 JIMABRAHAMS2You can’t defer your medical destiny.

This week’s episode continues to educate the masses on the ketogenic phenomenon.  Jim Abrahams is not only a notorious filmmaker but a vocal proponent for the diet that is changing lives.  Jim’s son Charlie suffered from up to 100 seizures a day at age one.  After extensive research, dedicated father Jim decided on a diet rich in fats and low in carbohydrates.  With this ketosis approach, he was able to reverse the seizure patterns and watch notable improvement unfold before his very eyes.

Jim’s passion didn’t stop there.  He developed The Charlie Foundation in honor of his son’s struggles and eventual triumph.  His goal is to make more and more people aware of the benefits of a ketone rich diet as a means to not only improve brain function but a way in which to tackle some of the medical maladies that seem beyond our control.

Jim Abrahams reminds us that our medical destiny cannot be deferred.  It is something we and we alone must face, be it with the assistance of western medicine, the personal responsibility of eating our way to health, or a combination of both.  One thing is certain though, Jim’s choice to move through these challenges with purpose and ownership saved the life of his son, Charlie.
