For the past 7 1/2 years (since the fall of 2008) I have had recurrent bouts of nausea and vomiting to the point where I had to go to the emergency room on many occasions. I have seen so many doctors and specialists, had so many tests and investigations done, and been tried on so many medications and supplements that I can't even remember them all. I even had my gallbladder removed, to no avail. I also tried almost every home remedy that anyone suggested. The only things that came out of all of those tests were the fact that my stomach empties slowly, I have severe acid reflux, a weak esophagus, a hiatial hernia and IBS. I have completely changed my diet to where I am eating low-fat, low-fiber and low-acid. This has seemed to help somewhat, but I was still getting the nausea, vomiting, stomach pain and cramps more often than I would like.
In December 2015, I ran into a lady who was selling medical marijuana (cannabis sativa seed oil) in the form of gel caps. I had considered marijuana several times over the years but did not want to smoke anything so when presented with the option of taking it in capsule form, I was more than willing to try (after all, I had tried everything else!). It worked slowly for me, I was just noticing little things at first, like my mind was a little clearer and my stomach seemed to bother me a little less. I was actually feeling a little disappointed because I was not noticing results as quickly as other people were. I had to remind myself, though, that everyone is different and everyone's problems are different and some things take longer to heal.
A big turning point came for me when a friend of mine reminded me, that you are never supposed to take any supplements within 2 hours of prescription medications. I had totally forgotten this and was taking everything at the same time. When you do this, they interfere with each other and neither of them work as good as they should! I also started taking my mm capsules all together (which you are supposed to start doing after the first week!). I had already increased to 5 capsules, so I was taking 3 in the morning and 2 in the evening. This seemed to be the perfect balance for me and I started to notice significant improvement. My stomach doesn't hurt nearly as much or as often as it used to, I am eating better, hardly ever get nauseas and I have not vomited in 3 months!!! I still have a long way to go but I am so happy and so grateful for the path of healing that I am on now and it is all because of the medical marijuana capsules!
