Andy Ashcraft still does not look like a guy with malignant pleural mesothelioma, and especially not one who was diagnosed with the deadly cancer six years ago.
He remains an anomaly, a beacon of hope and a witness of cannabis oil, a positive attitude and a belief in God.
“My oncologist called me a mutant,” Andy said recently from his home in Southern California, where his wife Ruth lives. “I consider myself very lucky.”
As the voice through the community of mesothelioma run, Ashcraft is receiving more and more questions about treatment of cannabis oil, most asking to share his secret not so secret to fight cancer.
Despite a clinical trial immunotherapy has worked well for nearly three years, their effectiveness stopped suddenly and his health rapidly collapsed. Her doctor suggested palliative care and hospice for his last weeks as the tumors grew.
At the insistence of Ruth, however, instead he turned to cannabis oil, derived from the marijuana plant, which caused a miraculous recovery. Andy and Ruth will participate in the Relay of the American Cancer Society for Life on May 14 in Murrieta, California, spreading the word under the banner of Strollin ‘of a cure.
“If we can help anyone to share what I do, we are happy to do it,” he said. “My wife, however, stay healthy knows more than me. I’ll let him tell you.”
Due to the large number of requests Andy and I go to for survival, we wanted to share with some of the things that Andy is doing to help stay healthy. It is our hope to help anyone suffering from this terrible disease.
I will preface this by saying that we can not guarantee that this will work for anyone else. We are not saying it is a cure by any means. We are not experts and have no medical background. We’re just sharing what Andy has been working with the hope that it will help someone else.
should talk to your own doctor first to get your medical opinion before trying any alternative medicine. In addition, this might not be available where you live, and I will warn you, it is not cheap.
Andy has been completely out of chemotherapy since July 2014. He has been living an active and happy life now as any man of 69 years of normal age. We spent a lot of time traveling to games of our grandson, visiting friends and relatives. We exercise every day. We attended his 50th class reunion last October.
If you meet Andy, you never know who was given a grim diagnosis of mesothelioma stage IV in May 2010. The two feel that in order to fight this disease, it is mandatory to keep a positive attitude and faith in God.
We believe that the protocol of cannabis has helped, too.
The basics of obtaining Medical Marijuana
The use of cannabis oil derived from medical marijuana is not legal in all states. Because California legalized medical marijuana in 1996, one of the first things we did was get a medical ID card marijuana (MMIC).
These cards identify the holder by legally be able to possess medical marijuana for a serious medical condition such as cancer.
Before obtaining the MMIC, you should first consult your doctor. diagnosis and doctor’s recommendation that cannabis is the right oil and insurance must be documented before the local public health department issues the MMIC. Costs vary by county, but ours cost $ 50
Once you have the card, then you need to find a dispensary. The office issues its MMIC usually provide the names and locations of several clinics. This is where you should do your homework and ask questions. In my opinion the most important things to do are 😕
How is the oil extracted sell
Andy not ingest cannabis oil extracted using butane or naphtha because those are the dangerous chemicals. He prefers oil extracted with 100 percent grain alcohol or carbon dioxide.
I would like to see the results of extraction.
This should show how the oil and the amounts of cannabinoids extracted: CBD, THC, CBN, CBC, CBL and some others. What we pay more attention to were CDB (compound with medical benefits and no mind-altering capacity) vs. THC (the main ingredient that alters the senses).
always try to get Andy oil with the highest amount of CBD and some THC. Medical research shows CDB helps fight a variety of topics for all types of cancer and other diseases.
If the chosen clinic can answer these questions, you are satisfied with the test results and decide to start using cannabis oil, you are ready for the next steps.
Oil Treatment cannabis Andy
it is important to start slowly.
If tolerated well, then you can increase the dose until you reach the amount suggested to keep tumors at bay. Andy finally reached about 1 gram a day, what was right for him.
The cost of this treatment in our area is $ 1,000 a month. The oil can be placed under the tongue, but Andy says it is not palatable. I use the clear vegetarian tapas that can be purchased at any health food store.
We have a mobile clinic, and our man is knowledgeable, especially when it comes to different ways of ingesting cannabis oil, such as cookies, brownies, candy and other items.
The only drawback of these articles are made with the actual plant, which contains high levels of THC and can get drunk. In addition, there is no way to track how much cannabis is in each element.
We buy some brownies, but usually are just an appetizer for Andy at night when we know that we will not leave the house again that day. I think it helps to sleep. Andy takes mostly honey oil capsules with high CBD. These resemble those of vitamin E capsules transparent light yellow.
Andy has a total of four capsules a day. I give a capsule oil or honey before each meal, and prepare a final vegetarian capsule for him before bedtime.
I hope this answers some questions related to the use of cannabis Andy oil. I feel that information is power, and God knows we need all the power you can muster to fight this disease.
