Nodding Syndrome - http://www.thelancet.com/journals/lancet/article/PIIS0140-6736(12)60126-3/fulltext - Northern Uganda and South Sudan, Africa -
"Children who come down with nodding syndrome often lose their ability to interact normally, lose their attention span, and cannot feed themselves. Some children die, but many of the cases are related to seizures, including drownings and getting burned by fires. 'The children have a real cognitive decline', Dowell said. 'These were healthy, growing kids, as young as 5 or 6 years old who once they get this, they waste away, they are malnourished, they drop out of school, and they become completely dependent on their caregivers.'
Last year, when The Lancet visited Witto Payam, a community in South Sudan, nodding syndrome had created a village of vacant children. Some 70 children with the disease gathered in a small clearing in the centre of the community. They sat next to their parents, or each other. Each seemed distracted. Some used sticks to draw lines in the ground. Some leaned on an adult. One girl was asleep in the dirt.
'My daughter was a normal girl, and then at age 6 [years], she started nodding whenever she saw food', said Rasul Kegi, a mother. '3 years later, she started convulsing. Her mental ability is so diminished. Even when I call her sometimes, she doesn't respond.'
Fred Hartman, Management Sciences for Health's Country Lead for South Sudan and supervisor for the USAID - funded Sudan Health Transformation Project II, has worked for 30 years in Africa...in 2010 he was shocked. 'I've been all over the world, and I've never seen anything like it', he said. 'All the children look like they have cerebral palsy. So many of the kids are malnourished. You bring them food and they can't eat it. And by the time you make the diagnosis, it's too late for the children. It's really sad.'” - The Lancet, Volume 379, Issue 9813, Page 299, 28 January 2012

Ketogenic Diet  Pediatric Neurology, Johns Hopkins Hospital, Baltimore, MD - 21287-7247, USA. - The ketogenic diet is an effective alternative therapy used to control intractable seizures. It was originally described in 1921 as a way to duplicate and prolong the beneficial effects that fasting appeared to have on seizure control. It involves consuming a calorie-restricted diet in which the fat: carbohydrate + protein ratio ranges from 2:1 to 5:1.
Recent prospective studies in children demonstrate that about 50% of children will continue on the diet for at least a year, with 40-50% of those starting the diet having a >50% reduction in seizures after 12 months. When the diet is discontinued it is usually due to lack of efficacy...Nutritional well-being is a constant concern.  Renal stones have occurred in 5-8% of children on the diet; lipids are elevated.

Rogers, Bob - See page 7 - http://www.worldprayercenter.org/wp-content/uploads/2013/12/2014-fasting-magazine.pdf - Starve Cancer to Death with the Ketogenic Diet - By Thomas N Seyfried, PhD, Boston College - source Bottom Line Personal Volume 34, #12, 6/15/2011 - "The ketogenic diet is very high in fat- the ratio is four grams of fat to one gram of protein/carbohydrate. It has long been used to control epilepsy and is offered as an epilepsy treatment at hundreds of hospitals and clinics around the world, including The Johns Hopkins Epilepsy Center, Mayo Clinic and Mattel Children’s Hospital a UCLA.  It eases epilepsy by stabilizing neutrons (brain cells).  It does so by reducing glucose (blood sugar), the main fuel used by neutrons and increasing ketones (beta-hydroxybutyric acid and aceto-acetic acid), a by-product of fat metabolism used by neutrons when glucose levels are low.
Reducing glucose and increasing ketones play key roles in fighting cancer as well...
If you are in relatively good health (aside from the cancer, of course), it is best to start the ketongenic diet with a water-only fast for 48 to 72 hours, which will quickly put you in ketosis, the production of a therapeutic level of ketones. This fast should be guided by a health professional.  If you are fragile or in poor health you can skip the water fast and initiate ketosis with the ketongenic diet reducing carbohydrates to less than 12 grams a day. This should produce ketosis within 2 or 3 weeks.  Working with a nutritionist you will find the fat/protein/carbohydrate ratio that works best for you to l'wer glucose and increase ketones and recipes and meal plan that consistently deliver those ratios. A food diary, a food scale and the use of a “KetoCalculator' (available on Web sties such as www.KetoCalculator.com/ketocalc/diet.asp ) are necessary tools to implement the ketogenic diet. Helpful: The oncological nutritionist Miriam Kalamian, EdM, MS, CNS, managed her own son’s brain tumor with the ketongenic diet and she counsels cancer patients around the world in the implementation of the diet. Find more information on her web site, www.DietaryTherapies.com ."
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ketogenic_Diet  "The ketogenic diet is indicated as an adjunctive treatment in children with drug-resistant epilepsy...The ketogenic diet is a first-line therapy for patients with seizures due to pyruvate dehydrogenase (E1) deficiency and glucose transporter 1 deficiency syndrome. Both these disorders prevent the body using carbohydrate as fuel, resulting in a dependency on ketone bodies...The ketogenic diet is a very high fat diet that relies on inducing a state of ketosis. The diet typically provides 3-4 grams of fat for every 1 gram of carbohydrate and protein combined. It is most commonly used for the treatment of epilepsy. The diet is essentially comprised of 88% fat,10% protein, and 2% cabohydrates."

"The epileptic attacks continued. After a few treatments the attacks stopped, and the doctor reversed the poles to increase the blood flow in the arteries.  A 40-year-old man suffered for 3 years with epileptic attacks with complete loss of consciousness and intense headaches. His intellect steadily gave way, and he had a hard time at work. He couldn’t read at all during this time, it was impossible for him to express ideas, and his memory was gone. His brain was treated with (a mild gentle) galvanic current, without result. Then the sympathetic (the nerves in the lumbar and thoracic of the back) were galvanized, and after no trace of the disorder remained, the treatment ended.  The patient recovered his mental functions after treatment."  (More effective modalities are available today.)

 Branham, William - http://endtimemessage.info/SupernaturalBook-6.pdf - "'I just learned your brother is about 30 years old and he‘s about 6 feet tall. He‘s had epilepsy since he was 3 years old. It‘s hereditary. Your grandfather had it too.'  That‘s right, Brother Bill. Did you see a vision? 'Yes, Bud, and I have.  Thus saith the Lord‘ for you. Ask your brother to come up here to your cabin. The 1st time he has an epileptic fit, take the shirt he is wearing, throw it in your wood stove and say, This I do in the Name of Jesus Christ. As long as he believes, he‘ll never have another seizure. Do you believe me enough to do that?'  Yes, I‘ll do it...Bud followed them down to Fort St. John, got his brother and took him back to his cabin. The next morning, while Bud was down at the corrals feeding the horses, his brother fell into a seizure that sent him violently thrashing around the cabin‘s wooden floor. Lela Southwick‘s 1st instinct was to jump through the nearest window. Then she remembered what Bill had told her husband. Although she was a small woman, Lela straddled her brother-in-law and pulled at his shirt until the buttons popped. When she finally managed to pull the shirt off of him, she threw it in the fire, saying, 'This I do in the name of Jesus Christ.' Immediately he stopped kicking and thrashing. Within minutes he was sitting up talking to her.. Bud was eager to tell Bill about his brother‘s healing. 'Brother Branham, he hasn‘t had a seizure since the day my wife threw his shirt in the fire.' 'And he won‘t ever have another one, as long as he believes it,' Bill said.'"

Copeland, Kenneth - 5/2011 Magazine - A Man of Few Words - "The devil was tearing at that girl something awful.  She  was having a hard, hard seizure.  But instead of reacting to it, I just stood there and checked my spirit.  When I did, I heard this real big on the inside of me, 'No! No! No!'  I hollered it just as loud as I heard it,  'No! No! No!'  Then then Lord spoke up inside me again and said, 'Hush nowThat's enough'...She never had another seizure from that night on."

Zombies - http://www.demonbuster.com/caribbe1.html - "The figure of the zombie, which was imported from Africa, is the Voodoo belief that a corpse can be reanimated by a spirit who can then be made to obey mechanically the wishes of the Voodoo priest. One of the most curious aspects of voodooism is the incorporation into its rites of portions of Catholic rituals, prayers, liturgies and the reverence of the saints. Most Voodoo services to honor the loa are conducted by priests before an altar covered with candles and surrounded with the pictures and statues of the saints, amid hymns addressed to them and to the Virgin Mary."

WARNING

 
Artificial sweeteners such as NutraSweet, Spoonfulls, and Equal (Aspartamine) are DANGEROUS [and possibly sucralose/Splenda and Sweet-n-Low (saccharin)] often found in diet sodas.  50% of aspartame is phenylalanine, an amino acid.  Too much in the brain causes serotonin to drop, leading to depression, craving for carbohydrates, and brain tumors.  40% of aspartame is aspartic acid, an amino acid, that when NOT bound to protein causes an increase in aspartate, which may contribute to epilepsy, Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, and fetus damage.  Same may apply to glutamate.  10% of aspartame is methanol (wood alcohol) which converts to formaldehyde, which can damage the retina, optic nerve, DNA replication and the fetus.Also see 11/03 Townsend Letter for Doctors & Patients www.mercola.com   www.dorway.com/betty/ms.txt

https://hightimes.com/news/uk-government-grants-6-year-old-permission-use-medical-marijuana/ 3/21/2018 "The UK government grants 6-year-old permission to use medical marijuana. Hannah Deacon, the mother of Alfie Dingley, told the British press about the decision on Tuesday. Deacon said that the government will grant them a special license to use cannabis oil. Cannabis oil with THC (steroid) is illegal in the UK, although it can be easily obtained elsewhere in Europe.  Alfie has a rare form of epilepsy known as PCDH19. Researchers believe that he and only 4 other boys in the world have the condition. The disease can cause up to hundreds of seizures per day. Alfie, of Kenilworth, England, and his family had moved to the Netherlands in 2017 in order to legally procure cannabis oil."

https://www.statnews.com/2018/06/25/fda-approves-countrys-first-medicine-made-from-marijuana/ 6/25/2018 "The drug, GW Pharmaceuticals’ Epidiolex, is made of cannabidiol, or CBD, a component of marijuana that does not give users a high.  It is given as an oil, and in clinical trials, it was shown to reduce the number of seizures by about 40 % in patients with Dravet or Lennox-Gastaut syndromes...Before GW can market Epidiolex, the Drug Enforcement Administration will have to reclassify CBD, which in this case, because it comes from marijuana, is considered a Schedule I drug, meaning it has no medical value and a high risk of abuse. The agency is expected to do so within 90 days...Patients with Lennox-Gastaut and Dravet syndromes, which typically emerge in the first few years of life, can suffer from debilitating and recurrent seizures, sometimes dozens a day. One in 5 patients is estimated to die before they are 20 years old.  There are 6 other drugs approved to treat seizures associated with Lennox-Gastaut, but none approved for Dravet.  Although Epidiolex was only approved for the 2 specific conditions, analysts expect doctors to prescribe it off label for a variety of epileptic diseases. It comes from a proprietary strain of cannabis grown by GW that has been bred to have high levels of CBD and low levels of THC, the component that does make people high.  The FDA has previously approved synthetic medications that resemble or are identical to THC. The drugs are listed as Schedule II and Schedule III, meaning they have medicinal value but also potential for abuse. Many families have moved to states where marijuana is legal medically or recreationally so they could treat their children with CBD on their own. But experts have said that having a regulated medication with standard dosing and supply is crucial for patient safety, a sentiment echoed by Gottlieb in his statement Monday.".

Important Health Benefits Of Marijuana you should know. 7/11/2014 (edited)

"Cannabis sativa hemp plant also contains 2 chemicals that seem to benefit a body in crisis. One is cannabidiol, or CBD, which treats numerous health conditions without causing a 'stoned' feeling (psychiatric symptoms).  The other is tetrahydro-cannabinol, or THC, a (hallucinogenic) natural pain-reliever."  (Post shares National Cancer Institutes report that mice and rats have shown that (CBD) cannabinoids may also inhibit tumor growth by causing cell death, blocking cell growth and blocking blood vessel development needed for tumor growth.) "In 2007, California Pacific Medical Center in San Francisco announced that cannabidiol (CBD) may halt the spread of cancer by rendering useless the Id-1 gene, that cancer cells imitate frequently, causing them to multiply throughout the body. In Spain and Israel, researchers are agreeing that the compounds in marijuana are dominant enough to annihilate cancer cells completely."

The Small but Vital Miracles of Marijuana - 8/26/2015 - "Now, experts are familiar with only 2 cannabinoids out of the nearly 90 that at least one breed of marijuana plant, the sativa plant, contains. These 2 cannabinoids are tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD). From knowledge of these 2 chemicals has come synthetic cannabinoids: Marinol and Sativex."  Holistic Healing Benefits of the Sativa Strain - 9/1/2014 - "3 main categories define most cannabis strains: indica, sativa, and hybrid (a combination of the 1st 2 categories)"
