Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

Any treatment will take time...Haste makes waste.
Why do you presume? - simply ask her doctor!- you have the right...
Stick to one system of Medicine / Combining from different sources may end up in dangerous drug interaction...

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
