Listen to This!
I have a very special treat for you in episode 27. In it, I have a conversation with Ngaio Walton, the mother of Venus Walton. If you haven’t heard of Ngaio and Venus, you soon will.
Ngaio, lives with her husband, Zane, and her two daughters, Venus and Isla, in northern New Zealand.
When Venus was around 6 months old, it was obvious to Ngaio and Zane, that something serious was going on with little Venus. She was not hitting a lot of the markers that girls her age should be.
Venus soon developed seizures, that increased in intensity and frequency, from a condition known as phenylketonuria, a condition where her body couldn’t produce a necessary enzyme to break down protein.
Venus did not respond very well at all to the treatments provided by her doctors and it was obvious to Ngaio and Zane that their daughter was on a very dangerous downhill path.
This is when Ngaio decided to research alternative medicines for her daughter leading her to Hemp CBD oil, with questionable legality in New Zealand.
Because of the amazing success of this treatment, Venus now has a very normal childhood and is completely free of seizures AND the need to take any more CBD oil. Because of this, Ngaio has become a very vocal advocate for legalizing medical cannabis and has gained notoriety in New Zealand and now the rest of the world.
I think you will really like Ngaio’s amazing story. I do have to apologize for the quality of the sound due to a telephone connection, a few happy kids and an amorous rooster, but I’m sure that you will resonate with Ngaio’s triumphant story and message.
In this interview Ngaio talks about:
• How Ngaio and Zane first became aware that Venus was suffering from a rare form of epilepsy and what life was like for little Venus.
• How the doctors treated this rare condition and how Venus responded to them.
• How Ngaio and Zane finally came to the decision to try the hemp CBD oil.
• How Ngaio obtained and treated Venus with the hemp CBD oil.
• How Venus responded to the hemp CBD oil.
• The surprising response by the doctors treating Venus to their use of the hemp CBD Oil.
• How well Venus is doing today.
• How their friends and family responded to their treating Venus with the hemp CBD oil.
• How the authorities have responded to their use of hemp CBD oil with Venus.
• How Ngaio has become very vocal about the need to legalize cannabis in New Zealand.
• How the dramatic change in Venus’s health has affected Ngaio and her family.
• Ngaio’s plans for the future.
• Ngaio’s advice for the many parents around the world, who face similar circumstances, where their only option to obtain cannabis to treat their very sick children, may be to break the law.
