Jim Abraham from CharlieFoundation.org discovered the ketogenic diet because of his son Charlie. In 1993, 11-month-old Charlie Abrahams developed difficult to control epilepsy. As a last resort, while Charlie was experiencing multiple daily seizures and multiple daily medications, his parents turned to a Ketogenic Diet for help. The diet worked. Charlie became seizure and drug-free within a month. He was on the diet for five years and now eats whatever he wants. He has never had another seizure.
Listen in today as Jimmy and Jim discuss this personal discovery and triumph for the Abrahams family as well as the mission of The Charlie Foundation for Ketogenic Therapies. The foundation was founded in 1994 to provide information about diet therapies for people with epilepsy, other neurological disorders, and select cancers and has since expanded its focus to not only champion ketogenic diet therapy for epilepsy, but provide up-to-date information regarding its expanded use and variations.
