Jakes Mom says, “I’m so proud of how far he has come in such a short amount of time!”
“My son Jake started having seizures at age four. We have no family history of epilepsy or seizures so this came as quite a surprise to us. It’s hard not to get emotional as I’m writing this. His seizures are life threatening. We experienced a parents worst nightmare as one evening he had a seizure, stopped breathing, was lifeless and completely unresponsive for what seemed like forever! God gave us a miracle with a second chance for Jake at living as he finally came out of the seizure thankfully without any brain damage. Jake doesn’t have the typical convulsive seizure so it took us a couple years, going through many tests, 4 different neurologists and hospitals to finally get him properly diagnosed. Once diagnosed with Epilepsy he was put on seizure meds to help control his seizures. Jake had bad reactions to the medications besides gaining a bunch of weight so we had him weaned off the meds only to find out he had developed a secondary type of seizure that left him having 100’s of seizures a day. We decided to work with his diet and we started seeing his seizures dropping down to 60 then 35 a day.
Jake’s neurologist recommended that he start the Ketogenic Diet (Low Carb High Fat). So we decided as a family to support Jake and do this diet along with him. This diet was extremely restrictive with absolutely no sugar or no carbs and higher amount of fat then we’ve ever eaten before. (2% carbs, 10% protein, 88% fat) He was allowed 3 grams of carbs per meal (carbs coming from veggies) and 10 carbs for the day to get Jake into a therapeutic level of ketosis. This type of eating was so completely foreign to us since we were so used to eating light, lean and low fat everything our whole lives. We were really struggling and pretty stressed out trying to do the diet correctly. Little did we know our lives would forever be changed after being invited to a Keto Lifestyle Workshop where someone shared all the research on how important ketones are to our overall health. Our eyes were opened to a whole new world as we learned how the use of pure therapeutic ketones would make adapting to the Ketogenic lifestyle so MUCH easier and sustainable!!!
Before Pruvit… Jake suffered from anxiety and stress in dealing with seizures and his school work. He didn’t sleep well at night waking up throughout the night. He wasn’t happy about his weight and would get tired very easily. Since adapting to the LCHF Ketogenic lifestyle and the use of therapeutic ketones I am happy to report that Jake’s seizures are hardly noticeable and he is a completely different kid! He’s dropped down 4 sizes in his clothing and is now down 25 lbs. He is much more confident, not anxious as his brain is calmed down by ketones, focuses better, sleeps great through the night, no more restless sleeping. I’m so proud of how far he has come in such a short amount of time!”
