Carol L. Roberts MD. The scientific dope on dope! Marijuana, it’s history, medical application, and controversies. Who should use it and exactly how. What combination of its components, THC and CBD, work best, and why? Dr. Roberts graduated as a medical doctor from Harvard University. Roberts began her career as an ENT surgeon who started to question why many patients did not get permanently well. After giving up surgery for ten years of emergency medicine, Dr. Roberts became a functional medicine physician. She elucidates why she left straight medicine to get a larger doctor’s bag. She opened up a large office in a home and had at one time a staff of almost fifty employees. She had her own radio show and ran grand rounds at a medical school (where she kindly invited Berkson one year). Roberts eventually practiced in tandem with the well-recognized neurologist, Dr. Perlmutter (Author of Grain Brain).
Dr. Roberts is fiercely smart, science-based and now puts her laser-focus on the clinical applications of marijuana. She highlights its use for chronic cases that historically have not had many or any answers. Examples are severe chronic pain, essential tremors, insomnia, neurodegenerative diseases and even some terminal cases of cancer.
Roberts gives a detailed history of this herb. Did you know our founding fathers grew hemp and used it as paper for some of our earlier famous written laws? Dr. Roberts goes into dosages and diverse delivery routes. She shares case histories of application for tremors, anxiety and even shares a case study of a lung cancer patient who was dying and now is in healthy remission.
This is a show that will have you never pondering “Mary Jane” in the same way again. Roberts also touches on post head trauma, how to minimize consequential deficiencies, epilepsy and much more.
Dr. Robert’s sees patients at The Hughes Center for Functional Medicine in Naples, Florida. She and Berkson are riverboat buddies. Both docs download lots of learning about this shocking form of herbal medicine, so be prepared to have a larger brain.
