    Surviving ALS with Cannabis, Chapter 3 - with Dr. Melamede



    We flash foward to 2006 to learn from Robert Melamede, PhD, Biology Professor at the University of Colorado, exactly what marijuana does for ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease) and other degenerative nerve diseases, like Multiple Sclerosis, Alzheimer's and Parkinson's.
    Dr. Melamede describes the unique role of the body's own Endo-Cannabinoid system as a "homeostatic regulator" keeping numerous body systems in balance - including the immune, digestive, reproductive, cardio-vascular and neuromuscular systems.
    Dr. Melamede sees the plant-based Cannabinoids in marijuana as a suppliment - to help the Endo-Cannabinoid system achive balance during biological,bio-chemical or other stresses,
    "The use of Cannabis has a profound effect in helping to stop nerve degeneration and helping to restore functional nerves".
    He also recommends Hemp Oil, rich in Omega 3 & 6 EFAs (Essential Fatty Acids), to give the body the tools it needs to achive health.
    Then, back to May of 2000 (14 years with ALS), at home in Parrish, Florida, Cathy Jordan demonstrates how Cannabis helps her to have a great quality of life, while she and her family enjoy her heated pool.
