Happiness & Healing Oneself | Your Choice of Mind & Heart

It’s another one of those times when I’ve come across a subject that I feel is of such import that I post it on both blogs simultaneously.

In the last days I read and viewed this information, which is one small extract of many peoples experiences of either making themselves ill or healing themselves, through their own attitude and what they anticipate. If you think that someone is going to react in a certain way or something is going to happen in the way that you expect, good or bad, typically, because this is the window you’re looking through and the way that you approach the situation, it more than likely will.

Here is the youtube video of Lissa Rankin, MD’s TED talk – a presentation of the results of her research. YES, she researched and found her proof. Rankin addressed in her TED talk a group of health care professionals talking about how much their caring intention influences the health and healing of their patients.

I’ve written plenty of times about the subject of happiness.

https://digesthis.wordpress.com/2014/12/13/marijuana-out-of-the-closet-the-cannabis-cure-cbd-tincture/ The Cannabis Cure, by Charlie Bayliss and Amelia Powers “The Powers of the Mind” regarding her ability to overcome a brain tumor not with chemotherapy (which hadn’t been working) but through the decision to employ optimism, dancing and CBD tinctures – extracted from marijuana.

There may be all sorts of incidences that occur throughout the day which may trigger a stress response. Regardless of the source of the stress, our body releases stress hormones such as cortisol and epinephrine. The body responds to stress by producing hormones that are ingrained into the ‘fight or flight’ response which is genetically built-in, from the times when humans actually did have to be prepared to promptly face or flee a threat such as a wild animal or severe weather condition. Yet, it is us who decide how to respond emotionally to interpret a situation as something inducing stress; a perception of monetary, marital, social problems, work conflicts, situational discomforts or environmental hazards etc. Our body doesn’t distinguish between the source of our stress, it simply responds to our emotional response by chemically producing hormones to interpret our emotional reaction.

You basically do have a choice in how you respond to circumstances.

The point is to actively pursue experiences that lead to feeling happier and to alleviate the stress. Making a conscious choice to allow oneself to relax, enjoy one’s environment, to enjoy simple things, engage in activities like meditation and other practices that facilitate a deeper conscious breathing, physical exercise, participating in experiences that engage with nature, eating healthy foods, spending time in the company of positive people and interacting with all sorts of animals; therapy dogs specifically elicit happy hormones because of their unconditionally loving nature. Make a point of acknowledging with gratitude what you appreciate, attune to all of the different wonderful life forms (animals and plants in our world) that are here around you, and recognize that by participating in creative activities and doing tasks that involve achieving little goals, all lead to developing more insights and a sense of accomplishment. All of these different activities that are coming through the heart, instead of through the head, will lead to the release of hormones such as dopamine, oxytocin and serotonin, which the body produces in association with feelings of happiness and contentment and a sense of well-being. Laugh! Go out and play!

Yes, it’s a choice.

The Powers of The Mind video by Charlie Bayliss & Amelia Powers

I first viewed this youtube video a year ago, 2013, while living in Germany. “Cannabis Cures Brain Cancer: The Powers of the Mind” It was published on Oct 15, 2013.

CBD does not kill cancer cells it loves them into a healthy state

 

 

It’s about the successful cancer treatment of a grade 3 brain tumor, after radiation and chemotherapy failed. The cure is through an ingredient in cannabis, called cannabidiol (CBD). It is one of at least 85 active cannabinoids identified in cannabis. It is taken orally, administered as a liquid CBD tincture.

I was enthralled; captivated by the music and how well the video is crafted. I was convinced by its insights. I told myself I must communicate this. Yet, it remained on the back burner, until recently. I was informed of an acquaintance’s debilitating illness, a cancer. His eloquent personal blog informing people about what he was going through lead me adroitly to two resolves;

1. to not put off ANYthing 2. to put this blog out there, because it may save lives!

Perhaps I put it off because it’s still considered illegal in many states in the USA. Puts a bit of a damper on openly communicating about it. Its drug classification is elucidated here. I’m not interested so much in the legality, but in its proven effectiveness in eradicating illnesses as well as their debilitating symptoms…so that it allows people to adapt and live and in fact, become healthy. Oddly, it is still ranked among far more addictive and potentially lethal drugs.

Cannabis has been on the airwaves and print media across the United States much more recently, because of its decriminalization in several states. This has lead to a slew of documentaries and articles, recognizing its medicinal qualities, specifically calling it ‘medical marijuana‘.

I’ve seen several cable TV specials and read a number of articles focusing on the effectiveness of cannabis in curing or severely reducing the symptoms of a multiplicity of illnesses, from epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, cancer, brain tumors to (PTSD) post traumatic stress disorder. One person who has been more vocal recently is CNN’s chief medical correspondent who is a practicing neurosurgeon, Sanjay Gupta M.D. He touted one point of view, and then after studying it and recognizing unequivocally its benefits, changed his mind. You can read and listen to his new point of view here. “Why I Changed My Mind On Weed” By Dr. Sanjay Gupta, CNN Chief Medical Correspondent.

There’s a plethora of information about its curative properties.

This article explains more. Cannabidiol (CBD): Fighting Inflammation & Aggressive Forms of Cancer

Cannabis contains at least 60 known chemicals called cannabinoids, which activate naturally occurring cannabinoid receptors in your body. Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is the main component responsible for the psychoactive effects, or high cannabis is known for. Cannabidiol (CBD) is the second most abundant cannabinoid in cannabis. Research done by G.W. Pharmaceuticals suggests that CBD could be used for treating symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis and other autoimmune diseases, diabetes, nausea, bowel disorders, and many other hard-to-control side effects. According to an article from Projectcbd.com, CBD has even demonstrated neuroprotective effects, and its anti-cancer potential is currently being explored.

There are at least two active chemicals in marijuana that researchers think have medicinal application. Those are cannabidiol (CBD) — which seems to impact the brain without a high— and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) — which has pain relieving properties.

Arthritis Today talks about treatment with medical marijuana.

Josh Stanley explains in a TED talk the amazing science that has essentially cured one 6 year old little girl named Charlotte, who suffered from pediatric epilepsy which caused 400 seizures a week. She and her family consider it a lifesaver.

This article talks about the 23 Health Benefits of Marijuana. Now wait, I have to go smoke some tobacco sprinkled with marijuana, to keep my stamina up to read and list the 23 benefits and to finish writing and editing this blog.

1. It can be used to treat Glaucoma.
2. It may help reverse the carcinogenic effects of tobacco and improve lung health.
3. It can help control epileptic seizures.
4. It decreases the symptoms of a severe seizure disorder known as Dravet’s Syndrome.
5. A chemical found in marijuana stops cancer from spreading.
6. It may decrease anxiety.
7. THC slows the progression of Alzheimer’s disease.
8. The drug eases the pain of multiple sclerosis.
9. Other types of muscle spasms could be helped too.
10. Lessens side effects & increases treatment effectiveness:Hepatitis C.
11. Marijuana treats inflammatory bowel diseases.
12. It relieves arthritis discomfort.
13. It keeps you skinny and helps your metabolism.
14. It improves the symptoms of Lupus, an autoimmune disorder.
15. Marijuana spurs creativity in the brain.
16. Marijuana might be able to eliminate Crohn’s diseases.
17. Pot soothes tremors for people with Parkinson’s disease.
18. Marijuana helps veterans suffering from PTSD.
19. Marijuana protects the brain after a stroke.
20. It might protect the brain from concussions and trauma.
21. It can help eliminate nightmares.
22. Weed reduces pain and nausea from chemo, and stimulates appetite
23. Marijuana can help people trying to cut back on drinking.

Speaking of stamina, this blogger talks about Marijuana as a Performance Enhancer. “Medical marijuana’s benefits for alleviating pain, decreasing nausea, and improving mood are well known. So it’s not hard to see why those same qualities would appeal to endurance athletes; who must cope with high levels of pain, stress and boredom during grueling hours-long events.” He said it, and I concur.
