Hi, i am going to let you make your own mind up about this as i know there will be some skeptics out there.
Cannabis oil has been legalised in 26 states in America, with doctors able to prescribe medicinal marijuana to patients with crohns disease, cancer, epilepsy etc. etc, plus COPD. You have people moving from one state to another so that they can get hold of this amazing medicine. I have been following people on a facebook page entitled "treating COPD with cannabis oil" and there are some amazing stories on there.
Those who have been following me will know that i have been researching this subject for months and 3 weeks ago a friend of mine managed to get hold of some weed and i made up a batch of suppositories and started taking them 3 times a day, which will be 3 weeks today. In fact i have to make another batch today. It's expensive to buy, so i am now growing my own...quite cheap once you have everything.
So, my background. 47 years of smoking, diagnosed with asthma and chronic bronchitis (copd) stage 1 mild with an FEV of 69% in March this year. In September i had a CT scan, which showed i also had emphysema. My pulmonologist then upgraded my status to moderate, possibly stage 2.
Yesterday i was due for a pulmonary function test to see if i was in fact stage 2, which entailed x rays and spirometry and was not allowed to take any medication at least 24 hours beforehand.
Had my x ray, did the spirometry, took 3 doses of ventolin, did the spirometry again 15 minutes later, then called into the doctor. He was looking at the spirometry results with a look of puzzlement on his face, so i was expecting the worst. In Thai he mumbled " i don't believe it" and proceeded to listen to my chest.
At this point i am still expecting the worst until he said.....your x ray is absolutely clear, i can't hear anything in your chest and your FEV has gone from 69% to 84% in 9 months. I believe you still have asthma, but your copd has either gone or it is very, very mild. What have you been doing? Needless to say i could not tell him about the can oil, so just told him that i had changed my diet. Which i have done, nothing dramatic as i have been having fruit smoothies for the past 5 years, but the last couple of months i have been juicing raw vegetables including beetroot.
He suggested i try stopping my medication, which is Spiriva and just take ventolin as and when required for my Asthma.
Because he does not believe the results, he has booked me in for another test in 2 months time.
So, is it the raw vegetables or the cannabis oil? I believe it is the latter and will be making another batch today.
This stuff works and it is criminal that a natural medicine is not made available to people just so pharmaceutical companies can make millions.
I don't believe in xmas, but that was one hell of a present i was given yesterday.
By the way, this is NOT a cure. I will have to keep taking the oil for the rest of my life.
Have a great new year.
I will update again after my test in February.
