In this interview Gunver Juul (Danish Holistic Biomedicine School) explains how she has used CBD Oil in her practice to help patients suffering from Autoimmune Inflammatory Diseases Crohns Disease, IBS & Rheumatoid Arthritis
Cannabinoids have long been regarded as potential therapeutic agents for various conditions. Specifically, they show promise for conditions resulting from dysfunction of the immune system such as unresolved inflammation that leads to tissue damage. In particular, many individuals have claimed to use cannabinoids, in the form of various cannabis-based products, to alleviate symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) such as abdominal pain, diarrhea, and reduced appetite. They also have been used for a similar, but a much more serious condition, known as inflammatory bowel disease (IBD).
Nonetheless, through extensive research, scientists have cultivated an interest in the use of cannabidiol, another cannabinoid, as a promising therapeutic agent for digestive disorders due to its potent anti-inflammatory properties and its lack of psychotropic effects. The following article will review in detail some studies regarding the use of CBD for digestive disorders, as well as the possible benefits and side effects of the clinical use of CBD.
Why we need an alternative
In the last century, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) has become an epidemiologically important condition affecting many individuals around the world. Many doctors write it off as a psychosomatic issue, due to a notable lack of diagnosable changes to the structure of the digestive tract. As the name suggests, it involves irritability of the bowel; uncontrollable stomach aches. Many individuals suffer frequent bowel movements and diarrhea and are unable to plan their life around the schedule of their gut.
Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), while similar in pronunciation to IBS, is much more severe, and much more concrete. Inflammatory bowel diseases include Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis (UC). Thus, IBD does not represent one condition but instead is used as an umbrella term for any disease state that primarily causes inflammation of the digestive tract.
Crohn’s disease results in inflammation through the entire thickness of the digestive lining and usually presents in cycles, with asymptomatic periods followed by periods of intense pain, fatigue, lack of appetite, and ulcers through the entire length of the digestive tract, from the mouth to the anus. UC is similar but generally confined to the large intestine (colon) and rectum.
The current “best practices” for treating IBD often entail the use of drugs with names you probably couldn’t pronounce which aim to reduce inflammation by inhibiting certain inflammatory mechanisms in the gut or clearing out recurrent infections.
Although these treatments have been used for some time now, they are still largely ineffective for reducing or eliminating common IBD symptoms, and their toxicity profile is often questioned by patients and physicians alike. For this same reason, medical researchers are seeking therapeutic agents that provide symptomatic relief without severe risks associated with long-term use. According to a review of CBD for inflammatory bowel disease, drugs such as steroids are indicated for use in flare-ups and acute inflammation: these drugs are not intended for intermediate- or long-term use due to the adverse reactions they cause.
However, because of their inhibition of an important anti-tumor cytokine, these drugs increase the risk that a patient develops blood cancer. Therefore, physicians usually refrain from using these kinds of drugs, which have a very high risk to benefit ratio and can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars.
