Anna suffers from Rheumatoid arthritis. Rheumatoid is an autoimmune disease where the body’s immune system attacks its own tissue, mostly in the joints, creating inflammation and chronic pain. For Anna, a simple task such as standing upright was agonising while walking was only possible hunched over, even more so than her elderly Father. Anna was prescribed codeine and tramadol to help with her arthritis but it did little more than numb and mask pain while the swelling was still very much present. Side effects for both of these drugs can also make someone feel spaced out and Anna often felt like she was in la-la land. A complete loss in enjoyment for life gave Anna all the more reason to look for alternative treatment…
Two months was all it took for Anna to completely come off her old painkillers and let the natural something of Medicinal Cannabis work its wonders. Initial hesitance about taking cannabis has now been quashed and replaced with elation! Anna’s back in the kitchen, outside exercising, and full of confidence having lost 10kgs in the process! As if that wasn’t enough, she can now sleep through the night and wake up energised, something she hasn’t done in five years! Before Medicinal Cannabis, Anna had accepted that prescribed pharmaceuticals were the only thing on offer but there’s a new natural treatment around. Medicinal Cannabis; just what the Doctor ordered!
