Kelli McGowan was diagnosed with FTD, Frontotemporal dementia in 2012 and in 2013 she was also diagnosed with ALS. She was not worried too much about the ALS because the FTD was killing her. She was volatile, could not think, and in pain with the FTD symptoms. On top of that she had the ALS symptoms of muscle wasting, difficulty swallowing, holding things and needed help to go to the bathroom.

Kelli did a lot of holistic things to heal ALS, she took supplements, did homeopathic treatments, she ate a very clean diet, filtered her water, consulted holistic professionals. She had previously done a lot of research on holistic healing so was ahead in that area, yet now she had difficulty reading, thinking and organizing her thoughts. She read and researched whenever her mind was clear.

After an interview aired on a local station for dementia advocacy, a journalist offered to follow her story if she was willing to attend a zhineng qigong retreat. Kelli was very skeptical, and almost declined but finally decided to attend.

Kelli experienced such improvement in the weeklong qigong retreat that she ended up staying a month. Friends assisted her and at the end of the month both her FTD and ALS symptoms were greatly improved.

Kelli has continued her study of qigong, by attending retreats and studying. Today she practiced qigong daily online from her home and both her FTD and ALS symptoms continue to diminish. Today Kelli is over 90% improved as she continues her healing journey.

Here is information about the upcoming online qigong course:
