Jim Abrahams is the founder of The Charlie Foundation, and an American Movie Director and Writer, best known for his work on movies such as Airplane! (1980), The Naked Gun (1988), and Hot Shots! (1991). In this intriguing episode, Jim talks about what it was like raising a son with severe epilepsy, the issues with the incentive structure of the modern medical system, and how the keto diet literally transformed his son’s health in a matter of days – completely reversing his epilepsy and all of the symptoms associated with it. Can keto cure epilepsy? The answer might surprise you!
