Medicinal Canabis for pain @ -  Book excerpt 5 Chapters - Mom shares belief that autistic son Deryn (with tourettets) was healed of cancer from her utilization of marijuana oil.
+ - Edited  -
"A year later he was told he had a secondary cancer – Langerhans cell sarcoma, which only 5 people in the world currently have.  Yet no one had ever been found to have the 2 cancers together making Deryn 1 in 7 billion people to have it.  After nearly 4 years of hospital treatment, nothing was working, so his mum Callie resorted to trying to give Deryn Bedrocan, a cannabis-based painkiller that wasn’t available in the UK. 
But despite doctors saying it could be effective, it had not been tested on children so she couldn’t prescribe it. 
In an except from hew new book The Boy In 7 Billion, published in the Mail on Sunday,
Callie said: ‘We took a decision that will horrify many parents reading this, & horrified me, too. 
After all, I’d never seen anything positive come of smoking cannabis, & in my days working in nightclubs, illegal drugs had been my enemy.  ‘But if it could help my darling boy escape his daily torment, I was willing to try it.’  They then set about finding some cannabis. Deryn’s dad, Simon, arranged to meet someone at a nearby petrol station to pick some up, despite them knowing it was a class B drug, which carries a sentence of up to 5 years’ imprisonment for possession.  Meanwhile, Deryn’s condition was worsening & doctors told them that if there was no improvement in 2 weeks, he would be placed in palliative care.  After buying a rice cooker & vegetable glycerine, Callie was able to make the ‘tincture’ suitable for a vaporise pen & gave it to Deryn. 
Callie said: ‘After 10 minutes, Deryn said that the pain had decreased a little & he felt more relaxed, words we had been longing to hear’. 
Yet his pain continued to come back & by December 2013, Deryn had moved out of hospital & into a hospice where he planned his own funeral. 
Then 1 night, Deryn woke up in the early hours of the morning & told his mum:
‘I don’t want any more morphine, Mum. It makes me feel like I’m not here.’  Not being able to bear seeing him in so much pain, Callie decided to give Deryn a small amount of cannabis tincture directly in his mouth when no one was looking.  After about half hour, he was no longer having a panic attack & felt at peace. 
Callie said: ‘Over the coming days, my priority was allowing him to die with his faculties intact, so whenever Deryn felt a twinge somewhere, I would put another 5 ml of the tincture underneath his tongue &, within a few minutes, he felt good again.  ‘Deryn’s mouth, fingers, stomach, gums, tongue, hips, knees, legs & back had been constantly painful for as long as I could remember, so this was nothing short of fantastic.’ 
A short while later, a hospice doctor told Callie: ‘We’re no longer sure Deryn is dying.’ 
Since then, he has gone from strength to strength & was removed from the hospice."
Patterson, James
and Friedman, Hall  Against Medical Advice  - Preface - "One morning in March of 1989, just before my
5th birthday, I woke up as a normal, healthy body.  By that afternoon, I had an irresistible urge to shake my head - continually...Before long, my body became an explosive, volatile, and unpredictable force with a mind and personality of its  own.  It jerked, and tested, bent in half, and gyrated without warning until I was almost always in motion.  I bit down on my teeth until I actually broke them and howled in pain, because of the exposed nerves.  I twisted my back around with such force that I tore muscle tissue & had to be drugged asleep to stop myself from doing it.  My mind fed me thoughts so frightening I couldn't even talk about them to my parents...I felt like a boy on the end of a puppeteer's string. 
What made it even worse was knowing that I was also the puppeteer."
Chapter 53 "There's anger too, but not the kind that leads to my rage attacks. 
This is an anger that can be used & channeled.  The idea of fighting back comes with such urgency, that I want to write it all down, so I can think about it when I wake up again... The war has now begun." 
After a couch fire, the family began an intervention, which with Cory's eventual cooperation, Cory's life began to turn around... Cory Friedman recovered from a diabolical case of OCD, Tourette's syndrome anxiety disorder. He remains now on minimal medication with minimal Tourettete symptoms.
Against Medical Advice: James Patterson, Hal Friedman  "Cory Friedman woke up 1 morning when he was 5
years old with the uncontrollable urge to twitch his neck. From that day forward his life became a hell of
irrepressible tics & involuntary utterances.
 Cory embarked on an excruciating journey from specialist to specialist to discover the cause of his disease. Soon it became unclear what tics were symptoms of his
disease & what were side effects of the countless combinations of drugs.
The only certainty is that it kept getting worse. Simply put: Cory Friedman's life was a living hell."

May-09 - Tourette Syndrome: Synaptic or Demonic?  from
This author is 50% correct.  Satan is often the root of Tourette's & NOT the Holy Spirit. 
Be reminded; Satan is a counterfeiter.  If at any time a healthy holy acting out is precipitated by the Holy Ghost, then a demonic mirror image can occur, but such a counterfeit is always not nice. 
Discernment is always needed.  Discernment is a gift, so request & use it for God's honor. 
A "dis-ease" such as Tourette's is never nice.
