I read this article and, while using medicinal pot to lesson a child's seizures, I wonder why the child's parents were not offered the Ketogenic Diet. An important high-fat dietary treatment, the Ketogenic Diet has been used successfully at prestigious medical institutions such as Johns Hopkins and the Mayo Clinic since the 1920s to treat -- and in many instances cure -- pediatric epilepsy. Thanks to the work of the Charlie Foundation ( CharlieFoundation.org ), created by Jim Abrahams, today there are over 150 medical institutions worldwide that administer the diet. I feature the Ketogenic Diet in my book, "HONEST MEDICINE: Effective, Time-Tested, Inexpensive Treatments for Life-Threatening Diseases," and would be happy to share resources with any parent who is interested in learning about the diet, which must be administered carefully by dietitians who are trained in how to administer it. Most children only need to be on the diet for approximately two years. Then they can eat just about anything. Seems preferable to me (and to many thousands of parents who love the diet) than most other treatments out there -- including medical marijuana.

Meryl Streep put the Ketogenic Diet “on the map” by starring in the made-for-television movie,“First Do No Harm.” She played the mother of a little boy who endured many rounds of debilitating anti-seizure medications before being put on the diet. Ms. Streep was recently given an award by the Charlie Foundation for her efforts to educate parents about the Ketogenic Diet.

Thanks very much for giving me the opportunity to help spread the word about this wonderful, but often overlooked, treatment.

I have ordered prescription drugs (without a prescription) online from http://inhousegeneric.info about two years ago, and was pleased with the speed and quality of service.
I'm thinking of doing the same thing with my medication. The meds is expensive, but there is a generic version available overseas.
I love the idea of taking responsibility for my own health (or lack of health) and skipping the bureaucracy... to say nothing of having to drive to the doctor, wait in line, yet again, to get a prescription refilled.

I have used http://qgeneric.info/#stti for about 3 years and find their products to be reliable and speedily delivered. The Support team are very promt and helpful in solving any issues that arise,caused by my errors not the company's. I was a little sceptical initially about buying generic products rather than brand names. However, the Mens' Health products I have bought have been equally as efficatious as the brand names at a fraction of the cost.

http://inhousegeneric.com is an honest and genuine online pharmacy. We were not sure at first because this was our first order of generic medication from this pharmacy. Although it takes a bit long because it got stuck with custom, we are completely sastisfied with this online pharmacy.
You won't be disappointed with them. Their customer service is great too although they need to improve their phone system a bit more. If you need to call them just be sure to call during their working hours. Other than that we highly and sincerely recommend this online pharmacy to everyone.

Naturally, I am skeptical of everything online. http://inhousegeneric.com is legitimate. I placed my first order for the smallest amount possible. It arrived sooner than expected. I didn't pay the extra money for speedy air mail. I placed another order that was much larger and it came right on time. I will definitely use this company again for even larger orders now that I trust them. They also give you discounts every time you place an order which is cool. One thing to keep in mind is if you place a larger order, they will send half in one shipment, and then the other half after that to avoid customs scrutinizing your package. I am very happy, I no longer need to pay tons of money to see a doctor and therapist (and have them tell me a bunch of stuff I already know) in order to get my medication.

have been researching for months and reading reviews for each pharmacy and finally decided to take the plunge and order from one. After coming to the conclusion http://goo.gl/9Me2E1 seemed the most safest and had the best feedback I ordered my pills. Was very apprehensive at first due to cc fraud, ell and they are good i would definetely recommend and purchase againspam and being generally ripped off (have not received one spam email and no cc fraud) order process and checkout was simple.
placed my order on my debit card and was charged straight away and received confirmation email immediately. choose the speedy del trackable and was advised del would be 7-9 days and order was placed on the 08/01. was just about to email them today to chase up as now 15 days but behold package had been posted through my door. packaging seems as shown on webiste. apart from small delay on advertised shipping time i have been generally please with the pharmacy.
wont be taking the pills for another few weeks yet but all going well and they are good i would definetely recommend and purchase again from them.
