First Do No Harm is a 1997 television film, directed by Jim Abrahams, about a boy whose severe epilepsy, unresponsive to medications with terrible side effects, is controlled by the ketogenic diet. The director and producer, Jim Abrahams, was inspired to make the film as a result of his own experiences with his son Charlie.

Charlie developed a very serious seizure condition that proved intractable despite several medications and surgery. His cognitive decline was described by Abrahams as "a fate worse than death". He came across the diet in a book on childhood epilepsy by Dr John Freeman, director of the Pediatric Epilepsy Center at Johns Hopkins Hospital. Charlie was started on the diet and rapidly became seizure free. In addition, medications were tapered and his mental development restored.

The Charlie Foundation to Help Cure Pediatric Epilepsy was founded in 1994 after twenty month old Charlie Abrahams, was cured of his epilepsy by the ketogenic diet at Johns Hopkins Hospital.

Resurrected - A Medical Journey


This film is based on a true story about a group of catatonic patients, who miraculously though temporarily, come back to life during the summer of 1969. These post-encephalitis lethargica patients awaken after being unconscious for thirty years. Their caregiver, medical researcher Dr. Oliver Sacks, prescribes a drug trial never before tested on catatonic individuals suffering from sleeping sickness.
First patient film character Leonard Lowe: contracted encephalitis as a young adolescent. As a middle aged man of forty-nine he receives an experimental drug and is revived from his degenerative neurological condition.

Chiron 'The Great Healer, Redeemer'

The parameters between ages 48-51 marks a period for Chiron's first return (to its natal degree) the comet-planetoid ushers in a new life phase. This astrological turning point represents a momentous watershed opportunity. It is associated with experiences described by the Chinese character for 'crisis'. The re-visit makes accessible primal patterns (inscriptions of deeply, unresolved wounds) that can evolve and unfold as fresh landmarks transformed from the source of their traumatic supply to some greater strength perfected to an absolute final purpose.

Lorenzo’s Oil: This film is about the story of parents Augusto and Michaela Odone who became brave champions for their son Lorenzo diagnosed with a terminal disease.

Unable to find a doctor capable of treating Lorenzo's rare disease, Augusto and Michaela Odone sought their own cure. The Odone's quest is recounted in the 1992 film Lorenzo's Oil. Their discovery proved successful in halting the progression of adrenoleukodystrophy (ALD).

In recognition of the parents' work, Augusto Odone received an honorary doctorate from the University of Stirling. August Odone continues to raise funds and drive the scientific task force known as The Myelin Project.

ALD is an inherited disorder. An essential transporter protein is absent in ALD affliction.

That transporter protein is utilized for metabolism of very long-chain fatty acids found in the normal diet.

Without the specific transporter protein VLCFA build-up damages the myelin insulating central and peripheral system nerves causing devastating neurological disorders.
