Bizarre Medical Treatments You Probably Didn’t Know Exist

You may not have heard of these bizarre medical treatments before. While some of these disgusting medical practices do work, some don’t, they’re still used as a measure to treat certain diseases.

Smoking Therapy

You all know very well the dangerous health risk of smoking because it has over 300 carcinogens that have proved to be as damaging to the lungs of the smokers.  Nevertheless, research has shown a 50% lower risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease or Parkinson disease in smokers as compared to the non-smokers. Nicotine has also found to give an encouraging result especially in improving Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) symptoms and reducing the risk of developing ulcerative colitis. Still, I don’t agree with this type of therapy for adults and particularly not for teens and children.

Marijuana Therapy

Dave Warden, a bud tender at Private Organic Therapy (P.O.T.), a non-profit co-operative medical marijuana dispensary, displays various types of marijuana available to patients on October 19, 2009 in Los Angeles, California. Attorney General Eric Holder announced new guidelines today for federal prosecutors in states where the use of marijuana for medicinal purposes is allowed under state law. Federal prosecutors will no longer trump the state with raids on the southern California dispensaries as they had been doing, but Los Angeles County District Attorney Steve Cooley recently began a crackdown campaign that will include raids against the facilities. Cooley maintains that virtually all marijuana dispensaries are in violation of the law because they profit from their product. The city of LA has been slow to come to agreement on how to regulate its 800 to 1,000 dispensaries. Californians voted to allow sick people with referrals from doctors to consume cannabis with the passage of state ballot Proposition 215 in 1996 and a total of 14 states now allow the medicinal use of marijuana.

Several researchers have advocated the use of marijuana as a drug and are focusing on benefits of marijuana therapy in adults and kids with ADHD. Even though marijuana is said to be beneficial to someone being treated for a painful disease, it can be awfully destructive to others. I strongly believe that the daily use of marijuana can leave many side effects. Well, not always will you see its destructive property, but the risk is always there. I don’t deny a positive change in the behavior of ADHD sufferers after smoking marijuana, but you must realize that, over the time, marijuana can begin to suppress the immunity, neurological and serotonin system, which can eventually result in depression. I think, besides smoking marijuana, there must be other best ways and methods to treat ADHD.

I knew about the studies regarding a lower risk of Parkinson’s in smokers, My mother had Parkinson’s and I have told people this before as I read about this in information from The Parkinsons Society, no one ever believes me when I tell them about it.
