This empowering and thought provoking talk challenges the standard definition of a ‘healthy lifestyle’, examines the impact that the mind has on the body, and shines light on how and why cannabis works for a variety of medical conditions. Elise Keller explains how the biological mechanism responsible for how cannabis works in our body – the endocannabinoid system – could have us all reconsidering what it means to stay physically healthy. Elise Keller is the founder of Rise CannaCoaching and Rise.Thrive.Soar –- an online breast cancer community group for women who are learning to support their endocannabinoid system during cancer treatment and beyond. Elise started Rise after experiencing first hand how difficult it is to get sound, meaningful and evidence based information about how to use cannabis as a cancer patient The further she fell into cannabis medicine, the more it became evident to her that cannabis was in fact a gateway drug after all – a gateway to connecting to a new understanding of whole health, and what it means to live a healthy lifestyle Elise trained through the Medical Cannabis Institute, the Cannabis Coaching Institute, and is a member of the Society of Cannabis Clinicians This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.
