Health Impact News Editor Comments:
Watch this video to find out how one family found a cure for the epilepsy that plagued their child by stopping medications and following the high-fat ketogenic diet. The diet together with the medications did not work – it only worked when they stopped the medications. Their original doctor had told them that their child “would be mentally challenged the rest of his life” and that he would have to take “strong medicines.” No mention or speculation is made as to why this child suddenly started developing seizures at the age of 2 (could a vaccine negative reaction have been responsible?)
The reporter unfortunately makes the mistake of saying that the ketogenic diet, which a doctor from the Mayo clinic in Rochester Minnesota prescribed, was “unconventional.” The diet has been used in treatment of epilepsy for over 80 years, and has been used extensively at Johns Hopkins Hospital since the 1920s. So when the reporter states that it was an “unusual request” for the parents to ask the doctor to take him off of all meds and trust the diet alone, it is actually not that unusual at all. Others have used the diet alone without meds to stop seizures when medications failed successfully for many years now. To learn more about the ketogenic diet and how it actually works (which is not covered in this video report), click on the links below. Also, we do not recommend Canola oil which is pictured in the video. Read about how coconut oil is being used for ketosis such as in therapy for Alzheimer’s patients .
One little boy’s case is proof that a fatty diet also known as the ketogenic diet has the potential to cure epilepsy. From The Christian Broadcasting Network.
