Nice Patients Finish Last: Fight For Your Rights

Nice Patients Finish Last: Fight For Your Rights
 

When society at large admits to seeing the worst of our medical system, we have got a serious problem.  This time the cry of help is coming from the families that are trying to treat their loved one’s conditions without cannabis, unsuccessfully. For them, the potential benefits of medical marijuana far outweigh the risks associated with the harmful traditional treatment options they are currently being prescribed by doctors & physicians.

The parents of children with epilepsy have it worst of all. With reports of families fleeing their home-state at a rapid pace to MMJ-friendly states like Colorado. Patient-refuge tales like Landon’s story and Mykala’s story give us a glimpse into a world that so many families are forced to face.

State Lines Shouldn’t Limit Access To Medical Marijuana

The epilepsy drugs approved by the FDA all come with a slew of long and short term side effects, some causing permanent damage to one’s body.  Many children are prescribed multiple medications, leaving their parents with an unrecognizable zombie, in the form of their child.  According to recent research, medical cannabis has been proving to decrease these seizures, helping epileptic children wean off harmful (sometimes addictive) prescription drugs, and get them back to doing what they should be doing: being kids.

cannabis curesJuicing cannabis has shown amazing promise when it comes to decreasing seizures, with absolutely no negative side effects.  However, accessing live cannabis plants is an obstacle most Americans face, especially parents of ill children. Even if money wasn’t an issue (which it is), there just isn’t a place for people to go to juice cannabis regularly, at least in California.

Without consistent access to quality cannabis oil, patients cannot begin the process of removing current FDA approved medications from their daily regiment, without a reliable alternative set in place.  These families live in constant fear of running out of medicine, as for many, medical cannabis is the only thing that works for them.

Finding A Quality Cannabis Doctor / Qualified Physician

The sudden removal of medication is not recommended, by any doctor, and the process must be carefully overseen by a qualified physician. To get the best care, you may want to do a search for references and find someone with extensive experience in the industry, such as Dr. Bonni Goldstein, a Los Angeles based cannabis-friendly doctor.

Finding a cannabis literate doctor is a challenge enough, before you even get to the medicine.  This long list of complications is causing families to uproot their lives and relocate in hope of a better future.

South Carolina Girl Gets First Dose Of Cannabis Oil To Help Treat Her Seizures

South Carolina Girl Gets First Dose Of Cannabis Oil To Help Treat Her Seizures
 

A six-year old South Carolinian girl, Mary Louise, is suffering from pediatric epilepsy. Fortunately, she lives in a state where she can access cannabis in oil form. This is her story.

CBD Dominant Cannabis Oil As A Seizure Treatment

Given the justifiable concerns around getting children “high,” lawmakers in many other states are taking extra precautions in crafting legalization statutes. In effect, many state politicians are opting to only legalize CBD (cannabidiol), the cannabinoid they feel they can “trust,” a definite step in the wrong direction after multiple studies have proven that the entourage effect of cannabinoids plays a significant role in the efficacy of cannabis as a viable treatment.

sc girl

In fact, scientists are actively experimenting with different ratios of cannabinoids to see which ratios are ideal for treating specific conditions. It’s important not to think of CBD as the only medicinal cannabinoid, as THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) and the other many cannabinoids also have many medicinal properties as well.

 

As such cannabis oil is quickly climbing the charts as the most effective (and least harmful) treatment option for patients suffering from pediatric epilepsy.  Many parents with children suffering from pediatric epilepsy are now turning to cannabis oil in an effort to save their children from the damage caused by seizures, and the adverse long-term/short-term side effects of the pharmaceuticals they are otherwise relegated to use for treatment.

 

It’s gotten so bad, families living in states where cannabis is still illegal are being forced to stop their lives and relocate to cannabis-friendly states like Colorado, where they can legally access a cure for their loved ones.

Mary Experienced An 81% Decrease In Epileptic Symptoms

Having said that, South Carolina passed their CBD-only law for epileptic children in March 2014, and those children are finally getting access to some of the medicine they need. Mary Louise’s mother, Jill Swing, spoke with The Island Packet of Hilton Head on her daughter’s progress.  Before Mary Louise began treatment, Swing says her daughter was suffering more than 100 seizures during a 45-minute therapy session.

 

After her first dose of CBD oil, her seizures dropped to 19 during a similar session. That’s an 81% decrease in symptoms; a dramatic improvement in her condition.

 

Formerly, Mary Louise was known as a quiet child, but now she is coming out of her shell and talking up a storm.  Cannabis can give people their lives back.  Children, most of all, deserve a fighting chance at a healthy and happy life.  As adults, it’s our responsibility to provide them with that opportunity.  Why would we limit a child’s potential by depriving them of the plant that can cure their condition without harm?

 

With cases like Landon‘s and Charlotte‘s, the world is finally opening its arms up and looking at the bigger picture.  These two children have turned to cannabis, Charlotte to treat pediatric epilepsy, Landon to treat acute lymphoblastic Leukemia.  These children’s families had to go against the advice of their traditional doctors, opting to refuse chemotherapy, and to use cannabis oil solely instead.  Both children have experienced amazing improvement and continue to change the impression of medical marijuana across America daily. Lives could be saved and improved, permanent damage prevented, and families restored.

Canadian Doctors Given The Green Light To Prescribe Medical Marijuana

Posted on Categories Health and MedicineLeave a commentBy
Canadian Doctors Given The Green Light To Prescribe Medical Marijuana

 

Since Canada has legalized medical cannabis, they have spread out access availability across the country. Physicians have been given licenses to prescribe marijuana, however, until recently Canadian doctors have lacked a set of guidelines to follow when providing their patients with specific usage instructions.

Canada Doctors Now Prescribing Cannabis To Patients

The College of Family Physicians of Canada has created a new set of guidelines to instruct doctors how and when to help their patients medicate with marijuana to treat their specific condition.

 

“Physicians are in a difficult situation with a product that remains illegal in Canada and yet for which they are now asked to actually be the prescriber of this substance,” said Francine Lemire, CEO of the College of Family Physicians of Canada.

 

The guidelines are to provide a blue-print for patients, designed to help doctors inform patients how to safely access marijuana without risk of unintended consequences.

 

Under the new set of guidelines, Canadian doctors are instructed to only prescribe cannabis to patients when all other treatment options have been exhausted. These guidelines also limit people under the age of 25 or those with a family history of psychosis or substance abuse disorder.  Medical marijuana is also not to be prescribed to treat anxiety or insomnia, regardless of multiple studies showing cannabis can actually help treat different stress-induced anxiety disorders as well as insomnia.

Canadian Physicians Not Sure How to Feel

Until Health Canada and other credible health institutions have completed comprehensive and extensive studies on the health benefits of cannabis, many physicians feel unsure of how to effectively exercise their right to prescribe cannabis.

Pain researcher at Dalhousie University and chair of the Arthritis Society’s scientific advisory committee, Jason McDougall said, “I think it’s high time that we found something to help the 4.6-million Canadians living with arthritis and trying to do something to help. I think physicians are hesitant about it because they don’t fully understand.”

 

The Arthritis Society has plans to allocate funds toward marijuana research, which Dr. McDougall hopes will help inform the public and encourage further community benefits through cannabis treatments.

 

Dr. Chris Simpson, President of the Canadian Medical Association believes that these guidelines with help prevent a “wild west” approach to cannabis treatment and will help doctors maintain a scientific approach and ensure better patient care.

 

Despite how stringent those guidelines seem to be, Canada is still far ahead of the United States when it comes toward getting cannabis safely to their ill.  With an estimated 40,000 Canadians using cannabis to medicate, we should start to see a shift in the healthcare system as more and more physicians begin to open their minds to cannabis as a viable treatment option.

Why Decriminalization Isn’t Good Enough

Posted on Categories Health and Medicine, Legislation, Marijuana LawLeave a commentBy

To say, “We have won once the Country decriminalizes cannabis,” would be to neglect her greater call. The medicinal benefits should be in the spotlight. When life and adolescent brain development (epilepsy) are on the line, nothing else matters. If we only ‘decriminalize’ the plant, we are likening it to alcohol or some other social party favor. This is a wonder drug and the world needs to know! The brilliant minds of this country must be unafraid to innovate and improve the cannabis industry.

 

By demonizing cannabis, brushing the medicinal benefits under the rug, and creating the Marijuana Excise Tax of 1937, the U.S. Government drove the discussion off course and the advancement paused.

 

Patients and industrial companies had to pay a special excise tax to continue usingBenjamin cannabis and hemp. By the 1950’s, patients were cut off when it became a crime for anyone to possess cannabis. This schedule 1 drug helps the ill eat, sleep, and numbs their pain. Instead of this drug being a blessing in his time of hardship, it now came with the fear of arrest and consequent jail time: a penalty most patients won’t survive. So, they suffer and die earlier than they would otherwise.

 

In 1976, a judge ruled in the favor of a glaucoma patient making him the first legal pot smoker during Prohibition. As a compromise to other glaucoma patients who also expressed that cannabis was the only drug that aided their pain, the federal government allowed thirteen other participants to join the program. Only four remain and the government continues to provide their medicine. No more patients may enter. If you’ve ever tried the G-13 strain, you are sampling the genetic lineage developed by the US government.

 

Supreme Court Building

Nothing positive has come of Prohibition. Retired Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens said it best on NPR.org when asked if he thought Marijuana should be legalized, ” Yes. I really think … and recognize that the distinction between marijuana and alcoholic beverages is really not much of a distinction. Alcohol, the prohibition against selling and dispensing alcoholic beverages has I think been generally… not worth the cost. And I really think in time that will be the general consensus with respect to this particular drug.”

 

When bright minds like Justice Stevens impart irrefutable logic upon us, we must listenrGJaOid7-Lubwp-moZgILOmBJ8oLsvB_GCHm7Lw6FO69lh_XWSLi9gH3Pf_t and act. Our country is finally starting to recognize the illegitimacy of our past lawmakers’ move to smear the image of cannabis. While cannabis has been inaccessible to legal testing and research by non-government scientists and doctors for almost 80 years, modern science has improved light years. If we stop at decriminalization, our scientists may never tap into the reservoir of medicinal miracles just waiting to be discovered. A revolution is bubbling like a volcano eager to explode and the federal government acts as if they can just plug it with a cork. Decriminalization must be just the first of many steps on the trail we are so freshly blazing.

Let’s Come Out of the 4/20 Closet

Posted on Categories Health and Medicine, Legalization, Marijuana LawLeave a commentBy

Every day a patient passes away who could have had a longer life with the aid of cannabis. Every day someone gets arrested for smoking a joint and spends time behind bars. And on that same day, someone in a different state alleviates their pain with cannabis on the comfort of their couch or local park lawn in peace.

 

State lines shouldn’t impact what is medicine or certain inalienable rights to freedom. So many people proudly display their cannabis culture daily and others hide in the shadows. Maybe you were arrested, maybe you’re paranoid, or maybe you’re just living in the wrong state.

 

4/20 is no stoner secret; it’s the one day a year where everyone thinks about marijuana,1ccddd17aecc3ea0a2df65187bed6636 and this year even Grandma.

 

Marijuana has been under attack in the USA for almost seventy years. Why is a plant that can more effectively treat cancer than any other option we have, against the law?

 

Marijuana should have never been persecuted and we can’t right that wrong with enough haste. Enough people have been wronged, enough lives lost, and enough money wasted. Now that the truth is being set free and we are on a steady slide into full legalization, the best thing to do is to talk about it. We have freedom of speech in this country for a reason; we need to use it!

 

California native and cannabis activist, Coral Reefer suggested in one of her Stoney Sunday webisodes we make 4/20 our “coming out” day. This would be a day that we as a “taboo community” come out of the closet, if you will. No one is telling you how to do it but the one thing we can all do is share our relationship with cannabis with others. Rather than take to the streets like a mob, introduce someone who doesn’t know about the benefits of cannabis to your world.

 

Warning SignThe hardest people for me to tell were my parents. They have both never smoked a day in their lives and it wasn’t an easy thing to explain. Months later, they saw first hand the way cannabis alleviates my pain from Late Stage Lyme Disease. They even had to help me medicate when the pain was so excruciating! Now they share my story with everyone they know to encourage more people to get passionate about cannabis legalization.

 

I’m pledging today, 4/20 will forever be the day we all talk to someone new in our lives about cannabis. Will you take the pledge with me?

MMJ Patient Alexis’ Update:

Posted on Categories Health and MedicineLeave a commentBy

It’s fall and the trees are changing colors. Our closets, however, are bright green with healthy vegetative mother strains. Our last harvest was in early July and lasted until October. Every cycle, the cannabis quality increases and the house fills with the pungent aroma of rich citrus. Aaron and I just moved to Hayward, a half-hour outside of San Francisco. I need to be closer to my infectious disease doctor, Dr. Steven Harris in Redwood City, CA, so that when the time is right, I can commence my next round of antibiotics. Conveniently, the rest of my doctors are each now within a thirty-minute drive of me.

 

I attended a Lyme Conference in February, at which the most successful doctors treating Lyme in the country lectured about the latest relevant beliefs and treatment methods. Because the CDC refuses to recognize Late Stage Lyme disease, this is the only way for me to get information I trust. They explained that one of the most important things to understand is that Lyme hides behind all other infections and other health complications that require the attention of the immune system. Only after everything else has been abated, can you begin to actually fight the Lyme infection. I am working on locating and conquering all of my overlying health complications. The first one I have identified is TMJ.

 

I am seeing Dr. Sandor Hites, DDS in Berkeley, CA where he oversees homeopathic treatments that are not covered by insurance to remove the necrosis (bone death) from my four wisdom teeth sites. I experienced my fourth and final oral surgery, in which my doctor removed the necrosis from the last of four sites. Bone death causes extreme sharp shooting pain down from my shoulders into my arms, which is classified as a form of TMJ.

 

It is crucial to see a chiropractor in conjunction with your dentist when treating TMJ. I made an appointment to see a chiropractor, Dr. Bloink down in Los Gatos, CA who was recommended by my infectious disease doctor. While sitting across from him, I shared my story trying desperately to highlight what I believed were the necessary details.

 

“You suffered from a birth trauma,” Dr. Bloink responded, looking down to write more notes. “I should be able to fix your light sensitivity right now.”

 

Aaron and I look at each other through squinted eyes. Did he just diagnose me with “birth trauma,” without even touching me?

 

“Go ahead and lie down on your back,” The doctor motioned to his massage table. Whenever I see one of these, I wish my bed at home also had a hole for my face. The doctor sits behind me and pushes on different parts of my skull and around my eyes. The pressure was intense. I had to remind myself to keep breathing.

 

“This will never hurt this bad again.” Dr. Bloink donned, a blue rubber glove and, with his non-gloved hand, opened, his door and jutted his head out.

 

“Can I have some help in here?” He looked back to me. “This is going to relieve a lot of the pressure behind your eyes.”

 

The polite lady, Lisa, who works his front desk, entered the examining room and took a seat above my head.

 

“Can you give me an occiput?” Dr. Bloink asked.

 

She gently lifted my head and placed one hand underneath the base of my skull and the palm of her other hand on top of my forehead. Her hands smelt faintly of lavender.

 

“Go ahead and open your mouth. This might hurt but it will only hurt this one time,” Dr. Bloink took two fingers of his gloved hand and pushed up on the outskirts of the roof of my mouth. My eyes immediately became teary from the pressure and the pain made me clench my fists. But I was determined to allow him to do what had to be done. I tried to relax my mouth and my neck and focused on my breathing.

 

“Close your jaw but don’t bite down,” He moved his fingers to the outside of my upper jaw and pushed there also. The pain was excruciating but, after a moment, he suggested, “Okay sit up now and look out the window.”

 

I sat straight up and looked into the slits of the dark wooden blinds. I was able to just look into them. No squinting. No instant pain. I looked over at Aaron, as his eyes began to tear; and a huge smile blossomed on my face.

 

I glanced at Dr. Bloink, “I haven’t been able to do that for two years.” I was able to breathe easier and to hear more clearly and loudly. It was as if someone had just detailed the inside of my skull.

 

Over the last few months I continue to see Dr. Bloink about twice a week and per his recommendation, I have seen a new dentist who makes night guards and a nutritionist. I am focusing on strengthening my core from the inside out. I do not take supplements at random waiting to see if they affect my health in some indirect way. Dr. Bloink prescribes me supplements to remedy specific organs. I feel what is happening in my body and for the first time since I was finally diagnosed, I understand why and what I am taking and what it will do for my body. I still need to medicate with cannabis daily to maintain a normal life but I can see my path ahead of me and I am headed in the right direction.

 

Before I was struck with Lyme, I thought that diseases were only for the elderly or people with poor diets. Sadly, it turns out they’re for anyone. They aren’t racist or sexist or ageist. What I have also learned, however, is that disease does not have to be the end of my story. I do not believe that an illness is a reason to give up on goals that seem out of reach. I am studying to take the GMAT so that, when I am feeling well enough, I can attend business school. I refuse to live as if my life is on pause.

 

As I start the next chapter in my life, I listen to what my body is telling me. I do not believe for a second that those of us residing in chronic pain were meant to endure for nothing. I find motivation and a will to live knowing that we are paving the way so that future generations will have a better answer.

 

Happy Halloween to all and Thank you UnitedPatientsGroup.com for supporting the cause and increasing awareness!

Buying in the Shops VS. Growing at Home: Which is Right for You?

Posted on Categories Gardening, Health and MedicineLeave a commentBy

Marijuana is no longer a hippie subculture accessory, but rather a medicinal herb that may trump some of the most commonly used pills and over the counter palliatives. Chances are you or a loved one have stood in line at a pharmacy when you have been sick, well visiting a dispensary or co-op is no different.

Those using cannabis after being diagnosed with a serious illness want access to the safest medicine available. It’s important to know that the proper care and procedures were taken to ensure mold and pests will not be an issue. Most shops sell a wide variety of the highest quality lab-tested flowers, edibles, extracts, clones, and seeds available to the market.

 

The average patient more accustomed to visiting a pharmacy when in need of medicine may not have the time nor interest in mastering the behind-the-scene farming. There is nothing wrong with that. If this describes you, then a simple trip or in some cases a phone call to a delivery service is the best choice.

 

For some, growing is a superfluous hassle and for others, the process adds a therapeutic benefit. Studies show that being outside around nature can lower stress and therefore aid the immune system. If your needs are long-term, growing is the cheapest way of getting the medicine in bulk as the source is replenishing with proper care.

 

The largest perk to growing the medicine in the comfort of your own home is knowing exactly what goes into your cannabis by being in control of the environment in which it is grown. For many of us suffering from health complications, maintaining quality control can be a very important part of recovery. The incentives of growing, however, must be fairly weighed against not doing so.

 

First off, every piece of equipment you buy is an investment for an end product, which won’t arrive for months, if at all. The equipment can get very expensive if you desire to get the grade you see in the dispensaries and buy everything the sales guy recommends. So after setting up and getting started, how many times will it take you to get it right?

 

Chances are, no matter how hard you try, the first several harvest cycles will be less rewarding than the effort put forth. This process can get frustrating, but if you find that having a large surplus offsets consuming leafy, airy bud until mastering the production of dense, resin-packed flowers, persistence and attention to detail will get you the results you crave. Like raising children, the more love and time you devote, the better they turn out. The results can be a recurring source of pride and accomplishment. Home cultivation flourishes when these four factors exist:

 

1) Lots of extra time for both research and pruning type duties.

2) At least a little bit of investment money and space, even $100 can get you started.

3) The belief that gardening will help your overall sense of well-being.

4) Patience, it may take you years to get your first batch of primo cannabis.

 

Once the routines and habits of farming are established, you will start to feel a sense of unity and tranquility while in your garden. Growing isn’t right for everyone, but if you desire to test out your green thumb and find yourself with these four things and a medical marijuana license, happy gardening!

Medical Marijuana and Lyme Disease…Alexis’ Story

Posted on Categories Health and Medicine, HistoryLeave a commentBy

United Patients Group is happy to be here for all types of patients. One of our patients Alexis, has shared her struggle with Late Stage Lyme Disease and how she found relief in Medical Marijuana. This is her story…

 

My intense suffering has made me desperate for a solution. On the morning of June 6th, 2008, while working on a research paper, I suddenly felt a horrific slicing sensation as if a blender was tearing my left arm into pieces. I stared at the throbbing limb. It was so painful I expected it to be bleeding; yet, it appeared to be in perfectly fine condition. No attack, no implosion, just my nerves firing out of control, and me helpless to fight back. From that moment, my perception of life changed completely.

 

After almost two years of searching, I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia and multiple joint pain. At twenty years of age, a rheumatologist looked me in the eye and insisted, “You need to learn to deal with the pain because it is going to be like this forever. You can focus on maintaining a perfect diet and sleep schedule, and with exercise you might see little improvement. But don’t hold your breath.”

 

That wasn’t good enough for me. Pain is a signal to a problem, not a diagnosis. I wasn’t going to stop looking that easily. It took seven specialists and eleven trips to the emergency room before anyone could find my diagnosis. I suffer from Late Stage Lyme disease.

 

lyme-epidemicOn average, most Lyme patients go undiagnosed for five years. It is a cryptic condition. It wasn’t until I had symptoms in almost every system of my body that someone could put a name on what I was suffering from. My doctor explained to me that my disease is under wide debate in the medical community. The Center for Disease Control does not even recognize the chronic form.

 

Usually, being diagnosed sheds light on the situation. Not for a Lyme patient. Too little is known about the disease and its symptoms… My road to recovery with this disease is as unique as my dental records. The experience is different for every Lyme patient; the symptoms present head to toe. Yet, most of the victims maintain normal lives, hiding our painful truth behind our pride. A large percentage of us, myself included, look healthy to the naked eye. I know and feel my curse too intimately to ever be fooled.

 

Pain is an enigma. Our nerves are evolutionarily programmed to warn us of danger, of a problem in need of attention, but Lyme tricks the nerves into panic mode. I endure a litany of false alarms, and must distinguish when to listen. The pain in my left arm spread first to my right, then down my back and into my legs. I cannot sit in a chair or ride in a car for more than a half hour on a good day without experiencing severe discomfort in my legs and hips. I have developed circulation problems, muscle spasms, ocular migraines, nausea, light sensitivity, head pressure, depersonalization and fatigue. Sometimes I make cognitive errors in speech, and I suffer random anemic fainting spells. I won’t pretend these symptoms don’t frighten me, but over time they have simply become part of my new paradigm.

 

Living in chronic pain is a commitment to do battle. I have to fight for happiness, and forresearch of tick freedom. I have struggled to establish my particular, even alien, lifestyle. I initially devoted myself to this raging war and lost the first battle; several months of intravenous antibiotics left my digestive track in ruins. The day after Christmas 2010, I was rushed to the hospital to be diagnosed with hemorrhagic colitis. I was taken off antibiotics. Since then I’ve endured a colonoscopy and two endoscopies to diagnose me with gastritis, polyps, esophagitis, and a hiatal hernia. In June of 2011, I was diagnosed with numerous allergies including wheat, dairy, eggs, and tuna. This explains how I lost 25% of my body weight in the last year. I am 5’2” and I weigh 90 pounds if I consume on average 2,000 calories a day. My incessant nausea usually permits only that much.

 

My dreams and desires have been necessarily altered and adjusted to work around my limitations. My pain controls my freedom. I have been prescribed hydrocodone, oxycodone, lorazepam, and cyclobenzaprine. These narcotics changed my mood and personality, and did not relieve the relentless nerve pain.

My only relief stems from cannabis, but I am desperate for a more permanent solution to the problem. In the hospital, I have needed to have morphine or lorazepam through an IV to accomplish what smoking two grams of cannabis does on the comfort of my couch, in a fraction of the time. I understand the importance of peace in my bones.

 

Medical cannabis gives me tranquility. The escape from pain that it provides keeps me sane. It allows me to combat the nausea and keep my weight above dangerous levels. With its help I can sleep, use my arms, and even stop my muscle spasms and migraines. I am aware that my freedom is only through an independent agent. I prefer this life to an out-of-control mind-numbing narcotic addiction.

 

Although I cannot maintain a “normal” life, I am spending my free time writing my story to share with the world. I want to show that while it can be a daunting quest to heal the human body, there is hope to be found.

 

Even in something as unexpected as a flower.

 

Thank you United Patients Group for supporting the cause and increasing awareness!
