Medical Marijuana: The Alternative Treatment For Chronic Illness

Take Control Of Your Health, Manage Your Symptoms, Live Your Best Life

Effective Pain Relief

With chronic pain robbing more people of their quality of life than heart disease, cancer, and diabetes combined more and more people are turning to medical marijuana as a popular, natural alternative to opioids and other traditional medications. Medical marijuana can be used to combat chronic pain when it is a symptom of a variety of conditions, including terminal cancer.

Boost Your Immune System

Strengthen your immune system with medical marijuana. Suppress the abnormal cell development certain diseases cause in the brain, nervous system, digestive tract, joint tissues and cartilage. Cannabinoids effectively slow the progression of such illnesses while reducing the symptoms and inflammation caused by Parkinson’s disease and other neurodegenerative conditions.

Stabalize Mood & Emotions

Anxiety, stress and depression can be symptoms of many diseases. Medical marijuana is an effective way of stabalizing your emotional state and boosting your mood by lowering your brain’s responses to negative stimuli. The activity in your brain occurring in response to negative stimulation has been linked directly to mental illness and low mood.

What Is Medical Marijuana?

Medical marijuana uses the marijuana plant or chemicals in it to treat diseases or conditions. It’s basically the same product as recreational marijuana, but it’s taken for medical purposes.

The marijuana plant contains more than 100 different chemicals called cannabinoids. Each one has a different effect on the body. Delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD) are the main chemicals used in medicine. THC also produces the “high” people feel when they smoke marijuana or eat foods containing it.

The many health benefits include relief from pain and nausea and an increase in immune function, mood regulation, vascular health and digestive function. 

Medical marijuana comes in a range of forms, including oil for vaporizing, pills, oral solutions and topical applications. The quickest effects occur with inhalation of the vaporized form.

Texas Compassionate Use Program

The Texas Compassionate Use Act became law in June 2015, and allowed low-THC medical cannabis to be used as a treatment for epilepsy. The Program was expanded in June 2019, and medical cannabis can now be used as a treatment for a wide variety of conditions, including:

Alzheimer’s Disease
Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis
Multiple Sclerosis
Parkinson’s Disease
Terminal Cancer
Huntington’s Disease

Our physicians can prescribe low-THC to you if you have a qualifying condition and we determine that the treatment will be beneficial to you.

Struggling With Terminal Cancer?

If you are living with the gruelling symptoms of terminal cancer, including the brutal side effects of chemotherapy, medical marijuana can help. It is known to treat nausea and vomiting and increases the appetite, alleviating the exhaustion that can follow chemotherapy treatment. 

Not only this, medical marijuana can also be an effective treatment for pain and insomnia. It can help to relieve the emotional symptoms of a terminal diagnosis, including depression. There have even been studies to show that medical marijuana may slow the growth of tumors – potentially improving the quality and length of life.

Battling Neurodegenerative Disease?

Neurodegenerative diseases (such as Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s) lead to the progressive degeneration and death of nerve cells. These nerve cells, or neurons, normally don’t replace themselves – so when they die, the body can not create new ones. This can cause issues with movement and mental functioning. 

Medical marijuana has advantageous neuroprotective and anti-inflammatory qualities, helping to protect the neurons. This has the effect of slowing, preventing and perhaps even reversing the effects of neurodegenerative diseases. 

Diagnosis of a neurodegenerative disease can be a difficult time emotionally, in many cases leading to anxiety and depression. Medical marijuana helps to combat these conditions, improving your standard of life.
