Be Informed. Be Well. Episode 13: Dr. Patricia Frye – Cannabis & Treatment of Auto-Immune Diseases

Dr. Patricia Frye, an integrative expert in cannabis and its action in auto-immune disease, is called upon by patients whose bodies are seemingly attacking themselves. This bizarre action by our own defense mechanism is often misunderstood and poorly treated.

In this UPG podcast, John Malanca discusses cannabis and treating diseases when the battleground is within ourselves. Most of us have heard of the struggles and often devastation caused when, for some unknown reason, approximately 10 million patient’s bodies attack themselves. This broad-brush term “auto-immune” means the individual has little defense against a disease which has attacked them.

In this podcast, John Malanca and Dr. Frye discuss aspects of these diseases which include: What is an autoimmune disease? Some of the more better known but still somewhat poorly understood include; Lupus, celiac disease, MS, Type 1 Diabetes, Rheumatoid arthritis (RA), Psoriasis, and inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), which includes Crohn’s Disease (CD) and Ulcerative Colitis (UC).

For those who suffer from these and other diseases of unknown origin often wonder if Cannabis helps? In order to understand the how and whys, John and Dr. Frye discuss what are the worst autoimmune diseases? Are autoimmune diseases curable? Are you born with autoimmune diseases? Are autoimmune diseases genetic? In addition, they also discuss; what is the difference between autoimmune diseases vs disorders? What causes autoimmune diseases? What is the life expectancy of someone with autoimmune disease? Do people with autoimmune disease get sick more often and does having an autoimmune disease mean you have a weakened immune system?

Tune in to watch this fascinating interview and learn about Cannabis, symptom management, treatment, and general knowledge of these rare and often difficult diseases to treat.
