anxiety.
Dr Elisabeth Philipps will explore the latest understanding around the biology of sleep connecting circadian rhythms, immune function and neuroendocrine input with the endocannabinoid system and the gut microbiome. This will be a multifunctional lifestyle approach and design programmes to improve sleep quality.
Endocannabinoid System & CBD in Health & Disease
The role of the Endocannabinoid System (ECS) is to maintain homeostasis throughout the body where it is intricately connected to a wide range of different physical and psychological functions, including:
- Metabolism and appetite
- Gut and digestive function
- Mood and stress
- Liver function
- Inflammation and pain
- Learning and memory
- Sleep cycle
- Motor control
- Skin and nerve function
- Bone health
This places imbalances within the ECS at the heart of many conditions relating to acute and chronic pain and inflammation, mood, metabolism, brain health and sleep. So why is this system not really considered as frontline support in clinical or holistic health programmes?
Dr Elisabeth Philipps will present a compelling webinar on this critical system and why it needs to be supported as one of the major contributors to health and disease. She will present the latest research and lifestyle approach to supporting the ECS. The attendees will also receive a user-friendly guide to all things phytocannabinoids and cannabidiol (CBD), the food supplement for everyone.
