A few weeks ago I had a call from a delightful pediatrician who had her first painful encounter with a "scientific skeptic." As she was doing a talk on integrative approaches to addressing ADHD, he stood up and called her a quack. Later in the day, this physician called the administration at the clinic where she works and lambasted them for allowing her to practice nonscientific medicine. Her crime: talking about meditation, martial arts, cutting back on processed and sugary foods. I listened as she told of feeling humiliated and shamed. I checked back with her and she is feeling centered again, I could hear the strength in her voice. With all that is going in the world, with all the people who are sick and suffering, with the current state of health care in this country - it is hard for me to comprehend why someone would do this to a physician who is simply trying to help children with more than drugs. The truth is that medicine is much art as science. I find the words of Benjamin Rush to be very prescient. I want the freedom to decide who I want to help me along my journey of healing and discovery. Physician, priest, shaman..... my choice.

Facebook refused to let me change this educational, nonprofit page name to “Cannabis Helps Dementia” so I might start a new page. So frustrating. 🧠🌱💖#cannabishelpsdementia

This study is a very small sample. But I'm grateful for it.

At www.edcan.tv you can see doctors speaking on their use of 1:1 CBD:THC cannabis medicine in assisted living facilities in Northern CA. #Alzheimers #FamilyCaregiver #Care

November is Alzheimer's and Family Caregiver Awareness month - among other things - with no end in sight, we must be open to new ideas, to look at things that have been arbitrarily put on a "forbidden list". Many of you know that cannabis eased our family journey through dementia. Psilocybin is proven to re-grow neuronal connections. But most ppl aren't open to trying such taboo things because they believe their government when it said they are bad...much to all of our detriment. I'm glad that TIME published this families story. It's not about cannabis, but it expresses the great need for a complete system overhaul to address the coming tsunami.

[FTA] "...As the costs of care skyrocket and states struggle to meet Medicaid budgets, Alzheimer’s and dementia patients like my dad may be released—like other “psychiatric” patients—on to the streets if their families can’t support them. And unless they get arrested and put into jail, they may be doomed to homelessness in their senescence. This spectacle, I imagine, is what my father would have wryly dubbed the “zombie apocalypse”: the living dead wandering America’s streets as their brains are slowly eaten. If nothing is done to overhaul the system, I fear that my father’s fate will be shared by millions, without the care and protection I was able to provide..."
