 Cultivating Cannabis  

The recent research of hemp plant components (cannabis) could be one of the greatest hidden discoveries in human physiology within the last 50 years.
— -Kassandra

Rise Sister. Rise






 Historically, the Endocannabinoid System (ECS) was rediscovered in 1988, which is recent considering its estimated 600 million year origin.

The ECS  plays a central role in the orchestration, maintenance and balance of optimal health and healing – defined as homeostasis.

 YES, your beautiful biology makes it’s own network of endocannabinoids, knowns and the “ECS," which optimizes the health of every cell, tissue and organ.

    Research states these common ailments may be tied to an endo-cannabinoid deficiency.



    To FEEL BETTER, we have to FILL THE GAP. 

    If you're deficient in endo-cannabinoids ("endo" meaning inside), it is critical to supplement with phyto-cannabinoids ("phyto" meaning plant) from the cannabis plant just like you may supplement any other nutrient deficiency by applying it internally- daily.

      Your KEY Players In the Mix


    What are Phyto-Cannabinoids?
    Outer: has a powerful ability to protect the skin and neutralize free radicals that lead to premature aging.

    Inner:  Phyto-cannabinoid (CBD) hemp plant extract  directly enhances our   endocannabinoid system (ECS) -which is a living neural network regulating the  intrinsic tissue  in our body  and  is made up of millions of receptor sites which signal molecules and hormones throughout our body to either activate healing or signal discomfort.

    Because the ECS regulates homeostasis, an imbalance could be the underlying cause behind many disorders from inflammatory and autoimmune diseases to depression, fatigue, and chronic pain.

    When activated, CBD receptor sites produce a heightened sense of well-being, elevated health, and enhanced energy.   Learn more here!

    How a Cannabinoid Deficiency Directly Effects Your Health. It's critical...

    Hello friends., this is critical. 

    Are you, or someone you know -- deficient in cannabinoids?

    Canna What?

    Politics aside, there's a lot of BUZZ surrounding a broad health phenomenon (or possibly an epidemic?) currently coming to light and diligently being studied. 

    The incredible biological findings may explain why YOU experience everyday symptoms such as anxiety, sleep issues, psoriasis - and migraines.

     It all connects. 

    Cannibas + Women's Health.png

    Is Cannabis a Drug or Missing Nutrient?
    Most of us do our best to keep our immune systems healthy, but what if there were another physiological system that has been hidden and deeply impacting a host of health issues?     

    I’m sure you’d agree, there is no lack of vitamins on the market and choosing the best quality to the right form is daunting. 

    "Do they work?  Are you getting the active components delivered where necessary for results? "

    Let’s dive deep and learn about cannabis and how this holy plant with biomimetic phyto-nutrients is re-emerging for restoration and relief from everyday modern day stressors.

    FIRST… to understand why and how we’re in “lack,” we must first learn about the MASTER SYSTEM and its network.

    "Evidence proves that the endocannabinoid system—a family of endogenous ligands, receptors, and enzymes—isn’t exclusive to the brain.

    It is present everywhere  -  the heart, liver, pancreas, skin, reproductive tract, you name it.

    Disrupted endocannabinoid signaling has been associated with many disorders, including diabetes, hypertension, infertility, liver disease, and more.  It looks to be regulating every physiological system in the body,” says DiPatrizio.

    Untitled design.png

    For many, the first experience to cannabinoids were from your mother's breast.  The amazing mind and body nourishment instantly calms the baby's body with the attributes 

    If momma had them, that means each of us withhold endocannabinoids that fulfills our largest neurotransmitter system within our body acting as a lock and key receptor nourishment to deliver sound sleep cycles, healthy metabolism and immune and neuro-protective attributes.

    Since the ECS  is the body’s master network of chemical compounds and receptors- it's important to keep it optomized to maintain a balance in the body.

    The ECS needs essential resources to fire neurons to function properly. 

    Cannabis contains plant based flavonoids that when depleted our bodies - potentially break down and weaken genetic signaling resulting in inflammation – which leads to health issues. 

    I'll share more below how our Evoq CBD formula's are created to activate a clear firing of CB1 and CB2 receptors.


    Untitled design (4).png


    Your Cerebral Health

     Cannabinoids main role in the brain is to regulate neurotransmitter function (keeping you happy).  If there’s too much of one  neurotransmitter, your cannabinoid storage will bring it down, if there’s too little it steps in to shoot it up! 

    Your ECS system basically up regulates or down regulates when necessary.

    But.. what if it all breaks down

    "Now that is NO GOOD."

    Growing evidence suggests the symptoms of everyday stress, insomnia, adult acne, psoriasis to cancer can be helped through internal and topical cannabinoid (CBD) supplementation.

    Fun Factoid!  
    There are more endocannabinoids in your body than dopamine, serotonin, epinephrine, glutamate or GABA.

    Untitled design (6).png

    What goes up - must come down.

    Your body can have too much or too little signaling of any of these neurotransmitter systems, leading to disease.   

    More Practically Speaking
    Depression suggests a deficiency in serotonin, and western medicine over prescribes and treats with antidepressants to raise serotonin levels.

    Alzheimer’s is a deficiency in acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter that modulates memory, decision making and wakefulness.

    Deficient cannabinoid symptoms being studied:

    • Increased sensitivity to pain
    • Skin ailments
    • Acne
    • Psoriasis and eczema  
    • Anxiety and depression
    • Memory loss
    • Autism
    • Sleep issues
    • Heavy Menstrual cramps
    • + and more ...

    Furthermore, these areas of health are inhibited when in lack:

    • Healthy nervous system
    •  Neuron protection against disease
    • Decreased Synaptic Activity  (brain’s ability to strengthen or weaken)
    • Pain & reward system imbalance
    • Emotional positive-to-negative experienced state imbalance
    • Arousal - va-va-voom imbalance
    • Motivation 
    • And more.

    It gets tricky.  You may actually have enough endocannabinoids and cannabinoid receptors, but due to the fact that 80% of our personal genetic code is effected by our lifestyle and ecosystem.

    Chances are there is a “error message” that turns on or off accurate cannabinoid signaling all-together.

    How to Choose a Functional Medicine Doctor

    Hey YOU!  

    While behind the styling chair on the daily, your services at Beauty Ecology Organic Salon are fueled by being a lifelong Functional Medicine student and lifestyle coach. 

    Ive witnessed hundreds of women's frustration and struggle when trying to find answers to a hormonal imbalance, hair loss and chronic fatigue. 

    I hear ya......YOU simply want a practitioner that see's them uniquely.   

    Enjoy this post originally shared by Dr. Jill Carnahan as she shares TOP TIPS.


    Most relate to the frustrating situation of making an appointment to see their doctor, only for the appointment to start an hour or more later. Then, after a very rushed visit, being sent home with a prescription and no new insight into what exactly is happening with their health.

    This is a cycle that focuses on symptoms, ignores underlying causes, and it’s not one person’s fault. Our conventional medical system arose from the treatment of acute illnesses. It’s a good thing, too! Our modern medicine successfully treats many acute and infectious diseases.

    The problem is now when most people get sick, it’s no longer an acute illness that sends them to the doctor. Chronic conditions are on the rise and proper diagnosis and treatment of these diseases requires more than a 15-minute appointment.

    Comprehensive medical histories, lab work, and a broad understanding of the body and its metabolic processes are needed. I like to think of it as detective work.

    Clues are collected and a diagnosis is revealed. Because finding the root cause of symptoms is the foundation of integrative and functional medicine treatments involve completely addressing underlying issues; infectious, toxic, genetic, nutritional, metabolic, and others.

    When you address the root cause, there’s a much better chance of reversing or eliminating the condition altogether.

      Here are my tips for finding the doctor best for you and I hope it helps you on your journey to better health!



    Types of Functional Medicine Practitioners

    There are different types of practitioners that specialize in integrative and functional medicine.

    • Medical Doctor (M.D.) – A doctor who first went through traditional medical school and then added training and education in integrative and functional medicine. They will have the most flexibility in ordering tests and prescribing medications.
    • Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine (D.O.) – This is a doctor who, like an M.D. has a wide range of services they are able to offer. This means they can prescribe medication, and are even able to become surgeons. They generally focus on the body as a whole.
    • Nurse Practitioner (N.P.) – Many people don’t realize that nurse practitioners in many ways have similar abilities as doctors. They are able to own and operate their own practices and can also prescribe medications.
    • Doctor of Chiropractic (D.C.) – While chiropractors are generally thought of a those who primarily treat orthopedic dysfunction, they are also able to practice functional medicine. They cannot prescribe medications and usually have a medical doctor they work with or recommend if you need a traditional treatment.
    • Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine (N.D.) – These doctors are more focused on alternative therapies and cannot prescribe medication. The abilities of an N.D. vary by state.

    All of these practitioners carry different benefits. Ultimately, it’s up to you to find the best fit for your life.

    Key Characteristics of a Functional Medicine Doctor

    Here are the key characteristics of a good functional medicine doctor:

    • They recommend a plant based organic often grain free diet.
    • They don’t make grandiose promises.
    • They specialize in complex chronic conditions such as autoimmune disease.
    • They see themselves as your partner in health.
    • They outline expectations so you know what to expect all along the way.
    • They help you prioritize decisions such as testing and changes that need to be made.
    • They make you feel comfortable and unjudged.
    • They spend the time with you.

     The Red Flags

    The don’t seem to weigh the cost/benefit of tests or overly recommend expensive testing. For example, sometimes you can eliminate items from your diet as opposed to having testing done. Be sure to be honest about your financial limitations so they can work with you to find the best solution for your health and your wallet.

    • They don’t think diet is very important.
    • They recommend overly expensive and excessive supplements.
    • They recommend harsh or dangerous detoxes.
    • They promise you cures.
    • They make you feel uncomfortable or don’t listen to you.
    • They make you feel powerless or discouraged.

    Finding a Functional Medicine Doctor Who Specializes in Your Condition

    When you’re looking for a functional medicine doctor, start in your local area with a general Google search. You may or may not find a good few options easily. Be sure to check for any reviews by searching the specific doctor’s name. If you have a certain condition, sometimes you can find a list of doctors who specialize on websites and support groups sites devoted to that condition.

    For example, many autoimmune conditions have their own websites of resources that will help you find a doctor more quickly. You may even find forums where previous patients discuss how they liked a particular doctor.

    Here’s a quick step-by-step process for how you might narrow your search when looking for an integrative or functional medicine doctor:

    • Google integrative and functional medicine doctors in your area. If you live in a city with lots of neighboring towns, be sure to try searching in some of the areas near you. For example, I’m located in Louisville, CO which is close to both Boulder and Denver. If you live in the Denver area be sure to check: Boulder, Aurora, Centennial and more.
    • Do a search based on your condition. If you have a condition, search in your area but also beyond. Sometimes it’s worth it to travel a bit if it means you’ll find someone who specializes in your condition.
    • Check reviews. Once you find a couple of doctors you’re interested in, check for any reviews available.
    • Once you’ve made a preliminary list, narrow it down or consider making an initial appointment with one or two. You can get a good idea about how you’d like a doctor from listening to interviews, Youtube videos, podcasts, and reading blogs.
    • Make an appointment. The only way you’ll know you’ve found the doctor perfect for you is if you make an initial appointment. I believe your doctor should make you feel at ease and help you understand what needs to be done to be your healthiest self.

    Consider Telemedicine

    We live in a time where you are no longer limited to medical care within a certain radius of your home. Telemedicine is a fast growing industry that pairs patients with doctors all over the world. Benefits of telemedicine include:

    • Access to a specialist without the cost of travel – With telemedicine you have access to a wider range of doctors than you would in your local area. Plus, you don’t have to travel to their office and can complete appointments with your computer.
    • Convenience – Often appointments are done over Skype in the comfort of your own home and then tests are ordered to a local laboratory.
    • Possibly more affordable – Sometimes telemedicine is actually more affordable because it doesn’t require office time and it makes visits more efficient.
    • Enhanced patient compliance – Many find they are more willing to interact with a doctor via telemedicine due to the convenience and comfort.

    If you find a doctor you think is perfect for you, consider telemedicine. Even if that doctor doesn’t advertise it on their site, it might be worth asking if it’s something they offer. Technology is rapidly expanding our options and telemedicine is yet another way we can think outside the box for better health.

    Resources for Finding an Integrative and Functional Medicine Doctor

    Here are a couple of websites that can point you in the right direction:

    In 2017, Dr. Josh Axe, a functional chiropractor compiled a list of the Top 50 Functional and Integrative Medicine Doctors

    Biome + Breast

     [ Fact ]

    Breast cancer is the second most common cancer in women (after skin cancer) where 1 in 8 women will develop the disease in their lifetimes.

    A recent study unveiled by highly respected Cleveland Clinic has verified a link to breast cancer being directly triggered by elevated inflammation and gene interaction from bacterial growth within the breast tissue.

    PRO-biotic Intervention 
    It has been reported that researchers have long suspected that a bacteria lives within breast tissue and plays a role in breast cancer while suggesting that the microbes in the gut may regulate estrogen levels, leading to estrogen-receptor positive breast cancer.

    This insight brings even more attention and importance around preventative through everyday nutritional decisions in adding support for maintaining a healthy micro-flora ecosystem.    


    A display of the results from this study. The purple spike on the left describes the large presence of Methylobacterium species among non-Cancer patients.


    Breast cancer linked to bacterial imbalances

    "Women with breast cancer had higher relative abundances of BacillusEnterobacteriaceae and StaphylococcusEscherichia coli (member of the Enterobacteriaceae family) and Staphylococcus epidermidis. 

    HOW it happens.
    Certain bacteria strains triggers inflammation.
    The inflammation damages DNA in chromosomes of cells lining of the milk ducts.
    When cells split and create two new cells the damage can be copied into the DNA of the new cells.

    If enough errors are copied it can contribute to the development of breast cancer.

    In the end...
    Lactic acid producing bacteria such as Lactobacillus strains were fewer in number as well. These bacteria are known for beneficial health effects including having cancer preventing properties. 

    Read more about the study HERE 

    In Summary: Researchers have uncovered differences in the bacterial composition of breast tissue of healthy women vs. women with breast cancer. The research team has discovered for the first time that healthy breast tissue contains more of the bacterial species Methylobacterium, a finding which could offer a new perspective in the battle against breast cancer.

    • Turtlenecks are almost always a bad idea (since they crowd the face)
    • Clothes should be neatly pressed and should look new or like new
    • Avoid busy patterns and large lines/stripes
    • Blue/green/turquoise shirts/blouses or accents can help emphasize blue/green/hazel eyes
    • Avoid big prints and busy patterns
    • Different necklines will change the apparent shape of your face.  
    • If wearing a colored blouse - ideally go darker than your skin tone
    • Sleeveless tops/dresses can draw attention to your shoulders/arms. 

     Your Jewelry

    • Keep jewelry extremely simple - small is better
    • Avoid jewelry that would distract from your face or that looks dated
    • The picture is about your face, not your jewelry
    • Consider if facial piercings or multiple ear piercings are appropriate for where your photo will be displayed

    Zero Toxins. Anti-aging. 

     Confidence without Compromise

    Not all minerals are created equal. Conventional makeup and mineral lines include fillers such as talc and dyes that pull the moisture OUT of your skin, leaving the skin feeling tight and caky. 

    Other mineral lines also contain nano-particles, which leach into the bloodstream - putting your health and exposed skin at risk and lost coverage. 

    80% of AGING is from UV rays. 
    Makeup should be a true extension of skin care and provide every day UV protection.  Enhance your skin and health with an SPF 50 - on the daily.

    Simple Formula, Naturale Philosophy
    Experience weightless makeup with 4 natural ingredients to balance moisture, even skin tone, protect from UV/Enviro toxins and leaving your skin a natural radiance.

    More Behind the Brand

    In Conclusion...... your image matters.

    Having a quality headshot is critical as first impressions are formulated in seconds.

    Great photos often inspire the right kind of curiosity to find out more about your background, but a bad photo can do just the opposite. Getting that next job, contract, or perhaps a new love may slip through because your image did not accurately represent themselves online.
