he was three years old, we put him on the so-called “ketogenic
diet,” because, after trying 20 different prescriptions, no seizure
medication helped him. NONE ever made him even close to seizure-free.
The ketogenic diet is a special method of treating epilepsy (seizure
disorders). That diet did work for him for a while, but finally,
the seizures returned, as fierce and powerful as ever. We didn’t
know what to do anymore.
We couldn’t take him off the ketogenic diet, for that made his
seizures worse altogether, so we knew that too many carbohydrates were
not good for him. We learned as much as we could about carbohydrates,
protein and oils. And finally we realized that it was not only the high
carbohydrates that made him sick, but also the wrong kinds of fat. We
learned about fats and oils and decided to put him on olive oil and
fish oil capsules. Well, even though we knew those oils were
a better choice, we didn’t see any change in his behavior
or decrease in the frequency or intensity of his seizures.
For years we changed oils, trying all kinds of renowned fish
oils on the market, from supermarket stuff to real expensive
deep sea fish capsules, but nothing ever made a dent in the
seizures he had and he didn’t get any better.
We even tried so-called “omega capsules” from a well known
autism institute. They gave us cod liver oil and evening primrose oil.
But Rick got worse. His seizures skyrocketed and he became very ill.
Then we took away all the oils, because the physicians said the worsening
seizures could be a side-effect of the oils because of Rick’s
autism. We never tried anything but olive oil after that. Although we
knew that there was something healthy about omega3/6/9 in oils, we didn’t
know what it was that was going to help Rick, so we stopped looking.
Then, after a few years of following Brian Peskin’s recommendations
for my own health-related issues and seeing good results, I was finally
confident enough and trusted Brian’s knowledge enough to try them
with my son.
It was the best choice I have made for Rick so far.
Within days of implementing the recommendations in this book,
Rick became much more stable, so that now he is almost seizure-free.
Now any seizures last for a couple of minutes and only occur once or
twice a day. Before he had major Grand Mal seizures throughout
the day. Rick is much more alert, his cognitive skills
are so much better now and he is feeling so great!
He has a radiant and shining skin, while before his skin was dry and
needed to be moisturized every day. He is not sleeping during
the day anymore and sleeps much better at night.
We have been able to reduce the ketogenic diet to a normal lower carbohydrate
diet. Now my son is growing normally. Before implementing
your recommendation, his growth had fallen very much behind average.
We are very thankful for finding this scientific information, especially
the correct EFA requirements. If following your suggestions
could help my son, imagine what it must be doing internally
for the average person! Personally, I have never felt better.
My best to you Brian,
Lilian Beukhof, Veenendaal, the Netherlands.
want to compliment you on your great new book The Hidden Story
of Cancer which I learnt about in the Townsend Letter
for Doctors and Patients.
It is wonderful to come across an author who can cut through
all the hype. You uniquely analyze huge amounts
of research and weed out studies where the conclusions
are unreliable or even in conflict with their results. Your wonderful
book draws clear conclusions from the mass of confusion.
Your book is a masterpiece. I hope it will be widely read and will thereby
help bring about a new understanding in medical circles and by the general
public of the very simple lifestyle changes that need to be followed
to greatly reduce the occurrence of cancer or even to virtually eliminate
are a real blessing to all mankind."

I told you several weeks ago, I was diagnosed with a PSA level of 6
and my biopsy said I had prostate cancer. I told my doctor I was going
to follow your plan for a month, he okayed it and kind of rolled his
eyes and said "Sure we caught it soon enough, but when you come
back, if this doesn't work, how do you want to handle it?" I told
him I would do the "seed" and he said it was good I was keeping
my options open. When I left his office, I heard him say something derogative
about alternative health.
A month later, I went back into his office, he looked through my charts
and didn't say anything. I grinned and said, "My levels
are down, aren't they?" He shook his head and said, "Yeah".
I then asked him how far they had dropped, and he replied, "1.9".
I said to him, "That's good, isn't it?"and
he goes, "Yeah" as he was still shaking his
head. I made sure that there would be no surgery, radiation, or chemo
and again he said, "Yeah, no need for that." He said that
he would like me to return in 4 months to check my PSA levels again.
I told him that it was okay because I was sure they would be down even
further by then. I showed him your book and told him it was not hype
it was science and he then asked me for your web site.
Again, thank you for your wonderful book and please feel free to use
any or all of this letter.
