The New Age of Natural Health Solutions
This is the dawn of a new age in the field of healthcare — it seems like everyone is going green. People are relying more and more on natural health solutions and taking their wellness into their own hands. This growing phenomenon is helping people to get and stay healthy on their own and steer clear of costly, impromptu doctors’ visits.
You don’t have to be a tree hugger or health fanatic to benefit from this new trend, but you should be informed. Your health is too valuable to mess around with, and if you’re not careful, you could do yourself more harm than good. The great thing about natural health solutions is that they usually have few (if any) side effects, meaning they are typically safe.

Over the past few years, cannabis has undergone a serious public relations makeover. It is no longer considered the plant of slackers and ne’er-do-wells. Now it is a plant that’s almost as known for its health benefits as it’s recreational ones.
CBD is one of the many cannabinoids found in cannabis plants, but it has no high-inducing effects, unlike its cousin THC. Pure CBD products are usually derived from hemp and not marijuana. That means that it can be legally purchased in states where pot is not yet legal!
CBD has generated so much excitement over the past few years because of the many benefits associated with it. Aside from it not causing euphoria, it can also mitigate the high-inducing effects of THC. It even shows promise as a supplement to help opioid addicts to overcome their addiction.
In addition to those effects, it also is great for chronic pain, epilepsy, and even mental health issues like anxiety and depression. With so many great benefits and only a few, very mild side effects, it’s no wonder that CBD is trending so high right now.
The negative effects of stress on wellness are well documented. Not only can it lead to mental illness, but it can have serious implications on your physical health as well. Headaches, stomach discomfort, fatigue, and chest pains can all be caused by tension.
As natural solutions continue to gain popularity, people are beginning to pay more attention to how stress is affecting their health. As a result, many people are joining the “mindfulness movement”.
There is nothing new about practicing mindfulness. As a matter of fact, it is an ancient habit that is enjoying a renaissance in the US. It’s a great tool that can help you to identify the stress factors in your life and work your way through them with mindfulness rather than medicine.
People who practice mindfulness tend to exude an overall sense of well-being and contentment. This doesn’t mean that they never feel stressed, but when they do, they can nip it in the bud before their anxiety can manifest in their body. You don’t have to be a zen guru to try it — there are apps that lead you through guided meditations that can help you get the hang of it.
How new age medicine affects the nutrition industry
The uptick of people who treat themselves through alternative methods has serious implications on the nutrition industry. But the implications are in no way apocalyptic as long as you know how to capitalize on the current trends.
You would be wise to start stocking your shelves with CBD products as it is the “it” supplement right now. You should consult with cannabis lawyers who can help you navigate the laws about cannabis in your state.
If you want to sell pure CBD — CBD products with no THC in them — then just know that you are disqualifying yourself from selling THC products. If you sell THC products, then all of your cannabis products have to have THC in them.
You can capitalize on the mindfulness and self-care movements by stocking your shelves with candles, yoga mats, and aromatic essential oils. In other words, don’t let the moment escape you when you can profit from it!
