The complete guide to all Medical Marijuana pros and cons

By Susan Leigh, published on Mar 9, 2014

...and accepted. The answer is simple- the relief that is given by administering Marijuana is instant and more effective as compared to most other drugs. The areas where Marijuana is used medically are mostly in chronic conditions like AIDS, arthritis, glaucoma, insomnia, epilepsy, migraines, cancer, multiple sclerosis, inflammation, and also in reducing nausea resulting from chemotherapy and to correct loss of appetite as well. The psychoactive quality of Marijuana is through its THC constituent and the psychological effects of the drug give great relief especially in periphery... (more)

...say, is that I am pretty sure that everyone believes that their life is precious. But how would you think if you found out that your had a disease that was terminal and you were told that you only had a few months to live?

The Fight Against Cancer-Don't Give Up!

By neil6, published on Mar 18, 2013

...a coward,

You're a robber and a thief,

And I swear your day is coming,

And it's a fact.........not just belief."

I'm writing this post as part of a Bloggers Unite, March 15th, 'Do The Right Thing' initiative by Tony Berkman. Both my blogs will feature stories about cancer victims and survivors. These are some of the bravest people you'll meet. They have to face down their demons and fight. The most inspirational blog I have ever read was by Australian cancer sufferer Kristian Anderson:- "There is a crack in everything- That's how the light get's in". Kristian... (more)

DAY 13: What's Up With The Drug Companies ?

By melanie jean juneau, published on Nov 15, 2012

Modern medicine's attitude towards cancer is to attack with all guns blazing, blasting the bad guy cancer cells and taking all the good guy cells down as well. It is an attack with chemo or radiation dedicated to a take no prisoners sort of philosophy. Wipe out the women and children cells, show no mercy because this is an epic war, a matter of life and death. The battles and skirmishes take their toll on the body but there is no other option offered. Let the doctors wage a major war campaign inside your body or die. Period. End of story.

If a patient mentions natural 'cures' to a modern-day... (more)

I'm No Expert...But

By DKIdea, published on Nov 12, 2012

I’m no expert...but I’d like to give a voice to the millions of people suffering and dying from cancer. I’m no expert, but I’m very familiar with cancer as it has taken away my mother, my aunt (her sister), many cousins and threatens to do even more. Cancer being what it is isn’t the issue I want to give voice to...but cancer being what it’s not: eradicated.

To be logically fair, there are so many types of cancer effecting so many different people that it may never be fully eradicated...but I’m a firm believer that more can be done to combat it and that the key to more successful treatments... (more)

Health for Profit

By DKIdea, published on Nov 11, 2012

...a time when doctors cured and treated ailments because they took an oath to do so...not because it was profitable. I’m not saying doctors shouldn’t get paid...I think they should, and quite well. I just think medicine shouldn’t be an industry that sacrifices health for money.

Take cancer for example. Where is the profitability in offering a cure? Once cancer is gone, all the money and funding for research is gone as well. Millions will be out of a job from those that make the chemicals for chemo to those that answer the phone at the institute. The well will run dry and billions ... (more)

Love and The Joy Of Hurting

By Barbara MacDonald , published on Jul 31, 2012

I know all of us have struggled with losing someone we love dearly. Some more then others. I found this and thought there was great comfort in these words. I hope they have the same effect on you. Love never dies, it lives in our memories forever. How could it be that someone who was part of your soul just disappears? Life is energy. Love is life. There is no way to put out energy, so therefore it follows that love is eternal also.

"Do you like what you do?" she asked me. "I write about happy things," I said. "Wait a minute. I've read your work. You made me cry sometimes,"... (more)
