Natural Cures Not Medicine ~
 
An insect bite seems like a minor annoyance, but when from an infected tick it can cause Lyme disease which is often be life changing.
~
Now the effect of cannabis, and in particular cannabis oil, on this notorious disease is being investigated.
 
Lyme disease is caused by the bacterium borrelia burgdorferi and is passed to humans through the bite of infected ticks. Ramblers, campers, mountain bikers and other people who take part in outdoor pursuits are often advised to be vigilant in checking for signs of tick bites, because the effects of Lyme disease can be devastating and life changing.
 
Typical symptoms include fever, headaches, chronic fatigue, swollen lymph nodes and a characteristic skin rash known as erythema migrans or the bulls-eye rash due to its form. If left untreated or misdiagnosed the infection can spread to joints, the heart, and the nervous system (i).
 
Unless you were aware of being bitten by a tick it is often wrongly diagnosed as symptoms worsen with time and can also be similar to fibromyalgia, lupus, MS or Parkinson’s.
 
Traditional treatments have involved long term antibiotics which have not been proven to completely get rid of the organism responsible, with the resultant well documented damage that long term or over prescribed antibiotics have on our bodies and the bacteria they are meant to combat.
 
Now cannabis is gaining interest from experts as a way of relieving symptoms but also to possibly get rid of the disease causing bacteria altogether.
Patients using it as relief have often suffered from serious damage to the gastrointestinal tract as a result of having a long term prescription for harsh antibiotics or strong painkillers. It eases nausea as well as muscle and joint pain.
 
But specialists are looking to cannabis oil to eradicate symptoms all together. Cannabis oil is a highly concentrated substance extracted and then reduced from large amounts of cannabis leaves and is often referred to as Rick Simpson’s Oil. The key active compounds are tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) in addition to other cannabinoids. Numerous studies have referred to the miraculous healing properties of this oil and as a result of irrefutable evidence, especially with its’ ability to cure cancers, big Pharma has recently applied to patent cannabis as ‘a cure’ (ii)
 
Lyme disease patients have reported a complete disappearance of all symptoms including seizures as well as pain and immobility. Some patient testimonies have come from people who had suffered with Lyme disease for many years and suffered through misdiagnosis and ineffective conventional treatments. Some were wheelchair bound and debilitated to the extent that they were unable to walk, talk or even eat independently. However following treatment with cannabis oil they have made staggering recoveries to the point where they are free from all symptoms and appear to be ‘free’ of the disease.
 
Could this be an effective cure for Lyme disease?
 
The changes to these patients and their families are completely life changing and the medical industry cannot continue to ignore the healing power of this plant and cannabis oil.
 
Could this be an effective cure for Lyme disease?
