I never knew there was an alternative to western medicine.
I honestly hadn’t heard the term western medicine until I was in my fifties.
Western medicine refers to the chemically created drugs that are prescribed by doctors. My sister joined a group of people who were into natural healing. I asked her what natural healing was? She told me that nothing goes into her body that isn’t grown or a natural part of the earth. This made a lot of sense to me. I had seen how she had changed in the last couple years. Her entire outlook on life had become more positive since she had changed her doctor. She told me she had been using recreational marijuana ever since it had been legalized in our state. Prior to recreational marijuana, she had used CBD products. There was a marijuana dispensary not two blocks from my home, and I decided to go in and look around. I was now using fifteen different drugs throughout the day, just to maintain, and I was tired of it. I often said that if I could throw them all away and start over, I would feel better. The budtender told me not to do that, but it wouldn’t hurt if I tried CBD for some of my pain, and talked to a reputable pain management doctor. CBD products helped immensely, but I still wanted to get rid of all the nerve blockers I was on. The pain doctor weaned me off my drugs, and I was now only using CBD products and purchasing them at the cannabis dispensary. I’m glad I talked to my sister and went into the cannabis dispensary.
