Elias Cooper Story: Treating Leukemia With Cannabis Oil
By: Lincoln Horsley
This is Elias Cooper's story. In 2011 Elias was diagnosed with chronic lymphoid leukemia (CLL). When he was originally diagnosed his doctor mentioned chemotherapy as a treatment option. That did not sit well with Elias. He doesn't like taking Rx medications and he was scared of the thought of chemotherapy.
By January 2013 Elias's condition had advanced so far that chemo was the option Elias's doctor left him with. Since Elias was opposed to chemo his wife, Debra Cooper, went online and started to look for alternative treatments for her husbands condition. Thank God for that decision because it is what has saved his life.
Debras research guided her to "Brave" Mykayla, the 8 year old who is using cannabis oil to treat her leukemia. Mykayla is one of the youngest medical marijuana patients in the US and has had great results using cannabis oil to treat her leukemia. Mykayla and her family have been on many TV news segments and shows sharing her story. Elias and Debra were very impressed at the results shown by Mykayla. They were so impressed that they decided to get Elias his medical marijuana card so he to could try cannabis oil.
When Elias finally had his medical marijuana card his wife again turned to the internet to find how to make cannabis oil. Her search for directions to make cannabis oil landed her here, cureyourowncancer.org, on the make the oil page. They followed the instructions here on the site to make Elias's oil and got him started on it right away. He took his first dose of cannabis oil on February 3rd 2013. Elias ingested the oil ever day for about 3 weeks before he went back to the doctor for a checkup. That checkup showed his white blood cell count was down 40,000.
Once on the cannabis oil Elias experienced the normal side effects of the oil treatment. While on the oil Elias was tired during the day and didn't have a lot of energy. He wanted to sleep a lot and didn't want to get out of bed. Those are common side effects of the oil and usually after the first 4-5 weeks those side effects start to diminish. That is exactly what Elias experienced. After about 5 weeks on the oil his day time tiredness started to go away. After 6 weeks on the oil Elias was able to take over 1 gram each day and feel no effects. He is now able to live his life normally, like before he began the cannabis oil treatment.
Elias and Debra keep close track of all of Elias's oil and what cannabis is used to make it. Making sure Elias has high quality oil made from certain cannabis strains is important. Elias has found that oil made from cannabis indica strains high in THC work much better to treat his leukemia than those oils low in THC and higher in CBD.
There have been 2 times though that Elias has been without his oil. During a time when his finances were tight he tired to use a different type of hemp oil called RSHO (Real Scientific Hemp Oil), a cheaper oil that is not ideal for treating cancer. RSHO is not the same as the cannabis oil extracted from the actual cannabis buds. RSHO is oil made from hemp. While RSHO has applications like being used for inflammation it is not an ideal choice for internal cancers like leukemia. Elias's choice to take RSHO ended up being a big mistake and his condition worsened because of it. Instead of lowing his white blood cell count, his white blood cell count sky rocketed. When his condition got worse Elias and Debra got the funds together and again made Elias his cannabis oil using high grade cannabis and followed the directions here on this site. After 5 days of being back on the high grade cannabis oil he had blood work done and his white blood cells count was down 65,000 which was amazing.
Over the 10 months that Elias has been taking cannabis oil for his leukemia he has had great results and his condition is improving. By taking cannabis oil instead of chemotherapy Elias has been able to keep the quality of life he had before his leukemia. Elias is a husband and a father so it's great that he has been able to stay involved in all of his family members lives. I am very glad that cureyourowncancer.org has been able to make a difference for Elias and his family.
