Cancer Disappears Thanks to Cannabis Oil Treatment
A recent report in the UK Independent newspaper tells the story of a 48-year-old woman who tried cannabis oil to cure her brain tumour – and succeeded. She is now free from cancer and a true believer in cannabis oil.
Four years ago, doctors discovered a malignant and untreatable tumour in Lynn Cameron’s brain. Her life reeled before her eyes when she was told she had between 6 and 18 months left to live. She immediately went the conventional medicine route, enduring many Chemotherapy treatments and Radiotherapy.
But, sadly, all scans showed that this unhealthy mass of cells in her brain was not getting any smaller. Cameron could not believe that she had been diagnosed with stage 4 terminal brain cancer – and she was determined to try harder to save her life.
Then a friend told her about cannabis oil and proposed that she try it. Cameron felt afraid as the cannabis oil was illegal (the year was 2013) but, ultimately, she tried it – and she is still alive today. She began to take the cannabis oil dosage under her tongue as she heard that this ensured it acted faster.
Cannabis oil is a natural, alternative medicine and Cameron therefore read up on natural ways to kill cancer. She stopped eating acidic foods, concentrating on eating alkaline nutrients. She also stopped all sugar and processed foods. Every time she went for a scan, the tumour was getting smaller. Cameron was convinced it was the work of the cannabis oil as her doctors were adamant that even the Chemotherapy and Radiotherapy would not be able to help her.
But she kept quiet about her use of cannabis oil as, not only was it illegal, but so too were her doctors very sceptical about such natural medicines. They had never even touched on the subject at medical school so, for them, it wasn’t even an option. When her brain tumour completely disappeared, Cameron knew that this was the work of the cannabis oil, a miracle panacea.
When the sixth brain scan showed no cancer, Cameron decided to tell her doctors about her cannabis oil treatment. Their reactions were total disbelief. They even scoffed at her natural and organic diet. How ironic that the very doctors who told Cameron that the cancer would kill her were now disregarding the success of cannabis oil in treating her brain tumor!
Cameron notes that her survival was up to her. The use of cannabis as a treatment for cancer was not a priority in those days – especially by the medical profession. There was no mention of cannabis research in the British Medical Journal either.
Today Cameron is one of a growing tribe of cannabis oil followers who swear by its natural health properties. There are many more stories about how this plant has cured cancer but doctors and researchers still warn that people must be aware that there is no real proof that cannabis oil does in fact cure cancer.
Studies done in laboratories and using animals have shown that cannabinoids do have various impacts on cancer cells. But there is not enough indication from clinical trials that cannabinoids can be safe and effective enough to treat cancer.
Does Cannabis Cure Cancer?
Scientists are still awaiting the findings from research on the use of cannabis to kill cancer cells but tests are showing that tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) can kill tumours.
A team of Spanish researchers are presently doing tests to find out whether cannabinoids can kill brain cancers called gliomas. This aggressive cancer usually gives the patient no hope, even after surgery, chemotherapy and radiotherapy. Seventeen years ago, the team discovered that THC, the psychoactive compound in cannabis, killed glioblastoma cells by cutting off all blood supply to the tumour (starving the tumour) and forcing the cancer cells to commit suicide!
In a normal healthy body, cells grow old and die off naturally. This is called programmed cell death or apoptosis. During autophagy, the body naturally gets rid of old or damaged cells. But cancer cells do not do this – instead, they continue to develop and eventually create terrible tumours. The good news now is that THC can force these obstinate cancer cells to experience programmed cell death and die. When cannabis cannabinoids cling to the cancer cells, they are actually kick-starting the cell’s breakdown and it then dies.
It would seem that if a patient is to take cannabis oil such as THC to treat, and even kill, cancer, the kind of treatment would be unique per individual. Different patients would need different ratios of cannabinoids daily to work on their cancer cells. There is no one answer and there is no way to tell how the cannabis oil will work, or not.
The good news is that Lynn Cameron is still alive and she believes in cannabis oil as a cure for cancer. And there are more stories emerging where other people have survived cancer thanks to cannabis oil.
