ABC News reported:
Doctors said two-year-old Cash Hyde would likely die after they found a stage 4 brain tumor surrounding his optic nerve just a year ago this week. And he nearly did. After being subjected to seven different chemotherapy drugs, the little boy from Missoula, Montana suffered septic shock, a stroke and pulmonary hemorrhaging.
Cash was so sick he went 40 days without eating. His organs were threatening to shut down. His father, Mike Hyde, intervened, slipping cannabis oil into his son’s feeding tube. Cash, now three, made a miraculous recovery at Primary Children’s Hospital in Salt Lake City, but his father’s bold action—taken behind the doctors’ backs—has raised serious questions about a parent’s role in medical treatment.
He was given the highest possible doses of chemotherapy for two months. He lost his appetite and threw up eight to 10 times a day. “When he started the chemo, he was so sick,” said Hyde. “For the first six weeks, he was blind. But his tumor was shrinking… It’s the nastiest thing to see someone you love go through this.”
By September, Cash had not been eating for 40 days. “He was suffering terribly, and the doctors said it was the best they could do for him,” said Hyde, who asked doctors to stop the chemotherapy drugs. Instead, Hyde boiled up marijuana he had purchased in Montana with olive oil and measured 3 mm doses that he poured into his son’s G-tube twice a day. “Not only was it helpful, it was a godsend. In two weeks he was weaned of all the nausea drugs, and he was eating again and sitting up in and laughing,” according to Hyde, who said doctors called his son’s recovery “a miracle.”
There is no surprise in the above clinical picture. Doctors, medical officials and the American federal government have got to be kidding themselves and everyone else with their negative and closed-minded attitudes toward medical marijuana. Though medical marijuana laws are being passed in state after state, oncologists prefer to remain stupid about how it can be used for cancer patients.
On the federal level the government and even the president prefer to remain cruel and hateful about marijuana—so much so that they would rather see the entire country destroyed by the war against drugs than show any consideration or empathy toward the plight of cancer sufferers and their need for safe, low-cost and effective cancer treatments. The violence in Mexico is an example of how such a war can destroy a country from within.
Cannabis (THC) can be found in the prescription drug Marinol.
Combining the two most common cannabinoid compounds in cannabis boosts the effectiveness of treatments to inhibit the growth of brain cancer cells and increase the number of those cells that die off. Researchers at the California Pacific Medical Center Research Institute (CPMCRI) combined the non-psychoactive cannabis compound, cannabidiol (CBD), with ?9-tetrahyrdocannabinol (?9-THC), the primary psychoactive active ingredient in cannabis. They found the combination boosts the inhibitory effects of ?9-THC on glioblastoma, the most common and aggressive form of brain tumor and the cancer that claimed the life of Sen. Ted Kennedy last year.
Is it really wise to treat children and adults with chemical poisons (chemotherapy) or radiation? Aren’t we already getting enough radiation exposure today thanks to the nuclear power industry (Fukushima)? Radiological departments need to dramatically reduce their use of radiation for diagnostic purposes and preferably eliminate its use for the treatment of cancer.
Today more than ever before we need a new paradigm for allopathic medicine! Since we cannot get rid of the field of contemporary medicine it needs to be reformed from the inside out and the only way to do that is to get into the underlying structure of its principles and practices and change them on a foundational level.
To be honest we know that this is as impossible as bringing Fukushima under control. It really is too much to expect doctors, especially pediatric oncologists, to understand that in an age of toxicity where patients are being heavily exposed to heavy metals, chemicals and radioactive particles, the last thing they need is exposure to more of the same via medical treatments and diagnostic procedures.
Dr. Linda Granowetter, a professor of pediatrics at New York University and chief of the Division of Pediatric Hematology and Oncology, told ABC News that Hyde’s intervention was “fascinating” but “somewhat bothersome. I think that the fact that he didn’t have the rapport and ability to be honest with the doctor is very troubling. Care is impeded when there is not complete trust.”
That this doctor actually believes what she is saying shows how impossible the situation is. How any doctor today could possibly believe that they merit such trust is beyond comprehension. Today doctors, especially pediatricians, are highly skilled in taking advantage of or abusing parents’ vulnerabilities and their fears about the medical treatment their children receive.
Thankfully the laws of natural selection are going to work their magic against such doctors and their treatments, for no one, including the government, is going to be able to afford them. Like big fat dangerous dinosaurs they will be crushed under the weight of the coming economic collapse.
Any doctor today who cannot grasp the reality that we are living in an age of toxicity full of poisonous chemicals, heavy metals and radioactive particles is a charlatan and a danger to society. It is a very bad situation that has just recently, and in the space of a very short period of time, gotten much worse.
Oncologists would rather have little kids like Cash die then have them take THC for their cancer.
Contemporary medicine is committing a form of mass suicide by not responding to the need to reduce people’s exposure to chemicals, radiation and heavy metals rather than adding to that exposure. Hopefully, a new medicine and a new field of dentistry will embrace as its most fundamental principle a reduction of exposure to poisons as a holy medical principle.
Dr. Linda Granowetter was quoted as saying, “We know from research that 30 to 60 percent of parents with children are giving them alternative meds like vitamins, shark tooth and herbs from Chinatown. That’s why we spend a lot of time asking parents what else they are giving kids and trying to be non-judgmental and work with them and guide them.” She said most pediatric oncologists are “open-minded” about alternative treatments.
I wonder who Granowetter thinks she is kidding with the mention of shark teeth and herbs from Chinatown. Did she mean shark cartilage? I have never heard of an open-minded pediatrician, have you? If you want to test them try speaking about your reasons to not vaccinate or try refusing chemo or radiation therapy once it has been indicated.
A boy with 11 tumors, who was sent home to die, survives after his grandparents’ alternative therapy treatments.
I get sick every time I hear a story of how oncologists have called in the police to force parents to treat their children with chemo and radiation therapy. It really is too bad that there is no one we can call to get rid of such doctors and institutions that support them with fascist fervor. Instead of Ghostbusters we need a group to bust up the field of pediatric oncology. The arrogance of pediatricians will continue to reverberate through our race consciousness as children are killed and families are ruined because of their brainless beliefs and practices.
Special Note: Please note in the story on ABC News that Mike Hyde made his own hemp oil. Rick Simpson, who continues to be a rock of integrity about the use of hemp oil for the cure of cancer, warns people to make it themselves because the quality of purchased oil is highly questionable. Simpson said:
“That’s the reason I tell the public it’s best to produce your own oil at this time, until we have some standards in place. If you produce the oil yourself, at least then you know you have the real thing and to a dying patient, the proper oil can mean the difference between life and death.
“The public must realize that all hemp is not created equal, the medicinal qualities from strain to strain can vary a great deal so the proper strains must be used. Also low-grade strains and clippings may produce a decent treatment for some skin conditions. But if you are trying to treat someone with a serious condition like cancer, low-grade oils just don’t cut it, only the best will do.
“These are trying times for us all, but soon things will settle down and the public will have their medicine. It’s just a matter of time now, for there is no way for the system to stop the truth from spreading. Properly produced hemp oil is the greatest medicine on this earth, and soon hemp will again take its rightful place in mainstream medicinal use.”
