Dr. Garcia's Groundbreaking Research
Medical Marijuana & Quantum Healing
In the year 2737 B.C. the emperor, Shen-Nung, who was a pharmacologist was the first to document the healing properties of Medical Cannabis (M.C.). He recommended its use int he constipation of gout, rheumatism, and as an anesthetic for pain relief, even for performing surgeries. The sativa type of cannabis was used for the latter.
The Egyptians were documented to use M.C. as early as 1700 B.C. They used M.C. suppositories for hemorrhoid pain.
In India, M.C. was used for the pain of childbirth, insomnia, headaches, and gastro intestinal complaints. The Greek used M.C. to dress wounds on themselves and their horses, also to expel tapeworms.
Medical marijuana is one of fifty fundamental herbs of traditional Chinese Medicine, and had been used for approximately 5,000 years in China.
The recent science behind medical marijuana is very interesting, Chronic inflammation is the common denominator for aging, cancer, heart disease, Alzheimer's and most other chronic diseases. Medical marijuana is an anti-inflammatory and antioxidant. Further research tells us there are approximately 85 cannabinoids in M.C. Some of them affect the body and others affect the mind. Therefore, pot is potentially the perfect body-mind medicine for most symptoms of disease.
The University of California was given an 8.7 million dollar grant to research the benefits of medical marijuana; their research clearly showed the effectiveness of M.C. for neuropathic pain of diabetes as well as neurological pain from damaged nerves such as in stroke, HIV, Aids, and other neurological injuries.
Other benefits include improvement in symptoms of nausea (especially from chemotherapy), Crohn's disease, and glaucoma. M.C. is also an antispasmodic. It will relieve spasms such as multiple sclerosis.
There is an endogenous natural cannabinoid (Anandamide). The cannabinoid has been proven to play a role in pain sensation, memory, and sleep. Therefore, M.C. augmentation can affect all these areas. Other cannabinoids have been shown to have appetite stimulating effects, antispasmodic properties, as well as, analgesic properties.
Its safely echoed by US DEA Chief Law Judge, Judge Franics Young, "Medical marijuana in it natural form is the safest therapeutically active substance known to man." Marijuana cannot induce a lethal response as a result of toxicity. Good news, since recently the government, the medical establishment, and patients are becoming aware of the danger of prescription drugs. In the United States the third leading cause of death is medical intervention, drugs.
Recent research out of the University of Oxford, In England, states THC has a direct effect on two major pain centers, the amygdale and the anterior cingulated cortex both of which are important in the propagation of pain. Also it had been found patients that use a combination of opioids, and M.C. use less narcotics. Therefore, the evidence is now available proving the value of medical cannabis. The list once again is that it has proven effectiveness for both neurological pain, originating in the body or mind.
In my opinion, Penicillin was the medical miracle of the 20th century. Medical marijuana will be the medical miracle of the 21st century, once all its benefits are discovered.
Furthermore, Medical Marijuana is the perfect adjunct to Quantum Medicine and Healing. It is a sound example of body, mind, spirit medicine, and that's what we practice at Quantum Medical.
