Happy couple begin again living together with their baby girl Amylea, the parents Nicole and Ernie Nunez were looked forward at the beginning in their lives, when she was born Amylea
Unfortunately, “The day after we went home from birth, when she had her first seizure,” Nicole said. “She has a rare form of epilepsy. They do not know exactly the type.”
Since then, the couple has tried many methods to treat their daughter. The problem was, the doctors in their city of Albuquerque, New Mexico could not find the cause seizures, so that they did not know what treatment to give her. Looking for answers, the family went to Colorado.
In Colorado, doctors have tried many treatment options and medications that do not work or have threatening side effects. Ernie decided to try cannabis oil, which is legal in Colorado, because, as he states, “The medication she’s on is difficult for her liver, and so we are trying to do something else that’s not so bad on her little body”.
And previously had cases where children had various diseases alleviated by cannabis oil and Nunez family wanted to try this method. They heard a story about a girl named Charlotte, who also had seizures, and has made a miraculous recovery thanks to a particular strain of cannabis oil, which is called Charlotte’s Web.
“I sat there for a good three weeks struggle with the doctors and trying to to convince them that into giving me the okay,” said the mother of Amelya. “”I worked with a case study team and neurology team here with children and I am hopeful that this will really work.”
And now, just this week, doctors decided to try to heal a little baby girl with cannabis oil. “For us to get permission for us to administer it, while she in the NICU, and she is patient … it’s kind of like a miracle,” Nicole said. “Because they were completely against it, saying:” No, you can not do it, you have to wait while she is an out-patient. ”
In view of these successful treatment, activist Post makes a great point “When the same amazing plant that help cure cancer, to save the lives of epileptic children, and treated countless others, is used in a hospital in one country and may be the reason for the kidnapping and imprisonment by the police in another country, something must be done. ”
