So many people out there associate the term “holistic medicine” to hippies and new age type practices, but that couldn’t be farther from the truth.
- At its core, holistic health approaches a person as more than the sum of their parts.
Mind, spirit, emotional state, social standing, mood, environment, all of these things are connected to your body and your overall health. Does that make more sense? For some people holistic health means spending time out in the sun, exercising, or planting crops, for other people it means using CBD products, or spending vast amounts of time at the legal cannabis dispensary. For me it is a blend of all these things, especially now that there is a legal pot dispensary right near the beach where I spend a lot of my time. I spend as much time in the waves on my surfboard as humanly possible, and having ready access to legal pot every day is a real joy. Usually I will start my day in the waves, and get in a couple of hours before the legal pot dispensary even opens for the day. Yeah, I start at sunrise, people, you have to chase the waves! Anyway, when the legal pot store opens up I will buy a few grams and twist it up in a massive joint, which I call “breakfast.” After that I head back into the waves, and while sometimes I will pop into the legal pot store on my way back home, usually I do not. Getting stoned once a day is enough for me.
