Meet Brett: Cannabis & Cancer | Real Stories, From Real People

Posted by Team GroBox on

Imagine running more than a dozen companies during the prime of your life until one day…. Your health takes a toll on you.

Meet Brett.This is his story.

"Hi, I’m Brett Clements. I’m 57. Married. No kids. Living on Queensland’s Gold Coast.

I’m a Murdoch trained journalist. A creative. Writer. Editor. Cinematographer. And founder of a software company called Showcache  which will be launching soon and Platinumhd.

At one point I had over 17 franchisees, but the pressure was absolutely grinding. Eight hours a day solving other people’s dramas. So, on November 25, 2016, I decided to shut most of the inter-state and overseas offices down.

It was a very painful time.

I think that single event sparked the cancer. From research, the experts point to one event. A loss. An upheaval. Something that totally overwhelms your immune system.”

Can you share you share your medical condition, how did it start?

“In January, 2017, I noticed some blood in my feces. So I went to my local GP and he said it was probably just hemorrhoids. I went and had a few blood tests. All came back negative.

IIn Australia, when you turn 50, they also send you a stool test for bowel cancer screening, which also came up negative. The bleeding persisted and I went back to the GP three times. More blood tests. The fourth time I requested a colonoscopy. On November 27, 2017, I’d just come out of the general anaesthetic when a surgeon - in green gown and green cap - scampered up and said:

“Bad news. You have bowel cancer. Lower rectum. You’ll be wearing a colostomy bag for the rest of your life. We need to do some CT scans to see if it hasn’t spread to your liver or your lungs.” And then he was off.

It had been a busy day. They say 1 in 14 Australians will get bowel cancer. They’d performed 18 colonoscopies that day. And my number came up.

Treatment was 24 sessions of radiation at 200 rads a treatment. Plus chemo ‘on the go’. I had a port in my chest and the pump in my pocket. I went through the radiation without a hitch. But they had to pull me off the chemo after three weeks as it was poisoning me.”

When did your encounter with cannabis oil start? Was it a recommendation from a friend? Through research?

“After about three weeks of treatment, I was finding it uncomfortable making excuses for having to be somewhere (radiation/treatment) so I decided to post my condition on Facebook.

Three friends immediately reached out -Garry, Eric and Dean - and said you’ve got to use cannabis oil. Eric “If I were you, I’d get a bottle of that stuff and….” Well. You get the drift.

Several people had also mentioned cannabis oil to my wife. It is illegal in Queensland but the NSW border is only about 20 minutes away. During radiation, you get quite badly burnt. And that burn takes about six to ten weeks to heal. So I asked my radiologist and my oncologist if using cannabis oil would adversely affect my treatment. Both said it would be complementary.

I tried the oil and it just wiped me out. I was a zombie. So I replaced that with cannabis oil suppositories. No head high. I took two every day for the ten weeks leading up to a second colonoscopy I’d requested. Normally, they do not do a visual inspection and there’s no imaging technology available today (I’ve been told) that can see through post-radiation. My surgeon agreed to go in and have a look - and scheduled it for April 4. In his words: “Great news. The radiation has worked wonders, and I don’t need to remove your annus. There’s something still there, just beneath the surface. Like the indent on the surface of your finger. If you were 81, I wouldn’t operate. But let’s go in there and get it out just to be sure.”

Was using cannabis your last resort?

“No. I did a lot of reading and hit it with everything. De-toxified the house. Berkey water filter. Bought the www.chriscuredcancer.com box set. Stopped eating anything in a box.

Said NO to a whole a lot of productions from high maintenance people. Started transcendental meditation again. I wanted to mix modern medicine with everything else.

And stayed positive. I lean towards buddhism however my sister is a Christian and she fired up the prayer groups. So I had a lot of people sending me positive energy and reinforcements.”

Have you had any difficulty acquiring cannabis oil or cannabis in the past? Any challenges?

“None. And while it is illegal in Queensland, I can’t see the police rushing out to book cancer patients.”

Do you have any regimen that you follow that you like to share?

“24 carrots. 8 apples. celery. kale. And beetroot. Juiced. And two knobs of garlic per-day. Don’t eat anything in a box. No processed meat or food. And I meditate after reading in the evening. I’d recommend chriscuredcancer.com. Most of what I do is based around Chris’ teachings.”

What is your advice to those using cannabis oil and those that are hesitant to use it?

Do it. There’s already calls for the de-esculation of chemotherapy, even amongst medical circles. I believe cannabis will play a major role in treatment in the future. If you’re worried about the head high. Use suppositories.”

How did using cannabis oil change your life?

“I suggest it probably saved it. I’ve still got two weeks before the operation so I intend to keep smashing it. My hope is when they open me up, there’s nothing to find.

I see this time of my life as a gift. I’m kinder. I stop and listen to people. I care more. And I was just humbled at the support from friends and family.

It’s a life change. But it obviously needed changing.”

    My operation was a success. They found a microscopic cancer cell under what a as left of the tumour. Surgeon said they can find no other signs. It will always be in the back of my mind. Here’s looking forward to the rest of my life. Thanks guys.

    I am a cancer survivor because of CBD. I had breast cancer (stage 4) and I don’t know how will I be cured but this friend of mine told me to try the CBD, at first I did not believe because my doctor doesn’t allow me to take some cannabis as a medicine and this is a fake medicinal treatment. But I read this https://www.worldwide-marijuana-seeds.com/blogs/marijuana-news/cannabis-as-medicine that it really helps others that’s why I tried it but I did not tell my doctor about it. So I take this for 11 months and it really helps me a lot. I know that others won’t believe me but trust me it really does.
