Oregon’s Youngest Medical Cannabis Patient Is Curing Her Cancer – See How She’s Doing It
The amazing story of the little girl who is very close to beating cancer using cannabis oil and chemo (because she’s a minor) is warming hearts around the world.
The THC which is found in cannabis have been proved to be anti-carcinogenic for quite some time. In the 1980’s, cannabinoid receptors were discovered in the human brain, which made it obvious that our body has to synthesize something that binds to these receptors. Our bodies produce these compounds in our own endocannabinoid system, which is now known to be responsible for a number of biological functions, thus accepting he wide therapeutic properties that help curing various diseases.
Numerous studies have confirmed that cannabis indeed kills cancer cells and rebuilds the immune system, and yet there are still no human trials.
Even though it’s been discovered that chemo actually fuels the growth of cancer cells and practically destroys the immune system, radiation and chemotherapy are the only offered alternatives by oncologists. Luckily, more and more people are recognizing the powers of cannabis and decide to choose it over chemo or radiation.
The story of the brave Mykayla started in May, 2012 when she got very ill. On July the same year the doctors diagnosed her with T-cell acute lymphoblastic leukaemia which is a very rare and aggressive form of childhood leukaemia. Her DNA was altered in somehow, and it caused her bone marrow to start producing leukaemia white blood cells. Lymphoblasts are immature cells which typically differentiate to form mature lymphocytes. Normally lymphoblasts are found in the bone marrow only, but in acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL), lymphoblasts proliferate uncontrollably and are found in large numbers in the peripheral blood smear.
Here is a summary of her treatment via her web-site:
This protocol is used to treat low risk leukemia patients (Mykayla is technically intermediate risk). It is a 3-5 chemotherapy drug and steroid combination that is done in 5 rounds lasting 2.5-3 years. The first 4 rounds are very intense and last for 6-8 months. The last round is called “maintenance”, it is done mainly from home and is far less damaging then the first 4 rounds. Mykayla will begin maintenance chemotherapy in February of 2013. Mykayla began chemotherapy on July 16th 2012 (she began steroid treatment on July 14th 2012). Mykayla’s Lymphoblast level was monitored daily for the first 8 days and weekly or twice weekly thereafter. Her lymphoblast level would go down after receiving chemotherapy but a few days after it would be back up and sometimes higher than before chemotherapy. The doctors were concerned. They spoke to us about the possibility of Mykayla having a bone marrow transplant due to the leukemia not going into remission with the chemotherapy. 95% of children with leukemia go into remission during the first 30 days of chemotherapy… the majority of them go into remission just a few days after receiving chemotherapy for the first time.
Her oncologist suggested cranial radiation since she is intermediate risk, t-cell phenotype, and had a very small amount of leukemia cells in her brain and spinal fluid. But, cranial radiation to treat leukemia is a topic that is already controversial between the different cancer research groups. Mykayla’s family is very glad that they refused that type of treatment because their little angel now is remission.
“Once again we as parents feel that the balance between natural medicine and conventional medicine has been lost. “
We had a plan from the very beginning to combat Mykayla’s cancer and chemotherapy naturally and that was to use cannabis in the form of very concentrated and potent oil, raw cannabis juice, and cannabis cooked into food. Cannabis has been known to kill cancer, protect the body from the damage of chemotherapy, relieve pain and nausea, and it is a neuroprotectant and antioxidant. In order to use this form of treatment Mykayla had to get a recommendation from another physician and a state medical marijuana license. This took us 10 days to complete… Mykayla began cannabis therapy on July 24th 2012! Instantly she was able to eat again. That was the first benefit that we noticed. She was happier, she smiled and laughed constantly. We loved it! One week after we began the oil treatment Mykayla’s physicians notified us that her leukemia had vanished from her bone marrow and blood! She was in remission. Never again will I fear cancer… We found the answer! Mykayla is currently 6 months into the intense treatment part and has never used any pain relievers (not even Tylenol) and has only had to take anti-nausea medication a few times.
“There are other aspects of our lives that play a role in Mykayla’s treatment. “
“Cancer thrives in an acidic environment and is fed by sugar. We try our best to create a diet for Mykayla that is healthy, vegetarian (vegan if she will tolerate), organic, with no artificial additives, preservatives, or dyes. We also give her tons of alkali water. Although from time to time Mykayla just like any other kid slips on her diet… she is NEVER allowed things such as soda pops and high fructose corn syrup.”
Other things that her family found helpful were Vitamin C, Green Tea extract, Milk Thistle, Beta Carotene, coconut oil, vitamin D, essiac tea, COQ10, selenium, omega 3, garlic, cannabis, and tons of fruits and vegetables. Moreover, positive attitude and providing her with a happy, bright, and loving home also plays a very important role.
Cell Counts Affected By Cannabis
July 14th 2012 (diagnosis day and steroid treatment began)
Mykayla’s Lymphoblast percentage in her blood smear was 33%
July 15th 2012 – 51%
Lymphoblasts in Mykayla’s blood smear July 16th 2012 – 11%
Lymphoblasts in Mykayla’s blood smear (began chemotherapy) July 17th 2012 – 14%
Lymphoblasts in Mykayla’s blood smear July 18th 2012 – 16%
Lymphoblasts in Mykayla’s blood smear July 19th 2012 – 3%
Lymphoblasts in Mykayla’s blood smear July 20th 2012 – 29%
Lymphoblasts in Mykayla’s blood smear (got released from hospital) July 23rd 2012 – 31%
Lymphoblasts in Mykayla’s blood smear July 24th 2012 – BEGAN CANNABIS OIL July 26th 2012 – 5%
Lymphoblasts in Mykayla’s blood smear July 30th 2012 – 3%
Lymphoblasts in Mykayla’s blood (doctor spoke to us about Mykayla’s Lymphoblast count failing to go down to 0 and said that a Bone Marrow Transplant MAY BE in our near future because her blasts are not gone from her blood.)
August 2nd 2012 – 0% blasts
August 6th 2012 – 0% blasts
August 13th 2012 – 0% blasts
August 20th 2012 – 0% blasts
TODAY – 0% blasts!
“The very next time we saw the oncologist they told us Mykayla was in remission. Some may say that cannabis does not “cure” cancer… I am not saying the steroids and chemo didn’t help… but this right here shows something… proof enough for me! Some say cannabis is inappropriate for children… We say cancer is inappropriate for children.”
