Cancer is a group of diseases that is characterized by uncontrolled cell growth leading to invasion of surrounding tissues that spread to other parts of the body. Cancer can begin anywhere in the body and is usually related to one or more genetic mutations that allow normal cells to become malignant by interfering with internal cellular control mechanisms, such as programmed cell death or by preventing ...Read more
No.: No study has ever shown that cinnamon can cure breast cancer. Whether it can help fight or prevent breast cancer is an open question. A group at city of hope has found that an extract of cinnamon can interfere with a protein that helps tumors develop a blood supply which might make it help fight tumors such as breast cancer but this is far from seeing it work in patients, as with other studies. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

What are your thoughts on coconut oil, apple cider vinegar, and tumeric as cancer fighting supplements?

Hard to say: There have been a number of recent reviews of potential effects from the higher levels of cannabidiol (not THC) in hemp oils, and how they might have anti-tumor effects, anti-convulsant effects particularly in some refractory childhood forms of epilepsy, as well as effects for treatment of neuropathic pain and muscle spasm. However as with THC there is uncertainty in dosing, purity, other issues. ...Read more

I am wondering if you can get addicted to a product called Elixinol, it is a hemp oil and coconut extract combination made up of hemp seeds and stalks?
Not very likely: at least from a physical dependency point of view. Hemp oil and similar products have a lot of CBD (cannabinodiol), which actually has actions which are pretty much the opposite of THC, and are not thought to be able to produce physical dependency. However, physical dependency is not a necessary component for having addiction (better termed now a severe substance use disorder). Why the concern? ...Read more

Will putting hemp oil on after tretinoin help soothe my skin and help with redness and peeling without effecting the tretinoin?
Will putting hemp oil on my face letting it soak in for 30 minutes then put Retin a (tretinoin) on minimise redness and flaking?
Possibly: Products like Retin-A exfoliate the skin, and WILL cause some dryness and flaking in some people. If this is too bothersome, try applying every other night. A moisturizer can help with the flaking, but use caution. Some people have had acne breakouts using hemp oil in their face, so if your acne worsens, stop the oil. You can also ask your Dr what moisturizer he/she recommends! ...Read more
What supplements should be taken for a vegan diet? Taking 1000 mcg b12, 4 grams omega 3 from hemp oil and ground flax and protein from lugumes. Thx.
Minerals & vitamin D: Vegans are likely to become deficient in vitamin D, calcium, iodine, iron, vitamin A, zinc, and iodine. Even if you supplement, the diet is primarily a moral rather than a health-promoting decision; when you control for the fact that vegans have other healthy habits, the claimed benefits mostly vanish. It's your decision and I'm glad you've asked. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Met some people who used RSO (RickSimpson Oil) cannabis oil to cure their cancer, left out (cancer) last question. Thoughts on validity of claim?
Cannabis oil: This oil has not been evaluated to FDA standards in order to determine its efficacy or safety. This does not mean it is not safe or effective, but up until now most research has been done by advocates. Do you think it plausible that a single oil could cure all cancer types as claimed? ...Read more

No: Unfortunately, neither cannabis oil, peppermint oil, lemongrass oil, lavender oil, nor any other snake oil cures cancer. Cancer is not one disease, but a group of many diseases. Some cancers are curable, others are not. Treatment is almost always available, up to a point where treatment is no longer effective or where a patient no longer wants to be treated. ...Read more

I am aware of no: evidence that cannabis in any form can treat any kind of cancer. I will refer your question to the holistic medicine person. Certainly cannabis has other functions in improving appetite in people with cancer, reducing the wasting process often associated with it, and particularly reducing nausea. So, it may have distinct role, but am unaware of any proof that it has any chemotherapeutic effect. ...Read more
