Marly's Mission; defying gravity

Raised by 6 people in 7 months
Marly’s had Lyme disease for 4 years and it’s drastically changed her once so active life. She was a physiotherapist, played hockey and was working on getting her masters degree. Now her days are spent mostly on the couch watching Netflix. And however that's fun for a day, it's not what you want as your daily life as a 28 year old.

Marly’s been treated successfully for Lyme, but her autonomic nervous system is damaged and not functioning properly as a result. This causes orthostatic intolerance; she’s ‘allergic’ to gravity. Her body does not respond well to postural changes and this causes low bloodpressure, syncope and other debilitating symptoms. This results in Marly being unable to work, wheelchair bound and basically being unable to live her normal life. Her life has been on hold for 4 years and even though Lyme is in remission, she’s not nearly cured.

As a last attempt to improve her illness and symptoms she wants to do a special rehabilitation program (NeuroPhysics) that focuses on rewiring the nervous system. The results in other patients are promising and it’s the only treatment left to try. The therapy is in Australia and is not covered by insurance. We need €10000 to make this treatment possible.

What is NeuroPhysics Therapy
NeuroPhysics Therapy is a specific kind of exercise therapy, discovered by Ken Ware, that triggers the body's natural repair processes through light resistance training. It focuses on the whole body and not just on isolated issues.  NeuroPhysics Therapy stimulates the nervous system to find new/differents paths of communicating.
Marly hopes this will be the final push her body needs to heal.
Please donate and help Marly get back her life.
