Alcohol is a major cause of cancer

A causal link exists between consumption of alcohol and cancers of the liver, colon, upper digestive tract and for breast cancer.

This study connects the dots between cancer and total alcohol consumption.  Many cases of cancer can be prevented if alcohol is limited to one drink per day in women and two drinks per day in men.  Even more cancer could be prevented by avoiding alcohol entirely.

Original study from the British Medical Journal referenced here.

Sugar – the bitter truth

Skyrocketing obesity and diabetic levels in the US are alarming.  Could these be related to sugar intake?

Check out this video by Robert Lustig, a specialist on pediatric hormone disorders and the leading expert in childhood obesity at the University of California, San Francisco, School of Medicine.

What exactly is the connective tissue matrix?

A huge part of the endocannabinoid system (ECS) operates in the connective tissue.  Connective tissue is the tissue that connects all of our body’s cells together. Think of a wall with bricks. The bricks represent the cells, and the connective tissue is the mortar that holds the cells together giving shape to the wall.

Connective Tissue Matrix

Connective Tissue Matrix

Connective Tissue as Your Body’s Internet: Connective tissue is not just an inert glue-like substance like mortar, however. It’s also kind of like our body’s internet. Sometimes it is referred to as the connective tissue matrix. This matrix is a dynamic web of communication and support system between all of our body’s cells, vital to all functions. It is a body-wide system where all of the cells can send messages to each other. For example, if a virus infects a cell in your body, the cell communicates this information through connective tissue to other cells including your immune system. This mobilizes your immune response and gets your body ready to defend itself from the virus.

Every function and every process in the living body involves the connective-tissue-matrix in one-way or another! For example, the matrix nourishes all cells in our body, and all waste products of cells pass through this matrix. The very existence of all organ cells depends on the intact functioning of the system that guarantees a suitable environment for their existence.

Connective Tissue and Healing: Connective tissue forms the basis of our healing response. When the body is injured it is the connective tissue that sounds the alarm and mobilizes the body’s defenses. It begins the clotting of our blood, and is the source of the biochemicals that start the healing and repair processes. In chronic disease, inflammation rages out of control in our body creating pain and preventing healing. Long term chronic inflammation in the connective tissue contributes to and causes cancer, heart disease and stroke.

I believe that it is in the matrix that the causes and cures for so many systemic and chronic diseases can be found. I see this everyday in my medical practice. I also believe that it is in the matrix that the solution to the problem of cancer is likely to be found. When patients in my medical practice adequately address issues of connective tissue, the healing response is freed, and the results can be amazing!

CBD reduces blood pressure

CBD reduces resting blood pressure, as well as blood pressure increases caused by stress.  That’s right, and it helps to remember that CBD is particularly good for anxiety too.

Check out this study by researchers of the University of Nottingham and Oxford, United Kingdom, Royal Derby Hospital Centre, in the Journal of Clinical Investigation Insight.

Dr. Jake Felice to speak on the 2017 Seattle Hempfest medical panel

Did you know that topical cannabis reduces pain in just minutes after application, broadens range of motion, and does not give patients a head high?  Additionally, topical cannabis helps you use less harmful medications such as opiates, and cannabis is one of the safest pain medications that you can use.

I am excited to announce that I will be speaking again this year at Hempfest 2017 the weekend of August 19th at Myrtle Edwards Park in Seattle about the benefits of topical and raw applications of cannabis for chronic pain.

Hempfest is a free event, and speakers will be presenting the most up to date science and information on all things cannabis. For medical, educational, industrial and other topics, check out all of the Hempfest speakers here.

A full list of Hempfest events can be found here.
