"The first authoritative and comprehensive guide for treating chronic pain with medical marijuana from a holistic family physician who has treated more than six thousand chronic pain patients with cannabis. While the number of patients using medical marijuana increases every year, misconceptions about cannabis and whether it's harmful or dangerous still exist. In Cannabis for Chronic Pain, Dr. Rav explains the potential of marijuana's capacity for healing anyone afflicted with chronic pain. Medical marijuana is a safe, non-addictive alternative to dangerous opiate pain pills. Along with sharing his own story of using medical marijuana to heal from a severe case of shingles, Dr. Rav guides you through the cannabis and holistic treatment for your specific chronic pain condition. If you are suffering from arthritis, back pain, migraines, fibromyalgia, menstrual cramps, IBS, Crohn's Disease, anxiety, depression, or pain from cancer or its treatment, this may be the book for you. Dr. Rav offers step by step instruction on the benefits and appropriate use of medical marijuana. And he dispels many of the misconceptions. Did you know that you don't have to smoke or eat cannabis for it to be effective? There are now patches and drops. We are entering a new age of acceptance and perhaps most importantly, as Dr. Rav highlights, it is now possible to create a distinct cannabis prescription for different types of chronic pain. Find what works for you and finally get the relief you need. Cannabis for Chronic Pain is the new, definitive guide for anyone who suffers from chronic pain"--

Very helpful book. I was not looking for naturopath recommendations. Everything else was written clearly and easy to follow.
As well as reading about Cannabis I particularly appreciated the chapters on Inflammation which leads directly into the chapter on Arthritis. It's becoming better known the significance that food plays in managing Arthritis pain. The 4 pages on food choice were a wonder of clarity, better than I've ever seen. I copied those 4 pages to use as easy reference in making better food choices. Most of my favourite foods are on the no no list, all acidic which initiate the flairs of Arthritis. Oh well.
The chapter on Low Back Pain was excellent, each yoga pose written in detail so I wrote those as well. I'm confident that I won't need to use any Rx for low back pain. It's a 20 minute relaxing work-out that strengthens the lower back.
