Epilepsy cured when parents stop all meds and use high fat diet only

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?)

Indiana CPS Drops Case Against Family Giving Daughter Hemp Oil for Epilepsy

Last month (September 2017) we published the story about Jaelah Sue from Indiana, and the struggle her parents were having with CPS and Riley Children’s Hospital in Indianapolis over her medical care.

Jaelah Sue was diagnosed with epilepsy at Riley Children’s Hospital, and her parents had great success in allegedly reducing her seizures from 50+ a day to 2-4 a day using CBD Oil (also known as “Charlotte’s Web Hemp Oil”).

CBD Oil is made from hemp (not marijuana), which is not psycho-active (produces a “high”) and is legal in all 50 states.
