The Complete Beginner’s Guide To PEA

The Complete Beginner's Guide To PEA

Hi, Dr. Meredith Warner here -

I discovered palmitoylethanolamide (PEA) during my quest to improve my knowledge and applications of natural remedies for my patients, my family, and myself. PEA is one molecule in a family of natural and endogenous fatty acids (meaning that they exist within the human body) that act on a variety of receptors. PEA is of the same family that anandamides are, or the neurotransmitters that are affected by CBD.

PEA, along with oleoylethanolamide (OEA) and other N-acylethanolamines (NAEs), are biologically active lipids. PEA is a strong and natural anti-inflammatory and is essentially devoid of unwanted effects in humans. It is also useful for treating eczema, controlling pain, and preventing neurodegeneration among other benefits.

PEA is naturally present within human beings and is produced on demand in the lipid bilayer of cells. It has a short half-life and is metabolized when not needed. When taken orally, it has a high volume of distribution throughout the body and is especially effective in the brain and for nervous tissues.

PEA is found in high levels during several inflammatory and painful disorders due to its innate anti-inflammatory activities. It basically functions as an internal regulator of pain.

How PEA Works

a natural option for pain + inflammation relief

PEA in all available clinical trials produces significant pain relief without any side effects. This is true for pain intensity in patients with chronic pain and/or neuropathic pain, too.

PEA acts mostly on non-neuronal cells of the nervous system. Current thinking in chronic and neuropathic pain targets these cells as they are most responsible for the actual sensation of pain. This is sometimes called gliopathic pain or asteropathic pain.

It has been discovered that mast cells are particularly active around peripheral nerve endings in the pain situations. PEA downregulates the inflammatory and stimulatory activities of the mast cells. Peripheral mast cells are pro-nociceptive (pain-perceiving). PEA is anti-nociceptive (blocks pain perception). PEA targets receptors and cellular activities that are not traditional to common pain medications.

PEA is a cannabimimetic compound, meaning PEA works with cannabinoid receptors within the body. It is also known as an indirect endocannabinoid.

PEA should be a daily supplement to enhance the activities of the family of lipids to which it belongs. PEA is natural and is normally produced by the human body. Most of us are likely deficient. PEA is an indirect endocannabinoid and as such plays an important role in the endogenous regulatory system of the endocannabinoids.

How To USE PEA

PEA is naturally analgesic (anti-pain), anti-inflammatory, and will downregulate mast cells’ activities and thus protect peripheral nerve endings. PEA is great for the brain and acts on the support cells such as the glial cells and astrocytes.

If you do not have enough PEA, you will lack the full regulatory ability of the endocannabinoid system. This means that all other systems in your body will lack balance.

PEA is a natural way to produce many of the same effects as CBD.

Platelet-Rich Plasma: A New Anti-Aging Treatment

designed with curated botanicals + medical expertise

Hi, Dr. Meredith Warner here –

I have over 20 years experience with platelet rich plasma PRP and other regenerative treatments for connective tissue and collagen. I have used PRP in countless surgeries and for many orthopedic, wound healing and connective tissue problems encountered in my practice.

Likewise, I have incorporated natural and alternative types of treatments into my practice and personal health for the same amount of time. I have a deep knowledge base of the properties and rejuvenating/healing abilities of phytochemicals like terpenes, flavonoids, sesquiterpenoids, alkaloids, etc.

I have combined my knowledge of connective tissue and the healing of collagen and skin with my knowledge of the healing abilities of phytochemicals and PRP (platelet-rich plasma) in a new and exciting product.

PRP And Facial Rejuvenation:

surgeon-tested & surgeon-approved

I personally wanted to find a way to use PRP for facial rejuvenation. I did not have the time or desire to undergo a microneedling procedure – during which a practitioner would poke many small holes in my face to administer PRP injections. Currently, one of the standards in facial rejuvenation is to combine microneedling with PRP.

Microneedling is thought to stimulate collagen healing by penetrating the skin with small needles and causing damage to the subdermal layer. This damage is then healed by the natural healing mechanisms of the human body. At the time that the holes are made in the skin, PRP can be spread over the face in the hopes that it will enter the subdermal region through these holes.

Read More: Beginner’s Guide To PRP

I have long thought that this method of treatment seems primitive and there must be a better way to gain more youthful skin. Also, we know that inflammation is the source of mitochondrial damage and can be an underlying reason for the development of wrinkles and certain types of diseases such as cancer.

It has never made a lot of sense to me to induce inflammation to cure the results of inflammation. I thought about this for a long time and developed my PRP Collagen Complex.

The Science Behind Dr. Warner's PRP Collagen Complex

Essentially, I knew that there are certain phytochemicals that can drive PRP through the outer skin layer and to the underlying collagen in the subdermal plane – and mixing them with PRP would deliver an effective anti-aging treatment without invasive microneedling.

The subdermal plane beneath the outer layer of skin is the area that requires healing and growth to improve the fullness and freshness of the face. To that end, I have developed a method to safely put PRP in that region and to allow for rejuvenation of the skin, and have tested it on myself for months to ensure its safety and effectiveness.

Phytochemicals like CBD are terpenes that interact with the body on a molecular level. The research behind Well Theory – developing more natural, less invasive methods of treatment – is what informed the design of this PRP Collagen Complex, currently available in my clinic here in Baton Rouge.

Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy

what is is + why you need it

PRP, or platelet-rich-plasma therapy is a regenerative therapy that has been used in a variety of settings – aesthetic, surgical, wound care, and more.

Dr. Meredith Warner, founder of Well Theory, has over 20 years experience with platelet-rich-plasma (PRP) and other regenerative treatments for connective tissue and collagen health. She has used PRP in countless surgeries and for many orthopedic, wound healing and connective tissue problems encountered in her practice.

Dr. Warner’s clinical experience using this regenerative therapy inspired her to continue incorporating natural and alternative types of treatments into both her personal life and clinical practice. This has led to a deep understanding of such treatments and discerning whether or not her patients can benefit from them instead of more invasive procedures. She has been able to apply the powers of PRP into not just surgical procedures but for many outpatient injuries, degenerative conditions and for issues related to skin and connective tissue health.

How It Works

and why it works

PRP Therapy uses one of the body’s most efficient healing devices to improve and speed up recovery. Basically, PRP allows for the application of concentrated amounts of your own platelets to the damaged region. Platelets are filled with granules that hold growth factors and proteins integral to healing. Platelet activation is a crucial aspect of wound and soft tissue healing. 

Platelets are tiny cell fragments that help to promote healing in injured areas of the body and relieve pain. Without platelets there would be no ability for natural healing of the body from injury, disease, degeneration and environmental toxins or chronic inflammation.

PRP therapy works by harnessing one of the most essential parts of your body’s natural healing process and applying it in a concentrated form to where you need it most. This results in a faster, more effective rate of healing without further invasive procedures. This is a proven clinical therapy with significant benefits for patients.

Studies show PRP makes chronic conditions resemble a new injury and the healing response renews. This new response combined with the growth and healing factors that PRP provides can lead to an improved chance of healing, which may mean surgery isn’t necessary in some cases. If your provider indicates a need for surgery, ask if PRP is a viable option.

The Process Of PRP Therapy

what you can expect

If you are interested in PRP, here’s a general idea of what to expect.

Your blood is extracted using a sterile method, and then separated in a centrifuge in the office. This separates your plasma from the rest of your blood cells. After this, your PRP will be drawn into a syringe and applied where it’s needed most. In an aesthetic setting, your PRP may be added into a microneedling procedure and deposited under the skin in a series of small punctures. For problems such as tendinitis or degenerative muscles or connective tissues, often an ultrasound is utilized to target the injection of PRP to structures deep to the skin.

Dr. Warner recently developed a PRP Collagen Complex cream that bypasses microneedling altogether by harnessing the power of phytochemicals. Phytochemicals are generally from plant extracts and can interact with the human body in a variety of healing ways – CBD is an example of a phytochemical; it acts on the endocannabinoid system to reduce inflammation, anxiety, restore hormonal balance, and more.

The phytochemical and phytonutrient blend Dr. Warner uses in this Collagen Complex helps to drive PRP through the tight skin barrier to the collagen and other connective tissues underneath, negating the need for microneedling or other tissue trauma and providing a powerfully revitalizing solution for those who want to use a powerful anti-aging treatment at home.

In a surgical setting, PRP is extracted and separated while you are under anesthesia typically, then injected where needed during your procedure. There are also outpatient PRP therapies available for those who need regenerative therapy to improve joint function, heal scar tissue, and more. During such procedures, your PRP is extracted, separated, and injected into the site of treatment (which is typically numbed beforehand.)

Why Does CBD Work so Well?

Why Does CBD Work so Well?

CBD and The Medical Field

CBD is the newest trend in the health and wellness community – and is even making waves in the medical community for its health benefits as well. From fighting insomnia to reducing stress, treating seizures, and reducing inflammation, CBD has become the most well-known natural remedy for a host of conditions.

Read more: Can CBD Cure Epilepsy?

Because of CBD’s proven medical applications, there are many clinical trials being conducted – or have recently been conducted – showing its successful applications for the treatment of problems associated with conditions including (but not limited to) anxiety, pain + inflammation in joints, Parkinson’s, and more with limited, if any, side effects. 

This means that CBD has the potential to be a safe and holistic alternative to heavy pharmaceutical treatments, which often have discouraging side effects.

How Does CBD Work?

You might be wondering how CBD can be successfully utilized to treat so many different conditions – and you aren’t alone. Most of the research being performed by the medical and scientific communities focuses on how CBD interacts with the body.

Their research has found that CBD mimics endocannabinoids, which are chemicals that your body produces naturally. CBD itself is a phytocannabinoid, as such, it is able to attach to receptors in your body to exert its therapeutic effects. The two receptors it is known to either regulate or attach to are CB1 and CB2 receptors.

CB1 receptors are found mostly in the brain and are related to things like coordination, pain, emotions, appetite, and more.

CB2 receptors are more commonly found in the immune system, and influence the body’s inflammatory response and signal pain receptors. When you stub your toe and the tissue surrounding it gets swollen and inflamed, that is inflammation. CB2 receptors are found on cells involved in inflammation and therefore phytocannabinoids can directly influence that inflammatory response.

CBD has been shown to interact with the receptors on certain white blood cells – which makes it possible, therefore, for CBD to naturally suppress the body’s inflammatory response and balance pain. CBD is also able to modulate certain nervous system neurotransmitters and thus regulate mood. 

These neurotransmitters are essential to your overall health and well-being, and when these neurotransmitters are “misfiring,” aka, promoting neural imbalance and inflammation, it can wreak havoc on the body. Overly elevated or diminished production of certain endocannabinoids create imbalance in other physiologic systems; this causes imbalances and symptoms such as pain,depression, lower immune function, and more.

How CBD Promotes Balance

mentally & physically

When ingested or used in topical formulations, Cannabidiol has the ability to naturally increase your body’s endocannabinoid levels, but in addition to that, it protects your receptors from being overly stimulated. It has been shown to bind to CB1 receptors in a different pattern than the cannabinoids your body produces on its own, reducing the receptor’s ability to allow other cannabinoids to bind to it, thereby reducing its responsiveness. 

This is a good thing, as most imbalances are caused by overactive receptors – causing things such as anxiety, appetite, and fluctuating weight. CB1 receptors are balanced themselves, by CB2 receptors.


CBD does more than just bind to or alter the function of CB1 and CB2 receptors, however. It has the ability to interact with other receptors, such as serotonin receptors in the brain, and pain receptors that respond to temperature and respond with a pain and heat sensation.

CBD can mimic serotonin and bind affect receptors in the brain, activating them and playing a role in reducing anxiety, depression, and more. It can also bind to the receptors that sense injury, reducing your body’s inflammatory response and promoting a more gentle, and appropriate, reaction to injury. 

When you are injured, discomfort occurs from the injury itself, and the swelling, heat, and pain that the body produces following the injury. CBD’s ability to bind to these receptors, called TRVP1 receptors, is what makes it a prime candidate for treating epilepsy and reducing discomfort caused by arthritic joints.

How Does It Interact With Medications?

If you are considering using CBD to manage symptoms related to inflammation, emotional distress, and more, you may already be taking medications prescribed by your doctor. Even if you are not on other medications, it’s wise to consult with your physician before starting a CBD regimen. Your physician will likely be able to recommend trustworthy brands and products that are suited for your particular condition.

Because of its wide range of uses, cannabidiol is becoming increasingly utilized for its therapeutic properties. Much of the science surrounding how it exerts its effects is still being developed, but early findings all point to it being a remarkably risk-free alternative to more side effect-prone medications. 

While it should never be used instead of prescribed medication (unless your physician gives you the go-ahead,) it has been shown in dozens of early trials to effectively reduce inflammation, curb anxiety, and improve overall well-being.

Can CBD Cure Epilepsy?

Can CBD Cure Epilepsy?

The Case of Billy Caldwell

The science surrounding CBD is nascent, yet promising. So far, the compound seems to be improving problems ranging from chronic pain to Crohn’s Disease.

But one particular area of CBD interest is in epilepsy treatment. For example, in a landmark 2018 study conducted by New York University’s Comprehensive Epilepsy Center, 225 patients suffering from Lennox-Gastaut syndrome given CBD found significant reductions in seizure occurrence versus a control group.

But there are some who claim to already have known that CBD is a miracle cure for seizures–some of whom have compelling stories.

One such person is a little boy named Billy Caldwell, whose life was saved when the government granted him a CBD prescription, which, tragically, it later took away.

Billy Caldlwell

first person to get a CBD prescription

Billy was in bad shape. In fact, the 14-year-old was dying from a severe form of epilepsy that was causing up to 100 seizures per day. To make matters worse, his condition was intractable, meaning that he could not get help through diet or medication.

But then, something miraculous happened. Not being able to rely on traditional cures to save her son, Billy’s mom put him on CBD to soothe his near-constant seizing.

At one point, Billy’s mom reported that her son had not had a single seizure in the over 300 days since starting the CBD supplement.

Not only did this give Billy a new lease on life, but it would eventually put his case in the media spotlight after becoming the first person to get a CBD prescription in Northern Ireland.

What happened

when his prescription wasn't renewed

Shortly after the seizure-free 300 day mark, the government did not allow the renewal of Billy’s CBD prescription.

His seizures promptly returned, reports the BBC.

His mother was outraged at what she perceived as an act of ignorance and callousness by the government. She called their reluctance to renew the prescription ‘orchestrated cruelty’ and is now fighting a legal battle for her son’s life.

There’s lots of hope for Billy Caldwell. CBD--though not easily accessible where he lives--is at least available. And the stigma surrounding the cannabis-plant derivative is slowly lifting.

Studies like the one performed at New York University are paving the way for both new uses for CBD as well as its acceptance into the mainstream. Likely, new science will emerge in the short term that will present even better news for seizure sufferers.

3 Ways Your Mental Health Affects Your Immune System

How Your Mental Health Affects Your Immune System

Maintain Your Mental Health

for a better functioning immune system

Your mental health affects much more than just your mood. Depression, anxiety, and stress disorders among other emotional struggles can take a toll on your physical health. There is a definite mind-body connection with regard to health and wellness.

Here are three ways that your mental health can affect your immune system as well as solutions to improve your physical and emotional health.

How Depression

can affect your physical health

1. Problem: Depression can weaken your immune system.
When your immune system is not functioning at full capacity, you are at a heightened risk for disease and infection. You may be more susceptible to catching colds or developing cardiovascular and autoimmune diseases.

In some circumstances, depression can not only lead to a weakened immune system, but it can also lower the effectiveness of vaccinations.

Solution: Find healthy methods of managing stress.
Set up daily routines to help you avoid the negative effects of stress and problems in your life. Allow yourself time in the morning or after work to meditate. Enjoy a long conversation with a close friend or family member. Relax in the evening with a good book and a cup of tea. Tea is especially beneficial and healthy;chamomile tea is an excellent evening remedy.

Managing your daily stress can help you to feel more relaxed, be better prepared for your day, and avoid a compromised immune system.

Two Easy Habits

you can use to improve your mental health

2. Problem: Mental health can cause you to feel fatigued.
Issues with mental health can lead to increased physical and emotional fatigue on top of a weakened immune system.

This can easily become a vicious cycle. Stress and depression can lead to problems with sleep and a lack of energy which, in turn, make it harder to manage your mental health throughout the day.

Solution: Take steps to improve your quality of sleep.
Establish healthy practices to ensure that you get the best night’s sleep possible. This can include cutting out coffee and caffeinated beverages before bed or even after lunch, limiting your time on electronics in the evening, and setting up a consistent sleeping and waking schedule. Blue light from LED screens is especially detrimental to sleep. Either don’t watch TV and/or read screens at night or use blue light blocking glasses.

These healthy practices can help you to feel more awake and energized during your day which can help to prevent fatigue-related depression.

3. Problem: Stress can make you more vulnerable to unhealthy habits.
When you are plagued by stress, it becomes much easier to give in to negative practices. Many men and women who struggle with depression and stress disorders have exhibited higher tendencies to smoke and engage in unhealthy eating habits.

Smoking and overeating can lead to several health concerns including a higher risk of heart disease, a compromised immune system, and in some circumstances, inflammatory issues.

Solution: Kick the unhealthy habits to the curb.
We know that this is easier said than done, but setting up healthy routines can help you to fight unhealthy habits.

If you have problems with stress eating, prepare balanced meals and snacks in advance. Not only will preparing your meals ahead of schedule help you to avoid overindulging in calorie-laden foods, but it will also cut out one extra step during a busy workday. If you do snack, also drink a glass of water; this is healthy and will also fill you up.

Cutting out cigarettes can be even harder, but your health and well-being are worth the effort. Seek the encouragement of friends and family, and if necessary, consult with your doctor to help quit smoking. Occasionally medication is necessary to quit.

Well Theory: a Better Way to Wellness

use our resources to improve your mental wellness

You don’t have to deal with your mental health alone. If you are having difficulty managing stress and depression, talking to a doctor can help. Follow these simple solutions, and seek the advice of a medical professional to promote a healthier state of mind. Remember, at least one in four Americans suffers from a mental health disorder; you are not alone.
