I quit chomotherapy!

I've had it with chemo! A little over a month ago I decided to stop taking chemo treatments. It was way too much for me. My husband and I researched and researched for alternative methods and found tons of info on it. We found a documentary about the Rick Simpson story called "Run From The Cure". We decided to try this but didn't know anyone who is a care giver in our small town. We had gone to a birthday party for my little niece at my brothers house and started talking about what we want to do. A couple that we didn't know was there and heard us talking. They are care givers for medical marijuana and I became a patient of theirs. I took meeting these people as a sign from God to try this method!! Being off chemo and on cannabis now for about 4 weeks, I have been feeling better and better. If you watch the video...(I will post the link)...you will see how they make the oil. Actually my caregiver thought that I would do better on raw cannabis rather than oil because I really don't want any kind of a "high". The raw cannabis does not get me high at all. I can work all day a feel great. I take the oil at night to help me sleep. I've always had that problem. I am so happy to feel good for a change. I know cannabis has a big stigma on it....but please keep an open mind and research for yourself. You can contact me any time and I would love to discuss this with you. There are thousands of cancer patients that have been cured of cancer with cannabis!! No side effects!! Here is the link http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0psJhQHk_GI. Take care girls and God bless!

Thanks so much Tara! Now I really feel better! I am not a very good writer and I should have chosen my words better and maybe there wouldn't have been so many negative responses. My husband is a very good writer...he wrote a couple of books and many papers for his work. I think I will have him proof read if I have to explain important info again! Thanks for posting this nice response. God Bless, Ginger

By the way Diane...I can't wait until that frowny face photo of yours becomes a smiley face!

I apologize if you are a legitimate poster, but claiming that "thousands of women" have been cured by cannabis strikes me as extremely irresponsible. There is no scientific evidence of this.

As a nurse practitioner and a 25 year survivor, I have seen many, many folks discontinue their therapy for many different reasons over the years. None of them are here standing with me today. Good luck to you and I hope to God that you are an exception, because I have said many, many times before the very worst side effect is the cancer itself.

There seems to be an alternate universe that somehow descended upon this board, the alternate universe where only absolute truths are disseminated on the internet/YouTube/You Name it. Where people without any medical or scientific education whatsoever decide on how cancer should be treated. Would that those of us who are Stage II,III,IV could avoid chemo, BUT CURRENTLY THERE IS NOTHING ELSE, nothing! Ginger Girl, am I correct that you are HER+? I was Stage IIB,HER+ IDC, Grade 3 - the most agressive, the fastest growing of all cancers, you are playing Russian Roulette with your life and so are the others (did I count correctly 4?) who advocate the Cannabis "Cure". Once more, all of you, give us proof, not vague terms like "testimonials". How did all the thousands upon thousands of dedicated, hard working and often ill paid scientists around the world miss what a care giver in your small town discovered?

The scientists around the world did not miss this. There is scientific research going on about this all over the world. Many universities in the USA and all over the world are also conducting their own research. There is no money in this because it is a plant that grew naturally all over the world for thousands of years...so the big pharmaceutical companies cannot patent it and profit from it. The doctors and hospitals will lose too. I can't provide links to all the medical journals and research papers on here. Believe me, my husband and I read them all. Some of the gals are researching on their own. It takes up quite a bit of my time reading them all, but it is worth it. As I said before cannabis is compatible with chemo. It really helps to relieve lots of side effects of chemo and still will kill cancer cells. And I said that I have to travel 100 miles away to get my meds from my care giver...he doesn't live in my small town. Here is a link to a good read about this....http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed?term=cannabis%20and%20breast%20cancer. It works on most cancers...not just breast cancer. God bless, Ginger

Please, Please, read this article.

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/09/19/marijuana-and-cancer_n_1898208.html

1. The study found that cnnabidiol, a non phsychoactive substance in marijuana stopped metastisis on cancer cells in a PETRI DISH!!!
2. The Cannabidiol will probably have to be injected or put in a pill form to be effective. NOT ENOUGH CANNABIDIOL CAN BE ABSORBED BY SMOKING!!!! I would think eating would not do it either though the article wasn't clear on this. The scientists refined the pot to obtain the cannabidiol to use in their studies.
3. Chemo is a PROVEN method of treatment and I KNOW it is working for me. MY stage IV had come through the nipple and remained an open sore for months. It has now healed after 2 infusions and the lump is gone (can't feel it).
Ginger I will be praying for you because I believe you are going to need it!
