RE: CHILDHOOD SEIZURES DISORDERS DIET

'DATELINE', in its October 26, 1994 edition
featured the 'Ketogenic' diet which has been used by
the world famous JOHNS HOPKINS HOSPITAL and MEDICAL SCHOOL
as a therapy for Childhood Seizure Disorders.
'Dateline' reported that miraculous cures were obtained
in a large percentage of the patients who were
placed on the high fat diet.

JOHNS HOPKINS has published a book on the subject
which is available from the following:

EPILEPSY DIET TREATMENT
An Introduction to the Ketogenic Diet
Available at: Johns Hopkins University Press
2715  N. Charles Street
Baltimore, Maryland 21218 
USA
Phone: 410-516-6958

The Physician in charge of Johns Hopkins
Childhood Seizures Group is:
Dr. John Freeman, M.D.
Johns Hopkins Health Systems

phone  410 955-9100

There is also a foundation devoted to the
dissemination of information on the Ketogenic
diet and the miraculous results that are
achieved in many patients.  It was founded
by the father of a boy, 'Charlie' , who had
excellent results with this therapy after
being almost devastated by some of the more
widely used medications and conventional
drug therapies.  They have a video tape 
available covering their experience with the
Diet.

The Foundation is as follows:

The Charlie Foundation
1223  Wilshire Blvd., Box 815
Santa Monica, California 90403

-or-

The Charlie Foundation
501 Tenth St.
Santa Monica, California  90402

Phone: 1-800-367-5386  -OR- 1-800-367-FORKETO

The Founders name is Jim Abrams and he is personally
doing a tremendous job in putting together videos
and information covering his son Charlies experience
with the diet,  and also a wide cross section of other
patients that have been cured or helped.

Hope this info helps.
