House Calls by Gary Yarbrough MD

The following twenty-one stories are from actual house calls I have made in three different states during my thirty years of practice as a rural family physician. Some are humorous, some sad, some sublime. I have changed the names and in a few cases altered circumstances slightly to protect privacy as much as possible. I sincerely hope that with these measures – and with some of the details blurry enough in my memory – no one will recognize themselves or acquaintances, or take offense if they do.I hope you enjoy these stories as much as I appreciated having had the chance to live them. ~The Author

CBD-Rich Hemp Oil: Cannabis Medicine is Back by Steven Leonard-Johnson RN PhD and Tina Rappaport BFA

Prior to the outlawing of cannabis in 1937, major pharmaceutical companies produced a wide variety of cannabis-based medicines, but cannabis has actually been used as a medicine for thousands of years. Although it has a long history, the recent discovery (1992) of the body’s widespread endocannabinoid system (ECS) has thrust cannabis back into the limelight again as a viable medicine.

In 2012 over 2.5 million prescriptions were written for medical marijuana in the United States. CBD and THC are both cannabinoids found in cannabis. However, while THC produces a “high” in the user, CBD does not. And now legal CBD-rich hemp oil is available over-the-counter in all 50 states, without a prescription.

It was discovered that the Hemp Family of plants (cannabis, marijuana) is loaded with cannabinoids that stimulate our ECS receptor sites. These sites are found in the brain, organs, glands, connective tissue and immune cells and plays regulatory roles in many physiological processes including appetite, pain-sensation, mood and memory. The primary purpose of this system revolves around maintaining balance in the body.

Cannabinoids found in all varieties of cannabis work in harmony with the cannabinoids we naturally produce when our system is functioning properly. It is now coming to light that we may very well be “Endocannabinoid Deficient” and supplementing with Cannabidiol, known as CBD, may provide just what we’re missing to restore optimum health.

The health benefits of cannabidiol (CBD) from natural hemp oil is this book’s primary focus. It explores the similarities, differences, uses and benefits of hemp, cannabis and medical marijuana along with the interplay of THC and CBD. Their 480 other components are also discussed, such as terpenoids, flavonoids, enzymes, vitamins, etc.

Make no mistake about it, the endocannabinoid system, although newly discovered, is just as important as any other bodily system, like the muscular, cardiac, circulatory or digestive system. The ECS requires its own specialized medicine as found in the Hemp Family of plants, which is also known as cannabis, and which includes all strains of marijuana.
Here is a list of conditions known and/or being researched that may be helped by cannabinoid therapeutics and supplementation:

Acne
ADD/ADHD
Addiction
AIDS
ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease)
Alzheimer’s
Anorexia
Antibiotic Resistance
Anxiety
Atherosclerosis
Arthritis
Asthma
Autism
Bipolar
Cancer
Colitis/Crohn’s
Depression
Diabetes
Endocrine Disorders
Epilepsy/Seizure
Fibromyalgia
Glaucoma
Heart Disease
Huntington’s
Inflammation
Irritable Bowel
Kidney Disease
Liver Disease
Metabolic Syndrome
Migraine
Mood Disorders
Motion Sickness
Multiple Sclerosis
Nausea
Neurodegeneration
Neuropathic Pain
Obesity
OCD
Osteoporosis
Parkinson’s
Prion/Mad Cow Disease
PTSD
Rheumatism
Schizophrenia
Sickle Cell Anemia
Skin Conditions
Sleep Disorders
Spinal Cord Injury
Stress
Stroke/TBI

The short story?
You have an Endo-Cannabinoid System (ECS).
It helps regulate many bodily systems.
Mother’s milk has endo-cannabinoids and you produce your own, or not.
You could be suffering from clinical Endo-Cannabinoid Deficiency Syndrome (CEDS).
The Hemp family of plants is the only other source of cannabinoids.
One cannabinoid, CBD, just may be the greatest dietary supplement of our lifetime.

10% of the proceeds from sales of this book will be donated to the American Cannabis Nurses Association in an effort to bring together nurses, to share, integrate and one day certify nurses in the science of endocannabinoid therapeutics in nursing practice.

In Harm’s Way: A View from the Epicenter of Liberia’s Ebola Crisis by Nancy D. Sheppard

When long-time American missionary Nancy Sheppard volunteered to work with her friend Nancy Writebol in ELWA Hospital’s Ebola ward, she did not know what to expect. Night after night she worked, suiting up and disinfecting the medical personnel and helping wherever needed. While it was difficult, she recognized she was witnessing something extraordinary.

Author Nancy Sheppard writes, “What am I seeing here? I asked myself. It was invisible to all but me. This dying woman was perhaps the most untouchable person in the world and yet Dr. Brantly was touching her. And he was not just touching her physically, but emotionally and spiritually as well. Who was I that I should be granted the privilege of witnessing this? It was somehow both utterly tragic and supremely glorious.”

When, despite following protocols to the best of their abilities, Nancy Writebol and Dr. Kent Brantly were diagnosed with Ebola, she knew how they would suffer as they fought this deadly disease.

But, “In Harm’s Way” is more than a book about ELWA Hospital’s Ebola ward, it is the story of Liberia itself. Told in the sympathetic voice of one who cares for the country and her people, Nancy explains the multiple societal and cultural factors that have exacerbated the Ebola crisis in her adopted home. Warm and human, this book takes you into Liberia’s epicenter of the war against Ebola. You will not emerge the same.
