Gardasil was approved by the FDA in June of 2006. Beginning in July of the same year, reports started appearing in VAERS as select parents around the country found their daughters living a nightmare. A multitude of debilitating, sometimes deadly, adverse events began to surface post-Gardasil. Parents found themselves going from one specialist to another, searching for the cause of their daughters new illnesses. No answers were available.

In 2007, after taking Gardasil, Alexis Wolf and her mother, Tracy, were thrust into the same nightmare.

In the beginning, Alexis exhibited symptoms typical of many psychiatric disorders. Months went by before it was discovered she was suffering from daily seizures that were slowly destroying her brain.

After years of living the nightmare, Alexis's mother felt she was left with no alternative but to file suit against the manufacturer of Gardasil, Merck and Company. Shortly after, KOAT Channel 7 News aired the story.

Luckily for Alexis, Dr. Ken Stoller, President of the International Hyperbaric Medical Association, watched the program. Moved by compassion for this young girl who was fighting for her very life, Dr. Stoller phoned her mother and volunteered to treat Alexis at no charge. He believed that hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) could reduce the effects of the neurological damage Alexis had suffered.

Dr. Stoller explained that HBOT is a medical treatment that helps the body heal itself by making oxygen under pressure available directly to tissues and organs. HBOT reduces swelling of the central nervous system, including the brain, repairs the blood-brain barrier, and stabilizes cell membranes. It increases the ability of white blood cells to clean up damaged areas, and ultimately creates a whole new supply of blood vessels.

He went on to explain that much of the damage associated with injured tissue occurs when the blood supply comes back into the injured area, in Alexis's case, the brain. Often, when blood re-enters injured tissue, white blood cells overactivate and begin attacking the cells they were meant to protect. HBOT prevents this type of overactivation. He also explained that under the supervision of accredited physicians and highly-trained technicians, HBOT is virtually side-effect free.

For the first time in almost three years, Tracy felt there might be real hope for her daughter. After years of trying to find answers and a way to cure her daughter, she now had a viable option. She and Alexis were more than ready.

Has HBOT worked? Here is what Tracy says:

When Alexis began treatments, her seizure episodes had already begun to get worse, again. She was having continuous seizure activity. She was at the point of having to wear adult diapers at all times. She was also vomiting 4 times a day or more.

As we progressed through the treatments, I noticed that she became more aware. Her left eye was not drooping as much. She was not snoring like she used to and was sleeping better, more soundly. Soon, the seizures got smaller and less frequent. The vomiting stopped. She could control her bladder.

Now, Alexis has completed 33 dives -- she is no longer vomiting. Seizures have reduced to 1 or 2 semi-big episodes a day. She is sleeping even better. She is able to do math and homework that was given to her a year ago but was unable to complete.

I do not expect her to be 100% like she was before, but I have seen such wonderful improvements over the last 33 treatments. I would highly recommend this treatment to all the Gardasil girls!

Dr. Stoller is our hero!

Perhaps Dr Stoller and his staff at the Hyperbaric Medical Center of New Mexico have given Tracy and Alexis a way to wake up from the nightmare they have been living for the last three years. If so, they are indeed real, living heros.

Dr. Stoller believes HBOT treatments can help mitigate any type of neurological damage whether it be from injury, disease, or injection. If you have further questions about what HBOT can, or cannot do, visit the Hyperbaric Medical Center of New Mexico website for more information. If you do not live near New Mexico, he will be more than happy to refer you to a licensed treatment center nearby.

Alexis and her journey through HBOT
Alexis has completed 33 'dives' to date out of 80. Already, she is showing remarkable improvements (as shown in the charts included in the video above). Maybe, for Tracy and Alexis there will be an end to the Gardasil nightmare they have been living.
