How Resilience Medicine Began

Our Founder, Dr Dani Gordon created the Resilience Medicine system based on a decade + experience treating thousands of patients with integrative medicine (IM) and medical cannabis (MC).

Early in her medical practice in Canada she specialised in long term chronic conditions and found most patients improved significantly more when integrative programs including diet, nutraceuticals and mindbody approaches were added to drug therapy.

After adding medical cannabis (MC) to her practice, she found even her most difficult to treat patients experienced dramatically improved quality of life and relief from symptoms. Significantly, they were more able to engage with their integrative programs, often with life changing results.

Cannabis Dramatically improves Quality Of Life

Many MC patients see positive changes within days, but often 3-6 months of adjustments such as strain, ratio, form, dose & timing can be needed to maximise treatment effect, especially for complex or sensitive patients.

Without this adjustment process, many patients can stop treatment prematurely believing MC was just ‘another treatment that didn’t work for me’ when a huge improvement in their quality of life was possible

Most chronic health patients have multiple symptom clusters that interrelate and respond effectively to MC but do not fit just one diagnosis or medical speciality. Standard narrowly focused assessment tools do not accurately capture these more global changes in symptoms.

Dr Gordon developed Resilience Medicine to address these problems.

 

Using Data To Personalise Treatment

Resilience Medicine uses integrative treatment options alongside medications and medical cannabis and uses proprietary assessment data protocols throughout the treatment process to fully capture specific functional wellbeing and symptom domains. This improves medical treatment by allowing us to:

  1. Start initial protocols based on personalised data signatures, not just simple broad diagnoses criteria.
  2. Longitudinally track detailed patient responses to treatment, allowing for more effective protocol adjustments.
  3. Consider more specific treatment or testing options based on a more complete data picture.

We are Part of T21

Resilience Medicine Clinics, as part of our commitment to real world evidence research is participating in Project Twenty21, the largest observational medical cannabis research project in Europe. The value of real world evidence (RWE) to assess the effectiveness of medical cannabis is increasingly being recognised by the mainstream medical and research community, since cannabis medicines contain multiple active ingredients in one medicine and treat multiple symptoms at one time, making traditional RCT (randomised placebo controlled trials) more difficult. T21 aims to add to this valuable RWE base so that the lack of perceived evidence, a major barrier to having medical cannabis available on the NHS, may be addressed. You do not have to participate in T21 to be seen as a medical cannabis patient, it is completely up to you. If you do wish to become a T21 medical cannabis patient please let us know at the time of booking your first visit with us.
