Cannabis Extracts in Medicine

 

There is a huge controversy over Marijuana and its byproducts, but I think it is time to put aside the political agendas and see this as just another medication that can improve peoples lives.

 

A little education can go a long way.

MY REVIEW

 

BEFORE you condemn it, learn about it.

 

I know this is a controversial subject, but there are so many reasons to rethink the illegality of marijuana.

 

It is not all about getting high, but, also, feeling better, being able to lead a productive life for young and old alike.

 

The illegality of marijuana came about in the 30’s. What drove it? Dupont, greed and politics?

 

Reading Cannabis was an education for me, not only in the drug, marijuana, itself, but all the things surrounding it. The political ramifications, the cost to victims lives when they are imprisoned, and the loss of their possessions through asset forfeiture. I mean, we don’t treat a murderer this badly.

 

So many diseases and ailments can be treated with marijuana, without the debilitating side affects of many legal pharmaceuticals…epilepsy, seizures, anxiety, bipolar, pain, cancer, parkinsons, and some major central nervous system disorders…insomnia, schizophrenia, multiple sclerosis, diabetes and inflammation and inflammatory diseases.

The growing of marijuana is the same as creating legal pharmaceuticals, they are developed. You don’t just throw a seed in the ground, give it some water, light and fertilizer and voila. It is complicated and costly, but, in my book, something we need to consider.

 

Have you had someone you love, or yourself, in torturous, overwhelming pain, anxiety that paralyzes you, a terminal illness that legal drugs make any kind of life impossible, , even though you are sitting beside the person, they are so drugged they don’t even know you are there?

 

What is wrong with giving people all the options that are out there? Don’t you want to make your own choices, when your health and quality of life is on the line?

 

At the end of each chapter of the books is a wonderful, simplistic summary of the chapter that makes things easy to understand.

 

I would recommend this book to EVERYONE.

The Peterson Group: Is Acupuncture Really Effective For Children?
As one of the entities in the world that support alternative medicines, The Peterson Group CAM and Integrative Medicines is convinced that acupuncture is safe for children. It even considers the practice as an effective method to treat chronic pain as well as other illnesses and diseases.

It's evident that there are several study findings regarding this particular traditional Chinese medicine, some of it proved its effectiveness, others don’t. Modern American acupuncturists have been through strict training, safety standards and certifications before becoming licensed, making them trustworthy and reliable individuals. Unqualified practitioners are often the reason why some studies suggest that acupuncture is not really effective and safe for children.

On the other hand, The Peterson Group strongly believes that qualified practitioners can provide effective treatment for children using acupuncture. It is considered safe because of some factors, such as infections from acupuncture needles are particularly rare because only single-use sterile disposable needles are being used in this practice.

As a parent, you're may be thinking that the needles can pierce through the lungs or other vital organs of your child, but you're thinking it wrong because the needles are hair-fine, virtually painless, and are inserted superficially into the skin. But if you can't help but get worried about the needles, there are also other painless methods used to stimulate the acupuncture points without using any needles but have similar therapeutic effects as acupuncture. Those kind of methods will not have any pernicious effect on the body since they do not penetrate the skin.

Experts are also using a non-needle method to children afraid of needles. In particular, this method is commonly used for babies and toddlers to stimulate acupuncture points. Acupuncture needles are not retained in the body for children under age 8, they are swiftly tapped in and immediately taken out. Advise your children to stay still for a couple of seconds at a time during the treatment. But for children over age 8, the needles are maintained in the body for 10 to 20 minutes while the child is sitting still. In order to avoid any dangerous effect on the child, the needles are made smaller and are inserted superficially to the skin.

During the insertion of the needle, children might feel a brief feeling of discomfort for almost 1-2 seconds, which is not a big deal so there's absolutely nothing to worry about. Because of the special techniques used in pediatrics, mild harmful effects such as temporary bruising or swelling at the needle site rarely happen. The Peterson Group wants you to make sure that the practitioner you choose is licensed and has special training in pediatrics.
