CBD AND EPILEPSY, A BETTER OPTION?
Here at CBD Thera we are pro-activists for treating epilepsy with CBD oil. CBD has made the news quite a bit in reference to its effects on epilepsy. Stories of cannabis’s abilities to alleviate seizures have been around for about 150 years but recent interest in medical marijuana has increased sharply in the last decade with the help of legalization campaign.
Epilepsy is a neurological disorder that causes unpredictable seizures that are triggered by irregular electrical misfiring among brain cells. The misfiring results in physical convulsions, loss of consciousness, and sometimes severely altered senses. Epilepsy itself may be caused by head injuries, hormonal imbalance, or viruses. But often the cause is unknown.
Many current CBD users switched to the cannabis-based therapy after having disappointing results from expensive medications that often cause unwanted side effects such as: headaches, double vision, slurring of speech, hair loss, liver failure, depression, nausea, weight gain, irritability, sleep disturbances, and impotence.
Traditionally, epilepsy patients are prescribed one or more anticonvulsants, which often need re-adjusting to find the right balance, if such a thing exists.
Nearly 40% of epileptic patients – that’s roughly 400,000 people in the US alone – are are diagnosed with DRE, drug resistant epilepsy. To complicate things further, those with DRE tend to have more epilepsy related disabilities. The yearly expense for epilepsy patients in the US can be over $12 million dollars.
The challenge is, you’re most likely not going to get a recommendation for CBD oil therapy from your physician for your epilepsy. You will have to take control of your health and choose independently to try this successful treatment. If you’re open to taking CBD, you should find health providers who understand CBD.
Mild side effects have been reported such as sleepiness, diarrhea and fatigue, but they generally do not stop people from continuing with their CBD therapy.
It’s your doctor’s job to be mainstream. It’s your job to find the balance that’s best for your health. Just like you’re researching CBD right now, you should equally research your prescriptions. Just because the FDA approves them doesn’t mean they work for everyone. Have you listened to the side effects warnings during tv commercials for advertised meds? There’s a long list of warnings and side effects discovered in testing. CBD oil itself is not an inexpensive remedy, but what you pay for is effectiveness.
