Medical Marijuana: Alleviating Cancer’s Side Effects & Destroying Cancer Cells

Medical MarijuanaWhether cancer treatment entails surgery, chemotherapy, radiation treatments, reconstructive surgery, or alternative therapies, the bottom line is that these individuals are sick! They are not feeling well and many times find it entirely overwhelming to function at all.
Chemotherapy is poisoning the cells, radiation is burning them, and surgeries can be invasive and complicated, to say the least. There are a plethora of prescription medications that are supposed to help you feel better faster and at a more comfortable rate, but the truth is many of them have extreme side-effects of there own, making it more difficult to live a normal life and to focus on self-healing, which is critical to cancer patients recovery.

Cannabis Alleviates the Side Effects of Cancer Treatment

Some of the most common side effects of cancer treatment are pain, nausea and vomiting, brain fog, extreme fatigue, loss of appetite, hormonal disruptions, weight gain, hot flashes, anxiety, and trouble sleeping. The good news is that there is an alternative therapy that many mainstream physicians agree helps their cancer patients recover more comfortably due to its ability to alleviate the aforementioned symptoms.
Medical Marijuana decreases the side effects of cancer treatment and medications and is becoming more widely accepted due to a large number of studies showing remarkable outcomes for patients. The varying levels of THC and CBD can be modified depending on your specific needs.
CBD (Cannabidiol) is excellent for controlling pain and fatigue. The THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), which causes marijuana’s high feeling is also excellent at controlling pain but also lessens nausea, vomiting, and anxiety. CBD is also is known to bind to receptors and is thought to regenerate cells and brain function, while THC helps to relax and alleviate the physical symptoms.
Killing Cancer Cells With Medical Marijuana
A Spanish microbiologist, Christine Sanchez, discovered the ability for cannabis to destroy cancer cells. She discovered that cannabidiol disrupts the cellular signaling inside the tumor cells and creates imminent cancer cell death.
The NIH (National Cancer Institute also puts out this statement regarding cannabis and cancer: “A review of 34 studies of cannabinoids in glioma tumor models found that all but one study showed that cannabinoids can kill cancer cells without harming normal cells.” Furthermore, in a Spanish study done in 2009, researchers at Complutense University established that THC generated the death of brain cancer cells by autophagy, which is increases cellular stress.
How Does Medical Marijuana Work?
Our brain and nerve cells have cannabinoid receptors, so our bodies naturally react to cannabis (medical marijuana). The structure of cannabis interacts directly with our cells. Our natural endocannabinoid system works synergistically with medical marijuana, creating a multitude of beneficial reactions in the body. The endocannabinoid cells have tiny receptors that take in chemicals and produce responses. This natural system in our bodies regulates things like mood, sleeping, immunity, pleasure, memory and much more.
Marijuana is also comprised of Terpenes, which are the green, healthy healing properties. There is an entourage effect of these chemicals when taken together. The ratios of THC and CBD can be manipulated for the patient’s benefit. These practices, experience, and education is what separates Omni Medical Services apart from the others.
