How Cannabis may help Hana

Until very recently non-psychoactive cannabis oil, CBD oil, was completely illegal here in Australia and you couldn’t get hold of it via any ‘official’ means.

‘Cancer cured by Imaginary Chemo’ 1# Medical Miracle Series

  Did you know that Medical Miracles happen all the time? Why don’t we hear of them in the news?  Is it because mainstream science can’t explain them and therefore such amazing stories of hope aren’t covered in case they appear woo-woo? Or is it because good news doesn’t sell? The lack of sharing of these…

When Hana woke up from her surgery with a damaged brain my first thought and only instruction to myself was “FIX IT. And don’t rest until you do.” You know the story. I spent 2.5 years trying to FIX IT  – I was prepared to fight to fix it until the day I died. And…

Just over two years has passed since the incredible day it ‘clicked’ that not only was Oxytocin missing from Hana’s medication regime (and, at the time – in my opinion -in the regime of every single Panhypopit patient in the WORLD) but that she NEEDED it and MUST have it. To my surprise, my initial…

EDITED: I secretly thought I was going blind…- my diagnosis with ‘Visual Snow’

***UPDATE November 2016:  After a spiritual awakening earlier this year and increased intuitive and psychic abilities I can now say that I personally do not have a medical issue but that I simply ‘see’ the world differently. One of my teachers has suggested that it is ‘energy’ that I am seeing and I agree with…

This update is loooong overdue! Sorry about that, but if you’ve been following my Facebook page you’ll know that life for my little Brain Tumour survivor, Hana (- and us!)  has been pretty tricky recently. The ups and downs have really taken it out of me, feeling just a tad faded and jaded… The Earlier…

For now I wanted to update you on Hana’s obesity and where we are at with our own investigations and interventions. Hana Now My little girl…

Could Oxytocin Therapy reduce Obsessive Behaviour in Brain Tumour Survivors?

A few days after the first part of our Oxytocin trial ended (read this to find out what happened!), I noticed something: Oxytocin reduced some of Hana’s obsessional behaviours, but it was only once these behaviours returned that I attributed this to the Oxytocin: Pens: Counting and Colour Coding Shortly after my daughter had her…
