Cancer, Children and Cannabis

Dr. Mark Allan Sircus, Ac., OMD, DM (P), April 4, 2012

There has been a lot happening in the world and in my work as of late so I would like to give an update. First of all, for those of you who enjoy following me closely, my daily communications continue on Facebook.

I have not been publishing as many newsletters as usual and one reason is that I have been into my cancer writings. This week The Changing Landscape of Cancer goes into final production and it will serve as a primer for a suite of five books that cover the depth and breadth of my work in oncology.

I am presently working on Breast & Prostate Cancer, which will cover all sexual organ cancers as well as the soft underbelly of cancer in general—the emotional, mental, spiritual and sexual stresses and trauma people go through. For those anxious to read my work in this area, see my Soft Medicine book. It holds much of the material that will see the light of day in this new cancer book.

Then I will come out quickly with a second edition of my Winning the War on Cancer book, which will be more focused and cover everything that my Sodium Bicarbonate, Rich Man’s Poor Man’s Cancer Treatment book, my Medical Marijuana book and these other books do not cover. With five books covering the subject of cancer I will have a totally comprehensive medical approach to the treatment of cancer.

In terms of medical marijuana, the question is being asked, “What more evidence does the U.S. government need to understand that the current approach to fighting the Mexican drug cartels is failing? All the evidence suggests that the efforts to crush Mexico’s violent drug cartels have failed. Why won’t the White House listen?” They don’t listen because they are cruel and psychopathic beings who have sold their souls to the system and everything they receive from it.

It is clear beyond doubt that medical marijuana should be prescribed in large oral dosages (hemp oil or raw cannabis) to everyone with cancer (for those in search of complete cures) and that many of the symptoms and even the stress of this disease can be addressed by smoking, which, yes, means getting high.

Marijuana is the best medicine for 3-year-old Cash Hyde of Missoula, Montana. The boy’s parents defied doctor’s orders—and Montana law—to get their hands on the medicinal treatment their son needed after he was diagnosed with recurring brain tumors at 22 months old. “I’ve had law enforcement threatening to kick my door down, but I would have done anything to keep Cashy alive,” Mike Hyde, who said he has long been a proponent of the drug, told ABCNews.com.

Missoula Police Sgt. Travis Welsh said, “Obviously, this man’s intentions are for his child.” The Hydes and the doctors decided to wean the toddler off a cocktail of drugs that included methadone, ketamine and morphine. Their son went through 30 rounds of radiation without one bout of nausea or any pain medication other than medical marijuana, according to his father.

Dr. Allison Dering-Anderson, clinical assistant professor in the college of pharmacy at University of Nebraska does not condone breaking the law even if it’s to save a child’s life from cancer. “It’s not acceptable to break the law,” said Dering-Anderson. “I’m sorry for this child and for this family and for all they’ve gone through, but… our licenses depend upon upholding the law.”

Dering-Anderson said she has deep concerns about children taking medication (medical marijuana) that is not specified by a doctor and without clear oversight of their care. From my perspective doctors are forced to be more interested in their licenses and following the lockstep of a type of medicine that hurts more people than it helps. I am concerned for people who put blind trust in these card-carrying doctors who refuse to look beyond what is mandated by the AMA and the FDA. Oncologists are cornered and have no choice but to put the law ahead of the wellbeing of their patients. It is a sad state of affairs when doctors are forced to abuse their patients because of laws and governmental medical rules that dictate which treatments are legal and which are not. Today, to stand behind the law is to become alien to the truth about how to best care for patients and address their needs. We have cruel laws administered by cruel people and aggressive institutions that have no right to accept responsibility for the health and wellbeing of any human being.

Raw Michelle published about other cases where medical marijuana is the right choice for medical treatment.

At 16, Kristen Peskuski was suffering from joint inflammation and an array of autoimmune conditions which made her organs and other tissues swell, including interstitial cystitis and lupus. She was prescribed over 40 different anti-inflammatory, antibiotic and painkilling medications to combat the symptoms. Still struggling to bring the symptoms under control, Kristen developed steroid toxicity. She was told that the most she could hope for was reduced discomfort, and with luck, she might make it to her 30th birthday. Seeking alternative treatments, she began juicing raw cannabis leaves every day, and within two months, Kristen's back pain had been eliminated, and she had stopped using any other painkillers.

At two years old, she was diagnosed with terminal brain tumours. Her mother was told that with treatment, Amber had a 10 percentchance of survival. After surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy, the tumours were still spreading. Her parents were advised to take their child home, make her comfortable, and prepare for the inevitable. A month later, her parents reported a startling change. The tumours had decreased in size and number. The family had been juicing cannabis leaves and feeding their baby a few ounces of the juice each day.
