Study: Neurologist uses cannabis to stop or reduce seizures in 261 epileptic kids
Researchers are burning the midnight oil to discover the many wonderful medicinal properties of the cannabis plant – a rich source of important chemical compounds called cannabinoids which are linked to the healthy function of virtually every organ and system in the human body. In a clinical study recently presented to members of the American Epilepsy Society, Dr. Orrin Devinski, Professor of Neurology, Neurosurgery, and Psychiatry at New York University School of Medicine, was able to demonstrate how one powerful cannabinoid known as CBD (short for cannabidiol) was able to significantly reduce or halt seizures and convulsions more than two hundred epileptic children.
“The study involved some 313 epilepsy victims, all children, who were given a medically purified form of the CBD cannabinoid and monitored over a 90-day period. Of the 261 children who remained in the study, virtually all had a response that was astounding: a 50% reduction in seizures or convulsions. Furthermore, 10% of the children became seizure-free during the treatment period,” says Dr. Cass Ingram, author of the book The Cannabis Cure.
Dr. Ingram, an expert in the medicinal properties of cannabis and other plants, says the historical evidence supporting the use of cannabinoid-rich herbs such as cannabis, holy basil, wild sage, wild rosemary, and wild oregano to treat epilepsy and nervous disorders is vast.
“A wide range of infectious agents can be involved in the causation of seizure syndromes, including viruses, molds, fungi, worms, protozoa, and other parasites, and all are capable of invading brain tissue where they lay eggs or create cysts which place pressure on brain centers, leading to seizures,” says Dr. Ingram. “The cannabinoid rich-plants and their oils are especially suited to attack these hidden invaders and quickly inactivate them.”
In terms of pure antiseptic properties, Dr. Ingram says wild oregano oil has been documented as the most potent natural germ and parasite killer known.
“It is particularly effective against viruses, bacteria, molds, and yeasts,” says Dr. Ingram. “As published in the scientific literature, oregano’s main action is against protozoans: amoebas, blastocysts, cryptosporidium, the malarial parasite, and giardia. It is also an ideal agent for brain infections of any type, as many of its components penetrate the blood-brain barrier.” Is there any evidence that wild oregano by itself is a remedy for seizures?
“Historically, it was used precisely for precisely that purpose,” says Dr. Ingram. “It was the ancient Greeks who used it successfully for treating seizure syndromes, but they also used it as a cure for other head-related syndromes such as migraines. In an animal study published in Epilepsy Research and Treatment, researchers found that the essential oil of wild oregano, rich in the active ingredient carvacrol, prevented seizures significantly. So did other essential oils, including oils of mint, peppermint, basil, rosemary, and lavender.”
