Writing credits:

Director Yasmin C. Rams opens the door into her past and goes back to the point where she has her first epileptic episode at seven years old. Since she has suffered from epilepsy from childhood, she describes the different symptoms she has had as well as all the different medications she has taken. It has now reached a point that all medications are threatening to permanently damage her liver. Her father also is afflicted with Parkinson’s disease and together they talk about what they could do differently. After meeting several people who have healed themselves from cancer, Parkinson’s disease, and multiple sclerosis, she makes the drastic decision to stop taking the pills and find a cure for herself through alternative medicine. Her investigation takes a closer look at Chinese medicine, marijuana, Ayurveda, and many other ancient practices. She also reevaluates modern medicine in order to decide which path she should take. This quiet and endearing documentary makes us all look at the choices we are currently making and gives us an opportunity to see life from a different perspective. (Shelly Schoeneshoefer)
