Relieve your pain and heal your life.
If you are among the 100 million Americans suffering with chronic pain, this may be the book for you. Whether your problem is arthritis, back pain, neuropathy, migraine, or menstrual cramps, medical marijuana has proven to be remarkably effective for relieving the pain of nearly all of our most common chronic pain conditions. Unlike opioids which are killing more than 150 people daily from overdosing, it’s also quite safe. Most patients using cannabis as medicine are able to significantly reduce or eliminate their opioids, anti-inflammatories, anti-anxiety drugs, muscle relaxants, and sleep meds.
In CANNABIS FOR CHRONIC PAIN, Dr. Rav Ivker, a trusted family physician who has worked with more than 7500 patients using medical marijuana to relieve their suffering, presents the first authoritative and comprehensive guide for treating chronic pain with medical marijuana. He serves as your expert guide to answer questions, dispel misconceptions, and prescribe the specific cannabis and holistic treatment for your chronic pain condition, so you can finally find relief. The book includes success stories from real-life patients, along with the author’s story of healing himself from a severe case of shingles.
With medical marijuana currently legal in 29 states, there is a compelling need for guidance in the appropriate use of this remarkable herb. Chronic pain is by far the most frequent medicinal use of cannabis, and Cannabis for Chronic Pain provides medical marijuana recommendations for fast-acting pain relief (with and without getting high), as well as dietary suggestions and supplements for twenty of America’s most common chronic physical and emotional pain conditions.
Cannabis is a powerful holistic healing herb, impacting body, mind, and spirit. Dr. Rav guides readers in utilizing the psychoactive effect to help identify the emotional and spiritual factors contributing to their pain. This approach has proven to be highly successful for providing long-term pain relief, significantly reducing and eliminating opioids, addressing the causes of dis-ease, and helping patients heal their lives.
