Hemp Extract and Dr. Sellman's Book
Hemp Health Revolution explores the latest research in the Hemp Extract world.
Dr. Sellman gives us the A to Z list of the many chronic illnesses or health conditions that have been proven to benefit from Hemp Extract. The hemp plant, cannabis sativa, has powerful healing, non-psychoactive constituents, known as cannabinoids or Hemp Extract. Capable of restoring balance and harmony throughout the body without any known side-effects. This amazing plant is able to restore the body to inner balance, or homeostasis, through a newly discovered system in the body called the Endocannabinoid System. The purpose of this book is to explain the emerging science of Cannabinoids and, particularly, Hemp Extract and its many proven health and healing benefits.
This is an exciting and expanding area of research as more and more scientists from around the world discover the many chronic diseases and health conditions that can be safely and successfully resolved by using Hemp Extract, orally as well as topically. We are talking about the non-psychoactive components of the agricultural hemp plant, not medical marijuana. These are two totally different forms of the cannabis plant with a different biochemical makeup.
People consume Hemp Extract because of it's ability to help their body maintain a process called homeostasis.*
Homeostasis refers to metabolic balance maintained by several processes. The human body has several homeostasis processes. Homeostasis: the medical definition from Merriam-Webster.Com: The maintenance of relatively stable internal physiological conditions (as body temperature or the pH of blood) in higher animals under fluctuating environmental conditions
A few examples homeostasis in the human body.
The body must maintain a relatively constant temperature. If it gets too hot, the body employs vasodilation to cool down. This dilates the blood vessels, allowing more heat to escape from them through the skin.
The body must regulate glucose levels to stay healthy. When glucose levels become too high, the body releases a hormone. When they become too low, the body converts the glycogen in the blood to glucose.
Toxins in the blood can disrupt the body's homeostasis. Thus, it signals the urinary system to ensure that the toxins are excreted.
- Blood Pressure
The body must maintain healthy levels of blood pressure. To do so, the brain sends signals to the heart to speed up or slow down according to the blood pressure.
The lungs control the pH amount in the body. If pH levels become unbalanced, the lungs push more or less carbon dioxide out of the diaphragm. This can raise or lower pH levels in the body.
