Treating Yourself Magazine Issue #9 Hits News Stands
TORONTO, ONTARIO- "Treating Yourself - The Alternative Medicine Journal," that provides medical marijuana users with information to assist them in responsible use announces the release of its ninth issue.
"I'm delighted with issue number nine. In just two years of publishing this journal and building http://www.treatingyourself.com the growth and quality of content and readers is phenomenal. It's something we're all incredibly proud of," said Publisher, Marco Renda.
Highlights in the latest issue include:
- A behind-the-scenes look as Willie Nelson parks his B100 biodiesel-powered tour bus to break ground at the super-sizing of Oregon's first commercial biodiesel plant.
- Meet "An Incredible Wo(Man)" Jason Ryde, AKA, "Barbie." Artist, Drag Queen and HIV positive for 20-years, this ultimate survivor continues to cope through the medicinal benefits of marijuana.
- An introduction to Iridology, a branch of alternative medicine that involves diagnosis of one's state of health by specific colors, marks, and signs that are seen in the iris of the eyes.
"This is - without a doubt - our best issue ever and the timing couldn't be better as it coincides with the appointment of Michelle Rainey as Director of Sales and Marketing for Treating Yourself," said Renda.
Rainey is licensed by Health Canada to use marijuana for medicinal purposes and is facing extradition to the United States. At 17, she was diagnosed with Crohn's Disease and endured constant pain despite surgeries and cocktails of prescription drugs until she discovered the pain relieving properties of marijuana. Not only did it stop her nausea, but it soothed so many of her other symptoms that she was able to take herself off every prescribed medication she was taking. As a walking example of the benefits of medical marijuana, Michelle quit her successful banking career and helped found the British Columbia Marijuana Party and the BCMP Bookstore. In July 2005, despite the fact that Michelle is licensed to grow her own medicinal marijuana by Health Canada, she and two other Canadians were charged with conspiring to distribute marijuana and marijuana seeds and money-laundering and are facing possible life sentences in a US federal prison.
Marco Renda is the Publisher and Editor-in-Chief of "Treating Yourself -The Alternative Medicine Journal" and the founder of http://www.treatingyourself.com, the largest medical marijuana forum on the Internet receiving over four million hits per month and rated number one on Yahooka.com.
