<p>The Wendy Love Edge Show with Topher Kogen does not dispense medical advice and all of your health choices are your own.</p> <p>Guests: Dr. Uma Dhanabalan Dr. Dhanabalan is a highly-respected physician trained in Family Medicine and Occupational &amp; Environmental Medicine from Harvard Medical School. She is a Fellow of the American Academy of Family Physicians and a Diplomat Certified in Cannabis Medicine. Dr. Dhanabalan is the Founder/CEO of Global Health &amp; Hygiene Solutions, LLC whose mission is to promote wellness and prevent illness in the global and private sectors. She currently practices at Uplifting Health &amp; Wellness in Cambridge, MA. She is dedicated to &ldquo;Educating, Embracing, and Empowering&rdquo; her patients while promoting cannabis as a treatment option. Dr. Dhanabalan believes that &ldquo;Cannabis is not an entrance drug; it is an exit drug from pharmaceuticals and narcotics.&rdquo;&trade;️</p> <p>Dr Brian Nichol &quot;Medical cannabis patients are certified by a physician as having a qualifying condition. The patient is issued a card and then, too often is left to decide for themselves as to the best treatment. Dispensary employees are usually the cornerstone of giving patients advice on strains and how to use cannabis. Modern medicine treats disease with the drugs that are effective for the majority of patients, forgetting that we are all very different individuals. What is a good choice for one patient may be ineffective or cause side effects in another. Although most patients see some improvement in using cannabis, getting the best result is a bit more complicated&hellip; I have seen patients without much knowledge or direction experience lukewarm results of medical marijuana. I have also seen those so-so results turn into remarkable improvement under the knowledgeable direction of a doctor that treats the individual patient using the correct combination/forms/amount of cannabis. It is my hope to sift through all the noise, marketing, agenda driven studies, politics and stigmas encountered when one tries to be an informed medical cannabis patient. I want you to get the best result from medical cannabis you can.&quot;</p> <p>Dr Mary Clifton Mary Clifton, M.D. is a board-certified, licensed, internal medicine doctor. ...
