I just wanted to share that I was working at a marijuana dispensary earlier this year and I had a woman come in to buy an 18:1 CBD:THC tincture for her grandmother who struggled with dementia. She said that they accidentally discovered that mixing the tincture with melatonin supplements brought her back to the present moment and a study is now being done at UCLA on this combination with her grandmother. One of the most impactful stories I experienced while working there.
Hi friends, I am no longer at the shop or in the city so I don’t know the progress on the study. This was back in April so I don’t think they will be finding or publishing anything for a while. Sorry I cannot give more info but there should already be studies on CBD and it’s use for dementia.
I’m really needing this episode! My brain can’t handle all this incredible information – I bet there’s an herb for that too! Anyone else excited for this???!
It would be helpful if when they are speaking, that the herb is written for those who have difficulty hearing the different accents.

Most wonderful hour! I keep thinking of a beloved brother with dementia and a cousin with Parkinson’s and how much some of this information would help both of them. Simply amazing information!
It’s too bad there is not a “scaled-down” ownership option, like one that would be just the transccripts for, say, $40, for people tht cannot afford $200 for each of these natural healing docuseries. I’m 72, on a fixed income. A lot of this info is helpful. OTH, I can go out and buy a heck of a lot of herbal books (or one of the other topics for which there has been a docuseries) for $179. I’d rather have a book or transcripts, anyway — little time to sit through 2-hour vids. Seems the authors would make money on this. They’d sell a far larger number.
try the Canadian currency conversion – I too am as a fixed income senior on a fixed income and cut corners like heat with wood just to stay at an arffordable level to have some comfort – can’t really afford hydro or even great docuseries like this – would be great to get libraries to buy in so we could access them
Nick, are you going to share your migrane healing story. My daugher has horrible migraines. I would love to know what your protocol was. I understand everyone is different. She is seeing a neurologist in a week or so. Is there a book or a resouce you could you can recommend?
Tieraona Low Dog, I can’t agree with you more regarding your comments about the thinning of the veil as someone nears their passing. I watch my parents – my mother especially – experience contacts with family and friends that are already in spirit.

I too experienced something similar with m mother and her approaching death (the day before 9-11-01). A dominican nun and counselor, suggested that the seeming ‘dilerium’ exhibited, is more likely, conversations beyond the veil; For me, this was most comforting and enlightening. Hearing Tieraona Low Dog’s reference, further confirmed this possibility for me.

As I’ve had Peripheral Neuropathy for 19 years which is now spreading up my legs and in my hands and arms, as well as two of my four grown chidren (now in their fifties) have relapsing, remitting multiple sclerosis, I found this Episode unbelievably interesting and will be ordering the Series after I stop typing. Thank you so much. (9/8/2018)
Sometimes MS is one of the presentations of Lyme disease, a bacterial infection. The Lyme spirochetal bacteria attack lipids, which is what the brain and nerves are made of. You can discuss your symptoms at www lymenet org and people will discuss with you whether they think you’re in the ballpark for Lyme.
Fatigue is one of the first symptoms of Lyme disease.
Fatigue is one of the first symptoms of Lyme disease.
I was diagnosed with peripheral neuropathy too and after many tests and doctors, was told it is a common symptom of pesticide exposure as I worked for a lawn chemical manufacturer. Not direct or acute exposure but long term low dose accumulation. Something to look into! I was told it can be reversed thru detoxification but also learned that needs to be a slow and gentle process or you can do more damage.
At the you go to fast and I need help with spelling the herbs. Really enjoy presentation. Learning a lot for an old gal. Sheila Davies
My daughter has autism and has not spoken her whole life, is there a way u can put me in touch with the Ayurvedic physician? And wheres the best place I can buy herbs in California? I only came here a few months ago and I don’t know where to buy herbs. I’ve not seen them anywhere..
I would love to know if Gotu Kola will help heal my brain. Three years ago I had a serious bicycle accident. In addition to multiple titanium implants to fix my broken body and face, I also suffered traumatic brain injury and damage to the 3rd and 6th neuro optic nerves so my eyes don’t work together. After listening to this episode I’m hoping that Gotu Kola will help heal my brain. I eat a nutrient rich vegan diet with no wheat, sugar or any other sweetener and all organic non-gmo. THANK YOU for sharing all this valuable information.
Great info. Very helpful info for MS. Was hopeful there would be something more, or new for Alzheimers. I so wish I could help my mother 😔
Casey Tramp So far the only coherent and cogent comment on this thread. Yes, Bredesen does have some very useful information, note what he mentions in one of his interviews about ‘TELOMARES’ – this is the key. Some cells produce telomarase and some don’t. There is a supplement that you can take to reinstate telomares on the DNA strands and increase not only longevity but restore brain function, which is basically the same. Dr Bredesen is working on this now, but if you want to buy this thing it can be got from the peptide store in Russia. Among other things. Here is the link to their page on thes: https://www.peptidesstore.com/…/natu…/products/endoluten …. they also have a lot of other supplements that do what you might think as miracles. NO!. I do not work for them. I just have identified things that video series like this one cannot because it is just a means of stroking you all off. Cheers and away now. Wake up you Yanks!!!!!!!!!
You mentioned that you had ocular migraines. On occasion, I experience these and would like to know what herbal remedies you used to eliminate them. Opthalmologists I’ve seen don’t indicate these are serious. What is your opinion, please?
I also get ocular migraines, but without the migraine- just the sparkling that starts out in the middle of my vision (and have trouble seeing) that slowly gets larger and looks like an arrow until it gets to the outer side of my eye, then disappears. Usually my eye then feels a little odd for a while.
Lisa Ganora is very knowledgeable and I don’t see here named in the list of the experts. I’m a curious why sometimes gotu kola, centella, is sometimes shown as a whole radial leaf opposed to an open leaf form that Jenna was holding on Kauai Farmacy. I follow Doug and Jenna of Kauai Farmacy and their products on their website and videos, and have noticed the gotu kola they usually show at the farm s the full radial large leaf type. I have both in my garden. I wild crafted to larger leaf after viewing it on there farm. I live in Florida like Jenna mentioned it grows wild.
I watch all the docuseries that come my way on a variety of subjects. I have never purchased any of them. I want to own this, outstanding presentations and information. I would like to know which brand of herbal remedies these experts recommend. There are a lot manufactures. I would appreciate some guidance on several formulations or brands they use. Thank you!

I was just sitting outside, sipping my morning Irish breakfast tea (to which I added 15 minute simmered chaga to today 😉) and my sandstone patio is surrounded by wild violet greens. I could not help but notice that wild violet leaves look like gotu kola leaves.
I don’t see the spelling of the herbs after each episode. Are there herbalists or integrative doctors in South Africa that do work like the wonderful doctors etc on the show
Great episode! I’ve been diagnosed with MS and i have horrible reactions to many foods. I often have wondered if they misdiagnosed me….
Learning about all the herbs you bring to light in this truly wonderful series begs the question…can I just go to Amazon and order them or should I find a local herbalist? My first thought is to order them from Amazon but want your opinion on this Nick. Māhalo!
