A study just recently revealed by the American Epilepsy Society (AES) has discovered a cannabis derivative to be efficient in combating epileptic seizures, with the substance exhibiting severe efficacy in dealing with the condition within kids.
The American Epilepsy Society's findings
The study– entitled “Effectiveness and Safety of Epidiolex (Cannabidiol) in Children and Young Adults With Treatment-Resistant Epilepsy”– was revealed at the AES's 70th annual meeting last month.
The study discovered that cannabidiol (CBD) worked in minimizing both the frequency and severity of seizures in both kids and adults. It began in Philadelphia in 2014 with children from epilepsy treatment centers nationwide.
Particularly, clients who received the treatment were discovered to have actually displayed an average decrease in seizures of 45.1 percent.
The research study was unequivocal in its findings.
These findings arise from an unrestrained research study and supports the animal studies and previous reports revealing that CBD might be a promising treatment for treatment-resistant epilepsies and it is usually well-tolerated in doses up to 25mg/kg/day.
According to Dr. Orrin Devinsky, a lead author of the research study and neurologist at the New york city University Langone Medical Center, the findings were extremely appealing.
In the subsequent periods, which are very encouraging, 9 percent of all clients and 13 percent of those with Dravet Syndrome epilepsy were seizure-free.
Many of those study participants had actually never ever been seizure-free in the past.
The leaders of the study have actually been outspoken about its findings, stressing that it is among the bigger body of research study to suggest that marijuana and its derivatives work in combating epileptic seizures.
Elizabeth A. Thiele, M.D., Ph.D.– a lead author of the research study– stated in an AES press release that the research study's findings could offer hope to numerous epilepsy clients,
For many children with treatment-resistant Dravet syndrom, Lennox-Gastaut syndrome and other epilepsies, CBD appears to be a reliable– often very reliable– treatment that is safe and well-tolerated overall.
Thiele was quick to point out, nevertheless, that clients and observers should work to manage their expectations,
It is not a silver bullet, but there are kids who take advantage of this more than they have from other treatments.
Regardless of the promise revealed by the effectiveness of marijuana in treating epilepsy, doctors have actually however warned against patients– and particularly clients' moms and dads– trying to procure and prescribe the compound by themselves.
This phenomenon is challenging, states Nicole Hansen, the mother of a seven-year-old young boy with epilepsy, because an absence of doctor input might lead to inaccurate doses for the patient.
You need to ensure the business can replicate the same item over and over. A small modification in the ratio of THC to cannabidiol can trigger a child's seizures to increase or come back.
Some parents, however, have no option: A lot of those with children whose epileptic conditions have actually been found to be treatable with CBD oil live in states in which the compound is prohibited, requiring them to acquire the medicine through back channels.
As time marches forward acceptance of cannabis-based treatment is growing, so those who have conditions related to epileptic seizures have sincere grounds for optimism that safe effective treatments will someday soon be readily available.
Now, fast forward 8 or so years after the surgery. I'm still having pain after this surgery that was supposed to "help" me. I've ended up trying steroid injects to attempt to lessen or eliminate the pain temporarily, but that didn't help me at all. I wake up with pain, go to sleep with pain, basically it would consume my day and even distract me at times while at work. The most recent brain & spinal doctor I visited, told me the scans we've done are showing NO indication of inflammation at all, so he's unable to do anything else for me.
Getting told there isn't anything else someone can do to help you, REALLY sucks. Especially when this is their profession, they went to school to fix these things right? Well sometimes there just isn't a solution.
This news is what pushed me into looking into some "natural" relief remedies. I started looking more into hemp CBD oil, and was pretty amazed at what I had read about it..there was no high like cannabis gives you, due to the low THC content.
It's been helping children all over the world with seizures, and a wide array of ailments! I knew I had to try this stuff myself, so naturally like anyone these days..the fastest way to order it was online. So I googled hemp CBD oil and found all these different companies, and spent hours doing more research. Then a friend of mine suggested hempworx, as he is a current customer...so I ordered my first bottle. A few weeks in to using it, my pain is completely gone. Now I just need to take around a 1/4th of a dropper once I'm home from work, to keep my night, pain free! Another awesome thing coming out of this, is it has been helping me with my sleep issues and headaches as well!
Something that has always been in my mind is if I end up taking pain meds/opiods for the pain, I'll become addicted. Using this oil has helped me overcome that fear, because it's a natural product and you can't get addicted! Besides an addiction for the relief it provides.
I'm so grateful this "Miracle" was shared with me, and I believe it's something that needs to be shared with everyone else, as it can do so much good!
