An overwhelming amount of very promising research has been gathered supporting the use of medical cannabis for many illnesses and diseases… and the evidence is now impossible to ignore.

Examples:

WorthRepeatingLogo“The endogenous cannabinoid system has revealed potential avenues to treat many disease states … Medicinal indications of cannabinoid drugs including compounds that result in enhance endocannabinoid responses (EER) have expanded markedly in recent years.”

“The wide range of indications covers … chemotherapy complications, tumor growth, addiction, pain, multiple sclerosis, glaucoma, inflammation, eating disorders, age-related neurodegenerative disorders, as well as epileptic seizures, traumatic brain injury, cerebral ischemia, and other excitotoxic insults.”

Transdermal Breast Cancer Treatments

Natural Allopathic Medicine

Natural Allopathic Medicine has a potent protocol for breast cancer. I am almost finished with Surviving Breast Cancer and feel compelled to share an important chapter. The Natural Allopathic protocol shines in terms of breast care because so much of its delivery system is transdermal. There are many non-toxic medicinals that can be applied transdermally to the breasts to help them recover from cancer and any other breast disease. Because the breasts are exposed and covered with an ample expanse of skin they are directly accessible in terms of intensive topical/transdermal cancer treatments with safe effective medicines, something that is virtually unknown to contemporary oncologists.

Breast cancer confronts women with the deepest issues of vulnerability and womanhood. There is no cure for breast cancer from the orthodox oncology point of view. “This is the road map for how we might cure breast cancer in the future,” said Dr. Matthew Ellis of Washington University. The New York Times published a piece about a new study that was, according to Ellis, “fundamentally reshaping the scientific understanding of breast cancer.” So far they have not understood or cured this disease that kills 35,000 American women each and every year.

Researchers and patient advocates are still cautioning that it will take years to translate recent insights into transformative new treatments. Women fortunately do not have to wait till they lose their breasts and then their lives for a breast cancer cure. There is a cure for breast cancer if one is willing to bring together an understanding of the body, breasts, toxins, emotional feelings, issues of womanhood including sexuality and nutrition that come together to create the condition of breast cancer.

Marijuana cuts lung cancer tumor growth in half, Harvard study shows

The active ingredient in marijuana cuts tumor growth in common lung cancer in half and significantly reduces the ability of the cancer to spread, say researchers at Harvard University who tested the chemical in both lab and mouse studies.

They say this is the first set of experiments to show that the compound, Delta-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), inhibits EGF-induced growth and migration in epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) expressing non-small cell lung cancer cell lines. Lung cancers that over-express EGFR are usually highly aggressive and resistant to chemotherapy.

THC that targets cannabinoid receptors CB1 and CB2 is similar in function to endocannabinoids, which are cannabinoids that are naturally produced in the body and activate these receptors. The researchers suggest that THC or other designer agents that activate these receptors might be used in a targeted fashion to treat lung cancer.

Two Striking Marijuana Cancer Studies

In February 2000 researchers in Madrid announced the results of their marijuana cancer study.  They had destroyed incurable brain tumors in rats by injecting them with THC, the active ingredient in cannabis. The study was later published in the journal Nature Cancer Review. Chances are that you have never heard of this study, the same as you likely never heard of a previous marijuana cancer study because there has been a virtual news blackout as well as a concerted government effort to suppress such stories and studies for over thirty years.

DEA to legalize marijuana chemical for big pharma but keep it a crime for everyone else

Have no illusions about the true nature of the so-called “War on Drugs” and the actions of the DEA. The War on Drugs has always been about protecting the profits of the drug companies which have a long and well-documented history of copying street drugs, repackaging them as “medications” and selling them to children as FDA-approved drugs (see below).

Today, yet another example emerges as the DEA moves to legalize THC in Big Pharma’s pills while simultaneously making it illegal for anyone else to grow, sell or possess THC. The DEA, you see, is working to change the classification of THC from a schedule I substance (like street heroin) to a schedule III drug (pharmaceuticals). So if Big Pharma grows its own marijuana plants, extracts the THC and puts it into a “pot pill,” those pills will be perfectly legal. They’re already FDA approved, actually, when made with the synthetic version of THC.

But if a guy grows the very same chemical in his backyard, then extracts THC from those plants — even for his own personal use — suddenly he’s guilty of committing a federal crime and will likely be subjected to an armed raid by DEA agents.
