RSO and COPD
I want to share my husband Ralph's story. He is 62, a hard worker and lover of good people. It is a story of pain and difficult times, that is until now. He was diagnosed with COPD several years ago and using a few types of inhalers and the Dr. wanted him on oxygen. It was a cycle of unending Dr. appointments that kept the Docs paid but no healing for Ralph and he was getting WORSE.
In the mean time we were researching medical cannabis...
Last Monday he had a real bad episode, his diaphram and lungs were spasming so hard, trying to get oxygen in. In Ralph's words "he was just along for the ride" while his body was in survival mode. I thought he was going to die. The spasms stopped but he was very weak and needed help. In desperation I messaged Peter Otoole and him and Joel arrived in the early morning hours, a 300 mile drive.
The effects of the oil were almost immediate, he could feel his body being oxygenated like he had not felt in years. By the
second day he was able to sleep laying in bed rather than sitting in a chair. This is day four and he is regaining physical strength.
We are in awe of this powerful medicine..and the compassion of people willing to help.
Thank so much and please share Ralph's story to help others see what this medicine is capable of. )
This story was shared on my timeline. Hope you enjoy.
