Fight thyroid cancer with cannabis oil. There are choices these days for patients who have cancer. If medical cannabis oil is legal where you live, get hold of some and start to treat yourself. But how can you fight thyroid cancer with cannabis oil? And how can cannabis oil be of any use to cancer sufferers? These are the questions we at Cannabis Therapy want to answer, with the truth. We believe in the natural healing powers of cannabis oil.
Significant cannabinoids in cannabis are extracted to make the oils. Cannabidiol (CBD) is a side-effect-free compound known for its anti-inflammatory and calming qualities. Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is psychoactive and, while an excellent therapy, does make you high and is used a lot as a recreational drug. Let us look a little closer at how cannabis oil can help fight thyroid cancer.
The Thyroid Explained
In the middle of your neck is an endocrine gland called the thyroid. It may be small but it is vital for good health. The thyroid regulates metabolic rate and produces hormones. These two hormones, thyroxine (T4) and triiodothyronine (T3), flow into the bloodstream and help the body’s cells to work as they should. If too much thyroxine is produced by your endocrine gland, you have hyperthyroidism or an overactive thyroid. This leads to weight loss, heat intolerance, anxiety, and, sometimes, sore and gritty eyes. If too little thyroxine is produced for the body’s needs, you have hypothyroidism. You feel very tired, cold, depressed, battle to concentrate and put on weight. It is the tiny pituitary gland in your skull, beneath your brain, that regulates the level of thyroid hormones in your blood stream. If the level of these hormones drops, the pituitary gland releases thyroid stimulating hormone to activate the thyroid gland to regulate the T3 and T4 levels.
Understanding Thyroid Cancer
Thyroid cancer is rare but doctors are coming across more cases. Many lumps in the thyroid turn out to be benign but there are several kinds of thyroid cancers out there. These can be treated using surgery, radioactive iodine or both. Women get thyroid cancer more than men and about 2/3 of people who get thyroid cancer are younger than 55. The cancer type all relates to what cell type inside the thyroid is cancerous. But it can be treated immediately. And now there is cannabis oil as a medical option to fight thyroid cancer.
Cannabis Oil in the Fight Against Thyroid Cancer
Cannabinoids like CBD have natural abilities to re-balance an unbalanced immune system. When the body’s endocannbinoid system is out of balance, dis-ease results. Cancer is the end result if this is not fixed as soon as possible. Numerous studies show how CBD treats infections, inflammation, insomnia, pain, depression and anxiety. Many of these symptoms are associated with thyroid cancer. Cannabis can adjust receptors in the body that control metabolism with no negative side effects. Thyroid medications are known to cause heart palpitations, fever, sweating, lack of sleep and nausea. CBD treats all of these side effects, as well as the actual disease. During research into cancer and the use of cannabinoids to fight it, scientists discovered that cannabinoids force cancer cells to commit suicide, instead of continually multiplying and dividing as they do. This also stops tumours forming.
How do Cannabinoids Help Against Thyroid Cancer?
Cannabinoid receptors exist on the thyroid gland cells and more are found inside the hypothalamic paraventricular nucleus area of the brain – that sends signals to the thyroid to ensure its activities are regulated. The cannabinoid receptor, CB1, does affect neuron activity in the thyroid and, when CBD is taken, it also influences these receptors. The endocannabinoid system strives to maintain a sense of homeostasis in the body. When things are out of balance, CBD will bind to the relevant receptors to assist the brain and body to respond. Cannabinoid receptors in the brain can then send messages to the thyroid to help manage its activities, keeping the healthy balance. The receptors therefore regulate the release of T3 and T4 which affects the health of the thyroid.
You can fight thyroid cancer with cannabis oil. This natural anti-inflammatory also works with the receptors in the thyroid to influence thryroid health. Take it alongside your normal medication and see if it is successful. Then later maybe you can drop your normal medication altogether. Chat to Cannabis Therapy about our cannabis oils.
