Help with sleep

Will Marijuana help to make you sleep? Well first, if you have to go to a doctor to ask theRead More question you are not doing it right. Go to the internet and get to the source. > sleep marijuana < into google search. Yes. Marijuana (Cannabis) will make you sleep if you have one of the indicas. You only need to ask the budtender at the local dispensary (verify it). Then, once you gather up the truth, then contact the doctor for the prescription/recommendation. If the doctor refuses, change doctors. That simple. tradesmart Net

If someone, such as a doctor tells you different than what you hear about Cannabis, ask for theRead More "source basis" account. That simply means that if the doctor doesn't have a ready source for you, then what is his basis for making the statement. Most doctors (still) do not want to talk about Cannabis. They say there needs to be more research. They refuse to accept the current research for the last several thousand years (and recent research). What they are saying is, ' I'm to lazy to educate myself, I need the FDA and Big Pharma to do it for me'. When your doctor write a memo on a pad laying on his desk, the name on that pad is who is paying him to support their activities, such as Eli Lilly. The doctor is asked to write memo for patients on that pad. Bottom line, he gets paid to advertise for the drug company of his choice. My former sister-in-law (has an MD) was getting at least $3K per month from Eli Lilly to push their drugs. She was a walking advertisement for Eli Lilly. She didn't pay tax on this money either. So, about $36K yr tax free. Eli writes it off as advertising or incurred during a "grant r&d program".

This is great progress! We need to take it a step further and actively recommend these additionalRead More tests (similar to the way that mammograms are recommended) for women who are in that category. I was told I had dense breasts, but I had no idea what the implications would be.

Hi Birgit, Luckily there are new screening technologies that we can offer to women and helpRead More individualize their care. Nurse Barb

You are so right! You know your own body better than anyone and when there's something that's notRead More right, you have to trust your instincts and keep pushing until you get the answers you need. Many times, people have unusual symptoms that still need to be investigated. Thanks for your comment.

Is there an age when women are more likely to get heart disease?

Thought this was interesting...one woman whose doctor told her she was fine but she went to theRead More hospital anyway...and another who is a nurse who points out that you don't know you have heart disease until you have heart disease! http://www.freep.com/article/20130203/COL26/302030069/Kristen-Jordan-Shamus-Beaumont-support-group-encourages-heart-disease-patients-share-their-experiences-fears
