Chronic pain and opiate addiction have ruined countless lives and changed the landscape of medicine. Know the RISK of opiods and the life long benefits of using a natural alternative.
Some patients feel let down by the medical system when they are denied effective treatment for chronic pain. Others feel injured by medical providers who have started them on opiate medications that have led to addiction and ruined their lives. Healthcare providers feel frustrated that they cannot do more to safely help patients with chronic pain, guilty for providing effective short-term treatments with harmful long-term effects, and depleted of compassion for patients who need help.
Chances are the prescription meds and pharmaceuticals you’re taking aren’t working or they’re causing harmful side effects, even addiction. Discover how The Sacred Plant, a natural, non addictive and non toxic plant extract can help treat, beat, and heal your pain or disease in the Season 2 docuseries “The Sacred Plant: Healing Secrets Examined.”
Quick Summary of The Health Effects of Cannabis – Dr Dustin Sulak
Nervous System: Cannabinoids have been shown to reduce the intensity of pain, including inflammatory pain, neuropathic pain, and cancer pain.
Digestive System: Cannabis has broad effects in the digestive system, including increasing appetite, reducing nausea and vomiting, inhibiting acid secretion, relaxing smooth muscle, decreasing pain, decreasing inflammation, and decreasing motility, thereby relieving cramps and diarrhea.
Metabolism: Cannabinoids influence the hormones that control appetite and fat metabolism. Despite increasing appetite, several studies have now shown that cannabis users are less likely to be obese and diabetic than their non-cannabis using counterparts.
Cardiovascular system: Cannabis exerts bidirectional effects on the cardiovascular system – it can increase or decrease both heart rate and blood pressure. Typical doses of cannabis slightly decrease blood pressure and increase heart rate. Cannabinoids can dilate blood vessels, improving blood flow, and animal studies suggest that some cannabinoids could prevent or reduce atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries).
Eyes and Ears: Cannabis can lower the pressure in the eye, and important benefit for those with glaucoma, and the cause of the “red eye” side effect. Cannabinoids can protect the optic nerve in glaucoma and other diseases of the eye. Cannabis has also been shown to acutely improve night vision.
Reproductive System: Most human male and female reproductive tissues, such as uterus and testis, manufacture and degrade endocannabinoids to control hormones, fertility, implantation and development of the embryo, and inflammation.
Soft Tissue and Joints: Cannabinoids can modulate bone remodeling, oftening promoting bone growth and inhibiting bone resorption, and some are currently being studied for prevention and treatment of osteoporosis.
Respiratory System: Cannabis can dry upper respiratory secretions, similar to its action on saliva and vaginal secretions, which may be of benefit to individuals with a runny nose or severely-ill patients at risk of choking on secretions. Cannabis has been shown to dilate, or open, the airways in the lungs, potentially improving oxygen intake. It can act as an expectorant, helping clear phlegm. Patients have reported using vaporized cannabis to help with asthma and COPD.
Immune System: The immune system is partially controlled by our body’s own cannabinoids, and using cannabis can certainly affect immune function in complex ways, often suppressing certain aspects of the immune system while stimulating others. Over-all, cannabinoids have anti-inflammatory properties, and have shown benefit in inflammatory conditions such as Crohn’s disease and multiple sclerosis. Cannabinoids, terpenes, and other substances in the plant also have antibacterial properties, including potent activity against antibiotic resistant infections like MRSA.
Cancer: Cannabinoids have been shown to target and affect cancer cells differently than normal, healthy cells. In various types of cancer, cannabinoids have been shown to prevent tumor growth, trigger cell death, prevent the formation of blood vessels that feed the tumor, and inhibit the metastasis of cancer from one part of the body to another. While we are still very early in our understanding of how to best use cannabis to fight different types of cancer, it is well-established that cannabis can help with the symptoms of cancer and the side effects of cancer treatment, and can be used to enhance the anticancer effects of conventional treatments.
