Cancer Survivor Says CBD Oil ‘Saved Her Life’ After Doctors Said She Had 6 Months To Live

(Natural News) Four years ago, this cancer survivor was told she had “six to 18 months” to live. Today, she is advocating for the decriminalization of the life-saving herb
No one wants to be told they have cancer — let alone an inoperable brain tumor, yet this is the exact reality Lynn Cameron was faced with in 2013. In December of that year, doctors informed the 48-year-old that she had just “six to 18 months” to live. You can imagine her devastation.
Determined to live, Cameron underwent several sessions of chemotherapy along with radiotherapy.
“I took a seizure on November 30, 2013, prior to which I had been quite well. I had a scan on December 10 and it showed a mass, and I was taken straight into Southern General at that point,” explained Cameron. “I was operated on on December 16, and on December 27 I was told that I had stage 4 terminal brain cancer. So I underwent the chemotherapy and radiotherapy combined, but was told even then I would live six to 18 months at best.”
Scared by the diagnosis, she also began supplementing with cannabis oil (CBD) — a therapy that is presently illegal in the UK. “A good friend suggested cannabis, but I was too scared because it’s illegal. I also found it hard to believe that it would cure brain cancer so advanced,” she said. “But as the scans were showing there was no change to the mass, I eventually thought, ‘I’m going to break the mold here and try that’.”
Nearly four years after her diagnosis, Lynn is still alive and says cannabis oil is the reason. She is now advocating “for the reform of the current prohibitive laws around the use of cannabis for medication.”

Over the past four years, the cancer patient has educated herself on a wide range of natural therapies to combat the affliction. She said, “I researched more and more into natural ‘cancer killers’ and decided to follow an alkaline diet and cut out processed foods altogether. I also cut out sugar completely. I started taking cannabis oil under my tongue, as it gets straight into the blood stream that way.”

I started taking cannabis oil under my tongue, as it gets straight into the blood stream that way.”
Reportedly, every scan Cameron received showed an improvement. “I had been told that chemotherapy and radiotherapy doesn’t make much difference, so I knew it must be the cannabis doing it. By the sixth MRI, the cancer had gone,” she said.
After finally receiving the all-clear, Lynn challenged the doctors about the potential benefits (or adverse reactions) of supplementing with cannabis oil. “The doctors treating me didn’t know about the cannabis oil until I got the results,” she said. “I challenged them on it, but they dismissed it. They weren’t taught about cannabis at medical school – more for a political reason than medical I believe.”
“They told me, ‘eat whatever you like, take all the vitamins you want, it won’t work’. But these were the people who told me my cancer was incurable, and it was gone,” she exclaimed. “The British Medical Journal hasn’t properly investigated cannabis. The irony was they were giving me morphine and codeine in the wards. Prior to becoming ill, I had never taken a pill before in my life.”

Though chemotherapy has been proven to be more beneficial when partnered with the supplementation of cannabis oil, it is possible the extract from the marijuana plant is what propelled Cameron’s healing process the most. Until more research is conducted, this cannot be confirmed.
Said the cancer survivor: “It was up to me what treatment I took, and I’m glad I researched it.”

Cannabis oil (CBD) CURES 12-year-old girl of life-threatening seizures
by: Amy Goodrich
Thursday, June 08, 2017
(Natural News) Cannabis oil (CBD) has saved a 12-year-old girl from having life-threatening seizures caused by a rare form of epilepsy. Earlier this year, Annalise Lujan was competing in a Tucson gymnastics competition when she started vomiting and lost all feeling in her legs.
“By her fourth event, she just couldn’t move. She couldn’t walk. She just was exhausted, tired, not feeling well,” Maryann Estrada-Lujan, Annalise’s mother told KVOA.
When her parents took her to the Banner University Medical Center (UMC) in Tucson, Annalise was diagnosed with a stomach bug and sent home. The next night, however, she had her first seizure. Concerned about the health of their daughter, Annalise’s parents took her back to the UMC. Again, she was sent home without further treatment. The next morning her condition deteriorated quickly, with the girl being plagued by more seizures.
As her parents rushed her to the hospital, the 12-year-old fell into a crippling seizure. According to her mom, she was put on life support and was put into an induced coma to save her brain from damage. Two and a half weeks later she was airlifted to Phoenix Children’s Hospital, where doctors diagnosed her with an extremely rare epilepsy syndrome called Febrile Infection-Related Epilepsy Syndrome (FIRES).
As noted by Annalise’s dad, only one in a million children will get this syndrome. Experts believe that this little-understood condition occurs after an ordinary cold or stomach virus spreads to the brain or autoimmune system.
It usually starts two weeks after a child has had a mild fever. FIRES then quickly gets worse until patients have seizures continuously, with some children having up to 100 seizures a day. Since these constant seizures can lead to brain injury and death, doctors had to put her into an induced coma.
Annalise came out of the coma after less than 48-hours of CBD treatment
To bring her back to the living, doctors had to find a way to control the seizures. Unfortunately, regular anti-epilepsy drugs don’t work on this extremely rare condition. This prompted Annelise’s mother to research other, alternative ways to save her daughter’s life.
During her search, she stumbled on a cannabis-derived drug, called cannabidiol or CBD oil. Unlike Rick Simpson’s hemp oil, which is known for its cancer-fighting properties, CBD oil has very low levels of THC, which is the substance that creates the cannabis high.
With the substance not being approved at that time and no other route to take, Annalise’s doctors had to rush CBD’s approval through the FDA and DEA. Currently, cannabis for both medical and recreational use is legal in Colorado, Washington, Alaska, Oregon, Nevada, California, Maine, and Massachusetts.
Less than 48 hours after her first CBD oil treatment, the 12-year-old was cured of the constant seizures and opened her eyes.
“She opened her eyes, and she was scared. She was afraid. She cried. And, I whispered to her that she was very strong, she’s beautiful, and she’s strong, and she needed to keep breathing, and she did,” Maryann said.
Although Annalise remains in the hospital for further recovery and to regain the cognitive functions she had before, cannabidiol oil has saved this little girl’s life.
The Daily Mail Online reported on a groundbreaking study where scientists at New York University and Great Ormond Street Children’s Hospital discovered that CBD could reduce convulsive seizures by nearly 50 percent in children under 18 with the Dravet syndrome. Another rare and severe form of epilepsy.
While experts don’t want to call it a cure, because patients must keep taking it daily to prevent seizures, CBD oil offers hope for nearly three million Americans who suffer from epilepsy. For a third of these people, standard epilepsy drugs do not work to control their symptoms. They may even do more harm than good.
Though there is still a lot of controversy surrounding the medical use of marijuana, more people are discovering its amazing healing effects.  Annalise’s family has started a GoFundMe page to raise awareness about the rare condition and the use of CBD oil.
