In 1997, when Skyler Krull was seven years old, he began having seizures. When a MRI and EEG were unable to point to a cause, Skyler’s neurologist recommended anti-seizure medication. But after trying several medications, still the seizures continued.
Just after starting seventh grade, as he was about to turn 13, Skyler’s seizures became extremely severe. Subsequent hospitalization and testing revealed a brain tumor. Skyler’s doctors felt confident that once the tumor was removed the seizures should stop. However, after a high-risk yet successful surgery at the Mayo Clinic, Skyler’s seizures actually increased to nearly continuous episodes 18 or more hours a day. Skyler was unable to attend school for two years and required around-the-clock care.
His parents continued to seek answers and took him to the best neurologists they could find who continued to recommend trials of various anti-seizure medications. This led to Skyler at one point taking more than 30 pharmaceuticals each and every day and even more in the form of rescue or emergency meds. His doctors considered Skyler’s case the most serious of all the cases at their clinic. Since both surgery and medication were ineffective, they didn’t know what to do next.
It was at that point, in 2004 that Skyler’s mother, Lisa Proctor, learned of a Spring Forest Qigong practitioner named Lesley Vincent.* From that very first meeting with Lesley, Skyler started to improve. Using the SFQ techniques she had learned from Master Chunyi Lin Lesley helped Skyler realize that he was born with the ability to help heal himself. As Skyler explains it, “Lesley gave me my power back. Until then I was powerless and I had no life.”
It took a year to safely wean Skyler off of the more than 30 drugs he had been taking. Skyler kept improving, kept following Lesley’s guidance and as he puts it, “Lesley taught me to transform my epilepsy with love.” At Lesley’s recommendation both Skyler and Lisa studied SFQ Levels 1&2 with Master Chunyi Lin.
It took time but with Lesley’s help and guidance Skyler has grown into a happy and healthy young man who is in college studying eastern healing modalities. His goal is to help others to heal themselves as Lesley helped him.
