Stellate Ganglion Blockade

Hot Flashes and Night Sweats

Hot flashes and sleep disturbances are a common and often severe side effect of drugs used to treat and prevent breast cancer, including tamoxifen and aromatase inhibitors. Estrogen is the best way to relieve hot flashes, but it can fuel breast cancer growth, so women who've had breast cancer or are at increased risk for it should usually avoid hormone therapy. Other options — less effective and with side effects of their own — include herbal therapies and prescription medications such as antidepressants and the anti-epileptic drug gabapentin. Now, in a small pilot study of breast cancer survivors, researchers have found they can nearly eliminate severe hot flashes and nighttime awakenings, with virtually no side effects, by anesthetizing certain nerves in the neck — a procedure called stellate ganglion blockade (SGB).

The Many Health Benefits It Offers

Cannabidiol

CBD has the strongest scientific evidence is for its effectiveness in treating some of the cruelest childhood epilepsy syndromes, such as Dravet syndrome and Lennox-Gastaut syndrome (LGS), which typically don’t respond to anti-seizure medications. In numerous studies, CBD was able to reduce the number of seizures, and in some cases it was able to stop them altogether. Videos of the effects of CBD on these children and their seizures are readily available on the Internet for viewing, and they are quite striking. CBD is commonly used to address anxiety, and for patients who suffer through the misery of insomnia, studies suggest that CBD may help with both falling asleep and staying asleep.
CBD may offer an option for treating different types of chronic pain and inflammation due to arthritis. Another study demonstrated the mechanism by which CBD inhibits inflammatory and neuropathic pain, two of the most difficult types of chronic pain to treat.
