HIV+ cured by CANNABIS TEA

HIV+ cured by CANNABIS TEA | Healing Chronic Pain & Disease | Scoop.it

Hi All! And greetings from South African Farm once again! This morning -22 September 2013 - I collected Henry Ngomezulu from Umkomaas Train Station. He has come donw from Johannesburg to join in the ONE LOVE CANNABIS PEACE MARCH happening in West Street, Durban, South Africa on Heritage Day. 

 

In 2002 he was diagnosed by the Zola Polyhealth Clinic in Soweto, Gauteng as being HIV +. He also had TB. 

 

He was devastated beyond belief. In thos days you had to have a blood count of under 300 to qualify for ARV's. 


So he remembered the stories of his African heritage from his grandmother, and obtained some marijuana - which of course is illegal in South Africa. 

Over the next few years he started brewing an infusion in hot water of cannabis which he would then breathe. Later he started drinking marijuana infused tea. In 2008 he went back to be tested and he was shown to be HIV-. He had himself tested three more times - and still he was negative. 

 

He ran his first marathon in 2010.

CDC study: Painkiller addictions worst drug epidemic in US history

CDC study: Painkiller addictions worst drug epidemic in US history | Healing Chronic Pain & Disease | Scoop.it

Fatal overdoses have reached epidemic levels, exceeding those from heroin and cocaine combined, according to the CDC. Prescriptions for painkillers in the United States have nearly tripled in the past two decades and fatal overdoses reached epidemic levels, exceeding those from heroin and cocaine combined, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

 

At the same time, the first-ever global analysis of illicit drug abuse published this month by The Lancet, a British medical journal, found that addictions to heroine and popular painkillers, including Vicodin and OxyContin, kill the most people and cause the greatest health burden, compared to illicit drugs such as marijuana and cocaine.

 

High-income nations, such as the United States, United Kingdom and Australia, had the highest rates of abuse, 20 times greater than in the least impacted countries, according to The Lancet study.

In the United States, enough painkillers were prescribed in 2010 to medicate every American adult around-the-clock for one month.

 

Dr. Andrew Kolodny, president of Physicians for Responsible Opioid Prescribing, told Al Jazeera that the United States is facing a dangerous epidemic of overdoses and addictions related to painkillers. "According to the CDC, this is the worst drug epidemic in U.S. history," he said. "CDC has data demonstrating that around the same time doctors began aggressively prescribing these medications in the late 1990s, there have been parallel increases in rates of addiction."

 

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Kolodny said, is "failing miserably" at curbing the epidemic.

 

"The way to turn this epidemic around is for doctors to prescribe painkillers more cautiously," he said. But that can only happen, Kolodny said, when the FDA changes labeling requirements for painkillers, "making it easier for medical schools and the larger medical community to prescribe these meds more cautiously." He called current FDA-approved labeling "very broad," because the drugs have no suggested maximum dose nor suggested duration of use.

 

Kolodny is part of a group of health officials who signed a citizens' petition (PDF) in 2012 urging the FDA to change labeling requirements on how and when doctors should prescribe painkillers. The group called on the FDA to limit the drugs' approved use to those suffering from "severe" pain, as opposed to the current FDA-approved standard of "moderate to severe pain."

 

FDA spokeswoman Morgan Liscinsky, however, said that prescription painkillers are an important component of modern pain management. The FDA, she said, is working to balance the dual responsibility of addressing misuse, abuse and addiction with continuing to ensure appropriate access to effective pain management for patients who need these medications. 

 

The FDA "is extremely concerned about the inappropriate use" of painkillers, she said, "which has become a major public health challenge for our nation," and the agency "is committed to ongoing efforts to address the problem and supports broader initiatives to address this public health problem, including regulatory, educational and scientific activities."

This article appears on my page becuase painkillers are a popular and serious type of drug. Painkillers in the US have almost tripled in the past 20 years, more than heroin and cocaine. In 2010, enough painkillers were perscribed to medicate every American adult are the clock for one month. A person just getting perscribed to pain killers would benefit from reading this because it serves as a warning to what could happen to someone that got addicted. This article relates to drug addiction because painkillers are highly addictive. 

Courtney Wyche's curator insight, December 12, 2013 9:13 AM

This is crazy. I thought it was bewildering when it said that perscriptions and overdoses from painkillers have tripled. I feel like the FDA should change labeling on painkillers as soon as possible to stop this epidemic.

Jaid Gilbert's curator insight, December 13, 2013 10:14 AM

"In the United States, enough painkillers were prescribed in 2010 to medicate every American adult around-the-clock for one month."

 

Why are doctors prescribing so much pain medication? Not ever case needs pain medication. A lot of people will fake being in pain in order to get their hands on the pian medications. I believe that it is okay to prescribe pain medicaiton, but in moderation.

600 Reasons Turmeric May Be The World's Most Important Herb

600 Reasons Turmeric May Be The World's Most Important Herb | Healing Chronic Pain & Disease | Scoop.it

There is a medicinal spice so timelessly interwoven with the origins of human culture and metabolism, so thoroughly supported by modern scientific inquiry, as to be unparalleled in its proven value to human health and well-being.

 

Indeed, turmeric turns the entire drug-based medical model on its head. Instead of causing far more side effects than therapeutic ones, as is the case for most patented pharmaceutical medications, turmeric possesses hundreds of potential side benefits, having been empirically demonstrated to positively modulate over 160 different physiological pathways in the mammalian body.
While no food or herb is right for everyone, and everything has the potential for unintended, adverse side effects, turmeric is truly unique in its exceptionally high margin of safety vis-à-vis the drugs it has been compared with, e.g. hydrocortisone, ibuprofen, chemotherapy agents. Furthermore, nothing within the modern-day pharmaceutical armamentarium comes even remotely close to turmeric's 6,000 year track record of safe use in Ayurvedic medicine.[1]

Coconut Oil Pulling Detox

 

 I have a habit of asking healthy, thriving seniors what their secret to longevity is.

 

I get a mixture of old wives’ tales as well as tried and true practices (drink lots of water daily, don’t drink alcohol, eat five veggies a day, don’t smoke). Occasionally I get an answer that piques my interest and leads me to do research and experimentation.

 

Oil Pulling was one of those interesting suggestions. I can say, after having done it for quite a while now…it really works. This is an ancient Ayurvedic practice used to detox the body with results like:
