The first authoritative and comprehensive guide for treating chronic pain with medical marijuana from a holistic family physician who has treated more than 6,000 chronic pain patients with cannabis.
While the number of patients using medical marijuana increases every year, misconceptions about cannabis and whether it's harmful or dangerous still exist. In Cannabis for Chronic Pain, Dr. Rav explains the potential of marijuana's capacity for healing anyone afflicted with chronic pain. Medical marijuana is a safe, nonaddictive alternative to dangerous opiate pain pills.
Along with sharing his own story of using medical marijuana to heal from a severe case of shingles, Dr. Rav guides you through the cannabis and holistic treatment for your specific chronic pain condition. If you are suffering from arthritis, back pain, migraines, fibromyalgia, menstrual cramps, IBS, Crohn's disease, anxiety, depression, or pain from cancer or its treatment, this may be the book for you.
Dr. Rav offers step-by-step instruction on the benefits and appropriate use of medical marijuana. And he dispels many of the misconceptions. Did you know that you don't have to smoke or eat cannabis for it to be effective? There are now patches and drops. We are entering a new age of acceptance, and, perhaps most importantly, as Dr. Rav highlights, it is now possible to create a distinct cannabis prescription for different types of chronic pain. Find what works for you, and finally get the relief you need.
Cannabis for Chronic Pain is the new definitive guide for anyone who suffers from chronic pain.
