October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

I have two very good friends in the throes of a breast cancer diagnosis. One is at the very beginning. The cancer was just revealed to her two weeks ago and the other is one year out from a unilateral mastectomy and riding the roller coaster of subsequent mammograms, MRIs, and biopsies with the fear of cancer being found in the other breast.  Cancer is never easy no matter which end you are on.  There are so many life changing decisions that must be made and the oncologist always insist you keep your life as normal as possible.  But it is not normal. 

Most oncologist support the use of cannabis for an adjunct to traditional treatment.  One of my friends is choosing Rick Simpson Oil as her treatment and is foregoing chemotherapy. The other friend uses Full Spectrum CBD and surgery (radiation and chemo were not an option).

Wherever you may lie in the midst of a cancer diagnosis, as the patient or the supporter, please know there are options. Please know there is support. Credible research has found cannabis to decrease cancer cell spread, growth and blood supply.  (https://integrativeonc.org/news/research-blog/277-does-cannabis-cure-cancer).  It can also make life more comfortable regarding controlling neuropathic pain, increasing appetite and decreasing nausea. Look to see which options are right for you and your family and know we at Green Harvest Health are here to support you as cannabis advocates, physicians and friends.
