In the book " Epilepsy: Causes, Symptoms and Treatments Published in 1881, Dr. William Richard - Londoner, explained how cannabis was considered the most effective treatment for epilepsy. A chapter describes the story of John - 40 years, an epileptic since 25 years.
"The tremors lasted all day and during sleep and caused vertigo, loss of consciousness and terrible pain, which prevented the patient from dressing alone," the document says.
It all starts with medical treatment ...
John was initially treated with potassium bromide, a substance used as an antiepileptic until the 70 years. And if its use is still allowed in Germany in the treatment of epilepsy, the results obtained are not satisfactory.
"He took three doses of potassium a day and after four months of treatment, the seizures did not go down," said Dr. William Richard.
A plant that will change everything ...
After John started receiving cannabis, the tremors decreased considerably. A plant extract administered to the patient three times a day, was enough to completely remove the tremors.
"It's a wonderful change," said John in his testimony.
For six months, John had not experienced any tremor. After stopping the plant-based treatment, the seizures returned. When he took over cannabis, the crises disappeared again.
Funny coincidence, no? ...
