Epilepsy Awareness Month: Follow-up Interview with Christy Shake

Trish Hughes Kreis of Robertssister.com has added another Epilepsy related article interview with one of her long time followers Christy Shake who cares for her son, earlier today (11/9 @ 6:47pm).  I have provided you with the first question below to provide you with a glance of what’s covered.  Happy reading.


Robert’s Sister: I interviewed you in November 2012 and I am curious what changes have occurred in the last four years. Please remind us how epilepsy has affected your life.
In February of 2014, I began treating my twelve-year-old son Calvin’s epilepsy with a homemade THCA cannabis oil, a boy who, in the ten years since his diagnosis, had failed as many antiepileptic drugs. At the time we added the cannabis oil to his regimen, he was taking high doses of two pharmaceutical drugs, Keppra and Onfi, a benzodiazepine. We decided to wean the benzodiazepine because Calvin’s behavior had become intolerable; he screamed and flailed much of the time and didn’t sleep well at all. It was clear to us it was due to the drugs.




I would like to thank you for reading and hopefully commenting on the articles posted, both by my own articles as well as guest articles from individuals, groups and companies of which pertain to topics from, caregiving, chronic pain, government topics, treatments and more. If you have other issues you would like to see covered, please send me an email and I will see what I can find to help. 
Thank you,

Richard Kreis

    Save Money on Epilepsy Pillows

    Produced by UK Healthcare Professionals,
    Don and Christine Alderton – a pharmacist and a health visitor –
    to help prevent their son dying during sleep seizures.

    US Epilepsy Societies can now offer their families and web site visitors a special discount at this web page:


    I should be grateful if you would let your families and web visitors know of this opportunity:

    Now is a very good time for US buyers: the ‘Brexit’ vote has made the currency exchange rate very favourable, and together, the special 15% web site discount and 15% cheaper GBP makes Sleep-Safe about 30% cheaper than the ‘headline’ price.

    Best wishes,


    Don Alderton
