Many people believe that thyroid cancer can be beaten with cannabis oil. Many of these people have had cancer, or presently have cancer, and are using cannabis oil as an alternative therapy. People talk to each other when they have something in common. Cancer patients share their stories and many are now revealing that cannabis oil is helping them to survive cancer. Scientists are looking into this and studies are being done. Usually when someone has thyroid problems and they get cancer of the thyroid, it can be treated rapidly. Doctors use surgery and radiated iodine, amongst other treatments. The fact that thyroid cancer can be beaten using cannabis oil should be analysed and proven.
Cannabis oil definitely improves quality of life for cancer patients, thanks to the two main cannabinoids or chemical compounds extracted from the plant. Cannabidiol (CBD) is a natural anti-inflammatory and pain reliever which also has calming properties, can improve insomnia, lack of appetite, anxiety and stress which cancer patients experience. Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is the psychoactive cannabinoid which also displays incredible healing powers. It can also assist patients with the management of pain in cancer, improving spasticity and bladder complaints in the case of multiple sclerosis and treating seizures.
Cannabis oil is one natural tool used to fight cancer and why not thyroid cancer too? The thyroid is a small endocrine gland in the neck which regulates metabolism and calcium intake. Special cells create thyroid hormones that balance the metabolism but these can become problematic. When you have too few thyroid hormones, you get hypothyroidism – you feel tired and slow, unusually cold, constipation, muscle weakness, unexplained weight gain, depression, pale and dry skin and more. The opposite condition is called hyperthryoidism and the symptoms include unexplained weight loss, rapid or irregular heartbeat, anxiety, irritability, insomnia, trembling hands and fingers and more.
Cancer is a chronic disease when the cells in your body don’t die off when they are old as they should. Cancer cells are abnormal cells which multiply and divide without dying off, causing health issues and even death.
Thyroid cancer symptoms include swelling in the neck, pain on the front of the neck, difficulties swallowing or breathing, persistent cough or change in voice tone. If doctors catch the cancer early, it can be cured. If not, there is a 50% chance of recovery, if found in the late stages. Mostly women get thyroid cancer in their 40s or 50s. Doctors use chemotherapy to treat the cancer, radioactive iodine therapy (to kill cancer cells in the thyroid BUT healthy cells get killed too), hormone therapy and surgery. Unfortunately, these have devastating side effects which can be long term.
Cannabis oil has many healing qualities and does not have any detrimental side effects. CBD and THC treat pain and inflammation, both symptoms of cancer that can be decreased. These cannabinoids also relieve nausea and vomiting associated with cancer and chemotherapy. The oils also assist thyroid cancer patients to swallow and breathe easier. A good CBD / THC blend will help with feelings of extreme fatigue and that cloudy brain feeling. You can also use CBD to sleep better at night. Be aware of the doses you need for cancer and stick to them. Cannabis oil should be taken regularly and incessantly.
Studies also show that cannabinoids can stop cancer cells from replicating by forcing them to commit suicide, as older, healthy cells do all the time. Cannabis cannabinoids interact with the body’s endocannabinoid system and endocannabinoids. The body has CB1 and CB2 cannabinoid receptors and if the CB2 receptors receive the cannabis, this helps with cancer gene therapy. When cannabis cannabinoids cling to the CB2 receptors, it stops ongoing tumour formation and allows the immune system to return to a healthy balance and then fight the cancer tumours. The cannabinoids also stop new blood vessels from forming that take food to tumours.
At Cannabis Network News, we recommend that thyroid cancer patients take cannabis oil to treat both the cancer and the usual medications for the cancer such as chemotherapy. Take CBD oil on your tongue, in your food or in a vape pen. You can also take tinctures and capsules for rapid relief.
