Depression and anxiety: Ancient natural therapies are now cutting-edge cures
Using the healing power of plants, modern-day researchers are having success in the treatment of a variety of neurological conditions including depression, anxiety, autism, and multiple sclerosis, says author and internationally-known medicinal plant expert, Dr. Cass Ingram.
“Two categories of organic chemical compounds — terpenes and cannabinoids — found naturally occurring in wild aromatic plants, have been used for thousands of years to promote the healing and well-being of the human nervous system, and their effectiveness is now being rediscovered,” says Dr. Ingram.
Dr. Ingram says extracts derived from the following plants are being successfully used to restore healthy function to neurons and hormone receptor sites in the body’s neurological pathways:
hemp, wild rosemary, wild oregano, black pepper, clove buds, hops,
holy basil, celery, carrots, regular parsley, Italian parsley, wild sage,
Italian parsley root, lime, cinnamon
NATURAL HEALING PROTOCOLS:
1. Chronic depression
While herbs like basil, wild oregano, wild rosemary, wild sage, and hops have a long history as a treatment for mental diseases, extract of hemp, with its high cannabinoid content, has a reputation as one of the most effective treatments for lifting mood. Depression can be treated by activating the nervous system’s cannabinoid receptor sites through consumption of a CO2 processed hemp and wild oregano oil, five or more drops twice daily; Use hemp seeds on foods or in cooking; take one or two tablespoonful of organic, cold-pressed hemp seed oil daily. If available, consume the raw, unprocessed, cold-pressed hemp juice, a half ounce daily. (See additionally recommended nutrients on page 152 of The Cannabis Cure, by Dr. Cass Ingram)
To treat anxiety-related conditions take the raw CO2-extracted hemp-wild oregano complex, five or more drops under the tongue as often as necessary. Take it also a half hour or so before bedtime to relax. Additionally, consume the aromatic essence of neurologically balancing spice and flower extracts, one ounce or so twice daily. For B vitamin support take a whole food B complex powder, two tablespoonful every morning in juice or water. Avoid the consumption of refined sugar as well as wheat and rye.

3. Multiple sclerosis
Multiple sclerosis is associated with infectious plaques found on the nerve sheaths and other brain substance. If the infection is purged, then the patient can often recover completely. Both wild oregano and hemp boost the internal production of glutathione, a crucial enzyme for the prevention of brain cell degeneration. To treat this condition take the hemp-wild oregano complex as sublingual drops, ten drops under the tongue two or more times daily. Also, in the event of heavy metal overload or chemical toxicity take the total body purging agent, one ounce or more daily for at least one month. Consume also the juice of wild oregano, one ounce or more daily, along with the desiccated spice complex, two capsules twice daily. If swallowing is difficult, use wild multiple spice drops, twenty drops two or three times daily. Take also the organic, cold-pressed hemp seed oil, one ounce twice daily. The aromatic essence of wild oregano, wild sage, wild rosemary, plus rose and orange blossom may prove invaluable, an ounce twice daily. The consumption of wild chaga-birch bark tea is advised, a well as the total body purging agent, an ounce daily. (For more, read The Cannabis Cure by Dr. Cass Ingram)
There can be no better treatment for autism than the combination of crude extract of hemp plus whole food, raw wild oregano extract. Both these raw herbal extracts act directly on those key brain tissue receptor sites, the endocannabinoid receptors. Beta caryophyllene is particularly potent in activating the nerve-balancing receptor sites, which is found in both hemp and wild oregano extract in dense amounts. To treat this condition take the hemp-wild oregano complex, five to ten drops under the tongue two or more times daily. The hemp-wild oregano combination may also be rubbed up-and down the spine also on the bottom of the feet.
“Extracts from hemp, oregano, and other aromatic plants are also producing improvements in other neurological conditions such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, epilepsy, memory loss, and PTSD,” says Dr. Ingram.
