Have had my second appt. with my new rheumy and we had a really good discussion on this. When asked what all I am using it for I explained using it for pain, anxiety, insomnia, appetight stimulant & nausea. I told him about making an extract for when the fibro pain is really having a good time with me and I rub just a little bit in my neck, low back and hips. It relieves the pain and allows me to sleep. I am very happy with the herbal extract which you can take orally also. the doc said he would rather see me getting loaded up on this than pain killers and muscle relaxers. He also said that he believes that the medical comunity should do more research in this area. No this wasn't some young new guy, he was an old fart, older than me:~}
Kinda interesting on a side note. I was checking out a story about juicing marijuana. wow. sounds promising but then again don't alot of ideas. and the amount you would have to have fresh, not dry, every day even in a state where it is legal would still not be practical to grow. With the juicing you do not get the high they said. there was a particular makeup of the plant, I cant remember what it was called, I think CBD, but it sounds like this is the stuff they need to look at for autoimmune diseases.
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our tribulations, that we may be able to comfort those who are in any trouble, with the comfort wich we ourselves are comforted by God. 2 Corinthians 1:3
