Allyson's Healing Transformation

Our daughter Allyson was diagnosed with epilepsy after two years of severe headaches. Her medication has caused depression, anxiety, loss of sleep, loss of memory, and challenges her education. She missed a majority of classes in 7th through 9th grade until we got her seizures under control with drugs. Lost time and classwork has severly affected her ability to complete current class work as well as relate to her peers, causing more anxiety and depression. She is not able to get her driving permit due to the seizures. She was clinically diagnosed with cortical dysplasia, which affects her eyesight and ability to read at extended periods. In the past year, she has fought severe depression, anxiety, loss of weight, and other issues due to the drugs prescribed. Mix this with the teenage years and the environment has been challenging to say the least for her and our family.

The recommended clinical treatment is to continue to take drugs and deal with the side effects. We believe a more homeopathic way to healing needs to happen soon. Friends introduced various private practices to help heal Allyson, one of which is in Brazil. This program would be a fully immersive program for two weeks at a minimum. We researched the location and it is safe. We have spoken to friends that have experienced amazing healing results while visiting. We want to go as soon as possible

The funding request allows Allyson and her father to travel to Brazil and pay for family costs while they are gone. We will stay as long as they say is necessary to get healed. This approach will give Allyson a chance to be seizure free, and we believe she will be healed. Our family wants to see her happy, and enjoy the gift of life. We have seen her give up on life many times, and try to take her life.

Update: We are also planning on travelling to the top rated epilepsy clinic in Ohio, and possible the best in the world in France to get multiple opinions on how to proceed. Also, she will undergo testing at Amen Clinic in Orange County. The breakdown on costs:

Brazil (Approx costs $6,500)
Amen Clinic ($3,500)
Ohio ($3,000-$15,000) depending on procedures
France ($4,000-$20,000) depending on procedures

If you have other experiences that could help her condition, please let us know. We have a neurologist, near surgeon, counsellor, healer, and multiple other parties involved, but she now wants to leave them all. We need to get her to Brazil, please help! Thank you.
