I’m happy to see that more hospitals, like Beaumont Children’s, are opening clinics for children with epilepsy. This article states that the clinic “specializes in helping patients with drug-resistant epilepsy,” but does not say whether it has dietitians who are trained to administer the Ketogenic Diet—a diet which has helped children with seizures since the 1920s, at hospitals like the Mayo Clinic and Johns Hopkins.(Today there are over 100 hospitals worldwide that administer the diet.)

I learned a lot about this diet while doing the research for my book,“Honest Medicine,” which features 4 lifesaving treatments many doctors don’t know about, including this diet. It has lots of research behind it, as well as “patient-based evidence”—i.e., hundreds of thousands of children who have been helped by the diet. I am happy to share with your readers studies from the 1920s on, showing that the diet is effective. The best part of the diet is that, in addition to being less toxic than drugs, most children for whom it is successful (that’s 67% of children) only have to be on the diet for around two years before they are able to return to a “normal” diet.

Feel free to write to me at Julia at and I’ll send you the studies I mention here. Also, there is a tremendous amount of information at .

Thanks for letting me post here. I hope my words will help lots of people.
