New Office Hours, now Tuesday thru Friday, 12pm-5pm.
Medical Cannabis is permissible in California thanks to the Compassionate Use of Act of 1996
Medical cannabis relieves pain safely, without danger to your liver, kidneys, stomach, and other organs. Daily opiates, acetaminophen, or NSAIDs, with their risks and side effects, may not be a better, safer option. Medical cannabis may relieve your pain and reduce your anxiety better than regular medicines.If you have problems tolerating prescription or non-prescription pain relievers, or they don’t relieve your pain, or both, medical cannabis may be a safe, effective alternative. Or cannabis might enable you to reduce the doses.
You will be offered complimentary treatment in the office with cutting edge non-drug therapies for pain, depression, anxiety, and addiction. Most patients leave the office without the pain and stress they walk in with.
Dr. Eidelman has natural treatment programs for many of the diseases for which patients need cannabis. His knowledge, based on 30 years experience in natural medicine, is unique.
Dr. Eidelman specializes as a natural medicine consultant, including matters relating to medical cannabis.
Pursuant to the Compassionate Use Act, also known as Proposition 215, Dr. Eidelman will consult with patients who have serious illnesses or conditions for which cannabis provides medical benefit. If you have a serious illness, and can prove it by presenting prior medical records or the name and phone of a physician who can verify it, you can become a patient of Dr. Eidelman.
If you have a serious illness but without this type of verification, you can still see Dr. Eidelman, who can evaluate your medical history and exam you to determine if you qualify as being “seriously ill” enough for cannabis.
Dr. Eidelman will also be ready to talk of other alternative methods for healing and relieving suffering.
The fee for a cannabis consultation is $250.
There has been a lot of news about dangerous drugs, that injure or kill millions of people per year. Yes, these drugs are FDA approved and prescribed by your doctor. Or you might take them over the counter with or without the doctor’s advice.
Statin drugs made the New York Times recently, with the headline, “Safety Alerts Cite Cholesterol Drugs Side Effects.” After years of silence, FDA finally warned the public that memory problems, diabetes, and muscle pain. They still forgot to mention that statin drugs can cause the worsening of cardiac muscle function, because statins inhibit production of CoEnzyme Q10, a necessary cofactor in the production of energy in the cell.
The third best selling class of drugs is Proton Pump Inhibitors, PPIs, for reducing stomach acid. Natural doctors for years have said that because acid is a necessary part of the digestive process, eliminating acid would have long term consequences, in addition to short term consequences! Reports are now coming in. One such consequence is C. difficile diarrhea, which as the name suggests, is a difficult condition to suffer through and to remove, unless you’re a natural doctor! In 2010, FDA announced that PPI’s may increase your risk of fractures of the hip, wrist, and spine. There is also an increased risk of pneumonia. Oh yes, and it’s not really that effective at treating the actual symptoms. So you get a bonus: You get to keep your symptoms, and you get new ones, and if you’re lucky, insurance pays for it. Otherwise you pay for it. Double.
Vaccines are turning out to be dangerous, though the exact reason remains elusive. Perhaps there is more than one reason. Some people (infants, children, and adults) may react to the mercury preservative. But there may very well be other factors. And, of course, there is evidence they don’t really work very well, if at all, at preventing infections.
Just to keep things in perspective about dangerous drugs. In fact, foods, herbs, and spices are actually the best medicine, in most cases.
