A Strange Thing Happens Writing This Story About the MS Journey for Twin Brothers
Truth must be experienced rather than told because language fails to convey belief and is only the barest shadow of reality…Plato
A strange thing happens as I continued to write about this MS journey for twin brothers. You climb to the top of this Sick Mountain; and look out at an all-encompassing landscape with more insight than before. Time for everyone to look and see a complex medical system established over decades that has spawned relationships and functions of many different participants. Time to see inalienable changes happening not so distantly.
Does FDA Pay Attention to the Single Cell?
First, you need to identify the background, pieces and players. It starts with a body of human biochemistry based on the integrity of a single cell to be healthy or sick. There are two basic kinds of diseases…infectious caused by outside agents with potential to be cured by drugs or cellular degenerative diseases often caused by lifestyle choices which drugs may treat but not cure.
The largest most powerful structure is the FDA FORTRESS entrenched on drug experiments, mostly animal, in the name of clinical trials based on a double-blind, random process. Along the way, FDA passed a mandate that “only drugs can mitigate or cure disease;” so, they still actively continue to regulate herbs or seek natural patents for profits.
Cannabis was called an illegal dangerous schedule 1 substance in 1972, regardless of thousands of years of showing various healing benefits.
In 2010, the MS community felt a paradigm shift which shook the medical system to its foundation. A Liberation War for Blood Flow began with scientific evidence that structural venous malformations affecting blood flow, or reflux, may cause MS inflammation, not an attack by the body’s own protective immune cells. As expected, the medical establishment and the MS Society, did not accept any new theory that questioned their mantra and drug money flow.
Does FDA Pay Attention to a New Challenger?
Now, a new challenger is literally growing in the medical landscape. The cannabis or marijuana plant has many cannabinoids that integrate with the body’s own endocannabinoid receptors which may explain its natural affinity to healing various problems. So, this new Liberation War for Mother Nature’s Cannabis is starting where people can return to natural botanical roots with a new mantra: better to be on the omniscient side of nature’s pharmacy than against it.
In other words, if a 50 year experimental laboratory era has produced such an over-medicalized society with few results, then who would deny giving Nature its fair turn? Not us.
It is inevitable that the FDA’s drug culture will be seriously questioned; even as public trust is tarnished by the opioid crisis. This bastion will not disassemble readily and will resist with every legality they can formulate to maintain its superiority and profitability. The FDA laboratories, filled with unpronounceable man-made chemicals, are standing at a crossroads … how to clinically experiment with a natural product filled with phytochemicals in order to standardize a prescription that fits all needs.
In fact, the horizon clearly shows the many reasons why FDA may have too many conflicts to do this research properly. The climax of this journey is to call out that independent research is mandatory. There is no need to go through clinical trials and wait for approval to market a natural product through a highly detailed, specialized, and ultimate bureaucratic process that costs millions of dollars and takes years to complete.

Good News about Nature’s Challenge
The good news: there is a new, willing and able challenger to the FDA called the cannabis production company. This is where the governments, like Health Canada, can inspect, regulate and certify consistent and efficient production with leading edge technologies like automation, customization, scalability, with Good Manufacturing Practices to ensure purity and potency.
People’s voices must be heard clearly to integrate all medical specialists, play the role of an informed consumer, and remove Mother Nature from the laboratory dissection table.
The chapters start at the beginning with MS diagnosis for my twin brothers … tall, handsome strong men; to unsuccessful expensive drug treatments, to CCSVI rebels in Mexico when Canada blocked only MS patients from opening constricted veins, to Lyme’s disease antibiotic treatments, to other possible options, to residential care, to divorce and cognitive disabilities. Strangely, a cat’s spirit binds us all together.
Interestingly, this journey about truth didn’t plan to end with independent cannabis research; it just evolved to where there were no better directions and no better vista with the most hopes.

As a bottom line, we know there is no benevolence found here in corporate marketing and profiteering as the Plutocrats (Rule by the Wealthy) will not let go of these vaults without fearsome opposition. Only the government’s highest levels can intercept and redirect any would-be monopolies. But people need to speak on behalf of Mother Nature’s inalienable intellectual rights and protect them with openness and diversity. Write to elected officials.
