At TeleGreen Medical, we’re keen to help patients to ease pain and improve quality of life.
We’re excited by the potential of plant-based therapies. This is an emerging field and we’re fascinated by what we’re learning so far.
Pain triggers a number of other difficulties, including problems with sleep and mood. And it’s hard to treat.
Conventional treatments work well for some patients – but not for all. Some people find that their pain persists or that the side effects of conventional treatments become intolerable.
Dr Cai is an authorised prescriber of medicinal cannabis and a highly respected and experienced GP.
People often think that they need to give me the hard sell about how much pain they’re in, but I’m an experienced doctor – I can usually see what they’re going through and I know it’s hard. Plant-based therapies can be a way forward for some patients who feel stuck with pain.
Dr Danny Cai
Students struggling with chronic conditions or mental health difficulties were open to unconventional treatments and would request plant-based therapies. As academics they would often have investigated the available evidence and were keen to find out about access to the medication.
After all, the treatments we use on a regular basis now were once new. Many were also adapted and repurposed. And a very high percentage are derived from plants.
Dr Cai takes a balanced approach to the use of plant-based therapies, guided by the evidence and complying with the TGA’s regulations for usage. As an authorised prescriber, he is able to provide timely access to plant-based therapies for eligible patients. He selects from many different types and brands, guided by your best interests only.
He’s keen to help patients to improve quality of life and to help both patients and doctors to understand the potential benefits of plant-based therapies and the related risks.
