    • Ketogenic Diet: A Treatment for Pediatric Epilepsy SD V-02

      On March 11, 1993, as Jim and Nancy Abrahams were pushing their son, Charlie, in a swing his head twitched and he threw his right arm in the air. Nine months later, after thousands of a variety of epileptic seizures, an incredible array of drugs, dozens of blood draws, eight hospitalizations, a mountain of EEG's, MRI's, CAT scans, and PET scan, one brain surgery, five pediatric neurologists in three cities, two homeopathists, one faith healer, and countless prayers, Charlie's' seizers were unchecked, his development "delayed," and he had a prognosis of continued seizures and "progressive retardation." Only then did the Abrahams contact Johns Hopkins Hospital and began to learn the information on this videotape. Among other things: If a first anti-epileptic medication fails, almost regardless of which one it might be, there is only a 10% - 15% chance a second medication will work, almost regardless of what that might be; In 1928 Dr. Samuel Livingston of johns Hopkins published the results of his study on the ketogenic diet. Of 304 patients treated with the diet, 43% had their seizures completely controlled and another 34% had their seizures markedly improved.; In recent decades, the ketogenic diet at Hopkins has stopped the seizures in 50% of the patients who have tried it and significantly reduced the seizures in another 25%. Charlie was taken to Hopkins where he started the diet, and since Christmas, 1993 (eight months at the release of this video) he has been seizure and drug fee.
