How crazy this must have seemed back in 1994!
Seems like even back then the Dr’s knew drugs would always trump diet even though the success rate of the keto diet was 50-70%. No drugs at the time could even come close to that. And the one doctor still insisted they should try even more drugs to help Charlie even after Keto. Ugh!
This is how the Charlie Foundation started. If you don’t know what the Charlie Foundation is check out their site. https://charliefoundation.org
Charlie’s dad Jim Abrams, was the creator of the movies Airplane and The Naked Gun (and many more comedies)
" 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. "
