National Second Opinion Day 4/20/16 – All Veterans Ask VA for Second Opinion

Temple VAMC

There are NOT many Veterans who have complete trust and faith in their primary care physicians at the Veterans Affairs Healthcare System. For that there are many reasons:

  1. Most doctors already have the diagnosis figured out and the first line of treatment of a physical condition is with pharmaceuticals (complete list of over 1,500 pharmaceuticals the VA uses is here) and rarely offer alternative treatments such as Yoga, Acupuncture, Aqua-therapy and Chiropractic care through Pain Management and Rehabilitation clinics in each VA.

Charlotte’s Web Makes History in Colorado

Charlotte's Web Makes History

A New Mexico family elected to fly their infant daughter to Colorado in order to treat her for a rare form of epilepsy.  After multiple failed attempts by doctors to reduce the seizures, the family asked the hospital if they could use cannabis oil.  A few weeks passed, and with the continued failure of pharmacological drugs, approval was finally granted by hospital administration.  Doctors, with their hands tied, were unable to administer the cannabis oil.  The parents acquired Charlotte’s Web Cannabis Oil (Named after Charlotte Figi, who suffered from 300 seizures a day and is virtually seizure free today) and gave their infant daughter mother nature’s medicine.  Their daughter, who was having 15 seizures a day, has experienced a lessening of seizure activity.
