My brother’s granddaughter, my great niece, sweet Hannah, was on her way home from a birthday party a week ago Saturday evening, November 24, when the car lost control as they hit a wash, spun out & hit another car head on. Hannah & another  girl are both in very serious condition with head injuries & more plus both are in comas. Your prayers in their behalf at this time would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you to all of my Facebook friends & followers for your prayers & support for Hannah which have poured in non-stop all week after her terrible accident resulting in very traumatic brain injury! And thank you for also sharing our prayer request with so many! I firmly believe in the power of your prayers!

I want to share this documentary with you by Dr. Sanjay Gupta, the Neurosurgeon from CNN, so that if anything like this happens to one of your loved ones you will be aware of this option available to you that the doctors may not yet be aware of since it tends to take so very long for information on new treatments to make it out to the masses.

In 2002 I attended a conference at the National Institutes of Hralth in DC for doctors from around the world who were there to present their research on using Omega 3 oils as a cure for everything from ADHD to PMS to Depression (including Postpartum) to Bipolar Disorder & Schizophrenia. It was a very eye-opening conference with amazing cutting edge research & astounding results being shared! One of the very important points made there was that Omega 3, no matter if it was fish oil or flax oil derived Omega 3, produced similar benefits. They explained that more research on the fish derived Omega 3 existed because that industry had the money to fund the research.

This special documentary is on the case of Grant Virgin, a teen who suffered a very serious head injury after being hit by a car. Although his doctors felt he had no hope of recovery & recommended that his parents pull the plug on their son, he had an amazing total recovery using high doses of Omega 3 oil. It is unbelievable that the doctors gave this boy no hope & were ready to pull the plug on him! He was only one year older than Hannah! Yet with this Omega 3 treatment, which the boy’s parents fought hard to get doctors to try, although they were being given NO HOPE at all for his recovery, it was only two days after they began treatment with Omega 3 oils that his brain function was restored to the point of him making a call to his mother! He has since made a complete recovery. 

I did an hour or two interview for CNN with Dr. Gupta about 2003 & just recently made another connection on a different issue he & I are both working on. So, I can tell you from personal contact with him that he is a very brilliant & inquisitive physician who is still open to learning – a trait sadly missing in so many physicians today who believe they already know everything.

Someone, who knew the mother of the boy in the video above, contacted me to let me know about Grant’s miraculous story & shared the mother’s website with a video of how bad he was before they were able to turn him around with the Omega 3’s.  Below find a link to Grant’s Mothers website Click here

And Yet Another Report of a Miraculous Recovery

I also include the following report that came in yesterday as a comment on the post about Hannah from someone who was unaware that I knew anything about this treatment & wanted to share her own family’s experience with Omega 3s being used in a serious brain injury her own niece suffered…

“I am so sorry, unfortunately, I know firsthand how devastating this can be as it happened to my niece when she was crossing the street. When she was transferred to a long-term facility to try and wean her off the ventilator they gave her extremely high doses of Omega 3s in her feeding tube to assist the brain’s healing. She is now recovered so this could be a treatment for you to listen keep in mind. Definitely ask about trials and the omega 3s. They told my sister her daughter would likely not survive and she is doing amazing! Sending positive thoughts, love and healing.” … Lisa Kenar  

And yet another miraculous report after 0 brain function

“My son is also a miracle story on recovery from TBI (Traumatic Brain Injury). He arrived at the hospital with no brain function, so we definitely know the power of Prayer. He is not fully recovered like those featured here, but 16 years out from his accident, we are using a product high in omega-3 oils. We don’t have access to Mega doses of Omega-3s. In the past 2 years he has progressed from a three-year-old level 2 almost a 9-year level. This is much more progress than in the 14 years previous!”

                                                            … Maryann Radke Marshall​​

Grant’s Mother’s Website

The family says that progress would not be happening if they had merely accepted what conventional medicine told them.”I think one of the saddest things is to get to a place and have someone tell you, ‘You should just let your son die,’ and you don’t have the information to make the right decision,” said JJ Virgin.

“There is such hopelessness about brain injury and there shouldn’t be.”

That rampant hopelessness when it comes to traumatic brain injury is fueling a push by Bailes and Sears to do further studies about omega-3….The Virgin family, based on their own dramatic experience, is sure that omega-3 will do for others what it did for their son.

“OK, what if it didn’t do anything?” said John Virgin. “It certainly couldn’t hurt, but what if you have this kind of result?”

CNN: Teen in coma from severe brain injury recovers with alternatives

Grant Virgin (16), Given Up for Dead by Doctors

Luckily His Parents Did Not Give Up!

Thanks to my son for sharing this story and video from my most favorite of all medical investigative journalists, Dr. Sanjay Gupta, from CNN! One of the most open, honest and sincerely questioning interviews I ever did on the subject of antidepressants and children was done by Dr. Sanjay Gupta. He has a very open mind and is clearly searching for truth in all areas to help others. Please see the video and story airing tonight and tomorrow on CNN with Dr. Gupta in the link below. DO NOT MISS THIS INSPIRING VIDEO AND NEWS REPORT! It is well worth reading and watching!!!

Do antidepressants and other psychiatric meds cause brain damage?

And if so, what do we do about it?

Because in May I testified before the Danish Parliament on the issue of brain damage being caused by the use of antidepressants, I believe anything to help us learn more about recovering from brain damage is critical. Anyone interested in these medications and how they affect themselves as patients or their loved ones on the medications should be hyper vigilant when it comes to this issue.

Hyperbaric Oxygen Treatments

Hyperbaric oxygen is another absolutely incredible treatment for brain injury. If you go to our website and click the links on Dr. Paul Harch you can see before and after brain scans of those who have used hyperbaric oxygen. That link can be found in alternative treatment #7 at

Essential Aromatherapy Oils

What did Princess Di use to ward off some of the adverse effects of her Prozac? She used essential aromatherapy oils. And this CNN story featuring a young man given up for dead after a tragic hit and run accident and slipping into a coma reminds me so much of my friend Connie Bertoldo’s son when she was told that IF he did recover he would only be a vegetable after his traumatic brain injury from a 4 wheeler flipping and landing on top of him.

When Connie called for help wanting to know what oils would help, I rushed to the hospital with all the Young Living oils I knew would help with brain injury. She continued to use the oils on her son as she sat with him rubbing them on his feet and brain stem area and also down his spine whenever she could. Only one, the combination of oils called Brain Power, she would apply to his thumb and press it against the roof of his mouth in order to apply it as close to the brain as possible. (Keep in mind that all oils are not okay to use internally. The Young Living Oils are therapeutic grade oils and we knew which ones to use internally and which ones could not be used that way.)

The doctors could not believe Connie’s son’s miraculous recovery. But like the parents in this CNN story she did not tell them all she was doing to help him in using alternatives. Although I think she did in the end.

I also remember little Lazarus (Lazzie), the little black Chi-weeny dog (Chihuahua/Dachshund) we got from my sister. He was only between six and eight weeks old when he ran under a rocking chair at exactly the wrong time. As he did the rockers came down on his tiny head crushing it. The injury was so bad they heard his head crack and blood was coming out of his mouth, etc. They too were told there was no hope for him and he should just be put to sleep or he would die from the brain injury soon anyway.

That is when my niece, Kindred, called sobbing and begging me to hurry and bring my oils to see if they could help him. When I got there he was still crying out in pain. So I immediately covered his little head with all the oils known to stop pain, bruising, and swelling to prevent any further brain damage from occuring – like Valor, Peppermint, Lavender, and Helichrysum and Frankincense. I also applied Brain Power to the roof of his little mouth with my pinky finger. His crying stopped quickly. I then took him hom with me and stayed up all night layering the oils over and over this way on his little head.

To everyone’s amazement he recovered rapidly and was just as normal as he could be the rest of his life and was so full of life and so much fun! My sister told me he was mine because he would never have lived had I not known what to do for him. So I named him the most fitting name I could think of, Lazarus, because it was as if he had come back to us from the dead. Our sweet little Lazzie, with all the joy he brought to us, was worth every bit of that effort and so much worth the effort I had expended in learning about the oils in order to know what to do to help him!

Merrill Osmond Recovers Using Aromatherapy – Learn More

What a shame people are not told that there are many alternatives, used freely in other countries, that are restricted in ours because the pharmaceutical giants want no competition because they know how well these alternatives work …. Check out this Pharma link to learn more about the oils that brought little Lazzie back to us and the same oils that helped Merrill Osmond (Yes one of the famous Osmond Brothers and brother to Donnie and Marie. His story is on our site also.), when I worked with him to be able to wean off his medications after 20+ years on them, you can go to the alternatives section of our website at And there you can listen to an NPR radio interview I and Kathy Farmer, an expert in the oils, did on the subject of antidepressant adverse effects and how the oils help with that.

Family says fish oil helped son recover from traumatic brain injury

(In reading this story everyone should keep in mind that the Omega 3 oil from flax seed works just as well as fish oil in making these changes in the brain. That was made very clear to us as when attending a worldwide conference at the National Institutes of Health in 2002. They explained that we only hear more about fish instead of flax because the fish industry has more money to fund the studies)

WITHDRAWAL WARNING: In sharing information on alternatives to antidepressants I always recommend that you also give reference to my CD on safe withdrawal, Help! I Can’t Get Off My Antidepressant!, so that we do not have more people dropping off these drugs too quickly – a move which I have warned from the beginning can be even more dangerous than staying on the drugs!

The FDA also now warns that any abrupt change in dose of an antidepressant can produce suicide, hostility or psychosis. These reactions can either come on very rapidly or even be delayed for months depending upon the adverse effects upon sleep patterns when the withdrawal is rapid!
