Currently, the two main cannanoids from the marijuana plant that are of medical interest are THC and CBD. THC increases appetite and reduces nausea. The FDA-approved THC-based medications are used for these purposes. THC may also decrease pain, inflammation, and muscle control problems. CBD is a cannabinoid that does not affect the mind or behavior. It may be useful in reducing pain inflammation, controlling epileptic seizures, possibly even treating mental illness and addictions. Researchers are continuing to explore the possible uses of THC, CBD, and other cannabinoids for medical treatment.

Dr. Charley Ferrer is a world-renowned Clinical Sexologist & Sex Therapist. She is the award winning author of several books on relationships, sexuality and self-empowerment. She was diagnosed with breast cancer in February 2016. Frustrated with the lack of information and treatment options available, Dr. Charley created Cancer Tamer Foundation which provides education and inspiration to cancer patients. She’s also the host & producer of Cancer Tamer TV Talk Show and conducts interviews on various aspects of care, both traditional and modern. The show provides education, information on new treatment options and health care, as well as inspiration to viewers. Cancer Tamer is based on the philosophy that cancer is not an “outside force” invading but an “inside force” residing. It’s in our blood, our breasts, our DNA. In our attempts to destroy it, we are inadvertently destroying ourselves. Dr. Charley’s revolutionary new way of thinking about cancer is turning heads, creating controversy, and reminding men and women that we should not be at war with our body! Check out Dr. Charley’s new book, Breast Cancer: From Diagnosis to Surgery.

Cancer Tamer was founded by Dr. Charley Ferrer on the philosophy that cancer is not an “outside force” you must destroy to get healthy; it is an inside force that you need to “tame” and learn to live with to ensure a healthy more fulfilling life as cancer is in your blood, in your bones, and in your body. And once it’s gone, it’ll remain with you as a memory or fear of recurrence. Thus, the need to come to a better understanding and amicable co-existence with cancer and it’s effects.
