Life is a natural process resulting from flowing energy organizing mass. As we age the organization deteriorates and manifests as the various age-related illnesses including cancers. The creative nature of life is overpowered by misdirected energy flow. As a consequence, cancer a cell’s survival is directed by cellular metabolic survival efforts rather than organismic survival. They have become selfish cells instead of cooperative ones. All cancer cells, whether genetic or environmentally induced, result from misdirected energy flow.
Health restoration is best promoted by manipulating the energy flow that sustains life. The endocannabinoid system has emerged as nature’s solution for the adaptability that it selects for. In order to build the complex flow dependent biochemical systems that characterize life, it was essential to gain better control of the “friction of life,” free radicals. Why “essential”, because a single free radical molecule can kill a person and every day each of our tens of trillion of cells sustains 20,000 free radical damages, any one of which could be lethal. Hence we can easily see that misdirected energy flow, associated excess free radical production, is responsible for all age-related illnesses.
The endocannabinoid system is the master regulator of safe energy flow and regulates the health of all body systems. The complex weave of interacting flow dependent structures determines health and illness. Modern man is imbalanced in that, both metabolically and societally, we generate too much waste by using excess pollution-generating, dangerous but efficient means of energy production. Excess carbohydrates drive the dangerous free radical producing electron transport system rather than sufficiently repairing infrastructure, and sufficiently recycling free radical-damaged biochemical structures.
When cells burn fat (beta-oxidation), they are in fact turning on the recycling (autophagy) of free radical damaged subcellular biochemical components. Our approach to cancer treatment is to disrupt the cancer cell’s survival-directed biochemical pathways that allow cell survival under conditions that would otherwise lead to free radical induced cell death (apoptosis, necrosis). Our approach to restoring a person’s health is to promote recycling of free radical damaged cellular components, and the replacement of lost dead cells by promoting stem cell-directed replacement.
Large number of cancers form solid tumors while blood cancer types such as leukemias do not form solid tumors.
Cannabis has helped increase the quality of life for a large number of cancer patients around the world from nausea, vomiting, reducing pain and inflammation, fighting the side effects of chemotherapy and increasing appetite.
The National Cancer Institute admits that marijuana kills cancer cells in their recent article where they stated that “THC slowed the growth of lung cancers, breast cancers, and virus-induced leukemia…” and “prolonged their lives by as much as 36%.”
Dr. Manuel Guzman from Madrid’s Complutense University discovered that THC could selectively induce programmed cell death in brain tumor cells with impacting healthy cells. In 2012 a pair of scientists found THC stops metastasis in many kinds of aggressive types of cancer as per the California Pacific Medical Center.
In recent years a large number of research studies and scientific reports on cannabis and cancer have appeared with incredible testimonials from young patients to seniors desiring to increase the quality of life and seeing further healing.
Stories like Alysa Erwin who suffered from anaplastic astrocytoma and utilized cannabis oil with a combination of cannabis product types to help the effects of cancer, radiation and surgery. Even when she stopped taking the preventative maintenance dose of cannabinoids and the cancer came back into her ventricles, brain stem and spinal fluids. She decided for a second time to utilize cannabis oil this time in the hospital with the acknowledgement of her doctors, “Keep doing what you’re doing.” She is cancer free once again at age 19 with her first diagnosis occurring at the tender age of 14.
Cancer patients are starting to spread the education and compassion of how cannabis helped their cancer by recommending cannabis by becoming pro-active with their doctors and having a true heart to heart with facts, research and testimonials with a combination of other alternative treatment techniques and supplements. This manner of introduction will not only help your doctor become educated in cannabinoid therapeutics but will assist future cancer patients who will ask about cannabis as a viable cancer treatment.
