Sindrome de Alicia en el País de las Maravillas

Sindrome de Alicia en el País de las Maravillas

Recientemente, los medios de comunicación nos han sorprendido con la noticia de una niña ourensana de 8 años que durante un mes y medio, sufrió episodios repetidos de distorsión de la imagen corporal, del tamaño de los objetos y las personas circundantes, y alucinaciones, de las que era plenamente consciente mientras las padecía. La pediatra del centro de salud de A Ponte, publicó el caso en la Revista Española de Neurología. El síndrome de Alicia en el País de las Maravillas, que sufre la pequeña, fue descrito en 1955, y se presenta en ciertos tipos de migraña y en epilepsia. Los síntomas forman parte de lo que se denomina aura migrañosa, un conjunto de manifestaciones neurológicas que anteceden al episodio de dolor, aunque éste puede no presentarse.

“Vi a mi padre hacerse tan pequeño como un muñeco”, o “siento que mi cuerpo crece hasta ocupar la habitación entera”, son dos de las sensaciones que refería esta niña de Ourense. Muy parecidas a lo que Lewis Carroll contaba en su libro Alicia en el País de las Maravillas, por lo que se cree que también sufría migrañas.

    taking and if you did any rrseaech at all, you would find plenty of evidence to suggest that cannabis is one of the most HARMLESS substances one can take as a medicine.Basically, you could ingest a pound of high THC cannabis (undstand that Hemp is also cannabis, but with low THC and is a well established dietary supplement) and there would be no lasting side effects. Try that with any other drug on this planet!Now, if you do choose to do some rrseaech, I would caution you to take a close look at where the information is coming from, the level of bias that might be present, and whether or not the information comes from arguments of authority or are scientific.Most organizations that publish anything about cannabis are biased and are supported directly or indirectly by government agencies. The US government has written in law that no agency may publish, support, or fund anything/one that contradicts the notion that cannabis has no medical value. Other governments have no such restrictions, so much of the unbiased studies of cannabis and its effects come from Canada and elsewhere.Another few facts to take into consideration is: 1) cannabis has been used medicinally for thousands of years; 2) there have never been a single reported death caused by cannabis (compare that with alcohol or even aspirin!); 3) cannabis has only been outlawed for the past 60 years and the reasons behind that are hardly scientific by any account.The issue of using cannabis then, is not a moral one, nor one of scientifically proven harmful effects. The issue is, and has been for our generation, one of cultural discrimination and corporate greed. So, when writing an article like this, please be aware, many folks have hidden agendas which must be scrutinized by the truth seeker. Although I could include many links, I will refrain. The truth is out there.
