Introduction

The Holistic Releaf Wellness and Pain Management Centre is the first of its kind on the African continent.

At the core of our philosophy is the fundamental truth that the best and most affordable healthcare is a universal right. The birth of the centre has its roots in the movement to legalise the hemp crop in South Africa, in order to extract the full potential of this amazing crop and the benefits it has to offer to people, other living organisms and the planet.

The principle focus of the centre is holistic treatment of the body to manage pain and interventions to treat a comprehensive range of illnesses and diseases, drawing on the incredible healing properties of the Cannabis. Exponentially, growing global interest and studies in the medical uses of the cannabis plant has shown that it can be used safely, with zero to minimal negative side effects for a wide range of curative benefits and successful pain management of any severity. Indeed, the global consensus is growing that the hemp crop is in fact a ‘miracle’ plant and we are immensely pleased to be able to finally offer this ‘miracle’ to you.

This is a multiple faceted wellness centre providing strong evidence based natural health care, therapies and medication to optimise the healing and wellbeing of our patients and improve their lives. Our treatment regimens combine traditional medical practices in chiropractics, physiotherapy, diseases and illnesses (acute and chronic) to treat the whole body. The practitioners at this centre are all medical professionals who have thoroughly researched the extensive medical uses of cannabis and have enthusiastically embraced its potential benefits. As such, the centre will dispense the best grade and quality cannabis medication to all patients seeking hope and assistance with whatever health challenges they face.

The marijuana plant contains a type of chemical compound called cannabinoids. This compound is also manufactured by the human body for a variety of purposes including natural pain intervention; nerve conditions, movement control and coordination; regulating the metabolism; protecting the brain against the negative side effects of oxidation and boosting the immune system. In addition, there are numerous studies and accounts of cannabis reversing the effects of and in many cases also destroying cancer cells and tumours. The controlled and guided use of cannabinoids therefore has the potential to help those suffering from a variety of illnesses to manage the side effects while helping the body to recover.
