Learn from Dr. Joseph Feuerstein, MD, and Chef Daniel Green about the 11 rich foods that can give your body health benefits, without using any CBD or hemp products.

The ECS is a chemical communication system that performs the vital function of achieving and maintaining homeostasis, or balance, within the body.  Homeostasis is your body's efforts to keep everything in the right zone. This includes our sleep cycle, mood, memory, appetite, pain sensations, and so much more. It tries to keep your internal environment stable and optimal no matter what is going on in the environment around you.

The perfect cookbook for skeptics. It is perfectly understandable to be wary about holistic foods and their healing properties. However, when used and prepared correctly these rich foods are full of natural healing remedies that can help you ease pain, sleep better, de-stress, and so much more. Jam-packed with healing ingredients, making easy and healthy dinner ideas has never been easier. Discover wonderful uses of turmeric, basil, rosemary, flax, oregano, cloves, cinnamon, cacao, and more.
