Patient Education

What is holistic health?

At Astrid, we are a team of healthcare professionals passionate about finding balance between evidence based and plant-based medicines.

At Astrid – we are not just a premium destination — we back up “wellness” with science, nature and integrative healthcare professionals who really care about you.

What is the endocannabinoid system?

The endocannabinoid system is a biological system responsible for regulating and balancing many processes in the body, including immune response, communication between cells, appetite and metabolism, memory, and more.

Our human body can produce “cannabinoids” which work directly on our endocannabinoid system. These cannabinoids bind to receptors in our brain and other parts of the body to affect appetite, sleep, memory, pain and inflammation.

The cannabis plant produces phytocannabinoids known as CBD and THC, known as the main active ingredients used for medical purposes.

Why is patient education important as part of my journey with Astrid?

We’re big believers in de-mystifying medicine. We believe that nutrients and plant based medicines is a possibility for many patients. Or, at the very least, it could be used as an adjunct to a patients’ treatment regime.

We’re passionate about educating patients on their options and exploring how these plant based medicines biologically work in our human bodies.

By breaking down stigma and medical jargon, Astrid brings healthcare back to the basics – science, nature and medicine.
