Episode 9 - My DNA Changes From WHAT?! & Ways To Safely Treat Addiction By Activating Neuro-pathways
Jun 24, 2020
Willam A. Seeds, MD

This episode focuses on lesser known DNA methylation (or changes) from medical or recreational cannabis and even CBD (with and without THC).

There are positive factors in using these treatments for pain management, there is no doubt in that. What people do need to be aware of are the potential changes from extensive use to your DNA, and what it could mean for those around you, and possibly for future offspring.

Everyone should know all the pros and cons for feeling and operating at their best. That is what Dr. Seeds is committed to providing in these podcasts. Every case is unique, and every patient is as well.

Addiction is a tough battle. It's interesting however, to look at what happens in the brain when it feel like it cannot function without a particular thing or substance.

When you're able to see addiction from the molecular perspective, treating and reversing such addictions becomes a science.

What an incredible impact this focus may have...

Mentioned supplements and peptides from the episode:
DSIP (Deep Sleep Inducing Peptide)
DHH-B (dihydrohonokiol-B)
L-carnosine
