The ‘miracle’ prescription for the boy who suffered 30 seizures a day? A high-fat diet - Hawaii News Now

The health care providers at Milestones in Downtown Honolulu use medication and therapy to treat neurodevelopmental conditions like cerebral palsy, autism and ADHD.

But for patients like James Christiansen, food is also prescribed.

The 8-year-old eats foods like cream, ground beef and avocado to stay healthy.

Because of a brain injury, James suffered up to 30 seizures a day and medications robbed him of his vitality.

“It’s just heartbreaking because we knew how he really is. He’s real personal, vivacious, thriving and then when he’s sedated all day, he can’t do much,” said Dana Christiansen, James' adopted mother.
